J. V. STAHL, Proprietor. A Pierre correspondent sizing up the political situation in South Dakota, after referring to .Major Piekler'a canvaaa of the state and (TOV. Sheldon's still hunt for the senatorehip, save: Besides the following of these two men, there is a large faction of the party which will now pledge support to neither. When that strength crystallizes, it will undoubtedly have much to say as to who will be the next senator. Some politicians even go far enough as to say that it will be strong enough.to absolutely name the man. Many of the leading politicians refuse absolutely to express even an opinion as to who vill be the successor of Kyle. The only point on which they are agreed is that the successor, whoever henuiy be, will be a republican, as they are determined to redeem the state from populism. The names which have so far been mentioned as jKjssible candidates include Judge Campbell, of Brown Hon. Thomas Sterling, of Spink Hon. Robert Gamble, of Yankton, and Hon. Win. G. Rice, of Lawrence. Of these, Gamble is in the same portion of the 6tate from which Senator Pettigrew comes, and lie would, if in the tield, tind that fact a serious handicap. While the lilack Hills section will undoubtedly claim a place, cither on the congressional ticket, or, failing in that, the senatorial, they will be met with the assertion that with the state treasurer, which will, without question, be Treasurer Phillips again, they have a roportionate representation on the state ticket, compared to tlie per centage of the total republican vote in the state. About the o^ly other office receiving general atteution is that of governor. WThile this will be hotly contested, it is as yet conceded that the two strongest candidates are A. O. Ringsrud, of Union, and Chas. N. Horned, of AlcPherson. Besides these two, there are also men tioned ex-Congressman Lucas, O. S. Gilford and N. E. Phillips. The other state officers are as yet attracting but little discussion, and it is conceded that the present treasurer, land commissioner and superintendent of public instruction will all be reinstated. Some of our pop contemporaries are reu^rking joyously that a large per centage of the commissioners elected in counties this fall are pops and that this is au indication of increasing populist strength. Well, it is nothing of the kind! The\ have not elected pops in all the districts they had before by a good deal and gained only where republicans were too indiffer ent to put up candidates. But one thjug, the result of the partial elections do indicate and that is that the average pop ever and always is on the scramble for an office. No matter how insignifi cant it is a big plum fot him and is the extent and ultimate goal of his politics. Huronite, 15: There are about 200,0'JO acres of land subject to entry within the Huron land district under the provis ions of the homestead laws of the gen eral government, Much of this land is near railway stations and good market towns, and suitable (or agricultural pur poses and stock raising. During the mouth ot October U3D410 acres of land were acquired by settlers in this district. Of this 2,050.4b acres were covered by 20 homestead entries 610 acre* by four Sioux iLdian land homestead entries 3,478/JU acres by 22 tinal timber culture entries 3,19y.G3 acres by 20 tinal home stead entries. Clark county will probably present the Dame of Hon. Carl Sherwood to the next state convention as a delegate to the national convention. Carl is properly qualified to represent the state in any oapacity, but souie of our contemporaries oall him down as being an out and out gold bug. The Huronite appears to have a monopoly of advertising the Dakota Agricultural college Why should not a little of that patronage be given to the Brookings papers, other papers probably do not care for it. Senator Pettigrew and his brother, F. Wl Pettigrew, and Delos P. Beech have filed articles of incorporation for a mill ing company at Baltic, Minnehha oounty. They will construct a mill the capital •tock is $25,000. The bank clearances of Sioux Falls last week showed $131,720 as against f75.019 for the corresponding week a year ago. Evidently a great revival in business. Judging from the Huronote, there is not a dry goods store, elbthing store, grocery store, millinery store, real estate dealer, lawyer or doctor or dentist in Huron. There is one hotel, F. H. Kent,proprietor and Chas. E. Bryant advertising several empty storerooms •ad office rooms for veal. Time was when Huron WM one of the brightest towns in the state. But from the ap peeranoe of the Huronite it is dead and gone. Peace to its ashes. N0BTHWEST NEWS KERNEL3. Si* incendiary fires occurred at Hur ley, Wis., in one day.

BUSINESS CONTINUES IRREGULAR BradtrMti' Report of the Condition of General Trade. NEW YOKK, Nov. LY.—Bradstreete says: The condition of general trade continues irregular and without change. There is a distinct falling off in demand for iron and steel with perhaps the heaviest reaction in the quotations in those lines reported in any week since the late loom in those metals reached the climax. Central Western cities continue to feel the unfavorable influ ence of unseasonably mild weather which is true as well of cities at the Northwest. Then there is a long list of decreases in quotations for merchan dise, wheat, corn, oats, pork, lard and coffee among food products cotton and print cloths and lumber, as well as various grades of iron and steel, copper, lead and weaker quotations for tin plates. The converse includes an unexpected improvement in woollen goods, increased order for manufac tures and higher prices for several qualities of goods. There were 2).) business failures re ported throughout the United States this week, compared with 200 last week, 2"SO in the week one year ago, 370 in the week two years ago, and as contrasted with only 205 in the corresponding week of 181)2.

Joseph Cliariberlain Asks British Uuianans What They Will Do In Case It Should Come to Show-Down in the Venez uelan Matter. The Colonial Council Is Expected to Reassure the Colonial Secretary. "WASHINGTON, NOV. 18.—Information reaching here from Denierara, British (iuina, is to the effect that further dis patch s of a very pointed character have been received from Joseph Chamberlain. British minister for the colonies, con cerning Yelie/.uela. Their contents were not disclosed, lmt a meeting of the high council of the colony was called, at which it was believed the subject was fully discussed. The information which was contained in the Demarara papers up to Nov. 1, was transmitted to the state department. The report in circu lation at Denierara and generally cred ited, is that Minister Chamberlain has forwarded dispatches to the British Guiana government, in which he in quires, whether fr not, in the event of measures between that colony and Venezuela ljeing pushed to extremes the colonial government is prepared t^ do its utmost in an endeavor to sustain the prestige of the British flag,to which it owes allegiance. Meed Ite No Doubt About It. Commenting on these dispatches, the press of Denierara says there need be no hesitation in giving an affirmative an swer to Minister Chamlerlain. Why such inquiry should come from London excites conjecture, and the feeling i that it may be due to irritation because the high council voted down Mr. Cham berlain's proposition to buy Maxim guns, ammunition, etc. In that event, the next meeting of the high council is expected to show a purpose to support Mr. Chamberlain "to the utmost, in au endeavor to sustain the prestige of the British flag," which is the language of Mr. Chamlterlain's inquiry, according to the accepted reports at Denierara, German Counsel Favor* England. Interviews were had with all the for eign consuls in British Guiana, con cerning the Venezuelan question. The French consul, Mr. Clark, and the Dutch consul, Mr. De Jonge, refused to commit themselves in their official ca pacities. The German consul, Mr Weber, was very outspoken against the United States and in" favor of the Brit ish position. England, he says, should insist on a final settlement on the lines it has laid down. Mr. Weber thinks the idea of an effective interference by the Americans absurd. Be 1'uand a Mammoth Care. PALMYRA, Wis., Nov. 18.—What may have been an effect of the recent earth quake was discovered by Elmer Piper while digging a well. At a depth of 45 feet he struck a rocky streak that sud denly yielded to his pick, precipitating him into what seemed a vast, rocky dry river bed or empty gas chamber, extend ing into all directions, farther than the boldest dare penetrate. Viper curbed the four feet space and went on with his digging. Anent the PApe'i Health. CLF.VEI.AND, Nov. 18.—Rev. Joseph M. Koudetka of this city has just re turned from a visit to lionie. In re gard to the ope's health he said: "I was shocked to find how ho is broken in health. He had to be carried into th« room in a chair, for he could not walk and his form and face are much emaci at-cui ing Will It is A card on the outside of of »fice door says: Gone to lunch Be back in ten minutes." And, the man will be there on time. That is, for some 'days, weeks or even months, he will. Then he will be at home occasionally for a day. He'll tell you he had a headache—a turn of chol era morbus, or maybe he'll he had a lump in his stomach and too miserable to move. The lump was probably two or three ten-minute lunches condensed. sr. The man who bolts his lunches will £nd Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets the best friend he ever met. There is no case of biliousness, con stipation, indigestion, "heart-burn," or any of the rest of the nijjht-mare breed brood, that these little "Pellets" not cure. They cure permanently.
