The Kadoka Press (Newspaper) - January 28, 1910, Kadoka, South Dakota/ XT t - . J > ft c/ C - Z ( t , : t THE KADOKA PRESS. VOLUME II KADOKA, SOUTH DAKOTA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 1910 NUMBER 39 SNOWFALL BULLETIN. The snowfall in South Dakota dur- in December, 1909, was considerably above normal, and averaged 15.0 in- ches. The largest amounts were re- corded in tho more elevated portions Of the Black Nills district; elsewhere over the state the snowfall ranged from 5 inches to as much as 24 inches and amounts ranging from 3 to 18 in- ches, but mostly from 3 or 4 to 10 in- ches remaining on the ground at the close of the month. The month open- ed with practically no snow on the ground except in some of the north- eastern counties, and but little in the Black Hills district. The total snowfall in the Black Hills district of the state during Dec- eember ranged from 59.3 inches at Hardy Range station, in the extreme southeastern portion of Lawrence county, to 7 inches at HillCity, Pen- nington county, and at the end of the month the snow remaining on the ground in this district ranged from 38 inches at Tinton, in the western por- tion of Lawrence county, very near the Wyoming line, to only a trace in parts of Butte,Custer and Pennington counties, a Chinook wind near the end of the month having in places caused a considerable reduction in the depth. In most places in this district, par- ticularly in the more elevated local- ities, and the gulches, the snow is well packed, and the gulches arc well filled. The accompanying tables apply wholly to the Black Hills district, the <iata beiug expressed in inches. 8. W. Glenn, Section Director. Huron, 8. D., Jan. 12, 1910. FREE DELIVERY FOR TOWNS. Folks who live in towns of a thous- and population will have all the post- al facilities enjoyed by people in the great cities, if a bill introduced in the house by Representative Griest of Pennsylvania, goes through. The bill proposes the establishment of an urb- an mail delivery service in such towns where there are second or third class postoflices and it contemplates a fea- ture of all the mail service vhich may be viewed as an extension of the ru- ral delivery while in fact it also em- bodies the principles of the city de- livery service. “There is a gap be- tween the city and rural mail deliv- ery,” said Mr. Griest, “which is liter- ally a discrimination against many millions of people residing in approx- imately 5,000 of the smaller cities or towns throughout the country. These citizens are supporting a class of post- offices which do not add to the postal deficit. The cost willhardly approx- imate $l,OOO per office per annum as bractically none of the smaller presi- • deutiai offices would require more! than two carriers, while in the ma- 1 jority of cases an adequate service! could ho accorded with . single car-, rier. The creation of an urban deliv- j cry service will be sure to result ben- eficially to the uillionsof citizens liv-, jng in the sma’ler cities and towns who just appeal to congress asking the removal of the discrimination in the collection and delivery of mail j matter.”—Journal, Rapid City. FALSE IMPRISONMENT CHARGED. Some timp ago Frank Anderson, state’s attorney of Day county, took the position that in criminal cases where a conviction was had in the circuit court it was the duty of the ; court in addition to imposing line to also tax costs of prosecution to defen- dant, and that in default of payment of costs the defendant could be im- prisoned until they were paid. He subsequently submitted this question j to Attorney General Clark, who ren- j dered an opiuinn sustaining his posi- tion. In the meantime one of the persons who had been convicted and sentenced to pay a tine and costs of prosecution, and who had refused to pay the costs and had been confined to jail for such failure commenced ac- tion against Sheriff Lindquest and State’s Attorney Anderson for false arrest, alleging damages in the sum of $5,000. To the complaint in this action the sheriff and state’s attorney interposed a demurrer on the grounds that the complaint failed to state facts suflle'ent to constitute a cause of action. In other words that when the sheriff confined the plantiff for his failure to pay the costs he simply did his duty as an officer of the country ,and that the law of the state justified him in doing what he did. The de- murrer was argued to Judge McNulty at Sisseton this week and was sus tained.—Journal, Rapid City. Call at the Fair store and get that suit Ql clothes. SAVIOUR OF HOMESTEADERS. Charles F. Weiss, wr ho was in the city Thursday from Fairpoint said the snow was ten inches deep up there in places, and ten feet in others. Fairpoint is eighty miles northeast of Rapid City, and in a section of count- ry not very well wooded. Indeed, if the settlers depended upon the wood to be found there for their fuel they would not fare very well, but there is plenty of lignite coal in that vicinity. In one there arc nineteen miners at work, seven in one and four in an- other. At Tama there is one mine in which niue men are working. One mile east of Fairpoint a man by the name of George Higgins has a coal mine from which many tons of coal are secured daily. The coal brings SI.OO, and is the saving of people of the country thereabouts. Mr. Weiss also said that the report that a man had frozen to death up there was hardly true. Near 11. O. Flats on Eight-mile creek a man was found dead, with his head smashed, and frozen, but indications were that be had fallen off of his load, and in doing so had hurt himself, his body after- words freezirg.—Journal, Rapid City. Fame and Wack Through Cook. If Cook didn’t discover the north pole, he did make a great discovery according to Stbet. Louis Tinies which recently printed the following Though Cook may have never discov- ered the pole, He discovered a man with a name that willroll From the tongue with an unctions eu- phonic smack— He discovered Attorney ¦ ¦liin;,: :i ¦ Wack. Though the heights of McKinley 1.. nev : hieved, And hie polar discoveries no more are believed, What, even though branded a faker and quack— He discovered Attorney H. Wellington Wack. Oh, Wellington Wack I H. Wellington i Wack! We don’t care a rap if Cook never ' comes back; Though he left us all mourning and holding the sack, He discovered Attorney H.Wellington Wack. West Milwaukee Shops Had Busy Year. Owing to the building of freight cars for the Pacific Coast Extension of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road the car shops of that company at Milwaukee have been exceedingly busy the past year. Box cars and other pieces of equipment in the freight line to the number of 5,685 were manufactured. If these were coupled together and placed on a single track they would form a train a little more than forty-eight miles in length. Ninety locomotives were turned out of the shops during the year. If these were apportioned to the care there would be ninety freight trains of six- ty-three ears each, the length of each train being more that half a mile. Freight cars to the number of 69,298 were repaired doting the year. These : if coupled together’ would cover more than 404 miles of traek. Ad the ninety freight trains of now equipment and there would be a con- tinuous line reaching a length of 45tl miles. An average of 5,616 persons were employed, the payroll for the year amounted to 93,361.256, giving each empk/ee an average wage of $598,50 for the twelve months HUNTER’S LICENSE Any person wishing a Resident Hunter’s License may secure the same by calling at tho Kadoka State Bank and filling out the application blank and pn'ying the necessary fees.
