But how does it happen that it has never be«n rejected by a popular vote; that it has been overwhe'mlngly adopted in eleven .American states after a ho. fight against It in every state, and it now before the i)eopie of eight statet . fbr endorsement at the election in November? How does it happen that in Ohio—President Taffs own state- after a straight fight in which the issue was squarely drawn upon the in! tiative and referendum, two-thirds oi the delegates to the present Ohio constitutional convention now sitting were pledged publicly in writing tc support the measure. The proirosi- Hon is now in the constitutions of states from Maine to California. Ii bad never been defeated by the people ,Yet It has l>een altackd viciousiy. 1. th«p«opIe are not for it—who does tht \oWt for them? Who makes those great big, fat majorities for it—lOUOOO Is^Ufomia for instance? 'Put that in your pipe and smoke It yoa spindle-shanked old reactionary. That-ought to hold you for a while.- Eimiiorla Gazette. 'what th(^ Register said was that the demand for the initiative and referendum did not originate with th< pe<}l>le. • Will the editor of the Gazette dcn.v that? He is generally credited with having written th'- last "llepublican" State platform. Hnd the people, bj resolutions at their m<et!nps, oi through the press, or in any othet Way presented a domand for the initiative and referendum plank whicli that platform contained? Did they show the least Interest in it after it was adopted? Did any of the Repuli- llcan campaigners dwell with emphasis on that plank i» their speeches, and did the people r<;si>oad with enthusiasm? The Gazette knows, and we hope it will be fair enough to say so, that the initiative aad rcterendum plank in that platform aro'ised about es much enthusiasm in Kansas as would be ere ated by a prohibition speech in a Missouri beer garden. The Gazette knows also that neither of the Republican candidates for Congress who have gone before the people since that lime—gone down before lUe^ people, to be entirely accurate—exploited the initiative in his campaign, and everybody knows they sorely ne^ed a popular "issue." If there is such a popular demand for their measure, why did not Mr. Guycr and Judge Martin appeal to it, and win? The Register said further in the article to which the Gazette refers that the initiative aa a iJolitical panacea was invented by offiee seekers •who were in need of an Issue and that the alleged sentiment in favor of it was manufactured just as greenback orators manufactured sentiment for free coinage in the Nineties. The Gazette probably will not deny that if a plebiscite could have l>een taken there would have been an overwhelming majority for greenbacks In 1874 and for free coina.i-e In ISflC. Will the Gazette Insist. ther>'fore, that wi ought to have hnd flnl nicr.ry and fref coinage? It \.\ n."' siirprlsins the Initiative hiis bi rn vdopt"! in iii.;iiy States We think ilie G ."Z<'itc Is I 'llataken \v saying it was carrivl in ejieli aiHtr after a hot light. In most of tht States, as wo have ilie record, it wen' by default. Hut in limes llki; these when the inuckwmps have persu-nd ed ne:irly everybody who is out of of flee th .1t ev-v-rybooy who is in ofllce it a crook and a conspirator against th' public weal. It Is not surprising thi- a plan so simple and plausible as th< Initiative should win many votes. I is of that peculiar brand of slates manship which comes up every one in a while, which requires no effort o! he mind, aither to present argumen for it or to comprehend it. It was tha leculiarily which made it so easy ti alk fiatism :ind won it so many con verts. "You want more money, don'i vou? Well, start the printing presses md you will get more money." Then vas your greenback speech. Any foo" ould make it and any fool could un- ".erstand it. But it took a mighty vise man to answer it, and it took ?• noderately wise man to comprehend he answer. The obvious argument or he silver question, the argument that vas right at the surface where every- iody could see it, was in favor o- ree coinage. It took digging to ge. It the truth and to uncover the fal- acy of "Coin's Financial School" anc imilar free coinage argiiments. Thi jig advantage the Democrats have al- vays had on the tariff question is hat the easy argniment, the surfac< irgument, the argument that anybod> •an make and anybody can under- .land, is in favor of free trade. It if •o easy to appeal to the natural pre udlce against the "protected pluto •rats," so easy to "prove" that fret rade will cheapen everylliing yoi vant to buy—and to say nofhing ai II about the effwt it may have oi he price of what you have to sell. And so with this matter of the in ;lative and referendum. TIic clieaj lid easy and obvious surface argu- •i?nt, the argument that anybody cat nake and that the wayfaring man cat •nderstand, is all in favor of it. Th' rgument against it lies deep down ir.j he foundation of things,—in the his or>', centuries old, of the nations tha' lave tried it and found that it woul( ot do; in the debates of a hundre. nd th\rty years ago when the sys em of government under which this .lailon lias since existed was devisee •nd the reasons given why that sys em and not another was adopted in the experience of legislative bodies nnd in the understanding of humar nature. It takes brains in the heat and knowledge in the brains to mak( the argument against the initiative ind it requires a modicum of actua ;lunking to understand the argument when it is made. The first thought of the Americar people undoubtedly was for green Vacks and free coinage; but theii sober second thought was against them. Th» first thought of the peo i;le may be for the initiatiVe, but th« sober second thought will be agains' it. Orer in Fort Scott the other day a Jnry tried a man for a felony and were unable to agree. After formally agreeing to disagree, one of them suggeM^ that a vote be taken to see how many of them really believed the man was guilty; ^-^nd the vote was unanimous against him. In explain,Ing their action after being discharged members of the jury said they refused to consent to a verdict of guilty because the penalty was too severe This dispatch appeared in the news columns of the Kansas City Star but up to this date we have not noticed on the editorial page of that paper any denunciation of "the people" for this miscarriage of justice, or any demand that the jury system be nmde subject to the recall. Now if the ae fendant had been a corporation and the jury a Federal judge, and the de fendant although clearly guilty had been acquitted because In the mind of the Judge the penalty was too severe,—but of course that would have been an entirely different proposition At least there would have been n different story to tell in the coliimns of the Star. "Do you know I am somewhat !enipt«d of late to follow every i>op- 'ilar fad and fancy that comes along ind thus gel Info the blessed company "it the truly good and progressive What's the use of having convictions? U seems to pay better and save wear 'nd ^ear to have only emotions."— 'i'rom a personal letter written by a nian who is Getting Tired. Hearst set the Jackson Day ban- luefters in Washington on fire the other niglit when he declared that I.a- Follette was a Democrat, that Taft •vas a reactionary, and that for the Insurgents to nominate Roo .sovelt would be to make the whole Progressive movement ridiculous. Even in the Seventh District the winning candidate made haste to say: This is not a Democratic victory." ICverybody recognizes the election of a Democrat in Kansas as merely the result of a temporary aberration, not as permanent alienation.

If Stubbs is honest about tlie poli- les he advocates, and believes in hem, we find no fault with him for his opinions. He has a right to them lut why does he not have the manhood to get out of the Republican party and join one that agrees with him, and quit playing hypocrite? Somebody must take the reins who can put cayenne pepper where it wil! do the most good on the balky hors" and put a kindly himd on the wild horse. It is not Stubbs, Brislow nor Hill Allen White.
