6 THE MORNING 3KEGONIAN, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 190T. FREEMAN BILL IS PASSED BY HOUSE Measure Contemplates Revo cation of All Perpetual Franchises. ONE MEMBER VOTES NO Rodgers of Marlon Alone In His Opposition to Enactment Be lieves That Cities Already Have the Power Sought For. SALEM, Or., Feb. ?. (Special.) To re voke all perpetual rights, prlvtlejres and franchises in Oregon, Representative Freeman's Mil passed the House this morninR, with but one negative vote that of Rodgers of Marlon, who contended that cities have power to revoke franchises under their home-rule constitutional power, without calling upon the Legis lature. The Coffey bill, revoking the franchise of the Portland Gas Company, granted by the Legislature in 1S59 and 1874, went into the Senate this morning and this afternoon was" referred to the Multnomah delegation. The Freeman bill went to the Senate committee on revision of laws this afternoon, Eowerman chairman. "When the Freeman bill came up for passage at 10:30 o'clock 'on special order It was defended by Freeman, Northup, Chapln and Beverldge of Multnomah; Vawter of Jackson, Barrett of Washing ton, rye of Clackamas and Jackson of TiouKlas, and opposed by Rodgere of Mar lon and Perkins of Jackson. Freeman started out by saying that the Increasing value of perpetual franchises in the large cities, especially In iPortland, Is regarded by the publlo as a menace. The people demand compensation, he re marked, for the use of the streets by the possessors of such privilege. The grow ing value of all perpetual franchises, everywhere In the state, he Insisted, should be curtailed in the Interest of the public, by terminating the grants. The use of space underneath sidewalks by adjoining buildings, for cellars. Free man contended, was a franchse that ought to terminate, unless paying com pensation to the publlo for the use of publto property. Rodgerg Opposes the Bill. Rodgers responded that Portland had power to deal with all the franchises granted by the city, under the home-rule amendment to the state constitution, which restrained the Legislature from participating In local city legislation. The Coffey bill, passed last night, related only to grants made by the Legislature, ha said, and after dealing with them the Legislature should leave other franchise matters to the Cify of Portland. "I hope," said he, "that Portland will attend to Its own troubles, without em broiling the whole state. It Is wrong for us to say what every town In the state shall do with Its franchises, as we should do by passing the Freeman bill." Northup replied that it Is a well-settled principle of law that all franchises must come from the authority of the state, and that the lawmaking power of the state therefore can repeal them. The follow ing colloquy ensued: Rodgers Let me ask you a question, Northup Very well. Rodgers Yu nay the cities have granted many of the franchises that thto bill would revoke? Northup Yes. Rodgers The constitutional amendment (en acted last June) gives to cities authority over local legislation and franchises and withholds this authority from the Legislature. Northup responded that the state's power over franchises granted by cities has not been taken from the state in the Legislature. Application of the con stitutional amendment, he contended. Is till subject to the general laws of the state. A general law, he Insisted, could repeal all franchises, saying, "There's no doubt about Its constitutionality." Burden Is Now Unbearable. Beverldge declared that franchises granted 30 and 40 years ago, have grown to be a heavy tax on the people and a source of great profit to their pos sessors and that the people have a right to demand compensation and regulation of the grants. The necessary preliminary, he remarked, was revocation of existing perpetual franchises. Adverting to the gas franchises in Portland, repealed by the Coffey bill, he said that not one or two . perpetual franchises should be re pealed but all. "Were not the gas franchises granted by the state? asked Rodgers. Northup declared this made no differ ence as to the revoking power of the legislature. The lawmaking power of the state, he declared, had the right to revoke, whether the franchises were granted by the state or by cities. Perkins announced that he was In favor of revoking perpetual franchises, but that the Freeman bill should be longer considered. The bill was a step In the right direction, he said but he wanted those affected by It to be heard. He In sisted that the bill be considered the same way as any other Important bill by threshing It out in committee. Chapln Insisted that the Freeman bill be acted on at once. Chapln Demands Action. "This question Is not new," said he. "It was one of the chief planks In the campaign in Multnomah County and all of us from that county were elected on that plank as part of our platform." Dye wanted all perpetual franchises repealed, for the reason that he did not think one generation should mortgage its successors, by giving away perpetual prlveleges. "We ought to repeal all," he asserted. and start in anew." Jackson reviewed the question of whether a perpetual franchise Is a con tract between the city or state and the holders of the grant, or whether It is merely a permit, to be terminated at will by the granting power. "But," said he. "there Is a long line of court decisions, holding that perpetual franchises are unconstitutional. This bill Is a good measure and I shall vote fur It." r.odgers said that every city had power t dispose of the matter Itself. He moved that the bill be made special order for ednesday afternoon. Barrett of Washington opposed post ponement, also Beverldge and Freeman. The bill then passed. BLOCKS TIDE LAND GRABS House Defers Action on Farrell's "hand Island" Bill. SALEM, Or., Feb. 8.-(Speclal.1-Far-rell's bill (H. B. 78, substitute) relating to disposition by the state of accretions to tide lands was Interrupted when It came up for final passage this morning. On motion of Vawter it was laid on the table to be taken up and considered Joint ly with H. B. 3-4, by Connell. when that measure reaches third reading. Farrell's bill gives the owner of the land to which these accretions attach the prior right to acquire such additional lands as are thus formed for the same price as he paid for the original tract. Vawter called atten tion to the fact that this feature of the bill being considered la- quite different from that part of the bill by Connell, which was prepared by the State Land Board, and provides that land of the char acter covered in the Farrell bill shall be sold or leased by the state to the -highest bidder, provided that the sale should not be made of any such land for less than J5 an acre, and further that' no sale shall be made within ten years of the approval of the bill by the Governor. Mr. Vawter considered that there was a serious difference on this subject In the two bills that should. If possible, be rec onciled by the amendment of one or the other measure..- Farrell had no objection to the hills being considered jointly, and the motion of Vawter was agreed to. The Farrell bill is objected to because It Is in the interest of tide land grabbers, who seek lands by paying only a small part of their value, at the expense of the state. CHANGES IN NOTARY LAW.

This committee has held but one meeting, when it was addressed by a number of the advocates of new counties, but Chairman-Washburne says the committee will for the present hold back reports on any of these bills until the interested par ties on both sides of the controversies can be heard. Among such bills are those proposing the creation of Lewis. Jefferson and Ne smith Counties. The House committee on counties is also hopeful that the bill by Representative Knowles, and drafted by Attorney-General Crawford, can be satisfactorily amended so that the deter mination of these county division fights can be left to the people, who are direct ly Interested, and kept entirely out of the Legislature, this being the purpose of the measure. The Knowles bill is to be considered Jointly by committees on counties and judiciary. Senate Passes Many Bills. SALEM. Or.. Feb. 8. (Special.) Bills were passed by the Senate today as fol lows: P. B.

SALEM, Or., Feb. 8 (Special. )-At loggerheads over the best method of choosing the three members of the pro posed Railroad Commission, the House and the Senate committees on railroads have reported to their respective houses, each in its own fashion. The House com mittee recommends that the commission ers be appointed by a state board until July, 190s, when their successors, elected by the people, .shall take hold. The Sen ale committee recommends that the Gov ernor appoint; that two of his appointees hold until after the election In and that one be elected in June, 190S. The minority, two members, of the House committee, Chairman Coffey and Kdwards, will report the same as the Senate committee. The majority report of the House committee is signed by Jones of Polk, Holt of Linn, and King of Mal heur. The House has set Monday at 3 P. M. for consideration of the commission bill and the report of the committee, and tha Senate has set Thursday at 11 A. M. Ths split is the result of what may be termed too much Governor in the selection of the commission. Wednesday night all was serene and the two committees were in perfect harmony. Last night they split and the result promises to be a disagree ment between the two houses, impedi ment of the commission bill and either its death or a compromise to conform with the demands of the majority of the House committee. In the House a strong force has been organized against giving appointment to the Governor. Those who profess to have canvassed the situation say the Senate recommendations cannot be put through the House. Big Lumbermen Get Busy. When the two corrtmittees last Wednes day, after a long tight, agreed on letting the Governor appoint and suffering one of his appointees to hold over until 1910, the end of the contest seemed in sight and the two committees were expected to report to their respective houses the next day, but in the interval a lot of lumber men got busy, led by George M. Cornwall, editor of the Oregon Timberman; T. K. Campbell, of Cottage Grove, and W. T. Muir and J. N. Teal, of Portland, Mr. Teal being the author of the original draft of the bill, and pressed the committee Into allowing two of the Governor's ap pointees to hold until 1910. The pressure brought by these men and others per suaded the committees at their joint meeting Thursday into accepting this new arrangement, thereby going back on the agreement of the day before. The vote on the change was 6 ayes and three noes, as follows: Ayes Senators Wright, Bingham and Miller, Represent atives Coffey and Edwards. Noes Jones, King and Holt. Senator Bowerman was absent. This put Jones, Holt and King on the warpath, so to speak, and they came in this afternoon to the House with a re port embodying their original Ideas on the subject, namely, that the appoint ments .should be made by a state board until the next election, and that the successors of the board's nominees then should be elected. They had con tended for this from the first, but were weighed down by the predominance of the joint committee against them. Originally the committee appeared to favor this method of selection. But the pressure of shippers, led by Teal, Mirr, Cornwall and members of the Chamber of Commerce, changed this to appoint ment by the Governoor until the 1908 election, when the commissioners should be elected. Further pressure changed It to appointment by the Governor, with out election by the people. No Steps Formally Taken. None of these steps was formally taken, nor was there any official announcement of the sentiment of the joint committee. Yet, this was the general appearance of the opinion of the committees. But the other side was restive against putting the commission completely in the hands of the Governor. Jones, Holt and King got their Irish up, and In the Wednesday meeting' their Influence was felt to the extent that It was agreed to elect two of the commissioners in 1908 and one to hold until 1910, when the commission should become elective. Even to this, Jones, Holt and King agreed after a sharp debate. The lobby, however, got busy again with the two committees and the next day It was agreed by the committees that two of the Governor's appointees should hold until after the 1910 election. This woul put the commission in the Gov ernor's hands during the remainder of his term. The three dissatisfied members bolted the joint committee and today put in a majority report to the House to ac cord with their own ideas. The Senate committee adhered to the recomendatlons of the joint committee. Explanations by Senators. "Members of the Senate committee and of the House minority committee explain that when it was agreed on Wednesday to elect two commissioners in 1908, this was on the understanding that the Governor was to be given power of removal, so that there should be one responsible official for the do ings of the commission. This was af terward found impracticable, where upon several members stood for plac ing larger appointing power in the hands of the Governor. "There are many things In the bills as reported by the Senate committee." remarked Senator - Bingham tonight, "that are not Just as I would want them, but in matters of this kind men must give and take and accept what they get. I favored allowing the choosing of the members of the com mission permanently to the Governor, but I agree to what the committee has recommended. The bill Is not perfect, of course, as its operation will prove after enactment, but I think it will be a good corrective of the troubles of railroad transportation." Cnalrman Wright, of the Senate committee, believes the bill a good one as recommended by tha Senate com mittee. He has been a steady advo cate of the plan agreed to by the Senate and thinks it a fitting outcome of the movement to correct railroad abuses. An evening paper in Portland prints by mistake that he has advo cated appointment by a state board and that he had a conflict in commit tee with. Senator Bingham, who urged appointment by the Governor. Both Senators deny the story and say that none of tha debates in the committee marred the serenity of the sessions. At no time has right advocated board appointment- The House majority committee makes no other amendments to the Chapln bill, which comes from the Portland Chamber of Commerce, than to change the method of selecting the commissioners. The minority of the House committee will adopt the rec ommendations of the Senate commit tee, which change the method of se lecting the commissioners and widen the avenues for court review of the mandates of the commission, in the interest either of the shipper or the railroad. The salary of the commissioners is fixed at $1000 each, the Chapin bill In the House and the Bingham bill in the Senate are identical. JUGGLIXG QUICKLY REBUKED House Refuses to Refer Deschutes County Bill Arbitrarily. SALEM, Or., Feb. 8. (Special.) An attempt of Northup to secure with drawal from the special committee of House bill 347, creating the County of Deschutes, caused a tilt among the members of the House this morning. Northup asked that the bill be taken from the special committee and re ferred to the committee on irrigation. It was insinuated that the motion was intended to punish some members of the House. Such a course was de nounced as small, narrow and petty. Northup disclaimed that his motion was actuated by any such motive, but in the discussion that followed a great many of the members expressed- the belief that the Deschutes County bill had been sufficiently juggled, and if taken from the special committee at all, should be recommitted to the com mittee on counties, to which the bill was originally referred and from which it should never have been taken. Northup amended his motion, substU tuting committee on counties for irri gation committee, and the transfer of the bill was ordered. BAILEY YIELDS II POINT THE PEOPLE MUST AHPROVE CHANGES IN PRIMARY LAW. Statement No. 1 Will Remain in Present Form, at Least Until After Next General Election. SALEM, Or., Feb. 8 (Special.) Senator Eailey has yielded in his effort to amend the form of Statement Number One, and has decided to insert a clause providing that the amendment shall not be effective until referred to the people and approved by them. This change, if adopted by the Senate, will prevent the new form going into effect prior to the next general elec tion, hence the candidates for the Legis lature next elected will have to sign Statement Number One as it is now framed, or not at all. It is yet a question whether the Sen ate will pass the bill, even with this change, but the chances seem favorable. The two Bailey bills for the amendment of the direct primary law have been made a special order for Tuesday at 8 P. M. The Senate today passed Beach's bill authorizing County Courts to provide for the use of voting machines in cities. Sen ator Beach explained that where voting machines are used the trouble and con fusion of Incorrectly marked ballots Is avoided, the counting Is done as fast as the voting proceeds, and the compensa tion of the night shift of judges and clerks is saved. He figured that by the use of such machines in the populous precincts, Mt'ltnomah County could have ioOOO at each election. There was no op position to the bill. The Senate has made the bill for a new Carey act law a special order for 10 A. M. next Wednesday. The bill was pre pared by the State Engineer and the Assistant Attorney-General. To give a husband a life estate in half the real property of his deceased wife, the same as the wife has in the property of her deceased husband. Is the effect of Malarkey's Senate bill 143, which passed the Senate today. Representative Dye Is fathering a bill to give the husband and wife one-third part of the other's prop erty in fee. With only one or two dissenting votes, the Senate today passed Coke's bill for the appointment of two Supreme Court Commissioners, to aid the Supreme Judges in catching up with their work. The bill provides for the appointment of two commissioners by the Governor, with the consent of the Supreme Court. The commissioners are to serve two years and receive a salary of $4500 each, the same as the salary of the Judges. What the na ture of the work of the commissioners shall be is left to the Supreme Court. To extend to logging roads the privilege of securing a right of way to timber, similar to the right which a-farmer has to secure a road to his land surrounded by the land of others, is the purpose of Bingham's Senat bill 44, passed by the Senate today.

Oliver Gold smith's "Vicar of Wakefield" claims his attention for next Sunday's edition. Only Ade could make this popular story take on such a phase. Considerable space is given to a discussion of current topics by able writers. "The Beginning of Methodism in Oregon," "The Plea of Insanity as a Defense," "How Shall We Save the Salmon?'' are among the topics discussed.
