To Stabilize County Clerk Fees
Salem, Jan. 24. Donald J. Ryan,
chairman of the county clerks' leg
islative committee, has been in Sa
lem for several days In the interests
of legislation regarding county
clerks' and recorders' fees. Both
the bills introduced this week by
the Clackamas county representa
tives are sponsored by the county
clerks' legislative committee. The
measures are state-wide In applica
tion. In explaining the bill introduced
by Representative H. H. Chindgren,
which proposes to establish a mini
mum recorder's fee of $1.00 for five
folios or less, Mr. Ryan explained
that the burden would be placed up
on those receiving the service. Rev
enue from the recorder's office
amounts to approximately $10,000
per year in Clackamas county, Mr.
Ryan states, and it is estimated that
the new bill would produce addi
tional revenue of between $2500 and
$3000 for the county.
The second bill, introduced by
Senator Linn E. Jones is Intended
to stabilize fees for services of
county clerks, in counties having
a population of 100,000 or less, Mr.
Ryan states. It will produce a ma
terial increase In the revenue from
county clerks' fees, amounting to
about $1200 per year, in Clackamas
county, is Mr. Ryan's opinion.
Will Amend Election Laws
Twelve bills, intended to amend
the present election laws, will sim
plify and harmonize state and coun
ty election laws if passed, declared
Representative Charles W. Robl
son of Astoria who introduced the
blils. "These amendments were
recommended by the legislative
committee of the county clerks as
sociation at its meeting In Portland
"At the present time there Is an
eight-day discrepancy between time
specified for the preparation of bal
lots and the time in which an ab
sent voter's ballot may be obtained.
One of the proposed amendments
states that county clerks shall pre
pare the ballots not more than 40
or less than 35 days before election.
This raises the time limit from the
present law which gives not more
than 22 or less than 19 days. If the
amendment passes, harmony with
the absent voter's law will be ob
tained, since it now states that an
absent voter's ballot may be ob
tained not more than 30 days nor
less than six days before the elec
tions," he said.
Candidates for state offices are re
quired to file certificates of nomina
tion 45 days instead of 40, under the
provisions of house bill No. 206 in
troduced, thereby harmonizing with
the absent voter's law. The Secre
tary of State and cities of 200 or
more population are required to
send arranged ballots to county
clerks, not more than 45 days nor
less than 40 days in the provisions
of house bill No. 208, Representa
tive Robison stated.
Discontinuance of the use of small
ballot boxes for state and district
ballots Is asked in house bill No.

Big Drive Nets 3000
Rabbits Near Alpine
It was a bad day for the rabbits
down Alpine way Sunday. Some 75
residents of that vicinity and peo
ple from neighboring points, includ
ing several carloads from Heppner,
gathered at the old Kilkenny place
and staged one of the most success
ful drives recorded In several years.
The drive started at 11 o'clock
from the Mike Sepanek farm,
rounding up a large portion of the
rabbits in the canyon bottom for
a distance of some four and a half
miles, past the Kilkenny house to a
point where a pen had been con
structed to receive them. The drive
netted In the neighborhood of 3000
furry denizens of the sage land.
The Alpine Farm Bureau, spon
sors of the drive, were hosts to the
visitors, providing a bounteous lun
cheon at the end of the drive, which
was devoured in large quantities by
men, women and children who were
made ravenously hungry by the
long tremp through the snow and
the execution ceremonies.
B. G. Sigsbee, manager of the
Star theater, was in the thick of the
drive grinding away at his movie
camera, and is in hopes of having
some good pictures to throw on the

Basket Ball Saturday,
Arlington vs. Heppner
The conference game of basket

gym on Saturday evening, at 7:30,
and the home team hope to carry
off the laurels, though they are
somewhat crippled because of the
loss of one or two of the best play
ers. Because of sickness of so many
of the members of the Heppner
team, as well as the Inclemency of
the weather, this game was post
poned from an earlier date. John
Farley, who is now recovered quite
well from a severe attack of influ
enza, hopes to be in shape to take
his place on the team in Satuday's
game, but may not be able to do so.
The lineup will be strong, however,
and a good game is expected.
