Womr Suffrage Amendment
"Dead for This Session.
Provision Therefor Pastes Lower
Branch of Legislature Without Op
position—Bill Creating a Board of
Veterinary Examiners Meets Ap
|MTOval—Measure Compelling Hotels
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
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
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

would come under settlement if sec
tlona might be taken, but which
would scarcely ever

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.
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*
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.
