April 0, 1890,
"There is an amendment, hdVover,
proposed by tho last legislature that
will have to bo voted on at tho next
general election which, if adoptod,
will romovo tho existing obstructions,
if any, of tho legislature to pass a law
creating a commission to rogulato the
rates of traffio upon tho, railways of
this stato. If that amendmont is
adopted all admit that it is equivalent
to a oommand of the people that a
railway commission shall bo created,
Tho governor or legislator who takes
tho oath to support tho constitution
will bo bound to respect all tho ob
ligations of a oonsoiontious official and
obey that mandate Whothor, there
fore, ho is now in favor of a commission
or not, if he is olocted under a con
stitution that imperatively requires
the creation of one, as ours would on
the adoption of that amendmont,
which, under tho peculiar circum
stances of its submission, presents tho
issuo so sharply and pointedly he
could not in self respect and only in
detianco of tho will of tho pcop'.o and
the oath ho takes opposo ono. His
convictions would have to bo sur
rendered to tho obligations imposed
upon him by tho constitution.
So, my fellow-oitizens, tho question
of tho creation of a commission, after
all, depends upon the adoption of that
