A REAL AMERICAN NAVY
Since the government has opened a
naval recruiting station at Aberdeen
the navy has taken a new interest in
the eyes of the people.
Of late an effort is being made to
make the sea force more truly indeed
the American navy. None but born
or naturalized citizens are permitted
to enlist. Aliens in the service are
being weeded out and none are en
listed so that American ships shall
be manned by American citizens.
What is more, the average Ameri
can bluejacket today is from an in
land state. The navy is gathering its
men from the farm and the factory,
instead of picking up the scum of
of humanity which loafed along the
wharves, unable to make a living on
land. In the old days of course, real
seafaring men were required to man
the warships, but now that a battle
ship has become a lioating steam and
electrical plant, the old time sailor is
no longer required. 'n
DREW FOUR YEARS
After being out twelve hours, the
Aberdeen jury in the case of Eva
May Kreiter, at 10:20 o'clock Sunday
morning, returned a verdict of guilty
of murder in the second degree. The
penalty is from two to four years
in the state penitentiary.
Four years in state's prison at
Sioux Falls was the sentence impos
ed upon Eva May Kreiter by Judge
McNulty immediately after the noon
recess of circuit court. This sentence
is the full extremity of the law for
manslaughter in the second degree,
the^verdict returned by the jury. The
ptisoner received her sentence witl)
her usual seeming unconcern, laugh
ing and joking about it with bystand
ers. Bail was fixed at $2,000 and the
prisoner expresses a belief that she
can secure a bond.

TO HAVE KITTREDGE STATUE
Daily Argus-Leader: At a meeting
of the Kittredge Memorial committee
held yesterday afternoon, the plan of
having prepared an oil paintiDg of
the late Senator A. B. Kittredge was
changed, and it was decided instead
to have made a marble bust of the
late senator, and to install it in the
capitol at Pierre. H. Daniel Web
ster, formerly of Sioux Falls, the
well known sculptor who made the
Beadle statue, was present at the
meeting and was given the contract
to make the bust of Senator Kit
tredge. A contract was entered into
today between Mr. Webster and the
committee, and Mr. Webster will be
gin on the work as soon as he returns
to his studio in Connecticut. The
bust will be of Tennessee marble
which the artist selects as the best
available material for monumental
work of this kind, and the artist is to
have a year in which to turn over the
completed work to the committee.
It is expected that the bust will be
installed in the capitol in November,

DEATH OF ROY FARRAR
Roy Farrar, aged fourteen, a house
page at last legislative session was
ruptured two weeks ago by being
piled upon in a kid football game and
died Saturday. He was a boy of un
usual promise. The attending physi
cian corrects his early rei ort as to
the cause of Roy's death, saying that
while some injury was occasioned by
football, meningitis, not football, was
the primary cause.
The funeral services were held
from the family home Monday after
noon, and were largely attended by
school mates and friends of the be
reaved family. Interment waB made
at Riverside cemetery.

AMERICA AND ROME Vv
The creation of three American
cardinals, giving the United States
four representatives in the sacred
college, involves recognition of 1 he
developing prestige of the Americtn
Catholic church that must be gratil y
ing to all American adherents of that
faith. Catholicism in America is
young as time is measured in the his
tory of the great religious organiza
tion that has its headquarters in
Rome. Until only a few years ago
America was officially recognized at
Rotne only as a "missionary field,"
which it was in fact only a few score
years ago. Today, however, our in
sular possessions included, there are
more Catholics professing loyalty to
the American (lag than any of the
older countries cau muster. In the
United States proper, under the wise
governmental policy of equal rights
and liberties for all religious beliefs,
the Catholic cdurch has grown more
healthily and prospered more ina er
ially than in other countries wht ie
the relations of church and state ha
intermingled. Nor has there been
any conflict of loyalty in this coun
try. The American government has
no more loyal supporters than are to
be found in the membership roll of
the Catholic church. Nowhere can
the central government of the church
of Rome find more unswerving loyalty
and support than is given by the
Catholic citizens of America. The
healthy growth of the church in this
country has been largely promoted by
the leadership of the great phurchmen
who have been at the head of its tem
poral and spiritual affairs here, and
who have directed its development in
close harmony with the spirit of
American institutions. It is fitting
that they shall find recognition in the
central organization of the church,
and their identification with it can
not fail of good effect in strengthen
ing the organization.
