In appropriation bUla. I hava nol yet
given It critical examination. I would
hav to look Into the subject more care
fully before expressing aji opinion. There
Is wide dlverf ence . of views on this
Ouestloaand Scarce! jr anyone 1s now
prepared to say Intelligently Just what
the law contemplates. I wtt say, bow
ever, without a critical study of the law,
that I Incline to the view that separate
Items may not legally be voted on under
the referendum. . . - . -
Concerning the appropriations. I bave
no hesitancy ' In savins that the..'suxns
I ofTnoneyrglvn to some- of the' educa
tional Institutions were too large. Par
ticularly la thla true as ti the normal
schools. Rerardlna the state Institu
tions proper, such as the penitentiary,
blind school, ssylum for the insane and
those Institutions that are part of the
regular working machinery of the state
'government, I believe the -appropriations
were not too large. Xll of these instil
tutlons axe filled to overflowing, and-the
quarters are How taxed to the limit of
their capacity to-aoeommodate (he in
mates., . JLarger ' appropriations were
necessary on aeconnf of 'the natnrai
growth that has taken place In the state
' and the consequent increase in the num
ber of fruona that must be cared for.
Bnt I hold that the educational Insti
tutions as a, class received too : much
money.' Some" ot the m were given toe
much, and "some of hearv should ihave
been cut-off entirely. In my message, to.
the legislature I recommended that the
normal schools be reduced in number,
and I hold the same opinion now that
I did wnenl wrote my message. In
deed, now that the legislature haa-closed
its session, I sm more than ever con
firmed In my opinion,' and believe, that'
the normal 'Schools should not ask the
i state for such largo ' sums of money
when by their own showing they prove
that the expense forwvery pupil turned
out as n graduate la exorbitant
' Throughout the session I Insisted that
all appropriation' bills be adopted with
out the' emergency clause attached, and
my action was prompted by the desire
to" preserve the , people's right to use
- the referendum In the case of any par-
' ticular bill. . In pursuance- with : this
and after some hesitation on the part of
some members of . the legislature to
recognise the right of this position, the
bills were finally paased in shape to
permits the referendum ,Jo be Invoked
on all appropriations, the emergenoy
'clause being omitted from measures to
which it should be attached. In my
. opinion this is Important. ' : '
The people of Oregon wish to preserve
: the Initiative and referendum, and would
not indorse .in attempt to deprive them
of their right to protest against un
'wlse acta by their legislative represent
atives. - ' ' !',.'.-.
WAS THE BILL STOLEN?'
' Measure to gappross Bmeket nope Dis

- Strongly suggestive of the fate of the
antl-garabllng bill, which was stolen
while In transit from the bouse to the
' senate at the special session of the
legislature In 1V3. Is the story of the
bill Introduced at the session Just ended,
for the suppression of bucket shops. -,

' senate and recommended for passage by
' the senate committee on education, to
which It had been referred, the bill mys
terlouxly disappeared at some time Fri
day afternoon. Just before the adjourn

should be, professes to know nothing of

There Is no questJon that the. bill
reached the desk of the chief clerk with
a. favorable report from, the committee,
- some, time Friday morning.. But there
all trace of It Is lost That It would haveTbmclals that the amount. or -equipment
passed. If placed on final reading,, there
is little doubt, for. a majority of the sen

selves In favor of It. But at the very
nick of time to prevent its enactment

1 The bucket-shop bill was Introduced In
the house by Representative Hermann,
and was referred to the committee on
'cities and towns,' where for nearly three
- weeks It- slumbered, Than It was re
ported passed and sent to the senate.
Judge Carer appeared before the sen
ate committee on education in behalf of
certain Portland firms sod made a pro
tracted argument against the measure,
but the committee decided to report the
bill favorably. . Friday morning the bill.
with the accompanying report, was upon
Clerk Moorhead'a desk, with other house
bills swatting final action. Fifty bills
were acted upon by the senate during the
day. - but the clerk did not read the
