Governor M linnald's message seems to have made a good impres- j sion. It contained nothing radical, in the opinion of hotli v publicans and democrats, nothing more radical, as one state official put it, than recommending taxation on the' out put of eoal mines ami urging the cnnsolidation of the hoards of re- gents of the state's ednrntional instl- i tutiona. Of course, several of the suggestions will meet determined op position and the last-named Is one of them. The hureau of immigration recommendation will also he oppos ed, there being sentiment for anoth er effort to vest the duties of immi gration commissioner in the commis sioner of public lands. The governor's Int itnat i n that $2, 000 a year was enough for county of ficials is also unpopular with many, who assert that county school super intendents, assessors', collectors and county clerks should have not less than from $:40l to S3,oiio h year.
