(From the Fairplay)
Frank H. Kinney stopped off for
a short visit with his many Fort
Pierre friends Saturday while re
turning from a trip to Aberdeen.
Glenn W. Martens was over
from Pierre Wednesday in the in
terest of James E. Griffen, whose
hearing was on for illegal voting.
Marty seems to be the only 'kwet"
attorney left on either side of the
river, and he has consequently fal
len heir to Buck Thayer's clientele.
Jim Griffen was arrested Tues
day for illegal voting at the city
election. His hearing was held
before Judge Dinsmore at the
court house and took nearly all
day Wednesday, a number of wit
nesses being examined for the state,
but the defense introducing no tes
timony. He voted in Tammany
and Judge Dinsmore, who sat as a
committing magistrate, was con
vinced that there was enough evi
dence to show that a crime had
been committed, therefore bound
the defendent over to the next
term of court. Claude Baker was
arrested on a similar charge, but
his hearing was continued until
Friday April, 29, at 9 o'clock.
County politics have been ob
scured in the numerous towns of the
coun-ty for the past couple of weeks
on account of local issues in the mu
nicipal elections. Candidates on
the various tickets have not been
making much stir but we may
look for something doing from this
on. The republican candidates
for the various offices so far as we
have learned are as follows:
Circuit Judge,
JohnF. Hughes, Fort Pierre
Lyman T. Boucher, Pierre.
State Senator,
John G. Bartinc, Oacoma.
Dr. C. J. Lavery, Fort Pierre.
County Auditor,
Charles M. Price, Cedar Fork.
County Treasurer,
Byron L. Clow, Philip.
Register of Deeds,
John McKiilip, Manilla.
Geo. T. Porch, Kadoka.
C. E. Coyne, Hayes.
Geo Bel ford, Interior.
Lester Marrin^gton, West
Clerk of Courts,
Andy Rickets, Fort Pierre.
County Judge,
H. M. Dinsmore, Teton.
States Attorney,
Alvin Waggoner, Philip.
Superintendent of Schools,
Grace A. Reed, Meers.
County Assessor,
Frank L. Norman, Qriq^sfrope.
Guy L. Hart, Rousseqttu
County Surveyor,
Roy H. Townsend, Ft. Pierre.
County Coroner,
Dr. C. C. Winter, Kadoka.
On the democratic side the only
candidate mentioned, and that on
the quiet, is M. P. Kennedy for
sheriff. Of the present county
officials the only one where any
opposition has appeared, is in the
case of County Assessor when Guy
L. Hart came out in opposition to
Frank L. Norman Of the present
county officials who are candidates
for a renomination they have all
without exception proved them
selves competent officials, and
worthy the support of our citizens.
While possibly some have made
mistakes they have ever had the
interests of the county and the
duties of their respective offices at
heart. A tried official is one who
can best serve his constituents and
for that rsasoD the present officers
are entitled to a nwniinafcton

An Open Letter
Pierre, S. D. April 28,1910.
To the people of Stanley county:
My petition has been filed for
renomination as your Circuit Judge.
I have always believed that judicial
elections should be separated from
state and county politics, in order
that the fitness of the men for such
positions might be the only con
sideration and absolute confidence
in the courts be thus maintained.
But this has not yet been done in
our state, and as 1 have been a
member of the republican party
all my life, I feel bound to submit
my nomination to the voters of
that party at the June primary.
I have not the time, nor do I feel
that it would be proper for a can
didate for renomination to this
position to make a personal appeal
to voters. I have been your judge
for four years and now you must
be mine. If in judging me you
make mistakes, it will be no more
than I have often done.
The lots in all of the three towns
named will be put on the market

profitable investments and be par

new towns--Eakin, Onida and
Agar, in Sully County, S. l., will
be made as follows:
At Eakin, Wednesday, Ma.tf 4th.
At Onida, Thursday, May 5th.
At Agar, Friday, May 6th.
These new towns promise to be

offering great opportunities for
new business openings.
Mr. J. C. Burchard,Gen'l Land

sites on the dates mentioned, and
will conduct the sales and meet all
interested in these new town site

any information that may be de

meantime full information can be

How many years since these
lines have flashed across your
memory Or have they always been
a part of it, like your first piece at
school. Where are they found?
Why, they are the foreword of
"St. Elmo," that most famous of
novels of a few generations ago,
which today, holds its own with the
lovers of fiction better tnan any of
its contemporaries and as well as
many of the present-day novels.

never appeared on the stage. As a
matter of fact, it did have a brief
life before the footlights. It was in
the lifetime of the author, Augus
ta-Evans Wilson, who is said to
have found no satisfaction in an
alleged indifferent handling of her
beloved story and to have cashier
ed the stage version with great
firmness. A competent dramatiza
tion has appeared at last, according
to the testimony of hundreds of
people of several middle western
cities who have been privileged to
hear the play formed from "St
Elmo," by Miss Grace Hay ward
herself a player of many notable
parts and whose version of "Graus

critics. At the Grand opera house

Handed A Census
The taking of the present, census
promises to he a farce of more than
ordinary hilarity in this county.
If the thing were not so painful
it would be positively funny, and
when the writer considers the mat
ter he is sometime undecided
whether to swear or laugh.
We were talking with one of
the enumerators at Cottonwood,
Mr. C. N. Boyd. He tells us that
he has a small matter of ten town
ships to cover, and the officials in
charge have alloted to him just
thirty days, or three days per
township, in which to complete
the work. Henry Picker, an en
umerator in the territory north of
here, has twenty townships to
complete in the same time It

Of course the enumerators can
not get all the population in the
territory they have received in
the prescribed time and it could
not be expected of them. There
are something less than a thousand
questions to be asked and answered
at each domicile and it takes some
time to get from one house to an
other. The territory is usually
large enough to take thirty days
of the enumerator's time to visit
each house and learn whether the
occupants are at home, much less
to ask the questions and record
the answers.

with our population and progress.

Ever see a little wisp of a girl,
all purity, innocence, beauty,
madly in love with a man twice
forming an almost brutal contrast
to her dainty self and wonder how
it happened? Ever puzzle about
the temptations that beset such a
girl or try to guess what made the
man as he is and attempt to pre
dict their future? These are some
of the thoughts that must come to
every person in the audience at a
performance of "St. Elmo." It's
a play that sets one thirking and
delights with its portrayal of the
girl's compJete triumph. St. Elmo
