17 NEW CONSTITUTION TO TO COME BEFORE PEOPLE Oklahoma's Constitution Contains all the Advanced Ideas of Popular Government Now In Force In Oregon Partisan Bias Will Flgaae JUo-goly In the Election Indk-at-(Ions all Point to Its Adoption. Outer le, Sept 14. Tomorrow the people of Oklahoma and Indian Territory will vote to accept or reject the constitution which. If accepted, will admit these communities to the union as the state of Oklahoma. At the same time the people will vote for state officers, members of congress, legislative and county officers, and will also ballot on the question of prohibition.

The campaign now closed has been one of unusual Interest and has attracted the attention of the entire country. If Oklahoma statehood becomes an accomplished fact before the presidential election next year the result may have an Important bearing on that contest. This, combined with other circumstances, has caused the political leaders of both parties to take a keen Interest In the campaign leading up to the voting tomorrow. Doth parties have sent some of their best campaigns Into the twin territories, the list of republican speakers being headed by Secretary of War Taft and' that of the democrats by William J. Bryan.

People Arc Favorable to It. The Indications are that the constitution will be ratified by the people. Ever since Its final adoption by the constitutional convention the document has been a subject of much discussion, chiefly because of the political controversy over the question of Its approval by the president, whoBe approval and proclamation are neoessary before Oklahoma can be planed on the statehood roll. While partisan bias has caused considerable criticism of the constitution, It has many features which are likely to commend themselves to the public without distinction as to political creed. Among these are the provisions against child labor, those prohibiting the issuance of watered storks and making the books of (lu.ict-pul)llo corporations at nil times to Inspection, the employers' liability law, the eight-hour law for state, county and municipal work and the provisions for stringent regulation of railroads and other large corporations.

The constitution contains several features that embody the latest Ideas on the subject of government by the people namely, the Initiative and referendum and nomination of officers by direct primary Instead of thrqugh the party convention system. The Initiative and referendum clnuse An era of prosperity Is being enjoy-ed by our glorious republic. Disappointed and pessimistic people are trying to sot up a wall, of "hard times" coming and give vent to their discouraging views. After you become acquainted with the conditions of our elegant line of men's correct Clothing and Furnishings, you'll have nothing but words of praise and en. coiiragement concerning your future Instead of feeling that disappointments are In storo for yon.

Bond Brothers Pendleton's Leading Clothiers. was patterned after the Oregon law. Promises Prohibition. It the constitution goes through Oklahoma will be a prohibition state, the most stringent liquor law In existence, prohibiting not only the sale, but the Introduction of liquor Into the state, being provided for. The.

enabling act provided that Indlaa Territory must accept prohibition for 21 years. The convention provided that the whole state should vote on the question and there Is said to be little doubt that the terms of the enabling act will be made uniform over the state. The recent action of Georgia In prohibiting the sale of liquor to help the prohibition Issue In Oklahoma. The constitution Is about three times as long as the average document of Its kind. This unusual length la In part explained by the fact that about one-third of the document Is taken up with fixing county boundaries, another large section Is devoted to defining how the question of prohibition shall be submitted to the vote of the people, while another long section relates to the principle of the Initiative and referendum.

A Modern Constitution. Among the more or less Interesting provisions contained In the remainder of the document are the following: The legal rate of Interest Is fixed at 6 per cent and the contract rate at 10 per cent. A compulsory and separate school system Is established. Commissions are created on labor and arbitration, charities, insurance, railroads, agricultural, oil, gas and mines. The state seal adopted Is a combination of the present seal of Oklahoma and the seals of the nations of the five civilized tribes.

While the vote on the constitution Is naturally regarded as of most Importance, the contests for state officers and members of congress have been of a spirited character and are attracting much attention on the eve of the election. The democratic gubernatorial candidate, whose followers are confident will be elected tomorrow by a handsome plurality, is N. Haskell, a newspaper publisher of Muskogee. The republican standard bearer is Frank Franta, who is at present governor of Okluhoma Territory, under appointment of President Roosevelt.

Rowley, Portland. NO MORE ROPING CONTESTS. Humane Society of Wyoming Stops Favorite Frontier SKrt. The announcement that the Humane society has stopped further steer roping contests In Wyoming will be received with gratification by most of the citizens of that Ktnte and by the west In general, says the Denver Republican. A steer roping contest wns announced In Cheyenne for the latter part of September, but the society has Interferred and it Is announced that no more such contests will be permitted In the state.

This should have been done years The steer rop ing contest is relic of barbarism. ranking with the full fight In cruelty. The contests are held for the purpose of determining which cowboy can rope, throw and tie. a steer in the shortest time. The steers are thrown so hard that they are frightfully bruised, sometimes the whole side of an animal being rendered unfit for market purposes after It Is butchered, owing to the tremendous shock with which It is brought to the ground.

Horns are broken off, legs are broken, and the "sport" has absolutely nothing to recommend It, Inasmuch as there Is no need for cowboys to work In such great haste when on the roundup. Texas several years ago abolished steer roping contests, the cattlemen of that state being the ones who asked for the law and saw that It pass ed. No cattleman who believes In hu mane treatment of animals will be found defending a steer roping con test Bucking contests, In which horses are abused, are only a shade less cruel, and are fully as needless as the roping contests. Both these forms of entertainment belong to a dead period of western life, and live western communities will do well to abandon them for something better reflecting the spirit of the age. UNION PACIFIC HIRING WOMEN.

Woman Gets Important Tacancy In 1tio Passenger Department. Is woman the peer of her brother In business life? says an Omaha dispatch. Railroad officials say not. The fact remains, however, that woman Is gradunlly crowding out her brother from the railroad office. In fact, a $76 position which has been vacant In the passenger department of the Union Pacific headquar ters will probably be given to a wo man.

In all railroad headquarters there has been a reluctnnce to employ wo men stenographers, and ns a rule men have filled these positions, Horace Burt, the former general manager of the Union Pacific, was violently opposed to women and only two held positions under his regime. Since then the woman force has been Increased until now seven are employed at the. Union Pacific. The reason given for the employment of more women Is that male stenographers cannot be secured for the salaries offered, ranging from $50 to $75 a month.

WRITES OF PANAMA FORMER O. R. A N. ENGINEER NOW ON THE CANAL Enineer David Cooper Who Left La Grande Divbdon of the O. K.

N. Two Years Ago, Now Running a Locomotive on Canal Work Removing 30,000 Cubic Yards of Dirt Per Day on the Canal. The east Oregonian Is in receipt of a letter from Engineer David Cooper, formerly of the La Grande division of the O. R. but for the past year on the Panama railroad helping dig the Panama canal.

He writes Interestingly of conditions In Panama and as his letter Is of general Interest, a part of It is published. He says: We are doing pretty work on the canal and although It Is the rainy season, yesterday we removed JO, 000 cubic yards of dirt which Is a pretty good day's work for the force employed. Everybody here seems to have the digging of the "big ditch" at heart. There Is real canal enthusiasm all through the Canal zone and it seems that the employes are determined to stay and fight It out As to the completion of the canal at any fixed time, guessing Is con sidered out of the question here. I am running a Belgian engine, which we call a "splckety" engine.

We have three classes of cars here: First, the Ledgerwood dump cars, like they have on the O. R. N. They are unloaded with a plow and a trainload consisting of about 17 cars and holding 20 yards each, is unloaded in about seven minutes. The second class are Western dump cars, which hold about 18 yards each and a train of these can be unloaded In about five minutes.

The third class Is the old French cars left here when the French com panies abandoned the canal. They are small and out of date and are not used except In emergency cases. I have been In the hospital for a few days, but the doctors certainly understand their business here. They know how to handle fever. The sanitary of the canal management must certainly be commended for the way it has cleaned up this country.

You scarcely ever see a mosquito now, when formerly it was a breeding ground for them. We have all the accommodations of a city flut. Our quarters are all new and clean and well kept It rains almost every afternoon but we work just the same. PENNSYLVANIA ANTHRACITE COAL $12.60 PER TON. OREGON LUMBER YARD.
