AMKNII IMMMAKV LAW.
Some are inclined to decry
the effort of W. S. U'Ren of
Clackamas to have the Direct
Primary Nominating Law so
amended eo as to regulate as far
ns possible the use of money in
campaigns. No argument has
yet been proJuceil against the
proposed legislation but the ef
fort is made to throw cold water
ou the proposal by aiming
shafts of ridicule at the activity
of Mr. U'Ren in legislative
matters. The government, says
the Oregonian, is divided into
four departments executive, ju
dicial, legislative and Mr. U'Ren.
This paper does net ussume to
account for Mr. U'Ren's inter
est in the adoption of the initia
tive and referendum amend
ment to the constitution and the
enactment of initiative laws
thereunder. Preparation of
bills and circulation of petitions
require time and money. Why
U'Ren's interest and whence
his pay are unanswered ques
tions. The work he is doing is
not carried on just for the fun
of it. Probably he has suffi
cient income to give of his time
and money is furnished by him
self and kindred spirits, through
patriotic devotion to the cause.
Then aside from pecuniary con
siderations it no doubt is a
source of great satisfaction to
Mr. U'Ren to see his ideas en
grafted in the statute books of
But what Mr. U'Ren has done
or is doing any one else may do.
He has no monopoly on legisla
tion under the new regime.
The privilege is held out to
every citizen and objection to
amendment of the Primary Law
or any other proposed legisla
tion because U'Ren favors it, will
not lie. That the Primary Law
be amended to regulate the use
of money is of itself meritorious.
Candidates lavished money too
freely in the late primaries.
Without legislative restraint,
corruption will follow. Regard
Jess of the inexplicable activity
of the U'Ren?, a law requiring
publicity of campaign expenses
should be enacted. Let the next
legislature take hold of the mat

sure the people will at the elec
