LEVY TO BE MADE ON ALL
Exemption for Five Years Proposed
for All Water Power Plants
Built Under Terms of Bills.
Others to Pay on Horsepower.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
Ineton. Jan. 24. If Congress can be in
duced to adopt the Shields amendment
to the general revenue bill that Is now
a. nart of the Administration's legisla
tive programme, a way may be found
for passing both of the pending water
power bills that seem otherwise to face
almost certain defeat. Particularly is
.this true, In view of the fact that Pres
ident Wilson, at recent conferences, has
Impressed upon the leaders of the Sen
ate and House the importance of un
locking the water-power resources of
The Shields amendment to the tax
hill provides that all producers of
water power in the United States shall
pay an excise tax of 10 cents per horse
power on all power generated and sold
or usied. This tax is to apply to exist
ing power plants, as well as to plants
to be built in the future, but as to
power plants built under the terms of
cither of the pending bills, the amend
ment stipulates that they shall be ex
empt . from ttte 10-cent tax for five
years after beKinnlng operation.
The purpose of Senator Shields, in
offering this amendment, is to Impose
a flat tax of 10 cents per horsepower
on all water power companies,thls tax
to be in lieu of any tax or royalty
which the advocates of the pending
water power bills have proposed. While
the Senator in his amendment stipu
lates a tax of 10 cehts per horsepower,
he has explained that he is not wedded
to tli lit specific amount, but he is eager
to have the principles of his amend'
metkt laid down, so that the tax or roy
alty features of the Shields and Myers
bills may be eliminated. It is this fea
ture, more than any other, that has led
to controversy between the Senate and
House, and the Shields plan of taxing
all power companies seems to afford
an opening for a compromise. More
than that, it places all power develop
ment on an equal footing, according to
Senator Shields, in that the new power
plants will be subject to no greater
burden than is imposed upon plants
already established, and therefore be
yond the reach of the pending water

Testimony was concluded yesterday
afternoon in the hearing held before
Walter N. Brown, examiner for the
Interstate Commerce Commission, of
the Empress Coal Company, which
seeks a through rate of il a ton on
its product, mined a short distance
east of Centralia, Wash., to Portland.
The O.-W. R. & N. Company is defend

Yesterday's inquiry centered upon the
question whether the Eastern Railway
& Lumber Company, which operates
between Centralia and ' its properties
In Eastern Lewis County, is engaged
in interstate commerce. It is the con
tention of the company that? it is not
a common carrier such as would bring
it under the regulations of the Inter
state Commerce Commission" or even

It does transport coal, however, for

Officials of the Eastern Railway &
Lumber Company testified yesterday
that the operation of the line is inci
dental to the logging and lumbering
operations of the company, that the
trains are not run on schedule, that
tariffs are not filed with either the
Interstate Commerce Commission or
the Washington Railroad Commission,
that the hours of service laws, effec
tive on regular railroads, are not in
effect and that safety requirements of
other lines are not met.
The railroad has 12 logging cars and
two geared logging locomotives as Its
equipment. It was stated. It was tes
tified that a maximum train of four
cars loaded with coal could be hauled
over the hill on the line, that five cars
were enough to stall the engines at
that, point. Passenger fares for the
past year reached a total of 1154.
Reed F. Hubbard, secretary f the
company, testified that at no time
had the line been regarded as anything
other than a private railroad and none
of the things required by the Interstate
Commerce Commission had been per
formed as with other railroads. It
was merely run as a department of the
lumber company, he said.

ramento critic useiVto express his admiration for the . playing of the
Flonzaley Quartet, which will give a recital at the Heilig February
3 under the direction of Steers & Coman.
"The quartet's work," said he, "is the perfection of art wrapped in a
cloak of simplicity and modesty. No pyrotechnics to catch the fancy
and imagination, but an entire evening of serious muslo thought -out
by a master mind so understood in all Its wonderful meaning and so
convincingly given that it could not fail to reach the hearts and minds
of the audience."

about a year to complete it.

from Hadfields had been received on
