Board of Control Must Buy Plant
for $20,000, but Work Will Bo
Let Under Contract System "
Within Short Time.
SALEM, Or., Aug-. 5. (Special.) Bo
cause Governor West vetoed a bill
passed at the recent session of the
Legislature repealing a bill enacted in
1911 providing for the payment of a
flat salary of J4000 a year to the State
Printer, the death of Willis S. Duni
way, State Printer, places the state in
what lawyers say will become an em
barrassing position. The bill of 1911
was repealed by the Legislature after
another bill, providing that the state
printing be done under the contract
system, had been passed. The new
rule was to become operative at the
expiration of Mr. " Dunlway's term.
January 1, 1915.
Either believing he could not live
long or foreseeing another emergency,
Mr. Duniway counselled the Legisla
ture to pass the bill repealing the law
of 1911 over the veto of the Governor,
and the lower house did so. The Sen
ate, however, sustained the veto.
The 1911 law became operative Im
mediately upon the death of Mr. Duni
way. It provides for the appointment
of his successor by the Governor, the
appointee to serve until January 1,
1915. It further provides that a State
Printer shall be elected at the general
election in November, 1914, and shall
assume the duties of his office Jan
uary 1, 1915. As the new law becomes
effective on that day, there may be no
candidate at the 1914 election.
it was reported today that George
Tutnam, editor of the Medford Mail
Tribune. R. A. Harris, state printing
expert, and William Cuddy, of Portland,
and W. M. Plimpton would be consid
ered for the office of State Printer.
Mr. riimpton was associated with Mr.
Duniway and understands thoroughly
the duties of the office.
The law of 1911 makes it mandatory
upon the Board of Control to provide
a state printing plant at once, J20.000
being appropriated for that purpose.
Whether the Board of Control will try
to buy the Duniway plant or a new
one is not known.
Attorney-General Crawford and
other lawyers hold that the provision
in the act that "all 'copy' approved
by the Board for printing shall be sub
mitted as far aa practicable in the
usual manner of advertising for bids
and with a view of securing the best
possible terms for the state," means
all state printing must be done under
the contract system. Foreseeing these
complications. Mr. Duniway made his
appeal to the Legislature to pass the
law repealing the law of 1911 over the
Governor Explains Veto.
Governor West said today that he
had not decided whom he would ap
point and that he probably would make
the appointment while away from the
city. His reason for vetoing the bill
repealing the flat salary measure was
that he feared the measure providing
for the contract system might be lost
in a referendum election and the sys
tem under which Mr. Duniway held
office would be continued.
That the law of 1911 is full of jokers
is admitted by almost every person
who has read it. They were recog
nised by the members of the recent
Legislature. One Joker of the bill is
that it provides for' the State Printer
entering into contract in the name of
. the state with his employes.
Under the 1911 law the Srrrs Printer
will receive a salary of $4000 a year
and his secretary $2000. The secretary
being vested with almost sole author
ity is another Joker of the measure.
LINN HAS PECULIAR CASE
Four Times County Clerk and Sheriff
Exchange Same Paper.
ALBANY, Or., Aug. 5. (Special.)
The County Clerk and Sheriff of Linn
County yesterday exchanged the same
paper four different times to complete
the proper legal process in garnishing
some money due from Linn County to
a defendant In a case now pending in
the State Circuit Court here. A pay
roll for county road wonk, filed yes
terday, showed that the sum of $25
was due this defendant and the plain
tiffs attorney took steps to garnish
County Clerk Marks issued a writ
of attachment and handed it to Sheriff
Bodlne. The Sheriff then served the
writ on the Clerk, who, representing
the county. Indorsed his answer as
garnishee on the paper. As garnishee
the Clerk had to return the paper to
the Sheriff, who had served it on him,
and then the Sheriff handed the paper
back to the clerk for filing in the rec
ords of the Clerk's office. Each of
these transfers of the paper from one
officer to the other was a necessary
step in the legal procedure to garnish
This is the first case on record here,
so far as known, in which money due
from Linn County has been garnished.
Formerly the law did not permit the
attachment of money due from the
county, but two years ago the Legis
lature changed the law in this regard
and since that time a case was not
filed for this purpose here until yes

BRUIN HOT PRESENT
"Bearsteak" of Press Club Is
, Held Notwithstanding.
Franklin Griffith, F. W. Hild, Will
H. Daly, Clyde Aitchison and C.
A. Blgelow Are Speakers at
Although a well-known bear of
Southern Oregon had . been selected to
feature the Portland Press Club "bear
steak" supper last night, owing to the
intense heat it was impossible to en
tice him down from the mountain. This
was the explanation given by Presi
dent John L Travis for the absence of
real "bearsteak" from the table bill of
fare. But if there wasn't any bear
jsteak, which is tough, anyway and
tastes of roots and herbs, there were
thick cuts of Juicy beefsteak. The
"bearsteak" was given in honor of
Franklin T. Griffith, new president of
the Portland Railway, Light & Power
Company, and F. W. Hild, general man
ager of the same company.
In addition to Mr. Griffith and Mr.
Hild, prominent city officials and rail
road men were also among the guests.
Those present included City Commis

Travis Is To at master.
The guests' were ushered into the
"stunt" hall of the club, in which two
long tables were already groaning with
beefsteak and other refreshments.
Then the fun started.
"Gentlemen," began Toastmaster
Travis, "in anticipation of the honor
of Introducing Franklin T. Griffith, 1
have had a stenographer prepare my
remarks for me, which includethe full
history. of his life."
When the toastmaster produced a
huge roll of manuscript and started to
read it a commotion arose. An irate
member- of the club moved that Mr.
Travis be extended the courtesy com
mon to members of Congress by hav
ing his remarks published in full in
the record and let it go at that. This
motion was hastily adopted and the
toastmaster sat down in confusion.
But when Mr. Griffith, with this in
troduction, stood up to speak, a new
handicap developed. A young man
standing by a piano in the corner be
gan singing in a loud tone of voice
"The Midnight Owl Car." It proved
impossible to silence him and Mr. Grif
fith was compelled to be seated until
the noise stopped.
"The time is coming soon. I hope,"
said Mr. Griffith, "when every citizen
will take as much, interest in the op
eration of a corporation such as the
Tortland Railway, Light & Power Com
pany as the officials of the company
themselves. We are entering a new
era of understanding between corpora
tions and the public and it is a good
thing that it is so."
After Mr. Griffith had spoken briefly.
Robert E. Strahorn, of the Portland,
Eugene & Eastern, who had not been
on the programme, was spotted by the
crowd and compelled to speak.
Parodies Are Features. -
At this point the young man with,
the songs bobbed to the front again
by singing "The Car on the Lonesome
Line." This and an introduction by
Toastmaster Travis put General Man
ager Hild to the front.
There was considerable discussion
after the speech as to whether Mr.
Hild had proved his point. His lecture,
however, was greatly applauded and
at its conclusion the young man with
the songs burst into "How Late Can
You Stay Out Tonight?"
Other speakers Included Commis
sioner Will H. Daly, Clyde Aitchison,
W. T. Buchanan and Commissioner C.

PARK COYOTE KILLS PUPS
Mother Resents Interference of At
tendant In Cage.
Although all kinds of plans were
made at Washington Park Zoo to raise
a family of coyotes this Summer, the
plan failed yesterday when a mother
coyote which brought a family of pup
pies into the world a week ago killed
all her young ones because a park at
tendant attempted to clean iheir cage.
The same trouble has been experi
enced In past years, the young coyotes
having been killed because of inter
ference by sightseers and park attend
ants. This time a dark cage resembling
a cave was built for the mother coyote.
The young came into the world a week
ago and it looked as though they were
going to survive. Yesterday an attend

North End Houses Raided.
Too much flaunting of their vice by
women of the North End led to a gen
eral raid the polic yesterday upon
the district around Fourth and Davis
streets, and in a short time 12 women,
taken from seven houses, were at the
station under charges of vagrancy. The
raid followed a recent quiet tour made
by Chief Clark through the district, in
the course of which he noticed numer
ous things which did not meet liis ap
proval. The houses raided were principally
small dens along North Fourth street,
between Couch and Everett, and the
women brought out of them were in
most cases well-known to the police.
The police noted a new spirit among
the women, who, instead of opening
their doors when summoned, as in the
pant, kept the bars up, and it was nec
essary to force entrance.
