Hut then nlf a loaf, crumbs, aren't usk xxI as a square deal and a fighting hance for what we know is our one. We insisted on a square deal tor,Judas once and know now that because of his peculiar moral fibre he could never be connted on for a like stunt. And, besides we fear no club even if it be a land office register's public pat ronage cudgel, For registers come and registers go, but the Lem mon Herald proposes to keep right on being read. And, when all else is said and done, we still think a land office register has so luch to do that he can ill afford to waste Uncle Sam's time orga nizing campaigns against them that -mean well by a man that is willing to mind his own busi ness. When Dr. Phelps, candidate for state senator, was shuvwi a certain newspaper article, re ferring to hi in as the representa tive of a 'ii..lroad gang," he pulled off his coat, roiled up his oieeve, and, pointing u a scar on nis upper arm, said, "here I've got the proofs that the news papers that say that, are vicious liars. And, I've got two more sucr proofs on my body to show that my loyalty to my countrv has been proved in blood, and Stands as unassailable proof a gainst any accusations the op position may trump up." Brave be! *, and Ur 1'helps today as good a lighter, as he was s mo lSG3~as the parties that ilrst urged him to run and then ied to knife him, are finding out to their amazement. This has been a busy week at the Herald printery -on account of the primary election ballots had to trot ten out Thank goodness, they're done, and we can now turn our atten tion to the solemn pleasure of spoal.ingour political faith anent i-iutters in good old Perkins, Dr. Phelps and C. W. Stram pher both, running as they do, independently and without the sav-so of tne gang, appear to be receiving the attentions of a sort that scarce can be called gentle manly. Dr. Phelps finds that his placards have been disfigured by the writing of a contemptible lie across them, associating his name with the so-called railroad interests And this to one of the finest representatives of the old soldiers is South Dakota, and up eve of Decoration day. Egan Campaip a Trinmptaant Vindication! Tfw fMHisnt «n fwrtaii ladep eridenl Candidate for Govei* nor Blocks th? Opposition's Scandalmongery win* ever he goes. BealtKing that the vast majority of the plain republican voters of the state are determined to elevate Ceorge \V. Egan to the office of governor, the bosses are making a last desperate ef fort to defeat Mr. Egan and retain their grasp on the state. In tl ese ef forts they have resorted to the .actlcs of the political assassin and have re* ur rev ted an alleged ''record" of Mr. Egan.conveniently forgetting that the so-called "charges" contained in the i "record" were fully and effectually exploded and proven a tissue of false hood* diirning th© campaign of two years ago. Two years ago the bosses circulated thi« alleged '"record" in an effort to nrevent Mr. K/an swe^pinir the state. Himself ami frieo is proved every al legation in the "record" a falsehood, I and so satisfied were the voters that Mr v.gan's i M.

Will the Signal explain how it is that so many friends of this paper are turned down when personal and professional record was unblemished that they came so near nominating liiui to the offlce of governor that the bosses have not yet recovered from the shoe This was in 'he fac»* of an indifferent cam paign for the tvernorship mad-' by Mr, Egan, he visiting and making ad (dresses in a few counties. bile by :lie c'.os" of the presei uaigti he have visited .... dresses in practically every mntry in the state Had the bosses two years ago been a little more diligent in ciici latina the alleged "record" of Mr. Egan. Mr. E/an would have been noniated to the office of governor bv an over whelming plura itv. The circi lation of the alleged "record" at that time made votes for Mr. E^an, ir every voting precinct of the state. The same s proving to be ti e case in the present ampaign. there being tittle doubt that the circulation of the exploded and di«.|»ri\«-d co -d" by the bosses in this campaign is mak ing votes everv day or Mr. Egan. By the time the primary election is held these last-ditch tactics of the bosses will have added many thousands to the vote by which Mr. Esran on June4 will be declared the republican nom inee .'or the ottice ofgovernor. A cam aign of personalities can only result to the benefit of Mr. Egan. That he will sweep the state by one of the largest pluralities ever given a republican nomin«efor gover nor in South Dakota is the en ph&tic opinion of all disinterested observers. The feeble and disgraceful eff rts of the bosses to defeat Mr. Egt n will prove unavailing. Bonesteel—Atr.ire that the Rose bud country is goingto go for George W Egan almost unanimously, the bosses, in their desperation, again are circulating the alleged "r cord" of Mr. Egan, which was first n ade to 1o service in thecampaign agai istMr. Kgan two years ago, and which at that time was proven to consist of a tissue of absolute falsehoods. The '"r-icord" if such it may be called will tve no influence on the Egan sunporters' and on the other hand, is gaining new support from thos-e who believ( in th* 'Square deal" and do not app -ove of character assassin methods in politics. Winner—Efforts toinjurothe stand ing of George W. Egan with the voter of this part of the Rosebud country have fallen flat. Since the alleged Egan "record" was sprung by his oppo nents—the bosses—he has been gain ing votes steady, as the voteis gen erally look upon the methods of th bosses as being very unfair. Sioux Kails Special: Reports of the most encouraging character con cerning the candidacy of George VV. Egun, 'he aiiti l.oss candidiate for governor of &outh Dakota, continue to he received from every voting pre cinct in the state. The great increase Kgan sentiment over the state shows no abatement, and there is r.ot the slightest doubt that he will win the nomination at the primary election hands down The bosses have been unable to make any headway against this popular choice of the piain peo ple, and in confidence admit that George W. Egan will be a winner in June. A victory to George W. Egan will mean an end to machine and hois rule in South Dakota, and when he assumes the office in January next the office will be conductfd in the sole interest of the grert mass of common People. The bosses and there hench men, who have been sucking the life blood of the state will be without an occupation. R. 0. Richards Talks Tuesday O Richards. the original pro gressive Republican leader in this st?te and now a candidate for United State .Senator will speak at Lemmon at Opera House, Tuesdav after-noon at 2:30 o'clock, on legal party gov ernment as the first step neci ssary to ward accomplishing an educational i primary election system to subordi nate the candidate idea to the devel opment of science in government by creating an acute issue on some one public question within each party, n eaen primary election campaign. As it is now, we have an unseemine inde pendent contest between candidates over personalities from county offices to the presidency--a spectacle "nbe- COmiug our American institutions. Mr. Richards in advocatnghis pro posed primary law, has received more abuse and ridicule than any other person in the state by scheming poli ticians. bnt he is still "sawing wood' Do not fail to go and hear him.
