BOYNTON URGES
AMENDMENT OF
ELECTION LAWS
Senator Reports for Committee
on Performance of Plat
form Promises
Direct Primary League's Orig-
inal Proposals and Other
Changes Favored
GEORGE A. VAN SMITH
Amendments of the direct primary;
election law to make it conform to
the bill originally introduced by the
direct primary league • were proposed
to. the legislative conference yester
day by Senator Boynton of Orovllle,
who will be president pro tern of the
new senate.
Senator Boynton, in behalf of his
fpecial commlttpp, returned a report
• covering the platform promises touch
ing direct primary legislation, the Aus
tralian ballot, the short ballot, non
1 partisan judiciaxy and the regulation
.' of lobbyists. On the latter subject Sen
ator Boynton submitted a digest of the
; Missouri law. but said that the last
' legislature did not need any such law
and that ht believed the next could
worry along without one.
The woman's suffrage question "was
: disposed of briefly by Senator C. W.
Bell of Pasadena, who presented the
draft of- a, proposed constitutional
amendment, the particular feature of
which was the elimination of the word
"male" from the constitutional quali
fication for the exercise of the duty of
suffrage.
BIIIKCT PIU3IARY PROPOSALS
The exceptionally well considered re
port on election laws returned by Sen
ator A. E. Boynton for his committee
wa sfull of cold comfort for those al
leged direct primary champions who
advocated the defeat of the direct pri
mary bill two years ago unless it was
made a nonpartisan measure. That
report not only recommended that the
legislature should return to the pro
visions of the original bill touching the
nomination of United States senators
and the formation of platforms, but it
I declared Tor a radical stiffening of the
partisan- provisions of the measure if
such {stiffening could be effected under
I the constitution.
The express "simplification" amend T
ments recommended by the committee
consisted chiefly of suggestions for a
•reduced percentage of signatures for
candidates' petitions, and placing limits
upon the time in which petitions might
be <-ircu!ated and consequently upon
the duration of the campaign. *
The short ballot report was comprised
i in* the recommendation that the state
printer, clerk of the supreme court and
attorney general be . made appointive
officers, and the confession that the
committee, could not agree upon any
others to be placed in the appointive
_liFt. Constitutional amendments will
necessary to take the clerk of the su
preme court and the surveyor general
out of the elective class.
» Other recommendations submitted by
vßoynton provided for the removal of
ihf party circle from the general elec
tion ballot, the pure Australian ballot,
\u25a0-th^ rotation of candidates* names on
the ballot, life tenure for judges, sub
ject to recall, and three alternatives
for securing tlie promised nonpartisan
judiciary. One of these was the bar
association advisory vote, which the
commission did not favor. Another
provided for a separate nonpartisan
judiciary ballot and the third for non
partisan judiciary section of -the pri-
Imary ballot as employed in 'Washing
ton. ngs|
The set program of the conference
s was finished shortly before 6 o'clock
! last night. It was announced by recog
nized leaders of both houses that the
organization caucuses* would be held
In Sacramento Monday and it was sug
gested that a senatorial caucus might
be called for Monday.
The extremely close fight for chief
! Vlerk of the house between Mallory and
I Walker had reached the stage last
night of" an understanding that if
Walker won Mallory would be his as
sistant and vice versa.
The supporters of Ed Whyte of Sac-
I ramento declared that he had taken the
measure of Assembly Sergeant at Arms
"Jack"' Stafford, but Stafford declared
that lie had votes enough to nominate
him in the caucus and veteran legisla
tors were of the samem opinion.
The Los Angeles contingent was
vociferously confident that George Co
narts of Los Angeles would be elected
• sergeant at arms of the senate, and the
San Francisco and Alameda county
legislators were equally confident if
r-s« demonstrative in their assertions
of the success of Joseph L. Coughlin of
Oakland, who was started the race
b»"y. Senator Elect Tyrrell.
I-ISSXEH SPEAKS FOR WORKS
After a meeting of the Los Angeles
delegation, held at the Palace last
night, Meyer Lissner issued an Informal
I statement to the press in which de
clared his confidence in the election of
John D. Works to the - United States
senate '..with a showing of 75 votes on
the first joint ballot and by a unani
mous vote on the second.
I.issner declined to go Into details
explanatory of his astonishing state
ment, which he declared was deemed
by him to be an accurate forecast made
on what "we know, of the situation.?
Heinsisted that the Los Angeles wai
a unit for Works, but refused to an-
Fwer questions touching the attitude
of individuals, saying, "We are not
talking about individuals." He also
said that the question of caucus had
not been discussed.
Questions directed at other members
of the delegation were met with the
direct information or equally effective
intimation that only Llssner was au
thorized to speak and his refusal to go
Into details suggested that his state
ment was made for the purpose of
"throwing a scare."

That the executive committee

for the United States senate ,iv as
emphatically denied last night by
officers and members of \ that

They also denied thai there

Los A ngcles partisans of
Judge Works not only used the
name of the state central com-
mittee yesterday, ~ but the name
of Governor elect Hiram W .
Johnson in an attempt to siting
legislators from Spalding* to
Works. The}) used the name. of
V the governor elect coupled v>ith
threats concerning the;disposalof

BILLS FOR DIRECT
LEGISLATION READ
Senator Gates Explains Meas«
ures for initiative/ Refer
endum and Recall
Two bills Involving amendment -to
the state constitution for the perfec
tion of direct legislation were read
yesterday afternoon for the considera
tion of the state central committee
by Senator Lee C. Gates of Lbs An
geles. The first dealt with the initia
tive- and referendum, the second "with
the. recall. Both bills were drawn up
in detail, but were presented to the
conference in brief form. '
With the Initiative and referendum
it was explained that the . committee
oh direct legislation had worked out
provisions for giving the people of
the state the power of legislation with
out opening the door to the enfran
chisement of special prlvileges;-
With the recall bill the question
arose as to the exemption of the ju
diciary. It was stated by Senator
Gates that the committee had not been
In accord on that point, ; but .that a
provision had been made, in the bill
for such exemption. He expressed him
self as against it. ' '
Discussion the : narose over the use
of the . recall should three parties in
the state attain an approximate"equal
ity of strength, two parties uniting for
the recall of the incumbent of the
third. The idea was dismissed as im
probable. -.-•..-'"-\u25a0

Site for Institution for
First Offenders
An appropriation of $1,000,000 and the
selection of a proper site of not" less
than 600 acres for the establishment
of a reformatory for first ', offenders
'were among the recommendations made
yesterday by Judge Curtis D. Wilbur of
Los Angeles : before the state" central
committee In behalf of the committee
considering; that' subject.
Embodied in the remainder; of the
rough draft •of the bill ; presented were
provisions for the schooling, ot petty
criminals in various trades. : , In con
nection with ,this it, was .announced
that the committee had so^arrahged
the bill as -to; avoid -difficulties,: with
organized s labor. Further, Jt .was sug
gested that the management of^the in
stitution be: placed In therhands of; the'
statft* prison directors," which • body : it
was "deemed advisable 'to ,reduc» to
three members, with salary,
by a constitutional' amendment.
Age ' limits of offenders to be con
fined to the Institution were. set at 16
and 20 years.
