Shavv was yesterday inaugurated governor of Iowa in the presence of a vast assemblage which packed the capital to suffocation. Visitors were present from all parts of the state. The oath Of office was administered to Governor 8haw and Lieutenant Governor Milliman by Chief Justice Deemer, of the supreme court. Mr. Shaw then addressed the assemblage as follows: . .In assuming the duties of the of- j floe to which the suffrages of a i great commonwealth have called me, I atn not unmindful of ' the honor conferred, or the responsibility imposed. The people of Iowa have been kind without measure and it remains for me faithfully to observe the oath Just 'taken in your presence. As I approach the task, I can but ask your kind consideration and your prayers that He, on Whom I must rely, will vouchsafe both grace and wisdom to avoid the more serious mistakes and save the people from unhappy consequences of such errors as 1 may commit, It Is a matter worthy of nole that our Industrial and financial skies are brightening. After the experience of unrest, distrust doubt, fear, disaster and much of ruin through which we have pased thoughtful man questions the . It seems to be conced&d by business men and statesmen as well that our national currency heeds reformation. The various plans dev.sed and formulated, and recommended all tend In the same direction vHth greater or less abruptness, it is urged that the country THlt not consent to the retirement of the greenbacks and the issuance of any form of money in lieu thereof. This may be true, but If true dt proves the existence of an I1U advised prejudice. Concede the necessity of maintaining the parity of each form of currency with gold and the necessity of some modification of the present system is apparent That the gold standard should be made was the verdlrt nf 3896 by a million majority. The fact of notice that the case will hp retried In 1900 will hot Justify^a delay In placing the country on a safe financial basis. To do this demands the best and most stable torm of paper currency. No one presumes to recommend a contraction of the currency. No one would limit us to the use of gold as a medium of exchange. All that Is claimed, and all that Inheres In the verdict of 1896, Is that the value of each dollar of United States cur- wletner of coin or paper, ditions. no truth of the proposition that we are entering upon a period of improved conditions. The human family learns slowly. it required thousands of years to teach monotheism to one nation. The lids above the seething pots of earth had rattled for centuries beforo man even discovered steam power and for many years thereafter the world remained in comparative Ignorance of the power of steam. Both earth and sky have been charged with electricity from the dawn of creation. Men stood conscious of Its elxstence, In dread of •Jts manifestations, but In Ignorance of Its nature. With equally laggard steps the world has moved towards, but has hesitated to embrace, a single standard of value Nearly everything, cattle, tobacco, iron, leather, shells, copper, silver and gold, has been tried as standards, but not until recent years has the suijject been g-iven the scientific and careful investlgat on necessaiy to the establishment of *n a *?i+ °'l al anrl International unl- th» hi v, / tand£ J rdl so es sent!al to the highest and best financial con- Uradually. but Irretrace- , ..^3 civilisation advanced the time is not far distan/ when no one, In my Judgment, win so much as consider a double standard. The family was orlglnal"y •the unit of civilization. Each' man was more or less an Ishmaeme He mover whither he liked, lived as . he pleased, and defended Mmseir as far as he was able. He had 11; tie, if any, intercourse with thoso ,' about him and needed no standard of value. What little trafflclng he "IP have found convenient Was effected by the exchange of com modules. Subsequently several lamilles Joined together for mutual convenience and protection, fortified a castle, defended it, but re motlned isolated and Independent ( By degrees, through epochs more or less deHned, we have advanced ; Past the clan, the tribe, the feudal system, the state to the federation of states, and are possibly nearlng the time when the nations of earth shall be bound -together, not bv treaties terminating at fixed per! lods, but by perpetual union .Whatever may be our dream, our or hope, or our fear, we have ; reached the time when 'international commerce is of recosnizel importance. We have learned by experience the convenience and practical necessity of the same etandard of value in all countries , We have learned that the laws of trade and the laws of convenience are, in matters temporal, supreme, beldom has the law making power : assumed the initiative with favorable results, and every attempt to circumvent commercial necessity has precipitated disaster. The great body of English and Amerl- lean civil law is not the result of the Initiative genius of statesmen, but it stands a monument to the adaptive versatility of the Anglo ' Saxon busines mind. That which commerce and trade have found necessary, or most convenient, has been perpetuated by legislative enactment and judicial decision. It has been found necessary to guard against harmful tendencies, and to erect many safeguards againsit the . encroachments of business and financial enterprise, "lest one good custom should corrupt the world " but business necessity has become i the test of expediency. Any pro- I posed violation of principles and conditions which experience has ! proven needful, has ever wrought sad havoc along all Industrial : tones. Recent history furnishes the best proof of this statement. | It would seem from the sufferings through which we have so lately j passed, tha/t no one able to com- rntsserate the homeless, the helpless, the friendless, and the destitute will again attempt to revolutionize the single gold standard the beneflelent effects of which we lhave enjoyed slnca January, 1879 When the exchange value of all foreign coins in the currency of our country, and the exchange value of our money In all foreign ports can be ascertained by simple mathematical computation, based solidly upon 'the relative weight of each standard coin, the greatest possible inducement to both domestic and foreign commerce as secured. This is now an accom- 1 plished fact in all gold standard countries. The merchant from silver or bimetallic states must watch the market quotations of silver, as well as of the commodities In which, he proposes to operate, and the possible fluctuations of his own ijifthey. Is sufficient to exclude him from all competitive enterprises. Not only the people of Jpwft, hut the entire North Is to be PQneratuJated that it ha,s at last learned the necessity of a single standard, and the supreme convenience, at least, of making that standard gold. U has ajso learned the necessity of maintaining the parity with all of each and every Wind of money now, circulating, or may be created for |n. finance ae wen as in, mathematics things to the same thing are equal $»" £»eh Other. Wh,eu each, form of pur jRpjiey & directly or indi.reetly ov rea,4Uy In some way our curency must be made elastic. Recent experience ° u &ht to evidence the necessity of authority somewhere for an emergency issue. It has been dem- onstraited In the last five years that a very little scare engenders a disposition on the part of the people to hoard. This proved to be as contagious as the disease germs ot Asia, and as ruinous to trade and commerce. The only way that tlie government under existing jaws, can now increase Its circulation is by borrowing upon in creased Issue of bonds, which results in anything but the removal of the conditions rendering the expedient necessary. The government assumes to do a banking uuslnes supon credit rather than assets, and her board of directors are subject to sudden and caprl- c.ous change, and are elected, not always because of peculiar illness for this particular branch of busing 8 ' bU Jn W t, ih varlous tendencies and predilections and pledped to represent the sentiments of widely diversified constituents, wise or otherwise. When such a board conlronts a condition of imminent peril, they may well be expected to debate each proposed measure of , e ief until the country goss to itiin, or Is saved by the patriotism and self sacrifice of those whose interests are more vitally at stake. Somewhere, wJth some power, there must be lodged au- thor.ty to relieve against a sudden , ?J a , or h °ardlng. An authority or this kind in recent years mlffht have averted the disaster. It may not be so important where this authority is lodged as that It be lodged where -It can be quietly exercised, as occasion demands, without extra session of congress or special legislative enactment The mere publication of its exercises would, In many -Instances, prove sufficient to Increase the apprehension which rendered the expedient necessary. The most natural and reasonable repository would be those -institutions whose self-preservation would lead to the .safe, conservative and judicious exercise thereof. Should either one of the several plans for currency reform now proposed be adopted, tit would go far towards rendering a panic, such as we have recently seen, at least a remote possibility. The merest flurry, the gathering clouds, ever discernible, would be protected against, and the country might never know that a threatened danger had been warded off, for it shouM be borne in mind that the public has its attention drawn to these matters only when tlia storm breaks. It has been urged that to in- ereaso the powers of national banks would result in a contraction of the curency to the prejudice of the people. Those who fear this result lose sight of the law of supply and demand, and the equally potent influence of competition It is safe to suppose the banks' would increase their issue as long- as it proved profitable so to do and It would prove profitable as long as there was a demand for dt Capital would be attracted to banking channels so long as it could be made to yield a moderate dividend. The interest derived by the bank upon the deposit of bonds would assist and very soon result in a material reduction of rates of interest to those who might require accommodation; and trade, manufacture and every 'industry would be stimulated thereby. We can safely allow experience to be our teacher in this as well as other matters. Amid tlie currency famine of 1S93 the government was powerless to relieve, but the national banks purchased bonds at exorbitant premiums and increased the circulation $34,000000 Now that threatened repudiation 'is passed, and the people have returned their hoardings to channels of trade, the banks are literally gorged with money, notwithstanding an increase of business, as shown by clearing house reports of more than 60 per cent; and these same banks are now retiring their circulation at the rate of $3,000,000 per month, the government tax rendering It unprofitable to maintain their issue In Idleness These other facts, known to all, but overlooked by many, must be ever kept prominent if one would wisely solve the problem. Money is not consumed by Us use. There la a limit beyond which money cannot be absorbed and idle money profits no one. It is the running stream and not the stagnant pool that turns our wheels and floats our commerce. Let no one understand this to be an argument in favor of imme- d.ate retirement of the greenbacks It is intended only as an argument in favor of maintaining at all hazards, the single gold standard, with an abundant issue of both gold and silver coin, and an elastic paper currency, every dollar oi which shall be redeemable or convertible, either directly or indirectly, at par with gold. The dangers of our multiplied forms of paper money have necessarily been but sllg-htlv referred to. * •* Our public school system is Justly the subject of admiration. It has accomplished much and we do well to foster it. It Is not without weak- nes,ses, however. The city and town graced school may fulfill us mission with some measure of completeness, but the country district school, In my Judgment, fails somewhat to meet requirements. The common observation ot men in mldde life Justifies the statement that sblldren leave the district school at a much earlier ase than formerly. A generation, ago algebra and geometry master Is superseded by those once supposed to be children, and to render -their employment practicable the attendance of pupils who have reached an age when the value of an education is appreciated Is pro- niblted. Iowa wisely maintains a magnificent university, within the reach of the high school graduate, but she has made no provision for the country boy and girl to prepare to enter It. Its annual support costs the state, In round numbers, $100,000 outside of permanent improvements, and In It she Is able to assist far less than 1 per cent of the young people of the state, and none from the farm without preparatory assistance In some way unprovided by the state. Within a half c;ntury at least two years have been added to the average college curriculum, and fully as much dropped from the more Important branches as actually taught in the country schools, thus ever widening the gap between the district school and the college, and the pupil Is left to bridge it as best he may. At no time is a young man or woman so Illy prepared for self-support as while fitting for college. The state ought to provide liberal things for all her educational Institutions, but ought also to provide some means to assist the country pupil to take advantage thereof. The town and city graded school Is designed solely for those who «nter It In Infancy and remain continuously, it necessarily offers poor encouragement for the country pupil who may ba behind in some branches, though perhaps fully abreast in those which tend to make thinking men. It will take the greater part of a year to get graded, and ho might about as well mlsa a y^ar as to lose a term. It requires an unusual thirst for knowledge to keep a boy In school to a girl of his own age, or to consent to be graded In a town school with boys several years his Junior. There are great possibilities In the rural population of Iowa. No Inconsiderable number of the industrious thinkers of earth have come from the farm. The rising generation of Iowa ought, and surely will, . carry westward the laurels now held by the middle states. It has always been the first rural born generation of men that has given a state her reputation. Nowhare is there such Indomitable courage, such incessant Industry and such constant hope as among those who follow the pioneer, and transform the wilderness into a garden with villas, and the children of these men and women have always been heard from. With such a generation now of practical school ogre, shall Iowa neglect them? Motives of patriotism as well as of philanthropy ought to secure for them as good opportunities as are insured their town and city cousins. Iowa is an agricultural state and will remain one. Not exclusively agricultural, but predominatingly so. Of this fact we are assured, and with it we are content. Those who have read the current report of the dairy commissioner, must.have b»en impressed with the remarkable development and wonderful possibilities of the dairy interest in towa. It is difficult to conceive what might be accomplished by the people of our state, were this great Industry adequately developed. It should receive the fostering care of the I-gis- lature. There is but one material from which butter and cheese can ba made. The very terms themselves should be as sacred from Infringement as a copyright. Nothing but butter and cheese made from the product of the cow should be allowed in the markets In such garb as to permit of deception. Any wholesome product of lard tallow or oil should find an open market' but its color or absence of color,' should protect the purchaser from the possibility of mistaking- it for what it is not. This most wise provision of our own law should bo urged upon the attention of the people of every state and country iikelv to afford us a market. If the eradication of tuberculosis will be of assistance to the industry and helpful In finding a market for the product, then this disease should be exterminated. Let it be known everywhere that Iowa butter is made from pure cream, and is wholly free from disease germs and the prairies of our state present an El Dorado unsurpassed. An industry that is likely to occupy any appreciable per cent of our farming area, and afford employment to any considerable r umber of our people, is worthy of everv encouragement, inclu.lhig both the prohibition of fraudulent imitation at home and abroad, and a national protective tariff. One consideration quite generally lost sight of by our people is the fact that the dairyman's farm will be worth at the end of a decade $5 per acre more than that of his corn-farming neighbor Within the past few years a monument, a beautiful granite shaft has been erected by order of the general assembly, at considerable cost, to the memory of those who so nobly and at the peril of their lives took a conspicuous part in the tragedy of our civil war. It was constructed from patriotic motives and lor patriotic purposes and was expected, at the time of its erection to be dedicated at no distant date Ihts ceremony, through some oversight or otherwise, has been neglected. I venture to suggest that the question is worthy of public consideration. The monument has been constructed, It will stand forever No ,, one now, or at any future time! will dare to lay it low, and in the coming years it will be priceless. It is educational in its character and is calculated to impress itself and that for which it stands upon the hearts and lives of many million people. Shall it be dedicated to the principles of liberty and patriotic devotion, or stand a perpetual memorial to human misunderstandings? Iowa has a history. There is much associated with her territorial existence, as well as her subsequent statehood, of which our people may well be proud. There are two ways of perpetuating this record. One and the least interesting, is to have it printed, bound In volumes and placed on shelves. This is being done as a private tenterprise, and the state can well rely that the ambition of authors, and) the promised gain therefrom to publishers, will do all that Is needed in this direction. The second, the most interesting, and at the same time the most expensive ancl most permanent method, is the preservation of historical relics, state papers. Interstate and national correspondence geological, zoological, mineralogical! art and other collections. This work has already assumed no mean proportions. Jt was com- me i l ?. ed or'srtnaHy as a labor of love, and has been lately prosecuted with tne aid or a nominal appropriation t!T™i the ^ tat f' „ Very nv>ch of intrinsic, and of far greater historic value has been secured, and is now the property of the state. For the want of any suitable place it is now JiteraUy pecked away -in qvarters entirely .tpadequatj! in the basement are not wanting that .—• -- . , vate collections of great value, and of greater interest, can be t* i.ureii without expense, conditioned only that the state arrange for their pro tection, where the public cani b- benefited thereby. If it be true that we are proud of our state and of Us history; If the names of the pioneers who have bulldecl cities, defended the honor of the flag, or occupied conspicuous positions in the councils of the nation are dear to us, should not the preservation of that which pertains thereto be a matter of public solicitude? The last general assembly appropriated $25,000 with which tn purchase grounds and erect an historical and art museum. An adjoining state, with less population, ancl $400,000,000 less taxable property, and with a state debt five times ours, has appropriated S450.000 for a like purpose. To pay this a special levy of one-tenth of a mill for s.;ven years has been provided. There are many things which the state, in view of its existing debt and Insufficient revenues, cannot afford to do, and some others notwithstanding conditions which it cannot afford to omit. The son who has Inherited a fortune is inexcusable If he neglect to erect a monument to his parents, even though he transcend for the time his current Income. Will this generation be able to excuse itself to the next who shall ignore its opportunity and permit to be turned into other channels the historic papers and relics now In the possession of mtn whose years give notice that they are not to remain long with us. or In the hands of the immediate descendants of those who have recently departed. Iowa Is fortunate above any of her adjoining sisters, and above nearly every state In the union in her financial condition. Much alarm has been expressed because of a small state debt. This should by all means be discharged at the earliest possible moment. She has certainly seen more prosperity than most states, and she owes It to herself, under ordinary conditions, to keep out of debt. And when a debt has been contracted, as at present, because of extraordinary circumstances, It ought to be paid as soon as possible, even at the expense of a slightly increased levy. Our people, In common with those of every state and of every country and of every time, complain of high taxes, and its has become quite popular to attribute the excessive burden to mismanagement in state affairs. The aggregate taxes collected for all purposes within the state is, In round numbers, $19,000,000. Of this only about 8 per cent goes to the state. Ninety-two per cent is absorbed at homo. Assuming that all railroad taxes are paid by residents of the state, and it swells our aggregate taxation to between $8 and $9 per capita, of which about 69 cents reaches thi; state treasury. Should the state levy be Increased to 3 mills it would make a. per capita difference of 2Vj cents. To decrease the levy to 2V4 mills would save 36 cents to the man whose annual tax is $50 To increase it to 3 mills would add 29 cents to his annual tax. It has occurred to me that no one can very certainly tell to what extent our state taxes can i>e decreased. It will be a matter of f-lic- itation if it can be reduced to 2 1 /. mills, but I am not prepared, at this time, to promise more than a good faith attempt. Taxes are too 'Ugh only when an expenditure is made which is needless, or excessive They are never too high when the affairs of state are economically administered, when no more departm-nts are maintained than the demands of the state require, when no more improvements to state institutions are made than are necessary and when all revenues are honestly collected and faithfully applied to the purposes for which they were desle- nated. I shall, indeed, be glad to see my adopted state return durln- my administration to the "pay as you go" principle. There is little that we can bequeath to our children more depressing in effect than debt. It is doubtful, however if the state levy can be appreciably reduced; certainly not if the custom shall continue of annually lov/erimr the assessed valuation of the nron- e '; ty ,°J the state - That this expi- dient for reducing taxes has been resorted to in the past is most apparent. In 1871 the cattle of the nft?i T7° re 'rf I 1 avera s e assessment of 51J.3/. 1 his has been gradually decreased until in 1895 it reached $•1.96. Horses in 1874 were assessed at $42.67, and in 1897 at $11.81. The live stock in Iowa was assessed $19,000 000 less in 1897 than in mi A state levy of 2% mills even upon U 1 - SKnnamount would nave Yielded $4i,500 per annum. The assessed valuation of live stock has been reduced 27 per cent since 1893- other personal propertly 4% per cent, ancl railroad property a fraction over one per cent. Assessed valuations must be maintained or increased levies must follow. The expense of state administrations do not increase simply because property is undervalued by the assessors. On the contrary, the expense of the state has grown constantly, and in some items rapidly. The number of Inmates of all our state institutions nas^_very ^materially increased, and "" ' "" " doubled of integrity, industry, car e, f ore thought and economy that he has manifested in the humbler and more congenial walks of life.
