this to be true.

the result of growing cancer, from
which he had been suffering for
several years. Boyd was born in
Missouri and came to this county with
his' parents when Ul years old. A

brothers survive; Joe of Dillcy;

Milton A. Miller, wo states that the present scheme of a two-chamber
legislature is antiquated.
tonlshing. For instance, the session
laws of California for 1913 made a
book of 1746 printed pages; Colorado,
696; Delaware, 846; Minnesota, 918;
North Carolina. 746; Kansas, 594.
Another very weak point aboyt th
present legislative' system is that
ery frequently half the bills aia
passed during the last eight or 10
days qf the session. I have Keen in
my seat in the Oregon legislature
hours at a time when bill after bill
has been passed, and afterward a ses
sion would be called to correct mis
take after mistake; and this will con
tinue so as long as the present system
is carried on.
Dave Logan, I believe, was credited
with saying that the legislature
should meet once in 10 years and then
it should devote its time to repealing
rather than making laws.
Remedies Suggested.
Many remedies have been suggested.
among them tne following:
-The divided sessions, i. e., meet and
introduce the bills lor a certain num
ber of days, then adjourn for a given
length of timo and reconvene and de
vote the time to the passage of - bills
introduced at the first session. This
plan I believe has been adopted by
California. j
Another plan suggested is that the
Hlls be published, at the expense of
the state, prior to the meeting of the
Another plan is that the number of
bills introduced should be limited.
We attempted at the last session of
the legislature to propose an amend
ment to tlie constitution, providing
that the bills should be limited to five
per member, but it went down to de
feat in the senate, the same as many
other proposed reforms.
Still another plan: A commission
form of government for the state
composed of a small body of men.
This plan has been strongly indorsed
by G6vernor Hodges of Kansas, in the
following language: "A single house
legislature would be more responsive
and obedient to public opinion, and at
the same time more efficient and less
expensive than the large' and cumber
some system now in "vogue; it would
be easy and inexpensive to call to
gether in case of emergency."
Wisconsin, I believe, has a reference
department which furnishes members
of the legislature with information
upon almost all topics. They also
have a person to assist the members
in drafting their bills. To my mind
this is a very good idea.
For the inefficiency of our present
legislative ' system we are paying
Present Plan Admittedly Weak.
The fact that so many remedies are
being suggested for our present sys
tem of state legislatures Is sufficient
evidence that it is not satisfactory to
the people. For my part'l am in favor
of a . smaller legislative body and
more safeguards being thrown around
the introduction of bills and the mak
ing of laws. If this were done, thou
sands of dollars would be saved to the
people. I am not only in favor of the
smaller legislative body, but I am
strongly in favor of limiting the num
ber of bills to be introduced, and
amending our constitution permitting
the governor to sit with the legisla
ture; also giving him power to veto
single items in ' appropriation bills.
This has been attempted on a num
ber of occasions in the Oregon legis
lature, but it has always been rejected.
At the last session of. the legisla
ture, in 1913, it was defeated on twe
different occasions in the senate. In
one instance a resolution was intro
duced providing for the single item
veto. It went to the committee on
resolutions, of which I was a mem
ber. A majority and a minority re
port were made to the enate. The
majority report was against the reso
lution, 'which was adopted. There
fore the resolution was defeated, and
the people still have no relief from
the omnibus appropriation bill.
I believe" this to be an important
question, and think the state consti
tution should be so amended. For in
stance at the last session, of the legis
lature. Governor West vetoed an ap
propriation bill amounting to over
$1,000,000. This bill contained many
items which should have been con
tained in separate bills.
I sincerely trust the public may
give this matter earnest and careful
consideration and endeavor to have
this much needed change effected, in
order to facilitate the administration
of the affairs of the state, bringing it
to a higher standard of efficiency, in
the interests of all concerned.
There is plenty of room for move
contestants in The Journal's circula
tion and" trade contest and it is a
mortal "cinch" that the $5000 wortn
of prizes that will be distributed
among the winners won't go to those
who stand on the sidelines, lacking
courage to plunge in.
Opportunity exists only for the man
or woman who grasps it. The short
cut way to possession of an automo
bile, or a piano, a Columbia gratonola
or a ticket and plenty of spending
money for a trip to the Panama Pa
cific Exposition is offered by this con
test. There are many prizes and you
might as well win one as anybody
Everybody cannot own an automo
bile. They cost money and the ma
jority of people can't dig down into
the family purse and pay a thousand
or so dollars for one.
May Win Auto.
And yet there .are two people in
Portland today who on February 24,
.1915, four months from now, are go
ing to be presented with automobiles
and without paying a cent for them
These two people will be the win
ners of the first and Becond grand
prizes. The first grand prize will be
a "Reo the Fifth." cost $1280; the
second grand prize will be a nifty run
about "Maxwell 25," value $850.
Think of it! An automobile in ex
change for a little hustling at odd
hours for four months! It takes most
people years to save enough to buy
And the autos are only two of the
wonderful list of prizes offered. Other
people are going to receive pianos, of
the high grade sort; others still will
win expensive Columbia grafonolas
and some lucky ones will be pre
sented. with tickets to the fair at San
Francisco, spending money and ex
penses paid by The Journal .
All Save C banco.
The opportunity is open to you to
everybody and the contest is so ar
ranged that the out-of-town folks in
Oregon, Washington, Idaho or any
where else have as good a chance to
win as those who reside in Portland.
Better still Portland is divided into
districts three of them to make sure
that contestants in the more thickly
populated sections cannot have an un
fair lead over those of the more
thinly populated districts.
You had better investigate this
short cut way to wealth. It is all
