In an address to the members to the Ken tucky State Bar Association, in kck s!on here, Gov. Joseph W. Folk, of Missouri, defended his action in rigid ly enforcing the Missouri statutes, especially those relating to Sunday closing and racetrack gambling. He said in part: "The reign of law means the rule of the people, for a majority of th peo ple make the laws. Tbey register their will crysiallzed in the form ol statutes. We need a revival ol the rule of the people. Four years ago the laws agaiust bribery In all of the states were considered as practically a dead letter. L'p to that time, for the 50 years preceding, there had only been about 34 eases of bribery reported In all the United States. When the prosecutions were coin menced In St. Louis the members of the House of Delegates denounced the bribery law as a 'blue law' and as a 'dead law' because It had not been enforced before. "The gambling laws In many places are permitted to be disregarded and the laws regulating dramshops nulll fled. When one enforces this law, be cause It is the law, the same cry is made about 'blue laws' and 'dead laws.' It Is a law in the Interest of good government to stop the enor mous amount of crime that comes out of the dramshop on Sunday and election days. It is no more an Interference with lberty than the law against gambl lng or other laws In the nature of police regulations which restrict the rights of one man when they inter fere with the rights of another. "The only safe rule is, that if a law is on the statute books it must be observed. If a law Is objectionable it should be repealed, not Ignored. "We do not need new laws so much as enforcement of the laws we have. There has been too much tampering with the laws in an effort to correct wrongs that do not arise from the infirmity of the laws, but rather from the feebleness of their execution. An Imperfect law well administered Is ft preferable to a perfect law badly car ried out." harges Alienation And Asks $25,000, Belolt, Kan., June 24. An action has been commenced in the district court here by W. F. Smith, a stot dealer, against Mrs. Jennie it Bolton his motner-in-law, for $23,000 damages fur alienHtiDgtheaffections of the plaintiffs wife.

"It ia perfectly absurd to imagine that I could in my positio convert the Empress Dowager to any religion." Thus spoke Mrs. E. Li. Conger, wife of Minister Conger, formerly of China, but now of Mexico. Mrs. Conger has arrived at Des Moines and the above statement was called forth by a query as to the report ttiat under her miutstratiouB the Empress Do wager lias been led to embrace Chrintlan Science. Mrs. Conger says that the mission aries are doing great work in China, but for the wife of a diplomat to undertake tasks supposed to tJelong exclusively to the missionaries would lie ngurded by Chinese otticials as unbecoming and would at once dis count their influence for good. While attempting to urge her own religious views on the Empress, Mrs. Conger did succeed in winning her lasting friendship. "The laet audience was one of the saddt-Mt partings I ever experienced, nlie seemed so sincere In her friend ship," said Mrs. Conger. "After I had bowed myself out she called me back and gave me this jewel, and through her interpreter told me she wanted it to go with me through all my journeys, and that it would pro tect me from nil harm. We. were, both overcome and I withdrew silently. "Since coming to Amerlcu I have written to her of my safe arrival and the guarding presence of the jewel. It i a wonder to me she does not want It back, as it has been cherished by Chinese rulers for centuries back." The charm is a curious shaped am tier Htone. hunir to a hearr-r.nrrl with silk tassels. . Mrs. Conger says that at first she had a prejudice against being entertained by the Emprees Dowager and especially against eating the food prepared for her, but soon overcame both. She is firm in the belief that the Boxer troubles are at an end. Jerome and Lawson to Talk. Kansas City, Mo., June 24.
