Governor of Illinois Says
That Government Needs
Business Administration
Advocates Budget System In Municipal, State and
National affairs Declares Taxes Have Strong
Bearing: on Prevailing High Costs Praises
Omaha as Beautiful and Progressive.
Frank O. Lowden, governor of
Illinois, visited in Omaha yesterday,
as a candidate tor tne repuoucan
presidential nomination.
I he governor arrived at 8 a. m
from Minneapolis, met prominent
local republicans in the morning at
Hotel tontenelle," delivered a short
noonday address at the University
club, declined to be interviewed on
politics, asserted that Omaha is a
beautiful and progressive city, and
then departed on an afternoon train
for Denver,
"I appeal to you that there is no
business in Omaha that is so im
portant as that of endeavoring to
establish a stable government, which
we must have if we are to endure,
said Governor Lowden, addressing
meeting yesterday, noon at the
University club.
Taxation Must Be Practical.
Ihe governor, who is being men
tioned in connection with the repub
lican presidential nomination, was in
troduced by Norris Brown, former
United States senator, at originally
from Iowa.
The guest of honor asserted that
taxation has been considered large
ly from an academic standpoint, and
now it must be considered from the
everyday, practical point of view. He
stated that there it a prevailing
tendency in municipal, ttate and na
tional governments to continue cer
tain functions of government be
yond their periods of usefulness, be
cause the persons who have their
hands on them manifest a human
trait of not being willing to let them
go into the discard, where they, belong
Ihe governor advocated the bud
get system of national, ttate and
municipal finances and he urired
every community in this country to
return to the old-fashioned notion
that it must assume the responsibili
ty of conserving its own peace, in
stead, of calling upon the federal
government; that it should maintain
its own law and order and thus
vindicate its right to telf-govern-ment.
Will Operate Forever.
"There are certain fundamental
laws which obtained before the war,
will obtain after the war and will
operate forever. It is still true that
you can not divide what you do not
produce and the safe way to reduce
the price of commodities is to pro
duce more and consume less. Ihe
admonition to live within -your in
come applies to individual, state and
nation, he said.
"Who will doubt but that taxes
have affected the high cost of liv
ing, due to the fact that taxes ulti
mately have been passed on to the
consumer? There is no problem to
day that does not bear some rela
tion to taxation. Taxes are reach
ing the point where private initia
tive in business is being discouraged.
1 don't care how rich a government
may be, there is a point beyond
which you can not go without en
dangering its prosperity.
"It would be interesting to know
how many activities of the war are
being continued beyond their need,
because men who are in control of
them will not let them go. The time
has come and the necessity is here
for modernizing the machinery of
our government, so that we won't
hear the reproach, 'That is the way
the government does business.
Direct Relation to Taxation.
"Who can doubt that the high cost
of living has an intimate bearing
upon the general question of un
rest?" the governor added. "And
so, as I said a moment ago, there is
no problem of a domestic nature
which confronts the American peo
ple today that has not a direct and
important relation to the whole
question of taxation.
"I happened the other day to be
upon a train coming out of Wash
ington. I met a member of the ap
propriations committee of the house
on that train. He told me that in
1916, a fact with which you are all
familiar, I have no doubt, the appro
priations totaled something like $1,
100,000,000. That figure seemed enor
mous at that time and it was com
mented upon with more or less mis
giving as to the future of the coun
try. "He also informed me that the re
cent book of estimates has been sub
mitted to congress and that the total
for the next fiscal year is somehing
more than $4,800,000,000, or more
than four times as much as four
years ago. The war has been over
for 15 months. It is apparent that
this practice that the American peo-

they have expanded the function of
government, never to withdraw,
even though the emergency is gone,

tion that is being asked from con
gress today."

this trip are: Joseph C. Mason,
member of the publicity committee
for the Lowden candidacy and also
administrative auditor at the Illinois
state house; John P. Tracy, chief of
staff; E. O. Phillips, political writer
of the Chicago Tribune, and John
Butnian of the Chicago News.
IThe distinguished visitor was met
at Union station by M. L. Learned,
vice chairman of the state republican
central committee; W. F. Gurley
and Norris Brown. Among those
who called on the governor at Hotel
Fontenelle were Luther Drake, Har
ry S. Byrne, W. D. McHugh, John
N. Baldwin and Harry St. Clair.
Governor Lowden asserted that
he would rather do anything except
give interviews and talk politics. He
was asked for an opinion on the
ratification of the league of nations
treaty and he referred to his recent
reply to Senator Borah, when he
said he believed the treaty should
be ratified with the senate reserva
tions. Omaha Has Great Future.
The governor's presidential boom
was launched November 7 at Spring
field, 111., at a meeting of Illinois
The governor, when asked for an
interview on his candidacy, national
politics, probable issues in the forth
coming presidential campaign, and a
few other matters of more or less
importance, he thought' a minute, as
if studying his words, and then he
solemnly replied:
T wish to state that Omaha is a
beautiful and progressive city. I
have often heard of Omaha and I
know that it has a great future."
The purpose of the governor's
visit here was to meet those who
are in sympathy with his presiden
tial candidacy and to discuss plans
for the Nebraska campaign.
Local headquarters have been
opened in the Paxton hotel, with
John N. Baldwin in charge. Harry
St. Clair has charge of the state
publicity work.

"Reckon the' won't no sentence of
this co't make much differencevto
me, judge," taid Whitmore and then
gave way to a spell of coughing.
"The law leaves me no course but
to sentence you to the state peni
tentiary for one to seven years;" said
the judge. "There is a hospitalthere
and you can get the care you re
quire." Whitmore is said to be in an ad
