Counties aiTd Other Judicial
and Municipal Districts
Need Enabling Act. -
Intention of Amendments Was lo
, JL.cave Regulation of Cities as JFrce
us Possible From Interference
by the Legislature.
OREGON CITY, Or., Oct. 22. (Special.)
An enabling art by the Legislature is
not considered necessary to make effect
ive the constitutional amendment adopted
last June giving cities and towns power
to initiate local laws; but such an act is
necessary and should be passed by the
Legislature to enable counties and other
judicial and municipal districts to exer
cise power over local and special legisla
tion. This is the opinion of W. & U'Ren,
of this city, who was a member of the
committee by which the final revision of
these amendments was made. In discuss
ing the subject today, Mr. U'Ren said:
The amendments to th constitution adopt
ed I apt June, referring to rfty charters and
further reserving tho initiative and referen
dum powers of the people to the lepal vot
ers of every municipality and district as to
all local, npocial and municipal Jppislation.
should be construed together. The word
"municipal" was used In its technical sense.
Including countlen as well as cities. Reading
them, together, lawyera generally agree that
they are self-operative.
Hon. W. t Bristol, Seneca Smith, Hon.
Thomas N. Greene, and J. C. Veassie formed
the committee which made the linal revis
ion of these amend ments. I was present at
some. of the "meet i tigs,' though not all, and I
slathered from the discussion that It was
the intention to leave- the people of cities
as nearly as posslMo wholly free from In
terference by the Legislature in their purely
local city legislation, except as it might af
fect the criminal laws of the state. This
npplted to the manner of exercising the in
itiative and referendum, and was intended to
he covered by the sentence, the manner of
exerclsl ng said powers shall be prescribed
by general laws, except that cities and towns
may provide Tor the manner of exercising the
Initiative and referendum powers as tf their
municipal legislation."
The time within which referendum peti
tions must be filed after the passage of an
ordinance, in w hich ' Initiative petitions must
bo filed before a city election, the calling of
a special election for city measures as well
h the percentage of" signatures required, as
I understand the committee, were consid
ered to be governed by the phrase, "man
ner -of exercising the initiative and referen
dum pown s," and the only limitation In
tended to be placed on the city- was the per
centage of signatures that could he required, '
not more than li per cent for the initiative
nnr more than 10 -per cent for the referen
dum on city ordinances, charters and amend
ments. This seems to be the general understand
ing by the lawyers at Astoria, Baker City,
t'oqullle, and perhaps other towns have al
ready taken steps to submit amendments to
their charters"" at their .municipal election.
As to the plan of revision in Astoria, Mayor
Wise wrote me last Summer that the Coun
cil formed a oommisslon "consisting of one
member of the Council fim each ward; the
Senator and Representatives elected to the
next Legislature; Mayor, City Attorney,
Auditor and Treasurer; three representatives
of the Labor Council, representing the vari
ous labor Interests, and live large property
owners, who are considering the charter sec
tion by section, and. If any change Is to be
made a resolution must be Introduced in
writing, lay over for one week before ttjial
action is taken so that no hasty or ill-ad-vlsed
action can be had. We have also In
vited the people at large to send In their
suggestions. If they may have any, in writ
ing, or else attend our sessions In person. All
amendments receiving a majority vote of
the entire commission of 111 members will
then be submitted to the people direct, at
the city election to be held next December,
iind every amendment receiving a majority
of the votes of the people will then become
a part of our charter; that will he a great
Improvement over former charter tinkering,
which was never done In the open, but
smuggled through tho Legislature, causing
wrangling and enmity between the residents
of the community."
The committee believed it would be diffi
cult, if not Impossible, to draw a general
enabling act for tho city use of the initi
ative and referendum powers that would
apply to the best advantage and give com
plete local satisfaction in all cities and
towns. Hut If the people in every city were
allowed to provide their own method they
could easily amend and appeal until they
had worked out a satisfactory method for
their own ordinances and charter amend
ments. The fundamental idea seems to be
that self-government municipal, as well as
state and National is yet in its experimental
stage, and the 'smaller the scale on which
experiments can be tried the more rapid is
likely to be tho general progress toward suc
cessful methods.
The local and special legislation provis
ion of the amendment was Intended to cover
acts of the Legislative Assembly applying to
a district composed of a part of a county
or parts of several counties, as for instance.
Irrigation districts; districts composed of one
or more counties, as for instance, judicial
districts or tho Port of Portland district, and
two single counties, as for instance the laws
regulating the salaries of county officers, etc.
An enabling act should be passed by the
legislature or by tho people for the opera
tion of the Initiative and referendum powers
as to such local, special and district legisla
tion. tfuch an act will probably bo much the
same in general features as the enabling act
for the operation of the Initiative and ref
erendum on general laws enacted by the Leg
islature In li0;i. Amendments to that law
will be offered In the coming Legislature, em
bodying the experience of the past four
years, as it seems to be generally admitted
that the practice proves that this statute
may be very much simplified and improved.
Bids for Sale of Land in Vicinity of
Salem Are Opened.
SALKM. Or.. Oct. 22. (Special.) The
State Board of Public Building Commis
sioners today opened bides for the sale of
land for a home for the feeble-minded.
The call for bUls announced that the state
desired to purchase a tract of about TXH)
acres within 10 miles of Salem, and in
vited landowners to offer their land either
separately or jointly in tracts which
would aggregate tho required amount.
The bids opened have not been arranged
according to locality, and. as the charac
ter of the land and improvements cannot
be readily ascertained, it is impossible
yet to say what kind of a purchase the
state can make. In general it may he
said that prices run all the way from 540
to $150 per acre, and that values are placed
higher than the board expected to find
them. An average price Is about an
acre, -which would make the land f or p.
home for the feeble-minded cost the state
about $G5,0i.
Among the places offered, usually in
connection with adjoining tracts, are the
M irk lkiff farm, north of Luke Labish;
the tJesner and MeCornaek farms, be
tween the Asylum farm and the Peniten
tiary; tho Gilbert & Pauenson farm, at
Eola; - the Ben Hayden farm, - between
Eola and Independence; the Putnam farm,"
in the hills west of Salem; .the Geer farm,
at Macleay; the Tilmon Ford "farm, -south
of Salem on the Sidney road; tho Wain
and Frank Baker farms, south of Salem
on the Jefferson road, and the John
Hughes Company farm, south of Salem on
the river road.

Salt Lake and Ojjden Lose Business
From a Very Productive
FOCATELLO, Idaho. Oct. 22. (Special.)
Under the new joint freight tariff
adopted by Western railroads, Pocatello is
granted a sweeping reduction in rates
from Chicago and - Mississippi and Mis
souri river, points. The new tariff goes
into effect November 24, and extends to
Southeastern Idaho." The low rates now
obtain from Eastern points to Salt Lake
and common points in Utah. The reduc
tion affects class rates and commodity
rates as well, and the cut ranges from 5
to 30 per cent.
The Utah common-point rate will,' after
November 24, extend as far west as Poca
tello and as far north as Idaho Falls, and
on most commodities will place this-city
on an equal footing with Salt Lake and
Ogden, which, cities have heretofore dom
inated this commercial territory by virtue
of their lower freight rates.
The cut in first-class rates is from $3.30
per 100 pounds to $2.85 from Chicago, and
irom ?2.."0 to $2.15 on first-class freight
from Missouri River points. The effect of
the reduction will be to constitute Poca
tello the commercial distributing point for
a territory bounded on the east by Kem
merer, on the south by Cache Junction, on
the north by Idaho Falls and on the west
by Mountain Home.
Salt Lake and Ocden can no longer
compete for tho trade of this region. The
effect of the announcement of the reduc
tion was noticeable today, when' local
merchants announced their intention of
increasing stocks, oh hand and entering
the jobbing business. This afternoon op
tions were taken on much vacant ground
along the line of the new Short Line
warehouse track on the East Side, and it
is confidently expected that several big
wholesale houses and Jobbing "establish
ments will be erected within the next few

ST. JOHNS. Or.. Oct. 22. St. Johns
voted today almost unanimously to bond
the school district for $20,000 to erect a
new school building and procure grounds
in North St. Johns. Little or no interest
was manifested, and the vote cast would
hardly reach 25 per .cent of the voting
population, as taken from the June elec
tion. Although it will be several months
before actual work on Hhe structure will
begin, the location of a site will be com
menced at once. It is imperative to have
the new structure ready before the next
school year, as present facilities are taxed
to the utmost. At the same time it was
voted to issue the $SvO0 bonds to pay for
the addition built to the present school
building this Summer.

Sarcastic Comment at Meeting of Ta
coma. Ministerial Alliance.
TACOMA, Wash., Oct. 22. (Special.)
There was a hint thrown out in the
Ministerial Alliance' meeting this morn
ing: that certain preachers have been
endeavoring to use the alliance for a
grindstone for the whetting of politi
cal axes. Dr. J. A. Keener was in the
chair and said he considered it a good
opportunity to say that he thought
more of the ministers should attend
the meetings.
"When I came here last Spring I
found a good bit of politics around
and there were a lot of ministers here
at every meeting. Now fhe politics
have ' quieted down and we do not see
the number so great."
Dr. J. P. Marlatt. president of the
alliance, agreed with Mr. Keener.
"Since I have been in the chair," said
Rev. Marlatt, "I have noticed generally
very few of the pastors of our central
churches are here. One minister has
not been here since last Spring when
he came with some political resolution
he wanted to get through."

Jury of Farmers Is Chosen to Try
a Notable Case at
- Albany.
ALBANY, Or., Oct. 22. (Special.) This
afternoon in a courtroom packed to its
capacity with curious spectators the trial
of Elmer E. Wagstaff, accused of at
tempting to poison his wife with arsenic,
was begun. It was a- Hard afternoon
for court, attorneys, jury and all. The
atmosphere of the crowded room was
stifling; and the court did not adjourn
until 6 o'clock. Numerous sharp legal
clashes between attorneys for the state
and for the defense punctuated the ses
sion. The afternoon was consumed in select
ing a jury, opening the case for the state
and defense and the examination of Mrs.
Wagstaff, the woman against whom the
alleged poisoning was directed and who
is the star witness for the state. The
jury was selected with great care by at
torneys for both sides. The state de
voted considerable attention to lodge and
church affiliations of the jurors. The ex
amination of the defense was along the
line of second marriages, divorce, family
Infelicities, etc., indicating the line of de
fense. The jury as finally selected is
composed entirely of farmers.
Mrs. Wagstaff was subjected to a trying
examination, remaining on the witness
stand for two hours. There are nearly
30 witnesses to examine yet, and the trial
will probably last two days longer.
Mrs. Wagstaff says she saw her hus
band place rat poison in her teacup. She
alleges that she found tbe poison by ac
cident in his pocket at night and watched
the attempt to kill her next morning.

District Attorney are State of Oregon vs.
William Curtis, Elsworth Curtis, Seymour
Curtis, Chester Curtis and John Curtis,
a father and four sons, all charged with
assaulting Chauncey L. Williams with
clubs, guns and other dangerous weapons.
The defendants took a day to plead and
it is understood will ask that the case
be continued until the next term of court.
The trouble grew out of a quarrel be
tween Williams and Curtis, Sr., over
financial matters, concerning a lease of a
farm belonging to Williams on which the
Curtis family has resided for the past
year. When Williams attempted to' en
ter the farm to place his threshing ma
chine in the shed he was met by Curtis
and his four sons, all able-bodied, strong
men, who gave him a severe drubbing.
Neighbors Intervened and prevented more
serious trouble.

There are two classes of remedies: those of known qual
ity and which are permanently beneficial in effect, acting .
gently, in harmony with nature, when nature needs assist
ance ; and another class, composed of preparations of
unknown, uncertain and inferior character, acting tempo
rarily, but injuriously, as a result of forcing the natural
functions unnecessarily. One of the most exceptional of
the remedies of known quality and excellence is the ever
