"In accordance with the constitution of

a I have gained during my trm of sr

"At present 'the. cojt of . returning- fu
gitives from Justice I paid', out,, of tthe
lata general fund, and I am led to be
lieve that this often leads to arrest and
return of parties at great -j expense to
tha siste, when actual prosecutions do
not follow. I hava learned of Instirtices
"where complaints were filed against men
and after they were brought back at an
expense, of 1:00 or two to tha state, no
prosecutions were made. County officers,
being fsmlllar with all the facts and
circumstances, are better able to de
termine ' whether a requisition ought to
be Issued at public 'expense for the re
turn of a fugitive than the governor ran
possibly be.' 'The' governor Is' bound bj
tha record that IS presented to him. and
when the papers are regular, he has no
alternative bnt to grant tha requisition. I
strongly recommend that the law b so
amended, fnst each county will pay tha
cost of transporting It own prisoners to
tha penitentiary, and the coat of return
ing Its own fugitive from Justice,

Wa now have a statute making It a i
gowny to Introduce morphine, co
rain, ete., Inbs the penitentiary, and th
strict .eaXoroeuent-of thia statute by tha
Present warden ha brought about a
splendid Improvement In th moral of
. that Institution. I am, convinced, how
Aver, that' tha law regulating the sale of
these habit-farming drugs ought to be
more stringent, and that there ought to
"be a rigid inspection of all places dealing
In these hebtt-formtng drugs. To thl
end, I- recommend the passage of an act
which will authorise th food, drug,

tion, of dnig stores, and requiring all
druggists to keep a correct record of th

WASHINGTON, Jin. T.-PeiTcsry ,
Bryn tody Informed fount Bernstorff,
li e German anibnseador, that the I'nlted
States, In mslnlalnlng strict neutrality,
must refrain from oftirtally Inrestlgatlng
or commenting upon his charge that
dumdum bullets were twine furnished
from this country to the allies.
Secretary nryan told the ambassador,
however, that If he could furnish proof
that forbidden war material were being
shipped by American firm Preddcnt ,
Wilaon would use his Influence to stop
the traffic without Involving legal or In
ternational questions.
In a letter to Count Bemstorff, Secre
