LOUCKS SEES A LANDSLIDE. for it3 dissolution under (iie United '....f-rto nr irfT ROOSEVELT IS IN BRYAN'S TOWN stances I have cited, of populista going back into the republican party In te Hills region, may be duplicated, I have no doubt, on the east side of the river. I have been in only one county on this side of the river to make a speech in this campaign, 'lhat was at Wessington Springs, in Jerauld county, and I found the saute thing there. I am going to be in the am-, paign from this time until election, and I am certain I shall see in the other counties what 1 have nole.l m the portions visited. Up in Brookings county, where I. ion. the fusion nominee for governor, formerly lived, nntl where commenced his savings and loan project, subsequently removed to Sioux Falls. F. O Peterson, who was a delegate to the populist convention at aYnkton, at the time Lien was nominated, has tome. iit in a letter bitterly denouncing him and declaring that not only himself, but scores of other populists in Brookings county absolutely will not support him. This is an iirtiica- and officers all over the country have been uotitied anu every effort is being made to tint) the murderer. Mr. and Mrs. Herdman have lived in the Hills for about tlfree years, and so far as ,s kuov.h, had no enemies. They lived happily together and on pleasant terms with their neighbors Mr. Herdman said yesterday that he didn't suppose either of them had an enemy iu the world Yet it was one of the most brutal, coltl blooded murders ever committed in this country. When Mr. Herdman aroused the neighbors yesterday morning, they remembered having heard a noise and shots, and the fireman at the Kicking Horse heard the noise made by the t utting of the telephone wire about 12 o'clock, but no one investigated at the time. Someone came lo Dead wood for the sheriff, who notified the coroner, and both went out at out e A coroner's juryer was ein-pannellod by Dr Zcrling. coroner, consisting of John Little. W. C. Murphy anil ('.. V. ('rise which found that deceased cume to her death by murder committed by some person unknown. The facts seem to indicate that the murder was deliberately planned by Miintfone familiar with the place ami sun cyindin'gs, ami with the life of the family, as Mr. llerdman had gone on itiulit shift only that night Mrs, Herdman whose maiden name was Mabel Scott, was born in Boone i omit v. Iowa, and was not unite 22 year-, old Sin- was a woman of linns I States anti-trust laws. 1 his was the first action ever brou rt against a trust of this kind. anM 'he outcome of the suit is being ca.- rly looked for by representatives of all the big trusts, since if Mrs. Metealf m successful a'' of the large industrial rporations will have to be roorga d or stand suit of a similar natu ior their dissolution.

King told him that if it happened again lie would kill him. and when the scow struck another bar. King coolly drew his revolver and emptied it into Davenport's body, killing him instantly.

Keystone, they say. has a republican dub of 136 members. ThU is remarkable, considering that four years ago Bryan had a m ajar ity of 9 votes In the precinct. - TOe Penningtotn county convention for the nomination of candidates was held at Keystone a 6hort time ago. and these gentlemen state that it was more like a Fourth of July celebration than a convention. The town was filled with people and the .convention was preceded by a magnificent patriotic demonstration, consisting of a parade br rough ridera and a public flag raising, at which everyone in the town was present The convention passed off with a great degree of harmony, and a remarkable fact was that nearly all nominations were by acclamation. t . a JINtno ncjLui THE WAGE ONER l,ey Demand That Grieyn ces be Civen Attention First. opes of an Early Settlement are Being Abandoned at Scranton.

Anybody who has ever known anything of politics in South Dakota needs not be told very much regarding me ability of H. 1. lxiucks in reaching the people or in estimating a political situation, says the Sioux City Journal. He was the father of populism in that state and mustered a strength which kept the republicans guessing until fusion projects destroyed the identiy t ' the party, and t.ten Mr. I.oucks left it because he did not purpose to act as an adjunt t to detnocra -y. Two years ago be openly declared his determination to act rather with the rt publii ans. ami a large following of nu n who were populists for populism's sake went with him. He is now in the campaign for McKinley. feeling certain that Die principles for which he has labored cannot depend upon the democratic party for 1 ornio'tion. Last evening he was in Sioux City on his way home from the Black Hills, where he has just !-!itred fifteen political speeches; anil if bis juilmont is as good as it used to be there is in store for the republi-i;:ii, a ubiiioiis victory west of the Vi.-souri. and it is bis guess the same . ondit ions prevail east of the river, a I tho be bas not had the same oppor-i unity lo ib-tiiii-tely test tbe sentiment In . p.: -iking of the t a mpainL-n . be -aid I don't Hit it I'll! n of t!f a safe to v ill ee bow I t an be fooled I hay bee,, in every set Hill country . and it was ; to ionl, into the matter bet t hat very eount y out ive a majority for the re-" I iil.ii. ; 1 1 1 tii-ket and Frank I'ett iirew yyill not get a silicic senator or mem bef of tin- bouse not one. I was as toni-bed at Die number of former pop ulists who are coming over lo the republicans. 1 personally know the most prominent populists in that section, and many of the rank and file, and there is a landslide back to republicanism among those who hail gone into the people's parly du'-'ng the time of its great growth. Two years ago the republicans had something like r.OOO majority in the state, and a tremendous part of this was due to populists returning to the party. There will be enough of them this year to assure 10.000"hiajority and others are coming from the democratic party as well. It is my judgment that South Dakota this year will astonish everybody with the republican succes it will record. Populists Are Silent. "I noticed in a recent interview with Senator Pettigrew that he said the populists are not saying much in this campaign, which he regartled as rather singular, because they are naturally agitators. I believe 1 am in a posl tion to know something of the reason for their silence. They are simply disgusted with I he way the y.arty has been betrayed into the toils of democracy, and thev don't purpose, to in (iorse it. Sen:. tor I'cttigrow may count on it that tne silence of the populists mean" St hem. s to use t test rut tion o(l(s people a s a cats- paw.

"State Senator N' w la ml oi lbit.!'" ounty. tertainly one of the very stronee.t populists in the Black Hills, has deserted the fusion projs . t and is out for MtKinley. Dr. Flick and Mr. Lewis both prominent democrats of Pennington t ounty, and Abe Boland vtar every one of these men da. e ago went over to free silver and Dry anism with Pettigrew, are this year supporting the republican ticket. Robert Woods of Custer county, who for years has been prominent as an anti republican leader, is out for McKinley. Peter Miller, formerly a populist leader in Butte county, was chairman of the republican county convention held the other day. He Predicts Defeat. "These are a few of the things which make me feel so sure that every county in the Hills will give a republican majority, and that Petti-grew's senatorial aspirations will not get an atomr of support from that section in Ofe next legislature. Two years ago the republicans had about two-thirds majority in the legislature on joint ballot with only about 5000 majority, on .the state ticket How can it possibly have any less on joint ballot with a state majority twice as large as two years ago?

Kicking horse, the only telephone in Blacktail, was cut and a bay horse belonging to Matt Cart, roll was stolen-.,.. Several days- ago a addle and bridle were, stolen from Carl Moberg.
