Should Referendum Vote Knock Out Appropriation Dill the. State

jna proposed referendum on the appro-

'' ' t,,0M f svorlng the referendum are

, other hand, they are In favor of such
an institution, then it Is. manifest that

this state, as' any other state

to be self evident. .
- 'I'hera are many good oitlsens who
. Jel eve that aU higher publlo eduoaUon.
, Includlng.even the high schools, should
be abolished,, but this Is no longer an
' open question. Every state In the union,
every civilised nation of the world, has
i adopted aa a settled policy the giving
of the opportunity to all Its citlsens
. of obtaining an advanced education.
With this policy I am personally In en
tire accord, and on every occasion upon
which I have seen It put to the test
, of a Tote, the overwhelming majority
has sustained It - It la not a question
. of lout or bo normal schools; it 1s
. not a question of depriving the grade
sohools of proper ' support; it Is, in
i plain English, whether the University of
the State of Oregon H, to .be equipped
so that It can do the work for the peo

"The amount Involved Is tha sum" of
1310,00 for tha next two years. Js It
. needed T Will It be expended Judicious
ly T It seems to me these are the two
questions to be answered. The entire
body of the voters of the state cannot
In the nature of things, be expected to
be familiar with every detail of the
operation of every atate institution. !
These matters are left la. the hands of1
those delegated to ears for them. There
are therefore two ways left open to the
publlo generally of arriving at a eon
elusion. By comparison of the expen
ditures of other like Institutions under
substantially similar conditions, and by
the character of the men on whose rec
ommendation the appropriation Is made
and those responsible for Its expend!
Taking the first method, we find'
the following facts: Washington haa ap
propriated about 1400,000 for maintain
ing Its university for the biennial per
iod; Idaho, $280,000; California, nearly
$1,000,000; Nebraska levies an annual
tax of 1 mill, which would produce In
this state about $100,000 per year; Illi
nois appropriate $ 1.000,000 per annum)
Kan fas, $250,000.- This list might be
txtended Indefinitely and the net re
sult . would, I- believe, show that we
appropriate -, less money comparatively.
than any state. In the union) for this
purpose, tit would therefore appear
from this test that . the appropriation
Is toot extravagant, ,j " . :
"i"' Who pefeata Are. -
"On the other hand, the members of
the board of regents, who doubtless rec
ommended this appropriation and who
will certainly be responsible for its ex
penditure, f are: Cyme A. Dolph," J. G
A ln worth, Frederick - V. Bolman, of
Portland; Judge Robert B. Bean, who by
his position on the supreme bench be
longs to the state at large; N. I But
ler o' Dallas: J. 'W. Hamilton, of Rose-
burg: M. A. Miller, of Lebanon; Wll
Ham Smith of Baker City, and 8. H.
Friendly of Eugene. The names of each
and aU of these gentlemen are an abso
lute guaranty to -.every taxpayer that
the funds will be wlsel and honestly
expended.' : . -'-' .v-v
'The university Is here to stay, and
I sm glad of It, and tha people should
take pride In upholding It It will be
of Inestimable benefit to the state and
it should be placed in a position to do
the work It was created to carry on.
There is a greater eeonomla return to
the atate oa money wisely expended for
educational, than for any other par-
pose. ' v .-'
1 do not natter myself that this let
ter . will change the mind of any one
who desires to refer this question, but
It may tend to cause some to oonsldar
before signing the petition.' la ay opin
ion. If this measure is referred, the
appropriation will be ' sustained by
great majority, and the result win only
be, increased expense to the atata and
a temporary orlppllng of. the work of
the university. .
