"There is a way to tire the
people of making so many laws.
That is by giving them their fill.
We are fast coming to the point
with our referendum where there
are so many people projosing so
many laws that the voters will
reject the most of them. Still,
the initiative and referendum has
the advantage that while the vot

OR MONET RETUNDED.
Bourne and William S. U'Rcn
came in, share and share alike,
for a severe grilling last night,
when J. D. Stevens spoke at
Selling-IIirsch Hall. Owing to
stormy weather the audience was
not large, but it was very evi
dent that most of his hearers
were in accord with Mr. Stevens.
When A. M. Himes arose at the
close of the address and made a
motion to uphold U'Ren and his
policies, the words were hardly
out of his mouth when a loud
chorus of "noes" went up.
JStevens denounced U'Ren as a
scoundrel" and a "blackgiard",
comparing him with Parrolles in
Shakespeare's "All's Well That
Ends Well." Referring to Mr.
U'Ren's apology for leaving out
the enacting clause of the anti
pass law, which invalidated the
law, he said that U'Ren was rid
ing on a pass all the time he was
advocating the law, and that aft
er he had made the mistake,
which Mr. Stevens intimated was
done purposely, he turned about,
apparently, and advocated the
giving of passes by urgent enact
ment of a law to that effect in
the last legislature.
Stevens Intimated that when
he was supporting U'Ren, a few
years ago, he was being duped.
But he said when he found U'Ren
out, he ceased to follow his lead.
Mr. Stevens referred to Lin
coln Steffen's article in a recent
issue of the American Magazine,
"Steffens would have us be
lieve," said Mr. Stevens, "that
U'Ren is a sort of hero with a
halo of glory about his head,
Brownell is also referred to, but
Brownellis a white angel by com
To Bourne and U'Ren Stevens
charged the death of a man nam
ed Kruse, who was at Salem dur
ing the notorious holdup session
of the legislature.
"If it hadn't been for the
'house of mirth.' " said Stevens,
"Kruse would be alive today.
His death was a tragic thing.
They had him there and kept
him full for several days, and at
last one of the members of the
legislature came to U'Ren and
said" 'I think Kruse is pretty bad
off. We had better send for the
doctor.' But U'Ren only replied
'Don't worry about him. I am a
doctor myself. I'll look out for
Kruse. ' The result was the man
died and was taken home and
buried by his friends."
Mr. Stevens referred to Sena
tor Bourne as not being a repre
sentative of any political party,
or of anybody in Oregon, except
a very few.
"Under the direct primary
law," continued Mr. Stevens,
"the majority has not ruled.
The Statement No. 1 man wants
to know what we shall do. I
say, do as we have done until we
have changed the government to
"The people favoring State
ment No. 1 and the direct pri
mary law are laying the charge
that the referendum is dead.
The truth of the matter is that
direct legislation, the initiative
and referendum, will continue on
i until it becomes the great funda
! mental law of the United States.
l ou need have no fear of any
thing happening to the initiative
"A great many people will try
a great many schemes and make
a great many laws, but the initia
tive and nrf)rndun i hre to
"I might cite the language of
Mrs. Judge Waldo, who advises
the Grange to go through all the
proposed laws. If they have any
doubt about any one of them
they are to sit as a jury. I am
satisfied that the referendum will
come to be regarded in time as
the basis of political action
throughout the United States.
"We come now to the direct
primary law. As a rule, the sons
and daughters of great men are
very ordinary persons. So it is
with the direct primary law
While we are satisfied that the
initiative and referendum is all
right, the direct primary law is
one of those poor children. In
fact, I can hardly call it legiti
mate. It is rather a mongrel.
Here Mr. Stevens told of the
provisions of the primary law,
and continued: .
The democratic party is tak
ing a great interest this year in
the republican party's nomina
tions. My religious friend, Gin-
gett Thomas, charges that he
never saw in all his political life
such a complication. He almost
charges perjury against his breth
ren; that they are doing- all in
their power to mix in republican
When Bourne ran for sena
tor, he could not get the nomina
tion to save his life through the
republican machine, which knew
him. But when the votes were
counted, II. M. Cake, who was
running against him, found him
self GOO votes short. The defen
dants of this direct primary law
would have us believe that Bourne
got the majority of the votes at
"Returning to the direct pri
mary law, it would, I believe, if
taken to the supreme court, be
declared invalid, for it is uncon
stitutional. It does discriminate,
and is unjust to the people who"
are obliged to live under it."
Resolutions Adopted by me Recent
Washington Grange Convention
Nekl iti UJc Ou.
Whereas there is a l i!l coming
before the voters t f the state at
the coming election in June, pro
viding for the exemption of a
large amount of I ropcrty from
taxation and transferring the
share of the taxes which that
class of property now bears to
the real estate of the state, which
is already carrying more than its
just share, and
Whereas, we believe that the
best interests of the state demand
that the burden of taxation
should be equally distributed up
on all classes of property, and
that present laws should be so
enforced as to com pell every form
of property that has been hereto
fore, in a large measure, escap
ing to pay its just and full share
rather than to give any of it a
legal means of escaping tribute.
Therefore be it resolved that
this Convention, representing the
Granges, the owners of real es
tate and the taxpayers of Wash

mends to the voters of Washing

conductor, who brought the train
to a sudden standstill, when it
was discovered that the axle on
