PURPOSES OF THE INITIATIVE
AND REFERENDUM LEAGUE
Objects Set Forth by H. H. Ahrens, New President, Who Has Just
Entered on Duties of Office.
H. H. Ahrens, who has been electeff
president of the Initiative and Refer
endum League of Oregon, which is
composed of delegates from labor
unions, civic clubs and the granges,
has entered on his duties,, and declares
hie determination to make the league
accomplish Its purposes. The league
has undertaken a campaign of educa
tion. President Ahrens has been asked
many questions as to the purposes of
the league and what it is hoped to do.
In answer he says:
Several months ago friend, of the Initia
tive and referendum amendment were lett
to believe their constitutionality would be
teled In the Supreme Court of the 1 niteu
Slates by the Pacific Telephone company.
At that time tho lea-Kue movement was in
stituted lor the purpose of aiding in oe
fendlng sii'l protecting the amendment. The
organixatlon of such a league was favored
by all the delegated from local labor ana
clvle organizations. The league was made
a permanent org-anlintion. Its line of work
broadened, and today It stands ready to
defend and protect laws that have been
enacted by the people of the state; to pro
mote and encourage the enactment of laws
which give to the people such reforms as
' wore not to be had by common consent of
past legislative bodies of the state; to use
the referendum on such laws not in har
mony and accord with the best Interests
of the state and its people.
The league will not support any candidate
for public offlco who Is not known to be a
. supporter of these amendments, 'which were
fought for so iong- ana so hard.
In all the states of our Union there Is
somewhere a fire smoldering in the form
or the initiative and referendum rights
which will burn Its way Into the minds of
a majority of the people, and then the peo
ple of state after state will enjoy these
sovereign rights. For the purpose of aiding
the movement In other states we give In
formation thut may be desired and encour
age the work.
The Initiative and referendum amend
ments have friends in all trades and voca
tions. They have enemies as well, chiefly
those who are within the. circle of profits
by machine politics, and the corporations
which. seek special privileges that give them
protection, concessions and profits from the
people without paying to the state a tax
or compensation even so small as it may
he If it Is more than thank you.
The supreme test will come sooner or
later, and at present there la a class of
people in the state who think these con
stitutional amendments are of little use.
or many laws would have already been
made, changed and revoked. This was foreseen-
and expected by the fathers of the
If any person doubta that the privileges
JEW THEATER PROJECTED
EAST SIDERS TALK OF " LOCAL
Grand Avenue Suggested as Proper
Location, Which Is Favored by
Architect and Builder.
While the question of erecting a thea
ter on Grand avenue is being apitated,
nothins definite has yet been accom
plished. W. I... Morgan.- an architect
and bt'llder. has interested himself in the
enterprise, and says he would like to
see - a theateY erected on Grand avenue.
At present the whole matter is in the
air, but may assume definite form with
in the next few months. The enterprise
lias not gone far enough to announce de
tails, but Mr. Morgan says if it does
materialize it will be organized on a sub
stantial plan that will insure soicces3.
lie does not care to have his name con
nected with any movement that does not
mean success, and will not now say more
than that the theater ciuestlon is be
ing considered. In his suggestions as to
the best way to build up a strong busi
ness center, on the East Side, Iewis M.
Head, in his talk before the East Sid
Business Men's Club, urged the impor
tance of a first-class theater.
BUILDING LARGE SAWMILL.
Flant of Sclsieh Lumber Co. Under
' Way at McKcnna, Wash.
One of the" owners of the Selsich Lum
ber Company. J. T. Gregory, whose home
Is at Ashland. Wis., passed through Port
land on his way to McKenna, the new
town near Tacoma, where the mill is be
ing erected. He said yesterday that the
mill Is expected to be in operation in
April or May, and will have a capacity
of 200,000 feet every ten hours. The com
pany owns large timber Interests In the
northern country, and Mr. Gregory him
self also has some timber tracts in this
state. In speaking of the condition of
affairs In the East, he. said:
"About every stick of timber is cut in
our state, and naturaly millowuers are
seeking opportunities elsewhere. It will
not be a great while until there will be
a string of mills down the Columbia and
around Portland, for you haile made but
a etart in that direction compared to
your great wealth of timber.
"I believe the banks of the country took
absolutely the only course open to them
In their action in going on a clearing
house basis. It saved the financial insti
tutions of the country beyond the ques
tion of a doubt. It stopped a senseless
scare and gave the banks an opportunity
to get Into shape to meet the drain oil
their resources caused by the unexpected
tightening of money in New York. The
bank of which I am cashier, the Ashland
National, while it did not have recourse
to clearing-house certificates, did practic
ally the same thing issued cashier's
checks and certificates of deposit, but
even then found at unnecessary to hold
our customers flown to any irksome
method of conducting their business. We
paid- out currency .right along, where it
was required for payrolls and like pur
poses. "Some of the cities to- the north of us
were hit pretty Bard, for they got caught
in thecopper flurry and were in bad
shape To stand sudden tightening In the
money market. There is much better feel
ing now in financial circles in our part
of the coutnry. but .in the big centers,
like Chicago, there is still some difficulty
In floating large enterprises.
"I am pleased with the appearance of
business matters hero in Portland, and
think the financial atmosphere is much
clearer on account of recent events show
ing up bad methods in certain quarters.
I am more tiian pleased with the prospect
of an early resumption of business by
the Merchants' -National Bank, for, with
the fine condition of ita resources, it was
criminal on the part of some of Its cus
tomers to fores It to suspend."
Mr. Gregory usually stops over in Port
land a few days when in this part of
the country to look after some interests
ho has In this state.
