You Don’t Say…

“Back of the ineffectiveness of our legislative system is the indifference of the public.

“The Legislature continues ineffective for precisely the same reason that at the special election — at which measures of the greatest importance to the state were voted upon — out of a registration of approximately 1,250,000 only 260,000 voted.”

  — Franklin Hichborn, cover page of Story of the Session of the California Legislature of 1915
