P. L. DEUEL. ELLENSBURG, WASH., SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1897. NOPSIS OF tiOV. ROGERS ! fNAUCIuRAL A 1)1) HESS*. Oi.YMi iA Wk., January 18: The state officers elected lasl November were inaugurated today. Vox the first time in the history of the com monwealth of Washington, includ ing its territorial and state carreer, the excutive aud legislative branch es passed from the control of the Republicans. A clean sweep was made in all the Plato departments. The new incumbents took the oath ; of office ;it. noon :v.>.d their new for* : cea of deputies and clerks also were installed. Tlie inaugural cerni mioa were simple. Goveanor lingers walked 11<> the en pi vol accampanied by a few Mends. The Senate nnd House L'met in joint session i:i the house chamber. Chief Justice adm inter* ed the oath to the new governor, who was introduced to tho joint as sembly and the throng of spectators. Hundred - crowed around the build ing unable to gain admission. Immediately after taking the oath of oflice, Govenor lingers pro ceded to read his inaugural address. He read it in o clear, distinct voice, and every word of it was recievcd with rapt attention. The inaugural portion of the address is very brief, it merely stales the fundamental pridcipal that all valid law is based on that instinctive apprehension of justice which finds universal lodg ment in the heart of man. Helving upon this, and upon his own clear ly felt consiouanesa of right intent, the Governor promises a strict ad herence to law and linn detormin ' .lion to execute it without fear or favor. The rest of the address com prise* about 7,000 words, tt if iv ;Ho nature of a measage outlining the policy of the new adniinstalion and suggesting reforms in the way ol retrenchment in expences and ; simplification of County and State machinery. Governor Rogers enumerates the bounteous resources of the s( ite, giving a passing' view of the forests, mines grain fields, river- and har bors, and pais a tribute the self-re liant, industrious and energetic peo ple who inhabit this region. "And yet," he says, "that all is not well with us we arc agreed. No honest man can say that labor received the full measure or just return for its performance. Times arc hard we say, and propeny is depreciating below the value it should justly hold." The Governor ascribes this condition chiefly to the appreciating value of money consequent upon the demonetization of silver and establishment of the gold standard, i He tells the legislators thai they are here to make and mend the laws. The people look to them for relief. In compliance with Section 6, Article 3, of the state constitu tion, the Governor then proceeds to make recommendations, iietore do ing so in detail, however, he ap ' peals to the patriotism of the Sena | tors and Represenatives and earn estly warns them against the dan ; gers of factional controversy. ''For when this is aroused," he says, i "earnest endeavor and high patri ; otic resolve perish, in the tierce heat ; engendered by the struggle for place." He deplores that a sena torial election is to be held at this , critical juncture and admonishes the members of the fusion People's : party in control of the legislature ; not to imperil the existence of the political compact by means of ■ which their election was secured, • and which, if rightly guided aud , honesfriv managed, wiii finally and A PRIZE TAKER Is THE Dawn and the Seattle Weekly Times one year for ONE DOLLAR!

The law makers are sent to the legislature, not as the agents of this or that man or this or tnat political faction, bui rather as the represen tatives of a poeple united in their demand for relief and earnestly de sirous of obtaining it, by constant, unselfish political action. "Law, to he respected and obeyed,'' says Gov. Rogers," must follow and not pre cede public opinion." He advises that whatever laws may be enacted should be the result of mature de liberation, supported by the gener al average approval of the people of Washington. lie reminds the! legislators that revolutions have al ways had more to fear from reaction I than from any and all things else, j because adventurous spirits have in their zeal outstripped public opinion. "Better a thousand times to stop short of the exercise of our whole power," the governor says, "then to exceed it by so much as a fractional parV of a grain." With respect to the revnue laws, Governor Rogers expresses the opin ion that the collection of taxes in volves an exercise of forces repug ant to the independent spirit of American character. 13ut the peo ple quickly recognize and apprecate , M.M'tvi fU ON PAOJE TWO. i A POPULIST CITY. Wonderful Improvement in the old Scolch town. A good Place lor Boss Ridden Cities to get ideas of Reform. Glasgow will levy no taxes after January I, 1897. The revenues de rived from two public utilities own ed by the city, including the street car service, the gas and electric; light service, the water supply and : other public monopolies are now sufficient to pay nil expenses of the city government. The most sur prising part of the whole matter is [ the fact that this remarkable n chievement has been accomplished with tin immense reduction in the cost of service to the public. Glasgow js a city of about 792,000 population- In IS'dl it was only 77,000. It has made a larger growth than any other European city since that date. Its great university, over 100 years old, is famous the world over. Its public libraries, museums and technical schools are the pride of the city. The general intelli- | gence of this great university town is unequalled in Europe- It* sani-! tary condition is of the lirst class. ( It ranks next to London in size among the cities of Great Britain. In word, it i<» the model city of to The Dawn 1 year and Money Hand Book 50c. PRICE 2 CENTS. I day. j The leading source of municipal i revenue iv Glasgow is the street rail* j way gystem, and although the city ! bought the street car service less than three years ago, July 1. 1894, ! the interest on the debt and provis j ion for a sinking fund made' after j mooting these iixed charges and the coal of ivpair and maintenance | there was a balance at the clo.se of j the year pad. July 1.1897, of $408,- --01 !. The faro is one cent for half ! mile rielo~, and the average faro for the 86,462,000 passengers carried Iduring the year is U.-s than 1 7-8 cents. Tho cost of water and ga* service has likewise boon greatly re j duced, and yet the revenue has been ) increased. Glasgow owns its own street ear • line-, water work- 1 , eras works, elec ; trie light plant, aud uli other public i utilities. ll has created magnificent public ! markets, bought up and torn down old tenement rookeries and built ;: i ignifxeont modern hou?es in which the poor can have ail modern con jveniences at a very small rent, and undertaken many other improve ' ments never before attempted by a j municipality before, many of which j have been described in these col* j umns. When the municipality had pro ; vided comfortable quarters for that | great mass of the poor dependent I upon lodging houses for shelter, it was found that there was still ono el tss for whom no provision had been made—viz, the widowers and widows who are compelled tobeab j sent front home during the day and ■have no means of assuring them irtelves of the caro of their children ' during this period. To supply this want a '"family home" has been ; erected, which, both for arrange* meat at I management, standalone in the history ef modern m unci pal i enterprises. The "home" is situated in the poorest section of the city, and thus most conveniently placed for ; the class it is intended to reach. There are accomodations for about 165 small families. In addition lo | the ordinary bed and living rooms there are reading, smoking, recrea tion anl dining room. For the children there are a spacious nur -urv and roof garden. The nur* jsery i? in charge of aspesial trained ; nurse who has several others under her direction. Hot and cold water I baths aud specially constructed Ismail kitchens for the preparation of infants' food are districted j throughout the building. With all these comforts and oonvienees tho | cost has been kept to the lowest pos sible level. A mother with one ; child pays 78 cents per week; with two children 98 cents. A father with one child pays 93 cents per week; with two children $1.19, and with three children $1,28. The ! charge for board are For adults, I per day, breakfast, 5 cents; dinner . 8 cents', aud tea, (5 cents. For child* ' ren, per week 45 cents for single I child, 39 cents each for two in a family, and 38 cents each for three or more in a family. Although the '"home" has been opened but a few months, the difference in appearance between the children living there land those in the immediate neigh* horhood is already apparent. An other advantage which is not to be 1 ignored*, is the fact that the low | charges act as an incentive to father ! and mother to support the children | and keep them with them rather than have them become a charge upon public or private charity. It |is believed that the "family home" j will soon come tohavea permanent | place in the institutions of the cities of Great Britain. All reports agree that there is little or no crime in Glasgow. And now there will be no more taxes while every public utility i . cheaper.
