Purpose of Demonstration
is to Present Formal
Demand for State
Owned Indus
Mitchell, S. |D., May 28.—South
Dakota seems to be maintaining its
place in the limelight. It was the
first state to hold primaries and en
ter the presidential race it was the
first to launch the "LaFollette jom,
and it is second only to North Da
ltota In sending a "petition in boots"
to its legislature.
Representatives of termer and la
bor organisations, ranchers, rail
road brotherhoods. World War Vet
erans, Farmers' Union and' Nonpar
tisan Leaguers are planning a huge
demonstration in the way of a "pe
tition in boots" to wait upon the
special session of the legislature
which has been called by Governoi
Korbeck to meet in Pigrre
2 1
Thg 'purpose of the »demonstra
tlon. according to those in chargi
of the arrangements, is to preBem
a formal demand upon the legisla
tors to enact state-owned industrial
enterprise laws which were promts
ed to the people in tke republican
platform of 1918, and which wer
authorized by constitutional amend
ments adopted by a large majority
of the voters at the election of that
year. These laws have not been en
acted, although one regular and one
special session of the legislature
have been held since the adoption
of the amendments.
It 4s expected by those in charge
the arrangements that from twc
thousand to five thousand people
•'from all over the state will join In
this demonstration on June 22, de
pending upon the character of the
weather and the condition of the
roads. The petitioners will parade
.the streets of the capital in the
morning, and in the afternoon
representative committee of the
different organizations will present
a formal demand to ft, Joint sessior
or the'legislature fortlfe speedy en
actment of such measures as they
^consider-essential to-fhe welfare »l
the state.
In the evening a mass meeting
will be addressed from the ca(pitol
steps by Walter Thomas Mills, whe
drafted the Industrial program lawi
of North Dakota and was instru
mental in framing similar laws in
Australia and New Zealand. He will
explain the alleged benefits accru
ing to the people from the operation
of these laws.
