County Board Remembers News.
The county commissioners met in regular session on the 7th inst. and one of its first acts was to carry out a program of knocking out the Hand County News as one of the offical papers of the county, which the Miller Sun stated a year ago would be done. We are informed that Commissioner Roth made a motion to appoint the News as one of the official papers for 1913, but no second was made to the motion. As a matter of fairness and right the News was entitled to reappointment, but then, what right have the voters on the east side of the county anyway that this august body is bound to respect, let alone the News' rights in this case? We at least expected an invitation over to the "scalping" but when we recall the knock-out the Miller Sun received a year ago it's editor wasn't present either --- possibly it was an oversight.

Slept In Haystack - Both Feet Frozen
Miller, S. D. Jan. 11.--- Starting from Warsaw, Wis., for his home at Lead, this state, his money running out at Huron, Ernest Kipeni, 17 years old, started to walk on west along the railroad track and slept at night in a haystack, his feet being badly frozen. He was cared for by the people of Wolsey and later they received a letter from his mother, a widow with seven children, thanking the people there for their kindness towards her boy in his time of misfortune.
Debauch Results In Frozen Hands and Feet
Howard, S. D. Jan. 11 --- With both legs frozen solid to the knees, T. C. McLaughlin, aged about 50, was found after lying all night in an exposed place near a local elevator. McLaughlin had been drunk and was ordered out of town by the marshall. He started for the depot, but in his befuddled condition missed his way and landed at the elevator, where, too drunk to walk further, he sank to the ground beside the building. When found the next morning he was almost dead One of his hands and arm were frozen. He has been taken to the county poor farm where every effort is being made to save his life McLaughlin's home is at Artesian.
Recall Launched Against Entire City Government
Rapid City, S. D., Jan. 11 --- A Petition which has been in circulation aksing for the recall of three members of the board of city commissioners has been amended so as to include the whole board and Mayor Rugg, who was elected to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of Mayor Jackson, who has removed to Panama, where he has large interests in coffee production.
The first petition called for the recall of Commissioner of Streets Thomas Hale, Commissioner of Water James Brennan and Commissioner of Finance Dr. G. C. Redfield. This petition received the requisite number of signers and was to have been presented at the last meeting of the board. Another element of sociiety in Rapid City, however, came to the front and asked that the petition also include the names of Mayor Rugg and Police Commissioner Joseph Jay. The latter have gained the disapproval of that portion of the business of the city that catered to the women inmates of Coney Island, a resort just within the city limits. Mayor Rugg and Commissioner Jay, backed by the other members of the board, cleaned up the Island January 1, thus depriving the city of $300 monthly revenue derived from fines regularly paid by the disorderly houses.
