E. I. LAMP*.,
South Dakota,
to the fact that I am interested
in some of the farming land inside
of the city limits, they are in er
ror. Now I wish to say that I
have no selfish motives in oppos
ing the new plan. While it seems
to be the disposition on the part
of some of those who :desire a
change, to'make this the issue—if
such is the case it might confuse
the public mind oh this important
question. The taxing of farming
lands inside the city limits is not
the issue, and cannot be made the
issue as ample provision is made
for the protection of the rights of
those who are so unfortunate as to
own larming lands within the city
limits. Section 7 of chapter 86 of
the Session Laws of 1907 of South
Dakota, amply provides for the
protection of all rights given in
the old charter. Said section of
the poposed new law reads as fol
lows:
& LAW A PROTECTION.
"All rights and property of
every kind and description,
which were vested in any mu
nicipal corporation, under its
former organization, shall lie
deemed and held to be vested
in the same municipal corpor
ation, upon its being incor
porattd under the provisions
of this act but no rights or
liabilities either in favor of
or against such corporation,
existing at the time of so be-'1
coming incorporated under
this act,and no action or pros
ecution of any kind shall be
affected by such change, but
the same shall stand and pro
gress as if no change had
been made."
Before proceeding to argue in
favor of against the proponed
chang*vX wish to say that 1 would
be glad to- discuss the questidn
ofthe" taxation of farming lands
within the city limits,on its mer
its"—either thru the columns of
the City-papers or otherwise.
TAXATION NOT ONLY THING.
The thing 1 object to is the mak
ing of .tfee taxation question a
scapegoat to occupy the ptablic at
tention to, the Neglect of the aaore
weighty matters of so radical a
change in our «ity govertfment.
With others I listened with in
terest to the speakers,hardly know
ing whether 1 was in favor or
against the proposed change but
after looking over our old charter,
and carefnlly reading the import*
ant Actions: of the South Dakota
Session la^vs of 1907, under which
the "commission" plan is pro
posed, 1 fun against the poposed
chang^.vThere are undoubtedly/
some g68d features In the new
law, 4bd great many things that
might In tl^ory look well, bnt in
practice fa}J ]£AR short of the slo*
gadrlfnich Aould be ibe motto of

fore so importHiij.a atep is taken
a!nd to this'end would suggest
that those wjffi ate honestly and
disinterestedly 'favoring the
change, publish for the informa
tion of the public, the important
sections governing the Incorpora
tion of eities undef the "commis
sion" plan, namely, Sec. 1 to Sec*.
53 inclusive of Chapter, 86 of the
Session Laws of 1907 of South Da*,
kota. The remainder of this chap
ter does not vary materially so
far as 1 can see (£y hurriedly
glancing thru it) from the old
charter, or powers granted by
citiss under the usual form of gqy
ernmen$Sjj|
PEOPLE'WmL INVESTIGA^t.
1 might comment adversely on
some of the most important of
these sections but 1 will refrain
from so doing at this time, know-'
ing that the intelligence of our
citizens is unsurpassed by the peo
ple of any city in a state that
boasts of the lowest percentage of
illiteracy tof any state in the union
and are amply qualified to form
their own opinions after they have
had the privilege of careful inves
tigation.
Is there an existing emergency
in our city affairs chat would call,
for such haste in so IMPORTANT
a matter?, Sb far as 1 can learn
none of the .large cities can make
the showing of so low an indebted*
ness aB the city of Watertown. Tho
present city indebtedness is ap
proximately $38,000 while the
present charter limits the indebt*
eness to $75,000. The present ar
rangement of our schools,, under
independent school district^ has
proved adequate to supply the
wants of our schools. I understand
that the Bchool indebteness is ap
proximately $90,000 making the
total indebtedness of the city,
something like $138,000. Where
is the city in the state, the size of
Watertown, that can make so good
a showing? This has been done
under the present form of gov
ernment, the much assailed char
ter, which no doubt, has imper
fections, but as the immot^al
Shakespeare,has truly said: we
had better bear these ills we have.
than to fly to others we know
of."

SIGN. OF DISTRESS.
Watertown People Should Know
How to Read and Heed Then.-
,—
Sick kidneys give many signals
of distress.
The secretions are dark, contain
a sediment,
Passages are frequent, scanty,
painful.
Backache is constant day and
night,
Headaches and diszy spells are
frequent.
The weakened kidneys need quick
help.:
Don't delay! Use a special kid
ney remedy.
Doan's Kidney Pills cure sick
kidneys, backache and urinary dis
orders.
Watertown evidence proves this
statement.
Frank Bennett, 701 n. Oak St.,
Watertown, 8, Dak., says: "I
have the great&t confidence in
Doan's Kidney Pills and strongly
recommend them as a reliable
kidney remedy. For a long time
my kidneys were disordered and a
friend, hearing of my suffering,
advised me to try Doan's Kidney
Pills. I :obtained 'a box at Tar
bell & Williamson's Drug Store,
and their usexmred me promptly.''
