Governor Frank M. Byrne, of Pierre,
aooompanied by State Game Warden
Hedriob and Commissioner of Sobool
Lands Hepp?rle, arrived in Hot Springs
last Thursday evening and Friday
made a trip to the state game preserve
north and east of Caster which com
prises an area of aboat 63,000 aores of
land at the present time nearly nil
fenoed with an eight foot woven wire
fenoe. The remainder of the work
will be completed as soon as possible*
Governor Byrne is a member of the
state game commission and due to the
efforts of the commercial bodies in the
Hills who have been agitating the pnr
ohase of the Sootty Phillips herd of
buffalo, he made this trip here and in
talking with local people Sunday after
hia return from the preserve he ex
pressed himself as being in favor of
purchasing at least fifty head aud per
haps more. Upon bis return to Pierre
where he will meet with other members
of the commission this matter will be
Already quite a large number of elk
are on the preserve and more will be
shipped in later. He reports the bunch
there now in fiae shape.
While in the city the Governor was
shown about by Attorney W. B. Dud
ley, who was a member of the senate
during the time in which the Governor
was also a member of that body.
Fate of the Deadwood Assay Office Still in
The Balance-Senate Stands Pat
Pioneer-Times: The tate of the Dead
wood United States assay offloe is still
undetermined. The conference com
mittee of the house and senate were
unable to agree on the matter of the
appropriation. The house members
acted in accordance with the previous
action of the house in cutting out the
assay offloe appropriations, but the
senate members stood pat and refused
to agree to eliminate the sum. This
caused a deadlock and prevented a
report on the entire bill, which con
tains many items other than those for
the various assay offloes. The matter
went back to both houses and the
house appointed new conferees, while
the senate returned the same members
to the conference. There is a ray of
hope in the fact that the house has
appointed new members, some of whom
may view the assay offloe appropria
tions in another light from that which
it was regarded by the original con
The present appropriation maintains
the assay offloes only until the olose of
business today. It is not known what
•"rangements will be made for oarrying
on the work until the matter of appro
priation has been finally passed upon
by congress, but. it is expeoted some
temporary plans will be announced by
the direotor of the mint soon.
Sooth Dakota Progressives Will Meet
Mitchell July 6th to Fill Vacancies
Mardo, 8. D., July 3,—G. O. Van
Meter, State obairman of the progres
aire party has issued a formal oall for
meeting of the executive committee
and candidates, to be held at Mitchell
next Monday, )uly 6. At this session
the makeup of the tioket will be oom
pleted" by the oommittee, as authorized
at the Haron oonvention, and plans
will be formulated for launching an
active campaign.
The oomplcted tioket will be duly
certified to the secretary of state and
it la the expectations of the progressive
workers that a group filing of the
oandldates will be acoepted nnder the
motto adopted at Hnron. "The Na
tlonal Progreesive Party." This motto
would identify the tioket almost as ef
fectively ae a regular party heading.
If the filing oannot be scoured in this
manner a court test will be launohed
at once to determine the party's rights
Falling to eaonre any relief in the court
aotion, the oommittee will take steps to

After the eleotion this fall it is not ex
peoted that any complication will be
in the way of a recognized party or
ganization, based upon the party can
didate for governor at this eleotion.
While the progreesive party workers
are somewhat disappointed at the de
olination of W. H. MoMaster to etand
as the oandidate for governor, the in
cident has not caused any discourage
mentor any changes in the determine
tion to make an aggressive fight all
along the line at the fall eleotion. The
oommittee has three or four guberna
torial candidates in mind and expects
to make a selection that will uphold
the dignity and strength of the tioket.
The "prospects" are kept seoret to pre
vent advance pressure for the republi
can candidates.
In addition to seleoting a oandidate
for governor, the oommittee will ohoose
the nominees for 6tate superintendent
and for congress in the Third district
neither of these plaoes .being filled at
the Huron convention, as the desire at
that time was to await the decision of
P. J. Tsobarner and Dr. Samuel Weir
about aocepting nominations.
Politioans generally concede that the
fight for United States senator will be
an exoiting oontest if Johnson, Burke
and Dowdell all promote aotive cam
paigns, as now seems assured.

It is simply fine. Mr. Dilley has had a

nearly two miles be has accomplished
wonders. The roads tiv the Park be

good but some work will be done to
improve these also. Besides building

"The plaoe I like best on board a ship
is way up on the top deck, among life
boats, and life preservers, with only the
sky above, and water in front.
Here one is really rooked in tbe
cradle of the deep, The wind whistles
thru the rigging, the waves audibly but
against tbe boat. Occasionally a sig
nal is heard from the bridge, repeated
in the crew's nest, and again at the
very bow of the boat.
Below there is always noise and oon
fusion, deok stewards running about,
passengers taking exercise, others
playing at shuffle board or quoits,
games of oardsgolngon in the "Lounge."
If the sea is rough, many remain In
their chairs, jarred In the oradle of the
We have had a very quiet time, No
sea at all. The ooean resembles a great
lake. We have sighted a few ships, bat
neither iceberg nor whale bas broken
the monotony of our sceuery. :,•
The weather has been warm, the
temperature of the water is 65 0'. I
saw it tested. A sailor lets down a
little buoket near the front of the boat*
gets a small quantity of water, and with
a small thermoneter takes the temper
ature. Nothing remarkable about thia^
but all things are interesting on ship
We vlBited tbe wireless, and the'
operator was kind enough to plaoe tbe
reoeiver on my head, and I actually
hard Bignals from a distant ahip.
The steerage is always interesting,
There are five hundred passengera
traveling steerage, mostly Italians. We
are not allowed to visit that part of the
boat, and I am glad of it, How they
must resent being gszed at by people
whose condition happens to be better
than thelrBl
Our first class passengers, four hund
red eighty in number, make up various
touring parties. Only a few are travel
ing "Solo". Teaohers, profeesorsi
pretty young ladies, and a sprinkling
of men. One Frenob lady exoites much
attention, if not admiration. She ap
pears in wonderful gowns, with wig to
matoh, takes her coffee and smokee
her cigarette in the Lounge room. If
being gazed at is what she wants, the
stare of tbe Amerioans on this boat
must satisfy her.
There is a Royal Italian commissioner
on board. He looks after tbe interests
of Italian passengers. Tbe Captain
runs the boat, but in oase of any emer
gency, the Ro^al Italians' word Is tbe
law. He is the court of highest appeal
and must be obeyed or tbe White Star
Line loses its right to land in any
Italian port.
We will soon be at Madeira there, for
tbe price of four dollars, they have ar-1
ranged to take us to the top of the
mountain whioh is about six thousand
feet high, and shoot us down a tobag

Miss Juokett, Miss Quarnberg and
