The taat time we atudled Old Test
ament hlntory, in Dec 1903, we left
the glory of Inreal at Ita cenltb.
The laat King, whose glory with
that of Urael' abone In combined
power, waa now dead. H la oq Ile
boboam waa to succeed him on the
throne of united IraL The burden
of taxation under Solomon bad been
severe, and they demanded that be
reduce tnetr burdens. There bad
some little amoke of Impending rev
olution during the last year of Sol
omons reign. So the elder of tliene
northern tribe came making de
mand of the new King. Thin re
quest waa led by leroboam the son
ofNebat, who caused Inrovl to :n.
Rehoboam requested three day in
which to consider the matter. So
after consulting the old men of the
kingdom who counselled conciliato
ry measures, be then asked tue
young men for their oplnloa, which
called for harsh measures, and be
adopted their advice. Much to the
chagrin ot the elder who presented
the demand. Thus be became an
agent in tbe fuffllment of a prophecy
that divided tbe kingdom into two
separate kingdom. HI reply long
rankled in their heart. "My father
made your yoke heavy and I will
add to your yoke; my father alao
chostitfed you with whips, but I wilt
cbaaUtfeyoa with scorpions."
Scbechem, which means "the
shoulder blade"; It Is a ridge or
height, sometime called Slchetu,
Sychnr, Sychem, while Venpaslan
named It Neapolls. It lay In a nar
row valley between mount Ebal and
mount Gcrlsen. In Samaria, in terri
tory allotted to Ephrtam being
thirty-four mile north of Jerusalem,
and seven miles aouth of Samaria.
It was a place established many
year ago. Tbe first record of It la
in Gen. xll. . It was a HItUc city.
Jacob bought hi "panvl of the
field." Here Abraham worhtied
under an immense oak tree. During
Jobuas' life time it was tlte center
of the union of tbe tribes. Here Ite
hoboam was guilty of his great fol

and tb birth of a new kingdom.

because of hi rnbitcs. After tbe
people of the northern tribe refuned
him. He sent Adoratu with lso.ooo
men to conquer tlte Mu'ls. The pro

that brought bad results. I once
kztew a man who had a splendid

moral law said they were wrong in

Tills kingdom was at the parting of
the way, Solomon's relga had been
one of magnificent luxury and splen
dor. The jeople had been surfeited
with the splendor of the kingdom.
Much the same principle in action
to-day that tells ot the decay of our
realthy families. Luxury always
brings waste, and waste when it is
full, brings forth decay, and decay
ends in death. "Change and decay
in all around I see, O. thou that
chajigest not abide Ith me."'
TUB INITIATIVE AND KEF-
Vf hat These Leg UlatlTC Reforms
Might Accomplish lor Mis
souri. The people of Missouri will be
called upon to vote at the next gen
eral election in November on the
constitutional amendment incorpor
ating; direct legislation by the initia
tive and referendum into our con
stitution of Missouri.
I have often been asked by intel
ligent and even well educated men
to explain by illustration the exact
meaning of tlitse worJs.
Direct legislation mean law
making directly by the people. It
is composed of two parts, tbe initi
ative and the referendum.
If the initiative were a part of
our constitution, then 10 per cent
of the qualified soteri of the stste,
which in Missouri would amount to
about 70,000 voters, could sign a
petition stating that they wanted a
certain law tnacteJ. Then under
the provisions of the ioi iativc.ifthe
legislature failed or rclnscJ to pjs
that law, it would have to be tub
milted to the whole people ot the
state, and at the general election it
would be printed on all the ballots,
and every voter of the state, irre
spective of party, could vote yea or
no cm that question and if it was
approved by a majority it w ould be
come a law directly by that action
ol the people and without tr.e con
sent oi the law would then read:
Be it enacted by the tevrrt;n peo
ple ot Missouii, instead of : He it
enacted by the legUlatis assttul!
The referendum it another put
of this same sytcm.
With tbe referendum in force, if
the legislature pasted a law that
waa tit-noxious to the people or that
th ptople consiJcreJ uniutt or c
puim or if the let;tuie gave
away tor btt! or notlan; valua
ble franchise that th people J:d
not want given away, then 10 per
cent of the voters ot the state could
within 90 il.is after the aJijuir
ment of th lei!ituie slit a peti

p'e of the Hate, nd snder the pro
visions of the referendum this law
would have to be printed on all tl.e (
bslSota at tbe r.nt general eJectioe,
na 11 pprovea oy a mijirirj ci
the people, then ail then em'v
would it become a law. But if re
jected by a majority ol voter tier
j it would become nut! and void and
be marked vetced by the severe :j3
people of Missouri.
These two principle the initiative :
and referendum, combined ia our
constitution, would constitute the j
system known ss direct legislation.
Everybody ca eatily jage by
tbe above that it would be a com
plete and specific cure for the cor
ruption that baa invaded our political
Nobody will try to bribs thou
who will no longer be able to de
liver the goods. After tbe adop
tion of the referendum tbe whole
people alone will be able to make
final deliver of franchise, etc.
Prof. J. R. Commons, the well
known profrsser of sociology sod
politics! economy, said: -The
greatest issue before tbe American
people today i bribery." No re
form movement, no citizen's union
or tbe like can fully cope with it.
Tbe referendum alone it a complete
aud specific cure for this condition.
It alone goes to tbe source of cor
ruption. It deprive legislators and
executives of their monopoly of
government and the power to tell.
After the adoption ot the referen
dum they will no longer be able to
deliver the good."
Hon. Jot. W. Folk taid that if
the referendum had been in force in
Missouri there would have been no
need of bit boodle prosecution be
