said Senator Moscr, of the -committee.
-I sunDose the business men or fort
land will Jump on me all right, but we
promised to save the taxpayers' money
and we are starting In the rlsht direc

nrpued for two days In the benate.
The members of the Judiciary com
mittee are: Moser, chairman; Butler.
IHmlck. Garland. Hollis. Vinton and
I.nns:sruth. When informed of the
action of the committee Mr. Chapman
"Portland has paid one-third of the
taxes expended by the immigration
commission and in addition Portland
business men have matched the state
monev .dollar for dollar, having ex
pended $72.0tiO In conjunction with the
$30,000 appropriated by me siaie.
Fund Well Spent, In Reply.
"These same business men are among
the heaviest taxpayers of the state,
and they would be the last to urge this
appropriation if by so doing they would
Jeopardize the economy programme laid
liown by the Legislature.
The appropriation1 has been well
pent, for the Oregon almanac and
other conservative state pamphlets for
the Information of the home-seeker
and investor, but If It Is necessary to
sacritice this valuable work in the
Interest of lower taxes I certainly
shall not object."

(Special.) The committee on revision

ably Senator Pimick'a bill to abolish
the act passed at the last session pro
tiding for the uniform accountancy
system. It will save the state $20,000
each biennium. that being the amount
Appropriated for the administration of
the act. It is estimated, however, that
the largest saving will be to the coun
ties themselves which have to pay for
the actual auditing of the books.
The department is under the super
vision of the state Insurance depart
ment, and numerous County Courts
have complained that the cost of hav
ing books experted under the system
has been from' two to three times as
much as it was under the old one when
the county authorities employed their
own experts. Several counties have re
fused to pay the amounts asked and
litigation may result. The committee
was unanimous in Its decision.

The measure introduced on the open

force the prohibition amendment was
referred to the conimluee on alcoholic

who were fearful that the wets would
try to have it referred to another com

STATE CAPITOL. Salem. Or.. Jan. 14.
(Special.) Upon reconsidering the
Senate today adopted a resolution
which was defeated Wednesday pro
viding for the employment of a bill
clerk at a salary of $4 a day. When
first considered It was beaten Dy only
one vote, several Senators who changed
their votes to the affirmative-announc
ing they did not understand its full
significance at that time.
Heretofore the printed bills nave

chamber and eacn member of the
Senate and virtually everybody else hasj
helped nimseii. as a result lew, n
any. Senators have had a complete
file, and when the measures were con
sidered on their final reading there
was a scurrying around for copies to
see Just what they contained.
Secretary of State Olcott has pro
vided a special room, where the bills
are to be kept, and the bill clerk win
be In charge. His duties will consist
in seeing that each Senator has a
complete file and that copies are mailed
to all persons desiring them. He also
will see that copies are - not wasted
as has been the case.
Senator Kellaher was consistent In
his opposition to the resolution. He
suggested that it savored of the "spoils
system" and that members should keep
their own tiles or have their clerics ao
it. He also urged that "ir there are
any other persons in the lobby desiring
jobs to please come forward as now is
the accepted time."
"I sav." continued the I'oruana man.

SIDELIGHTS OF LEGISLATURE
STATE CAPITOL, Salefci. Or., Jan. 14.
(Special.) One rule that is to be
xtrictiv enforced in the House while
this Legislature is in session is that
requiring the door leading from tne
Speaker's room into the House cham
ber shall be always open.
"Whenever 1 am in that room, the
Speaker told Doorkeeper Miller last
..i-hr -thA inor is to be open. I want
no secret meetings by any committees
of this House and I propose 10 uiu
none myself. The business that I
transact in here is the state's business
and any citizen of the state may know
what is going on."
George M. Hvland, who has more
or less to do with the Oregon exhibit
at the World's Fair in San Francisco,
walked up and down the aisles in the
House this morning and shook hands
with the members. He is here to see
the Governor and arrange to get some
fish and game exhibits for the big show
down in California.

The House was in session precisely
45 minutes this Aorning. Aside from
the announcement of the Speaker's
committee appointments and the in
troduction of the usual grist of bills
no business was transacted.
Mrs. Alice R. Nugent,- of Portland,
has been appointed a clerk on the com
mitteo of enrolled bills in the Senate.
Representative Davey. -of Harney

money that they earn.
"1 understand the wife of a banker
Is a clerk of some committee in the
Senate," said Davey this morning, "and
that a wealthy lumber manufacturer's
wife also has a Job over there.
All I have to say Is that such prac

who reallv need the money and who
doubtless are more competent are here

Multnomah County drew 10 of the
41 chairmanships. The Eaton men
drew several good chairmanships and

slgnments. Eaton himself was placed
on the important committee on assess

a large volume of legislation this year,

offered him additional places, but he
asked to be relieved.

Senator Day Wants Amendments
Preventing Deception in Petitions.
STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Or., Jan. 14.
(Special.) Resolutions providing for
submission to the people of constitu
tional amendments designed to put an
end to frauds in connection with the
circulation of Initiative, recall and ref
erendum petitions were introduced by
Senator Day today. It Is planned to
bar persons from signing petitions who
are not registered voters.
The present law provides that "legal
voters" may. sign them, and the trouble
has been in determining who are legal
voters. Under the proposed system the
signatures could . be compared with
those on the registration books and
fraud easily detected. It is declared
the proposed system , will put an end
to such complications as arose in Port
land at the recent recall election.
