The evil of permitting the pro

|during each legislative session could
not foe more forcibly illustrated than
the plight into wh'lch this state
has toeen put by the paid lobbyists of

presenting the various interests of
corporations doing business in this
State, since the interests which they
serve are in no manner antagonistic,

The corporation organ says: "A
democratic senator or represpntative
from Brown county would not be
'deuce high' In the coming legisla
ture." That remains to be seen. The
flrst .thing that a republican law
maker, if one is elected from this
county, should do when he goes to
Pierre is to clear himself from t'ne
remotest suspicion of being in any
way under the influence of the mal
oderous little lobbyist from this
county who attends each legislative
session. This legislature it must bp
remembered will be anti-machine,
composed largely of men who hold in
deepest distrust this whole machine
gang, from Frank Crane down to Mc
Leod. That men coming to Pierre re
puted to bear the stamp of approval
of the local boss will toe more ac
ceptable to the dominant element as
co-workers in the fight against cor
porate control of state affairs
than the gentlemen the demociats
present to voters of this county for
legislative honors, is drawing it too
strong. Farther, the fact has been
recalled by several geutlement In this
city who have watched legislative
matters closely, that a few sessions
back the evil influence of the local
boss became so odious that Brown
county ipeople desiring legislation on
certain subjects -had to cover up most
carefully the fact that any Brown
county interest was being served, in
order to secure favorable considera
tion of a measure.
Only during the last sessiou at
times the machine papers jeering!y
charged the republicans of the 'houso
with being under t'he lead of Mr.
Gross, democratic member from Pot
ter county. It will be remembered
that some .wit said, no bill could pass
the house unless It was "en-Grosaed."
The fact is that it is the McLeod leg
islator who would not be "deuce
high." A delegation of democrats
from this county, free of factional
trammels and untainted .by boss con
trol, would do most excellent work
for the county. They would not only
give loyal assistance in the work of
vitalizing the Sioux Falls platform,
but go the insurgents several better.
Try them, Mr. Voter.
Isaac Ritter of Riverside, candi
date for the senate, was, born in
Ashland Ob'io, in 1848. Served In
23d Ohio volunteers till the end of
the civil war. Became a resident of
Michigan in '65 and removed to Da
kota in '81. Elected sheriff of Brown
county in '96. Is very popular.
Walter' G. Jacobs is our other sen
atorial candidate of whom a sketch
appeared in a previous number.
S. A. Buckmaster of 'Hecla, candi
date for the house, was born in
southern Illinois in 1842. He comes
of a distinguished faonlly, his father
being prominent in public affairs of
the state for many years. He came to
this county in '83.
J. H. Bockler of Rondell was born
in Washington county, Wis., Is -well
known throughout the county, being
county commissioner for two terms..
Came to Brown county in 1882.
•Conrad Von Wald of Hanson 'has
been a candidate for the house once
before, making a good run. He was
born in Germany, coming to Dakota
with the first rush from 'Wisconsin.
He will ably represent southeastern
Brown county.
Patrick Callahan of Franklyn is
one of the 'most popular citizens of
the northwestern part of the county,
a representative farmer who would
do igood service at Pierre. iHe was one
of the flrst settlers in Ms township.
The News man in a recent editor
ial-gives as one of the reasons why
"he should be considered as an es
pecially good judge of the kind of
men 'Brown county should send to
the legislature, that he "bas been in
close touch with the legislative do
Zings At Pierre." This fact can be
vouched for to the grief of t'he people
of this state. The presence of 'Mc
Leod and men of his ilk at the state
capital during each legislative ses
sion has been the curse of our law

avoid being beaten in the race by a

Travel on country roads since the
recent snow and rains has been sug
gestive of needed reforms in road
making. 'When the middle of the
road, the main travelled portion is
deep mud, we are grateful for tlie
firm strip of sod on either side over
which the light vehicle can speed.
But when as too often happens the
land owner has been too inconsider
ate of the rights of the wayfarer, or
too greedy and has plowed up to
the narrow track in the center from
which there is no escape, we think
something ought to be done to pre
serve the rights of the traveling pub
lic. The law of South Dakota gives
to the public for highway purposes
two rods on each side of all section
lines, although one rod, each side,
under ordinary circumstances is all
that 'is needed. There should be a
strong public sentiment aroused
against land owners who crowd the
traffic into a narrow single track in
the center of the legal highway, over
which in times like the present it
becomes impossible to draw a load.
Some farmers encroach upon the road
thoughtlessly, some with the Idea
of doing a positive service to the pub
lic in clearing rubbish from the
roadside "which might'hold snow .but
still mistakes are made in this res
pect and It would be better if
it was left to some competent per
son to say how and .when dirt should
be moved in the highway proper.
There is no question as to the
benefits that must accrue to farmers
as a class from organization. That
farmers' organizations as a rule have
been of an ephemeral nature cannot
toe 'denieti, but too much has always
been promised by the organizer or
expected of the organization. Expec
tations were excited that naturally
could not ibe realized and disappoint
ment, loss of interest and final dis
ruption always resulted. The Grange
which still flourishes in many locali
ties in the eastern states, comes the
nearest to being a permanent success.
Where farmers and their families
come together just to 'have a social
time twice a month and talk over
farm topics, not expecting to turn
the world upside down or revolution
ize everything inside of a year, an or
ganization ought to flourish. More
cooperation among farmers would be
greatly beneficial and organizations
must precede cooperation
Numerous experiments have beeu
made •with the different varieties of
hedge plants. For a wind or snow
break the golden Russian willow is
the peer of all other trees, 'being a
rapid grower, perfectly hardy ind
drouth resistant to .1 remarkable de
gree after becoming established. In
from three to five years it attains
considerable height an4 Ic-nsny and
Is not injured from the weight of
drafting snows.
If cut back a few times and ihrn
permitted to grow tall the golden
Russian willow will 'n a few years
make a dense shelter hedge from fif
teen to twenty-flve feet in height.—

History of Case is Interesting in That
it Has Been Appealed and Reversed
Several Times—Involves Valuable
Ranch Property Near Leola in Mc
Pherson County.
The celebrated contest case of Ray
Williamson vs. Elizabeth A. Gualey
involving the ownership of the large
and valuable Gauiey ranch near
Leola in tMoPherson county will be
submitted to the secretary of the in
terior for final settlement. Attorneys
for the respective sides are now pre
paring briefs to submit to the secre
tary, and will be forwarded within a
few days. Taubman, Williamson &
Herreid are the attorneys for the
plaintiff and I. O. Curtiss and Brown
Bros, for the defendant.
The history of the case is inter
esting. The case was first tried at
the local land office two years ago
with the result that the verdict was
given to the plaintiff. An appeal
was made to the land commissioner
at Washington and he reversed the
decision. The plaintiff will now ap
peal the case to the highest authority.
Its result will be watched with in

two murdered men which' were in

today for a more thorough investi

men is thought to have lived at one

The eletter described one of the .men
as a fellow with red hair and a gold

of them a gold tooth. One of them
bore a scar on his right leg 'below

solving the mystery as they were

Too Close to Heart to be Removed
Mitchell, S. D., Nov. 1.—It is like
ly that Policeman Walter Newman
will have to carry the bullet he re
ceived in his breast at 'the hands of
his would-be assassin some three
weeks ago. Sunday night Newman
was taken to the office of Dr. R. C.
Warne and an examination was
made of him with the X-ray machine.
The bullet was located lying two
inches from the lefit lung and in very
close proximity to the heart. On ac
count of its being so close to the
heart it is not likely that the phy
sicians will aittempt its removal, and
if the wound clears itself of the mat
ter there seems to be little doubt
that he will recover. The bullet in his
breast does not give him any trouble.
The citizens of the city in the past
week have raised the sum of 5125
cash, which was presented the
wounded policeman. The city is pro
viding a nurse and the attendance of
the physicians during the sickness of
Newman, and his salary will go on
just the same.
