no better medium than the SIGNAL to agitate reform of any kind to reach a region than in common with other regions ot the State adjaceut and remote need be awakened to the real relation of our people to material educational and spiritual progress The term intellectual might be substituted for spirtual and be better understood by the masses than otherwise c The writer has seen recently a criticism of an editorial in the it Citizen Berea which gives an outsiders view of Kentuckys literacy or illiteracy as compared with that of New York and the literacy of the mountains of Ky compared with the more favored coitions of the State in a financial point of view The criticism referred to is that 1r of an editor in New York City and thioughout he is courteous and fair but frank in his statements referring to our people Speaking of teachers as a class in Kentuck he has seen no evidence in letter written by teachers of our State of high grade of scholarship This writer has met many of the teachers in our common and city High Schools and while their scholarly attainments are superior to those of the writer it is true that with some notable exceptions the Standard is not high as is some other States We may j stly and proudly boast of progress in this direction but hitherto we have been heavily handicapped by conditions that have made our system in some sections but little better than a force We have been in fact playing school as children sometimes do with very unsatis factory results to thoughtful ex perienced educators To offset what has been previ ously state l in ths article we have nude some progress in spite of the handicap in spite of negli gence indifference and a defective system It would be unwise and unjust to criticize adversely the work done under a sstem new and untried We are not yet initiated injothe real work fedu cation have in the past six monthJjpeen putting into practice or tt 1plng to doo what has becnjljie rule in the states north of us for along time t Ij must be admitted also that in shaping a new system of education some things have been allowed to adhere of the old system or creep Jn different from any that are in congruant or cumbersome that need amending or eliminating entirely Without attempting to specify and particulars suffice it to asy that the children of the common VVwealth will have to be brought into school before they can be taught that this will require an incresed force of teachers aud better prepared ones than young girls and boys graduates of public or city high schools without experience and poorly equipped as

century a member ot the Atlanta Oa bar and noted as an author and scholar died at 4iittIweT7aged 73 yearsV J VV GOVERNOR WILLSON ls OPPOSED TO BOND ISSUE f rt Chief Executive Favors Increase m Tax Rate As Means of Raising Funds For States NeedsV Defends the Present Administration Frankfort KyGov Wilson spoke at length on the torthe power of the chief executive in his message to the general assembly delivered January 4 He also took up the question of the states finances and made it plain that he was not in favor of bond issue to raise funds The message in l art follows To all of the Members of the Senate and House of Representatives GentlemenI greet with friendly welcome and cordial goodwill the first sitting of the members of the general assembly in the beautiful new capitol It is a state house most worthy of Ken tucky and our people and our times This meeting established by law brings together at the capitol once in two years the three branches of the government the legislative the judi clal and the executive and gives a chance which should not be neglected for the three branches not only to follow out their usual work but to coun seT together unofficially as well as officially as chosen representatives of all of the people for the general welfare of our State and our countryV Appeals for Amity The members of the genera assem bly can well afford to take counsel or the learned justices of the court of appeals and the executive department will be glad to have the counsel th help and the gcod will of the judges and the members At this session no election of senator nor us far as I know any other question of partisan politics hangs over us to cloud the counselor the judgment of the three branches of the government each regularly elected by the people for Its own term and it seems to me that we are freer than ever before to consdei everything which shall cdTe befor your session with ah eye single to its usefulness end the honor and the wel

three d Jnct departments and eaebVtile onfined to a separate bcdy of inagV acy and no per on or collection ersohs being of one pf those depart ents shall exercise any power prop ly belonging 10 either of the others Jach is supreme in its own field and uarded from encroachment or oppo sition by the other The courts may decide whether an act of the leglshfr ture fs constitutional or void and may settle the meaning of nny act for the executive departmenti The legislature can pass laws which the executive department is required by the constitution to obey and may declare what money snail be collected and what it may be used for but the governor has no right to act as judge or demand that any court shall follow his opinion of the law Neither the governor nor the courts have any right to demand that the general assembly shall enact any law which they may think necessary or in any way regulate the public policy which It is the function of the general assembly to fix The general assembly has no right to act judicially except in the case ex pressly declared in the const ituton It has 10 more right to perform any duty of ihe governor or the auditor or treasurer and It has at least no moral right to take Trom the executive branch the appointment Teinoval sup ervision or control of the wjcrk pi per- Sons chosen to do the ministerial or administrative work in eieputing the

has come to pass that the goy ernor of Kentucky whether Democrat or Republican is shorn of the usual and proper power cf the executive de partment and has practically almost no part in the appointments no power of correction or removal to enforce by the power of removal for neglect in efficiency or dishonesty the responsi bulLy of minor officers and employes bUii1uessNot ago governor souri told we that he had the appoint ment or control of between six and seven thousand officers and employees of the state government In Kentucky the only appointments left to the present governor or

the power of thCj governor is bu u shadow of what the power was for merly and was meant to be or what It is in other states and in the nation and this remarkable departure from our plan cf government

government by the changes in the laws whch have taken from it the power and control meant to be vested in the governor and in fact so vested in other states because of any personal wish to have he power cf appointment My ncmna tion and election came to me in such a way that IL left my obHgatidns and gratitude due to the whole people and 0 my party at rteinl no ta individ with no organization or personal luals for me to be anxiousrto re wardV am grateful to the party which Ir me and biotgtabaut my L am grateful to these not usuirilypaii oflt who helpedl make the change in the executive depact Eent I respect iri party and these elements Jnd hold to the faith that their influ ence is for the best interest of the state but my obligations secoiidonly to my duty to the Whole people are to elements rather than to individuals What I have had to say on ths sub ect is less Important to me with leas than two years of my term remaining than it will be to those of any party who shall come after me The actual and only reason for referring to it is that the present laws net only en croach uppn the executive branch but make the conduct of the public bus ness less useful more costly and less creditable to the people than it would be if any man holding the office of governor had the appointment and re movulef all state employes whb ought toe appointed by him ldhwere thus held responsibly for the honest faithful and wise admln5stratlon of that power Such officers elected by the people hold their offices for the byIjrcsecutfonelected by the general assembly are similarly free from control or re sponsibility except during the 60 days session once In two years and in the interval cf 22 months the grossest cor ruption greatest neglect worst man age ent the moat reckless and prod- Igal expenses all would be free from supervision or correction except when the acts might become criminal I wish to lay special stress as gOY ernor of this cornmonwealth on the fact that in Session after session the legislative branch his made laws tak y lug awayS-meet appointments and rower asways lin every State and always bforeVin this state vested In the chief execu live Sometimes it was dche by a Democratic legislature to take ap pointments and control from Re publican governor sometimes I be lieve front a governor of their own party either from factional opposition dr from plne legislative aggression but whatever the cause the results that the legislative department has not only chosen its own organization and attendants as expressly authorized by the constitution but it has taken from the governor nearly all of tha ex ecutive power and duties of appointment controL slierv21onand removal cf officers and employes whose inno lions are purely executive and in no sense jifdlciai or legislative al though this power has been held by every governor cf all the ether states and of Kentucky until within the last few years This has been accomplish ed partly by providing for elections of many officers that should be appointed and be subject to control and removi as men bfolding like positions are in other important systems partly by delegating their appointment to ether executive officers sometimes to the judges and partly by creating offices for executive business to be filled by men elected by the legislative branch as notably in the case of the prison commissipu Left to Whim No grout railroad factory mercan tile or other important business can ba successfully managed under any such conditions In every other business the general executive board of direc tcrs can instantly remove those whcse services are not most profitable and useful in the peoples business the efficiency and responsibility are left almost wholly to the whim and will f the holders of the offices It is an honor to our people that so bd a system has brought to light so few abuses of office as in Kentucky have submitted these views with no thought of personal benefit but because the constitution makes it the duty of the governor to lay before the general assembly from time to time such information and invite their con 5iderati9Pr5Q such measures as he duty reCommend STalks on Finances The governor then takes up the question ofv the financial condition of the state and defends his administra tion together with the administration of other state officers Reference
