Mr. Gensinger was formerly from north ern Indiana and the past seven years has lived and farmed in South Da kota, thus giving him the advan tage of understanding eastern condi tions and discussing in an intelligent way the advantages of conditions here compared with thoßjs of the east . In discussing the immigration question the present season he said: "South Dakota and Indiana will each send their full quota of homeseekers. As for investment, this field is re garded as the best in the state at the present time.

Late Legislators Cannot Become Can didates for State Offices. TACOMA, March 22.—Because of the salaries increase no members of the state legislature can become a candidate for any state office at the next general election. This bars Speaker Falconer of Snohomish, Sen ator Poison of Chehalis and Senator Paulhamus of Pierce, all of whom have been spoken of as possible can didates for governor. The salary of the governor was raised from $4000 to $6000. Section 12 of article II of the state constitu tion says: "No member of the leg islature, during the term for which he is elected, shall be appointed or elected to any civil office in the state which shall have been created or the emoluments of which shall have been increased during the term for which he was elected." The language is plain, say good constitutional lawyers. They add that Governor Mead could not have de vised a better method of blocking the progress of such a formidable oppon ent as Speaker Falconer. It will be amusing to watch an attempt to shelve Falconer without his consent. Of course, the bar that may shut him out of the governorship bars him also for lieutenant governor for the salary of that office was raised from $1000 to $1200. LOCAL AND PERSONAL Walter M.

A movement has been inaugurated by the North American of Philadel phia to ascertain the opinions of the people all over the United States as .to what President Roosevelt should do at the end of his present term.
