Washington Houses

Legislature Provides for Collection of
State -Liquor License and Takes
Transportation of the Insane
'From County Sheriff.
OLTMPIA. Wash II area 9. (Spe
cial.) The closing: hours of the ninth
Washington Legislaturft-were devoted
to a semi-social session, while House
and Senate -waited for the enrolling of
bills, that the measures passed might
be feigned by the presiding- officers in
open session.
The Senate passed a quiet evening,
and at times took recesses and repaired
to the' House chamber. In the House
tne doors were thrown open to visitors
and tne galleries were packed with
spectators. An organ was carried into
the chamber, and there -were; songs,
speeches, "josh" resolutions and all
manner of diversions to while away the
Early In the evening Speaker Megler
was called before the bar of the House
and was presented by Representative
Hare, on behalf of. the House, -with a
olld silver service of five pieces. The
Speaker responded felicitously to Ahe
presentation speecn.
In the Senate the- members had pur
chased a gold-headed cane and an Elk's
charm, which were presented to Lleu-ienant-Governor
Coon, by Senator
Two administration measures passed
the Legislature today. One, which was
suggested by the Governor in his mess
age, provides that liquor licenses shall
?jot be valid until there Is indorsed
"thereon a notation by the State Treas
urer that the 10- per cent of the licenser
required by the etate has been paid into
the State Treasury. The state has lost
many thousands of dollars by the in
ability of the Treasurer, with the means
at hand, to check up the licenses is
sued by cities and towns. It Is estimated
that the bill will increase the revenues
about $50,000 annually.
The other bill, which -was suggested
to the appropriations committee by
Governor Mead, and drawn by that
committee, gives to the State Board
of Control the custody of persons com
mitted to the penitentiary. Reform
School or Insane Asylums, from the
time of their commitment. The effect
of the bill Is to relieve the County
Sheriffs of the duty of escorting persons
to these Institutions, and under Its pro
visions deputies, wardens or other offl
cials "will be sent for the person com
i iltled. It is expected that the bill will
tut In two the transportation expenses
borne by the .state in sending persons
to these institutions.
The following have been appointed

Bill by Van de Vanter Is Advanced
on Calendar and Passed.
OLTMPIA, Wash., March 9.-(SpeciaL
The real work of the Legislature was
completed about 3 o'clock tills afternoon.
when the House -and Senate passed their
last bills and began the consideration of
only such measures as had passed both
houses, but had been amended by one or
the' other within the preceding few hours.
The House ceased to follow the regular
oraer or business promptly at. noon. In
accordance with a resolution passeUyes
terday that no bills would be acted on
aftor that hour. The Senate worked until
l o clock.
A suspension was secured of this rule
howe-cr, to enable each House to pick
out one or two Mils on the calendar. One
of these was a bill drawn by Senator Van
de Vanter, who. It was announced, was
lying at death's door, as the result of a
relapse. The bill bears the name of Ham
mer as the author, but It 'was Van dp
Vanter's bill, and the House consented to
advance It on the calendar and passed it.
The bill is of importance to Skagit and
bnonomisn counties, ana enables drain
age districts to extend their boundaries.
Goods Delivered to Lumbermen.
Prior to noon the friends of the railway
commi5slon made good on the last two
of the lumbermen's bills that were In the
contract by the terms of which the rall
.way commission bill passed. To reach
them It was necessary to advance the
bills, on the calendar, but this was ac
complished, the commission men and lum
bermen voting together.
Both are Senate bills. One requires rail
way companies to weigh cars loaded with
lumber at a Junction or some other point
within this state. It Is asserted that the
long haul across the Continent results, in
-xalny weather particularly, in adding to
the weight of the lumber or shingle cargo,
while the trip through the mountains adds
gravel and rocks to the load. The bill
also requires the -eompanlcs to weigh the
cars separately and at a standstill. The
other bill requires companies to weigh
the side and end stakes used in holding
the lumber cargo to the fiat cars as car
weight, and not cargo weight
A fight against both these bills was
waged by Houston and defended by Fal
coner. The bills were passed.
Appropriations for State Offices.
The appropriation bills for the main
tenance of the state offices and depart
ments and the higher educational Insti
tutions wero passed without amendment,
as heretofore printed. They carry SLSS9.
W0. including all funds.
An appropriation of $10,000 for legislative.
acpenses. and another $10,000 for carpets,
furniture, etc.. furnished the legislative
halls And committee rooms at the bgin-
-nlBg of the season, were adopted. This
-brings -the total cost of the Ninth Legis
' lature to approximately $100,000. '
Tbe'oll-icspoctor bill was passed by-the
Senate after It had been amended by, in
creasing the salary of the inspector to
$1800, The House concurred in the amend
ment. '
Fair -Fund 'Is Swelled.
The transfer of 57365 from theSt
Louis Fair fund to the Lewis and Clark
Fair fund was accomplished, by the
passage of the Senate bill by the House
and the House passed the other bill re
quested by the Fair Commission, which
prohibits scalping -of railway tickets.
The bill appropriating $5000 for ex
penses of litigating the boundary dis
pute between Washington and" Oregon
A total of 24 House bills were passed
by the Senate. Among them is Black
more's bill changing the name of
School for Defective Youth to the State-1
School, for the' Deaf and Blind.
This change was made desirable by
the passage earlier in the session . of
a bill creating a new school for the
feeble-minded at Medical Lake, to
which the feeble-minded Inmates of the
"Vancouver school will be transferred.
Anti-Graft Bill Passed.
What is known as the anti-graft bill
-was among the House bills that passed
the Senate. It prohibits employes from
receiving presents for favors given or
work done, and is Intended to do away
with the increasing practice of making
gifts to purchasing agents by those
from whom articles or goods may be
purchased. It includes within its pro
visions public officers and their em
ployes. A bill passed today establishing a
fish hatchery on the east bank of the
Lewis River, a tributary of the Colum
bia. A new game law creating the office
of Deputy Game Warden, prohibiting
the hunting of waterfowl on the Co
lumbia River in certain counties and
making other regulations, a synopsis
of which has been printed, passed the
Regulation of Nursery Business.
The Horticultural Society's bill., in
troduced in the House by Lee John
son, passed. It permits the Governor
to designate the location of the Horti
cultural Commissioner's office, provides
for the appointment of County Horti
cultural Commissioners and deputies;
licenses tree dealers and regulates In
a general way the nursery business and
care of orchards.
The McCoy bill, appropriating $12.-
000 for the purchase of 120 acres of
land to add to the farm of the Statu
Reform School at Chehalis, passed.
The Reld bill, providing for an excise
tax on express companies, was killed
by the Senate. The reason given for
the opposition was that the Railway
and Tax Commissions could handle the
Supreme Court Asked to Settle Ques
tion in Idaho.
BOISE. Idaho, March 3. (Special.)
An action was begun in the Supreme
Court this afternoon to test the consti
tutionality of the act abolishing Koot
enai County and creating the counties
of Lewis and Clark out of its territory.
Edwin McBee. of Rathdrum, presented
an application for a writ of mandate
against Edwin Doust. Sheriff of Koot
enai, and now Sheriff 6f Lewis County?
The petition is on behalf of Charles
A.y McDonald, Sheriff of Clark County.
It sets forth that he has made demand
on Doust for prisoners held for of
fenses committed in that portion of
Kootenai County now embraced In
Clark, and also for property belonging
to Clark County, -all of which has beon
refused by Doust. Ezra R. Whltla,
County Attorney of Clark County and
ex-Attorney of Kootenai County, Joins
McBee in signing the petition. The al
ternative writ was Issued returnable
on March 20 at Lewis ton, Ida"ho.
While Doust has qualified as Sheriff
of Lewis County, it Is understood he
wishes to have the matter settled. In
fact, all the parties in this action ap
pear to be antl-divlslonlsts, perfectly
-willing to have the act held unconstitu
tional. It Is therefore probable that
the -divlslonlsts will, come into the case
at some stage of the proceedings.
George H. Ross, Treasurer of old
Kootenai and now Treasurer of Lewis,
is understood to take the same stand as
Doust. and It is stated he will pursue
the same course -with respect to the
county funds. It will be set up by
Doust In his answer, among other
things, that the Legislature has no
power to remove a county seat, as. was
done in this case, and that it has no
power to abolish a county and leave it
without government for any period of
time. Further, it will be alleged that
no provision has been made for the
county debt, though provision probably
has been made for its distribution.
There are several other points Involved,
It 1b understood.
Trial of Foster for the Murder of
His Mother-ln-Law Under Way.
BAKER 'CITY. Or.. March 9. The Fos
ter murder trial began In the Circuit
Court here this afternoon before Judge
Eakin- A jury was secured without much
trouble. The result of the autopsy,
which was hold Juet after the first trial
last Fall, when the Jury failed to agree,
was made public In the opening state
ment of 'District Attorney Lomax to the
Foster has insisted from tho first that
the shooting was the result of a mistake:
that he took his mother-in-law for a
burglar. He stated before the Coroner's
Jury that he shot her while she wan
standing In the kitchen In -the dark, and-
that he fired five shots, one to frighten
the supposed burglar, and the other four
took effect In the body of the deceased
The District Attorney stated that the
evidence would disclose that eight bullets
were fired Into the body, and that the
course of the bullets was such that they
could not have been fired while the body
was standing erect, but, on the contrary.
the evidenco would tend to show that thr
bullets wore fired at the prostrate form
of the deceased. The Inference to tx
drawn Is that the state will try to show
that she was shot while she was In bed.
The statement of Senator Rand, for the
defense, was to the effect that they
would establish beyond the reason of a
doubt that the killing was the Tesult of
miBtaken identity.
Protective Association Organized.
PENDLETON. Or.. March 9. (Spe
claL) The business moo of the city to

Among the matters discussed at to

Referendum Petition Circulated
in Capita! City.
Hint That Kuykehdall Had a Per
sonal Interest in Drain Normal
Schoof When He Left Chair
to Support on Floor.
SALEM. Or.. March 9. fSpeclal.) Ref
erendum petitions demanding that the
$1,000,000 appropriation bill be submitted to
a vote of the people- were circulated in
Salem today, and, strange as it may
eeem, they received the signatures of
many citizens. Because . holding up the
appropriation bill will hurt Salem more
than any other "part of (he state it has
been thought that no petitions for the ref
erendum would be circulated here, and, it
circulated, that they -would receive few
This supposition was not well founded,
though it is etlU believed that the referen
dum movement will have less encourage
ment here than in other parts of the
Those who are signing the petitions here
are chiefly men who have been advo
cates of retrenchment in public expendi
tures and reduction of taxes. Men who
took a prominent part in the citizens'
movement in Salem a few years ago and
forced a reduction of expenses until the
city lived within its income are aiding
the referendum petitions- on the appropri
ation bills. They are not opponents of
the four-normal-school system alone, but
believe the Legislature was extravagant
in many ways and that the disapproval of
the people should be shown.
These men object to the log-rolling
method of passing appropriation bills, by
which the Legislature made up omnibus
bills which it was thought the Governor
would veto and the people would not vote
Men who favor the referendum listen
to the statement that holding up the ap
propriation bill will cost $100,000 In pay-
mont of interest and increased cost of sup
plies, and reply that "It will be worth all
it costs. The Legislature must be taught
some time that this way of doing bus!
ness won't go, and It won't cost any
more to do it now than some other year."
While the initiative method of settling
the Normal School question moots with
approval among men best Informed upon
state affairs, the leaders in the referen
don? movement refuse to see in that a
reason why they should deelst in their
effort to defeat the omnibus appropria
tion bill. The fact that tne menus, or
the Normal Schools express themrclvfe&J
as favorable to the Initiative plan only
serves to make the referendum leaders
more determined, for they do not believe
the friends of the Normals would help
the Initiative movement If It were
President Kuykendall, of the State Sen
ate, and Speaker Mills, of the House, are
coming In for a large part of the criti
cism in the discussion over the referen
dum. It is asserted that when Senator
Haines' bill to abolish the Drain Normal
was under consideration In - the Senate,
President Kuykendall left the chair and
took the floor to defeat the bllL It Is
said that in the- discussion he asserted
that he had no personal interest in the
matter except such as arose from the
fact that he lived at Drain many years,
began the practice of his profession at
that place and knew every hill and tree
and stump in that vicinity.
Now it is charged that President Kuy
kendall had a further personal interest.
since he has been for many years a mem
ber of the board of regents of the Drain
Normal and has a daughter on tho pay
roll at that institution.
Complaint is made against Speaker Mills
on account of a refusal to recognise Rep
resentative Smith, of Josephine, who de
sired to speak In opposition to raising
the appropriations for the normal schools.
Before the bill passed the House, in the
first instance, the proposed appropria
tlons were cut down about $20,000. In
the Senate the figures were put back to
the amounts the ways and means com
mlttee recommended. When the bill went
back to the House for concurrence in the
Senate amendments. Smith wanted to op
pose concurrence, but was not recognized
In response to his demand, his written
protest against the refusal to recognize
him was entered In the House Journal. -It
Is now alleged that if the raise in the
appropriations had been discussed the
House would have refused to concur.
There have been reforms in the manner
ofjlrawing appropriation bllla in recent
years, and tho present agitation Is pretty
certain to bring about further reforms,
regardless of whether the referendum
petitions shall be filed. A few years ago
it was the practice to make all the ap
propriations in one bill. At the last two
sessions the appropriations were separated
into three bills, and at this session seven
bills were prepared. Since the people
have secured the referendum power and
manifest a willingness to use It, it is
quite certain that no more omnibus ap
propriation bills will be passed.

Ready to Rid State .of Burden of Ex
tra NormaP Schools.
OREGON CITT. Or.. March 9. (Spe
cial.) Interviewed on Senator Haines
plan for a special session of the State
Legislature, members of the Clackamas
County delegation expressed them-
elves as follows:
Senator G. C Brownell I voted
against the appropriation bill, as I
thought the appropriations were alto
gether too heavy for a state having a
population ot less than 500,000. While
would be in favor of an extra session
and be willing to attend without pay or
mileage, still it might be a good Idea,
if it were not for the expense, to let the
people use the referendum and sit down
once tor an on the extravagant appro
priations that are made every
year. Many of these are absolutely
unnecessary, unjust and an outrage on
the taxpaying public. I think the Gov
ernor is right on this whole subject.
and it is Just these kind ot blunder
and actions that makes it possible and
entirely probable that George C Cham
berlain will be re-elected Governor ot
the state, as a Democrat.
Representative C. G. Huntley I will
gladly serve without pay at a special
session of the State Legislature for the
purpose of enacting separate bills for
the Normal Schools and for other state
Representative Frank Jagger I did
what I could to adjust these Normal
School appropriation at the regular

that the Legislature will cut down tho

Would First Have Assurance That
Some -Normals Will Be Eliminated.'
M'MINNVILLE, Or., March 8. (Special.)
The Legislators of Yamhill County ap
prove of the plan of Senator Haines
for an extra session of tho Legislature
to settle the Normal School appropriation
trouble. Senator G". S. Wright gives his
hearty approval as he has considered and
suggested the same solution to several
of the Legislators. The Yamhill mem
bers worked against the unnecessary ap
propriations and are desirous of adjusting
the matter in the best possible way.
Senator Wright said:
"I am heartily in favor of holding an
extra session to settle this appropriation
trouble and will serve without pay pro
vided that the majority of the members
of the House and Senate will agree to
abolish all but one or two Normal Schools,
and vote for actual running expenses of
state institutions. I worked against the
bill when it came up in the Senate and
believe some of the appropriations unjust.
Some of the general appropriations for
the state institution aro Just and should
be allowed, but some of them I consider
unjust, and I would not favor an extra
session If all the appropriations were
voted for; that would but make a. bad
matter worse."
Representative F. H. Caldwell stated
that he would be willing to serve at an
extra session without pay provided that
all normals but one be cut out and no
appropriations mado for other than actual
running expenses of the state institutions.
He seems very favorable to the plan.
Umatilla Senators Would Save Money
for the State.
RENDLETON. Or., March 9. (Special.)
Concerning Senator Haines' scheme for
an extra session ot the Legislature, Sen
ator C. J. Smith tonight said that he was
in favor of the plan under certain con
dltions. He believes that something ought
to be done to relieve the Normal School
situation and that the cheapest and mos
practical thing- was to call an extra sea
sion and enact separate bills for the
schools. He believes that the Legisla
tors should be paid for the extra work.
but tha even if It cost tho state $7000
It would ne Detter tnan to pay out a large
amount of interest upon money borrowed
to operate necessary state institutions.
Senator W. M. Pierce Is also In favor
ot an extra session In so far as the pur
pose will be to provide means to conduct
tho Normal Schools by regular appropria
Cornett of Linn Will Serve Without
Expense to State.
ALBANY. Or., March 9. (Special)
Representative Frank v. cornett, ot
Linn, is inclined to favor Senator
Haines' proposal for a special session
of the Legislature. He said that he
believed that a session would cost the
state much less than a referendum vote
on the appropriations bill and would
also accomplish more.
"Personally, I favor the session." ho
said, "and will be willing to serve
without pay or mileage.
Senator Miller Believes In Referen
dum, Not Extra Session.
LEBANON, Or.. March 3. (Special.)
Senator M. A. Miller, of Linn County.
gave his views on the calling of an extra
session of the Oregon Legislature as fol
"Permit me to say that I am opposed.
The regular session opposed every pro
posal toward dropping one or more
of the Normal Schools from the list
of assisted enterprises, or any steps to
ward economy, but was extravagant in
the extreme. The State University, the
Agricultural College, the four Normal
Schools and Salem formed a combination
and through the ways and means com
mlttee presented the omnibus bill which
was passed and to which the people make
such serious oojecuon.
"Had It not been for the Governor this
bill would have been passed with an
emergency clause attached and would. If
they had bad their desires fulfilled, been
a law today. Therefore. I am in favor
of referendum to teach them a much
leeded lesson" and one that future Legls
latcrs will not forget. It may be that
some -of. the umbers of the Legislature,
like Paul of old. have experienced a
sudden conversion and now see the. error
of their ways, and would like to have an
opportunity to square themselves before
the people, but they should have tnougnt
of this at the regular session."
Is Appropriation Measure a Bill or
a Law?
EUGENE. Or.. March 3. (Special.)
On the proposal of Senator Haines, -as
publlshcdIh The Orcgonlan, tho mem
bers from this county were interviewed
this evening with the exception of Mr.
Edwards, who could not be reached.
Senator Booth said:
"I am not in favor of it. If they want
to bring the matter up to the voters,
let them take tho initiative and bring
it up at the next general election. It
could be done at that time without
extra expense to tho state. 'I am not
infavor of an extra session at alL"
Senator Kuykendall expressed him
self as follows:
"The proposal for a special session
does not grow upon me as I think over
it. There is doubt in my mind as to
our power to amend or repeal the bill
to which objection Is raised. It has
passed out of the hands ot the Legisla
ture and that body- has adjourned, but
it has not yet become a law. Can we
amend It as a law or can we recall it
as & bill and reconsider it? I think
we are liable to get into a legal tangle.
"I have not changed my mind as to
the bill. It is good and ought to stand
as it is. I do not say that I would not
consent to its division to savo money
to our state. I will not .bind myself as
to my action if a session Is called fur
ther than I am bound by my oath as a
Senator and my duty as a member to do
the very best thing according to the
light I may have.
"If called, I would favor tho Legisla
ture submitting bills to abolish each ot
the Normal Schools, so that the people
could definitely settle that question and
put an end to this strife. I would nave
the vote on them at the next regular
election, so as to give the present furore
time to subside, and to give the people
time to study the question."
Representative Griffin said he would
be willing to go back on a call of tho
Legislature for two or three days, and
the question of pay was no consideration.
Ho says:
"I am willing to do anything reason
able to relieve the present situation and
think the proposal as made by Senator
Haines in The Oregonlan is very reasona
ble. I do not believe in having all our
state Institutions suffer for the next year
and a half by calling the referendum be
cause some are displeased with the
Normal School appropriation. I think It
13 well for each institution to stand on
its own bottom anyway.
Representative Bingham when seen
"Certainly I would be willing to respond
to a call for an extra session without
expense to the state. I believe It would
be well for the people to call the Initia
tive on such appropriations, including the
Normal Schools, as might seem advisable,
and do not approve the calling of the
referendum. Such action would be a
great expense to the state, and I believe
it would be beaten in the end, but at the
same time I am not In favor of crippling
ail the state institutions because the
people are displeased with some parts of
tne general appropriation bllL
I think it would be perfectly proper
to pass separate bills for these appropria
tions, ana am willing, perfectly willing.
to see sucn divisions as may bo proper.

help the matter out. In fact, I am
anxious to do what I can to help tho
state institutions out of the threatened

Representative Burns: "The time to
have straightened out this difficulty was
when the Legislature was In regular
session. Everybody knows that the Nor

burden on the people, and an effort was
made in the House to cut down the
appropriation for them. The majority
in both houses had ample notice that
the people at large did not favor sup
porting those Institutions and they should
have taken heed, but they did not. Now
let the responsibility remain where it
belongs. I do hot see the advisability of
summoning an extra session to right a

for an extra, session. He said tonight
"X am against a special session and

Normal Schools are state institutions- just
as much as the asylum and penitentiary.

Senator Crolsan has not fully deter

Crolsan was opposed to making appro
priations for four Nornial Schools an3
tried to keep these items out of the ap
propriation bill for the Asylum and Peni

bill as It passed rather than leave the
necessary Institutions without funds.
"If a special session can be held for a
day or two and a bill be passed providing
for the maintenance of the Asylum, Peni
tentiary, etc., and leaving the Normal
Schools to stand on their merits In

taken up, I think I would favor It, said
Senator Crolsan. "I do not like to have

Items of Appropriation Bill Can Be
Segregated That People May Vote.
CORVALI4B, Or., March 9. (Special.)
A movement to reconvene the Legis
laturo for action on the appropriation
bill Is afoot, and Senator Avery, of this
city, ban been asked If he would at
tend and serve at such an extra session
without remuneration or mileage. The
invitation came from Senator Haines,
of Washington County, and Senator
Avery's reply was in the affirmative.
He said today:
'Tt Is apparent- that the referendum
is to be invoked on the appropriation
bill. The people are not satisfied with
tne action or tne legislature witn rei
erence to tho Normal Schools. It would
be an easy matter for a Quorum of the I
Legislature to meet and so segregate
the items ot the appropriation bill that
any desired items could be brought
within the application of the referen
dum without affecting the others.
It is probable that enough members
of the Legislature, would respond to
a proclamation of the Governor calling
for an extra session, and that under the
circumstances they would be willing to
serve without remuneration. I think
it would be a good thing to do. and
have so informed those who are pro
moting the plan."

Governor Chamberlain, however, takes
the view that if the Legislature will meet
without expense to the state and pass
laws which will prevent the state insti

of funds, it will be for the best Interests
of the state to call a special session,
though he does not say that he will call

by letting the people vote upon the bill

beer (which is the ordinary dose) there
are about two hundred, minims of alco

contains twenty times as much, alcohol
as one dose of Ayer a Earsaparilla. But
let us carry this analysis a little fsrtier:
You would have to drink about half a

much, alcohol as is lound tn an ordinary
''schooner' of beer. The Sarsaparilla
would cost the man nearly half a dollar,
while the beer would cost him only five
