Ten additional buildings will be let on the 16th inst. Harry Carpenter, a young man who has been engaged in herding cattle on a ranch west of Pierre, was thrown from his horse and killed. He struck on his head and never regained consciousness. Will Lewis, another boy. was out hunt ing, and in attempting to shoot, a gun barrel exploded and both hands were terribly lasoerated, some of the fingers being blown entirely off. Lead dispatch, 5: H. L. Loucks, pres ident of the National Farmers' Alliance, is in the Hills trying to create some en thusiasm among his followers. He opened the campaigb at Deadwood on the evening of August 3, and at Central City on the 4th. He will make probably a dozen addresses in the different cities of the Hills, and one of the most impor tant will be in this city, although the date has not vet been decided on. The following words of Editor Shan non, of the Huronite, president of the board of regents, in connection with his late visit to the Madison Normal school, will be appreciated by Madison people: "The roll of the Madison Normal is now ICO. The school sticks closely to its le gitimate business, that of preparing teachers for the common schools of the state, and, at this moment, is probably the most useful of the educational insti tutions maintained by the state. With its present equipment and appropriations it is working very nearly up to its full capacity. Not more than forty addition al students could be accommodated. Inter-Ocean: Mr. Theodore Justice, who is an expert on. such matters, has explained to the Wool Growere' conven tion. in session at Chicago, the relation, i.r rather the absence of relation, of cheap wool to cheap clothing. In the suit that I now wear," said Mr. Justice, "there are about three and one-fourth pounds of wool." The suit was such an one as sells at •15, or thereabouts, in clothing stores. "The price of such wool as is used in this suit," continued Mr Justice, "is 81K cents in London, where wool is free raw material." So that the difference between the 81.^ cents paid in London for free wool and the $1.50 paid for like wool in Philadelphia is al that "free wool" ooald make between the* price of an American made suit from "free wool" and one made from free woo1 under the present rate of duty. To get cheap clothing you must have cheap labor, for the coat of the raw wool in suit that costs 815 is but about $1.50 with duty, and about "82 cents without duty. No one would be benefitted by making wool duty free. in American ports except the large manufacturers. The difference between $1.50 and 82 cents on each one o? 100,000 suits would be enormous, but the difference of cost to the buyer at relati practically would be nothing. Very tew can reach deep into tiieir own minds without meeting what they to hide from themselves HILL DEFEATED. Tbe Great Nonhern Fail* to Get (Ton* trol of the bloux City Road. Sioux CITY, la., Oct. 7.—When the federal court convened here during the morning Judge Shiras announced that ae the parties to the contest over the Sioux City and Northern receivership had teen unable to agree on a receiver he would take the matter into his own bands. He had decided to name two receivers, Judge Warwick P. Hough of St. Louis for tfce unsecured creditors, and 8. J. Eeals for the bondholders and Great Northern interests. They were candidates of both sides, and an agree* ment could be reached on a third party. The court was clearly in sympathy with the unsecured creditors, and said as much. The arrangement is a defeat for the Hill interests, which began the fight, confident that their candidate would be named. The bond of each irwaiver was fixed at $50,000. LOSE THEIR HOMES.
