May Call a Special Session
If th.e People Dena$$!d It.
Kind of
The People Are Waiting Ilfr? Mie Chief
Executive to
Governor Lord huu all along exhib
ited a disposition to ncccdc to the de
mands of the people In the matter of
calling an extra session of the legisla
ture. He said today that 110 direct
request for a special session had
reached him. Upon thta It can bo
prcdloted that he has not as yet deter
mined to call an extra session, and
will not, unless formal demands arc
made by the people Oregonlnn,
Jan. 23.
Vriie above paragraph in today's Or-
egonlan Ir most Important. It is tho
first formal utterance of tho Governor
of Oregon to the effect that he Is in
favor of an extra session of tho legis
lature to pass reform measures, prem
ised upon the hypothesis that thcro In
a call for such an extra session froih
tho people.
The challenge is thrown down in tho
Oregon Ian editorially that the reason
the governor will not call an extra
Mfiaion-is that he is unwilling tapart
with alleged large unconstitutional
emoluments. In legal parlance, this
brings the issue squarely before the
people. The governor Intimates that
ho would call a special session to pass
reform bills, If tho people demand It.
TheOregonlan says ho will not do so
on account of his Interest in unlawful
The Issue cannot longer be avoided.
Tho crisis Is now upon the Republi
can party, and It must be faced reso
lutely, fearlessly and Intelligently.
The Journal Is opposed to a special
session with a domand coming ns it
did from the old Portland ring politi
cians; but TnE Journal to not op
posed to a special session called in tho
Interests of the people. The Jour
nal believes uovernor Loru is an
honest man, and wants to give the
people relief from extravagant legisla
tion and excessive and improper ap
propriations milde by tho last legisla
ture. That kind of a legislature tho
people of Oregon would hall with joy.
That kind of a special session could
relieve tho people of several hundred
thousand dollars taxation for this year,
and a quarter of a million dollars in
etato and county taxes next year.
That kind of a special session tho
people of Oregon demand. All they
need is an opportunity to express
themselves in favor of it. A special ses
ion demanded by the Portland ring pol
iticians, called for political purposes
and to carry out political schemes,
the people do not want. Tho people
want atnecial session called purely
for business purposes, to lop off useless
commissions, to abolish unnecessary
offices, to cut down extravagant sal
aries and to wipe out appropriations
for institution that should not prop
erly bo supported by tho state. Such
a special session the people
want, and want badly. As tho
executive of this state, Governor
Lord sees and knows the whole situa
tion in which the people of Oregon
find themselves. That situation was
Jwcll described in the governor's mes
sage to the legislature. Tho struggle
over the senatorshlp made it Imjofr

now so such obstacle in the way.

' -' j

v. , M
Governor Lord can how call a .special
session, place the whole situation be
fore the people nndj tho legislature,
lay before them suggestions for re
trenchment arid e'ednomy of such a
specific character that no member of
the legislature could misunderstand
tho purposo for wslch ho would be

1st in thercxtrtv Session If tho call
to duty was mnddo plain that no
man "thoughlicbo a fool or a way far
lug man could err therein."
Tho governor should specify about
what he thinks should be done. A
great deal has been suggested in
tho nress of tho state, and thcro Is
abundance of material fur a business
reform session toojyork upon. Follow
ing uro propositions, that the pcoplo
all understand:
Abolish the railroad commission.
Abolish the state fair appropriation.
Abolish tho district fair appropria
tions. Abolish tho state board of equaliza
tion. Abolish the olllcc of attorney gen
eral. Put all state officials on a salary.
Put all fees collected into tho
state treasury.
Fix the salaries of all clcctlvo
otllcers in state and county to take
effect Immediately on expiration of
tho terms for which thoy aro elected.
Cut oil nil appropriations afStato
UnivciDltyand normal (schools.
Pass a precinct assessor law and
county attorney law.
Make care of Insane chargeable
upon counties.
Such a call for a special scsslon,that
wouiu leave no room ror politicians to
wrangle or juggloor evade the issue
would bo n call to duty for every true
Republican In this state. Tho gover
nor in making such a call. and making
the issue so clear and sharp that no
member of the legislature could for
any partisan purposo evade tho ro
sponslblllty, would meet with a re
sponse In the hearts of tho taxpayers
that would niiiko him their idol and
he would becomo tho real leader of
the people.
Governor Lord cut looso from tho
old ring politicians on tho senatorial
question last winter, llo has paid all
ids political debts If ho over owed them
any. Ho Is In a position to take tho
side of tho pcoplo fearlessly on this
Issue of economic reform. If ho will
send out a ringing call to duty, por
traying the distress of tho people in
us trtio colors, nnu assigning tuo
proper responsibility to extravagance
in stato ami county govori
neonlo will rally to his sum
people will rally to his support with a
unanimity and a determination that
will not Ikj misunderstood.
It Is useless for tho people of Ore
gon to bo compelled to wul t until all
the rascals die or until tho people
elect a better legislature. Tho good
men in the, last legislature aro good
men still and Bomo of tho wrong
doers show signs of repentance.
Governor, place tho situation before
tho pcoplo without fear or fuvor.
Call a business session of tho 'legisla
ture. Tho tlmo is rlpo for action.
The people will endorse such a decis
ion on your part to give them all the
relief in your power, and you will
have dona your official duty.
In 48 hours tho people of Oregon
will bo at your back, and bosslsm
and boodle politics will have received
a death blow. The people want a
