We The Bad River News o u n y O i i a a e PHILIP, STANLEY COUNTY, S. D., THURSDAY, MARCH 26, 1908. The Great Empire of Stanley Every day several cars of immi grants go west to their new homes in this county. The rush this spring is greater than it has ever been before. The settlers that are coming in this year are coming to stay as is evidenced by the ear loads of household goods and farm ing implements thnt they are bring ing with them. They are coming from all over tht country from 111 inois, Indiana, Michigan, Ne braska, Minnesota and a great -many other states to this great new country to build up homes of their own. Tyey are the people who, some day will be substantial prosperous citizens of this country. They will each be own ers of a quarter section of as good and as producing land as lays out of doors. Fair play. Our advice to those who farm in tliis gumbo soil is to plow deep plant early corn plant macaroni wheat plant flax plant oats plant potatoes and other garden truck, but don't depend entirely upon your crops for a living. If you are going to make your perma nent home here get cows, hogs and chickens. It wont take very many to assure you a living, and if you raise a good crop they will add to your income in a handsome manner.—Stock Growers News. At a meeting of the Kadoka Kommercial Klub held Wednesday evening, March 11, an invitation was extended to the voters and citizens of the southern part of the county asking that delegates be sent to a county division meeting to be held in Kadoka March 25. The people over in that section A the county propose to inaugurate a movement that will resurrect Jackson county to a new civil and politicial life. Catholic services were held in the new Catholic church here for the first time on St. Patrick's day by Father O'Hara. Our Catholic brethren are very proud of their new place of worship, and right they have to be as it represents earnest efforts and hard labor on their part. The Catholics in this community are "boosters. Cot tonwood Register. F. S. Rowe & Co. of Fort Pierre received a carload of J. I. Case threshing machines last week, con sisting of three machines. These arc the iirst machines to be placed in stock by a dealer in Stanley county. One of these machines has already been sold to parties residing northwest of Hayes. Mr. Voglcr, who lived near Gray's road ranch, was accidentally shot and killed Tuesday. He and his wife and a friend were riding in a bob sled, when he holding a loaded gun, fell backwards out of the sled and the gun was discharg ed. The injured man was taken to Hayes where he died.—Ottumwa The Cottonwood postoffice has been made a money order office. A petition is being circulated ask ing the postoffice department to make a money order office of the Stamford office. The Rush Continues Thi rush of homesteaders and new settlers into the territory west of the Missouri river still continues. They are coming in even larger numbers than they did last year. On March 20 according to the books of the agent at Pierre live hundred cars of immigrant goods had crossed the bridge at that place since the first of the year. The number crossed at Chamber lain has been almost as large. This takes account of but two lines entering the new land of promise. The number of those who have come into the country by other routes can only be estimated. Besides this it must be remem bered that the entire state is re ceiving a large number of new settlers. The authorities at Pierre think the immigration is heaviest this spring than it has been in the history of the state. Agents at Sioux Falls and at Iowa and other stations outside tli® state, report that they have never before loaded so many cars faff people seeking new homes in the Dakotas. It is likely that the rush will continue during 9$ the summer. Homestead Lefhtortfou A large number have of bills, been either directly or indirectly affecting the public lam) system of the nation, introduced by various members of the House and the Senate *ince Congress convened last December. Among them all, the act providing for second home stead entries alone has become a a law. The president in his annual mes sage to congress recommended a law providing for a larger home stead than that now allowed under the law covering most of the public domain. Representee Mondell of Wyoming introduced a bill in the lower house providing for a 820 acre homestead in South Dakota and other western states. Several other bills of like nature, some of them including and others exclud ing South Dakota from the scope of their provisions, have been in troduced. Last week a bill pro viding for a larger homestead was passed by the Senate, but at pres ent it is hung up in the House Committee on Public Lands, sad dled with several amendments. The outlook is not particularly bright at present for legislation along this line. Senator Gamble is the author of a bill providing for the opening of the western part of the Cheyenne reservation. This bill receives the sanction of the Milwaukee railroad because the passage of the act would give that road a monopoly of the immigrant business in the new country. Other roads have come to the rescue, and as a re suit an act was introduced a few days ago which provides for the opening of the entire Cheyenne reservation. This bill would divide the business among the roads that reach the Missouri, but do not enter the western part of the res ervation. Another bill that has been hang ing fire for sometime is that which provided for a new land office at Lemmon. It is not likely that it will become a law. Additional Train Service The report has come from high places that the train service of the Northwestern railway between Pierre and the Black Hills is to be increased by adding two more trains. The schedule has not been yst announced, but it is known that both of the new trains will reach here about mid-day. The passenger traffic on the new line has been heavy from the start, and is now increasing by leaps and bounds. Many immigrants are coming into the country, and the traffic is increasing on that ac count. But the fact that the Northwestern built one of the best lines in the state between the river and the Black Hills is be ginning to tell. A person who has occasion to travel over the new line onee, becomes a patron of the road. Travelers in the Hills, desir ing to reach Chicago or other eastern points, are willing to un dergo some inconvenience in mak ing connections, in order to avail themselves of the comforts of the Northwestern service.

All old memliers in good standing are invited to be present. More Newspapers Several new newspapers have been launched in Stanley county within the past week. Cottonwood, Topbar and Midland are among the places that have lately wel comed new publishing enterprises. Moreover, the report is current that there are more to come. Stanley county now has thirty one newspapers, all alive and kick ing vigorously on the last publica tion day. The number is large enough to make this the banner newspaper county of the state ONE DOLLAR A YEAR. Others may boaat of their "hund red richest square miles," their breweries and their brick yards, but when it comes to newspapers we've got 'em grabbed, worlds without end, and thea some. Evidently Stasley county leoks good to the newspaper fraternity. And it i* good! A man who will give his days and nights to ths heavy tasks connected with mould ing public opinion and his spars time to cultivating an alfalfa patch and milking a few cows, may reasonably hope to become rich in a few years. He must rise early in the morning and go forth to gather in the succulent proof notice lie must mould public opinion gently ami iersuasively, though it is proper and right for him to go after a brother editor with a. club and a bill collector with a six shooter. Let him adopt as his motto: He who by the pen would thrive must get proof notices. Then when the getting of proof notices has become the all absorbing pas sion of his soul, and the fact that "John Doe has tiled notice of his intention to make linal commuta tion proof in support of his claim" is of more interest to him than the election of a president or the dynamiting of a king, success will turn aside from the beaten paths of men and travel barefoot over the prairies to And hik shack.
