"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
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.
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
should not for one moment
hesitate to put the knife to tbe corrup
"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.
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
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
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. For every dollar of

the farmers were called upon to pay

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.
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
Congress and circulated among its
delegates and members, which shall
include to each member and- delegate
an official copy of the proceedings of
