GAMBLE Senator Robert J. Gamble is what is commonly termed a self made man. Born and reared on a farm, he secured his education by his own efforts, graduating with honor in 1874 from Law rence University, at Appleton, Wisconsin. Later that institu tion conferred upon him the de ft- gree of LL. D. He studied law and was admitted to the bar, ^practicing his profession with splendid success until he entered -congress. I In the early territorial days he Uocated at Yankton, and has re sided there ever since, an active and highly respected citizen of Ibis community and state. He ,'has always taken a deep interest |yin education, and has long been ^associated with Yankcon College, being a member of the board of trustees and of this corporate board. Politically, Senator Gamble stands today in the highest posi tion ever accorded any repre sentative from South Dakota in .either branch of the national congress. He is chairman of the committee on Indian affairs, which shapes the legislation af fecting every Indian and Indian reservation in the United States.

He iB also a member of the powerful com mittee on appropriations, and stands for judicious, wise and careful expenditure of the public moneys. He is a member of the committee on public buildings and grounds, and also a member of a number of other important committees. It was through the efforts of Senator Gamble and Congress man Burke that the settlers on this reservation were saved $400 for each and every quarter sec tion of land that was proved up. Senator Gamble will speak at |$ie Sisseton Agency on Monday, May, 27, at 2 o'clock p. m., and af the court house in Sisseton on the same date, at 7:30 p. m., and everygne who possiblycan should .t and hear th^ issues of a man who knows. |S#nator Gamble is a pleasant, |*ery-day sortof a man, and all who can possibly do so should «nd meet him, even ^^Otough they do not agree with No one ever connected with South Dakota public service from United States senator to any ordinary appointive office under •the state administration has 'given more universal satisfaction to all classes of citizens irrespec tive of party than Congressman Chas. H. Burke. Mr. Burke has been one of the few men out of nearly 400 in each session of con gress who always remained on the job and always been present when any measure of importance has been up for vote or final dis position. It is a noteworthy fact that Mr. Burke has frequently sacrificed his own interest politi cally and personally to attend to the public business of the na tion and South Dakota in par ticular. The fact that we have such a representative in congress ha* made it a prominent feature in South Dakota political annals. There never was a public servant but what some one would oppose and at this time there are a couple of individuals running for congressman in opposition to Mr. Burke for the nomination in June, but it is undoubtedly a fact that Mr. Burke will continue to show an increased popularity when the votes are counted in June. The other day a prominent farmer called at this office, and, exhibiting a sample ballot, point ed to the names of Andrew Mar vick, J. W. Barrington. T. A. Gunnarson and Henry Helvig, candidates on the aforesaid bal lot. and remarked: "Those four men are stockholders and direc tors in the Citizens National Bank. That bank has five direc tors why don't they let the other director run for office, too?" Later in the day the farmer dropped in again, and asked if we didn't think it would be a good plan to have the coun ty give the Citizens National Bank a quit claim deed of the court house and save all the ex pense of holding elections. J. F. Halladay, of Iroquois, who has been boosting the state of South Dakota through his newspaper, the Iroquois Chief, for the past twenty years, is a candidate for national committee man on the republican ticket. "Dick" Halladay is a man you can tie to, and if he is honored with the position—which, by the way, is purely an honorary one, with no salary attachment,— every republican in South Dakota can absolutely depend mm On Several "prominent" politicians from Summit and Wilmot were in the city, this week, and the machine held "a small select meeting" which was "kept mum." At this meeting the machine decided that the voters should elect the machine candi dates—Minder, Jorgenson, Mar vick, Engstrom, Barrington, et al. Every voter in the Second con gres&ional district, which in cludes this county, who has made any study of the matter* realizes that Chas. H. Burke deserves the united support of the re' publ icai^ voters,,at the June pri ma»es-&b "Are the people bigger than the tosses?" You are the peo ple, and it is up to you to decide the question on Tuesday, June 4. i" n-ii Their Most Loyal Chatmpion From all over the state comes comment favorable to Senator Robert J. Gamble, for his re election. The people of the state realize that Mr. Gamble has been their most loyal champion at all times when anything pertaining to the progress and the prosperi ty of the state was at stake. You always know right where he is. No matter what the issue, the senator never vaccilates or equivocates, but comes out squared-toed for what he thinks is right, and you have no doubt at any time as to where he stands upon any question which arises. During his term of office at Washington he has become a most valuable man for South Dakota. He has been found true and tried, and he stands high the estimation not only of th? j,'iesiuent, but also of his col leaguts in both houses of con gress. He is known as a fighter down at Washington, and he never side-steps an issne. He is right there every time to answer for himself when the roll is call ed, and he fearlessly states his opinion and his preference, even though at times his vote may make him unpopular with somi of his constituents. Whenever there is anything at slake which is needed for the state he goe.« after it, and fights for :c until he gets it, and tl at is what we admire about Mr. Gamble. As chairman of the committee on Indian affairs he holds one of the most important offices in the senate. He is wise in legisla tion, dignified and unafraid in debate and in presenting the wis es of his constituents, and it would be a very foolish move to trade him off now for a candidate who would be years in teach'ng the powerful place now occupied by Senator Gamble, especially at this time, when Mr. Gamble can do his state and his constituency the most good.—Hudson liudson ite. No Factions in Byrne Campaign. The campaign for the nomina tion of Frank M. B.vrne is entire ly separated from affiliation with any factional campaign organ ization in the state. The support which is coming to Mr. Byrne is strongly from the stalwart as well as from the progressive element in the party, and Mr. Byrne stands before the people of the state today, less a faction al candidate perhaps than any man whose name goes before the people. The Byrne headquarters are located at Redfield, and are in charge of T. S- Everitt, who, in conversation with the Argus Leader, says the reports indicate a rapidly growing sentiment fo Byrne. This is certainly true in this part of the state, and par ticularly in Minnehaha county, which is gradually working its way out of the famous "crazy belt." Thirty days ago it looked like a hard .fight for Mr. Byrne today it IOOKS like easy money. Argus-Leader. getting a squrae deal in all matters de cided by the national committee man. A vote for J. F. Halladay will be a vote for one of the squarest men in the state- Quality Lumber Means Economy these days because it eliminates a lot of hard hand work on the part of the carpenter and enable^ him to do a larger day's work. Particularly is this' true of- our finishing lumber and flooring, and by having it smoothly dress ed right at the mill, where they are equipped with machines that permit of a speed of 200 lineal feet a minute, the best results are obtained at a minimum cost There are a lot of new wrinkles used these days in the manufac ture of lumber that bring the actual cost of house erection down to rock bottom, and' the effects to be gained by the use of different woods are almost .won derful.

Mr. Egan received 81 totes in Grant county two years ago, and we do not know where he 'will get that many this year. As lo the necessary qualifica tions for the governorship of our fair state, proud of its achieve ments in the past and, proud of the record its officials, there is no comparison between Mr. Egan, the speeeh-maker and Mr. Byrne, the statesman, the pioneer who hits grown up with the state and knows the needs of the citi zens of every walk in life and who lias a record of accomplish ment behind him.—Big Stone Headlight.
