Nome of Ila Dangerous Feat urea Out

Still the wheels grind. The initiative
and referendum baa been ground out and
displayed for analysis by the thinking
men of the nation. Rut this la not all;
now comes the "imperative mandate,"
a scheme atill more wild and irnpractic
able, more dangerous but lesa wildly ap
The Imperative mandate Is the name
applied by Its supporters to a proposed
change in the constitution which would
provl le that upon the petition of one-fifth
of the legal voters a seclal election munt
be called to vote upon candidates for an
olllce already occupied. For instance, if
there should be dinnatlsfaction with any
public ofllcer, one-fifth of the voters
could, by petition, compel the question
of his countimiance in office to be submit
ted to the peoplu, in order that they
might by their votes manifest their ap
proval or disapproval, ami electa new
officer if they ao pleuaed.
This scheme has some very good argil
uients to supMirt it, but it also pretenia
some features that do not commend it an a
wise measure. There is a prevailing op
inlfin that we already have too frequent
elections, that the business world is too
often thrown into a chaotic state by po
litical strife, that the expenditure of time,
money and labor incident to a campaign
and election, are at present too large for
a healthy state of eoc ely, and that an in
crease of the burdens of that nature would
be aa determined as unneceasary. The
assertion that the people should have in
themselves the power of reuiovirg an
iinsntlnfactory officer sounds well and ap
eals strongly to tbo impulsive and un
reasoning, who follow the lead of the ao-
called reformers. Hut when the second
thought is given the subject and it is
Viewed in all ita phases, ita imprscti
ability and Ineffectiveness ot the power,
if exercised, must be apparent.
To make a change in a county office,
for instance, would require rix or eight
months, at least, fiom the time of the
commission of an art meriting removal.
In order to avoid justice and secure the
probability of the change for the better,
more-time than that would be necesnarv.
After the commission of an act of which
the people disapprove, a petition must,
tie circuited and aigned, presented to
the proper officer, and if found in proper
form and signed by legal voters, a notice
of election must be given, primaries and
convention! must be held to nominate
candidates, an election must be held,
and the new officer, if one be elected,
must qualify. All this takes time, and
even if there should be no contest aa to
the legality of the various proceedings,
still in nine cases out of ten the official'a
term of office would have expired by the
time an election could be held.
It ia not usual for an officer to commit
wrongful acts or to be negligent in his
duties, during tbe first year of biaincum
bency, so that in very rare cases could
the officer be removed before the expira'
tion ot bis term.
It requires no effort of the imagination
to see bow very easily the imperative
mandate could be used by blackmailers.
A disappointed office-seeker or a disrepu
table newspaper publisher could make
charges against an officer that were false,
or even make rightful acts appear wrong
ful in order to get the requisite number
of signatures to a petition for an election.
Only a small part of the whole number
of voters being required to sign the peti
tion, the party in minority could keep

paign to keep down unfounded charges of

OKEUOX POIXTS THE WAY.
The Coming State Election Is of Na
The Philadelphia Press calls attention
to tbe fact that while Rhode Island
April next will bold tbe first election
tbia year for choice of state officers and
to the legislature, the first state election
to attract general attention will be held
in Oregon Jane 6. Tbe Press says :
The latter will be important for two
reasons. It will in the first place give
some indication of the drift of public
sentiment on the Pacific coaBt on the
currency question. The position of Ore
gon on this iBsue is not so clear as it
should be. There Is undoubtedly
strong silver sentiment there, but it was
held enough in check to permit the
state's electorial vote to be given to Mc-
Kiniey in 1890. It will be interesting to
learn from this year's election whether
the silver tendency has been increased
or diminished. Another important point
to be decided by the election is the polit
leal complexion of the next legislature,
which will be called npon to elect i
United States senator. The last legist
ture, which should have performed this
duly, failed to do it, and was prevented
by divisions from organising even. So
the duty will devolve npon the next leg
islature. As the republicans need every
vote in the senate they can get, tbe
party in Oregon cannot begin prepare

majority that will elect the right sort of a

THE CATTLE KINGS.
ONCE A GREAT POWER IN THE WEST,
THEY ARE NOW DISPLACED.
Small HUttM KalMirs Ut btin Oat the
Larger On Big Knn(n ood Water
Holes Penned In How tbe Bonanza
tattle OutflU Made Enormous Profit.
The great cattle ranges of western
Korth Dakota and Montana, where for
nearly 20 years, tbe bonanza cattle out-
lit nave ncld complete sway, and where
cattle bave roamed the vast prairies at
will, like tbe buffalo a quarter of a cen
tury ago, are passing out of existence.
Tbe destbknell of the large cattle
torn pan les bas been sounded by tbe in
numerable settlers who bave taken up
vacant government land in tbe great
grazing region, built "shanties" in tbe
vicinity of every natural spring and
water bole, fenced in thousand of acres
of grazing land and driven the immense
herd of the bonanza cattlemen from
place to place, until there la no place
left for tbem to go. All tbe years that
tbe vast prairies of the west bave re
mained onaettled bave been worth mil
lions to tbe cattle princes. Hundreds of
thousands of cattle bave been imported,
placed npon tbe ranges at a cost not to
excd $19 a bead for tbe 2-year-old
steera, allowed to roam at will for two
years, at an average animal cost not to
exceed f 3, and then sold in the market
at Chicago for an average price of 15
to (50. Tbe free ranges offered by the
million of acre of nnsnrveyed and on
occupied government land bave been
turned into millions of Sollars in cold
casb by tbe cattle kings, but the tide of
immigration to tbe west bas sealed
their fate and they are ready to go.
For 20 years nearly a vast region ly
ing along tbe western part of North Da
kota and tbe eastern strip of Montana
measuring 100 miles in w idth and 150
miles in length bas been entirely given
np to tbe interests of tbe cattle kings.
Thons:andB of bead of cattle have been
grazed year after year, coantless train
loads of beeves bave been shipped to
market and millions of dollars have
gone into tbe pockets of tbe cattlemen.
Pierre Wiebanx, the Montana stock
man, said to be tbe largest single owner
of cattle in tbe United States, bas num
bered bis total possessions of cattle at
60,000 bead. Tbe Btrry-Boice Cattle
company has owned and grazed each
year not fewer than 80,000 head, and
there are nnmerons companies that bave
essayed to keep on tbe ranges an annual
total of from 10,000 to 85,000 head.
Tbe vastness of the business of tbese
cattle companies way be estimated from
the fact tuat tbe annual shipments for
the post few years bave been from 3,000
to 0,000 bead for each of tbe large com
panies. Tbe annual profits of the larger
companies, after deducting the original
cost of tbe cattle and tbe cost of their
maintenance npon the ranges, are from
(75,000 to (150,000 all that from the
tree ranges of the government, given
without taxation or any return what
To understand the situation that bas
existed up to the present time it must
be remembered that this broad region
which has been given np to the interests
of the cattle growers haa not been in
tersected by a fence, disturbed with a
plow or graced with a field of grain up
to a few short yean ago nothing for
miles but short nutritious grass, which
cured on the prairie, as clover in a stack,
and aerved equally well for food in dead
of winter as in the beat of summer.
Forth upon this vast area every spring
have been poured streams of gaunt, ill
shaped, long horned and lean ribbed
southern cattle. Left to roam at will,
they have thriven and waxed fat, until
in two years they bave become sleek
and fat and comely to the eye. During
all that period they bave been as free
and un trammeled as were ever the buf
falo. But at the close of tbe maturing
period they have been rounded up,
driven to railroad stock shipping pena
and loaded upon the cars for a trip to
market Their places are taken by fresh
importations from tbe south. And so,
year after year, bave the processes been
repeated, until the profits that were
known to have accrued from the busi
ness bave tempted thousands of small
holders of cattle to settle in this region
and engage in the beef business on a
The presence of these smaller opera
tors is the inevitable doom of the cattle
kings. Their vast herds are no longer
allowed to roam the ranges undisturb
ed. Tbe bhi all ranohmen have bcilt
fences and inclosed the water holes.
The prairies have been made to yield to
the mowing machine, and the former
free grass has come to be cut and stack
ed aa hay, until the ranges in many
places are bare of feed for the herds of
the larger companies. These conditions
are responsible for the closing out of
the cattle princes. There is no longer
room for their thousands of beeves. Fif
teen thousand cattle, the property of
one of the larger operators, succumbed
to the severity of the weather for no
other reason than that the ranges had
been denuded of grass by the numerous
waller ranohmen. This was a warn
ing that the most obstinate must heed.
And so the cattle companies that for
merly numbered their possessions by
the thousands of head may now number
them easier in hundreds. The small
ranchman is the man upon whom the
market of the future must rely for its
beef. St. Paul Pioneer Press.
