PHILIP W11KLT BBVIXW
A legal weakly newspaper pub lished erery Thursday afternoon At its office on North Center street, Philip, South Dakota. J. D. Bainey •ditor tad Publisher Entered as second clam matter August 2, 1907, at the postoffice at Phi'ip, South Dakota, under the Act of Congress of March 3, 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES One year $1.50, six months $.75, three months $$.40, unless paid for in advance, when a rate of $1.00 a year will be grunted. The name of Anderson Michael, of this city, has been filed with the secretary of state as the can didate of the Wickheim faction of the democratic party fop state treasurer. Stuart for treasurer, Bielski, Trnmbo and Laverv for repres entatives—so goes the Fairpla.v and the Citizen. Not a slate—-oh no I Just the choice of one Fred A. Mix, of Fort Pierre, and our old friend La very, of the same place. One thing will have to be said to the credit of Doe l^avery, he has risen from the bottom of the political ladder to the top—in his dreams. In 1902, as demo cratic candidate for coroner, he was defeated by his republican opponent. Now his dreams points to the house of representatives as a life-long republican. Bah! There are perhaps more candi dates in the field for county of fice this year than has ever been seen during any previous cam paign. While it makes it harder for the men that are endeavoring to be nominated, it gives the vot ers a chance to pick men for the county offices who are capable and to reject men who are runn ing for the single purpose of get ting lined up for an easy living during the next two years. fiftc fiavery hasn't tried to act a* administrator since H. M. Dmsmore has been county judge. That formerly was Doc's long suit. He hadn't as much nerve then as now and was content to graft the dead ones. After com petent officers took charge of the county affairs he has had to raise his fees in looking after his patients—for instance, $100 for a trip to Philip, and $124 for look ing after Ed Berger, who died in the Huston house after Doc treat ed him for a week, and after he found that Berger had just *.$125 left in his bank account. Twentytwo years in public life without an office is quite an un ique record for any man. The average office-seeker would have quite long ago—so would Doc if he had to pay the freight. But dear voter, your ambitious friend has had his hands in your pocket for the same twentytwo years and the fact that he wasn't elect ed in any of his many democratic populistic-republican campaigns is no evidence you were not pay ing Doc's pension during that time. Besides, he waH adminis trator of the Hovey estate in the meantime and that helped some The short pasture of last feet a gam la the western half of the state. Something was said in last week s issue of the Bad River News about our being a candidat for postoffice honors some time in the dim future. This is certain ly news to us, but it listens good. Were it not for the fact that Dur kee got his information from Doc La very at a midnight conference held in Doe's office within the past fortnight, when Doe and Langley told him they would pay his expenses if he would come out and beat Quigg for auditor, we would be tempted to think Bob had forgotten that we have a libel suit pending against him am: was going to support us for the place. Me Kinney's Milesville Citizen of April 12th, in speaking of a certain meeting of the Stanley County Development League held at Cottonwood last winter, tries give his readers an idea that something awful took place there In order to make things as fright ful as possible, he says that even Rainev was present. This in itself intended to be the last straw, a« tie Lavery-Mix-McKinney trio chi»o:»e to look on it. There is a wire crossed somewhere, Mac. Kither Langley didn't report it to Mix correctly, or Mix in re lating the, stuff for }*ou, just got so mad about it that he put Rainev in to make it strong. As far as the statement of our pres ence there is concerned, Mac, it is a bald-faced, inexcusable lie, tnd the balance of your remarks made while "rising to ask a ques ion" are out of the same materi al. The Milesville Citizen raises the question a« to whether a political slate was framed up at Cottonwood some time ago. It gives the names of those alleged to be present—among them the name of the Review editor. Our answer to that is, that we have not been in Cottonwood for more than a year. McKinnev arrives a* the conclusion that, because the Review is working along the same lines politically as isome other of the county papers, we must have been present at the alleged meet ing. Remarkable deduction (f) By the same toket\, we rise to ask who McKinnev gets his instruc tions from. The Milesville Citi zen and the Fort Pierre Fairplay are working tooth and nail for the same bunch of candidates. At what particular midnight session at the county hub was the orders iiiued to Mac? Tell us why is his thiwlvf 44Among year forced stock owners to sell down to the lowest limit, some of them closing out everything they own ed in that line. The result this spring is the greatest scarcity of range cattle which has existed in the western half of the state sinct the cattle raising industry was started in that section and there is a strong demand for cattle for restocking the country, with goof prices prevailing for the demand. The condition is such that it will take several years at the least to put the live stock industry on its other falsehoods MM& insinuations contained in the last issue of Pussyfoot's Philip Weak ly is the statement that Dr. C. .1. Laverv was defeated for coroner twelve years ago. We asked the doctor and he said he didn't knov that such things as coroner and post master probably worried a man of Pussyfoot's mental calib er more than they did him. We find, upon examining the records, that Dr. J. W. Dickey was elect ed coroner of Stanley county twelve years ago, and that he had no opposition."—Fairplay. Well, Freddie, we have before us a sample of the ballot used at the general election on November 4, 1902, and Lavery's name ap pears as a candidate for coroner on the democratic ticket. We art not insisting that Dr. Dickey, who was elected over Laverv, had any opposition. La very didn't amount to but little more in those days than he does now. The nincompoop whs "moulds public opinion" through the columns of the Fort Pierre Fair play—and he does it with one hand—knows nothing of the cir cumstances surrounding the pres entation to a Philip business rnm of a bill for $100 and expenses of the trip from and back to the rm mLTP wkektx itimnw, remit*, sottth dawtta, Amu, 23, m« county hub, for a consultation that lasted less than thirty min utes "but we do know," is added "that if he was called to Philip Dr Laverv left here on the early morning train and returned twentyfour hours later. While away he probably missed profes sional calls which meant more to Itini than that consultation, both in fees and in future business." We have merely cited this in stance to show in what way the dear doctor has been doing things for Stanley county people in the past. There are other doctors who have been called to Philip, pos sibly missing other calls, who have been of as much service as Laverv in this instance, for one fourth the amount he charged Yet this man, patron saint to the Fairpla.v, has engaged for many years in a perpetual crusade for the suffrage of the voters he wants to "serve the people of Stanley county" in next winter's legislature. To promote the gene ral welfare! To secure honest government? We think not. Rath er to perpetuate the private snaps of himself and his hirlings. The past week has chronicled the greatest disaster that has ever occurred among sea going vessels in the memory of man— the greatest in more ways than one. The Tetanic, the greatest ship ever built by human hands and human brains, carrying per haps the richest cargo of pas sengers ever gathered in a sin gle ship at one time, went to a watery grave, carrying down the greatest number of souls ever lost in a single disaster of its kind before. The vessel was the climax of the ship-builders' art, costing upwards of ten million dollars, in the control of a man who had given his entire life to work of that kind. A ship a crew a cargo of passengers, all repres enting perfection in their line, lost in two short hours. Homes in both the old world and the new are in mourning. Friends and relatives are missing from the humble hearth and the luxurious clubs. Some are left paupers and others succeed to immense for tunes. Men are raised to the plane of heroism, and others branded criminals and cowards, so great and far-reaching is the effect of this calamity. But in tin end men recognized their Master, ami those fifteen or sixteen hun dred souls met their Creator sing ing, "Nearer, My (lod to Thee. A fitting end to this greatest of calamities and a recognition of the power and will of a kind Father. It brings us back to realize how feeble and ineffect ive are mail's greatest efforts as compared with that great unseen Power which moves tin- universe and to which man's resistance is an idle waste of energy. "BOSS" FARMER DROWNED Pierre April 24.—George Weighert, a "boss" fanner on the Cheyenne Indian reservation lost his life by drowning in a small creek near the new town of La Plant northwest of the agen cy. He drove his team into a dee pool in the swollen small stream, and probably lost his own life in attempting to rescue the team. Gurney seeds—millet^ cane, 120 bushels fins seed corn, ste.
