The $10,000 deficiency appropriation

strenuous opposition on Hie part of
"Willamette valley millers and grain
dealers and several members of the
emergency board itself and represents
a compromise on the $19,800 estimated
by the department as needed to insure
its efficient operation for the next two
years! On the final vote' the motion to
authorize the appropriation was sup
ported by Governor and Secretary of
State Olcott, Seymour Jones, speaker
of the houie: Ptate Treasurer Hoff and
Herbert Gordon, chair of the i house

Washington Failure Blamed.
Tho need for financial aid for this
department, according to statements
made at the meeting, was due to the
failure of the Washington state grain
Inspection department to live up to its
agreement on a schedule of fees which
would have made the department sen-

ture had adjourned without making
any appropriation for the grain inspec
tion department the Washington legis
lature appropriated $40,000 to cover
overhead expenses, permitting of a ma
terial reduction in inspection fees
which the Oregon department was
compelled to meot in order to prevent
diversion of grain shipments to Puget
Sound points, it was stated. This re
duced fee, it was explained, was not
sufficient to meet the expenses of the
department and any attempt at an in
crease would only, result in driving
grain shipments away from Columbia
river ports. The public service com
mission was heartily supported in this
argument by representatives of tho
Portland dock comission and several
Portland 'grain companies who
