Postmaster General Hitchcock,
according to a rumor from

If we read Mr. Hitchcock's con

he has grown tired of something

clubs of the state took a crack at
the railroad commission during
its annual session in Presho, it
aroused the people to a realization
that they have elected something
that was doing nothing more
strenous than drxwing salary. It
was the cue for papers through
out the state to take up their
local grievances which should
come under the inspection of the
raliroad commission and since that
time the commission has come in
for more or less drubbing. Just
at a time however when affairs
were cooling off then along eomes

the state in annual convention,
and by resolution they heap more
fuel on the fire started in Presho

somewhere in the conduct of the
commission, otherwise the com
plaints would not be so numerous,
and inasmuch as there is so much
dissatisfaction all over the state
there is little doubt but the next
legislature will revise the com
mission and make provision for
establishing responsibility for its
conduct of affairs.—Sioux Falls
