"irnquestlonably the Supreme Court
will decide that th Initiative and
referendum are constitutional," . said
Senator Ilotirne today.
"My opinion la that th court will
hold the question Is purely political,
entirely within the Jurisdiction of the
states under the Constitution. I have
not seen any member of the court,
but I reached th conclusion after a
consultation this morning with one
of the nation' ablest constitutional
lawyers. In my mind there 1 no
doubt that -th decision of the Su

Freeman, the other half, and Lang

ble to put a play through this man's
position and his offensive work It
fine. As an Interference man be Is
a effective as a' bust saw. In fact
the whole team la a well balanced ag

Attention of tb owner of stallions
aad-Jaeks I alled to the new stallion
law which went into effect May 20,
1911. A number of horsemen have
not complied with the provisions of
this law. It is ' necessary - that all
stallion and Jack used for public!
service must be licensed by the State
Stallion Registration Board at Cor
vallls, and that they must be inspect
ed by an official Inspector appointed
by thla board. Attention is also called
to tb fact that, according to thla
law, stallions which were In th sUts
at the time th law went Into effect
and licensed during th first season
will be licensed even though unsound,
although such unsoundness will be
stated in the Hcense. All horses, how
ever, which are not used for public
service and licensed during tb first
season will be refused license and
not allowed to stand for public service
unless they pass the proper veteri
nary inspection. It is very Important
therefore, that horsemen who are
delinquent In thh matter get in their
applications at once. Stallion owners
who have Already received licenses
for their horses will confer a favor
upon their neighbors by calling their
attention to thla fact.
Horsemen are also urgently re
quested not to purchase stallion or
Jacks until after they have been in
spected by one of the state Inspectors
and have received their state license,
for otherwise It may prove that suc&
stallions or Jacks -may prove unsound
and hence not eligible to be used for
breeding purposes in this state, or it
may be found that tbetr pedigrees
are bogus and that they will have
to be licensed aa grades or mongrels
Instead of pure breds as represented.
