The above heading Is literally

.: Within the past few days there
has grown up a feeling of resent
ment in the house to the alleged
disposition of the senate Ao med
dle with . the acts of the house.
If the house takes the position
that the senate, is slapping at the

particulars it ia entirely? possible
that the substitute bill will go
down to defeat. . '. ::r " -j

The substitute bill attempts to
follow the ,-..!, federal v. terminology
and exemptions as far as .possible,
it is claimed, but does not require
that duplicates of the federal re

commission. ; An '. affidavit - that
all Income reported . under the
federal act. is included in the state
report. Is . provided. . - V " . ";

Portland had a bitter blizzard, re
