A Natchez, Miss., news item fol
lows: "Don't kiss me. I don't like
it, and you may have germs. Try
someone who likes. Baby." One
hundred Natchez babies are joining
the noble army of those who are
protected by the tag which reads
like the above. This idea originated
at Columbus a few weeks ago and
has gone across the continent even
to staid and copservativo Boston,
where they took up the plan gladly
and published accounts of what Mis
sissippi has done and adapted It to
the children of Boston. A special
committee of the tuberculosis exhi
bition is enrolling the babies who'
are enlisted in the one hundred.

havo been doing. You are yourselves '
to blame. You havo built up a sys
tem of enacting legislation that is
too complex for any average mind to
follow. There is no leader created
by law. Diverse committees and
diverse methods so cover up the
progress of bills that no one can tell
why they go to certain committees,
what is done with them there, why
they linger In those committees,
and what power brings them forth or
bids them stay. If there is no power
within a legislature which can hold
the body together you may be sure
some power will arise without the
"Under the system you have de
veloped you do not have time to
nominate your own candidates for
office and at the same time make a
living. You let others do that for
you. It thus becomes easy for a
coterie of persons to control nomi
nations, and what is easier than that
these same influences shall say after
wards what these delegated repre
sentatives shall do and say. The ini
tiative and referendum, or the taking
back by the people of the power to
control to themselves Is a step in the
right direction .but it will not cure
the evils". The people must simplify
the processes of legislation and must
then take charge themselves. This,
must be done state at a' time, each
state taking its own. way about iy
" Dr. Wilson admitted that he had
said many unkind things about the
republican patty, but he did not
mean the large dlass Of respectable
republicans but rather the leaders of
the party who have fooled this large
and respectable class. He had heard
insurgent republicans dubbed by the
standpatters as "boxer" republicans.
He considered it u good. hame and
wanted to say that the "boxer" bands
were raising the dickens all over the
country and would in his opinion
continue in a -rising degree to do so.
Continuing, the governor said:
"Nothing is more noticeable than
the revival in very recent years (one
might almost say in recent months)
of the energy and activity1 of our
state governments. It seems a very
little while ago that men were dis
cussing everywhere the danger that
our state governments might lose
their initiative, fall hopelessly into
the background, give their powers"
over to the federal government and
find their relations altered almost
beyond recognition aB compared with
the older order of things In America.
But we no longer hear predictions
and criticisms of that sort. The lead
ing states of the country have now
bestirred themselves and are showing
an extraordinary activity in the field
of thoughtful and systematic reform.
NOT REVIVING STATES' RIGHTS
"The variety of America is-euch, the
differences between one part of the
country and another are so clearly
marked in respect to the industry
and all other elements of life that
the states are clearly an indispen
sable instrument of its life. Vary
ing conditions must be met In dif
ferent ways in different parts of the
country, and our system of states
gives to our legal arrangement an
elasticity, an adaptability, an ease
of change and accommodation, which
is invaluable and indispensable in so
large a country, bestirring itself in
so many different wayB, in some many
different latitudes and with so great
a variety of purpose. When we dis
cuss the powers of tho states, there
fore, in oiir day we are not reviving
the old academic question of "state
rights." We are beginning to look
upon the rights of individuals. We
are not so much emphasizing the sel
fish and independent powers involved
as tho duties which are manifestly
correlative to the rights. The legal
