MNCOI.N, Deo. 2t.-(8peclal.)-The pub
lication this morning In" a local paper that
Governor Aldrich would 'attempt to pry
JlBrry IJndsoy loose from his position as
clerk of the. supremo court by a recom
mendation in his message to tho legisla
ture that tho offlco be abolished, caused
tho governor to becomo somewhat wroth.
I have a 'notion to deny all newspaper
reporters tho rights of this offlco," he
said. I can't even pull, off a Joko but
what some of them take It seriously and
proceed to write tho thing up. I was
Joking about whut I said, though there
might bo some truth about some of It."
The Incident calls to mind that this Is
not the first Unto that a governor In the
past hus recommended in his message
tho abolishment of somo department or
part of a department.
Governor Savage, In his message to the
legislature la 1K0, recommended that the
office of stato auditor and commissioner
of public lands and buildings should be
abolished and that with the addition of
a few clerks to tho office of tho governor,
secretary of stato and treasurer, tho work
could be done Just as well and many
thousands' of dollars saved annually to
Governor hoyd recommended In hla
nicssago that the stato cauld save money
by cutting off numerous clerks and Idlo
officials, but did not name any particu
lar department or officials that he
thought should be sent out to face the
cold, cruel, world.
Governor Mickey was very strong in
his denunciation of the "lobby" and
urged the legislature to pass such resolu
tions as would do away with the gentle
men who attended sessions of the legls
'aturo in order to convince the members
that they should vote right.
Whether the "proclamation" of the
governor relative to the clerk of the
supreme court had anything to do with
it or.hot, is not evident, but anyhow, the
clerk the deputy and all the attaches
of the- offlco this morning wore earning
