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

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
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

by Governor Hadley and the republican
senators tried hard to have them brought

recorded asalntt them. The democratic
majority, however. Insisted that the bills
should take the regular order. Whether
they will be reached before the adjourn
