THE OREGON DAILY JOTTRNAL. PORTLAND. OREGON.
TO "DUTCH TREAT"
One week from Monday, which
- daU f afl on . December .6, Multno
mah county segment of the 1981
legislature will begin to function
through the medium of a "putch
treat dinner" to be staged under the
auspice of Senator W. W. Banktf at
one of Portland' prominent caravan
. sarles. : That, In manner and form,
- to the newe that cornea through 't-he
; announcement of Senator Batiks,
who Is calling the meeting of jthe
Joint delegation aa chairman of Jthe
delegation of the 1919 -aeeslon. f
ThU first meeting of the delegation
will be strictly a family affair with hone
of.th constituent mass Invited, not that
the conatltuenclea of the varioui mem
' r would not be welcome, but because
Kenator Banks believes that it would
make for efficiency and dispattfh In sub
sequent meetings if "the boys" were to
be herded together for an evening on
a footing of entire equality, including
Individual ' payment of the cost of the
dinner, so that all yose who are new
may be given an opportunity to get ac
qua lnted with all those who are old.
legislatively speaking. Of course.
MAT SAME HOCBE MAX 4- ,
At this dinner, too. It lsexpected that
a chairman of the Joint delegation and
a secretary will be selected for the see
slon. Incidentally It Is expected that
the chairman will be selected from the
house delegation, since the senate had
that honor last time and it Is a sort of
unwritten law that the Job shall shift
from one side of the assembly to the
other with alternate sessions.
Doubtless there are a.number of the
house members who would not refuse
thf gavel of the joint delegation should
it be tendered them by the majority, or
' the unanimous vote of. the Multnomah
J. D. Lee. veteran legislator and head
of the ticket In number of recorded
votes, is being spoken of for the place,
It being urged In his behalf that custom
is extant which decrees that the man
with the hijrh vote Shall be given the
chairmanship. This Is a haay legend,
however, and may not stand the strain
of practice should the delegation have
another mind. Herbert-Gordon, K. K.
Kubll, Barge Leonard and one or two
other members of the house delegation
have also been mentioned.
WILL DISCUSS LEGISLATION
In addition to the election of a chair
man and secretary - It is planned that
the delegation . will discuss, generally,
those major problems of Multnomah
county which will come up for final de
termination during the Bession. In legis
lative practice all matters affecting
Multnomah county are left for determin
ation very largely , to the decision of
the Joint delegation' of . the1 county.
Strictly within the sule all ; Multnomah
legislation is supposed to run the gaunt
let of the Joint delegation before It
makes Its initial bow to the whole legis
lature, a custom which, I ordinarily
speaking, gives' the delegation the power
of life or death to local legislation.
Following the initial and organisa
tion meeting of a week from Monday
It is proposed that the delegation will
hold weekly and public conventions be
fore which all local matters may be dis
cussed by those Interested in them, or
opposed to them.' It will also be for the
delegation to determine whether It will
limit its discussion to strictly local
measures and proposals or will go Into
the consideration of state-wide legisla
Local matters win probably be given
the right of way even to the entire ex
clusion of state-wide legislation, as paaU
experience has demonstrated . tnai tne
consideration of state-wide propositions
by the Multnomah delegation prior to
the convention of the legislature has
tended to create Jealousies uaghout
the state, other delegations contending
that Multnomah's big representation
was prejudging general legislation be
fore It was given "consideration by the
assembly at large.

downward, Leslie 6Rear of the research
department of Armour A Co. said, be
cause of lower trends of wholesale meats
In the last two months.:
"Our prices began dropping when ex

now average 5 cents under Quotations
of a month ago. . v
"Lately, farmers have been holding off
shipments because of the election and
the bumper crops. They began dumping
their cattle and hogs on the ' market
last week the big break was Thursday,
when the decline was from $1 to $1.50
on hogs. It has developed into a 'sell

packers count the revenue from the
waste to balance the returns from the
sale. of dressed meats.'
BT-PRODUCTS SLOW ' , . 'V
"While livestock Is "a, sellers market,
by-products cannot now be disposed of
at any prnice," according to O'Rear.
Hide Quotations have dropped from SO
to 21, and offal and other by-products
similarly declined, he said.
This would result in lower prices 'of
shoes, clothing and other articles, ac
cording to experts, but the public's buy

for the raw materials.
By-products of lamb, which a year aco
sold at $14, bring $1, now, according to
