Continuation of '

Northeott today appeared for
the first time since the opening of
his trial more than three weeks
ago .to give up his fight to escape
the gallows which, since last week
he has been waging single handed
as his own counsel, stumbled Into
court between two deputy sheriffs

he kept his eyes tightly closed as
he addressed to Judge Freeman
a plea for continuance. The re
spite granted, he tottered out, his
shoulders ; stooped and all the
Jauntiness which has marked his
usual demeanor in public missing.
Apparently brooding over the
many unexpected links in the
chain . of circumstantial evidence

wind around him, Northeott had
told Sheriff Clem Sweeters and
other custodians at the county Jail

coherent stories of conditions at

Two echoes of the "four ; river

election, resounded in the state
house lobby Tuesday when pro

prlation of water and wipe out
the work of years, according to
legislators who analysed them.
One was; written by Ralph Cow
gill, former legislator and : now

mission: ' The other came: ap

The measures seek to create a
state water commission, composed
of the members of the present
state reclamation commission, and
would authorize the government
to appoint two more members
when he considers It necessary.
All desiring water must secure a
license from this board, which is
supreme, save In matter of law.
No- license would be granted for
a longer period than 50 years.

With a northwest gale howling

Joint Ways and Means Com
mittee Sees Chance to
Eliminate Expense
The question of placing the
state labor bnreau on a self sup
porting basis was referred by the
joint ways and means committee
of the legislature Tuesday night
to a sub-committee consisting of
Representatives Angell and Col
lier and Senator Kiddle, who are
to confer with C. H. Gram, state
labor commissioner.
Three proposed bills were sub
mitted at the meeting by Mr.
Gram through which inspection
fees in the amount of 139,000 a
year wduld be raised. It was ar
gued that this revenue would go a
long way toward paying the ex
penses of the labor department.
These bills will be considered by
the' committee along with other
matters affecting the conduct of
the labor bureau.
It also was proposed to draft
bills through . which Inspection
fees would be raised for the sup
port of the state sealer of weights
and measures and the state board
of pilot commissioners. The ways
and means committee expressed a
desire that both of these depart
ments shall be placed on a self
supporting basis.
Another bill was ordered pre
pared providing for the collection
of tuition fees from non-resident
students at the Oregon normal
schools in excess of that charged
resident students.
The committee also proposed a
fee system in connection with the
osnduct of . the state dairy and
food commission, which will help
defray the costs of the depart
ment. Appropriations tentatively ap
proved by the ways and means
committee follow:
Southern Oregon normal
school, 168,534.
Superintendent of public in
struction, $63,216.
State textbook commission,
Oregon Blue Book, $4000.
Oregon historical society, $20,
000. The committee refused to -au
thorise an appropriation of $660
for the state board of higher cur
Vetoes of bills passed at the
1927 legislative session were sus

committee, as follows-:
For the promotion of land set
tlement. $30,000.
Oregon Social Hygiene-society,
Topographical may, $7600.
Premiums for county fair.
For construction of armories.
The committee recommended
