Guthrie Okla. June 23. A decision
of two-fold value was handed down by
the state supreme court here yester-
day Associate Justice Williams writ-
ing the opinion. The court upholds
Secretary of State Bill Cross in over-
ruling the protests filed against the
"grandfather clause" Initiative peti-
tions by the socialists and the three
aged negro voters of Guthrie and in
passing upon the case before them
found that the 1910 initiative and refer-
endum law became effective when it
was signed by Governor Haskell last
.March and is now the governing law
over elections held tinder the initia-
tive and referendum.
The significance of this decision of
th ecourt that the 11)07-1908 Initiative
and referendum election law has been
superceded by that of 1910 (senate bill
No. 126 by Senator Taylor) will be ap-
preciated when It Is recalled that the
new law provides the special ballot for
the vote on the "grandfather clause"
and further that the republicans have
recently filed two referendum petitions
against the 1910 law which the court
now finds to have gone into effect
three months ago.
The necessity of deciding whether
the 1907-1908 or 1910 law prevailed rel-
ative to elections under the Inltiat've
and referendum was due to the fact
that the question before the court
hinged directly on that point. The
protests tts against tho "grandfather
clause" petitions contended that no-
tices were served contrary to the 1907.
1908 law. The secretary of state set
up the defense that they were served
!n accordance with the 1910 law and It
was up to the court to decide which
law now prevails.
That the republicans will immediate-
ly attack the validity of tht 1910 law-
is believed though In what manner Is.
Taylor Is Happy.
Senator Taylor never discovered the
idea of disfranchising the ignorant ne-
6ro in Oklahoma but he did thlnlc out
and originate the plan by which the
bill could escape a delay or holdup by
a republican referendum petition. This
was the unique feature of the Taylor
bill. Some thought it would not work.
The republicans have tested it and the
supreme court has said Taaylor's plan
was all O. K. aand that no referendum
can bo ordered against the "grand-
father clause." No man in Oklahoma
is more rejoiced than is Senator L. K.
Taylor of Chickasha.
