Ball already has expressed the opinion that the girl is insane. Defense attorney Walter Mcgovern a Aid last night that with the final submission of evidence by or. Ball the defense would be prepared to rest its Issue is a new one supreme Bench will hear arguments on Case on april 21 it announces supreme court holds Johnson still Regent governor decision says can to replace him by Parmley for two years according to assistant District attorney Harmon he will make a Short opening statement and then introduce the the Almony of policemen Tail officials gild others who have come into Contact with miss Ellingson.

I will take the stand whether my attorney oppose it or not the girl ii credited with saying a even if i have in stand up in the open court room and demand judge Loewe track let me he heard. Pierre s. D., apr. 6.�?cdp a John Johnson of Watertown was legally appointed to the state Board of regents of education in 1921 for a six year term and the governor is without Power to replace him on the Board the South Dakota supreme court ruled today issued a writ of mandamus to Johnson against state auditor e. A. Jones compelling the latter to continue payment of Johnson a salary As Regent and against j. W. Parmley named by go. Carl Gunderson to succeed Johnson As a member of the Board of regents. The supreme court refused to Rule on the question of whether Parmley is now a member of the Board of regents holding that not to be at Issue before it. It did declare Johnson entitled to his seat on the Board until the expiration in 1927 of the six year term for which his commission was issued. Parmley was named by Carl Gunderson in february to succeed Johnson the governor holding that Johnson was named to fill out Tho unexpired term of Thomas d. Potwin a a Quot resigned which expired in 1923. The suit was brought by Johnson to support his claim that gov. Gunderson had no right to name j a. Parmley of Ipswich As a member of the Board of regents succeeding him. The governor explained in defense of his action that Johnson a appointment should have been As a successor to Potwin thus making his term expire in 1923. Parmley w As therefore named for a six year term expiring in 1929. Under the ruling of the court that Johnson a appointment was legally made for a sly Sagear term Parmley a appointment is nullified despite its ratification by the Senate since the membership of the Board is limited to five. The court was careful however to make no decision which would prevent Parmley a appointment to the Board at a future Date. Under the decision Johnson a term is ended in 1927, when two other Regency appointments expire. The governor in 1927 thus will have three appointments to make on the Board of five. Democrats Are split on Han of new policy Shaver. Apparently has no idea of Foli own course favored by Roosevelt Washington d. C., apr. 6.�? a a the movement to revitalize the democratic party organization launched recently by Franklin d. Roosevelt of new York and senator Thomas j. Walsh of Montana has encountered serious obstacles. Most party leaders both in and out of Congress have frowned upon the plan outlined by Sioux Falls s. D., apr. 6. Aho in or. and endorsed by son-1 usual situation of a Law firm rotator Walsh for an Early pattering of it la a a both sides of a court action Pierre s. D., apr. 6.�?up a Julius ii. Johnson of Pierre employed several weeks ago As special counsel for the South Dakota Rural credits Board today filed in the supreme court a petition for a writ of mandamus against e. A. Jones state auditor to compel the latter to pay him $116.04 in salary for the month of March. Tho auditor has refused to Issue a warrant for Johnson s first salary upon advice of attorney general Buell f. Jones who contends that John songs retention As counsel by the Rural credits department despite its specific authorization in a Law of the last legislature is illegal because the attorney general a office is set up to care for All state litigation. Jones had previously taken Issue with the Rural credits Board Over Johnson a appointment because he had not been consulted about it and had not approved it. The supreme court made the application for a writ of mandamus returnable on tuesday april 21, at to a. Rn., when the attorney general will argue against its issuance and Johnson himself will support the action of the Board in employing him. Johnson a application for the writ recites that a the Rural credits Board has under its control in Trust real and personal property valued at Between $40,000,000 and $50,000,000, the management of which requires constant Legal upon the outcome of the suit depends the right of several departments to employ special counsel Independent of the attorney general a office to conduct litigation for them. The Issue state officials say never has Arisen before but the action of the last legislature in authorizing employ of special counsel in several branches of state government has made the present action a significant one. Johnson and the Rural credit Board hold that nowhere is the attorney Gen Raj vested with the duty of supervising All state litigation and that authorization of special counsel by the legis lature la not in conflict with any Section of the Law relating to the attorney general a duties. A to same Law is on both sides of drainage action the chieftains of democracy to set up a militant National organization to function in and out of season. While both or. Roosevelt and senator Walsh expressed the opinion in letters they interchanged on the subject that chairman Shaver of the democratic National committee would Call such a conference of leaders he has not done so yet and his friends say he has no intention of doing so. Is seen in a decision handed Down today by the Static supreme court at Pierre holding that Clear Lake township in Minnehaha county must pay share of the coat of constructing the drainage ditch near hero in 1919. When the suit was starts the township was represented by the firm of Morris and Fitzpatrick and the county by Jones and Matthews. Since then. J.
