. Salem, Oc.n., Oct. 27r 1870. f
To the Honorable, the Senate of
the State of Oregori :
According to the requirements
of the Constitution, I herewith re
turn Senate Bill No. 77, "An
act to amend an act to incor
porate the city of Portland, ap
proved October 1 itli, 1861, and to
amend an act approved October
21st, 1870, entitled an act to amend
an act entitled an act to incorpo
rate the city of Portland, ap
proved October 11th, 1804 and to
amend an act entitled an act to
amend an act entitled an act to in
corporate the city of Portland,
approved October 1 4th, 1SG4, and
approved the 18th day of October,
1S0S, and 4o amend an act enti
tled an act to amend an act to in
corporate the city of Portland, ap
proved October " 14th, 1864, and
approved October 24th, 18GG,"
without executive approval which
I herewith file with the Secretary
of State with my objections there
to. The bill composed chielly of two
sections provides, in effect, in the
first section, that the indebtedness
of the city of Portland must never
exceed in the aggregate the sum of
one hundred thousand dollars, and
any debt or liability incurred in
violation of this section, whether
by borrowing money, loaning the
credit of the city or otherwise, is
null and void and of no effect, but
the city 01 Portland may incur an
additional indebtedness not ex
ceeding three hundred thousand
dollars. in the manner and for the
purpose following, that is to say if
any person or persons shall cause
or procure the Willamette Valley
Kailway Company heretofore in
corporated under the laws of this
State by articles of incorporation
filed in the oilice of the Secretary
of State, the 29th day of July,
1870, or any other Company to
commence and construct their road
or track from and within" the citj'
limits of the city of Portland, and
if sftch person or persons shall
cause or procure svtid Railway
Company td locate, construct and
establish its terminial depot on the
west side of the Willamette river
ami within the limits of said city
as aforesaid, then and upon these
conditions said city is authorized
by and through, its Mayor and
Common Council to provide by
ordinance for making and issuing
its seven -per cent, gold coupon
bonds payable in twenty years for
the sum of three hundred thousand
dollars, the interest thereon to be
That so soon and so' often as
five miles' of said road or track,
commencing at said terminal depot
aforesaid, and going westerly to
wards Forest Grove, and then
southerly to McMinville, is com
pleted ami constructed, forty
thousand dollars of said bonds
shall become the property of said
person or persons, and shall be de
livered to them by the proper of
ficers of said city.
The second section authorizes
the eit- of Portland, in addition
to other taxes, to levy a special
tax to pay the interest on these
bonds, and to provide or raise the
necssary funds by special taxation,
or otherwise, to pay the principal
sum of said bonds- as -the same
shall become due.
In considering this bill, the first
inquiry should be is it consistent
with the spirit and terms of our
State Constitution ?
In section 9 of article 11 of that
instrument.' noon the subiect of
corporations and internal improve
ments, we have following pro
"Sec. 9. No county, cit y, town,
or other municipal corporation, by
vote ot its citizens, or otherwise,
shall become a stockholder in any
joint stock company, corporation herv, less respectable than high
er' association whatever, or raise i wnv robbery, in this, that the pei
money lor, rr loan its creait. to, 01
in aid" of, an' such company, cor
poration or association."
Front this clause of the Consti
tution we arrive at the conclusion
that it was the purpose of the
framers of that instrument to erect
a substantial barrier iii our funda
mental law against all connections
of counties, cities and towns, and
other municipal corporations in this
State, with speculative enterprises
outside their own legitimate work
ings. They cannot become stock
h(ilders of" any joint stock com
pany, corporation or association,
nor' raise moneg for nor loan
their credit to or in aid of any
such company, corporation or as
sociation. These words are plain
and directi Do they prohibit the

enactment of such a, law as the one
under consideration ?
This bill 'provides that the citv
of Portland shall raise money to
the amount of $300,000 for" any
person or persons who shall cause
or procure a certain railway com
pany, or any . other eompany, to
make, their terminal depot and be
gin the construction of their road
or track within the city of Port
land, and proceed thence with
their work in a given direction and
to a given distance.
The wording of the bill is pe
culiar and circuitous, and appa
rently framed to avoid contact
with this clause of the Consti
tution"; for it is claimed that while
the prohibition clearly extends to
joint stock companies, corpora
tions and associations, it does not
extend to "person or persons." I
fail to see the exception here
claimed. A corporation is a "per
son" in law, and the joining of
"persons" in an interest or enter
prise constitutes an association.
The Willamette Valley Railway
Co mpany, or any other corpora
tion, as a person in law, fulfilling
the conditions of its provisions,
could take the subsidy granted by
this bill, if it should become a law,
directly and without the interven
tion of any one, which is positively
forbidden by the Constitution.
I also think this bill, in its frame
work and purpose, to be against
the spirit ami tenor of the Con
stitution. It proposes to raise
money by taxation for objects not
therein contemplated or author
ized; and to yield this bar would
be to open one of the most dan
gerous doors at which clashing in
terests and growing speculations
tire now knocking. If a city can
be thus placed under a bonded
debt this year, a county can be
placed "uuder mortgage next year,
and while the State may be saved
from general debt by careful man
agement, it may be loaded down
b' the weight of local liabilities.
Section tive of the article be
fore cited provides that acts of the
Legislative Assembly incorporat
ing towns and cities, shall restrict
their powers of taxation, borrow
ing money, contracting debts ami
loaning their credit.
At the present session of the
Legislative Assembly, an act has
been passed authorizing the city of
Portland, for general and special
purposes, to extend its liabilities to
half a million of dollars, including
provision for city gas and water
works. Io extend the privilege of
contracting debts to the sum of
eie;ht hundred thousand dollars,'
not including interest thereon, in
an incorporated city of ten thou
sand inhabitants. I do not believe
would be such a restriction upon
the contraction of debts as was
contemplated by theframersof the
This bill is objectionable on
.1 i rii
another errounu. j oencve mat
without reference to constitutional
limitations, this bill goes beyond
the power of the Legislature to
impose a tax upon a people. Io
make a tax legitimate it must be
for a public and not for a private
purpose. . Taxation for the benefit
of an individual or a corporation,
upon considerations real or specu
lative, can never be upheld.
Upon this point I cannot better
express myself than in the wrds
of a late decision of the Supreme
Court of the State of New Vork,
used in reference to a similar case:
"In other" acts, stock, or some
pretended equivalent, is contem
plated as a consideration for the
bonds to be issued. But this act
authorizes a donation pure and
simple in other words, the Leg
islature has assumed to authorize,
fLmiio-li the instrumentality of
commissioners and the taxing
power, the taking of a certain
amount of property of one corpo
ration and donating it to another.
TF this can be done it is lciral rob-
notrator of the latter assumes the
danger arid infamy of the act,
while this act has the shield of
legislative irresponsibility." .
"While I do not join in" the
harshness and Imputation cm
bodied in these frords of this de
cision, I regard the drift of its
authority to be most wholesome
For the foregoing reasons T have
failed to approve said bill, and
herewith file the same in the office
of the Secretary of State, with my
objections thereto, this 27th .day
of October, 1870. .

COURTESY OF BANCROFT LIBRARY,
Republicsn T-xtravagance hnd
From t'.K- X. Y. Democrat.
Republican political speakers
who have been sent out by the ad
ministration to defend it against
charges of corruption, fraud and
extravagance, have prated much
about the reduction of taxes and
the econom "that has been prac
ticed by the Grant administration."
This talks very well, but when
you come to look at the figures
they don't hold out for the benefit
of the Republican orators and ed
itors, worth a cent.
Let us see.
The average yearly expenses of
several Democratic administra
tions are given as follows:

.K3.9 15.249. 14
figures are from oilicial
and, therefore, perfectly
reliable to be used by speakers and
writers in their political arguments
against the infamous extravagance
of the administration under Grant
and his Republican cormorants.
These figures will show you:
1; That the total expenses of
twenty-four years of the adminis
tration of the Government by
Jackson,- Van Buren, Polk, Pierce,
and Buchanan, were $859,G92,
2. That the expenses of the
first year of Grant's administration
were" $100,796,3.35 00;
Now, if the expenses of Grant's
one year- be multiplied by four it
will be ascertained how much will
be the cost of M whole term of
four years, which will be over
seven hundred and sixty-seven
millions of dollars, very rfeatly as
much as twenty-four years Cf
Democratic administration cost.
In these estimates no account
whatever is made of what is called
the public debt and the interest
thereon. That is left out of the
question, hence no Republican will
have an opportunity to say that
the debt is the cause of the in
If any one should argue that
there are more people now than
when these Democratic adminis
trations were in existence, let them
take a look at these facts: Dur
ing the twenty-four years of Dem
ocratic government the average
cost per capita was 1.77 (includ
ing the expense of the Mexican
war). Now the average cost un
der the Grant administration, j)er
eajx'td, h 84. 7G three times greater
than when we had Democratic

Does any onewoin1cr that Mr;
Dawes, Republican Congressman
from Massachusetts, denounced the
Grant administration as more ex
travagant than that of Andrew
Johnson, in that it squandered,
fortj'-scven millions of dollar's pier
annum more than did Johnson's.
If we should include the debt
and interest, the statements would
then show the average expenses
per capita under Democratic ad
ministration to be 2, while under
Grant it would be 10.28.
These are facts for the deople to
consider. Let them be used by
Democratic speakers and by Dem
ocratic editors on every occasion
when possible, that those who v.otc
may know how Republicans are

In 1860 the Democrats were
howled out of place and power,
because it was asserted they were

charges were true, the corruption
