SENATE SETS A DAY
Will Take Up McBride Bill
EARLY DEATH IS CERTAIN
IS. Ckunces of Mennre' sncce " e
House Are so sum nn .--Politician
OLYMPIA. Wash.. Feb. 5. (Staff corre
spondence,) Both houses of the Washing
ton LeKislature tackled the railroad com-
- mitlnf hill today, and wnlle the lower
house sot no further with It than a com
mittee report, a day of reckoning was set
for It in the Senate, and It will come up
In the resular order of business in the
Houre when it is reached on the calendar.
The Senate committee met at 9:30 this
mornlnc ar.J devoted an hour to the read
ing of the till. No one seemed to recog
nize the humor of the situation, and that
the bill world pass Just as easily, or rather
be killed Just as quickly. If it were read
by the title or number only, so the mem
bers of the committee sat It out and then
made majority and minority reports.
The latter, recommending the passage of
the bill, was signed By Tolman of Spo
kane, Hailey of Whitman. Sharp of Kitti
tas and Iteser of Walla Walla.
The majority report, recomemndlnjr in
definite postponement, was signed by
Chairman Baker, of Klickitat; Hamilton
of Pierce, Rands of Clark. Hemrlch and
TotU of King. Clapp of Jeffcryon and
Sumner of Snonomlsh. When the report
of the committee was brought up in the
Senate Tolman moved that the bill be
made a special order for next Wednesday
Tc matter of carrying it over until next
week" had previously been agreed 'on. so
there was no objection. This course was
permitted by the antl-commlsslon men out
of courtesy to the minority members, and
the bill will receive the death thrust In
the Senate next Wednesday with becom
ing oratorical accompaniments.
The action of the Senate hastened mat
ters a little in the House, and Immediately-
after the close of the afternoon ses
sion Chairman Wilson. of the House rall
roads. committee, called his men together
and took up the bllL -In order to facili
tate matters, McNIcol of Pierce moved
that the bill be indefinitely postponed.
McNIcol had sir supporters with him on
bis motion, whllo there were eight oppos
ing It, the line-up being exactly as "pre
dicted In The Oregonlan when the commit
tee was appointed, utterly disproving the
charge that was made thct -the committee
had been "stacked" against the bill. The
majority reports recommending' that the
bill do pass, was signed by Chairman Wil
son, of Kittitas, Baasett of Adams. Butler
of Skagit, Haynes of Douglas, Howard of
Lincoln. Whitney of Spokane, Witter of
Whitman and Zenkner of Lewis .
"The minority report,' recommending In
definite postponement, was signed by
dark of King, Coate of Klickitat, Fergu
oon of Snonomlsh, Hastings of Jefferson,
McCoy of Skagit, McNIcol of Pierce and
Thompson of Kitsap 7.
The bill was not read by the House com
mittee, and the only suggestion of an
amendment came from Bassett of Adams,
who desired an amendment making the
appointees of the Governor subject to con
firmation by the Senate and House. Noth
ing was done In the matter, and the bill
will now 'take the same course as other
bills. Sentiment has changed somewhat
regarding the chances of the bill In the
House, now that it has been Jarred loose
from the Senatorial question, and while
the vote will be very close. It Is not lnv
probable that the antl-commlsslon men
will. win. The majority either way will
not be more than three or four, andj.at this
time tho McBride men seem to bave the
worst end of the flghc In the House. Two
week! ago it was considered practically
Impossible to beat the bill In the House,
but It Is now so near an even fight that
ewn expert "politicians hesitate to ven
ture a prediction as to the outcome..
The House railroad committee, after dis
posing of tho commission bill for the pres
ent, unanimously recommended the pass
age of tho Maloney rale bill reducing fares
on railroads and steamboats to S cents per
mile. This bill was aimed at the Spokane
Falls & Northern, which has been exact
ing 5 and 6 cents -per mile. Since the bill
was Introduced the road has voluntarily
reduced the rate to Zi cents, but It Is
almost a certainty that the bill will pans

OLYMPIA, Feb. 5. (SpecIaU-Soon
after the opening of the morning session
of the House, Lewis of King offered a
Jcint resolution protesting against arbi
tration of the Alaska boundary dispute.
The rules vrero "suspended and the resolu

Senate, where it was discussed until ad

of the Stale of Washington that the title of

Channel, although there Is but one channel In
the region of Southeastern Alaska which has
ever been named or known as the Portland
Channel, end other similar questions, which
cannot be the subject of a bona fide dispute.
The grounds of this protest are: That by the

Government grants to the proposed tribunal
power to cede without consideration valuable
territory and commercial ports, built up and
Inhabited by American citizens, which "are

If the proposed Joint commission should fall

! CORNER TRIED ANn MORRISON STS. 5
OLTMPIA. Wash.. Feb. 3. (Staff correspondence.) The Whitman County delegation to the Leclslature have certainly needed
broad shoulders at this session to enable them to suggest along under the load which their constituents bave piled on them.
When they were tangled, up In jtha Senatorial fight they' were continually bombarded with petitions, remonstrances, abuea and
praise, and as soon aa that Issue1 was disposed of they are confronted with a still more vexatious one. "Shall Whitman, the
largest county In the state, be divided?" is the question that haa brouxht more Whitman County men over the. mountains
than have ever congregated here before. -
The plan proposed Is to remove 21 townshlos from the north end of the county, and form the new county of Steptoe. From
the east about 17 townshlDs. Including fractions, are to form the county of Palouse. According to the opponents of division,
this division will leave Whitman with 2900 voters, and a valuation of (5.000.000; will give Steptoe County 2200 voters, and a
valuation of 34,063.000, , and Paiouae County 1800 voters, and property valued at S3.S00.000.
Both sides of the controversy are musing extravagant claims as to their relative' strenxth. For Instance, the opponents of
division claim to have signature of 1311 votea from the proposed Steptoe County, while those favoring division say they have
over 1100 signatures of voters favtrlng division. The men favoring division do not claim so many voters for Steptoe as are
claimed by the anti-dlrlslonlsts, the latter placing the number at 1700. If this is correct and there has been no mistake In
crusting the signatures. It Is apparent that several hundred men have signed both setltlons. The fight grows warmer as the
session sroceeds, and In "tha minds of the residents of the banner wheat county of Washington It Is a much more important
matter than the election of a United States Senator or the passage of a Railway Commission bill.

ernment. "This bill does not provide a tax
on the Intangible propertr of corporations.
but prescribes certain fees to De paia
when articles of Incorporation are filed
and an annual license tax for tho privi
lege of doing business In the state. The
fees nrc graduated, so that th tax will
not fall heavily upon small corporations
engaged In development enterprises, such

ing the approval of the Governorand will
be in force SO days after the Legislature

fee of $200.
Corporations already organized under
the laws of this state are not required to
pay the organization tax. but are subject
to the annual license tax, f oreign cor
porations, whether already doing business
in the' state or not, must file copies of
their nrtlcles of incorporation and pay a
filing fee of $30 and the annual license fee.
as stated above

ments cannot bring suit nor- file an an

$100 for the delinquency.
This bill was prepared by Representa
tive Eddy, with the aid of Secretary of
State Dunbar. Some amendments as to
the rates were made by the committee
on assessment and taxation, leaving them
as given herein. The bill met no oppo
sition in either House, and is apparently
satisfactory to the corporations most Interested.
