tiatered in the postoflice at Pierre, S.
as aecoud class matter.
'Ac^ordi ng to expectations, the
last issue of the Redlield Press,
edited by 0. Sanctimonious Bus
ford, was largely devoted to the
Free Press aad Hoq,. (1 H. Burke.
After a careful perusal of what
the Press has to say the only
clusion is that it hasn't said any
thing, albeit the paper still per
sistn in reiterating and working
over the falsehoods it furnished
in past issues.
The'only point at i^suc just
now, between the Free Press and
Mr. BasfonFs paper, is that the
latter has printed the statement
that Congressman Burke has been
opposed to the rate legislation
proposed by the president of the
United States. This paper, by
printing a part of the Congres
sional Record, and referring to
other parts of it, giving pages
and dates, lias conclusively proven
that Mr. Burke has stood and
now stands with President Roose
velt on the railroad rate propoi
tion. Basford waives all tlii
aside—the official record—and
frantic-ally proceed.-- to iciicritte
his falsehoods and try to deceive
the people, notwithstanding he
frequently wears the cleriral
robes of a church anvl preaches
his hearers a certain passage in
Holy Writ, found in Exw?*is
twentieth chapter, whirh say*,

The Fre^ Press is pleased to
note that the Journal Observer,
of itedtieid, printed entire tne
article in this paper, which gives
Mar. Burke's reeord in congress
on the rate question, so that the
readers of both the Journal Ol

will 'be able to judge as to who is
the liar.

has,startod an innovation in police
discipline, the city of Evan
ston, that might well spread all
over the country. He is just
about the right kind of a man to
inaugurate such a scheme, and 'ie
will tind, if the present force in
Evanston does not want to work
under his orders, that there will
be plenty ihore who do. The
Free Press has known Col. Frost
intimately the past, lie is a
man who accomplishes what he
undertakes, and there is never
any fooling about it. Here's to
Col. Frost.
The Deadwood Times sizes it
up in the following original style:
'•The Sioux Falls Press, which
stands for zero in politics, as it
does in religion, is still sawing
away on thai one-stringed old
riddle—the 'republican machine.
The press has a limited np-nber
of Don Quixotes and Sancho Pan
zns who arc to make all sorts of
trouble for the machine. If we
are to believe the Press Don
Crawford now has a Sancho Panza
in the person of one who is known
to the common herd as L. H.
Bentley. of Grant county. Don
Crawford is to sally forth with a
spear and helmet and capture the
toga, of Senator (iambic next year,
and this man Sancho Bant ley is to
lead other insurgents and hob
goblins and take for his reward
the seat now being held- down in
the lower house of congress by
Mr. Burke. Sanco poses as a
"Roosevelt republican"'—a cham
pion of railroad and anti-trust
legislation, unmindful of the fact
that Mr. Burke voted for the
Eseh-Towusend bill when it pass
ed the house. Viewed from this
distance it is a safe prediction
Sanco will have a much smaller
following than Don Crawford had
for governor last year. But it is
gratifying to know that the so
called insurgent republicans east
of the river are more prone to
tight windmills than booze. Don
and Sanco may afford some amuse
ment in the next state convention
of the republicans."
The Mitchell Gazette observes
that there are just nineteen news
papers in the state that have not
been bought by the railroad in
terests, and names them. The
Gazette might as well include the
Free Press in the list though this
paper, on the other hand, would
object to being in the same cate
gory as the Gazette, the -Redfield
Press, Sioux Falls Press, High
more Bulletin, et al. While the
Free Press has favored always a
liberal policy towards the rail

Pierre Daily Dakotan:
a recent,
issue of the (jreencastle, Intl., JSanner,
an old friend of (Jovernor Klrod writes
the following interesting letter about
his impressions of l'ierre and vicinity:
Pierre, S. I)., May 2U, I'.tO'j.
To come to South Dakota and take a
claim is not the hardship it was thiity
years ago. Even though one has to go
forty miles from the railroad, good
neighbors are plenlil ul.
Twenty three years ago
.June 23 a
young man graduated at (Jreencast-le
and seven days later arrived on the
construction train at Clark, S. D. The
next day lie built a 10x12 shack and
hung out his shingle---"S. II. Elrod, at
torney." Today he is the honored gov
ernor this great state. Some citizens
of (ireencast.le and Putnam county are
thinking of going west—some of taking
claims and others of making invest
ments, and all such, would recom
mend going to Pierre, S. D. President
Hughes has a brother and a sister liv
ing here who came out a year ago.
These two came along with two min
ister's colonies from the Ottuinwa dis
trict. Their claims may be proved up
now any time and are worth S800 to
#1,000 each. There are a few quarter
sections of land in this neighborhood
which may be had for the taking.
Pierre is a town of 4,000 and is the
permanent capital of the state. It is
the terminus ot the Northwestern rail
road and is located 011 the east bank of
the Missouri river. This railroad is
likely to be extended to the ljlack Hills
in the near future. Land taken up
within ten or lifteen miles of this rail
road west of Pierre will then be worth
$2,500 a quarter section. Pierre is sure
to double and treble in size within a
few years. The capitol building to cost
$800,000 has just been contracted for.
The postodice and government building
is now under way being built of Bed
ford stone. It is to cost
will be the most expensive postollice
building for the size of the town in the
United States. Pierre has natural gas
and is the only town in the state that
can boast of it. Everybody uses it. All
modern improvements, such as electric
lights, water works, and so forth, are
already here. There is no boom on but
a strong healthy growth has set in
since the capital question was setlled
last fall.
There is a one fare rate, plus §2, the
firsthand third Tuesdays of every month
Governor El rod will show Putnam
county citizens a good time who call
011 him. J. K. Laughlin invested §500
several years ago in a quarter section
on the advice of Governor Klrod and
today could sell it for §2,500. South
Dakota has a great future. During the
past two years it has lead Iowa, Illi
nois and the whole country in the in
crease of wealth per capita based on
agricultural products. What it needs
above everything else is settlers. De
Patnv's interstate orator is a South Da
kota product and it is claimed there are
others just as good who are headed for
DePauw next September.

Canada's sales of farm products to
foreign countries last year were .f 14,
000-000 greater than the combined
value ot all our other exports—from
forests, fisheries, mines, ships or fac
torles. This in a nutshell tells the fn
ture of the great west. Here is the
growing ^ud the breeding ground for
all that goes to make up the Domin
ion's greatest heritage. Canada's total
sales to other countries last year came
to $214,000,000 farm produce supplied,
#114,000,000 of that. Such is, the mean
ing of agriculture to western Canada
it means more'than all other industries
put together.

The foremost biologist of our day,
M. Metschniljoff, lias shown the world
of science that there are leucocytes in out
blood tbat act as scavengers or policemen.
These policemen which are cailed phago
cytes look out for the noxious or poisonous
elements in our bloed. Various offending
elements are picked out of the blood and
tissues by these policemen and destroyed.
Therefore our lives are protected by
these blood-cell-polieemen, the phagocytes,
and we enjoy immunity from disease so
long as our blood contains plenty of phago
cytes and red blood corpuscles.
"A new broom sweeps clean"—and in
order to put our own house in order we
must pet rid of all the poisons in the blood
with a new broom such as an alterative
extract made from roots and herbs—with
out the use of alcohol, Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery, a specific for
making rich red blood—tor eradicating the
poisons from the blood. In some \vay the
policemen in the blood are increased in
number and strength—so that we are put
in the best possible shape to resist disease
—to cure neuralgia, cold's, catarrh, and in
cipient consumption.
"The more study and time is given to the
subject the more we find that the blood is
the center of life"—say« Dr. R. V. Pierce,
the noted specialist of Buffalo, "the health
and comfort of the average person depends
entirely on this blood supply—for tlve heart
must have pure blood or it .will not pump
and keep the body supplied regularly like
the beautiful automatic" engine i'fis. The
nerves must be. fed on pure blood—or we
suffer the pain of neuralgia, which is the
cry of the starved U'orves for food. Head
aches, cold in the head, catarrh—and many
other things are due to stagnation of the
l)r. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are a mild
laxative. No )ther medicine equals then*
for gentleness and thoroughness.
