Constitution Warn AH. ERATION OF THE VARIOUS STATES." This was written by Governor Had. j ley as his solemn message to the 'SPAPER dorsing it, but I feel certain that in view of the fact that the first governor who ever recommended sucr) legislation to a Missouri legislature being a republican, that the republican stata platform would have endorsed this legislation instead oi condemning it. I call attention again to the f-'ct that the Gardner Land Bank bill passed the House with 45 of the 65 republicans voting for it, 14 republicans voting against it and 6. republicans being absent. Does Judge Lamm condemn the action of the 45 republican representatives who voted in favor of the Gardner Land D a n k bill? Does he say that there were 45 folish republicans in the House? and only 14 wise ones This position o£ Judge Lamm's is as consistent i? probably any other position he ha? taken. NEWSPAPER!
