ORTON BILL IS FAVORED
MULTNOMAH DELEGATION IN HOUSE
12 TO 1 FOR MEASURE.
SALEM, Or., Feb. 10. (Special.)
Important orders were handed down by
the Public Service Commission today.
Including the establishing of rates for
the Consolidated Electric Light Com
pany In a formal complaint brought by
John Day and Canyon City, and also a
Rrade crossing order on the Astoria
division of the Spokane. Portland &
Seattle Railway Company.
The Consolidated Electric Company
operates a plant which furnishes elec
tric service to John Day and Canyon
City, cities two miles apart in Grant
County. The questions at issue in the
complaint involved a valuation of the
property of the defendant company,
thn main contention being as to rates,
although the question of service also
entered in. -
It was necessary to ascertain a re
production cost, new estimate, together
with the accrued depreciation and the
reproduction cost less depreciation. It
is held that to reproduce the physical
plant would have cost $11,828. and it is
determined that the value for rate
making purposes of the physical plant
Is J9636.
Rate Held Dlsconratrtns;.
"The present rates of this utllllty do
rot produce an excessive return," says
the Commission. "On the contrary,
over and above reasonable operating
expenses and taxes the utility Is not
receiving even a fair rate of interest
on its investment in property devoted
to public use. The Commission is of
the opinion that this is due, at least in
part, to the present rates because they
exceed the value of the service and are
not such as to encourage the greater
use of electrical energy, or produce the
Maximum revenue which might be de
rived from the operation of this prop
erty."
The present rates of the company are
declared to be unjust, unreasonable and
discriminatory and the following rates
are declared to be just ana reasoname:
Domestio Rate.
Minimum monthly charge, $1.40; first 7
kilowatt hours a month, minimum charges
kilowatt hour: next 10 kilowatt hours a
month, 13 cents a kilowatt hour; next 23
kilowatt hours a month, 10 cents a kilo
watt honr: all over 40 kilowatt hours a
month, 7 cents a kilowatt 'hour.
Commercial Rate.
First 15 kilowatt hours a kilowatt, eon
rtected, -0 cents a kilowatt hour; next 20
kilowatt hours a kilowatt, connected, 19
rents a kilowatt hour; next 45 kilowatt
hours a kilowatt, connected, 10 cents a kilo,
watt hour; all over 80 kilowatt hours, a
kilowatt, connected, 7 cents a kilowatt hour
Ko connection load considered less than 600
watts. Minimum monthly charge: First BOO
watts of connected load, $1.40; for excess
over 500 watts of connected load, SI a kilo
watt.
The order ts to .take effect March
J. 1917. The commission also asserts
that the defendant utility in falling to
keep a set of boflks of account In con
fortuity with the commission's uniform
classification Is in direct violation of
the law and insistence ts made that im
mediate action be taken to remedy the
situation. Under the ruling of the com
mission a flat rate is done away with
and, the plant Installed entirely on a
meter system.
Crossing; Order Is First.
Its grade crossing order relative to
a crossing on i the Astoria division of
the Spokane, Portland & Seattle
considered of importance as being the
first of its kind ever Issued in the
state. It is probable that the new
frra-de crossing provisions will cover
numerous crossings in the future and
is as follows: .
The commission requires as a neces
sary warning and protection of the
public that all timber and brush adja
cent to the crossing and tending to ob
struct the view thereof be removed;
that there be installed and maintained

STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Or.. Feb. 10.
(Special.) Senator Orton's bill pro
viding for a number of revisions in the
teachers' tenure-of -office law was rec
ommended by the Multnomah delegation
n the House at noon today by a vote of
2 to 1, and will be reported back
favorably next Monday afternoon. .
The only Multnomah member to vote
against the Orton bill was Representa
tive Callan. who has introduced a
tenure-of-office bill of his own. The
Callan bill now is in the hands of the
House committee on education, but the
committee is said to be unanimously
against It.
A delegation of more than 100 port-
land school teachers who were here
early In the week all were against the
Callan bill. Many of them were for
the Orton" bin, and some were for no
bill at alL Director Plummer. of the
School Board, also opposes the Callan
bill. In fact, no one seems to be for
the Callan bill but Callan.
The Orton bill went through the Sen
ate with an almost unanimous vote. It
was referred to the Multnomah delega
tlon in the House, and the delegation
wants it to go up for third reading.
But Callan made such a protest that he
was not getting a "square deal" that
the delegation decided to hold back its
report on the Orton bill until the Callan
bill can come formally before it. Cal
an was told to get his bill before the
delegation by noon on Monday.

came up in the House tonight and
after a free-for-all attack on various
provisions It was sent back to the
insurance committee for amendment.

surance code, which now Is pending In
the Senate, after having passed the
House. The committee got Represent
ative Callan to Introduce it and Callan
started to explain It when It went to
third reading.

claring it gave the fire marshal too
much power to summon witnesses.

it back, and patch it up.

I COMMISSIONER DROPPED
Welfare and Child Labor to Be
Departments In Labor Office,
Which Would Also Take Over

STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Or.. Feb. 10
(Special.) Three consolidation bills.
prepared not by the Joint consolidation
committees of the two houses, but by
the Senate consolidation committee
acting independently, made their ap-1
pearance in the Senate tonight. They
were introduced by Senator Dlmlck,
chairman of the Senate committee.
There measures are in the nature of
compromises between the conflicting
views relative to the Industrial Acci
dent Commission. So much opposition
has developed against the Joint com
mittee plan of eliminating two of the
three Industrial Accident Commission
ers and consolidating the Accident
Commission with the Labor Commis
sioner, Child Labor Commission and
Industrial "Welfare Commission that It
is dead.
On the other hand, the Senate com
mittee figures that some saving can
be made in the commission without
crippling it. One of the bills intro
duced today, therefore, provides for the
elimination of one Commissioner, leav
ing a Commission of two and reducing
or their salaries from J3600 to $3000.
One Commissioner is to represent the
employer and the other the employe.
When these two are unable to agree
as to awards, the physician of the de
partment will eit with them.
Senator Dimick declares this plan
will save .9600 for the biennlum.
The second bill makes the Industrial
Welfare Commission and the Child
Labor Commission departments In the
office of the Labor Commissioner. The
committee estimated that a saving of
nan or the ?1Z,000 appropriation asked
by these two commissions can be af
fected by the consolidation.
The third bill places all factory and
workshops inspection in the hands of
the Labor Commissioner, the purpose
being to avoid duplicate investigations
by the Industrial Accident Commission.

Plans are being perfected whereby Portland will participate In one of the 75

Frlenda of Bill Consent.
In Its amended form the bill prob

The Laurgaard bill to establish sanl
tary districts In Portland was passed
by the House today.
This bill provides for the organiza
tion of sanitary districts and the con
struction of trunk sewers.
A Joint sanitary commission, con

provided for to fix the limits of the
sanitary district, approve plans, speci
fications and estimates for the con
struction of a trunk sewer and to fix
the apportionment of cost between the
area inside the city and the area out

empowered to construct the trunk
sewer, but at its own expense.
Rosvd Bill Passed.
Another bill, fathered by Laurgaard
and providing for a system of county
roads, also was passed by the House to
day. This bill was prepared by a com
mittee of three Prosecuting Attorneys
appointed by the convention of County
Judges and Commissioners recently

authorizes County Courts to supervise,
control and direct all work on the

salmon packed on the Columbia from 4
cents a case to 5 cents and on the
Rogue River from 2 ',4 cents to 4 cents,

tion the .TJmpqua people got together
early this week and compromised.
Commercial fishing is to be per
