ABERDEEN DEMOCRAT taecettOT Vo TVoTveeT-SexiUxvel. GEO. B. DALY, Editor. E. J. SEARLE, Manager Published Every Friday by THE ABERDEEN PUBLISHING CO 114 1st Avenue East Entered In the Postofflce at Aberdeen, S. I), as second class matter. Subscription Price—One Year, $1.00 ABERDEEN, S. D., AUG. 4, 1905 One of the features of our present educational system, that of having examination papers of applicants for second grade certificates, formerly marked and passed upon by the county superintendents, sent to the state capital and submitted to a board of examiners drawn from all portions of the state is sub ject to question as to its wisdom or unwisdom. The board re cently appointed consists of twenty-one members two of whom, M. M. Guhin" and Miss Elizabeth Clary, are from this city, certainly very creditable' members. But it is very ques tionable if this new arrange ment, costly it must be, is an improvement over the old sys tem. There are important things to be considered which go to make a successful or unsuc cessful teacher and to which ex amination papers give no clue. These things, personal appear ance and bearing, record as teacher and general reputation are likely to be known to the county superintendent, and should be considered by him. It is certain, and many of us know it to our sorrow, when the papers are all that are consider ed, some very poor teachers are foisted upon us and some excel lent material for teachers refus ed. The good judgment and discretion of the county super intendent are safer than cast iron rules imposed by some cent ralized power. It will be remembered that whenever ex-Senator Pettigrew went on campaigning tours about the state during the fall of 1900, the redoubtable Col. Wal lace also appeared with his note book. He was hired by the re publican state committee to take verbatim every speech made by Mr. Pettigrew. They now have these speeches complete and for weeks the manager of the local machine organ has been studying this collection, culling therefrom whatever criticisms of President Rooseyelt may be found. The machine is laying out for a big fight against the anti machine element in the party which will strive to elect congressmen who will honestly support the president in his determination to compell the railroads to give the people a square deal in freight rates. The machine gang is so fear fulof somethingorotherthey ima gine Pettigrew may do to assist the president that it is hoped this collection of severe or sar castic sayings about Roosevelt may counterbalance their secret treachery when making their ap peals to the rank and file of their party whom they hope once more to hoodwink. Look out for the early appearance of these ex tracts. The Aberdeen News has had no use for harvest hands and threshers, or "hoboes" as it de lights to term them, since the campaign of 96, when Comrade DeWoody foiled the efforts of the republican workers to round them up for the republican tic ket. The tenderfoots who do the writing on the News have nothing against these men, the inspiration back of them is re sponsible for the slanders to which they give utterance. In deed the editorial writer on the News is a gentleman much es teemed by the editor of the Democrat who is sorry now that he didn't give him that dime. The old story, that has done service on the platform and else where for so long, about the quack doctor who first threw his patients into fits because lie was h—1 on fits, would apply to the gang which have gone into con vulsions for fear that Pcttigrew may again appear in the South Dakota political arena. The Press is the organ of no clique or faction, so faras it knows. It is straight Republican, but its editor is first an American citi zen and secondly a Republican. He has seen Frank Pettigrcw but once for oyer 12 years. He docs not know what Pcttigrew proposes to do nor what position he will occupy politically in the future. The only parties that have announced or even mention ed that he would be a candidate for governor are the distinctive pro-railroad gang. Perhaps they will pick him up and run him instead of trying to give El rod a second term. This would be commendable for he would certainly make abetter governor. The writer hopes that Mr. Pct tigrew, if he should read, this, will not swell up because it is not much of a compliment after all. Redfield Press. One of the shrewdest things the machine outfit iti this state did,as they supposed, was to have their legislatui-e, after the out rage of refusing to submit the primary law, enact their 'honest' caucus law. When the people asked for bread they got a stone. The ringsters have been fearful that a time might soon come when the struggle to wrest the state from railroad domination might rage entirely within the republi can party caucuses, and the friends of a state government by the people might attract a large number of sincere supporters from the old time populists. To cut off all possibility of this con tingency this caucus bill was passed. Now comes to view the week point in their law thatteven a layman can see, namely, that the law is invalid by reason of the provision in it compelling a voter, when challenged, to disclose how he voted at the last preceding election. This is nothing more or less than an effort to violate the secrecy of the ballot, a right guaranteed by the Australian ballot law adopted in this state. It is the custom in Beadle and some other counties in this state to publish in full the list of per sonal property assessments, name and amount as returned by the assessors. It is a wise pro vision and would pay in this county as well as give another job to the official papers. The list for Beadle appears in the Huronite this week. In looking over it one is struck by the very small amount of taxable personal property belonging to the resi dents of the city in comparison to that found in possession oi the farmer. For example Take Banner township, picked entirely at random, where there are 38 persons assessed with an average of $640, and then 38 per sons in Huron picked at random just as they run. Their aver age is $188, and this includes fair number of heavy tax payers. Next week a Brown county sam ple will be given. Judge Whiting in the Beadle county injunction case has de cided that the sweeping order of the state board compelling the dipping of all cattle in some doz en counties in this state, includ ing Beadle, is void. That the state board has no jurisdiction over counties where there is cattle inspector. Also that no county inspector canorder aherd dipped unless upon actual in spection it is found that the herd is infected or very recently ex posed. The decision is a right eous one and gives the law chance to live and be respected.

We learu that Miss Welty is to teach the Fangcn school in Lansing township and Mr. Gilbert who taught in Houghton last year has been rc-en gaged to teach the coming year. The intensely hot and almost wind less weather of the past few days lias left the cattle depending on windmill pumping rather short of water at very trying time. Cattle buyers from Ilecla and Sioux City have been scouring the country for fat stock to ship from II eel a Fri day morning. Rather hard on cattle to be boxed up such weather. AQAIN6T THE EQUITABLB.
