"For several years my husband
was a missionary in the Southwest.
Every one in that high and dry at
mosphere has more or less trouble
with dandruff and my daughter's scalp
became so encrusted with it that I
was alarmed for fear she would lose
all her hair. After trying various rem
edies, in desperation I bought a cake
of Cuticura Soap and a box of Cuti
cura Ointment. They left the scalp
beautifully clean and free from
dandruff, and I am happy to say that
the Cuticura Remedies were a, com

GOV. VESSEY'S INAUGURAL
The New Executive Addresses the Legislature—
Economy in Appropriations Is Strongly
Urged by the Governor.
The affuirs of our penal and char
itable institutions have been ably anu
honestly administered. The money ex
pended in enlarging and improving
them has been utilizer] to the fullest
extent, and with the best possible re
sults. With our advance along all lines
of modern thought and a clearer ap
preciation of the brotherhood of man.
reformative purpose in dealing with
nave come, of necessity, new ideas as
to our treatment of those whom cir
cumstances have brought under the
:liscipline of our penal laws. The old
punitive idea has been largely out
grown and in its place has come the
this class. Our laws are adapted to
the old conditions and do not give suf
ficient opportunity for the exercise of
the best influences in this direction. I
recommend that you give careful at
tention to the subject of the Indeter
minate sentence, and the use of parole
!n dealing with our convicted criminals,
for the purpose of adapting their use
fully to our laws and the present con
dition of the state penal institutions.
The governor says that the free and
liberal support of our educational In
stitutions is the highest duty of patri
otism. and urges a continuance of the
wise and liberal policies of the past, a
:areful husbanding of their endowment,
and ample provision for their growing
The need of careful economy in the
administration of state affairs is
pointed out and the retiring governor's
recommendations In this connection are
The governor recommends the enact
ment of a law providing for the desig
nation of depositories of state funds
and the payment to the state of Inter
est on the daily balances In such de
positories. The regulations governing
such depositories should be uniform
and open on equal terms to all the
banks of the state, and no bank out
side of the state should be eligible to
selection. The funds should be scat
tered among as large a number of
banks as is compatible with their
safety and the efficient administration
of the treasurer's office. They should
further be carefully safeguarded so
ss to make It Impossible that these de
posits should be directed by personal
influence or political favor.
There is a strong public demand for
the Insurance of greater safety for
,alik deposits. The people are calling
for some action to protect them in this
respect. Our party platform declares
in favor of the insurance of bank de
posits in case of the establishment of
postal savings banks. 1 believe that
a wise measure should be framed by
which it will be made possible that all
bank depositors shall be assured
Our laws should be amended so that
no bank may be allowed to incorporate
with less than J10.000 capital. No
bank should be allowed to invest in its
building and furniture more than 0
per cent of Its capital and surplus. The
amount of money a bank may loan to
Its own officers should be reduced and
carefully restricted If, Indeed, such
loans should not be wholly prohibited.
The primary election law. which had
its flrst test in the past year, has
proved a success and has the approval
of the people. Experience, however,
has shown the possibility of some im
provement in its details. It should
lie revised with a view of eliminating
as far as possible whatever of un
necessary expense Is connected with
The office of immigration commis
sioner, created by the last legislature,
has done much good and its creation
has been amply justified. This office,
however, has too much work placed
upon It. It should be a department
by itself, and the work of the secre
tary of the board of agriculture
should be separated from it. There
Is a large field of usefulness for this
office as yet unfilled, and every ad
vantage should be given to It to fulfill
Its appointed work. For years we
have done nothing to advertise to the
landseekers of the East the splendid
onportunities that lie within our bor
ders. The use of proper advertising
in showing these conditions to the
buyers and Investors of the East will
add millions of dollars to the value of
the lands and mines of the state, in
crease the revenue derived from taxes
upon them, and abundantly justify the
expenditure mad? to advertise them.
One of the best forces for advertise
ment of our resources has been in the
state fair at Huron. This has grown
by leaps and bounds. Last year was
the most successful in its 1"/story. Am
ple provision should be made for its
Tiie farmers' institutes held through
out the stale have been very ably con
ducted and the source of much good.
I recommend that the appropriation for
the institute be somewhat increased
and every measure used which will in
crease their influence.
The rapid development to the coun
try and the fencing of hitherto open
tracts have recently given vital impor
tance. especially to our farming popu
lation, to the question of good roads.
Under our present system the respon
sibility is divided and the general char
acter of the work done upon the roads
so inefficient that a change seems im
perative. I recommend that road taxes
be required to be paid in cash that
the office of township road supervisor
be abolished, and the office of countv
road supervisor created. This officer
should be appointed by the board of
county commissioners in each county
and should have authority, outside of
Incorporated towns, over all the roads
in the county for which he is chosen.
The question of the proper regulation
of trusts is one of the most vexatious
problems now confronting the state
ind national government. At this time
I urn? upon you the enactment of a
law prohibiting, under severe penalties,
the sa'.e of a commodity by a corpora
tion in one part of the state cheaper
than in another part, cost of trans
portation being taken into considera
tion. Further, Industrial corporations
should be prohibited from owning
stock in other corporations, and we
should authorize the filing of quo war
ranto proceedings to dissolve any cor
poration, tiie majority of whose stock
is thus acquired by a holding company.
I recommend an entire revision of
our insurance code and the enactment
of a new code, modeled, so far as our
conditions permit, upon the codes of
Massachusetts, Colorado or Connecti
The Insurance commissioner should
be given more definite power to ex
clude from the state such unsound
companies as are not up to our stand
ard of safety.
Our party stands pledged to the
passage, as you have noticed by the
governor's message that the railroad
commissioners have materially re
duced the freight rates west of the
river. We urge the continued super
vision and watchfulness in regard to
these rates, so that the farm, the fac
tory and the mine In the western part
of the state are able to send their
product to all parts of the state at a
reasonable freight rate.
Our scattered population and the ab
sence of large cities, has heretofore
left us free from a crime which has
begun to make its appearance. 1
alluae to the crime procuring young
girls for Immoral purposes. For this
crime against the foundation of society,
I recommend that you provide the most
drastic penalties. The penalty should
not be less than twenty-five years in
the penitentiary, with corresponding
penalties for ail accessories. In thli
connection, I would recommend that
the penalties for keeping houses of
prostitution should be greatlv in

of legal consent are found in such
places, that the minimum sentence for
this crime be ten years in the peni
