Sioax Falls, 8 D., Sept. 4:—It would
reqalre mora than a European war to
dlatraot the attention of the average
Soath Dakotan from political affairs,
and for this reason, and beoaase an im
portant polltloal oampaign ie about to
open In the state maoh Interest is at
preeent being taken in politioal matters
The struggle In Sonth Dakota this
fall will be between the republicans,
the democrats and the progressives,
and the managers of each of the parties
now are patting the finishing touches
on arrangements for the oampaign,
whloh will open In the near future and
be prosecuted by all three parties with
rigor np to the time of the general elec
tion In November.
This will be the first oampaign ever
waged in the state by the progressives
aa a party, and the leaders of the new
party are hoping they will make a
ahowlng at the polls in November that
will make them an Important faotor in
the state two years henoe. Their efforts
In the present oampaign will be center
ed In the governorship, and they will
wage a hard fight for O. Richards, of
Huron, the independent candidate for
election to the governorship, whom the
new party recently indorsed In the ab*
senoe of a straight oat progressive can
The democrats' will oen ter all their
efforts on the oandidaoy of 8. John
ton, of Yankton, nominee of the demo
orate for the United 8tates senate. Mr.
Johnson was the democratic candidate
for governor two years ago and made
each a good showing that his friends
believe that in the oampaign now aboat
to open he will be an important faotor
In the election of a United States sena
The repablloans, on the other hand,
deolare the dleotlon of Congressman
Oharlee H. Bnrke, their nominee for
the United States senate, isoertalD,bat
theee claims are not oonoeded by the
frlende of opposition candidates. The
great fights of the campaign will in
volve the offloes of United States sena
tor and governor.
One of the Important matters to
oome before the voters of Soath Dakota
at the general election in November
will be a proposed amendment to the
etate constitution granting women the
right of enffrage.
Theaoffrage foroee have been oam
palgnlng for almost a year, and it is
•aid to be noteworthy that very little
progreee baa bean made. Those who
have kewt In touoh with the newepapere
of Booth Dakota deolare that a mojorl
ty of the Influential newspapers
Soath Dakota are antiraffrage, and
that Individual oonverte appear to
''"•low In rushing to the oolors.
It Is further said that considerable
opposition to suffrage has developed
'among the women of the state. It
pointed out that Mrs. Bthel O. Jaoob
•on, of the Pierre Daily Dakotan, Is
leading anti-woman suffragist In
state, and that her writings In
paper apparently are oauslng the lead
era of ths oauss ho end of annoyanoek
The fight for woman suffrage promts
eeto attraot a groat deal or attention
during the oampaign.

Springs, South Dakota, Friday,
I*st Friday a number of men In
terested in the euooeee of tho propoeed
irrigation amendment to ths oonstitu
tlon of South Dakota to be eubmltted
to the voters At the November eleotion,
met In the olty of Pierre, and i*m.

F. B. Walker, of thla olty, and Ohae.
Nystrom' of Buffalo Gap repreeented
the Southern Hills.
At the forenoon seeeion, held In tho
Commercial Olub rooms, a steering
committee of three, of which Dr.
Walker was chairman, was appointed
to suggsst ways and meane for oarry
lng on the oampaign. On the sugges
tion of this oommittee an exeoutive
oommittee of three and an advisory
oommittee of one vloe president from
eaoh oounty west of the river, and all
the counties bordering the river on the
east, wsre seleoted, and a fund ot IG00
waa raised by assessment, thie fund to

be used in carrying on a publioity
This proposed amendment to the
oonstitutlon would maks possible the
oonstructiou of private irrigation pro*
jeots under what is known as irrigation
districts similar to the drainage dis
tricts now organized in Olay and Yank
ton oounties. There are about a
hundred such private pro jeots in the
western half of the stats taking In from
a tew hundred acres to ten thoueand
acres whloh the general government
would not bother with, and private
Individuals oould not handle. Thie
amendment is designed to permit them
to organize and issas bonds ander
proper safeguards to reclaim all this
land, utilizing the Immerse quantitlee
ot flood water now going to waste in
the thocRhnde ot streams and draws
thruout the etate. The amendment
will help the western half and will not
injure .the eastern half of the state,
henoe we expect to see It adopted.
But It will take a oampaign of edaoa
tion to do it.
LAst Saturday the Black Hills An
gOBtara Irrigation Association met in
Hot Springe to listen to reports and
lay plans. Dr. Walker, County Vloe
President for Fall River Oonnty, made
an exhaustive report of the Pierre
meeting. Assisted by Mr. Stanley, he
offered to raise the earn ot fifty dollars
by subscription in Hot Springs and
Edgemont to meet the state assessment
on Fall River oonnty, and Mr. Nystrom
igreed to raise the same amount for
Custer Oounty so as not to draw on the
treasury of the local associations
These will need all they have to meet
other expensss.
The expenses of the two delegates
were allowed, but Dr, Walker generous
ly turned his back Into ths trsasary.
To pay running expenses an assess
ment was mads as follows: Hot Springs
and Buffalo Gap, 920 each Oral $12

ssen the river at all etagee for many
years, tells ths writer that In his jadg

The readings whsn properly tabulated
will show how far he missed It.
