STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Or., Jan. 11.
(Special.) One of the most certain
things In the world' at this stage of
the session, at least, is that the Sen
ate doesn't intend to let anybody in
veigle it into an argument, much less
a Jangle, over the prohibition issue.
Let any member so much as breathe
the word "prohibition," no matter how
softly, and 29 Senators straightway sit
upright in their chairs, compress theh
llps and make haste to vote "Aye" on
the question, whatever it is.
Do they argue? Nary a quibble. No
body even discusses it, except, possibly,
the member who proposed the question,
and he touches only the very high
spots. All he has to do 13 to say. "Mr.
President and Senators, this is a Joint
memorial, or a resolution, or a bill
dealing with the prohibition question,"
and then and thereupon the vote la as
good as unanimous in its favor.
Prohibition Idea Prevails.
Apparently the Senators have made
up their minds' that prohibition is here,
that instead of there being less prohibi
tion in future there is going to be
more, and that they might just as well
save themselves unnecessary trouble
and reproaches by passing any prohi
bition measures the people want, or
the Senators think they want, without
This attitude of the Senatorial mind
was well illustrated this morning when
two more of Senator Kddy's joint me
morials to Congress on the K-ational
prohibition issue came up for adoption.
One of these memorials petitions Con
gress to make haste and submit to the
states for ratification a National pro
hibition law. The other memorial urges
Congress to pass a law barring liquor
advertisements from the malls.
Both Adopted In 10 Minutes.
There have been sessions of the Leg
islature, and not so very long ago,
either, when a memorial of thl3 kind
would have been good for half a day's
Impassioned talk. Today it took the
Senate Just 10 minutes to adopt them
both by unanimous vote.
Not a Senator so much as opened his
heead about either memorial except
Senator Eddy, their sponsor, who briefly
explained them, and Senator Huston,
who asked a question that apparently
was answered to his deepest satisfac
tion, for he responded on rollcall with
a loud "aye."
One memorial paBsed with 27 ayes
and the other with 28 ayes, another
Senator having come Into the chamber.
Both memorials now go over to- the
House, which will undoubtedly pass
them, but probably not with the same
As will be remembered, the first
measure of any kind considered by both
Houses at this session was another
Joint memorial by Senator Eddy, peti
tioning Congress to vote the District
of Columbia dry. The Senate put it
through unanimously, but seven Rep
resentatives voted no.

Nicholas J. Haas, of the Secre
tary of State's office, has had
charge of furnishing supplies,
and the 15th session with which
he has been connected. With the
possible exception of Charles
Holstrom, night watchman at the
building, Mr. Haas is the oldest
employe about the Capitol now In
the state's service. He Is mana
ger of the notarial, law book, fil
ing, supply and recording de
partments of the Secretary of
State's office and he probably
knows more Individual legislators
and ex-legislators than any man
in Oregon. In 1889 he started his
connection with legislatures when
he served as mailing clerk in the
House. He went into the Secre
tary of State's office under Secre
tary McBrlde, and has served un
der Secretaries Kincald, Dunbar,
Benson and Olcott.

STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Or.. Jan.
11. (Special.) The probe of the
Joint ways and means committee
into the traevllng expenses of va
rious state officials, including Gov
ernor Withycombe. Secretary of State
Olcott and State Treasurer Kay, will
show that the Governor now has an un
expended balance of 6 cents In his
traveling fund of $1000 appropriated
two years ago; that the Secretary of
State has an unexpended balance of
$225.40 from a $500 appropriation and
the State Treasurer an unexpended bal
ance of $360.75 from an aDDrourlat ion
A complete and detailed statement of
all the money expended by state offi
cials and employes for traveling ex
penses during the years 1915 and 1916
is called for In a resolution dropped
Into the House hopper this af tern Aon
by Representative Bean, of Lane.
The resolution calls attention to the
fact that the several officers and de
partments are asking appropriations
for traveling expenses and continues
by pointing out that there Is no de
tailed statement in the reports of ex
pendltures for traveling during the
last two years. v
A similar demand has gone forth
from the Joint ways and means com
mittees, but Representative Bean wants
this information for members of the
Numerous demands' made on the Gov
ernor account for the greater expendi
tures made by that official in his travel
ing expense account. In addition, the
question of the Governors' conference
will qome before -the Legislature. While
the executive did not attend the con
ference last year, the year before he
went to the conference at Salt Lake,
and it Is considered here as fitting that
the state should be represented at such
Interstate conferences of the executives.
It Is known that the Governor has
expended a considerable sum of money
from his own pocket for traveling ex
penses. Both the Secretary of State and State
Treasurer expressed themselves today
as having no objection if the ways and
means committee decides to cut down
their traveling expenses. Mr. Olcott
said he would be willing to have it re
duced to half of the former appropri
ation and Mr. Kay said a reduction to
$300 would leave him sufficient for the
necessary traveling expenses. As mem
bers of the board they are required to
v4sit state institutions outside of Sa
lem, it is possible tor' the members of
the board to draw upon various other
accounts for traveling expenses'under
the law when their trips are made In
connection with the work for which
such funds are provided, but it has been
the concensus of opinion that It would
be preferable to have a stipulated sum
for traveling expenses.
llurlburt's Bin Is Introduced.
STATE CAPITOL, Salem. Or.. Jan. 11.
(Special.) The measure advocated
by Sheriff Hurlburt, of Multnomah
County, to take out of the hands of
the fenerur the reeding of county pris
oners and all attendant profit there
on, which has been a source of. much
good revenue to Sheriff's in the past,
was Introduced today by Senator Far
rell, of the Multnomah delegation. The
bill is limited to counties of 100.000 or
over. The county either may feed the
prisoners by direct appropriation, or by
letting a contract to a low bidder un
der Its provisions.

BONE-DRY BILL UP
TO OLIPIA HOUSE
Asotin Representative Spon
sors Strict Measure
HOPE FOR PASSAGE SEEN
If Bill Contains No Emergency Sec
tion It Can Be Referred, Which,
It Is Believed, Would Re
sult in Its Approval.
6TATE CAPITOL, Olympia, Wash.,
Jan. 11. (Special.) Straight prohibi
tion as a legislative issue was for
mally launched In the House today by
E. E.. Halsey, of Asotin, with the In
troduction of a "bone-dry" bill indorsed
by the Anti-Saloon League.
If passed the bill will prohibit all
shipments of intoxicating liquor of any
kind into the state, except for sacra
mental purposes and provides for
public hearings before the County Audi
tor before it may be obtained in this
manner. The bill limits alcohol Im
portations to druggists and manufac
turing druggists to be for mechanical
purposes only. Penalties for the first
offense are fixed at from $99 to $250 or
30 to 90 days in Jail; $200 to $500 for
the second offense and 30 days to six
months imprisonment, while the third
offense is made a prison penalty of
from one to five years.
Representative Halsey Confident
If the bill is passed with an emer
gency clause it will go into effect im
mediately and cannot be sent to a ref
erendum. If referred, it is generally
believed that the bill will pass.
Sentiment of the controling organiza
tion of the House is understood to be
opposed to passage at this session, on
the argument that the present law is
sufficient for the present and oppor
tunity should be taken to note the
working of total prohibition in other
states that have adopted it. Represen
tative Halsey said, however, that a fair
chance has been promised the bill by
the rules committee and he is con
fident that It will meet no fatal op
position. Interest In the dry prospect was
further increased today, when W. W.
Connor, Speaker last session, and al
ways heretofore classed as a wet, ad
dressed the House under courtesy and
mentioned prohibition as one issue the
people had overwhelmingly expressed
themselves In favor of; a sentiment, he
said, the Legislature could not do
otherwise than follow.
Military Training I'reed.
Another bill provocative of hot con
tention was offered today by Repre
sentative Zednick. providing for com
pulsory military training In high schools
for boys, with nursing and domestic
hygiene courses for girls. Instructors
are to be employed on the same basis
as other teachers, approval of the
courses adopted being left subject to
the Adjutant-General. Two hours a
week are set aeide for military Instruc
tion and the cost is limited to $3 per
capita of high schools" enrollment in
each district, the latter to furnish all
books and equipment.
The Senate passed the short session
today In wrangling over a resolution
by Senator Landon, by which books will
be kept on each Senator as to the cost
of legislation imposed by the Introduc
tion of bills. The regulation finally
passed by a vote of 35 to 1. It is
accepted as a handy means of avoiding
the introduction of bills offered by
lobbyists and privato interests gener
ally. Roads' Committee Large.
Southwestern and Central Washing
ton legislators attained influential po
sition by the announcement of com
mittee assignments today in both
chambers. This Is especially true of
the powerful roads committee in the
House, which contains 31 members and
will have the disposal of millions of
dollars' worth of road improvement.
HOL'SE HITS SLOW PACE
Total of Only 55 Measures so Far
Have Made Appearance.
STATE CAPITOL. Salem, Or.. Jan. 11.
(Special.) Business in the House
continues to drag. Bills are slow in
coming in and some of the commit
tees have no work to do.
Only 11 bills made their appearance
today, and three of those would not
have come In had not the House re
verted to the order of introduction and
first reading of bills this afternoon to
permit Representative Lewis to drop
three measures into the hopper. A total
of 55 bills now are in the House.
Two House bills already have run
their course through committee and
are awaiting third reading. They are
No. 6. by Bowman, regulating stock
running at large, and No. 10, by Forbes
and Burdlck, fixing the time for hold
ing court in the Eighteenth District.
Among the House bills introduced
today is one appropriating $25,000 to
defray the expenses of the present ses

BAR FOSTERS BILLS
Four Drafted Providing for
COST REPORTS PROPOSED
Changes Simplifying and Hasten
ing Court Proceedings Aim and
Pensioning of Supreme Jus
tices Also Is Advocated. .
Four bills providing changes, and ad
ditions in the state Judicial laws have
been forwarded to the House and Sen
ate Judiciary committees of the Legis
lature by the legislative committee of
the Oregon Bar Association. The bills
make changes and additions to existing
laws which are considered Important.
The committee which drafted the bills
comprises Charles H. Carey, John H.
Hall, George H. Davis and W. D.
The bills provide for the making of
a quarterly report by each County
Clerk for filing with the Secretary of
State of all Judicial business and the
expense Incident thereto; for new pro
ceedings and limitations regarding ap
peals to the State Supremo Court; for
changes In procedure where a cause is
brought on the wrong side of the
court: for the retirement and pension
ing of Justices of the Supreme Court
In addition to the four bills the com
mittee recommended favorable action
on a concurrent resolution introduced
In the Senate by Senator Conrad P.
Olson providing for the appointment
of a commission on law reform to serve
without pay. The measure would have
the Supreme Court appoint a com
mission to report at the next session
of the Legislature. The committee says
the purpose is to simplify Judicial prac
tice and procedure and eliminate some
expense now necessary in court pro
ceedings. Cost to Be Studied.
As a part of these changes the Bar
Association committee recommends the
enactment of the bill regarding reports
by counties of Judicial business. This,
together with statements of the ex
pense, will be of value for study and
comparisons. There Is no law cover
ing the subject now, it is said.
. The bill relating to appeals to the
Supreme Court is aimed to relieve con
gestion in the court. The measure
would eliminate appeals in cases in
volving less than $500 unless some
question of importance is included. The
committee says, in a report sent with
the bills, that the amendment proposed
has been carefully drawn to accom
plish this purpose and at the same
time make it practicable to appeal In
minor cases where the appeal should
The bill regarding changes In pro
cedure would amend section 390 of the
code. The amendment. If passed, will
permit equitable defenses to be pleaded
in actions at law, and to transfer cases
without losing Jurisdiction under ex
isting law or being compelled to dis
miss them without a final determina
tion Pensioning; Justices Proposed.
The bill for the retirement of Jus
tices of the Supreme Court follows the
Federal statute on the same subject
It provides for retirement on a salary
of $3000 a year at the age of 70 years.
The bill carries an additional provision
to take care of Justices who may be
compelled to retire from the bench
after long service, because of total in
capacitation by illness.
"In the nature of the work on this
bench." says the committee's report,
"Judges are unable to give time and
attention to the accumulation of an
estate and are likely to be left with
out provision for their old age." The
bill would allow justices who are re
tired in this way an annual salary of
$3000, provided the ludge has been on
the bench for 10 consecutive years
prior to his reaching the age of 70. In
the case of a Judge being retired for
physical disability he would be entitled,
to a pension If he has served for nine
The committee makes a request that
the four bills. If approved by the House
and Senate committees, be Introduced
by these committees as committee bills.
Members of the committee offer to ap
pear before the Legislative committees
or the Legislative Assembly as a whole
to ulscuss the bills.

BILIi AIMEI AT DUCK HAITrXCJ
Senate Measure Apparently Directed
at Multnomah Hunters.
STATE CAPITOL, Salem. Jan. 11.
(Special.) A measure introduced to
day by Senator Diniick prohibits any
person from feeding wild ducks with
wheat or other food with intent to at
tract them so as to shoot them. The
bill makes it a misdemeanor punishable
by fine of toO to or imprisonment
of 30 days to bait wild ducks in this
manner or to shoot them within 00
yards of any duck lake so baited.
This measure is likely to draw the
ire of Multnomah County sportsmen,
against whom it seems to be directed.
There has been complaint from the
southern part of the state that the
practice of the northern sportsmen in
feeding ducks keeps the ducks there
so long that they migrate later than
normally and do not stop en route,
thus depriving the southern sportsmen
of their duck hunting.
