PARTY MEASURES PENDING
Labor Legislation Likely to Be
rassed Up to KiecUtive at Last
Minute Jitney and Port
Hearings Set for Today.
OLYMPIA. Wash, March 7. (Spe
cial.) When the Washington Legisla
ture reconvenes Monday morning for
the final four days of Its 14th session,
interest promises to be about evenly
divided between legislative action on
the mass of bills awaiting: attention
and the action of Governor Lister on
bills already presented to bim for sis
nature. The Democratic-Progressive minority
In both houses has been threatening
the Republican majority that executive
disapproval will be meted to several
bills of ths organization programme,
a,nd an interest considerably more than
academic attaches to the question of
whether this threat will be carried out
and. If so. whether the majority ma
chinery will hold solid to provide the
necessary ' two-thirds vote in each
house to pass measures over the veto.
The only measures of considerable
importance among those signed are
H. B. No. 170, the new fish code offered
by the fi.aheries operators. Increasing
their licenses, and H. B. No. 119, the
universal four-year registration law

There are seven Senate bills and 1!
House bills awaiting approval of the
Governor, Including some of the most
Important measures under consldera
lion during the session.
The veto Is most likely to be affixed
to aome election bills, as these were
Republican party measures and met
with strong minority opposition during
their passage through both houses.
There are two other measures among
those listed which have been subject to
some criticism, and on both of which
the Governor will hold public hearings
tomorrow before deciding upon action
These are the Jitney bus bill, require
ments of which, operators allege, would
practically put all machines out of
business, and the port district bill. The
King County delegation In the Legisla
ture, with three or four exceptions, is
unanimously against the present Seat
tie Port Commission, and the bill is
Intended to take control of the port
district out of the hands of these men.
The most important bills for guber
natorial action left unsettled are tnose
dealing with labor questions. The
Kleeb first-aid bill, drafted by employ
crs, has passed the Senate, and the
House is now facing the choice of
passing this bill, which the Governor
will veto, taking no action at alL
which , would have the same ultimate
effect, or substituting the bill drafted
by Governor Lister's commission.
If no bill is passed or if the Kleeb
bill is passed and vetoed, a measure
suitable to the Governor and organized
labor probably will be Initiated, so the
House Is facing a difficult question in
In decision of other labor matters
the Legislature will put some difficult
questions before the Governor. Meas
ures already passed by one house or
the other, or by both in slightly dif
ferent form. Include an antl-picketing
bill and amendments to the eight-hour
public works law, the eight-hour law
for women and the full-crew bill,
fought bitterly by organized labor.
Around each of these measures a sharp
' fight has been waged and the ap
parent object of legislative leaders. In
leaving these measures to reach the
Governor during the last week of the
session, is to thrust responsibility for
final decision upon the executive.

.TAX-COLLECTION BILL VAIN
Vmatilla Court lenies Treasurer
Pay for Extra Services.
PENDLETON'. Or.. March 7. (Spe
cial.) An echo of the recent con
troversy in the Legislature as to
whether the County Treasurer or Sher
iff should be the collector of taxes in
Oregon was heard In the County Court
Friday. It came up when County
Treasurer Bradley presented a bill for
$.",( for extra services rendered in col
lecting the 1913 taxes. The bill was
not allowed by the members of the
Court, who seemed to think the county
did its part when it allowed the Treas
urer extra clerical assistance.
The Treasurer's salary is only $1200
a year and, in addition to holding that
this sum is inadequate, Mr. Bradley
contends that the extra time he was
compelled to put in and the extra re
sponsibility entitle him to the addi
tional compensation requested.

HONOR CAMP SYSTEM HIT
Washington House Passes BUI For
bidding Convict Labor on Roads.
OLYMPIA. Wash.. March 7. (Spe

last night passed the Sly bill prohibit
ing use of convicts on road work.
The bill Is aimed at the honor camp
system Inaugurated a little more than
a year ago by Governor Lister, under
which convicts have been paid 60 cents
a day for their labor, the system being
criticised as expensive.

BT ADDISON BENNETT.
HEN the news came over the
ires that one of the final acts
the late Congress was to raise
the rank of T. AL Anderson from Briga
dier-General to Major-General. It gave
much satisfaction to many Portlanders,
for General Anderson has been a resi
dent of this city since his retirement
from active service, in January, 1903.
Few men now livine- took a more
active part Inrahe Civil War than Gen
eral Anderson. When the first gun
was fired at Fort Sumter, the com
mandant being General Robert Ander
son, an uncle of Thomas M. Anderson,
an attorney then 26 years of age, prac
ticing law at Newport, Ky., the young
lawyer hastened to Cincinnati to offer
his services to his country. Sumter
fell April 13. On the 14th young Ander
son affixed his signature to the rolls
of the Army, but had to wait until the
-0th for a recruiting officer to muster
him in as a private in the Sixth Ohio
He was transferred to the Regular
Army May 7 and sent to Carlisle to join
the Fifth Cavalry as a Second Lieuten
ant, the Colonel of this regiment being I
George H. Thomas, later one of the
prominent commanders of the Northern
Much Service Seen.
To follow the young Lieutenant
through the successive grades between
Lieutenant and Brigadier-General, to
trace labors from May 14, 1861, to the
date of his retirement In 1900, covering
a period of almost 40 years, would be
to recapitulate many pages of the his
tury of the country and to take you
over battlefields from Chancellorsvllle
to the Philippines. And yet General
Anderson, now rounding out his 79th
year, is today hale, hearty and rugged,
as one might wish for a hero deserving
so much from his fellow countrymen
In looking calmly at General Ander
son s record one can see that at all
times when the critical moment arrived
for signal service on behalf of his
country he was as much diplomat as
soldier. When sent to Vancouver Bar
racs as commander in 18S6 he found
sort of partnership existing as to thej
section of land occupied by the post
jointly with the Catholic schools and
missions, and each partner a claimant
to the title. General Gibbon was in
command of the department, conse
quently the superior officer.- General
Anderson asked him how it was the
church buildings were there and that
the parade and drill grounds of his
troops were alternately the play
grounds of the school children and the
private pathways of the civilians. Gen
eral Gibbon's answer was that these
occupants claimed title to the land, to
which General Anderson demurred.
Later he ejected every civilian and
kept them off the ground, in which ac
tion he was upheld by the Supreme
Court of the United States.
British Flag Ordered Down.
When he was sent to Alaska as com
mandant of the district of the Lynn
Canal, with headquarters at Skagway,
he found there a British officer with
headquarters already established, over
which flew the Britisli flag. Upon in
quiry General Anderson found that
Britain claimed every inch of the ter
ritory down to the sea. General
Anderson caused the flag to be hauled
down and the office removed to the
top of the hill to the north, where the
waters flowed to the Klondike. At
first the officer demurred, as he had
two companies of mounted police about
to arrive by boat. General Anderson
put a quietus on the whole matter and
perhaps saved that entire section to
Uncle Sam by refusing to allow the
boat with the police on board to make
Short was his career in Alaska, for
on his way there, at Seattle, he heard
of the blowing up of the 'Maine in
Havana harbor. He Immediately wrote
to General Corbin, chief of staff at
Washington: "This Maine incident
looks like war; I don't want to be
cooped up In Alaska when there is
fighting to do. The reply quickly
came back: "If there Is fighting to do
you will soon have a band in it."
SalllBg Orders Brief.
So when war was declared we find

eight hundred men he had and a "war
chest" of 6000 silver dollars, and orders
from headquarters: "Take this and
your troops and go and do the best
you can." More than likely the Secre
taries at Washington knew that ho
matter what embroglios might arise.
General Anderson would be equal to
One of the first interviews sought
after his arrival was by Aguinaldo. who
was self-appointed dictator of the is-
ands. Dewey was present and ne naa
evidently given the Filipino some sort
of comfort, for he said not a word in
the interview. "Are you going to rec
ognise my authority over these islands"
was the first inquiry from the "aicta
I am a soldier at the head of a
small army; I am here to keep the
peace and Intend to keep it and have
nothing Jo do with civil affairs or af
fairs of diplomacy." Which was the
highest form of diplomacy that words
could have expressed.
Two of the principal battles In which
General Anderson participated during
the Civil War were Chancellorsviu
nt Knnttnvl vanta. both in Virginia. I
tha latter he was in that portion of
th. battle called in history "the blood
angle." In both of these battles he
was wounded, in the first a minie ball

other he was shot through the leg and

To look at General Anderson today
vou would take him for a man oi o,
you might think from his appearance
that he was a dapper, but successful
business man, who had just emerged
from the hands of the tailor, me nao

a iriniv nulet srentleman of the
old schocl dignified, .silent when
necessary and outspoken as occasion
demands. General Anderson is passing
th. evenlnir of his life as the com
mandant of the Loyal Legion, a society
composed of the officers wno iook
part in the Civil War and their lineal
descendants. A pitifully small society,
for there are only four or five old
heroes left, but a few dozen of their
descendants are in Oregon.
Sorrow la Visitor.
When I asked General Anderson If
his wife were yet living, a great sad
ness came into his eyes as he told
me she had left him for the better
land nearly a' year ago. His home
keeper is his daughter, Elizabeth, the
widow of the late Charles Gauld, and
her three children make the beautiful
home on Everett street bright, while
his confidential companion is hia son,
Van. His other children are scat
tered, but all doing well, and a great
comfort to their father.
Everybody who reads this will be
glad that congress oia our ioiiow
citizen the honor of elevating his rank
even though it did not increase his
emoluments. It was but tardy jus
tice, if it can be called justice to dole
out to a hero such scanty praise so
long after it was due. But the dap-

WHAT SCIATICA IS
There Is something terrifying about
the word sciatica. Yet sciatica Is
nothing but neuralgia of th sciatic
nerve and neuralgia Is an Inflamma
tion caused by lack of nourishment.
Application of dry heat as hot sand
bags or flannel to tli course of ths
Inflamed nerve often quiets tho pain
but it doea not feed the nerve. It is
temporary relief, a good thing to know
about, but not a romedy.
What causes the nerve starvation
that results in neuralgia and sciatica
and how may It be corrected?
The most common cause Is a run
down physical system and a frequent
exciting cause is exposure to cold.
Thin blood la often at fault. It la
through the blood that the nerve get
their nourishment. Mortal man know
of no other way or getting nourish
ment to a nerve. Therefor whan the
blood gets thin and fails to feed th
nerves they show their resentment by
becoming inflamed. Try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills at thla stage and see how
the inflammation subsides as th en
riched blood carries to the starved
nerves the elements they need.
