At the coming June election the peo
ple of the State of Oregon are to decide af
very important matter. They will by
their votes either tdopt er reject a Con

be termed a " Mild form."
The two last legislatures voted to sub
mit the proposed amendment to the
suffrages of the people at the polls.
There has been organized the Direct
Legislation League nf Oregon, whoee
avowed object is "the adoption by the
people of the initiative and referendum
amendment to the Constitution of the
state of Oregon at the general election
in June, 1002."
