Senator C. J. Smith has prepared
ills reply to the letter sent him by
tho governor, asking whether or not
the.)riditloii of i..is county demands
a M'clal session of tho legislature,
and will send It to Salem tomorrow,
The senator reviews the situation1
in: detail. He states that the county
Is Jn good condition financially, wit
that the Judgo of the county wishes
the session because -no lack of a tax
will throw a burden of Interest on
the county, iiio school districts are
all Iu favor of the session, for most
of them aro badly In need of tho
funds raised by the special tax, and
somo cannot conveniently continue
their sessions without it. Tho cities,
as a rule, are more independent,
though they, with one or two excep
tions,, are anxious for a session.
Taking all of these things Into
consideration, the senator thinks It
is the wish of the people of the coun
ty that the session bo called, and ho
therefore recommends It.
In speaking of the matter of legis
lation, the senator takes the stand
that he is not In favor of any other
legislation than will cover the tax
question, and thinks that tho session
should be held down to a few days.
Vet there are those in tho county
who have things they would llko to
have In ought before tho legislature,
and so advise him. However, the
senator would not bo in favor of tak
ing auy outside matter up unless It
were really of Importance and an
emergency. With Iheso suggestions,
he asks that the session be convened,
