Owner of morning Associated Press franchise receiving full reports. A Muzzling More. A remarkable request las !e-E lodgfC with the New York legislature by some of the captains of industry of that state. The legislature is asked to enact a law prohibiting the publication of any recital of the condition of insurance companies, banking companies and trust companies in any monthly, weekly, tri-weekly or quarterly magazine or newspaper. 1 The captains of industry have perhaps st-ieaed tor o-nsorsnip the publications they do not own, Having de-voti th&r cumulative efforts to the daiiy newspapers uuwrr the lei.ef that the blower publications could not acquire much influence out among the people. But the magazine has proved to bi the most faithful delineator of th- methods of the "captains" and it i carrying its statements into the home. f the intelligent ail over the laiid. Inert has never been a time in his-toiy when magazine literature monthly and weekly was so widely disseminated as now and the great increase in circulation is bated upou articles dealing with financial and political graft and the methods of great financial organizations. A new class of writers has come into existeute on the opportunities of trie magazine and! they teal with topics to which the public has not heretofore bad aouess the inner workings of tys-tems under which finance and government are conducted. It is these authors that the captains of industry seek to suppress through legislation and the effort they are making in that direction to evidence of the extreme to which the tyranny : of wealth would go if it were permitted. They ask for the prohibition, of literature damaging to their moral standing unless the publication in which it appears is possessed of paid up capital to the extent of $200,000 and an additional deposit of $200,000 in the state Insurance department, and then it may appear only by permission of the insurance department. This singular attempt to muzzle the press might succeed in a state lake New York through corruption and if half the magazine writers have said about the financiers and the politicians is true, bribery would be the least ef their sins. in which the goods are offered for sale must tell the story and purchasers need not be misled. Cuming to South Dakota. Assistant General Manager Under-wcod. of the Milwaukee railroad, a recent visiter to South Dakota, says "the go-west spirit of a half a century ago, when thousand of prairie schooners set sail for the land beyond the M s-scurf, has been revived." instead of traveling by prairie schooner, the thousands are coming mostly by rail, though the schooner Is not yet an obsolete means of transportation, many of them passing through the Cham-Ix-riain gateway. The migratory procession to which Mr. Underwood refers is headed for South Dakota, and it Is going beyond the Missouri for its. home locations. It is not afraid of the quarter section farm. It if going to develop the long tenantless solitude that has remained unclaimed because the railroads have let it alone. Mr. Underwood bent this bow of promise across the horizon of the future: D O jo er tke Gordo. Httl Gordon THERE can be no reason why you shouldn't wear a Gordon Hat (soft or stiff) even if you're most exacting. The more exacting you are the more reason for selecting a Gordon Hat. The better you know hats the truer will be your appreciation. Gordon Hats $3 A Machine That Flies I side of a itrike, while the pclice are arrayed1 on the other side as a matter of necessity; Thus far 1,900 strike I Experts who witnessed the flight o! ; Prof. John Montgomery's aeroplane at I Santa Clara, Cal., are almost unsn - mous in the belief that the most difficult feature in the flying machine problem has been solved. I It only remains to be proved that the aeroplane will support an eugina of sufficient motive power to drive it through the air. The ability of the aeroplane to support a man weighing 145 pounds was clearly demonstrate!, the scientific observers believe. The experiment there was witnessed by several thousand spectators, who almost held their breath as the aeronaut drove the machine at pleasure anJ performed evolutions and gyrations which before have been dene only by a bird. First a big balloon towed up the aeronaut and his winged machine several hundred! feet Then the aeronaut cut the rope which held him to the balloon The aeroplane immediately settled on its silken flimsy wings, while the huge balloon went rolling and tumbling away on the wind., dwindling in size and falling toward the ground. With the aeronaut poised on the framework on a level lower than that now on their way here are settled otn- " "a"- -" Z .riuZ eiry irom me ouisiue, many oi wuuiu er industries will come. Were not afraid of that. Any road we build there will get revenue from local haziness jfrom the start." Congressman Kinkaid, of Nebraska, author of the Nebraska square mile homestead law, is coming Into South Dakota in June to address some of the people. June will be too late for his missionary efforts. Mr. Underwood's procession will have arrived by that time and the railroads will be reaching out after the profitable traffic of a newly peopled realm. This Is going to be a great year for South Dakota. Philadelphia will witness a novel protest today, when 30,000 employees of its manufacturing establishments march to the city hall, where the theft of the municipal lighting plant is to be consummated by the city council Philadelphia does not expect to save its gas works, which are to be leased for "5 years and the $25,000,000 paid for the lease divided among the grafters. It only desires to make a demonstration to show that there Is yet existing some life and a trifling activity of conscience. The men at the head of the procession will carry noosed ropes in their hands as evidence of their belief that a number of aldermen ought to be hung. But the aldermen will not be afrali They have been stealing bo long that they know Philadelphia will stand any degree of larcenous crime. The ropes in the procession are intended ouly as a grim indulgence in pleasantry. are negroes. The annual session of the American Stock Growers' association will te opened at Denver on the 9th inst., and President Roosevelt will meet many of its members during his brief tarry in that city. An opportunity will be afforded him to talk transportat'o.i rates with men Interested in the subject. No industry in the west has suffered1 mere than the cattle growing industry at the hands of the transportation trust " parachute and guaranteed safety to ths aeronaut, even in the event of his in- ability to direct or steer. f Slowly and steadily the machine cir- j cled In one direction and then in an- j other, repeating these maneuvers ssv-' era! times. Then it headed' straight before the wind and took a sudden dive. , "He's steering downward," said Inventor Montgomery, in response to an exclamation at the sudden tumble. Then in one moment the wings turned gracefully back to a horizontal position. The aeroplane glided about In a circle, and after heading back into the wind, it mounted perceptibly. Twice the feat of sailing upward cn the air was accomplished. Gradually came the realization that the aeronaut was truly flying on wings an ! seemingly with utmost ease. The aeronaut. Daniel Maloney, had complete command cf the machine. He accomplished just what the bird accomplishes in flight without napping its wins. He sailed on the air, rose and fell and tacked one way or another, just as o the larger birds. The aeroplane, like birds, fails upon the wind; and against it, without moving it9 wings except for steering. When the needed motive power can be supplied without overweighting the apparatus the second great difficulty in the flying machine problem will be solved. It Is said the machine weighs only forty-two pounds and supports in easy flight a man weighing 145 pounds. When wings can carry the man and the needed motor everything else must depend on the ability of the man to acqiure for himself the manipulative skill whlon is given to the birds. FARM SUGGESTIONS By F. A. Scott The newspaper men of Washington are still insisting, in spite of -denials, that Postmaster General Cortelyou Is slated for the presidency of the Equitable Life Assurance society, on the invitation of its directory. Few are the men who would refuse a salary of $ 100,000 a year and it may be considered a temptation to a cabinet officer whose compensation Is honor and $8,-000 per annum. A law just created, by the legislature of New York levying a tax of 2 per hundred shares on every stock deal "is likely to cause an exodus from Wall street into the more sympathetic environment of New Jersey. The cor porations will return to the old Eod those of them not incorporated in South Dakota, the second New Jers- y The Pure Food law. The various publications of the country devoted; to the discussion of food and health topics, east and west, are commending the amended pure food law passed by the South Dakota legislature at its last session. It is also strongly endorsed by the former focd commissioner, C. P. Sherwood, whose devotion to the duties of that office resulted in the marked improvement of the quality of the food products exposed; on the South Dakota market The new law completes what the old law partially failed' to perform. It provides that the contents of a pack age must be described on the label. If j the contents are adulterated, the label must so state in plain print, and not in obecure type on a sticker attached to the label. There is no prohibition of the sale of adulterated goods, but the law insists that the purchaser shall be given full opportunity to know what he Is DavlnK for and introducing into his . kitchen. Of the new law, Mr. Sherwood says in his newspaper, the De Smet News: The use of any foreign ingredient, whether a color, a preservative, a sweetener or even another article of equal value, renders the compound illegal when labeled pure. No stickers will be recognized the original label must tell the whole truth. The law does not attempt to dictate to the manufacturer the language he shall use on his compound labels, simply that they shall not be misleading. The new law absolutely prohibits coal tar colore, iniurious nreservatives and saccharin. the use of which has heen the foundation of most of the adulterations. When this feature Is enforced and Ia-fcels are made to tell "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth," the food department will have done a work cf Inestimable value to the state. There is no legislative regulation of more importance to all the people of the state than that which seeks to protect them from the poisonous food compounds with which the market is flooded. This has been partially accomplished" in the past, with the assistance of some of the newspapers, through their publication of lists of illegal goods. Under the improved law, the package When the police board and the chief of police of Lynn, Massachusetts!, appealed to Governor Douglas for help on a recent strike occasion, admitting that they were unable to cope with the situation, his reply was that they had better resign if they could not successfully deal with crime. The answer was uttered In the spirit of the Douglas of old and it might profitably be considered by other impotent municipal beads, who possess the power to call upon all law abiding citizens to command the enforcement of law. The tendency to rely on troops, state or national, in the exercise of police regulations has earned! the rebuke it received at the hands of the Massachusetts executive. Long periods of cloudy weather is given by a German medital scientist as the cause of the unusual prevalence of cerebro spinal meningitis in central Europe. Since last October there has been very little sunshine in that quarter of the globe. Rojestvensky fltill holds hia position off Kamranh bay and nobody Is dis turbing himt neither the Japs nor the French. The fiction that he is not get ting supplies from the French port is not believed! in Japan. President Roosevelt has agreed to give the striking teamsters of Chicago an opportunity to present their peti tion asking for executive adjustment of their troubles when he passes through that city. The strikers have solicited him to take up the case andi deal with it as he did! the anthracite strike a couple of years ago. To the reception of the petition he has agreed without offering them any encourage ment, knowing that it takes two to make a bargain. The Chicago strike Is of lesser mag nitude than the accompanying disturb ance indicates. There are but 3,000 men in the ranks of the strikers, though their sympathizers are a host.

CURRENT TOPICS The imports of poultiry and eggs in to Great Britain in 1902(, 1903 and' 1904 were valued at 131,000,000, $33,000,000 and $33,500,000 respectively, the small increasa in 1904 being attributed mainly to the enhanced home production, though partly due perhaps to the hard times. The amount of money annually re ceived in Greece from Greek emigrants to the United States is assuming proportions that have attracted the attention of the Greek government, bankers and public. Greek officials estimate that over $1,930,501.93 thus reached Greece during 1903. One of the developments of Glasgow's municipal street car syttem is providing private early morning cars for bringing home dance parties. A car requisitioned for such a purpose comes at any required hour to the point nearest the place where the dance is being held and takes the dancers to any desired point on the road. - There la a curious burial custom among the Mordovinians, who inhabit the middle Volga provlns of Russia and are professedly Christiana They believe that a relative forty days after his burial returns to his old home Failing his visible return the next of kin personates him, dressed in his clothes, and profess-s to deliver sol emn messages from the other side of the grave. Driven out of New York by District Attorney Jerome, Richard Canfleld. William T. Burbridge and other gam biers are said to have formed a syndl cate to establish a $3,000,000 gambling resort in Cuba on the plan of Monte Carlo. It is DroDosed to build this American Monte Carlo at Camp Col umbla, the site selected by the United States army of intervention as the most healthful spot adjacent to Havana to pitch its tents. The site selected is thirty miles west of the city, in the province of Havana, and ground will be broken for the construc tion of the buildings and the track within six or eight months. The entire management of all the syndicate's interests, both in Havana and the province, will be given to Burbridge. Brookings, S. D., May 2. From Sioux Falls to Brookings I found! the crop outlook fully as good as around home. In fact the grass, both tame and wild, are further advanced up here on account, apparently, of more rains, and stock are out on most farms. The wheat and oats are making a good start, while much ground is being plowed now for corn, flax and millet. A good rain is coming down at present. I found things at the state agricul tural college in a most encouraging and interesting condition and during) toaay i nave visited rrots. wnson s and Mathews departments. Prof. Wilson is taking great inter est and making1 a fine showing with his cattle, swine and sheep breeding and feeding experiments, and it would pay any farmer in our state who cares to take up any of these industries to come over to Brookings and' see how well and systematically he has taken up this work, and how clearly he can ttemonstrate every feature of his undertaking; and! best of all to notice how proud he is of the work. Later on I will give a more detailed account of several of the individual specimens and some of the collections of several bunches of each kind of stock that he is experimenting with, both as to direct and cross breeding, and1 with the various kinds of feeds. The state has greatly helped' his fa cilities by erecting within the past year a $12,000 modern barn with ample proportions for about 100 head anJ hay storage of 300 tons; with cement floors, box andi single stalls, weighing scales, seed, implement', and feed rooms, and most conveniently .located. Then he is giving the matter of alfalfa and brome grass hay and pas tures a thorough test and reports most favorable results from both. In Prof. H. B. Mathews' mechanical department I was also greatly inter ested. With hira is associated Prof. Solberg, who takes direct charge of the iron and steel working and' me chanical work and instruction in that line, and it is simply wonderful how handily anxS earnestly the boys apply themselves to the forges, lathes, plan ers, gear-cutting and drilling ma chines, and such fine specimens of finished work as they turn out Is also wonderful. Prof. Mathews makes a specialty of the electrical Instruction and chemical experimenting in connection therewith. The testing of metals, natural and artificial building materials, and numerous other features of importance in mechanics and constructive educaUon. There are excellent appliances for all these experiments and demonstrations, and the department is filled to nearly its entire capacity now. I am pleased to say that I found the three able professors most willing to give out their systems cf instruction, all of which I found to be very interesting. I will look over Profs. Hanson's and Wheeler's departments tomorrow and report later on. Old Virginia Coffee New York Press: Do you know that many years ago certain folk in Virginia knew how to make good' cot-fee? Nothing but Old Government Java in befo' de wan times! The modus operandi was as follows: Parch the berries a deep brown andi while still hot mix in the whites of several eggs and also the shells. When cold and dry grind moderately fine ten pounds and place in a bag of butcher's muslin, which suspend from a hook or beam. In the mouth of the bag Insert a funnel, burying the tube in the grounds, and from time to time pour in water. Have a vessel below to catch the drip. In the process of percolation (which may require a week or ten days) the water gathers up the strength of the coffee, arriving in the vessel a deep red and as clear as crys tal. Heat it when you want a drink. That's coffee! You know the princi ple of the ash hopper.

Y., is the first administrative officer of the metropolis to endorse cordially a project for increasing the city's water supply by tapping the great lakes. The proposition come from Charles G. Armstrong, a consulting engineer of Manhattan.1 His idea is to run an immense pipe from Lake Erie, 300 miles away, to New York, through which 1,000,000 gallcns of lake water could be iconveyed! every twenty-four hours. The project appears to President Littleton to be not only desirable, but entirely feasible. But if New York is really desirous of improving its water supply, what is the use of taking half-way measures? Why should it undertake to pump water from a shallow little lake like Erie when an Inexhaustible supply of absolutely pure water from one of the greatest natural reservoirs on earth Is within reach? It will cost little more to pipe the water from Lake Michigan than it would cost to pipe it from Lake Erie, but even if the first cost should! be many times as great the longer pipe line would pay in the end.

The young and vigorous soon recuperate even from insanity. The surgeon general's reports indicate a very high recovery rate in soldiers sent home In past years from the Philippines. In older men, of course, is well to bear this in mind in inter preting the curious press dispatches from Manila. We recently have been. informed that a major of the army, for an alleged swindling of the civil government of $1,500 has been sentenced to forty years confinement in prison! A captain of engineers, for swindling the United States govern ment in Charleston, S. C, some years since, received a five years' sentence, though the amount of money Involved was a thousand times greater. There is need of some investigation, particularly as a citizen of the United States Is deprived of his constitutional right to a trial by a jury if he is accused of an offense in the Philippines.
