Sandusky Star Journal, The (Newspaper) - April 6, 1911, Sandusky, Ohio "EVERY LITTLE MOVEMENT HAS A MEANING ALL ITS LIKEWISE EVERY THOUGHT OF MALICE BY SOME KNOCKING STORY'S sununu THE SANDU SKY STAR-JOURNAL. FORTY-FOURTH YEAR SANDUSKY, OHIO, THURSDAY, APRIL 6, 191 LAST EDITION TO PEOPLE IN Message Sent to Senate Today Urging Enactment Of Big Measures. PLACES BLAME FOR CENTRAL BOARD FARCE Demands Popular Election of Senators and No Party Em- blems in Local Elections, COLUMBUS, 0., April ernor Harmon is to fight for the enactment by the legislature of reforms promised in the last plat- form. He began by sending to the senate this morning a mes- sage setting forth his views. The message is mild in its language but is considered the fore-runner of more drastic action, if such ac- tion is necessary. In the message todaj the governor urges the passage of the Gietn bill for non-paitisan election of delegates to the state constitutional convention, the abolishment of emblems ficm ballots in loeal elections; the nomination of state officers bv direct primaries instead of by conventions, and direct election of United States pcnutors. The governor states that these are things that the people have a right to expe-'t at the hands of the present Icgislatuie The governor blames some demo- cratic as well as republican senators for the present situation. In a state- ment en the central board bill as passed by the senate he says: "I wish the people of the state to SAYS AUTHOR WAS DESERTED This is the the Dispatch sized up rction on the Winter's utilities bill- "Following the lean of the rcpuh- lican floor leauer. the democratic house, during moraine and afternoon, built stiong rein- forcements around the Wm- ters public utilities biM.

It is not a partisan measure in any lespect, but merely proudes for systematic and businesslike adminis- tration of the state institutions by a tingle bccly. The maintenance of the instHutio-3 involves tlrc largest of all cxpondituies of the public funds, and e affords the, most field for economy and betterment. The Mas prepared with grcdt care and the popular of was so strong that the last session did not dare to defeat it outiight. So the old trick was employed of emas- culating it so that it could not pos- eibly produce the results desired. To cave the plan from utter disci edit 1 vetoed it, announcing my intention to bring it up again at the present session, which I did. "The house passpd it promptly by a large vote, but in the senate the same eld tactics were again employed.

Resolution Offered In Con- gress Today Calls For Probe By Ohioan. April a brief session today both houses congress adjourned until Monday. After they had succeeded in choking off ihe opposition and at the close o a four hours' political debate, the democrats- adoption of the new rules. The demo- crats claim that their greatest reform is in taking aaav from the speaker his nmver to appoint committees am to designate the chairman of eacu committee. The now rules provide for the election of committees anc their chairmen. The second reform is a return to the former democratic of per milling legislation on appropriation bills when that legislation tends to reduce the expenditures of the gov- ernment. The democratic rules continue calendar Wednesday and the unani- mous consent calendar, and seek to perfect the rule for the discharge of the committees. This latter rule, the democrats declare, effectively does away with the former practice ol stiffing' legislation in "Uncle .Toe" Cannon broke into the debate making his maiden speech ot the senate and he was applauded on both sides. He declared the new rales to be an endorsement of the best that had been worked out in the past.

"Still their purpose to kill this measure by vicious amendments while pretending to favor it, must have fail- ed if by some means tl'py had not been able to gain confederates among the majority. Only a few were need- ed, but they secured and the poi- eon to he administered to the bill was compounded in secret concord and jointly applied. "Tho destruction of this measure Is nothing to me personally. If I j wished to escape great labor and re-1 i ought to be glad. But I cannot remain silent in faci3 of a public wrong. For behind the narrow partisanship stand arrayed selfish in- terests of all kinds. Some offices are to be abolished, and this is a most unusual outrage. Broader competi- tion in purclnses and closer inspec- tion of goods delivered seem to be un- welcome in certiin quarters. And the .proposal to require public supplies to re bongM from state institutions which produce them causes a wide disturbance which nobody can fail to understand."
