of amendments. It has been steadily believed
by the lilcnds of Impure nnd Imitation but
ter that the bill can bo amended to
death. Falluio to accomplish this In
the house will not dlscomago the

governor spoke In legard to the confirming
power of senates , both state and national , as
follows : " 1 have thought long and deeply
on the whole question , l have considered It
ap.ut from any collision between invsclf and
the senate ot the state , but not without con-
sldeiatlon of the pictcnstons of the federal
senate In the action against Cleveland and
other presidents. The time has come for a
thorough , sweeping and radical leiorm. Tlio
ollgaichy and ailstociacy In our national
system tuo icprcsented by the senate ot thu
United States. The obstacle to homogeneous
and icsponslble adiulnlstiatlon inourstato
sjBtcm Is the senate of each state. In both
tlio cause of tlio Intoleiablo senatorial pic-
tension icsldos In the confirming pov\er. The
remedy Is the Immediate and total abolition
of the continuing power. The substitute for
It. should be illicet executive nppoutmont ! ,
with the full light In the executive toiemove
foi cause at will those w bom ho appoints. The
senate , national or state , has novel been an
inteivcner except with bad losults. Tliu
dntv ot the executive Is adminisliative. Thcv
should have the right to appoint and remove
their agents In the admlnistiatlon. Thu busi
ness of the senate Is p.uliclp.itlon In legisla
tion. Thev should be ticeto attend to it.
Now they claim In cITett to be assistant presi
dents and assistant goveinois , and seek to
make elected piesldents and elected govern-
01 s subject to them. The presidents aio chosen
by the people indiiectly but ically. The
ledeial scnatois aio chosen by subsidiary
elections In tlio state legislatuits. benatois
tire not amenable to public opinion , for it
cannot icach them. They use the continuing
power to abuse it , to sticngthcn , and at
times , to cniich themselves in tliat s.itlio on
all fice and lesponsiblo governments known
as socictsessions a menace and abomina
tion to decouci and llbeity. On tlio ruins of
tliccouiteay of the senate let us build tliu
lights ot the people , and crown them with
thepiluclplc ot fiocdom and icsponslbllllv
of iho executive w liom they elect to do thcii
will , and who should have the powei to do It
