Wheat According to the Oregonian
Lose. of this morning, half a mil
lion acreB of winter wheat
have been resown in Oregon, Washing
ton and Idaho, the result of the Febru
aiy frosts, which came down with a kil
ling effect on a number of unprotected
lacalities in the three itatea. Umatilla
county alone was damaged to the extent
of 100,000 acres. Walla Walla county
was still harder hit. Eareka flat, which
produces more big crops than any other
section in Washington, was practically
all reseeded, and there is a big winter
wheat district in the Palouse that will
this year be planted in spring grain af
ter the fall wheat was wiped out en
tirely or left in such struggling patches
that it was drilled over and resown.
Conflicting reports have been coming in
from the wheat districts since the cold
weather nearly two months ago, but it
was not until the last few days of
warmer weather that the full ext'-nt of
the damage was learned, and some
fields which had appaently come
throngh the winter all right are now be
ing reseeded. In Oregon the greater
pait of the damage is con lined to Uma
tilla county. The exact elF'Ct of this
damage cannot be determined until af

Initiative and R fer eni'utn.
The Initiative and Referendum
amendment to the constitution on which
the people vote next June is really very
simple. It gives the legislature the new
power to refer any law to the people, to
take effect only if it is approved by a
majority vote. It also leaves with the
legislature power to declare that a law
for the immediate pieservation of the
public peace, health or safety shall take
effect tiie day it is passed. This would
Include the general appropriation bill,
salaries of public officers, and similar j
fixed charges of government. Any oth-1
er law, including practically all special
appropriations, must be referred to the
people when it i demanded by five per
cent of the legal voters (which would be
about 4500 signers at this time,) if the
petition is Died within ninety days after
the last day of the legislature. A peti
tion for the Referendum cannot be for
more than one law. A separate petition iB
necessary for each law on which a vote
of the people is demanded .
Any proposed law must be submitted
to the people, independent of the legis
lator.; and the governor, if it is peti .
lioued for by eight per cent ot thevot-'
ers, which would require about seven I
thousand signers in Oregon. This pti-1
tion must be filed with the Secretary of j
fctaie not less than four months before '
the general election at which it is to be
voted on . This Is the Initiative.
The principal use of the Initiative ia to
allow a hearing before the people to the
agitators and advocates of new ideas in
government, and thus do away with the
excuse for new political parties. It is a
cheap and convenient method of testing
the p ipularity and growth of alleged re
forms. 'I he experise to the public treasury, if
the amendment is adopted, will be but
a trihV only the cost of printing the
questions on the olhcial ballot. No
special elections can be had unless or
dered by the legislature. The whole ex
pense of getting up the petitions falls on
the signers, the p.iblic treasury pays
none of it
