SOUTH DAKOTA, THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 19, 1912 Chicken huntiug was the favorite pastime last week. Birds are scarce. A man must have strange sensa tions when trying to be a presiden tial elector for a party he has bolted and is trying to defeat. The weather of last week done much toward pushing corn on to maturity. A greater portion of the crop is now out of danger from frost. January 8, 9 and 10 have been fixed as dales for the state conservation meeting at Pierre. Dry farming and good roads will be considered, The thirteenth annual meeting of the South Dakota Educatioual as sociation will be held in Mitchell on November 25, 26, 27, during the Thanksgiving vacation season. The Arkansas election held Septem ber 9, resulted in victory for the dem ocratic prrty, headed by ,J. T. Robin son for governor. Statewide prohibi tion was an issue, but was defeated. Elevators doing a storage business in the state must publish their stor age rates during September of each year in some newspaper printed in the town or county in which the elevator is located. In spite of the fact that Governor Wilson will undoubtedly be the next president, the prognosticates persist in telliug us that we are on the eve of an era of great prosperity. Of course —Dakota Democrat. The Fortieth Annual Reunion of Masons of the Scottish Rite of the Black Hills, opens in Deadwood on Monday, September 23, and will con tinue uutil the 27th. A large number of members of the order are expected to be present. Loomis S. Cull, late candidate for governor in the primary campaign and Ben M. Wood, son of the late Chauucey L. Wood, announce the formation of a partnership under the lirm name of Cull & Wood, for the practice of law at Rapid City. Latest returns from the Colorado primary deprive the Roosevelt party of the bulk of the victory it claimed on the strength of the early returns. The moosies nominated their candi date for attorney general. The rest of the ticket was won by the other elements. Crops have been so good ,v j. :•.•?•' /v in Lyman county that the peonle down that way feel like celebrating the promised har vest abundance, which they will do by holding a two days' fall festival at Draper. An effort is being made to arrange for an address by Governor Johnson—not Hiram, but Ed. 8. Frost was predicted for Monday night. The mercury in the govern ment thermometer claimed only to the 51 degree mark, and by 7 o'clock it had fallen oniy one point. The cold was intensified by a damp drizz.H that fell during the greater part of the day. Minute traces of what ap peared to be snow fell early in the afternoon. Beset on one hand by the fear of a Russo-Japanese pact to embarrass and dismember the new Chinese re public to the great discomfiture of the United States, and on the other hand that a move against Mexico would provoke a war with all the seething little republics of Latin America, these are indeed troublesome days for the state department at Washing ton. Over 8,000,000 calves are slaughter ed annually in this country to satisfy the veal eaters. In Argentina they have a law prohibiting the killing of young heifers and the consequence has been a great increase of cattle in that country. Until people in this country quit killing off the hoifer oalves they must expect to pay high prices for steaks and roasts. Beef will be a good price for some time to come. V:V'KiSiLa On Friday, August 24, prime sir loin of beef Bold in London for 19}^ cents per pound and in New York for 28 cents per pound. Just at present neat prices are higher in this coun try than ever before, while the iden tial cuts that bring such high priees here are sold in London for about two-thirds as much. This despite the water haul of 3,000 miles, and the two rail hauls, first from Chicago to the Atlantic aea board, and from 'Liverpool to .Loadou*, :\v'- .• .:' 5. inlHHrirn*—-*•" 4s MAN OF THE COMMON PEOPLE Huronite: Frank Glasuer, of Tyn dall, has been in the city for a day or two taking in the fair, calling on old friends, and making hosts of new ones. Mr. Glassner is a candidate on (he republican ticket for secretary of state, being the successful candidate in the hot light in the primaries. That he was successful does not seem strange, after one becomes acquaint ed with him and discovers what a good mixer he is. Mr. Glassner has made many friends among people from all parts of the state during his stay here, for it takes him fnly a short time to gain ac quaintances. He is a man of the com mon people and they feel that if he is elected there will be at least one stat oflicial whom they can call by his first name, for he is Frank to all who know him. A college bred man and one capable and efficient to handle the work in the office to which he aspires, and which he will get, he is nevertheless an all round good fellow, as all who have met him already know. Mr. Glasner leaves tonight for his home, and he expects to campaign over the state before election. When they meet him the laboring men recognize in him a friend, aud it is certain that this trip will be productive of all kinds of benelit to his candidacy. TRAVELING IN GREAT LUCK Huron Huronite: Ed. S. Johnson, democratic candidate for governor, a visitor during state fair week, was made to feel good several times while here, but the encouragement he re ceived from National Committeeman Tom Thorson, of the moosie party, surpassed all the rest. Mr. Thorson was of the opinion that Mr. Johnson was traveling in great luck, having secured from the republicans the Egan vote, the Taft vote, aud the La Follette vote (his own version). Ac cording to Mr. Thorson, the bull moose vote would have been ready to go to him had the Roosevelt electors been eliminated from the republican ticket. SOME PRIMARY CONCLUSIONS H. L. Loucks of Watortown is a pa tient delver in figures aud facts and he has been giving- leisurely attention to an analysis of a portion of the vote cast at the June primary. Mr. Loucks reaches an estimate of 5,280 votes that were lost to LaPollette bv marking him in both the columns that carried his name. His figures satisfy him that 0,422 La Follette votes were given to Iloosevelt under the deceptive assurance of the Roosevelt managers that they would be counted for LaFollettc. He concludes that a percentage of re publieans equal to (3,422, who voted for him, did not and will not bolt with him from the republican party. He therefore figures the anti-Koose velt vote in the state (apart from dem ocratic vote) at this time to be: LaPollette vote as counted 19,800 Vote lost to LaPollette by mark ing in two eolamns ..*. 5,280 Votesecured for Roosevelt under false pretence 6,422 Votes of republicans who will not bolt their party 6,422 Taft vote as counted 10,944 Total 48,928 The total republican vote at the pri mary election. the. vote on governor, was 74,716 and the vote on presidential delegatss would not have been as large but for the casting out of ballots mark ed twice for LaFollette. The figures make it very plain that Mr. Roosevelt could not begin to carry the state if the anti-Roosevelt voters were permitted to vote for auother re publican candidate. As they have been denied that privilege, the larger por tion of them will vote the democratic ticket, will vote for Wilson electors, rather than lose the right of suffrage. There are more than 40,050 demo cratic votes in South Dakota. Add these to the large number of republi can votes that have been diverted by fraud to democratic intentions and it is quite easy to conclude that the demo cratic majority will be overwhelming in its rebuke of the dishonest methods that have marked the career of the Roosevelt party. |A GOVERNOR IN FACT Vermillion E'lainTalk: EdwardS. Johnson, the democratic candidate for governor, apparently has a walk away over Byrne. The latter is not very popular in Clay county and the Yankton citizen stands a mighty good chance to secure the majority vote here. If the voters want a governor in fact, instead of iu name only, they should otllj to the support of Mr. Johaaoik JW i'-:'MM i-.v.. v..*:' 5 Vfr- --v- ^'5". '*i *k* x~ ?v AN UNUSAL HARVEST All figures aside, South Dakota has produced a wonderful harvest this season. The farmers themselves have been surprised at it. Mauy farmers were not inclined to believe the meas urements of the thresher at first when they began rolling out fifteen to forty six bushels of wheat to the acre. The enormous oat yield was also hard to believe. Aud, now there is maturing a great corn crop. The farmer scarcely has the equip ment to care for such a harvest. The threshers are way behind with the threshing. There are not enough ma chines to separate the grain from the straw. New bins have to be built to store the grain and new cribs to crib the corn. The bin room and the crib room which served for an average crop will not answer this season. The farmer is storing his grain and will wait for advanced prices. This is the wise thing to do. The farmer does not pretend to predict the future mar kets but he is opposed to sacrificing ou the price for the reason he has no place to store products, "*1 THE RECORD NEARLY DUE As a result of the signs of a perfect landslide in favor of Ed. S. Johnson for governor all over South Dakota it is evident that the bull moose man agement in the state is feverishly alarmed when it is considered neces sary to pass out the tip that the local campaign is to be fought on national issues, aud that state issues are to be kept iu the back ground. Their only hope is that the voluable bull moose colonel may, with his brass band methods create enough tuss so as to direct attention away from the rotten record of the present state house gang. It is confessed that the state record is even weaker than the colonel, and not to be given to the public. Of course, we don't blame the bull moosers for trying to get away from the record they have made at Pierre that record would flush the cheek of sin. We would try to loose such a record our selves. But we beg leave to pass out the information definitely that the people of the state desire to hear all about this state record, and that they are not only going to hear all about it, but they are going to do a great deal of talking about it, too, aud in the end vote for anew deal. The record is sufficient to put any party to the bad, and the more it is known the surer will be the defeat of the state house crowd, now posing as bull moose reformers. JESSIE MAY COME WEST l Milwaukee, Sept. 14.—Miss Jessie Wilson, daughter of the Democratic presidential candidate, is being urged to visit the state by Mrs. Glendower Evans of Boston, in the interest of woman suffrage. The plan is to have Miss Wilson tour the west with Mrs. Robert M. LaFollettu. A PROFITLESS MEETING Huron. Sept. 13.—The meeting of Thursday afternoon between the state political committee that is presided over by Carl Sherwood and several candidates on the state republican state ticket was called to order by Mr Sherwood. The chairman ancounced that the committee could not work for the ad vancement of candidates ou the ticket who were not in sympathy with the bull moose movement, and Mr. Abel, candidate for lieutenant governor was asked for his views. Mr. Abel frank ly stated that he would not support the electoral ticket put up by the new bull moose party and called a repub lican ticket, and Congressman Burke endorsed the position assumed by Mr. Abel and frankly declared that he wa6 not a bull moose. Brief talks were made by smooth Mr. Crawford and Mr. Preston, the latter a candidate for presidential el ector on the Roosevelt section of the republican ticket, both the speakers championed the cause of the bull moose colonel. No effort was made to compromise the existing differences and no propo sition was put forth for the concilia tion of the scrapping elements or the improvement of the acute situation. The plan of the campaign was talked over with no defiteness and things drifted until the end of the meeting and when the gathering dissolved, nothing bad been arrived at and the old grudge had lost none of its raw spots. There was an evening meeting, but it was poorly attended, only a dozen or fifteen bull moosers showing-up The sessions were void of results. The campaign will be eondna|«l «D tha go jou |1mm NO. 20 WILL GO TO WILSON Nothiug in the way of concert of action between the bull mooBieB aud the republicons came out of the meet ing yesterday of the new party state central committee and the candidates on the state and congressional ticket. The session opened with an an nouncement by the chairman of the committee that the committee could not work during the campaign fo: those candidates on the ticket who were opposed to the Roosevelt presi dential electors. Mr. Burke, candidate for congress and Mr. Abel, candidate for lieuten ant goyeruor, spoke for the Taft side of the controversy and Senator Craw ford and H. C. 1'reston for the Roose velt side. Mr. Burke and Mr. Abel frankly stated that they would not support the Roosevelt electors that have been placed on the republican ticket. Aft er these several declarations had been made, the discussion drifted along in a desultory way and no conclusion: was reached and the moosies and the Tafties and La Folletteites remained as far apart, as they were at the open ing. The state meeting of republicans at* Mitchell next week will conclude the^ series of gatherings that baje been called in the interest of harmony and) there will be no more harmony after that event than there has been since the third party gobbled the republi can organization in the name of an other party organization. The South Dakota factions of re publicanism that existed as factions up to the organization of the third party have reached the parting of the ways and there will be no further overtures for a settlement of differ ences. Having been deprived of the privi lege of casting their votes for the presidential candidate of their choice, the Taft element will go to the demo cratic party for the time being and will cast its votes for Wilson presi dential electors and for such demo*, crats on the state ticket as may peal to the individual judgment 00^ the members of the republican party.r'f The LaFolette element, deprived by, a trick of a hearing at the primary election, will also go into the Wilson camp and the Johnson camp. The alignment has been made and the bull moosies will go down unless they can beat the combination of re publicans aud democrats.—Huronite. CRITICISED THE COLONEL Aaron S. Watkins, prohibition can didute for vice president, in an open* air address in Aberdeen, on Saturday devoted.a large proportion of his re-.,,,^ marks to Theodore Roosevelt, whom^v he criticised severely, and claimed that the colonel, repeatedly preaching'. political sermons from the text "Thou shalt not steal", had stolen most of the progressive platform from the prohibition party platform. The next regular meeting of thd State Board of Pharmacy, for the ex amination of candidates for registra tion and general business, will be held in Aberdeen on October 9. PREACHER TALKS POLITICS There was some politics injected in to the Wisconsin conference of Meth odists at Milwaukee on Friday last, when Bishop Quayle, of St. Paul, said in the course of an address: "People are going wild over poli tics. They are talking of a crisis. I tell you that when a man is out of a political job and wants a job and can't get it he takes that time to tell the people in a loud voice, that there is no other man but himself who is fit for the job—everybody else is a ras-' cal. When you hear that just laugh at him." Hardly any of the Methodists pres ent believed that the bishop was talk ing about Wilson, Taft, Chafin or Debs. r% TO BE BIG AFFAIR There is a handsome appropriation by the State of California in addition, appropriations for California county buildings, for various State build ings for the SpaniBh-speaking coun tries of this continent.
