Don't forget the old man
with the fish on his back.
For , nearly thirty years he
has been traveling around the
world, and' is still traveling,
bringing health and comfort
wherever he goes. .
To the consumptive he
brings the strength and flesh
he so much needs.
To all weak and sickly
children he gives rich and
To thin and pale persons
he gives new firm flesh and
rich red blood.

old man with the fish are now
grown up and have children
of their own.
He stands for Scott's Emul

It's shameful when y-iutb fails to show
proper respect for old age, but just the
contrary in the case of Dr. King's New

old age. Dyspepsia, Jaundise, Fever,
constipation all yield to this perfect pill.

Referendum is Valid.
Salem, Or., Dec. 21. (Special). The
Supreme Court today decided the case
of Kadderly vs. Portland, upholding
the validity of the referendum amend
ment and declaring that it 1b the, prov
ince of the Legislature and not of the
conrts to determine when an emergency
exists. The initiative and referendum
amendment is therefore a part of the
constitution. Under the construction
placed upon its language by the Su
preme Court, the Legislature can place
anv act in effect immediately bv declar
ing that the preservation of tbeublic
health, peace or safety requires that the
act shall take effect atone. The opin
ion in the case was written by Justice
R: S. Bean. It fills 36 pages of type
written legal cap paper, and discusses at
lengtn all the questions involved ana
quotes from a large number of authori
It was quite generally expected that
the decision would be handed down to
day and a number of members of the
Legislature were in the court room wheu
the court convened at 12 o'clock. The
'tiMainii will he nf gome effect on leeiS'
laiion contemplated at this session, for,
under this deciaion. there can be no ones
tion as to the power of the Legislature
to put a remedial tax law into effect at
once and to, correct in the same manner
the defects in other laws.
CIRCUIT COURT NOT ENTIRELY AFFIRMED.
While the Supreme Court affirmed
the decree of the lower court, it did not
place its decision npon the same grounds
as did the lower court. The Circuit
Court held that the referendum was not
legally adopted, and that the legislature
bad the power under the old constitu
tion to put the Portland charter into ef
fect at once. The Supreme Court holds
that the amen lment was legally adopt
ed, and that under the new form of
emereencv clause the Legislature can
declare an emergency which will be
