Analysis of the statements regar^- ^ng the mental atfitudo of the dele- sates eiecf.ed. discloses the fact that .••II of the progressives are for the initiative and referendum and many of tiiem want provisions for the re"•<'! of the jiidiciar.v. Practically ev- "ry labor delegate stands for the re- c::ill Of all officers. Many of the farm- T delegates however, while favoring he initiative and referendum refuse to include the recall of .fudges in their program, jit the same time supporting Hiis idea for other offici.ils. Interviews with representative dele gates throughout the state justifies 'h^ statement that sentiment is more oonoerned with the proposed modifi- ealion of representative governinont than with any other matter likely to come before the convention. They prefer placing the liquor license oue.*^ Hon In r. secondary position. The initiative and refereDdum they assert. Is paramount to all issues.
