Yesterday was Thanksgiving.
The day is sacred. The hearts
of men should be grateful for
the blessings that have been
theirs through the past year.
While the scanty harvests of
Europe are being ground under
the hoof beats and the wheels of
machines of death: while men by
thousands are dying daily on the
battle fields and in the hospitals
beyond the sea, and a pall of in
expressible sorrow hangs over
the broken hearts of whole em
pires : our people sing the an
thems of peape as they gather
their amnio harvests, as no sign
of war or of pestilence is in the
air or on the earth. Surely ours
should be a most grateful people.
Summaries of Oregon election
returns show that all of the
twenty-seven measures and
amendments on the allot affect
ing industries, taxation and in
vestments have been defeated.
The press or the state was
almost unanimously ngainst
these proposed laws- condemn
ing many of them as radical and
freak propositions 1w the result
is defeat of a vicious system oT
legislation. For some of theso
measures, campaign were made
and a great deal of money spent
in advertising them, and strong
organizations wore put back of
them, but tlio voters had made
up their minds to check the sys
tern. The .voters are aroused to
the fuct that this system is a
vicious abuse of the Initiative
and Referendum, and they have
wisely saved Direct Legislation
by destroying the abuse.
Many of the proponents of
these defeated laws and amend

in changed form. This has lieen
