THE HOOD RIVER NEWS, WEDNESDAY. APRIL 30, 1913
A, I, MASON WRITES
Kdltor, the News: It lg not neces
sary, neither do I tk'Blre at this time
to make a reply to the many unjust
criticisms and misleading statements
now being made by the public press
relative to those who are signing the
referendum petltlong against the U.
of O. building appropriations, which
are to be followed with an Initiative
bill consolidating the U. of O. and O.
A. C, but I feel it my duty on behalf
of those who are so willingly assist
ing ub In this work, and for the bene
fit of those who perhaps do not really
understand the law relative to the
special election, which 1b supposed to
be held this coining November, to off
er a few words of explanation.
There Is a big howl now being made
by many newspapers throughout the
Btate against those who are signing
any referendum petitions on account
of throwing the state Into an expense
of 1100,000 for a special election. Let
ug see who is to blame for this and
ascertain if this accusation Is true.
The last legislature created several
laws. One of them provided for a
special election to be held this fall
and to this law was attached the
emergency clause. Hut this special
election was not to be called unless
some one of these bills was referred
by the referendum. Why was the
emergency clause attached to this
special election bill? It was done so
that the people couJd not stop the
holding of thig special election. And
now we are told we are to blame for
Notice the injustice of such a law.
ICS sole object was to thwart and
abridge the referendum powers given
to us by our state constitution. In
other worls, If you do not like any or
all of the laws created by our last
legislature you are to be accused of
costing the state $100,000 for using
the constitutional right It's a $100,000
handicap on our referendum laws.
And though this vicious legislation
was slipped over the people by our
last legislature, yet such acts will
have the opposite effect desired by
It was my pleasure to attend a
meetting of the executive board of
the Oregon Higher Educational Bet
terment League held In Portland a
few days ago. At this meeting were
three of Portland's best attorneys and
all of them were of the opinion that
a special election this fall was not
necessary, wag a needless expense
and would be entirely illegal.
Our state constitution gives the
power of calling a special election to
the legislature only. There is no spe
cial election called as yet and no
act of the people does not give them
(rhe people) the power to call such
The Higher Educational Betterment
League, by a unanimous vote, ha8 in
structed Its executive board to secure
legal assistance and enter suit against
the holding of a special state elec
tion this full. The referendum peti
tions now being circulated on the U.
of O. appropriations provide for the
referring them at the regular elec
tion to be held in November, 1914.
There are now being circulated 6
referendum petitions on at least six
different bills passed by our last Leg
Is lature and if we cannot knock out
the special election to be held this
fall we shall have an extra expense
of $100,000 forced on u8 by our last
legislature and not by those who are
signing any referendum petitions for
they are simply using their constitu
tional rights. If our last legislature
violated its duty and tried to abridge
the state constitution, should our loy
al cliizens be blamed for their acts.
At some future time when It be
comes necessary I shall write again,
Justifying the acts of those who are
signing the D. of O. referendum peti
tions with the. sole object of con
solidating our two stnte colleges.
In conclusion I desire to say to my
fellow cltliens that if there Is a -single
act of our last legislature on Mffcich a
referendum la being Invoked and you
feel that such meets your approval,
you are not doing your duty as a citi
zen if you do not sign It, for It Is
Just ag much your saored duty to
assist In correcting a public wrong
by signing a rferenftom petition as It
Is to cast your vote at any general
