Oregon Senate Decides to
Have No Daily Calendar.
HAD PREVIOUSLY VOTED FOR IT
Move In Interest of Economy Bill to
Abolish Multnomah Judgeship
Hark of Respect to the
BABEM, Or., Jan. 22. The Senate made
e move In the dlreotlon of economy this
morning by rescinding' Its action of yes
terday In ordering the publication of a
dally calendar. Senator Kuykendall
moved to rescind, and stated in support
of his motion the last calendar published
by the Senate, in 1S33, cost $4516. Tha
House calendar of the same year cost
$5828. Kuykendall argued that while the
calendar may be a convenience. It is not
a necessity, and tho benefits that can
be derived do not -warrant the expense.
Brownell advocated publication, saying
that the calendar should be -ordered and
the cost left to the ways and means
cdmmlttee. Mulkey of Polk sided with
Kuykendall, and corrected the statement
that the ways and means committee could
regulate the cost. The printing, if done,
would be In accordance with rates estab
lished by law. The printers would be re
quired to add but little to the calendar
each day, but would charge for setting up
the whole calendar each day. For every
yard of type set, they would charge
for an acre. Daly favored the calendar
as a necessity to new members. The bal
lot resulted in rescinding the action in
ordering a calendar, and Immediately Wil
liamson moved that a committee of three
be appointed to prepare plans for a cheap
er calendar, and report recommendations.
Little Don Cameron, one of the Senate
pages, is proving to be the most wide
awake officer in that branch of the Legis
lature. His capacity for rushing business
is unexcelled. This forenoon Senator
Johnston arose to address the presiding
officer, and as he did so he made a gesturo
with a folded paper he held in. his hand
Quick as a flash the alert page darted
across the room, seized the paper and
carrlod it to the clerk, as he Is accus
tomed to do with bills Introduced. All
this was done before Senator Johnston
could recover himself to protest that his
paper was not a bllL
Representative Dresser today Introduced
two bills effecting, if they become laws,
the modes of conducting elections and the
holding of political conventions In the
futiire. One of the bills provides that can
didates for delegates to party conven
tions shall procure from the County Clerk
a blank petition, -which must be signed
"by not less than 5 per cent of the voters
of the precinct in which the aspirant re
sides. The vote cast at the preceding
election for the candidate receiving the
highest vote on the ticket supported by
the petitioners Is to be the basis of reach
ing the required number of signers to the
petition. These petitions are filed with the
County Clerk, whose duty It shall be to
make up a ticket from those whose names
are on the various petitions, and voted
in the same manner as provided by the
Australian ballot system. This bill fur
ther provides that at the next .general
election, judges and clerics to serve at
the succeeding general election shall also
be elected, thus taking the appointment
of these election ofiloers out of th hands
of the County Commissioners and County
Mr. Dresser's other bill provides for
the election of political committees.
Members of county committees are to be
chosen at the primary election, the coun
ty committees to elect the members to
represent them In the state and Congres
sional committees of tho various political
Representative Heltkemper has also in
troduced the bill known as the Lockwood
primary oleotion bill.
Smith of Marlon today introduced a
bill having for its object the transferring
of money received as a state tax upon
Insurance companies from the school Into
the general fund. This insurance tax
amounts to $90,000 annually, and Mr.
Smith claims that the school fund Is in
no need of it, while, if it could be put
into the general fund, great relief would
be afforded taxpayers In the state.
Representative "Watson, at request of
the Taxpajers' League, has introduced a
bill, which, if it becomes a law, peremp
torily dispenses -with the further services
of Judge Cleland. now presiding over a
department of the fourth judicial district
The bill Is amendatory of the existing
law which provides for two additional
Judges of the Circuit Court In Multnomah
Countv. In doing away with one Judge,
it provides that Judge George, of Depart
ment 4, be transferred to Department 3,
and that Judges Frazer and Sears remain
undisturbed In Departments 1 and 2. An
emergency Is claimed to exist, owing to
a desire to secure retrenchment of ex
penses in Multnomah County, and the
bill, if passed in Its present form, is to
become a law "after its passage."
The bill for appropriating JS000 for com
pletion of the Volunteers' monument fund
bears the names of Senator Hunt and
Senator Mays, as joint introducers. It Is
their purpose to urge speedy action, and
they are very hopeful that they will have
no great trouble getting the bill through.
Senator Marsters, of Douglas, has intro
duced a gfees earnings tax bill, covering
express, telephone and telegraph com
panies. Its chief provision is in full as
Section 1. That each and every express,
telephone and telegraph company doing
business within this state shall, on or
before the 18th day of January. 1902, and
annually thereafter, on or before the
10th day of January of each year, through
Its superintendent, or chief officer, or
authorized agent, file with the Secretary
of State a report, under oath, showing
the amount of charges, freights, and tar
iffs within this state, pld to, rocelved or
collected by such companies on account
of moneys, goods, and merchandise car
ried messages transmitted, and use of
wires for communication, within the State
of Oregon, during the year endiilg Decem
ber 31 next preceding, and such Vxpress,
telegraph and telephone companies shall,
at the time of filing the required report,
pay to the Treasurer of the State of Ore
gon 2 per cent of the gross receipts, as
shown by their respective reports, and
the receipts of the State Treasurer shall
be evidence of the due payment of said
taxes, provided, that this act, or any
portion of it, shall not be construed to
prohibit, or In any way Interfere with, the
leying or collecting of state, county or
municipal taxes upon the real and per
sonal property of said companies.
Senator Marsters has been giving careful
attention to the subject of regulation of
express, telephone and telegraph com
panies, and he thinks that the proposed
measure is workable and necessary. It'
Is in part a copy of the Texas law.
Dr. Smith, Senator for Multnomah, has
Introduced a. bill for the compulsory edu
cation of deaf mutes. It requires that
every parent or guardian, or other person
having a child afflicted with deafness,
shall be required to send such child to

SALEM, Qr., Jan. 22. This morning's
proceedings in the House were opened
with prayer by Re.v. Mr. Barr, after
which the greater portion of the session
was devoted to secopd reading and the
introduction of new bills. There teems
to be no let-up to the presentation of
bills. When this particular order of
business is reached each day the mem
bers unload what bills they hae, and
then assiduously get down to the work
of preparing more in order to be ready
for the onslaught when the next oppor

a bill to amend the charter of Dallas,
Polk County, and then sought to push

came manifest that there was a slum
bering opposition to that method and a
determination on the part; of many of
the members to keep the machinery of
the House running In regular order.
Eddy of Tillamook took the lead in
this opposition. He hoped no member
would consider his action a personal dis
courtesy In opposing the motion to sus
pend the Tules. Every member, he said,
has one 6r more bills he would like to
expedite on the calendar, but, with a I
continual suspension or rules ana tne
necessary roll calls, little real progress
could be made.
Mr. Hawkins explained to the House
the necessity of pushing the bill to final
passage as rapidly as possible, as im
provements were now under way in Dal
las that could not be completed until the
desired amendments to the charter were
It required a two-third vote to sus
pend the rules, and the absence of
six members made It possible for the
Representative of Polk County to se
cure tho desired cbnslderatlon, the vote
being 38 ayes, 16 nays, And Smith of
Marion, acting a3 temporary speaker, de
cided that under the rules of the House,
a two-third vote was to be estimated
from the members voting on the meas
ure under consideration.
Mr. Hawkins, thus securing first blood
In the fight, took advantage of the sit
uation, and after the second reading of
the bill, moved a further suspension of
the rules, and the reading of the bill
for the third time and placing it on
final passage. To this there was no op
position, and the bill, being read, was
passed by unanimous vote.
At the opening of the afternoon session
McCraken of Multnoman announced the
death of Queen Victoria and introduced
a resolution that, in respect to the mem
ory of the illustrious Queen, the House
adjourn until tomorrow morning. On
motion of Eddy Mr. McCraken accepted
an amendment to his resolution that the
speaker appoint a commltteo of three
to draft suitable resolutions expressing
the regret and sorrow of the people of
Oregon over the death of Queen Victoria,
and that a copy of the same be delivered
to James Laldlaw, of Portland, British
Consul, for transmission to his govern

adopted, and Messrs. Eddy, McCraken

sition to divide Yakima County by cutting
off six voting precincts in the eastern
end for a new county, to be called Riven
side, has been pretty thoroughly discussed
by the people of every precinct this week
A strong sentiment is manifested every
where against division, and it is jelear now
that should a bill be Introduced in the
Legislature for that purpose, as it is said
there will be, it will be met by remon
strances from every precinct but one.
Prosser people hope to make their town
the new county Tjeat, and the people of
that precinct are practically a unit In
demanding division. On the other hand,
the people of Sunnyslde pfeclnat, the larg-i
est In the proposed new county, have
signed a remonstrance to the last man.
The sentiment in the lour lower precincts
is divided, but is said to be against divis
ion. The haaviest taxpayers, as a rule,
outside of Prosser precinct, oppose, divis
ion, on the ground that it is unneces
sary, "and will Increase their taxes. The
Prosser people, have asserted that they
had a majority in the Legislature pledged
to support their bill, but advices here liv
dlcate that this claim is unwarranted.

The action of the Populists in demanding
so much is looked upon with alarm by the

partner, drew a revolver and fired at Ori
vlll, who staggered from the place and
lntov a cabin 200 yards distant. He was
found to 'have received a wound In tho
face or neck which ranged downward.
Last reports were to the effect that he
would probably die.

community. He Is generally known as a
bully, and it is understood the trouble
was due to bad- blood engendered because
of fancied injuries received by him at
the hands of Bartlett and his partner.
The Impression of those on the ground
was that Garrison had justification for ""
the shooting, and no arrests were made
immediately. The Constable from Sump
ter went to the scene. Bonanza Is 15. miles
