Senator Young Shows Its
Possibilities in Speech
As Logan City Is about to change
her form of government and operato
under what Is known as tho Des
Moines plan of government, wo print
Itorowlth an address by Senator La
fayette Young of Iowa, the homo of
tho Des Moines plan, on tho commis
sion form, of government. Mr. Young
Is an nrdont advocate of tho system,
and recently made tho following ad
dress In the U. S. Senate:
"Mr. President: If I had anticipated
the long and Interesting debato which
has Just taken place on tho matter
of newspaper circulation and postage,
I should not have given notlco of an
Intention to submit remarks today on
a subject Involving many phases of
representative government.
"The Intelligent observer must
havo discovered during tho past 23
years a constant and general Increase
not in the functions of government,
but In tho subdivisions and consequent
division of authority among those who
dlschargo thoso functions. I refer to
tho government of tho states ns well
as to tho government of tho nation.
In every state thero nro samples of
duplicated power. For Instance, whore
a county contains a largo city thoro
Is jnalntalned both a county nnd .1
city government In tho action lately
the country had an example of an ef
fort upon tho part of tho President of
tho United States to discover whether
ho or tho head of the Bureau of For
estry was running tho country.
Strangely enough a considerable num
ber of American people Joined In the
controversy and helped the subordin
ate to the belief that ho was running
tho country.
"I bellevo that government Is best
which Is most slmplo and direct and
thus easily comprehended. The ten-'
doncy In the business world has been
for many years toward concentration,
but In our political affairs we may be
following tho example of the Chlneso
Empire, where every educated man is
supposed to bo in tho employ of tho
government. When ho comes out of
scho61, If thoro Is no offlco for him to
hoUCthoy assign him to watching
another Chinaman who already holds
an office. In other words, they put
thp young Chinamen to watching tho
old Chinamen. The division nnd di
versification of authorty has resulted
in tho "Muebookj" of tha majority of
the states being burdened with tho
names of boards of rovlow, commit
tees, nnd commissions almost without
number. It is a peculiarity of Ameri
can government for those charged
with authority to dolegato a part of
to somebody else. This results in
great confusion and In no practical
help to tho people.

Those of the United States regular troop who have been ordered to Texas

Judge Maughan Imposes Fine H

Four young men of Logan appeared H
beforo Judge Maughan In tho district H
court last Saturday afternoon oil a. H
statutory charge. It seems that tho H
boys had been too familiar with a H
similar number ot girls, who through H
tho action ot Juvenile Court Judge IL H
A. l'cdcrseu, not very long ago were H
sent to tho reform school. In tho evl- H
denco presented, conditions woro ro- H
vcnled that not only residents of this H
city, but transients Inveigled young H
girls Into lives of shame. Judge H
Maughan was especially Bevero In tho H
case ot one, when he said, "It It could H
bo proved that ho had been responsible H
for the downfall ot tho girl In ques- H
tlon a charge of felony would havo B
.been Instituted.' An attorney for one H
-ofNuq boys raised thojiuestlon t'ut

openly accused them of a grave M

this, rose to his feet and'jisked per- M
