centennial.
WATTERSOX'S LAST SPEECH
"Watterson, who is vice president gen
eral of the interstate Perry centenary
commission. in his speech announced
that this was the last public address he
Intended to make. He dwelt upon what
he declared to be "a peril menacing
the future of the republic."
"We are told." he said, "and most of
us believe, that those are best gov
erned who are least governed. Yet
we have one big congress in the na
tion's capital and 48 little congresses
In the several state capitals constantly
in session to make and unmake laws
to vex the people and confuse ' the
courts. » ' : ' ;
"The danger Is admitted. Clearly
•■Being the evils of too much legisla
tion, we call for more. Through chance
majorities, stable in nothing, we would
regulate the tastes, morals and habits
of the people by act of assembly. '
Perennially . reproaching r congress,
we . would nevertheless augment the
powers of congress. We are creating a
system of centralized bureaucracy and
supplementing the \ civil service with
multifarious commissions.
GRADUAL REFORM STAGES
"We hai-e not been so well governed
that we may not be better governed.
But I would summon reform through
reason, not emotion. I would have
regeneration come by growth, not by
spasm; and bo, despite the impatient
and unthinking , , I look for them to
come in their own good time and order;
because I have faith- in that people
who seem; chosen iof God.
"Perry nailed to his masthead the
brave words of the unconquerable
Lawrence: 'Don't give ;up the ship! .
"May we not amplify . and extend
them to embrace the sweep and reach
of our institutional system? On land
and sea, in glory and in :■; peril, -when
ever the republic t rides f the waves \ too
proudly or is threatened by loss; within
or without, let us take them as a
message from heaven and pass i. them
on to ovir neighbors and teach them
to our children, 'Don't give up the
ship!' "Don't give up the ship!' 'Don't
give ip the ship!"'
In beginning his address Air. Water
son said:
"This is an age of centenaries. We
have assembled to commemorate a
victory, gained by the American; over
Ihe British a hundred years ago.
PA I I. JONES' EXAMPLE
"Within the radius of but little fur?
tber than the eye can .reach from where
we are • gathered, r all ; that makes us
proud of our country—the very rose
and expectancy of American manhood—
Joined heart : and hand i during the un
forgetable autumn of 1813. Except for
the sailors of .Rhode'; Island, the ! t hunt
ers of Kentucky could not have crossed
these deepe; except: for the hunters
of Kentucky, Perry's incomparable ex
ploit had been barren 4of results;; \';_
"Turn we seaward. John Paul : Jones

work has been ; impossible up ;to this :
time due to the absence of the neces- i

with bond issue funds and upon its
completion the lateral sewers in the
avenues intersecting; will be ; con
structed. ' ' . "■■„ <p.i
The construction of the Marshall
primary school, at Fifteenth and Capp

up to this time on , account of
a . delay in disposing of the neces- i
sary bonds to insure its erec
tion, will be begun within J 60 I
days. The plans of this structure were
altered when the site was changed
from •Nineteenth . and Angelica streets |

the Mission grammar * school at ■ Six

tains the grammar grades of the Mar

workers and calls attention to the fact
that President Gallagher, with a full
knowledge of the fact f that the dele

workers had been unseated .5 from the
Labor council * because ' they ; were ? dele
gates* from a dual organization, and
this ;: only ? when J realized ." that fj if the
delegates were not unseated the char
ter of the council would be revoked,
"flew; into , a rage at - the '; idea that [ men
should go -■ on strike , without securing
the ' 'consent': of *; the council" and went
so far as to say "that if the Light and

tion and indorsement of '■ the council
he would leave • the ? chair, but that '. he
subsequently > ' executed :-t a somersault
