DIRECT LEGISLATION AND THE
' The Initiative and Referendum case
la now before the Supreme Court of
the United States. In thla case a
corporation of Oregon, .seeking to es
cape a tax on Its franchise has appeal
ed to tbe federal court. The tax waa
authorized by a popular vote on initia
tive petition. The corporation opposes
It on the ground that it believes that
. the claaae in the Federal Constitution
guaranteeing to each state a republi
can form of government forbids the
Initiative and Referendum. Probably
Bo one knows better than the attor
neys making this plea how absurd the
contention is. The guarantee of a
"republican form of government" was
not Intended to perpetuate deleated
government, but to guard tbe states
against reversion to monarcbial rule.
But juM as the Fourteenth Amend-
The membership of the Supreme
Court can then be Increased and a
reactionary majority changed Into a
progressive one. Then an end can be
put quickly and for all time to ail
usurped power. The same remedy that
Asqulth waa ready to use la England
to put an end to further blocking of
progress by the House of Lords la
available here to end similar blocking
by the Supreme Court. No matter
how the court acta la this case. Its
power to Interfere with the rights and
liberties of tha people should be end
ed. Despotic power la always objec
tionable whether need tyrannically or
not While it lasts there la always
the danger of five men, possessed like
the rest of us with prejudices and
weaknesses, offering to predatory ln
leresta with enormous financial power
a refuge for their predatory privileges.
That meat end.

In these days of heartrending Inter
est In I he Beavera and the Vernon
team, and the scrap between the
itilanta and Athletic in the East, we
don't have much time to think of
With the Commercial Club High
Jinks tonight and the Lyceum Course
tomorrow night We have a good start
for a full week end.
We would like to occupy a front
seat at tbe Eames concert, but "Oh
you four dollars."
e a e
That atunt of, giving priies to tbe
boy who grows the finest vegetables
is a good one. Plenty of room for that
kind of work In Oregon City.
e a e
Everyone admits the need for an
Oregon City Y. M. C. A. It la only
the question of having the right kind
of a man at the head of the move
ment The citizens of this city will sup
port .the movement when they know
their support, moral and financial,
will be properly used. The Reading
Room does splendid work aa far aa It
goea but our young men need tmore
than a room, where silence" la the
I e e e
Omaha's election waa a two to one
vote In favor of the commission form
of government The popular move
ment for thlssy stem of munlcrpaT
management la rapidly spreading over
the entire country and our city Is
right In Una with the rest of them.
The certainty of the success of the
commission plan aa outlined for Ore
gon City, rests entirely with the three
men selected, to take charge of the
municipal reins. That these men most
be business med of proved ability
goea, without aaylng. The selection of
these men Is of equal importance with
one other phase of the question, I. e.,
the salary these men will receive. The
head of thla city should be a three-thousand-dollar
man with his col
logues receiving at least twenty-five
hundred dollars each per year. We
believe these figures to be the mini
mum amount to be paid. A one or
two-thousand-dollar man will not be
Capable of giving us the desired re
aulta. In other words a man who can
manage the affairs of tbe city the way
we want them attended to la tbe man
whose aervlcea are-worth three thous
and to any employer. A cheaper man
will give ua a ''cheaper" administra
tion. Any salary less will probably
only attract a man who would alwaya
have bla hand out for a little hush
money, and a taint of graft under the
commission system would spoil Its
usefulness at once.

above tbe town and released the water that was held to furnish

and used It aa a battering ram to demolish house. Nome Urge bulkUaga were

POTATO DEMAND 18
STILL" ON DECLINE
-The -potato market is drifting In
Portland and the same condition Is
showing at other centers. The ex
treme price that buyers are able to
pay In carlota at thla time la $1 per
cental f. o. b. country shipping points
and tha profits in making shipments
to the s uth on this basis are ao amall
that most of the buyers are not offer
ing over II r o h. Portland.
The tope for an early outside mar
ket for Oregon potatoes seems to be
vanishing owing to the extreme high
prlres that msny growers here are
asking al this time. While growers In
California and Idaho are sailing at
whstever the market will afford at
thla lime, there seems to be little ten
dency among local Interests to let go
California la cutting thla market out
of the Texas trade owing to Ha ability
to aril at lower figures. The Ban
Diego market Is being supplied .with
California river slock at $1.17 12 de
livered there while the cheapest Ore
