Draw Bill to Reaulate

A tentative bill regulating the ma

drafted and approved by the city
health and hospital committee of the
Commercial club. It ha yet to be
endorsed by the executive committee
of this body before an effort will be
made to have it introduced in the

It will extend the 'supervision over
these home over a larger field, giv
ing not only the local health officials
authority over the homes, but placing
them alio subject to the supervision

Governor Morehead's Retiring Message;
Few Suggestions Made to the Legislators;
Some of Existing Laws Need Amendment
After the cnitomarv introductory?
remarks. Governor Morehead referred I
to the public expenditures. He said
that, in spite of the increasing cost of '
living, the state is oat of debt, and baa
a large cash fund in the treasury.
"Our ward are all well housed, well
fed, and their intellectual and moral
development is constantly advanced,"
say the governor, "and at thi time
t see no reason why the expense of
the state should be increased.
Limit Number of Banks,
Under the caption. "The Banking
Department," the message says:
Having been a country banker tor
many years, and now having had four
years experience a chairman of the
banking board, 1 teel that 1 am able
to apeak on thi department The
bank of thi state were never in a
more flourishing condition than today,
but thi very condition ha a tendency
to call into the business those with
out adequate capital and without the
necessary experience in this line of
business. In order to protect the
people of the state against unsafe
banking, the law should be so
amended as to absolutely limit the
number of banks that may be estab
lished, or the banking board ought to
be given discretionary power (if the
courts do not hold that it already ha
the power; to grant or refuse chart
ers. This I regard as a matter of
first importance. If no check can be
put upon the organization of new
banks, they will be organized by un
reliable parties and by getting pro
tection of the Depositors Guaranty
fund, which is provided by the sane
conservative banker, they will draw
deposits to their banks which later
they may loan out on wild cat securi
ties, or invest in fraudulent undertak
ings and when times of depression
come, our whole banking system may
be wrecked.
I have observed that there is a
class of men who may be termed pro
fessional promoters who seek to
organize banks without regard to the'
needs for these institutions, some
times to Mil the institution when
organized, to concerns already doing
business, and at other time merely
to get the commission that may be
made out of the ssle of stock. This
is a pernicious practice and the power
to protect the public against it ought
to be definitely lodged with the bank
ing board. Ur it not with this board,
witb some suitable board or commit
tee that will administer the law with
out fear or favor."
Good Roads tor Nebraska.
On the subiect of good roads. Gov
ernor Morehead argues in favor of
construction of permanent highways.
He says the course will add to the
value of the land of the state as noth
ing else will. He reports on the ex
periment of paving a road between
the penitentiary and the city of Lin
coln, using convict labor, and shows
a considerable saving was effected.
From this be finds full justification
for his advocacy of the use of con
vict tabor in road building. He con
cludes his treatment of the topic thus:
"The use of convict labor upon our
highways il a matter of exceeding in
terest I believe it is better for the
men who are serving time, as well as
more profitable for the state. Road
work and farm work, the manufacture
of brick for pavinj, and the securing
of rock and sand to be used in the
same line of work, are classes of la
bor, in which convict may be em
ployed, V. ; .
"There may be a fear in the mind
of some farmers that the construction
of permanent roads will prove too ex
pensive, but what money is expended
should be put into permanent con
struction and where this is done, I am
sure the enhanced value of the farm
will more than make the difference in
the cost. A system of good roads
will reduce the cost of the delivery
of farm produce and this system ought
to be encouraged while the federal
government is willing to lend its aid
to the enternrise. The experience of
centuries ha demonstrated the value
of permanent roads and shown that
they are a oeneat to now tne country
and the cttv. A large percentage of
the cost, of marketing farm produce
is not due to railroad rates, but to
poor roads between the farm and the
railroad station. In Europe the land
is worth quadruple what better land
in Nebraska is worth, largely because
its road system has reduced the cost
of marketing and made intensive cul
tivation profitable. It is now time that
the progressive tarmer ot NeorssKa
should realize these things and take
advantage of the opportunity to se
cure permanent roads wan a mini
mum expenditure of money. ,
I also call your attention to an
act of congress passed at the Sixty
fourth session, 'An act to provide that
the United States shall aid the states
in the construction of rural post road
and for other purpose.' The act
specific that the legislature before it
nnai sojournment ui hub bcsbiuh, ac
cept of the provisions ot isaid act, in
order to share in its benefits."
Consolidation of Departments.
Governor Morehead refer to the
consolidation of the pure food, drug
and dairy department, with the oil
department, at hi suggestion, and
the success that has resulted there
from. He says that Commissioner
Harman has been hampered by a
"technical construction of the const
tution," but has "progressed with his
work, has taken the department out
of politics, and made it the great
i ' . . . .L . . . M
Business acpsnniem oi tnc naie.
He recommends that the hotel de
partment be placed under the food
department, but, if this cannot be
done, the inspectors of the food,
dairy, oil and drug department be
made also hotel inspectors.
"I also recommend," says the gov
ernor, "that the dairy inspectors be
placed under 'the supervision of the
superintendent of the state dairy
farm, who is an authority on dairy
Printing Commissioner's Power.
Extension , of the powers of the
deputy printing commissioner is rec
ommended, in order that he may
uprrivse the expenditure of all mon
ies for printing and purchase of blank
books and supplies for th several

sioner has the oversight of the ex
penditure of about $-M),000 a year for

Secretary of Pardon Board.
It is recommended that the office
of secretary of the State Board of
Pardons be abolished, and that the
work be turned Over to a steno
grapher, to be located at the peni
tentiary. Through this a saving in
salaries now paid can be made
amounting to $1,100 a year, a sine
cure be abolished, and an assistant
accountant secured for the peniten
tiary, without lessening the efficiency
of the pardon board's service.
Bute Capitol Building.
Dealing with the need -for a new
state house, the message says: i
"You are on the ground ana will
observe the condition of the building
for yourself. The majority of the
Seople of the state will admit that the
uilding is not in keeping witb the
present development of the state.' If
money is to be spent, it should be ex
pended so as to bring permanent re
sults. If a wing is to be built, an
architect ought to be employed to
draw plans for a complete building
and this wing be so constructed that
as the years go on and the needs of
the state require further construction.
other wings may be added until a
complete building is finally erected.
These plans ought to be drawn on
lines that will meet the future de
velopment of the state and a building
ought to be planned which when com
pleted will be a credit to Nebraska.
Realizing the difficulty of getting
money spent in a careful, economical
way, I would suggest that provision
be made for a building committee to
be composed of a number of public
spirited and substantial citizens of the
state, whose integrity is beyond ques
tion, to superintend the expenditure
of the money and to pass on the plans
and specifications when drawn, this
committee to serve without pay, ex
cent actual exoenses. The men com'
prising the Board of Public Lands
and Buildings have so many duties to
perform that they cannot be expected
to give to the construction of this new
wing the time and attention which
the interest of the state demand.
If you see fit to handle tt m this
way, a levy sufficient to build a wing
would not Drove a great burden to the
people. If in your wisdom, you prefer
to provide for an entirely new build
ing, a small levy ongnt to oe maoe to
create a fund, which when strung out
for a number of years, would prove
sufficient for the purpose. Above all,
1 urge Uiat it any building is erected,
it be of a substantial character and
one that will be suitable to meet the
needs of the state for many years to
come, , .'. "
Four-Year Tern for State Officer.

given the matter careful considera
tion and am convinced that it is bet
ter to place the power to make ap-
I pointment for purely administrative
) officer in the bands of the governor,
! or some duly appointed board, than
I to elect haphazard a large number of
i officers to places which do not attract
enough public attention to make them
a real issue in a campaign. No one
I who has witnessed the drift of mod
j era politics can escape the conclusion
that the voters concentrate their at
tention upon a few of the more im
portant offices and, for the most part
they merely vote tbeir party ticket
for the minor places on tne ballot It
would be the part of wisdom, I be
lieve, to vest these important officers
with authority to appoint men to the
minor places and then hold them re
sponsible for their administration.
Looking over the appointments that
I have been called upon to make and
seeing the work that my appointees
have done, I am convinced that better
results could not have been obtained
by a direct ballot In this regard, it
is gratifying to know that of the many
men I have appointed to fill vacancies-
to elective offices, practically all
have been endorsed by the voters. A
notable instance is in the case of the
judges. I have appointed six district
judges and of these all but one have
been elected; his defeat was not due
to his failure to give good service, but
to the fact that his opponent was a
man of unusual strength and popu
larity. "Another important place which I
filled by appointment was that of
election commissioner of Omaha, and
it was gratifying to note that my op
ponent in the campaign of two years,
ago, publicly pledged himself to re
appoint him in case he was elected.
Supreme Court Judges by Districts.
"I repeat what I have said m - my
former messages to the effect that I
favor a constitutional amendment
which will provide for the election of
the chief justice by the state at large,
and the election of the associate
judges from districts, thus giving the
different parts of the state representa
tion, upon tne court. 1
Our Primary Law.
"I again call your 'attention to the
necessity of an improvement in our
Erimary law. The present law, as I
elieve, has a tendency to keep out of
public life the man whom we most
need, candidates come to us at tne
primary election without endorsement
from anybody, without the electorate
having any chance of knowing their
aualthcations. moral standing or any
thing else. Platforms, declarations
and pledget mean but little when they
are to be enforced by a man who Is
incompetent, and who ha but little
regard for organized government
I hope that a committee win be se
lected that win give its entire time
throughout the i legislative session to
the improvement ot the primary taw.
Our Public Schools.
"In a former message I called at
tention to the method of electing our
school officers. By the enactment of
the nonpartisan judiciary law we took
the courts of the state out of poli
tics. This was a long step forward
and so far as I have been able to
learn it meets with almost universal
approval. I feel that it is now our
Hutv to take another advance step.
The stability of a republican form of
government-depends upon the intelli
gence Of , Hi citizenship and this in
telligence' is 'fostered and developed
hv our nubile school system. The
schools, however, cannot do their best
work when enmeshed in party poli
tics. Like the courts, they ought to
be free and, above political intrigue
and I, therefore, recommend the en
artment of a law for the nomination
and election of our school superin-

1 call your attention to a -report
made by Dr. Carrol Fox. who is in
the employ of the federal government
and who came here at -my- request,
but at the expense of the federal gov
ernment, to assist us in getting some
legislation to improve our health
taws. I regard this as one of the
most important matters of this ses
sion. It wilt require some persistent
and intelligent work in order( to
bring a better condition out of the
chaos that now exists. Better sani
tary and health laws should be pass
ed, and an appropriation providing
the necessary funds for this' depart
ment should be made, but the funds
should be so expended that they will
bring results. The money ought not
be used for an unnecessary number
of health officers, or to have several
departments which are not working
in harmony, making conditions worse
if possible, than they are now.
