{&! posed Doing Away With the Pri-
Midland, S. D., Feb. 13.—The Re
publican county central committee of
Stanley county convened in session
at 7:00 p. m. today and on roll call
it was found that there were thirty
seven, votes by the following repre
sentative Republicans of the county:
Dr. C. J. Lavery. E. G. Fischer, R.. E.
Morgan, A. H. Snyder, C. H. Vlcker
man, Geo. S. Huston, Geo. L. Holly,
Judge S. J. Conklin, Frank H. Kin
ney, Fred Harrington, John A. Haw
kins, H. W. Poste, T. J. Robinson,
John Griffin, W. A. Hopkins, John F.
Hughes, W. D. Giddings, W. R. Beck
ett, J. C. Russell, Dr. C. S. Vincent,
E. W. Thode, O. T. Goodrich, Matt
hew (Scotty) Brown, Dr. C. C. Win
ter, E. S. Harshman, R. H. Town
send and J. H. Johnson, thirty-one
in all, seven of whom were stal
warts and twenty-four insurgents,
A motion was made that owing to
the fact that the Republicans were
Jj all united in support of the policies
and administration of President
Roosevelt and the candidacy of Sec
vSaJ cetary Taft,,for the presidency and
that there was no sufficient contest
to justify the expense of holding the
primary, that pursuant to section 67
of the primary law the county con
vention be dispensed with and' the
committee proceed to elect nine del
egates to represent Stanley county
at the Republican state convention
to be held at Huron on the 7th day
of April, 1908.
This motion was opposed by the
stalwarts, their spokesman declaring
that the insurgents /ntere responsive
for the passage of this law which
they were now tryinig to evade and
that the primary ought to be held
whether there was a contest or not.
The insurgent mover of the resolu
tion, replied to this argument that
section 67 under which this motion
was made, was as much a part of
the primary law as any other sec
•tion thereof that the stalwarts late
ly had been converted to reform ideas
and now all claimed to favor the po
licies and administration of the pres
ident and. the candidacy of Secre
tary Taft, and that to hold a pri
mary when there was no subject of
contention would be to entail a use
less expense upon the county, esti
mated to amount to over fifteen hun
dred dollars,
The speaker further called atten
tion of the committee to the manner
in which the stalwarts were attempt
ing to make the primary odious to
the people by holding a primary
when not necessary for the mere pur
pose of causing the. people the un
necessary expense thereof, citing in
support of his statements the action
of the stalwarts in Minnehaha coun
ty in deciding to hold a primary
when the Insurgents and democrats
had requested them not to, the dele
gation being concedede to them also,
where the same, policy was advocated
by the Argus Leader and other stal
wart papers openly for the mere pur
pose of making the primary so ex
pensive as to dlsgustthe people and
ijcall for its repeal.
The stand taken by the insurgents
:'hl*Sraa loudly applauded by the "voters
presentf, who packed the opera house
to Its utmost capacity,
Themotlon tor elect delegates by
'the committee prevailed, more than
-two thirds of the committee support
ing it, and the committee thereupon
elected the following delegates, to the
Huron convention: i)r. L. C. La very
Of-JJort Pierre Johh A. Hawkins, of
Ash Creek W. A.' Hopkins, Hayes
Matthew (Scotty)- Brown, Kadoka
Edward D. Dailey, Midland O. T.

resolution was. then passed en
orsing the administration and jpol
Seles of President Roosevelt, the
candidacy of Secretary Taft f?r the
presidency and the candidacy ofGov
ernor Coe Crawford for the United
States senate.
The committee then idjourned.
The Democratic central Committee
then immediately convened ana af
ter roll call a motion was made
pursuant to section 67 of the pri
mary law the county convention be
dispensed With and that the commit
tee elect delegates to attend the Dem
ocratic state conventlohp|This mo
tion was unanimously, and enthusias
tically carried, receiving loud ap
plause from the body of the house.

Spink County was the Largest Bor­
rower of State Ponds on Farm
Lands and Grant County Took the
Lead in the Way of School District
Loans,—No Surplus in Treasury
Under Present Management.
-v.
Pierre, S. D., Feb. 18.—-For many
years the state land department did
nothing in the way of school district
loans, for the reason that when a
school district desired to borrow
money, there was always a local re
presentative of Some loaning com
pany at hand to request the loan,
and the state was not making any
efforts in that direction. But when
the large surplus in the permanent
school funds piled up in the treasury
several years ago, it became neces
sary to look for loans, and the school
•districts propos!tion.^was- looked into
with the result that when-a school
district of the state wants a loan
ihft: firet place they apply for it is
generally to the state fund, and
many of then aie'belng accommodat
ed.' For the six months ending De
cember 31st last-the amount loaned
t'rm the stoic fund to school dis
h-Jets amounted to $56,700£®§ For
the same th'-.t. the farm loans made
Iirough the d'firrent counties reach
ed $212il33. Pplnk county was the
1 aviest bom^ei on farm lands se
curing over twenty-one thousand del
lars Grant county took the largest
amount in the way of school district
loans with ten thousand dollars.
With the present management of the
school fund, there has been no sur
plus in the permanent fund for over
five years, the demands for loans
generally being far above the amount
of cash on hand, and the loans being
taken up as fast as the money comes
in.
