Salem, Ore., May 22. Although,
as he claims, advise was received
from the "best lawyer in Coos
connty, whom we", are going lo
elect district attorney of that dis
trict at the next election," J.
Quick, a Coos county citizen, had
to drive all the way from Coquillo
to Salem to receive information
that the initiative and referendum
act of last year contained an
emergency clause and that it is in
full force and effect. Incidentally
ho learned that his big roll of peti
tions for a referendum of the acts
increasing the salaries of the
treasurer, school superintendent,
and clerk of Coos county which
had been prepared under the old
act and been repealed were not
worth the paper upon which the
signatures were subscribed and
that all his work and 'rouble in
connection with it had been for
naught. When Quick, who had
been attending a baptiat confer
ence at some point in the valley,
arrived this morning and present
ed the petitions to the secretary of
Btate for filing, a look of exultation
shown on his face which was plain
ly evident. It quickly gave place
to a lock of pain and disappoint
ment when ho learned the peti
tions were invalid and that, in
stead of having secured the signa
tures 5 percent of the voting popu
lation of the state petttions only
bore 200 names, or the same pro
portion of the voters of Coos coun
ty and instead of being verified by
the circulators of the petitions, as
the new law rcqtrres, the signa
tures were attested only by the
county clork. Mr. Quick is 71
years old and a socialist political
ly, and very much chagrined over
the failure of his effort to refer the
measures which he contended the
tax-paying public were opposed to
and stated that the expense get
ting up the petitions, exclusive the
cost of the journey to Salem
amounted to $50. After a long
consultation with the utlorriey
general Crawford, during which he
was set right regarding the opera
tions of the new law and after
taking notes upon the details of
how the initiative can be invoked
upon the acts of tho legislature,
he departed from the state house
a sadder but wiser man. He
would not say whether or not the
intention of invoking the initia
tive upon tho acts. Ho did not
disclose the name of the "learned"
attorney from whom he secured
advice upon petitions.
The members of the G. A. R. will

Substantial Impairs Will Be Mede

Life Savers Will Soon llnvc Service
Across The Day to
Captain Nelson of tho United
States Life Saving station located
on the lower bay will soon havo a
large forco of men engaged In mak
ing extensive Improvements at tbe
station. The boat house Is to be re
moved from Its present location to
a point about 50 yards nearer the
;ater, where It will be placed on a
goad tihj foundation several feet
above high tide water. This change
Is made necessary on account of the
fact that and blows over the" present
track leading from the boat house
to tho water, making It exceedlndly
hard to launch it. In addition to the
change mentioned the dwelling occur-
pled by the captlan and his crew,
is to be raised on a new foundation
and pnt in good order. This work
would have commenced some time
ago but for tho fact -that the gov
ernment has not yet sent its repre
sentative here to oversee it.
The station Is soon to be connect
ed with the outside world by a tel
ephone line, tho supplies for which
have been on the ground for sev
eral weeks with the exception of
the poles. It will require about 150
poles to run the line from the sta
tion to Empire and to renew all tho
poles for the line now In use be
tween the bar lockout and tho stat
ion. These poles have been con
tracted for some time but there has
beon some difficulty about filling
the order. Captain Nelson Is auxloun
that the workbe completed in a
short time and is doing all in his
power to get poles by reletting tho
contract, dividing it among soveral
parties in hopes that at least a part
of It will be filled.
The telephone line will run along
the beach north of the station to
a point directly opposite Empire City
from which place a large cable carry
ing the wires will be laid accross
the bay. This line Is to be connected
with Captain Mageo's residence of
Empire but for the present time will
not be connected with tho Pacific
States telephone company line.
The government In Installing a tel
ephone line for theuse of Its life
saving crews will stand the expense
of a line from tho station to the
captain of the tug, but will not In
cur tho additional expense of out
side connections. This makes It nec
essary for the telephone company to
stand tho expense of connctlng tho
line with theirs. This may be accom
plished shortly after the lino Is put
across the bay. Nothing definite In
regard to this known by Captain
Nelson. Following all the changes
and reparilng to bo done at tho
station every thing will be painted
in first class shape making the now
well kept buildings and equipment
ihow up in first class style.

Sandusky May 21 Sharp Issues
with tho recent utterances of Chalr
commltteo were taken today by I. F.
Mack, tho well known publisher of
this city. Mack while disclaiming
authority to speak for any one except
himself said be was confident that
the senator from Ohio would bo re
turned to his seat without difficulty
when the time arrived for choosing
his successor. Ho asserted also that
much of the criticism recently direct
ed against Senator Foraker in cer
tain parts of the state la unjust aud
Mack speaks of Foraker as ono of
tho best if not the abelest In tho
senate today. Mack says Taft, while
while having delightful personality
hsa never done anything for the of
fice and that he has never been even
a political factor as he understands
It. Taft has never claimed or tried
to be a political person. As tho party
leader, Mack thinks ho Is not to be
compared with Foraker.
