Says Socialism Threatens
Unless Progressive Legis-
lation Is Enacted.
Indianapolis Ind. Jan. 9. "Unless
progressive legislation is enacted the
people some uay. will open up the cul-
de-sac even though the opening may i
lead representative government over
a precipice Into pure socialism or pa-
ternalism" said governor Marshall in
his message to the Indiana legislature
"Representative government does
not mean that present day conditions
cannot be remedied. Upon the contrary
progressive legislation may be enacted
with no disturbance to the checks and
balances of our system of government.
The last general assembly recog-
nizing our unfortunate condition with
reference to the amendment of the state
constitution ordered presented for
adoption or rejection by the people at
the election in 1912 a new constitution.
An action was brought to enjoin and
restrain the governor and the other
members of the state board of election
commissioners and the secretary of
state from putting the question of
adoption or rejection upon the ballot.
The litigation resulted in a permanent
injunction by the Indiana supreme
court upon a divided opinion three
members of the court being in favor of
the injunction and two against it.
"With utmost respect for the majori-
ty of the supreme court I felt that it
had usurped the functions of the legis-
lative and executive branches of gov-
ernment; that the sheriff of the court
would have a rather interesting time in
getting possession of my body and pun-
ishing me for contempt; and that such
decisions gave greater impetus to the
recall of judges and decisions than all
the opinions of mere laymen touching
the usurpations of the courts. Yet I
realized I might be wrong.
"Though believing that it was mak-
ing of the supreme court the only
branch of government which we had
still 1 felt that while there was a pos-
sibility of a judicial review. I should
not set myself up as a judge and resist
by force of arms what to me was an
encroachment of the judiciary upon my
constitutional rights. I was wholly
unwilling to permit my personal views
to result in anarchy. I believed that
an orderly procedure with respect for
the court however little respect I might
hold for its opinion was the one for
me to pursue. I felt assured that the
supreme court of the United States
would not punish me for trying to be a
law-abiding oitizen by refusing to de-
cide the great question involved in
this controversy upon the theory that
they are not judicial but political in
"The question has'nof passed beyond
the mere domain of party politics. The
majority opinion leaves the state in
doubt as to whether it can even call a
constitutional convention and as to
whether our fathers did not foreclose
upon posterity its right to alter and re-
form Its system of government. It
also leaves involved a far greater de-
termination that of the right of the
court to strip the legislature and ex-
ecutive of their constitutional rights
and to set itself up not as a coordinate
but as a supreme branch of govern-
ment. "In accordance with these views I
have sued out a writ of error to the
supreme court of the United States with
confidence that that court will assume
jurisdiction and decide the questions j
will not dismiss the case and tell me
that if I thought I was right. I should
haTUtaJly disregarded the decision
of the-supreme court defied Its au-
thority thrown its sheriff out of my
window called out the militia to de
fend my position and submitted the-
question to the people regardless of
Governor Marshall's message con-
tained a 'warning "against the subtle
influences of the lobbyist" and rec-
ommended that all bills be reported
out of committees within four days.
Gov. Marshall suggests among other
things an Inheritance tax law legisla-
tion to prohibit stock watering and to
"'protect unwary against investing their
money in that which is not property
but mere promise in schenies which are
ordinarily known to the business world
as 'blue sky;' " immediate enactment
of a workman's compulsory compensa-
tion act: anti-loan shark legislation:
strengthening of laws against sale and
use of cocaine and opium-; revocation of
liquor licenses upon third conviction of
their holders; ratification of proposed
amendment for popular election of sen.

"Washington D. C. Jan. 9. The ox-
tent of the "immunity bath" was
brought today before the supreme court
for determination with arguments as
to whether Charles P. Heike. former
secretary of the American Sugar Re-
fining company was entitled to im-
munity from the prosecution for con-
spiracy to perpetuate sugar weighing
frauds against the customs. Heike wa"a
convicted on this charge and sentenced
It was shown that Heike testified
about the affairs of the compaijy at a
grand jury Investigation as to whether
his "company was violating the Sher-
man law. Government lawyers replied
that this Immunity extended only to
prosecutions for violating the inter
state commerce acts and not to a prose-
cution for conspiracy to defraud the
government out of customs.
