After helping the republicans to win their glorious victory, the weather man got tired and just turned on any old weather he happened to have. The result was that yesterday was a dreary, disagreeable, uncertain day. Tin- sun shone at intervals, but couldn't keep it up long; it was cloudy and cold with that raw penetrating cold that makes you feel as tho you would never be warm again. Hut the most noticeable feature of tho day was the steadily, dow ll the ntrs and noses of who wert wind which blew almost swirling the dust up and streets and around the cor-into the eyes and ears and all the poor, unfortunates - abroad on business. No body went out for pleasure. Everybody but the weather bureau pn dieted a snow stotrm. and that sim ply said "Fair and cooler." K icked By a Horse. William McLemore's little hoy. aged about II j ears, w as seriously injured yesterday morning at his home In Ilald .Mountain by being kicked by a horse. The blow struck him square in the face, blinking his nose and ruling a deep gash on the right side of his face, besides inflicting numerous other injuries. The little fellow was brought to Deadwood last evening and tal. i n to St. Joseph's hospital, where he was treated the physician taking teveral stitches in his face, and doing what lie rould to repair the damage inflicted upon tin- little boy's nose. He is resting easy, and allho badly hurt, w ill pull thru. Serenading the Successful. A half dozen or more singers from the colored republican club serenaded some of the successful candidates Wednesday night about midnight. Their voices were mellow ami musi- t al and blended beautifully, suggesting "The Girl I Loved in Sunny Tennessee," and banjos, and moonlight nights, and all sorts of things more romantic than politics and as charming as success. The candidates thus favored were the Hon. E. W. Martin. Mr. Star. M Wringrose and Miss Helen Bennett. and they are very much pleased with the honor shown them. THURSDAY'S PERSONALS. J. C.

The member., of the I-'gii,n are elect from tin- several Itlaek Hills counties should go to Pierre in January as a unit lor the amendment of the present liquor license law. The license is none too high and the regulations prescribed for the conduit of the business is about as good as can be enacted, but where the injustice comes in is that the statelets one-half of the license and the county only one-half. This is unfair. The Tountien having few,i any ealeoas ut the benefit of the large amount of license paid in Lawrence and other Hlack Hills counties. If. as is claimed, saloons breed crime, .the counties in which saloons are maintained pay for punishing the criminals and they need all the license mom y fur that and other purposes. The Caddy case and alleged perjury cases growing out of it afford a striking illustration of the facts cited above. Already these cases have cost the county over $.-,000 and the end is not yet. The amount of liquor li.enses paid to tin-state by Lawrence eounty for one quarter would cove r 'lie cost of these cases. This is a natter on whi.h we i an. all agree A N IDEAL CANDIDATE.

For four years a large share of ta.s city have devoted eiilu'cay too much attention to politics. Politics ha i entered into tneir thoughts, has manipulated their business, has even (iiviilud them upon social lines. Certain politicians have attempted to win votes anil bolster up their party by boycotting men opposed to them, by throwing a large volume of trade to merchants favoraole to them and diverting a large quantity from mer- bants against them. Hitter personal attacks have ,, been mailt; against diia'liy go-oil Their solely becalisi' of political differences. Slanders have been engineered against others solely for the .amo reason. Men have refused to cooperate in the upbuilding of the city because, they believed that the success of an enterprise would build up certain men of their party. "It has been a long four years of politics. Fortunately, the period is past The overwhelming defeat of the party and the inspiration which brought that disturbance into our city affairs has cleared the field and the ci-v now regain its normal condition, iler. -after when any man or s, t, of ii n't' m: ts to run boycotts or propagate aie'ers or persecute opponents for politi- al views, such a man nr men will be crusht .1 by the weight of public opin.on.

The cyanide plant upon the Golden Crown property has been closed down to allow of improvements being made. The plant Is located within the city limits of Lead, a short distance south of the Highland hoist, and Is owned and operated by Hal-loran & McAllen. 1 no present plant was completed about three months ago, and since that time has been running upon ores taken from the Golden Crown mine. The capacity of this plant was not over twenty tons in twenty-four hours, and was put In for the purpose of experimenting. Tho owners secured the services of two expert chemists and gave the process a thoro test. So satisfactory has been the result that the the management have decided to lncreaes the capacity of the plant to fifty tons per twenty-four hours.
