EXECUTIVE MAKES NOTABLE ADDRESS QUESTION OFSTATE RIGHTS Does Not Approve of Commonwealths Being Made Subservient to ferior Federal CourtsWould Uphold Constitution Gov John A Johnson of Minnesota delivered at the dedication of the Minnesota monument on Shiloh battlefield April 10 an address that will rank as one of the ablest public de liverances of recent times Spoken on a battlefield that may be taken as the symbol of the great war for the union the governor took occasion to tell of the peril that threatens our federal form of governmen This peril was emphasized by the recent decision of the supreme court in the rail way cases going up from Minnesota and North Carolina which practi cally makes the state governments ubservient to the inferior federal yourts The significance of these de cisions is widely understood and they have given rise to a general discus sion of the question of the rights of the states and Gov Johnsons speech will rank as an important contribu tion to that discussion The dedicatory address in part follows Representing the people of the com monwealth of Minnesota we are as sembled on one of the historic battlefields of the civil war to pay our tribute of respect and affection to the remory of the sons of Minnesota who here yielded up their lives that this might continue to be a united na tion Their sacrifice was not for per sonal gain but was in response to duty and a contribution to the civ iJ Cation of the age and for the pur pose of perpetuating the institution of human liberty- I appreciate that nothing which I can say will add to or detract from the glory of their achievement which in itself Is an enduring monument to the patriotism and heroism of the American soldier Their sacrifice however was not different from that which has been made throughout all of the ages by those lovers of liberty who believe in a government which might give to all the people the right to life liberty and property The lovo of liberty was not born In this country of ours It was cradled along the Danube and about the shores of the Baltic even when Rome had reached the limit of her Imperial grandeur Increasing In intensity with the passing of the centuries it found Its highest expression In the older countries in the great English charter of civil rights which forever guaranteed to the people of that land immunity from the despotism of those who claimed to rule by virtue of Di vine rteht One hundred and thirtytwo years ago the great contest of humanity was ansferred from the old world to the ev and here because of the Isola ton of this country because of the ilgh character of the man who es toused the cause of liberty and be ause of the signal victory achieved y them In that struggle an opportu ty was affordod to crystallize into written law the aspirations of the pa nets of all the ages The men who Milt the foundations of this govern submittedLo the supreme test of patriotism for hose who insired the constitution of he United States were the same who ad pledged their lives their proper ties and their sacred honor to the itnsc of independence Vhie the object of a writ ten constitution is to done govern mental powers and to limit govern mental departments the Qv nvbtlm Ing necessity fop such an Instrument Is to prevent insidious encroachments upon the rights of the individual citi zen both from those in office and from these who by reason of their wealth and power have an influence far greater than that possessed by the average citizen And so the constitq- tien pf the United States was regarde- by its framers as an Instrument pf th most sacred import an alteration p which could only bp made by ttie pi pie themselves in whom aU ultimat- gtiti Ig vested and thou ony after the fullest discussion and widest publicity Under the beneficent government ao established the nation leas prospered and the people are happy One great cloud came upon the nation in the form of an awful civil war in which tWQ sections of the country wero Ht conflict with each otlior The heroes s who rest here gave their lives that this nation might be maintained as i came from our forefathers On another battlefield of that war Abraham Lin coIn f3lJ JflTt is for us the living rather to be dedicated to the unfinished work they have thus far sq nobly carried qn It ts rather for to be here dedicated to the great tas remaining before us that from these honored dead wo take increased devq tfon for that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion that we highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain that th nation shall under Gpd have a new birth of freedom and that the government of the people by the people for the people shall not perish front tbe earthOur concorD Is not of the past no wholly with the present but much with the future If the destiny of republic Is in the hands of the Ame ican of today then it becomes him be guided and governed only by patri otic impulse and the desire to do which will most largely contribute 1l ekildsMit safe 1 the permanency of republican lubLtu tions Advancing our civilization so that we will not by recognizing the false claims of selfish int lets a forgetting the American inaJni th 1Iour object should be to attain greatest good for the greatest incur the penalty which other peopt have paid rather let us hold ever iti mind that those who framed our gov ernment believed in the equa- lity c the people and that the chief aim r government is to maintain tin our system of government the station has ret led a material dr velopment hitherto unknown TI people have prospered beyond tlr dreams of these who lived a centu ago But with the development of th country and changes in economic cor ditions and particularly with th growth of great private corporation performing many of the functions government has come the necessI for the exercise of strict government control and a rigid enforcement of a the laws enacted to restrain the rh and powerful from encroaching u the natural and legal rights of th poor and weak The constitution of the ancient re public of Rome which for 500 yea had recognized the voice of the peo as supreme was expanded by execs tive interpretation and contracted lr executive administration until Rom had so completely outgrown its demo cratic conditions as to become onl a tragedy and a tradition Let us plore the aid of Him on high to preserve us from the errors which ruiuei1 Rome by the avoidance of which America may travel on to that destiny and realize that fulfillment which will be the inspiration of rightthinking men of all ages yet to come Our government is divided into three separate and distinct coordi nate branches the legislative the executive and the judicial Danger will surely come to this when any of these departments of govern ment attempt In the slightest degree to usurp the functions of the other And while now and then it may be that a court of the land in construing the constitution may nullify a section of it I have the faith to feel that the people of the country will rise above the fallibility of judicial tribunals and assert and preserve their own rights Our duty it not to criticise the execu tive the legislature or the judiciary Very recently there has come from the highest judicial tribunal In the land a decision of vital interest and concern to the American people because it has established a principle stated by one member of the court which would work a radical change In our governmental system and would inaugurate a new era in the American judicial system and in tho rela tions of the national and state gov ernments It would enable the subor dinnte federal courts to supervise and control the official action of the states as though they were dependencies or provinces It would place the states of the union in a condition of infer iority never dreamed of when the con stitution was adopted or when the eleventh amendment was made a pare of the supreme law of the land If this is the result of this decision it unhappyincidentslie because the verj theory of cu government Is based upon the right o the states to control absolutely then own domestic affairs If then our whole system of government is changed have we not only retarded the progress of the republic but have we not gone back a century toward a centralized form of gOY ernment which is not to the advan tage of the people What this gov ernment needs is not more power What it needs tqday Is to so dis tribute the privileges under the government that all citizens will have equal opportunity America has been called the land of opportunity But American opportunity should not mean a granting of special privileges to any class but should afford all alike the means for culture education prosperity and contentment for nearly a century and a half America has presented to the world the spectacle of a happy prosperous addofpeopleemocracy is advancing its progress is marked by a greater measure of self government to each community Will the American people turn to the set ting rather than the rising sun t Shall we now because some laws are found irksome by a class and Interfere with their selfish aims commence to de prive our sovereign states of that measure of home rule which until now they have seen fit to reserve to them tselves I cannot believe

that there will be more farming bi twentyfive per cent done in Rockcastle this year than ever before In the Eastern part of the county fields and new grounds are being cleaned up new fences built and a general appearance that the farmers have come to the realization of the fact that more attention should be given to the farms In the north ern and western part of the county the prospects for splendid yields from well kept farms has never been equaled Wheat and oat fields one after another and a s fine as many of those in the Blue Grass are to be seen for miles in every direction The acreage of corn will exceed by hundreds of acres the of any former loadsiof fertilizer has already been dis tributed throughout the county and still there is more yet to come On last Monday the

amount We are glad to see our farms being looked after andwith this we may confidently look for a better and more prosperous Rock castle Good farms calls for better roads means a better every thing and for everybody More farming and better farming is the thing Rockcastle has long since needed Men who contribute money to buy votes and bribe the peoples representatives as well as those who disburse it are deadly enemies of the republic Their greed and love of power are greater than their love of country They im pair popular respect for law which is the only safe guard for life and property and it will be an evil day for the nation when its preservation depends upon their patriosm and courage They may masquerade in the garb of righteousness and address the people in the language of patriotism but their virtues are assumed they are hypocrites and assassins of liberty and would welcome a dynasty rather than shed their blood in defense of popular government The Republicans of

John son Progressive Democrat of In tegrity Ability and Achievement Success Is Assured Wearied of 12 years of overwhelm ing defeat in national elections during which time the party has lost national political control of every northern state and has witnessed devastating inroads even on the southern states hundreds of thousands of Dem ocratic voters have in the last few months asked Who is the man who can load the party to victory The best of armies military or political require some measure of suc cess to maintain their spirit and efficiency Continuous and overwhelm ing defeat even in the worthiest of causes disheartens the strongest men Conditions are such in this year 19C3 that a united Democracy sup- portIng a strong presidential nominee can win the presidential office and open the way for a return ofjhe Democratic party to power Not only do the best interests of the Democratic party call for a victory this year but so also do the best interests of the na tion Twelve years of almost unop posed government of the republic by one party and for eight of those years practically by one man have brought about conditions that are repugnant to the efficient and satisfactory ad ministration of a government sup posedly of the people Principle with VictorycVictory can be achieved this year without sacrificing one iota of the stand for principle that has been made with so much sacrifice by the Democratic party of the United States for the last dozen years It is merely a question of changing leadership Three times in succession our party has gone to defeat because its leadership has not beet able to inspire confidence in the masses of the voters patriotic progressive and sincere as that leadership has unquestionably been The party Is greater than its individual membership and greater than its leaders The time has come when it should name its leader in a president tial campaign and no longer permit It self to be defeated by a sentimental though heroic devotion to a great name that has dominated it for a dozen years If in the ranks of the party there is a Ulan whose principles whose party fealty whose success in political bat tles whose actual achievements in legislation and statesmanshipand a man holding a commanding political situationare such that victory under Ills leadership is indicated is it not the duty of reasonable thoughtful devoted Democrats desiring the success of their party to turn to him Johnson the Man The friends of Gov John A Johnson of Minnesota who have watched his remarkable career in recent years as well as impartial observers and jour nalists throughout the country believe that he Is the man of the hourthe man in every way equipped to make a successful campaign and afterward to be a chief executive of the highest order Let us briefly review his career John A Johnson was born in St Peter Nicollet county Minnesota July 28 1661 of Swedish parents His childhood and youth were passed in great poverty At 13 years of e he was compelled to leave the public schools of his native city in order to support himself and the parental fam- Ily Though his formal education was thus early cut short his selfeducation never stopped A student at all time a wide reader and a thoughtful one Mr Johnson after some years of ob scure toll as a drug and grocery clerk and ravay timekeeper became at the age of 24 editor of the St Peter Herald He soon became known as one of the ablest of Minnesota jour nalists and was recognized as one of the leaders of journalism in a state remarkable for the number vigor and in fluence of Its periodical press As a country editor ho was gradually drawn into politics and In 1898 was elected a member of the senate of the Minne sota legislature and his first public po litical work was as a member of that body From the first he was identi flee with various reform measure which have since become Jaw in Min nesota Wherever Gov Johnson has gone he has impressed men as being a man of the Lincoln type He has the faculty of making many friends and few enemies Gov Johnsons Legislative Results The governor recommended a per manent tax commission The legis lature gave It to him and the ink was hardly dry on the document before he appointed a commission so strong in yits personnel that the Republican sen ate resolved by a rising vote to con firm the appointments without delay Awhile the equally Republican house though without the power of confirmation expressed by a rising vote its appreciation of the excellence of the gov ernorij appointments Jn northern Minnesota are the greatest iron ore fields In the world The state of Minnesota owns extensive areas df these lands By leases they were largely in the hinds of the Unit ed States Steel Corporation and the state was receiving only an insignifi cant income from its royaltiesirhe governor advised the withdrawal pf all such lauds from mineral leases and the legislature concurred Minnesota has enjoyed but scant In Tc have perfect health we must have perfect digestion and it is very important not to permit of any delay The moment the stomach feels out of order Take something It once that you know will prompt ly and unfailingly assist diges tion There is nothing better than Kodol for dyspeosia indigestion sour stomach belching of gas and nervous headache Kodol is a nat ural digestant and will digest what you eat Sold br Chas C Davis tome from the wealth of the privately owned iron mines The governor recommended a royalty tax on the out put of these mines He did not get it but the United States Steel Corporation bound itself as a substitute to establish a 20000000 steel plant at newly created tax commission together with the state board of equal ization which preceded it the members of which were appointed by Governor Johnson have in the four yeaIS of Governor Johnsons adminis tration increased the assessed valua tion of the steel corporations iron ore foldings in Minnesota from 32000000 to 190000000 The sleepingcar companies of Min aesota had never paid taxes in Min nesota in proportion to their earnings rhe governor recommended a change 1n the system of taxing these compan es and a satisfactory law was enacted Similarly a rational law as to mort sage taxation was enacted Railway Regulation Taking up freight rates Governor Johnson in a powerful speech so exhaustively and conclusively bared ex isting unequal and exorbitant rates that the railway companies voluntarily made a reduction of ten per cent on grain rates on their lines in northern Minnesota By order of the railway commission reinforced by subsequent legislation this voluntary reduction was followed fcy a horizontal reduction in maximum freight rates of about 13 per cent and there was created a new class of merchandise tariff in which the rates were reduced about 20 per cent The railways took these reductions Into the United States courts by enjoining the attorney gen eral of Minnesota from enforcing the law This action has opened up somo of the most important litigation in volving constitutional interpretation that has come before the supreme ourt fn this generation The TwoCent Law The enactment of the twocent passenger tariff law was an example oftGovernor Johnsons celerity of action Invited to address the Minnesota Edi torial association instead of making the usual platitudinous address on such occasions he exploded the two cent bomb and urged that an end be put to the giving of passes He talked on the same subject to a convention of commercial travelers Immediate ly the state was aflame with this lane vation in railway legislation When the legislature met he asked for a law embodying this idea and the legisla ure quickly responded Neighboring states followed with reductions and now throughout the middle northwest the twocent rate prevails About the time Governor Johnson came Into office there was a wide spread agitation for reciprocal demur rage laws which would compel railways to allow shippers demurrage charges for failure to deliver cars on time Governor Johnson ever abreast of popular progress recommended such a law and got it Thanks to his initiative the orders of the Minnesota Railroad and Warehouse commission are now immediate ly effective pending appeal In Defense of Labor Governor Johnson in consonance with his thorough democracy and believing in equal rights has not been neglectful of the interests of labor He desired a free state employment bu reau designed to eliminate the many abuses that have marked private employment bureaus in the great labor centers of Minnesota Such a bureau was created and has been thoroughly helpful and widely efficient Since time Immemorial that relic of feudalism the common law doctrine of nonliability of employer to occurringthroughservant has prevailed In Minnesota as well as in many other states This saidGovrule generally referrrd to as the doc trine of the assumption of risk by employes has cast upon the individual laborer a risk and responsibility out of proportion to the wages he re ceives During his term of pffice Gov Johnson has had to deal with one great conflict between labor and capital namely the strike of the miners on the Minnesota iron ranges By direct personal intervention by advice to the employers on the one hand and the strikers on the other the governor suc troopsinIn the forests and prairies of northern Minnesota are great extents of fertile land which owing to lack of drainage have not been available for cultivation Thanks to Gov Johnson additional legislation on this subject was secured and hundreds of thou sands of acres uf fertile land will ba added to the rolls of the states wealth Gov Johnson believes In the muni cipal ownership of public utilities and
