SALEM, jOr.. Feb. 15. (Special.) Repre
sentative Linthicum landed a body-blow
on Kay of Marlon today and got some
revenge for the part Kay took In sus
taining the Governor's veto to the Port
of Portland bill.
"I don't believe in this constant 'but

Unthicum characterized Kay's motion to
cut out the proposed raise of 5500 in the
Falary to be paid the District Atto'rney
in Klamath and Lake Counties.
"I have tried to let other people's local
bills alone," continued the Multnomah
Ilepreseutativc. "but since others keep in
terfering, especially in Multnomah af
fairs. I am going to take a hand ray-self.
1 hear no complaint from the Representa
tives from the district affected, so I as
sume that the bill Is satisfactory o them,
and. If so, It should pass."
Kay responded that the salaries of Dis
trict Attorneys are paid out of the State
Treasury, so this is not merely a local
bill, but one In which he whole state Is
Nevertheless, the House took Linthi
cum'? view and voted down Kay's motion
to out out the amendment
Tho heavy hand of the House of Repre
sentatives fell upon the Haines bill for
tho relief of Louis Verhaag this after
npon, and the bill was defeated by a vote
of 52 to 6. The purpose of the measure
was to pay interest to Verhaag on money
paid to him by the state 14 years ago
for land to which he did not acquire title
because the land had not been surveyed.
The House defeated the bill because its
passage would establish a costly prece
dent in the payment of interest upon
claims against the state.
To grant an 'additional $200 a year to

The 'good roads movement received a
4ift from the Oregon Legislature today
by -the passage of Senator Miller's bill to
appropriate foOO for the payment of the
expenses of annual good roads conven

House. Smith of Josephine opposed it on
the ground that It is. bad policy for the
state to begin making appropriations of
this kind. Ja'gger of Clackamas also op-
posed It on the ground that no good will
be accomplished by it.
"We have the best roads in the state in
' Clackamas County," said Jagger. "and
we have never had a good roads conven-
' tion. Hot air will not build good roads."

Crolsan of Marlon said Sheriffs were
as humane in conducting insane to the

that tho bill would increase the pat

Proceeds From Sale of Public Prop
erty Must Be Paid Into Treasury.
SALEM. Or.. Feb. 15. (Special.) A
pernicious systom. which has been open
to -great abuse in the past was abolished
todayr when the Housp passed Carter's
Senate bill 214. requiring that whenever
state officers or stato employes sell pub
lic property they shall turn the proceeds
Into the general fund of the State
. At several state institutions, where
farms and gardens are kept and where
livestock iy produced, there are many
articles on hand "which cannot be con
sumed. It also frequently happens that
the property purchased for Institutions
becomes unsuicd for the purpose and
must be thrown away or sold.
In cases such as these It has been the
practice of heads of Institutions to sell
property and use the money to purchase
other property according to their own
wishes. This custom gives some officials
the absolute power to expend money to
the amount of several thousand dollars
In a year, without th claims being first
audited by the Secretary of State, as re
quired by the constitution.
In one instance it Is known that where
a state institution desired to expend
money contrary to law, and the Secretary
of State refused to draw a warrant for
the-money, the head of the institution
sold public property and used the money
to pay for the articles purchased unlaw
fully. Hereafter all money thus obtained
must be paid Into the Treasury and paid
out only upon warrants Issued upon ap
proved claims. The abuse thus cut off
has been growing for years.

Amendment Has Been Made So That

It Sees Fit.
SALEM. Or.. Feb. 15. (Special.) Port

approval or rejection. But for that pro

Appropriation for Indian Veterans.
SALEM. Feb. 13. (Special.) An ap
propriation of $45,000 for Indian war
veterans of 1855-G Is carried In Repre
sentative Blakley's bill, which passed
tho Senate this afternoon. The appro
priation Is intended to supplement that
made by the last Legislature of $100,
000, which was inadequate to pay tho
claims advanced.
The claims are to be paid only to the
volunteers themselves and in no case
to their widows or heirs, unless the
volunteers shall have died after filing
claims. The money is to be paid for
military services, for which full com
pensation was not made by the terri
torial government of Oregon.
Delinquent corporations which refuse or
fall to pay the corporation license tax
can now be dissolved by the proclamation
of the Governor, Malarkey's bill for that
purpose having passed both houses. The
purpose of the measure was to clear the
records of corporations which have gone
out of business.
