These great institutions stand at the head our educational system and stimulate the Young men and the Young women the Stote to attain a High education. Their estimates will be Laid before you and i recommend that you Deal very liberally with them. Reform school. The Reform school for boys at Lansing under the Able management superintendent Gower is doing a great work. A however recommend that the name be changed so As to a out the word a Reform a ror the reason that it indicates punishment for an offence. It does no Good and the roles the institution can As Well be enforced without the name As with it.

Look to their welfare after they have been placed out although course Many them Are bad and will have to be kept s Long time ret there Art very Many excellent ones among Lem. Industrial school Fob girls. The Industrial school for girls St Adrian needs some careful attention and consideration. This same Rule will school about just been recommend a very great wrong connected with this institution should be righted at once. While there Are very Many bad girls in the school there Are quite a Large number so fall ones and some larger ones too who Are sent there simply because they have no friends they arc charged with a vagrancy a and with being Quot wayward a any thin to come under the letter the Law to get rid the care them. No girl Oan go to that school without carrying away More less a Talut which affects her character aha will do so through life As it is purely a reformatory and the innocent class referred to should be takes away immediately. 1 deem it my duty to say concerning this school with All deference to the Good ladies who make up a majority the Board that i think it would be for the decided Benefit the institution if its business affairs had More men management. I also believe it would be better for the girls if none but mothers and Good ones too had the Cate them. I think the institution ought to have for its Bead a Man and wife. I wish however to distinctly say that i believe All people connected with it Are acting to the Best their ability in conducting it. State Public school the cold water school i can not say too much in Praise. In twelve Yean it has received nearly 2,900 children and placed in Homes Over 1.900 them. Its management in my indy ment is As near perfection As possible which is largely due to its Able superintendent . Foster. The prisons. The state prison at Jackson is an a old trap and ought to be thoroughly overhauled. Warden Hatch has filled his office ably and Well but labors under great disadvantage account its condition. I Trust you will give this your careful consideration. The Ionia House correction is in excellent condition and no prison can have an Abler Man to conduct its affairs than Warden Watkins. The state prison for the upper Peninsula has filed its annual report which is submitted. I recommend the request its Pard for further Aid be granted. I have visited it during the past month and find the work construction progressing in a most satisfactory manner. The site is a Beautiful one. And the surroundings All that could be desired for the state institution. The schools for the Blind and deaf and dumb Are doing a great work and i recommend them our cordial support. The in8anr. The four insane asylums have amp Ade exhaustive reports their conditions and doings. It will be noticed that requests Are made for improvements for the Purchase land and for the building cottage All which i approve except i recommend that whatever moneys Are expended by the Pontiac and Kalamazoo asylums shall be taken from their surplus fund and no appropriation from the state asked for. The Asylum at traverse City is in construction and Man age meat All that could be desired. The Asylum for insane criminals St Ionin is ably managed Bat its location overlooking the prison Yard As it does is Moet unfortunate. I Hope it will not be enlarged but that r May be turned into a much needed prison for women and a new Asylum where ample lands Oan be obtained May be erected for the criminal insane. I am very glad to be Able to inform you that and restraints have been almost in the state. Total Cash received h government $96,069.0�. 1 constitutional amendments.

I Hope it will not be left for the soldiers the state to furnish this Money As they did their part upon the Field. The sub bar court. I recommend to you that a Law be passed increasing the number judge the supreme court to five. Official salaries l it seems to is the tin has come when this i great state with All its wealth should pay it a officers such salaries As will support them Attr Long their official terms. I also room mend that i the members the legislature be paid a fixed a salary 1600 per term. I Michigan a srmicnntrnn1al. A a the stat Centennial commission appointed a by act the last legislature held to Celebration St Lansing. June 15, i860, and was Tel every Sway a Success. The commission also has com i me need an historical work appointing the Hon. Is. D. Bingham Lansing As historian who a has accomplished very much during the past a year. Ii commend an appropriation 12,000 it annul to Durrf this work a live to it k sanitary commission. A the live Stock sanitary commission also a created by act the last legislature have a been indefatigable in their efforts to exclude a Texas fever and pleuropneumonia from the a Sute thus far with Success.

I recommend that you urge upon Lour members Congress the necessity the a a enactment a Law that shall forever forbid a another one that race from Landing in the s a country. We have no use for them and the a sooner stringent Laws Are passed prohibiting a them from coming Here the better it will be a for the country. A a. A a the mormon question ought to be settled at once. Polygamy should it strangled now and a i Hope you will urge our me fibs Congress a to take immediate item to a much desired land a disgrace to the nation _. I. A the one involving the largest number occurred Valley during the summer in the Saginaw a 1885. Upon requisitions the respective sheriffs Saginaw and Bay counties troop were called out and it is with Greet pleasure i am Able to state that although a great loss in wages and stoppage in business was caused by the strike no lives were lost property destroyed. _ prisons and prisoners. I believe in View the fact that so Many people Are imprisoned who Are not the criminal class it would be Wise inst and humane to pass s Law establishing a tto Ket leave system Tobe guarded course with every possible restriction to be operated much the same As in the state Ohio and when it is thought a prisoner will Reform if Given an Opportunity. I believe that very Little is accomplished in prison in Way mgt Reform convicts. It is a great pity that we have no really intermediate Grade prison where convicts not the Crim Inal class can be kept Sepe rate from this worst element. Mortgage foreclosures. Under foe statute authorizing the foreclosure real estate mortgages by advertisement very great injun time May be and i believe often it done. The statute should be so amended u to require personal service a copy the notice the owner the property when known shown record and foe person in actual Possession the property. It is astonishing that the Law should have been suffered to continue in this objectionable condition so Long. Railroad legislation. Many Bills were introduced in the last legislature that by their terms were antagonistic to the railroads the state. I am no advocate the right a Railroad against the right individuals but both should stand an equal footing. By an examination the report the commissioner railroads you will racer Tain that the average local rate per ton i51 ire get hauled in the state Michigan last year is 92-100 1 cent per ton per mile in put the Case a Lite More plainly it is the haul a Quot Quot a ton freight which would make a we goo Load for a Farmer s team 100 Miles Forit cents 28 cents to take the same Load to Market a distance 26 Miles. We can therefore see How cheaply railroads Are doing our business. Added to this the railroads Are obliged to incur the expenses loading unloading such merchandise. The railroads the Sute Are paying for labor alone the Salat hhshphconn., and were Foat Rojad by fit Sathal 19th, the losses aggregating $135,000.

It is clearly demonstrated that property paying specific tax has increased in value As rapidly As other property if Brot to local taxation but there has not been a corresponding increase in the specific taxes Olle Eupil mate this Steps to it is a blot upon our Flag the inaugural message. The following Are the most important portions 9f governor Luce a inaugural address he commences by a reference to the admirable school system the state and to the Pride taken in the University. Other state institutions Are then mentioned seriatim and foe legislature referred to foe accompanying reports the officer in charge them for detail Eden formation As to their condition and needs. The Asylum for foe insane and the institution for the deaf and dumb ask for appropriations to meet the growing demands upon their accommodations. In foe Case the first it the recommended foil the Grant be made 8tatb institutions. The local foe Asylum for insane criminals at Ionia in connection with foe House correction was very unfortunate in every respect the Board asks for an appropriation �0,000 for a Etton Siofu the build no. Though i to present capacity is Ettli to overflowing sincerely Hope that fio Money will be appropriated for an Extension foe building where now located. These if mates must be cared for by the state and while it can Fiot be done at the Ordinary asylums an institutions should and ought to be provided for them at an Early Day at some place removed from prison Walls. The whole subject prison management in All its bearings and connections til claim and i doubt not will receive foe most careful consideration at your hands. The question prison labor is attracting More general attention than Ever before. What to do with our convicts is a problem yet Only partially solved. That they most work is almost universally conceded. Their health future welfare humanity and Economy All unite in demanding this and ustice to the free workers foe state demands than foe depressing effect their labor upon free labor and its products should be reduced to foe lowest minimum. How to find employment for foe prisoner so As not to compete with free labor to foe least extent the the question that confronts prison management As Well As legislation. There the a widespread feeling existing against contracting this labor and favouring foe employment prisoners Sute a count and which has been suggested and to some extent adopted in the Sute. If this plan is generally adopted it will require heavy appropriations for implements and machinery and for a working capital for material. Again should this plan be pursued it is not easy to see How Competition with free labor will be removed much reduced. Nor will it be sound policy to employ them in non productive pursuits because foe support the prison would place a Burden upon those we would be glad to Aid. Nor could such non productive employments fit them for the Active duties life when they again become free men. But in whatever manner the convicts Are employed either by contract 8tate account it should be done so As to reduce Competition with free workers and affect foe Price the product his toil to the least possible extent. That foe Contr act system is to be abandoned sooner later seems apparent and just what shall take its place is a question challenging your Best thought and Wisest action. The Board asks for an appropriation to Purchase land adjoining the House correction. As the inmates can work the land its Purchase seems advisable. The state prison at Jackson asks for Large appropriations for improvements and repairs. Its financial management has been most excellent. Its requirements will be largely governed by the policy to be pursued in relation to convict labor. The tendency the proposed plan will be to take foe management the prison out the hands the people and place it in the hand a Board. This i do not believe to be a Wise policy. Following out the same policy a recommendation is also made that the construction a in management All Jalla in foe state be taken from local authorities and placed in the hands one supervisory Board. Such might prove to be a Good policy but my Strong Faith to foe intelligence and virtue foe people leads me to doubt the propriety the Experiment. Appropriations asked for. Below will be found foe amount appropriations made to the several institutions for 1885 and 1866. And foe amount asked at this session so far As i have been Able to ascertain for the years 1887 and 1888 we can not afford to impair cripple the usefulness any our institutions. The educational charitable and penal must be provided for but foe most scrutinizing care must be exercised in making appropriations. No Money ought to be appropriated except when a Clear necessity exit its use. A a for a is m. I m.

It is believed that a Large number our Citi Zens realizing the evils intemperance desire to express their convictions in relation to the question an amendment to foe Constitution prohibiting foe manufacture and Sale intoxicating liquors. And it is earnestly hoped that in compliance with this sentiment you will at an Early Day adopt such a joint Resolution.

This was judicious 8ugars not above no. 18 dutch Standard but the governor can not escape the obligation imposed upon him by foe Constitution and the Power and authority rest. I firmly with him believe that for free exercise foe pardoning Power encourage crime. It removes one element from foe certainty punishment. After giving much thought to foe subject i have concluded that it will be my duty to withhold the executive clemency unless evidence not produced foe trial is presented tending to show that the applicant was not guilty evidence that will mitigate foe offence. Bogus Cigar labels. Mow lovers the imported Havana Are liable to be deceived. San Francisco Call there is a Branch business in our midst which very few our innumerable smokers have any Conception. Every one has a fancy for imported cigars say what they will and when the Box is opened see How carefully your connoisseur looks at the Label round the cigars and satisfies himself that he is receiving an extra Fine smoke. But he does not know that any one has a right to use an imported Label and that therefore although a popular name is the band he May get a much inferior Cigar after All there Are one two men in this City who for from seven to ten Days out every three four months make from $8 to $10 per Day buying up old labels from the retail Cigar stores. The method pursued is this when a bundle is sold away goes the yellow silk tape into a Box behind the counter All 4 brands alike Only course some Are preferable. By and by round comes the dealer. A How Many have you got a he makes no secret his business and they Are turned out the counter for him to count measure and separate. A regalia a that a the most called for Brand. pays from one fourth to a full cent each for these and Sells them again to wholesale Cigar makers for 1>4 cents apiece. Nineteen inches will go around any bundle cigars the smallest labels if a Quantity one bread Are Worth Only 12j4 cents per Hundred and sell from. 25 cents to $1.53 per Hundred All according to Brand. Now Here a a whole Heap them All sorts and sizes and the dealer Only pays 15 cents for the lot. But although the business is still carried by a few the continual new advertisements Home manufacture have decreased the profits the Stogos Cigar Label dealers. Many store do not even take the trouble to keep them for him whereas three years ago he could buy from every store for l i to 2 seifts apiece and sell them again from $2.50 and $3 per Hundred still a few will Hoard them up occasionally and a dealer in this City last week got 10,000 labels one kind and paid 35 Cento per Hundred for them.
