Ith only" a elngl day Intervening unUl
election file republican of South Dakota
are confident of making ft clean aweep
t the 'lection Tuesday. Th democrat
have waged an aggressive campaign, but
they ha v lacked telling argumente and be
cause of JUie exceedingly prosperous condi
tion In the atat have been greatly handi
capped throughout the campaign.
They have been unable to find an over
shadowing lieu whloh would attract the
voters upon which to baae their campaign,
but have jddne their beat under the circum
stances and will have at least to their credit
th fact that on several occasions during
the campaign they succeeded by their
clamor In (momentarily alarming the more
Their campaign haa been waged largely
tn the allegations that republican atate ad
mlnletratlona have been extravagant, but
til republicans hava been able to com
pletely refute all these charges of extrava
gance and how that tha affaire of tba state
under republican rula hava been honestly
and economically administered.
Among other thlnjra, the democrat have
ueed the following figures, representing
stats expenditures Which they claimed were
substantiated by the records. In the effort
to prove their eharges of extravagance
made agalnat republican state admtnls
4 rations: '
Appropriations made under Governor
l.ee, m to 1W9. S2,7H; appropriations
made under" Governor Lee, IS to lfc)l, t917
380; under Governor Crawford. 1907 to 190.
1.721.C00. v .
In answering charge of extravagance In
connection with the above figures the re
publicans "hav pointed W that It la ev
ident to any fair-minded peraon that the
latter Hern, state expenditures Under Gov
ernor Crawford from viqf7 to, 1908, can be
nothing more than an estimate until 1900
shall arrive some two .months hence.. It
also has been pointed out that It Is certain
that the expenditures ,fpr this period will
be Substantially smaller than the amount
claimed by. the democrats.
It also Is certain, for the atate records
make It xy that the expendlturea of Gov
ernor Lee's administration from 1857 to 1801,
as given above, are, much smaller than
the y should , be, because. -pf neglect to make
appropriation : that th following repub
lican , administration. . .was consequently
obliged to provide for.
Assuming for the sakeof srgume'nt that
the figures presented by'ths democrats are
correct and fair, there ar other facts to
bs taken Into consideration, and this the
democrats have entirely neglected to do.
(Mr Instance, how do expenditures during
the tfi'o periods mentioned compare With
assessed valuation? 'Are state expendlturea
today .greater or less than under Governor
Lee' administration, when compered with
Ute assessed Valuation of the two periods?
;The assessed valuation of all taxable
property In South Dakota Increased from
lia.U0,9 In to $2S3,6B,26$ Jo, 19Q6 en
Increase of 140 per cent . In ten -year. , Ao
cording to . Ur figures "presented 'by rh
democrats, t expenditures Increased from
(SAW to, i.'7zi,,poq during', tha wnV'fa
years, an Increass. of only 17 per cent.
', Admitting all that, the democrat claim,
atat expenditure have not. kept pace
with the Increase In J valuation by mors
than 4 per cent. Or, ro pvt It the other
way, the republican administration of Gov
ernor Crawford hat salved 4o-th taxpayers
f South Dskota mor then 40 per oent
mora than the -much vaunted administra
tion of .Ooyernor Lee, wben Increased valu
ation Is compared With, expenditure during
the two periods.
The actual saving . la much more thaa
that, t can be proven .by the records, but
th above u tha way It figure out even
when the democrats' own figures ar ac
cepted. : ' . ; . .

consistent supporter of what ar known
a th stalwart republicans and who waa
th last atalwart governor of th atate,
evidently 1 on of thos who look upon
a primary as being the same as a con

result of th primary, as only by doing

"Ten, I am, and am unable to see how
any republican or any oitlsen who voted

JOHNSTOWN. Neb., Nov l.-tSpeclal.)-Thursday
night the- large auditorium here
was well .(Died by ar.' audience composed
of representatives of all parties to listen
to the exposition of republican national and
state policies. Myers of Newport, candi
date for stat senstor, opened in proceed
ings with an account of hi former legis
lative -work and of what he propoeed to
ttcmpt hereafter,. If .elected. ; .1
Mr. Myi?rs waa followed by Congressman
M. P. Klnksld, candidate for, re-election,
who In a speech of surprising -eloquence
and force, held , the .attention of his audi
ence for ovtr an hour. He first gav th
history of the homestead bill which bears
his name, denying flatly that his preOe-
cessor had orlatnated the bill ki any form
whatever and that though h had drwn
up What was known as th "two section"
bill, It hod never been presented 'and that
If compared with th "Klhttald," bill It
would be found that not a line of It bad
been taken from the old and abandoned
two wtlon" b'tl. ' " '
As to the adverse criticism msde In re
gard to the lmnrovero'nt required of th
homesteader and the der.iat f the privilege
to commute, Mr. Klnksld said these fea
tures wer net to be charged to him, but
to the committee that -had to . report the
bill. There was much1 opposition t the
liberal terms of the bill as originally drawn
and even the aeoretary of the Interior was
decidedly opposed to them, and the ccfidl
tlons complained of wr amendments, In
sisted on by th committee, ard he had
to get a favorable report in spite of th
Opposition and accp the amendmsnts ir
get no bill at all. He thought It better
to have th bill pass' as It is and seek
better terms In th future He expected,
If returned to congress, to have th bill
modified IA favor of th' homesteader be
fore the time for making flnnl preof ar
rived and had promises of help at that
time. ' ' . ' '
Mr. Klnkald then entered upon an expo
sition of the republican "policy of protection.
He proved that It was absolutely In favor
tf the Worker In every department of labor.
In regard to the charge that g-vds Were
manufactured and sold ' cheaper 1n foreln
markets than at horn e showed that th
tnatanoea In which thl was don were very
rar and that then It waa only the surplus
that wss thus sold bee suae th manufac
turers felt It would be better to sell at a
loss than to atop the production, bank th
fires, stop the wheels, lock th door of
th factories and lay off th Workmen,
leaving them and their families to do th
best they could.
Reviewing the result of republican poll,
clea, h rf!rmed that th unexampled
prosperity of th country began with th
MoKlhley. and Dlng!-jliWBlch protect
from the Importation 'of ju. products of
th cheap labor or foreign ,"cnn tries. H

waa growing by leap and hounds. Tha

republican revl.loix already nromlaxt
th next congreaa, would be in favor of th
American people oa th prtnclpl that "H

Th speech as a whole was a dUpasalon

jority of th popular vote."
Speaking of his delay In reaching Chicago
Saturday night Mr. Bryan said: "The trip
arranged for the day waa a long one with,
a large number of stops. The meetings were
unexpectedly large and In some place the
speaking stands were fixed some distance
from th' stations. We had to ride slowly
through the crowded streets to reaoh the
stands. Then there were three changes from
one road to another and finally our engine
broke down and th substitute engine hsd
to be turned around at th next station and
that caused a delay. .1 never before hsd
such a series of delay in th csmpalgn. I
am very much pleased with the reports
I have had from Illinois. I believe that th
republican of thl state have an unpleas
ant surprise coming when they read th
returns from the state on election day.' '

PRINCETON AND ARMY TIE
Cadet Prevent Scoring Only by Fine
WEST POINT. N. Y.. Nov. l.-Prlnceton
and the Army played a 0 to 0 tie foot ball
game yesterday afternoon. In the first half
honors were even, but In the seoond the
visitors had everything their own way, only
being prevented from scoring by phenom
enal defensive work on the part of the
cadets. Four times Princeton took th ball
to West Point's 5-yard line and four tlmea
West Point held for downs. Each time the
Army punted out of danger, though twice
the ball was caught within Its 30-yard line,
Greble was largely responsible for West
Point's fine defense, twice tackling Tlbbot
behind the line for a loss.
A strong wtnd favored the cadets In th
first half, but In th second this advantage
was transferred to tha victors, The breeae
and the coJd. made fumbling frequent.- 8ub
stitutlons were slso numerous.
At the last moment Coach Nally decided
to remove Moss from the Army lineup, be
cause of his bad knee. Nix was substituted
as right guard. The lineup of the twu

CHICAGO, Nov. 1. Minnesota'a dreaded
foo ball team proved helpless yesterday
In front of the lightning play of Staggs
athletes and Chicago piled up a score of
29 while Minnesota fought vainly to cross
th goal of their rivals.
The scorn of 29 to 0 Is Identical with
that of th first victory of Chicago against
Minnesota In 189S. It also Is the deciding
game of a tie between the teams as the
result of the games of lW-7. the rivals
having failed to clash ln the five yeara
preceding 1906. Yale veterans alao decided
a friendly rivalry when SJagg'a machine
bsat down and overrun the fortifications
prepared by Coach WilUains and his as
sistants. Bhevlin and HeffU-flnger, all one
time stars of the Yal gridiron.
Minnesota'a forward passes were Infre
quent and unusually unsuccessful. Th Chi
cago line withstood th most determined
charge of their opponent and. protected
by th best Interference Chicago haa shown
In any of Its games. Steffcn and Pag tor
