Mr. Hall is slowly recovering from a severs accident, which occurred several weeks ago, resulting iu the breaking of his left leg in two places. Mr. Hall has I een a great sufferer.but his recov ery will be complete and especially gratifying to his friends throughout the state, who feared that he would be permanently lame. Mr. Hall,although unable to take active part in the late political campaign, is especially grati fied with the result, in both state and nation. Mr. Hall will go to Washington as soon as he is able to lay crutches, to be there New aside bis a few days piior to the opening of congress, in order to line up some important matters which he started iu the interest of his state and which he hopes to have passed before his term expires. Im mediately thereafter he will turn hix whole attention to his law and the seeutiug business of a competence. His strut attention to public duties has necessitated his refusing much pro fitable law business and has Iteeu a distinct loss to him in a financial way, and he b&s readied an age now where he feels that he should be mitted to give his time to hia professional business. per and attention MAY DELAY THE CANAL Subterranean Lake Found Under 8lte of Proposed Lock.

Nov. 8. The campaign is over in Foutii Dakota, and the demo rats are whipped good and plenty The republicans have not only elected the presidential electors, but have also made a clean sweeu of the state ticket The defeat of Lee for governor is a dis ippointment to a great many, both democrats and republicans, but his de teat does not rest heavily on Mi. Lee. He did not want to make the run for governor and only accepted the nomi nation at the mgent request cf his closest fiiends. It was lelieved that lie could poll a far larger vote than any other man that could be named. And he did. But at that he is defeat ed by nearly 17,0(10 votes. Had the democrats abandoned everything and made the fight for Lee alone, they might have snccfeded in electing him governor. But this was not the case They devoted their efforts towards electing the entire ticket and lost everything. There is one thing very commend able about the campaign which Mr Lee conducted. He showed no mer cenary streak, and instead of rushing liis own candidacy to the limit, he went in for the democratic cause from top to bottom. Mr. Lee time and again expressed the desire to have the legislature with him, or else he would just as soon not lie elected. He want ed the state to go for Bryan, and said HO iu every speech that he made. He could have received the support of re publican newspapers for a considera tion for himself, but did not feel that it was an honest proposition, since the same papers would be opposed to Bry an, and the iest of the state ticket. He might have won, but the victory would not have had any pleasures for him had he oeen compelled to stand alone. The defeat of Mr. Lee is a sur prise all along the line. Few there were who would predict otherwise than that he would win. But in the lust two weeks of the campaign the republican management abandoned everything else and went in to save Vessey. The only regretable feature is that mud slinging was resorted to. and that Mr. Lee's character was as sailed, both at home and abroad. The impression was scattered broadcast that lie was not only an immoral man, but also that ne was in league with the saloon forces as against the prohibi tionists. All such arguments were used against him, and they had the desired effect. Chairman Dick Lyons has little to say regarding the defeat cf the demo ratic ticket. He fetls that the state management did everything |in its power to win, and attributes defeat to the fact iliat the normal republican majority was too big to overcome. The campaigo tund was none too large at any time, and much that might have been done could not be considered becatuo of lack of money THE LAWS Anti-Salooon League OftHW That County Option Carried Sioa* Falls, Nov. 8.—Her. Gratfon, president of the State AntI Saloon league composed of the "vote yes"peo ple in the county option tight, now comes forward with a claim of a ma joiity for their side of 2,000 votes in South Dakota. The saloon people claim the state by fS.000. Two of the proposed state laws* county option and Sunday closing were turned down, accoiding to all in dications from the election. The quail protection law cariied probaoly. It is impossible to get complete figures on the votes for or against the lavvH until after the canvassing boards for the various counties meet. Much comment is heard about the form of the ballots, which was such that manv believed they were voting "no" on the county option law, when they leally voted "no"' on the divorce law. The saloon men, who opposed the passage of the county option law, while confident of victory, state that they would have carried the county op tion fight by a big majority had they had the "Yes" and "No" printed at the head of the county option column. Complete returns from the precincts of two cwunties—Yankton and Davison give majoiities of 400 and i00, re •pectively, for the passage of the di vorce law requiring a six months residence. Minnehaha county ga\e its vote against the law, according to incomplete returns from the various precincts. So far, returns would in dicate that the divorce law had car ried, and that hereafter imported di vorcees will have to remain a full year instead of six months, and will have to air tueir family tioubles in open court, instead of confining them to the judges' chambers. The law prohibiting Sunday base ball and theaters where admission is charged unquestionably lost, as far as reported, Accoiding to the available information gathered from the incom plete returns, the vote was t*\o ont' nuainst it. While these results are given for their face value, the canvassing boards may change the appearance gieatly The canvassing board in all the coun ties meet on or before next Tuesday, Nov. 10. Figures probably will be obtainable Thursday for Minnehaha county and the returns from the state will probably be sufficient then to an nounce safe majoiities one way or the other. 14 i i & a i Simple Operation In the Retire mint of a President. SAD BUT MEMORABLE EVENT. Veteran Disbursing Officer of Execu tive Mansion Describes His Emotions When Saying Qoodby to Different Presidents. On the 4th of next March the presi dent of the United States will leave the White House and drive to the capltol with William Howard Tat't, who Is to become his successor, and the president of the United States will go to the White House to take up the reins of government. For Mr. Taft It will be the proudest day in the hiBtiry of his life. For Theodore Roosevelt It will be a memorable anniversary, tinged with the sadness which, sin^e the beginning of tl* nation, has been felt by every ex-president of the United States. The retirement of a president from the White House Is a pathetic mile stone in the lives not only of the pres ldent and his family, but in the lives of the household staff of the mansion, says the Boston Herald. Many of these officials, caretakers and serv ants have served for years. The aver age term of a president nowadays is eight years, and in this time friend ships are formed between the family of the executive and the people gath ered about them to serve them. Presi dent Roosevelt's young children have practically spent their childhood in the White House. The leave taking will be naturally sorrowful for them, as well as for the doorkeepers, messengers and attendants who have been their companions for seven years. The actual moving of one family out of and another family into the White House is a simple operation, attracting in itself but little attention on the part of the families concerned and none at all on the part of the general public. Preparations are being made In ad vance, personal effects quietly packed and possessions sent to the future home. The leave taking on the part of the retiring president, his wife and children consists only of the goodbys said and the handshakes given, for the White House is entirely furnished by the government. In the winter the president will be gin preparations for leaving, the de tails of which will be under the per sonal direction of Secretary Loeb and Colonel Bromwell, superintendent of public buildings and grounds. In the first place, all the papers which have accumulated in the White House dur ing the last seven years will be care fully looked into by the president and his office staff. All personal papers will be packed and sent to Oyster Bay. All official papers and documents will be sent to the various executive de partments of the government, accord ing to the usual custom. Then the per sonal effects of the Roosevelts will be packed and early in the year will be sent to the Sagamore Hill home under Mr. Loeb's directions. Of those who have long been associ ated with the White House none will witness the departure of the Roosevelt family with greater regret than Colonel W. II. Crook, the veteran disbursing officer of the White House, who enter ed the executive mansion service in the first term of President Lincoln and has been there ever since. He has seen every president say farewell to the White House since the war. "The departure of a president is one of the saddest things I know," said Colonel Crook. "I am scarcely able to describe the emotions I have felt la saying goodby to the different presi dents under whom I have served and the members of their families. I be "eve I never felt quite so badly as when President Cleveland retired at the close of his first term, and perhaps they felt it keenly too. Mrs. Cleveland remained until the last moment on the morning on March 4, loath to take her departure. She visited the different rooms, looking at the pictures, gaxing out of the windows. I went to her to say goodby and found her taking leave of old Jerry Smith, one of the old time colored servants of the White House. 'Jerry,* said Mrs. Cleveland, "keep everything in good order until I come back.' "Mrs. Cleveland evidently believed that her husband would later be re elected president, and her faith was vindicated, for he was, and Mrs. Cleve land did come back, and Jerry Smith had everything as she liked it. She gave me a bunch of violets when she said goodby to me. I have that faded bouquet still and would not part with it. "When Mrs. Grant retired from the White House she went around the building and shook hands with every one and said goodby. Mrs. Lincoln's departure was the saddest I ever wit nessed. President Lincoln was assas sinated on April 14. 1865. and died the next morning. The blow fell with the force of a bolt from a clear sky. Presi dent Johnson took up his headquarters in the treasury building for ten days, in which time Mrs. Lincoln made her sorrowful preparations to leave. "The goiug away of Mrs. Garfield was sad, too, but General Garfield lin gered for a long time before his death, and the blow to his wife was not so sudden as that to Mrs. Lincoln. Mrs. McKinlcy returned to the White House after the assassination, but she never returned after she had accompanied her husband's remains to Canton." Most of the presidents have left Washington immediately after the ln tttgurattoa of tbeir mceuuom, Suite 4-5 Smith-Garner Blk. Electric Light#.
