Fellow Citizens: In compliance with the will- of the sovereign people of Kansas; in accordance with the con stitution of the state, I have appeared here today to take the oath of office as your chief state executive, and with deep and solemn realization of the re sponsibilities imposed, to pledge and promise you before God, the Almighty Ruler, to consecrate to the people of my native state all my energies and my utmost ability. God help me to be faithful to the trust given me this day. To my associates in every depart ment of the state administration, I offer congratulations upon the oppor tunity we together have to- serve the people of Kansas;. I promise them my whole-hearted cooperation in their work. To my predecessor in "the of fice of Governor, who has given this state his best service the last two years," I join with all Kansas in wish ing happiness and success in whatever he undertakes. - No Pet Measures. My friends, I am to be your execu tive for the next two years the first governor chosen by the suffrage of both the men and the women of the state. I shall earnestly endeavor to be the faithful and conscientious steward of the state which has hon ored me; to be in every official act just and fair; to avoid favoritism and partisianship, and to serve faithfully the whole state. I have no pet schemes nor fads to introduce; no po litical panacea to propose; no revolu tionary methods to try. I shall simp ly endeavor to do my duty thoroughly and to administer the affairs of the state in a business-like manner. I shall have need of your patience' and forbearance. Above all, I ask the broadminded, patriotic men and wom en of Kansas of all political parties, to co-operate with me in working out the many problems with which our state government is con cerned. Your responsibility for good government does not cease when you cast your ballot; no governor alone can accomplish what you in your hearts want done for Kansas. Looking For Better Ways. . We live in a day of readjustments. This second decade of the Twentieth Century is a time of unrest, of change. Mankind is examining the old ways and is asking with a new insistence if there be better ways. Science and invention, by a series -of marvelous and bewildering discoveries, in a sin gle generation, have completely rev olutionized our material life and the business methods of the civilized world. New utilities have changed our methods of work and our manner of living. And along with these won derful inventions, has come an en larged and, I think, wholesome view of the function of government, which brings with it the imperative neces sity of a revision and rearrangement of much of our governmental systems But in the business of government local, state and national we have been slow to adopt the scientific meth ods which are working out so satisfac torily in private business. Until quite recently the term efficiency in this specialized significance has hardly been thousht of in connection with public affairs. As an' inevitable consequence the burdens of taxation have increased at an alarming rate without commensur ate benefit to the public. Under our antiquated, incoordinate, cudSbersome system unsulted to modern business conditions, we invite graft and encour age carlessness. and in the end have a government that is wasteful, expen sive, and inadequate to our growing needs. Must Have Business- Methods. The day has come when we people of Kansas must give most serious at tention to the urgent necessity of many changes in the business meth ods of our state and county and muni cipal government. I do not believe that the state government should be made the experimental ground for fads; for sudden, sweeping changes, nor for wild or revolutionary depart ures from known or worked-out meth ods; we cannot afford to try out dreams at the people's expense.- But Kansas must adopt, in the ad ministration of public affairs, a mod ern, scientific, business system which will eliminate what is useless and pro vide for more direct, more economical and more efficient methods. It is not enough to elect honest men, cr well meaning men, cr capable men to posi tions of trust and responsibility if we tie their hands with useless red tape and enforce upon them cumbersome, expensive and wasteful methods. - , Requires Scientific Study. This needed reorganization Is not the work of a day nor of one adminis tration. . It will require constant study of the most searching, scientific na ture, and statesmanship -cf the most practical order, prompted and backed by an honest determination to give the people of Kansas the most effi cient system of government that can be devised for them. Kansas is still a young state, but we believe it to be a state destined under the providence of the Almighty to great things. We have many tasks before ns; ma terial tasks which need money for their accomplishment. The standara of our rural schools must be raised and our state educational institutions be kept on a par with the best of any state in the Union. We must improve our nublic roads and highways. The State's latent resources must be de veloped. Several of our penal and charitable Institutions demand imme diate improvement and increased fa culties. Need To Watch Expenditures. We cannot ignore all these insistent demands. Kansas could use profitably . ten times the amount of money that our tax levy provides. But there is a time Tor all things, and I do not be lieve that the people of Kansas are in a. nuuvl to sanction large expenditures at this time or heavy Investments for the future, while the world Is going through one the greatest crises in its history. Business has been demor alized to an extent that - we in pros perous, sun-warmed, God-favored Kan sas do not realize. I am not pessimistic: I do not think America Is to have a protracted period of business depression, but I believe this Is the year of all years to use the pruning knife on appropriations: to eliminate every useless public posi tion; to see to It that men who are elected or appointed to perform cer tain duties, perform them themselves instead of delegating them, to assis tants; to adopt a policy of rigid econr omy in public affairs. - Make Simple and Just Laws. In this necessary policy of economy. I hope we may see the desirabality of restraint In creating - needless legis lation. We make too many laws. Our need is not more laws, but laws made so plain, so simple, so direct and so lust that the humblest citizen can know them and understand them and respect them and obey them. A certain amount of legislation Is necessary, but in practice how often do we find a personal motive or a pri vate interest prompting the introduc ing of a -bill; how often do we find members voting with small regard to the intent or effect of a measure; with the result that hastily-drawn, ill-considered, ill-advised measures are en acted into laws, cumber our statute books, breed litigation, and work hard ships to a patient and long-suffering people. I hope the Kansas legislature of 1915 will give most careful consid eration to the need, the intent and the form of every measure which comes before it, that our people may have constructive legislation and be spared a flood of unnecessary and confusing laws. Kansas Has Constructive Laws. Kansas has a shining record of ac complishment in the field of success ful, constructive legislation. Its pro hibitory law, equal suffrage law, its "blue sky" law, its bank guaranty law, its primary election law, its anti-pass law, its pure food law and Its . state text-boote law, show the progressive, forward-lookyig spirit of the Kansas people. . GOV. ARTHUR CAPPER. There has been a genuine effort in Kansas to incorporate into our "body politic, fundamental, moral ideas. We have tried to base our laws upon eter nal truths which tend to righteous' ness. Kansas comes nearer giving every man, woman and child within its borders an absolutely square deal and equal chance in every department of life than any-ther commonwealth in this union. Our material pros perity, our high standards of public morals, our personal well-being are largely due to the fact that for more than thirty-years the open saloon has been an outlaw in this state. Our phy sical development has not been stunt ed, and our moral sense has not been blunted by the degenerating influ ences of drink. There cannot be any temporizing with the liquor curse, nor should there be any compromise with its partner in crime, the red light dis trict. - To Lead in National Prohibition. The record Kansas has made in proving that prohibition does prohibit the blessings which have followed its enactment as a part of our funda mental law, makes it incumbent upon us as a duty to the nation as well as a policy of self-protection to take the lead in an active propaganda for ra- tional Prohibition.- . Pledges Vigorous Championship.' .We have had nation-wide prohibi tion in all great American Industries for nearly ten years. National Prohi bition itself should no longer- be de layed. It- will not be long in coming if Kansas .people give the -movement their active leadership and their vig orous championship. . I here pledge you that my utmost endeavor shall be to aid this movement, to use all the in fluence I possess, aa a citizen, as a newspaper man, and as a public offi cial, to advance this great cause. I rejoice with the people of Kansas that the women of our State have been admitted to their full rights of citizen ship. The influence of Kansas should be exerted in every possible way to bring about equal suffrage la the na tion. Try as we may, we move slowly toward the ultimate goal of mankind the brotherhood of man. - In the two years we are now entering upon, may we people of Kansas do our part tn that slow but sure advance in human progress ; for loftier ideals; for a wider and deeper Justice; for a quick ened sense of public honor and public duty; toward making onr-- beloved state a little cleaner, a little more de cent, happier, and more God-like. 1 QUAKER MEDITATIONS.

You must pass with out following them the secret wind ing stairs leading up or down to un known places You will never know all you really own. You will never see the festive hall with its. brilliant revels, nor the taper-lit chapel with its mystic ecsta sies you will never find the hidden chamber with its lotus joys, nor the romantic balcony with its bizarre as semblage you will never reach the tiny tower room with its view across land and sea and up Into the skies. . .

Adv. Bacteria , in Coal. Mr. C. Potter has recently shown before the Royal society in London that in certain conditions of exposure to the air charcoal, coal, peat and oth er amorphous forms of carbon under go - a slow process of oxidation pro duced by bacteria. It is suggested that this fact may account for the deteri oration of stored coal, its gradual loss of weight, and its occasional sponta neous heating in ships' bunkers. If the bacteria are not the sole cause of these things they may induce them, chemical oxidation accompanying and continu ing that begun by the organic agents. The carbonization of vegetable coals, says a French writer. Is due to the in tervention of microbes at the begai ning of their fossilization. When the coal reaches the air again, other bac terid take up the work of fermentation that was interrupted millions of years ago. Youth's Companion. Exit Father.
