ZT' Wouldn't That Jar Vnu?*— ■■
An Associated Press dispatch £from
San Francisco dated February Oth says
City Attorney Mathews of Los Angeles
appeared yesterday before the supreme
court en bane to argue the case of ex*
parte Andrew Ffahler, who was upon
a writ of habeas corpUß, having been
arrested for violating the slaughter
house ordinance passed as a result of
the initiative and referendum by which
the charter permits citizens to start a
movement leading to legislation.
The court refused to entertain oral
arguments but will take the matter up
on briefs within twenty days.
The contention made is that the con*
stitutions of the United States and Cal
ifornia were violated by delegating to
the people the law making power which
belongs to the legislature.
Now what do you think of that? Del
egating to the people the law-making
power which belongs to the legislature.
Poor poor people, if they are to have
any power it must be delegated to them.
But who has this power and who does
the delegating is not so plain.
"The law-making power which be
longs to the legislature" would seem to
imply that the legislature might have
delegated this power to the people, but
if so where did the legislature acquire
the "divine* right" to make laws over
the people? Ah, you say the constitu
tion reposes that power in the legisla
ture. But again what is the constitu
tion but law and who made it to
authorized its making? It was the peo
ple v was it not? Well, if the people
made the constitution and that consti
tution expressed the method by which
laws were to be made, is it not evident
that the law-making power primarily
emulates from the people? That they
delegated this law-making power which
they had to a legislature I And now the
legislature has been abusing the power
delegated to it and the poople after long
suffering begin to realize that they must
recall this delegated power of making
laws to themselves. And corporations
which have so long used the law-mak
ing body to pass laws in their interests

scent a danger and appeal to the courts
to stop this terrible corporation demor*
aliziriß scheme. Then to make things
sound right for their side and to pull
the wool over the people's eyes some
more, they tell about "delegating" pow
er to the people.
/ Is there any further evidence needed
to prove the truth of the Socialist con
tention that the capitalists have bo long
used the powers ot government in their
own interest and have so long looked
after the personnel of the ofllcers as to
justify the claim the government is but

Can't you see that the first step need
ed is to reclaim to yourselvss the gov-
And how are you going to do this?
Well, you maybe sure you will not do
it by electing ,tnen to office who are so
steeped in party prejudice and are so
grossly ignorant of the evolution of so
ciety and the forms of government as to
do what the party boss tells them and
who believes that the. law-making pow
er can be delegated to the people in a
country where it is recognized that the
supreme law of the land is the will of
You will do*it by voting for the only
party that stands for the working class,
■which class is the only class in society
that cannot be eliminated.
The Socialist Party is that party.
You had better secure their platform,
find out what they advocate and see if
it does not harmonize with your -inter
ests. But you will probably prefer to
vote the same old ticket and enjoy the
reign of crime and graft awhile longer.
