That one feat ure of the 1)ii!, it is admitted, . ,]1 work wonders toward restricting the employment of this now legislative deviee, but the "joker" lies in the fact that the farmers of the tsato will, if the bill is passed as presented, be disenfranchised for one year insofar as signing referendum petitions is concerned. This clause is aimed directlyat the State Grange and other farmer organizations which have taken a more or less active part In the presentation of laws to the elec torate for consideration. The Republican majority some time ago let it be understood the wings of B Kegley and his hench men would be clipped by the present session. This bill does the clipping in a most drastic fashion, allowing the Kegley people 12 months in which to think it over before they will be in a position to get active again. In the meantime any bills or measures which the Grange would be opposed to will become laws be cause the referendum is tied up in a legal knot. The University of Washington's chances for new buildings apparently hinge upon the willingness of the legislature to make a loan from the general fund to provide for the struc tures, to be repaid through a fund created by the payment of a tuition fee by students and by the sale of university lands, or some such means. An alternative proposition Is the bonding of some of the university holdings. A bill that Is of local interest is the one presented this wek that will prevent fishing in Olympia bay with any other appliance than a hook and line, designed to prevent some eva sions of the present law it is alleged some local fishermen have ben prac tising.

"Quality delivered shall be reck oned by the accepted standard. "Quantity will be based on actual amount delivered at the cannery." Those interested in the success of the prise competition, the purpose of which is solely to stimulate better quality and larger quantity of farm products in this county, earnestly hope that it will appeal favorably to the farmers so that the object of the competition may be attained and the best man really win. All prizes are in addition to the regular prices paid for the products, so that every con • testant will receive the prevailing market price for his products and may, with proper effort, win one of the three prizes.

REPUBLICANS PASS TWO VETOED BILLS (Continued from page 1., zation measure was for the same rea son. His message on the land board bill, addressed to the house, was: "1 herewith return House Bill No 54 without my approval. This is "An Act 'Relating to the board of state land commissioners, its compo sition, powers and duties, amending section 6605 of Remington Ballin ger's Annotated Codes and Statutes of Washington, and declaring an emergency.' "The bill provides that the mem bership of the board of state land commissioners shall consist of tlit: commissioner of public lands, the secretary of state and the state treas urer. Under the present law the board of state land commissioners consists of the commissioner of pub lic, lands the state firji warden and forester, and the three members of the state tax commission. "in considering this bill it is nec essary to also consider in connection with it house bills Nos. 53 and 55, for the reason that the bill provides for a change in the board of state land commissioners which would be necessary should the law creating the state tax commission be repealed. In this particular group of bills. House Bill No. 53 is the one provid ing for the abolition of the state tax commission. This bill, while passed by the house of representatives, has not, up to the present time, been act ed upon by the state senate. I have therefore before me only house bills Nos. 54 and 55. "In my message to your honorable body I recommended the abolition of the state tax commission and the placing of the duties of the tax com mission in the hands of one tax com missioner. Certain Changes Necessary. "In connection with that recom mendation I stated that certain changes would have to be made in the membership of the board of state | land commissioners and of the state ; board of equalization, should my rec ' ommendation be adopted, for the rea- Json that the three members of the : state tax commission were also mem ! bers of the state board of land com ' missioners and the state board of ' equalization. I "If a bill is not passed abolishing the state tax commission there can Ibe no real need shown for a change jin the membership of the board of state land commissioners or of the state board of equalization. The change In the commission is not called for as a result of inefficiency 'on the part of the membership of these two commissions, in fact, the feeling seems to be quite general that each of the commissions has been efficient In the performance of Its duties. j "Had House Bill No. 53, abolish ing the state tax commission, or House Bill No. 38, creating the office of state tax commissioner and abol / ishing the -state tax commission, been , passed, so that either of these bills might have been considered in con nection with house bills Nos. 54 and 65, there would have appeared some reason for legislative action on the two bills before me. ' "I also desire to make.special men tion of the emergency clause provi sion attached to House Bill No. 54, Under the constitution of the state, provision is made that all laws shall be in effect 90 days after the close of the legislative session, 'except such laws as may be necessary for the im mediate preservation of the public peace, health or safety, support of the state government and its existing public institutions.' Not True Emergency. "I have carefully scrutinized this bill and fall to find In Its provisions | any language that would indicate a situation requiring It to become a law Immediately. The provision of the state constitution, as above quoted, without doubt is intended to allow the legislature, in cases of Im mediate necessity, to have the power of placing a law in effect immediate ly, whenever such a law comes under this constitutional provision. "As I view it, It cannot be said that the enactment Into law of House Bill No. 54 is necessary Immediately, 'for the preservation of the public peace, health or safety, support of the state government and its existing institu tions.' I "While this particular bill might not be considered of sufficient impor tance to cause the voters of the state (to call for it to be considered by their votes at the next general election, under the provisions of the referen dum, yet, it is true that if a rule be adopted by the legislature of placing the emergency clause on acts not properly coming under the provisions of the constitution, this clause may be applied to acts on which the voters do desire to have the right of refer endum.

"While I do not desire to enter into a legal argument regarding this, I have made an investigation and find there are authorities holding that the courts have the power to review. »"In the case of Mugler vs. Kansas, 123 U. S. 623, in 1887, the supreme court of the United States in an opin ion delivered by Justice Harlan used the following language: " 'The courts are not bound by mere forms, nor are they to be misled by mere pretenses. They are at lib erty—indeed, are under a solemn duty—to look at the substance of things, whenever they enter upon the inquiry whether the legislature has transcended the limits of its author ity. If, therefore, a statute purport ing to have been enacted to protect the public health, the public morals,or the public safety, has no real or sub- Making Good Contacts t As we go through life, both use fulness and happiness depend upon the relations we form, upon the points of contact we choose with the persons and things sur rounding us. From every relationship you get something good or bad—the ob jetc should be to choose those points of contact that yield the most good. The man, woman ,or child who overlooks the advantage of a connection with a good bank is surely making a mistake. 1 Like other relationships, that with a bank develops as it ages —therefore now is the time to start it.

Harlan Quoted in Michigan. "In the case of Attorney General ex rel Barbour et al. vs. Lindsay et al., decided by the supreme court of Michigan January 23, 1914, wherein the question of an emergency clause was before the court, the language used by Justice Harlan was quoted, indicating that the members of the supreme court of Michigan considered this language as applicable to the case before them. The supreme court of Michigan in its decision held that act to which an emergency clause had been attached, was not within the classification fixed by the constitu tional provision relating to emergen cies and the action of the legislature in so determining was declared in valid. "To place a law into immediate effect by adding the emergency would preclude the possibility of the voters of the state exercising the rights re served unto themselves under the constitutional provision providing for a referendum. "It appears to me that such action on the part of the legislative branch of the government might be construed by the voters as at least a technical violation of the constitution. All will agree that legislative acts ought to be so framed that the public cannot say with truth that the law making power of the state is itself showing lack of respect for the fundamental law of the state, which is its constitu tion."
