J. E. Turner, our butter andeggaship
per took his departure for his home in
Rockford, 111., this morning, leaving his
business in charge of Mr. A. A. Abbott
for the winter. During his summer stay
here Mr. Turner has bought and ship
ped to eastern markets, 188,080 dozen of
eggs at a cost of $19,550.01 and 94,706
pounds of butter at a cost of $12,445.41.
This total of nearly $32,000 has been a
source of revenue to our farmers and
businees men during a season of the
year between the maturing of crope,
when much needed, and the encourage
ment given to the industry by Mr.
Turner's successful business methods is
duly appreciated by a large constituency*
In regard to his resignation tendered
to the city councillast evening, Alder
man O. O. Murray said to a Daily
Leader reporter: "I do not think I am
eligible for the position under Chapter
37, Article 4, Section 5, laws of 1890, my
business partner, C. J. Porter, having re
cently been appointed city attorney, and
qualified. There might something come
up in connection with the bond election
that would complicate matters if I were
a member of the council, and I think it
best to be on the safe side. I do not
think' there is any likelihood
bonds carrying, but they might.1* Mr.
Murray is a competent alderman, and
his constituents in the Second ward will
regret his determination to resign. The
vacancy must be tilled by election.
The oounty commissioners have taken
the following action in regard to the
dicision of Judge Aikens concerning the
abatement of the Chautauqua tax: "In
the matter of taxation of the Lake Madi
son Chautauqua association, the states
attorney was instructed to make a
motion for a new trial and if denied ap
peal the case to the supreme court, from
the decision of the circuit court holding
that its property is not liable to tax
ation." This is a case in which it would
seem the commissioners ought to be
more lenient, and not attempt to force
taxation upon the Chautauqua associ
ation's property at all hazard. Of
course it is well understood that the
purposes of the Chautauqua association
not speculative. The decision of
Judge Aikens makes leased lots taxable
which gives the county a greatly in
creased income from the Chautauqua
grounds over farm land. The mission of
the Chautanqua accociation is religious,
education 1 and scientific instruction,
without profit, and the property
necesary for its purposes ought to be ex
empt from taxation.

The audience at the popular meeting
of the Synod last evening was highly
entertained. Rev. A. M. Work presided,
Rev. Geo. Williams, of Mitchell, read the
scripture lesson and Rev. H. P. William
son led in prayer. Mrs. J. Y. Ewart,
corresponding secretary for the Woman's
Board of South Dakota, read her report,
which was more than pleasing and in
structive. She drew a beautiful parallel
between the claims of the Israelites to
take possession of Canaan and our
duty co take possession of South Dakota
for Christ. Her report showed that the
woman's societies had 33 more members
this ear than last and that $159 more
money had been raised by them. Much
of their money goes tobuiiding chuches.
The total membership was 689, and con
tributions $588*17, Central Dakota Pres

Mrs. J, H. Pierson, of the Woman's
Executive committee of New York, then
stirred every heart in the audience in
giving an account of the work done by
their 122 missionaries in south and west,
32 of whom were in Utah, 12 among the
Freed men and the rest among the
Indians and Mexicans. Women's work
is an educating one, and the heathen in
this country moat be ..reached through
the children. Women have a work in
the church as well as men attfi fcbey
should do their duty.
Devotional meeting at 8:30 was led by
Rev. Geo. Williams, of Mitchell, a good
attendance and deep spiritual feeling
At 9 a. m. the regular work of the
Snyod begun with Moderator D. M.
Butt, presiding. The place of absentees
on the various standing committees were
filled by tbe appointment of members
present, and the roll call was then made.
The reason given for tardiness in reach
ing the Synod were quite amusing, many
resolving themselves into the fact thet
Synod met before the trains arrived.
An invitation from President Beadle
to visit the Normal school was tendered
Rev. J. S. Sherrill, of Minneapolis, edi
tor of the "Presbyterian Northwest," ad
dressed the body a few minutes on tbe
"Religious Press," setting forth the aim
and work of his paper in aid of the
cause. A vote of thanks and endorse
ment was moved which gave rise to
spirited criticism of the paper's attitude
towards home missionaries and the
"higher criticism," which Mr. Sherrill
ably met and explained away. The vote
Rev. Dr. Carson, ay nodical missionary
then mad? bis report on tbe year's work
in the field, which brought forth ap
plause at the close. The report shows
that the Home Mission work under the
Board began in 1872 in Dakota, when
one church was organized. Then five
years followed without mission work.
In 1878 the work was again taken up
with two missionaries, and three
churches established. During the de
cade of 1880 to 1890, the number of mis
sionaries increased from 7 to 63 tha
churches from 10 with 149 members, to
121 churches and 4,440 members from
two houses of worship and no manse, to
99 houses of worship and 20 manses
from no school property, to an academy
and a college with four buildings and a
property worth at least $30,000 and frqp
from all debt. The lack of growth dur
ing the past two years has been due to
i droughts and crop failure and the shrink

age of popilation. The work of the cur
rent year has been progressive. Four
new churches have been established,
eight mort have been supplied with pas
tors that last year two have become
seir-auppcrting—Woonsocket and Brook
ings. Th» outlook for the ooming year
is very encouraging.
Rev. A. Work read the *eport of the
committer of Home Missions, covering
much the same ground za that gone
over by the Bynodical missionary. His
report fruu the five Presbyteries shows
83 ministers in 1893 as against 78 in 1892,
but 13 net in effective service. Of the 78
reported i n 1892, seventeen were not in
effective service, thus showing again of
The field and the Board have contrib
uted about 865,000 for the work of the
past year. We have gained one organ
ized church, seven ruling elders, twelve
deacons and 877 members. The whole
number of additions during the year has
been 735 members. The increase of Sab
bath school attendance has been about
700. Our church membership in the
Synod is about 5,000. The self-support
ing churches in the Synod are: Huron,
Aberdeen, Woonsocket, Brookings, and
First German church of Turner oounty
The Synod has drawn from the board of
Home Missions about $28,000, and has
contributed to the Board $3,001. Last
year we gave nearly $600 more to For
eign Missions than to Home this year
we gave nearly $1,500 more to Home
than Foreign Missions. The 17 Indian
churches are largely responsible for this
change. Twenty-nine of our 122
churches gave nothing to this cause last
year. Some of our churches need
spiritual stirring up.
Rev. E. Nugent gave a favorable ac
count of the mission work in the Black
Dr. H. P. Williamson, the old Sioux
Indian missionary, gave a most interest
ing account of tbe work amocg the In

The raising of a committee to seoure
an evangelist and his support for this
Synod provoked an animated discussion,
but the resolution prevailed and the
Following Mrs. Pierson's impressive
paper, Mrs. Geo. Tuttle sang a beautiful
solo, and Dr. W. C. Roberts, secretary of
the Board of Home Missions, New York,
was introduced. The Doctor is a learn
ed, eloquent, sturdy Welshman of hu
morous vein and forcible address. He
was here at the birth of the Dakota
Synod nine years ago and spoke in com
plimentary terms of its growth. He ex
pressed the sympathy of the board with
the home missionaries in their work and
regretted that it could not always do
better by them. Twelve years ago the
receipts of the board were $3,625, six
years after $6000, and last year, $1,000,
000, and yet the churches give little
more now to this board than they did
ten years ago. Of this increase, the
Woman's Board furnish over $300,000
the greater portion of the balance com
ing from iddividual gifts and legacies,
running as high as $25,000. Children
should be systematically trained to give.
The board sometimes gets greatly be
hind, but New York bankers loan them
all they want, at 6 per cent even in
these hard financial times. The bbard
has borrowed as high as $325,000 from
one bank at the regular rate, which
showed the confidence moneyed men
had in the great Presbyterian church.
Dr. Roberts, address was a powerful
appeal for more faith, prayer and sup
port, The board sustains nearly 1700
missionaries in the field.
A vote of thanks was tendered the
speakers of the eveniDg and also the
banker of New York who so valiantly
stands by the church.

showed a very flattering coudition of the

Mrs. Pierson addressed the meeting on
"The Work of Presbyterian Women for
Home Missions" which is very Jhigbly
commended for its earnestness and in
sight into the needs of the work sod
what women can do for it.
Miss Chase, of Parker, representing
the Y. P. 8. E. societies of the state read
a most instructive paper on the relation
of these societies to Mission work. Miss
Cliase goes to Mr. Moody's training

go$j abroad as a missionary.
This afternoon the society listened to
