No More Hysteria
The opposition of the Statesman
to the initiative and referendum, and
to recall of executive and judicial of
ficers, is of long standing and well
known. Therefore it is to be expect
ed that we are not in sympathy with
the Citizens’ Party and the commis
sion form of government. Yet we
realize that no public question is one
sided and that arguments can be
brought against our position, not
good ones we believe, but still argu
ments that are convincing to some
voters. Therefore we believe that we
owe it to our good sense to avoid
accusing our opponents of being al
together vile or foolish. Yet strange
to say, those who oppose us, spend
far more time in plain abuse than in
argument to show the need of a
change of system. If the Citizens
Party’ adherents were defending the
prevailing condition abuse might
serve, but since they are clamoring
for a change, it is to reason they
Two years ago in a campaign char
acterized by the same methods, the
voters were persuaded to reject pro
positions to buy the water plant or
to grant an extension of franchise.
The arguments used to show that a
new plant could be built for half the
price of the old, were simply abuse.
The result was to be expected. “Those
who live by the sword shall die by
the sword.” Those who get political
success without a substantial founda
tion of fact and reason, shall fall
through their folly. For two years
the case has been in court and re
cently, the one man upon whose pro
fessional knowledge and skill the pro
posed plant rested, admitted under
oath in the United States court that
his investigations were inadequate to
show sufficient water to supply a
new plant, and such investigations as
he had made showed a considerable
advance in the cost of water rights
over the estimate he gave during the
progress of that campaign.
However, Denver people apologize
to their conscience for using abuse
as their guide in voting instead of
reason, they cannot evade paying the
So it is that The Statesman calls
the attention of voters in the coming
election to the need of judging the
proposals submitted, by facts and rea
son rather than by abuse of those
who oppose them. There are some
good points about them and it is for
us to see whether they are greater
than the good points of the proposi
tions they seek to supplant. It is not
an argument for the commision form
of government, for instance, that
Mayor Speer has been unsatisfactory.
A bad official does not mean that
the system is bad. On the other
hand, if we were to grant that the
commission form of government was
good, that would not prevent poor
commissioners from making it as
odious as do poor officials make pres
ent conditions undesirable.
Voters must learn to distinguish be
tween the means and the man.

NOTES OF THE ZION
The Easter services at Zion wet*
the most elaborate, the most insp.
ing and enjoyable of any we haw
known for a number of years. A
very entertaining program by the
children at 10 o’clock, the Easter s«
mon at 11, and a musical program
the choir at night made up the ord*
for the day. The perfect weather
brought out an immense eongreg
tion which taxed the capacity of t
building at each service.
By request choir repeated the
cantata which was repdered tin*
Thursday evening before. Too mu
praise cannot be given the choir, and
Mrs. Faulkner for the splendid ren
dition of this most difficult and plott
ing cantata, “The Seven Last Wore
of Jesus.’’ To be able to interpr
so successfully the tragic meaning
