OLYMPIA. "Wash., Jan. 26. (Spe
cial.) At the conclusion of the read'
Ing of the governor's civil adminiS'
trative code in the senate this after
noon the bill was referred to the sen
ate members of the special committee
on executive recommendations which
will consider and recommend pro
cosed amendments to the measure
and make a special order for Mon
day afternoon at 2 o clock.
The senate, sitting as a committee
cf the whole, has had the bill under
consideration, section by section, for
three days and- it had been generally
predicted that at the conclusion of
tbe reading, amendments would be
offered from the floor, disposed of
and the bill taken up for final pas
sage on Thursday.
The action this afternoon, taken
upon motion by Senator Carlyon, ad
ministration leader on the floor of the
senate, is the subject of much specu
lation tonight with reference to the
extent of the amendments that will be
recommended by the senate members
of the special committee.
AH May Offer Changes.
Senator Carlyon In offering his mo
tion announced that its adoption
would not preclude any senator from
offering amendments from the floor
of the senate when the bill was re-
ported back by the committee.
Administration leaders are reluc
tant to discuss the amendments other
than those agreed upon to eliminate
Institutions of higher education from
the provisions of the code, and one to
permit continuance of the veteran's
welfare commission, which had been
included in the original bill among
those boards and commissions to be
It is reported, however, that other
amendments will be submitted from
the floor of the senate in the event
they are acted upon unfavorably by
the special committee.
In the discussion of provisions of
the measure today during which L. D.
McArdle, chief author of the bill, and
Charles F. Gleason, assistant attorney-general,
were subjected to in
quiry, criticism of the proposed code
was directed principally at the sec
tion dealing with the fishing industry
and the emergency clause.
Danger to Credit Forecast.
Senator Sinclair of Pacific and Wah-
kiakum questioned the policy of con
ferring upon the proposed fisheries
board legislative powers which, in his
opinion, permitted the board arbitra
rily to establish regulations regarding
the taking of food fish.
He declared that with three men
holding this power bankers would
hesitate to give credit to the men en
gaged in the fishing industry in view
of the fact that there would be no
assurance of permanency of their op
erations. He contended that the sec
tion should be amended to make the
regulations promulgated by the board
.effective after a certain period and
for a certain length of time.
Senator Johnson of Stevens asked
Mr. McArdle whether any budget
based upon the estimated cost of op
erating the state government under
the proposed code had been prepared
or considered by him. Mr. McArdle
said that he had not attempted to
prepare any budget and that tbe task
would be impossible for the reason
that the only salaries fixed by the
cdde were for the directors of de
partments. Same Budget, Says McArdle.
In reply to further questions Mr.
McArdle said that in his opinion an
impropriation of approximately the
same amount as the budget prepared
by the state board of finance for op-
. erating under the present system
should be made and distributed among
the newly created departments ac
cording to the shifted functions to be
performed under the new plan.
He contended that there would .be
a favorable balance at the end of the
blennium from an appropriation equal
to that asked for under the old plan.
With this answer before him. Sena
tor Johnson inquired about the ne
cessity for an emergency clause.
It is contended by some of the op
ponents of the emergency feature
that the code justifies the emergency
section on the ground that the reve
nues of the state are insufficient to
support the state government and ex
isting institutions as at present or
ganized aiul that a reorganization and
consolidation of state departments
necessary in order to brii.g the cost
of maintaining the government with
in the possible revenues of the state.
Kmergency Feature Loses Favor.
w ltn an appropriation to run tne
Ftate u..der the new plan estimated
as equal to that required for operat
ing under the old system, these sena
tors declared the argument for the
emergency feature is without force.
That the emergency feature of the
bill will be tested in the courts was
Indicated at the public hearing on
the measure Tuesday night by For
mer Representative Norman of Pa
cific county. Should the emergency
clause be held invalid by the court,
an effort will be made to send the
measure to a referendum at the next

failed today when the house adopted
the minority .report of the committee
on elections and privileges, which
recommended that Lewis be per
mitted to retain his seat.
A majority of the committee rec
ommended that the seat be declared
vacant and that a special election
be called to fill the vacancy. The
report of the minority was adopted
by a vote of 80 to 13. Mrs. Haskell
based her contest on the ground that

Indians Demand FUh Rights.
Chiefs and tribal leaders of the
Takima Indians arrived at Olympia
today to appear before the joint ju
diciary committee at a public hearing
Thursday afternoon to urge the en
actment of a bill by Senator Morth
Jand of Takima, preserving their
treaty rights to take fish from the
Yakima river at Prosser falls re

The Indians in full tribal regalia
occupied seats in the gallery today , Value
and listened witn interest to the dis

visions of the Morthland bill, which

Heads of Both Institutions Ask for
Additional Building to Care
for Inmates. '
STATE HOUSE, Salem, Or.. Jan. 26.
(Special.) Two new buildings, ag
gregating sso.000, in addition to 130,
350 for maintenance, were requested
at tonight's meeting of the ways and
means committee of the house and
senate by the state school for the
deaf and the state school for the
E. S. Tillinghast, superintendent of
the school for the deaf, appeared be-
iore tne committee and submitted a
budget showing that $77,000 would
be necessary for the maintenance of
the institution during the present bl
ennium. Mr. Tillinghast explained
that the institution was badly crowd
ed at the present time and urged the
erection of a new building, at a cost
of about 125,000. Plans for this struc
ture, he said, called for a two-story
brick building with basement.
J. W. Howard, superintendent of
the state school for the blind, esti
mated that his operating expenses for
the next two years would total $40,
000, while an additional sum of $5500
was needed for replacements and re
pairs. Mr. Howard said that at the
present time the school was crowded
beyond capacity and that many of
the students were sleeping in the
third story of the structure. To rem
edy this condition, Mr. Howard urged
the constructor of a building esti
mated, to cost $65,000.
The state dairy and food depart
ment, through C. L. Hawley, commis
sioner, and J. D. Mickle, previously
in charge of the department, sub
mitted a budget containing items ag
gregating $50,400.
Dr. W. H. Lytle,. state veterinarian,
presented figures showing that he
probably would need between $50,000
and $60,000 to conduct the affairs of
the state sanitary livestock depart
ment during the biennium. In con
nection with Dr. Lytle's presentation
fnembers of the committee indicate
that a bill might be prepared for in
troduction in the legislature author
izing the appointment of deputy vet
erinarians throughout the state and
fixing a reasonable charge for the
testing of herds offered for sale a
private auction. Dr. Lytle estimated
that the passage of such a law prob
ably would save nis department be
tween $2000 and $3000 a year.

OLYMPIA, Wash,, Jan. 26. (Spe
cial.) There Is a probability that
when the Joint fisheries committee
from the Oregon legislature confers
with a similar committee of the
Washington legislature here Satur
day, it will be asked to return to Sa
lem and urge adoption of the revolu
tionary method of regulating fisher
ies about to be put into effect in this
state. This method delegates virtual
law-making powers to the fisheries
In fact, that is about althe Wash
ington committee can do, other than
agree with the Oregon committee on
license fees.
This is stated em the assumption
that by Saturday the administrative
code, which has passed the house,
will have been enacted by .the sen
ate. The code delegates ts a fish
eries board of three appointive mem
bers the power to fix the times when
the taking of the several classes of
fishes is prohibited; to specify and
define the places and water in which
the; taking of the several classes of
fishes is prohibited, and prescribe the
kinds of gear or appliances that may
be used Itf the taking of fishes.
Laws Continue mm Regulations.
The administrative code In its re
lation to the fisheries problem is a
distinct departure from custom.
Washington has a mass of lairs fix
ing open and closed seasons and reg
ulating fisheries in other particulars.
All these laws are to be continued
simply as rules and regulations of
the new fisheries board, and are sub
ject to change at any time by that
Whatever the two legislative com
mittees could agree upon as regards
uniformity of regulations ort the Co
lumbia river naturally might not suit
the new fisheries board. The code
creating this new board may be final
ly passed tomorrow or Friday, but
it will be some time before it can be
enrolled and presented to the gover
While it is pretty generally under
stood who will be named to the fish'
eries board it is not probable that
the governor will ask the members to
sit unofficially with the Oregon com
mittee. It is probable, however, that
the Washington committee will have
two suggestions to make tf the Ore
gon committee, one of which is said
to be in line with the policy of the
prospective fisheries board.
Similar Comnilnslon Suggested..
The suggestions are that Oregon
do not enact any radically repres
sive measures as regards purse sein
ing and that the Oregon committee
recommend creation by the Oregon
legislature of a similarly endowed
fisheries commission that is, that it,
too, create a commission with full
power to enact and change fishing
regulations at any time.
One of the arguments presented in
behalf of this drastic change in meth
ods is that the fishing Industry is both
an International and interstate enter
prise on this coast, in which uni
formity of regulations is desirable.
Washington has fishing interests co
incident with the interests of Oregon
on the Columbia river, and it has
fishing interests coincident with the
fishing Interests of British Columbia.
An authority in British Columbia may
now issue regulations and orders
governing the industry.

Washington Between Two Flrea.
Heretofore any sort of uniformity
in protection and regulation desired
by Washington required negotiation
of a treaty with the Canadian gov
ernment on the north, or a biennial
Interchange of ideas with Oregon on
the south during legislative sessions.
The fisheries commission will have
the authority to confer at any time
with British Columbia authorities
and agree upon uniform regulations.
Those who are engineering legislation
at the present session in Olympia
would like to see a similar case of
confidence and agreement over fish
eries between Washington and Oregon.
Almost a hush descended upon the
opposition to the fisheries section of
the administrative code within the
last few days. Purse seiners were
supposed to be prepared to make a
vigorous fight on it, but the great
lobby that they maintained here two
years ago. when they were menaced
nmriiiitMViir alt n
by antl-allen legislation, is not in
At the last public meeting on the
bill held by the senate several fisher
men were called who had given in
their names as ones desiring to speak,
but they did not respond. Trollers,
however, were represented, but not
in imposing numbers. They oppose
the code. Independent packers had
one speaker who criticised only one
phase of the measure. He desired
that the fisheries board be required
to promulgate Its regulations for each
year on the first of January.
Distinguished lawyers and able
lobbyists representing the large fish
ing companies and corporations hover
about the hotel and capitol lobDy, Dut
they ascert only a policy of watch
ful waiting. They obtained in the
house an amendment which protects
existing fish trap locations from
revocation by the fisheries board, and
maintain that they are interested now
only in seeing that nothing ais
tinctly harmful to their Interests gets

"Big Frogs" Rally Little Ones.
But there are surface Indications
that these big frogs in the pond
have been busy lining up the larger
mass of little ones by obtaining as
surances that the purse seiners are
not to be put out of business. Rep
resentativee of large fishing interests
proclaim an apprehension over the
perpetuity of the industry in Puget
sound, and assert a willingness to
submit to any sort of reasonable re
strictions that will rehabilitate the
Industry. They say that this can be
done better by a board whose mem
bers have practical knowledge of the
ndustry than by a legislature drawn
from Inland as well as coast coun
ties, and beset during eacn sesion
by lobbies of rival fishermen, each
trying to get the best of the other.
They assert the purpose of endeav
oring to dispel factional distrust and
bring about co-operative effort to
make the new system successful.

Whenhe cold snap comes it is important that you use
lubricating oil having a low cold test. Zerolene No. 1, No.
3 and No. 5 are low cold test oils. They remain fluid and
feed properly even when the temperature is belpw freezing.
Poor cold test oils congeal at freezing temperatures.
This causes hard starting with excessive drain on your
storage battery. When congealed, the oil cannot be splashed
or pumped to the bearing surfaces in sufficient quantities,
and there will be lack of lubrication until the oil has been
warmed by the heat of the engine. During this time there
will be loss of power and poor acceleration. Excessive wear
or even burned bearings and scored cylinders may result.
Drain your crankcase and fill with Zerolene as recom
mended for winter use in the Zerolene Correct Lubrication
Chart and solve your cold weather lubrication problems.
