South Dakota Institutions Would
Like Big Money This
Pierre, Dec. 13. —Deep disappoint
ment is coming for the heads of most
of the sate inBtitntions at the coming
legislative session. Their aggregate
demand* upon the state tieasury will
for |1.000,0" for new buildings at
the 1 iflferent iuntitutions. In the latst
campaign the heavy appropriations of
the hut H*'»sion were defeuded 011 the
ground that it was necessary to pro
vide new buildings for the many state
institutions. Hut the beads of the in
stitutions want more. The state uni
versity thinks it could get along for
two years inore if it were given
$345,000 for that purpose: the ngricul
tuial college at Brookings will he sat
istied with $185,(MW, and the asylum for
the feeble-minded at Kedlield wants
#127,000 more. The rest of them are
willing to get along with from |100,
000 down to smaller sums, but all
This total does not include any
thing for the completion of the work
on the state capitol. The commission
•will ask for approximately |400,000,for
that work. They claim that as their
building is under construction and is
absolutely needed, their claim should
hold the first position before any new
buildings are commenced. Further,
their appropriation will come back to
the state in cash as soon as it is advis
able to place the rest of tbe state build
ing lands on the market. They wi'l
auk for a continuance of the |20,000
appropriation of two years ago. whirh
has not been drawn upon. They will
ask for tbe issuance of #100,000 of
building bonds for ten years: they will
iisk for authority to expeud #100.000
more from tbe sale uf lauds, and this
they estimate will complete the build
ing, furnisn it and fit i'p the grounds.
They have expended #2y3,li)/j to date

The old fashioned way of Hosing a

pointed out this error. This is why his

is directed entirely to the cause of these
ailments—the weak inside or control

Dr. Bhoop, to strengthen a weak Stom

correctly. Eash inside organ has its

Public Sentiment Against Riley,
West South Dakota
Fairfnx, Dec. 13.—With the evidence
of the *tate in tbe W. A. Riley murder
case all in and the defendant through
his attorneys seeking to break down
the force of the prosecution, the case
will go to tbe jury this evening.
Riley is accused of having gone to
Lallaye's livery barn in Burke July 1
and picked a row with J. E. Ritts,
whom he accused of having stolen
from his house a piece of bacon. The
state has brongnt witnesses to prove
that Kiley knocked Ritts down and
kicked him several times, and expert
witnesses have testified to tne fact that
it was from injuries received from
Riley that the victim died.
The defendant's attorneys claim to
be able to show that Riley acted in
self defense in his encounter with
Ritt-». but the cross examination of the
state's witnesses by the defendant's
counsel gave no intimation of this.
Ritts, who had formerly lived in
Iowa, was living on a claim several
miles fiom Burke at the time the
tragedy O'-curred and his murder left a
family dependent u^»on him. He was
considered an honest and industrious
mas, and tbe tragedy aroused indigna
tion in the community and the feeling
is still very bitter against the man now
00 trial for murder.
Vessel Urns at Sea.
New York, Dec. 14.—The honey
moon trip of Captain Hudson, skipper
of the Hath (Me.) schooner Henry
Clausen, Jr., and his bride last month
was thrilling in the extreme, accord
ing to details received of their ex
periences on board that 111 fated ves
sel, which, after numerous vicissi
tudes, finally burned in midocean.
The newly married couple and crew,
finally rescued by a passing steamer,
were taken to Messina and it is from
there that an account of the experi
ences has reached this city. The
Clausen, a three-master, was bound
from Qulfport, Miss., to tbe Azores,
lumber laden. When some 500 miles
from St. Michaels, her port of des
tlnation, on Nov. 10, a hurricane be
gan to tear away everything above
decks and for three days kept the lit
tle company of eight in terror, re
lieved only by Mrs. Hudson's brave
singing of hymns and recounting of
Bible stories. The schooner sprang
a leak and all the food was uner wa
ter. .lust as it seemed that the vessel
must go to pieces a steamer was sight
ed. It proved to be the Snowdonia
and all were rescue in lifeboats.
Hardly were they aboard than smoke
began to pour from the Clausen and
soon the wreck was ablaze.
