Sinnott expects to-address the House
at some length on the general featurta
of the legislation. Approving the
measure in principle, he will endeavor
to show that the public lands commit
tee is mistaken in Its report In saying
that Oregon has been given extremely
liberal treatment. This he is expected
to do by analyzing the bill with refer
ence to the sums set aside for Oregon
schools and roads, and with reference
to the timber sale and homestead pro
visions that tend to defer the dateof
actual entry and date of taxation.
Under the plan of consideration
agreed upon by the leaders. It is ex
pected that practically a full day will
be allowed for debate. Th house
probably will meet at 11 o'clock, and
under the rules, two hours will-be al
lowed for general debate. Durlnst this
time remarks on the general features
of the bill will be offered. Chairman
Ferris probably wl.l moke the opcnlns
statement, and several members put
side of Oregon are expected to be
heard. Lenroot of Wisconsin will like
ly control the time on th Republican
side, as he is the ranking member of
the committee.
After the general debate comes the
reading of the bill by sections, when
amendments may be offered and voted
upon. This la done in committee of
the whole, in which there is no oppor
tunity for a record vote, but in which
a count by tellers may be had on any
closely contested point.
It is understood that tha bill is to be
disposed of in the one day. Debate on
amendments, confined to five minutes
for each speaker, may thus run on
until a late hour rn the afternoon, and
It Is thought unlikely that a finsl vote
on the bill will be reached before 5 or
6 o clock. It is unlikely, also, that
the bill will be materially' changed
from the form In which It if reported
by the committee, although it will be
under a broadside of amendments In
the afternoon.
