To the Editor; It has been quite
generally agreed that under the
system of paid circulation of initia
tive and referendum petitions two
evils exist: the submission of many
measures for which there is no pop
ular demand, and the forging ot
signatures. To remove these evils I
shall propose an initiative measure
prohibiting payment for circulation
ot petitions but placing no restric
tion upon the right of the people to
circulate petitions for any measure
in which they feel an interest.
One of the fundamental purposes
of the Oregon System is to increase
the power of men and decrease the
power of money. I am surprised,
therefore,to find that there are some
sincere advocates of better govern
ment who oppose the plan of pro
hibiting paid circulation o( petitions
Most of those who will oppose my

satisfactorily in practice.
tend that if it is right in principle
it will ultimately be adopted and
will work in practice.
An initiative petition is supposed
to represent the desire of 8 per cent
of the voters. It does no such thing.
It represents merely the expendi
ture of a certain amount of money.
Possibly circulation ot petitions
serves to notify about 10 per cent of
the voters that the measure is being
proposed, but, if that is the end to
to be gained, il certainly could be
done more effectively by expending
the money in the printing and cir
culation of coppies of the bill which
the voters could read, rather than
in securing signaturs of voters to a
petition which few lake the time to
The adopting of my suggested
bill would make the petition repre
sent public opinion, for the number
of volunteer circulators would be in
proportion to the extent of public
desire for the measure.
I admit that so long as the cus
tom of paying circulators continues,
practically every measure must be
initiated in that manner, but I am
confident the time will come when
the duty of citizenship in procuring
and protecting desired laws under
the initiative and referendum will
be performed without special com
The hiring of paid circulators for
measures or candidates is no less
unrepresentative than the hiring oi
