E. A. Weir informs us that ho in
tends ts fence 273 acres of his land east
of town, put down a well and erect a
windmill so as to use it for pasture pur
poses. Being so close to town it will be
very convenient for people in Harrison
who desire to keep cows.
The social at the residence of H. T.
Conley on last Thursday evening was
well attended and a pleasant evening
spent. The valentine reading was a
feature of the evening which caused
much merriment, and the taffy-pulling
created a good deal of fun.
A. W, Mohr received a carload of
goods and stock lost Saturday. There
were some excellent horses in the lot,
which Mr. Mohr took to his farm north
of town. They were brought through
by that gentleman's father-in-law, who
we understand contemplates locating in
On last Thursday the fine roller
mills at O'Neil were destroyed by fire.
The loss is estimated at 1100,000. The
mills must have been a good investment
for they will be rebuilt at once. If a
mill of that size pays at O'Neill there in
no question but a good return on the
money invested in a mill at Harrison
would be realized.
In speaking of the arrest of the man
charged with stealing a house in An

occurred so that it appeared John A.
Pratt. It should have been simply John
Pratt John A. Pratt is a resident of
Antelope precinct and was not at all
connected with the affair, nor is he a
relative of the party arrested.

In the matter of the men arrested
in White River precinct as mentioned
in our last issue, a change of venue was
taken by the defendants from Justice
Mcintosh to Justice Maine, and on Sat
urday they were dismissed by him.
They were at once arrested again on a
charge of assault and battery and taken
before Judge Barker. A continuunce
was asked and granted until Wednes
day. At that time a jury was asked for
by the defendants and in the afternoon
the hearing was had. The jury returned
a verdict that the charge was hot sus
tained by the evidence and the men
were released. There is no question but
that Shay was pretty well pounded, but
it could not be proven who did it nnd so
there was nothing for the jury to do ex
cept to find as they did.
A letter from Arthur Weir, who is
at Newcastle, to his brother, E. A. Weir,
of this place, states that the B. & M.
surveyors are at Newcastle with in
structions to make a permanent survey
for a line to Buffalo. That would indi
cate that the B. & M. means to make
the Newcastle line an important one and
as it passes through a portion of Sioux
county our people will be certain to re
ceive some benefits therefrom. The in
dications are also good for the extension
of the Elkhorn line passing through Har
rison, and also for the closing of the gap
between the Elkhorn and the U. P., and
those will both have a tendency , to , help
this section of the country, and will
make this one of the most important
lines of road in the state, us it would
make direct railroad connections be
tween South Dakota, Nebraska and Col
orado. J. F. Pfost began to sow wheat last
week and already has a pretty good
acreage in the ground. Others are pre
paring to begin seeding in the near fu
ture, and the indications are a Inrge
amount will le raised the coming sea
son. This brings the mill question up
again. A letter was received by The
Journal, from Mr. Thomas stating that
his brother, who was to be associated
with him it the mill here should he de
cide to locate, was not in favor of a
steam mil, so that the prospects of get
ting him to erect a mill are not very
good. Now is the time to see if some
one else cannot be found who wants to
go into the milling business. With coal
as c heap as it is here and the excellent
quality of wheat grown in Sioux county
there is no question but that a steam
mill at Harrison would prove an excel
On last Saturday an unusally large
number of farmers were in town and a
good deal of business -vas done. Before
night, however, the supply of water in
the public reservoir became exhausted
atd it remained so until Monday. There
appears to be something radically wrong
in the methods adopted to keep a supply
of water on hand. The weather has
been so that the pump could be run at
any time and a supply of wood was on
hand so that there was no excuse for let
ting the supply become exhausted. It
would be a bad state of affairs if a Are
should break out When there was no
water, and every property owner should
urge that plenty of water be kept on
hand all the time. Then it is a bad plan
to let the supply of water become ex
hausted so that the farmers cannot get
water for their teams. When a farm
er comes to town from Ave to thirty
miles distant it is not very pleasant for
him to find that he cannot get water for
his team and he does not feel like spend
ing his money with the merchants. It
is to the farmers that the merchants
must look for their trade and if they do
not treat them right tliey will only
come here when obliged to and it is to
the interest of all that every effort be
made to induce the farmers to come
her. If the parties who have the con
tract to run the pump do not fulfil their
contract let them drop the work and let
some one else take hold of it who will do
so. This town ha no cinch on tlie trade
of the fanners and care must be taken
or many of them will cease to come
her. It is about tlm that a cluing
was made in the matter of keeping a
supply of water 00 hand.

The gold excitement has been run
ning quite high about town for a few
days and a majority of the men have a
sample of quartz which they have
picked up somewhere and a number of
tests have been made. A good many be
lieve that there is gold in paying quanti
ties to be found within a few miles of
llarrrison and it does not look at all un
reasonable. It is claimed that the Hat
Creek basin was at one time covered
with water and the Black Hills formed
the north boundary and the pine ridge
just north of Harrison formed the south
boundary of the body of water. With
all the mineral wealth found in the
Black Hills it would be strange if some
valuable mineral deposits were not hid
den in the hills on this side. We under
stand that a number intend taking min
ing claims in the near future and will
begin active operations in a few days, so
it will not be long until it will be known
for certain what is to be had in the gold
fields of Sioux county. It is to be hoped
tfiat the most sanguine hopes of the gold
hunters will be realized.
