The Referendum League of Mis
souri Want People's Laws.
Tho object of the Initiative and
reieremuim aeconung 10 me
'ibovo named lotigue is to educate
tho people and give them
chance to vote intelligently at
tho general election in Novem
ber, 190Q,when the constitutional
amendment is lobe submitted.
It is proposed as follows:
"If the Initiative weroa part
of our constitution, then o per
cent of the qualified voters of the
state, (which in a state like Mis
souri would amount to about G0,-
000), could sign a petition stating
that they desired a certain law
enacted, and under the provi
sions of tho Initiative, if the leg
islature did not pass such a law,
it would have to be submitted to
the whole people of the state and
at the next ceneral election, it
would be printed on nil ballots
of every party and ail the voters
of the state, irrespective of party,
could vote yes or no on the ques
tion, and, if approved by a major
ity, it would become a law at
once by this action of tho people,
and without the necessity of re
ceiving the consent ol tne legis
lature or tho governor. Be it
enacted by the People of the
State of Missouri,' instead of, as
at present. 'Be it enacted by the
Legislative Assembly of Missou
"With the Referendum in force
if the legislature passed a law
that was obnoxious to the people
or that the people considered un
just or oppressive, or if the legis
lature gavo away lor little or
nothing a valuable franchise that
the people did not want given
away, then 5 per cent of the v
ers of the stato could, within 90
days after adjournment of the
legislature, sitrn a petition de
manding that the law be refer
red to the vote of the whole peo
ple of the state and under the
provisions, it could be printed on
all ballots of every party at the
next general election. If reject
ed by a majority of the voters, it
would then become null and void
and be marked, 'Vetoed by the
people of Missouri.' If, how
ever, it was approved by a ma
jority, then, and not before,
would it become a law and it
would read, 'Be it enacted by the
People of tho State of Missouri."

Tho attitude of
towark tho Knox
boom Is being
thought that Senator
sort of a man that
opposition can form around to
tho Taft boom. Of course, it
must ie remembered, that the
President has never come out
openly in advocacy of the Tail
candidacy. But :t is generally
accepted among politicians that
Taft is ths President s choice,
and that opposition to him is op
position to the Iiooseveltian
scheme of. things. Therefore,
there is a feeling among many of
the prominent men of thcKeiru"-
lican party, men who can and
will do things during the cam
paign, that they must have a rea
sonably decent alternative candi
date with whom to beat Taft for
tho nomination, roraker and
men of that silk are good Kepub
licans enough, and will work for
the party when it comes to the
final fight. But they are reac
tionaries, and while their zeal to
beat tho President is ardent,
they cannot be chosen to lead the
opposition fight. The people are
suspicious and will have none
of them. It is not so with Knox. I
He has proved a good lawyer and
a good politician in the past. He
is not a reactionary like Foraker,
and he has done something to
ward trust busting in the govern
ment's tight on the Northern Se
curities Company. But he is re
garded by the big business in
terests as a good deal "safer"
man than Secretary Taft, that
meaning probably that he will be
more amendable to influence. So
if the Pennsylvania delegation
is strongly for Knox, it means
that he will have a big state be
hind him and he would seem to
be the logical candidate for that
wing-of the party that wants a
"safe and sane mm" but does
not dare to pick a man who has
openly broken with the President
and who is openly hostile to his
policies. The Knox movement
is interesting and will bear
The War Department has just
