Kaufmann Trial June 1
Sioux Falls. March 26.—At Flandreau on June 1 will begin the second trial of Mrs. Emma Kaufmann for the murder of Agnes Polrels, a girl in her employ as a servant. This
was announced today by State's Attorney Danforth, who says the circuit court will adjourn to that date after the regular session at Flandreau.
Mr. Danforth has virtually engaged as assistant a South Dakota attorney satisfactory to the people of Parkston, the dead girl's home, but has not announced his name. As Judge
Smith is to be appointed to the supreme court, it will be necessary for Judge Jones, in whose court an affidavit of prejudice was filed by Mrs. Kaufmann's attorneys, to name another trial judge.

Aged Man Believed To Be Oldest Civil War Vet in S.D. Dies
Flandreau, S.D., Dec 6.—Jesse Connor, aged 96, who died at his home in Flandreau, was believed to be the oldest civil war veteran in South Dakota, and one of the oldest in the entire northwest. He had been in failing health the past two months but was able to go to the polls and vote on Nov. 4. He is survived by his widow and one daughter and one son.
During the civil was he served in the First Battery, Minnesota Light artillery, and was promoted to sergeant on Dec. 1, 1863. He was severely wounded during the battle of Shilloh and was in an army hospital at St. Louis, Mo., for seven months.
Himself and family came to Moody county in 1879, locating on a farm, and in 1898 they moved to Flandreau where the family has since resided.
