NOTICE.
All parties are hereby notified to keep
their stock off of the South-West of
Section 5, Tp. 114, Range 77, (Onida), as
I wish to get the hay this }'ear, which I
cannot do if it is used for a pasture.
Yours Respectfully,
THOS. DONER, Onida, S.
D.

We read a great deal in the public
prints about the vast concentration of
wealth in the hands of a few. A
statement has been going the rounds of
the papers for some time that there are
iu the United States 31,OoO millionaires.
A Mew York paper has recently been
investigating the matter and finds there
are but 3,100 and proceeds to locate
them. We find in looking over the list
that there are less than thirty in the
state of Iowa, and of these seven are
credited to Des Moines. When names
and locations are given the public has
some means of judging as to the truth
and the general accuracy ol the state
ment as to the number of millionaires
in the entire country. We have been
at some pains to make inquiry of men
who are advised as to the facts and we
find that it is extremely doubtful if
there is more than one man in the city
of Des Moines who is worth a million
dollars. There are several who control
a million dollars of property, but are
known to be very large borrowers of
money. It takes a very fat estate to
fry out a million. A man has to be
fattened very nicely to cut up unto
quarter millions after he is dead.
The worst feature of this common
practice of the daily papers in boasting
of the millionaires in the city or state,
is, that it increases to a very great ex
tent and without any just reason, the
prevailing discontent with social and
business conditions.
If the facts are as stated the public
has a right to know them. If, however,
as in this case, the statements are glar
ingly false and known to be so by the
men who have an opportunity to know
the facts, then this foolish boasting of
wealth that is as fictitious as "wind
wheat" on 'change, is an injury to the
entire community.—

THE
delegates from this coifnty to
the Independent State convention at
Redfield were instructed:
"That the delegation from Sully County
be instructed to work and vote for a plank
in the State platform in favor of prohibi
tion and against resubmission.".
G. W. Everts, one of the delegates
so instructed, was giveu a place on the
platform committee at Redfield, but he
joined with the majority in ignoring the
subject. If he had cared a fig for the
instruction or his honor he would have
made a minority report, but he disre
garded them aud received as his reward
a nomination—a soap bubble to be
pricked in November. At home lie
figures as the champion ofthe W. C.
Gee Whiz may laugh at the plight
into which he goaded Walter Price—
and it was laughable to those on the
outside—but it will be sour grapes to
himself in the end. A delegate who
wilfully disobeys instructions in a good
cause is not fit for State Auditor.
The number of depositors in sav
ings banks is above 4£ millions and
the average deposits $358 which is a
very poor calamity text.
In 1859 iron puddlers received $3.
50 per ton. In 1890 they received
$5.50 per ton and each dollar will buy
more than it would in 1859, which is
another very poor calamity text.
The reward of labor has continually
increased since the Republicans came
into power and will go on in the same
line while that policy continues,
Colt Show Postponed.
To whom it may concern:
My colt show advertised to take
place in Onida on July 4th, 1892, has
been postponed until Oct. 1st, 1892, iu
order to give late colts a chance to get
to the front.
All parties indebted to me for colts
will please settle as soon as possible
and save interest.
