Washington, D. C.—The United States government has sent a warning to Gen.

Thia announcement was made by Secretary Bryan after the latter had conferred with Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, the British ambassador, and representatives of American oil concerns. Already the Carranza officials have practically enforced an embargo on the exportation of oil by a big Eng lish company. The British ambassa dor, at the suggestion of Mr. Bryan, eent an urgent telegram to the British consul at era Cruz, which he was in Btructed to show to Gen. Carranza. As the British fleet obtains much of Its fuel from the Tampico oil fields, the posibility of Berious complications over the Carranza government's attitude la fully realized by the American govern ment. heavy a tax that they have been practically compelled to shut down their plants. $13,000X08T ON OLD GAME. ft —~_ Ksumhui City Business Man Is Victim of 8wind!e.

OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST From the Capital City, the Various State Institutions and from Many Different Parts of the Sunshine State. Wegtern Nowsptpw Union News Serrtce.'• Pierre.—Thompson,# of Minnehaha, has introduced a bill appropriating $125,000 for buildings and improve ments at the state penitentiary. The house passed its first bill of "the session Thursday, being one for the regulation of the issuance of pat ents by the state land, department. The senate took action on securing a site for a governor's mansion by the appointment of members of a joint committee. Rosebud Wants Normal School. A delegation from the Rosebud coun try asks for the location of a state normal school west of the Missouri river in the southern part of the state, the particular location to be at Bone steel. The state board of charities and cor rections ask for a million and a quar ter dollars for the general and spe cial appropriations for the institutions under their dare. Donahoe Retains Seat. The house Thursday was largely taken up in hearing the Moliter-Dona hoe contest over representative for Mellette, Tripp and Bennett counties. The special committee appointed to examine into the report on the con test brought in findings decidedly fa vorable to Donahoe. An attempt was made in the senate to make the number necessary to get bills out of committee ten instead of five. After a short but heated debate the old rule was retained by a vo.te of 30 to 10. A bill was introduced by Powell, praying for the repeal of the Richards information bureau law. Many Disappointed Members! The committee assignments which have been made are the cause of more or less discussion, many of the mem bers expressing their grief as not get ting the committees and chairman ships which they desired. The clerks of courts at their meet ing -here adopted a bill which fixes a salary for such office, with a limit of two thousand dollars for the larger counties of the state and a minimum of twelve hundred dollars for the smaller counties, and they will urge such bill as their idea of the needs of the court clerks of the state Women Have Not Registered. The fact that the women who are here working for submission of a suf frage amendment have not registered as lobbyists is being commented upon locally, by others who are so register ed. The ladies take the position-that under the lobby registration act only those who are representing any inter est,'for a compensation are subject to the provisions of the lay, and as long as they are working without any com pensation, there is no reason why they should register in the lobby book. „1 a el an on or Governor Byrne gives out the state ment that he has received notifica tion from the headquarters for the Bel gian relief work in $Tew York, that the association will repay the expense of sending parcels post or express packages of nonperishab'3 supplies for Belgian relief.

The matter of local conditions In the more sparsely settled counties of the west river country is receiving attention from several different an gles. Representative Day of Harding county is working out a proposition for local option either by county, coun ty commissioner district, or township vote for allowing livestock to run at large at all seasons of the year, this to meet a condition which would give many sections west of the Missouri the privilege they desire in localities. Another provisions 1b to allow coun ty commissioners to consolidate or ganized civil townships into one pre cinct for general election purposes and save the expense of numerous voting precincts which must prevail under Are Commission Cities Illegal, vs. Pierre.—That all South Dakota towns now under tie commission form of government are operating contrary to the constitution and that all ac*s of, such cities may be illegal is the startling possibility raised by Su preme Judge. JT. Howard Gates in & paper read before the State Bar aa eociatitm. Wfaiie Judge Gates doeB aiot state this as an opinion, he plainly raises the point and .frankly says his purpose "to calj thesa matters- to the attarotion of the legislature while mm* &P*5? iSs v* I the law which makes each organized civil township a voting precinct to it self. Another issue is that of secur ing proper care of roads in counties in which a large portion is not organ ized. V*r,. Investigations Likely. That investigation is in the air at this session1 as well as at last ses sion is becoming apparent among the members. Some of them want to know specifically how the state could save a half million dollars a year, as was stated in the report of retiring State Auditor Anderson. They think that amount is worth going after, &nd they want specific suggestions as to where this saying could be accom plished. The general belief is that there could be a material saving to the state by better business methods, but that it could be brought to any such sum is not generally credited, and the members of an investigating turn of mind are desirous of know ing just how it could be accomplished without affecting efficiency in public service. Frary Preparing Bill. Guy G. Frary, the head of the state food and drug department will prepare a bill covering the work of his de partment, one feature of. which will authorize any of his/ deputies to in spect oil and gasoline. The present law limits the number of deputies who may transact that part of the business of the department to three, and not allowing the others to carry on this work, a restriction which he desires' removed. It will also attempt to regulate the quality of kerosene, and gasoline sold in the state, and au thorize that department to investigate fires which have been caused by gaso line or kerosene for the purpose of issuance of educational bulletins showing the particular dangers to be avoided in the handling of oil and gasoline. Land Department Active. The state land department will ask the legislature to make more specific the law which authorizes sales of state lands for the location of town ship artesian wells, and school ex perimental farm sites. While these acts both authorize such sales they make no provisions for the transfer of title on the part of the state, and" this feature is asked to be covered in the act which will be presented. The issue of expense of hauling pu pils to country schools which is an is sue at practically every session, will come up again in a bill by Olson in the house in which he attempts to fix a set price for set distance, with a final limit of eighty cents per day for five miles or more of travel on the part of the pupils who are asking for travel expenses. New Committee Busy. The hew committee on assessment and taxation promises to be a busy or ganization at this session, with the measures which will be proposed by the state tax commission, and the oth er tax bills which will be presented. They are already holding meetings to consider bills on hand, and will have practically as much work as any com mittee unless it might be that on ap propriations or th ejudiciary. Wants Printing Law Amended Widlon, of Viborg, wants the print ing law amended to require the state printer, on request to provide samples oh which bids for state printing are to be let.. Under present law the samples are filed in the office of the printing 'commissioner for examina tion on the part of would-be bidders, but the new act will attempt to re quire the printer to send them out to the printer who asks for them New Lobbyists Present. New lobby representatives who are registered are C. T. Dike, of Huron, representing railway interests, and -P. L. Hansen, of Viborg, representing 'he auctioneers of the state. A new codification of the laws is being proposed, and the probabilities are for an act to secure that end. The old codification of 1901 has never been a Satisfactory one, and any bill which seeks to prepare a new codification will attempt also to provide strict reg ulations as to the manner in which the work is'to be done. A bill appropriating $30,000 for a chemical and physical examination'of the soils of South Dakota has been in troduced before the state legislature by Representative McFarland, of Wa tertown. Blow Aimed at Nepotism. Pierre.—With three bills already in troduced and another under way cov ering thp subject of nepotism, the ses sion shows indications of taking this up as one of the issues before they get through, One bill, by Stoner, attempts to carry the prohibition against the employment of relatives to county as well as state officials, while those by tlrdahl, in the senate, and Swanson, in the house, only attempt to covor fhe issue so far as state officials are concerned. it is in session so that remedial steps mi^ht be. taken, if. found necessary."
