And Sound at That John Henry's Let
ter How Fares the Referendum?
Editor Times:
At this time when there are peti
tions in circulation to invoke the
referendum, to' defeat the general
appropriation bill passed in the last
legislature, it certainly behooves
the voter of the ttate of Oregon to
stop and consider.
We shall not attempt to excuse
the members of the legislature, but
we cope to nx at least a pari 01 me
responsibility where it rightly be
longs. As the Times euggested
some time ago, the usefulness of
this great power of the people de
pends largely (upon tee intelligence
with which it Is exercised by the
voters of the state. ,
What is this monster which the
tix pavers of the ttate are so anx
ious to knock on the head with
their great constitutional club? Is
it not a grand aggregate of what we
demanded of our representatives
and senators when we sent them to
the legislature? What losality or
county is it that does not only ex
pect but frequently demands of
their representatives that they get
their hand as deep into the public
crib as possible? And if they fail
to do so they thus dig their politic
al grave. .
Of course the part of the great
bill which we consider "graft" is
what the other fellow gets not what
we get for our share. But what do
we hope to gain by invoking the
referendum? All the institutions
provided for, are in accord with the
law and their expenses must be
paid. If we kill the present bill
we will have to take - the dose in
double quantity later on. The
proper course is to take the Orego
nian's advice and initiate at least
two laws first to eliminate the nor
mal school proposition, and second,
to adopt a measure providing for
the governor to veto individual
items of the . general appropriation
bill. We blame the legislature be
cause they do. not pass these law?,
but they cannot do this and at the
fame time secure the part of the
"grait" which ; their constituents
have demanded that they secure.
Polk county would bs willing for
all the normal schools to be cut out
but one, provided hers should be
the one, so with other counties
where normals are located. -Lane
and Beaton are not in position to
have their representatives vote for
the-elimination of normal schools.
So let us not blame our men for log
rolling as long as we demand, what
they can secure in no oth-r way.
But above all let the people, the
supreme power in our great at at,
exercise good, sound sense ' when
they turn to the ballot, to remedy
defects for which they ar largely
responsible. And whi'n we ?ry t'
naeft laws by the initiatiive let us
also use judgment as Jaws passed by
thn people must stand the fire : of
the vourts, or we will not be rs-gar;-d
as any better law makers
this, the average body of legislator-.
For instance, there is a, pro
posed law to tax railroad lands for
30 ; cars back. This measure was
drn v. a up by leading lawyers and
ha- i.o doubt been signed by dozens
of c- cn pe tent attorneys, yet the bill,
if p.ssed, would not stand in the
cou ts long enough to pav for writ
ing it. So let us take heed to what
we do. . John Henry.
