Two South Dakota boys have just
graduated from West Point with honors
-James Hauson and H. \Y. Sehull. The
class at West Point has been graduated
earlier this year in order that il may
furnish ollioers for the army. They will
have two months furlough before going
into active service.
The Argus-Leader thinks as long as
we cau sell beef to the packing establish
ments and make money out of it, we
ought not to sny anythiug about the
rUec or chemically poisoned beef
furnished by these establishments to our
soldiers aud the world at large. It
thiuks for the sake of the money in it
we ought to protect this diabolical busi
ness by keepiug still and that Gen. Mita
ought to be squelched in his effort to ex
pose it. We are not built that way, Mr.
Argus. Let the beef-packers and army
cjutractors be made to furnish a decent
and wholesome article let the effort {cost
wnat it will. The soldiers at the front
are just as good and possibly a little
battter than some other people and
ought to have as good as there is.
If NloKinley'e luvestigatigating com
mission was not a whitewoshing com
mission why is it they could tind no
trace of the putrid meat furnished the
soldiers when 480 officers in command of
men during the oampaign report to
Gen. Miles that the meat was not fit to
eat, the men could not eat it without be

eat it.
Beth branches of congress have passed
an amendment to the election law that
permits the use of voting machines at
national elections, and it is said the
president will sign it. Voting ma
chines have already been legalized in
several states and their recent successful
use in New York and elsewhere has prov
ed their accuracy and convenience.
Rochester was the first city to use
them in 1896, but these were a failure.
Worchester, Mass., tried the experiment
with another apparatus which proved
equally unsuccessful. A third invention
was tried at Hornellsville with better
results the returns being announced
seven minutes after the polls were
olosed. These machines were inanu

reasons for not prosecuting Phillips and

cided to not even listen to the reading of

judiciary committee doubtless to be
smothered. This may be the proper way
to receive a state document and to treat
the chief executive of the state, but it
looks more like big boys play aud mani

A United States voting machine is
now on exhibition at a hotel in Wash
inton. The ballota are arranged on its
face, with the names of the parties in
horizontal rows and the candidates of
each in columns below them. A voter
who wishes to vote the straight ticket
presses »t button over the name of the
party to which he belongs. If he wishes
to split his ticket he presses a button at
the side of the name of each candidate
for whom he desires to vote. The ma
chine is about six feet high by twelve
inches wide and can be placed in a booth
three or four feet square. The mechan
ism will not operate uutil the voter en
ters the booth and closes the door be
hind him,aud his vote will not be record
ed until he leaves the booth aud closes
the door. If he makes a mistake or
chauges his mind he can amend his vote
by pulling out the button he has
pressed aud pushing in another.
Like in a cash register, little disks
snow the total number of voters that
have entered the booth and the number
of votes that have been cast for each
candidate. There is an attachment
which mades it impossible for auy one to
vote for two candidates for the same
ollice. If he attemsts to do so his vote
will not be registered.
On the closing of polls the judges of
election by examining the disks cau
ascertain at a glance the total number
of votes oast and the number for each
candidate. Unless he takes time to
think the voter need not occupy the
booth more than a minute.

LOSS PLACED AT A MILLION.
Machine Shop* at the Kaooklyn Nav.v
Yard Destroyed
NEW YORK. Feb. 17.—Over $1,000,000
worth of government property was de
stroyed by fire which started in the
large machine shop of the Brooklyn
navy yard, known as machine shop No.
28, and the workings of the navy yard
have received a serious set back. Many
fine models and patterns of battleships,
their parts and plans, have been de
stroyed and some of them cannot be ob
tained again except by going over the
work mapped out in the beginning.
The fire was first discovered at 0:o0
o'clock and four alarms turned in. The
building was about 100 feet in width
aud o2."» feet long. It was four stories
in height and built of stone and brick.
The wood of the inside was
Thoroughly Saturated With Oil
and the flames rapidly gained headway.
They had completely enveloped the
great machine shop when the firemen
arrived and attention had to l»e paid to
the foundry and other buildings in the
vicinity. Several tunes the flames got a
start on the foundry roof, but the lire
men quickly put them out. A small
corrugated iron building in the rear of
the machine shop was burned, but the
loss on this is insignificant.
The loss to the building is placed at
$300,000: that on the machinery and
lathes in the building $400,000. The
cost of the models and patterns is vari
ously estimated, but officials in the yard
put the total loss at a little over #1,000,
000.
