TILE SUNDAY OREGOXIAX, PORTLAND JANUARY 12, 1908. 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 Initiative movement. If any person doubta that the privileges JEW THEATER PROJECTED EAST SIDERS TALK OF " LOCAL PLAYHOUSE. 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. TRANSFERS ARE NORMAL Centinued From Page 2.) $iS00.

In the near future we may find it sel dom necessary for the people to take the reins of government by individual votes. They will instruct their representatives to enact such laws as are demanded by the people. The league Is a non-partisan organization In its political sense. Any citizen who is in sympathy with its purp6se may become a member. It Is essential that time of peare in the time to prepare nnd ever be ready for war; .and every supporter of the Initiative and referendum should become affiliated with the league movement, so when the time comes that these amend ments are taken to the blfrhest court it Is possible to appeal to we shall know and be prepared to defend our state constitu tion as it stands amended to data.
