STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Or, Jan. 31.
(Special.) "I don't car what the
House does; I will do my duty as I see
It, and that is all 1 can do," said Gov
ernor West this afternoon, when told
what bills had passed over his veto, the
number being left-overs from the cele
brated session of 1911.
Apparently, the members of the
House care equally as much as to what
the Governor does, for "all day long,
from 10 A. M. until after 4 P. M, the
steam roller was run along- In the his
toric chamber of the Capitol as smooth
ly as any machine was ever rolled over
a soft pavement when putting on the
The engineer was Representative
TJpton, of Multnomah, chairman of the
committee on vetoed bills. Only on two'
occasions was he assisted. Then Con
rad P. Olson, also of Multnomah, re
lieved him at the wheel for a time.
Time Only Necessary.
All it required to roll the machine
over the West vetoes was time, backed
with a little energy, entirely oratorical.
Nearly everyone who cared to talk had
a word or more, the debates being; de
liberate and not very exciting. It had
been determined what to do and It was
done. The alignment was so strong
that Governor West's friends did not
even try to stop the action, but sat by
and let the machine run along as fast
as possible, in order to have the agony
Upton was on the floor much of the
time, it being his business to enlighten
the members - of the House as to the
reasons why the committee on vetoed
bills had recommended certain ones to
pass over the veto of the Governor. On
each bill several speeches were made,
for and against, but when the vote was
announced the vetoes were overridden
by an overwhelming majority.
The slaughter, as it was referred to
by Representative Hagood. of Multno
mah, reputed to be the Governor's clos
est friend in the House, continued all
day and will be resumed Monday at 2
P. M, when Senate bill 264, relating to
a fish hatchery on Spring Creek,
Klamath County, and House bill 239,
relating to swamp lands, will be dis
cussed. That they will be passed over
the veto seems as certain as that the
sun will rise that day.
Unnecessary Burden Asserted.
Senate bill 179, vetoed because the
Governor said it would place an un
usual and necessary burden on school
directors, was declared by Mr. Upton
to be necessary to protect material men
and laborers. He said that there have
been cases where contractors have left
unpaid bills In various localities. La
borers were left in the lurch and with
no redress because school officials
failed to exact a bond. Mr. Upton said
he had heard that the Governor had,
since vetoing the bill, decided it might
be all right.
Hagood, of Multnomah, replied to say
that the Governor has not renlgged on
any of these bills. His vetoes all stand.
General speeches were made for and
against, but the bill was passed, 56
Senate bill 129 was the next bill con
sidered this afternoon. It provides that
there shall be an emergency board,
consisting of the Governor, Secretary
of State, State Treasurer, .President of
the Senate, Speaker of the House and
the chairmen of ways and means com
mittees of the Senate and House, to
pass on emergency expenditures during
the years between sessions of the Leg
islature. Olson Champloni Bill.
Representative Olson took the floor
to champion the bill, which he said is
aimed at the deficiencies which have
been rolled up In past years. He spoke
at length on It.
"I congratulate my colleague, Mr.
Upton, on getting Mr. Olson to talk
of this part of bis arduous duties." said
Representative Hagood. "It must be
awful to have to dig up a lot of dope
on all of these bills. Let the slaughter
Tho bill was passed by a vote of BJ
Senate bill 127, a companion bill to
129. also vetoed, was passed over the
veto. The veto was made because the
Governor said tho state would have to
beg for funds to run any institution,
In case the same should be burned
down, he said. Mr. Olson declared this
Desire to Rub. Bills la Denied.
Representative Upton, of Multnomah,
chairman of the committee on vetoed
bills, said that there had' been no de
sire on the part of its members to
rush bills in for action; they had con
sidered the bills well, he said, and
made their recommendations solely on
the merits of each MIL
Mr. Upton declared that House bill
3868 Is a good one. He pointed out
the convenience that would result to
the traveling public by the posting of
trains when late. Governor West said
In vetoing this bill that the burden of
posting notices falls on the employes
and that there is no penalty on the
employer or the companies. This Mr.
Upton denied, saying that 1000 pen
alty extends to them, but that this Is
an effort to impress personal responsi
bility on depot agents, who are to be
fined $25 for failure to post bulletins
Rearoes of Jackson was opposed to
the passing of the bill because ha said
tt does not make Its demands suffi
ciently specific as to information that
shall be posted.
Homan of Malheur, a former station
agent, said the bill is unjust; that It
penalizes the wrong person. He said
that at times a dispatcher even can
not learn the exact status of a train.
Lewelling of Linn favored the bill,
saying It is needed by tbe public
Htansfield of Umatilla declared the
bill necessary. He said that depot
agents do not give out the informa
tion they have, much to the detriment
and delay of the publlo.
Vote la Decisive.
The vote was 37 to 9 to pass the bill
over the veto.
House bill lit was then taken up.
It provides that property owners on
county roads must keep the highways
clear of thistles.
Representative Mann declared the
bill is all right, while Hagood of Mult
nomah said that "there is a lot of ob
jection in this House and if some of
my Republican friends can break from
the corral, we will sustain the veto."
He said that the bill Imposes a hard
ship on landowners, who, he said, may
be compelled to clear out noxious weeds
which grow from seeds dropped along
the roads by their careless neighbors.
He said the road supervisors should
look after this work,
Hlnkle of Umatilla thought the bill
meritorious, while Howard of Douglas
said be felt that it might Impose
hardships on some of the farmera
Spencer of Multnomah pointed out that.
In his opinion, the bill is a good one,
as it will take the work from the su
pervisors and makes the duty devolve
on the owner, who should cut them.
Pelrce of Coos and Curry counties
said that, if the bill should pass, prob
ably tho members favoring It will want
to have the adjoining owners pay for
the highway improvements.
Scheubel of Clackamas said his ob
jection to the bill is that It Is not ap
plicable to the eastern and western
sections of the state.
Gill of Clackamas said he is going
to live on a farm in Eastern Oregon
and if he finds any weeds there he will
eradicate them himself.

STATE CAPITOL. Salem. Or Jan, SI.
(Special.) Appropriation requests
made during the past week of the
legislative session reached a total of
$647,415, by far the lightest week so
far. This brings the total of requests
up to $4,106,263 and not a general ap
propriation bill even In Bight. This
makes it certain that the amount of
the requests will go well up to the
The House during the past week re
ceived appropriation bills totaling $399,
000, while bills amounting to only -$3,-000
were introduced in the Senate.
So far the total amount of the ap
propriation bills which have been Intro,
duced In the House is $2,639,000 and in
the Senate $1,258,848.
Big Pruning Expected.
With the total of $8,000,000 or more
for requests In sight it will mean a
pruning of something over $4,000,000 to
keep the amount down to the $5,000,000
mark of the preceding session.
Some of the members say the ap
propriations for this session will be
lower than three years ago while
others assume the attitude that inas
much as the state Is growing rapidly
this should be no criterion, but the
appropriations should be passed as to
their merits regardless of where the
total might lead the session.

Marriage Bill A'ffects Men Only.
STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Or., Jan. 31.
(Special.) The Senate bill providing
for the examination of men prior to
a marriage contract passed, that body
today. It was labeled by many of the
Senators who spoke on it as one of
the most meritorious measured which
has so far appeared. It provides that

riage ceremony the male party to the
marriage must urdersrn an examina

passes it will enable him to go when
ever duty calls.
STATE TREASURER KAT has been
running a little Garden of Eden

been packed with boxes of apples that
have caused the legislators to beat a

passes the crematory bill. All un
claimed bodies In the asylum crema

claimed dead in the future at all the
THE Senate finally fixed the time
the term of the Governor shall
start. Early in the session a bill came
in to repeal an old section of the code,
which started the Governor's term In
September. Then it was thought If It
was repealed there would be no show
ing in tbe code as to when his term
really did stop. Three efforts were
made to arrive at a conclusion. All
the Senators breathed a sigh of relief
when the goal was finally reached.
SENATOR SMITH, of Coos and Curry,
has had the misfortune mainly to
Introduce bills that have been sailing
on troublous seaa. They have been
coming In with adverse reports and
meeting defeat. He says he Is satis
fied to get the Senators on record.
WHEN a vote is being taken on a
motion in the Senate the side
that has Farrell with it has an undue
advantage. He has a lusty pair of
lungs, and when he votes the sound
is like the rushing of mighty winds.
FATHER WATERS, of Astoria, made
a most telling speech on the appro
priation asked for the Panama Canal.
It was full of enthusiasm, sound sense
and sympathy. He was loudly ap
plauded. SENATOR DAT has a hobby. It is
workmen's compensation. He never
rises to Bpeak on a bill but sooner or
later his talk drifts to that subject.
He says that there must be some work
men's compensation this Legislature

BARRETT ROAD BILL
PASSED Id SENATE
Joint Conference Made Likely
by Passage of Hurd Meas
ure in Lower House.
COMPROMISE IS. POSSIBLE
Fpper Body Accepts Kellaher
Amendment 'Factions Eager for
Road Legislation but Divided
on Plan of Action.
STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Or, Jan.
81. (Special.) Passage of the Barrett
county bonding road bill by the Senate
this morning probably will mean the
calling of a Joint conference commit
tee to act on the Barrett and Hurd
bills. The Hurd bill passed the House
yesterday and is known as the Grange
bill. While both are county bonding
aets they are by no means identical.
To throw the Hurd bill into the Sen
ate and the Barrett bill into the House
without a conference would probably
spell defeat for both bills.
No conference has been finally de
cided upon, although a number of the
Senators have urged the suggestion.
Both of the bills will probably be taken
in and one or the other indorsed or a
There is no doubt now of the senti
ment in both houses that road legisla
tion should be enacted and that it will
come in the shape of a county bonding
act, the sentiment of the people being
construed in that light. In the passage
of constitutional amendments.
Kellaher Amendment Fought.
The main fight on the Barrett bill
today was directed at the Kellaher
amendment, which has for its purpose
restriction on the use of patented pave
Thompson assailed the amendment as
"loaded," declaring It would destroy
competition. The bill passed carrying
the amendment, however. There were
nine votes against the bill, these being
Bean, Calkins, Dimick, Hawley, Hums,
Hoskins, Kiddle, Lester and Neuner.
Thompson was absent.
If a conference is held it Is liable to
have a stormy and lengthy siege. While
the two bills apparently have the same
general purpose, the details differ. The
Grange contingent is opposed to the
Barrett bill, and at the same time
there is a decided faction against the
Grange bill. The Grange bill, with
amendments, is one that was defeated
at the last election.
Provisions of Bills Differ.
The Barrett bill provides that the
County Court shall be the supervising
power In road matters, but the people
of counties shall vote on the question
of road bonds.
The Hurd or Grange bill provides for
election of delegates in road districts,
these delegates to attend a county road
meeting to determine upon road ques
On objection that was lodged on the
Senate floor against the Barrett bin
was the fact that it allowed the Coun
ty Court, instead of the petitioners, to
designate where roads are to De con
. These are the two main questions
upon which the factional Interests will
split on the two bills, and which may
result in considerable difficulty before
an adjustment can be reached.
At the same time, Kellaher states he
Intends to have placed in the Hurd bill
an amendment similar to that put in
the Barrett bill, and this, too, may ere

parent fear, however, that the conflicts
will be so serious as to aereat roaa
legislation, and a compromise Is looked

COMIFROMISE ON BILL SEEN"
McOolloch Bill May Be Redrafted',
but Greatly Modified.
STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Or., Jan. 81.
(Special) Possibility of a compro
mise on the McColloch bill, to supplant
District Attorneys, Sheriffs and Consta
bles for 90 days in the prerogative of
the Governor, was apparent in the Sen
ate Judiciary committee tonight after
a long discussion of the bilL While if
any compromise is reached it will lose
many of the earmarks of the original
bill, at the same time it will carry out
the original proposition of placing the
Governor in such a position as to make
effectual the constitutional provision
which says that the Governor shall see
that the laws are .faithfully executed.
On the face the great majority of the
members of the Judiciary committee are
opposed to the McColloch bill as it '
stands In its present form. The pres
ent bill gives the Executive the right j
10 supplant uistnci Aiiurneys, oucrnia
and Constables for 90-day periods. The
sentiment or the majority of tne com
mittee is that the Governor should have
the right to prefer charges against any
of the public officers Involved but that
such public officers also be given the
right to have a summary hearing be
fore the Circuit Court of the district
or an adjoining district. They believe
that each of the officials enumerated
should have a privilege of being
granted his day in court and that no
arbitrary removal by the Governor
should be allowed.
Indications point to the possibility ox
a sub-committee of the Judiciary com
mittee being named to draft a sub
stitute bill If the members can agree
on its provisions to go before the Sen
ate with the indorsement of the com

BILL BRIDGES LAW GAP
SENATE PASSES MEASURE TO
STOP BONUSES TO BANKS.
Dimick Opposes Proposed Legisla
tion on Grounds That Penalty
Is Not Severe Enough.
STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Or.. Jan.
31. (Special.) Giving as his reason
for opposing the bill by Malarkey and
Butler which makes it a crime for an
officer or employe of a bank to accept
bonuses in connection with tne busi
ness of the bank, that the penalty at
tached Is too small, Senator Dimick,
when the bill was on final passage to
day attacked W. Cooper Moirls and
Louis J. Wilde.
The bill has for its purpose to cover
the gap in the law which allowed Wilde
to go free In his trial in Portland.
"These penalties under the bill are
for from one to three years in the peni
tentiary," said Dimick. "Morris would
have been sent for from one to three
years and probably pardoned at the end
of the first year. Wilde wduld have
been sent to prison for from one to
three years when, if they both had their
dues, they would be there for the bal
ance of their lives."
His effort to have the penalties

Professor Unna, of Germany, and

"Nlne-tentna of humanity suffer with
catarrh but do not know what catarrh
Is," said an expert doctor, a specialist in
blood analysis. It is treated locally be
cause nature tries) to drive it out of tho
system. But nature must have help.
Nasal catarrh is merely an outlet, and
it is folly to expect a cure by inhalants or
local applications. If a stream is pol
luted at its source it is ridiculous to
waste time in purification at Its mouth.
By a long series of elaborate expert,
ments at the Swift Laboratory it Is defi
nitely known that catarrh can be cured
by the simple process of Inoculating the
blood with antidotal remedies that stop
inflammatory conditions throughout ths
mucous linings of all the organs of ths
body. This is done with the famous
Swift's fiure Specific, or as It is widely
known, S. S. S. It Is taken into the
blood Just as naturally as the most
nourishing food. It spreads Its Influence
over every organ in the body, comes
through all the veins and arteries, en
ables all mucous surfaces to exchange in
flammatory acids and other irritating
substances for arterial elements that ef
fectually cleanse the system and thus put
an end to all catarrhal pollution. S. S. S.
cleans out the stomach of mucous ac
cumulations, enables only pure blood-making
materials to enter the Intestines, com
bines with these food elements to enter
the circulation, and in less than an hour
is at work throughout the body in tht
process of purification.
Tou will soon realize its wonderful in
fluence by the absence of headache, x de
cided clearing of the air passages, a
steadily Improved nasal condition, and
a sense of bodily relief that proves how
completely catarrh often infests the en
tire system. You will find S. S. S. on
sale at all drug stores at $1.00 per bottle.
It is a remarkable remedy for any and
all blood affections, such as eczema, rash,
lupus, tetter, psoriasis, boils and all scrof
ulous conditions. For special advice on

ECZEMA IS CURED
By A Sinsrle Jar Of Reslnol After Many
Remedies Had Failed.
Brooklyn, N. T., Nov. 27, 1912. "It
would be very wrong not to tell you
what Reslnol Ointment and Reslnol
Soap have done for us. My baby boy
was born with a rough skin. It kept
getting worse all the time. It became
a weeping eczema and at times a thick
crust would form. He would cry and
Itch most all the time. I cannot tell
you all the remedies and salves I used,
before I sent for Reslnol samples.
"At once I washed him with Reslnol
Soap and put on Reslnol Ointment. He
slept for three hours. When he awoke
I washed him again and, like a miracle,
the scabs dropped off and have never
returned. You would not have known
him! Then X bought Reslnol Soap and
a large Jar of Ointment, but before It
was all used, baby was well. I would
not be without Reslnol Ointment and
Soap. I have recommended them to all
my friends." (Signed) Mrs. Katie
Markert, 176 Ralph Street.
If you or any of your little ones are
suffering from eczema, rash, tetter,
ringworm, or other itching, burning
skin eruption, there is only one better
proof of the value of Reslnol. That Is,
try it yourself and see! You can buy
Reslnol Ointment and Reslnol Soap at '
any druggist's, or can get samples free
by writing to Dept. 6-T, Reslnol Chem.
Co., Baltimore, Md. Resinol stops itch
ing instantly. Prescribed by careful
doctors for eighteen years.
