With a precipitation of just about an inch, in the main part of the city there was nothing but rain, while in the eastern end of the city, and at Fort Pierre, enough snow ac companied to whiten the ground and roofs of buildings, while peo ple who came in Monday morn ing from the prairie northeast of here report that the prairie was white for tome time after the storm ended.

MAY FOR REGISTER OF DEEDS 5 S Ovando, Mont., May 2nd, 1912. Fred Mix, Esq., Editor Fairplay, Ft. Pierre, S. D. Dear Sir:—It is with reluct ance (not at present being a resi dent of Stanley county) that I feel forced by the frequent al lusions to "Scotty Brown" in recent issues of the Fairplay, to ask you for space to state a few facts and to ask a few questions in connection with the present and also with past political cam paigns in Stanley county, with which 1 had the honor and the pleasure to be connected. Had the Fairplay confined itself to boosting Dr. Lavery, this letter would not have been written. Doc has his points, but why should it be necessary in order to get him into the legislature to fill the pages of the Fairplay with bill ingsgate week after week against Rainey, Leedom, Quigg, Norby aud others? Rainey has his faults btat he also has his points. Leedom and Granger of Kadok are the two greatest hustlers on behalf of Stanley county that ever lived within its borders, lias Stanley county or any other county in tue state a cleaner, mor upright young man than Albert Norby? Is there a more compet ent, a more obliging, accomodat ing candidate before the pri maries than Jim Quigg of Philip? There never was a poor home steader who asked his help (and their uimiber is legion) who does not swear by him? Again I ask, why is it neces sary, in order to nominate Dr. Lavery, that men like these shoul be villified week after week? The Fairplay well knows that Millett was one of the hardest workers in the last legislature. If you are not aware of this, why not ask Mr. Trumbo? In discussing Millett's record, why not make mention of the $4000* obtained for the Cottonwood ex perimental r* of Kiitory CCOTTY BROWN •3 "COMES BACK" HARD Former Resident and Politician Hears Call to Battle In Letter to Fairplay Editor, Who Neglects to Publish It, he Qlvos Further Insight Into the Workings of the Lavery Bunch--Glves Editor Mix Some Sound Advice ition, as compared with the paltry sums obtained rn the prior session of the legisla ture? Didn't this "mean any thing to Stanley county," or is the publication of tax lists and the county printing the only two items that "mean anything to Stanley county?" If Scotty Brown, and Scotty Brown alone, was responsible for Dr. Lavery's defeat two years ago, why mention the fact since Scotty has left the state and Doc should naturally have a walk over. Why make the statement that "since that time Scotty has learned the truth about 1908," when you know Scotty was well aware of the truth all the time? I certainly did congratulate Dr. Lavery on his campaign two years ago, but while courteously acknowledging the Dr. 's letter, you surely don't think I ever forgot how Dr. Lavery, after urging Scotty in letter after let tof wit* rigorous language possible to become a candidate fo the state senate in 1908, "double crossed" him and contributed all in his power to his defeat? Doc himself admits this and that he "had it a-coming" two years ago. You yourself asserted in your issue after the last primary that accounts had now been squar ed lretween Dr. Lavery and my self. But to return, why write so fluently of "double crossing," and why so glibly apply the ap pellation, "Benedict Arnold," to anyone, when I refresh your mem ory by recalling the letter you sent me two days before election "to pass the word among my friends" to knife Geo. D. Mathie son for county commissioner, which needless to say was not done by me, as any fight I have ever had was joyously welcom ed in the open? Why is the Fair play against double crossing in view of the above facts? Is there no honor among double erossers? Verily, my estimation of thieves has gone up a notch. Leedom'k defection to Lavery's cause, two years ago, was solely due to the fact that Dr. Lavery "knifed" me in ltH)8, a fact Leedom was not aware of until I told him on the FRIDAY BE FORE the last June primary. Why should the Fairplay and Lavery oppose Leedom so bitter ly, when less than two weeks ago Dr. Lavery assured me in his own office in Ft. Pierre that he "was for Leedom?" Why not discuss the compet ency aud ability of the various candidates? is it not a fact that you are supporting Morrison, "of the North Country," Bielski "of the Middle West," Trumbo "of the Southwest" and Stuart of Ka doka, simply because of their geographical locations, and the desire to trade for support for Dr. Lavery in their localities? I know Mr. Morrison and Mr. Bielski and you could well af ford to support them on their in tegrity alone. Oscar Stuart is thf man for whom the letters "O. K.' were coined. 1 never met Mr. Trumbo, but "what's the matter with Grang er?" Those who know him will answer. In closing, I again express my reluctance in having to address this to you, but it w entirely for eign to my nature to stand idly by and see men traduced who stood shoulder to shoulder with me in earnest efforts to place Stanley county in the forefront. In re viewing my long connection with Stanley county, a connection which will never be entirely sever ed, I feel proud of my friends ant proud also of my enemies. Very respectfully, SCOTTY BROWN. •Mi*. Brown shoyJUl have said $8,000.—Editor. Cast your vote for Chester N. Leedom for RepreeeaUUv* Whole H*. 162. LAVERY AND PETTIOREW I)r. 1 jhvery is proud of the fact that Hon. R. F. Pettigrew and his entire family have been warm friends for nearly twenty-five years, and that nothing has hap pened on either side to mar that friendship. He says further that there is not room in Rainey s fi nal proof sheet and Millett's lo cal newspaper combined to print all the letters which have passed between Mr. Pettigrew and him self, and that he expects to continue his correspondence with the ex-Senator as long as they both live. What next?—Fairplay. The above is the answer Tallow belly gives us to our interrogatior of two weeks ago, "While you are at it, Doc, why not stick in a copy of the letter you wrote to Ex-Senator Pettigrew, wherein you expressed yourself aa mightily pleased to see him a candidate for the United States senate?" Dear reader, the issues of the campaign are "getting down to bedrock" mighty fast. The Review has for several weeks past been telling the public why it opposes the nomination of Dr Lavery. We have not said a thing that we would retract, for we know him to be a politician of the rankest type, and one in «vhom his best friends cannot place confidence. We know that he would if sent to the legislature from this district, betray the re publican party, and ignore the choice of the party as cxprestod for United States senator. Dr. Lavery in 1896 was bitten by the free silver bug and fol lowed It. F. Pettigrew out of the republican party, lie has, as adr mitted by the Fairplay been in close touch with the ex-senator at all times. In 1904 Doc "saw a light and drifted back into the republican ranks, but has, even to this writer, expressed the hope that some day Pettigrew would again be sent to Washington as senator. In March of this year a meet ing of the democrats of the state was held in Pierre, at which Pet tigrew was urged to become a candidate for the senate. He has done so, and the campaign for his election is already on. The democrats of the state expect that a number of members of the legislature will bolt the party in structions, and vote for Pettigrew Dr. Lavery is one of whom they are sure, since following the Pierre meeting he wrote his Sioux Falls friend, urging him to become a candidate, and pledging his support. We have stated before that Doc is throwing boquets at the Gamble candidacy, he is one of the leading men in the organiza tion which has for its purpose the nomination of R. O. Richards as senator, but down in his heart, concealed from those with whom he wishes to play, he is for Ex Senator Pettigrew, first, last and all the time. If the voters of the county want to send a democrat to the state senate, well and good. But send one who is not afraid to fly his colors, instead of the deceitful double-crossing Doe. Ira Miller and family return ed to their claim north of Avance last week. It will be remember ed that Mr. Miller formerly own ed the livery barn at Brushie, but has been employed on a large ranch in Nebaska for the past year. Their friends are glad to welcome them back again.— Brushie Blade.
