The meetings will continue until Sunday evening. The Madiaon correspondent of the Sioux Falls Press is an inventive Mcuss.n He says "Register of Deeds Schmidt sold 160 acres of improved land yester day for $3,100." Mr. Schmidt doee not know that any such thing has happened as he has not tried to aell a place of that kind and has no offer from anyone to purchase. Sioux Falls Press, 3: Those of you who at school warn taught. A Newfndl'nd, with the accent on the ttrat syllable, seem to have been unfortunate. The historian of that country says the accent ought to be on the "land," and that it may in a pinch be on the "found," but never on the "New." Bat, in any event don't be pedantic about it. C. J. Button and family departed to day for Ossge, Iowa, where they will make their foture home. Mr. Button has been a most excellent citizen, he and his family earnest christian workers and muoh beloved by thair church people and a large circle of frienda and ac quaintances outside, many of whom re gret their leaving. A large number were at the depot to bid them good-by. C. B. Kennedy and wife and S. M. Jenks returned last evening from their southern trip muoh benefitted by the changa of climate. They called on the way back at Pittsburg, Kans., and found a busy, growing city. They saw there Rev. and Mrs. Ewart and Mrs. Prioe, formerly of this place nod found them well and doing well. Mr. Ewart's efforts are meeting with success and his church is growing steadily. The numerous frienda of Hon. J. J. Fitzgerald have long been trying to per suade him that it is his duty to run for mayor at the coming municipal election and to-day have been rewarded by re ceiving his consent to the use of his name as a candidate tor that office. His friends expected to make the formal an nouncement of bis name to morrow but THE DAILY LEADER will be pardoned by its readers for giving thia pieee of good news a day in advance. The county commissioners had 150 ap plications in for seed grain last night, 110 of whioh they had acted upon and granted relief. Nine applications had been rejected for want of sufficient se curity. About 25 more applications have been added to the number and act od upon today. The commissioners think that not over 7,000 bushels of wheat will be necessary to supply all de mand. There is considerable desire for more flax than the law permits. Aberdeen dispatch, 2: A number of farmers in the vicinity of Warner, Brown county, have banded together and will cultivate a large amount of sugar cane. The cost of seed is a matter of small ex pense and the growing of the crop is by no means an experiment. It hts before been tested and the association contem plates the purchase of a sorgum mill, in. eluding crusher, evaporator, etc. It is estimated that a 20-acre field of fair cace should yield 3,000 gallons of syrup, worth 40 cents per gallon. Murray fc Porter have received notioe from Judge Jones of his decision in the Stanford-Reynolds will case to the effect that the marriage of Stanford to the woman Pomelieu in Minneapolis was null and void and that his marriage to Mrs. Reynolds was valid and hence the will which leaves Stanford the homestead for life, $1,000 in cash and about $1,000 worth of other property, is valid also. This case has been so stubbornly fought on matters of fact it is not at all likely that it will be appealed and aot at all probable that it would be reversed if ap pealed. Mr. Stanford is corresponding ly elated at the outcome. The average American prides himself on his quick-wittedness and delights to twit the foreigner for his du'lness in see ing the point of a joke, but the practical joker is hardly excusable jvhen he per petrates so coarse and cruel a piece of ingenuity as was-palmed off on the peo ple of Wells, Minn., by the publisher of the Forum of that plaoe on the morning of April 1. It rehearsed a story of bank robbery in that plaoe that night, giving detailed acoounts of the murder of A. O. Olson, formerly of Howard and well known here, and the mortally wounding of another man. Some of the papers which reached here and Howard caused friends of Mr. Olson untold angaiah be fore they learned the spurious and di abolioal character of the narrative. Such joking shows an indelicacy of feeling and coarseness of breeding that reflects ser iously on the bringing up of anyone who would indulge in so unnatural a pastime. For rant, five-room cottage.

COMING IN VERY RAPIDLY little Doudt Expressed That ft* Law Will be UpMd by the Courts. WASHINGTON, April 4.—The income tax returns are coining in far beyond the expectations of the officials. To save time and avoid complications, the collectors were instructed to classify and send the returns on the 10th of each month, and therefore no reports have been received of a later date than March 10. Nevertheless, as many as 10,000 returns have already been reoaived and are now being verified and recorded. It is estimated that the returns made to the collectors prior to March 10 repre sent at least $1,500,000 income tax, and that the actual amount returned to April 1 will probably aggregate $15, 000.000. Exceedingly Gratifying. It was not expected that return* to any considerable number would be made before the 8th or 10th of April, five days before the time limit expires, hence, the showing so far made is ex ceedingly gratifying to those having the matter in charge. Another matter of congratulation is that little difficulty is being experienced by taxpayers in filling out the blanks. So far, little or no difficulty has been encountered, and all things considered, the work of col lecting the tax is going forward with very little friction. It is expected that at leait $20,000,000 in income tax will have been collected by June "1, the close of the fiscal year. The officials do Mot express any doubts that the su preme court will sustain all of the inv portaut features of the law, if not the entire act as it stands, and are pushing the work as rapidly as is consistent with accuracy. THEODORE'S HOBBY. CmninlMlnner Ro«MT«lt Want* to 8MCivil SerVlee tireatljr K*i ended. WASHINGTON, April 4.—Civil Service Commissioner Roosevelt is thoroughly committed to the doctrine of including many more offices under the civil serv ice laws: Speaking on this subject, he said: We have got to have civil service re form, not only in the nation, but in the state and municipality, and we have got to have it, not only as it now ap plies in the nation, but to very many other officers that are not properly po litical in charater. Our people have for 70 years been educated to regard the spoils system as part of the natural order of things, so that they are wholly inca pable of understanding as yet that a postmaster, for instance, has nothing whatever to do with politics if he at tends to his duty, and that there is no more need of filling the fourth-class postoffloes with people who sympathize with the views of the administration for the time being, on the questions of tariff and currency, than there would be in having the express or telegraph business of the United States adminis tered by protectionists or free traders, accordingly as one party or the other triumphs at the elections. Not So In England. In England postmasters are appointed by promotion from within the ranks, exoept in the lowest grade, where they are appointed directly from the outside. They are never removed for political reasons. In our country, it would per haps be difficult to allow a system of transfer from office to office, through out the nation at large, but such trans fer could be certainly made within the borders of a state and the postmasters in tho big oities, at the^ largest offices should be appointed, whenever a va cancy occurs, from within the ranks of the postal service of that state. Nominal Head a Figure Head. A curious result of the present sys tem is that the nominal head of an office is of no consequence whatever in the administration of the office. In a great many offices throughout the coun try the work is done by the assistant postmaster who is permanently rtv tained. He could do his work quite aft well if there were not a postmaster. The decent people of this country are greatly interested in political questions, and they are also greatly interested i« such non-political questions as honesty and efficiency of the publio servant^ but they are not interested in seeing a lot of little politicians get offioe. Merely Ministerial. The question of tariff, the question of currency, the question of our foreign policy, are all of immense concern to all American citizens who have the welfare of America at heart, but these questions are fixed by the actions of the people's representatives in congress, by the president and the cabinct. There will be no need of changing more than a hundred officials in the treasury de» partment, to make a complete and radj» ical revision in the tariff or financial policy of tho government. Almost all the government employes perform du ties merely ministerial in character. The enormous majority of them do not have to deal with political questions at all. Demoralise* and Degrades. I want to see that civil service system become universal, in the first place be cause the offices ought to be out of pol itics, and the service would be improved if they were out in the second place, and chiefly, because I wish to take out of publio life the utterly demoralizing and degrading influence of the spoilt system. It has been on the whole, the znofct fruitful of the causes which tend to the degradation of American politics, and in no way can we 00 strengthen the forces which tend to the elevation of our political life as to utterly destroy tha spoils gyatexa. liUhop of Mou Fall*. Sioux FAIXM, S.
