I hereby announce myself a candidate for nomination as sheriff of Stanley county subject to the will of the republican voters at the June primaries. Any favors shown me will be appreciated. C. E. Coyne, Hayes. 8. D. STATE SENATOR 1 am a candidate for nomination on the republican ticket for state senator, for Lhst. No. 25, com prising Lyman and Stanly counties. This district is especially inter ested in the matter of redisricting and apportionment of representa tives and senators, which comes before the next legislature, having now very inadequate representa tion in view of its great increase in population. If sent to represent the district I will endeavor to secure for both counties the representation to which they are entitled. Our section of the state is being injured because of excessive freight and express rates. It would be my aim to ob tain just and equitable rates with out discrimination anywhere with in the state. JohnG. Bartine. Life is just one damned thing after another.—J. F. Turner. It begins to look as if the writer's entire family would be i*$ politics this year. Mr. Burke is in Washington looking after the affairs of his constituent while three or four of his opponents are going up and down the state looking for a con venient place to take his scalp. Just a word of advice to our gardeners and farmers: Don't send away to the ends of the earth for your se^ds. You should either buy seeds that have been grown in this or neighboring states, or at least in states of the same latitude and general climatic conditions. There is so much bad in the best of us that it little behooves the most of us to talk very much about the rest of us. -J F. Turner. Every corn grower in Stanley county should send to the State Agricultural Experiment Station at Brookings, South Dakota, for the Corn Bulletin just issued. Of course, it has a number, but just drop the station a card asking for the corn bulletin and you v,ill get what you want. It contains a lot of very useful information about one of the great agricultural crops of the state. The portions of the bulletin devoted to seed selection are especially pertinent at this season of the year. No one has yet said that Charlie Burke has not accomplished a lot of work for the people of his state during the past year in congress. He is a worker, and we believe the people of the state have found it out. Whoever else they may elect to any other offices, we can not lw lieve the people of this state will change their representatives in congress. Burke and Martin have served the people well and deserve an exhibition of continued confi dence. These tine days there are many sidewalk superintendents of the construction work on the new Bank of Philip building. They are self appointed and is usual in such cases are not to be recom mended for their knowledge of the matter they are engaged upon. Men who could not tell the differ ence between a brick and a belogna spend hours in watching most carefully every movement of the masons. They may not have spent five hours at serious work in as many years but they are busy superintending just the same. The Northwestern railroad in this state has never been so con gested with business in its history. It simply has not half the equip ment needed in handling its busi ness at the present time. Nearly all west bound passenger trains are late. One Wednesday morning forty two passengers got off at Philip, practically all strangers. Freight trains do not expect to keep their schedules these days. Four brakeman have been sent out of Huron with ever freight train lately, yet in most cases the train has only covered a part of its trip before it had to be stopped under the requirements of the eighteen hour law. Anyone who thinks that the "wet" and "dry" campaign is not warm in Fort Pierre has another shot at the mental cane-rack. We heard no other political talk during the four days we were in the county seat last week. County politics, The Stylish Dresser It not •tidM unleM his wardrobe embraces a nice tMoft «f fcoqr reeta.

When you see two citizens of the county seat town fanning the air these days, its a temperance argument as sure a^ you live. Judge David M. Moore is the candidate of the "wets" for mayor, and M. L. Parcells is the standard bearer of the "drys." As far as anyone can tell it's about a toss up between the warring fac tions. The temperance people maintain that Fort Pierre has never been more prosperous than during the past year of local pro hibition, and the "wets'* are equally certain that the town has had more drinking and drunkeness without saloons than it ever hail with them. So there you are. It's an even bet on either side of the proposi tion so far. All the banks of the county Im port increasing deposits this spring. The reports to the bank examiner show that there is a quarter of a million dollors more money in de posit in the banks of the countv than ever before in our historv That doesnt look much 1§ If tto country was going baclfe There seems to be a disposition to hold meeting these days to con sider county division. This seems to be a second phase of the con troversy. At the start it was all newspaper discussions, but the brethren of the press seem to be cooling down in a measure. Now meetings are being held everywhere by everyone. We know of a doz en in various parts of the county within the past ten days. Just what is being accomplished, depo nent knoweth not. Mr. J. F. Hughes of Fort Flew©, candidate for circuit judge, has re cently returned from the counties in the eastern part of the district and reports things very favorable to his candidacy. Mr. Hughes is the oldest and best lawyer in thig county, and as Stanley county casts a majority of the votes of Ue district, his chances for the nom ination are exceedingly good. There are indications that the democratic party of Stanley county has an eye glued on something. A meeting of the faithful has been called for Midland in the near future for the purpose of devising ways and means of bringing about the defeat certain republican aspir ants for office. Likely there will be a full democratic ticket in the field, but so far we have heard of only a few rumors as to the most of the places on the ticket. Two petitions, however, have showed up in Philip, that of Judge David M. Moore, who is a candidate for the office of county judge, and that of Berg Brown, who is a candidate for tbe office of states attorney. Fort Pierre News Mrs. Gus Hargesheimer enter tained a number of lady friends at her home last Friday afternoon in honor of Mrs. L. Hargesheimer of PhiliD who spent a week here vis iting. The afternoon was pleasantly spent in social chat and dainty re freshments were served- A pleas ant time is reported. Mr and Mrs Hahn moved down from Philip last week and are get-, ting settled in the McManus resi dence on Dead wood street. They are the parents of Miss Flora Hahn who is stenographer at then court house for Treasurer Clow^ and we are glad to welcome them to our city. Mrs. Geo. S. Poite left Saturday afternoon for her home at Ash creek after a pleasant stay of a month visiting with her many Fort Pierre friends. Mr. Ppste met her at Philip, their nearest railroad point. Mrs. Poste and daughter,' Thressa are contemplating a visit to California within the nea£ future. Frank L.

Kumm lary in the third degree and was sentenced to two years in the stone house at Sioux Falls. Bill was up on a charge of larceny just a year ago, managed to get the crime re duced to petit larceny, and drew about three months in jail. He is only a boy in years and it is quite possible that two years in the penitentiary will take some of the foxyness out of him. The now notorious dollar case was up for final argument and trial. It consumed most of the day and at the conclusion of the testimony on both sides the court took the case under advisement. He will render a decision soon. The right of the sheriff to collect a dollar on notice and demand of taxes without any levy has been pretty thoroughly threshed out and decided against that officer at least by inference, but the trouble with the situation lies in the fact that the case has turned upon a collateral point which may be decisive of the issue in favor of the sheriff. The decision is await ed with considerable interest by the tax payers of the county- E u a S u a e A s s i a i o o n Organizes Mrs. J. H. Johnson of Fort Pierre was here Tuesday evening and addressed an audience at the opera house upon the various phases of the equal suffrage move ment now occupying the attention of the voters of the state. Mrs. Johnson is president of the state association and is actively at work now organizing local clubs and associations in the towns of the state. The proposed amendment to the constitution will be submitt ed to the voters at the coming november election. If it carries, women will be given equal suff rage rights with men. From now until election time a warm votee for women campaign will be on- At the doee of Mrs. Johneon's remarks a local organisation was 15e 25o 15c 12tc 25o 8c UNwi25c 75c to $1.00 50c 85o to $1,00 85* to $1,00 Standard Tomatoes.. 10o (xopher Brand Peas 15®* for 25c Gopher Brand Cherries 25c Wax Beans (cut) Qq Kraut, Van Camps and Libby's 2 for -.,...25« effected with Mrs. Alvin Wag goner, president Mrs. Frank M.

Market Report Sioux City, la., Apr. 11, Last week's sharp advance in fat and killing cattle brought out a I iberal run for the opening day of the week. This gave buyers aa opportunity to lower prices. The fat cattle trade here ruled anywhere from weak to 10c lower than that of the latter part of the previous week. On this basis the usual light Monday supply changed ownership. Beeves are quotable at *7.00 18.00 according to fin ish. Fat cows and heifers are sel ling at $4.40 $7.00. The latter price was paid for a bunch of well fattened 11241b. heifers.

On this basis there was an active demand. The recent advance places the market back to the high point for the spring. Feeders are selling from $5.25 $6.75. From $4.25 $5.90 is being paid for calves and yearlings, a load of Grade Black Polled steers and heifers selling at the latter price, the top for this weight stock on this market.
