One Hour . and SO .Minutes Taken
for Agreement; Judgment
Jan. 25. (AP)--. J. Frank
Norris. fundamentalist Baptist
preacher of Fort Worth, was ac
quitted here today of a charge of
murdering Dexter E. Chipps of
Fort Worth.
Former Sheriff -Miller of Travis
county handed the verdict to the
Judge. It read: "We, the jury,
find the defendant,-J. Frank Nor
ris, not guilty. i v
There was a rush to Norris and
his wife. The judge had threaten
ed a $100 tine or three days In
jail to anyone making a disturb
ance. There were . a few hand
clasps by .women as the verdict
was read but Judge Hamilton or
dered the bailiffs to arrest anyone
continuing the clapping. The
court said "they would be in con
tempt of court.
It is understood there were two
ballots, the second ballot being
taken because there was some .mis
understanding among the jurors
about the first.
The jury had reached a verdict
Within an hour- and 20 minutes
after going to the juryroom, but
the return of the verdict was de
layed 45 minutes by the. absence
of the defendant who had gone to
hisk hotel. . After the iudee had
been called from his home, and a
diligent search had been made for
ftorris, he finally was located In
the lobby of a hotel.
Fred i D. Holland, former Fort
worth policeman, was close to him
mrougnout his journey downtown
and back to the conrtroom. :

Voting at an open1 meeting last
nlrM thB housa committee on
automobiles and roads gave unani
mous sanction i to lit sz wnicn
provides for -the construction of
a short line -highway . connecting
the west side Pacific highway t
Portland with the Roosevelt high
way at Tillamook.
The bill, as drawn up .by Repre
sentative Loyal Graham of Wash-
construction of a highway B miles
in length, to extend through muu
nomah, Washington, Clackamas
and Tillamook counties. Such
highway i will be constructed over
what is known as the Wilson river
route already' surveyed by the
state highway commission, in such
manner as to eliminate all but two
curves and to furnish, the public
a scenic yet thoroughly safe road,
relieving tne heavy traffic on the
south Columbia highway.
The estimated cost of the road
was placed at $2,400,000, to be
met by a re-issue of bonds held in
reserve by the commission. The
highway -mission would be
granted the power to set and regu
late such tolls as they would deem
advisable. Present plans Indicate
that by' using a toll of $1 per car,
the road would be completely paid
for, at a great saving to the peo
ple, within eight years. A tthe
present time, the closest route be
tween Portland and Tillamook is
more than 110. miles, taking the
autoist over an extremely round
about course.
As expressed by Senator Harris
of Washington county,-the road is
a necessity if the future demands
of the coast counties are to be met.
If the present travel should ,be
kept up on -the established high
ways, Senator Harris brought out
. that repairs and improvements of
more than a million dollars would
be necessary in a short time. -
The construction of the Wilson
river highway will avert these ex
penditures and furnish a needed
link between traffic of the' Willam

Oregon Representative Gets Page
Boy to Cast' House Vote
, WASHINGTON, Jan: 25t-(AP
A practical joke which caused a
green page boy a vote on a house
toll call yesterday had a sequel In
the house today with its instigator,
Representative Sinnott, of Oregon,
receiving applause from his col
leagues. Sinnott said 1 th newspapers
were wrong today in saying that
Harry J. Brown, Washington cor
respondent for the Salt Lake City
Tribune, had told the page to cast
a vote for him, and that when the
elerk called the name of Repre
sentative Browne of Wisconsin,
the -boy voted.;
The Oregon representative then
owned up that he himself, in a
joking way, had told the boy to
vote for "Brown. and that before
he' could stop him, the boy voted.
Harry J. Brown was present, but
took no part in the conversation.
The vote was not recorded, 'as
tally clerks recognized that a mis
take had been made somewhere;
Traveling Salesmen Relieved From
Assessment; Fifty Per
Cent Asked
Senate bill No. 15 met defeat
in the house yesterday, . while
house bill No. 8, as amended by
the committee, -won the approval
of the house. Nineteen represen
tatives favored the senate bill and
19 opposed the, house bill.
Senate bill No. 15 would repeal
the peddlers license tax as passed
at the last session of the legis
lature. It. was introduced by Sen
ator Dunne. House bill No. 8 was
Introduced by Representative Bai
ley and referred to the committee
on automobiles and roads. Both
bills were made the special order
of business yesterday morning.
The committee amended the house
bill and it would continue the 60
per cent additional tax on cars
operating beyond the five-mile
radius. It also would relieve trav
eling salesment from this tax and
put the for-hire cars in the ad
ditional license tax class.
At the last session of the legis
lature the so-called peddlers bill
was passed, and has included the
traveling salesmen, which it was
not meant to do when originated.
It meant only to require door-to-door
peddlers and for-hire buses
and truckB to pay an additonal 50
per cent license fee te operate.
Representative Graham, who
has been upbraided by members
of the senate, explained his com
mittee's reasons for taking the
actions upon the two bills. "This
is neither , the time nor place to
answer the personal criticism,"
Mr. Graham said, "and -when this
'road program is completed those
worthy will receive the reward."
''This month is, the 10th birth
day of the road program of Ore

carry out. Those who came here

' Considerable opposition developed,-
at the public hearing, last
