mid recall mere fnd and people's gov
ernment psiicdo reform, Dr. Herman
llrnuor, director of tlio bureau of

sion of the University Commonwealth
conference today that mere form of
government is temporary, but that the
sentiment of the people belaud it ia
tho controlling factor.
"Today," ho said, "tlio most hon
est publiu servant is least appreciated
and is most apt to ho turned out of
office. Our legislation is n mass of
hodgo-podgo uncertainty. Why
should people voto when no one knows
what ho is voting about! Universal
suffrage in itself is no remedy. Why
extend voting principles by tho ini
tiative, tho referendum, tho commis
sion form of government these sys-
tentH aro luds. tlicro is no more
mischief than than tho belief that
(lu) mere voto of the people will solve
the problems. It is not that people
cannot bo trusted but that they are
not competent through lack of in
formation." Tho speaker explained that the
problem before tho miinloipnlity,
state or nation is tho education of
thu peonlo and the creating of nit
interest in government."

Governor Sulzer Declares That Power
of Wealth and Special Interests
Making Final Struggle In Empire
State Where They Are Strongest.
Executive Says Crooked Alliances
Must Cease letween Politicians
and Ilfl Business.
ALHANY, N. Y May 16. Declar
ing that tho power ot wealth and spe
cial interests Is greater In New York
than In any other stato and thai
theso Interests aro making their lust
stand here, Gorcrnor Snlzer declared
his tight for dlroct primaries In a
ypcclal statcmont prepared for th
United Press. The governor Mid tho
"powers'' of special aa,d pelf are sure
to be overthrown by the power of an
aroused and righteous public senti
ment." Tho statement follews:
(Hy William Sulzer, Governor of
Now York.)
It Is gratifying to know that tho
movement for statewldo primaries In
New York has aroused public inter
est throughout the nation, becauso
this is n fundamental reform upon
which must depend many other re
forms demanded by tho great wave of
a democratic sentiment sweeping
over tho country.
Unless tho people are permitted to
nomiaato candidates for public office
they cannot elect such public iwrv
aau a they may desire to make and
execute such laws as are demanded
by present day conditions.
CauruH Caue of TroHMe.
Every day I see accumulating evi
dence of tho truth which I stated lu
my recent message, when I pointed
out that those who would subvert
the powers of government to personal
advantago and to the advantage ot
public servlco corporations and oth
ers seeking privileges, find great op
portunities to carry on this nefarious
work through tho adroit and skilful
manipulation, of our system ot party
caucuses and political conventions.
Disgraceful secret alliances be
tween big business interests nnd
crooked politics must cease.
The power of wealth and the spe
cial Interests Is greater in New York '
than in any othor state, because in
Now York is centered tho groat fin
ancial Interests ot the nation. Most
of theso interests are sound, legiti
mate, honest, but some ot them are
Illegitimate and it is the Interests
last mentioned which are fighting
the reforms which I am advocating.
Let tlio Tcoplo Itule.
The spirit of true democracy Ii
summed up in the slogan, "Let tha
people rule. They cannot rule until
thoy obtain a successful method o'
operating tho nominating machinery
of political parties. New York is ono
ot tho, last states in tho union to
