Others Oppose Calling a Con
SCENT SCHEME IN MOVEMENT
Friends of Initiative and Referendum
Declare It Is Planned to Abolish
the Amendment Views of
THE PRESENT CONSTITUTION.
The present constitution was framed
by a convention of CO delegates chosen
by the people In June, 1857. The con
vention lasted Irom the first Monday of
August of that year to September 18.
Jn November the constitution was rat
ified by the people, and went Into eftect
February 14. 1859, when the act of Con
gress admitting Oregon Into the Union
-was approved by the Tresldent.
Among those who have to treat dally
with the constitution of the state In their
business dealings, the proposal to call a
constitutional convention lor January,
1906, for the purpose o either amending
the present constitution or. drafting an
other, lb meeting with a great deal of
Interest and discussion.
So far as can be noted from the expres
sions gleaned here and there from men
who have made a study of the constitution
and what It provides, the concensus of
opinion seems to be that it is desirable
to call the convention, that it Is neces
sary to change the constitution In many
ways to make it conform to the changed
conditions of the present time. It is held
out that the constitution as it stands Is
out of date and rusty, that it makes it
necessary to ignore its provision in legis
lation now needed for the government of
the state and its institutions, and that its
provisions arc being ignored to the down
fall of its force and dignity.
There are those who hold two radical
views opposing one another. The first,
and by the great part the majority, as it
seems. Is made up of those who wish the I
instrument altered or replaced by a new
one. holding It to be out-dated and in
many ways obsolete. On the other hand
Is the minority, which takes the position
that the changes arc desired at this time
in order to kill the Initiative and referen- j
dum clause, and thereby take away from
the people in general their power over the
action of the Legislature.
Delegates to Be Chosen.
The supporters of the plan, however,
take the stand that the bill providing for
the election of delegates and the calling
of the convention has been drafted In a
Sanner which does away with all danger
unfairness to any political belief, since
it provides that the delegates shall be en
tirely the choice of the people at large.
This seems to be the opinion of the ma
jority, which is willing to concede great
fairness to the frame rs of the proposed
It Is also called to mind, however, that
the present constitution makes no pro
vision for calling a convention, and that
under the provisions of the old instru
ment no convention could be called with
out first so amending the constitution
that it would be possible to provide for
the convention. Any other course, so
it Is held out, would be violation of the
constitution and not according to law, it
amounting in fact to a peaceable revolu
tion in the state unless all people agreed
In the wisdom of changing the document
at this time.
Attorneys in Portland are almost to a
man in favor of making the change. Some
of them state" their reasons, while others
simply say from their knowledge that
they think it would be best, and is In fact,
necessary that the change be made at the
present as the best time. To wait will
make it harder to change.
Constitution Needs Revision.
Senator D. J. Malar key Is very much in
favor of the proposed change, and will
do all in his power to bring about the
passage of the bill now pending.
'There are so many respects," he said,
"In which our constitution is suscepti
ble of improvement that I think it would
be wise to provide for the convention.
That body might enact the same constitu
tion now In existence, but I think after
we have had one for DO years It is -time
to make some changes in It. The condi
tions have changed and the present doc
ument does not cover the ground neces
sary It should be elastic enough to meet
the now conditions arising, and the old
one does not do It
"There are many reasons why such ac
tion should be taken. It has been sug
gested that the Jury system should be
changed, at least in civil practice, so that
a majority of Jurors would convict, or ba
able to return a verdict. It has also been
proposed to take the probate business
away from the county courts and create
the Superior Court, to take care of that
work, then the County Court could attend
solely to the business Interests of the
county. In the same way It would be
easy to enumerate at least twenty reasons
wny the change should be made.
'The proposed bill is very fair and safe
guards every avenue of danger. It takes
It out of the hands of the political par
ties ana puts the election of the dele
gates entirely In the hands of the peo
pie. in addition to this. 30 delegates
are given to the Supreme Court by an
pointment la order that 30 of the most
capable men in the state may be chosen
to help In making the constitution.
"Another thing that Is mentioned for
change Is the system of municipal legisla
tion. Under the present arrangement tho
time of the Legislature Is taken up with
tho consideration of charter bills and
other local measures which could Just as
well be delegated entirely to the care of
those localities most Interested.
"I think It would be a good idea to pro
vide for a legislative session every time
there was to be an election of-a United
States Senator, the duration to be 11m
Ited to 35 days and the business limited
. to the election alone. If the election
could not be brought about in that time
let the state go unrepresented In Con
grrss. The second legislative session
would be for the law-making and for this
the Legislators could be called together
rvery five years. This would do away
with much of the present useless legisla
tion. I think the convention should bo
Favored by W. D. Fenton.
W D. Fentbn said in answer to the
I have always been opposed to the
-ailing of a convention, but I think it
would be advisable at this time if it could
bo arranged without too much expense.
"I think the chief necessity is to provide
for the salary of the state officers and
to thus aboHslT the fee system. Then the
jurisdiction of the courts should be tc
districted, the probate business being
taken from the County Courts and placed
in the hands of a newly created Superior
Court. Besides these there axe many
other changes necessary. The conditions
have changed so that the constitution does
not meet the requirements of the time."
Constitution Should Be Elastic.
It. A. Lelter is also of the opinion that
some change should be made:
"I am In favor of calling a convention,"
he said, "for I think It Is necessary to
regulate the salaries of the state officers
and for many other reasons. Because a
constitution was once adopted is no sign
that It cannot be amended or bettered. It
should be elastic enough to meet the
changing conditions of the state, which
is not now the case.
"There is, of course, a danger that the
cranks might engraft a lot of undesirable
things on the new instrument, but I think
the convention could be controlled by the
sober-mlded men of the state and that
there would be no trouble."
Constitution Now Ignored.
Frederick V. Hoi man said:
"I think there should be a convention
called, though J. have always been op
posed to such procedure In the past. There
Is a danger of incorporating some craze
in the new measure, such as the initiative
and referendum, but that would not 4be
"We will have to have a new constitu
tion in a few years at the latest, and
now is a good time to commence to pro
vide for the work.
"I do not believe In treating the consti
tution with contempt, as Is being done by
the legislation of today. Measures are
offered at each Legislature which ignore
the provisions of the constitution, and I
believe in living up to the letter ot tho
general and main law.
"I think the salary question should be
settled and the fee system abolished.
There Is, however, no provision in the
constitution providing for the call of
convention, and I have held that the first
thing to be done would be to provide an
amendment to the constitution authorizing
the call of a convention. If that is not
done and a convention is called, it will
amount in fact to a peaceable revolution
In the state.
"In my opinion, It would be a good
thing to fiave a convention, though all
conventions are dangerous, if they fall
into wrong hands."
Governor Open to Conviction.
Governor Chamberlain is the only man
i-t the list who does not have u decided
opinion on the question.
"I have not read the bill carefully," ho
said, "and I would not like to make any
definite statement until I have done so.
and have listened to the arguments both
for and against. As a general proposition
I have not been in favor of it, for I do
not think it is necessary. I am. however,
capable of being changed in my opinion
by argument, and if the arguments are
sufficient I might think it to be neces
sary, and a good thing to call the con'

"As It is now, we have a well-arranged
code, but many antiquated laws. If we
revise the constitution we can have up-
to-date lawy. For Instance, wc have
County Court for probate matters, and
In most states probate business Is trans
acted in the District or Circuit Court, but
under the Oregon constitution we are com
pelled to have a County Court."
Let Well Enough AJonc.
"I don't see why we should have a con
stitutlonal convention," said George W.
Joseph. "I think the present instrument
is good tsnough. and I believe In letting
well enough alone."
Alex Bernstein said: "A new constitu
tion Is not a necessity. Matters In tho
present Instrument could in many respects
be Improved upon. The question of sal
aries for state officers; increased number
of Judges for the Supreme Court and kin
dred subjects could be treated and the in

state at large, chosen by the Supreme
Court, and CO by the electors of the
state. The CO candidates are to be

A constitution as drafted by the con
vention Is to be submitted to the people
for ratification or rejection at an elec
tion to be held June , 1900, and the
convention Is to prescribe the form of
the questions that are to be submitted.
The bill appropriates $50,000 for defraying-the
expenses of the convention.
The delegates are to receive ?5 a day,
but suoh compensation shall not esceed
$300 for any delegate. They shall alto
receive ?3 for every 20 miles traveled In
going to and returning from the conven
tutional convention," said John F. Lo
gaa "The present constitution puts the
Supreme Judges In the ridiculous position
of receiving only JCOOO per year salary,
and the Legislature to give them more
has to whip the devil around the stump
by giving them 32390 expense money per
year to go to Pendleton and hold a short
session of court there. These same
Judges are supposed to pass upon the
constitutionality of laws, when they
themselves are breaking the law in this
way. There arc inadequate provisions in
the constitution with reference to cor
porations. The inhibition against erect
ing public buildings except at Salem is
another thing. Negroes are not permit
ted to live In Oregon under our constitu
tion, and Chinese cannot legally hold
property. Cities should be classified so
that laws can be passed for cities accord
ing to their requirements. As it is now,
all laws have to bo general. There Is the
flat-salary bill covering the offices of Gov
ernor and Secretary of State. That Is
unconstitutional under the present meas
ure, we have a State Printer, and what
more need is there for a State Printer
than for a state horscshocr? Tho courts
should be rearranged so-that probate and
all other matters shall be handled by one
court. Our constitution will not permit
this change. Last, but not least, a con
stitutional convention ought to be held to
get rid of the initiative and referendum
Archaic Features Need Correction.
R. T. Piatt said: "The extreme diffi
culty of getting salutary amendments
enacted whenever there Is any powerful
opposition from any source leads me to
believe that any archaic features can only
be corrected by a constitutional conven
"I am not much of a believer in a con
stitutional convention tinkering," said H.
Piatt, "becauso the experience of most
states has shown that tho new one is not
as good as the old one. I think we should
amend the old one. Modern constltU'
tlonal conventions have generally incor
porated a lot of things that are really
legislative enactment, and should be left
to the Legislature. The only serious ob
jection to the present constitution is the
size of our Supreme Court."
Inadequate in Some Particulars.
Judge Charles H. Carey is another
one who thinks that there should be
some change in tho constitution. In
speaking of the matter he said:
'I am very heartily in favor of it.
for there are many changes needed.
have been very slow in making up my
mind that the convention should bo
called, but during the past two or
three years many reasons have im
pressed themselves upon me until '.
feel that even the most conservative
citizen will admit the necessity of
somo changes in the constitntion, to
adapt it to the present needs of our
I think the constitution can be re
vised by such a convention without
radically changing It In any of its
parts. The constitution in the main
is an excellent instrument, while to
tally inadequate in some particulars.'
C. E. S. Wood Opposed.
C. B. S. Wood sounded the battle cry
of those who are not in favor of the
convention in a few short sentences.
My idea, he said, "Is that If we
have waited so manv vcars to reform
the constitution, now that we have got
process for changing it through the
initiative and referendum, it would
not be wise to call the convention to
undo this work. I do not see any rea
son for a convention unless they intend
to do away with the initiative and ref
erendum clause. We now have a means
of changing tho constitution and re
forming it. The old constitution un
doubtedly needed amendment, for it
attempted to meddle in the field ot leg'
islation, but it is curious that they
want to amend It now when we have
moans or amending it put In our
Save the Initiative and Referendum.
Judge Thomas O'Day was a follower
of Mr. Woods In his ideas on the sub
ject. He feels deeply concerning- the
contemplated movement and was glad
to have an opportunity to express him
self on the question.
The object of calling the convention
is, as I see it. to do away with the
initiative and referendum." he said.
"In my opinion, the Initiative gives tho
people an opportunity to legislate,
which is a move In the right direction.
"The people who want to change this
condition are those who think that the
people are not capable of governing
themselves and they want to take the
Initiative away from the masses.
"But I think if they do get the con
vention. tho referendum will remain.
There is, in my opinion, more proba
bility of the Legislature being aboi
ished than that the initiative and ref
erendum will be repealed, and I am
opposed to any scheme which will abol
ish or curtail the initiative and refer
endum and through that act the power
of the people.
"I think the safety of this republic
lies In the fact that the entire people.
the real sovereigns, not only partici
pate in the government, but they par
ticipate in making the laws by which
the people are governed. For this rea
son and the danger to the initiative, I
do not think it wise to call a conven
tion." G. C. Moscr Favors Convention.
"I favor the convention," said G. C
Moser, "and think it would bo a good
thing. There are many defects In the
constitution which can be rectified by a
convention better than by amendment.
"Many things need to be changed.
We "are working under a constitution

R. W. Montague had a wish that a
sincere spirit would be brought to bear
when the convention was called, if It
"Wa" If Called in Good Faith.
"If the convention was to be com
posed of high-class and representative
men,? he said, "it would be a good
thirfe to call it. There Is no doubt that,
the 'constitution needs to be amended.
The question then is whether to do it
by the slow process of the initiative
and referendum or by tho quicker
method of a convention- The extremes
on either side fear that the other power
will gain the ascendency in the con
vention and control it. If, however. It
is called in good faith it would prove
of great benefit, and I would be heart
ily in favor of 1L

T would consider the convention to
be not only proper, but essential." said"
W. M. Cake. "My judgment wouia do
that It would be admlssable. I regard
tho constitution very highly and think
it should bo considered in all legisla
tion and not ignored. Conditions are
much different now than they were 50
years ago and tho constitution should
be changed to meet the change in them.
Its dignity should bo preserved ana
upheld and recognized, and therefore I
think that a convention snouia do

DISCUSS SCHOOL EXHIBIT.
County Committee Holds Business
Session and Prepares to Act.
The county school exhibit committee
met yesterday In the offjee of County
School Superintendent Robinson. - A. F.
Hlrschner, chairman, presided. The ses
sion occupied the entire day.
After thoroughly discussing the county
exhibit plan It was decided to send copies-
to every teacher in the county along with
a circular letter of the educational exhibit
department of the state. This, In the
opinion of the committee, will result in
an aggressive movement in all school dis
tricts of the county. School officers and
natrons will be requested to co-operate
with the teachers in , common effort
to make the Multnomah County exhibit
as thorough as possible
But little over two months remain in
which to build and assemble the county
exhibit. All, it Is thought, will be un
usually active during that period. The
exhibit will be assembled in the office of
the County Superintendent and arranged
under the direction of tho county exhibit
committee. The Teachers' Progress Club
and the Principals' Association will de
vote their entire energies to the educa
tional districts during the next three
months and aid the forming of the ex
hibit In every manner. A great deal ot
interest Is being taken in the exhibit In
most of the county schools, and this will
probably be intensified from now on.
The exhibit will be so arranged as to
exemplify the course of study. It Is not
the intention of the committee to make
large exhibit, but rather to select that
which will show their plans to the best
advantage and materially contribute to
the educational cause In the Northwest.
