Capo Girardeau. Missouri, Friday, Juno 16. 1911.
The Democratic newspapers
and politicians are much exer
cised over the "unconstitution
al" action of Governor Iladley
in refusing to proclaim the
jerrymander prepared by Con.
Roach and Elliott Major. In
view of the fact that their di
vision of the state into Sena
torial districts failed to comply
with the provisions of the con
stitution requiring that the Sen
atorial districts shall be nearly
as equal in population as may
be and compact and contiguous,
the governor declined to pro
claim it as a law. Roach and
Major then announced that they
were going to proclaim it them
selves by publishing it in the
Sess ion Acts. The governor ad
vised them that if they did so
it would be an improper use of
public funds, and that he would
institute suit to prevent it. As
the last thing that these poli
ticians wanted was to have the
Supreme court pass upon the le
gality of their action they have
abandoned their efforts to pro
mulgate this gerrymander, and
now don't know what to do
with it.
It is of no effect until proclaim
ed and they are afraid to pro
claim it because if they do the
governor will take them into
the courts. The time when two
Democratic politicians who hap
j3n to be holding office can di
vide this state into senatorial
districts giving the Democratic
party, which is in the minority
party, twenty four senatorial
districts, has gone by. What
hurts the Democratic newspa
pers and politicians is that they
know this is true.
