Helena, March ]:3.--The fixing of
Friday, March 25, as the dlate of the
meeting of Montana citizens to form
a people's non-partisan direct legis
lation league was the result of a con
currence of opinion upon the part of
a large number of representatives of
all political parties in the state that
the gathering should be held early, as
the work of preparing the laws that
are likely to be initiated will take
considerable time, and that these
should be prepared and ready for gen
eral distribution among the voters not
later than the early months of next
The decision to hold the meeting
grows out of a widespread conviction
that the experience of recent years
has clearly demonstrated that law
making by legislative bodies has been
unresponsivA to the needs and wishes
of the people in so very large a de
gree as to make it absolutely essen
tial that the people themselves shall
assert their democratic powers to leg
islate in the common interest under
authority of the initiative and refer
endum amendments to the state con
This feeling was accentuated by the
failure of the last legislature to carry
out in reasonable fullness the reforms
promised to the people in the various
party platforms put forth last year.
As a result it was decided by a large
number of members of the legislature
and by a great many other citizens
that there is left to the people of Mon
tana no other course than direct leg
islation if lawmaking is to reflect the
will of the people. It was an equally
general opinion that the necessity for
prompt action is imperative if the new
laws required by new conditions shall
be had, to the end that the develop
ment of the natural resources of the
state shall go on evenly and under
proper regulations; that the burdens
of public taxation, now notoriously un
fairly distributed, shall he borne equit
ably by all who should contribute;
that the education of the youth of the
state shall not be impeded harmfully
by lack of necessary funds; and that
L state reputation for clean, honest
and efficient government shall be es
tablished, so that Montana may take
and keep its rightful place among the
progressive states of the west and
It will lbe the purpose of the con
ference on the 28th to discuss and de
cide upon measures in the public in
terest to be initiated, and to pro
I\' ie therefor by means of an organ
ize(d people, a non-partisan direct leg
islation league.
The in\vitation is general. No cre
dentials will be required other than
Ssona fide sympathy with the purposes
Sof the gathering, and a willingness to
take a reasonable part in the work to
be undertaken.
At the request of those interested,
Messrs. A. J. Ilorsky, IF. J. Edwards,
John Edgerton, George O. Freeman,
all of Helena, and Sam W. "Teagarden
of Forest Grove, consented to act
as a temporary commnittee in charge
of the preliminaries for the meeting.

of the five will be given prompt at

W~ashington, 1larch 13.--President
Wilson's advisers have hit upon solu
tions of two of the political problems
confronting the administration which
promised to be troublesAilne--what
kind of democrats shall get plums
from the, political tree, and how thou
sands of itldemocratsl throllughout the
country can be given a fighting chance'

master (lenrerl Burlelson is expicted
to ipresent for tie presidenillt's consid
eration a plan w\hich will open to
democrats the 35,000 third andti fourth
class lpostlnastershipls placed iunder i.he
civil service recently by Mr. Taft.
Mr. Burleson said tonight that lie
had not decided whether to ask the
president for ai revocation of this or
der or nlot. If ihe decides against
asking for r'vc atli.n, hli \will siiggest
that plistmasters who lbin liefited by the
Taft order lei reqititired to puss it merit
test, 'which woul lii' ieip n also to
others. If the president tooik the first
course, thousands of )Ostiiasler
ships Would bIe available at oince and
if lie chose the other, d(Iemocrats who
entered the miiirit comptiltionll would
have as go)od a chanllce as reipublican
Taft Order Criticized.
Ever since Ali. Taft issued his fa
mnous order, Which wxith a similar one
by Roosevelt lut ,eveiry third andt
fourth-class postlInsti r in the cioun
try in the classified service, it has
been subjected tho vigorous criticisms
by democrats who charged that its
purpose was to keep in office through
Mr. Wilson's term thousands of re
publicans who were not in sympathy
with the administration and who were
given such protection merely to keep
the republican political machine in
working order.
Mr. Burleson and Chairman Mc
Combs of the democratic national
committee have settled on a plan for
patronage distribution which also will
be submitted shortly to the president.
If it is followed, the question of
whetiher a candidate for office Is
backed by "organization men" or
"anti-organization men" will not fig
ure when he is weighed for a place.
The president will lie advised to go
upon the principle: that any man who
subscribes to the democratic platform
and shows his belief in democratic
principles, is politically fit for office.
Personal fitness, of oourse, will be
considered first, but the question of
state factions or pre-convention alli
ances will have little weight. This
disposition has been shown in the
first batch of presidential appoint
ments. Some of the most prominent
men whom the. president thus far
named, opposed his nomirption In
