siH'iit some little timo in traveling
through North and South Dakota recent
ly, and I nm strongly impressed with tho
changes that havo taken place since 1885.
At that timo tho Dakota wero beginning
to feel tho depression following tho
years of "boom" nml inflation incident
to tho completion of the Northern Pacific
road In tho north and the rapid immigra
tion in tho south. There was no crash
and little distress, but tho influx of popu
lation to a country suited to agriculture,
but witli scarcely the scratch of a plan
on hundreds of square miles of its broad
level lauds, demanded capital, and tho
many young men who had como west
with little but brain, muscle und energy
wero forced to look oWwhero for em
ployment. The South Dakota of today is on a
much more substantial footing than in
tho days of glistening promises and wild
eyed booms. Irrigation in some parts
and tho certainty of more regular crops
will make her a healthy state. Tho new
ly ojienetl lands of the Sioux reservation
beyond tho Missouri river make room for
a Inrgo imputation, but South Dakota is
by no means putting forward tho temj
tations of former years to induce immi
gration. Sho wants capital and offers
safe investment and fair returns for it.
Tho Dakota of the early eighties was an
uncultivated plain, the parad-.so of tho
real estate speculator and tho boom
shark. Two things work tho dillercuco

Sincii I came to this Htv I have hccii two

Considered purely from the financial
ulamlpoiiit or that of piogressin nun's
profession or business, olllceholding, par
ticularly olllceholdlng that takes ono
away from home, Is a misfortune The
salaries paid government officials hero
look huge and inviting mi paper. At a
distance they aie qiiitnenchanting. lean
seo how one living in a country town
might envy theiuan who coi.ici to Wash
ington to take a governn'i 'lit jsist at a
salary or iJ'.I.OOO, $1,000 or $1,500 a year.
Theto me very Tow places here which pay
more than this. Members or congresa get
only $0,000 a year mid ure able to spend
one-hull' their time at home attending to
private business. They do not find it
absolutely necessary to transfer their
domestic establishments to this city. Hut
even nienibe-s of congress generally find
ofllceholding a poor investment. Not one
in a doyen of them saves money, and the
majority upend nunc than they earn.
Much less fimiruhlo is tho positio-i of
the mail who takes an executive position
at some such salary as that which I have
spoken or. What N'oinod i o largo to him
back in the states dwindles into a mere
pittance when he conies hero to earn
draw and to spend it. Take as a con
venient example thoca.io of a man who
is lucky enough, as ho thinks, to get a
1,000 place. Ho is indeed lucky to get
so good a place, if a place he must take,
for these are the prizes of olllceholding,
and those who start out lor them gener
ally accept .000, C.50l) or .:i,000 postn
in the end. Accustomed to tho cheaper
living expenses which aro sufficient at
his home, tho new olllcial imagines he
must and may easily live in good style at I
Washington. He has eojno down hero
to ho a part of tho great government.
Ho has been honored by the appoint
ment, and having become a man of im
portanco ho wants to live in style befit
ting his station. This is a laud'ablo mu
nition and an entirely natural one under
Accordingly tho new official and his
wife start house liuntiu; . They have
their snug little homo in the country
and do not euro to furnish up another
abode. So they conclude they will rent
a furnished house. The first ono they
enter suits them exactly. It is elegant,
roomy, prettily situated, comfortable.
They practically decide to lake it, but
the price takes tlieir breath away when
they hear it .'50 a month. "Wo don't
want to buy your house, only to rent it,"
exclaims tho official to tho agent. Then
they look at some moro modest houses.
Tin prices range from ijaiOO a mouth
lowu V 150. Thoso which rent at tho
hitter firieo tiro-not very desirablo.. Hut
own ono of these takes for rent alono
more than one-third of the salary.
Tho wife being of a practical' turn.of
mind concludes that furnished Iioufcs
are not economical; that too much i-i be
ing paid for furniture, mid that it would
bo better to rent a house and furnish it
themselves, Ono in finally found at a
rental of $80 a month, anil this is far
from the elegant and fashionable struc
ture they had desired. Tho wife had
planned to do a good deal of entertaining
for tho glitter of Washington society
had caught her imagination and there
fore a house with spacious parlors was
on her programme. The $S0 house is only
tolerable, but thoy take it an n matter of
necessity, though witli great reluctance.
Now it must bo furnished. Here again
their cjutltrd iih'jts havo to lie modified.
It chances they have had an opjKirtunity
to set foot within some of tho tine house's
of the city, and as they are to be in soci
ety thoy naturally desire to live amid
elegant and creditable surroundings.

estimate on the furnishings. After hav

I ceives how many aro still lacking. Witli
this condition before them this condi
tion instead of the theory on which they
had started out they find there is lint
one thing to do, mid this is to abandon
tho house idea altogether and board. It
will never do, they conclude, to give up
for rent and fcrniture alono all their sal
ary for a year, for they know too well
that when through with the furniture
they can never hell it formoie than a
third of its cost.
Now they go to look for a place to
board. Tliey have children, and of course
tho children are to como on. Tho eldest
daughter is to havo a glimpse of Wash
ington society. Tho mother is intensely
ambitious for her. A pictty sunt has

the new official, rare all this time? Not
very well. It - hard to be cut oft from
tho society of his family. Ho has never
tried that lief ore mid doesn't like it. Ht
wants tlio boys, and tlio baby, mid the
mother by his side. Besides, the work is
anything but fascinating. Not too hard,
it is humdrum mid routine. It calls for
no enthusiasm; it presents no stimulus
for energy or ambition. He soon realizes
ho is a mere part, and n small pari at
that, of a great machine. In the town
whence he came ho is lookodup to as u
man of some importance, and the folks
ut homo take genuine satisfaction in the
envy of tlieir neighbors and this isu lit
tle consolation but in Washington the
new olllcial quickly peiceives he is veiy
small potatoes and not many to the hill,
and this hurts his pride.
Ho has not wived a cent out of what at
first seemed to be such a splendid salary.
On the contrary, he has incurred a large
debt. To tide over ho sold the house or
other property at homo and must now
race the world practically where ho
raced it when ho was a young man. Ho
must begin life over again. Ho has lost
hii law practice or his business at home.
In many ways he has lost status. Com
petition is keen in thin world, and tho
man who steps aside from a given field
oven for four yearn need not expect to
return at tho end of that time and find
his phico unoccupied. But this is not
half m serious as tlio chango that has
come to tho man himself. He has de
teriorated in strength, spirit and energy.
Ho is no longer fit for conquest. The
odds aie that ho will never again be tlio
man he was.
Tliis is not an imaginary picture. If I
choso to do to, I could describe not ono

und other particulars. Of course therr
aio exceptions, cases in which office
holding leads to valuable connections,
