heat of the primary campaign, with the
question of legislative appropriations s a
center of attack. In the last primary cam
paign. Governor Vessey at no time wav
ered In his position that the appropriations
made two years aso were necessary for the
proper mulntenance of the state Institu
tions, and In his message to the twelfth
legislative assembly he takes no backward
step along that line, but asks that all the
staie Institutions be properly cared for
with growing needs to be considered along
wtih thoe of the present. At the same
time he aks that the members give careful
attention to the appropriations and guard
against their passing the Income of the
state, but thst the Institutions should not
be crippled by parsimony.
lie asks for consideration of some plan
by which the convicts In the penitentiary
be given an opportunity to secure in In
come and that at least a portion of such
earnings be paid to the families of such
convicts In their strungle under such a
handicap as they must meet.
He earnestly pleads for better provisions
for the State Hoard of Health In Its work,
which, while more Important than that of
animal Industry of the state. Is given a
mere pittance as compared with the ap
propriations for th welfare of live stock.
He calls attention to th many om
plalnts which come to him of failure on
the part of state's attorneys, especially In
the newer counties of the state, of failure
in law enforcement, and regardless of the
vote st the last election on th eo-clled
"crssr law," he expresses his opinion that
th executive should be given st least i
limited power of removal In - rases o
flagrant disregard of official duties on th
part of such county official.

South Dakota to "get 1nt line" wtn Oth

Holt y and som move be made toward at

cure population and Industries for the state
He believes thai tbe present sesslot
should take at least some preliminary stern
toward calling a constitutional convention
to provide tha changes which a growth o

and to broaden the constitutions! power?
given to th people.
