HUNDRED MILLIONS IN SIGHT Iwr.aM In Valae of Educational - RmrTM Gives Promise of that Aatoaal Within , Few Years. PIERRE, 8. D., May 14.-(Speolal.)-The ales of state school lands this year mnkt food showing for the state, when It Is considered that the prices received were for absolutely raw prslrls lands. Cultivated lands In the same vicinity are held at (mm $10 to 126 an acre higher, according to Im provements. The sales this year bring; a total of ISBU7196. to the fund, with an av erage price of til an acre. The sales by counties were: Aurora. CM acres, at an av erage of $3.1; Charles Mix. 2,41 acres, at $44.86 Clark, 8.477 acres, at $37.68; Day, 1.6s acres, at 138.02; Douglas, 861 acres, at $16.70; Gregory, 6.238 acres, at $39. 75; Jerauld. 3LD acres, at $38.37; Miner, 1.480 acres, at $40.97; Minnehaha, 1,110 acres, at $57.72; Sanborn, 80 acres, at $40; Bplnk, S.Z1S acres, at $45.23. This Is a general average, of, $41 for tho sales over tha whole stata. With the rest of the landa of the state sold st anywhere near the average fur this year, the total school fund will go over $100,o$0,000. and will bring a revenue which will practically maintain the schools of the state without local taxation. If the people of the state vote at the next election for leasing of lands for sgrlculural purposes, the lease price will go to a point which will bring in a higher revenue. It may be possible that some legislature In the fu ture will prohibit the further sales of such lands, in case the fund reaches a figure where Its profitable Investment become a question'' of concern. The stata will this year distribute over $00,000 to the schools as the Income from the permanent fund, and the mbney re ceived from leases In future years will In crease that sum. Some of the schools of tha state are now being maintained through this fund, and the number will Increase each year as the amount of the fund In creases, and In each such Instance there will be no local taxation for school pur poses. Up to the present the state has paid $4,500,000 to tha schools of the state its the Income from the state lands, and it will not be long until the Income will reach $1,000,000 a year at the present rate of In crease, and It the claims of the advocates of leases for cultivation come anywhere near making good if that plan Is adopted. the Income will run to a far larger annual! sum than that In a short time. If the state can eliminate school taxes It will mean that the rate of taxation in South Dakota will be the lowest of any state in the union, as the educational tax Is generally the highest of any of the taxes levied.

EARLY CLOSE HURTS DRYS Missouri Lea-lalatare Fixes Time for Adjournment at Slay Sev enteen. JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., Msy 11 The senate today concurred In the Joint resolu tion passed by the house yesterday and fixing the time for sine die adjournment at noon of May 17. The action practically dooms the prohibition measure, as the con ference committee on that bill has been unable to agree. The conference reports on the prohibition measure were filed In both houses, but no action was taken in either: The committee simply stated Its Inability to agree. Pro hibition leaders are convinced that their only hope of getting a vote on the subject at the next election lies In tha Initiative and referendum amendment passed last November. The defeat of the antl-pass and public utilities commission bills waa foreshadowed when the senate refused to suspend the rules in prder to give these measures Im mediate consideration. Both were urged by Governor Hadley and the republican senators tried hard to have them brought jp, d spite the adverse committee reports recorded asalntt them. The democratic majority, however. Insisted that the bills should take the regular order. Whether they will be reached before the adjourn ment is problematical.
