J. V STAliL, Proprietor. The Sioux Frtlla Journal ID reviewing some of the important cases which will oome up in Minnehaha term of circuit court opening Ht Sionx Falls to-morrow, Judge Smith of Yunktou presiding, says of a Lake county case: "The case of Kockford vs. Lak^ county will no doubt be watched with much intertat by the state at large. This suit involves the title to the liank of South Dakota, in Madison. The plaintiff alleges title under a foreclosure of mortgage in the early days of that thriving town. Lake couuty claims a lien of $2,400 personal taxeu assessed against the stockholder of the busted bank and H00 tuxes on real estate. Section H3, chapter 14, of the laws of lb'Jl, provdes that a tax receipt issued |by a county treasurer is con clusive evidence of the payment of till former taxes. It is said that the plain tiff in this case quietly walked up to the couuty treasurer's olHce of Lake county and with an unsophisticated smile in quired the amount o' taxes due for lyiM on the property in controversy. Being enlighteued on the question lie tendered the money and took the usual receipt, lie now claims under the section of law referred to that the county is precluded from claiming any prior tax. If bis con tentions are correct, county treasurers will£have to exercise more care in future than has been evidenced in the past/' Mitchell Kepublicau: Friday night Frank Trudell returned home on the Omahte from Sioux Falls where he has been confined in the peniteutiary for over three years. He looks and acts much the same as he did before he left Mitchell and lie seemed mighty glad to get buck again, liia pardon was received at the penitentiary Friday uoon by War den Phillips, who sent a guard out into the stone quarry to inform Frauk of his good fortune. When the guard ap proached and asked Frank if he would like to go home, the boy sai3 "yes" and dropped his tools and started for the warden's ottice. The document was read to him, the uecessary formalities were quickly gone through with and Frank was legally declared a free man. He was given sutlicient money to buy a good suit of clothes and pay his railroad fare u Mitchell. Frauk said he bad for his cellmate no less a personage than W. W. Taylor aud as Taylor lives a little bit higher thau the other convicts he always divided with Frank and just before he left thev prison Taylor presented him with $2. Frank says now that he is free he intends to settle down aud make a man of himself and thiuks he will return to Sioux Falls to work in a stone quarry where he was tiered a position before returning here. Watertowu Public Opiuion, 15: "Jutnes Dempsey lieddington, the sen tenet* of the court upon your plea of guilty to the crime of manslaughter iu the tirst degree is that you be sentenced to imprisonment in the penitentiary of the slate of South Dakota, situated at the city of Sioux Fails, in South Dakota, for the period or term of niue years with A credit of the time which you ha\e bee a in jail." Such were the words used by Judge Andrews in pronouncing the seDtenoe upon the man who killed Jerry Kelley. Redding ton neurly broke down when the sentence was pronouueed, and amid bis sobs exclaimed, "Send me to the grave, Judge I had rather you /would •end me to the grave thau back to Sioux Falls.' Keddingtou bad on tirst trial been found guilty of murder in the tirst de gree and given a life sentence, but on up peal to the supreme court on u technicality, he obtained a new trial and pleaded guilty to the charge of man slaughter, under which plea he was sen tenced as above.

(Cot .a PintrDfr on the Fated Kleetrte Car Escaped Death. CLEVEI.AND, NOV. VJ.—The people of this city are appalled by the horror of the terrible accident which occurred Saturday evening on the big Central viaduct. It ww the worst accident that had ever happened iu this city, and the •tory of how the motor car loaded with men, women and childreu had plunged through an open draw,straight down 100 feet into the river,was told over and over •gain. The flrst reports of the disaster have been verified in every particular, with the possible exception of the num ber of victims, which is a trifle smaller than wa« at first supposed. The work of rescuing the bodies of the victims has gone on steadily and so far 15 have been found, with four persons still re ported missing. The identified dead are: James McLaughlin, baseball player. Henry W. Mecklenburg, mer chant tailor Edward Hoffman, conduc tor Mrs John A. Sauerheimer, Miss Bessie Davis, school teacher Harry W. Foster. Mrs. Minnie C. Brown, Curt Lepehne, Harvry Hoffman, Mrs. Mar tha Palmer, Marie Mitchen, Augusta Sarinski. Gertie Hoffman, Louis Huletz. The Conductor to Illume. First reports from the scene of the disaster seemed to place the blame tin the conductor. They were that the ill fated motor car, containing between "^0 and 30 people, approached the draw just as a vessel was nearing it, and the bridge attendants had closed the big iron gates and were preparing to swing the draw. As is the rule, the car stopped and the conductor went for ward to release the switch in case the way was clear. He must have been blinded by the electric lights, for an eye witness declares that although the gates were closed and the draw was already in motion, the conductor raised the switch handle. The motorman applied the current and the car shot forward and struck the gates with a crash. There was only a moment's pause aud then the heavy car ground its way through the wreckage and Plunged Over the Brink into the black abyss, amid the screams and frantic struggles of the passengers, who at the first intimation of danger rushed to the rear door. The car struck the water with a great splash and then there was silence. Soon men began to rush shouting about, and police patrol wagons and ambulances were soon fly ing to the spot in response to telephone calls. In an incredibly short space of time the work of rescue had begun. As the car went over the brink of the abyss the motorman jumped from the vesti buled front. All the other occupants of the car, with the exception of the few who had managed to jump as it toppled over, went down to certain death. The car disappeared from eight as soon as it struck the water and all on board were drowned. August Rogers, the motorman, who has been held as a witness, has been charged with manslaughter. This ac tion was taken by Chief of Police Hoehn after he had investigated the accident. 8TILL WANT TO BE ANNEXED Minister Hatch of Hawaii Wilt Press the Matter on Favorable Opportunity. PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., Nov. 19 According to advices received from Honolulu by the bark C. D. Bryant, sentiment is being cultivated to grant Princess Kaiaulani, heir apparent to the throne, a pension of $15,000 a year. Many of the legislators have expressed themselves favorable to the proposition. A few day's previous to the departure of Minister Hatch for Washington, the cabinet convened in lengthy session and discussed the possibilities of Hawaii be coming a part of the United States. One prominent officer stated that Hatch was instructed to proceed on lines tend ing to closely cement the two countries until the American administration changed and then to insist on speedy admission of Hawaii as a territory.

As a starter 400 head of young cattle will be placed on the ranch. The recent rains and snows have benefitted stockmen to a wonder ful degree, and stock interests are iu the best of condition. The Poet'a Reward. It is amusing to know how small were the pecuniary rewards of Bryant's literary labors. Two dollars a poem was the price that he named, and he seemed to be abundantly satisfied with the terms. A gentleman met him in New York many years after and said to him, "I have just bought the earliest edition of your poems and gave $20 for it." "More, by a lo?ig phot," replied the poet, "than I received for writing the whole work. "—Chicago Chronicle. Kindly Fruit*. The expression in the prayer book, "Kindly fruits of the earth," has for most persons no definito meaning on ac count of the difference in significance now attached to the word kindly from that used when the expression was first written. The word kindly in that con nection meant as nearly as possible "of its kind," and tho expression "kindly fruits of the earth" uieant "the fruits of the earth each after its kind." a Reading. Never burden your mind with more than one thing at a time, and in read ing this book do not run over it super ficially, but read every passage twice over at least. Do not pass on to a second till you thoroughly understand the first, nor quit the book till you are master of the subject, for, unless you do this, you may read it through and not remember the contents of it for a week —Lord Chesterfield. Mia Preaerver. fire many varying There are many varying ideas of what gratitude is and in what way it should find expression. It is reported that a soldier in tho civil war—it mat ters not whether ho was of tho north or the south—meeting his former com mander, expressed gratitudo to him. "Don't you know me?" he asked eagerly. "No, my friend," said the former officer. "Why, sir, you once saved my life!" exclaimed the other. "Ah, hew was that?"
