A joy ride for baby I
Think you he doesn't have pride in the
appearance of the cart he "drives" about in.
Let him ride a while in one of these beauti
ful cool summer lime carts. Then try him in
the old one again and see him kick.
He knows what looks best and he wants it
as much as you.
These new folding carts at low prices are
wonderful examples of artistic designing.
You'll admire them. So will your friends when
your baby is in one.

Did you ever receive a request for payment .
of an account that you had already paid?
The best of business firms may make mis
takes, and many sometimes fail to give you
proper credit for payments.
If you pay all bills by check and keep your
canceled vouchers you have a perfect system of

Pullman, Wash., Friday, October n, 1912
One of the Important duties of the
voters at the' coming elect'oo will be
to decide upon the adoption or re
jection of tour constitutional amend
ments. 'Ph.- Spokane Chronicle sum
marizes the amendments and the ar
guments for and against them us fol
Pour constitutional amendments
will be on the official ballots in No
vember for adoption or rejection in
the state at large. Two of these af
led a single measure.
The first proposed amendment
would remove the present constitu
tional prohibition against county of
ficers holding lice- more than two
terms In succession, except ill respect
to the county treasurer. li is to be
stated on the ballot as follows:
"For lor against) the proposed
amendment to section 7, of article 1 I
of the constitution, removing the pro
hibition against county officers ex
cept county treasurer, holding office
for more than 'wo terms."
The last session of the legislature
proposed this amendment largely in
response to the urgings of various or
ganizations of county officials. It
was urged that efficiency in office
would result from returning the
same man and that the' fact that a
man had held an office for four years
(two terms) should not be' an argu
ment against his re-election, provid
ed his record was good.
The only person who thus far has
led any fight against this amend
ment has been W. If. Dunphy of
Walla Walla, recently a candidate for
the democratic gubernatorial nomi
nation. Dunphy's argument was that
a change in-administration of an of
fice would be a frequent check,
as the accounts of the retiring offi
cial would be BCrupuoUSly investigat
ed by the new man. The Walla
Walla candidate urged that such a
check would at once lessen the dan
ger of defalcations and the necessity
of examinations by the state board
Second on the list to be voted upon
In November is the recall amend
ment. It will appear on the ballots
in this form:
"For (or against the proposed
amendment to article 1 of the consti
tution by adding thereto at the end
of said article I two new sections to
be- numbered sections 111, and 34 of
said article 1. authorizing and pro
viding for the recall and discharge
of any elective public officer and
election of his successor."
The recall amendment provides
that any elective public officer ex
cept a Judge of the superior or su
preme court may be made to stand
for re-election by the filing against
him of petition and statement setting
forth that the officer complained of
has been guilty of malfeasance or
misfeasance or has violated his oath
of office, ami setting forth the al
In the case of a state officer or a
county official of a county of the

which the official originally was
elected, is necessary to bring about
the election, In the case of a state

The' amendment does not go
farther in the' line- of legislation, but
provides that law-; carrying cut these
provisions in detail shall be passed
by the legislature if the amendment
In favor of this amendment it has
been urged that it will keep public
officials at all times within reach of
the people, that an unworthy officer
may be removed from his position
without wailing for the next regular
election and that for these reasons
officials will be more likely to follow
the wishes of their constituents,
Against the hill it has been urged
that it would tend to make' officials
less self-reliant; that all would keep
their "ears to. the ground"; that it
V.ould discourage able men from

iginally introduced by its friends,

legislation. However, the men who

the ground that another amendment.

Tin- initiative and referendum
amendments are two in number,, It
being necessary to amend two sepa
rate sections. The questions will ap
pear on the ballot in the following
"For (or against the proposed
amendment of section l of article 2
of the constitution of the state of
Washington, relating to legislative
powers and providing for the initia

"For (or against) the proposed

The adoption of both these amend
ments is necessary to make- the In

The initiative- and referendum

inal and amended bills are to be sub
