Eugene Man, Former High
way Commissioner Is I
K. J. Adams of Eugene has ac
cepted the appointment as secre
tary to Un.iea States Senator-elect
Stanfield ana will accompany Stan
field to Washington within the
next fortnight, according to an an
nouncement made yesterday.
"It is my wish to have my of
fice in Washington thoroughly and
efficiently organized to care for
all business that should be attend
ed to by us in the capital." said
Mr. Stanfield. "We will have an
office staff that will be able to
look after business promptly and
effectively." !
The new secretary to the senator-elect
came to Oregon from
Michigan in 1911 and has been
identified with constructive pub
lic effort, -particularly highway
building. He was a member of the
first state highway commission
operating under the present sys
tem, and a delegate to the Repub

m:ttee which will report It out
favorably if the two chairmen are
able to sway the other members,
for Gordon himself is chairman of
the house committee and Patter
son, chairman of the senate com
mittee, is very close to the gov
ernor and represents him in the
senate at this session.
. . Box Factory Impracticable . .
According to the governor's
message, it I h!s intention under
the Gordon bill, to start the es
tiblishment of a box factory at
the prison. Persons familiar with
the timber Industry declare this
i3 visionary. It is Raid that tim
ber suitable for making boxes
could be brought to the state
prison only at great expense, mak
mr eny profit from the proposed
industry utterly impossible. Fur
ther, it is known that the only
timber company in a position to
furnish the material is opposed to
the scheme.
It la apparent that the gover
nor's desire to rid the prison of
the flax industry is merely a per
sonal one. The flax plant at the
nenitentiary wis close to the
heart of the late Governor Withy
combe and was fostered by him,
alwavs over the opposition of Mr.
Olcott In th days when the board
of control had anything to do
with the InduKtrv . irta ots,
p eamr governor k-e-franltfy ald
mat ne wisneti the .flax plant
were eliminated from the prison,
and of late he has not been in ac
cord with Robert Crawrord, su
perintendent of the industry at
the prison, as to Its future dispos
al. ! .
Crawford Absent ,1
Crawford is a flax expert, hav
ing been reared in that industry
in Ireland. He was first em
ployed as superintendent of the
prison plant under the Withy
combe administration, but because
of a disagreement over compen
sation was ousted by Governor
Withvcombe. ; Not long after Mr.
Olcott became governor he placed
Crawford -gain at the he?d of the
Industry. Crawford believes the in
dustry should be further devel
oped at the prison by establishing
twine spinning machinery which
he declares could he done at very
little expense to the state. But
Oovernor Olcott wants to put the
industry out. '
To accomplish his purpose there
are Indications that the gover
nor is taking advantage of Craw
ford's absence from the state. In
formation is that Crawford, about
the first of the year, asked for a
short vacation, lie was told, says
the information, to take three
months on pay. Crawford went
to Ireland to visit his old home.
When he returns he will rind the
hoard of control authorized to sell
off the flax industry. While the
I bit! implies that it will not be sold
, untii the board holds that private
I enterprise is in a position to car
! ry on the industry the measure is
indefinite and leaves the board
free so to decide at any time af
ter the law is effective.
Plan Attracts "Attention
The prison flax plant is attract
ing nation-wide attention, and
has demonstrated that Oregon is
capable of producing on a large
scale 'flax of high grade. If the
prison plant Is sold there Is dan
ger that the incipient industry
will he killed. It is an industry
that Influential people of Oregon
have been working on for years
and they have looked to the pri
son plant to show the world what
the state can do in flax produc
tion. Marion county farmers who
have raised flax for the prison
plant under contract with the
state object to the plant's remov

is being debated in the senate,

a new revenue bill and to con

vision should be based."
Chairman Fordney also scouted

mittee's mind was made up with
respect to the sales tax.

before the legislature convened.
Mr. Wilkins. Chtef of Police Jen
kins of Portland, garage men and
others urged numerous changes
in the bill last night, some of
which would conflict with the
uniform agreements reached by
the state officials. The commit
tee has adopted a policy of con
forming to those agreements, to
avoid embarrassment among the
three states, but so urgently did
the speakers present their objec
tions that th?y may be taken into

One conflict was Mr. 'Wilkins'
objection to the speed limit fixed
for intersections and streets pass
ing school houses. Another Is
the regulation of pedestriaus on
paved highways. Mr. Wilkins and
others fay pedestrians should
walk on the left hand side of
the roads so they will face mo
tor cars meeting them and be on;
the opposite side of the road
from cars overtaking them. An
other difficulty arose relative to
the distance luggage should b-3
allowed to protrude from the
sides of automobiles. Ttelativo tn

nins said the Washington legisla
ture has not yet drafted its bill.
but is Waiting On the Orpnn lor.
Chief Jenkins insisted on the
embodiment of a plan In the bill
to facilitate the detection of au
tomobile thieves. Several plans
were suggested. He was instruct
ed to have his ideas drawn up In
tbe form of a bill and nreuntal
to the committee.
Senator Hall, chairman of the
committee, warned all members
to ave their proposed amend
ments in by Wednesday morning.
