The Black Hills Weekly Journal. RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA, SK1TK.MIIKK I. I'.tU. Erakjshed, January 5, 1878. VOL. 07; NO.!!(i FAIR THIS YEAR HAKES ENVIABLE REPUTATION FOR THE PROMOTERS The third minimi race meeting, agricultural and stock exhibit of the Western South Dakota Fair assocla tion passed Into history Friday after noon with the winning of the big automobile race by Bob Holcomb. Like fll of its predecessors the fair was well patronized and reflected credit on the association and those who staged It. To Mayor Robinson must be given recognition for hU enth isiasm, at a late hour, In wak ins up the people of the city to the advantages of a fair, lie waa largely responsible for the initiatory eteps which, made the fair possible and collected most of the funds with which Its wheels were greased. Too much cannot be Bald in praise of the work of Orvllle Rhlnehart and his corps of assistants, who tackled an eleventh hour proposition and brought it through to a successful conclusion. It was about August 1 before the association and merchants awoke to the fact that a fair seemed desirable. Several meetings were called at which the attendance was small and lack of interest and lethargy were apparent on all sides. Hacked with a fairly liberal inscription by merchants Rinehavl went to work and staged a show and exhibit which iu many respects was the best ever seen in Western South Dakota. As far as can be learned the peo ple who patronized the fair were wel' satisfied and nothing but words of praise are heard for those who contributed to their pleasure. Flushed with enthusiasm and realizing the possibilities which the future holds for the fair, steps are now being taken to have the city take over the fair grounds and thus insure to Rapid City a fixed annual event, not dissimilar from'what the stock meetings used to toe but broader In scope and embracing all of the unparalled resources of the Black Hills and the country west of the Missouri river. In no other place in the world are its material resources grouped ia1 such close proximity to each other and to the people, Here is mining of all sorts of metals, a lumber industry, brick, tile, cement, lime and plaster, horticulture, farming in alJ of its stages incident to this latitude, fruit growing, stock raising of every kind. This mention only hits the high spots of the vast amount of material which would make an interesting exhibit at a fair. Alobridge, Aug. 29. Mobrldge business jnen an the Mobrldge Commercial club are behind a movement which it is believed here will serve to attract many people to this section of South Dakota, and prove a tremendous incentive to the bringing of homeseekers to this part of the state, by forming a fair association to take in the counties of Walworth, Ziebach, Dewey, Corson, and Campbell counties, the fair to he held- Mowbridge, the most centrally located town in the region described. At a special meeting of Mobrldge business men, a committee of representative men was appointed to consult the leading men of the five counties and get their opinion relative to the project. It is planned to organize a stock company with a capital of at least $25,000 to place the fair on Its feet. Gettysburg, Aug. 29. Sioux Indians, of the Cheyenne River agency and throughout the Indian reservation west of Forest City and Gettysburg, have set September 26 for their annual fair. This year the fair will lie at Goose creek, a few miles from Eagle Butte, In the heart of the reservation. Prizes are offered for field crops, vegetables and stock. Sioux women have prepared much fine needle and beaded work for the fair which promises to 'be the largest in the history of. the reservation. m tnniF.n.

Floral Reception Saturday, Sept. 5 Saturday afternoon, September Is the date for the annual floral rr ception given by the primary class of the Congregational church. Owing to the tiu that the old church has been removed and the new one not yet ready for occupancy, and that services are not being held in the headquarters on St. Joe street the twenty-seventh annual reception will be held on the Gossage lawn 3 Sixth street. There will be change In the general order, and no attempt at a general display of flowers will be made, but several new features will be shown, all of which will be fully explained through the columns of this paper and otherwise. Silver City Mine Give Indications of Large Return. The mining activity in the Silver City district on Rapid creek continues with unabated vigor. Prospect ing is being conducted Iu the region on a more extensive scale than for many years past and development work is .being pursued systematically in a number of places. The work be ing prosecuted iby L. A. Richards on the Grand View property is said to be meeting with encouraging results, while preparations are being made to resume operations at the old High land mill. The latter plant will be run on ore taken from a comparative ly new discovery, which is reported to afford a free milling ore of good quality, opened up on ground owned by Tom 'Gorman. The oil floatation process, intended to recover the values of the antimony ores of the district, perfected at the Rapid City School of Mines 1b standing the tests weH and is bein constantly improved upon. It is confidently believed that it has solved the .problem and that the Silver City district Is destined to be the scene of numerous big producers of gold, sil-ved, lead and antimony in the near future. (Pioneer-Times. Former Jocker Makes an Excellent Farmer. Dean Collins, of Conata, has been in the city during the past week attending the fair. Dean was born, raised and educated in Rapid City, but ia now engaged in stockraislng and farming near Conata, -where he Is quite successful along the lines mentioned. He ihrought up his horse, Mason City, and rode the animal in several races, winning second money each time. He also rode McGaa's horses in the relay race, his farmer's life not detracting from his proVess as a professional rider. AgiieulHral Display Small, Good Quality. In the agricultural display at the fair Chris Anderson had an excellent display of vegetables, grown for market gardening. G. C. Hunt surprised everybody at the fine garden display he was able to make, something anyone In Rapid City could do should he be so disposed. Work and the exercise of common sense will make It possible . The children of Commissioner and Mrs. IT. C. Cordes made a very creditable display of what children can do in the line of raising vegetables, Another collection was that of Sam Morris, on Rapid Creek. With such stuff raised here there Is no reason for noT having a good agri cultural display at. our fairs. The thing is to convince the people that we are going to have a fair.

Sunday a lame crowd visited points of interest in the canyon and last week traffic by motor equalled any of the season .It was the intention to take the motor car off the line today, but because of the continuation of patronage it will be run until further notice. Many people are leaving the can yon and ret iming home on account ot the opening of the schools, but there still are many camps open and there are a few new comers, who en joy the fall months more than those of summer in the Hills.

The pubR:- schools of Rapid City will open ou Tuesday, September Si. A fine corps of teachers has been ou- caged. the buildings are being thoroughly cleaned and every thing points to a banner school year. In accordance with the policy of the Hoard to provide the greatest efficiency in nil lines of school work and economy In tho running ex penses of the schools, the following changes will be made in the bousing of children this year: Those trades formerly taught in the old Library building on Sixth street, those in tho church on the high school grounds and in the base merit In tho Lincoln building, will be transferred to the rooms recently completed in the new high schooi building. Tho children that form erly attended the one room frame building In the Fourth ward will attend either the First Ward or the North Rapid brick building. By thus consolidating, these pupils will be under the instruction of a teacher who has one or two classes In her room, whereas in the past they were in a room with three and four class es. It Is Tery evident that a pupil in the former circumstances will be able to do superior work. Th"se changes will also be a great herefit to tho tax payer. One tea' ti er, one janitor, a great deal of fuel and lighting expenses and a vast amount of repairs on old building! will be eliminated. In addition the children are placed in more sanitary and warmer rooms where they will lf-ccive more attention and a9 a re suit better instruction.

It, was said that Joseph F. Shoe- ban, who appeared ut the Elks last. night., la the great est tenor in the United Slates. The writer has not' beard all the tenors and so cannot speak with authority, but lie Is a great tenor, nil rlchl, both in slice and voice. Ho Is supported by Mirth Carmen, , Nelson It. Shunley and Laura liner. The musical director la Arnold Iteauinoiit, and say, he can lirecf some, and play the piano right along. When he plays with his Iglit hand" be speaks with his left. and If he is playing with bis left land he gestlcnlati to the point with his right. Then If he wants to !bo particularly emphatic ha uses both hands. It wus as good as a play to wutch him, and If a couple of small boys had not quieted down he would have thrown them, into t he gallery and gone right on as though nothing had happened. It Is raid that Rapid City audiences are -unresponsive. Well, they are unless they see something good. They disci Iniinate between the me- diisre and the good. There wasn't any doubt about which It was last night, The whole bouse was as still as a mouse for fear of missing something, and then bow they did plaude! Not only was the tenor melodious, tender and full, but the base was deep, round and pure. The soprano was iiign and clear, nwoe. and full of feeling, and the contralto was rich and beautiful. The agony expressed in "11 Travatore", with its tragedy and sorrow wa foelingly portrayed, and then the change to the lighter vein In "Bohemian Girl only the more impressed one with the quality and power of expression of the quartet. In "I dreamt. I Dwelt in Marble Halls," Mirth Cur men was captivating. "Bliss For ever Past," "Then You'll Remember Me," and "Through the World Wilt Thou Fly" brought the others of the company out in delightful solo and quartet work. Hut it wa in "Martha" that the mose beautiful tones and exquisite harmony came out. The duet be- UiT" '"The Last Rose of Summer" be. (ween Mr. Shoehan and Miss Carmen was like "tho voices of angels sing ing before the throne. The spin ning Wheel Quartet" was in still lighter vein, all working up to the grand climax of the "Good Night quartet. It is no wonder people sigh for grand opera, when such perfection of tone, expression and in- t.ernretation may be heard in true combination. Misionary Will be at Presbyterian Church Sunday. Mrs. J.

MASONS FAILING TO AGREE ON KIND OF BUILDING TO ERECT Meinheis of the Jocul lodge of Masons met Tuesday evening and thoroughly discussed the iironoai- !ion of ereetlng a building. The mat-ler is now being considered in two lights, the did one which provided or the erection of a commercial ii I LI i ti k on ihe north west corner of ;i !oe and Sixth streets, the lots lo-utcd there having been purchased about three years airo. Th now proposition provides for the erection of a home building in the residential art ot the city and is an after thought of eertain members of the lodge who did not favor the erection Of a commercial bulblinir. ki- lal committee had been aniiointed io investigate and report on the ad- iintaKes and disadvantages of a home, This commute reported la favor of the home and its renort was tabled after a heated discussion. The matter now stands where It did originally, In the bands of the old building committee. Considering the hard times of the last five years some members of tb lodge were opposed to the erection of a commercial building on the site purchased and favored the homo building as It would be exempt from taxes and cost considerably less than the other. MurtUI Spirit Still lives in Itnast of Veterans. Petroit, MlHi., Sept 2. With Hags flying, bauds playing and crowds beering, veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic, marched through the streets of an encampment city today. The parade was the spectucular feature of the forty-eighth annual national encampment of the organi zation. The marchers were few In number and more burdened with the weight of years than at former en- ampments but the snine martial plrit was in evidence as the old campaigners of Grant and Sherman moved through the streets to the are of bands and the pipe and the roll of fife and drum. The line of march led through a mile and a half of lavishly decorated streets. Sidewalks and windows nil along the route were filled with beering spectators. At the official reviewing stand, whore stood Governor Ferris, Mayor Marx and many other tiottubles, the colors were dip ped and each department command er joined Commander-in-Chief Gard ner in the stand. The department of the various states marched in the order of sen iority, the veterans of Illinois leading the column. War Wireletw. Cctflnje.
