Squatters Take Possesaiou of Milwaukee
Lake Bed* North of Weatwortk
Within the past few days a condition
of things has existed in Lake county
that is calculated to remind one of the
struggle* incident to requirement of land
in Oklahoma and other choice spots in
Uncle Sam's domain. Between one and
two miles north of Wentworth, in Lake
county, is situated what is known as
Milwaukee Lake, regularly meandered.
Origionally the lake covered about 1,100
acres of land. During the past several
years the water has been receding until
the lake bed has been transformed into
hay land, the past year the entire bed
being dry. Within the past two days
eight squatters bave settled on the lake
bed and erected shacks, and many others
are preparing to do likewise, and the
general appearance there is that a city
is well under way on the spot where a
few years ago the pioneers of Lake
county angled for the finny trib^ and
bagged unlimited numbers of water
fowl. The question now is, what are
the owners of land abutting the lake
bed going to do about it? Among them
owners are Postmaster Tobin of this city,
who owns a large body of land on the
northeast, the Richarda, Greenhagens,
Abrahams, and others. No move has
yet been made to eject the squatters,
but the shore owners have rights it the
matter of accretion which they will un
doubtedly protect in the courts... Cases
of this kind have been a fruitful cause of
litigation and the books are full of de
cisions relating thereto, but court deci
sions arc not usually calculated to cover
knotty caees that are continually arising.
However, injunction proceedings in tins
case, which will undoubtedly be insti
tuted in the near future, may oool the
enthusiasm of the squatters.

•-f* Graduates and Visitors.
The day was eooi, the ladtee at their
sweetest and the gentlemen eh valroti®
as the great crowd met in the opera
bouse to witness the graduating exer
ciaea of the State Normal School class of
1894. Thirteen young ladies and five
gentlemen constitute the division of the
olass which now goes forth, eigh* others
having graduated at the Mid winter
The stage was tastily decorated wivh
laoe hangings in the rear and pot flowers
in front and overhead stretched the class
motto: "No Crown Without the Dust
of Labor," in large letters in the class
colore of purple and yellow. "Old Glory"
clung to the wing of the stage. On the
platform were the faculty, state regents
and the board ot trustees, Superintend
ent McCleuon of Madison and Superin
tendent Howe of Sioux Falls.
The Lake City orchestra aat front
of the stage and opened the exercieee
with an overture of Scotch airs, happily
Rev. J. Y. Ewart offered the invoca
tion and the orchestra followed with the
concert watyz, "Daughters of Love.H
Lydia Huecker, the first speaker of
the class, took as the subject of her ora
tion, "Success," and delivered it in a
clear, self-possessed tone. Personal in
dustry was the keynote of her address.
Isabella F. Hutchinson treated of the
heroic in American history in choice se
lection of characters, language and elo
"The Power of Sincerity" was studi
kmely analyzed by Lola A. Jenks in clear
and calm diction, being well received.
Geo. Eliot's novel, "The Mill of the
Floss,*'turnisbed a subject of dissection
for Emma E. Ludwig who set out the
leading characters of the book in clear
thought, easy style and earnest feeling
in her theme.
"The Influence of Environments," by
A.ary E. Msrquart, was a deep subject
well handled, in a clear voioe, good
language and an admirable aelf-possee
With a rather light voioe, but tnos*
deliberate manner, Rose Matthieaen un
raveled the eecret of "Meeting the Op
portunity." Preparation is the neces
sary condition.
An operatic medley or potpourri, by
the Lake City orchestra next relieved
the tension of the audience, followed by
Blanche McCallister in an oration on,
*4Over Taught and Under Educated."
Culture the end of education. Too
many trainers in special lines, too little
well balanced education. The speaker's
delivery waa very good.
Lily S. Monty's subject, "Walt Whit
man," the man, the poet, was an ardent
defense of the claims of that peculiar
genius to recognition, delivered in win
ning speech in the face of a squalling
"One View of the Labor Problem" was
a practical subject for an oration and was
bandied by J. V. Murphy in a dignified
way. He found the love of money the
bone of contention, and selfishness on
both sides inciting strife between the
classes. Mr. Murphy haa a deep rich
voice, and is a natural lorn orator if he
only knew ifc.
M. A. Murphy talked of the poet,
"John Boyle O'Reily, and talked well
too, picturing hia virtues in close an
alysis, smooth phraseo'ogy and clear
The "Uses' of Poverty,w afforded
Emma M. Orton a llietne from which to
draw some very encouraging lessons,
pleasantly stated showing close study.

ished incident for som# choice thoughts

which Jane E. Quigg weaved into an in
spiring story in beautiful composition,
delivered in very effective and graceful
The audience was again relieved by
the entrancing strains of the orchestra
in a concert Polks, "Soundaof St. John."
Stella A. Regan's choice of a subject
was "The American Flag" treated with
all the patriotism and feeling such a
subject naturally inspires in a young
American. "Amertoa for Americans,
and only one flag."
Gus Whalen foan* J# "Prometheus
Bound," ,a symbolic parallel for the
struggle of manhood in all ages, the
struggle of intelligence and liberty
against ignorance, superstition and
slavery. Mr. Whales is an easy speaker,
has a rioh votoe, and had a finished pro
Egypt Mesopotamia, Palestine, and
other natural divisions, all furnished
to Delia M. Regan, mstanoes of where
physical causes controlled the historical
development of peoples, and elaborated
in a plain, conversational style.
Edmund Wachtinaqn dealt with the
deep subject, "Ethical Ideas." A man's
ideals determine his character and
should be pure and high. Otherwise
the^ will be widely injurious.
"A Nation's Hope" was made the
theme of & practical oration by J. Ernest
Wilson. Where did this hope lief
Ia the vicious element? Certainly not.
In the church? Partly. In the hom^?
Yes. In a healthy school education. Mr.
Wilson is clear thinker %nd a good

Il®«dle introduced President Shannon
®f the state board of regents who pre
sented the diplomas to the members of
the grsdufttiug class in a few pointed
remarks touching the growth of educa
tional interests in the northwest and
his own bumble experience in relation
to it. He commended the class on its
preparation and opportunities and told
"tfflwai to go forth in faith and courage.
He brought also the warmest regards of
Gov. Sheldon who could not be present.
The exercises closed with the benedic
tion by Rev. A. C. Blackman.
But the exercises at the opera house
were not ail of this Tenth Com
mencement of the Madison Normal
school. The tenth anniversary in
schools nnd colleges is always an occa
sion of special rejoicing as is also the
twenty-fifth, the fiftieth and the one
hundreth anniversary. So in this case
the faculty and alumni hau made special
preparation to entertain their friends
and guests in substantial manner, and
150 of them were taken aboard the
motor cars and transported to Lake
Madiaon where the spacious dinning
hall of the Grand View, an elegant spread
of the choioest edibles was partaken of
amid much social enjoyment. The ser
vice was exoellent, tbs time ample and
full justice was done to the feast of good
After the feast, then the flow of soul.
By initiation of President Beadle, Presi
dent Shanuon presided in happy vein
and many were the humorous hits made
by himself and the speakers called upon,
but throughout all a sober strain would
well up expressive olgratitude and satis
faction at the good work being done by
the school, by its graduates, at the trials
past and victories won, the happy asso
ciations formed and influences for good
carried away. The speakers responding
to calls were, Supt. Rowe, of Sioux Falls
Rev. J. P. Jinkenp, Frank Fuller, Rev.
W. J. Cleveland, Hon C. McCallister,
Hon. S. E. Wilson, of Hot Springs, Gen.
Beadle and others.
The joyous company returns to the
oily this evening and oontinaes the
social amenities of the ccoasioci at the
President's levee.

TH* LEADER received a pleasant call
from Mr. C. C. Wilson, Saturday, the ad
vance agent of the Mammoth Forepmigh
circus. Mr. Wilson says the show this
year is grander, larger and on a more
magnificent scale than ever, and has
more foreign features this year than ever
before seen in this conutry. It is the
enly show in the world that has a horse
that walks a tight rope, a baby elephant
36 inches high, a horse that talks, and a
complete menagerie of rare and foreign
animals. The band of trained elephants
a wouderous innovation, performed by
the king of animal trainers, Adam Fore
paugh. It is the only show in the world
that has a complete Roman Hippodrome,
and has a genera! representation of the
sports and pastimes of the wild west.
The artists have been selected from the
royal circus companies of the world,
forming an aggregation that is unsur
passed. Look out for the grand parade
on IbtMBorning of June 14.

PHILADELPHIA, June 6.—The United

the Delaware river from Cramp's ship
yard in a driving storm at 10 a. m. on
her preliminary or builder'* trial trip.
After having her compasses adjusted
the Minneapolis will pass out the Dela

long run up and down the coast. The
principal object of the present trial is
to find out just what the ship ia capable
of accomplishing, and she will be put
through all sorts of evolutions. On
Thursday she will be put to further
tests at tea, and probably a limited
speed trial over the u ne-knot course,
between the northwest and southeast
