With The land of Confucius is hi tine thmes of civil war, a conflict that is tearing to shreds the pres ent government. The question arises, are there men in that country who are powerful enough to establish a more ideal government and bring order out of the inferno now createdf Let us hope so. a rumor spreads over the state that Governor Vessey will resign his executive position, the time being placed in JJanuary. It is said lie has been offered a position as manager of an eastern office for a recently formed mer cantile agency. His resignation would give a chance for Lieueen ant Governor Byrne, who is a candidate to succeed him, addi tional prestige to any he now has. Edison's latest invention is to be given a fearful test, if you look at the Taft candidacy for re election as a LaFollette man. The president will make a speech acc tupanied with all the gesture? orator, before the new machine, which combines the moving pic ture and the phonograph in one symphonious contrivance, and the canned speech will be deliv ered in every part of the coun try. Labor should heed the friendly counsel of sympathizers, and take care to put in places of lead ership its best men, not its mouth ers, not those who reveal hatred implacable of employers, but men of even temper who« are themselv es clean and just and tolerant though firmly rooted in the principles of labor's cause. A movement is judged by its lead ers and to have the esteem and confidence of the public—with out which it were powerless to work reform—labor must have temperate leadership. No better movement can be made by the taxpayers of Stan ley county than to bring the pro position of funding the warrant indebtedness by issuing bonds. We have in a previous issue stat ed the benefits to be derived. A saving of 2 per cent can be made in substituting the bonds for the warrants, and the county put on a cash basis. A saving can also be effected on the face of many bilk, which are now enlarged on aeeoun* of the test thai it is mm **SILIP, SOUTH necessary to discount the rants. We should bond. Ou the face of the returns, the suffragists can find much in the Los Angeles election to boast of. But to decipher the re turns doesn't give as much op portunity for exaltation. A total of 137,000 votes was cast, of which Alexander, the winning candidate for the mayoralty, re ceived over 85,000, or nearly two thirds of the total. 73,000 wom en voted, so it is clear that about two-thirds of the male voters also were for Alexander. The men folks would have elected Alexan der with practically the same pro portion of the total vote. This is one demonstration that the women will vote about as the mer folks want them to. In North Dakota a day or two ago a woman was ordered by the courts to pay alimony. The di--, vorce suit was carried to success ful issues, that is, from the point of view of the one demanding di vorce. The separation was coun tenanced by the court. But, as it appears, the man from whom the woman sought separation is not able to earn his living and maintain himself in his accustom ed comfort. The woman had properties amounting to thou sands. Therefore, since she sou ght her freedom and was leaving behind her a helpless man, it was considered no more than just that she should pay for her freedom by paying for the support of the man. She pays alimony. Good students of public opin ion in the United States have made this observation: That Americans can get closer to big blunders without actually com mitting them than any other peo ple in the world. Time and again some wave of excitement, some political or economic heresy, will sweep over the land from Maine to Texas with apparently over whelming force, and faint-hearted patriots will throw up their hand, and feel sure we are going to destroy all we have accomplish ed in business and good govern ment. But after all when it come to the point of final and decisive action, the quiet intelligence, the plain common sense of our peo ple shows up in full control of the situation, and the supposed crisis simply disappears.—Harpers Weekly. DEATH OF JUDGE TRIPP From Yankton, his home, comet information of the sudden death of Judge Bartlett Tripp, one of the most prominent public men ot the old territory and the state. A few days before his death, he suf fered a mild paralytic stroke, but had so far recovered that he was preparing to leave for the West Indies, there to spend the winter Leaving the breakfast table Fri day morning to open a window he fell to the floor dead. Judge Tripp was president of the first state constitutional con vention, held in 1883. From 1885 to 1889, he was chief justice of Dakota territory, under appoint ment by President Cleveland. In 1893, President Cleveland appoint ed him United States minister to Austria-Hungary and he served four years in that capacity, In 1889 he was appointed by Presi dent McKinley member of the Samoan commission to settle dif ferences between the United Stats, England and Germany and was chosen chairman by the com mission. It is a matter of his tory that the work was well per formed. Coming to the territory of Da kota in 1869, Judge Tripp was one of the earliest settlers of the domain that has since been carv ed into two states and he bore well his part in the formative work that added two stars to the national emblem. Together with Judge Moody and -wa*h ,%»erai DAKOTA, DECEMBER U, IGN die as secretary, he participated in the first codification of Dako ta laws, laying the foundation for the codes of today. He was a graduate of Albany law school and was law lecturer at the South Dakota university at the time of his death. He leaves a wife, a sister of the late Senator Cushman Davis, his only child, Mrs. C. H. Dillon, having died a dozen years ago. He was about 70 years of age. Thus the people of South Da kota part with a distinguished as sociate of early years and later years, one of their number who has left the impress of his mental strength upon the creations of a progressive commonwealth. He has performed well his part as a builder for the generations that are to come. He will live in the memory of the people of South Dakota.—Huronite. Midland (From the Star.) Horace Howes came up from Pierre Saturday to look after mat ters on his ranch north of town. Tt appears that the Star was misinformed as to the cause of V. Fletcher's trouble at White River a couple of weeks ago. The facts, as Mr. Fletcher states them are that he had an Indian arrested for getting drunk and the Indian started in to "get" him, but did not succeed. He is out of the newspaper business uow, having sold the Now* is R. A. Richmond. D. A. McKillip was a passen ger for Fort Pierre on Tuesday night's train to attend court and look after business matters. Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Moore came down from West Fork Wed nesday, where Mrs. Moore and the children have been visiting for some time at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Marring ton. Mr. Moore is loading a ear with his household effects to day for Fort Pierre, near which place the family will reside duff ing the winter. Jack Buchanan and family hav at last got down on the level with the rest of us. They are comfortably settled in their new house on the river flat below the old Bastion ranch. Something yet remains to be done in the •mm A way of finishing touches to the buildings, but as it is it makes a very comfortable and commodiou* home. The old farm buildings have been moved down off the hill and the place begins to pre sent a homelike appearance. Train service on the tine of the Milwauke road to Faith, has been reduced to a three times a week mixed train. The people along the line say they are will ing to allow that to go for the winter without protest, but it must be three times a week, and not a wait of a week for open ing the line every tlflto the wind lowbs.
