Washington Must Co-operate
to Make Bill Effective.
Oregon Beds Kuned by Boat Op
erators Who Spent Their Karn
lugs in Northern State.
st a HOUSE. Salem. Or., Jan. 11
(Special.) Purse eelners, said to
k. .trnvim the natural feeding
grounds off the Oregon coast and de
-.I. menace to the salmon Indus
try of the state, will be made Illegal
if possible. A bill with this eno in
view will be offered by Senator Nor
blad tomorrow, but to be J"""
and to carry out Senator Norblad s
policy, co-operation will be necessary
on the part 01 me itSi...
TK-ro . now sji Oregon law which
prohibits the operation of purse seines
east of a deadline in the Columbia
river from a point on the soutn jeiiy
to a point on the north Jetty. This
law. however, while it keeps the purse
.t' aiuallv operating in the
river, does not prevent this gear from
ravaging the coast.

.ie in deep water, so they are used
along the shore within the marine
league, in dragging along the seines
rip from the ocean floor the vegeta
tion which is the natural food of the
fish and thus, little by little, the feed
ing grounds arc being ruined.
In time, with the destruction of
the feed beds, even though the purses
do not catch all the fish, the denizens
of the deep have to seek other
grou: ds for feed.
Many Small Flak Caught.
The purse seines not only are
scraping the ocean floor of vegeta
tion but they are also catching enor
mous quantities of fish, mostly imma
ture salmon. The Balmon is a salt
water fish until it matures and en
ters the rivers. Just as they are ap
proaching maturity the young almon
' feed in the brackish water off the
Oregon coast until they have attained
their growth, and then they start for
the Columbia. Headed for their
spawning ground. Occasionally im
mature fish enter the river, but only
when thev are caught in a tide and
swept in with salt water.
Of the 186 purse sein boats which
operated off the Oregon coast last
year only five were licensed by Ore
gon AH the others have their home
port in Puget sound. These boat own
ers sweep down to the Oregon coast,
ravage the fish banks and then sell
their catch in the Columbia.
Honey Spent In Seattle.
The operators or these boats spend
their money in Seattle. No supplies
are bought In Astoria. The purse
seiners, consequently, are not only
causing the destruction or ine
ing grounds and catching tons of lm-
t,,r salmon thus preventing re
production and replenishing tho
mtyarr, Kiit fhe monev they earn is
rkimn mnnu and it is spent in
TX7 aahlncrtnn
The Norblad bill will prohibit the
nneratlon of ffurse seines within the
three-mile limit on the Oregon coast
t .la. nrevent the bartering
buving or selling of fish taken by
purse seines by anyone in uregon.
These provisions will force the purse
aelners to carry their catch, if they
take anv bevond the three-mile limit
to California or Washington ports for
State to Get Together.
T ileal the uurse seiners an even
harder blow, the fish commission of
the Oregon legislature will meet soon
with the fish commission of the
Washington legislature at Seattle.
The Washington legislature will be
asked to enact laws preventing the
buying or selling of fish caught in
purse seines in that state. The purse
seiners have a powerful association
and In Washington it will be more of
a local matter for them, and for this
reason concurrence by the Washing
ton legislature may be difficult to ob
tain. Purse seiners have ruined the feed
ing beds off the Washington coast
just as they are now ruining the beds
of Oregon. European countries long
ago discovered the danger to the fish
ing industry caused by the purse
eeines and this kind of gear is not
permitted off the coasts of Denmark,
Sweden, Holland and other seashore
Practically all purae-selne boats oft
the Oregon coast are manned by
aliens, although the captain may be
a citizen.
STATE HOUSE, Salem, Or., Jan. 11.
(Special.) Denton Burdick has
a double, and unless something is
done, there may be trouble before the
end of the session. George L. Myers
of Portland, representative of the
Light & Power Association of Oregon,
Is here in the lobby, just looking
around. Mr. Myera has the same cut
of Jib as Representative Burdick, is
built along the same slender lines,
and, worst of all, wears those horn
rim eyeglasses, which are equivalent
to a four-year course in college.
Wherever Mr. Myers amblea he la
addressed as "Denton" and la being
asked to support or oppose this or
that bill and use his influence for
one thing or another. The resem
blance between the lobbyist and the
lawmaker is so close that even old
political friends of Mr. Burdick are
being fooled. Mr. Burdick, in self
defense, may have to ask passage of
a bill to exclude his double from the
state house.
Oswald West, ex-governor, visited
Salem today and smoked and told
stories in the lobby while his brother-in-law,
Ben Olcott. read his guberna
torial message.
Daniel Boyd of Enterprise, Or.,
dropped in to pay his respects to the
governor. He has just returned from
the east, where he visited the home
of Vice-President-elect Coolidge, and
assured Mr. Coolidge that he did not
want a federal job. hereat Air. u
lidge expressed his relief. Dan's boy
and Coolidge's young son Calvin are
school mates.
Marion county delegation is sore.
Members point out that the delega
tion did not get a blessed committee
of consequence in the senate, and did
not fare any too well In the house,
and the crowning insult was when
eastern Oregon and Multnomah county
elected as doorkeeper of the house a
candidate which the Marion delega
tion did not want
Ben C. Sheldon is more sensitive
than stout gentlemen are supposed to
be. Someone said that he was the
father of more bills than any other
member, or words to that effect. Just
to get even, Sheldon baa taken an
oath not to introduce a single'
measure. He intends giving all of
his suggestions to the roads and
highways committee, or any other
committee where they fit In, and not
sponsor anything.
One of his Ideas is to differentiate
between gasoline for motor cars and
gasoline for other engines. He thinks
the non-motor car gasoline could be
colored. Back of the idea is a new
system of, licensing automobiles by
the amount of gasoline they consume,
rather than horsepower.
tenance and operation of district
courts, offered in the senate today
In the form of a bill by Senator
Hume, provide for increasing the sal
aries of the district judges from 13000
to S4000 a year changing their terms
of office from four to six years and
fixing the suit limit from $300 to $500.
Working In conjunction with Senator
Vinton for the passage of the meas
ure will be Senator Ryan of Clacka
mas county.
Senator Vinton said today that he
had conducted a quiet investigation
of the bond situation and had been
informed that approximately $500,000
had been Invested in foreign bonds
y the people of Yamhill county dur-
ng the last 12 months. In other
counties the drain has been even
more noticeable, according to Senator
Vinton, and the aggregate for the
state for the mst year probably ex
ceeded $25,000,000.
Senator Vinton said his primary
ebject in presenting this bill was to
encourage Oregon people to purchase
local securities, with the result that
much of the money now sent out of
the state would remain here for investment.
There is a law on the Oregon stat
utes providing for the taxation of
lecai municipal securities, but the act
has not been enforced by county as
sessors. This law will be repealed,
if Mr Vinton's bill passes, and will
be supplanted by a provision that no

Southern Pacific Not Responsible
for Grade-Crossing Measure.
STATE HOUSE. Salem, Or., Jan. 11.
(Special.) The Southern Pacific
company, although alarmed as a re
Eult of increasing crossing accidents,
s in no way responsible for the bill
to be introduced in the legislature
requiring all motor vehicle drivers
halt their machines before cross-
ng the tracks of railroad corpora-
ions operating in this state.
This was m.-ide plain in a letter re
ceive! at the offices of the public
service commission here today from
A. T. Mercier, superintendent of the
Southern Pacific lines in Oregdn.
The proposed legislation, according
to Mr. Mercier, originated with the
legislative committee of the Brother
hood of Railroad Engineers, and not
with the officials of any railroad cor
poration. Mr. Mercier said, however,
that the railroads were much lnter-
sted In the matter and hoped that
something would be done to make the
public feel their responsibilities for
the grade-crossing accidents.

both houses will be fixed at $5 a day
in the resolution, which, if adopted,
will be referred to the voters of Ore
gon at the next general election for
approval or rejection.
Senators Hare and Smith tonight
said past experience has proved con
clusively that the 40-dky session was
too short, and that an additional 20
days were needed in case the many
bills were to get the consideration
they deserved.
A similar measure was on the bal
lot at the last election, but was de
feated by less than 3000 votes. There
also was on the ballot at the last elec
tion a measure providing for a di
vided session of lawmakers, and this,

(Special.) Teeth for the criminal
syndicalism law, enacted by the state
legislature in 1919, are provided in a
proposed amendment to be introduced
into the house by Representative
Kubli, one of the authors of the law.
The draft of the amendment was pre
sented to Representative Kubli this
morning by Earl Bernard, deputy dis
trict attorney of Multnomah county.
Courts in passing on the present bill
have ruled that its provisions cover
only recruits joining such organiza
tions as the I. W. W. but do not affect
members who have been affiliated
with this and other alleged radical
organizations prior to the enactment
of the bill.
To correct this error, the proposed
bill changes the line "become a mem
ber" to "be or become a member." It
also makes it unlawful for any per
son to solicit membership in any radi
cal organization.
It is said that proper results In
eradicating and controlling radical

WASHINGTON, Jan. 1L The pres
ent time was described as ripe for
a movement toward limitation of
naval armaments by international
agreement by Secretary Daniels and
acting secretaries of the state de
partment in testimony today before
the house naval affairs committee.
Secretary Daniels declared the
move might properly be made by
President - elect Harding, who, he
said, could "call and hold an in
terna ional disarmament conference
within two months after his inaugu
ration." Secretary Davis said President Wil
son had not called such a conference
because he felt such action would
embarrass the new administration.
Mr. Wilson did not use the powers
granted him in the 1916 act, after
the war, Mr. Daniels added, because
he thought participation by the
United States in the league of na
tions would result.
Big Jatv Held Alternative.
The committee was urged by Mr.
Daniels to authorize continuance of
work on tho uncompleted part of the
1916 three-year naval building pro
gramme until an international agree
ment was reached. He asserted if no
such agreement could be obtained
the United States should build "the
greatest navy in the world."
Asked by Chairman Butler If Great
Britain's geographic situation did not
entitle that nation to command of the
sea, Mr. Daniels stated he did not
subscribe to this belief.
"The United States has the longest
coast line," he said, "and has Alaska
Hawaii, Guam and the Philippines to
protect, as well as a moral obligation
in South America under the Monroe
The pending Borah resolution, pro
posing a 50 per cent reduction ii
naval programmes for the next five
years by the United States, Great
Britain and Japan, was brought into
the discussion by Representative Brit
ten, republican of Illinois, and the
naval secretary opposed the Borah
proposal on the grounds it would
leave this country second in naval
strength and did not take into con
sideration armed land forces.
England Building Submarines,
Chairman Butler asked Mr. Daniel;
to present tomorrow data showing
the naval construction and projected
programmes of Japan and Great
"I want to know what these na
tions are doing," he said.
"All the world knows what the
United States is doing. I hear that
Great Britain is building great sub
marines, each mounting a 13-inch
gun. Perhaps they have abandoned
building big ships because they have
found a better way of destroying
life and property. I would also like
to know if it is true that Japan is
having three big battle cruisers
built in British yards."
Mr. Daniels replied it was his un
derstanding three large Japanese war
vessels and several submarines were
being built in British shipyards and
promised to furnish the other data
Committee members seemed to be
in accord on the proposition of find
ing a way to reduce armaments, but
there was an evident lack of unan
imity of opinion as to the proper
Company Assessed $5000 for Sale
of Adulterated Butter.
For violation of the federal law
regulating the manufacture and sale
of adulterated butter, and providing

Hazelwood company was fined $5000
yesterday morning by Federal Judge
Bean. The defendant company was
allowed 30 days in which to file a bill

"It was clearly indicated." said
Judge Bean in passing sentence, "that
they adulterated this product and
that they marketed It as good, whole
some butter. I believe that the food
laws should be strictly enforced, be
cause the people have the right to
rely upon the brands under which
a product is put out. This company
has violated the pure food laws and
the fine is $2500 on each count under
which the company was convicted.'
The Hazelwood company is in no
wise identified with the Hazelwood
restaurants of the Hazelwood Ice
Cream company.
