Present Status of Taylor Law Ref-
Guthrie, Okla.. Sept. 2.- The
j supreme court will pass finally,
next Tuesday, on the petitions filed
by the republican state organiza-
tion for a referendum vote on the
Taylor election law. Several
weeks ago., on a motion filed by
former Chief Justice John H Bur-
ford. representing .he state repub-
lican committee, a temporary writ
of mandamus was issued by Chief
Justice M J Kane, compelling the
secretary of state to recieve and
properly file the petition asking
for a referendum election.
This action by Judge Kane
| followed the decision by the sec-
retary of state that no petitions
had been filed with him asking
such a referendum election.
Several days later W. A. Led-
better, the general solicitor in Ok-
lahoma for the Waters-Pierce Oil
Co.. filed an answer in the sup-
reme court as a representative of
the demorcatic state administra-
tion attempting to show the people
| of Oklahoma whv they should be
deprived i>f a referendum vote on
the Taylor electio:. law. It is won-
dered, sometimes, why the Stand-
ard Oil always eomes to the relief
of the democratic state administra-
Jtion. It will be remembered, too.
that state senator Yeager, demo-
crat «>f Tulsa, recently said that
'the Standard is the commercial
ally in Okalhoma of the dem-
Judge Burford, representing the
state republican committee, then
filede a brief in the supreme
court,-on August 10, showing that
the initiative and referendum pro-
visions of the state constitution
are but a joke in the hands ot the
democrats, and showing too, be-
yond a doubt, that when the sec-
retary of state refused to receive
and properly file the petitions for
the Taylor law referendum, he vio-
lated a law and disregarded a pub-
If the writ is made permanent,
then the secretary of state must
file the referendum petitions, must
consider the protests filed against
the petitions by several of the
state democracy and must decide
whether or not the protests shall
stand. If he decides the protests
are sufficient, then the republican
state organization must again ap-
peal to the state supreme court,
this time being squarely up for a
decision the merits and provisions
of the initiative and referendum
laws of the state.
The voters must remember that
the petitions were legally circulat-
ed throughout the state, legally
signed by legal voters, and legally
filed with the secretary of state who
then violated a public duty by ig-
noring the petitions entirely in
urder to defeat the referendum
In day Chicago
A Mangum lady now visiting in
Chicago writes home folks as fol-
lows: Sunday we visited Jackson
Park, the old world's fair grounds
and went rowing. It was great
and the views were lovely. "Mon-
day sister and I took in River
View Park. They had everything
there to catch the five and ten
cent pieces that you could imagine,
am quite sure they just moved the
Midway from the St. Louis
World's Fair to River View. It
was the first time I had ever seen
the shoot the chutes and it was all
beautiful and grand. Tuesday we
went to Lincoln Park and Lake
Shore Drive whexe the dead swells
live—Mrs. Potter Palmer included.
It was all so beautiful and the lake!
I could never tire of looking at it.
"Wednesday I went to the Stu-
debaker theater and saw "The
Candy Shop." That was about the
grandest thing in the spectacular
show line that yours truly ever be-
held. The last act, only had two,
the scene was laid at Coney Island,
N. Y. The candy shop employees
had gone on their summer vacation
and while there had engaged in
vaudeville stunts to pay expenses.
There came in the fine dancing and
singing. The scenic effects were
a dream. The Ferris wheel was
there brilliant with thousands of
electric lights. The shoot the
chutes too, with water and boats
that seemed the real thing until
the opera glasses showed the delus-
ion. There were bridges over la-
goons with automobiles running
across. Barkers in front of the
shows, etc. Every little detail
was looked after. It sure looked
like Coney Island by night.
"Saturday I shall take in another
show but don't know which one
yet but think Jefferson DeAngelis
will catch me. "The Traveling
Salesman" is here. I had read so
much about that in the magazines,
also "A Gentleman from Mississip-
pi." I p.m going to indulge in all
of them for I am show hungry.
"Oh yes. I went down town early
yesterday and visited the Fine Arts
Museum. You remember the
building, had the big lions out in
front standing sentinel and which
greeted us every evening when we
returned from the World's Fair
Grounds? The statuary in there is
an artists dream of all that is beau-
