Long and Hot Argument is
Heard on Both Sides of
Question; Vote Stands 30
For and 29 Against; Many
Take Part.'
Legislation Would Increase
Number in House to
80; Senate, 40
' The two weeks of comparative
quiet in tbe house of representa
tives was broken yesterday when
the committee on resolutions re
turned the Joint resolution on re
apportionment of seats in the
bodies of th state' legislature for
the consideration of the house.'
' After a long and not argument
on both sides of the question, in
Which the majority of members in
the, house took part, the vote
stood "30 for the resolution and
29 against. -
The resolution found its par
ticular support from Multnomah
; county, eastern and central Ore-:
gon delegations. Marion county
stood firm against the resolution,
i The resolution provides for an
increase In the number of senators
to 40 and representatives to 80.
1 Representative T. B. Kay of
. Marion, one of the first to speak
on . the subject, opposed the res
olution on the grounds ; that the
appointment of a special commit
tee to look into the matter was a
reflection on the ability of the
house and that the adoption, of
such a resolution would disturb
the harmony of the session and
detract attention from the other
bills to be presented later. This
was the argument of practically
all who opposed it.
"I hate to see any representa
tive take the position that there
has been no development in east
ern Oregon in the past ten years,
said Burdlck of Crook, Deschutes,
Grant, Jefferson, Klamath, and
Lake, and a leader for adoption,
as he pictured the growth and im
provement of the eastern part of
the state, and pointed out the in
justice of the representation from
that section.
Here Representative Kay sug
gested that the bill be referred to
tbe election and privilege commit
tee rather than to a special com
mittee. To this Representative Galla
gher of Harney and Malheur sug
gested that the personnel of the
committee be Investigated to as-
' certain it it were a fairly, repre
sentative committee of the entire
' state. .
Carter of Jackson expressed
himself as being against the bill
because of the Influence it would
have on subsequent measures; al
so he considered it wrong to bring
. up this particular measure at the
middle of the session. ,
. -Lynn of Multnomah, who Intro-
, duced the resolution in the house,
stated that he hoped that in con
sidering the reappointment meas
ure the state would be considered
as a whole aad not In sections.
"One of the essential things in
the government of this. state is
: equality," said .Mr. Lynn. "Mult
i nomah does not ask for much.
Her plan Is to give all the other
counties all they can have legally
and give Multnomah what Is left"
According to Mr. Lynn this would

s A fight was precipitated in the
senate yesterday afternoon when
majority and minority reports
were brought out by the commit
tee on medicine, dentistry and
pharmacy on the Staples-Farrell-Hume
bill to regulate drugless
therapeutics. After a- bitter de
bate the bill was allowed to pro
ceed on its way to ) third read
ing. " ' - -
Senator' Hume moved adoption
of the majority report in favor of
the bill and Senator Smith, phy
sician by profession, moved that
the minority report be accepted
for the majority report, which
would ' mean indefinite postpone
ment. -
The bill Is in the Interests of
the naturopaths.
Senator Smith averred that the
measure throws open the door for
anyone to be known as a doctor.
"There Is no such thing- as drug
less therapeutics." he said.
; Senator Hume declared the
drugless doctors are curing oer-
sons whom the' medical ' doctors
cannot 'heal. 'He excoriated the
use of drugs and surgical knives
and said the bill calls for a care
ful regulation and - standardiza
tion of the naturopathic school
: Senator 'Ellis opposed the bill
standing for the minority report.
sills and Farreil engaged In a de
bate on the question.
: Moser interpreted the bill " to
mean a raising of the standard of
the drugless physicians and sup
ported the bill." -
T Lachmund of Marlon supported
the measure In a vigorous speech.
Senator Eddy discovered what
he said was . an oversight in the
MIL , He asserted - that medical
doctors frequently use drugless
methods and that under the bill
ther could not do. so without ap
plying to the board created by the
bllL Eddy asserted that the bill
contained no guarantee that the
drugless , school operating under
it would have a thorough knowl
edge of anatomy and that unless
the bill could be re-referred so as
not. to Infringe on the rights of
the medical doctors and so that
it would guarantee scientific
knowledge by the school It Is
framed to benefit he could not
sunnort it. '
'Hume read parts of the bill to
show that It would not Interfere
With the regular -medical -profession.
Senator Joseph sided with
Eddy and asked unanimous con
sent . to have the bill amended.
This , was accorded and two
amendments were made. 'One
makes the bill not applicable to
medical doctors or surgeons. The
other.-instead of extending: the
drugless physicians the same le
gal standing as the regularly li
censed physicians, extends simply
legal standing as drugless pny-
sk-lans." -: 'j '
Dr. Smith In his closing speech
excoriated the naturopathic
They know nothing about
anatomy, said Smith. "The
barber from Grants Pass who or
ganized the naturopaths, and
who is out here In the peniten
tiary knows nothing about anat
omy or anything else relating: to
this subject."
The minority report failed to
pass and the bill will go to the
third reading.

Rep. Foster Expresses Ap
preciation of Schwab's
War Service
J NEW YORK. Jan. 25. Over
come by hia emotions, Charles M.
Schwab temporarily broke -down
on the witness stand today before
tte Walsh congressional commit

eyes, he denied r charges of wit

Schwab Admits Conference.'
Mr. Schwab had been 'recalled
to give testimony regarding ship
construction matters while he
was director general of the em
ergency fleet corporation. After
his testimony, his attention was
called by; Representative P. M,
Foster ; to testimony that since
making his denial last Friday of
the charges he had conferred with
Perley Morse of" Perley Morse &
company, auditors, who found the
alleged voucher. "
Mr. Schwab : admitted he , had
talked with" Mr. Morse. ' staling
that a Mr. Wildman, whom' he
had' known several years, came
to him with - the statement I that
Mr. Morse 'was a" man of i the
highest repute."
' I listened," Mr. Schwab said,
"and said that if what you say
Is true,' and " what I 'assure you 1
can prove Is true, that I received
none-of this money, should ; not
Mr. Morso be willing to make a
statement" that he' has made a
mistake?' Mr. Wildman said he
thought he would "do so."'
As a result of this conference,
a meeting between Mr." Schwab
and Mr. Morse was arranged
later and the witness said he . re
peated to Morse what he had said
to V3Idman "that I was now at
the end ' of a 40-year business
career, and that it was a matter
so indescribably deep in my heart
to be charged with something of
that kind, that I hoped' he would
correct it. "
Voice Ibriaks by Sobs.
"He .'would 'not do it." Mr.
Schwab' continued. "He said
there were explanations and rea
sons "? r i
f Here the steel -man's voice be
came husky-and his frame shook
with suppressed sobs. ,
' r hope", you will1 excuse me.

the committee," he started to
continue, "but ," and here
bis voice broke again.
Tor a moment 'he endeavored
jto control himself. He gave up

rolled great tears, which he then
wiped away. . ..
The committee room was filled
and It . was evident that he had
the sympathy of all by-the sil
ence that prevailed a silence
broken by Representative Foster,
who said; -
"I cannot help making this re
flection. . I want to express on
the record my appreciation of the
manner Mr, Schwab, in which
you have Introduced evidence
concerning this , voucher. -. Aside
from my membership on this com-
mlttee. I want to express my ap
preciation as .an American citt-
xen for the services you. have
rendered our country.
l Services Appreciated.
'There is no Jury to be affect
ed.' or court to be influenced,-but
I say, that out of an appreciation
of the situation I feel I am com
pelled to give expression to it."
This statement was greeted Dy
"I thank you very much," Mr.
Schwab replied. "That was the
substance, of . my , conversations
with Mr, Morse."
- He had ' regained -' control of
himself and In answer to the
chairman's Question; said he had
never instituted any steps to have

matters were never brought to

BOSTON. Jan. 2 5. Rear Ad
miral W. S. Sims at a mass meet
ing arranged by the Loyal Coal
ition tonight, said that to him it
was inconceivable that American
citizens of Irish nationality could
support the Sinn Fein, "knowing
what they do about them."
"How any American of Irish
descent can support a party that
was our implacable enemy during

Sinn Fein activities, he assert-
I ed, necessitated the diversion of
vessels from the convoy of troops
and of merchant ships,

great many of your sons at the

we were- obliged to divert those

Admiral ' Sims expressed the
opinion that the promotion of the

Willamette university, when the

terday, and the Catholic educator

tive to the rights of normal
schools operated by the Catholic
Senator Hume's bill, which
would cause to be stricken from
the list of standardized schools In
the state the two Catholic norm-
al schools at Oswego and Mount
AngeL was under consideration.
While tbe bill reaches all schools
of the kind maintained by any
church it happens that these two
are the only ones now affected,
and It proved to be a case where
Methodist and Presbyterian and
Baptist went to bat for Catholic,
and Catholic went to bat for his
Protestant brother.
