Troy Weekly News TROY, LATAH COUNTY, IDAHO, APRIL 26, 1907. NO 42 VOL. 13 The Story of the Initiative and Referendum in the State of Oregon Ä ' ! OREGON'S "BIG STICK. >> Is the subject for an intensely interesting ard timely article in the May issue of The Pacific Monthly— published in Portland, Oregon—inter esting to every citizen because it tells of the use of supreme power by the people. Timely because it offers a sure and safe antidote for the poison and graft of corrupt machine politics. The subject is handled graphically by Lute Pease—the well-known Western writer—who gives an extremely inter esting and authorative account of the direct legislation—lirect nomination j movement, and other great reforms 1 which have placed Oregon in the fore front of the world's political progress. "It has been said that every form of government except a pure democracy has been weighed and found wanting." Oregon has practically become a pure democracy. "A peaceful revolution has been accomplished in this state— a revolution that bids fair to spread throughout the Union." Oklahoma, Dakota, Washington and various other states are borrowing Oregon's idea en tire or in part, or are striving to se cure reforms along similar lines. Various writers have given some at tention to the Oregon movement, but comparatively few people, other than its originators, seem to have grasped more than a hint of its far-reaching and revolutionary character. It has remained for Mr. Pease, who has fol lowed the movement from its incip iency, to tell the story intelligently and interestingly. Oregon complacently confronts the pessimists of the republic with startling statements somewhat as follows: If our representatives do not repre sent us, we have power to force them to do so. We can reject any law that we dont want, or ourselves enact any law that we do want. We have knocked out the boss and the machine. We have just elected two United States Senators in twenty minutes without "boodle or booze or even a cigar," and our legislature has just completed a session of extraordinary activity, untainted by any charge of coiruption. "And for such achievement the state and the United States at large may give thanks for the persistence of a small coterie, once laughed at by politicians as 'Pops,' 'cranks' and 'visionaries' led by a 'dreamer' S. U'Ren." ■W. It can truthfully be said that no subject of greater interest, of greater moment to the people of the entire country, has ever appeared in our National Press. Let us hope that every believer in our National slogan, "A government of the people and for the people," may read the story of Western freedom and success, and that it may be the seed which falls, ! i il. ,ui proved ana healtmul ingredients. It makes the finest flavored, • st tender, delicious and health not on stony ground but in fallow fields to sprout and spread throughout our nation.—Pacific Monthly.

We are now taught tnat animals only diner from human beings in degree of intelligence —not in kind. If the dumb animals are the special property of man, it seems strange that the proprietor should have so long failed in utilizing the greater part of his property. It seems strange that it should be necessary to enact laws to prevent cruelty to animals. Many a man has declared his right to abuse and even mutilate his dumb animals because he owned them. The following taker from "Our Dumb Animals," will give the reader some idea of the work be ing done to prevent cruelty to animals: "From report of Charles A.

It Pays to Raise Com Potlatch pigs are keeping pace with the other good things of this section, and demonstrating the fact that there is money in raising hogs on home-grown corn. This week Erick Rtierson, who own a fine farm on Little Bear ridge east of Troy, sold Chas. Sullivan,the local butcher, five head of corn fed hogs, one year old. And the corn was raised by Mr. Reierson on his farm here. The five hogs weighed 1670 pounds and brought Mr. Reierson $125.25, live weight. In this there is a whole sermon relative to the value of farm land of this section of the Inland Em pire. And there is food for thought to. the man looking for an investment in agricultural lands. Our climate and soil are adapted to the successful culture of corn and beans, making summer fallowing unnecessary. By years of experimenting it has been demonstrated that corn and beans will mature and produce large and profitable crops, and that land, instead of lying idle, planted to either crop, will produce bigger and better crops of grain during the two following seasons. This makes farm lands of this section worth more than j land where the owner must let it lay I idle one-third of the time, and ought to make the Potlatch soil the most valuable j in the Northwest. Corn fed hogs are i something new in the West but that | f ! i ai , f . , . î fact will not prevent the farmers of this , r . , .
