It i contended that under the initiative,
neither the elate legislature doi the
people themaelvea under the initiative
can prooM an aniendment to the con
stitution while any other such amend
ment in pending either in the legislature
or liefore tlie people.
'"I'he iietion that lias been rained at

June, will in no way retard our work to
MM'iire the enactment into a law through

ating fcnaleni," xaid W. ri. U'Ken, of the
Direct 1'ruiiHry Nominations league to
day. Mr. U'Ken lays that the Direct Nom
inations league is not in a position to
tent the iueH(ion that has been raised as
to the powers ol the people In propoiog
constitutional amendments under the
initiative since the only matter of legis
lation in which the league i interested
at this time is in a Direct l'rlmary Law.
lie predicts that the new question re
garding the righu of the people as to
constitutional amendments will have to
be determined in the courts.
It ia argued by Mr. U'Ken that no
question can logically exist as to the
power of the eople in the matter of pro
posing amendments. He asserts that
the language ol the initiative and refer
endum amendment prescribes these
power, and in support thereof quotes
from the amendment as follows: "The
legislative authority of the state shall be
vested in a legislative assembly, consist
ing of a senate and a house of represen
tatives, but the people reserve to them
selves the power to propose laws and
amendments to the constitution and to
enact or reject the same at the polls, in
dependent of the legislative asaembly
" Arguing on Uiis basis, Mr.
U'Ken maintains that through the initi
ative is vested iu the people an emer
gency power that is entirely independent
of the legislature and that proceedings
for the amendment of the state's consti
tution may be pendlug In the legislature
and aleo by initiative set at the same
time without in any way conflicting with
the constitution. Under toe strict inter
pretation ol the initiative and referen
dum amendment, Mr. U'Ken takes tbe
position that one or more constitutional
amendments may be pending under the
initiative, independent of the stats legis
lature, and no infringement follow to the
constitution or the rights conferred by

Dairy Industry of Oregon Attracts
One of the largest and most completely
equipped creameiies in the world is to be
establinheit in Portland. It is to have a
capacity of L'O.OtK) pounds of butter a day,
and special ellor!? are to be made to de
velop the dairy industry of Oregon. It
will be twenty times as large as any now
in Portland, much larger than any in
Oregon and, in fact, the largest west of
Lincoln, Neb. Cream will be shipped
into the city from a radius of 800 miles
until the dairying industry has been suf
ficiently developed to supply the de
mand from this state. Every product of
the creamery will be supplied from this
plant. It is to be established by the
Ilazelwood Cresmery Company, which j
now has plants operating in Spokane,
Lincoln, Topeka and Sioux Cily. Tin
plant in Sioux City is the largest in the
The Heywood building, on Fourth and
Oak streets, has been leased by the com
pany and will be fitted for the local plant.
The lease was closed yesterday and the
work of fitting the building for the recep
tion of the machinery will commence at
once. It is expected that the plant will
be ready for operation by March 1. It
will have a capacity of 20,000 pounds of
butter a day at lirst, but the machinery
will be so installed that it may be in
creased to 40,000 at any time that the de
OKKOON GREAT DAISY COfNTKY.
The dairy possibilities afforded by tbe
grasi-oovered country ol Oregon have at
tracted the attention of the promoters of
the company. They believe there is a
great field here lor the production of
dairy articles, and that the establish
ment of a creamery will stimulate this
industry until there will be sufficient
cream produced in the state to supply
one of tbe largest plant in the world.
The cream will all be pastureized as
soon as it is secured from the cow and
then will be shipped to Portlaud for
manufacture into butter, ice-cream and
other creamery products. Contracts
bar already been an ads with dairy maa
as far as 800 miles Bay to supply cream
for this plant.
HKKRlOKKATOa CAKS TO SEIKO CBKAM.
This will be a decided change Irom
the methods of the existing creameries,
all of which draw their snpply of cream
from their immediate neighborhoods, and
it necessitates a radical change in meth
ods. Ass'xm as contracts now nnder
negotiation fur a large supply of cream
from sll points along the Willamette
valley have been closed, a line of refrig
erator cars will be put on the railroad
to bring the cream to Portland.
BeaU'es the precaution taken to keep
the milk and cream pure and sweet while
in tranait from the dairy to the creamery,
the plant will tie fitted with the latest
and most improved machinery. An ap

of pasteurizing the air of the butler de

Will Tbavel is Boat. Judge Q. E.
Hayes, of Gladstone, says that he in
tends to have a rowboat built in which
be will travel from his home to this city
instead of making the trip on the electric
cai s as at present. The reason for this
is that he believes the trestle north of
town to be unsafe, and rather than risk
bis life or that of his family further, he
will make tbe journey to' and from his
home by water. Since tbe O. W. P. &
Ry Co. abandoned their work of filling
the trestle, tbe structure has been con
sidered unsafe by those travelling over it
and who are familiar with the situation.
Tbe structure is very old and many in
this city now travel over the Southern
Pacific in journeying to Portland. Other
residents continue to travel on the elec
tric car, but all who make daily use of
this means of transportation would feel
much safer if something was done to
strengthen this trestle.
Died of Pneumonia. Mrs. N. P. 6i
inond, aged 31 years, died Tuesday at
her home, near the Barclay school, of
pnuemonia. The deceased leaves a hus
band and a 4-months-old child. The
latter was also very ill from pneumonia
at the time of the mother's death, and it
was scarcely expected that it would sur
vive. Mr. Simond is a well-knovn em
ploye of the Willamette mill, and is fa
vorably known to a large number in
this city, who sympathize with him in
his deep attliction. Mrs- Simond was
an estimable woman.
Visitors View th Falls. The Ore
gon Water Power & Railway Company
ran out of l ortland to this city two spe
cial excursions Sunday that were largely
patronized by the delegates in attend
ance at tbe Livestock Association meet
ing in Portland. The visitors were es
corted to Canemah Park, where a splen
did view is offered of tbe Willamette
Falls, which are exceptionally beautiful
at this time of year because of the raise
in the stage of the Willamette.

Benefits op Organization. A short
time ago the residents of the snhurb of
Gladstone got together and formed an
organization to promote the interests of
that suburb in an improvement way.
The results are already being shown.
Sidewalks are being planned and steps
taken to construct more sidewalks. Act
ual work will soon begin. Electric lights
are only a matter of a short time. A
sentiment In favor of clean streets and
more sightly woodpiles, and other do
mestic arrangements is being created,
and tbe citizens are full of the spirit of
civic improvement. In the few meetings
so far held by the Gladstone association
an enthusiasm is being manifeeted which
speaks much for the effectiveness of such
organizations in localities too small for
tbe town or city organization.
