Acting Governor Hart Says
Lister's Appointees to Stay.-
SITUATION YET UNCERTAIN
Changes Are Anticipated in Event of
Governor's Death; Friends Cling
to Hopes for Recovery.
THE SUNDAY OREGONIAX, PORTLAND, JUNE 8, 1919.
OX.YJIFIA, "Wash., June 7. (Special.)
s After returning from a highway in
spection trip through southwestern
Washington aa far as Ilwaco Acting
Oovernor Ij. F. Hart today allayed
considerable apprehension prevailing
among democratic state appointees,
one of whose terms expired today. Mr.
Hart let it be understood that he con
templates no changes in salaried offices
eubject to appointment while he is
officiating in the capacity of acting
governor. This means that the per
sonnel of Governor Lister's administra
tion will remain Intact.
The situation is left indefinitely un
certain, but many of Governor Lister's
close friends cling to the hope that he
will recover and may even return to
his executive duties, despite frequent
discouraging reports of his condition
from the Seattle sanitarium where he
is now under treatment.
Several Term to Expire.
Democratic appointees, whose terms
expire in the meantime, will, it is un
derstood, hold over until the admin
istrative status again becomes defined.
This situation leaves Donald A. Mc
Donald in the office of industrial in
surance commissioner beyond the term
he was serving, which expires June 8.
It will also govern the case of Frank
71. Spinning, public service commis
sioner, whose term expires June 16
The latter position pays $5000 a year
and the appointive term is six years.
Industrial insurance commissioner pays
S:1600 a year. Rev. T. J. Cannon of
Malaga will continue in the position
of penitentiary chaplain at Walla Walla
from today. No other salaried appoint
ments of importance expire before 1921.
Channel Are Anticipated.
If Acting Governor Hart should be
come governor in fact, there is no
doubt but a number of changes in ap
pointive state offices would be made,
probably including the public service
commission and several other important
departments as the administration
would then be republican throughout.
A number of reappointments to state
boards were made by the acting gover
nor today, including those of W. W.
Emery of Napavine and Pat McCoy of
Seattle to the state forestry commls
sion; C. M. Olsen to the Bellingham
Normal board of trustees; Robert Prior
of Yakima, to the board of veterinary
examiners; C. Osseward of Seattle to
the board of pharmacy.
According to compilations issued to
day by C. R. Jackson, state tax com
missioner, Washington's total taxation
for all county, municipal and state pur
poses has increased more than $10,000,-
000 in the three years from 1916 to 1919.
The total collection made in 1917 from
the levy made in 1916 amounted to
$37,466,786. The 1918 collection had In
creased to $43,225,284, and the 1919 col
lection is $47,722,683. Most of the in
crease noted is in the larger counties.
King going from $11,461,227, collected
in 1917, to $14,973,836 as the total 1919
collection. Pierce county advanced
from $2,354,622 to $4,804,065 and Spo
kane from $3,860,918 to $4,729,897.
Distribution of the levy for 1918, now
under collection, shows that railway
block and right of way paid $4,332,329,
railway rolling stock $684,457, tele
graph lines and property, $14,033, tele
phone lines and property $325,415, elec
tric railways $S54.632, all other real
property $32,801,088, all other personal
property $7,410,673.
Actual valuation of steam roads in
the state as made by the state tax com
missioner, subject to revision by the
- state board of equalization, carries
total valuation of $339,882,287. The
total valuation for electric lines is $38,
1195,825. these figures being not ma
terially different from those of last
year.
For telegraph line taxation, on actual
value basis, the commissioner this year
assessed the Western Union at $629,184
and the Postal at $147,035.
Increased rates on gas served to the
cities of Centralia and Chehalis by the
North Pacific Public Service company
were allowed by the public service com
mission today to the extent of a $1
minimum and a maximum charge of $2.
An increase was granted for this com
pany in February, 1918. but the com
mission finds it is still unable to 'show
any profit and is carrying actual loss
below the cost of operation, if deprecia
tion is allowed.

FIVE MILE DAM.
Project, It Is Declared, Would Give
Lewiston. Clear Water Courst to
Portland and Ocean.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, June 7. The bill recently in
troduced by Representative Summers
to put water on 130,000 acres of land
in Walla Walla and Franklin counties.
Washington, by building a dam at
Five-Mile on the lower Snake river
is arousing interest outside the area
that would be affected.
The fact that the building of this
dam would make the Snake river nav
igable all the year around up to Lew
iston suggests an additional value to
the project. It means, in other words,
that boats could pass readily, now that
the Celilo canal is open, from Lew
iston to Portland, or from Lewiston to
the ocean. On account of the smal
use made of navigable streams at this
time but little importance might at
tach to opening navigation for such a
great distance, but times are changing.
There is little doubt that the future
policy of the federal government will
be to make greater use of the nav
igable waters of the country. When
that time comes and with the develop
ment of the country along the lower
Snake, it is not unreasonable to expect
that regular boats will be plying both
ways on the Snake and the Columbia
every day.

JENNING'S to offer you, aspire to jnstill in every home they influence a spirit of MUTUAL
APPRECIATION for the furnishings of that home an appreciation not existing for the wife or
mother of the home alone, but shared happily and congenially by every member of the family.
- JENNING'S realizes that it is impossible for us, in the twinkling of an eye, to MAKE the sort of a home
that satisfies our high ideals of what a home should be.
But we can lay the solid foundation the SURE foundation by planning homes for PERMANENCY, for
PLEASURE-GIVING, for INTEREST-INVITING.
And when the home is tried and mellowed by the years (with new things added often enough to keep the
picture freshly colored and inspiring) it will fairly BREATHE the spirit of MUTUAL LOVE AND DE
VOTION for the worth-while things of life and be a beautiful illustration of what it means and will mean
to you all your life to have, now, a truly SUCCESSFUL Better Home.
