LAID TO REST IN THE HOUSE Womr Suffrage Amendment "Dead for This Session. WHITE PLAGUE SANITARIUM Provision Therefor Pastes Lower Branch of Legislature Without Op position—Bill Creating a Board of Veterinary Examiners Meets Ap |MTOval—Measure Compelling Hotels to Take Out Licenses Adopted. Pierre, Feb. 8.—The hopes of the equal suffragists went glimmering when their attempt to revive the amendment previously defeated wuh sent to the table. When the house took up the proposition it substituted the senate resolution for the house measure, then by a very large major ity knocked out the property qualifica tion, letting It stand an absolute equal suffrage without any strings upon It, and when every one thought the whole matter was settled and the amendment would be certainly sub mitted the roll call found but forty seven members favoring the submis sion. l^aklngs gallantly moved recon sideration, but without avail and the incident Is closed for 1909. Or. Ratte's bill for the establishing Jt a sanitarium for consumptives at Custer passed the house with only four dissenting votes. It carries $10, 000 for preliminary buildings and $&, 000 for the first year's expenses, as only Indigent patients will be treated at the expense of the state, others paying the cost. The institution is placed under the jurisdiction of the state board of charities and correc tions. Upon the passage of the bill Dr. Ratte made a speech notable in South Dakota legislative eloquence. His appeal was Irresistible, lie wan followed scarcely less effectively by Issenhuth and Taylor and not a word was said In opposition. Though th* sentiment, of the legislature is most pronounced for cconomy and hostile to additional Institutions the matter of beginning a fight upon the white plague is of so paramount Importance that tne modest provision war grant ed almost unanimously. Scarcely a member but has recently hr.ffered in his family or among intimate friends from tho scourge, although South Da kota is unusually free from it, out side the Indian communities. •ft to have trifled veterinary surgeon3 in the future If the senate follows the lead of the house. For twenty years the veterinaries arid the horse doctors have been at war In this state and every session of the legislature has witnessed a red hot battle and until this week the horse doctors have prevailed, but finally they have been routed, foot, horse and dragoons. The Abbott bill ere ates a board of veterinary examiners and in most things is modeled after the medical examiners bill. Horse doctors who have followed the calling in the Btate for five years will not be disturbed, but all others must pass muster and no new man can engage In practice until he is thoroughly pre pared and licensed. Wyman's hotel license bill has passed the house. It requires every house dispensing public entertainment to pay a license fee graduated accord ing to the size of the establishment and ranging from $2 to $25. These establishments must be safely equipped against fires and be kept cleanly. The bill minutely provides for sanitation and the hotel Inspector may summarily close an establishment until it conforms to the requirements It is the traveling men's bill and is a good improvement upon the Resent law, which provides for the Inspection of all public houses of ten or more rooms, but does not require a license, and which does not apply to the small houses of less than ten guest rooms. The small houses are generally most to need of regulation. Municipal elections are held upon several different dates, according to whether the municipality has a spe cial charter, is organized under the general law for the regulation of cit ies or under the town law. Conse quently it is possible for the liquor Interests to maintain a "floating Sang," who move around from place to place and vote wet at the elections where the issue Is raised. To prevent this colonization the senate has passed Andres' S. B. 68. making all municipal elections of every sort to fall uni formly on the third Tuesday in April Mr. Kinney also has a bill In the house directed at the same evil, which Qfeates a penalty for voting in more tl| an one town at a municipal elec tion in one year. There Is a question ftfeout the constitutionality of the lat ter provision provided the voter can •how the required constitutional qualifications. Dr. Bentley's resolution memorializ ing congress to classify the rough lands devoid of timber and minerals a*4 permit $40-acre homesteads upon them has paased an important the house. This is and proper memorial. The mid section homestead bills failed, they should, because they did not .fat th# classification of the pttbtic lands and the designation by jpi of Uwm 4ir Mgned for the big fafms. Skirting $(i* Black Hills and in the bad lands there is a good deal of land which would come under settlement if sec tlona might be taken, but which would scarcely ever lit occupied la quarter sections. The general policy of the state re-1 lating to the management of the school lands has long been a subject Of public debate. One party believes they should as speedily as possible be converted into cash and the energies of the department be devoted to the management of the Investments. The other party regards it as a mistake that any part of the school lands were disposed of, but that they should from the beginning have been rented for agricultural purposes and the lands held as a permanent investment by the state. General Beadle, the author of tho $10 maximum, favors holding the lands permanently. Against, this It is urged that renters will manage the lands badly, allowing them to become foul and worthless, and that at the same time large areas of land will be kept off the tax rolls and will not be improved and made homes that renters will not build habitations upon the state lands and that the state will always be com pelled to put up with the poorest and most shiftless of the renters, while the enterprising ones will take the lands of individuals who are in a posi tion to give them buildings and con cessions which the state could not un dertake. All these points were threshed out In a general debate over the passage of H. J. R., submitting a constitutional amendment permitting the school lands to be leased for agri cultural purposes. The resolution passed the house on Thursday, secur ing 89 votes. It looks now as If we are to return to -the primitive practice of electing county commissioners from districts by the voters thereof. That was the plan before 1901, when for a political reason the Republicans adopted the present law for the election of com missioners from districts by the elec tors at large. This gave Republican control of several counties then dom inated by Democratic boards. The Democrats have always opposed the present law and sought for its repeal. The senate last week passed the Arne son bill restoring the old method and it bids fair to go through the house. •J* Interest upon registered state war rants has always been 7 per cent and the state at this time Is paying 7 per cent on more than $500000, though she can borrow all the money she wants at 4 or 4V&. Senator Ewert in troduced a bill reducing the Interest to 6 on registered warrants, which was amended to 5, and passed the senate. The warrants will find as ready a market at 5 as at 7 and the state will be the gainer by several thousand dollars annually. Senator Seward has a bill which has passed the senate which entirely changes the common law rule relat ing to evidence in some particulars. It is S. B. 125, providing that an ad verse party may call any party to an action and cross-examine him without being bound by his testimony, but may then rebut and refute it. The common law is that a party may not Impeach tho testimony of his owa Wit* ness. We have from the adoption of the Australian ballot nearly twenty years ago had much trouble with the ar rangement of party tickets upon it. Generally this has been left to the county auditor, who has at his dis cretion placed the party with which he was identified first and the others In such order as to be least advantage ous to the leading opposition. To se cure uniformity and fairness Zlebnck has provided that the parties shall be placed upon the ballot In the order of their strength, the strongest party in the first place and so on down the list the strength of parties to be de termined by the vote lor governor at the last election. T&i house hat passed the bill. There was not a single vote in either house against the bill to in crease the limit of expenditure upon the new capltol to $800,000. The bill provides that marble shall be used throughout inside, where the original specifications provided for imitation marble and cast iron. It gives the commission full power to provide the mural decorations at their discretion and to adopt any plan they may deem expedient for the improvement of the grounds. It is generally understood the lake scheme will go. At the east end of the capltol park is a depres sion, known locally as Hllgers gulch, across which Capitol avenue passes upon a high embankment. The plan involves reinforcing this embankment with concrete, making a dam or catch basin, into which the surface water of the back country will fall, making a lake of about ten acres in extent. The evaporation will be overcome by bor ing an artesian well on the hill above the park and from this well draw water for the fountains and gas to produce the power and hefct and light for the capitol building. The anti-treatlng bill, which caused so much Interest two years ago, has again passed the house by an in Creased vote. The German members generally favor it and Its author, Mr. Dlngsor of Grant county, is a loading German member. An attempt, to in ject a frivolous amendment into it, making it apply to candy, ice cream and gum, was voted down very prompt ly. The senate two years ago killed the measure with a tie vote. Its fate this time is uncertain. TO JOIN RELIGION AND EDUCATION Aim of Association Meeting in Chicago.
