"Lucke still has a few pairs of sam
pile sho s to sell."
In order that the state governiment
may be brought nearer to the people,
the debmoCrats advocate the election
of all importait state officers by popu
lar vote, thus reducing as much as
possible the so-called patronage of the
governor and increasing the power of
the people. Under the Direct Pri
mary Nomination law pledged by the
democrats, there is no -reason to fear
that state offices willl be filled by un
worthy men. To put an end to cor
rupt methods at party primaries and
political conventions the democratic
party comes before the voters with a
definite remedy and demands:
"A Direct Primary Nomination
law, conducted under the Australian
ballot system, covering all state, coun
ty and municipal elective otfices, and
providing for the printing of the
names of all candidates upon one bal
lot under the proper titles."
There is a distinct pledge for a clean
ballot.; a pledge for the law that will
put nominations for the people's otfi
ces into the hands of the people; a
recognition and declaration that the
rights of the people are safe wit h the
people, and that in. the nomination of
candidates for public offices the vest
ed interests should have neither part
nor lot. Not only that, but the dem
ocratic pledge when enacted will for
ever put. an end to "contesting dele
The democrats have this year elim
inated from their platform all unim
portant matter, pledged themselves
to a platform that means the aboli
tion of corporations meddling in poli
tics. For that condition the demo
crats offer a sure remedy for corrupt
legislation in Montana. The demo
crats of this state are pledged to and
demand: An initiative and referen
dum amendment identical in all ma
terial provisions with the amendment
adopted by the voters of Oregon and
sustained by the supreme court of
This places in the hands of the vot
ers the power to veto at the ballot
box vicious laws that may be passed
by foolish or corrupt legislators, and
to adopt by popular vote at the bal
lot box laws necessary to the state
and its people.
Pretending to imitate the demo
cratic program the republicans are
trying to deceive the people by en
dorsing "initiative and referendum
laws" well knowing that the consti
tution must be amended by popular
vote before we can have initiative
and referendum in this state, and
that the provisions of the constitu
tion compel the supreme court to de
clare unconstitutional any laws that,
attempt to do what can be done only
by a constitutional amendment.
Oppressed by a most unjust burden
of high railroad and express rates, and
arbitrary rules of the railroad corpor
ations, the people of Montana demand
a Railroad Commission to regulate
the rates and methods of transporta
tion companies within the state. lines.
Gov. Toole was the first man to make
public suggestion of a railroad com
mission, in a campaign document.
Crushed by high rates and annoying
regulations the stockmen of the state
last winter- endorsed Governor Toole's
suggestion of a railroad commission,
to be elected by the people. The pas
sage of a direct primary nomination
law will insture the nomination Hof
men who are trusted by the people.
The democratic party also demanids
an amendment to the constitution,
empowering the state board of equal
izatlorn to equalize property assess
ments in the state. That is the pow
er the voters thought they were giv
ing to the state board of equalization
when they adopted the constitutibon,
