H. Mamas ter then governor. Praises Gunderson a i want to say to you in opening this discussion that i am not Here to impugn the motives or to question the honesty of any of the state officers of South Dakota and particularly Carl Gunderson governor of this state said the speaker in opening his address before the employees.

In my belief land i say it in All sincerity Carl Gunderson. Governor of this state is an estimable Man an honorable Man and a Public servant who endeavours to carry out the wishes of the people. But while i am not Here to assail hi9 motives or question his honesty i feel that it is our privilege and our right to question the Wisdom of the policy which has brought about Tho conflict Between the Oil Industry and the governor in this a in my opinion governor Gunderson in his harassment of the Oil Industry is making a mistake and that he is attempting to carry out a policy that has already checked Progress in this state and threatens ultimately if pursued to its logical conclusion to result in absolute financial stagnation in this state. For if it be a Good thing and a proper thing to thu harass and annoy the Oil Industry in this state it must of necessity by equally Good and equally proper Tai harass and annoy every other line of mercantile activity.
