He had limited advantages for educa

mechanical ingenuity. Before he was

That C'ons.itution Is Act of
Washington. Nov. 4. The critical
manner in which the supreme court of
the United States yesterday afternoon
listened to arguments that the initia
tive and referendum method of legisla
tion in this country was uuconstitu
'ional brought encouragement to the
friends of the system. Oral arguments
on both sides of the Question were
completed before the court adjourned
for tb day.
E. S. Pillsbury of San Francisco and
R. H. Duniway of Portland, 6re., were
heard in opposition to the method in
two Oregon cases. When Mr. Pills
bury n marked that there could not,
wfth due reeard for the federal consti

state, namely, the legislature and the
people. Justice Lurton interrupted
SHOWS lEOri.E' POWER.
"What is a state constitution but an
organic act of legislation by the peo
ple?"' inquired the justice.
"That Is expressly what I under
stand it to be," responded Mr. rills
bury. "Then there is legislative power in
"To make a constitution; yes."
Mr. Pillsbury suggested the people
might put into their constitution any
thing: not in conflict with the restric
tions of the federal constitution.
"What are the restrictions which
you claim are violated in this particu
lar case?" inquired Chief Justice
"The provisions for a legislature.
The chief justice asked him to
'T cannot read it; it is Implied in a
dozen places," said the attorney.
"And. also, the constitution has been
construed by this court to imply that

The chief justice asked for the cases
in which the point had been in issue,
but the attorney did not give them.

Attorney General Crawford of Ore
gon argued that the question whether

the T inted States in the federal con
stitution of a "republican form of gov

question tor congress to decide and not
a judicial one for the courts to pass
upon. He inquired how the court
would enforce its decision If congreeB
and Oregon were opposed to It.
"(iHntMl" TO STATES.
George Fred Williams of Boston ar
gued that only a party to the "guaran
ty." the states, could ask the United
States to make good Its promise that
every state should have a republican
form of government, A corporatlon.be
taid, could not do so because the guar
anty was to the states.
Chief Justice White suggested that
the word "form" in the constitution
lent support to Mr. Williams' Interpre
tation of the word "guaranty."
Jackson H. Ralston of this city con
tended that the opponents of the meth
od were wrong in arguing that tho
word "republicaJi" was used in the
constitution as a synonym for "repre
sentative" He argued It was used In
contradistinction with "monarchial."
Justice Holmes suggested this interpre
tation would be in conformity with a
rule of logic.
