SENATOR OWEN OF OKLAHOMA
ADDRESSES SENATE ON THE
Owen Says the Etcct'on of United
States Senators by Direct Vote of
the People Would Prevent Improp
er Use of Money In Campaigns.
Washington. May :!. "It will be
lienor for thin country," said Scnntor
Owon of Oklahoma today, "when
senators and tnrarbera of congress and
stnto legislators and municipal leu
Islators nto ohown hy the direct
oi(i of the people anil when the
lople hare the right of recall y
the nomination of a sucrcaaor to
their public servant. The people
wl'l never ahum their power." The
senator was speaking 1" the Semite
in favtr of a resolution Intrwlucctl
by hiui. In accordince with the
wishes of the legislature of the
xtato of Oklahoma, providing for
the submission of a constitutional
amendment for the election of sen
ators by" direct vte of the people.
Sin li an amendment, he said,
would prevent the corruption of leg
Islituros, would pevri,t the Improper

You want to got wlso to tho fact
that we keep tho nicest lino of

Roverrment and tend to Itws 4 th
ci nflcletue of the people in the son
ate, "wliL-h has been to iotni extent
Impaired In riven t years." It would
also prevont deadlocks, he contlmn d.
due to p-lHIcal contest In which
various state from time to time had
'.jen left unrepresented.
"I cannot believe," aald Senator
Owen, "that the senate In eonselott
of the widespread public demand fnr
the election of sponsors by direct
vote of the pe-'.ple. I therefore sub
mit evidence of action taken by th
various states, ahowlnc that thirty
six of them have expressed them
selves. In one forni or snothsr, fa
ornlly to the election of senators
by direct vote of tho people.
"1 believe." he declared, "that the
will of the jieonle Is far more neatly
right In the main than the will of
any Individual statesman who Is apt
to be horored by them wtth a seat
In the senate; that the whole people
are more apt to bo safe nnd sane,
more apt to be sound and honest
than, a alntrle Individual. At all
i events I feel not only willing but
J I really desire to make effective the
will of the people of my state."
J "Democratic and republican state
i alike west of the Hudson river have
acted favorably In this matter almost
, without exception. Only eight or
, rlne states have failed to act, and
i I do not doubt that if the voice' of
i the people of these states of N'ew
J Kngland, of N'ew .York. Maryland
j and Delaware could find convenient
j expression free from machine poll
J tics, every one of thorn would favor
( tho election of senators by direct
j vnte and would favor the right o'
, the people to Instruct their rcpu
! sentatlves in congress and the sen
i "Xot only, the states have :ieti,;
almost unanimously In favor of this
! ilaht of the people, but all tli
i e.it parties of tho country, except
th"- ropubllcan party, have done so.
and tli.it party wjuld have declared
for It except for the overwhelming
influence and domination of machine
politics In lis mumiKcmcnt and the
prevalence of so-called boss influ
ence." Senator Owen maintained that the
great oll from which the Ameri
can peoplo hae suffered In recent
years has been the secret but well
known alliance between commercial
Interests and machine pslltics. by
which commercial Interests have en
deavored and often succeeded in ob'
talnlnt; legislation giving them spe
cial advantages In nation, states and
municipalities, mid obtained admluls-
i trative and Judicial Immunity so that
the laws have not been propel ly en-
I forced against them.
"I have no desire," he continual!,
"to beelc partisan advantage by
pointing cut the weaknesses of gov
ernment under present methods. It
i will rctpilro the most vigorous efforts
1 of the honest uiou of both parties
I to restore the government to a coii'
i dltlon of Integrity, where high pur
poses, honor and the common good
exclusively shall 0110."
