It may not bo Inappropriate to briefly
remind you of. our country's remarkable
nehlevemenlH durlmr tho century now

foos have been triumphantly
wnifcd: our national Independence
wrought and tho supremacy of American
irniH established. The most gigantic civil
conflict In history has been fought by our
eople, Its Issues forever settled, and tho
uncle country Indlssolubly bound together
lu bonds of Internnl love. Ouin has

lands of bondage. Krom a few thinly
populated states on tho eastern coast our
nation has extended Its territory by con-Hurst
and purchnso from ocean to ocean
and rroni the gulf In the lakes, and our
population has grown to moro than
of freo people. Stated more vast
than old world empires ImVo been carved

that only tho coupon bonds Issued July,

' However, tho resources of tho treasury

upon which tho stnto is required

tho' funds for which thesa bonds wero

r.eneral expenditures of tho stato government.
In order that tho present condition
of our flnnnca may ba Justly appreciated,
it ,1s well to contrast it with
that prevailing in March, 1S03.
It will bo seen that not only havo thw

Tho recent decision In the suprtfno
court of tho United States, holding that
the provision in our revenue net of 1802
authorizing tho assessment .of tho capital
stock ot nntlonnl banks Was Hi conflict
with the United States fitututest demands,
you attention. Tho uCt referred
to should be so amended as to hurmonlza
with tho United Stntes statues and provide
for the proper assessment of tho
shares of stock of theso institutions for
purpose of stnto and local taxation.
A well regulnted law providing a license
tax or wholesale ilqUor dealers and
Increasing the tux of rctnll dealers would
produco considerable revenue. The license
on circuses might well be increased
and regulated according to the population
of the various Counties in which
I lic.y exhibit. A small fee might be charged
or each commission Issued to an officer.
Thlrf fen would generally bo cheerfully
paid. Tho tax on deeds and
should bo regulated according to
the valuo of tho property mortgaged or
conveyed. Under the present aw, tho
tax on a deed conveying $50,000 Worth
of property Is no moro tjian on a deed
convoying property valued at $100. This
Is inequitable und should be remedledi
No genuine thinker or trUo patriot over

declaration uttered nearly 23 centuries
ago by Aristotle, that tho fate ot empires
depends upon the education of tho children.
It Is In common accord with tho
common experience of mankind, nnd Is
abundantly illustrated In every essential
advancement in civilization. It applies
with peculiar force to states with a republican
form of government whoso real
strength and stability rest alono with tho
people. It Is, therefore, of the utmost
importnnco thnt nontucky should zealously
guard her common school Interests,
it Is a matter for congratulation
that the reboots continue to grow In efficiency,
nnd popular favor from year to
yrur, as Is ovldenced by better attendance.
Increased number of districts that
furnish local aid and more thorough preparation
on tho part of teachers.
The per capita for tho school years ending
June 30, is.,, ISO, 180il, reached tho
high water mark, being $2.73. $2.85 nnd $2.80
respectively for i.ieso years.
After tho per capita for tho school year
ending June SO, 1800, had been fixed, lnrffe
sums of back taxes were collected from
railroads and other sources, which materially
nuemented tho school fund. Tills
enabled tho administration to fix tho per

A suitable building, properly furnished,
Is a prerequisite to every school dlstilct.

holding thnt tho constitution limits the
indebtedness of school districts to tho
nmount of ono year's levy, makes it practically
Impossible for poorer districts to
bui.il comfortable houyes, nnd furnish
them under liny rate of district taxation
short of practical confiscation, and
emphasizes tho necessity for action by
this general assembly for their relief.
In many statiB the township or county
rnt.ier than the school district Is made
the Unit for tnxatlon. i no desired
might result from legislation along
these lines. Theso suggestions nro submitted
for your consideration.
The governor dwells ut length on the
Importance of a perfect system of enumeration
for school purposes in larger
Ono of tho most deplornblo defects In
our common school system Is tho shortness
of the term. In ...o rural districts
children seldom havo an opportunity to
attend school longer than ttvo months
enrh venr. This fact seriously cripple
the efficiency of tho schools. Teachers
ran 111 afford to prepare for their work; In
fact, can not. mnke teaching n profession
a system that gives them employment
for onlv five months out of 12. It
Is not probable that the school fund will

t To this end, 1 recommend that the

Tho expenses ot tho Knstern asylum for
tho fiscal year ending September "0. 1890,
exceeded its Income by $2,CS2.30. This deficit
wns caused by expending considerable
money lor repairs of buildings. Tho

asylum, covering tho period from October

that that Institution lived within Its Income

HOUSES Of REFORM.
In 1S06 an net was passed appropriating
$100,000 tor tho purpose of purchasing a
silo nnd erecting houses of reform, whero
Juvenile offenders might bo confined. For
110 years this class ot prisoners had been
Incarcerated with old and hardened criminals.
This is no longer tho case. Tho
commissioners appointed by tho governor,
under tho provisions of tho net. purchased
a site near Lexington, Ky nnd havo part
ly compieicu mo imumngs, nun w prisoners
hnvo already been conveyed to that
The nnproprlatlon has been nearly exhausted
r.nrt the necessary buildings not
completed. An additional appropriation
will bo asked for In tho report of the
trustees. This Is a matter that demands
your serious attention,
Tho board of prison commissioners will
doubtless lay before you their report as
to tho operation of tho two penitentiaries
for tho loot year. Theso rcportn
are not likely to balauco with tho auditor's
books with refcrenco to tho expenditures,
becuuso the actual expenditures
by tho stato for these Institutions nro
larger than those shown by tho
warden's reports, tho salaries and tho
of tho commissioners not appearing
In tho wardens' books. Tho penitentiaries
huvo been under tho control of
tho new management 18 mouths.
Into account, as wo must, tho invoices

ot this facti This evil demands tho most
jerlous attention of your body, Tne re-Cent
OccUirenco ih Mason county Ib so
shocking and revolting that It emphasizes
the necessity for effective legislation to
prevent Its repetition in tr.o inline. The
present law provides sufficient punish
ment for such offenders as these, but
tho sentiment lu communities where theso
things occur, seems to either oveinwo the
oll'cers who lira charged with the
' tlon of the law or elso enlist their sym-
' pathles lu favor of the violations. Hence,
It is apparent mat it tnese evil-doers
lire to be brought to justice, It must be
by giving courts removed from tho scene
of the crime Jurisdiction, and authorizing
the selection of special prosecutors
who are Independent of local Influences.
Although all efforts to punish thiti character
of crirrlo have hitherto proved futile,
'et our efforts should not relax, until
fomc sufficient remody Is devised to
prevent Its commission,
Tho penitentiary at Frankfort is great

Much complaint comes from the lurgcr
cltlou of our state becauso of tho fact,
that under tho constitution they nro practically
denied local self-government concerning
municipal tnxatlon. It Is earnestly
Insisted that this fact great!)
retards tho growth of theso cities.
Tho local tax rnto on all manufacturing
Industries In I.oUIbvIIIo for 1S90 was
$1.81 (in tlio $100. It Is at onco apparent
thnt capital when seeking investment
will go whero Its burden will be lightest
and Whero the greatest advantages are
offorded. Hence, millions of wealth are
belnir diverted from our own stnto nnd
cities to that of olir rivals. It does
seem that the cities should bo allowed to
tc dilate their municipal taxation nnd
mako such laws ns will suit their oh
leciil Interest. It can not possibly barn;
the rest of tho stute. ' ,
For theso reasons It Is recomnien.lrll
that your honorablo body again bring
ttls matter before tho peoplo by
to them nn amendment tn the
constitution nllowtng cities of such clashes
as yoil may deem proper tho right to
regulate the question of municipal
The public buildings of n state ns certainly
lmlicute its financial standing and
peblfc thrift as do private bullatngs reveals
tho thrift anil enterprise of communities.
For many years tho reputation
of Kentucky hns suffered, "because'
ot the character of Its stato buildings.
The structures which sufficed a quarter
of a century ago do not suffice for tho
present. Tho whole country Is moving
forwnrd, and everywhere about us our
s.slcr states are keeping step In the
of progress nnd prosperity. There is
scarcely a stato in tho union thnt does
not possess handsomer and more commodious
cupltol buildings than our own.
This Is true, notwithstanding tho fact
that many of these states rank far below
us In points of wealth and Intelligence.
Heretofore tho Impoverished condition
of our public treasury has blocked
nil effortB to provide for the erection
of a new cnpltol. It was but natural that
ctr peoplo wero loth to increase their
ii.debtednesa to gratify their stnto pride.
Put now our financial conditions,
so materially Improved, tho old
can no longer bo effectively
It Is believed that by the continued practice
of economy In the various departments
of state, the revenues collected
f'om the present tax rato will bo
to defray tho current expenditures
o.' tho state and leave a, small Burplus
each year, besides. Therefore, a small
portion of our. future revenues could
be set npnrt to tho accumulation of n
fund for tho building of a capltol which
would honor our stnte and become tho
pride of our pcoplp. Eight hundred thousand
dollars would, doubtless, be amnio
therefor, and this sum could bo provided
for In four years, by setting aside .1
cents of the annual tax rato of 1714 cents
for that purpose. I would therefore
that you take such steps along these
Pnes ns shall shortly bring about the consummation
of this mos.t worthy enterprise.
Much confusion has resulted from a
decision of tho court of appeals, construing
the law authorizing counties to
vote upoti tho question of local option.
It hns been held that under the present
statute after the county has voted to prohibit
the salo of spirituous liquors, nnv
subdivision thereof can by a subsequent
anil Independent vote abrogate the veto
of tho county, so far as the local municipality
Is concerned. Under this
tho peoplo of the county as .1
whole nro practically denied tho right of
determining this Important question.
Immediate legislation is therefore
Trusting that your work mav ba of the
