It required years of persistant work to
secure what was accomplished yesteaday
that is. the election of a United States
senator by a direct vote of the people. I
ts true, the legislature had the legal right
to set the will and intention of the people
aside and elect some other, but public'
opinion decreed otherwise and won. Oth
er states will follow Oregon and it will
not be many years until the constitution
will be amended and ths people thruout
the union will elect their senators by a
direct vote in fact. This should have been
brought about many years ago and would
have, had it not beenfor thesena'e, which
always talxed favorably but voted against.
The reason was plain. The majority of
the men who have held seats in that
house of Lords knew too well that in case
the people were permitted to choose their
law makers in the upper house that they
would stand little chance of succeeding
themselves. The large corporations and
trusts were opposed to a change from the
fact that they could control legislatures
much easier than they coild control the
The world doevmove rnd Oregon has
set the precedent that other states will
rapidly follow. Notwithstandmgtne years
that it required before Oregon wrenched
this power from the legislature, we can
hardly realize what has happened nor the
benefits that will follow.
