for which there is such a universal de

not have to run the' clock back at this
session to accommodate belated bills,
in the business affairs of life, Import
ant work Is always done first, and this
rule should ha applied to the legis

employed to facilitate a thorough con

and ready to adjourn when the constitu
tional time has been reached.
Matter of Flararea.
It is a simple matter to figure that
It costs the lower house a Jo bill for
ach and every minute it Is In ses
sion. This mearra that every minute
lost is to wasted, - and I believe an i
have always believed, that the speaker,
more than any other man, la In posi
tion to make every minute count while
the house is In session. I have'snen
the presiding officer of the house per
mit a rag-cnewing muicn among gar-
lous members about accepting an In-
allon to some social function for
half an hour thirty minutes at V per
minute when one stroke of the ravel
would have left the matter to be set
tled In another way and saved the neat
sum or luu to the taxpayers. I nave
seen, as we ail have, earnest members
paw the air for one hour at a 16 a min
uteabout some silly sentiment not at
all germalne to the subject, and en
lirely out of order under the rules
another 1300 wasted. And we have all
seen also those patriotic statesmen
who denounce with bitterness the em
ployment of a few additional employes
we have all seen these same states
men march into a committee room, close
their eyes, set their Jaws, and vote for
some worthless cause or custom a sum
large enough to pay all the employes that
1. .-ould be herded into the state house.
Desire Only Good.
In seeking the speakership, I have but
one ambition, and that la to Join my
fellow legislators in an earnest effort to
make good. The democratic party is in
the majority, and the people will iiold
Its leadeis, and its newspapers, who havo
promised a reform program, strictly ac
countable for Its acts, and the record it
makes will go down in history to tile
credit or the discredit of the party in
I repeat my Intention, therefore, to
Join with democrat leaders In an earnest
effort to mske a record of economy and
efficiency which will reflect credit upon
the party and upon the legislature as a
whole. The utmost cars should be exer
cised In making the appropriations, o
that the state's money will be spent to
