IN Washington, tho snnromo court has put, an end to tho
abouso of the emergency clause by the legislature by
holding that it is ineffective, even when added to the bill,
unless a real emergency exists.
In playing partisan politics, the Washington legislature
passed a' measure over the governor's veto, reorganizing
the state land board so as to deprive the governor of repre
sentation thereon. The bill changes the personnel of the
board, substituting the state treasurer and secretary of
state for the members of the state tax commission and
state fire warden, to serve with the state land commission
er. The officials legislated out of office made a test case
on the emergency clause, which was attached to the bill to
make the law gointo effect at once and prevent a referendum.
The court held that the emergency clause was inoper
ative and in violation of the constitutional provision which
prevents laws going into effect immediately, except such
laws as may be necessary "for the immediate preservation
of the peace, health or safety, support of the state govern
ment and its existing institutions" and declares the act will
take effect ninety days after the legislature has adjourned.
In Washington a republican legislature is taking away
the power of the executive because he happens to be a dem
ocrat, and using the emergency clause to accomplish it and
deny the people the right of referendum. In Oregon, a
republican legislature has concentrated all the power in
the hands of the governor simply because he happens to be
a republican, by the passage of the spoils bill, also using
the emergency clause to accomplish it.
There is no question but that the supreme court of Ore
gon will decide similarly to the Washington court if ap
peal be made, and hold the emergency clause on the spoils
bill and judge creating bills null and void, because no real
The Oregon test ought to be made, not because the
spoils bill is in itself so objectionable as to demand the use
of the referendum, but in order to end, once and for all, the
legislature's pernicious pratice of attaching the emergency
clause to trivial office cheating bills, partism. political and
unpopular measures it is afraid to permit the people to
pass upon an abuse that threatens to grow with each suc
ceeding session, now that the precedent has been estab
lished and approved by the governor, despite the violation
of his campaign pledges.

0 THREE YEARS FOR
Sulphur Most Valuable Alfalfa .Fertilizer
(By V. C. Itelmei-s, Kvicrinient Station, Talent, Ore.)
Dunne; tho summer of 1914 we pub
lished n preliminary nrticle in the lo
cal papers Riving tho results we had
obtained up to that time with sulphur
ns a fertilizer on alfalfa. Our work
was still in its infancy, untl it will bo
recalled that wo dimply gnve the re
sults of our experiments without nt
temptinp to explain them. The re
sults had been so startling, nnd so
contrary to tho teachings of agricul
tural chemistry, that we refrained
Wo found that by usinp pure sul
phur nt the rato of three- hundred
pounds per acre, we had increased
the yield of alfalfa on ono typo of
soil moro than ono hundred per cent
over tho adjacent check plots which
Since that time wo have started n
large number of experiments with
pure sulphur nnd other mntcrinls con
taining sulphur, in various sections
of tho valley, on various types of soil.
This work is being continued on an
elaborate scnla this yenr. and by tho
end of the present season wo hopo to
huv th most important pbnses of tho
work concluded. Sinco publishing
tho preliminary nrticlo we linva ob
tained some very vnlunblc and inter
esting results, nnd it is deemed advis
able to publish thesp nt this time. A
complelo report will bo published at
the end of Ihe present senson.
Sulphur in A 1 fulfil May
Previous to the publication of our
results last year, sulphur had never
been seriously regarded ns u fcrliliner
for alfalfa or other crops. It has
been well known ns long ns agricul
tural chemistry has been a science
that all of our cultivated plants use
sulphur, and ennnot grow without it.
The chemical analysis of these plants,
however, indicated that sulphur was
present m comparatively small quan
tities. It had nlso been found that
practically all soils contain sulphur;
apparently enough to meet tho re
quirements of our cultivated plnnts.
Recently it hns been found tnht tho
old chemical nnulysis of. plnnts for
sulphur are practically worthless and
for this reason. Tho chemist in an
alysing tho plunt for sulphur would
take n certain definite weight of the
plants, bun it nnd annlyzc tho aches,
lie knew thnt the ushes contained nil
tho potash, lime, iron, etc., nnd took
for granted that tho ashes also con
tained all the sulphur. Very recent
work by some of our best agricultural
chemists shows that this is not tnic.
By a now method of analysis (which
docs not burn the plant) they find
thnt practically all of our cultivated
plants contain considerably more sul
phur than was indicnted by tho earl
ier crude methods, nnd. that some of
theso plnnts contain many timei
more. Kor example, it hns been
found thnt'rice contains just one hun
dred times us much sulphur as wns
indicated by the carlipr nnalysiw. In
many of our plants the sulphur exists
in a very volatile form, nnd when
the plant is burned the sulphur is
driven off as gas.

Remedies Against Predatory Animals
Tho committee appointed by the
Farmers and Fruitgrowers League to
Investigate the beet ways and menus
of alleviating the damage wrought
by the various predatory animals,
such as the gopher, squirrel, rabbit,
and rat, deslro tp make the follow
ing report. This report Is a digest
of various publications and commun
ications received from the department
of agriculture and tho Oregon Agri
culture College, added to tho exper
lenco of tho committee In work of
this nature. For' convenience the
committee has divided this report
into four parts. 1. General Recom
mendation. 2. Specific Remedies.
U. How to Mal;o tho Poisons, or
Where to Buy Them, and tho Various
Traps Recommended by the Commit
tee. 4. Precautionary Measures.
Work of this nature should bo
started as tpon as possible, for two
roasons first, on account of the
scarcity of other naturol foods; at
this time ot the year the animals will
take more readily to any poisoned
fotod that Is put out for them; and
second, because one animal killed
now Is worth a good many more
killed later, as they will bo caught
boforfl the brooding HWHr
The Importanco of co-operation In
this work should bo strongly im
pressed upon the people of the val
ley, b'ecause nearly all of theso ani
mals are migratory, and will travel
from one place tp another, and ef
fective work ran only be done when
there Is concentrated action by every
ono, so that one may not be overrun
from his neighbor's place.
All brush piles slvould bo burnod,
as they harbor practically all of tho
predatory animals and various de
structive insects as well.
The commltteo wishes to call par
ticular attention to the precautionary
measures In regard to handling the
poisons given later In this report.
