INVENTS NEW "COLD LIGHT"
French Scientist May Revolution
ise Electric Lighting.
F’aris— M. Dussaud, a French scient
ist, who has discovered a means for
the production of what he terms "cold
light," has made public some details
of his discovery, which it is thought
may revolutionize electric lighting.
He has constructed an electric lamp
in which the light is concentrated on
a single point and thence ia projected
through a lens, magnifying a thousand
fold. Thus he has succeeded in con-
contesting a 2000-candle power light
on one point, and in passing 32 volts
into an eight-volt lamp, with which
the ordinary light would burst.
Experiments with this lamp have
established that the new light abso
lutely is without danger, as no heat is
given off and it required 100 times
less current than the ordinary lamp.
It can be worked by a tiny battery or
sufficient motive power can be ob
tained from a jet of water from an or
dinary faucet or even a squirrel turn
ing a cage. The light has been tried
with great success in the Biarritz light
house, and M. Dussaud is working on
its application to searchlights for the
ministry of war.

on horticulture. Reams, of Jackson,
is chairman of the committee on rail

portant by reason of the proposal to
repeal the law placing the printer on a

When the judiciary committee met
for a final consideration of vetoed sen
ate bills the two that affect the ad
ministration vitally were given long
consideration. These are bills which
were introduced in 1911 by Wood, of
Washington. One provides that it
shall be unlawful for any official, trus-
tee, manager, director or superintend
ent or board of commissioners of any
public institution to create a defi
In event of a deficiency where the
life of the institution is imperiled a
board of emergency including the gov
ernor, secretary of state and state
treasurer, with the speaker of the
house, president of the senate and the
chairmen of the two ways and means
committees, may meet and cover such
an emergency. Any other means of
covering an institutional decfieincy
carries a heavy penalty under the bill.
The other Wood bill prevents the sec
retary of state from auditing a claim
for which there is no appropriation.
West is opposed to these two bills.
Kay is heartily in favor of them, ac
cording to numerous statements made
in the judiciary committee meeting.

dence is the main object of a bill
which was intoduced in the senate by
Carson, of Marion. The bill also pro
vides that all who did not register in
1912 must register with a notary pub
lic, justice of the peace or county clerk.
In addition to these provisions the hill
also prohibits anyone from voting in
the state unless he is registered, as in
the act provided.

Salem Appropriation bills making
demands on the state treasury to the
extent of $1,078,700 have been intro
duced in the Oregon legislature during
the first week of the session. Thia ia
a double reconi breaker, as it ia the
first time that appropriation bills have
ever been introduced during the first
This does not include the big appro
priation bills which are to come and
which will probably carry about $4,-
500,000, or perhaps more. Should this
pace be kept up for two or three
weeks then* is a possibility of the
appropriation bills ninning riot, but
many of the bills that have been in
troduced will be badly slaughten*d or
the appropriations which they carry
will be sliced with no gentle hand.
The actual total of the appropria
tions which are included in the bills so
far introduced is $1,578,700, but two
of the bills an* duplicati**, each carry
ing an appropriation of $500,000 for

It seems to be a pretty well settled
fact that this appropriation will not
get past the $250,000 mark nt the

bers are boosting for $300,000. A
great number of them have settled on

The appropriation of $15,000 for the
biennial period, which has been intro
duced in connection with McArthur's
bill establishing a state board of con
trol, is really a substitute appropria
tion for a similar amount which is car
ried in the State l*urchasing board

two years ago.
In event the Mc
Arthur bill goes through, it will virtu
ally do away with the State lhirchas-
ing board by placing the duties of that
board with the state ta/ard of control.
A few of the bills have been intro
duced for agricultural ex|H*riment sta

included in the list of bills which have
been introduced. Among these are in
cluded an appropriation for the State

water resources of the state, another
for an industrial accident commission,

Salem- Drastic provisions are con
tained in a bill which will be intro
duced by Senator J. C. Smith, of Jo

session. The bill makes provision
that all corporations, firms or individ
