Eection Will Be Statewide to Vote Upon
Petitions for Referendum on Various
Measures Passed at Last Legislature
Supreme Court Decides
la reoent decision of Um Supreme
Court in which tbe constitutionality of
Um Day bill, providing for the special
election to be held In Oregon this fall,
was tested, the measure was held to
be constitutional, thus reversing the
decision of Judge Galloway.
The opinion Is written by Justice
Burnett, who holds thst the legislature
can do anything which the constitution
does not prohibit. The opinion Is
based upon the principle laid down In
the opinion, that "the legislature it
self, acting directly, could rave refer
red to the people any or all the laws
enacted, and It is not perceived why it
could not with equal propriety annex a j
lawful condition to a referendum of I
the ssme bills ordered by petition. J
It Is held thst the act sufficiently
states the messure upon whioh a vote
will be so taken, that there was then
actual material In existence subject to
the referendum, and that it was com
petent for the legislature to provide
for the referendum of its own measures
It is alio competent for the legisla
ture to anticipate a condition likely to
arise in the future and consequently !

spect the orchards there.
The peer or fire blight Is the most
serious of all the diseases which at
tack the pear and apple. It is a con
tagious disease of bacterisl origin,
which, under proper conditions, msy
sttack any psrt of the tree. Besides
the pear and apple, the quince, wild
crat-apple, and other trees are subject
to attacks of the disesse.
The blight is caused by a minute or
ganism belonging to the bacteria and
known technically as Bsccillua amy
lovrua. It is a rod-shaped, motile germ
which divides very rapidly by simple
fission and is found In immense numbers
in the diseased tissue. The germs ate

about by insects, which after visiting

covered witn the organisms contained
in the sticky exudation that develops
under favorable conditions from old
cankers in the spring, inoculate the
flowers In their search for nectar. One
of the moat fruitful sources ot Infec

is cut into, the tools become infected
and serves as inocualtlng Instruments

is to cut out the diseased parts, gray

The opinion disposes of the conten
tion that the law takes effect upon the
happening of a contingency briefly,
holding the law does not so depend, its
going into effect at once, but the elec
tion may depend upon a contingency.
The opinion is exhaustive, covering all
points of the case, and sustains the
constitutionslity of the law through
out. The result of which is that there
will be an election held next Novem

filed in the office of the secretary of
state, ssking that the following meas

Phil S. Bates, Publisner of the Pac
ific Northwest who was in Lakevtaw
last week with the "Myng Squad" ot
Portland, stated that he would return
here about the 13at of August in com
psny with President J. M. Averill of
the Portlsnd Chamber of Commerce.
The Itinerary of their trip will include
about the same territory as that re
cently eovered by the "Flying Squad."
The Porland Chamber of Commerce
is composed of the heads of the biggest
Jobting, manufacturing and shipping
interests, and their work is largely
carried on with the national lawmakers,
taking np such big problems ss trans
portation, shipping, harbor and river
improvements. This will be the first
trip through this section representing
the orgsnizatipn which is indicative that
the Portland business men are begin
ing to awaken to the wonderful pos
sibilities of Central and Southeastern
Oregon, and the immense trade which
Is steadily growing larger. This trip
of Mr. Averill's and Mr. Ba'.es' will no
doubt do a great deal toward Interest
ing influential men in the development
of thia region.
U'Ren a Republican
W. S. U'Kn. single tsx advocate
and at the Inst Presidential election a
aupporter of Theodore , Roosevelt, is
admittedly basing his csmpalgn for
Governor of Oregon largely on the hope
of receiving the Republican nomina
tion at the primary next May. ' There
has been considerable doubt heretofore
as to whether Mr. U'Kwi would aspire
to the highest office in this stste as a
Republican, despite bis flirtation with
the Progressive camp last November,
or as an Inaependent candidate, buti)e
bis now quoted as having put them all
at rest, and will make the race on the
Republican ticket.
It is reported that Fred Moore, the

N.-C.-0. TO MAKE
Commercial Agent of Road
Q I v e s Encouragement
on Recent Trip.
T. E. Giller. Commercial Agent of
the Nevada-Callforna-Oregon Railway,
was in Lakeview last week from bis
nesdqoaters at Reno. He was looking
over the territory adjacent to the line
soliciting tonnage for outshlpments.
The N.-C.-O. is making special effort
to Induce local farmers to ship their
produce to outside markets, and Mr.
Giller statad that as soon aa this busi
ness was started bis road would estab
lish joint rates with tbt Southern Pa
cific and Western Pacific lines to justi
fy the transportation of tonnage from
thia section.
This mstter wjll be received with
great interest by farmers of this valley
aa it will afford a market for their pro
duo at a price which will encourage
the.:: to increase their acreage and
yields. Heretofore without the assur
ance of these joint rstes producers
couldn't depend upon fhlpping out
their commodities aa the freight rates
have prohibited them from netting
reasonable returns.

Portland, Oregon. July 26, 1913.
Editor Examiner,
Lakeview, Oregon.
In perusing tb pages of tbe lsst
issue of the Examiner, the headline
"We Have Moved', impels mi to
make a few remarks, with your kind
After a continuous residence in Lake
view, trom 1885 to 1904, and during all
that lime doing duty on Tbe Examiner
(beginning as devil and tecoming
editor and proprietor in 1893,) you can
see 1 still have some interest in the
movements of my long time friend.
The Examiner never was much on the
move, except fur tbe uplift of human
ity and the good will of all. This is
the second move that I can recall.
The first was in 1894, when all hands
carried the old hand press serosa tbe
street to the new Masonic building,
which wss then considered very com
modious and modern quarters.' It
might be adued that there waa also in
cluded in the moving a juo press, a few
esses of type suit a large pair of
shears. Tbe Examiner prospered in '
its new home, and laid the foundation
for what is now the best eonntryjweek
ly in Oregon.
The most crushing blow the Exam
iner ever received waa in May, 1900
when the entire business section of
Lakeview was burned. Nothing waa
left to tell the tale except a smsll job
press, a few handtula of type and a
can of red ink. One aide of the paper
had already been printed the Saturday
before, and thia having alao been sav
ed, permitted The Examiner to come
out on its regular publication day, the
day following tbe tire. It was some
what shrunken in size, and hardly
readable, but proved The Examiner's
ever readiness to serve its readers
with every issue on time. We were
greatly interested in seeing the first
psge of this famous issue published in
The Examiner a few weeks ago.
There were troublesome times with
the publication of the paper for many
