WHEN IT DID NOT GIVE
VOTE TO THE PEOPLE
The unbiased and impartial Lin
coln Star recognizes that Omaha
is faced by a serious problem in
connection with a vote on the pow
er question. In a recent editorial
the Star made it clear that there
is a strong possibility that the leg
islature blundered in not specific
ally providing for a people' vote
when L. B. 204 was finally passed.
Following is the Star’s editorial:
A RIGHT TO VOTE
It is not altogether clear what
has happened in Omaha’s power
One of the latest developments
unofficially reported is that under I
the provisions of LB 204, the leg- '
islature gave a flat grant of auth
ority to the people’s power com
mission to go ahead with its pro
gram without submitting the ques
tion to the people of Omaha. That
may be the correct legal interpret
ation. If it is, then the legislat
ors who voted for LB 204 will be
horrified in looking upon the fruits
of their own labors. Surely they :
nor anyone else would want to
deny the American people the right i
to vote any time upon anything in j
which there is a genuine popular i
interest, and to vote at a free elec- ,
But, say the lawyers, the lawyers
providing opinions for the Omaha
City council, LB 204, is not an ord
inance—subject to poular vote un
der the provisions of the initiative)
and referendum. LB 204 is a leg
islative act, and in its effect upon
the Omaha city council, and the
people’s power commission, ap
pointed by the governor and the
mayor of Omaha, the sole author
ity granted is purely administra
tive to put the provisions of LB.
204 into effect.
If that is the case, it wouldn’t be
surprising if Senator C. Petrus
Peterson is surprised at his own
It wouldn’t be surprising if Sen
ator Harry Gantz, and Senator Joe
Reavis, and all of the other Sen
ators who voted for LB 204 would
be dismayed that if in practical ef
fect they had said to the people of
Omaha that a vote could not be

also touching and uplifting.
The sermon delivered by the
pastor at the evening worship was
very good. “The talents” was the
subject, Matthews 25, chapter the
text. This sermon was timely
bringing home to us the fact that
we must use those talents that God
has given to Us profitably and for

If you are buying a laxative

Ques. Why do most people choose
a popular laxative instead of a les
