VOL XXI!!. ABILENE, KANSAS, THURSDAY MORNING. AUGUST 2, 1906 NO. 47. .. it-:'- A Pure Democracy," Mr. Burton's Address. iv i h. ' Houinotok, July 37 List evening t this bustling littl. oity Ex Senator Barton wai mat it ths train by a maltltad. ol people aooompanied by brut hand. Tbi. Uleoted man waa glr.n an ovation mob a. law men are accorded. Everyone wanted to grasp bit hand. Men and women preiied around him and hit welcome to oar little city was hearty and generona. A great wheat orop had jail been bar - vetted bat now all the work la laid - aiide and the town and county la given over to the aimple joye of Harvest Home. Friday afternoon the new opera home waa well filled to hear Mr. Bar ton'i addreas. The meeting waa pro- aided over by Hon. W. H. Eioe who aerved in the Kansas legislature with Mr. Barton In 1889. The chairman j introduced Jndge 0. J. Banta ol Great Bend who in a few well directed worda introduced the speaker who. wu greeted by the aadlenoe amid a atorm of appiauae. Conrta might de cide agatnat him bat that audience certainly believed In him. The aubjeot that he apoke upon w.i, "A Pare Demooraoy." His peeoh abounded in faota and logic brightened np by flight, of oratory of whioh he i. a matter. Ha bad lost none of hia old time vigor. Coder the enoonragtng attention of the audi noe he delivered a clear atatement of the original plan and deaign of oar government. He taid in part: The founder, of oar government having fought for aeven yeara to throw off the oppreiiion of the mother country feared the power of govern' ment. Ihie fear of power waa the controlling thought In forming our ayatem of government, hence the gov ernment wu divided into legislative, executive and judicial branohea. It waa the intention that each branch ahould be independent and aeparate from the other.. That neither ahould trenoh upon the prerogative, or dutiei of the other.. ' Congrea. wm to enact the law., the executive waa to pat them in opera' tion and the judlolal to interpret them. The exeoutive and legi.lative were politloal offlcere eleoted by the peo ple. Bat the jadiaiary waa expected to be pure, to be appointed for life nd to be wholly removed from poli tic. Time ha. brought abiut many Chang, from the original deaign. The three brancheaof our government tnatead of being kept aeparate and independent, have bean blended to gether. The exeoutive baa the ap pointing power of the judioiery. Tola power ia delegated to the legi.lative br.noh In turn for legi.lative power. Thli make, a trafllo in patronage and the congressman baa to vote and do a. the exeoutive wllle. Thua if yon want a poatmaater to J whom ahail you go to have one ap pointed?, You go to the congressmen What! Go to the legi.lative to have an exeoutive offloer appointed F That ia the only way it oan be done. Then in return for tbla appointment the oongrea.man muat work and vote for anoh legislation aa the exeoutive di note, Theae exeoutive offloer. who are to appointed are expeoted to io manago local politic aa to perpetuate the oongreaaman In office. If a United 8tatee judge la to be ap pointed, the appointment it madeby' a United State aenator and tbla (ena- tor in turn baa the confirming power of then appointment, and la required to vote euoh legislation aa the exeeu' tive may will. Thua the blending of the depart ment, and branohea of onr govern' ment plaoea all power in the execu tive., a few aenator. and congressmen -and the speaker of the houee of repre aentativea. j United States district judges are all candidates for promotion to the clr- ouit or supreme benoh and tbe judge that wanta promotlcn muat look to the exeoutive and a few Influential aenatora. Thi politioal concentra tion of power oreatea a politioal oom mnnity of Interests which I. connect ed by an umbilioal oord with the great oommerolal oommunity of inter eata. A few oaptain. of indu.try oombining m.k. the commercial oom. munity of Interests and working with the politioal community of interests to control the property and pollttoa of the country. He alto emphasized he fact that it waa a aiatake to attribute bad government to dishonest men or to suppose that politicians were aa general thing dishonest. It I. bid polloie. that make bad government and good polioiea that make good government. No matter bow honest ths sen' ator or congressman may be the pre.. ent use of patronage makea him a bribe giver and a bribe taker. He trades hi. vote on legiil.tivemea.are. for the prlvelege of exeroiilng the power to oppoint a postmaster or a United Statea maralial. , Altogether it waa pronouncd by all who heard it to be the greatest apeeoh ever heard in the oity. No matter what misfortunes over took him In bis politioal oaresr he atill holda hia place In the hearta of the people In thia wheat belt. F. M. McHali.
