'The Omaha ORAL ARGUMENT OiN REFERENDUM Supreme Court Preserves Critical Attitude in Listening to State meats of Opponents, JS ALLEGED UNCONSTITUTIONAL White Demands Proof of Assertions Made by Attorney. GUABANT YTO STATES INVOLVED Justices Must Define Republican Form of Government. LEGALITY OF TAXES QUESTIONED jLawyers Araroe that System Carries with It Violation of "Equal Protection of the Lam'' Clan.e. "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 teople." "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. William. 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 Of logic.

U 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 laws. "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 chosen. 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.
