STATE CAPITOL Salem, Feb. 6. Spe
cinj )By an almost unanimous vote. Sen
ator Nottingham's S. B. US. for return to
th old system of having Sheriffs convey
insane patients to the Penitentiary, -was
indefinitely postponed. The bill was ex
tensively discussed, but no roUcall was
had. so that tha exact vote was not
kThendebate Included several sensational
Incidents, the most Important being Sen
ator Selling s direct contradiction of a
statement made by Senator Nottingham.
Nottingham Defends Bill.
In defense of his bill. Senator Notting
ham aald that he had supported the bill
which took away from the Sheriffs the
duty of conveying insane patients, hut
observation had convinced him that he
had made a mistake. He said that In
some Instances Insane women were kept
in county Jells 14 hours longer awaiting
the arrival of an attendant from the
Asylum when the patient could be taken
to the Asylum In the same time she must
wait In confinement.
Senator Smith, of Umatfjla. told how
he had introduced a bill In the Legisla
ture of 1903 requiring that patients be
transported by Asylum attendants and
how it had been defeated by a lobby of
1 Sheriffs. The bill was passed in the
next session, however, and had been
found not only a more economical method,
but more humane. He hoped never to
see the state return to the old system
of transportation by Sheriffs.
Senators Cole and Smith, of Marion,
both physicians, favored the bill for the
reason that It was highly Important that
a patient be taken to the Asylum as
quickly as possible and not be kept wait
ing in a steel cell in some distant county
Selling Settles Its Fat.
Senator Selling plunged a knife into the
vitals of the Nottingham bill. He said
he favored the present system not only
upon the grounds of humanity, but of
economy. He asserted that this bill was
in the interests of the Sheriffs, for it
provides a per diem for the Sheriffs at
the same time that he was drawing a
alary from the county.
"It doesn't provide any per diem for the
Sheriff." asserted Nottingham, Interrupt
ing Senator Selling. '
. "Read your bill and see tl it doesn't,"
"J. don't need to read it, I know it
doesn't," responded Nottingham.
"Then I'll read It," continued Selling,
and he read aloud: "The Sheriff shall
receive the expenses actually incurred
in conveying and guarding said persons
by the nearest route, together with the
per diem of 3 per day while so actually
This direct and complete contradiction
of Senator Nottingham created a pro
found sensation in the Senate. "I must
confess I did not know that was in the
bill," explained Nottingham.
"What Sheriff gave you that bill to in
troduce?" Inquired Senator C. J. Smith,
"No Sheriff gave It to me. I have not
even talked with a Sheriff upon the sub
ject," declared Nottingham.
The motion to postpone Indefinitely car
ried with only two negative votes.
"InTestigatlon" Will Be Made. (
The Senate this morning concurred in
a House resolution for the appointment
of Joint committees to make brief inves
tigations of various state institutions, but
without employing clerical assistance, and
only for the purpose of determining the
amount of appropriations needed. The
resolution provided for paying actual rail
road fare. The resolution was adopted by
a vote of 23"to &
Senator Johnson's road bill was a spe
cial order for today at 10 A. M.. but be
cause the amendments had . not been
printed the Senate made it a special order
for 2 P. M.. Monday.
Normal BUI Dead.
Senator Abraham's S. B. 71. to divide
the state into five normal school districts,
was indefinitely postponed today upon rec
ommendation of the ways and means com
mittee. Senator Abraham gave his ap
proval to the postponement, saying that
he Is satisfied that the committee Is striv
ing to solve the Normal School question.
This Will ?fot Please Lawyers.
Senator Hrdces' bill governing the pro
cedure in personal injury tlumao pases,
whre a contingent fee has tweii agreed
upon by the attorney for plaintiff, is a
measure that will not nnn Reneral favor
among attorneys. The hill requires that
In all damage suits whore r contingent
fee has been agreed upon, the jury shall
declare the amount to be paid to I he at
torney from the judgment, and If the ac
tion be tried by a judge without a jury,
the Judge shall declare the amount to be
tn paid. The bill also provides that In
all uch damage suits It shall bo the duty
of the court to Inquire of the attornA-
" and the plaintiff whether a contingent fe
has been agreed upon. Th bill also
makes It unlawful for an attorney to ol-lei-J
or receive a greater fee than that
awarded by tlie court or Jury, except
where the case goes to a higher court on
Livestock Bill's Provisions.
Senator Sinnoit's S. B. is, regulating
tlie shipment of livestock, makes It tha
duty of the railroad companies to trans
port livestock without unnecessary delay.
A dlay of more than three hours at a
railway station is d.-clared to be prima
facia unnecessary, as also Is taking more
than one hour of time for every 1.1 miles
of tiie distance from the starting point to
the lestlnation. The presumption that
the delay was unnecessary may be over
come by evidence, hut the'question Is de
clared to be one for the Jury to determine.
The hill excepts delays caused by un
avoidable accident or by quarantine pro
ceedings. KedlstrWtJng Is Proposed.
v Senator Coffey and a number of other
Senators will on Monday frame a con
stitutional amendment providing for re
distrktlng the state into Senatorial and
Representative districts after the Fed
eral census of lf'10. It Is understood that
the measure will come In the form of an
amendment to the proportional represen
tation section of the constitution and in
such shape as to wipe out the propor
tional representation feature.

in the Senate today by a vote of 16 to 10.
three absent and one not voting. Sen
ator Kay said that as a courtesy to Sen
ator Mullt. who could not be present, he
had paired, but that, if voting, he would
vote "aye." The vote would have been
17 to 11. with Kay and Mulit voting, and
quite likely Scholfield and Cole, who
were absent, would have voted with the
17 if present.
Senator Selling, who introduced the
bill, said at the outset that he knew it
could not pass the Senate, but he de
sired to explain it. This he did at
some length, asserting that this was one
of the fairest bills that had been intro
duced in this Legislature, for It proposed
to give eiiect to every himj
election of members of the Legislature.
He said that under the provisions of his
bill each voter would mark his ballot
for one candidate, and that surplus or
unused votes for one candidate would be
transferred to the next highest candidate
on the same ticket, and the unused votes
in one district transferred to the candl-date-at-large,
so that in the end each
party would be assured of representation
according to its voting strength, the
highest candidates of each party being
elected to the Legislature.
Senator Albee said that he had been
uncertain about the bill, but the more he
studied It the better he thought of it,
and he hoped that, though the bill could
not pass, the members would study It so
that they would understand it the next
time It was presented.
Addresses were made in favor of the
bill by Barrett. Hedges and Bailey.

The bill also provides that elections
so petitioned for shall not be held before
November, 1910. and that "no election
shall thereafter be held on the same sub
ject for two years. There is one pro

that when a county has been carried for
prohibition no local option election shall
be held in any precinct of that county
until prohibition has been defeated in
the same district at a subsequent
Penalty for Tax Officials.
On the same subject. Representative
Munkers, of Linn, has offered a bill
which provides a penalty of from 150 to
$500 for all officers who fail to post ac
cording to law notices of all local option
elections that may hereafter be held.
Recent local option elections In some of
the' counties In the state have been de

posted properly by the Sheriff. Under the
present law no penalty is provided for
this delinquency on the part of officials.

4000 FOR PITER
Bean's Flat Salary Bill Is
REFERRED TO COMMITTEE
Measure Xot to Take Effect Cntil
January, 1911 Dunlway Passes
Lie to Mahone on Floor
of the House.
STATE CAPITOL, Salem. Feb. 5.
(Special.) If the State Printer is placed
on a flat salary by the 1909 Legislature,
the new order of things will not go into
effect until the expiration of State
Printer Dnuiway'B term, January, 1911.
Furthermore, the salary of that official
will be J4000, instead of J2500, as pro
posed in Representative Bean's original
blIt is impossible to predict what other
amendments may be made to the bill
now before the House before it is enact
ed, if it ever does beoome a law, for
the House today had considered only a
few sections of the measure when it was
referred to a joint committee consisting
of the House committees on Judiciary
revision of laws and printing for further
amendment and with Instructions to re
port the same back to the House at 10
A. M. Tuesday.
When Bean's bill came up for consid
eration of the House in committee of the
whole this morning, Campbell asked that
it be referred to the Attorney-General
for an opinion as to its constitutionality.
To this Bean and McCue, leaders in the
fight against the State Printer, demurred
and demanded that the bill be consid
ered without further delay. Bean ur.-jed
that no question could exist as to the
constitutionality of the attempt to place
this officer on a flat salary, calling at
tention to the fact that the State Printer
was the only state officer that depended
on fees for his compensation.
Profits Too Big, Says Bean.
Campbell finally withdrew his mo
tion to refer tho bill for a legal
opinion, but before he did so Bean, in
discusKlng the merits 6f the bill, de
clared that the State Printer was mak
ing between $13,000 to $20,000 per an
num xut of the office. As proof of the
assertion he referred to the appropria
tion for this department, showing that
the amount provided by the state had
increased from 5u.000 in 1901 to $60,000
for' the year 1907, while there was
pending before the ways and Means
committee a deficiency claim amount
ing to afcout $30,000 for last year. It
was because of these facts, said Bean,
that the interests of the people de
manded reformation in that office.
When Campbell had withdrawn his
motion, the House proceeded to consid
er the blir, section by section in com
mittee of the whole, and it was then
that the Clackamas County man re
newed his charge that the bill was not
constitutional for the reason that one
oif the members of the proposed state
printing board was the Chief Justice of
the Supreme Court, who Is prohibited
under the constitution from holding
anything but a judicial office. This
objection was promptly met by the
friends of the bill, who proposed an
amendment substituting .State Superin
tendent of Public Instruction for )the
Duntvray Passes Lie.
Some member of the House offered
amendments of a minor character to
every section of the bill as It was read,
until Speaker McArthur, who had relin
quished the chair temporally, de
manded that the debate should end and
the bill be referred. He was successful
In a motion to dissolve the committee
and refer the bill to the joint commit

to thejexpressed wishes of the members
of the House as disclosed In the debate.
In the meantime the bill had been
amended In another important particu
lar by increasing the salary of the
Printer from $2500, proposed in the
original draft, to $4000 per annum.
During the noon intermission State
Printer Dunlway on the floor of the
House gave the He to Representative
Mahone, who had asserted that Repre

Dunlway, had an interest in the busi
