W. C. T. U, Convention.
The W. C. T. U. association of Sully
and Hughes counties will hold a con
vention in Blunt, on July 14th and
15th. An interesting program has
been prepared and a large attendance
is anticipated.
In his address to the Redfield con
vention. Tuesday, it is reported that
Gov. Loucks advised his people to let
up the war against local business men
and bankers. If not, defeat was in
store fr the party. Why this flop?
Does it point to a hidden hand of the
State Bankers' association, or does re
morse disturb the Old man's sleep.

the people are assessed. This is a
pretty good showing of live stock.
The Fourth.
The glorious 4th of July has come
and gone, and the people have recover
ed from the affects of celebration dissi
pation and again settled down to busi
ness. As all are aware Onida did not
celebrate to any great extent, and had
it not been for the heavy artillery and
exploits of the boys early in the morn
ing our denizens-who remained at home
—might not have felt a patriotic pang.
Onidains scattered promiscuously.
The Band and quite a number of peo
ple visited Blunt, while others Celebrat
ed at the Westover grove, northwest
ot town, at Turley and Okobojo.
Blunt had a good crowd and varied
program, and Judge Bennett's address
is highly complimented.
At the Westover grove about 50
neighbors met and passed the day in a
fitting manner. A good dinner was
spiead and croquet and other games
indulged in by the older ones and
swings made in the trees for the en
joyment of the children.
At Turley there was a fair attend
ance and a good program. Orations
were delivered by T. M. Simmons of
Onida and J. C. Bogard of Fairvicw,
which are reported to have been well
delivered. Ilorso races, foot races and
other amusements were indulged in
during the afternoon and a sicial dance
in the evening.
At Okobojo the attendance was very
good and everybody enjoyed them
selves. The people of Okobojo pre
pared to make everybody feel patriotic
and celebrate in a most fitting manner,
and succeeded in cveiy particular.
The oiation was delivered by Rev. T.
W. Barry, Chaplain of the U. S. Army,
now stationed at Fort Sully. It was
very eloquent, patriotic and instruc
tive, and the audieuce were so well
pleased that when the speaker took his
seat all arose and gave him three
cheers. Those who heard the oration
will always have a warm spot in their
patriotic bosoms lor Chaplain Barry.
The usual sports were then indulged m,
the slow mule race with half a dozen
starters being the most amusing. In
the evening the large hall was crowded
with merry dancers. The celebration
was gotten up to raise funds to clear
a small balance due on the town hall
and the object, we understand, was
more than realized.

ing instructions bv offering a prohibi
tion plank at Redfield?

"When the board refused to canvas
Grand View precinct then it was the cTuty
of the people to compel the count at pub
lic expense. But the WATCHMAN and the
gang howled in unison of the great ex
pense this thing would be to the dear
people, but Smith said I will fight this
thing at my own expense if you (Faust)
will be the same. This they reluctantly
agreed to do and to show bad faith hardly
had the proceedings began until Crawford
shoved in a bill to the county for over $00
for Attorneys fees. It was no fault of the
gang that it was not paid. They pretend
to claim a great offense has been perpe
trated somewhere and want Simmons to
endorse a summons so as to make the
county responsible for any costs that may
The aboye is a part of an article
from the Onida Journal, the whole of
which is false in every particular.
First, the papers on file with the Clerk
of the Courts show that Smith brought
his action in the name of the county ou
his behalf and that States Attorney
Anderson appeared for the county and
secured an order releasing the county
and compelling Smith to prosecute the
case in his own name at his own ex
pense. Smith did not propose to give
a bond for costs but he and others of
the Independent "gang" boldly said
and still say that the county must in
the end reimburse him for his private
expenses, and he has a bill of expense
that will be presented to the county
board whenever the "gang" thinks it
will be safe to do so, Second, the $00
referred to was not for Crawford's fees
and was not sent here by' him and he
knew nothing about it, but it was for
court costs made by Mr. Smith at Pierre
and was sent here by the Auditor of
Hughes county and our County Audi
tor can testify to the fact. Our Repub
lican county board refused to pa}' the
bill and up to January last when the
political complexion of the boir
changed neither Faust nor Smith was
allowed to burden the county with
their private affairs, and this is also of
record. Third, the Independent-'gang"
through their States Attorney ap
pointed for the purpose—have been
piling up costs onto the county on
Smith's complaints and the grand jury
refused to indict in a single instance,
and these costs already several hundred
dollars are of record.
Fourth, while Smith's majority On the
face of the returns is only 10, Grand
Mew and Pleasant precincts scut in
over 20 illegal votes. The people
want to know how the balance stands
with these votes eliminated.
Mr. Faust has a right to know and
he offers a sufficient bond for the costs
but the Attorney of the "gang" refuses
to let the illegal votes be investigated.
He prefers to pile up more costs
against the county by resisting the in
evitable order that will issue requiring
him to indorse the papers that will
give Faust a hearing, and he says he
will appeal from the Circuit to the Su
preme Court, thereby adding more
If it was "the duty of the people to
compel the count at public expense"
is it not their duty to grant the use of
the county's name to eliminate the il
legal votes when Faust gives a bond
for the costs At first the "gang's
weakling'' agreed to do so when a bond
for #250 was given for costs which was
right,"but when furnished he refused
to sign and demanded a $500 bond.
That being furnished he refused and
demanded a copy of the complaint.
That being furnished he refused unless
Judge Fuller so ordered and so the
people will be taxed for the transporta

Faulkton and Pierre, no one knows how
many times, in resisting a just demand
while the "gang" will continue to
preach reform. But anything to pre
vent a fair count is the program and is
a fair sample of their campaign of ed
