(Special.) V committee on alcohoUc
liquor that is unequivocally committed
to the support of the pending Pro"D':
tion bill prepared by the Committee of
One Hundred has been appointed by
Speaker Selling, of the House. The
prohibition bill already haa been re
ferred to the committee, and it proposes
to submit it to the House for early con
sideration. It ia probable that the prohibition
measure will be reported out with few
If any chances. At least four member,
of the committee favor the bill sub
stantially in Its present form. our
members voted "dry" at the recent ela
tion. E. V. Littleneld. of Portland the
chairman, has been a temperance advo
cate nearly all his life.
Tate ef People Considered.
I voted dry in November." said Judge
Uttleticld. "and 1 believe the people of
the state meant the
hen they returned a majority of 36.000
In favor of prohibition. They didnt
want any half-way measures. I am ab
solutely in favor of the Committee ot
one Hundred s bill that we now have
in our committee. There may be a
few minor changes, but they will be
unimportant. So far as the main pro
visions of the measure are concerned
I am in favor of them. ...
"And. what's more. I am absolutely
opposed to any plan that will open the
a ay for the continuation of the liquor
business. I have reference to the re
ported scheme of the hotelkeepers to
t-atn the privilege of selling whisky
after the regular saloon Is put out of
business. The people voted not only to
kill the open saloon, but to eliminate
the commercial tradlc in liquor.
ioerlal KleetlM Opposed.
-I am unequivocally opposed to the
proposal that this Legislature author
lie a special election costing about
JliiO.uiHi of the taxpayers" money for
submitting to the voters an amendment
that will give them a monopoly on the
"And 1 expect to fight, as chairman
of thia committee and as a member of
this Legislature, first and foremost, last
and all the time, against the adoption
of any amendments to the pending bill.
"1 want to keep faith with the people
who voted dry at the recent election.
Inducements were held out to them that
the law would not be so strict that it
would be Impossible of enforcement,
and I shall Insist that we regard those
promises sacredly. At the same time
I don't believe in stopping one Inch
short of making the dry measure effec
tive in every particular."
Varhaaged Bill Favoree.
James S. Stewart, a newspaperman
of Wheeler County, is another "extra
dry" member of the committee.
"While I am not a prohibitionist." he
said. "I voted dry at the recent elec
tion. 1 am in favor of the bill in its
present form and I know of no changes
that 1 could suggest.
I think the plan to submit another
amendment to the people that will give
certain privileged classes the right to
sell whisky is a bad idea. I shall op
pose it with all my might."
Dr. J. U. Anderson, of The Dalles,
author of the pending bill, also is a
member of the Committee of One Hun
dred. "Of course. I am In accord with the
bill as drawn. It is satisfactory in
every way. and I hope it goes through
without amendment. 1 voted dry in
November." said Dr. Anderson.
Property Haas Disliked.
VV. 1. Lafferty. of Corvallis. is an
other "dry" member of the committee,
although he thinks the provision in the
present measure that makes the owner
of property in which liquor Is sold a
party to the offense is a little too
"1 always have been regarded as a
prohibition man. although 1 did not run

STATK CAPITOL. Salem. Or., Jan. 14.

was in the form of a resolution pro

Specific officials, boards or commis

I Senator Butler, One in Favor of

tins Divided Session System
to Vote of People.
STATE CAPITOL. Salem. .Or., Jan. 14.
(gpeciaL) After a sharp verbal bat
tle the Senate today put a quietus on
the Kellaher resolution providing for a
divided session, and adopted a substi
tute, to be made a special order or
business on the 14th day, which pro
vides that adjournments be taken from
day to day as desired if the work has
then progressed satisfactorily.
The Kellaher resolution provided
that a recess of 20 days be taken after
the tenth day of the session so mat
the committees" would not be ham
pered in their work. Having the power
to adjourn any time It desires, the
action of the Senate virtually did noth
ing but send the Kellaher resolution "to
the hay." as the author predicted. The
committee on resolutions reported ad
versely on the Kellaher resolution and
urged the adoption of a substitute that
consideration of the adjournment plan
be continued until the 14th day of tho
Limit on Bills Wanted.
Kaiiaher said one of his objects in
introducing the resolution was to limit
the number of bills. It provided that
each member be limited to rive. He
said it could be done by agreement oi
the Senators if they desired.
"If we eo the limit on this bill busi
ness." said the Portland member, "we
will have to put a new roof on the
Capitol. We are all airected with the
same disease. When the 14th day
comes we will have as many bills as
Senator Bingham said not two per

the restrictions. He declared it tnere

Ballot Decision Proposed.
Senator Butler argued for the Kella
her resolution. He declared it wouio
nave the wav for reform, and served
notice on the Senate that he would in a
few days- Introduce a resolution pro
viding for the submission to the peo
ple of a constitutional amendment giv
ing divided sessions.
Senator Moser said the proposal had
been put squarely up to the Senate two
years ago and that Kellaher had voted
against It, according to the record. He
declared that under the rules the num
ber of bills could be limited.
Bishop announced that there was no
constitutional provision against the
Senate adopting a resolution limiting
the number of bills each member could
introduce. He said he thought it was a
good thing, and referring to the argu
ment that certain members had many
local bills which they felt required
urgent action, declared there was only
one bill that Marion County wanted

can hardly be accomplished without
the purchase of i referendum by olf ice
holrlera separated from their jobs, un
less an emergency clause be tacked
to the bills. In tLe same class wttb
the latter may be the County Judges
or the state. The knife is out for them
in the prospective reconstruction ot
stato courts In general.
Dry Clauses Oopveed.
So far. there is no definite indica
tion as to the form the prohibition law
will take. Some objections are heard
among the members concerning the
section of the Committee of One Hun
dred's bill prohibiting the use of
liquor lockers in clubs. This objection
ia raised ostensibly in behalf of the
man who lives at a club, on the theory
that he should not be deprived of
serving liquor to his guests if the man
who maintains & home haa that privi
lege. There is some criticism of the
limitations on quantity one may pur
chase outside the state and keep on
hand. This objection is in behalf of
the few individuals who import fancy
liquors from Europe and do not wish
to be confined to small shipments.
How ranch Impression these objec
tions will make cannot yet be fore
cast. Governor Withycombe is com
mitted to use Influence in behalf of a
strictly enforceable statute. While
there is now no ground to suspect that
the Legislature will be at all remiss
in that particular, it may be said posi
tively that a weak law will receive
the veto of the Governor promptly.
Removal Ajrsdnst Constitution.
In examination of the Committee of
One Hundred's btll two plainly uncon
stitutional provisions have been dis
covered, but they are of a character
subject to correction. One is a provi
sion for the removal by civil process
of officials who fail to enforce the law.
Removals from office can be ac
complished under the constitution only
by criminal proceedings or by vote of
Another provision provides for the
punishment of city officers who are
remiss in the enforcement of the law.
It is quite generally the opinion that
the home-rule amendment of the con
stitution makes the cities themselves

in mind members are attempting to
devise a means of complying with the
Secretary of State's recommendation
that a change be made in the fiscal
period of the state. There Is the
danger that a false impression of ex

previously been related that the ap

provisions of a law passed in 1913 no

In the meantime it has become neces
sary for Treasurer Kay to take the
bull by the horns and make himself
liable if anybody wants to be mean
enough to complain against him. The
House adopted a resolution calling for

There was no fund on which a warrant

comforting information for those who

grave crimes and misdemeanors. The
House members have openly become
accessories to a crime and all for a
