What the'Constitution Makers are
Doing for a Lost Causer
Sioux Falls, Sept. 16,1885.
The convention still drags its weary
leilgth along, and, from present appear
ances, we should judge that it will con
tinue to drag its aforesaid weary length
for at least ten days from the present
writing. Action ujxm all matters is
slow, so slow, indeed, that many of the
members ar# becoming weary of the
monotony and propose feaving for
home the latter part of the week. For
instance, the entire forenoon session to
day in committee-of-the-whole was
consumed in discussing two sections of
the report of the legislative committee.
Verily it appears that there are men in
this convention who, fearing they may
never have another opportunity to be
come conspicious, are determined to
inflict themselves upon a long-suffering
audience on the slightest provocation—
and sometimes without any provocation
at all. But it should not be inferred
that the convention is composed solely
of this pestilential class. There are
men here who compare favorably with
any in the United States —men who
make their presence felt and whose
opinions, when expressed, carry more
weight with their associates than the
windy platitudes of the more ambitious.
We cannot but see that many of those
who have heretofore been prominent in
territorial affairs have maintained their
positions by sheer cheek and a persistent
pushing to the front. But tlieif days
are numbered and we predict for them
a speedy relegation to their proper
Since our last letter very little has
been accomplished, but one report, that
of the committee on hiilitary affairs,
having been approved and engrossed.
Several other reports are now in readi
ness, however, and the next few days
will see considerable business dis
patched. From present indications we
should judge that the constitution fin
ally prepared by the convention will be
a creditable document, the principal
regret being that it can be productive
of so little good. Its legislation upon
matters more directly effecting the
people will be satisfactory in the main,
a strong manifestation having already
been made in favor of restricting rail
road corporations, prohibiting special
legislation and preventing members of
the legislature fJtom accepting consid
erations to bias their official actions.
The prohibitionists are getting to the
front and displaying considerable
alacrity in the furtherance ofltheir
hobby, yet it is stiLL probabLC that the
question wiLL be submitted to die peo
pLe in a seperate cLause, many of the
more poLitic being afraid to burden
th§. constitution with anything that
might tend to bring out an opposing
vote. Yet there are not Lacking those
who want it engrafted in the consti
tution or dropped aLtogether, not be*
ing content that the peopLe sbouLd say
for themselves whether or not they de
sire to Live under its There
ate fanatics in every cause.
The democratic members are cLam
orous for a representation,
CLause, and it is not impossibLe that
a proposition to that effect will be
aLso submitted separate Ly.• To. this
there shouLd be no objection, for, as
the peopLe are sovereign, no body
shouLd take unto itseLf to say whether
they do or do not favor a particuLar
subject when their reaL feeLiugs can
be ascertained so easily.
By next week we hope to report some
thing more defiuate, but at the present
time any .assertion in regard to the
action of the convention is little more
than mere supposition. Mac.
Horses working in the field require
watering more than three times a day.
When, a horse plunges its head deep
into the trough to drink, it \s injurious
ly thirsty, and has been suffering. While
the owner visits the water jug kept In
the shade about once every hour, he
scarcely' ever th nks of his team, labor
ing in the dust and suffering from t first.
It is a good plan to carry a Supply of.
water to the field for the horses ou a
light drag which is as easily taken as
to drive the horses or lead them to the
field in harness alone, and it would Iw
a grateful change to carry a bunch of
fonder along, to give them a mouthful
when they rest*‘at times. Regularity in
watering "horses is a point which ought
to be carefully observed, because Mipy
will worry, When thirsty, until relieved.
Soft water for drinking purposes is
preferable to hard water. —Avneritoh

The yield of wheat in this township
as far as threshing has been done, is
much below the estimates made a few &
weeks ago—w.e should say, as far as has
been reported to us, from 12 to 18
oushels per acre—a fair average would
be 15 bushels, some small patches ‘
may have produced 20 bushels, but it
is an exception to the general return
in large areas.

The following paragraph which wo
transcribe from an eastern paper, bias
the merit of sound reasoning:
“Prohibitionists do not believe in the jf|
“taxation and regulation” theory. Tlieyfl
believe if a mad dog were turned loose
with a high license collar around his g|
neck, a big tax receipt on hm back, and
a revenue stamp tied to hrs tail, he
would be a mad dog still. Jlis uaturd
would not be changed, and his bite
would be as deadly as ever. Just sp
thqy believe the dram-shop is a dram
shop ever and always* and that it will
do the same deadly work .when plas
tered all over with tax receipts inside
and that it will when the siA®j
“free whisky” swings over the door. . lt£
nature will not be ehauged. Thcse
is but one way to render either mad
dog or dram-shops harmless, kill it—
