Governor John Burke of North Da kota is in this state making speeches in which he is strongly advocating the el ection of Wootlrow Wilson, f. The staudpat editor of the Des Moihes Capital, Lafe Young, predicts that Wilson will sweep Iowa into the democratic column this fall. Secretary Fisher's action last Jan uary in revoking the order of former Indian Commissioner Valentine's barring religious garb or insignia from government Indian school, was upheld by President Taft in an order made public Monday. Ipswich Tribune: If you see a num ber of citizens wearing aluminum badges in their coat lapels, don't ask what they mean. It's simply an in vitation to real republicans to vote the democratic ticket in November. From present indications, the invita tion will be accepted. Friday morning's frost was general over the west and it caught a little unmatured corn. A farmer says the soft corn was mostly from southern seed—that corn from local seed was safely out of the way. The lesson is one that the newspapers have been exploiting for years. Northwestern South Dakota is dem onstrating it is acorn country and an alfalfa country, as well as a wheat and cattle country. Every bit of South Dakota is good for something pretty good, and the homestead coun try in the northwest corner is holding up its end with the best of the older counties. Wait till Roosevelt gets to be presi dent—just wait till he does—the eagle will get yanked off that five dollar gold William so quick he'll lose his tail feathers, and a life sized photo of a bull moose will take his place. The phrase "In God We Trust" will have to get off and its seat to "Trust Teddy We Must."—Claris Courier. ife South Dakota needs a good common sense man as its governor. The Ves sey administration has been a farce and F. M. Byrne, now a candidate for governor, has been one of the star actors. The people just simply don't want bim and their decision at the polls in November is going to be very decisive to that effect.—Lester ville Ledger. There is no reason why a republi can should cast a vote for Roosevelt any more than for Wilson. Roose velt has gone on record, both in mag azine articles and public speeches, as being in favor of absolute free trade as between Canada and the United States. So the free trade cry of the bull mooser press will have very littie weight with the farmer who reads. sjn Congress having decreed PIERRE. SOUTH DAKOTA, THURSDAY. OCTOBER 3, 1912 Hit"? Alfalfa bred, alfalfa tea, alfalfa candy are among the new foods and drinks, and South Dakota is taking its place in the forefront in deyelop iug the industry. "-J The very fact that many declare they are still Republicans, yet they favor Teddy who repudiates the lie publican party, discloses a weakness in. their fidelity to him. The Brookings Press has been sold, the purchaser being 11. L. Turner, formerly editor of the Lake Benton News, but who has been in the west for the past couple of years. Not a bit of progress is being made in the claim that Woodrovv Wilson is the candidate of the bosses. The peo ple know better, and even the wily colonel cannot make them change their minds.

Each of these men has treat ed the other as gentlemen should and there was nothing strained about their greetings. Mr. Roosevelt makes it impossible for any man to differ with him and be a friend, and, in the colonel's actual belief, every man who is against him is a thief, a liar and a porchclimber. But fortunately all public men are not like the colon el.—Argus-Leader. FOR GOVERNOR EDWIN S. JOHNSON HE WILL MAKE GOOD." LAMAN IS GIVEN LAND STRIP In the case qf Michael T. Collins vs. Lyman county the Supreme Court on Tuesday ^reversed the lower court of Stanley county, and held that a strip of country about twenty ^miles long and two miles wide, which ha9 been in dis pute between Stanley and Lyman coun ties, rightfully belongs in Lyman coun ty, and gives that county jurisdiction over the tract. HANSEN'S LONG TRIP Deputy N. M. Hansen of the state land department returned Thursday to the office from a trip of over fifteen hundred miles by auto over the west ern half of the state, in which he touched at points in every county west of the Missouri river. He was looking after matters in relation to that department covering lease tres pass, selection of indemnity lands, and a general review oj the business of the department in that section which required attention. He found that there would be no opportunity for the state to secure indemnity lands on the Pine Ridge reservation for the state school lands, as all the lands in that reservation will be re quired to fill allotments, and then there will be a shortage. He found it hard to find any agricultural land at any place to till the indemnities the state is entitled to for sections sixteen and thirty-six taken by In dians. A DECENT WORD FOR TAFT Woodrow Wilson, democratic nom inee for the presidency, speaking at Minneapolis, said: "I want to pay my tribute of per sonal respect to the president of the United States. 1 don't believe any man who knows the fac's can ques tion the^integrity or the purpose of the man who now presides in the White House. If he has gotten into bad company it is no fault of his. He did not choose the company. It was made beforehand. If he has taken their advice it was because they were nearest to bim and be did not hear anyone else. That is the reason why I should rather hear the advice of a crowd like this than the advice of a cabinet." ^INCREASED VALUATION The Eagle Butte papers estimate the increased valuation in that sec tion this year over at $150,000 acces with live The passing from the ers, means its ranks.

E. VanDenmark, assistant United States attorney. The Indians on the Cheyenne reserva tion held a fair at DuPree recently. Irish Tommy, Morris Moress, Babe La Plant and others obtained a quantity of whisky and set up headquarters on the allotment of Frank Brown, two miles west of Dupree. Joe Narcelle went there about 4 o'clock in the afternoon and procured some of the whisky. He left the place but soon returned and de manded more whisky. He and Irish Tommy got into a quarrel over a horse and some money which Tommy owed to Narcelle. Narcelle was refused the whisky and he then told Irish Tommy that if he did not give it to him he would tell the authorities, that he was selling whisky. Irish Tommy entered the house and obtained Brown's shotgun. He came out and shot Narcelle while he was on horseback and unarmed. THE PASSING OF BIG NOISE Charter Oak Times: Thie procession of the great noise is passing by, The last little whistle is in sight. The only question is whether it will get by in time for a square vote is November, or will obstruct the highwav enough to keep the proper party away from the White House, The great noise is dying out. The head of it ts now out among the stars, or on the high seas, or Bome where—at sea, perhaps. A few mis guided people will be still on the job in November, but most of them will have passed around the corner out of hearing. Some people mistake the great noise for political sense, but they are seeing the light through the blare of the hub bub and are deserting the ballooning. The American people want something more substantial than hot air dished up in noise. REVENUE FROM CORPORATIONS The letter of transmittal in the re port of the secretary of state for tin biennial period ending June 30 last, shows for that period ending June 30 last, shows for that period receipts ol $56,717.33 or about $100 greater than for the preceeding two years. These receipts are $41,287.33 in excess of the salaries and operating expenses of the department. The principal source of revenues are derived from companies of different classes, which incorporate under the laws of the state. In the biennial period there have been incorporated 1,700commer cial corporations 41 banks 231 reli gious and fraternal organizations. There have been issued 228 certifi cates to foreign corporations and 1, 710 notarial commissions. In that time the people of the state have taken out 7,050 automobile licenses, as compar ed with 4,962 for the preceeding two years. The board of pardons has recommended pardons for fourteen persons, and recommended the parole of one. s£$ last year, at near two million dollar*.

RAIN CAUSING DELAY In a few limited localities in ber be favorable, the farmers into the WILSON ON PROTECTION The theory, doctrine and claim that protection advantages the farm er, upon which the republican party has so persistently and insistently rung the changed, never met with more complete annihilation than they suffered at the hands of Governor' Wilson in a speech he made in Penn sylvania the other day. The Ameri can farmer, Governor Wilson assert ed, has never needed protection for the reason, which constitutes economical fact," that his grains have been sold at prices established by the prices which his produce com-' manded in foreign markets. But Governor Wilson did not stop there. Turning to the disadvantage* to the farmejr involved in "prutee tiog"—high tariff—he afiimed that meantime everything used on the farm, everything the farmer needs, a great deal of what be eats but does not himself produce, including meats, bears a heavy dCity, "which brings' about the interesting result (the far mers) are paying for the wealth o£ the United States and gueting noth ing equivalent, so far as the tariff is concerned." A would be elected." the state threshing of small grain bas been completed and threshing outfits are being shipped to North Dakota to take up the work of threshing there. Because of frequent rains recently the work of threshing in some parts ol the state is not as far advanced as u'jual at this time of the year, and many farmers fear the work will not be finished "before winter sets in. The corn acreage being larger this season than ever before will have the effect of prolonging the fall work of the farmers, and if winter sets in early it is doubtful if all the corn can be picked this fall. The rains also have resulted in the farmers being delayed with their fall plowing. How ever, should the weather during Octo will go winter witb their fall work practicalij completed, ¥ws^«jf4w» NO. 22 an A The Drices the farmer receives, he continued, in further impressing bis position as to the controlling relation of "an economic fact" to the ques tion, are not established by protec-v^f tion. They are established by you^P^ (the fordlrs') abundance, which you ship to foreign countries. From the recognition of the absolute cogency of thiB reasoning and the unassail ability of tne conclusion there is no' escape. bomb, verily, of con- centrated fact and logic Governor Wilson hurled into the protection camp in the above exposition. not only proved that the farmer He not protected, but demonstrated, to the contrary, that he was mercilessly, preyed upon for the benefit of the favored few that the agricultural interests, considering their immen sity, have been and ure being made the chief source for glutting protec tion vampireism. GOV. WILSON SEES VICTORY is His proof on the one point and bis demonstration as to the other refute in a nutshell every contention that has been advanced in exploitation of protection as the "farmers' friend." They are so clear and convincing that it is impossible to comprehend how any farmer gifted with even the most elementary ability to grasp them can fail of understanding that the tariff is his worst enemy. It is difficult to conceive how he can fail to recognize, that just in proportion as he accepts the high tariff doctrine he becomes the dupe aud the tool of the special interests and engages in cutting bis^l own purse and throats of the masses —is guilty of ecoaonie suicide.. New York, Sept. 28— Governors Woodrow Wilson declared today that.''" he felt greatly encouraged by bis re ception in New Eagland in the last few days.
