Missouri Governor in Address
to Kentucky Lawyers Airs
Views on Statutes.
Covington, Ky , June 24. 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
"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
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should be repealed, not Ignored.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

the Modern Woodmen. Col. C. A.
McCollo, of Minneapolis, surgeon
general of the hospital corps, said:
'I have ordered he men not to
drink the lake water. It is very poor
and is responsible tor the number of
cases we have had thus far. We hare
had it analyzed for the past two
weeks. At times It Is clear enough,
but these southeast winds have forc
ed the impurities through the break
water, and the result Is bad. You
people will have to spend about f 3,-

the dangers that now confront you
with your sewage rivers."
Typhoid Is feared, as there were
scores of the cases during a similar
disturbance of the lake a mouth ago.

ship of Dowager An.
IK'S Moines, la., June 24. "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
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
"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
"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

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.
