object the equal and Just Imposition of

Legislature to impose taxes was limited,
it is desirable that an opinion of the Attorney-General
on the mitter be secured.
The resolution asks that the Attorney
General, furnish at his earliest conven
ience a written opinion as to the power
of the Legislature respecting such taxa
tion. Flrnf nrhpthpp n nll .
commission can be clothed with any great
er power than the fixing of the valuation
of property for the purposes of assess
ments In regard to taxation.
.second, whether or not the prescribing
of a fixed valuation by a state commis
sion upon such corporate property to the
local authorities as a basis for the levy
for local revenue would be In violation
oi arucie u, section 12, or article 9, sec
tion 7 of the state constitution, and
whether such valuation could be made
mandatory upon the local assessment dis
tricts for local taxing purposes.
The resolution was adopted.

British Government Claims Ireland
Has More Votes Than Her Share.
NEW YORK. Feb7"9.-The government
has determined to reduce Ireland's repre
sentation in Parliament, says the Trib
une's London correspondent. The govern
ment's hands will be quite full this year
with Irish land and London education, and
it may be taken for granted that the re
distribution scheme is to be the chief
measure of 1901. On the basis of the pres
ent population England has 35 members
too few, Scotland three too many and Ire
land 33 too many. There are 103 Irish
seats In the Commons today, and It Is an
open secret that the government Intends
to reduce this number to S5 or less. The
Nationalists argue that, as the act of
union gave Ireland 100 members the Im
perial Parliament has no right to reduce
this representation. When the act passed
the population of Ireland was XOOOOOO
about half that of Great Britain. Today
the population is 4.434.000, or a little moro
than one-ninth that of Great Britain.

interest chargca on the cost of the new
structure and if possible to raise addition
al revenue. The bond fcwue of J400.000 to
build the bridge will cost the city approx
imately 118,030 annually In Interest. The
Bridge Commission Is to enter Into con
tract with the companies.
The charge of J1S.0OO on the City & Sub
urban Railway Company was regarded a:
pretty high by several members of the
Legislature. However, the franchise of
that company will end In about 12 years
and the grant of a new franch!e for
or 30 yeam the delegation thought would
The subject was long debated. Some
memters thought a flat rate of- 5 cents
per car was sufficient, but others overbore
them, arguing that the companies might
run tew, large cars, and thus cut down
the revenue to the city. The Important
purpose was to get the Interest charges
covered by revenue so that the new bridge
wouia se self sustaining.
A motion was carried for a special elec
tion on the question whether to Issue the
bonds, but this action was reminded on
account of the cost of a .modal election.
The committee which will draft the
amendments to the bill is composed of
Malarkey. Cobb and Sweek. Men who are
likely to be -appointed to the Bridge Com
mission are: w. L. Boise, R, L. Gllsan,
W. B. Ayer. Herman Wittenberg and N.
J. Blagen. The forenamcd committee
will report to the delegation Thursday
The delegation Id of one opinion: That
the bridge must be rebuilt, at most within
two or three years. The members arguo
that the renewal will be a good Invest
ment because of the high cast of main
tenance of the present structure, and be
cause or the large revenue that can be
derived from the new bridge. They will
see to It that all companies will have
equal opportunity to use the new bridge.
Port of Portland Commission.
The delegation has two bills before It
for the reorganization of the Port of Port
land. One of these was drawn by. Ellis
G. Hughes. It provides for a change In
the personnel ot the commission, the
members of which are to be elected by
me legislature. This board Is to fill
vacancies that may occur in its personnel
until the next Legislature. The second
bill was drafted by the State Federation
of Labor. By It the Legislature Is to elect
a new commission, whose nowers are to
be centralized In a responsible head. This
bill is up for third readinir. Tho other
Din Has not been introduced. Several
members of the delegation manifest a de
sire to appoint a new commission.
Bill for Comity Advertising-.
Consideration of the bill for county ad
vertising, introduced by Mr. Hodron. was
put off until Thursday. Mr. Malarkey
.gave notice that he would introduce a bill
to extend the Bancroft bonding net to
sidewalks. A letter from Samuel Connell
urged the need of a lanrcr ferrv at Alblna.
The Scllwood ferry was not discussed. A
petition from several members of the
Portland Council asked for a general law
whereby cities of over 10,000 people could
regulate and license gambllnc. The dele
gation resolved not to act on the petition.
Will Aot RecommentI Harris Bill.
The taxation committees of the two
houses tonight resolved to report without
recommendation the Harris bill for as
sessment and taxation of express, tele
graph, telephone, railroad, sleeping car,
refrigerator car. and oil comnanles. Thev
further resolved to recommend passage of
the Nottingham bill for a state tax com
mission to examine and report to the next
Legislature on matters of assessment and
taxation, and also passage of the Phelps
bill for a naw system of assessment and
collection of taxes.
The Harris bill follows the Ohio law.
and alms to tax Intangible assets. It
creates a state board of appraisers, who
are to assess such property. Tho total
assessment of each corporation Is to be
epportlored among: the counties In which
It does business, and the tax Is to be col
lected in the regular manner. A bill al
most similar was Introduced by Mr.
The committees considered for a number
of days a bill to tax the gross receipts
of corporations ltj per cent, but gave up
the matter on the opinion of the Attorney-
General that a bill along those lines would
be unconstitutional. The appraisers are
to be the Secretary of State, State Treas
urer and Attorney-General.
The .Nottingham bill for a tax commis
sion vests the appointment In the Gov
ernor. The Phelps bill provides for pay
ment or taxes before December 31 or in
two payments, the second before the first
Monday In April. Tax levies are to be
made before September. A rebate of 2 per
cent Is to be allowed on taxes paid before
December 31. Thirty days after delin
quency the penalty Is to be 5 per cent, and
interest Is to be charged at 12 per cent.
These bills are very likely to pass.

Southwestern Washington Teams Or.
Kanizcd for Coming- Season.
OLYMPIA. Wash.. Feb7 9. (SpeclaL)
The organization of the Southwest Wash
ington Baseball League was consum
mated in this city last evening, when rep
resentatives from the cities of Hoquiam.
Aberdeen. Centralia and Olympla met and
adopted a constitution and by-laws and
signed articles of agreement. Each city
put up a forfeit of C50 to guarantee that
the entire season would be finished.
Olympla was represented by C. W.
Grant, Hoquiam and Aberdeen by A. W.
Gregg, and Centitlla by Jesse Latshaw,
who will probably be elected by their re
spective clubs as members of the board
of directors of the league. These gentle
men have all had experience in baseball In
former years, and will endeavor to make
the league a success In every way. Each
club now has Its team 'organization well
under way, and the managers are hustling
to get the best material to fill up the
ranks. Olympla reports having all but
two ot Its team already signed, and Aber
deen and Hoquiam will have practically
the same teams as played In those cities
last year. Centralia has a number of
good men signed, and is In correspondence
with others. The league will be organized
along the same lines as the Pacific North
west League, i8 near as possible, and
the towns in the league will recognize the
contracts of the other members, so that
It will be impossible for one team to steal
the players, of another.

put In shape for work this year, although
the grounds at Natatorlum Park will be
used for Sunday games, as they have al
