substitute section for section 9, ai-

present prohibits the consolidation ot

Would Discuss Election Law.
Representative Clark of Pawnet
County, who was the republican mi-
nority's candidate for Speaker of tbe
Second Legislature, has written tw
State Chairman Norris of the re-
publican committee, asking him to
call a meeting of the committee at
Enid April I for the purpose of de-
termining the party'B course toward
the recently enacted general law. Tho
law Is looked upon by republican
members of the Legislature as favor-
ing th'i party in control of the state
machinery, hence, they say, disad-
vantageous to their own party. It la
understood that the policy to be
settled at the Enid meeting will also
Include whether a referendum will
be asked upon the bill recently ap-
proved which vests discretion In ti.e
Governor as to whether referred and
Initiated bills shall be disposed ot
at a special or general election: also
whether a referendum will be asked
against the new general election
measure or the Initiation of an en-
tirely new bill. By calling for tbe
referendum both measures can be
placed out ot commission until tb«
next general election; otherwise they
become effective in June.
