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

"The bill provides that the mem

commissioner of public lands, the
secretary of state and the state treas

board of state land commissioners
consists of the commissioner of pub

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the state tax commission be repealed.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

by the house of representatives, has
not, up to the present time, been act

Under the constitution of the state,
provision is made that all laws shall

the state government and its existing
public institutions.'
Not True Emergency.
"I have carefully scrutinized this
bill and fall to find In Its provisions

the state constitution, as above
quoted, without doubt is intended to
allow the legislature, in cases of Im

of placing a law in effect immediate

this constitutional provision.

"In the case of Attorney General

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

of the government might be construed
by the voters as at least a technical
