MOST FOR HOME, AND GOOD FOR Al PHILIP, STANLEY COUNTY, S. D. THURSDAY, MAY Milo Maize Alfalfa Ours TRAGEDY IN LYMAN COUNT? Seven People Lose Their Lives Near Lund, Cause Unknown Yet Oaeoma, May 1$.—What may be either a murder or an accident ended the lives of seven people near the town of Lund, in the western part of Lyman county. Chris Peterson and a neighbor named Anderson were in Presho together Monday, parting Mon day evening near the home of Peterson. This was the last seen of Peterson alive. Tuesday evening, Anderson went again to the Peterson place and found the home in ashes with the charred bodies of seven persons in the ruins, supposed to be Peterson, his wife a*£ five children. Coroner 0. E. Murray and State's Attorney CP. C. Weder rath are at present holding an inquest to ascertain the cause of ABLE, EFFICIENT, SUCCESSFUL Lawrence County Member Writes of C. L. Millett's Work in the Last Legislature Omaha, Nebr., May 17, 1912. Editor Philip Weekly Review, Philip, S. D. Dear Sir:— Any one who says that the Honorable Charles L. Millett was not one of the most able, efficient and successful members of the las House of Representatives, is either ignorant of the facts or is deliberately representing some private interest or personal griev ance and not the interests of the people of Stanley county. As a fellow member, it was my pleasure to be seated near him and to work with him on several committees. I know of no mem ber who paid closer attention to duty, was a harder or more ef fective worker or commanded more uniformly the respectful at tention of the House whenever he arose to address it. Never once was there a suggestion of any thing but the purest of motives, never once was there even a hint of selfseeking, and never once was there a hesitancy on the part of the strongest mem bur of the House to recognize in him an adversary worthy of his steel. Few members were as success ful as Mr. Millett in securing the passage of as many or as impor tant bills. Of eleven bills intro duced by him, not counting two introduced by request, six be came laws, and a seventh was re ally passed, through in the strategy of the fight, the com panion Immigration bill intro duced at the same time in the sen ate was the one which was actua lly put through, with the leader ship in the hands of Mr. Millett in the real battle for it, getting it through the House. Among these successful bills was that increas ing the appropriation for the Cottonwood Experiment Station, accomplished against great odds, with a coalition against all such appropriations which it was nece? sarv to break. Without the effec tive work of Mr. Millet that in crease could not have been secur ed. Of the remaining four bills, but one was actually defeated on the floor of the house. Few mem bers, I opine, have as good a per centage of successful bills as that In my judgment, few members of the last legislature will rank with Mr. Millett as an able, broad gauge and successful legislator. He was one of the really sub stantial and reliable thinkers of the session, an honor to the state and a credit to the county he represented. If Stanley county wishes to be effectively heard in the councils of the state it should gladly, yes eagerly, avail itself of the offer of Hon. 0. L. Millett to serve it once more and by honoring him by elevating him to the senate, it ean best honor itself. Respectfully, Anson H. Bigelow. Oast your rote for Chester N. Leedom for Representative. Rev. O. E. Tell has asked us to announce that he will deliver memorial addresses at both ser vices held at the Presbyterian church on Sunday, May 26th, the Sunday before Decoration Day. Dr. D. C. Bond, the well known specialist, of Mitchell, will be at the North-Western hotel, Philip, Thursday, May, 30th. Eyes care fully examined. Glasses made that fit. Special attention paid tc Of 25, 1911. -J Now, just go back say five years ago and try to think who were trying to discourage settle ment in this county one way and another. Can you remember? I can. Was E. A. Morrison help ing the homesteaders and trying to protect them then? No! 1 even know people who had to homestead in his pasture—"his," mind you. It was his and the homesteader was a trespasser. Four years ago we gathered together from all over the coun ty and picked men for office that we thought competent, and our friends. Possibly we were mis taken in some of them, or possi bly some fell into the dear Doc tor's hands before they had been in the county seat long, for we know he is a man that will sure treat you to the best there is go ing as long as he can make the people pay for it. Well, anyway, we elected our ticket and things began to take a different stand by the hard work of our officials and helpers. GOD GIVE US MEN "God give us men." The time demands Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and willing hands Men whom the lust of office does not kill Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy Men who possess opinion and a will Men who have honor men who will not lie Men who can stand before a demagogue And dam his treacherous flatteries without winking Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog In public duty and in private thinking! For while the rabble with their thumb worn creeds, Their large profession and their little deeds Mingle in selfish strife lo! Freedom weeps! Wrong rules the land and waiting justice sleeps! CHANGES IN PAST SIX YEARS Ash Creek Reader Knows Politi cal History of Stanley County and Does Not Mince Words Ash Creek, S. D., May 18, 15)12. Editor Review, Philip, S. D.:— Kindly allow me a little space in your valuable paper to ex press myself upon and to remind the voters of this great Empire of Stanley, who have proven themselves to be a class of citi zens that are awake to the issues of the day, and who I am confi dent will again on June 4th show who the real, true friends of we who were homestaders four years ago are In the first place, the Philip News says that the comity offi cers have all been crooks (or words to that effect) for the last six years. Well, now, let us go back and see. Do many of you know who were the county offi cers of six years ago? I do. Some of them were fine officials, llut still those were the days of "free range" not only all over western South Dakota but Fort Pierre in particular. The days that Dr. C. J. Lavery as politi cal leader and boss could do just as he pleased with a majority of the officials of the county. And, mind you, all the improvements made in the way of bridges, roads and in fact everything else was in the east end of the county and up until four years ago we got nothing except the dirty end of the deal. Now, we do not wish to take up all this issue of the newspap er but we do wish to call your at tention to a few things that are trying to be worked. Tne same leader of six years ago is trying to become Czar again, and if you want thing* to go back to where they first were, find a copy of the Fort Pierre Fairplay, Wfcete V*. 168. spelled on the paper, but it stands for everything else but that. Find a copy of that paper and see who it is supporting and then vote for every candidate whose name does not appear in its ticket. Except you will notice that it does not name a full ticket. Why? Because those whos names appear in its ticket are men already receiving their advice from the Czar of Fort Pierre, and for the offices not mentioned it wants to do a little more trading before their names goes on the list and because two out of three are their personal friends, and they have a two to one go of it anyway. R. M. Durkee's name does not appear in their ticket, because Durkee is only in the race to take votes from James A. Quigg of Philip. Durkee said, ,#He wasn't in it for his health." No, we certainly know that he is it for money and for Langley. No better friend of the people can be found in Stanley county than is James A. Quigg. A vote for Durkee is a vote for Langley Vote for Quigg whatever you do, and we will have a friend as well as a competent official. Practically every man the Fairplay is supporting was induc ed to run by Dr. Lavery or by his influence. I am with you for a square deal. Vote against the "Foulplay" bunch. A Friend of the Homesteader and Farmer. FIRE AT DOES DAMAGE WET* Wednesdaay morning our tomi was start led by the news that the hotel at Weta had burned and that Miss Soules, a teacher in the schools there had been severely hurried. Dr. Hennings made ,the ttrip there on the railroad speed er and found that Miss Soules had been burned so badly that it will only be by the best of care that her life will be saved. At an early hour the landlord of the hotel got up and started the fir* and went out to get some wood, returning he found the interior of the building in flames. The alarm was sounded at once and those sleeping upstairs awaken ed and warned of their danger and all made their escape safely, but Miss Soules returned to her room up stairs to get some things and had just stepped on the stairs to make her escape when the stairs fell, a mass of flames. Those around hurried to get her out of the flames and finally suc eeeded in dragging her out, but she had received burns that even though her life is saved she will have a hard fight to recover. Miss Soules was taken to the Sanitarium at Chamberlain after the burns had been dressed by Dr. Hennings. The building and contents are a total loss as noth ing was saved.—Kadoka Press,'* The Review $1.00,a year. ,. Vote for A~*Trnr IT far— tif
