Argument That AH Measures for
More Compensation Be Consid
ered at Once Is I'sclcss.
STATU HOCSK, Salem. Or.. Feb. 13.
(Special.) The senate, over the
protest of Senator Strayer, who
argued that all bills carrying in
creased compensation for state offi
cials should) be considered at the
came time, today approved seven
alary measures originating in the
upper house. Another bill receiving
favorable consideration applies to
Umatilla county but Its operation is
contingent upon the approval of the
measure by the voters there at the
next special or general election.
Two of the bills were introduced
T Senator Bell, chairman of the
committee created at the Special ses
sion of the legislature in January, I
ivi). to investigate tne compensa
tion received by state and county
officials. One of these measures
would increase the annual salary of
the state superintendent of schools
from J3CHI0 to J4UO0. while the other
bill would increase the compensation
of the 9tate corporation commis
sioner from J3000 to J2600 a year.
Careful Stndy Drrlared Made.

creasing the compensation of the
etate superintendent of schools. Sen
ator Beil said the committee had
made a careful study of the duties
of this department and that the mem
bers of the body were almost unani
mously agreed that the official was
entitled to a more lucrative salary.
He said it had first been suggested
that the school superintendent should
receive JljOO a year, but that this
amount later was reduced to 14000
Sentaor Strayer. while not averring
that he was adverse to passage of the
salary hills, said it was his opinion
that all measures inereasing the com
pensation of state officers should be
presented at the same time in order
that the members of the senate might
have an opportunity to determine the
extent of the proposed advances and
their effect on the states finances. A
motion (o this effect was made by
Senator Strayer. but was defeated.

Similar objection was made by Sen
ator Strayer relative to the bill pro

Plans for the construction of the
Foster road trunk sewer system have
been prepared by the department of
public works and are ready for fil
ing. The system, which will be one
of the largest in the city, will cost
approximately $403,000.
The trunk sewer will extend along
Foster road from Sixty-second street
Southeast, to Ninety-second street
Southeast, and thence south to John
son creek. Nearly J 0,0000 lots will
be assessed for the improvement.
For some time after the sewer is
constructed it will be used only for
street drainage purposes, according
to A. G. Johnson, assistant commis
sioner of public works, and will not
carry sanitary sewage. This will be
done because of the fact that the
sewer will empty into Johnson creek.
The Foster road trunk sewer will not
be converted from a drainage carrier
until such time as the proposed John
son creek trunk sewer system is con
structed. It will be about ten weeks before
bids for the Foster sewer system will
be called for. It is boped to have
the sewer completed during the sum
mer. The sewer Is mwch needed at pres
ent to drain the bogs and low lands
of the southeast section, according to

In his letter to the senate inform
ing that body of his disapproval of
the bill, the governor stated that he
was in error two years ago when he
permitted the bill establishing the
King county law library to become a
law without his signature, and tnat
he did so on the assurance that the
law only applied to King county and
would not apply to any other.
Precedent Declared Dangerous.
'It may be that the collector of
revenue under cover may be justified
under tht old saying that "What one
don't know won't hurt him,' but in-
as much as many of our paternalistic
expenses. like the oak, grew from
small things, so in my opinion will
this continue to grow, if permitted to
so on." declared the message. "It is
not unreasonable to look forward a
few years, to the time when this law
would be extended to cover every
county in the state, and in the rivalry
of the bar associations for as good or
better libraries than the. other county
has, it would soon lead to the ex
penditure of public funds for this
purpose, if not the levying of a direct
tax to maintain the library."
The governor also vetoed today
house bill No. 6, by Bassett of Spo
kane, making it unlawful for asses
sors to extend any tax levy made by
ny taxing district in excess of the
limit prescribed by law, and requiring
hat where electors authorize such
levy in excess of the legal limit, the

Simply and tersely stated, Mother's Friend is just exactly what the name
implies a friend and help to mothers.
It has been made and sold for mor '".an half a century. If it did not
possess the value claimed for it, l -her' Friend could not possibly have
remained on the market. For only that which is really worth while and
beneficial can survive.
The mothers who appreciate Mother's Friend the most, and who are loudest
in their praise of it, are those who unfortunately did not use it with
their first baby, and who, through its use with the second one, were able to
fully realize the relief it gave them.
"Dear Sirs: I am willinf and anxious to tell any mother
about Mother' Friend. It did me so rnich good that I
wouldn't bo without it If it cost J.M a bottle. With my
first two children I had a doctor and a nurse and then
they had to use instruments, but with my last two children
I only had a nurse; wo bad no time to fet a doctor be
catoe I wasn't very sick and only tick about ten or fifteen

to give her advice. Your, truly
