Central Law fnt Pacil to Make
Amendment Operative Before

Sa Crawford.
SALEM. Or.. Nov. SI. (Special)
i The State Tax. Commission Is at sea be
' :ui of what now mms to be a tax
muddle for the Legislature, following
adoption by the people of a ccnstltu
tt"nal amendment providing, a the
ballot title nyj, f.r the people of each
;ouotv to regulate taxation and ex
tmptlons wlt.iln the county, regardless
. of constitutional restrictions of state
itatu!-.
Tax Commissioners pay the provision

:"-.t the amendment shall become ope
rattve only undr a general law has
JevHopei a peculiar phase, which may
possibly result In numerous restric
tions on the Legislature. The Cnra
m I. Ion era wre not ready this after
noon to off.-r any decisive or final
ta:ements In regard t- the new
amendment. Inasmuch as they were la
bonne under the Impression for some
time tiiat it had been defeated and had
aol irtvea the matter much thought.
(olIowinK the election.
In communications which they had
received prior to the election from
leading tu authorities in the United
States, the amendment was practically
universally condemned, as It would
evidently throw the whole system of
taxation Into a chaotic state.
Must Lrgl!ature liefer?
one of the principal stumbling blocks
teems to be found In the question as
to Jut what extent It will restrict the
power of the Legtxlature. It Is prac
tically certain to the Commissioners,
from a cursory reading of the law. that
there ran be no general tax legislation
enacted by the comma- Legislature and
that there can be no system of taxa
tion established by the counties until
uch time as a general law may make
the amendment operative, and such
central law probably cannot be passed
until the election two years from now.
B.:t whether this amendment mill af
fect Ir sir la tion covering collection of
pedal revenues Is also a moot point.
Hecommendatlons will be submitted to
the Lesislaturo from various sources
asking- fr amendment of the Inheri
tance tax law. There will also prob
ably be legislation enacted concerning
:he office of Insurance Commissioner
ind various other departments throuuh
which special revenue Is derived. An
Investigation will be made to ascertain
vhether tl.e hands of the legislators
will be bound by the amendment to
the constitution or whether tha
amendment will have no effect relative
:o this class of legislation.
People Will He Vole.
"WMle I have rot had sufficient time
to make any searching Investigation
Into Just what the measure will
cover." stated Tax Commissioner Gallo
way today, "nevertheless It appears on
the face of It that t will restrict the
Legislature In amending any taxation
laws now In force or creating new
ones. 'Any measure of taxation' Is the
language of the amendment, and while
It may not have been meant to be so
f ar-reachtng. It appears to me that any
kind of a tax of any nature Imposed
In this state, must be Imposed purely
and simply by a vote of the people. The
. Legislature may Introduce and pass
laws relative to taxation, but they can
b of no force until after being voted
."uTon favorabty by the peopla at the
following general election.
"In a general way It Is probably safe
to say that tax legislation must remain
In just the form that It Is now until
such time as the people see fit to pass
a general law covering the subject."
General I -aw Is Xcextod.
Attorney-General Crawford Is also of'
the opinion that It will he necessary to
pass a general law to make the tax
amendment operative before the coun
ties or the people will have power to
regulate exemptions and other tax
measures.
"I have not examined Into the tax
amendment thoroughly." stated the Attorney-General,
"believing- It had failed
ef passage and Just started today to
look Into the question, hut I am of
the opinion at this time there must be
a general law passed before the amend
ment would be effective.
"Just how extensively this amend
ment will strike at the tax power of
the Legislature I am unable to state,
but I am of the opinion now that any
act which the Legislature may pass
coverlna; taxation In the future must
be referred to the people and passed by
them before It becomes effective."
The Attorney-General expresses him
self as practically assured that County
Commissioners now have no power to
make exemptions or establish any local
tax legislation, nor will they have un
til a general law la placed In effect,
and there seems to be some doubt as to
whether there can be any legislation
ef this nature unlets It comes entirely
from a vote of the people.

IX of the Oregon constitution, knoa-n

ceded that counties cannot place the
amendment In effect until taxation laws
shall be adopted under the Initiative by
the peop'e of each countv In 111. and

and other friends of the amendment,
characterise it as an experiment and hope
to demonstrate Its practicability In Mult
nomah County, other counties may drop
Into line alorg the same lines of demon
stration If the voters se fit. but It Is
the plsn of the promoter of the "man
agement of your own pocketbook Idea'" to
experiment In a few counties until the
plan Is worked out.
The new amendment deprives the Leg
islature ef making a law which shall de
tSere what- property may be assessed In
the state. That power la now vested In
the people of each county. The Legisla
ture may cause the stale to certify the
number of mills which shall be levied
for the support of the state government,
but at that point Its control ceases.
County Commissioners may decide how
much revenue is needed to run the coun
ty for which they are acting, but they
must collect the sum In such manner as
may be devised by the voters of a
county. Briefly, the new amendment re
peals the poll, or head tax. on citizens.
No scheme regulating; taxation or ex
emptions throughout the state can be
come a law until approved by the people.
The restrictions of the constitution are
removed as to prohibiting a county from
collecting taxes In any manner it may
see fit. It removes from the Supreme
Court the right to say that the people
have not the right to tax or exempt any
class of property.
The newtax law Is said to have been
originated by the Stnte Grange, and
after the Idea was whipped Into shape
at a meeting of the representative mem
bers of the People's Power League it
was adopted by labor organisations.
It operation Is proposed to be tested
by different methods of taxation In a
few selected counties, and from the
whole is expected to emerge a satlsfac-

CRITICISES COURT
Supreme Tribunal Decision on
Broadway Bridge Called
. Non-Judicial.
REHEARING IS ASKED
Attorney Cites Justice McBrlde's
Opinion as "Illogical," and Sajs
Bench Didn't Perform
DutyClosing Courteous.
SALEM, Or.. Nov. 21. (Special.)
AssalllnK the constitutionality of the
initiative and referendum, criticising
the Oregon Supreme Court for offering
reasoning In an opinion that "Is not at
all educating nor convincing and say
ing the case of Frank Klernan versus
the City of Portland Involves import
ant constitutional questions under tha
state and Federal constitutions. Attor
ney Ralph Dunlway today filed a peti
tion for rehearing on the Broadway
bridge bonds.
With tha petition he sent copies of
an address delivered by Frederick B.
Hoi man before the State Bar Associa
tion, In which Mr. Holman spoke of
the initiative and referendum. Mr.
Dunlway refers to this address in his
brief.
Referring; to references to the con
stitutional principles mentioned by
Justices McBrlde and King In their
opinions and mention made in the
brief of counsel, the petition for re
hearing says:
Logic Is Attacked.
The opinion of the Supreme Court of
Oregon is very decisive ot tnrse constitu
tional questions, but its reasoning thereon
Is not at all educating nor convincing. It
should be.
Therefore, appellant respectfully urges the
court to grsnt a reargumertt and rehearing
of this esse to the end that the court may be
(ulitrd by counsel In deciding these vital
constitutional questions, and that they may
be decided by the court in an opinion
whl b will be a landmark In our Jurispru
dence, and will show thst these vital consti
tutional questions have been fully considered
by the court, before being decided by the
court, and which opinion of the Supreme
Court of Oregon will settle these Important
constitutional questions, not only, tor this
esse, but for all cases.
Mr. Dunlway then goes on to point
out what he considers has been over
looked by the Supreme Court. He says:
Prohibition upon the power cf the Legis
lature should be stated In the opinion and
Its constitutionality determined.
Let It ever be kept in mind that this sp
pellsnt is contending that under the state
constitution of Oregon, and under the Con
stitution of the I'nited States of America,
the people of this state have no power to
deprive the Leglslsture of the sovereign
power to enact, amend or repeal any charier
or act of Incorporation, for any municipality,
city or town, and the attempt of the people
of this stat to do so by that constitutional
amendment Is beyond their power and is
void.
Let It ever b kept In mind that this ques
tion has never before been presented to the
Supreme v'ourt of Oregon, nor any other
court In these United tltates.
No Citations Made.
Appellant respectfully urges upon the Su
preme Court that for inch a revolutionary
constitutions! amendment to be upheld upon
the opinion of the Buprerae Court filed In
this cosa. without eny discussion of the
principles of constitutional law, without any
citation or autnonty, is simpiy i"r m, niok
vital, nsw and revolutionary questions to be
disposed of in the dark, without reasoning.
and without eiuciaaiion.
The Supreme Court of Oregon owes it to
Its members, to the people of this state, and
to th. neonle of the I'nited States, to write
a clear, accurate and full discussion and con
sideration of these Important and new con
stitutional questions, which have never be
fore coaie before a Supreme Court fof
decision, and which will henceforth come
before not only the supreme court oi tnis
late but the Sunrenie Courts of other
states, and the Supreme Court of the T'nlled
States for adjudication, and the tendency
abroad In our land to attempt to enact these
revolutionary constitutional provisions must
be met and decided. 0 There Is a duty upon
the Supreme Court of Oregon, and It has
not been fully performed. -

Home Treatment
Mrs. J. P. Christoffersen, of Dodge.
Center, Minn., where she has lived fot
thirty years, gives sufferers from rheuma
tism the benefit of her experience with Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, as follows:
"A few years ago I was severely afflict
ed with rheumatism which waa Drought
on by exposure to cold. The pains were
in my arms and legs. My right hand wae
crippled so that I could not use it and my
elbow was affected also. My shoulders
were so sore that I could hardly touch
them. The joints of my feet were so
swollen and painful that Tcould just hob
ble around. There was a numbness in
my hand and it seemed as though it was
dead. I could put it in hot water without
feeling it. I felt miserable all over. My
back ached continually. I could not rest
at night without taking drugs to deaden
the pain.
"I was treated by a doctor for a time
but could not see that his medicine help
ed me. My sister wrote me about Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills and I began rising
them after I had been sick for over a
year. I felt that tliey were helping me
after a short trial. The numbness gradu
ally left my hand and I "began to use it.
I conld see that my blood was in better
condition and I was able to get around
without effort. In a few weeks! was able
to do my housework again and have never
had the rheumatism since."
The tonic treatment with Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills by building up the blood
so that it can nourish and strengthen the
weakened system has made hundreds of
cures in the most severe disorders. This
record of cures should merit a trial for
the remedy which is guaranteed free from

As a second reason for asking re

he says the Supreme Court rendered an
opinion "most Illogical and non-judicial."
He declares the Port of Portland
Commission Is not a party to this suit

Further he says: Appellant sug

OREGON BIRD IS BEST

SAX FRANCISCO. Nov. 21. (Spe

and boxes, the Thanksgiving turkey
made his bow to the stalls and racks
of the San Francisco markets and
butcher shops today.
The great American bljd came all the
way from Oregon, the Northern fowl
this year, it l.i said by commission men,
exceeding the California brother In
quality.
Although the retailers assert that the
quality of the bird Is tp to standard
some of the wholesalers have been com
plaining. The reason Is said to be lack
of rain in the northern part of the
state.
Prices this year are about the same
as last. The householder will pay 35
cents a pound dressed for the best
grade, and from that down to 32 cents
In proportion to quality,. The price to
the wholesalers today ranged from 27
to 30 rents per. pound. Uve turkeys

cents'.
While the California and Oregon sup
