Governor Talks of the Ex

the First Day. in Memory of T.
N. Murphy tile Republicans
May lay Their Lines.
"My message on the special session
Is In the hands of the state printer,.and
will be made public at the propeY time,"
said Governor George E. Chamberlain
this morning. "It Is in conformity
with the purposes for which the session
was called to meet day after tomorrow.
In the main it will deal with the tax
law. I do not anticipate that the ses
sion will be an extended one, I also
think that the sentiment for. handling
only the tax emergency has crystallzed,
and that many of the members are in
favor of transacting this business wlth-
out unnecessary- delay. Of course some
of the bills that have been vetoed "will
be brought up. As far as any other leg
islation ill concerned I do not think that
there Ja any matter of sufficient im
portance or urgency, to Justify Immed
iate action." . .
Oaa Yeto Bin,
That' the special session of the'leglsla
ture will not confine its work exclusive
ly to the tax law, is the opinion of many
on the Inside workings of the Oregon po
litical machine. .
The recommendation of the governor
was for a session ?of :. only : sufficient
" length to. rectify the tax bill emergency.
From the original purpose he has not
wavered,: and has put himself on record
'as radically opposed to the taking up of
-other legislation at this time,
, Jhe governor has not the power to
'dictate to the members of the legisla
ture whether they shall or shall not pass
other bills. They have, the option to do
as they please. Their work, however,
will' be handicapped, if Governor Cham
berlain decides to use bis power of veto.
. Probable Idas of Action. '
. When the senate convenes next Mon
day, the right of President Brownell to
wing the gavel may be a subject for
argument. If so It will take some time
to settle the controversy.
. When the roll Is called,. there will be a
vacancy from Union county," through the
death of T. N. Murphy. The deceased
was a popular member) and it is likely
that business will be suspended for the
day as a mark of respect to the dead.
- After ' the adjournment the 1 Repub
licans will. In the natural course of
things, hold a caucus and try and ar
rive at some conclusion as. to the line
of action to pursue. This srar chamber
meeting will decide' whether the session
will be devoted exclusively to the rec
tifying of the tAX law or whether a flood
' of bills of all kinds will be brought up
. The Ailing of the vacancy caused by
the going to congress of state senator
Williamson, will be a matter that may
be the occasion for much wire pulling.
Ta taw Problem.
The second day will, in the regular
order of things,' be devoted to the tax
law. It may be that the faulty meas
ure will, simply be repealed and that
the old tax law will remain in force.
Again, the Phelps law may be amended,
or an effort made to pass a new one.
. It la doubtful whether these questions
will be disposed of in one dayv as the
opportunities for discussion are many
In, connection with this issue. It Is a
bill of Importance and legislators from
the Blue mountains to Tillamook will
have something to say. .
Phelps, the author of the bill, . has
drawn up another to remedy the defects
In the old one. This will probably be
submitted -to the attorney-general for
a decision as to Its, legality, and will
also be considered In the .caucus. This
new bill may be passed to expedite mat
ters, rather than take up the work of
amending the defective measure or to
leave the old law in operation by the
repeal of the Phelps bill.
. v Other Work of the Session.
-J ' Action Will be taken on the vetoes
by the governor of bills passed during
the last - days of the regular session.
One of these is the Marster bill, which
provides for it new form of the official
ballot This measure passed the house
and the Senate without a dissenting
vote. This was vetoed by the governor
on the basis that it practically nullified
the Australian ballot system. The bill
for the creation of a state mining bu
reau was , also vetoed and will be

"Washington, Dec. 19. The senate com

SUMMIT OF MOUNT
(JonrMl BpecUl SerTiee.)
Tacoma. Dec. 19. A sensational Story
of a monster slide on the top of Mount
Rainier which has changed the entire
configuration of the summit is told by
G. E. Huggins, a wealthy and well
known stockman, whose ranges are
around . the base of the mountain. He
claims "to have . witnessed the phenom
enon together with others Including ex
State Senator Ruth of Qlympia. Ac
cording to the story the highest peak of
tha mountains has tumbled over, reduc
ing the height of the mountain, and mil
lions of tons of rock and earth have
been precipitated down the side of the
The gentlemen say that the slide was
preceded by a trembling and shaking of
the earth, accompanied by reports which
soon grew into a great roar. ' "The first
big slide, which carried away the south
eastern peak of the mountain, was. fol
lowed, by others of smaller magnitude.
The rumblings and the first landslide
occurred on Tuesday, but those follow
ing lasted until Wednesday night There
will be no means of determining the
exact changes in the mountain top until
next summer, when the snows have
melted sufficiently to permit of the as
cent of the mountain. It Is feared that
the slide has carried away all the monu

climbing the peak in years past. ,

dispatches being received from all parts
of Europe, asking for' the latest devel

position to avoid any, comment, on the

This is not believed to be the" true
feeling of officials, as active preparations
are being constantly made for war.

(Journal Special SerTlce.) .
Chicago. Dec. 19. After battling with
every, character of strike known in his
tory, the people of this city are now up
against what Is proving to be. the most
annoying of them all. ;
vThe living cannot bury their dead. '
Livery drivers refuse to haul hearses,
and funerals alf over, the city are being
postponed In consequence.
Even dead wagons cannot be had today
at any price,;, except a few and these are
doing treble service.- Mourners are de
nied the. privilege of attending the bur
ial of relatives, Unless they - walk to-the,
cemeteries., or take street cars. Car
riages are not for hire. '
Fabulous prices were offered today for
hearses by the relatives of the late Fred
erick Otis, the millionaire and Judge
Jones Hutchinson, one of the most prom
inent of Illinois Jurists, both of whom
died two days .ago. In both instances
the hearses -were refused and arrange
ments were made to convey the remains
tOj. the 'cemetery ; In dead .. wagons, the
mourners following In their private car
riages or as best they could.
. There are today, nearly. 4,000 livery
drivers out On strike. They ask for bet
ter wages and better conditions of work
ing hours. Nearly COO livery stables
are tied op. ;
At one funeral today, the hearse was
deserted on the road to thooemetery anil
five carriages which followed were left
after the deserting drivers had tied their
horses at the roadside. This was oc
casioned by one undertaker securing sev
eral non-union drivers to take a funer. jl
cortege , to the cemetery. Union men
persuaded the drivers to desert while
en route. .Police officers mounted the
boxes; and the remains and relatives
were taken to the graveyard.
What is even Vorse is the report that
cemetery employes state they will Join
the strikers and will refuse to handle
any funeral. The situation is alarming
and many think that the unions have
gone too far.
- Nearly 126 funerals were scheduled for
today, none of . which ; were able to be
carried out. Undertakers announce tht
they will not send out a hearse until the
drivers are forced into submission.
. The most serious demonstration sines
the livery strike began this morning oc
curred at the funeral of Mrs. Joseph
Vlock, who was murdered a few days
ago, while the body was accompanied
by her two small children .and was hur
riedly driven from the residence to St.
Procnplus church. In anticipation of
trouble a detail of police was sent to
the church, where a crowd of 300 men
and boys had gathered. When the dead
wagon drove up curses and cat-calls
were hurled at-the driver and the un
dertaker's assistant and the police were
compelled to charge the mob with clubs
before the body could be carried Into
the church. Only the two children were
permitted to enter the church and cried
and Bobbed in grief beside the cof
fin as the priest conducted the services.
The police were meanwhile as solid as
a phalanx at the door, and the, crowd
was cursing ; and shouting. , When the
services were over the : police again
charged the crowd and formed two solid
lines between which four officers carried
the coffin to the hearse, which wss then
driven rapidly away, the driver ; lash
ing his horses forward while the re
mainder of the squad checked the moh..
A similar scene was faced at other fun
erals but the ' disorder was not sf
marked. In one Instance owing to f
lack of a conveyance, the priest w
compelled to conduct the service for the
dead at the home before the body w
removed in an express wagon. . :
