Ixmis Kuehn Drafts Measure That

In - Tnder Similar Acts,
Several important items of proposed
legislation will be presented to the
caucus of Multnomah County Senators
and Representatives in room 210 Cen
tral building. Tenth and Alder streets,
Nearly every member of the Mult
kiomah delegation is working on the
draft of at least one measure that he
wants to see enacted Into law. Some of
them are working jointly on the more
Important subjects, and it is probable
that there is much independent effort
on the part of various legislators in
the direction of the same measure.
It is for the purpose of eliminating
duplication of efforts that tonight's
meeting is called. Other important
business, however, will be presented.
It is the idea of Senators Day, Moser,
Perkins and Farrell, who called the
meeting, to learn what legislative plan
thir colleagues have in mind and to
submit such measures as affect the
country directly with the full support
f the Multnomah County organization.
, It is probable that a permanent or
ganization of Multnomah legislators
will be formed, and that regular meet
ings will be held at least once a week
or oftener until the time the Legisla
Permanent Registration Desired.
Louis Kuehn, a Representative-elect
of Multnomah County, is drawing up, a
bill providing for permanent registra
tion of voters over the state. He will
eubmit his plans first to the Multnomah
caucus and obtain support of that body
If possible. He intends to introduce it
in the Legislature.
Mr. Kuehn points out that the several
counties of the state are put to much
unnecessary expense at frequent inter
vals through the repeated registrations
of the same voters. He declares that
after once a citizen establishes his or
her right to vote there should be no
future necessity of registering. Voters
ehould keep the County Clerk or
other registration officials Informed of
changes of address, he says. He sug
gests, also, that a system can be de
vised that will keep the lists free from
names of dead people and those who
have left the state. In other states
where permanent registration has been
established the principal difficulty has
been In the prevention of illegal and
Unscrupulous politicians nave used
the names of dead people in enabling
"ringers" to vote. Mr. Kuehn, .however,
declares that thl3 situation can be
Tax Lava to Be Considered.
Revision of the taxpaying laws Is
certain to be given attention at to
night's meeting. The Mulnomah County
delegation is virtually unanimous on
the plan to make taxpaying in Oregon
a duty unaccompanied by the severe
hardships that attach to the system
devised by the last Legislature.
It has been suggested that efforts
might be made tonight for an adjust
ment of the speakership controversy
that has developed among members of
the lower house. It is not likely, how
ever, that definite action will be taken.

The quartet of Senators who have
called tonight's meeting are anxious
to save preliminary problems of or
ganization settled before the Legisla
ture assembles. They declare that the
next Legislature is committed to a pol
icy of economy and efficiency, and that
those ends cannot be met if time that
ehould be devoted to the actual trans

DEAD GIRL'S REC0RD ASKED
Tocatello Authorities Suspect That
Maude Howard Was Ward of City.
That the Portland police look up the
record of Maude Howard, who was re
cently found dead at Pocatello, Idaho,
is the request received by Chief of
Police Clark yesterday. Pocatello au
thorities believe that the girl was an
inmate of a local detention home.
The girl was found dead in. a shack
at Pocatello about November 15. Death
was due to an overdose of opium, the
authorities Said. Frank Arnold Brown,
thought to have taken the woman to
Pocatello, and Bill Gooden, a negro, al
leged to have provided the pair with
the drug, were arrested by the Poca
tello police and may be charged with
manslaughter, the police say.
Portland detectives will search all the
detention homes to learn more of the

Mr. Nachtigall was a conductor for
the Portland Railway, Light & Power
Company. He made two trips yester
day morning and had Just returned to
his home to prepare for dinner with
his parents and brother when the acci
At 10:30 o'clock his relatives heard
a cry for help from the bathroom. They
burst open the door and found the
young man lying unconscious la the
He had just finished his bath and had
reached up to turn off the electric drop
light by the side of the tub. His wet
hands made a good conductor for the
current and the whole voltage from the
light wire passed through his body to
the" water in the tub. On receiving the
shock he jerked his hand back to his
body and the current passed directly
through the heart.
Despite frantic efforts the relatives
were unable to get a physician for half
an hour. At last they succeeded in
getting Dr. J. Besson, from Sellwood
Hospital, and a , pulmoter was sum
moned. Dr. J. G. Grim arrived later.
The physicians and the pulmoter op
erators worked over the man till 3:20
o'clock. At first the family thought
that he showed signs of life, but at
3:20 the doctors pronounced him dead
and the body was removed to the un
dertakers. Dr. Grim said last night
that he believed the boy was dead when
the physicians arrived.
Young Nachtigall had been living
with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Nachtigall, and his brother, Charles.
The family had been in Portland about
a year. Another brother lives at their
former home in .Buffalo, N. Y.
