In Tha Be, relative to the need for the
choice, of republican candidate not under
the domination of the corporation will
help shatter tha two-term precedent, state
houaa pnllUclana believe. For aome time
there haa been a feeling that the next
republican convention would hesitate to
renominate any official whoae attitude waa
at all In doubt and the governor's clear
cut declaration baa crystallised that eentl
ment into eXjjreeslon.
Today T. J., Pickett, a Wahoo newspaper
man, waa mentioned In connection with the
land eommlaalonerahlp. Just what It
means baa pot been disclosed, although It

precedent. Pickett was a candidate

manager and call attention to the excel
lence of tha discipline and the education
given tha Inmates. The buildings at the
Institution have been thoroughly over
hauled and planed In good condition. Mr.
IMcBrlen says that he questioned the girls
and found that they compare favorably In
Intelligence with those In the public
choola. They are happy under the pres

to run away.
One feature of tha management which Is
attracting commendation Is tha production

Does Met Affect Big Conntles.
Attorney General Brown said today that
the decision In the Tucker Jury law case
has not affcted the special statute govern
ing Lancaster, Douglas and Gere counties.
There haa been some speculation ss to the
effect of the Invalidation of the new general
act because of the fact that the special
statute Is not complete In Itself, but refers
to the measure governing the atate at
large. It was claimed recently by un-
caster county lawyers that there was some
question as to th special act governing
the three counties having more than 30,0(0
population, but the objection was based
largely on the fact that the session laws
referred to a certain section of the old
statute which had been displaced by a
different provision of the Tucker law. The
Invalidation of the latter has cleared up
doubt on that score, according to Brown.
Made Qalek Work.
Lawvers who were anxiously awaiting a
decision as to the validity or tne lucaer
Jury law were greatly surprised at the
speed with whlcb the supreme court m
oosed of the question. The case was sub
mitted In tha forenoon and In the evening
It was held by the entire court to be un
constitutional and void as a whole. Such
rapidity of action has been excelled only
once. In the register of deeds case, when
tha decision was rendered In little more
than an hour after tha attorneys began to
submit It. Btatehouso officials point to the
outcome In the Jury law case as evidence
that even the Judiciary can act expedi
tloualv when there Is real need. Because
of the Impossibility of applying the pro
visions of the act relative to the selection
of Jurors from tha list, the attorney gen
era! had advised that they withhold action
In criminal cases until the validity of the
act had been passed upon.
It develops that the act was the work
of a young Richardson county attorney,
who believed that he had devised an In
fallible method to Insure the honest and
unprejudiced selection of Jurors by leaving
It entirely to chance. Tucker baa claimed
that It was advocated by tha State Bar
McKIUIp's Real Aim.
Prominent local democrats who hava
sounded Patrick McKllllp. the oratorical
democratic banker of Humphrey, say that
instead of being a candidate for the guber
natorial nomination, he will seek tne con
erassional nomination In tha hope of being
.Me to defeat J. J. McCarthy, who Is
..,it1 to be a candidate for a third
term. McKllllp hopes to be able to win
out In the campaign next year, attributing
his defeat last year to the tremendous
popularity of the president and the as
atstance which It lent the republican can
dldate. Why he allows the use of his name
In connection with the governorship is not
understood, unless it Is designed as a ruse
to keep McCarthy Inactive.
Beet Workere Gala Wealth.
The Russian sugar beet workers who have
been employed In the fields at Grand Island.
North Platte and at Colorado points are
returning to the city by the tralnload with
their hoarded savings. Today two train
loads came In from Michigan, where they
have been working In the beet fields. The
railway officials estimated that there were
flfty families on the two trains, but they
are unusually large. There were rrom
three to nine children In each of tne re
turning households. The fidelity with which
the Roosevelt doctrine is adhered to among
these people Is shown by the fact that one
of the coaches, which was filled to capacity,
represented sixteen tickets. Each family
brings back a considerable sum, varying
with the number of children able to work
In the fields, tha sums ranging from $300
Greene Knows Hoc Raising-.
Today Superintendent Greene of the Din

congratulations of his fellow officials on
his prowess as a farmer. Today a ship

arrangements with the United 8tates Im
migration agent, Mr. Mansfield of Omaha,
for the deportation of Rudolf Steiner, a
young German Jew, who has spent the
last two years In this country roaming
around, hunting for his sweetheart. He al
leges that the young woman ran away from
her parents In Germany and since that
time he has been hunting her. According
to the man's story, the parents of the girl
are wealthy. His father Is a small grocer
In Kattowlts, a small German city. The
man has traveled over a large part of tha
west, visiting the larger cities In his search
for the young woman. Two months ago he

Investigation by Grand Jury Kay Hot B
Began Thii Week,
LAND FENCING STILL UNDER FIRE
Eirltlnt Developments Promised In
Proeerntton of I.aed Filing
Franda by Old Soldiers
from the Homes.
The Investigation of the grain trust cases
may not be reached by the federal grand
Jury this week. The chief business of the
Jury Thursday was the Investigation of the
land-fencing cases and it is the desire of
the Jury to get these out of the way before
taking up the grain cases, as many of the
witnesses In the fencing cases are anxious
to return to their homes.
The liquor selling cases from the Indian
reservations have about all been disposed
of and most of the Indian witnesses sent
to their homes.
There Is a promise of some Interesting
developments along the lines of fraudulent
land filings by old soldiers when the cases
come to trial. It haa thus far been shown
to the Jury there has been a wholesale vio
lation of the laws In the matter of these
filings and they were condoned and solicited
by the Illegal fencers. Most of the filings
examined Thursday were known as the
"Klnkaid law" filings, which permitted the
applicant to enter an entire section of land.
S40 acres. Some of the applicants went
through the form of going onto the land
once and then leased their holdings to the
cattlemen for an Indefinite period.
Another peculiar feature of fhe alleged
filings has been to secure young women to
make filings and go onto the land for a
few days, be generously psld for their fil
ings, lease the land to the cattlemen, he
entertained at the ranches for a day or
two and return to their respective homes
well paid for a very enjoyable outing.

prophet, who said that if a party of those
who were affected by a strange religious
belief would go to South Africa the Lord
would provide for them in that far-off
land, have taken upon themselves the task
of converting to the Christian religion the
Kaffirs W South Africa.
Much Information as to the movements
of the former South Dakotans Is furnished
by a letter which has been received from
one of the crusaders. According to the
letter most of the crusafters are well satis
fied with their lot and still have faith In
Ihelr prophet, who accompanied them to
South Africa. This statement of the
crusader Is expected to set at rest rumors
which had been in circulation that mem
bers of the party looked upon the leader
of the religious exodus as a false prophet
and would abandon him and his work in
South Africa If friends In South Dakota
would furnish them the money for their
return to this state.
The crusader In his letter states that
they now are In a region where they can
see nothing but Kaffirs and kraals. Of the
people whom It Is their Intention to
Christianise he writes: "They live In small
huts, one for each wife, as a heathen
here is allowed to have as many wives as
he can afford to buy. They buv a girl
for from ten to fifteen oxen, and an ox is
worth 175 In American money. If we go
to a kraal where there are ten huts we
will find the man has ten wives.
"They have no floors in their huts, nor
stoves, tables, chairs or beds. They sleep
on the floor and make a fireplace in the
center of the hut. The missionary
out here has plenty to do sll the time, as
we have to be everything such as doctor.

YANKTON, Nov. 23 (Special.) The trial
of Sam Carr, charged with the murder of
i-tranvllle Thornton, June 11 last. Is pro
ceedlng rapidly here and most of the wit-
nesses had been examined when court ad
journed for the day. The story as told
by the witnesses is practically the same
as related at the trial In Justice court and
reveals how Carr, after a violent alterca
tion one Sunday afternoon with Thornton,
finally went Into his house and emerged
with a large caliber gun, with which he
deliberately shot Thornton, who died three
hours later from the wound. The defense
will attempt to prove that the Bhootlng
was done in elf derense, claiming Thorn
ton had a butcher knife in his hand at the
time, which knife was afterward found in
the alley where the shooting took place.
Much interest is being manifested in the
trial, which Is the first trial for murdxr
