GDyERNQR SHORN BY
Control of Three Boards
Taken Away From Him
BOXING BILL ALSO PASSES
Teto Certain, but Representatives
Muster Great Strength Minis
ters Oppose Bouts, but
Oft-Tried Act Wins.
OLTMPIA, Waslu, Feb. 2. (Special.)
w-By vote of 7! to IS. the House today
passed the three McArdle bills, taking
the Tax Commission. Land Board and
Board of Equalization from the control
cf the Governor.
The Senate. 22 to 18. passed the Wrey
boxing bill, which knocked in vain at
the door for several past sessions.
These actions made the day's ses
sions exciting in both branches of the
The vote in the House on the Mc
Ardle bills was on party lines. Every
Republican but Hastings, of King,
voted for the measures. Hastings had
Introduced a somewhat similar general
consolidation measure at the last ses
sion, taunted Republican leaders for
mothering his bill then and finally
said he would vote against the Mc
Ardle measures because there was "too
much politics in them."
Democrats' "o" Solid.
Every Democrat but Lowman. of
Skagit, who was absent, voted against
the bills. Murphine. of King, floor
leader of the Bull Moose, declared for
his party, "We are neutral in this mat
ter we don't care who licks the Demo
crats, but on rollcall the six rrogres
sives all voted "no."
Two hours' debate preceded the vote.
Representative McArdle, author of the
measures, reviewed, nis siuay oi proo
lems of state government, beginning
four years ago, when he first became a
legislator. He said he took the posi
tion of State Examiner after the last
session so that he might inform himself
better along economic lines ana mat
his group of bills was the result of
Reading from the inaugural message
of Governor Lister, Representative Mc
Ardle charged the executive with in
consistency in amending his proposal
of two years ago, which virtually is
duplicated now in one of the McArdle
bills. He attacaea me rates opcgiucu
by the present law for public printing.
Indicating that the organization prob
ably would back a measure to reduce
the profits of State Printer F. M. Lam
born, another of the Governor's ap
pointees. Wiley, of Spokane, and Reeves, of
Chelan, replied on behalf of the Demo
crats. Reeves caught attention by de
clarins at the end of his speech that
the McArdle measures were unconsti
tutional. "The constitution provides that the
substance and purpose of a legislative
measure shall be stated clearly in the
title." he said, "and this the present
measure falls to do. It should be en
titled 'An act to get the Governor's
goat 'and furnish Jobs for embryonic
Srute Passage Probable.
The measures now go to the Senate,
where their passage is probable. It is
virtually certain the measures will be
vetoed by the Governor.
The House vote today, a result of
action taken by the Republican House
caucus last night, indicates that in that
branch the measures can easily be re
passed over executive veto. In the
Senate the vote is somewhat closer, but
If the Kepublican caucus can hold all
members who have been participating,
the measures can be enacted.
The Senate majority in favor of the
boxing bill chose to pass it without
debate, but Bethel, of Lincoln, refused
to be shut off and started a violent
attack upon the measure.
When the Eastern Washington solon
adopted Billy Sunday tactics and es
sayed to speak in his shirt sleeves, the
other Senators objected and finally the
majority filed out of the chamber,
leaving hlra to harangue to the gal
leries. Protests of ministers against the Din
were also read. The vote showed bare
ly the constitutional majority of the
42 members. The measure authorizes
10-round. no-decision contests, with
six-ounce gloves, under supervision of
a State Athletic Commission, the New
York law being taken as a model.
The Senate also passed the McCoy
bill, repealing state bounties on "var
mints" largely on the ground that

MORE FISHWAR IMPENDS
House Measures May Cause fpper
and Lower IUver Clash.
STATE CAPITOL, Salem. Or., Feb. S.
(Suecial.) Another fishing war is
threatened in the House. The issue is
the regulation of fishing on the Co
lumbia ttiver. The upper river fisher
men and the lower river fishermen are
pitted against one another.
Representative Lewis, of Multnomah,

brought down the wrath of upper Co
lumbia fishermen. One is to prohibit
fishing with wheels and with traps at
any place in the river and the other
Is to prohibit fishing for talmon m
the Columbia east of Cascade Locks.
While these measures are general In
their application, they will have par
ticular reference to the Seufert fishing
Industry east of The Dalles. Mr. Seu
fert is the most prominent wheel op
erator on the river.
A few days after the Lewis bill was
Introduced, a measure fathered by
Representative Anderson. of The
Italics, made Its appearance. This bill
Is aimed at the drift-net fishermen at
the mouth of the Columbia and it Is
said will seriously restrict the activ
ities of the Astoria fishermen.
