PURREE, MANAGER MARCH 2nd, 1911 Reciprocity Tn discussing this popular ques tion, I will admit there are two sides to it, and the side that wins must give facts and figures to sub stantiate their views. In a na tional question they must try and tind out the will of the people at large and then support the side that will do the most good to the most people. It is also well to take into consideration the views of the president and Secretary Wilson, also the views of success ful business men and farmers, (the views of trust magnates not requir ed.) If those few suggestions are adhered to, the writers and read ers on this question of reciprocity will be enabled to solve the prob lem. Will it be beneficial or otherwise to the people of this country? The Sioux City Journal of the 11th, has an article on re ciprocity by Dale Hunter of West tield. la. Mr. Hunter's article is like the handle of a jug, it is all one sided: he doesn't seem to know why President Taft appointed a commission to make this treaty. He must have been having a Hip Van Winkle nap when the election returns came in last November when the people said by their votes, "we are tired of thePayne-Aldrich protection, we want the necessaries of life "free", take a back seat you Stand Pat Republicans, the democrats and progressive repub- licans are now at give us a "square deal". Mr. Taft heard this cry, he appoint ed a commission to confer with Canada in hopes of taking the duty off the necessaries of life and stop this cry of the masses for cheaper living. (This may be good politics for him in 1912.) This commis sion was instructed to reduce the duty or put on the free list any thing and everything that would have a tendency to reduce the cost of living to the people of the United States. Congress passed the reciprocity bill on the 14th by a vote of 221 to 92. Mr. Hunter trys to make a point by saying, "It is hard for the writer to under stand why any person living in Iowa, South Dakota or Nebraska should favor the importation duty free of the farm products of Can ada to the markets of the United States." If our Iowa friend would discard his hide-bound stand pat toggery, it would not be so hard for him to undestand why the poor people of Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska favor reciprocity. They are benevolent big hearted people anddispise "the dog in the manger" tactics, they believein theoldadage, "live and let liye", they know the poor have suffered from high cost of living and are willing to con tribute towards their relief, they are not the tools of monopoly. I don't know what Mr. Hunter's oc cupation is, he may be a farmer by proxey, a business man, a glue and soap manufacturer, or a saloon keeper, but the stand he taken against reducing the cost of living for the poor would indicate he is an undertaker and replenishes his exchequer by the death of his fel low man by "starvation" or other wise. This farming loving hyp rocrit is working faithfuly in the interest of his bosses, the trust and protectionists when he says, "The western farmer will be ruined if this bill becomes a law, let us let well enough done, we are all pros perous now." He fails to state the benefits to be derived by the western farmer oo free lumber, free coal, free fish and free shoes and all wool clothing and numer ous other things which there is a duty on. In his otaring remarks ¥r. Hunter makes himself elegibie tatty's Ananis Ciub when tie ^loootoludetfaatnosectkio American farmer never asked for such an agreement and doesn't want anything of the kind. There should be no desire upon the part of anyone to strike down the pros perity of the farmer. He feeds the world, and when he is pros perous all are prosperous.'* The western farmers have been crying for cheap coal and lumber for twenty years, but the coal barons and lumber kings have controlled our congress until now, when 154 men controlled half the supply of the United States. Mr. Hunter in winding up seems to be the guard ing angel of us old farmers. The trusts are the only ones that are striking at the prosperity of the farmers. Choke them off M,r. of our country would be ultimate-1 istrv can make the people believe ly uotn3tiled L»y ttie ratification of' that Lontuer wa? igtiorar oftht* thi-i Agreement by congress The bribery and lavish display of inon Hunter, as I suppose you are a young man and was doing the milking stunt 45 years ago while I was fighting Indians. W. W. Politics Make Queer Bedfellows The sharp lines that were drawn between the progressives and the stand patters during the debate recently, on the revision of the tariff, have been all obliterated by the Canadian reciprocity treaty. Here is Senator Aldrich the father and sponsor of the late tariff law, so obnoxious to the progressives, hob nobing with the most rank in surgent, and Crawford and Gam ble over among tne stand patters and La Follette too, the most rad ical and uncompromising exponent of insurgency, doing their level best to beat their farmer friends. This new alignment can be ac counted for only on the ground that senators are not voicing their own convictions of right and wrong but are catering to the popular will, which is yet an unknown again quanity. They may flop the bat and will when they hear from home, It looks like the Sulloway pen sion bill is going to die a borning. Only a two days session is left, and the senate all at logerheads over reciprocity and the tariff commis sion. The legislature appropriated $75,000 for maintainance of sol diers' homes and killed the bill de signed to change the management. The old vets are quite a factor in politics even if they are getting old. Reports received from Professor F. L. Davis, of Cornell, are to the effect that the cow, Daisy Cornu copia Pauline, has established a new worlds record by producing 34! pounds of butter in seven days. The new record holder is four years old. The Rapid City Daily Journal which comes to our sanctum, is one of the uptodate enterprising newspapers of the west. It's splendid editorials are short, sharp and forceful, indicating that a broad minded man is at the helm. W e recommend it to our readers who want the news right off the hot griddle. Rapid City Journal: The re cent decision of the interstate com merce commission prohibiting the railroads from putting into effect the proposed higher freight tariffs has aroused very general interest. The roads have the right of appeal to the recently created commerce court, but it is not yet decided if they will exercise this right. Un less there is a strong probability of showing that the action of the commission is "confiscatory" in character they could scarce expect to accomplish much by an appeal from the decision. That a refusal of the right to raise existing ratee, under which the railroads apparent ly are prosperous would constitute confiscation in any degree could not successfully be contended. Viewed from any point it does not seem probable an appeal will be taken. Senator Gambles defense of Lorimer has certainly quested him with the people bf Sooth Dakota. No amount of fegal soph* ey in his belialf. He was the .an tral figure around which swirled the political vortex that finally landed him in the senate. Is it possible that a man of Lorimers sagacity and alertness could have been a passive figure in the midst of such turbulant. scenes( If so he must have be*»n hynotized and all unconscious of wrong doing. This must be the view that Bailey takes of the matter and the rest of the defenders. As we go to press this the sec ond day of March, the skies are still clear and the air fresh and balmy like a summer breeze. The Black Hills people tell of robins singing their quaint old song of kill em, and cure em, and give em physic", and then he wiggles his tail and says "pip pip, back to the evergreen hills I left but a few short weeks ago. How lovely to fly away to the sweet summer day, the land where flowers are per petually in bloom and come back again at my own sweet will". The ever restless robin, the harbinger of spring, is not troubled with railroad fare or upper berths. He comes and he goes with the whole world his paradise. Boys with the gun spare the robin. A Fire on the Prairie One day late in October, herds still roamed o'er western plains. And birds sought their rendezvous aa they aan* their glad refrains. Parched were the native grasses on hills and cactus beds. And from yonder buttes hard by, way rooks wared their somber heads. No autumn leaves were rustling and notasseled corn fields waved. A wide expense of prairie met the eye*of those who gazed. With naught to deck the landscape or obscure the drover's track Save hare and there a haystack or perchance a clalmer's shack. Reside a "buffalo wallow" a lone rider drew his rein, He and his thirsty steed had aped for Miles across the plain. A hart- appeared above them, dark was the alley below. There was fire on the prairie and the fumes surged to and fro. While smoke curled o'er the prairie and the west wind fiercely blew, A settler from a distance to his lonely 0»bin drew. His countenance was clouded as he scanned that dark profile, For, though a homely dwelling, 'twas his only domicile. The dark smoko rose above him and the wind more fiercely blew. No aid was yet apparent, for the settlers theie were few. Flocksguickiy sought a refuge as darker the sky became, And cattle in their frenzy tied before the raging flame. Men hurried to the rescue, impetuous then, to i-ender aid. From highway, field and hamlet came a willing calvacade. But the fury of the elements was beyond man's power to stay. And the hungry flames consumed all things stationed in their way. The sun soon sank obscurely fa the distant western sk.v, And naught I n it bare n prairie gravely greets the weary eye. Soon anxious watchers scatter while dense smoke the hills enthrall. And o'er gloom and desolution darkness spreads a silent pall. From Stock Growers News Tuesday morning about ten o'clock found each county com missioner in his respective seat at the old stand transacting busi ness for the county.
