BOISE Idaho. March S. (Special.)
The legislature adjourned sine die to
night at 10 o'clock after clearing- away
the general appropriation and general
deficiency hills, the educational and
charitable, penal institutions and Ju
dicial courts' budgets to meet the drain
on the state treasury during the years
1J1S and 1916.
To pay the money so appropriated,
the advalorem tax act setting a maxi
mum limit of UO.OOO was passed. It
is believed that outside revenue from
the Federal Government and the sale
of lands, etc., when added to the
amount raised by the advalorem tax
will be sufficient to meet the expenses
of the bienniura. The saving 'over two
years afro will be about $350,000.
The closing hours of the session were
marked with light-hearted revelry
after the serious business was cleared
away and the audience banked the gal
leries and filled all available space
on the floors of the two houses. Joker

finally approved was I675.99J.50. The
general appropriation bill, to which
the Fenate made amendments, carried

the general deficiency act Ji2.437.74 and
the charitable and penal institutions
$363,000 and J310.000. The Senate
amendments to the general appropria

OLYMPIA, Wash., March 8. (Spe
cial.) The bogey of socialism at the
University of Washington was raised
unexpectedly by Speaker Conner late
today iit the House, causing a half
hour of the liveliest debate the Lcgis
lature has yet seen.
The bill establishing tuition fees at
the university and appropriating $300,
000 for new buildings was under dis
cussion, when Speaker Conner de
clared he would oppose the bill unless
amended to his satisfaction, called Rep
resentative Kelly to the chair, took the
floor and offered an amendment pro
viding that no part of the appropria
tion should be used until the depart
ments of social science and political
economy at the university should have
"The university is now a hotbed of
socialism," Mr. Conner declared. "Presi

ism cannot be eliminated without abol
ishing the political economy and
science departments. He says that to
do this would make the .university the
laughing stock of the country. But
would rather see this than a socialistic
Charge Is Assailed.
There was an immediate rush of both
organization and minority members to
obtain the floor and answer the charge.
Mr. Guic. Republican, and former
Speaker, declared adoption of the Con
ner amendment would mean a return
to middle ages in educational matters.
Mr. Reeves. Democratic leader,- offered
an amendment of his own to discharge
from the university all instructors who
failed to "teach persistently the politi
eal faith, held by the majority of the
members of this House.
Representatives Hartley and Davis,
Republicans, and Lowman, Democrat,
came to the support of the Speaker, but
the general opposition was so strong
that attempt to carry the amendment
finally was dropped and a rollcall,
which the minority sought to obtain,
After the failure of the amendment
Representative McArdle, who had
planned the move with Speaker Conner,
said the organization was satisfied with
the opportunity of calling the atten
tion of the state to conditions at the
university, to show the regents the de
mand for discharge of instructors whose
teachings had given offense.
Governor Lister, Speaker Conner said
during his talk, had promised to re
organize the board of regents so as
to stamp out socialism, but the regents,
he complained, had not taken this

HILLSBORO, Or., March 8
(Special.) George Jerome Pal

known to pioneer steamboat men,
died at his home here Thursday.
He was bora at Gilliade, Branch
County, Michigan. January 11,
1850, and crossed the plains with
his parents in 1852, settling at
Portland. As a young man he
worked on the Columbia, Snake
and Willamette rivers, and for 19
years was a marine engineer run
ning out of Portland.
He married Jennie J. Russell
in Portland September 19, 1880.

tective Agency, San Diego, Cal.;

of F. G. Mitchell, a Hillsboro
franchise was about to expire. This bill
was passed notwithstanding the bitter
opposition of officials of almost' every
city in the state, who saw their own
powers lessened in utility control. To
procure its passage in the Senate, a
referendum clause was added.
Amendment Would Return Power.
The amendment offered by Mr. Wll
son in the House, carried by vote of
57 to 34, rewrites the entire bill, after
the enacting clause, giving city authori
ties complete power to grant indeter
minate franchises. If this amendment
is approvd by the Senate it will mean
a marked victory for the home rule ad
vocates. If it is rejected it probably
will spell the defeat of the Taylor bills.

bill, prohibiting a competing public util

public convenience and necessity from
