by C'ranier Met ccat
, The measure, which makes
flevernor Patterson the state bud
Kf t officer, was approved in the
senate yesterday following a spir
ited debate. This 'part of the ad
ministration program was said to
he extravagant rather than following-
the lines of economy.
Twenty-one, senators voted in fa
vor and nine opposed the bill,
which had been-previously passed
hy the house.,
The a-ttack against the budget
officer bill was .led by Senator
Klepper and Senators Upton and
Joseph joined with - him in active
opposition. 1 v
;This.-;bill is ' the most vicious
legislation that has been.. intro
duced. this session," declared Sen
ator Klepper. "Under ita provi
sions the. governor, alone would
pass on the requirements of all
state departments, boards and
commissions.,' lie would have the
same authority with relation to
the expenditures of the govern-:
mental functions. I have discov
ered no demand for this legisla
tion in view.of the act that the
budget is now handled satisfac
torily under- the direction of the
state board of control.
j"The bill should be defeated
I and the budget law should remain
a It is at 'the present time. If
'lithis bin is l appxp.yed I predict
mat there wm be built up in this
state a. political machine' that will
put Tamaay to shwe. .
Senator ! Upton said that while
he was aware that the skids were
greased and the bill would pass
be could not allow it to" go by
without explaining his vote.
"This is not an economy meas
ure." said. Senator ' Upton. As I
read the bUl it differs from the
present law in three particulars.
The most, important' variation
from the existing law Is that it
places all the. authority now vest
ed. In the' budget commission in
one man. , It . also increases the
cost of bperatins. the ' budget de-

ACTION ALl RE3IOVED
Supporters of IcXary - Hapffen
Measure Now Turn Atten
tion to House
WASHINGTON. Feb. 8 (AP
Obstacles to a senate vote on
the McNary-Haugen farm relief
bill were removed today when
unanimous agreement was reached
for a final showdown on. the
measure not later than .4 p. m.
Having obtained this agree
ment, supporters of the. bill
turned their .attention toward the
house, where efforts will be made
for a final roll call early next
week. The rule giving the meas
ure right of way with provisions
for 13 hours general debate. will
be called up tomorrow, with in
dications that the remainder of
the week will be spent in discus
sion of the rule and the bill
Pleased oyer the situation,
senate supporters of the proposal
sat back in their chairs and smil
ingly listened to opponents attack
its provisions. When the shafts
of the opposition failed to arouse
them. Senator Lenroot, republi
can, Wisconsin, turned on them
with a charge that they were re
luctant to defend the bill beeause
they could not answer the charge
that it was unconstitutional.
While the senate supporters
rested, advocates of the legisla
tion outside of congress came, for
ward to its defense. In a letter
to George N. Peek, of the farm
committee of 22, Frank Q. Low
deri, former governor of Illinois,
said the Curtis-Crisp bill was not
an adequate substitute for the
McNary-Haugen measure, as its
omission of the equalization fee
'wholly misses the point of legis
lation we have been advocating."
Support also came .from Gif
ford PInchot, former governor of
Pennsylvania, who said in a
statement that he favored the bill
because he believed it would help
the farmers and was worth a triaL
He charged that Secretary
Mellon . killed the bill at the last
session, and that he had "every
reason to' believe he will try jto
kill t this year." He further
charged that Representative Og
den L. Mills, republican, New
York, who recently resigned as a
house member .to accept the posi
tion as under-secretary of -the
Jreasury, had . withdrawn his
resignation to lead the fight In
the house against the bill.

Schulmerlch BUI Concerning Fil-
ing hn Water Rights Report el
No action was taken on the bill
affecting the drainage problem in
southeast Salem at the meeting of
the senate committee on irrigation
and drainage last night.
Several persons affected wero
heard, but as Mr. Giesy the spon
sor of the measure could not bo
present and be given a hearing
and ' as the committee wished to
gather some information as to the
probable cost of the work to drain
the area they decided to withhold
their recommendation until a later
Frank Durbin spoke at length
in opposition to the bill saying in
part that if the bill was passed
that it would practically ruin the
farming land and that the expense
would be so great that the land
owners outside of the city limits
would lose their property.
Newell Williams, ' a property
owner within the city limits, said
that sanitary conditions in the dis
trict were bad owing to the fact
that the basements filled up with
water and remained in this condi
tion for long periods.
When asked if it was not pos
sible to have a drainage district of
property just within the city limits
former state engineer Percy Cup
per said that, the condition that
caused ..the flooding of the district
was without the city limits and
that the water must be taken care
of several miles up Mill CTeek. Mr.
Cupper said that he could not give
any close estimate of the cost of
draining the district but consider
ed that if Mill creek was straight
ened out at a cost of about $200 9

CENSORSHIP CLOSES DOWN OX

District ' ;
LONDON, Feb. 8. (AP) The
veil is still drawn ocer events at
Lisbon, no dispatches having been
received from, the Portuguese capi
tal today, and the censorship has
closed down even on the course
of events at Oporto.
The only indication in London
of the continuing of the gravity of
the situation in Portugal was the
news that a. British cruiser was
leaving Gibraltar for Lisbon, and
that two destroyers had been dis
patched to Oporto for the protec-'
tion of British interests.
Mail advices from frontier
points, bringing events up to Sat
urday, states that all the politic
ians of the extreme left wing of
the democratic party had betaken
themselves to the headquarters of
the revolutionary troops in Oporto.
The authorities had ordered a
curfew all shops in Lisbon tb be
closed and traffic suspended in
the streets after four o'clock in
the afternoon, while the marine
arsenal was heavily guarded.
The government had also de
creed that safe conducts during
curfew hours would be granted
only to persons whose professions
required them to be abroad in
these hours. Many had been ar
rested for infringing these regu
lations. Three papers, Omundo,
Infomaclo, -and Orebatt, had been
suspended and their editors Im
prisoned. There has also been
trouble with, the milling interests
who are licensed by the govern
ment's orders regulating bread
baking to prevent speculation.

question of repealing the six per
cent tax limitation constitutional
amendment be submitted "'iV'tlhe
people of Oregon at the next' gen

' Senator Hare put up an argu
ment for the minority report, de
daring that the six per cent limita

ing them as it had been intended.
, The tax limitatipn amendment
is a humbug and a. farce, accord
ing to Senator Moser. ' .
"It has -not accomplished: the
purpose for which it was intend
ed..' he 'said, "and instead" of re
ducing taxes it Has' placed an em
bargo against raising money for
Decessary governmental activities.
We should repeal the amendment;"
. It -was the contention of Senator
Hall that the tax limitation
amendment had resulted in in
creasing taxes six per cenj each
year regardless- of " whetheB the
tunas were neeaea.

should be eliminated from the con

amendment, wnicn ne saia naq
worked satisfactory to a majority
of the taxpayers.
"Had it not been for this
amendment,'-' said Senator Bailey,

saddled on real property instead
of opining up new sources of' rev

Senator Joseph declared that

which to care for the state's de
