TO TALK OVER LAWS
I. N. Day Favors Advance
Meeting to Dissect New
Acts Legislators Plan.
TO SAVE TIME IS INTENT
Assemblage of Senators and Repre
sentatives Also May Servo to
Settle Speakership Candidacy--Another
A convention of all members of the
Legislature from Multnomah County
Senators as well as Representatives
probably will be held early next week.
The object of the meeting- la to as
semble all the ideas that now are con
juring in the minds of the Multnomah
delegation and determine which of
them are worthy of being drafted into
bills. It will remain for. the Legisla
ture as a whole, then, to say whether
these bills shall become laws.
I. N. Day, a holdover Senator from
Multnomah, is father of the plan for
a preliminary convention. He has sug
gested the idea to other legislators.
They approve it. While no formal call
has been issued it is probable that Sen
ator Day will be active in that direc
tion before the week ends.
"There's a whole lot of business that
we can dispose of before the Legisla
ture gets together," said Senator Day
yesterday. "We ought to meet and dis
pose of it. If any of the boys have
any legislative programme in mind
they can outline their plans and get
them ready for submission immediately
after the session opens.
Preparation Urged as Savine.
"We ought to have a lot of proposed
legislation all ready on the opening
day. Tho preliminaries or organiza
tion ought to be disposed o in advance.
Then we could devote our whole time
to sensible and economical business for
Mr. Day believes, too, that a conven
tion of the entire Multnomah delega
tion will serve largely to settle the
Speakership controversy. It is said
that the up-state Speakership candi
dates are waiting expectantly in the
hope of election through the failure of
Multnomah uniting upon someone. In
addition to those already in the field
it is understood that E. E3. Blanchard,
of Grants Pass, is considering himcelf
a possible dark horse.
Plowden Stott, a member of the
Multnomah delegation, proposes to in
troduce a bill that will prescribe more
severe penalties against .the sale of
opium, morphine, cocaine and other
haMt-forming drugs. The last Legis
lature took advanced steps in this di
rection, but Mr. Stott believes that fur
ther restrictions should be placed upon
the statute books against the promis
cuous sale of dangerous drugs.
Ban on Prescriptions Intended.
He will include in his bill a provision
that shall make it a crime for a physi
cian or a dentist to prescribe the use
of such drugs except in the most severe
All members of the Legislature seem
committed to the plans for economy.
It is probable that no legislation will
be proposed that provides for special
One law that is certain of revision
Is the one passed at the last session
that governs the methods of paying
and collecting taxes. There has been
much complaint from taxpayers in all
parts of the state, as the new law pre
scribes a penalty of 1 pef cent a month
for delinquencies after the first tax
paying period, even when half the
taxes are paid at that time. In other
words, it makes it an economical ne
cessity to pay all taxes at the same
Assessor May Meet Solona.
Heury E. Reed, Assessor for Mult
nomah County, is eager to hold a pre
liminary meeting with the members of
the Multnomah delegation for the pur
pose of 'outlining plans for changes in
the taxpaying law.
John B. Coffey,- County Clerk, also
wants to present several minor changes
In the election laws.
Meanwhile various candidates for
clerkships in either house are continu
ing their activities. The latest to en
ter the field is Harold O. Wilkins, of
Portland. He is an attorney and wants
to be journal clerk in the House of
Martin Schacht, of Portland, Is un
derstood to be a candidate for the of
fice of State Architect. W. C. Knight
on, of Salem, is the Incumbent. The
position pays $4500 a year.
F. C. Herrin, a prominent Portland
insurance man. is understood to be a
candidate for the office of State Insur
ance Commissioner, -to succeed John"W.
Although Commissioner Ferguson's
term does not expire until January,
1917, it is understood that the next
Legislature will take some action that
will make it possible for Governor
Withycombe to name a Republican to
VIADUCT TIME IS LIMITED
Southern Pacific Must Act on Hol
gate Crossing by December 1.
The city has given notice to the
Southern Pacific Company that action
in the proposed construction of a via
duct over Hoi gate street will be forced
after December 1. The company has
been given until that time to report
definitely on its Intentions.
The Improvement of Holgate street
recently involved the improvement of
the part of the street extending over
the Southern Pacific tracks. Work was
held up at this point on account of the
proposal of the company to build a
viaduct. Plans were submitted to the
city for a design, but were rejected be
cause it was proposed to use some of
the steel from the old steel bridge.
The city presented an alternate de
sign, which was rejected by the com
pany on the ground that it would be
too costly. The company announced
that It was willing to expenI only
$55,000 for the viaduct, and the city
designed a span to cost that much.
This was submitted to the company
and Is still pending.

BAKER PLANS HELD UP
SEATTLE THEATER NOT AVAIL
ABLE, VANCOUVER. UNPROMISING.
First Bow of Spokane Company Dc
elared Hugre Success and Welcome
' Is Accorded New Performers.
On favorable development of certain
contingencies In Seattle and Vancou
ver, B. C, depends the opening of stock
companies in those cities by George L.
Baker, head of the Portland Baker
Players, who, accompanied by Mrs.
Baker, has returned from a tour
of investigation. Mr. Baker came di
rectly from Spokane, where he wit
nessed the opening of the Famous Ba
ker Players at the Auditorium. The
opening was, according to Mr. Baker,
auspicious and promising.
"We will not be able to go into Seat
tle or Vancouver, B. C, Just at this
time," said Mr. Baker. "The outlook
in Seattle is good enough, but we
would not want to open there until we
could obtain a certain theater which
is not feasible for the present. Tbat
leaves a contingency to be overcome
there. As for Vancouver, conditions
are not satisfactory Just now. On the
other hand, if there Is favorable de
velopment in a reasonable length of
time we will go in.
"We will continue to watch the op
portunities in Seattle and Vancouver,
but for the present will confine opera
tions to Spokane and Portland. Tlie
Spokane company established Itself
Sunday, when the opening was a genu
ine triumph. The Spokane people
seemed to 'take to' the compr.ny and
the expression of a number of busi
ness men I met was that the city con
sidered It a commercial asset. Fur
thermore the company seems to have
won the people."
Soon after his arrival yesterday
morning Mr. Baker began making
plans for the part the Baker Players
will take in the midnjght matinee New
Year's eve. The managers will meet
Thursday morning at the Heilig and
discuss plans in detail.

ALARMS LAID TO FIREMEN
Men at Sunn side- Station Sent Mes
sages to Get Rides, Is Report.
With the arrest yesterday by De
tectives Mallett and Price of Paul Ski
bee, mystery surrounding an unusual
number of false fire alarms turned in
at the Sunnyside fire station has been
cleared up. As an outcome of invest
tigation, which is under way, a number
of the firemen of the station may be
discharged. Five members of the com
pany are said to have had a hand in
the sending in of tfie false alarms
that they could enjoy the rides.
It is said that in some cases Sklbee
used a private telephone in the rear
of " the , engine-house to telephone in
the alarms to the headquarters at the
City Hall. Charges may be made
against members of the engine com
pany. The penalty for turning in a
false fire alarm is a $500 fine and six
BELGIAN SHIP IS LIKELY

within two days to have completed ne
gotiations and to be able to announce

In the meantime the committee is
carrying forward the other phases of
the work vigorously. Every district in
the state is expected to be organized to
assist in assembling the cargo of food
stuffs that is to be shipped from Port
land to the relief of the refugees in the
old country. -
CITY'S COSTS EXPLAINED
Auditor Tells of Financial Condi
tions and Methods of Relief.
The financial condition of the city
was discussed yesterday by City
Auditor Barbur at a meeting of the
Oregon Civic League. Mr. Barbur ex
plained the causes contributing to the
increase In the cost of municipal gov
ernment and urged the adoption of the
serial bond in place of the present form.
Mr. Barbur declared that the city
could have a tax levy of 6 mills next
year if the conditions were the same
as they were when the 1914 tax levy
was made. He eald the assessed valua
tion of the city has dropped 18,000,000,
and the city in 19iS will lose a great
deal 'of revenue which usually comes in
from liquor licenses.
PAROLE RIGHT QUESTIONED
Judge Morrow's Clemency'to Ed De
Young Void, Is Opinion.'
Whether Judge Morrow in paroling
Ed De Toung, convicted fraudulent
land trader,' had the legal right to ex
tend clemency when he gave the parole
yesterdsy, is a point that has been
called in question by District Attorney
Evans, and it is probable that habeas
corpus proceedings will be brought to
determine whether or not De Young
must serve a prison sentence.
De Toung was given until October 19
to appeal, but commitment papers were
not issued, and the prisoner was held
in the County Jail. These papers were
issued yesterday before the parole was
signed, and Sheriff Word will hold De
Young on the ground that when the
man waa committed to the penitentiary
