The repubiican party or the state of South Dakota, IU couvea'ion »«»emh!ed, declares anew its allegiance to tbo*e great principles for which republicanism has stood ever since its formal organization, and which have been from time to time declared in its platforms. •i. In the interest of the country at large and particularly in the interest of the people of this great agricultural northwest, it affirms its con viction that this nation owes to its own citizens and their industries all reasonable protection against competition with foreign labor: and it believe* that this can be b^st aba most certainly afforded by ihe friends of protection, rather than bf those who declare, as aid the last democratic national convention, that protection is unconsti tutional aud fraudulent, and which declaration his* smitten this whole country with a blight that has withered its manufacturing Industries, shriveled ILK commerce, and dried np the foun tain of its finances. 8. The policy of a democratic congress, which evies upon this conntry the tribute of millions in behalf of the sugar trust, and robs this conntry's wool growers of millions in bebalt of Australian flock owner', has been fitly character ised by a democratic president as perfidy arid dis honor, and we declare our preference for that reciprocity policy of the republUai party, which got something lor the country at large in ex tihantre for whatever advantage was accorded foreign nations and their commercial interests. 4. Kepublicanism had its b!rh as a movement o emancipate America from the curse of slave abor, and its profound concern ever since has been and is now ihe promotion of whatever would guarantee to labor its due share in the product to which it has contributed, as well as to guarantee to capital such inducements as would DSpire its i live* tors with confidence.

To gratify a personal whim he orders out the state militia, commanding the gat liog guns to be trained on the city hall, nrging neighbors to shoot and kill each other, and when he finds that neighbors are not anxious for bloodshed and are not willing to shoot, he, the populist governor, orders out the United States army! Gen. McCook had to inform him that he was not taking his orders from Denver, so the tiasco ended for that day. The pages of the past two years are full of just«such 'fool business', in fact no foolish thing possible for an administra tion to do has been left undone. While we know that there are some scum and dregs in every human organization, and, of course, in our political parties, yet we never found a party that was emphat ically all scum until we struck this pop ulist crowd. The experience of our state (and of Kansas also) is that there can be no expectation of an ordinary clean government at their hands. Either of the old parties, with all their defects, are an infinitely safer way oat of our difficulties than a pontoon made up of the slums of both the old parties with a few visionaries and disappointed office seekers.

These two years of suf fering at their hands have been titled with devilish perversity anu misman agement. The sum total of all the evils of our government for the seventeen previous years is but a small budget as compared with those of our two years of populist rule. Under their hands disor der, turbulence, contentions, tightsv and riots, reached every corner and place in our state government, and in every case this state of disorder has been of the monkey and parrot' style among their own flock. Of course you know what kind of a time they had. Our executive has been unceasing in bis efforts to teach disregard for law and HOCK, Ark., Get. day's cyclone grows in destructiveness as the details are gathered, and the stun total of the damage wrought by the wreck is yet untold. The day had been hot and sultry and its culmination was the storm, which wrecked business houses, filled the streets with debris and wreckage, killed a number of people and seriously injured many others. Dark, omfeious clouds had been gather ing from tl*? west and southwest, yet the city was all unprepared for the dire visitation that followed in their wake. The first intimation of the impending storm was when the cyclone struck. All electric lights were extinguished and the darkened streets Were Filled With Flying Roofe, walls and debris of all kinds. It swept from the southwest, striking the city near the insane asylum, the male ward of which was demolished. There Dr. Ingate was killed and several inmates seriously injured. It then passed on to the penitentiary, doing but slight dam age at intermediate points. The second and third stories of the shop building were blown off, the cell building un roofed, the office destroyed and the old building scattered broadcast. A con vict was killed and several guards in jured. The terrible work continued toward the main part of the city and its path was strewn with debris of wrecked buildings, tangled telegraph and telephone wires and fallen trees that had withstood The TsispsiU mt Mmmr now experi ence, and at our next election this whole crowd of populists are going to be snowed under so deep that they wiil not even dream of the resurrection." Aristocratic 'Indians. The lodges of the Crows show their prosperity. They are larger ami better than those of the plains tribes, and a few are left of the old fashioned skiiwiade kind, which are almost as warn-as log houses. The finer Crow lodges are really luxuri ous. Some of tliem are 20 or 25 feet i in diameter and very high in propor tion. With an inner lining of some bright figured cloth, good bedding, rugs and sometimes carpeted almost to the firehole, with a profusion of fine woven bags from the Flatheada, elk.-kin furs and utensils richly orna mented, these lodges are comfortable in the extreme and are tamally kept very clean. Many residences were more or less aged, roofs blown away and walls partly demolished. The next marked damage was when the storm struck the Martin building at the corner of Spring and Second streets. This was a large 3-story brick office and apartment house occupied by The Arkansas Meth odist and several lawyers offices. Gov ernor Fishback and General Armisted have rooms in this building, but they escaped injury. The colored porter was seriously injured. From that point east, the scene that met the view of the vast throngs of people who thronged to the scene in the morning was beyond description. Some of the most substan tial brick structures of the dktrict lying along Main and Markham street*, toutli to Fourth and Fifth W*s Baaed to the Groasd, The wind was followed by a drench ing tempest of rain that lasted tot nearly an hour and kept nearly every one within doors, so that the real ex tent of the damage could not be ascer tained at the time. Telephone wires in the busines portion were all blown down and communication by that means was impossible. All kinds of wild rumors of death and destruction were rife, but fortunately many of them were unfounded. It is a matter of comment and wonder that hundreds were not killed for no storm in the history of the conntry surpassed it in destructive pow ers. The rumors of widespread fatali ties caused intense solicitude for busi ness men, who were in the city but could not be reached by telephone. Street oar traffic V| Waa Entirely WrtifMiljHl1 and the only way to reach their homes was to walk. The police were on the scene promptly, with an increased force, and everything was dome to restrain the disorderly element from creating a dis turbance. The saloons, car those that were not entirely destroyed, were or dered closed at midnight by Chief Mc Mahon. The patrol wagon was pressed into service, and many of the injured were taken to headquarters, where their wounds were attended to. The storm proper did not last more than three minutes. The wires operating the fire alarm system were all blown down and there was constant fear of fire, but fortunately none occurred.

I see that the news associations have been authorized by the Prince of Wales to deny that the Duke of York was mar ried previous to his union with Princess May of Teek. The Prince of Wales was quite right to make the denial the morning newspapers were quite right to^ publish it Permit me to quoto the prince's statement, which was issued by iiis private secretary, Colonel Sir Fran cis Knollys. Then I wish to add a rider LONION, Aug. 15.—A letter signed by Sir Francis Knollys, K. C.M. G., one of thegTonnia in waiting upon the Prince of Wales, is pub lished today, saying that the Prince of Wales directs him to say that there is not a pharto\v4 of foundation for the report that the Duke of York was married previous to his union wit Princess May of Teck. The letter adds that the report of a previous marriage was obviously invented to cause pain and annoyance to the young couple. There is more than a "shadow of proof" for the duke's marriage—there is the record in the English ohArch in Malta. The marriage took place four years ago, when Prince George was with the Mediterranean squadron. At thatrs time his elder brother was living and was heir to the throne. There w ml1 never have been a question of the ity of the marriage had not "Collars mi ll Cuffs" died. His death made the Duke of York—Prince George, as he was then —heir to the dignities of his grand mother. His marriage to a commoner was out of the question. Now, mail: the odd course of events. The Duke oC Clarence—-"Collars and Cuffs"—had been betrothed for nine months to the" Princess May of Teck. When he died suddenly, his brother, Prince George, was ordered to keep the engagement In spite of all his resistance he was mar ried to his brother's fiancee. His own wife—his morganatic wife, if you please* —forced her way into the church on the wedding day and created a scandal which was only half suppressed. She was his wife, the mother of his two children. Had he not been forced by citcuinstances into the direct succession to the throne there would have been no question of the legality of that marriagtj ceremony performed by the English chaplain at Malta. But the woman was repudiated.. She was a Miss Try on and the nieco of one of England's famous sailors—a man under whom the "sailor prince," this charming Duke of York, had learn ed his seamanship. When Admiral Try on learned of the shame cast upon his name, he was half mad. The drink took did not mollify him. The one thin he could do was to kill himself, and hi committed suicide by sinking the finest man-of-war in the English navy. Hd drowned hundreds of men, sank a mil lion pound ironclad and went down laughing drunk on the bridge. The Prince of Wales denies? Not even the Prince of Wales can bury that scandal. The Duke of York's morganatie wife has been pensioned. She is living at Richmond with her two children. In the latter part of .Tune she obeyed arden and married a poor gentleman whom the Prince of Wales provided- Now, that everything has been "covered"-— in these days when the Duke of York is rejoicing over a son and heir to the throne-—the cry is raised that the "sail or prince" has been slandered.

Overton in command, was en gaged for the day. When about three miles at sea, the fish began to bite. One of the party felt something tugging on the end of his line and gave a suddeu pull. As a result he was nearly pulled overboard. He called for help. The captain, crew and his companions went to his aid and helped haul in the line. When they had brought the monster to the surface, he was found to 'be al most exhausted. A rope was fastened around him, and the fishermen started for home in triumph, pulling th© shark astern. A landing was made at Curtis' bathing pavilion, and the story of the unusual capture spread like wildfire. The shark, which was dead bythia lime, WM dragged ashore.
