The Stanley County Fair
The Fourth Annual Stanley County
Fair has passed into history. The
fair was advertised for three days but
on the evening of the first day a rain
set in and continued Thursday and
Friday making it impossible to carry
out the program for these days.
Wednesday was cloudy and a dis-
agreeable wind blew from the south
throughout the entire day yet a large
crowd turned out in the afternoon to
witness the attractions provided for
their entertainment. The program
started with a ball game between
the Fort Pierre team and the lo-
cal team. The visitors were strength-
ened by the best players along the
Northwestern and both teams put up
a fipe article of ball, playing the best
game seen here this season. Fort
Pierre won the game by a score of
3to 0. The races were good, close
and exciting and Prof. Runyon put on
the novel Hippodrome act, riding two
bareback horses at full speed half
way round the track. In the evening
Sherry Comedy Co. put on a perform-
ance at the Opera House to a crowd
limited only by the size of the house.
The only number on the program
for Thursday and Friday that was
carried out was the address by Hon.
John F. Hughes, of Fort Pierre, who
delivered an address at the Opera
House Thursday afternoon on “The
Possibilities of Stanley County.”
The fair was continued until Satur-
day and despite the fact that but a
small amount of advertising could be
done a large crowd was present and
enjoyed the day. The sun shone
bright and the weather was ideal. A
ball game that furnished much amuse-
ment was played between the marri-
ed and single men, the former win-
ning by a score of 14 to 4. The race
program was complete and| Prof.
Runyon again put on his Hippodrome
act. The most novel feature of the
program was the riding of a bucking
broncho without saddle, bridle or
Both Friday and Saturday evenings
a dance was given at the Opera House.
Music was furnished by the Shimke
Bros. Orchestra of near Philip.
The Kadoka Band furnished music
and received numerous compliments
on the excellent music thev played.
The exhibits in every department
were fine and far above expectations.
The exhibits in the agricultural de-
partment being extra good and a sur-
prise to our eastern visitors.
In spite of the rain the fair was suc-
cessful and the large crowd of out of
town visitors were highly pleased
with the exhibits and entertainment.
Next week we will publish a com-
plete list of the premium awards.
In Favor of Jackson and Sterling.
The Bad River News, of Ph ilip,
ouotes the following from the Capa
‘The most important question which
we of Lyman county must decide is
the question of dividing this county.
It is the most important for the reas-
on that it most directly affects us as
to progress, improvements and taxes.
“We live in Lyman county which
is nearly one hundred miles long and
thirty miles wide; in area as large as
the states of Delaware and Rhode
Island combined, and larger than the
state of Maryland.
“Ina county as large as Lyman
county it is absolutely impossible to
get the most efficient county govern-
“The officers are far removed from
the people. Much work must be done
by deputies. This means a decrease
in efficiency and responsibility. In a
small county the officers are closer to
the people and respond to popular de-
I mand more quickly.
“This is the time to divide.”
If the News endorses this sensible
opinion from the Capa Hustler, and
we suppose itdoes or the article would
not be quoted, we hope it will be
consistent and follow the same logic
in division of Stanlev county.
Let’s take a look at the territory.
Lyman county has an area of 68
whole townships and 15 fractional
ones; lowa county, as proposed by
the Philip boosters, would have 70
whole townships and 12 fractional
ones. Therefore, if the News wishes
to be consistent it must advocate a
smaller division of Stanley county
than the two county out of western
Stanley larger by 12 townships than
Lvman county, which they admit is
too large for efficient government and
say should be divided.
Some time ago the News had con-
siderable to say about somebody’s
ox being gored.
“In a county as large as Lyman
county it is impossible to get the
most efficient county government.”
You bet it certainly is. And yet
Philip people wish us to create a new
county out of western Stanley that
willbe still larger than Lyman county.
If we want county division that
will give us more efficient govern-
ment we should vote for the organ-
ization of Sterling and Jackson coun-

We do not expect the Philip people
will agree with uh in thia as they
have themselves well drilled in the
modedt opinion that “all things MUST
come to Philip.” But Philip in work-
ing for Philip and not for the good of
the farmers <|f western Stanley county.
The farmers votes are going to con-
trol this county division election, how-
ever, and we have faith that they
willdo a good job of it by voting for
a division that is practicable, and
willgive efficient service in county
government and be beneficial to all,
instead of cutting off more than 80
townships from the west end of the
: county which would make us extra
I expense without benefiting anyone
except a few Philip business men and
a lot of eastern men who own sand
I dunes, gravel pits and cactus knobs
