VOL. V. NO. 52
Week'* Doing* of Our Body of Law
Makers at the Capital City
Pierre, Feb. 27.—Committee re
ports are all in, members have
made up their minds on most of
the important issues, and the leg
islature is turning out laws like it
was paid by the piece. The ap
propriations committees have
agreed on the general appropria
tions bill carrying about $2,200,
000. The budget for the support
of the administrative offices
amounts to $582,000 for charitable
and penal institutions, $875,600,
and for educaton, $672,100. These
suras are for the two years till the
next legislature and are exclusive
of special bills for improvements,
new buildings, etc. The general
bill two years ago amounted to
$1,900,000. The legislature has
been very conservative in its ex
penditures, and has been forced to
cut down some of the departments
to almost less than is necessary
for efficient administration.
Two proposed primary bills have
been put to rest during the week.
Bigelow's combination of the gen
eral and primary elections aroused
very favorable comment on the
part of all, however the house felt
that it was too radical a change,
and turned it down. Both houses
killed the Richards primary Satur
day. Mr. Richards was at a hand
with an initiative petition signed
by eight thousand, and the secre
tary of state sent it immediately to
both houses, who will enact it with
out question. Mr. Richards is
said to have purchased a sixty
horse power auto, and as soon as
the roads and weather will permit,
will begin a systematic campaign
of the state-
Apportionment is causing a good
deal of discussion. The committee
apportionment bill, which seems
to have been drawn with the ut
most rairness, is being attacked in
some places because it could not
give every community the repre
sentation which it desired. It
passed the house without amend
ment late Saturday. The senate
has deferred action on it two differ
ent times, and many express the
fear that it will continue to do so
until after adjournment. There
are many members that would just
ae soon see this as not, for it would
mean that a number of the eastern
couuties would maintain their pres
ent delegation for another session.
Both house and senate have
enacted the electric headlight bill.
There was no decided opposition
in either house. The members
felt that the vote of last fall was
no true exDression of the peoples
will, and that it was a valuable life
saving device.
The house killed the Kerr-Mil
lett immigration commissioner
bill, many farmers believing it to
be class legislation for the benefit
of the real estate men. Its friends
very warmly championed it as a
necessity, for if we do not adver
tise ourselves, the neighboring
states which do maintain publicity
bureaus will get far ahead of us
in wealth and population.
The herd law, of which so much
ha£ been heard io the past was ex
tended across the state by the Wy
man bill which passed the senate
during the week. It requires that
the cattlemen guard his stock by
herding of fences, or pay damages
for crops destroyed.
The senate, with one vote to
spare, voted to submit the su ft rage
question to the voters at the next
election. The amendment was
ably championed by Senator Hen
ault, of Custer, a badhelor, who
bas been promised a wife if ha will
put the amfndment through the
house has pre­
viously turned down a proposition
Two penal reform bills, on the
indetermediate sentence, and the
other Sherman's parole of lifers
after thirty years of service passed
the house, and the latter the senate
as well.

Abundant Moisture Predicted
Isaac H. Chase has lived in the
Black Hills for thirty-five years
and as many are aware, he has
been a close observer of weather
conditions, perhaps more so than
any other man in the Black Hills
section, and speaking of the past
winter, he says: "The weather
conditions have been indentical
with the spring of '77 and '78 and
had in the spring of *78 more
moisture than we have ever had
since in the history of the Hills.
More moisture and better crops.
And we will have an abundance of
moisture this year. 1 am confi
dent of this-
look for another
just such a spring this year as we
had in '78 and in my opinion no
one need worry oyer any probable
lack of snow or rainfall."—Rapid
