THE KANSAS CITY JOUftNrAI WEDNESDAY. ArRTL 21, 1803
THE GAVEL FALLS.
Continued front IMirf t
eperntlon for mutual gain, are thn worst
rnemios ot fair flection. So fnr n. they
ran they v III put obstacles In tlte wny ot
legislation nnd of successful ndmliilstrn
tlmi, nnd this often with much ndrnltnr.,
nml with much protesting mid plausible;
prelctisoot fnlr piny. No innn who really
merits tho title of "boss" ilesdres n fair
election, for n fnlr clertlon diminishes his
rower nml Interferes with his occupation.
Party advantage should not ho sought In
the enactment or administration of eleetlon
laws. Thcro can he ho party ndvnnlnge
In tlin Plllclent nml lionet ndmlnltrntlnn
ot xvholcsotrio Inws. Any law which, hy
lis terms, arfonls ono Individual or parly
nn ndvatttngo over ntiother, Is a bnd law.
A perfect law, which will entirely prevent
fraud. Is. perhaps, Impossible, hut a law
ran lie enacted which will mako fintidulent
practice exceedingly dlllleult and linxnnl
mis, ntid thus minimize tho evil, if tlm
gentlemen of the two houses will come to
tho consideration of this subject, not In n
spirit of narrow partisanship, hut with
tho sob! desire of advancing the ptiblta
weal, remembering that whatever their pot.
Itlcs they nre nil Missourhins, nnd should
bo Interested In tho honor of tho state,
thero will be no serious dllllcnlty In reach
ing n satisfactory result. 1 express the
hope that wlso rounscl will provnll, nnd
that n law designed wholly to promote tho
public good may be speedily agreed to.
A Fellow Servant Low,
t nsk the general assembly to enact a law
defining tho relations between railroad cor
porations nnd their employes, nnd nlso to
dep.no nnd fix tho Icunl liability between
such corporations nnd their employes for
Injuries surrered by one employe, as tho re.
suit of tho culpable negligence ot ntiother
employe, while engaged In llio service of
tho same corporation.
Lt mo suppose it rase: A passenger
train starts out of St. t.oills nt nlRht, en
countering n. storm so black that the lire
eye of tho locomotive seems only to make
the darkness lslblc, and dashes niviiy over
hills, along winding valleys, arounil ob
scuro curves, nt n speed of forty miles an
hour, with the enclneer at his post, hi
hand upon the throttle and his eyes watch.
Ing for any signal of dnnger, when sudden
ly there Is n Jar, a lurch, a crash, and tho
engineer Is burled In the ruin. An Incom
petent, negligent or vicious switchman bus
failed to do his duty. JJy renou of the
carelessness, negligence or Imlirfcrenco of
this switchman, employed to perforin cer
taln duties, the engineer I crushed or
burned to death, or terribly mutilated.
With 'the employment of the switchman
the ciiRlneer had nothing to do; he had no
connection wim nun no urn not oven Know
him. Tho engineer was In no sense to
blame! hn had simply discharged hi duty
10 me iiincsi limit, unticr inc law or .mis.
sourl tho engineer would have no legal
claim for damages n gainst his employer.
Is that right? Lot mo suppose the
case ot a train that should have
been sidetracked, but, on the contrary, was
ordered to proceed, and In consequence of
which a collision occurred with tertlble ef
fect on trainmen iind passongcts. The dis
aster was duo to a dispatcher who misun
derstood or who was Incapable of under
standing his orders, or was Riillty ot some
gross negligence. The trainmen wero not
to blame; they simply obeyed orders nnd
discharged their duty. Should they bo de
nied all right of redress against nn em
ployer who tnkes a man Into his service, so
Incompetent or negligent as to precipitate
such disasters? It will not do to say that
tho employer was unaware ot tho habits
or Inefllclency of the switchman or dis
patcher. It should be Ids duty to keep him
self Informed. 1'assengers Injured In such
wrecks would have a cause of action. Why
should It not bo equally the duty ot the
master to protect Its employes In such
cncs as I have stated?
Disasters of tho kind described have oc
curred. It would not bo dlllleult to multi
ply Instances similar In nature. If not In
detail. Such cnes Illustrate tho unreason
able Injustice of the harsh rule of the com
mon law, and demonstrate tho necessity of
some material modlllcatlon of It. Tho force
of this necessity has been recognized both
In England and America.
A number of the American states have
entirely chnnged the rulu of the common
law, Insofar as It applies to tho employes
ot railroad corporations. The Iowa, codo
"Kvery corporation operating a railway
shall bo liable for all damages sustained by
any pcison, Including employes of such cor
poration. In consequence ot the neglect of
agents, or by any liilsmnnngement ot the
engineers or other employes of tho cor
poration." Laws of similar Import, and more or less
comprehensive In tho dllterent states, havo
been enacted In Georgia, Wisconsin, Kan
sas, Florida, Massachusetts, -Minnesota,
Montana, Wyoming and others.
When the necessity of a more humane
anu cnugirrcrrcii rule one more m Harmony
with the altered conditions ot our later
civilization Is being so generally recog
nized, both In our own country and abroad,
Why should Missouri stand obstinate In the
path of progress and cling stubbornly to
mi ancient precedent which Is fast coming
under tho ban of universal disapproval?
Why should not Missouri enact u law for
the proper protection of tho 15,000 nun cm
ployed in operating the lallroada of this
JlllliK'nrn of tlm Lobby.
I will not say, tor I do not so believe,
that there I no man honestly and conscl.
enilously opposed on principle to a meas
ure of tho kind In question. It would bo
dlllleult to propose any Important measure
of legislation or public policy which would
be tree from criticism or opposition from
all quarters; and there are some men
often some very good men so constituted
that their natural sphere Is one of oppo
sition. Hut this 1 sny, without fear of se
rious contradiction, that a btntrrto of tho
character proposed could he easily enact
ed, If the tremendous liillueuces of the rail
road corporations were not concentrated In
constant and active opposition.
Is there ono to doubt that such a law
would llnd a place on the statute books If
that opposition did not exist? And why do
til!! COrnoratiOlh Onnil.4e it? OllK- liecniwe
It would result In Increasing to somii ex
tent their own pecuniary liabilities. 1 know
of no other reason for their opposition. Itat
exemptions Horn pecuniary liability In this
behalf Is In Itself the denial of a right to
others which should not bo denied. Con
siderations of that character cannot Justify
tho maintenance of a rule of law, which,
If not wrong in its Inception, has been
so widened In the scope of Its application
that manifest Injustice Is now frequently
done under its operation, 1 would not do
the least Injustice to railroad corporations.
Hut they should do Justice themselves;
they should not seek an advantage, nor
strive to avoid Just responsibilities, espe
cially should they not icsOrt to vicious or
Improper moans to perpetuato nn advantage
that uught not to exist at all. In view of
the premises. I confidently nppeal to tho
general assembly to ennct a Just and lib
eral measure of legislation on this subject,
whllo lit tho sair.o time I urge tho necess
ity ot exercising every possible earn In Its
preparation, so as to prevent any abuso of

cannot bo misunderstood, uud that any ef
fort to construe It can only result In con

opening tho door to all employments? So
far as I have observed, this contention has
proceeded, from railroad circles. At nil
events, whoever elso may Inclluu to favor
it "general law," the agents and lawyers
of Hie railroads nro the special advocates
of that policy. Hut how does tho Inclusion
of other servants and masters in a bill or
law benefit tho railroad corporations?
What practical difference does It make to
them? Do railroad attorneys make this
contention as phllantluoplats In tho Inter
est of humanity, or in the hope that by
enlisting 11 multitude of opposing1 Interests

an exploit for recruits? Hut snm iinv

I nsk the general Assembly to enact a law
Jo suppress tho practice of iobbjlng, which
hn Brown Into an rtlnrmlng evil nt trie rnu
itnl. It has come to pass that. certain rail
roads maintain nn organlwrt lobby nt the
state capital during tho sessions of Iho
gPheMI assembly. This practice has pre
vailed ror n number of j-enis. It I main
tnlned ostensibly for the purpose of "pro
tPi'tltig" the Interests or railroads against
tho assaults of the people's representatives.
11 tho prosecution of thl service the
lobby agents of these corporation have
assumed that every measure: which looks
to the regulation or control ot railroad, or
by which they nt1 affected, is an "attack"
upon them. Thl Is nn Insult to Iho peopl
of thp stnte, for It assumes that they nre
viciously disposed, nnd that they an Inc.i
liable nf administering, or linwillltip lo
administer, public affairs In the spirit of
right, honor and Justice, nnd th.it it Is lire
esary for tho railroad. 10 resort ti ex

atlon which refers exclusively to rallrotls
but they do' not hesitate' Wi thrust Ui'm
selves oinelously Into Important measures
which relate wholly to other subjects. Tho
bad and long continued example of the
railroad lobby ha become Infectious. Oth

ence, until now the ngents ot more than
one special Interest nro kept at the cap

This practice Is demoralizing In the ex
treme. If nothing more, and every consid
eration ot honor, decency and good gov-erum-Mit
requires that it should be stopped.

Whatever prejudice may exist is chlclly the
result ot Injudicious policies adopted and

roads uro necessary to the well being of
tho state. They are great enterprises, re
quiring large Investments of capital, and
In the successful operation of which the
highest Intelllgncnco and tho most exact
ing attention are demanded. Any cause
less prejudice against them Is stupid and
contemptible; nny unreasonable hostility
toward them would bo the height of folly.
Tho right of nny citizen to be heard In a
proper way before a. commltteo ot the leg
islature, or before any executive oillecr or
body, is one that ennnot and ought not to
be denied. A fair and Intelligent presenta
tion of the views of those having Interest
nt stake, so fnr from being forbidden,
should be Invited. Hut a band of lobbyists
organized and maintained as a permanent
institution, to hnng about public oillees and
the hnlls of legislation, with the solo ob
ject of Interfering with publlo nffnlrs, and
with authority to use uny means, however
questionable, to promote their ends, is al
together another thing. That kind of thing
is wrong, wnouy ami irretrievaniy wrong.
This evil of professional lobbying has in
vaded other states as well as Missouri, and
scandals ot the mon disgraceful character
havo frequently occurred.
The necessity of exercising public author
ity to lessen, nnd It possible, to suppress,
the evil, has been very generally recog
nized. Particularly have the old common
wealths of Massachusetts and Virginia
struck a blow at this vice which Missouri
would do well to Imitate. It I unnecessary
Hint I should sny more at this time. The
subject does not require further elabora
tion, for the evil to which I direct atten
tion is so patent, so glaring, so pronounced,
and has been so generally observed and
commented upon, that nothing I could say
could make plainer or more Imperative the
necessity of devising some adequate means
ot ridding tho state of Its debasing In
lluencc. To these several subjects I havo the
honor to Invite tho careful nnd considerate
attention of the general assembly, and
since two of them have been ulready con
sidered at great length and exhaustively
discussed, both In committee mid in the
house' and senate, 1 liiilulgo the hope ti'.at
you may be able to reach an agrcnient
without serious dlillcully or much delay.
WILLIAM J. STO.N'i:.
In tho senate tho Democratic majority
was In a wrangle almost from the opening.
O'Meara called the senate to order, s.ild
that he had been misrepresented, that he
was earnestly In favor of a purer elections
law and would lend his Influence- to secure
the fellow servants bill. While tho govern
or's message was being read, Secretary
WIndinan, of St. Louis county, objected
to the reading of that portion ot It which
referred to tho lobby, He said the gov
ernor was evidently trying to Insult the
senate, and he for one was willing to ac
cept the intent for the deed. Senator Dunn
Insisted that all of tho message must liu
rend, and the chnlr supported his conten
tion. The message, was read In full. There
upon Senator Hasltett moved to print -V'1"
coiles. Senator Lyman objected and said
that he was opposed to paying for tho
printing of an electioneering message. Sen
ator Yeater Jumped to his feet nnd nsked
"What do you mean by nil electioneering
message?" Hefore Lyman could reply,
Wiirdenian cross countered by saying:
"Don't vou know that It Is iui electioneer
ing message'.' That this session of tho
leglslatmo Is but tho beginning of the cam
paign to be fought for tho United Slates
seliutorshlp? That the whole session K lo

that the governor, deep down in his heart,

lively Interest In these thliiss ius ho now
professes, and If he really favored an hon

Oray, of Jasper county, came to Wnrde
mnn's support In a few brief, but pointed
remarks, which seemed to sling the Stono
crowd to tho quick. As a compromise, nt
last, V-) copies ot the messago were ordered
printed. Lyman declared that to print
even that number was a, waste of poor pi
per and good Ink.

TIIOSi: KANSAS CITY KKSOUITIONS.
Sceretnry .Morton CrllMscs Them anil Calls
in Question Their Statements.
Washington, April JB. (Speclal.1 Secre
tary Morton says of the Kansas City Live
Stock exchange resolutions as follows:
"They speak In this Kansas City resolution
about tho agitation over the Increasing
cost of live stock. This Is nonsense. There
has been no agitation that 1 know of over
tho increasing cost of live stock, but there
has been, .-mil there Is likely to be, a grow
ing agitation over tho Increase In cost of
beef at retail. That Is where the agitation
lodges. What wo aro after Is to discover
If we can whv live stock onlv troes in. 1
cunt per pound and diesbed beef goes up
5 and B centb per pound. If the Kansas
City or nny other live stock association
will elucidate that mystery in beef, that is
what we want.
"Why Is It," continued Secretary Morton,
"t would like to ask these Htock yards pio
ple, that while they say tho price of live
stock has recently gone off tumbled, the
in lee of beefs tenks at retail has not tum
bled too? They say dressed beef Is high,
because live cattlo nio high. Yet, when In
the next breath they mournfully speak of a
decline III cattle prices, and say It Is duo to
a. falling olf ot b"ef consumption, brought
about by the ngltatlon of tho question by
tho agricultural department, they cannot
point to a. corresponding falling off in the
retail price of beef.
"As a matter ot fact, tho department of
agriculture did not begin this ngltatlon.
Tho price- of retail beef went to tho point
of extortion In Now York nml other places,
while at olnts In Central Illinois nnd oth
