In those days of local political tur-

view of tho Wichita Usglo. a strong
Republican papar which says: "Tho

"Dining tho short period of time in
Which tho Initiative and rflercndunf

fested n very lively disposition (o ox-
vrclse their power thereunder. They
have however evidenced a conserva-

denuuntrnto that such powers may bo

cisive majority the nctlon of tha

thoro has been no nttompt to enacf
