There is a department of farm markets with its separate administrative office and of fice machinery.

DEPARTMENT OF LABOR. A department of labor was provided^ constitution under the désigna "bureau of immigration, labor >f It is unfortunate that department of labor neglected and that tire de in our tion of and statistics. its function as a has been partuient itself was permitted to be come tu' little importance that my predecessor refused to appoint its bead. The problems affecting labor which are properly a matter of state concern re tpiire that this department be rehabi litated.^! so To it properly belong the work of mine inspection and also safety in spection in co operation wdth the in dustrial accident board. Permit me to add here that in my judgment the present schedule of compensation in the workmen s compensation law is in many instances not adequate to protect the workman and should bo increased.

The necessities of a great crisis have taught us that those who ore called upon for the time being to exercise the sovereignty of a nation or state must necessarily possess groat power in the execution of those policies that are determined to be for the general welfare. The distinction be tween an autocracy and a democracy is not in the extent of their executive pow ers, but the distinction lies in this: That those powers are exercised in a demo cracy by the consent of the governed and the policies to be executed are de termined by and.in the interest of the governed and not of the governor. The autocrat has no sense of responsibility to other than himself or his class. The The war has ex Too often have our laws ruler of a republic executes a trustee ship for the general welfare. Power in the hands of a public official is danger ous only when exercised in a sinister or irresponsible manner. No man who is vested with responsibility who must per form his acts in the limelight of publi city and give an accounting within a relatively short period, can long con tinue to be a radical. In a state such as ours, ho must necessarily act con servatively or he will not be permitted to continue in office.
