REFERENDUM Mr. Knowles Analyzes the Two Principal Objects to the Bill j Special to THE EVENING JOURNAL. | DOVER. Del., Feb. MR. KANE ALSO SPEAKS FOR MEASURE William W. Know les in bis oddress to the State Senate yesterday analyzed the two prlncipal arguments advanced against ihe Initiative and Referendum amend me ; , t. whlch , h " p f ,8Pd th * Hoa8P and is now In Senate committee. Mr. Knowles in part said; 'There are two objections that have been urged against the Amendment to the Constitution of this State provld ing for the initiative and lieferen „ • , . . -The first object,on is urged by he enemtes of he Amendment on ho ground If adopted, It will enable the people of Wilmington and New Castle county to legislate for the whole State and w ill thereby place Sussex and Kent counties wholely at the mercy of New Castle county. "Thls objection lias no foundation In fact, liiere is not a single valid reason that can be urged against the measure on that ground, but It is simply put forth as an appeal to the prejudices of the people of the two lower rouiities with tile hope that, the legislators ol I lo se two sections of our Slate may bo driven Into violent opposition to the Amendment. "It must he remembered, ignorantly or wisely, he who attempts to array one section of this State against another, or who will attempt \o excite the prejudices of the people of the I two lower counties against the people ;of New Castle county and the city of .Wilmington without adequate reason lean be nothing less than a Benedict Arno *d • The Fifteenth Section of the 'Amendment clearly gives to each county the right to decide and vote ■upon the measures affecting such 1 county. Whatever measure might be voted for on behalf of New Castle .county would no be voted for m eith ,er of the other two counties. Under •thls amendment. Sussex. Kent and Jnaâ, h ? absolutely ndej, enden and distinct as the fingers . ànà 't.Te »; rfon,,m8 1,8 . separate and Independent govern-) mental function, and each voting aep-j „„ __,r j : matply on inoasurcB affecting the re ■ apective counties. Insofar ns the 1 .whole State Is concerned, all three counties would be found voting to-,*', gether, but there Is no law that could be righteously formulated Into a 1,111 that would be a blessing to New Cas tie county and a detriment to the other two counties when applied to State matters araî. nent under thil, aL L. MIi« a b"n c«ld orUuate 7n N^r Caatîe county for the purpose of putting the two lower counties wholely at the merev of New Castle countv if such a condition could' possibly arise underi the Amendment, all that would be upcrusary for Sussex and Kent conn tics to do would he to Initiate a bill providing that such a measure should. not apply to the two lower counties. ThusHcan readily l,e seen that every countv would bo Ahsolutelv inripnpn- ■ dont of (he other so far as measures affecting county matter« are concern ' ed; likewise all cities and (owns in (be State will have their rights under local self-government. Independent of «ach other "The second objection urged against the amendment is that the percen tages for filing Initiative and Refer endum measures are too low. The I amendment provides that aile law mav l>e initiated bv a netition signed hv I * 3 eight per cent, or a referendum of five percent, of the qualified voters, based upon all the votes cast for all candi dates for Governor at the general election last preceding the filing of any Initiative or Referendum petition a slate or county measure. In order ' that no one may become gunshot at 1 the percentages proposed In the amendment. on 'U will be seep that sixteen states , of our Federal Union have already j adopted the Initiative and Referendum, - and none, with the exception of Now ! Mexico, Nebraska, Arizona, and Maine, ree.ulre more than eight I per rent, on the Initiative and only j two of these, Nevada and Maine, re- I Nevada I quire more than five per cent, on the ] Referendum. "Let us talk about our own State. 1 We have the Initiative and lieferen- 1 dum in the State of Delaware Local Option Question. "Whenever the I ( a majority of all the , members elected to each House of the General Assembly from any one of Hie Local Option Districts in this I Stale shall request the submission of ' the question of License or No-Lirense on In any one of said districts in any dis trict In which the majority may change to be, the General Assembly •hall provide for the submission of such question to the qualified electors In such district at the next General Election thereafter. "The City of Wilmington bag a rep resentation in both House of Seven Members. Four of these Members, at any time before the time for the sub mission of new business to the Legis lature was closed, could have said to the ninety thousand people or the twenty thousand male voters In the City of Wilmington that an election In the fall of 1914 must he held on the Local Option Question. When you | find what per cent, of twenty thous ami voters in AVilmington four mem- j hers are, you will see the per cent, j required for the submission of the Ivocal Option Question to the voters 1 In the City of Wilmington lg Insigni ficant when compared to the Initia- i live Petition of eight per cent, as pro vlded in this Amendment. The small , per cent, of the number of men re- t quired to submit, the Local Option Qnestion to the voters of any one Local Option District In the State ad miu of no comparison to the per cent. In the proposed Amendment. "When we consider the way and manner In which the Initiative and R.-fercndum Petitiops will have to be * PPa ? 9d „ undpr ,kp Amendment pro posed. It will readily be seen that ten j rrr P I ^". , .. 1 on rons,|hl H f >n*I Amend- ] ment Petitions is sufficient ; eight per , cent 1« fully sufficient fo* the Initia, live Petitions, and five per cent, is | enough on the Referendum."

Mayor Harrison W. j Howell at once railed up the Wash ington Fire House over the telephone and asked if the report was cprrect. The member informed him, the Mayor said, that such was the case. Mayor Howell told the Washington Company représentative that he was with the volunteer firemen as long as they did what was right, but when they did anything wrong, he was not with them. Mayor Howell Instructed Clerk Mc Manus of City Council to w ithhold the appropriation due the Washington Company until the matter of their re fusal to go is threshed out. This amounts to $2950 and is due at the next meeting of City Council. In speaking of the affair, Mayor, Howell said: "I do not know wheth ; er we have the authority lo- withhold this appropriation, but if w e have not then it is time that we should get It." Robert W. Porter, former fire chief and president of the Company, In a statement to a reporter of THE EVENING JOURNAL today, said; "Some time ago, when the chemical' was bought it was the only one in the city, and afterwards the apparatus was taken outside the city in response to a call for help. On that trip the axle was bent, one ho*-se wa* Injured. and all this cost was borne ny the! company. At a meeting shortly af-1 terward* resolutions «ere adopted.

"This morning, when Fire Chief Ainscow came to the engine ' ouse the situation was explained to him, and he was asked If he would shoulder the fine levied on the member, did not'make any reply, and none of the members thought they should take the responsibility, the aparatut remained here."

When they ar rived there they, received word that the fire was under control and their services were not needed. They then started back home, disappointed that they could not have a hand In the fire-fighting at the seaside. The train made the run of 64 1-2 miles from Wilmington to Harrington in 86 minutes, arriving there at 12.01 o'clock. J. A. Neugebauer was con ductor, L. E. Smack flagman, Fred Hall engineer and James Redden fire man of the special train. The Robbins Hose Company of Dover left that town at 10.56 o'clock and arrived in Rehoboth about 12.30 just as the fire had «pent itself. î AGED WOMAN'S s WEALTH GOES.
