At The Convention.
Sioux Falls, Sept. 9th 1885.
Your correspondent, in company
with a number of delegates from
counties bordering on'the celebrated
fm ty*|ixth, arrived at the would-be
birth-place of the new stilt e of South
Dakota on the evening of the 7th,and
found that a goodly number of tie
self-sacrificing individuals who pro
pose striking terror, to the heart of
congress and plucking the tail-feath
ere from the venerable American
eagle, had preceded us.
Shortly after we arrived we could
plainly see that efforts to sectJre an
immediate adjournment of the con
mention wfiuld be in vain, but never-,
theloss it was decided to stand firm
pto those principles on which, we had
been elected,and to do what wo could
toward giving expression to the
wishds of the people of central Da
At nine Tuesday morning a cau
cus of delegates was held in Ger
mania hall for the purpose of select
ing imeumbents for the several offi
ces, and it at once became apparent
. EJpCIPS **.
that there wore not a few of tb
precocious individuals familiar!/
known as “kickers” inline ptursanbl
of the convention. It was also dwn
oQstrated that a few had determined
to make , themselves conspicuous
whenew and wherever the slightest
opportunity offered, among whom
may be mentioned Jridge Brooking,of
and Judge of Alia
nehaha, and T. J> Kanouse, of San
bbrn. After considerable wrangling
the following ofiieots were decided
upon: for president A. J. E lgerton,
of Yankton; secretary, John Cain, of
Beadle; assistant secretary, H. M.
Avery, of Minnehaha; jerge.nt-at
arms, M. B. Kent, of Elk Point.
At 12 m. the convention proper as
sembled and ratified the nominations
■ c
of the caucus. Upon taking the
chair Judge Edgerton read a very
dignified and appropriate address, in
which he characterized the honor j
thrust upon him as unexpected, un
sought and so the
show begaa. Those opposed to the
convention having previously met in
caucus and formulated a resolution
expressive of their views, now seized
the opportunity of making them
selves heard, more for the purpose of
>eing placed upon record than with
tie hope of accomplishing the end
desired. Accordingly the following
was presented:
Wh*£oas. The sixteenth legislative
assembyof the territory of Dakota
assumed the right to authorize the
calling of a constitutional convention
for that portion of the territory south
of thd forty- sixth parallel, a move
ment which ought to have its origin
irom the people themselves of that
pdHion of the territory affected
ohereby, arid
f w
Whereas, it is hot the desire of the
people of this territory that the same
should be divided and said portion
admitted seperately to statehood,
but that they desire admission as a
whole; therefore, be it •
Resolved, That this Abstention do
now adjourn sine die.
During intelligent discussion,
Kanouse, of Sanborn, moved that the
resolution be laid upon the table, he
and his colleagues having determined
to choke the matter as speedily as
possible without giving central Da
kota an opportunity to be heard.
Upen request the vote was called on
the motion to lay on the table, the
motion prevailing by a vote of 59 to
12. Those voting in the negative
were: Mason, McLeod, Dow and
Lay bourne, of Brown; Neill and
LouThien, of Grant? Andrews, of
Hamlin; Cranmer, of JQEdmunds;
Gault }of McPherson; Porter, of
worth; Tousley, of Lincoln, and
Westfall, of Coddington, the latter
explaining his vote by saying that lie
wanted the resolution discussed in-,
stead of tabled. Judge Moody then*
moved that the motion to lay upon
table be reconsidered and the motion
to reconsider be laid upon the talkie
thus forever precluding the possibil
ity of its being rferrectedyrnd also.
(** the minds of mririy, preventing
the convention from at any time
passing a lega| motion to adjourn
sine die. Tfifs was gag riile ad
ministered rin the most arbitrary
manner, and it goes far toward show
ing what we have to expect irStn our
friends in the south in the event of
being left at their mercy. It'will be
observed that the delegate from
Campbell county, Frank Alexander,
was the only member from central;
Dakota voting with the majority. At
this point an adjournment was taken
until 4p. m. r after a {sfommittee on
rules and order of business had been
appointed. ■
jUpon reassembling the committee
submitted a partial report embracing
the names of ral committees
journed untis9 a. in. in order to give
the president an opportunity to select
the mrilribers of the several commit
tees. This morning the president

sion will be a busy one. The older
members have a decided leaning to

years ago and it wST doubtless bcilio

keynote this morning by asserting
that “we should profit by the worC
of those who precedednis. Woman
