Judge Kennedy The law, seems to b a

there are too many candidates to be voted
on. If the delegates were elected In each
precinct Instead of at large the number
to be voted on would be amall enough to
do away with the objectionable features.
I think there should also be provision made
for the expression of preference for can

to the direct primary Idea. If the direct
primary were state wide there would bo
no need of a convention and hence no
necessity for electing delegates.

LEGISLATION OF FAR-REACHING EFFECT
Hon. Jki I. Kennedy Talks on tho
Resnlts of Congressional Wsrk
Mnny Important Bills'
Congressman John JL Kennedy Is back
from Washington,, asM while he Is pretty
well tired out by th strenuous labors of
the session f congreis, speaks enthusiasti
cally of the results adcomplleheri. He said:
'The first. 'session of the Flfry-nlnth con
gress will prove to bj the most Important
Id the history of the country since the
civil war. - This is particularly true because
the measures enacted Into law are mostly
constructive In character and will
strengthen our Institutions and laws and
develop our trade.
"The railroad leglslatlan would of Itself
make the session memorable". "It la a
gr't step forward-In the regulation and
control of ,'oommon carriers. The people
have clxnplnlned. ncrt'RQ much of excessive
rates, as of unfair discriminations. The
new lnw will In large measure correct these
evils. Tile discussions on the bill make
It perfectly plain that It Is the Intention
to perfect the law still further If necessary
and that In the meantime Its provisions
must lie carried Into effect without fear or
'Btntchood has been granted to Okla

left to Arlxona and New Mexico to say
whether or not they ' shall be admitted

RKalnM Joint statehood that will end It
for years to come. The new state of Okla
homa will come In with a large, energetic
and enthusiastic, . i-lllzenship and It has
a great future Jx-fore It.
The removal of the tax on denatured
alcohol means a grrn deal to the mechanic
arts and much, very 'much, to the farmers.
It can be.msdc from almost nil kinds of
farm products, and If It will acompllsh one-

relegate the lll-ainelling gasoline to the

"The, pure food law will be a godsend
to the people. The Investigation made In
ttwy house established the fact that many
of. the most common articles of food and
irlnk are adulterated and are sold by short
weight-or measures. I'nder the n 'lw
Consumers w-ni know what they eat or drink
and huw much thoy'-get of It for their
money,' . .
"Tho mest' Inspection measure Is In
class by Itself and will have far-reaching
consequences. Tlr public agitation of the
subject did g-eat Injury to the trade and
Is to be regretted. The ultimate effect,
however, will be a benefit to the entire
country. The testimony taken before the
agricultural committee of the house did
not disclose that diseased meats were be
ing canned or sold, but .that in some casea
the aanltary conditions were Imperfect. A
permanent annual' appropriation of $3,000,000
was made to cover the cost of Inspection,
thus distributing the burden equitably upon
all the people. "' To shave done otherwise
would have been' ts tax the west and the

"The new naturalization law will make
uniform throughout the United Btatea all

lEed citizen the protection of the govern

"The settlement of the type of the Isth
mian canal was of vital importance. The
sea level plan would have entailed an ex
pense of $230,000,000 or mors, and under that
plan twenty years at least would have bean
required for Its construction. The lock type

I take It for granted that our duty to
the socalled Inferior races Is not discharged
by merely feeding them In times of famine
of by oontiibutlng to their temporary sup
port when some other calamity overtakes
them. A much greater assistance Is rend,
ered them when they are led to a more
clevHtcJ plane of thoueht and activity by
Ideals which stimulate them tn self-develop,
ment. The Improvement of ths people
themselves should be the paramount object
In all Intercourse with the orient.
Among the blessings which the Christian
nntluna are at thla time able and In duty
bound to carry to the rest of the world I
tuny mention five, education, knowledge of
the science of government, arbitration as
a substitute for war, appreciation of the
dignity of labor and a high conception of
F.d oration necessary.

have the United States and England been
more clearly helped than In the advocacy
of universal education. If the designs of

disputable proof that the Almighty never
Intended tlwt learning should be monopo

not a true one, that countenances the per
manent separation or society mio iwo Dis
tinct classes, the one encouraged to lin

To hopeless Ignorance. Equally false Is
that eoiicculion of International politics
which would make the prosperity of one

The English langtiaae has lwmi ths
vehicle for the conveyance of governnientAl
truth, even more than for the ssread of
general Information, for, beginning with
Magna Charier and continuing through the
era of the American . revolution and ths
Declaration of Independence down to the
present, no language lies been so mu-'h
employed fr the propagation of that
theory of government which trsces gov
ernmental authority to the consent of the
governed. Our own nation presents the
mnst illustrious example known to history
of a great population working out Its des
tiny through laws of its own making and
under offlcisls of Its own choosing, al
though, 1 nisy ssv, we scarcely go beyond
Knglsnd in recognizing the omnipotence of
a parliament fresh from the people. It is

An Idea will sometimes revolutionize an
Individual, a community, a state, a nation
or even a world, and the luea that man
possesses Inalienable rights which the state
UIU not give and which the etate, though
It can deny, cannot take away, has niuue
millions of human lieinga stand erect and
claim their, tlod-glven inheritance. While
the era of constitutional liberty Is ever
widening, while the tyianny and lnuce
of arbitrary power are every year decreas
ing, the leadnrs of the world's thought,
not only the English shaking nations, hut
the other Christian nations as well, have
jet much to do In teaching reverence lor
the will of the majority and respect for
the public servanta, upon Wliom the people
The Christian nations must lead the move
ment for Ihe promotion of peace, not only
localise thy are enlisted under the ban
ner of the Prince of Peace, but also be
cause they have attained sch a degree of
intelligence that they can no longer take
pride In a purely physical victory. Thj
belief that moral questions can be settled
by the shedding of human blood la a rrllc
of barbarism; to doubt the dynamic power
of righteousness Is infidelity to truth Itself.
That nation which I unwilling to trust Its
cause to the universal conscience or which
shrinks from the presentation of lta clulms
before a tribunal where r.'ason holds sway
betrays a lack of fulth In the soundness of
Its position, tmr country hns resson to
congratulate Itself on the success of Presi
dent Roosevelt In hastening peacfl between
Russia and Jupnn. Through film otir nation
won a moral victory more plorlous than a
victory In wnr. King Edward hns also
shown himself a promoter of arbitration
and a large number of the members of
Parliament are enlisted In the same work.
It menus much that the two groat English
speaking nations are thus arrayed on the
Side of peace. 1 Venture to suggest that the
world's peace would be greatly promoted
by nn agreement among the leading nations
that no declnratlon of wnr should be made
until the submission of the question in con
troversy to an Impartial court for Investi
gation, eaoh nation reserving the right to
accept or reject the decision. The prelim
inary Investigation would In nlmost every
instance Insure an amicable settlement, and
the reserved right would ho a sufUclont
protection against any possible Injustice.
Dignity of ljbor.
Iet me go a step farther and appeal for
clearer recognition of the dignity of la
bor. The odium Which rests upon the work
of tho hand has exerted a baneful Influ
ence the world around. The theory that
Idleness Is more honorublo than toil that
it Is more respectable to consume what
Others have produced than to be a producer
of wealth has not only robbed society of
an enormous sum, but It has created an al
most Impassable gulf between the leisure
classes and those who support them. Tol
stoy Is right in asserting tliafmost of the
perplexing problems of society grow out of
tne lacK or eympainy peiween man nu
man. Because some Imagine themselvis
buve work, while others ses netore uiom
nothing but a life of drudgery, there Is con
stant warring and much of bitterness.

ir It Is legitimate to "seeg anotner s
profit" and "to work another's gain" how
can this service best be rendered? This
has been the disputed point. Individuals
and nations have differed less about ths
purpose to be accomplished than about
the methods to be employed. Pereecutlona
have been carried on avowedly for the
benefit ot the persecuted, ware have been
waged for the alleged Improvement of
thoae attacked, and still more frequently
philanthropy has been adulterated with sel
fish Interests. If the superior natlona have

not to caat down but to lilt up, and the
means must be example a far mote pow

Example may be likened to the sun whose
genial rays constantly coax the burled
seed Into life and clothe the earth, first
with verdure and afterward with ripened
grain, while violence Is the occasional tem
pest which can ruin but cannot give life.
