Why Soms Not Mentioned—Egan
Takes Farewell Jab*—Record
Asked On “Salary Grabs”—
The Joneses at Pierre Not
BY DENNIS O’LEARY.
It has been Btated time and again,
and probably Is true, that some ot
the recognized republican leaders
in South Dakota have been (airly
combing the field in an effort to
find a “suitable” candidate for
governor. The uninitiated may not
know the qualifications which go
to make up a “suitable” candidate.
The two chief specifications are: (1)
Willingness to let the present lead
ers go on leading; (2) ability to
get votes. There may be other
minor considerations, but the two
points listed are the only ones
rated as important.
The leaders can think of prospec
tive candidates who would be easil/
handled but who might have trouble
In getting elected also, they can
think of prospective candidates who
could be elected but who couldn’t
be handled. Enhanced worries
about the right kind of combination
qualifications in a candidate are
not due to more rigid restrictions
on the part of leaders—not at all.
The prospects which would satisfy
them are too numerous to, mention.
There are symptoms of increased
captibusness on the part of voters,
however, and that’s where the wor
ry comes in.
One could suggest a number of
South Dakota republicans of about
the type now needed In the gov
ernor’s chair, but they are men
who couldn’t be handled and will
nftt have the backing of the lead
ers tiwr that reason. Just two sug
gestions probably are enough to
make the point—Lewis Benson and
C. N. Harreid. Mr. Benson has
b#en a member of the house, speak
er of the house and member of the
State senate. No one questions his
ability, Integrity or courage. He Is
a fighter for economy and, efficiency
in state affairs and does not Stand
very well with the heads de
partments or Institutions. Mr. Har
reid was governor of South Dakota
from 1901 to 1905 and made a fine
record as an executive. His pub
lic service did not win him over to
the spoils system, and, since leav
ing office, he has continued as an
earnest and aggressive opponent of
the ^mounting costs Of government.
Strangely ■enough, neither -Mr.
Benson nor Mr. Harreid has ,been
mentioned in the combing4 process.
It is reasonably sale to assert that
the oversight has not been acci
dental. These men are well known
all over South Dakota. The people
of the state, who fcnow what these
men stand dor, might take the bits
In their teeth and call one of them
to the governorship contest, but
there’s little danger of the leaders
taking any initiative In that re
spect. Itt would he worth the price
of admission to sea Lewis Benson
running the governor’s office for
about one term. He’d certainly rat
tle some of the dry bones in the
stateboase—and the dry bones
know It, too.
Exht l« Typical.
George W. Egan goes to prison
with colors flying, as you might
say. He has published a large
farewell advertisement in some of
the state .newspapers, giving the
full text of lad«e C. H. Dillon’s dis
senting opinion In the perjury case,
some messages at condolence from
friends* and a couple of personal
roaat3. The center piece of the
advertisement ts a twolcolumn pic
ture of Egan over the line: “Egan
as he appears today, waiting for the
penitentiary to receive him.’’
There’s oqly one G. W. E, In the
wide, wide world. In the matter of
personal publicity stuff, and hta pro
dnctictas always attract attention
and comment—with a sharp divi
sion of pros and cons. Mr. Egan
has been a personal issue in South
Dakota for more than 10 years and
probably will resume business at
the old stand as soon as he fin
ishes Ills term In prison. The writ
er knew George Egan long before
he located In South Dakota and
never has been an' Egan partisan
in ar.y sense, as he fully 'under
state. In spite of picayunish at
tempts to make prejudiced show
ings to the contrary.

Wants “Salary Grab” Records.
Regular biennial efforts to sqdelch
the “salary grab” issue in* South
Dakota apparently are not going
to be apy more successful in the
present campaign than in the two
previous campaigns. The following
letter from a well-known South
Dakotan is one of several signifi
"The voters or South Dakota, in
the last two elections, have dis
played Intense Interest in the Sal
ary grab, issue—more interest, in
fact, than on any other issue ,
presented. That question is not
closed so long as therq Sre
candidates for office ih this
state who had a part in violating
the language and spirit of the
state constitution merely for the
sake,, of petty personal benefits.
It is no expuSe for these officials
or ex-officials to argue that they
were underpaid. They did not
take or hold the jobs. We con
not ask our citizens to respect the
laws and the constitution and at
the same time bestow political
rewards on' men who flagrantly
violated the constitution. There
is no question about the temper
of the voters on this point. They
only need to be shown where to
strike. Name the candidates.”
Without aspiring to lead or en
thuse uny Indignant hosts, it may
be said that _ records are records.
Those who made tl^e records no
doubt did so advisedly and pre
sumably are willing to "defend them
against all challengers. Most of
the legislators who supported the
original “salary grab” measures have
been retired by loving constituents.
During the unsuccessful attempt to
repeal some of thetspeci*l “expense”
allowances, 1b the Inst session, a
great deal t>f art was employed In
avoiding record votes. Practically
all of the republican ' house mem
bers, however, voted to restore the
legislative “expense” allowance In
the general appropriation bill after
that allowance had been stricken
by the senate. If there was one
exception Is cannot now be called
to mind. The democrats and non
partisan leaguers of the house voted
to sustain the senate action.
As to some of the major candi
dates the records will show: Carl
H. Gunderson, as a member of the
state senate voted tor - one of the
“salary grab" measures. W. H.
McMaster voted for one, as a mem
ber of the state senate, and allow
ed another to become law without
his signature since he became gov
ernor. Only two members of the
present state supreme court were
members of that body when the
first special expense allowances
were made—the first of the vari
ous special measures along that
Mae. The two hold-overs are Judg
es Policy and Oates, both candidates
for reelect ton next year. The elec
tion of Judge C. H. Dillon over
Judge E. G. Smith last year is gen
erally credited to that issue.
Whose Money? Says Buell.
Under a ruling by Attorney Gen
eral Buell Jones, the ^Santa Claus”
tendencies of the state board of
regents (with the state’s money)
has been given a rude jolt. The at
torney general holds that the board
had no right to vote a year’s salary
to Dr. Willis Johnson, applying af
ter Dr. Johnson’s enforced resigna
tion from the presidency of State
college at Brookings.
When he first learned that his
educational scalp had been promised
to one of the leading politicians of
the state, and that certain members
of the board of regentB had been
notified that they must deliver on
the aforesaid promise, Dr. Johnson
was In the mood to kick up a fuss
and resist the action. Then he was
informed that he would be given a
years’B leave of absence on full
pay if he would accept the situa
tion quietly. He decided that ho
would be ousted, anyway, and might
as well “resign voluntarily” and
take the bonus. The board gave
out laudatory resolutions about his
valuable services to the state aad
everything was lovely.

al fight on the bpard and In the city.;
In order to carry out his policies a
city manager would need the back

sion, but doubts easily could arise
about the merits of support secured
and pledged In advance through a
factional organization. The city
commission should be free te ap
prove or disapprove according to
the merits of each situation.
The Guide declares that general
affairs In the city have not received
as much attention under xhe city
manager system as before. Com-i
plaints from all parts of the city’'
have gone unheeded, it says, and
the city manager gave approval to |
work which members of the com-|
mission, on their own investigation, i
found to be faulty.
It’s clear 'enough, anyway, that
systems alone will not alleviate
city woes. The ability, dUllgence
and honesty of officials are factors
which count uuder any system.
