not get good brick; and after rejecting
a number of carloads, I suggested that
we build one arch out of concrete. The
chief engineers of the Northern Pacific,
for which road I was rebuilding the out,
consented. ' I built one arh of concrete

UP FOR ItllTIATIVE
Three Years' Trial Finds-Legislative
fattory and They Are Now
Used by Former Opponents.
,' Guthrie. Okla., Feb. 11. -After three
years of experience of the Initiative and
referendum, one of the most novel of
experiments In legislation put into ef
fect by the Oklahoma constitution, the
people of the new state are very well
aatisfted with, the results, and there Is
no, disposition on any band to suggest
the repeal or even the material modifi
cation of the system as It now. exist. -
'One of the strongest proof of Its
success has been the fact that It has
been sdopted by the very people who
most strongly opposed it in the begin
ning. The Republican leaders In , the
constitutional convention were very gen
erally oppoaed to It, and denounced It
as socialistic snd Impracticable, yet the
Republican state committee has made
use of the referendum to obtain a popu
lar vote upon the "ribbon ballot". gener
al election law passed by the last leg
islature, which gives the control of all
of the election machinery of the state to
the party In control of the state admin
istration. ; Railroad attorneys and the
representatives of capital and coneerva
tlsm opposed, it as radical and revolu
tionary, yet the railroads themselves
have used the Initiative to present to the
people the proposed repeal of certain
sections of the constitution which they
claim restrict railroad building In the
sate. ..v ; .
- JTot a Once la Sffeet.
While provision was made by the con
stitution Itself for the adoption of the
Initiative ' and referendum. It was not
put Into practical operation until after
laws to put .it ihto effect had been
adopted by the first state -legtslaure.
The per cent of the total number of
voters required for the different classes
of petitions was fixed by the constitu
tional convention, but1 none of the de
tails of the scheme worked out It re
quires ( per" cent of the legal voters, as
shown by the vote cast at the last gen
eral election, to Initiate a law, .15 per
cfcnt to Initiate a constitutional amend
ment, and 5 per cent to secure the re
ferring to the people of an act already
passed by the legislature. ' ' . ,
In order to secure to the people the
right of a referendum onHmy law which
did not meet their approval, the consti
tution also provided that no laws stiould
go into effect until 90 days after the ad
journment of ' the ' legislature, except
such as were necessary for the preser
vation -.Of , the public, peace, health or
safety, and a two thirds vote In each
house was required In. order to declare
such an emergency, which would put the
law' Into , effect Immediately. " The
"emergency clause" has undoubtedly
been abused and many laws put in 1,0 iro
ns ' agency.
which had no emergency character, yet
it Is hard to see -where any other plan
could be devised, which would allow the
immediate enforcement or reai emer
gency measure and yet suspend the op
eration of othvrs In order to allow a
referendum vote if desired. , , , ''
your propositions! ,
A law or part of a law may be re
ferred by. the legislature Itself under
the referendum, as well as on petition
of the people, and the first state legis
lature under this provision made use of
the new Idea by referring four proposi
tions to the. people. There were ' two
proposed constitutional amendments, one
for the adoption of the Torrens land
system and the other to remove the re
strictions, on the permanent location of
the state capital before l!USi a prop,
osltlon ' intended to get " an exprea
glon of 1 sentiment " from ' the people
on the Idea of selecting an Ideal site for
the capital and building a new city
there, and a proposition for the reten
tion or rejection of te state dispensary
plan of handling the liquor question. ,
All were voted on at the general elec
tion -In 1808. The two constitutional
amendments received a majority of the
votea cast on these particular subjects,
but not a majority of all the votes cast
at the election, and were therefore de
clared lost. , The ideal, capital or "New
Jerusalem" ,. proposition . . was . deolared
carried,1 and the dispensary proposition
was voted "down by. an overwhelming
vote, but the election on that proposi
tion was later declared void by' the su
preme court, on account of technical Ir
regularities In the title of the proposi
tion as submitted to the people. This Is
the only case so far ; where the people
have been unable . to carry . out their
will through the initiative and refer
endum and the' only case where the sys
tem may be said to have failed. ? ' -,
Early Tses of Initiative. ...
' The first initiated bill was also voted
on at the same election. It waa one for
the sale of all of the school lands of
the state, and was defeated by a big
majority. ' , . J-
The second Initiated bill, and the sixth
state question, was the bill by State
Senator .Campbell Russell, carrying out
the "New Jerusalem" idea embodied In
his resolution. which was adopted at the
first election, but ; on which no action
was taken by the legislature. ' It was
filed on December II. 10, with 22,881
signatures to the petition, but a pro
test to the sufficiency of the petitions
was filed five days later. , Secretary of
State Cross 'decided In favor of. the pe
titioners, but the matter is now tied up

The same condition exists In regard to
'the woman's suffrage amendment to the
constitution, the petition for which wss
filed on January 6, 1910, with 11,543
v Plrst tlae of Referendum.
' The first measure orr which" the ref

Republicans filed referendum petitions,
with 30,385 signatures. That is slso
In court now on an appeal from the bal
lot title prepared by the attorney gen
eral for the proposed measure to be sub
mitted, 'as required by law.
The only initiative or referendum
proposition which Is ready for a vote at
the present time Is therefore the consti
tutional,, amendment submitted by the
federation of commercial clubs on behalf
of the railroads, removing several con
stitutional restrictions, which' seems to
have, hampered railroad building, and
also limiting materially the power of
the corporation . commission to control

probably In April to submit a number of
the pending propositions, but in view of
the fact that the others are all in court,
