It lies v.l tli you to mnko that dawning, so far us Kentucky It concerned, glorious and prophetic of a century of progress, or to render It years of civil darkened and n forecast of and commercial oppression to our people. It may not bo Inappropriate to briefly remind you of. our country's remarkable nehlevemenlH durlmr tho century now drawing to n ctoso. Three great wars with ron-lgfoos have been triumphantly wnifcd: Independence our national wrought and tho supremacy of American irniH established. The most gigantic civil conflict In history has been fought by our eople, Its Issues forever settled, and tho uncle country Indlssolubly bound together lu bonds of Internnl love. Ouin has eoiun to bo the exemplar of liberty to fill the nations of tho earth and our flag lias crossed tho seas and redeemed the lands of bondage. Krom a few thinly populated states on tho eastern coast our nation has extended Its territory by and purchnso from ocean to ocean and rroni the gulf In the lakes, and our population has grown to moro than of freo people. Stated more vast than old world empires ImVo been carved out of tho wilderness and tlcsert, and nddeil to (ho national cluster. Ilellglon lias reared her temples and education her Heats or lenrnlng in every community within our borders, nnd our general people nro enjoying n degreo of nnd material prosperity unprecedented In nil history. With the lessons of yesterday so plaln-I- v In bo read In tho light or with tho past achievements of our people ro vitally In our hearts, so enduring In our memories; with horizon ot tho glowing with tuo so hrlghtlv the to Inspire, It Is fit with all these things tint natural thnt In tho nrcecnt grnvo condition of nftalrs In tho state, the people ihoultl rxpeel of you such legislative action as srmll restore nnd conservo to them their liberties nnd to neqult your-- i elves In all regards as patriots. A republican f government de. form wmls upon tln snnetltv of suffrage. Ro long ns tho rights of ballot nre hold so long will there bo security ami In tho stnlo; but where, by forms of law or otherwise, this most snered prerogative of tho eltlrens Is Imnalred nr destroyed, then strife nnd eonfuslon follow, nnd Jrcc government Is at an end. The supremo object of n republican form of government Is "Iho grentest good to tho greatest number." Anything subversive of this Inevltnbly results either In despotism or anarchy. Tho peonle of our own state have nlwavs to.ilously guarded this sacred right ot suffrage by con-Hur- st y hap-Iiluc- ss KDUCATION. No genuine thinker or trUo patriot over questions tho truth nnd wisdom of the declaration uttered nearly 23 centuries ago by Aristotle, that tho fate ot empires depends upon the education of tho children. It Is In common accord with tho common experience of mankind, nnd Is abundantly illustrated In every essential It applies advancement in civilization. with peculiar force to states with a republican form of government whoso real strength and stability rest alono with tho people. It Is, therefore, of the utmost importnnco thnt nontucky should zealously guard her common school Interests, it Is a matter for congratulation that the reboots continue to grow In efficiency, nnd popular from year to yrur, as Is ovldenced favor better attendby ance. Increased number of districts that furnish local aid and more thorough preparation on tho part of teachers. The per capita for tho school years ending June 30, is.,, ISO, 180il, reached tho high water mark, being $2.73. $2.85 nnd $2.80 respectively for i.ieso years. After tho per capita for tho school year ending June SO, 1800, had been fixed, lnrffe sums of back taxes were collected from railroads and other sources, which materially nuemented tho school fund. Tills enabled tho administration to fix tho per capita, nt $2.70 fur tho present school year. A suitable building, properly furnished, Is a prerequisite to every school dlstilct.

In many statiB the township or county rnt.ier than the school district Is made the Unit for tnxatlon. i no desired might result from legislation along these lines. Theso suggestions nro submitted for your consideration. The governor dwells ut length on the Importance of a perfect system of enumeration for school purposes in larger districts. Ono of tho most deplornblo defects In our common school system Is tho shortness of the term. In ...o rural districts children seldom havo an opportunity to attend school longer than ttvo months enrh venr. This fact seriously cripple the efficiency of tho schools. Teachers ran 111 afford to prepare for their work; In fact, can not. mnke teaching n profession un-- er a system that gives them employment for onlv five months out of 12. It Is not probable that the school fund will uo materially increased uy state taxation. STATU COLLKGES. Standing nt tho head of Kentucky's public schol system and forming nn essential pnrt of it, aro two institutions for higher education, tho ono for tho white and the other for tho colored race. Kach lu Its sphero hns done, nnd Is destined to do, a great work for the young men and young women of tho commonwenlth In tho way of professional training. These scnools, called the Stnte college and the State Normnl School for Colored Persons, should, from tlmo to time, have such aid from tho general assembly additional to tin regular appropriation?, ns their growth demands. Tho governor cites tho Injustice to voting women In the matter of higher education, nnd tsks tno question; What could bo moro plainly the duty ot tho st ite than to provide the greatest possible la 'limes to incse young women, wno will become tho teachers of tho state public schools, to procuro tho best equipment for this importnnt office t To this end, 1 recommend that the lcglslaturo mnko nn appropriation amplo for tho erection of a commodious dormitory for tho voung women students at tho State college, with all facilities necessary for tho Incorporation of tho department of domestic science. This dormitory should bo placed under tho management of Christian women, CIIAniTABLU INSTITUTIONS. Tho roports from tho stnto asylums will be laid before you. It seems that the sanltnry condition of each of tho Institutions Is excellent. Tho Inmates aro well clothed, well fed and properly cared for In overy particular. Tho expenses ot tho Knstern asylum for tho fiscal year ending September "0. 1890, exceeded its Income by $2,CS2.30. This deficit wns caused by expending considerable money lor repairs of buildings. Tho report of the treasurer of tho Western asylum, covering tho period from October 1, 180S, to September 30, 1800, bhowed that that Institution lived within Its Income nnd had to its credit at tho latter dato $S,8C0.10. of The reports of tho commissioners 'tho Kentucky Institute for tho Education commisof Deaf Mutes nnd that of tho sioners of tho Kentucky Institute for the Education of tho Blind nro laid before your body for consideration. HOUSES Of REFORM. In 1S06 an net was passed appropriating $100,000 tor tho purpose of purchasing a silo nnd erecting houses of reform, whero Juvenile offenders might bo confined. For 110 years this class ot prisoners had been Incarcerated with old and hardened criminals. This is no longer tho case. Tho commissioners appointed by tho governor, under tho provisions of tho net. purchased a site near Lexington, Ky nnd havo part ly compieicu mo imumngs, nun w prisoners hnvo already been conveyed to that re-ll- o. factory results. ' Hov. Taylor hero mentions thnt section of the slnte constitution which say that nil elections shall be freo nnd equal, and then proceeds to describe tho passing of tho Ooebol election law. The eltlrens of the stnto or rommiinlfv vole noon other nnd crnver questions than thnt of who shall servo ns their nubile officers. Matters that afreet the well being of the locality, constitutional amendments nnd other nuestlons-o- f vital Importnnoe mint be dennd termined under tho same law that for tho election of public oftlcers nnd aro of paramount Importance to the peonle. The Infallible test of the wisdom or folly of nny law lies In Its nnnlleatlnii Tho present election inw. tried liv this let. is unwise, unpitrlotle and unjust. Its nrnvlslons mnl'e it possible for everv election tribunal In the stnte. from th highest to the lowest, to lie dominated by ono narty: Its onerat'on makes of thnt possibility a reality. Not only has It permitted one nnrtv to pne't the pmrlnot election bos'-dwith partisan ofTWrs but It has likewise nrevented the various other nnrtles from having ndeouate representation nt Hie polls to witness the cistllig nnd countlnir of the vote. More than this, lu mnnv Inslnnces, the officers nnnolntcd under Its "rovlslnns refused to hold elections nt nil nr to certify tho ote ns cast, or certified to thnt which was falpe. nnd sought in everv other way thnt partisan ingennltv could devise to denrlvo the voters of their suffrage.

Tho reputation of tho stato has been injured immigration retarded because abroad and ot this facti This evil demands tho most jerlous attention of your body, Tne OccUirenco ih Mason county Ib so shocking and revolting that It emphasizes the necessity for effective legislation to prevent Its repetition in tr.o inline. The present law provides sufficient punish ment for such offenders as these, but tho sentiment lu communities where theso things occur, seems to either oveinwo the oll'cers who lira charged with the cxecu- tlon of the law or elso enlist their sym- ' pathles lu favor of the violations. Hence, It is apparent mat it tnese lire to be brought to justice, It must be by giving courts removed from tho scene of the crime Jurisdiction, and authorizing the selection of special prosecutors who are Independent of local Influences. Although all efforts to punish thiti character of crirrlo have hitherto proved futile, 'et our efforts should not relax, until fomc sufficient remody Is devised to prevent Its commission, WOMEN'S PRISON. Tho penitentiary at Frankfort is great ly overcrowded. Tho spaco occupied by women is needed for the accommodation of men, and the quartern aro totally inadequate for opportunity to give the women tho instruction they need.

Much complaint comes from the lurgcr cltlou of our state becauso of tho fact, that under tho constitution they nro praccontically denied local cerning municipal tnxatlon. It Is earnestly Insisted that this fact great!) retards tho growth of theso cities. Tho local tax rnto on all manufacturing Industries In I.oUIbvIIIo for 1S90 was $1.81 (in tlio $100. It Is at onco apparent thnt capital when seeking investment will go whero Its burden will be lightest and Whero the greatest advantages are offorded. Hence, millions of wealth are belnir diverted from our own stnto nnd cities to that of olir rivals. It does seem that the cities should bo allowed to tc dilate their municipal taxation nnd mako such laws ns will suit their leciil Interest. It can not possibly barn; ' the rest of tho stute. For theso reasons It Is recomnien.lrll that your honorablo body again bring before ttls matter them nn tho peoplo bytn the to amendment constitution nllowtng cities of such clashes as yoil may deem proper tho right to regulate the question of municipal tnxatlon. CAlHTOtj nUlliDINO. The public buildings of n state ns certainly lmlicute its financial standing and peblfc thrift as do private bullatngs reveals tho thrift anil enterprise of communities. For many years tho reputation of Kentucky hns suffered, "because' ot the character of Its stato buildings. The structures which sufficed a quarter of a century ago do not suffice for tho present. Tho whole country Is moving forwnrd, and everywhere about us our s.slcr states are keeping step In the of progress nnd prosperity. There is scarcely a stato in tho union thnt does not possess handsomer and more commodious cupltol buildings than our own. This Is true, notwithstanding tho fact many of these states rank far bethat us In points low of wealth and Intelligence. Heretofore tho Impoverished condition of our public treasury has blocked nil effortB to provide for the erection of a new cnpltol. It was but natural that ctr peoplo wero loth to increase their ii.debtednesa to gratify their stnto pride. Put now our financial conditions, nav-Inso materially Improved, tho old argu-mican no longer bo effectively urg.-Is believed that by the continued pracIt tice of economy In the various departments of state, the revenues collected f'om the present tax rato will bo to defray tho current expenditures o.' tho state and leave a, small Burplus each year, besides. Therefore, a small portion of our. future revenues could be set npnrt to tho accumulation of n fund for tho building of a capltol which would honor our stnte and become tho pride of our pcoplp. Eight hundred thousand dollars would, doubtless, be amnio therefor, and this sum could bo provided for In four years, by setting aside .1 cents of the annual tax rato of 1714 cents for that purpose. I would therefore sug-gthat you take such steps along these Pnes ns shall shortly bring about the consummation of this mos.t worthy enterprise. LOCAL OPTION. Much confusion has resulted from a decision of tho court of appeals, construing the law authorizing counties to vote upoti tho question of local option. It hns been held that under the present statute after the county has voted to prohibit the salo of spirituous liquors, nnv subdivision thereof can by a subsequent anil Independent vote abrogate the veto of tho county, so far as the local municipality Is concerned. Under this tho peoplo of the county as .1 whole nro practically denied tho right of determining this Important question. lj Immediate legislation is therefore urged.

Americans are not notable for thel, strict adherence to the truth, but their exaggerations arc so manifest that they eannrt be fairly accused of lying. William Archer, an English author, has recently written a bonk in which he gives some characteristic examples of this trait. He very properly classes it as "American humor." "On board one of the Klorida steamboats, which hare to be built with exceedingly light draught to get over the frequent shallows of the rivers; he relates, "an Englishman accosted the captain with the remark: 'I understand, captain, that you think nothing of steaming across a meadow where there's been, a heavy fall of dew.' 'Well, I don't know about that,' replied the captain, 'but it's trucwe sometimes have to send a man ahead with a watering pot.' Again, a southern colonel was conducted to the theater to see Salvini's 'Othello.' He witnessed the performance gravely, and remarked at the close: 'That was a mighty good show, and I don't see but the coon did as well as any of 'cm.' A third anecdote that charmed me was that of the' man who, being invited to take a drink, replied: 'No, no, I solemnly promised my dear, dead mother never to touch a drop; besides, boys, it's too early in the morning; besides, I've just had one.'
