ono , of the moHt interesting
IN speeches of the session Senator
George Sutherland of Utnh ( loiilt
with thu present Uny drift toward
newfangled expcrimenUi In govern-
raont , represented liy the BO called Ore-
fion ideas , and ndmlnlHtcred a drub
bing to Senator Jonathan Ilournc , Jr. ,
of that Htuto , president of the I'rogres-
alvo Republican league.
"Within the lust few years , " said the
Dtah nunntor , "tho United States of
'America has become the field of opera
tion for an amiable band of Insurgent
rioothsaycrs , who have been going up
and down the land indulging In cabalis
tic uttcrunccfi respecting the initiative ,
referendum and recall and divers and
sundry other Ingenious devices for re-
tillzlnR the millennium by the ready
nnd simple method of voting It out of
lt present state of incubation. They
direct our attention to the clouds flyIng -
Ing above the far western horizon upon
which the naming finger of the Oregon
gen nun has traced in radiant and
opalescent tints glowing pathways ,
whining minarets , stately temples and
castles and palaces , pinnacles of gold
mid caves of purple , and they tell us
that these are the visible signs which
mark the exact location of the new
mid improved political Jerusalem ,
where the wicked olllco holders cease
from troubling and the weary voters
do all the work.
"They bid us Join them in an airy
pilgrimage to this scene of pure delight
and assure us that here , high nbovo
selfish and mundane things , is the land
'flowing with milk and honey , ' where
every bird Is a songster , where the ex
quisite flowers of political purity are
In perpetual bloom , where 'every pros
pect pleases' and only the standpatter
4s vile , where all the laws are perfect
nnd corruption and wickedness nro for
"A good many people , " Senator Suth
erland added , "are accepting the invi
tation without taking the precaution
to secure return tickets. "
Calls Them Balloonatics.
Senator Sutherland described the ad
vocates of these newfangled ideas also
as "balloonntlcs , " who are carrying all
gns and no ballast. Senator Suther
land's speech was aimed chiefly nt the
Arizona constitution , although he also
Included the New Mexico constitution
within his condemnation. He acknowl
edged that It was not fashionable to
llml fault with the political fads
which arc being Intempcnitely advo
cated under the claim of restoring gov
ernment by the people.
"Any one , " sold ho , "who doubts the
wisdom of the Initiative nnd referen
dum , the recall or the direct primary
Is at once set down by certain self
constituted guardians of the people's
rights as a 'reactionary * or a 'standpat
ter , ' and only those who accept the
whole programme from prologue to
epilogue nro considered worthy to be
"Somebody 1ms defined a standpat
ter as a man who has stopped and
cannot start , nnd a progressive as one
who has started and cannot stop. 11
these definitions are to be accepted ne
accurate sensible people will avoid
both schools. "
Country's Sanity In Danger.
Senator Sutherland declared that be
tween the political quack who thlnkt
only of himself and the political zealot
who does not think at all the country
is in grave danger of having all UK
stability and sanity ground out of 1U
"We are living in strenuous dayu , "
Bald Senator Sutherland. "Every
tody seems to be affected in one fora
or another with the npeod mania. T <
do everything more quickly , to trave
faster nnd faster Is the growing obses
lon of the times , and we are cagerlj
-looking forward to the day when w <
Hhall fly through the air without th <
encumbrance of n gasoline tank , draw
Ing propulsive power ns we go fron
tlio electric waves which fill the unl
verso with the mysterious energy o :
their rise and fall.
Too Many New Fads.
"It is not strange that in the unl
vcrsal fever of haste government itsel :
should be swept by this mad spirit o
Impatience , which has given rise t <
the now apostle of reform , whoso de
mand Is that wo shall ' abandon tb <
methodical habits of the past and gi
careering after novel and untrlei
things. The speed limit has been tak
en off , the 'Stop , Look and Listen
Hlgns removed , nnd the lmportunnt <
cry is , 'Full speed ahead , get some
where else than where you are It matters
tors not where only in God's name le
it bo quickly.1"
Senator Sutherland declared that th
aow fads in government were to
many even to count. Every self cor
Btltutcd reformer was bringing n fc
vortto patch to the quilting bee , am
when the work was finally complete
our scheme of government , be predict
ed , would be us bizarre ns the ol
fashioned quilt that grandmother use.
"It Is high time , " said Senator Butt
crland , "for n reaction to that anclen
but discredited common sense whic
thinks before it acts Instead of n
pontlng afterward. "
Probably the address to which yc
will eoon be having your mail forwan
cd Is to he found in some one of tt
furnished room ads today.
IJOUIINB later replied
to the address of Senator Suth
erland. Among other things ,
ho said :
"I believe in truly representative
government * not a pure democracy ,
but under the political system which
has been built up government Is not
truly representative and will not bo
until the people have power tonnuko
it BO. The Initiative and referendum
Htipersedo no state legislature ; they
merely provide the people a means of
securing laws which legislatures re
fuse to enact and of defeating untie-
elred laws which legislatures do en
"Senator Sutherland says that 'when'
ever our present form of representa
tive government proves ineffective 01
works badly the fault is not with UK
machine , but wiUi those who are op
erating it ; the remedy is for the people
ple to exercise more care in selecting
operaUng agents. ' The people have
long tried this remedy ; now they wll
try changing the machinery by pro
vldlng n few new lovers , drive wheeh
and brakes. The most important dlf
ferenco between the views of Scnatoi
Sutherland and my own Is clear. He
believes the machine is all right , bin
the fault lies with the people. I bo
llevo the people are nil right , but th <
fault lies with the machine.
Believes In Direct Primaries.
"I believe in a direct primary , in
eluding n popular expression of cholc <
for presidential and vice presldentla
candidates. Any man who was competent
potent to chose between Mr. Taft am
Mr. Bryan In the last election is competent
potent to chose between Mr. Taft am
Mr. La Follette In the coming prhnu
rlcs. By adoption of this system po
lltlcal bosses , backed by campalgi
contributors , will bo deprived of tin
power to select candidates , and thu
presidents will be relieved of that em
barrassing obligation which the noml
IHHJ must feel toward those who havi
placed him in ofllce.
Popular government contemplate
that all voters shall participate. Thi
technical work of drafting a measur
should be performed by men of skll
In that particular , but the people a
n whole are the best judges of th
principles Involved and can bo trustei
to pass upon the merits. The welfnr
of states Is safe from injury at th
hands of men who .have never gou
beyond thd multiplication table. Th
chief attention of congress in reccu
years has been devoted to efforts t
curb the rapacity of large business ir.
tercsts , to regulate trusts , to centre
railroad rates , to prevent mnnufactur
and sale of injurious food products , t
prohibit corrupt use of money in clec
tions and to simplify court procedur
so that the results of litigation shal
not depend upon which litigant ha
the greatest power of financial cndui
ance. 'Evidently the government ha
more trouble with men who have gen
beyond the problems of Euclid than i
has with men who have stopped wit
the multlpllcaUon table.
"The senator from Utah says ho ft
vors popular election of senators. A
the first election after adoption of th
initiative and referendum in Orego
the people enacted a law under whic
we have chosen three senators by poi
unr vote , the legislature merely raUf :
ing the popular choice. If the senate
really desires to secure popular ele <
Uon of senators in his state be sboul
first secure the pracdcal operation c
the initiative , after which absolute !
nothing can stand in the way of popi
lar election of senators.
"Tho people of Arisona would bett
lose statehood than yteld their right t

The Man Doesn't Change.
"I see no reason why n man wh
occupies a judicial position should t
governed by laws nnd standards c
public service different from thos
which apply to legislative or executlv
officers. Judges are but human. W
sometimes elect legislators to tt
bench , send former Judges to the legli

ethics when he changes his ofllce.
man who is dishonest or Incompetei

as likely be dishonest or Incompetei
in a judicial office. Ho who woul
use his power as an executive in a
improper manner or for an lmprop <
purpose would exercise judicial pow <
in the same way. In any branch <
government he is a servant of tt
people , not their master , and be shoul
be subject to dismissal by the poop
after fair opportunity to bo heard upc
his record. The people elect a Judf
because of anticipated good cervlc
and they would recall him only f <

Since the discovery of the air treat

When it is observed that a cow is
suffering from milk fever her teats
should be thoroughly washed with
Bonp and water and ringed , especially
the ends , with n solution of coal tar
product , ' such ns enoleum , lysol , etc.
A piece of heavy sheeting , which has
been placed In a hot oven for n short
time , should be placed under the udder.
The Instrument used for Inflating tin *
udder with air should be placed in
boiling water for n few minutes. Cnro

ls taken to thoroughly sterilize the
portion of the Instrument that is In
serted in the teat nnd to feecp the teats
from coming In contact with the bed

are thoroughly washed and disinfect
Each quarter of tbe udder should
be Inflated with air , and to keep it In
