WOULD REGULATE ALL
Hills Introduced Provide for Fixing
Manager's Compensation by Util
ities Commission Regulate
and Prohibit extensions.
SALEM, Or., Jan. 26. Three bills
aimed at Carey Act project manage
mcnts. and designed to place their
administration more fully under the
regulation of the Public Service Com
mission, have been Introduced in the
legislature, ono by Representative
Forbes, of Bund, one by Plowden
Stott, and one by Al. Jones.
One bill makes it Illegal for any
one to receive compensation In any
form whatever, as an official of a
Carey Act project, unless the salary
or compensation is fixed by the Pub
lie Service Commission.
Another bill gives the Public Ser
vice Commission "full and exclusive
authority to Investigate, regulate,
and otherwise supervise the opera
tions of Carey Act projects.
The third bill prohibits the ex
tension of any contracts entered Into
by the state relative to Carey Act
projects, when the terms of the con
tract have not been fulfilled by the
It Is felt by those well informed
that the second bill, granting the
commission fuller Jurisdiction "over
Carey Act projects, haa an excellent
chance for passage, as a strong senti
ment to such an end seems to exist,
especially in view of the delays
which have been experienced in the
recent investigation of the Central
Oregon Irrigation Company by the
State Commission, which was blocked
by the company In Its Initial efforts.
The text of the billa is as follows:
' The Compensation Act.
"Section 1. From and after the
passage of this Act, it shall be un
lawful for any person, firm or cor
poration engaged in the business of
reclaiming lands under what la com
monly known aa the Carey Act, to
pay or cause to be paid to any per
son, firm or corporation any money,
sums of money or other representa
tive of value in lieu of services, or
(or any person, firm or corporation
to accept, or receive any money, or
sums of money or other representa
tive of value in lieu of services with
out said compensation bo to be paid
or to be received having been fixed
by the Public Service Commission
as a reasonable charge for such ser
vice or compensation."
The second bill follows:
"Section 1. From and after the
passage of this Act the Public Ser
vice Commission of the State of Ore

and exclusive authority to investi
gate, regulate and provide rules and
fix charges for the construction, op
