"A new haw relating to initiative anli referendum measures and other mutters submitted to the people pro vidtis i form of ballot which, by f-r lying the title of tl1li measure pro pused, will be intelligible to every voter. i ommendable legislation was en aited for the encouragement of those misguided unfortunates who, from auses which are sometimes ieyond their control, transgress the law. I refer to the act peiritting judges to imposo suspended sentences upon 'first offenders' and to the law creat ing the office of state parole commis sioner, and empowering hiti tl direct and assist those who, having paid the penalty for their misdeeds, are de sirous of again becomling worthy mem hers of society. In its larger sense a responsibility which is too often ne glected, and which tends toward the defeat of its very object-the refor niation of the criminal-and I regard these two measures as of the highest service. Humane Officer. "Another cotmmenttI~ble piece of hu nitnitarian legislatiton - as the act pro viding for a special deputy humane officer, whose duties are to find good homes for the orphaned children of the state and to attend to the welfare of those wsej may be gG11pted .frul State institutions. 1A p.4W~ttop 1 to Aug giving to those children a better op portunity to bI o0me educated and useful citizens, the carrying out of the provisions of this act will serve to re lieve the state of a portion of the financial turden incident to the care and education of the homeless little ones of Montana. "In the economic field, the legisla tI3o passed two important acts, the neasures prohibiting unjust disc5rimi nation on the Dart of both the buyer and the seller. "I think that the record, as here outlined, and v13hich includes only those no asures which are of superior importance, is one of which any legis lative assembly might well be proud, and is a record of accomplishment worthy of the serious consideration of all good citizens. "Put toe record of the legislature be side the democratic state platform, and the dem3o3iatle party and the present demiociratiC administration lhive few apoilgies to make. Pledge Which Failed. '.()ne important pledge of the party whiili failed of fulfillment at this ses sion, and o033 3ct which a considerable portion of our people hoped for in vain, w0i3s the ci3pensation mieasiure; hut for the failure of the legislature to en(1 t this important piece of legis lation, there were undoubtedly mIiti gating circumstances. In the first I place, the entire theory of workei'n's (3mpulsory com' ensation is new 1nd has been tried by but few states in dhis I'nion. Involving, as it does, the over-tarning of conunon law which has been recognized for centuries, it is not surprising that many peoile who haul not given the subject serious thought, would question its advisa hility. Again, it was found that not only were some of the closest stu dents of this subject at variance as to the very principle of a law that would he best suited to conditions as they apply in Montana, but that among those who might ultimately be come hineficaries under this law there was found a marked difference of opinion. "Compensation, however, has not been defeated; it has only been de layed. The lills which were intro duced at the last session, the debates upon the floor of the house and the senate, the public hearings which were held-all these have contributed to the awakening of an enlightened public in terest which will unquestionably bear I fruit. As I said in my message to the legislature, our present method of dealing with cases involving employes who have suffered accidents in the cotrse of their employment is satis factory to no one, and the failure of the compensation measures presented to the legislature, and the attendant discussion of this important subject will, in my judgment, result in 'the enactment, withing the next two years, of a comprehensive and just law, which will receive the hearty approval of both the employe and the employer, a law which, while able to stand the solid test of constitution ality, will at the same time bring about all possible safeguards for human life and limb, and make cer tain and secure the ample and just ,ecomaoqnse which iadustry uudoubt BIJOU TODAY AndBIJOU MATINEE EVERY DAY, 2 o'CLOCK SISTERS ALL A Social Problem Solved In a splendid Vitagraph drama featuring the most popular ac tress, Miss Florence Turner, supported by an all-star cast.
