SiotJt Falls. Apri" 16.—Another post
ponement haa been granted in the ca^e
of Anson Wagar, former United Htatea
conimiasioiier at Dallas, which origtf
nally WHS fixed for trial in the federal
court here this week The trial now
has been fixed to commence next
Monday morning at 9 o'clock. The
postponement toi tbe second time was
due to the fact that an important wit
neaa for tbe defeuse could not reach tbe
city this week. It is cettaiu tbat tbe
case will be one of tbe most bitterly
contested ever tried in the LJnitod
Htates court
After hearing arguments in the
case Judge Carlaud denied a motion
made by C. P. batea, attorney for
James F. Six, John Hush and Robert
Hall, under indictment for selling li
tjuor to four diderent Indians living on
tbe Pine Ridge reservation, for the is
Ntiing of a commission to taka tbe de
positions of the secretary of the inter
ior and the commissioner of Indian
xtTxirs at Waahington.
The United states grand jury, after
bt«ing in session for a period of eixbt
days, has concluded its work. The
grand jury returned ten additional in
dictments, but the names of those in
dieted and the otfeiihea churned MRaiDat
them have been withheld from tbe
public, for the reasou that none of the
defendants have not vet been placed
under arrest.
Tbe grand jnry returned a "no
bill" in the case Dan Htiuti, a Sioux
Falls restaurant man, who was charged
with having, fioui January 4 to 10 of
tma year, carried on the basinew of a
retail liquor dealer without having
tirst paid the government special tax.
After being out a abort time a jury
returned a verdict of acquittal in the

RIVER THREATENS
Milwaukee Railway Track Near
Sioux City Men Work
by Torchlight
Sioax City, April 16 —With alatm
ing rapidity the treacherous Missouri
river last night suddenly began to
make inroads
011
$
its banks in proximity
to the Milwaukee right of way at the
big bluff west of the city where the
road follows close to tbe banks. Tbe
situation was so alarming tbat Road
inaster M. Murphy with a work train,
hurried seventy-live meu to the scene
where they succeeded in checking the
erosion by riprapping with willows,
brush and rocks.
The current attacked the bank on tbe
curve southeast of the Brughier cross
ing. The rivei is only at a normal
stage, bat at this point it ran like a
mill race, hitting the bank with angry
force. A short distance up tbe river
on the Nebraska side a sandbar deflect
ed tbe stream's energy to this spot.
Tbe waters awirled, making a roaring
noise as they came in contact with
the government dikes. Great chunks
of soil melted into the stream until the
greedy current was checked.
The scene on the riverbank was
picturesque. Hugh torches were lit
and in tne flaring light the men
worked desperately. T^ns of rock
were used. Fioin early in tbe evening
until 1 o'clock this morning the gang
worked, battling against the hungry
waters. This morning when the men
were exhausted, Road master Murpby
brought them back to town for a luncu.
The men were tiled, wet and hungry.
They weiethen sent for a rait and will
iv£,
-y
be out on tbe job again early this
morning.
Mi. Murphy said there is no imme
diate danger, and that be believes he
has the river checked. "But we got
there just in tbe nick of time," he
said. "The river now is only Mbont
fifty feet from the tracks, and if it hud
started in the night much damage
might have resulted. Mr Muiphy says
tbe bsnk will lie sttrongly riprapped,
and ho expects no furtbei trouble
THREE TOWNS
To Be Considered in the Loca
tion of the Odd Fellows
Home
Bionx Fa lis, April 16.—M. J. Sweet
ing returned Thursday evening from
Huron, where be attended a meeting of
the board which has in charge the mat
ter of selecting the location for a hoina
which the Odd Fellows of Houtn Dako
ta propose establishing.

been tasen under con-idcration by the
board, which will make a report and
recommendation to tbe grand lodge of
Odd Fellows of South Dakota at its an
nual meeting, to convene at Deadwood
011
May IS. Not until tbat time will
it be detiniteiy known which of tbe
competing towns have captured the
home.
Propositions were submitted by Hig
Stone, Lake Preston, Hot Springs,
Dell Kapids and Sioux Falls. The
three best propositions which the hoard
has under consideration in making its
selection of the location for tbe home
are those submitted by Sioux Falls,
Dell Rapids and Hot Springs.
Tbe members of the board, before
making a selection from tbe proposi
tions under consideration will visit
and inspect the sites which have been
offered as an inducement for the board
to locate the home 111 the towns sub
mitting tbe propositions.

and the recommendation of the board
is ratified by tbe grand lodge, work

The Madison Electric Light
Situation Up |to
Date-
A few words in regard to th" situa
tion relative to ihe city electrc light
and watei work# plant might not be
amiss at this time. The situation is
just simply this: We must "either
shoot or give up the gun.'' In other
words, we must either put in a new
plant complete, repair the old one or
quit making 'ight and pumping water.
In order to put in tbe new plant or
repair tbe present system so we can
reasonably expect to get along for a
few years more, it is absolutely neces
sary to vote the bonds tbat the council
have asked for. So much is granted.
Now, if we repair tbe present sys
tem so it will be in condition to serve
for, say, three or four years, It will
cost in the neighborhood of eight or
nine thousand dollars, and at the end
of the four or five years we would sim
ply have tbat much more old junk on
hand to get rid of. If on the other
band we at this time put in an up to
date equipment of the best possible
niakt" and of ample size we will have
a system that is abreast of the times
and that will be good for ten or twelve
years to come and at the same tine
be economical and assure the city a net
saving over the present syetem of close
to five thousand dollars a year.
These are not extravagant statements
and are being proven every day all
over the country.
We can assure the people of Madison
that your council and mayor are anx
ious to give you tbe liest results for tbe
motfey invested, but with the present
outfit this is absolutely out of the ques
tion. The present system, beside be
ing sadly out of dcte.is overloaded and
of poor efficiency, making it impossible
to get good results from the same.
The two boilers we now have are
showing very badly the bard usage
they have been subjected to, and more
so the past winter.
We will ventura to make this state
ment without fear of contradiction
that Madison has the best lighted
streets and the lowest rates for lights
of any city in the state of South Dako
ta. We believe you are proud of your
well lighted streets, and we don't be
lieve you would be willing to be
without them, and this brings us at
once to the case in hand. Tbe council
must have the money asked for in this
bond issue or they must close down
the light system. They have simply
got to do something with the system
if we continue to run. Madison is in
need of some kind of manufacturing
enterprises and as we are now fixed we
can give such people no assurance ot
either light or power, whereas if we
had a proper system we could assun
them of both. Jqst reason this out
with yourselves and see what Madi
son will gain. Yes, what you will
gain by having this new lighting
system that will be a source of plea
sure, and, better still, of revenue to
all. This is the time of progress,the
time of business economy and fore
sight. Let us urge you to give youi
consent to this bond issue by your votr
and thereby help the council to step
paying the city's good money for fuel
and freignt where we can just as well
keep it here in Madison for our own
benefit and comfort. Respectfully,
Paying cash with order for goods, or
paying cash on delivery of same is
the most satisfactory way of trading
as well as the most gratifying when
checking over the month's allowance
for household expenses. How an
noying it is on receiving your allow
ance, to think that it all must be
paid out within three or four hours,
it's like "paying for a dead horse".
Try the Ginder Market for a month
and see if you don't have some of
vour allowance at the end of that
time, for CASH IS KING.
