That tha retail merchants of Oregon as

when a committee composed of Senator

appointed to draft a net-weight bill
and urge Its paassgs at this session of
The proposed bill will compel all
manufacturers to label on the outside
of the original package Its exact
weight, and the manufacturer will be
held strictly responsible.
The present net-weight bill has

It is contended that advantage has been
taken of this fact to sell thousands of
dollars' worth of short-weight butter,
lard, extracts and other commodities.
Wholesale Merchant Grilled.
Oregon wholesale merchants not only
received a severe grilling on the floor
of the convention today, but will be
ren.ured by resolutions at tomorrow's
meeting. Eastern Oregon retailers
complain that the wholesale dealers are
encroaching on their business by sell
ing lota of goods Jio stockmen and to
thr large mining camps. Representa
tives of the wholesale houses, thev say.
load them up with goods and then so
out and sell to the retailers" customers.
Wholesale houses which make a prac
tice of selling petty orders to camps on
the Government works will also be cen
sured. One merchant rams from Sumpter to
nuke a complaint of this practice. He
said that a wholesale bouse with which
be has done business for a number of
years, after selling him his season's
supplies, sent a representative from
the house and sold a $700 bill of good
to a mining camp which had previous
ly purchased all supplies from him.
This practice, he says. Is bring carried
on extensively In the stock and mining
districts of Eastern Oregon, and that It
is proving rnlnous to retail merchants.
Parcels Post to Be Opposed.
Every effort toward establishing a
parcels post delivery will be fought by
the association. It la contended thst
the parcels post will give the cheap
mall-order houses an opportunity to se
cure a large portion of the business
which now goes to the retailer. This
the members say Is not only Injurious
to the merchants, but to their custom
ers as well.
No meeting was held this afternoon,
and the members of the delegation di
vided their time between visiting the
state institutions and lobbying at the
legislature. Merchants from different
sections of the state went to their rep

Mr. Credale. a retired merchant of
Albany, told of his experience as a
merchant 40 years ago. when often It
was necessary to extend credit for sev

beat out of the bill.
R. Alexander, of Pendleton, a candi
date for president of the association,
sava that the system In vogue at Al
bany 40 years ago Is to some extent
practiced today In the Eastern Oregon
wheat belts, where the merchant Is
compelled to carry the wheatgrowera

on the crop.
A Isrre number of delegates arrived
from different sections of the state to

STERILIZATION" BILL KILLED

Measure After Heated Debate.
STATE CAPITOL. Salem. Or.. Jan. 2
(Special) Dr. Owens-Adalr's sterili
sation bill met defeat In the Senate this
morning and was Indefinitely postponed
after a strenuous fight In a practically
evenly divided House.
Abraham was most vigorous In his
opposition, declaring that It Is impossi
ble to harmonize this bill with the
present state of civilization and with
the doctrines of government.
I suppose If this bill passes," ha
said. -It will distinguish us further as
having something on our statute books
as a part of the Oregon system that
no other state has."
An assertion by Abraham that tha
law does not exist In Indiana was re
futed by Albee, who displayed a copy
of the law as it stands In that state.
Abraham declared that It is not tha
same law: that the Indiana law was
passed for the purpose of curing the In
dividual, while the Adair bill la for the
regulation of procreation and propaga
tion. Such regulation. Abraham argued.
Is without the province of humankind
and should not be exercised.
Carson attacked the bill on the
grounds of Its unconstitutionality, say

there shall ba "no cruel and unusual

to pass a memorial to Congress In
Klamath's behalf. From Salem. Mr.
White went to Sacramento to place the
aubject before the California law

In getting funds for the completion of
the project were practically as great as
those of Oregon, the lawmakers were as
anxious to take up and help push the
demands for better recognition as are
the people of Klamath.
Until now California apparently has
been oblivious to the tact that Its acre
age to come under irrigation was esti
mated at no less than 60.000 acres and
that probabilities are that this will be
largely Increased when tha bed of Tula
Lake is finally reclaimed.

of the Circuit Court
The suit was brought to determine the
title to the sands lying directly oppo
site the city front and which, since they
were used successfully last season for
seining, have been considered quite val
uable. Several witnesses sre being ex
amined and the principal testimony,
aside from deeds and other documen
tary evidence. Is that of various local
pilots and steamer captains regarding
the shifting of the sands In that locality
during the past few years.
The plaintiff claims title to the prop
erty throuKh a deed from the stats is
sued on February 17, 1879, ta a sand
consisting of 21.37 acres located some
distance above the location of the sand
In controversy, but lying In front of

The complaint asserts that at the time
of the purchase this island was the only
one In front of Bhlvely's Astoria, that
it has remained Intact, but owing to the
action of the tides and currents has
shifted down-stream to the location of
the present Bands.
The defendant bases Its olaim to the

for a tide Island which it asserts Is the
property In question and also on a deed
Issued by the state In August, 1889, to

LANE DISLIKES ROAD WAY
County Court Say Supervisors Are
Reckless With Bills.
EXGBNEX Or., Jan. 26. (Special.)
The County Court of Lane County
wants a change from the present Ward
Supervisor system. The Commissioners
say that the position of Road Super
visor permits reckless waste of money,
and as a consequence, the county gets
only a small percentage of return for
the money spent on the rosds.
Several reports are cited In the
Court's contention. One man turned In
a bill of $451.25 for personal services,
while he spent only J450 on the re
mainder of the work. Another sub
mitted a bill for $6 for poles and $166
for salaries, while his own bill for
services was $280. Lane County's total
bill for Road Supervisors' salaries was
$14,000. The bills come in properly
sworn, and the Commissioners feel that
they have no time to investigate them
