WITHOUT doubt no state in the

law as the one under which Oregon
nroDoscs to hold its coming elec

feature nboiit the law as a whole
and some or its propositions arc so
absurd that they appear ridiculous
when one examines the whole thing

in the Hue of a pledge is so ex
tremelv idiotic that lew of the

and those who do siun it never in
tend to keep the agreement. Ccr
tuinlv they will not keep the agree
iiieul if the state goes other than
their way. To sign such a state

the roster of liars will increase more
than the usual percent and that
there will be someone badly "let
down" when the finish comes goes
