Supreme Court Preserves Critical
Attitude in Listening to State
meats of Opponents,
White Demands Proof of Assertions
Made by Attorney.
Justices Must Define Republican
Form of Government.
jLawyers Araroe that System Carries
with It Violation of "Equal
Protection of the Lam''
"WASHINGTON. Nov. t-The critical
manner In which the supreme court of
the United States today listened to argu
ment that the Initiative and referendum
method of legislation in this country Is
Unconstitutional brought encouragement
to the friend of the By item. Oral argu
ments on both aides of the question were
completed before the court adjourned for
the day.
E. a nilsbury of San Francisco, and
t?. ' n. Dunway of Fortland, Ore., were
heard In opposition to the method In two
Oregon canes. When Mr. Plllsbury re
marked that there could not, with due
regard for the federal constitution, be
two legislative powers In a state, namely,
the legislature and the people, Justice
(Burton Interrupted him:
"What is a state constitution but an
Organized act of legislation by the peo
ple?" inquired the justice.
"That Is expressly what I understand
It to be," responded Mr. Plllsbury.
"Then there Is legislative power In the
"To make a constitution: yes."
Mr. Plllsbury suggested that the people
tnlght put Into their state constitution
anything not In conflict with the restric
tions of the federal constitution.
White Asks for Proof.
"What are the restrictions which you
Claim are violated In this particular
tase?" Inquired Chief Justice White.
"The provision for a legislature."
The chief Justice askd him to read It.
"I cannot read it; It Is Implied In a
Uozen places," said the attorney. "And,
also, the constitution has been construed
by this court to Imply that there must
be a leglslatpe.''
The chief justice .asked, for the .cases
In which the point had been In Issue, but
the attorney did tot give them. .
It was further argued that taxes Im
posed under the-Initiative method-were
rot by "due process of law" and violated
tha. mini nrntMtton nf the lawn' no
long as some persons were taxed under
initiative laws and others under legis
lative enactments.
Attorney General Crawford of Oregon
declared that the question of whether the
method violated the guaranty of the
United States In the federal constitution
of a "republican form of government to
very state" was a political question for
congress to decide and not a Judicial one
for the courts to pass upon. He Inquired
how the court would enforce its decision
if congress and Oregon were opposed to It
Frank 8. Grant and William C. Hen
bow of Portland, Ore., spoke in the In
terest of "home rule."
States Alone Interested.
George Fred Williams of Boston argued
that only a party to the "guaranty" to
States could ask the United States to
make good its promise that every state
Should have a republican form of gov
ernment A corporation, he said, could
not do so, because the guaranty was to
the states.
"I bave heard no state objecting to the
Oregon form of government," said Mr.
Chief Justice White suggested that the
Word "form" in the constitution lent sup
port to Mr. Williams' Interpretation of
the word "guaranty." .
Jackson H. Ralston of this city con
tended that the opponents of the method
were wrong In arguing that the word
"republican" was used In the constitu
tion as a synonym for. "representative."
He argued It was used in contract to
monarchical." 1 . .....
Justice Holmes suggested this' interpre
tation would be In conformity with a rule

Deer Hunters Kill
1 Forty-Seven Men So,
Far This Season
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8-The so-called
"list of Immortals" of the United States
biological survey a roster kept by that
bureau of all hunting fatalities In this
country already this year has had added
to It lorty-scven names. Fro mthls In
formation the bureau hopes after a few
years to be able to deduce general princi
ples which will be of value In framing
"life saving" federal and state game
"One fact which we have learned during
the three years we have kept this ree
ord," said rr. T. P. rainier, chief of the
bureau today, "Is that there are practic
ally no deer hunting accidents in states
which prohibit the shooting of does. This
Is because In those states the hunter
hesitates a moment before firing to de
termine whether the animal Is a doe or
buck. In case the animal happens to be
of the two-legged variety that brief pause
before pulling the trigger is enough to
save human life. The New Jersey shoot
ing case was an exception to that rule."
More than ISO people were killed last
year In hunting accidents. This was con
siderably larger than the number In 1909.
which in turn was 60 per cent In excess
of the IMS fatalities.
"Of the forty-seven killed So i'ar this
year," said Dr. Palmer, "the I argent num
ber was reported from Michigan, with fif
teen deaths; New York coming second
with nine, Washington and New Jersey
being tied for third place, with three fa
talities each."
Kansas City Man
Had Never Heard
of the Hyde Case
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 8.-Prospects
for obtaining a Jury to try the Dr. B.
Clarke Hyde murder case before the end
of next week appear poor. The trial cen
tered upon Its eleventh day today with
only twenty of the forty-seven temporary
Jurymen who must be obtained In the box.
The work of qualifying men Is moving
slower now than it has at any stage of
the proceedings, only one talesman being
obtained yesterday.
James Marsh of Kansas City and S. S.
Embrey of Grain Valley, Mo., were ao
cepted as talesmen today.
Although he had lived In this city seven
years Marsh said he had never heard of
the Hyde case until last night when he
was summoned as a venireman. After he
received the subpoena he said he read
something about the case to learn "what
It was all about." Marsh was accepted
by both sides at once.
A temporary Juryman approached Judge
Porterfleld today and confessed that h
had served a prison , term for man
slaughter twenty-two years ago. The
statutes provide that no one who has
been convicted of a' felony can serve as
a Juryman. This -was made plain to the
talesman at the time of his examination,
but ha was too proud to make the con
fession in the crowded court room. The
matter has since weighed heavily on his
conscience and he finally decided to con
fess to the court In private.
The Juror doubtless will be excused.
Eleventh Talesman
Accepted for Cause
in McNamara Case
LOS ANGELES. Cal., Nov. i. With
one more Juror accepted as to cause by
both sides soon after court opened today
in the McNamara trial, prospects for a
full Jury box before the close of court
appeared excellent. Byron Lick, a Pasa
dena mill owner, was the eleventh man
H. V. Blenklron, ' a real estate dealer.
the only other talesman In the jury box
not yet accepted, was then examined.
Venireman W. H. Andrews remained
outside the box, and It was expected that
if neither Andrews nor Blenklron was ac
cepted, court proceedings might be sus
pended until more talesmen could be se
cured. Blenklron was accepted by the
defense after less thdn five minutes' ex
amination by Attorney Clarence S. Dar-
row, chief of counsel for the defense.
Both sides came into court prepared to
exercise peremptory challenges against
Jurors accepted as to cause whom they
believe would not make fair Juorors.
It was expected that not more than
three or tour jurors at the outside would
be lcft'at the conclusion of this process.
Two talesmen, George McKee and F.
D. Green, were HI and received medical
treatment last night, but were reported
recovered today.
Denver Wants Both
National Conventions
' DENVER, Colo., Nov. J. A concerted
movement on the part of the Denver
citizens to raise funds for. the purpose
of securing both the republican and demo
cratic national conventions for this city
started today in definite form. A. L.
Mohler of Omaha, president of the Union
Pacific, said he would head a contribu
tion list with V2.S00 and others have ex
pressed willingness to contribute toward
the fund necessary to send delegations
to can upon the republican and demo
cratic national committees. Announce
ment of the proposal of President Mohlur
was made to the Denver Convention
league today by Gerrlt Fort, general pas
senger traffic manager of the Union Pa
cific here.

Explosion of Gas
CASPER, Wyo., Nov. J.-Speclal.)-Mrs.
M. Taylor, cook at one of the main camps
of the Franco-American Oil company,
was seriously burned yesterday by ths
explosion of natural gas that leaked from
the pipes supplying the kitchen stove.
The woman, by rare presence of mind,
faved herself by rushing outside and
throwing an old quilt over her head,
smothering the flames that were consum
ing her hair and clothing.. The roof of
the cook house was blown off. but quick
work saved the building from destruc
tion. Mrs. Taylor will recover, but will
be scarred.

At 6:30 o'clock All telephone and tele

was cut off. The rebel throng grew to
greater proportions and in the natural
excitement a number of shots were fired
by the government forces In the direction
of the mob, but these were without ef

At this point the Taotai fled and the

PARIS, Nov. 3. The contents of the
Franco-German accord, officially given
out today, show that Germany recognises
the right of France to establish a pro
tectorate In Morocco and both nations
engage to obtain the adhesion to this ac
cord of the other signatories to the
Algeclras agreement.
France, as compensation for German
recognition of Its protectorate In Mo
rocco, cedes to Germany about 250,000
square kilometers In northern Frenah
Congo, touching the German Kameruna.
The territory ceded Is Inhabited by
about 1,000,000 negroes and has a com'
merce Valued at S2,4OO,O0O annually. ,
In reference to Morocco, Franco agrees
to safeguard the economic quality and
commercial liberty for which provision Is
made In existing treaties. The only refer
ence to commercial rights In the ceded
territory is the mutual agreement to take
over the rights and obligations In con
nection with the companies holding con
cessions there.

head off a movement ot democrats to
support Hopkins.
Attorney Marble: "Did you ever tell

I did not toil anyone that I expected
Hopkins to be elected."

I said I agreed with hint."
