Fm» « in iraiiTiii Tiwi'"i| [..••••••••—•••—^•gggg FOLK'S SPEECH (Continued from first page.) ereivthat it is not wise to elect those whose duty it is to regulate the rates of corporations, for too often they elect the regulators. The appointive system has been found to be much ^better. •I ELECTION LAWS. enforced and that when a county ^ believe that our election lawg votes local option the will of the could be improved up.n. There should people be obeyed, I shall ask the be a general primary law. whereby next General Assembly to give the primary elections of all parties may people power to recall a derelict official either directly or by complaint to the executive. This ie the law now in a number of the States, so it is not an untried experiment. Corrupt men support a man for office expecting in return the privilege of lawlessness. The suggestion, of course, will not meet their approval. It may be objected alsojby some who think it may interfere with local self- government. The object of having State government at all is to make and enforce laws. It no more violates the ripht of local self-government to give the executive of the State power to suspend a corrupt prosecuting attorney, for instance, upon the complaint of the people of a county, than the law allowing the litigants of a county to appeal from the local court, to the Supreme court. The authority of the State must be vested some whore. "If each county of the state would have the right to enforce or nullify state laws, then the doctrine 'of local self-government ought to be carried further and each township in the county should have the same right of self-government; then each district in the township is entitled to the same privilege; then each man in the district should judge for himself what laws he should or should not obey and the result would be no government at all. Carried to that extreme each man would have equal right to obey the laws he likes, and to disobey those ob- nexious to him, and every other man would have the same right. The result would be constant ; warfare. as the wants and desires of men came in conflict. Either the counties should have the power to make their own laws independent of the state, which is a proposition one would,, hardly advance, or if the state is to continue making laws for all the counties the state should have the power to enforce these laws if local officials neglect or refuse to do It no more violates local self-government of the counties for the state to have power to enforce state laws in all of the counties than the power of the state to make laws for all the counties violates that right. "Law-breakers see no loss of self- governme'nt in having the state make the laws, but they "view with alarm" any effort to give the state power to enforce those laws. They do not care who makes the laws so long as they can control the men whose duty it is to enforce them. What is the use of lavfs if they are not enforced? The only way the people of the state can rule is by the laws a majority of "the people make through their representatives. If these laws are nullified by corruption or otherwise, then the „ will of the people is thwarted, and there is to that extent not a government of. and for and by the people, but a government of and by those of wealth enough or political influence enough, to buy official indulgence. There can certainly be no objection on the ground of the lack of local self-government in giving the people of the counties the right to recall. I am not wedded to any particular plan, but there should be some measure, either recall or suspension by the executive, so the people may rule in fact as well as in name. .REGULATION OP UQUOR TRAFFIC. "As a further regulation of the liquor traffic the State laws should prohibit brewers and distillers having any interest in saloons. It is a mat ter of common knowledge amongst those who have studied ; the subject that much of the vice arising from the business comes from this practice. Kansas City recently passed an ordinance to this effect, and its results have been most beneficial. It should be mads a felony to,sell liquor 1 without YOURS FOR BIZ ED F. AT N. Y.

No license, of course, should be allowed in any county that has voted local option. *he lice ises in ether counties should be issue 1, as heretofore, by the county courts, but in addition to the ci.ty or county license a state license should be required, in order that the traffic be rigidly controlled, and suppressed when the people have voted to suppress it. The law enforcement arm of the state government needs strengthening, and I regard this measure as of much importance in that direction. It is easy enough to pass good laws, but it is quite a different matter to enforce <rood^ws. The machinery for enacting laws at present is perfect, but the machinery for enforcing those laws isv very, imperfect. , CORPORATION REGULATION. ;''The State shoflld control the rates charged-the public, not only by railroads, but by all public service corporations, including steam .and street railways.,electric, gas, telephone, telegraph companies,'and kindred corporations controlling- public utilities. I would suggest thatf a commission be provided "for to fix the rates according to the actual amount invested, allowing reasonable return for labor, skill and. genius. This would exclude all water from the stock of these corporations on which the public is now compelled unjustly to pay dividends. The State that charters these coporations has the right to control these rates, and the ^necessity of exercising the right is manifest. While the charges on railroads are regulated to some extent now. when it comes to street railroads, electric, gas, telephone and telepraph companies, there is no provision to adequately protectthepeople against extortion. Tiie^, commission could be either elected or appointed. Experience has demonstrated, how- beheld all over the State on the same day. with the same'number of polling places and the expenses paid in the same manner as in a general election. This could eliminate the political boss and professional politician, who delight in a multiplicity of primaries and conventions, for the ordinary citizen, after attending one or two, will grow weary and turn his attention to something else, leaving these who are in politics for revenue only in control. POLICE. ."I expect to recommend that the large cities be given the right to elect their police commissioners by the people, the commissioners to be paid a salary that will enable them to give their time to the duties of their position. In order to prevent criminal interests electing or controlling improper men the commissioners should be subject to suspension or removal by the Governor, for neglect of duty. I promised to take the police of the large cities out of politics, and to keep them out so that every man, whether democrat, republican or populist, would have the right to go to the polling place, cast one ballot and have it counted.- The police are out of politics, and the elections are absolutely fair. At no election held in St. Louis, Kansas City or St. Joseph during my administration has there been the sftghtest interference, nor can anyone be found who would make a complaint in that respect. GOOD ROADS. "The subject of good roads is oneof vast importance to the people of the state. Many laws have been enacted, and none is satisfactory. The trouble is the people do not know how to .build roads. It takes as much skill to buil'l a good highway as it does to construct a railroad. The lirst step in securing good road* is to have the General Assembly provide for a state engineer, skilled in the art of road- building. I expect to recommend that the road department of the state government be organized on the same plan as the public school systsm. and maintained by special taxes in the same manner. In this manne:- we will eventually have splendid highways from one end of the state to the other. EIGHT HOUR LAW AXD CHJLD LABOR. ''The eight-hour law is being enforced, but there is need here also for more facilities for executing the law. The samo is true in reference to the law as to child labor. In the large cities where the factory inspectors have jurisdiction they see that this law is enforced, but this jurisdiction of the factory inspector is limited to the largo cities, so that thyre is no ade- quute provision in the other towns of the State to secure the enforcement of this law. Child labor is an enemy of education and civilixation. It goes hand-in-hand with ignorance. Sometimes it is claimed that it is necessary for a child to work in order to support an indigent parent. Experience has demonstrated that in a majority of of cases these claims are not bnna fide. However that may be. if parent is so poor that lie must re, upon the support of an infant child 1 is poor enough for the State to su port him as a pauper. He should n be allowed to ruin the child physical), morally a-nd mentally, as is the ca= where children of tender years are a lowed to labor. The jurisdiction < the factory inspector should be e: tended to cover other towns of tl .State, where factories are operatet so that this law can be effectively cai ried out. OUTLOOK IN MISSOURI HOPEFUL FOR DEMOCRATS Only Danger is in Feeling of Secur- " ity of Democrats in Th-? Counties Wh^re Majority is Large. Howard Allen Gass of Jefferson City, Democratic nominee for state superintendent of public instruction, was among the visitors who came to Chillicothe Saturday to hear Governor Folk speak. Mr. Giss was the choice of Livingston county Democrats for the nomination which he received at Jefferson City aid is a favorite here. He has beenmaking a quiet canvass of the state and is well pleased with the outlook for the Democratic ticket. "The only trouble will be," he 3aid, "in getting out a full vote in the big Democratic counties. lu these counties Democrats often take on'y a local view of the matter, thinking that their votes are aoh elect the county ticke% and do not go to the polls t cud, however, that there is good feeling generally among the Democrats of the state, and I hava received much encouragement throughout the state " Mr. Gass is one, of the best known school men in the state. He has been editor of the Missouri School Journal for a numbjr of years, and is known among school' teachers, for his progressive attitude toward educational matters. Indications are that, on account of the high esteem in which he it held by the teachers of the state, ho will poll more th-xn the regular party vote.
