Arthur Linn, who served the popoeratio party aa commandant of the Soldier's Home at this place for a brief time, and who has never conduct ed himself like anything but a popo qrat (and we say it with most humble apologies to the rank and file -of that defanot party), is up to his usual dirty work in trying to do harm to the republican cause. Here is what he says in the last issue of the Canton, Leader—as shown to us by one who re ceives a complimentary copy of his paper here, and does not relish it. Linn says: "Railroad Machine At Work.—It is reported from a reliable souroe that Ex-Congressman Martin rode to the machine pow wow at Mitchell in a private oar furnished free of expense. The average passenger coach is good enough for the average citizeus of tbe state but boss Martin had to ride in a special oar furnished for a special purpose." It is not necessary to denounce that as a contemptible falsehood, for Lmu knows it as well as everybody else. But it shows what kind of anti re publicans are among the riiiy lenders who are opposing the SUUVHI-I, RE publicanism of South DHkmU Linn counts as one of Coe I. UnuvtuniV chief advisers and leuders. "PEANUT POLITICS" FOR YOU. Tbe STAR last week referred to the fact that, au effort was madi? at the meeting of the republican btato central committee by the stalwarts present to pass a resolution endorsing Secretary Taft for president, but the insurgents would not have it that way and intro duced a substitute resolution endors ing Taft for president and hitchiug on a resolution endorsing Crawford for U. S. senator. The insurgents had a majority of the committee and had their way, refusing to permit the Taft resolution to be voted upon by itself, as they wanted Crawford pulled through in the same company with Taft. It is well known that Mr. Crawford could not expect a unani mous vote, and could not get it even by hanging ou to the Taft boom, for no man would thus stultify himself by voting for Mr. Crawford when he was opposed to him. Now comes the in surgent machine of the state with a circular letter sent broadcast over the state in which they print the resolu tions adopted and then say: "The above resolutions were voted against by all the Stalwart members ot the State Central Committee, includ ing Senator Kittredge's Private Secretary, who attended the meeting with five proxies, which clearly proves that the Stalwarts are not for Roose velt or Taft unless it carries Senator Kittredge's endorsement with it. Which simply means that the Stalwarts are for Kittredge first and anybody for President, otherwise they would have voted for the above resolution. The fact that they did not simply proves their insincerity." Now we submit to all honest in surgents themselves that tbe above quoted statement is a direct misrep resentation. The stalwarts were the first, to declare for Taft and have all along consistently been doing all in their power to advance his candidacy, secondary only to Roosevelt. Senator Kittredge as early as May, 1007, de clared himself for Taft, with the lull knowledge from the White House that President Roosevelt, positively not. again bo a candidate. For ft'#/ At the same time, and .all the time,: until they were foroed to see beyond any doubt that South Dakota was over whelmingly favorable to Taft, the in sQcgents have been opposing Taft, de clkring that he was a "corporation candidate,n and saying all sorts of con temptible things about him. And now beoause the'stalwarts did not vote for the resolution with the Crawford at tachment—beoause they did not vote for Crawford when they favored Kitt redge—beoause they did not vote them selves as bare-faced liars—the in surgent machine comes forth and deolares that the stalwarts are in sincere in support of Taft. If there is auy demagogueism in politics, or any such thing as "peanut politics," this must be-a chunk of it. THE ROOSEVELT POLICIES, "I do not for a moment believe that the actions of this'administration have brought on business distress so far as this is due to local and not worldwide causes, and to the actions of any particular individuals, it is due to the speculative folly and flagrant dis honesty of a few men of great wealth, who seek to shield themselves, from the effects of their own wrong doing by ascribing its results to the actions of those who have sought to put a stop to the wrongdoing. "But if it were true that to out out rottenness from the body politic meant a momentary oheok to an unhealthy prosperity, I should not for one moment hesitate to put the knife to tbe corrup tlon. "On behalf of all our 'people, on be half no less of the honest man who earns each day's .livelihood by that day's sweat of his brow, it is necessary to insist, upon honesty in business and politics alike, in all walkt. of life, in big tilings and litt.le things upon just and 11- dealing as between mail and man." The stalwarts have their lighting iiarti on, and Mi'. Crawford has already ix-juii i.ii see tl-.e beginning of tho eud Judged strictly tv platform standards, lminating the matter of achievement, t.h« Sioux l^ils man has Mr. Crawford left at tbe post. And those who hear th» two men on the stamp during the campaign will fast agree with this view. Mr. Orawfosd is abusive, querulous, faultlinding, and cheap. Mr. Kittredge is bruiuy, logical, fair digu-i'fied but he knows how to use tbe language aud he states his case in a way which appeals to tbe people. At tbe Mitchell meet ing, the seuator was giveu an ovation that brought a suspicious moisture to his eyes. Mr. Kittredge is accustomed to abuse but he isn't used to applause. —Vermillion Republican. Why not send a Taft delegatiou to Chicago with Senator Kittredge at the head of it.—Huronite. Wouldn't it be a good plan to include Martin and Burke? They also have a national acquaintance aud with Senator Kittredge and five other good stalwarts who are enthusiastic Taft supporters and believers in the Roose velt policies, will make a good repre sentation for South Dakota at the National Convention. MEANT WHAT HE SAYS. Tbe Argus-Leader says that "Mr. Crawford promised an qualization of taxes. The outcome shows *an increase in taxes to the farmer which in several oases amounts to more than THIRTEEN times the increase placed upon the railroads.'' If tbe Argus Leader means to intimate that tbe rate of taxatL in any case in this state has been increased thirteen times as much as railroad taxes, the Argus-Leader deliberately lies. If it does not mean to intimate this, it deliberately misleads its readers. In either case tbe Argus-Leader is guilty of a petty piece of chicanery which is unworthy of a newspaper which is pre tending to shape political opinion upon fair and reasonable grounds. The Argus-Leader is bereby asked to explain exactly what it means by the statement quoted above.—Arlington Sun. We trust that oui dear brother of the Arlingtou Sun will not lose bis temper and get cross, but the Argus would I Leader meant, exactly what it said, as it usually does.

In other words the farmers were increased 'In taxes for state purposes thirteen times as muol} as the railroads. We do not know how to state it any dearer. The nervous editor of the Son nay not understand^ this but the farmers in this county who pay the taxes do, and if ,they do not take it out of Mr. Crawford's hide wheq-^une comes, it will be because they are more for giving than most men. As a plain matter of fact the farmers of the state were played to a frazzle in state taxes, and they are fast beginning to find it out. We know of three farmers in one township in Beadle county, all of whom voted for Mr. Crawford before and all of whom are against him now because of .his broken promises, his prodigal waste of the public money and his robbery of the taxpaying farmer. Is tkis clear enough to suit the Sun T—Argus-Leader. State Horticultural Gatherings. Belle Fourohe, S. D. Feb. 8,1906. Pub. Star:—Absence at the ohicken show in Dead wood has delayed my answer to your favor of Neb. 5. No premiums on apples were offered, by the State Horticultural Society as stated by some papers. The Black Hills had twice as many apples as were shown by east of the river people, and our exhibit surpassed theirs in every point. Delegates said that our splendid exhibit uf apples won us the meeting for next year. Mrs. Thompson, of Butte County, had largest and finest apples, and Mr. Robertsoq/of Fall River, was a close second. Mrs. Thompson has nearly always won first prize at our fair here even when such expert judges as Prof. Hansen, award tbe prizes. The meeting of the State Hbrtlcult ural Society, at Dead wood, next Jan. will be a great educational factor in fruit growing here. Auy fruit\ grower attending these meetiugs will gain as much knowledge adapted to his wants, as he would lu other lines by attend ing a short course at one of our agri cultural colleges. Such men as Prof. Hansen, Whiting and Guerny are great teachers in these^jneetlngs. We must therefore do all in our power to make this meeting a success. Dead wood will do her part royally in furnishing the incentive in the way of premiums, aud tbe fruit growers all over the hills must respond loyally with a large collection of apples containing as many varieties as possible. 1 THEHYCIEO tbe Minnesota State meeting lu January over one thousand plates of apples were shown and while we m*y not ex ceed this we can Induce orctiardists to make such a display as will advertise our section and convince the world that we produce something besides gold and beef. Further If eastern people know we are going to make a fine exhibit they will attend In large numbers.
