Chamberlain Hopes to Cut Off
Money Supply,.
Chief Executive Says These Schools
Cannot SubslBt on Warrants as
Can Other Institutions
Named in Bill.
SALEM. Feb. 16. (Special. "I'll veto
that 51,000.000 appropriation bill sure.'.' de
clared Governor Chamberlain tonight
The blirprovides money for the penal,
reformatory and charitable institutions
at Salem, the normal schools, the State
"University and the Agricultural College.
There is no doubt, whatever that the
Governor means what he Eays.
The bill has lain in the Senate three
days and will be passed tomorrow after
noon. Republicans have held it hack,
thinking that the Governor was trying to
run a bluff and that he would not dare
to veto the measure after adjournment,
because that would throw on him the
responslbllty of loading up the state with
large warrant indebtedness for mainten
ance of the Institutions provided for in
the bill. For this reason the bill will not
be passed until near tho last hour of tho
session, and the Legislature will leave It
behind for him to act on afterward.
His Kxcellency denounces the coupling
of normal schools with other state in
stitutions, and asserts that they should
be provided for in a separate bill, not
alone so that he may veto them if he
chooses, but also that the people may call
a referendum on them.
Leading Republicans say that the Gov
ernor will be digging a political grave for
himself by vetoing, but his advisors aver
that he can face tho people in that issue.
Tonight ho said that the Interest on war
rants would cost less than the sums ap
propriated tor normal schools and the
State University and the Agricultural
College. He believed $700,000 would carry
Tho necessary institutions two years,
whereas the bill appropriates $1,012,000.
"The normal schools are objects of the
elate's charity," said the Governor, "and
cart receive from the state only such
money as is appropriated for them, and
cannot demand subsistence on the credit
f the state."

Carefully-Planned Trick Is Carried
Out in Joint Assembly, Despite
the Protests of Independent"
Senators to Kuykendall.
SALEM, Or., Feb. 16.-tSiecial.) By a
trick secretly planned and so swiftly ex
ecuted that opponents of the Multnomah j
"machine" had no time to catch their
breath, much less their wits, J. C. Ains
worth was elected to the Port of Portland
Commission today, in Joint assembly of
the two houses, to succeed E. W. Spen
cer, whose influence with several mem
bers of the House won enough votes last
Tuesday to sustain the Governor's veto
on Representative Bailey's bill to oust
Spencer and Thomas.
The trick was so secretly planned that
the anti-machine faction was taken com
pletely unawares and President Kuyken
dall put it through by squelching Sen
ator Nottingham, who tried vainly to
raise his voice in protest and by refusing
to put Senator Pierce's motion to ad
journ. When the Assembly began, the roll
was not called, owing to the hasto
of 'President Kuykendall; therefore tho
question has been raised as to whether
the Journal can show a quorum to have
been present.
President Kuykendall and Chief Clerk
Moorhead say that the journal will show
a quorum. Moorhead remarked this af
ternoon that two or three joint assem
blies have been held la his recollection
where no roll was called.
The assembly was called under the pre
tense that the Legislature was to carry
out its time-honored custom of electing a
boat-puller for Astoria, an officer who
has been drawing 5G00 a year for minis
tering to health and peace officers by
carrying them over the water to vessels
In the harbor for the purpose of enforc
ing quarantine regultaions and serving
various papers. The Job of the health
officer is to be abolished 90 days after
adjournment of the Legislature by a bill
of Senator Miller's, but the boat-puller's
job will not be molested.
James Keating was elected to the place
on motion of Senator Tuttle, seconded
by Representative Laws.
After tho election o Keating, Sena
tor Smith jumped to his foet with a
motion to adjourn and was seconded
by Nottingham, but the chair Ignored
the motion and recognized Bailey, who
nominated Ainsworth to till tho va-
cancj- on tne commission. This "was
done without any announcement from
the chair that that was the next order
of business. No other nominations
were made, for tho assembly was so
dazed that it hardly realized what was
going on.
Bailey moved that the nominations
be closed and that the chief clerk cast
the ballot of the Assembly fcr Ains
worth. Kuykendall put tho question,
but before the vote had been sounded
Nottingham was on his feet,
"Is there any vacancy?" he asked.
"If there is, this is the first I have
hoard of it."
Kuykendall ruled that there was n
vacancy and again started to put the
"This is a dirty, mean, underhanded.
trick: ' broke in Nottingham.
"The Senator is out of order." i
torted the chair.
"This is taking snap judgment,"
shouted Nottingham.
"Tho Senator Is out of order," re
peated liuykendall, peremptorily and
severely. "The Senator will take his
Nottingham was quelled and Sena
tor Smith again moved to adjourn, a
motion which Nottingham seconded.
but the chair Ignored Smith again and
put tho question to a vo?2. The ayes
and noes replied in .about equal vol
ume, and Kuykendall declared Ains
worth elected and dissolved the As
sembly with a bang of his gavel.
Governor Chamberlain cays AinsV
worth's election is satisfactory to him
and that he Is of the opinion that the
election Is entirely legal, also that the
roll-call was not essential to the legal
ity of the procedure..
Attorney-General Crawford says the
presumption of law Is that a quorum
was present, and that that presumption
would obtain until the contrary was
Trap Was Well Covered.
Thomas, against whom tho Multnomah
organization Is especially bitter, has not
been disturbed. Spencer has been at Sa
lem several days guarding against any
possible coup, but was completely out
witted. Since last Tuesday morning,
when the veto on the bill putting him oft
the commission was sustained In the
House, he has been full of glee, but the
joy Is now In the other camp, where the
"machine" braves of Multnomah County
ave displaying his scalp with great Jubi
lation. The trick was well planned between
leaders of the Senate and House, and
nobody outside of the select few knew
anything about It. When the noon hour
arrived In the Senate, President Kuyken
dall brought his gavel down with a loud
whack, announcing that the time had
arrived for going Into joint assembly, but
he did not reveal what tho assembly was
for, not even that it was called to elect
tho Astoria boatman.
When the "honorable" Senators filed Into
the House chamber wonder was written
on their countenances and. on the faces
of the Representatives also. Speaker
Mills yielded the gavel to President Kuy
kendall and forthwith the secret game
began to unfold.
In order to lose no time Kuykendall
went straight to business, without even
Instructing the reading clerk to call the
What the Law Says.
The law ordains that vacancies In the
commission "shall be filled by the remain
ing members' by Election until the next
session of the Legislative Assembly of the
State of Oregon, when said vacancy so
created shall be filled by election by the
said Legislative Assembly."
"Said vacancy" is alleged to have been
caused by failure of Spencer to attend the
meetings of the board for CO consecutive
days, which, according, to tho law, of
Itself removes an incumbent from tho
board. Spencer was elected by the re
maining members to All the vacancy.

Railroad Investigators Denied Money.
SALEM, Or., Feb. 15. (Special.) The
House tonight voted down Jayne's reso
lution providing that the committee to in
vestigate the manner in which thousands
of acres of valuable timber land In Linn
County are held by the Northern Pacific
Railway be allowed $1000 with which to
prosecute Its investigations. The com
mittee was created by Calender's resolu
tion and Jayne is a member, though Cav
ender is not.
Vawter declared that it was a case be
tween the Northern Pacific and the
United States- Government and not the
state government. Smith of Josephine
suggested that the matter be referred to

Producers of Less Than a Thousand
a Year Pay a Tax of but
Ten Dollars.
SALEM, Or., Feb. IS. (Special.) The
Bingham bill to exempt mining companies
from the provisions of the Eddy corpora
tion tax law passed the Senato tonight
with not a vote to spare. The purpose
of the bill Is to exempt from payment
of corporation tax till mining companies
not producing $100) a year. Corporations
thus exempted must pay 510 a year.
The Bingham bill was dissected at
length by Coe, Rand and Kuykendall, In
favor of amending the Eddy law, and
Booth. - Haines and Malarkey against.
For the bill It was argued that nine out of
ten mines do not pay and Investors sink
their money In the ground: that money
Invested in mines comes principally from
people residing outside the state and is
spent for labor and. materials, thus be
coming a part of the wealth of the state
and adding to the amount of taxable prop
erty. It was argued that the state makes
annual appropriation for experiments
with grasses nnd grains In Eastern Ore
i;on, and that this concession to the min
ing Industry will be In the naturo ot an
aid to experiments In mining.
Against the bill It was argued that there
should bo no discrimination, for there
are Industries of all kinds that do not
pay; that If a mining company which does
.not nay profit Is exempt, should be a
sawmill company. Senator Booth asserted
that saw mills paid out 520.000.000 In this
etate last year, practically all of It re
ceived from other states, but mlllmon
themselves lost money. They are not ask
ing to be exempted from payment of the
licenso tax.
Jt Is also asserted that men who are
actually mining are not asking for ex
emption, but favor is asked by men who
have organized wildcat companies and are
exploiting pockets of people In the East
who do not understand the situation.
Senator Haines emphasized the fact that
this Legislature has appropriated 52,000,000
and is now cutting off 540,000 of revenue
from corporations. The vote was:

A question having been raised as to the
legality of the method pursued In the
apportioning of tho current school fund
without the Legislature having first di
rectly appropriated the money for the
purpose, the Attorney-General has given
the State Treasurer an opinion in which
he holds that a direct appropriation Is
entirely unnecessary.

Amendment Defeated With Kay's
Plan for the Work.
SALEM, Or., Feb. IK. ((Special.) Thero
will be no amendment of the state census
law at thl3 session, notwithstanding the
recommendations of the Secretary ot
State, the Governor and the press of the
state. Unless the Secretary of Stato as
sumes responsibility and prepares blanks
other than those authorized by law, and
can induce tho County Assessors to us
them, the census of 1903 will be as incom
plete as heretofore, and not In harmnnv
with the plan of the Federal census taken
every ten years.
Failure to amend tho -census law. which
has been on the statute-books since 1SW.
without change, was due to the defeat of
Kay's bill placing the Labor Commis
sioner at the head of the census work and
making it his duty to prepare blanks, su
pervise the taking of the census and tabu-S
late the returns.
The bill also authorized the State La
bor Commissioner to make such arrange
ments as he caq with the Federal Census
Bureau, by which the Government would
pay a portion of the expense ot taking
the census, in view of the fact that it
would be taken In accordance with th
Federal plan. Tho defeat of the measure
was accomplished by the argument that
the new system will be needlessly expen
Three Multnomah Senators Declared
There Was a "Job" in It.
SALEM. Feb. 1C (Special.) Portland's
nark bonding bill failed to pass the Senate
tonight by a vote of 13 to 13. Malarkey
ind Sichel of Multnomah defended the
bill and were the only Senators from that
iounty who voted for it. Nottingham,
Hoilson and Coe fought the measure, de
claring It contained a "Job" put up by
somehody who desired to foist on the clty
grounds at cxtortionato prices.
Malarkey pointed out tliRt the bonding
plan would be submitted to fe electora
of the city next June, and Sichel said
that heavy taxpayers had gone on record
as approving the bill. The bill was In
troduced by Speaker Mills and was passed
by the House last week.
A raining bill by Smith of Josophlne to

The last of the Mining Buroau bills
was sent to tho graveyard today when

by Smith ot Josephine. Several other
bills of the same character have been

Senator Sichel's Indeterminate sentence
bill has passed both houses and will be
approved by tho Governor. The bill au
thorizes Circuit Courts to suspend the
execution of sentence during good be
havior. Suburban school districts in Multnomah
Counts are the beneficiaries of Malarkeys
S. B. 256. which has passed both houses.
The bill provides that whenever the
school census showa that the school pop
ulation has doubled in one year the num
ber ot children shall be reported to the
County Superintendent immediately, and
thereafter apportionments shall be made
upon the new enumeration.
The bill was framed for the benefit of
suburban districts, which are growing
very rapidly, and in which the number of
children becomes so great In one year
that tho school funds received are entire
ly inadequate. In general, the school
districts do not get the benefit of their
