(Continued from flrat page.)
tition. If the legislature fails to pass
the act aspreseuted, an additional
three per cent of the voters may by
petition have this act as presented, or
as amended by the legislature, pre
sented at the next special or general
If the legislature should pass the
act in an amended form, it shall be
subject to the referendum. Should
the legislature pass the bill as amend
ed, and the people also pass a version
of the law, the law passed by the
people shall become the law of the
state to the exclusion of the legisla
Acts adopted by referendum, or ap
proved by referendum, shall not be
subject to veto by the governor nor
to appeal or amendment except by
two thirds vote of all the members of
each branch of the legislature.
It will require ten per cent of the
voters to present a constitutional
amendment. It does not go to the
legislature, but directly before the
people* Sixty per cent of the electors
votings thereon are required to adopt
it. In the case of laws, only a ma
jority is required.
All measures except laws providing
for tax levies and appropriations for
current expenses are subejet to refer
endum on petition of six per cent of
the voters. Emergency measures, de
clared so in a preamble approved by
three-fourths of the members of each
house, may go into effect at once, but
they would be repealed by referen
dum and an adverse vote by the peo
ple. Other legislative measures are
not permitted to go into effect until
ninety days after the adjournment of
Where a referendum is called for
and the measure approved, it goes
into effect thirty days after approval.
Percentages are based on the vote for
Women Voice Protest.
Members of the legislature are be
ing bombarded by letters from women
protesting against woman suffrage,
and arguing the case. In some cases
identical letters are signed by dif
ferent women and mailed separately.
In other cases women join in signing
the same letter.
The burden of the argument is
that the women do not want the bal
lot and that it would be placing dut
ies and burdens upon them.
The house yesterday, by unanim
ous vote, acceded to the request of
the senate that the Moonan resolu
tion, asking for a joint committee to
work out a plan of reorganization of
state departments, be recalled from
committee and returned.
