New Beckman Bill, Popular
Vote on Constitution
Provision Downed
Thomas Bill Fate in Doubt
As 14-14 Votes Defeat
The state senate last night re
fused steadfastly to give way to
a renewed drive to pot through
"wet" legislation In the closing
hoars of the session. In succes
sion the members voted down
the "new" Beckman 'beer bill.
15 nays and 14 ayes, while the
upper house also disapproved the
Hall resolutions for a statewide
vote on Oregon's constitutional
prohibition provisions by a 17
to 12 vote.
The debate called forth sharp
personalities between the mem
bers. Senator Staples took the
lead In fighting the beer bill,
holding at the outset the meas
ure could hot be discussed under
the senate rules since a similar
bill had been defeated. Unable to
sustain his point, the Multnomah
senator claimed the beer bill was
only an entering wedge to restore
the evils of the liquor traffic in
Claim Regulation .
Of Beer Necessary
Proponents of the beer bill
claimed the measure was neces
sary to give Oregon some control
over the beer traffic inasmuch as
congressional approval of beer
seemed only a matter of days.

cents to 91 ana piceu icicira

had been defeated in the senate
earlier in the session.

Senators uurite, z,unineriuu
Brown, recommended against eon-
eurrence in tne nouse im-
ments and that the measure be
approved as amended by the sen-
ate. The minority report was
signed by Senator Goss and Bynon
ana recommenuea "' 1
, concur In the house amendments.
Senator Goss argued for the
passage of this bill .as amended by
the house.
"If you want to accomplish
what you intended you had better
concur ln the house amendments
to this measure", Goss declared.
"The original measure was hastily
drafted and was sent to the sen
ate without proper consideration
on the part of its author. The
house amendments have made
this a workable measure and the
utility commissioner is clothed
with ample authority".
Still Thinks Thomas
Want Bill Killed
"We were told that Thomas
wanted this bill passed ln its or
lglnal form or not at all". Sen-
ator Bynon declared. "The more
I have thought about this state -
merit the more I am inclined to
bellove that Thomas wants the
measure killed. We should place
this bill ln Thomas lap and then
If he doesn't perform properly he
should step down and out.
Bynon said that under the
bouse amendments the utility
commissioner would hare control
over all expenditures by public
tlHtles which would protect the
public against rate base inflation
House Amendments
Deemed Ridiculous
Senator Zimmerman eharged
that the house amendments were
ridiculous and would make a mon
key out of the utility com
"If the bill becomes a law as
amended by the house the situa
tion would be worse than nnder
the existing statutes," Senator
Burke averred.
Senator Hess branded the house
amendments as unfair and not in
line with what the senate had at
tempted to accomplish.
Hess said the measure would
aot give the utility commissioner
any control over the holding; cor-
Bota the majority and minority
reports were rejected by a vote or
14 to 14, with Senators Allen and
Mann absent.

Unfairness to Subdivisions
Which Have Already cut
Costs Brought out
Burke Says Ways and Means
Savings are "Bunk" but
For Lowered Costs
The Gordon bill which called
for -an enforced reduction of all
tax levies for counties and other
subdivisions by 20 per cent, was
snowed under in the senate wea
nesday afternoon, 25 to 2. The
vote was preceded by bitter de-
nate in wnicn senator our
charged that the ways and means
committee had not made finan
cial savings commensurate with
the demands of the times.
Senator Woodward said the
measure would give genuine re
lief throughout the entire state
and was wanted by the taxpay
ers. "The only protests I have re
ceived against this bill came from
persons who are now on the pub
lic payroll". Woodward declared.
The measure was opposed by
Senator Upton who said there has
been no demand for this legisla
tive to reduce local budgets.
'This is the business of the coun
ties", Upton averred, "and is for
eiifn to the duties of this or any
other delegations". Telegrams
were read indicating that virtual
ly all of the larger school districts
ln the state were opposed to the
Senator Hazlett branded the
bill unfair and a violation of the
constitution. Other senators who
opposed the measure on the floor
were Goss, Burke, Wheeler, Hess
and Bynon. "If Multnomah coun
ty wants this bill let them have
it", Goss said. Wheeler said the
bill was unfair and would result
in ruin for many school districts
in Lane county.
Senator Burke charged that the
savings claimed by the ways and
means committee of this legisla
ture were bunk and that the bud
get had been Increased rather
than reduced. "The onlr utIup
uiai nas oeen made bv the Meier
administration was the diffr.
ence between the prices of nork
and beans two years ago and to-
aay , Burke said.

New Issue of Federal Banl

Leaders Explain
WASHINGTON, Mar. 9 Thurs
day (AP) President Roosevelt
and congressional leaders are la
complete agreement on emergen
cy legislation to be passed by the
new congress today which will
permit Immediate opening of Sx
great number of banks.
A protracted conference at the
White House last night brought
unanimous approval of both dem
ocratic and republican congres
sional callers for a new issue of
currency based upon government!
Congress also was represented
as ready to continue in the firm
grip of President Roosevelt the
dlctatoriol control over the na
tional gold supply which he as
sumed in his historic proclama
tion Sunday.
While Mr. Roosevelt was con
sulting until after midnight the
men on Capitol Hill, a new and
forceful drive upon gold hoard
ers, carrying a thinly disguised
threat of publicity, was begun by
the federal reserve board.

Of Gold Hoarders
Upon orders from Secretary
Woodin the member banks were
instructed to report the names of
all. persons who withdrew gold
from members banks after Febru
ary l, and have failed to re-deposit
it by March 13.
The new currency, designed tat
meet the public need for a medi
um of exchange, requires new
legislation, and that is assured. It
also is assured of the backing of
the "sound money" advocates in
This currency, already in pro

upon sound government obliga
tions, rather than the 40 per cent
gold requirement of present cur
