"The people of Oregon have
been very kind to me during my
illness, and I certainly appreciat
ed my homecoming here today,"
Governor Meier declared Monday
npon the occasion of his first
visit to his office in the capitol
since August Illness which at
times was considered serious, has
kept him -confined to his room
in a Portland hotel much of the
time during the last 12 weeks.
.The governor made the trip
here by automobile, with Mrs.
Meier accompanying him. Fol
lowing an. exchange of greetings
with Dr. R. E. Lee Steiner. su
perintendent of the Oregon state
hospital, newspaper correspon

cials, Governor Meier entered bis
private office where he was wel

members of the executive depart
ment staff. On the governor's
desk trere a number of gifts re

cember 10, 1930, by Corporation
Commissioner McCallister the
"great potentialities" of Oregon's
"vast" insurance company were
soon to be ready to be paraded be
fore an unsuspecting public.
As the foundation stone of the
promotion, the personal subscrip
tions of the officers and directors
were to be frequently referred to.
Each man on November 14, 1930,
had given a solemn oath that he
was the owner of 200 shares of
Empire Holding company stock
and that the "actual money to the
company" was $20,000 from each
individual. The Statesman today
prints a fascimile of the applica
tion made to McCallister for the
stock selling permit, an applica
tion which undobutedly was the
leading consideration for the
granting of the license.
Clancy Only One
Who Paid in Full

Commissioner Mott on July 31,
1931, fails to reveal that any one
of the five original officers and
directors, ever paid in excess of
$2000 towards his 200 shares of
Instead of $20,000, O. P. Cosh

motion stock and no contracts,
agencies, or other property turn

cation. In f.-ct, each and every
director was Immediately credit
ed by the Empire Holding com
pany with $3000 commission to
wards his $20,000 stock subscrip
tion, this commission evidently
representing the director's indi
vidual services in selling himself
the stock.
W. R. Adams, who had lived at
Med ford and who now lives in
Portland and who was to be the
general physician of the insur
ance companies, paid $2000 in
stead of $20,000, was credited
with $3000 commission on his
own stock and like Coshow, Fetty,
Clancy. Keller. Stockman and
Robinson, gave notes for the bal

year period.

Governor Meier showed little
evidence of his recent illness, and
grasped firmly the hands of a
large number of persons who
called to pay their respects dur
ing the day.
"It certainly seems good to be
back in Salem", Governor Meier
said as he glanced over a number
of important official documents
on his desk.
Because of the large number
of persons who called upon Gov
ernor Meier during the day, no
ooara meetings were held.
The first official act of Gov
ernor Meier was that of writing
a check for $150, covering his
contribution to the unemploy
ment relief fund now being rais
ed by state officials and am'
ployes. Although Governor Mei

on one day's salary per month

Violates six per Cent tax
Limitation is Claim in
Complaint Filed
Violation of the six per cent
tax limitation of Section 11, Ar
ticle XI of the Oregon constitu
tion, is made in the 1931 intangi
bles tax law and the all tax lev
ies collected thereon are void,
Isabella M. A. Barnes declared
yesterday In a complaint filed in
circuit court here in which the
state tax commission and Gov
ernor Meier are made defendants.
The plaintiff asks for a restrain
ing order of the court to prevent
further collection of the 1931 tax
and for a refund of all 1931 In
tangibles taxes thus far paid.
The plaintiff contends that the
state tax commission made no
provision for the intangibles tax
enactment when the base was
made up in. December. 1930.
Since all proceeds from the 1931
Intangibles tax collection, after
collection expenses are paid, go
into the state general fund and
since the base determined by the
tax commission in 1930 was six
per cent higher than In 1929,
plaintiff holds the six per cent
limitation is exceeded by the ex
act amount of the net intangibles
taxes collected.
Maude B. Green and Mary A.
Caswell yesterday filed in circuit
court here an amended complaint
to their original attack on the
1931 intangibles tax. They al
lege that the measure is discrim
inatory, and thus in violation of
the state and federal constitu
tions providing for equal taxation
on all similar classes of property.
Since banks are omitted from
taxation upon intangibles, the
plaintiffs declare the law Is in
valid and ask for a restraining
order from the court upon the
tax commission, holding np any
inriner collection or the tax.

Acting upon a resolution intro
duced by Alderman Hal D. Pat-
ton, the council voted to inform
the Oregon Pulp Paper company
here that the street vacation voted
October 30, 1930, was done upon
the express understanding that the
company start construction on an
addition to the plant within six
months. The resolution points out
that this promise has not been
kept and gives the paper firm 90
days in which to begin work. The
resolution provides that the coun
cil shall take action to rescind its
vacation of a 40-foot strip on
Trade street if the paper company
delays more than three months In
starting work.
After extended debate, the al
dermen turned down an ordinance
which would submit to voters the

Change in Librarian at
Willamette is Rumored
The executive l committee of
Willamette university will meet
this morning at 10 o'clock with
several Important Issues pending.
Campus rumors indicate that a
change may be effected In the
head of the Willamette university
library, though no confirmation
has been received. Dr. Frank G.
Franklin is the present librarian.
Another Important question will
be whether or not a salary cut
for the professors will be made at
this time. A reduction la wages
for the Instructors was talked at
the June meeting of the board,
and further action or a decision
on this question may come up to
day. As yet no cut has been mads
In salaries.
As far as new buildings are
concerned, Willamette university
will have to wait longer, according
to President Carl a. Doney, who
states that no funds are available
for such purposes now. The $100,-
000 Ha user bequest was taken In
as part of tba endowment and can
not be decreased. The need for
new buildings Is acute, with
thoughts of a new library and a
science ball paramount.

Emperor Hirohito of Japan took
his first active step on connec

Owners Plan to Take him

If it does not rain tonight, Tus-
ko, Salem's only elephant resident
will go for an automobile ride to
Portland, not to return. Jack
O'Grady .and Bayard Gray, the 10
ton-animal's owners, announced
yesterday they had obtained the
use of an airplane hangar in east
Portland where they would lodge
their charge for the winter. Two
drum heaters will be Installed In
the building to keep him warm.
If it does rain, however, Tusko
will remain at the state fair
grounds yet awhile. As he is by
nature a resident of warmer
climes, exposure to the cold rains
would endanger his life, O'Grady
said. Already the elephant several

voluntarily one day's work a
month in order to permit any un
employed members to benefit by
the amount of work thus afforded.
There are 37 members In the un
ion here, about 30 of whom are
regularly employed. The union
has its meg at the state printing
office and in a number of com
mercial printing establishments
in the city. C. W. Brant is presi
dent of the local group.
No reduction In the existing
scale of $42 a week for day work
and $48 for night work has been
made, Brant said yesterday. Some
discussion about a reduction in
the scale has been carried on with
in the onion and a proposition for
a lower scale at the state printing
office Is now pending before the
state board of control.
It is understood that the univer
sity has a large amount of money
in the endowment fund which has
not been Invested as yet. Seversl
fair chances hare been deemed too
risky with a result that the mon
ey is still unplaced.
President Doney states that no
dance committee report will be
made. Last year a large number of
Willamette university men and
women signed a petition to have
a general hearing on the dance
question with the hope of gaining
official permission to hold student
The petition was submitted to
President Doney and referred to a
committee. According to Doney,
there has been no report on It as
yet and he gives no indication that
any report will be forthcoming.
Frequently students Inquire con
cerning the fate of the petition,
but the answers have been vague.

A score of women, employing
the power of eloquence as -a feet
ball eleven uses the povw -of
brawn, made a vain charge last
night upon the embattled line ef
the city council in an effort te
raise the $6000 budget appropria
tion for county health work in
1932 to the 1S0I0 marlr wUm
it heretofore has stood. The
torts or the women who renna
sen ted P. T. A. groups, business
organizations, and that greater
circle, the mothers of Salem, were
backed by prominent men la the
community in an honr'a itrsetl -
to secure the $2000 raise. While
the council's defense sagged. It
never failed, and when adlourn-
ment came, the 1932 budget for
neaitn stood unaltered and safely
past first and second readings.
David O'Hara, chairman of the
budget committee, tried to end
the game by asking suspension of
the rules and a final vote on the
budget, but other aldermen, dis
couraged by their failure to get
the $2000 advance for health, bat
undefeated, blocked the move. As
a result the 1932 city budget goes
