The attorneys will moot horo July

Oregon Supreme court, tihat tho lnltl

makes good tho proposition in Okla
homa, and that amending this provis
ion in the constitution, so that tho

ated by tho people, practically Inserts
tho Oregon court opinion in tho Okla

Mr. Hayes says that nothing has
been taken away from tho forco of the

the other hand It is ovon clearer uhan

it cites tho fact that tho provision Is
