One field in Minnehaha County has already threshed out twenty-nine bushels of wheat to the acre. Another ppike In the Pop coffin. Before the fusionists get to Blinging mud at the Republican candidates it .would be well for them to explain about the governor's connection with powdell. Where is the Populist paper in this State which is talking good times, is pushing public enterprises, is advertis ing the resources of the state and its Tast immediate prospects? Senator Pettlgrew says that silver should be made the sole issue of the campaign. Chairman Kidd eays that the Bilver issue is a humbug. These worthy patriots ought to hold a cau us. Major McKinley Beveral yeaft ago declared in a speech that in every great emergency the Almighty placed in control a man endowed with ample powers to meet it. And the proof of his dictum came when William McKinley was placed in charge of this country's destinies in 1896. . it would seem that Chairman Kidd of the Populist state committee has thing well in harni among his brethren when hf anuonred recently that he was through with reform and would de vote himself henceforth to revolution the declaration came as a shock to many people. It was regarded as startling throwing off of the mask. But il Hernia that he is to be followed in this extreme by the other Pops. The following article from the Hartford Vindicator, Populist, will give an idea ol the way in which the Populist mind ib drifting: The Populist party should not credit Mr. Kidd with any supernatural power in his ability to prognosticate the course of events political, it was forced upon him Just as it has been and will continue to be forced upon thou sands of others, whose united enlight enment will at last deliver this country if it ever is delivered from the curse of corrupt political rule. The Chicago Haymarket agitators were de nounced as anarchists and traitors and hunted down and hanged not be cause some fool among them exploded bomb but for public utterance of fcrced conviction in language that is today a common thing among the best thinking people of the land. The Argus-Leader really does not care to argue the proposition. It comes with too severe a shock. Here is a great party, right in South Dakota, up holding the red-handed Chicago anar- hlsts as patriots and seersfi Here is the manager of the party declaring that his political aim is revolution, and a prominent party organ lauding the anarchists, who taught the doctrine of the bomb and the fire brand, who over their boer mugs preached the violent overthrow of all government, the abolition of the family, the stamping out of religion, the annihilation of all property rights, the absolute freedom of every man and woman from moral nd physical law. It Is startling to hear these views expressed out in the clear air and rus tling, progressive society of South Da kota. It is not strange to find in a great ity that the besotted, unbalanced, ig norant and morally regraded fugitives from European law, the refugees of the slums, the men who exercising no thrift or energy or virtue themselves sought to prey on the sober and industrious about them, should get together and fulminate against a social system which decrees that if a man will not work, neither shall he eat. But to hear this same doctrine preached in South Dakota, where every man of energy, intellect and thrift can easily win a competence, where the results of established law are so clearly beneficient, where sobriety and virtue and thrift are characteristic, is ominous. The Populist party as a whole has not adopted this plan, but it is ominous that that party has chosen for its leader a man whose motto has been for years "Socialism in Our Time," and who before his election to his present station declared that the silver question was a humbug, that his present aim was revolution. It is ominous that a Populist organ should land the Chicago fiends whose contempt for law or reason or justice brought the Haymarket murders. Are the Populists drifting to anarchism THE fHILlf PItf E QUESTI0K The press over the whole country is urging that America cannot consistently make any peace with Spain that does not give us the control of the Philippine islands. Typical Americans are not land-thirsty but for the sake of civilizing and christianizing they be lieve the poor people of theso far islands of the sea, who have so unexpectedly been thrown under our pto-teetlon ehould not be deprived of the advantages we cau give them. We owe a duty to them and to the world, and w e must discharge It at no matter what cost to us. Yankton Gazette. , It hardly seems to us that we owe any more duty to the Philippines than to the Dahomeyans or the Zuens or the inhabitants of Central Africa. This government was created primarily for the benefit of its citizens, as a purely business combination, and its duty is to them. If the Philippines wish to be protected by this country and if they are ready to submit to civilized rule, it might benefit the people of the United States to anex the islands and give the semi-savages a lesson. But to send great army across the Pacific to win their love by shooting them down burning their villages and extorting their savings would be a very costly proceeding for us, would be absolutely opposed to our theory of government would endanger both now and in the future our relations with other nation would almost certainly involve us soon er or later in a great war, and after all would give the poor islanders a sorry picture of Christianity and civilization If it develops that the Philippines want annexation to this country they will doubtless get It, but they haven't shown any desire so far. It must be remembered also that it is very far from the truth to talk of lowering the flag where it has been once raised. The flag has never been raised over the Philippines. We have never had pos session of them. We have captured the city and bay of Manila and there is no prospect of giving them up. But w have not attempted to sieze one of the other countless islands and the stars ana stripes nave never waved over them. The people to be consulted in this matter are the Philippines. If they want to be Americans they will be wel corned. But it would be Indefensible to make them so by force of arms. The most notable occurrence of the time except for the war is the enor mous expansion of American exports of manufactures. A Pittsburg company has just received an order for 770 tons of steel plate to be shipped to Belfast Ireland, to be used in ship building. The United States will soon manufac ture for the world as she now feeds it. Just now the Pop papers, being una Die 10 nna any iaie men at home are eympathizing with those who are al leged to be out of work in theeast. CANNOT THE GOVERNoB EXPLAIN 1 Did we hear Judge Palmer eay any thing about eight cent oats? THE THE Governor Lee has not yet made the explanation demanded in the Dowdell case and his newspaper supporters are iepresenting him REPUBLICANS AND RAILROADS. Elk Point Courier: In all candor we want to submit to our Populist friends tnat it is hardly the fair thing to ac cept the statement of an opponent in preference to the official utterance of the party involved. If the Sioux Falls Argus-Leader should declare that the Populist party was opDosed to the ini tiative and referendum in the face of a plank in the Populist Dlatform favor ing that measure, we should be bound to believe the latter. A man or a party aione is qualified to state his intentions and purposes; his opponent may and rroDaDiy aoes have an interest in mis- 2N AN EVIL PLIGHT. The Pops are really in a desperately bad plight. Ow ing to the short-sightedness of their leaders in congress they are debarred from advocating the annexation of the Philippines. And yet in that annexa tion appears to lie the only hope of free silver. Its advocates are rapidly disappearing from among the intelli sent voters of this country and unless we can get some south sea island sen ators another election or two will clear the last vestage of the cheap money yell from the national halls. WKINLEY WAS FAR-SEEING. Reports which are now coming In describing the growing hostility of the Cuban insurgents add to the evidence that President McKinley knew what he was doing when he overrode the silver ca- .bal of the senate and forced the recognition of the Cuban people instead of the insurgent government. Senator 'Pettigrew and others of the little coterie said some very harsh things labout the president because he refused 1 to recognize their friends of the Junta, tut the people of the United States Jinow that he was right NO LONGER A DEBTOR. Do you know that the United States has prac tically ceased to be a debtor nation? And with a continuance of the enor mous balance of trade secured by the present Republican tariff she will soon be a great world's creditor? There was a time wnen ioreign capital was a prime factor in the development of this country, but the time has passed. We have developed the country and we have repaid the loans on which we did it. Not even a Pop will be able here- tsfter to talk about Europe fastening a t nanclal system on us for the purpose of unjustly enlarging our debts. singularly eilent. Is it possible that the governor has no excuse to offer? Is it possible that he is compelled to ad mit complicity in the default? Is it possible that he can make no denial of the charge that knowing his favorite to be short in his accounts the govern or allowed him to quietly withdraw from office without even a reprimand and that though the shortage continued for several months afterward the governor made never a move to punish the defaulter? If there Is an explanation to be made the governor would best make it right away, for the people are watching him. They want to know why he has refused to prosecute Dow dell as he prosecuted Mayhew and Hippie. They want to know why he allowed Dowdell to quietly resign instead of dismissing him in disgrace. They want to know why he allowed this shortage to stand for months without an attempt to collect it and without a move toward punishing the ex-offlclal. The people know that the governor has done this. They know that after his resignation and while the governor held that secret report of the public examiner closely in his hand, Dowdell was hte loudest shouter in the state for the governor's renomination. Is there a connection between these facts? A CAMPAIGN OF VILIFICATION. The Areus-Leader has rpneivwi . a straight tip that the Pops intend to make this a campaign of vilification. No matter whom the Republicans nominate the candidates will be denounced a3 machine men, railroad lobbyists, defaulters and general public enemies. The Popu realize that they are on the wrong side of every public issue, that they can gain nothing from any appeal to reason and tbty will devote their energies to an atempt to cover the Republican candidates with taud. In this connection we wish to auote me utterance or the convention of the Second judicial district last fall. It is interesting not only as pledging the party policy for the futre, but also as NO WOMAN IS EXEMPT. Regularity is a matter of importance in every woman s life. Much pain is. however, endured in the belief that it Is necessary and not alarmincr, when in truth it is all wrong and indicates derangement that may cause serious trouble. Excessive monthly pain itself will unsettle the nerves and make women old before their time. The foundation of woman's health is a perfectly normal and regular performance of nature's function. The statement we print from Miss Ger-tbtok Sixes, of Eldred, Pa , is echoed in every city, town and hamlet in this country. Read what she says: 44 Dkab Mbs. Pinkham: I feel like a new person since following your ad-Tice,' and think it is my duty to let the public know the good your remedies have done me. My troubles were painful menstruation and leucorrboea. I was nervous and had spells of being confused. Before using your remedies I never had any faith in patent medicines. I now wish to say that I never had anything1 do me so much good for painful menstruation as Lydia E. Pink-ham's Vegetable Compound; also would say that your Sanative Wash has cured me of leucorrhcea. I hope these few words may help suffering women." The present Mrs. Pinkham's experience in treating female ills is unparalleled, for years she worked side by side with Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham, and for sometime past has had sole charge of the correspondence department of her great business, treating by letter as many as a hundred thousand ailing women during a single year. All suffering women are invited to write freely to Mrs. PinVham, at Lynn, Mass., for advice about their health. recalling the record of the past. The present railroad law is not a Populist measure. It was originally framed by, a itepuuucan legislature, ana wnen adopted with slight modifications by our own the Republicans voted solidly in favor of It. When the official utterances of a party are found to be in harmony with its past record, then its platform of principles Is worthy of the' utmost credence. The Republican party has fairly earned the right to be believed when it officially outlines its policy as follows: "Believing that the great transportation companies doing business in this state have for years practiced severe discriminations against our people, greatly restricting the profits of our farmers and retarding the growth of our cities, knowing that all efforts to secure concessions have failed, and re lying on the principle established by twenty-five years of legal decisions that the state is. clothed with full power to regulate and control common carriers, we heartily endorse the ac tion of every Republican senator and member of the legislature, who, following the mandate of the Aberdeen convention, advocated and voted for the passage of the Iowa railroad law We unanimously and emphatically pledge the Republicans of this circuit to support the enforcement of that law, and to use ail of their power to secure such amendments as may be necessary to insure its success."

In like manner men and women JOHN L. PYLE. John L. Pyle, the subject of this sketch was born at Coal Run, Washington county, Ohio, on ay 5thM, I860. His parents removed to Illinois when he was six years of age and there he received a common school education,, and attended one year in the preparatory department of Westfield college in southeastern Illinois. In 1879 re went to Glendale, Montana, which was then several hundred miles from a railroad and found that the only employment that offered was the work of a common laborer at the smelting works, or work in the mines; he chose the former and worked for about two years as a laborer and as furnaceman and feeder of the smelters at that point; then went to Wickes, Montana and was engaged as furnaceman and as foreman of the smelting crew and also part of the time at carpenter work in the rebuilding of the works after they were destroyed by fire, remaining there until 1882, when he settled on a farm about five miles from Miller. Here he commenced reading law under the supervision of aMnford E. Williams and worked in town at carpenter work and also on the farm part of the time until after he made final proof on his land; then went into the office of Mr. Williams in Miller and remained there until he was admitted to the bar in the spring of 1885, he then became a member of the firm of Williams & Pyle and practiced law in Miller until 18S9 when he removed from Miller to uron to take charge of the law department of the Dakota Farm Mortgage Company, then doing an extensive business. While in Hand county he was married in May, 1886 to Miss Mamie Shields of Miller and has a' family of four children, one boy and three girls. In 1886 he was elected district attorney of Hand county on the Republican ticket and served in that capacity one term. Was admitted to practice in United States supreme court at Washington in 1895. Since removing to Huron he has been on one side or the ether of a large part of the important business in his part of the state and is recognied as a care'ful and able practitioner. His business extends over a good portion of the state and into North akota and in both the state and federal courts. While in Montana he commenced reading the Chautaugua course of. reading and finished it after coming to Dakota. He traces his-genealogy on the paternal side to the family of Sharpless who came to this countzry with William Penn In 1682 and hence is of Quaker stock, his mother was born in England. Both of his parents died in Miller. He has always been a Republican and in every campaign has taken the stump for the success of the Republican ticket. drop out of sight when they lose their health.
