Several piling vielded to the continuous and teriffic onslaught of the float- ing ice, thus 'making passage for trains impossible. However the Milwaukee managed to get mail across by-means of slow transpor- tation a little at a time. Sunday afternoon a double header was sent out this way reaching here 1 about 4:30. The train split hen and a section of it returned to the east while the remainder continued on to Rapid City. Postmaster O. C. Sharon earned the thanks of his many patrons, by seeing that the so much desired mail was properly distributed and j within the hour man* of the loca'- j pit runs enjoyed their papers a-! w 11 as letters. i Monday the break in the bridge i was remired. However it still is j not verv safe and consequent b all trains are held until daylight to cross which makes our mail two hours late. ONLY IjOCAL flfctioy fop WASHABAUGH COUNTY The following article sent as a copy of an opinion to states attorn- ey A. G. Granger* .means that un- j organized counties can only have j local election for the highway j board and for the school board. Mr. J. W. Jackson, March 11, 1924. State’s Attorney, Oacoma, S. I). Under date of October 3rd 1923, in an opinion addressed to Sewell B. Weston, I held “that there no authority for the holding of any , precinct initiatory elections within , unorjranizod counties, • \ that the laws relating to the conducting ol such elections are m applicable; to such counties." This boMjng! was based upon the premise that the law furnishes no method machinery for the suca precinct initiatory elections in unorganized counties. _ Alter the writing of the foregoing opinion, a copy of which is enclosed here- with, oral advice was given in my office to several parties making inquiry, to the effect that the party primary election, laws have no ap-; plication to unorganized counties; and that the primary election to he held on the fourth Tuesday in March should not be held in un- organized counties. It was rep esented by one or mo-e of the parties making inquiry that most of the tax payers of Todd County wished to avoid the expense of a primary election. My attent- ion has uist been called to the published notice of primary elect- ion to he held in Todd Countv on ! March 25th. "for the purposy' of' allowing the members of each | political partv in the state, bv di-1 rect vote, to choose the paramount issue for party platform and pro-j pose their several candidates for. all presidential, state, congression-j al. legislative, county and district i offices which are to be filled bv, election at the next general elect- ion”, etc., and I have been asked to give you my views relative to the propriety of holding such a primary so that you may, to that extent, lie forearmed in the contro- versy which is apparently impend-jng. While Section 7134, Revised Code, provides that the primary election shall be held at the regular polling place in each precinct throughout the state, unorganized counties are not referred to any place in the pgrty primary .election law, and consequently there is the same absence of machinery or prescribed method for the holding of the pri- mary itself as there is for the holding of the precinct initiatory election. The provision for notice of election and all the rules pre- scribed for the holding of the pri- mary contemplate the holding, of WANBLEE NEWS \ Mr. and Mrs. F. D.

S. South Dakota senator, came to hear him in large numbers last Friday night. A. G. Granger briefly and aptly introduced him as “the best govern- or .South Dakota ever has had" to which the audience heartily ap- proved. Lacking all the essentials of oratory, as well as all the trap- pings of the professional political stumper, the senator, in his pleas- ing conversational talk quickly' won his house with the ways and means of delivering his message. He told first hand experiences at Washington, of conditions there, of his connection with and the fights for the legislation he had Helped into existence. He painted tho corrupt state of affairs and plead- ed for a purification of the Repub- lican party. He showed the con- ditions in which Coolidge had worked and wds working and in- ferred that a man of the Johnson type would do different. A brief recital of Johnsons enroer then followed to leave the inferred sug- gestion in the mind of his listeners that Johnson was "the man." It was one of the cleanest and lx»st drawing political talks we have ever heard and delivered*in the Norboek pleasing way is in a class bv itself. The senator made a mighty fine impression and strengthened old friendships held here for him as* well as making now personal friends. joyably spoilt in touch with Texas, California Minnesota, Chicago* Cin- cinati and Buffalo, N.

The hostess then served a delicious lunch of sherbet, two kinds of angel food cake and coffee. A Mrs. Whetmore, one of the state organizers and political speak ers of the South Dakota Womans Coolidge Club arrived Tuesday morning from Philip preparatory to holding a political meeting here in the afternoon. She found upon coming here, that no arrangements h‘id been made for her and appar- ently the hoadouarters of the Indv workers had missed a cog in their machinery for Mrs. Fryhorger, the ’oeal chairman was not informed of her coming. She therefore took the next tram for Mtirdn without holHinc a meeting here at all and after all it was well for Coo idge ndoes not < -t»nd in much danger here. uch primary only within and for organized counties. Sections 7365, 7366 and 7367 of the Revised Code of 1919 are as follows: “Sec. 7305. Persons Entitled toVote. All persons residing in any of the unorganized counties of this 1 state, having the qualifications of ! electors of this state, shall have f the right to vote :it all elections ! held in this state for al! st.-ite and(national officers and upon all ! uiestions submitted to a vote of he people, in the same manner' md to the same effect as if such j xersons were residents of organ-. ¦zed counties. "Sec. 7366. Precincts. At each iml every state or national election held in this state, the board of county commissioners of the coun- ‘y to which any unorganized coun- ty is attached* shall at the time : and in the manner provided by law I for the establishing of voting pre-j cinets and apnointing judges of jj deotions in organized counties.! I ‘stahlish in such unorganized! county or counties voting precincts) and aopoint judges of elections who shall be residents of the pre-) eincts in which they are appointed! to act. and shall provide booths.; ballot boxes and other supplies for such precincts and perform such other acts as are necessarv for the "avrying out of the provisions of this article. "Sec. 7367. Ballots Provided. The county auditor of the county ' to which any unorganized county j is attached shall at every state! and national election held within this state provide printed ballots for each voting precinct in such unorganized county, in the same manner as for the voting precincts in the organized county; .except that such ballots shall contain the! names of candidates for state and i national offices only and only such questions as are submitted the | electors of the whole state." I do not believe that the fore- j' going sections authorize the hold-j' ing of the party primary in un-! 1 organized counties, or provide any machinery for such. The weight 1 of authority is to the effect that ~ fhe word “election” as used in'! general constitutional anti statu-' tory provisions does not include a primary election. 20 C. J. 114. Our) 1 own Supreme Court has said: "It is for the party to nominate; for the people to elect". The sections '¦ referred to became the law of this ' state before we had a party pri- 1 inary election law, and the elect- 1 ions referred to in said sections arc 1 clearly general elections, at which ' all state and national officers are ! elected and all questions submitted to a vote of the people are deter- mined. The time for the action of • the county commissioners referred ¦ to in 7366 is in September, and it is j made clear that the ballots refer-) 1 red to in Section 7367 "shall con- > 1 tain the names of candidates for) state .and national offices only, and ;' only such questions as are submit-! 1 ted to the electors of the whole 1 1 state.” No reference is made to a ballot to contain the names of l candidates for nomination. No provision has been made by law for the payment of the ex-j ponses of holding a party primary in an unorganized county. Sect- in,i 6750, Revised Code, as amended by Chapter 305, Laws of 1923, authorizes the county commission- ers of each organized county to which any unorganized county is l attached to levy taxes. "3. For all costs of general elect-i ions and assessment, extension and collection of taxes in such un- organized county.” Section 7211, Revised Code, pro-; vides in part that "On the firstTuesdav after the first Monday in ( November of each even numbered year, an election shall be held at the several election precincts-in the state, which shall be known as the) general election.” Thus by special statutory provis- ion, the term "general election" refers to those elections held in November of each even numbered year, at which elections candidates for flection are elected, as dis- tinguished from the party primary election at which candidates foi nomination are nominated. Chapter 183, Laws of 1923, pro- vides that "No elector in the State of South Dakota shall be permit-; ted to vote at any party primary election unless he is duly register- j ed as hereinafter provided, or un- 1 less he shows by substantial affi- davit that he is entitled to vote in such primary.” Under this law, the auditor mails registration cards only to electors; of his county, and he prepares the { party registration book only • for j each precinct of his county, and | no provision is made for the party! registration of residents of un-l organized counties. The questiqn is a difficult one. upon which the court decisions shed little light, and my conclus- ion that there is no provision or machinery for tRe holding of a party primary election in unorgan- 1 ized counties may not be free from doubt. However, the foregoing is submitted for your assistance and consideration ip connection with the situation presented Jby the pro- posed holding of g primary •IfOt- iou in Todd County.
