The Great Empire of Stanley Ovt. one hundred cars of emi grant movables went west from this city for last week, half that number coming in on Friday. It is reported that over three hun rod cars are on their way from Iowa and Minnesota points, and will arrive within the next week. Practically all of these are bound for the country west of the river, with an occasional car being un loaded on this side by a purchaser of land, who preferred to secure title at once rather than to go into a new country. Besides the cars coming here a number are dropped off at Blunt and Harrold for land buyers who purchased lands in the eastern part of this county and Sully county last fall and are now getting out to their new posses sions. This year is going to in crease the population of the Mis souri valley east of the stream, as well as west, and population figures will have to be revised after the next census is taken for the state. —Capital-Journal. The Fort Pierre Brick Company are working a force of twenty men, their pay-roll amounting to about $50 per day, and their new press is turning out pressed gumbo I trick at the rate of 25,000 per day of ten hours. The Hrst kiln is now ready for burning and the Hi es will be lighted today. An other kiln is being stacked up, and the third will soon follow. We may say that the enterprise which means so much to the business and industrial future of the city of Fort Pierre is now well launched.

Come in, bring your neighbors, and .join with us. If you have a candidate in your sec tion of the county let the meeting hear of his qualifications. J. C. Russell, Chairman Alvin Waggoner, Secretary Wag Raps Freight Rates The editor of the News appear ed before the state board of rail road commissioners last week, and protested against the freight rates being collected west of the river. The Capital-Journal of Pierre has the following to say in regard to the kick registered by our scribe. "Alvin Waggoner appearing for the business men of Philip took up the question of emigrant rates, and stated a number of cases in which shippers of emigrant goods had paid freight from the point of shipment to Philip, taking a .receipt therefor, and were then called upon to pay additional charges before they were taken west from the river, and again be fore they were allowed to unload. He cited the case of one man who paid the freight on a car from Des Moines to Philip, taking receipt for the same. On arrival at Pierre he was required to pay an additional $40 before being sent west, and at Philip, called upon for $25 more before he would be allowed to unload his car. He complained of the classitication, in which he alleged that goods which should be shipped as fourth class were put in the third class rate and the freight charge increased by the change. He next cited the different rates east and west of the river, alleging that the rate on wire was 50 cents per hundred from Joliet, III., to Pierre, about 800 miles, 34 cents per hundred from Pierre to Philip, a distance of 80 miles. The rate on meats from Sioux City to Pierre 30 cents per hundred, and from Pierre to Philip 24 cents per hundred.-' A New Contracting i rni "The Big Four" Of which E. L. Keith is the ad vance guard is all here and will soon be in shape to estimate and carry out anything in the build ing line contemplated or needed in Philip for the coming season. Mr. E. Ned row has been a lead er in general contract work for several years in eastern Iowa, and has always had the reputation of being the best in the locality. Mr. J. E. Colton, whom some of you already know, has had a wide ex perience in all classes of buildings, including concrete construction, stone, brick and structural iron. And Mr. R. T. Walters has spent his entire life so far as Knight of the Trowel, and, as a mason con tractor, has had charge of some of the best buildings in Iowa also Denver and Colorado Springs and many of the larger cities of the United States. He has made a special study of cement work including concrete foundations, walks, concrete blocks, etc. These three gentlemen are here to stay. Mr. Nedrow's car of household goods and effects will follow as soon as he can erect a temporary residence in Philip. The families of Mr. Walter and Mr. Colton will arrive in a month or so, and whether or not they succeed in locating on claims, all will be residents of Philip. The firm name will be Nedrow-Colton & Walters. Keith is pretty busy-over at the Robinson Bros, lumber yard and will not attempt to do much con tracting, but will always be ready to do your estimating and will al ways have men to do the work but will practically turn the con struction work over to the above named firm. If you contemplate building anything see them before contract ing or see Keith who will help you in any way possible in mak ing plans, estimates, etc., free of charge, at any time.

Seriously, the milch cow will do more for Stanley county than al the politttUMtfi in the state. Democratic Meeting Here As mentioned last week the democratic rally here was not ful ly under way when we went to press anil so we were unable to give all the details of the affair. Hon. Granville Jones of Rapid City wiis present and delivered a stirring address. Mr. Jones was l)orn in Arkansas and has spent most of his life in Texas, so it is unnecessary to say that his democ racy is of the type that is usually termed "bred in the bone."1 He is a gifted speaker, and something of a wit besides. Other speeches were made by various members of the party. In fact the meeting was a free pitch in for all. Likewise a number of candidates were suggested for the various places on the ticket. It looks as if Philip were going to havo a candidate for the office of county treasurer. Perhaps there are other aspirants for fame and county office in our midst. Among the representative demo crats here may be mentioned Hon. Warren Young, Hon. Dug Carlin, William Frost, City Auditor Mc Millan of Fort Pierre, Hugh Jef fries of the Stock Growers News, George Philip of Fort Pierre, and others whose names would con siderably extend this list. Watch Us Grow The Stock Growers News of Fort Pierre contains in its last issue the following clipping from our pages and comment of its own. Brother Jeffries can set the pace now, but one of these days we expect to have him going some, if he keeps in the lead. '"One hundred thirty-two new subscribers have been added to the subscription list of the News since January 1.

The Stock Growers News can make the statement of having the largest circulation of any paper in Stanley county, making no ex ceptions, and while the field is an open one, we intend to set a fast pace." Drowned in the Missouri Frank Moore, a young man of Fort Pierre, was drowned in at tempting to cross the Missouri river last Saturday night. A party has been searching for the body most of the week but so far it has not l»een recovered. It is believed that the breaking up of the ice may carry the unfortunate man's remains far down the river. Moore started across the river to Pierre late in the afternoon. The ice had lately been thawing and was considered unsafe. He managed, however, to get within a few yards of the Pierre side, before the ice gave way. Friends watching his progress, saw him throw up his hands and disappear from sight. The current carried the body swiftly away and he was not seen again. The dead man leaves relatives and many friends in Fort Pierre. 4- Good Qualifications Mrs. O. M. Culp. principal of the Philip school, has announced herself as a candidate for ^county superintendent of schools, ^subject to the democratic primaries.
