Smith, recently of Kentucky, who has made strenuous efforts to introduce the political methods of his state into South Dakota elections, denies that he was arrested in Sioux Falls last spring for corruption in connection with the city election. Probably not. Our Informant may have been mistaken as to that, but if the carges made by the Sioux Falls Journal, a democratic paper, were trti, he ought to have been. Smith also says his wife is not being entertained at the Soldiers' Home at state expense. Arthur l.inn, son of the commandant of the Home, and editor of a pop paper, says that she was there, but came to Deadwood yesterday norning. It is not the policy of court. .licL-e H.-tinett thc;l a reiisonahle tune in wh two and til.- his aW1 chaiiL'.. of judo s. that the-j attempt were made the supreme court of the United States would surely interpret the constitution in the spirit of its founders and for the preservation of the constitutional government the reasons as.-irned mist' li-cord. and aN time in 'i iKirc an all -u r mi drrhirsl to which we owe our stability and WHO IS R EPSON Si BLE ?

This is of inestimable benefit to everyone who has occasion to use tho roads. The Introduction of the rural free delivery system has increased the amount of mail handled In the districts affected from. 40 to CO per cent, and it Is becoming necessary to Increase the facilities for handling mall on all the routes. The largest Increase has been in tho newspaper mall, which in some parts of the country has been 300 per cent. The next largest Increase has been In fourth class mall, or merchandise purchased by mall orders, which has grown in gome places by 90 per cent. For three years during the Cleveland administration attempts were made to secure the establishment of rural free delivery, but the matter was ignored. The postmaster general of Cleveland refused to carry out the provisions of the postofflce appropriation bill designed for rural free delivery. Postmaster General Wilson, of Cleveland's last administration, tried forty experimental routes, but did not deem them of sufficient Importance to make any reports on them. Postmaster General Heath realized the requirements of the farming communities, and as soon as he took his office he began establishing the routes. The appropriation made by congress for the present fiscal year was inadequate, however, and Instead of $1,750,000, It should have been four or five times that amount, proving that the democratic postmaster generals, who announced themselves opposed to the system In making their reports, and endeavored in every way to prevent congress from making further appropriations for It. were not alive to the situation. ' Under a republican administration the rural free delivery route will be a permanent part of tho enormous mail system of the United States, and will be extended as rapidly as necessary to meet tho needs of th farmrs. o ' ABRAM 8. HEWITT S POSITION. Arraigns "Bryanltm" and Arraigns the Republican Alarmist. The following letter was written by exMayor Hewitt in denning his position in regard to the presidency: "The political situation at this time is of a very different character from that which presented . itself four yean ago. At that time it seemed possible to maintain a distinct democratic organization based upon the fundamental principles enunciated by Jefferson, and which had continued to govern the party in all previous presidential elections. The nomination of Palmer and Buckner was not made' with any idea that they could be elected, but in order to preserve an organisation about which sound democrats could rally In case the teresles of the republican platform should he repudiated by a subsequent convention - professing to be democratic. The recent convention held at Kansas City, has, however, Tendered all snch expectations hopeless. The party which . calls Itself democratic la In reality popullstlc and based upon doctrines, which.

THE COUNTY TICKET. The republicans have before the voters this year a county ticket that appeals to the business sense of the voters of all parties. It is made up of clean, strong men, who axe capable of administering the affairs of the county that may come within their respective jurisdictions, to the best advantage and the highest satisfaction of the tax payers. They are men whose characters stand out free from blemish, and if elected the convention that placed their names on the ticket will have received commendation for the pains and deliberation it exercised, and the sense of fitness It observed in selecting them. Several of them have been before the people, have been tried and not found wanting in any particular. Others have not sought political favors before, but they entertain the full confidence of their friends. Their records In business, professionally and in common life have been such as to entitle them to the most thougtful consideration of the suffragists, who are assured that .1 who is to blame. No doubt but these murderous attacks are made by gangs of hoodlums, thugs, etc ', as is generally charged hut why are these creatures always mustered under demo-pop auspices? This ambush, dark alley method is always aimed at republicans, never at the demo-pops, as a species of political warfare it Is becoming most startlingly one-sided. The republicans muster no thugs. They have no dark alley methods. They make no attacks, but simply stand by their guns. An enlightened public opinion as well as statute law, holds the man who starts a prairie fire ft responsible for the damage done, no matter how unwittingly he may have kindled the blast. On the same ground Mr. Bryan cannot escape responsibility for these outrages. His speeches made from rear platforms are not arguments, but groundless assertions upon which are based appeals made to the passions and prejudices of his hearers. He overlooks ihe solidarity of the American people, which fact is an internal principle in all republican legislation. By his appeals to different sections and different conditions he disintegrates the populace into classos and proceeds to array class against class.
