THE OREGON LEGISLATURE
Tbe tear approach of - the
meeting' of the Oregon legis
lature ttartes the inquiry "what
is the work this body of law
tnaken assembled to do?" . ..
' a The answer to that queotion
involves a thorough uuderatahd
ingofthe powers that pertain
to the. law mking branch of
the government of any elate or
orgained community. Broadly
speaking the flaw making
branch of any government can
make any law or prescribe any
role of action, for the people, to
obey and, affix penalties for die
obedience that it sees fit.
la? absolute monarchies the
aeoiaren win or tne King or
emperor is the law of the land
In Olagarchies, like Qreese and
Home, the will of the ruling
class as ezpreased by its assem
blies or 8enates, was the laws
The theory of our government
is that the will of tbo people is
the law but to avoid the neces
sity of the whole people gather
ingin ,one huge congregation
and passing Jaws,' the devise
used ' of selecting a few men
from the several district or
counties to meet at stated times
and theoretically as represent
atives of -the-r people to make
laws, in their name, which all
must obey." ' '
0 The power to make laws for
the . 450,000 people in Oregon
has been confered upon a aen
ate composed of 80 persons and
House of Representatives in
which there are CO members.
These two bodies constitute
the Oregon Legislature and by
virtue of the power confered
upon them i by the eonstitution
of the state any measure that
receives the sanction of a majo.
rity of each house, and the ap
proval of the governoa becomes
a law and a two third efferma
Uve vote makes a meesure law,
despite of the veto pi the gov
ernor. The state constitutions
Published daily except Sunday
restricts the power of the legis
latives in some respects bet
subjects to the limitation of the
constitution by prescribed by
tbe : constitution of the United
Statef, the Oregon legislature
can prescrioe any rule of action
for tbe people to obseive tbat it
aees fit to promulgate however
detrimental tc the well being of
tbe people or obnoxious to their
will or repugnant to their sense
of night. '
Tbe legislature by the laws it
passes determines and fixes
limits to the eoet of maintaining
Bute, County, and expenses.
Some 1 lea of the cost of
maintaining the State may be
had front the last Report of the
Secretary of State 'on page 12 of
the Secretary Report is recapi
lutas, gives the Receipts and
desbursments of rut nine . the
State from October 1st 1902 to
Sept SO 1904 (2 .years) .thus
"Total Receipts 15,485,799,12
"Total Disbursements $4,917 6( ?
iThe expense of running the
the counties of Oregon:ompied
by the Secretary .of. State for
the year 1903 (the latest - publi
shed) aggregated 11,106,385 34
except for roads and highways
Union Gountie's expense except
for roads in 1903 was $47,090,23
The last legislature ' appropri
ated $2,653,717,70 to carry on
the State for tbe two yearn 1903
and 1904 and it is probable the
apprbprations for the ensuing
two year! will call for a similar
amount and tbat the tax levy
will be about the same as now
for State purposes alone.
Tbe Secretary reports the ag
gregate cash on hand September
30th 1900 as $568,189,65, ' .
v.As no money can be collected
from the people by taxation fees
orliscense to support the State
Counties or municipalites with
eut a law authorising the same,
and as the legislature is the only
body that can makes a law it is
manifest that there is plenty of
wcrk for the legislature.
Several Denver women . have
been arrested for forging elect
ion returns. ' Their defense is
that it is the right of women
