EMERGENCY TAX MEASURE
LEAVES ABOUT SAME AP
Salem, Jan. 28 The emergency tax
bill authorizes the governor, 8 sere
tary of state and treasurer to act
as a board of equalization, with
power to apportion the state tax
among the counties according to
what they find to be the true valua
tion. The effect of the measure will
be to make practically no change In
the proportion of state tax each
county will pay.
Salem Govenor Chamberlain sent
to the legislature Tuesday morning a
apeclal message advising immediate
enactment of an emergency tax law
4o take the place of the act declared
unconstitutional. In speaking of the
matter the governor said that in his
opinion it would be necessary for
the legislature to frame and pass a
bill either making a levy or author-'
Izing the state board of apportion
nent to make a levy for the year
It Is evident from thlB that Mult
tomah, Columbia, Tillamook, Doug
las, Jackson, Josephine, Clackamas,
Coos and Wallowa must pay the
rreatly Increased tax which will be
apportioned under the uniform levy
based upon assessed valuations. The
turden will fall upon the counties as
i whole, for the state tax is a debt
from the county to the state. i
With 11 dissenting votes, members
of the Clackamas county delegation
In the house succeeded Tuesday In
aavlng passed their bill providing
for an eight-hour workday In all
manufacturing, mechanical, mercan
tile and other establishments operat
ing continuously 24 hours.
