HIS BILL APPROVED
The first step In placing the
state highway commission in a
position so that it can sue and
be sued In courts was taken . In
the house Thursday, when H. B.
428. Introduced and staunchly de
fended by Representative Loner
gan of Multnomah, massed enough
votes to pass. ,
Representative Lonergan, fa
mous for his ability to present his
case vigorously . and forcefully,
waged a mighty battle for his
measure, although he was excel
lently aided by Carkln of tax mea
sure fame. ! -
- During the debate Mr. Loner
gan struck out rigorously against
any tendency to form "blocs" such
as has been intimated are now
forming in both the house and
senate. Legislators should rote
according' to their honest- conrlc
tions, and not as groups, he said
He pointed, out that during his
career In the house he had often
voted tor farm measures, and that
he would continue to do so when
he thought they deserved support.
Another delicate slap at bloc
forming was taken when Carkin
tose to defend the measure.
"When I am not a lawyer I am
a farmer," he said humorously.
"Just now I am voting as a far
mer, and as such I favor this bill."
The present status of the high
way commission was explained by
Mr. Lonergan In defense of his
Mil. The state engineer now has
power to pass on all disputes, and
his word is final. It was stated.
Thus the contractors or others do
ing business with the commission
hare no opportunity to be beard
if they have complaints.
If any person can prove that
the editor of the Oregon Voter is
lobbying, or that the publication
ia indulging In such work, It will
be immediately suspended. This
was the answer to the resolution
introduced Wednesday in the sen
ate which proposes the removal
of the Voter from its corner in
the- statehouse and which brands
whe publication as a "lobbyist."
The letter, signed by S. 8. Chap
man, editor of the Voter, was read
in both houses- Thursday.

hotly answered by others, ; who
said that the commissioner bad a

to do a great - deal . of traveling.
