Jefferson City, Mo. Gov. Hadley's
message to the 47th General Assembly
was received at the opening session
Wednesday. The governor, In part,
I feel that I can with entire fairness
congratulate the people of Missouri
upon the condlton of their public ser
vice, and also upon the absence of any
substantial differences of opinion be
tween the various political partes
upon public questions which have
heretofore been the subject of active
political controversy and division.
The various state educational, elee
mosynary, penal and reformatory In
stitutions have been well conducted;
substantial additions and new build
ings have, in many cases, been con
structed; a marked Improvement In
the physical condition of all has been
effected;' modern and more scientific
methods of management have, in
many instances, been established; and
the money appropriated by the state
tor the maintenance of these institu
tions has been honestly and wisely
A matter of first concern in the con
duct of public affairs is the condition
of the state's finances. When 1 took
the oath of office as governor on the
11th of January, 1909, a serious, if not
an alarming, financial situation con
fronted the people of this state. Dur
ing the biennial period that closed on
the first, of January, 1909, the appro
priations amounted to $10,441,625.88,
while the revenues available for that
period amounted to only $8,191,254.07.
This left appropriations to the amount
of $2,230,371.81 that were outstanding
and unpaid. After a careful investiga
tion of all of these excesses of appro
priation the forty-fifth general assem
bly found It necessary to reapproprl
ate approximately $1,000,000 of the ap
propriations made and unpaid during
the preceding biennial period, making
the appropriations (or the biennial
period ending January 1, 1911, $10,
231,930.15. As it was estimated that the reve
nues available for the payment of
these appropriations would not amount
to exceed $8,700,000, It became neces
sary for additional funds to be pro
vided, or else the state would be con
fronted with a condition of insolvency.
I urged upon the forty-fifth general
assembly the enactment of a number
of revenue measures, only one of
which received Its approval, namely,
a bill changing the system of Inspec
tion! of petroleum by abolishing the
various coal oil inspectors throughout
the state, creating the office of state
coal oil inspector and Increasing the
fees for the Inspection of the refined
products of petroleum. This resulted
in the addition of approximately $200,
000 each biennial period of tire state's
In addition to these new sources of
of revenue, the condition of the state
treasury was relieved by a number
of unexpected reincorporation fees of
large corporate Interests and by the
$150,000 fine Imposed In the Standard
Oil litigation. With this addition of
approximately $1,000,000 of revenue
each biennial period and the annual
increase in the assessed value of the
real and personal property subject to
the general property tax, together
with the practice of economy in all
the departments of state and the state
institutions, all appropriations made
during the last four years that were
necessary for the conduct of public
affairs have been met, and a surplus
of $500,000 is now to be found in the
Much can be done towards bring-

the condition of society as a
whole. Scientific investigations, as
well as humanitarian impulses, de
mand that the state's power should
be exercised to the fullest extent to
prevent child labor and labor of wom
en under such conditions as will 1st
pair health and individual efficiency
and result in weakened bodies and
mind. . .
Another law tending to the estab
lishment of a larger measure of so
cial and Industrial justice, concerning
which all political partieB are now
happily agreed, is a workmen's com
We now Impose a tax upon collat
eral inheritances, which goes not to
the general revenue fund, but the
state university. In my opinion, the
proceeds from this fund should be

One cannot doubt the optimism of

and In addition to this a general in
heritance tax should be Imposed with,
as I have stated, an exemption of at
least ten thousand dollars, and, If
constitutional, the same should be
made graduated rather than fixed.
I again recommend that there should
he an equalisation of saloon licenses
throughout the state by fixing the
maximum now provided by statute, In
order that the amount of this tax
should not be left to the whim or ca
price of the excise commissioners sad
county courts throughout the state.
There Is no work which Is more Im
portant for the people of this state to
actively encourage than the work of
building good permanent roads. Only
about 5 per cent of the 110,000 miles
of public roads of the state have been
made dependable for use 365 days in
the year. While more progress has
been made during the last two or
three years than In a long number of
years In the building of roads in this
state, much more should be done than
is done by the state to aid In the car
rying on of this work.
The state has a further Important
public duty to perform towards the
agricultural Interests of the state to
enlarging and Increasing education
and instruction In the proper use of
our soil. While Missouri deservedly '
ranks high in the production of agrl
cultural wealth and live stock, much ,
more could be done than has been :
done along these lines.
Another subject matter of legisla
tion deserving of the consideration of
this general assembly is the enact
ment of a law providing for the or
ganization of corporations for the pur
pose of extending credit to those en
gaged In agricultural pursuits.
The support of the state waterway
commission should be continued, and
the forestry commission, which has
existed without sanction of law,
should be provided for to look after
the proper conservation of the seven
teen millions of acres of woodland in
It should be a source of congratula
tion to the people of the state that
during the last four years they have
enjoyed a conduct of election affairs
which has given to every citizen the
right to cast one ballot and have that
ballot honestly counted as cast.
I feel that there should be a change
in what is known as the senatorial
primary election law. That law was
designed to prevent independence in
voting. It also results, in effect, in
the election of a candidate who may
receive a comparatively small portion
of the votes cast. I recommend
to this general assembly the adoption
of what is known as the Oregon plan,
in case it seems probable that the
amendment to the constitution, pro
viding for the direct election of United
States senators, will not secure the
approval of the necessary number of
states by 1914.
I prepared and secured the intro
duction In both the forty-fifth and
forty-sixth general assemblies of a bill
simplifying court procedure by pro
hibiting the reversal of cases upon
technicalities not controlling the mer
its of the litigation. Strange as it
may seem, this measure was defeated
in both of those general assemblies.
Now I am pleased to note that all the
leading political parties are agreed as
to the correctness of this measure,
and I hope that some legislation of
this character can be passed by this
Among the various departments of
government that are entitled to spe
cial mention on account of the effi
ciency with which they have been
conducted Is the banking department,
which for eight years has been under
the able supervision of Hon. John E.
Swanger. During the last four years
not a single cent deposited in any of
the state banks or trust companies
has been lost by the failure of such
bank or trust companies.
An amendment to the constitution
providing fot the initiative and refer
endum has now been a part of our
organic law for four years. In the
elections of 1910 and 1912 amend
ments to the constitution submitted
hy initiative petitions were voted
upon. While neither was adopted,
and while no occasion has arisen to
use the referendum, I believe, on the
whole, the effect of this amendment to
our constitution has been beneficial.
One of the most Important matters,
from a public standpoint, that will
come before this general assembly
will be the division of the state into
senatorial and congressional districts.
This question Is not only of political,
but of public importance.
In conclusion. I wish to express to
the people of Missouri, through you as
their chosen representatives, my sin
cere appreciation of the honor and
distinction I have enjoyed in the op
portunity for public service that they
have conferred upon me, and for the
loyal support I have received from
the people of the state in every good
work I have tried to accomplish. I
wish for this general assembly an
agreeable and useful session, and for
the newly elected state officials an
administration which will contribute
the success of every undertaking i
that will make for the happiness, the
prosperity and the welfare of the peo
ple of Missouri.

KING NEEDS A PRESS AGENT
"Publicity the Thing," English Pee

"If the growth of republicanism to
England It to be checked, Bucking
ham palace must organise a thorough
ly efficient publicity bureau," Is the
latest cry of the Imperialists, who
now from the Conservative party,
ays a London correspondent of the
Kansas City Star. The Court Cir
cular Is the nearest approach to a
publicity bureau that Lord Chamber
lain's department possesses. It us
ually runs something like this:
"The duke of So-and-So had the
honor of dining with their majesties.
The prime minister had sn audience
of his msjesty today," Or: "Her
majesty the queen honored Lady This
and That with her company at tea."
The whole thing suggests that the
editor la ashamed of the job. As a
result the monarchy boosters have to
employ unofficial reporters to chroni
cle auch Items as "Her majesty's
sympathy for the widows," "The
king's friendly chat with a pit boy,"
and so on. This Is a costly busi
ness. Just now the monarchy in general
and King George in particular needs
a good deal of advertising. Not that

Royalists argue that If the throne
Is necessary tor the solidarity of the

tlsed on business lines. Since the
, king is unfitted for doing it, the only
alternative Is the proposed publi.ity
bureau. Political advertising hat. de
veloped enormously during the last
, decade and the experiment recently
tried by the liberal administration of
advertising and explaining the mean
ing of various laws has undoubtedly
come to stay. Woman suffrage, pro
hibition, anti-vivisection, socialism,
! etc., and even anarchy are extensively
advertised the world over, so why
not the monarchy?
! Their greatest difficulty lies with
the people who immediately associate
with the royal family, for they are
men and women, mostly very estim
able people in their own way, who
have been taught from their earliest
years that advertisement is wholly

NO LONGER SELECTS THE HAT
Hubby's First and Last Experience at
a Millinery Store. Was Alto
gether Too Costly.
Congressman Ralph TV. Moss of In
diana did not care much for a hat his
wife wore. He finally spoke about It.
Mrs. Moss admitted that It was plain,
and. instead of taking exceptions to
her husband's remark, invited him to
accompany her the next time she
bought a hat.
"I can certainly pick out a better
cne than that," said Mr. Moss.
So they went to the store together.
Mrs. Moss said not a word as the
comely milliner displayed one beau
tiful bonnet after another. It was the
first time Mr. Moss had ever been In
a millinery store, but he appeared to
be at ease, and Anally selected one of
the most Joyful creations In the en
tire stock. Mrs. Moss looked well In
It. She was pleased.
"I'll take that." said the Iloosier
congressman. "How much Is It?"
"Forty dollars,'' said the pretty girl
without even a wink.
Mr. Moss saw blue stars, but luck
ily had Just come from the bank
and was able to produce that much
iu cash. Now he lets Mrs. Moss buy
her own hats and he does not com
plain about their being plain. Judge.
SKIN ERUPTION ON CHEEK
Kingsley, Mich. "Last May my
thirteen-months-old baby had a sore
come on her cheek. It started in four
or five Email pimples and In two or
three hours' time spread to the size of
a silver dollar. It spread to her eye.
Then water would run from the pim
ples and wherever that touched It caus
ed more sores until nearly all one
cheek and up her nostrils were one
solid sore. She was very fretful. She
certainly was a terrible looking child,
and nothing seemed to be of any use.
"Then I got some Cutlcura Soap and
Cuticura Ointment. She tried to rub
off everything we put on so that we
would sit and hold her hands for two
hours at a time, trying to give the
medicine a chance to help her, but
after I washed it with Cutlcura Soap
and then put on the Cutlcura Oint
ment they seemed to soothe her and
she did not try to rub them off. It
was only a few days before her face
was all healed up, and there has been

TOLD HER LIFE'S AMBITION
Small Girl Somewhat Crudely

I nearly always tell their ambitions to a
j well liked teacher, and one rather sur
! prising declaration was given by a
little maid In one of Miss Clara Town
send's room before she became princi
pal of the James school.
Among the special favors coveted
by the youngsters is the permission
to stay behind after school and clean
the blackboard. One evening a little
girl was given the desired privilege,
and while engaged In the task she
struck up a shy sort of conversation
with Miss Townsend. Finally the
usual confession was made.
"When I grow up I am going to be
a teacher," she announced.
"That so?" pleasantly asked Miss
Townsend. "And why do you want
to be a teacher?"
"Well." was the rather surprising
answer, "I'll have to be either s
teacher or a lady, and 1 would rather
be a teacher." Indianapolis News
