f Is to Meet the Linn County Court
. in Albany Is to Report at
February Term What
Albany Papers Say
on the Subject.
The Benton .county special com
mittee, appointed to investigate the
conditions surrounding the big
steel bridge at Albany, and to "as
certain, what is wanted of Benton
county with reference thereto, be
gins its work today. The com
mittee is ER Bryson, Johnson
Porter and Lon Hawley, Mr Port-
ter and Mr Bryson are to be in Al
bany this morning, and though
nothing has been heard from Mr
Hawley, it is supposed that he will
be in attendance,
As yet, the committee has made
no plan of its proceedings and will
go to Albany depending upon the
Linn county court to set forth its
purposes and desires of those who
want Benton to become' interested
in the bridge, and then direct in
vestigations in accordance there'
TWitn. ine members ol tne com-
mittee are thoroughly alive to the
importance of their mission, and
their report is sure to be exhaust
ive and reliable. It will be made
to the Benton county court at the
February term. -
r Albany Democrat: An enthusi
astic bridge meeting was - held
Monday Dight at Pairmount
3rarge hall across the Willamette
attended by most of the men of
Cloverdale, Rousing "speeches
. were made, showing a unanimous
spirit to get the toll off the bridge
in some way, either by. the legis
lature placing the bridge back on
the city, or by the counties taking
charge of it. They will work on
both plans, having a committee at
Salem and committees to cooler
with the two county courts. $140
was raised in a few minutes to
push the work of toll extermin
ation. The address of the com-

This meeting would undoubted-

met together directly, without any

would be in a position to - handle
the matter more expeditiously.
However, the two courts are to
"meet together in February to dis

they will decide to take the bridge
jointly as that is the only solution
-of the problem.

balem, Jan. 14. Ine message
read betore tne legislature by Gov
ernor Chambealain today, embod'
its the following. : . .;
"Gentlemen of the; Senate- and
House of Representatives: I wouldJ
be recreant to my duty if I did not
in the very beginning of what
have to say, express to you, and
through you to the people of the
Etate, my high appreciation of the
great honor which has been con
ferred upon me in elect-iDg me chief
executive. When a convention of
my party put me in nomination for
this exalted place, it was with one
voice and without solicitation on
my part. I feel and know that I
am indebted for my election to that
generous spirit of political iodepend
eeca which has characterized the
people of this etate from the earliest
pioneer times, and fully realize that
it was not becauee of any superior
merit in me. Under such circum
stances I enter upon the perform
ance of the high - truat that has
been imposed upon me with a deep
er sense of the great responsibilities
that devolve upon me, with a great
er fear that I may not be able to
meet tbe -expecttJos sf those who
have bo honored vac, end -with a
firmer determination to do all in
my humble power to best subserve
and protect the interests of the
state. I have no higher ambition
than to win the encomiums of my
fellow citizens.when my term shall
have expired, for duty faithfully
and honestly performed;
With absolute consciousness of
and faith in the rectitude of my
own intentions, keeping in view the
oath I have taken to support the
constitution and laws of the state,
I place my- trust in God and appeal
to him to direct and guide me , in
all that affects the welfare of - the
people of the whole state, irrespec
tive of race, religion or party.
While the mandate of the consti
tution requires the incoming ss well
as the outgoing of the executive to
embody in a message to you such
suggestions as may seem proper as
to legislation, in tbe very nature of
things the suggestions of the retir
ing executive deserve ana will re
ceive at youi hands more- attention
than any I can make. Many years'
service as a legislator and four years
as executive have not only famil
iarized him with the business af
fairs of the state, but peculiarly fit
him to point out for your consid
eration needed legislation to meet
existing conditions. Still, I cannot
but tase advantage ot tne oppor
tunity afforded me by the constitu
tion tofcall-td your attention ,, in a
general way. some- matters which
seem appropriate- to be considered
at this session of your body, and to
them-1 will referi" - - zi
" Concerning assessment f and tax
ation, the message points out that
the constitution: ia continually- vio:
lated in that the aopesement valua
tions ate notnniform; ' Itsays.tbat
real estat9 is made to bear the chief
burden of taxation while personal
property, and money largely escapes
taxation at all. It urges that ap
pointment of assessment commis
sion to prepare a law correcting tbe
evils complained of, the , report' to
be submitted to the next - legisla
ture for adoption or rejection. Un
der taxation also the message Bajs
that corporuiioDS, ' such ? as tele
graphs,, telephones and companies
of kindred character are not. taxed
in proportion to the protection they
receive under the laws, and that
provision should be made for; them
to pay a just proportion of the pub
lic expenses. -
- The message urges the enactment
of a law taxing : inheritances, " and
sayB that in the . various county
courts of the state, papers are con
stantly filed that disclose the urgent
heed of such a law. Large space is
devoted to the discussion of a . fel
low servant law, and much atten
tion is given to fixed salaries for
state officers. On the latter point;
the President reminds the -. leg
ielature that both paity platforms
declared for abolishment of the fee
system, and for fixed annual sala
ries for all officers of the state; and
declares that if platform utterances
mean iBnythins Ahat it a (the i&uij
uf ;t3ie ikaltetare x as&tttft ia Is'
provMiBg Jor mntih saSanaa., S
declares that the legislature has the
right to change salaries, even during
the incumbency of - officers, and
quotes many decisions , in support
of his contention. He closes his
reference to the matter "with an
earnest appeal for the legislatuie to
redeem its pledges to the people.
It is urged that a law, to take
effect on the expiration of the pres
ent encumbent's term of office be
enacted, reducing the fees of the
state printer, -and that a great deal
of the matter now printed in the
state printing office be lopped off in
the matter of economy. It is also
recommended that the "county
courts of the various counties be au
thsrized to have the books of coun
ty officials exported each year, and
that the governor be empowered
to employ an expert " to perform a
similar function on the books of
the various state officers, such .. ex
perting to tase place wnile the in
cumbents are still in. office.. It is
urged that in the matter of econo
my, convicts irom tne various coun
ties to be taken to the penitentiary
by the superintendent of the pent
tentiary "or his' assistants, and that
the conveyance of insane patients
to the insane asylum be by similar
employes at the asylum, the latt
course being particularly recom
mended in the interest, not only of
economy, but of humanity. It is
urged that circuit courts be given
larger scope in suspension of judge
ment in tbe case of criminals; con
victed between the ages of 16 and
21, and thaj all executions by
hanging take place within the walls
at the state penitentiary. An earn
est plea is made in the message for
the common school?, which are de
clared to be the chief educational
DuiwarK 01 tne , country, and it is
urged that the normal schools be
reduced to two. and that admission
to them be-restneted .
The message urges that the office
of health "officer at Astoria with
salary of $1,000 per year, is a Bine'
cure and useless because of the
quarantine arrangements of the fed-
ejfll government be abolished, and
that the salaries of health officers
at Coos. Bay, Siuslaw and Yaquina
Bay be redu ed to an amount co-
mensurate with the duties perform
ed. , : . : :
The enactment is urged "of a law"
providing for arbitration in case of
disagreement between capital and
abor, and the present 13 set forth
as the proper time for such enact
ment in view of the rapid industrial
development about to begin in the
state, when adoption of such meas
ures will not be resisted. The mes
sage declares belief in the right of
labor to organize, and "urges enact
ment of a law prohibiting child la
bor. Mr. Chamberlain saye emir
cent legal authority takes the
ground that no further legal steps
are necessary in order to perfect the
initiative and referendum, and that
equally eminent authority takes
the opposite view. He declares that
he belongs to the latter class,' and
that to make the law. perfect and
ready for effective operation such
further provisions as are neefssary
to make the law complete should
be adopted by the present assem
bly. - It is recommended that a law
be passed requiring the relatives of
insane or incorrigible persons, when
they are financially able to do so, to
bear a part of the - expenses of the
maintenance of such insane or in
corrigible persons in- the asylum or
reform schooL -; - r ..
" It is urged that stoves raade : at
the penitentiary by convict labor at
35 cents per day comes in competi
tion with free labor within the state
and -thatother provieion should be
made - for the convicts now employ
ed in the; penitentiary when the presv
ent contract: expires in 1905.- It
is urged that an open river to the
mouth of the Columbia , is impera
tive for the- best interests f - the
whole state, and that the legislative'
assembly should memorialize - con
gress to take steps to maintain such
an ODen waterway to the sea. The
governor urges that the canal and
locks at Oregon city should be pur
chased by; the federal government
and be thrown open to free naviga
tion, and that obstructions- in the
Columbia at The Dalles should be
