.'. Commoner .t- no ?v xV o B ir glon of important questions to a popular vote. For instance, a constitution Is considered a much more important matter than a single statute. The statuto is adopted by a legislative body; the con stitution is usually adopted by the people them selves. City charters usually provide that tho council can decide minor matters, but that it must submit important propositions, like the voting of bGnds, to the people at a general or cpecial election. Some advocates of the initiative and referen dum go to the extreme of declaring representative government a failure. This is an unfair statement of the proposition. Representative government is not a failure, but it has not given Us a perfection. Improvement is always possible, and we should be willing to accept any amendment that will better our government. It was the opinion of the demo cratic national convention that the application of the referendum principle, as far as it was prac ticable, would improve the...
