In the closing hours of the recent session, the house, after three times defeating this proposi tion, passed a similar measure that had gone through the senate by a majority of two votes. The bill provides that the candi dates for United States senator shall be nominated the same as at present under the primary election law. They will still be nominated at the general election by a major ity of the legislative districts. But, in other respects, the law is materially changed. The voters may merely instruct or advise the members of the legislature, who will, in turn, select the senator. Under the new Kansas-Oregon plan law, candidates for represen tative or state senator may attach to their petitions or nomination papers one of two statements re garding the United States senator ship. They may declare that they will be bound by the vote of the people for United States senator at the general election or that they will merely be advised by it These statements my be filed with the secretary of state or county clerk along with the petitions or nomination papers. The candi date may select either statement One of these statements contains the following provision: I state to the people of Kan sas, as well as to the people of my representative (or senator ial) district, that during my term of office I will always vote for that candidate for United States senator who has received the highest number of the people's votes for that position at the general elect-' ion in the state at large next . preceding the election of the United States senator, with out regard Co my individual preferences or party nomina tions for that office. The other contains this provision: During my term of office I shall consider the vote of the people for United States sena tor at any general election in the state at large as nothing more than a recommendation, which. I shall be at liberty to wholly disregard if the reason for so doing seems to me to be sufficient. The bill provides that the per son receiving the highest vote for United States senator shall be giv en a certificate by the secretary of state, reciting that fact and show ing total number of votes received at the general election. There is no penalty provided for the mem ber of the legislature who violates his pledge. The bill presumes that the people will take care of that matter. In the final test the standpat republicans and the lead ers on the democratic side made a determined fight to beat the bill, but they could not muster sufficient votes. The insurgent republican and the rank and file of the demo crats declared the people wanted a trial of the Oregon plan, and they voted for it. Many well informed politicans predict that Kansas will repeat the recent Oregon experience and that a democrat may be chosen United States senator by a republican legislature. The .prediction is based on the peculiar political con ditions in the republican party in this state. With Senator Curtis a radical standpatter, and Governor Stubbs a leading insurgent, both fighting for the senatorship, it is believed that State Senator George 11. Hodges, democratic candidate, will receive the highest vote at the general election. If the members are pledged un der the first statement to cast their votes for the candidate receiving the majority or plurality vote of the people. Hodges would be chosen senator, for it is conceded that, with the republican vote di vided between Stubbs and Curtis, Hodges the democrat would win. Another law of far reaching political effect was passed in the closing hours of the Kansas legis lature. The bill prohibits the publication of unsigned political art icles in newspapers and no person is permitted to insert articles which tend to injure any candidate for public office. It has been charged that under the Statewide primary election law only rich men or those able to pay for news paper space, could make a cam paign for a state office. This bill is aimed at Governor Stubbs and others who have used unlimited space in the daily and local news papers of the state in the promo tion of their political interests.
