Thinks Two Amendments to

Be of General Benefit
H international News Service
WASHINGTON. Dee. -I. Refer
endum throughout the nation
ami the recall of decisions of the !
supreme court of the United
stales will by brought about If
iwo constitutional amendments introduc-:
ed by Senator lirlstow of Kansas should
ho adopted by congress and be ratified by
tl ? states. This is the most drastic
progressive legislation yet Introduced.
I a refractory concress should fail I
to enact any measure the president has
rpr-omm ended in proper form within sl:
ears from the date of the recommen
dation, this measure under the proposed
law must be submitted lo the electors
at the regular congressional election fol
'ov ing the expiration of tlio six-year pe
iiod, and If approved by the electors, tho
measure becomes a hiW despite the re
fusal of congress lo enact It.
The proposition involving- the judicial
question provides that if tho supreme
court shall decide that a law enacled by
congress Is in violation of the provisions
of the constitution of the United States,
congress at a regular session held after
r.uch decision may submit the act to the
voters at a regular congressional elec
tion and If a majority of the eleetoi-s
voting on the mcesuro approve it. it:
nursi' become Inw.
In order, however, to make the verdict
of the people an absolute expression of
the majority of the voters, it is provided
in both eases that the determining' ma
jority must include a majority of the
congressional districts and likewise a
majority of the slates.
These propositions will cause more dis
cussion when pressed than any proposed
amendments ever offered in congress. The j
llrst one, Mr. Bristow explained today,
enables a president to appeal to the
country from a dilatory or adverse con
gress upon questions of vital concern.
This amendment, he contends, pro
vides a means by which the people may
with reasonablo promptness decide con
troversies, and will nol, In his judgment,
rcriuiro the overturning of our entire
civil administration to secure the enact
ment of a desirable law which either the
president has refused lo accept or the
congress declined to enact.
Calling attention to the situation under
existing constitutional limitations, where
the supreme court lias the power to de
clare that legislation Is not in harmony
with the constitution, Mr. Uristow asserts
that his second amendment merely glvjs
lo the people an opportunity to slate,
whether or not they desire lo have such
a law stand as the last expression of
their will, regardless of what, tile supremo
court may think about it.
The law Is the people's law, says Mr.
Brlstow, and the courts simply interpret
the law and say "what they think it
