0 new bills was received, half a dozen
important memorials and resolutions
were disposed of and a bis; volume of
routine business was transacted.
The House ran twice through Its reg
ular order of business and most of
the day's new bills were sent to com
A big hatch of committee reports
came in this morning and half a dozen
measures were sent to oblivion over
the indefinite postponement route.
Appropriation Dills Reported.
The first lot of appropriation bills
came in today from the ways and
means committee. They provide rev
enue for the conduct of the executive,
secretary of state and treasury de
partments, for the special apprehension
of criminals, the State Training School,
the School for the Deaf, the Attorney
General's office and the Cipltol and
Supreme Court buildings. The Item
ized appropriations made for each or
these departments were reported In re
cent issues of The Oregonlan.
One of the most-talked-of pieces of
legislation proposed at this session was
the bill by Representative "Wlllett
which would remove the property quali
fication from voters at Bchool elections.
Under the present law those people who
do not own any property cannot vote.
Sterilization Bill Held t'p.
Representative Peck's sterilization
bill came up for third reading today.
but because it carries an appropriation
It could not be considered before get
ting the approval of the ways and
means committee. Peck Insisted, how.
ever, that it first go to the committee
on medicine, deatistry and pharmacy,
and It was so ordered.
Members today began calling atten
tion to the obvious delay in getting
bills through the House and declared
at the time, that the situation appears
to be little better over in the Senate.
This is the third week of the session
and today is the 20th day the last day
under the rules in which bills can be
introduced without a two-thirds vote
This rule does not apply, however, to
appropriation bills coming from the
ways and means committee.
Representative Mackay told the
House today that he would have to
ask for the two-thirds consent next
week to Introduce the Insurance code,
which has been prepared by the code
committee and which now Is being re
vised by the Joint House and Senate
Bill to "Vote Straight Ticket" Framed.
Representatives Kubll and Childs are
preparing a new election bill that they
probably will enter in the House to
morrow. It would restore the straight
party tickets to the ballot, putting all
the candidates of the one party in the
same column. Those voters who might
want to vote for all the candidates of
the same party would need to make
but one mark on the ballot. The same
kind of a voting system prevailed here
decade or so ago, and It Is said to
be in use in some other states.
Representative Burdick introduced a
bill today providing for the appoint
ment of the bee inspectors In each of
the several counties requiring them.
The County Court Is to appoint the in
spector upon written application o
seven or more persons engaged In the
culture of bees. One object of the bill
is to secure a more standard grade o
honey and to prevent the sale of in
fected bees and their products.

STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Or.. Jan. 25,
(Special.) Any community on the
Pacific Coast that wants its harbor im
proved, a naval base established or some
Jetties or seawalls built, just come to
the Oregon Legislature.
It isn't necessary even that the har
bor be in Oregon, for the House this
raornipff went on record for an appro
priation of 390.000 for harbor improve
ments way down at Crescent City, CaL
It wasn't Oregon's money' anyway,
and California, wants the improvement,
so the legislators said. "Tea, boys, you
can have it."
All that they need to do now Is to
get Congress to appropriate the money.
The House was equally liberal about
appropriations for Oregon harbors.
They adopted Senator Leincnweber's
memorial asking Congress to appro
priate $3,000,000 for a naval base at
Astoria and Representative Tlchenor's
memorial for a naval base at Port Or-
ford. In the case of Port Orford the
boys left the size of the appropriation
to the discretion of Congress. Any
email favors will be thankfully received.

STATE CAPITOL., Salem, Or., Jan. 23.
(Special.) Politics in connection with
the Port of Portland Commission and
the effort to unseat Alfred Tucker
cropped out at a meeting today of the
Multnomah delegation, when Represen
tative Mann moved that George Kelly,
former member of the Fish and Game
Commission, be the choice of the dele
gation for Mr. Tucker's place.
Only a few members of thp delegation
were present and Senator Huston point
ed out that the question couldn't be
considered Just then. Mann then said
that he would like to have the delega
tion consider Mr. Kelly for the place.
Under the state law the Legislature
names the members of the Port of
Portland Commission. Mr. Tucker was
appointed some months ago by the
other Commissioners to fill a vacancy
and his appointment must be confirmed
by the Legislature.
Two members of the Commission,
Caotaln E. W. Spencer and Captain Pat
terson, are understood to be very un
friendly to Mr. Tucker and to be work
ing to have the Legislature oust him.
Today wes the first time, however.
that Mr. Kelly has been brought out
puolicly for the place.
The majority of the Port of Portland
Commission is warmly in favor-of the
confirmation of Mr. Tucker on the
Commission. The Legislature generally
follows the recommendation of the
Multnomah delegation relative to the
Commission. Now that the issue has
baen precipitated a caucus probably
will be held soon by the delegation to
decide who shall te recommended.
"I am not looking for any office or
for any trouble. said Mr. Kelly to-
night. He added that his being here
had nothing to do with the mention of
his name at the delegation meeting.
"I am not a candidate for the Port
of Portland Commission. I have no
Idea that the position will be offered
to me, so cannot say what I would do
in such a contingency.

grew to its present vast size of sixty
one stores by selling a line of shoes
that were unequaled at our prices.

and $2.95. For years we have jealously
guarded our premiership and today we stand
alone in thejealm of shoe retailing on the
pedestal of high quality and low prices.

no measure hampered our leadership.
Comparatively speaking, we are fur
ther ahead of our competitors at this
time than ever before.
In spite of present conditions, toe
still maintain our conservative lines
and popular styles at $2.50 and $2.95,
aside front our specialty lines at $3.45,
$3.95, $4.45 to $5.95.
