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
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
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.

acres of land subject to entry within the

BUSINESS CONTINUES IRREGULAR
Report of the Condition of
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,

CHICAGO, NOV. 18.—Judge Gibbons of
the superior court has decided that the
law passed at the lost session of the
Illinois legislature, compelling barbers
in this state to close their shops on Sun
day is unconstitutional, because it is
class legislation and directed against the
property of barbers, which is muscle and
professional skill. The case being sim
ply decided on the question of the ar
rast of the men by the police, must be
brought up in different form if the ad
advocates of the law decide to appeal to
the supreme court.

"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.

PALMYRA, Wis., Nov. 18.—What may
