"Say It witH Flarreh X,
Governor Walter M. Pierce,
elected, on a platform of tax- re
duction and efficiency in govern
ment, was slowly turned on j the
spit in the house or representa
tives yesterday and roasted by
republican members, while Dem
ocratic leaders shouted their pro
tests and appealed to the house
to1 give, the governor time to make
good on his pre-election pledges.
The controversy arose over the
submission of an unfavorable re
port by the resolutions commit
tee on L. . McMahan's resolution
to have a committee wait Upon
the governor to receive from him
his suggestions for remedial1 leg
islation to cut taxes. 1 ' I ' j
As the matter now stands, the,
resolution occupies a prominent
place on the table of the house.
from which it may be lifted
whenever the occasion arises;
Tax Claim Scouted I
In substance', the resolution
said to the governor: "You said
you would cut taxes materially.
Where are the bills by which this
is to be done?" , n
- The resolution was Introduced
last Friday and referred to 'the
committee on resolutions. .'When
introduced, only one bill that
might be construed as an admin
istration measure" had beeh sub
mitted, and MoMaban proposed
to find out when the promised
measures would be forthcoming.
McMahan of .Marion, author of
the resolution, started the meet
ing when the resolution! was
headed for indefinite postpone
ment by charging that Governor
Pierce or no one else could re
duce taxes 50 per cent, as Pierce
had claimed. I
Want Bills Produced
, "Governor Pierce went over the
state and said, 'I will reduce your
taxes 50 per cent " said McMa
han, "and the fun of.it is! that
thousands of people took him at
his word. -No man can do! it
no man can cut them even 15 per
cent. I don't propose that Gover
nor Pierce shall ' be able to' eay
that the legislature wouldn't do
anything. Let the governor put
hia cards on the table' , p j ,
McMahan explained that this
was not an attack upon Governor
Pierce but was intended as pure
ly a measure of defense for the
legislature, o that charges of
lack of cooperation could not be
Representative Graham . of
Washington county t added his
voice to that of McMahan, and
said that he thought it was only
fair that ,the governor should pro
duce his bills.
'Election Is Over",
' At this Juncture Chief Clerk
Drager told Speaker Kubll that
a group of bills had just reached
the desk which apparently were
the ones expected from the gov
ernor. Announcement of this by
the speaker was greeted by 'the
governor's champions as proof of
the fact that the governor was al
ready functioning along the lines
suggested. - - '
V "The election is over," said
Love joy, Democrat of Multnomah,'
who compared Pierce with Presf
dent arding who he said had en
joyed sufficient legislative experi
ence to realize that the law mak
ing branch might resent his com
ing in and telling the nlembers
what he wanted done.
Bennett of Coos, who prefaced
his remarks by the announce
ment that he' was a Republican,
scored those who feared to ask
the governor what his program
"No one, Republican or Demo
crat,? said Bennett, "should be
afraid to ask this, and the gover
nor should not object to being
asked. He certainly has not out
lined the way to fulfillment of
his pledges, and this resolution
is certainly not an insult. . This
is a Republican legislature, and' I
fear that two or four year from
now 'someone may claim that this
legislature of 1923 failed to work
with the governor and the finger
of scorn may be raised at us un
less some decisive action is tak
en-" : . ; '" ' i '
"If oud governor knows how
to cut down the taxes, I should

thatthis be not made a partisan
The governor promised tax
reduction and a more equitable
distribution of the tax problem'
shouted the Albany representa
tive. "An income "tax. measure
has already been Introduced and
now we are told that a group of
additional bills from the gover
nor "'are here. For God's sake,

ity to make good. If this was 10

Committee Not Favorable

Senator Johnson yesterday suc
ceeded, in spite of a. unanimous
adverse report of the committee
on assessment and taxation, in
having laid on the table his bill
to change the taxpayirig .dates
from April and October to -June
and November. The committee
report was against the passage
of the bill andi Johnson started
his fight when a motion to adopt
the report'waa made, which would
have killed the bill. i
Johnson contended that the bill
was in the interest of the farmer

he declared, "because "sonflev of
these office holders and taxejjters

First Sale or Possession of
Narcotics to Be Classed'
As Felony . .
The Kirkwood bill, making the
first sale or possession, of narcotics
in violation of the state laws, a
felony, passed the house with 57
affirmative votes this morning.
In support of the hill Kirkwood
stated that although some author
ities apparently differed as to
whether the smuggling of narcot

appeared to be definitely estab
