IiOi-al anil (ieneral News 1'ieked up in the City and Cleaned From Kxchamres. The Aberdeen News, in tin course of lengthy editorial discussing various rail road projects, says: "West of the river work is being pushed on the !!laek Hills Central, which will connect llapid City with the Wyoming coal fields, distant about sixty miles. Capitalists are also projecting a new line running east from Rapid City to I'ierre, thence northeast to thiscitv. The route has heen surveyed, estimates made and all the preliminary work concluded. lint the biggest enterprise of all is the proposed lit.e from the Twin cities and the lakes, through Aberdeen and liupid City, to tho Wyom ing coal tields. As previously stated, this road has been surveyed from Aberdeen to Rapid City and work ou the division from Rapid City to western Wyoming is now being pushed. The link connecting Aber deen and I'ierre, which was graded last year and year before, lias been paralleled by sinew survey, probably with the idea of forcing tho present owners to sell. This thev are not disposed to do at figures satisfactory to the would-be buy ers. It is a question whether tho owners of tho Pierre grade can procuro sufficient money with which to complete tliuir en '*•. terprise, but they confidently claim that they can. Thoy realize thai something must bo done immediately, and it is ci tato that if they do not utiii/.o the grade within tho year it will becoino worthless by reason of the fact that other partios are determined to parallel if they cannot purchase it on reasonable terms. The completion of this road would be the big gest thing imaginable for Aberdeen and the entire northern portion of the state, .• while this country would supply all the' vast mining territory with food stuffs—flour, vegetables and dairy pro ducts, besides hay and feed,—amounting to thousands and thousauds of cash dol lars each year. Moreover, tho inagnifi clent western coai fields would be brought almost to our doors. There is the strongest probability that all these pro jects will be completed this year or well undar way, and in addition tc them sev eral more which are at proscnt kept se erst."

From what we know now the company has not lis affairs in tip top shape, it- enterprise is assured, and any talk of a road paralleling is sim ply in the nature of a tilutl.

It lias been learned that small pox has again ap peared in the province of Manitoba, and it is thought should cholera visit Amer ica during tho coming season it might come by this route. Dr. Robinson in forms 11s ress wishes to add a word right here. We have the utmost faith in the management of tho new road which almost graded from Aberdeen to Pierre, do sot believe that any plan to force that the state board of South Dakota will probably enforce a state vaccination at some date in the near fu ture. This is a very important matter and should be looked after and encour aged, since a laiger number of the young people of our state, especially school children, have never been vaccinated. Tho meeting is to be held soon at Winni peg.
