Springfield, Dec. 16.—Oaa of the most sensational damage suits ever tried in the courts of South Dakota was disposed of )during a recent term of -:tate circuit court In Bonhomme county. The plaiatiff in the action was Miss Amanda Skoagland, who sought to re cover damages in the sum of #5,000 from Lee Michel, a prominent business man of Springfield, S. D. After hear ing the evidence in the case the jury warded Miju Skoagland damages in tbe sum of #2,12.". The suit was the outgrowth of an episode which occurred some months ago. Michel is the owner of a public hall in Springfield, and at the time of the occurrence which terminated in the damage suit a dance was being held in the hall. Among the guests was Miss Skoagland. It was alleged that dm ing the pro gress of the dance Michel appeared in the nail in an lutoxicated condition and after being there a short time asked Miss Skoagland to dance with him. She refused, when Michel is al leged to have lost his temper and gave vent to his wrath by denouncing the young woman before the large number of persons who ware attending the danoe. The matter is not yet ended, for Michel's attorneys will ask for a new trial, and, if this ie refused, doubtless will carry the case to the state supreme court. LASSOESlAN Wqpan Almost Beats Ranch man to Death for Insults. Buffalo, Wyo, Dec. 10.—Herlnjrt Q. jenayns.a ranchman residing near this place, probably will think twice before he again attempts to insult a child. Because he attempted to take advan tage of the 14-year-old daughter of Mrs. Fred Graf,residing on a neighbor ing ranch, he was lassoed, hog tied and almost beaten to death by the indig nant mother of the girl. The punishment of the ranchman by Mrs. Graf was one of the most sensa tioiial incidents in the histor of John son county. When Mrs. Graf learned that he had insulted her daughter she ordered her hired man to drive her to tbe Jenbyns ranch. Arriving there they were informed that the ranchman had departed for Sheridan in company with another man. Mrs.Graf immediately followed and overtook Jenkyns and his compan ion on Massacre hill. Whil« the hired man held her horses Mrs. Graf com pelled the ranchman and his compan ion to halt by threatening them with a six shooter. She then made Jenkyns alight from hip wagon and ordered his companion to drive on. When tbe other man had gone some distance Mrs. Graf uncoiled a lariat and proceeded to rope Jenkyns. The ranchman pro tested until a bullet from tbe woman's revolver clipped a piece out of one of bis ears. Mrs. Graf proceeded to bog tie him, and then belattored bim with a nirt until be was almost dead. Jenkyns shrieked for mercy,but the mother paid no attention to his cries, and continued *the beating nnf.ii she feared further punishment would kill her victim. While the beating was neing ad win in tered Mrs. Graf's hired man sat in tbe wagon and made no attempt to assist or interfere. Finally satisfied that the punish merit of the ranchman had been suffi cienr, Mrs. Graf left him and drove back to her home. Jeukyu's com pan ion picked him up and drdare to Ban ner. EVANGELIST Stirs the People of Watertown —Dance Hall Closed. Wateitown, Dec. 16.—An audience of over 2,MNt people gathered in tbe taber uacle erected to accommodate the un ion evangelistic meetings now in pro gress in this city, and listened for an hour and a half to Rev. Oscar Lowry. of Red Falls, la., indict the card table, the theater and the dance-"the trinity i of social evils." In polite language, and yet in terms so plain as to leave no doubt as to his meaning,the reverend gentleman accused tbe social set of i gambling every time they played cards for stakes, and declared that they sent their graduates direct to the gambling dens to become the prey of the knights of tbe green cloth. His arraignment of the theater was on tbe charge of immorality in the players and the pre senting for approval and applause of the baser instincts and passions of life, But it was bis scathing denuncia tiou of the dance, backed up by testi mony from dancing masters, doctors. I and disciplines of the christian denom inations, including a signed statement from Bishop Spaulding, of New York. that made nis audience sit up and take notice. The lecture has been the talk of Up town.
