WHERE DOES HK LIVE?

Is he a resident of South Dakota or
of Nebraska?" quered IVputy Superin
tendent McBrien of the attorney general
Friday morning as he handed the attorney
letter from the county superintendent
of public instruction for Sioux county,
in reference to Uie legal status of the
school director of school district No. 88,
Sioux county. The predicament of the
school director, whose name is not given
n the letter, demonstrates that a man
can get himself into a legal tangle which
will bother the supreme courts of two
slates, with very little effort. The at
torney general and his assistants have
used up several tabs of paper and a doz
en pencils and it is still undetermined
whether the director is a resident of So.
Dakota or of Nebraska.
HOUSE IS ON THE LINE.
Sioux county is ooe of the northern
counties of the state und borders on the
state line between Nebraska and South
Dakota. School district No. 88 of Sioux
county also borders on the line and the
school directors owns a farm which is
divided by the line. It is a large and
extensive farm and Mr. Director lives in
a house on the farm, which issituated or,
the state line. The line runs through
the bed room occupied by the director.
Struck by the possibility of the thing the
director was placed his bed on the line
so that he sleeps in both Nebraska and
South Dakota und this is what causes
the trouble. His farm is situated in
school district No. 38 in Nebraska and
school district No, 52 in South Dakota.
He has several children and sends some
of them to the Nebraska school house
and others to the South Dakota school
HE IS ON TWO BOARDS.
As the director is one of the big land
owners and tax payers in the Nebraska
school district his neighbors decided to
elect him school director of the district.

Dskota his neighbors in that slate also
honored him with an election to the
school directorship of the South Dakota
school district. The two elections oc
curred about the same time and Mr. Di

satisfaction of his neighbors. Recently
the county superintendent of Sioux Co.
learned the stale of uffairs and informed
the director that he must resign one of

see it that way, as he is fully qualified lo

to both offices. He is a man wlio does
not take much interest in politics and?
consequently has not voted at tlie general
elections in either state, but he is the
"whole thing" when it comes to school
affairs. He cannot be held guilty of tlie,
violation of the general election laws.
THE LEGAL TANGLE,
The school election laws of South Ua-i.
kota specify that the man voter must be
a resident of the United States one year,,
of the state six months, of the county
three months and of the district on pre
cinct thirty days. The director- heir al
these qualifications and a few more.
The school laws of Nebraska provide,,
that the voter must be 21 years of age.,
have resided in the district forty daysv,
owning real or personal property subject
to assessment, or the parent of children t
ef school age. The director also has ul('
of these qualifications and a few to spare,.
According to the requirements of either
state he is a resident of Uiit stale. He
could not be prosecuted for voting at
two different school elections, as he was
qualified to vote in South Dakota and
consequently his vote there was legal,
South Dskota could not prosecute him
until he had violated tier election law,
Nebraska cannot prosecute him if he is ft.
jitiZn of the state, for he has not voted
twice in Nebraska and has the necessary
qualifications to vote once. If either state
