York. Incidentally it is already certain
that the Junior senator will be recog
nized by Governor Wilson as the New
York state leader. There will be no
Interference with Murphy as boss of
Tammany, but in matters that have to
do with the state at large. It will be
O'Gorman and not Murphy that will be
called for consultation.
Bryan will take the stump for the
governor. He has already arranged to
confer with Wilson when the latter
goes to Chicago on July 15 for the meet
ing of the national committee. At that
time it will be decided whether
moner and the candidate will make a
toint tour of the country.
It Is generally believed that this plan
will be followed as many of the leaders
believe It would greatly strengthen the
party In the far west.
Former Senator James Smith and
James Nugent, Wilson's most bitter
enemies in his own state, are expected
to visit the governor with the other
members of the state delegation net
Monday. At that time It Is expected
the feud which has existed since Wilson
prevented Smith being elected to the
United States senate, will be healed.

Salem, Or., July 6. In reply to cer
tain criticism that has been made of
the proposed "blue sky" corporation
law. Secretary of State Olcott today
Bav'e out the following interview:
"There is some criticism of the 'blue
sky' bill on account of the provision for
a separate corporation department and
the appointment of a commissioner at
a salary of $3000 per year. The state
ment has been' made that $4500 will
cover the expense of conducting the
corporation department under the pres
ent plan. Seven thousands dollars
would be much nearer ,the truth, and
this is a conservative estimate. While
the 'bluo sky' bill provides that the
cost of the corporation department
shall not exceed $25,000 the first year
nor $20,000 per year thereafter, this
limit Is prescribed simply as a precau
tion and) without any thought that the
cost of conducting the department will
reach any Such figure. On the contrary
It is estimated that the expense of the
department will not exceed $12,000,
which Is not more than $5000 in excess
of what the present department costs.
This is more than offset by the addi
tional revenue that will be derived from
the 'blue sky' bill, which, It Is con
servatively estimated will be not less
than $20,000. Therefore, if this bill
becomes a law, the corporation depart
ment will earn for the state a net
revenue of not less than $10,000 a year
while at the present time the taxpayers
are going down In their pocketB to the
tune of $7000 or $8000 per year to
handle the corporation work.
Steals Mads Difficult.
"But suppose the 'blue sky' bill didn't
produce a dollar of new revenue? Sup
pose the taxpayers had to put up $20,
000 per year to make this law effec
tive? wouldn't the benefit to the state
be wortlv the price? With -this law In
effect such steals as the Columbia
River Orchards company graft and
others quite as notorious would have
been impossible and the people would
have been saved millions of dollars.
"A law similar to the Oregon bill
has recently been passed In Arizona and
is administered by a commission of
three. Oklahoma has a corporation
commission of three members. It Isn't
likely that the salaries of these com
missioners are less than $3000 each
per year. i
"This office is already so crowded
that every timff one of thp clerks wants
to turn around some one must step out
Into the hall. From three to a doien
people connected with the office are
compelled to work outside, In various
places about the building, thereby great
ly handicapping the efficiency of the
Lack of System Exists.
"Two or three additional clerks,
desks, filing cases and equipment will
be required to administer the "blue sky'
bill. I defy any man to find room
for more people or furniture In this of
fice. Also there sre other reasons why
I am in favor of making a separate
corporation department. The work Is
now divided between this office and the
treasurer's office. This arrangement
has resulted in loss of time, confusion
and inconvenience to the public. No
business man would tolerate for a day
such a lack of system in his private
business. Then It should not be for
gotten that this bill is going to make
some soreheads. Every time an appli
cation for a charter is turned down
there is going to be a roar. If this
discretion Is lodged in a clerk, the
aggrieved party will at once file a com
plaint with the head of the department,
who must depend on the Judgment of
the clerk who has made the decision or
drop his other work and review the
whole matter, It is my dollberate
Judgment that this discretion should be
vested in a man with final power to
act, and that his decision should be
subject to review only by the courts.
The Status of O. S. Baboock.
"It has been charged that this bill
was framed to make a political berth
for C. D. Babcock, the present head
of the corporation department. I know
of my own knowledge that not one
word .has ever been said to Governor
West In connection with this matter in
behalf of Mr. Babcock. When the time
comes to make the appointment, I hope
the governor will name the best quali
fied applicant for the place. The bill
was framed In this office to stop the
robbery of the common people by
crooked corporations and promoters.
It haa been revised and approved by
many evel headed lawyers and busi
ness men. Including the Portland Cham
ber of Commerce, Commercial club and
Realty board, which bodies are financ
ing the Initiation of the measure.
"It la being submitted to the people
by the initiative because it is the
Judgment of all who are collaborating
In the matter that a better law can
be obtained In this way than by putting
it, up to the legislature.
Crooks Will Hot Uka It
"I do not expect this bill to please
the crooked corporations nor that class
of promoters which has been fattening
off the savings of the honest people
of the state.
"It has been known for some time
that the fight against the bill would
center on the provision for the estab
lishment of a corporation department,
but when it Is understood by the peo
ple that this plan will' greatly Increase
the efficiency of the department, and
that the added revenue will more than
pay the slight additional expense, I be
lieve this feature of the bill will receive
the hearty approval of the people."
