Before the vote was announced an ef

Judge McKinney Talks to
.Women on the Initiative
IS NOT YET EFFECTIVE
Legislature Is Blamed for Not
Taking- Action Upon
That thu people or the -sovereign state
of Utah" have been deprived of their
rights under tho state constitution for
the past twelve years, and unlawfully
held from tho exercise of their powers,
was the startling statement mado yes
terday by Judge J. W. McKinney be
fore a meeting of tho Civic club of the
city, at which he spoke on a few of the
proposed changes to be made In the laws
of the state. Judge McKinney said In
In 3 SOD the Utah legislature passed
a resolution proposing tho submis
sion to tho Tpcople of an amendment
providing for the Initiative and refer
endum. In 1900 the amendment was
adopted and hns been ever since a
part of our state constitution.
Prior to the adoption of this amend
ment tho legislative power of tho
statu had been vested solely in the
legislature; but by the amendment
legislative power was also vested In
the- people of the state, as set forth
In the amendment.
Since the adoption of this amend
ment six legislatures have mot and
adjourned without having passed a
law whereby this amendment would
be made effective. In other words,
the legislature has withheld from
the people, of L'tah for a period of
twelve years the great constitutional
right to Initiate legislation and tho
right to have proposed legislation re
ferred to them for their approval.
inconceivable, He Says.
Tt seems Inconceivable that the
people of a great American common
wealth, In this enlightened age of the
world, would permit themselves thus
to be deprived of tholr constitutional
riuhts. It is not a question of wheth
er or not. the legislator believes in
the wisdom of the Inltlatlvo and ref
erendum. There may be honest dif
ferences of opinion as to that; but
the constitution is the supreme, law
or the state, and when it speaks, tho
legislature has no .-Ulcrnatlvo but to
carry Into effect Us mandates by
Sineo tho adoption of this amend
ment, many males of tho union have
adopted similar amendments to their
constitutions, among them South Da
kota, Oregon. Nevada. Montana, Del
aware, Oklahoma. Maine, Missouri,
North Dakota, Arkansas, Colorado,
Arizona, New Mexico and California
What Is Intended.
It. s intended by the initiative and
referendum to place in the hands of
the people a means or method by
which they mny moro effectually ex
ert their riglitful power, so thai they
may get done what ihcy want done,
and prevent the doing of that which
they do not approve.
Suppose, for Instance, that you
ladies ar desirous of securing the
enactment of a law providing for a
minimum wage scale for men and
women and I understand this Is one
of the reforms in which you are
deeply iuctrestcd. You make your ap
peal to tho next legislature, but
without success. What can you do
then except wait for another leg
islature to meet and then take your
chances with It? Nov, If legislature
after legislature should refuse to
act, how long do you suppose It would
take yon to accomplish this reform?
But snpposo you had the initiative.
This would enable you to originate
laws. This would enable you to pro
pose laws and compel their refer
ence to the people, and with this In
strument, this remedy. in your
hands, you could proceed with your
reform work dcsjnle the obduracy of
Other needed changes which were re
ferred to wcro in regard to the lack of
ectual representation through failure to
make proper enumeration and the lack
of laws for tho regulation of public ser
vants In regard to which he said:
Tho best plan would no doubt bo.
the creating of a public service com
mission, as such a commission would
exercise supervision not only over
the railroad rates, Ijut over tele
phone, light, heat, and other public
service corporations. Tho time has
como when something certainly should
bo done to relieve tho community
from the exorbitant prices charged
for coal. No doubt these high
charges are duo. In great, measure,
to unreasonably high freight rates.
WiMi vast coal fields at our very
door, with the means of transporta
tion excellent, wo are paying more
for our coal than we did thirty vcarn
ago, when few coal mines had "been j
developed and transportation was
moro difficult. A public service
commission would also bn very use
ful in remedying the telephone evil.
Tho telephone system In this city
hay become more of an irritation
than a convenience- Tt charges high
rates for poor service, nd vet it
seems that the wagcB it pays Us fe

can hardly imagine how they can cko

Tho speaker dwelt at some length on
Lhc minimum vragc laws aa they havo
been enacted in Australia and showed
how they were entirely compatible with

election of United Stales senators, and
closed by suggesting lhat Ihe next great
constitutional amendment would bo to

said Julgo IMeKlnncy. "the president

Professor and Pupils From
Although they held an elaborate cele
bration of their victory over the Colo
rado Tigers lasi Saturday, students of
tho University of Utah yesterday took
a holiday regardless of the strenuous pro
tests of -the faculty. It seems thai this
action av.ts entirely unpremeditated on
the part of the students and until yes
terday morning no mention of the holiday
had been made.
JDnglneerlng students of the school, bet
ter known on the campus as the "Ca

S;30 classes several embryo engineers as
sembled In front of the physical building
; and evolved the idea. When It was
proposed there was no opposition and
soon the "Caseys" were scouting tho en
tire school for students to support the
celebration. Nearly all approached were
eager to Join In and soon a mighty crowd
assembled on the campus. Some ono
"Do wc want a holiday?"
"Wo do," was tho unanimous answer.
Rnd from then on the authority of tho
faculty was thrown to the winds.
Acting President Joseph P. Merrill ap
peared on the scene and pleaded with the
students, but he met "with little success.
Threats to call the police failed lo dis
courage them. The crowd then moved
to the entrance to the campus, where
everybody who approached was com
manded lo Join the merrymakers under
pain of losing his hair,
Hamilton Gardener, president of the
student body, arrived and the students
moved back to the campus and held a
rally. By this limn the number had
reached 500 with as many girls as boys in
the throng. President Gardner was lifted
upon the big drinking fountain and asked
to sp.-ak. Me said that Jf the students
wero bent, on a holiday he was with them,
provided they took the celebration from
Accordingly the throng started for the
city. When they arrived at Thirteenth
East street, they changed their minds
and decided to go to the "U" on the hill.
Many girls then left and went to their
sorority houses. Tho men gathered wood
on their way to the "U," where Ihcv built,
a huge bonfire and danced the Virginia
reel, lold stories and listened lo speeches.

The students decided lo hold a ball and

raised to hire an orchestra and purchase

in particular took the lead, the faculty

This, ol' course, put an end to the

Not all the students struck and regu
