The republicans of South Dakota, in convention represented, affirm their full faith in and alliegance to the declaration of principles adopted by the national republican convention at St. Louis in its entirety, constituting a platform of a great and progressive party, proud of its past record and achievements, courage ous in its championship of the right and unfaltering in the maintenance of its po» litical tenets. 2. We recognise in William McKin ley, our candidate for president, and Garret A. llobart, the nominee for vice president, two typical Americans, tried in the public service and found able and true, pure in their lives, untarnished io their honor and close to the people io their experiences and B}mpathies, and we pledge to them our most hearty and willing effort and snppoft, with the full vote of South Dakota the electoral college. With such a platform and in vincible leader we enter the contest with the inspiration of a sure prophecy of victory at the polls in November next 3. We commend the present republt* can administration of governmental af fairs of this state as honest and econom ical, and especially commend its steady purpose and effort in exposing and bringing to speedy punishment a former defaulting state treasurer, and recover- ing back for the state so large a porpor- Madison tion of the stolen funds and we demand a passage of an act by our legislature bro viding adequate punishment for defalca tions o! public officers. 4 The republican party having al ways been the friend of labor and labor ing men, deplores the frequent strikes aud conflicts between employers and employed, resulting at times in the de struction of life and property and great ii jury to thoss immediately concerned and the public generally, and favors the settlement of ail questions of dispute arising between labor aud capital by le gally constituted arbitrat on by which al1 parties interested shall be bound. 5. We believe the transportation cor porations of this state are the people's public servants we oppose any and all harsh or unjust legislation ooncerning them, but we do demand suoh legislation as will clothe the board of railway com missioners of this state with fuli power and authority to correct evils, right wrongs, »nd in general to prevent all un just discriminations, and to provide a reasonable maximum tariff of passenger and freight rates. We recommend that eaohcqupty con vention of this state, for the nomination of members for the legislature, take such action as will requ.re all candidates upon the legislative ticket to commit hetneelves upon the Jqueet ontMegisla tion to carry out the meaning and pur pose of this resolution. G. We view with apprebeneion the growth of corporate power in this coun try, aud especially are we opposed to trusts and combines which during re cent years have steadily multiplied, seek ing by unjust, and illegal means to etitie competition, and thereby, wliile fettering the producer, to extort extravagant prices from the coneumer. We pledge the party and its nominees for congress and the senate to use a'l efforts toward their destruction. 7. Whereas, complaints are made by the people concerning the management of the" grain elevators within the state Therefore, we demand that the coming legislature make a thorough investiga tion into the details of sueh manage ment wiihin this state, and by proper legislation provide adequate remedies for the evil that may be found to exist. 8. We invite every voter who ii a lov er of good 'government and who desires the return of prosperous and good times to join with us in the elect'on of the re publican ticket in county, state and na tion. In addition to the platform as above quoted, the convention adopted also the followjog resolutions: Resolved, That since the assembling of the last republican convention of South Dakota the Supreme Ruler of the uni verse has removed from the active scene# of earth our honored ex-governor, Ar thur C. Mellette and that in his death his family has been deprived of a devot ed hnsband and father, our state which he so faithfully served a public benefao or, the republican party of our state a champion of masterful ability, fidelity and courage, and the nation one of th§ noblest works of God—an honest man. Resolved, That in bolting the St. Louis convention Senator Pettigrew has ceased to be in touch with the republican par ty of this state, and that he has forfeit ed its political respect aud esteem.

The Case Reads Like a fliracle. From the Lakenide Monitor, Au Sable, Mich. The publisher of this paper having some business to transact at Prewot, Ogemaw Co., Michigan, Monday last, repaired to that ham let. While there he chanced to learn of a remarkable recovery from an illnessof thirty four years standing, the fortunate person being Thomas F. (Jalvin. The writer hunted that gentleman up, introduced himself, and requested Mr. Ualvin to give a brief hiHtory of hia terrible disease and some history of himself. Mr. Galvin'a trouble culminated three or four years 6ince in three diseases— Rheumatism, affect ins? the general system locomotor ataxia, affecting the legs, render ing him unable to direct his coarse in walk ing, and paralysis, rendering him unable to use lips, throat or palate. In giving a history of his trouble, Mr. Gal vin said: In 1861 I enlisted in the army and was made captain of Co. H., 40th Illinois In fantry. I was stationed at Paducah, Ky.: in September of that year and nhile there caught cold and contracted rheumatism. I was in the hospital th«re three month* when I recovered sufficiently to report for duty, although far from well. Previous to this time I had never been sick a day in my life aud weighed 195 pounds. I continued in the service during tne war, although 6u!lerin!» all the time from rheumatism. At the closc of the war, I was diseliarged and a few months afterwards granted a pension of -r for my disabilities. I was never from for thirty-three long years un til late last fall or early in the winter. I continued to crow worse all the time during the ertire period until last November. I was then in a pitable condition. I had been stricken with paralysis and locomotor ataxia in addition to my rheumatism. For three years I was helpless. I could not talk because of paralysis, 1 could not walk because of the locomotor ataxia, and my hands, arms and legs were all out of shape, withered and drawn, from rheumatism. You see my knees now. Just as limber as yours. Last snmraer I could not move my knees, nor could I get th^ra together within six indies. You see ray fingers, straight and nearly re covered from their HtiiFness. At flint tini", if I attempted to walk, I w is as liable to gi backwards or sideways or fall down as I was to go forwards, because of the lack of power of locomotion. My (iod, how I prayed for years to die and be relieved of my sufferings. Had it not been that our Government saw fit to increase my pension from fy to .St7 per month and pay me $3,140 back pension, i should have suffered for the necessities of life. Before this time I had treat?! with the best medical men of detroit, Cleveland, Mil waukee, Chicago and several other northern eities. but, as 1 said, grew gradually worse until I would not have given $1 for my chances of life last Nfovemier, and, in fuct, would rather have been dead than alive. I only weighed 132 pounds. You see mo to day. I weigh 175 and am free from pain en tirely, am slowly but surely gainingstrengtii. You see I get up stairs all right, and I come up these stairs a down times a day now. You Would not discover that I was ever unable to speak. I shall go to work with my tools gs a carpenter soon, so as to help me increase In strength. I was so long unable to take a step that I do not feel hardly safe 011 'my pins yet. although I have not fallen down in several months. I am learning the use of my legs, hands, arms and tongue again. I guess you will think I have recovered the «w of the latter if 1 keep on, bat I want to The Inter Ocean ANNALS practice up again and make up for lost time and tell every one of my now nappy lot. "I want to say now that for ten years pre vious to last November, 1 had oeen able to perform but little lalor, and was totally dis abled for nearly three years. My God! I was in an awful shape. Mr. Anthony Stone's folks here, with whom I boarded! will tell you that they did not expect to finft me alive any morning when they came t# wake me, for over two years. But here I ait yet. and can walk six or seven miles an^ pleasant day without discomfort. My appe tite is good and 1 enjoy sleep. If I was taken as bad as ever again to-morrow, I have en ioyed life so well for seven months, that it nas a thousand times paid me for the trouble aud expense I have been to get relief. "You ask me how I got relict Well I had not forgotten that part of it by a good deal. But I mil so happy when thinking and talking about my recovery, that I catt not pet in everything at once. No one bill myself can appreciate my condition before last November, and now 1 want to say fo any one who may be affected with either rheu matism, locomotor ataxia or paralysis, thai if they will write me, I u ill make affidavit at to the facts I have stated and to what I owe mv recovery. As I stated, last November I was at my worst, could neither eat, sleep, walk, talk. (C use my hands or feet in ttnv way. I read ift s-o.nc newspaper of some one who had bee* similarly affected as I was. This person had sought cure everywhere for years ami given up to die, when "he commenced taking lr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pule People mid was cured. I did not have any faith iB them, but was prevailed upon to buy a half dozen boxes for t2.5s». I commenced taking them the first of November, and in 3o days, by follow in:.' directions closely, I could see a marked improvement in my condition. Well, I kept right on following instruc tions to the letter. 1 bought another half dozen boxes and then a third, of which I have left nearly two lxixes. It has cost nitf ?7.50 and I am going to make it an even $lw la-fore I stop. Not that I fear that I am n^ii cured, for I never felt better every way ift. my life. But I don't propose to take any chances on quitting too soon.* "An. I sure that Pink Pills cured me? Why_should I not be? Did I not sutler tlie agonies of hell for year* without relief The* 1 took Pink Pills and came out in the shape I am, as you see me to-day and then ask nte if I am sure? Is u man sure he is going die some time? I am just as sure Pink Pills cured nie as you are sure that you are goitsg to a long rest some time. Sure Pink Pills cured me? Well, I am happy to remurk, yes 1 A thousand times yes "I know positively that I was cured l# Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I bclieV® firmly that it is the moot wonderful remedy in existence to-day, and every fact I hav# presented to you is known to my neighbors dRI well as to myself, and they will certify to the truth of my reiuurkuhle cure, 1 r.
