FINAL REPORT ON
SIDELIGHTS ON LEGISLATURE
TIIE SUNDAY OREGOXIAX, PORTLAND, FEBRUARY 18, 1017.
Joint Ways and Means Com
mittee Closes Books With
Margin of $1 0,000 Left.
GRANTS REACH $6,299,700
Importance of Legislative Subdivi
sion Emphasized, as Changes Are
Dangerous When figrures
Run bo Close to Limit.
SALEM. Or., Feb. 17. (Special.) The
Joint ways and means committee has
finally closed Its books, its appropria
tion bills have all cone before the
Legislature for better or for worse
and the committee left the state with
a balance of $9806.7- on. the credit
side of Its ledsrer. in addition to ap
proximately $200,000 in unexpended
balances on appropriations from the
last blennlum. still reposing- in the
State Treasury for future contingen
cies. The grand total which the committee
recommended that this Legislature ap
propriate is 2. 299.699.75. Of this
amount t6.06S.266.35 was for claims
from the budget and the balance of
$231,433.40 was for special miscellane
ous appropriation bills.
The grand total mentioned includes
.Ihe millage taxes for the three higher
educational institutions, for the state
1 road fund and for the assistance to
county agricultural colleges, as well
as for the state's share of the Indus
trial Accident Commission fund.
Little Change Likely.
The size of the grand total for ap
propriations will ary but little from
the amount shown above when the Leg
islature finishes its labors, it is pre
dicted. Some may be cut a trifle, sorre
may be increased a trifle, but it is
generally considered that the appropri
ations on the whole will remain much
the same as when the recommendations
left th hands of the joint committee.
As predicted would be the case, be
fore the Legislature convened, the 6
per cent limitation amendment has
made the Joint ways and means com
mittee this session the most power
ful Joint ways and means committee
, la the history of Oregon Legislatures.
It has been apparent from many re
marks made n the floor of both houses
that the Legislature had little inclina
tion to tamper with recommendations
from the committee. The 6 per cent
amendment has made close bookkeep
ing Imperative and the members have
realized that close bookkeeping can
mot be handily conducted when 89 dif
ferent members are all attempting to
cnange tne work of the committee.
Sir. Schroeder Keeps Watch.
The lion's share of the bookkeeping
or xhe committee has fallen into the
hands of Chief Clerk John Schroeder.
of the Joint committee, who, with the
assistance of Deputy Secretary of State
Mm K.ozer, has piloted the affairs of
the committee to its haven well within
the terms of the amendment.
It has required the most careful
scrutiny of all claims to land right side
tip with care at the conclusion of the
session and that this scrutiny has been
given is evident from the results.
The final list of appropriation bills
as prepared by Chief Clerk Schroeder
shows the following which have gone
before the Legislature, Including items
from the budget and special mlscel
laneaus appropriation bills.
The budget Items allowed and for

"California Syrup of Figs' can't harm
tender stomach, liver,
Every mother realizes, after giving
her children "California Syrup of Figs."
that this is their Ideal laxative, because
they love its pleasant taste and It thor
oughly cleanses the tender little stom
ach, liver and bowels without griping.
When cross. Irritable, feverish or
breath is bad, stomach sour, look at the
tongue, mother! If coated, give a tea
spoonful of this harmless "fruit laxa
tive." and in a few hours all the foul,
constipated waste, sour bile and undi
gested food passes out of the bowels,
and you have a well, playful child
again. When its little system is full of
cold, throat sore, has stomach-ache,
diarrhoea, indigestion, colic remem
ber, a good "inside cleansing" should
always be tho first treatment given.
Millions of mothers keep "California
Syrup of Figs" handy; they know a tea
spoonful today saves a sick child to
morrow. Ask your druggist for a 60

DEATH STORY QUALIFIED
Hans B rot en Fell Instead of Striking
Head, Brother Says.
The report that Hans Broten, black
smith, died Friday morning as the re
sult of Btrlking his head on a tire
shrinker while in good-natured play
with his brother, Gilbert Broten. was
qualified by the brother yesterday.
Mr. Broten explained that he was
outside the shop at the time of the ac
cident. He said his brother stumbled
and fell against the tire shrinker.
The man was injured Thursday and
he was found dead in bed at his home,
335 Ha&salo street, Friday morning.
The two brothers were Joint owners
of . the Eureka Carriage Works, on
Couch street, between Sixth and Broadway,
now one of the big stock raisers of
Umatilla County, now owning a ranch
of 4000 acres. All but 1600 acres are
devoted to stock raising. In 18S4 he
engaged in the hardware and imple
ment business In Athena, and is still
engaged in it
Senator Barrett Is one of the hardest
working members of the Senate. He is
an earnest advocate of consolidation
of state boards and commissions, of
which he has made a careful study for
years, and maintains that if his plan
of consolidation had been adopted in
1915 the state would be thousands of
dollars better off and Its affairs would
have gained by more efficient adminis
tration. Senator Barrett is also thor
oughly interested in good roads. He
has been a member of the roads com
mittee of one or the other house at
nearly every session he has attended.
Memories of the late Rogue River
fish fight flashed through minds of
House members this morning when
Representative Tlchenor secured the
courtesies for Ben Fish, a prominent
resident of Rogue River.
When the Senate yesterday, without
a dissenting vote, passed the new ir
rigation code, so greatly .needed in
Eastern Oregon, .where the prosperity
of a vast territory depends on irri
gation, one man who has been working
day and night on the code since the
very opening of the session drew a
great sigh of relief. He was Jay H.
Upton, of Prlneville. chairman of the
legislative committee of the Oregon
Mr. Upton was sent here by the Ir
rigation Congress to look after the
code, and he did. He was on the Job
all the time, and a huge share of the
credit for the legislation obtained be
longs to him.
One of the important points covered
in the new code is the placing on a
parity with municipal bonds as invest
ments for banks of irrigation bonds
that have been approved by the Attorney-General
and Superintendent of

Legislature Has High "Batting
ATerage" Suggestion About Im
provement "of Penitentiary
to Go Before People.
SALEM. Or.. Feb. 17. (Special.)
The Legislature has had a rather high
batting average" In vaylng attention
to recommendations made in the mes
sage of the executive at the opening of
Some of the recommendations offered
such as general Improvement at the
penitentiary, were found impossible of
ruirmment under the 6 oer cent limit
tlon amendment, but these undoubtedly
will be cared for under some sort of
proposals to the people, as the only
sovereign power that may override the
expression of that amendment.
The Governor's suggestion that the
btate Tax Commission be cut to one an
pointive member and save I1B.000 for
tne blennlum was taken entirely and
enacted Into law. More revenue will be
derived from the inheritance taxes and
the State Insurance Department in line
with suggestions incorporated in his
message. His proposal to increase the
license tax on automobiles also met
with the approval of the Legislature.
Bone-dry legislation was enacted
early in the session in line with the
urgent recommendations made; the flax
Industry was granted an appropriation
such as the Governor asked to perpet
uate the industry, and there seems every
reason to believe that some sort of an
appropriation will be made to bring
about the development of the lime In
dustry to assist the farmers.
Two sterilization bills, covering a
wide scope, were passed and provide a
way for the state to prevent propaga
tion of the degenerate, the criminal and
the unfit; the insurance code was
passed as urged In his message; the
license fee for anglers was Increased
as suggested by the executive, and an
Irrigation code passed as urged in his
Touching upon local economy in his
message by urging minor reforms in
the smaller political divisions of the
state, met with a response In a number
of bills tending toward such reform.

by the Governor there seems to be

the Legislative Assembly.
