The comlnit election 'will be from
one standpoint, the most critical In
the history of Oregon. All the other
states In the union will look to the
.election returns on the second of June
to see how the Initiative and referen
dum works In practice. If the results
show that this new method of leginla
tlon leads to safe and conservative
law making, that the safety of essen
tlal state Interests and Institutions are
thereby safeguarded, we may look to
the rapid adoption of direct legislation
throughout the country. But If the
returns show that the majority of the
people are too Indifferent to express
themselves at the polls, and that Irre
sponsible agitators can at any time
strike down and cripple a state Instltu-
tlon as certain Irresponsible agitators tamp No. 700, Woodmen of the

should take notice of this move on the
pan or rne Danes and also have a
cherry exhibit. As fine cherries as
were ever grown anywhere are grown
In the Grande Ronde valley. The
jrrowers are willing to co-operate with,
the business men and make Cherry
day at La Grande an event to be re

the business men hold a meeting and

a complete success of La Grande's
first cherry day.
A petition has been filed with the
county clerk of Malheur county, to
enable the people of that county to de
cide as to whether they will have
open saloons any longer. The peti
tion calls for a vote on the county as
a whole, so If the majority vote dry,
the whole county will be dry; and If
the county votes wet the precincts
which vote dry will be dry, while the
wet precincts may retain the saloon.
