In this we refer to the snug sum that

The woeful lack of moisture that has
visited the western stales for the. past
several years, which has induced a gen
eral failure of crops, has been the
means of seriously distu-bing political
relations. In fact this dereliction on
the part of nature has been the means I
of starting into life a party that has
founded ils platform on the. idea thai
rumpus .In,. republican mismanagement, the
out- Mclvinley bill, and such things.
One of these political freaks has late
ly been airing these views in a lengthy
correspondence lo the Yankton Herald.
We subjoin a few extracts from his
communication, to show to what
lengths of absurdity the matter has
come:
"The MelCinlcy bill is a bad ca&e of
the grip on the. fanners' and working
men's pockets. Kro long the people
will have the grip on the throat of the
Mclvinley bill—to die in agony, amidst
its worshipers. Koree bills—tax bills
and subsidy steals, will then take
their llight, to roost with Pluto's foul
birds of the u'ght, and democracy will
enthrone liberty, law and justice in the
right. The lords of the Mc
Kinley bill, and the recipients of mil
lions and mil Minis of dollars taken from
•illhusia-in. I poi'-kets of millions of toilers—by a
system called by the late. Judge Miller,
of the United States supreme court,
'legalized robbery—-under the name of
subsidies.'—he (speaking of a noted re
am! enlarging their pu|,]j( ati orator) would have seen the
ideas of the ipialities of the chief exeeu great west crushed to the. very verge of
tivc, and at the same time giving the I absolute ruin and bankruptcy. 11c
latter a better opportunity to study the would have seen thousands and tens of
needs of the people lie is called on to thousandsof farmers driven from their
homes by the foreclosure of mortgages.
He would have seen thousands and tens
of thousands of farmers stretching out
withered, palsied arms, asking for
charity! charily!! He would have seen
agriculture in our own prosperous
country in the same condition as H.
Harrison, president, saw our coninierce
when he wrote his first message: 'The
commerce of the United S'ates is in a
most deplorable condition.' Does not

charity!'." and we also liml that the
deplorable condition of agriculture that
exists in this and other western states is
due to the same causes brought on
through the fell designs of the repub
lican party to ruin the agricultural
classes, and not by the scarcity of rain
fall and the dry weather, that, in truth,
has been the universal cause of depres
sion and hard times, not only in fann
ing, but every other business that de
pends on this foundation of our pros
perity.
And yet such irrational and prepos
terous ideas as those contained in the
quoted words given above have been
the means of starting into life what is
known as the independent party, ll
has been the stocK-in-trade of inde
pendent orators and newspapers, who
have followed out this notion with a
persistency that can only be abated by
the renewal of prosperous times, which
will surely come with the blessings of
rain in plenty and a consequent agri
cultural boom.
LI:T IT KAIN.
The rains that are visiting every sec
tion of the state will give all manner of
vegetation such a vigorous and healthy
start that it will take more than the
ordinary amount of drouth and hot
winds, should they como later on, to
afl'eet the growth. There have been
prophecies and prophecies of good
crops during the past few years of fail
ure, but the present season certainly
seems to contain much larger promise
for a bountiful harvest than any since
1883. The land is being deluged with
long-continued rains such as we have
not experienced for the past seven
years. The weather factory seems to
have an entirely new manager in
oharge, who is generous to a fault in
dispensing the wet goods. With a con
tinuance of his administration the gold
en northwest will this year straighten
out the kinks of adversity and become
as new. Farm lands will rise in value
EVcfTf Y/QMAN THAT HAS ANY 5EN5E,
And
V/ILL
parly, is
entirely responsible for the shortcom
ings of nature aforesaid, and has given
employment to an army of political
hacks, who have gone about preaching
that the misfortunes of the people are
from the beggarly pittance with which
they can now be nought to a hauil-onie
price. The farmer will again jjo f"itii
to plant his fields, with the Unowl. .luc
that a good prolit is in store. All llii
means more to the country in its
advancement than anything cl-e in
the way of widespread bcnclit. The
cities and towns as well will feel the
new impulse of life and gather new
force. With Pierre it menimmore in
the way of prosperity, in the end, than
the location of a do/en capitals and
oilier advantages because these la-l
can never prosper without the thrift of
the surrounding country to back lli' in.
Lot us hope that the rains may continue
and thus give proof to the world iliat
South Dakota's soil and climate are
nneqnaleil for producing, and furnish
such substantial evidence of her qual
ities as to give, thi iiomcseeUers and
capital proof that tliey will liml no bet
