JohniL. Lockhart is Presented With a Handsome Gold *t Watch. was a Token From Citizens for His Strenuous and Effective Capital Speeches. i/'iiM Mail Clerk is Found Sho% in His Money atters. Saturday evening citizens of Pierre number of about forty "assembled the Commercial Club rooms for a urpose in which they all had the liveli st interest, and one they felt could not overdone. These citizens were: the ontributors to a handsome sum which ad been devoted to the purchase of an -leg an I gold watch, chain and jeweled haiintoj^be presented to one of our est honored citizens, Hon. John L. ockhart. After all had assembled a essenger was sent to Mr. Lockhart.'s lace of business, requesting his pres nce at the club rooms. He was un ware of the occasion or the presenta ion, and upon 1, his arrival L. L. Stephens, who had been delegated for he purpose, addressed Mr. Lockhart in the following wordn: ".Tack, as we iv»i called you a .vny from your business tonight and asked you to .meet with us, your friends and fellow citizens, for the purpose of ex pressing in some slight'measure our gratitude to you and our appreciation of your efforts in the late capital cam paign. During the past two years and especially during the last six months preceeding election day, there were times when the heart of every loyal citizen was wrung with fear fear that the toil and savings of years might be swept away and the very existeuoe of our home, where so many of us have lived and hope some day to die, might be imperiled. During all that time you have been to us and each of us, a tower of strength in our hour of darkness you have been to us the tall pine in the forest, that bends before the storm but never breaks striving always to gain its upright position and never losing courage you have sacrificed your time, your money jand your personal interests, drawing from an apparently inexhausti ble fund of talent and resource, upar dizing your health and your very life, unseltishly and in your own patriotic spirit. For| these things, for every sleepless night that you have spent, for ever} hour's work and talk and thought, for every eloquent address delivered and every vote influenced, we honor you and are youfdebtors. From your Scottish ancestors you received an inheritance of truth and rectitude which has gained for you respect and friendship, but it has remained for you, by your own per sonal qualities to obtain that for which men have fought and.died, the admira tion of mankind. Words must ever fail to convey the emotions of the hu man heart and what is left unsaid here tonight, you must read in after years from the esteem and admiration so richly merited and so freely bestowed. God grant the page be long and pleas ant. It has been the wish of your fel low citizens, in token of their love and appreciation, that you possess a me mento, something to carry with you al ways and remind you of this time, and on their behalf I now present to you the little gift selected. Compared with your efforts in the common cause, its intrinsic value is nothing, but when I say to you that with it goes the love of all your townsmen, 1 know no man will prize it more. Wear it Jack, God's benison go with it, and remember, it will never indicate an "hour when loyal hearts and welcoming hands do not '•await you in "Peerless Pierre," your home." Mr. Lockhart replied feelingly in a few well-chosen words, in which he ex pressed his thanks for the handsome present and his appreciation of the feeling towards him amongst his fellow citizens. The time piece is of solid gold, and the works the best to be had. A dia mond is set in the back of the case, which is heavily chased, engraved and ornamented. On the inner side of i?- the case is engraved these words: "Presented to John L. Lockhart by the Citizens of Pierre. Capital'campaign of 1904." On the front of the cast- is a monogram with the initials, '*J. L. L." The chain has an Elk charm with seven diamonds, and a fine elk tooth, $ 4 1 Carl Young Disgraced. I or more For the past twenty years Carl Young has1been one of the rail way mail clerks running on the Tracy ^nd Pierre route. He is as well known in this city as any of our old time citizens, and has always been well liked and respected. The following dispatch from Tracy, Minn., dated the 17th in dicates he is in deep trouble, and from other sources we learn he cannot get bonds and will remain in'jail until June,when his trial will be held "A sensation was caused here when Carl Young, secretary of the Tracy Building and arrested, Loan association,.. was charged with larceny in the first degree. About a month ago, Mr. Young dis appeared no trace of him being found, for nearly tw® wa® •V covered in a somewhat delerious con^ diiionIn a hptel at Ma^feato. y' f^This prolonged absent caused stock rolders and bondsmen in the building loan association to become bus clous.

The Andrews Opera company played Monday and Tuesday nights at*-the opera house, to fair houses. The first night the play was "Birds of a Feath er, and the second, "Fra Diavola," This is one of the best show companies on the road, and the performances were a whole lot better than the usual run of shows that come to Pierre.
