CANON’ CITY RECORD, THI USED AY, SEPTEMBER 14,1911. What Is the Direct Legislation League? Grand Junction Sentinel.) 1 The Direct Legislation league, ac cording to reports from Denver, have . agreed to submit certain constjtu j tional amendments under the initia tive and referendum. We are for the initiative and referendum, b.it as for the Direct Legislation League the »*e -1 ponent sayeth not. Who and what is this league? Is it a self-appointed in stitution or was it nominated and duly elected by the great Common I People? Is it a close corporation, or are the bookß open for subscription? If it is self-appointed, is not that the identical way in which the ward heeler and the political boss, whom we are hoping to relegate to private life secured his first appointment and proceeded to fasten himself, as a 1 barnacle, upon the ship of state? The men who compose this league may b - t best In the commonwealth, and t ; eir motives may be as patriotic as were the fires that stirred the heart ;of the revolutionary soldier. Not one soul in that league may have a de s:gn upon the office of constable, nor . a longing for a United States senator srrip, but the method, the method, the method It is the same old thing with i a new coterie in charge, perhaps.

After Jumping through the plate class the horse bucked and complete ly demolished the interior of the store, wrecking the showcases and even go ing behind the prescription counter and wrecking the rear part of the store. Wilbert escaped wish only a slight cut on his neck. The horse probably a ill have to be shot. Wilbert staid with the horse until the animal fell. Mclntosh, who was alone in the drug store, was so startled he was unable to do anything, and a crowd had col lected before he realized what was happening. Eyewitnesses state that the horse became unmanagable when Wilbert stopped at a tamale stand across the street.

Portland, Me., Sept. 12 —Prohibi- tionists today began securing ten thousand signatures on a petition to ask the legislature to order another popular vote on the liquor question. Yesterday’s vote, which resulted in a victory for the wets by about 525, eliminates the constitutional amend ment prohibiting the sale of liquor, but it does not, by any means, mean limitless bar rooms, j Governor Plaisted will probably . call a special session of the legisla , ture to discuss the option.
