Legislature Acts on Many
Important Measures
This Week.
Income Tax BUI Passes House and
. Sales Tax Reported out of Com
mittee; Revenue Big Issue.
Salem, Feb. 28.-Results are now
beginning to show from the weeks
of labor of several of the principal
committees of the 37th legislative
assembly, with the house this week
concurring in all the ways and
means bills, representing the larger
proportion of the work of that body,
which came to a vote. And this
afternoon the first major revenue
producing bill was given the sanc
tion of the house without a dis
senting vote. It is a revision of
the present income tax law, expect
ed to raise between $600,000 and
$750,000 additional revenue. This
afternoon also the taxation and
revenue committee reported out fa
vorably the revamped special ses
sion sales tax bill, estimated, if
passed, to raise $3,000,000 m 1933
and $6,000,000 In 1934.
It is expected that the sales tax
bill will not meet as easy a fate in
the house as did the income tax
measure, but in lieu of any other
definite program of relief from the
property tax burden its passage is
practically assured. This presump
tion may be made In view of the
fact that one objection prevailing
In the special session, that of not
knowing how much revenue would
be needed, Is removed. There are
still those who object to the princi
ple of the tax, and will let It be
known while casting an aye vote in
order to maintain the credit of the
This new sales tax bill is different
from that of the special session
mainly in that it provides a one-half
of one percent tax on gross sales of
manufacturers. It leaves the tax
on gross sales of tangible personal
property and personal services to
consumer at 2 percent With Its
provisions of property-tax offset
and distribution of 50 percent of
the net proceeds to the counties, it
has overcome objections to the for
mer bill on the grounds of discrim
ination against the counties in the
distribution of the revenue. The
bill was worked out of committee In
Its present form by close coopera
tion of the governor, state tax com
mission and the taxation and rev
enue committee.
The revenue program, as worked
out by the committee Is expected to
give the state a nearly-balanced
budget, should the estimates of the
committee prove correct
The highways and highway rev
enue committees also came out with
its program this week which It
claims will meet the needs of the
highway department for the ensu
ing biennlum. Two of its major
bills were presented to the house
this afternoon as a special order of
business. One of these bills sets a
flat $5 license fee on automobiles
and adds another cent on the gaso
line tax, while the other is the truck
and bus rcgulartory measure.
This committee's program was
developed by numerous public hear
ings and heated contentions of the
different factions affected, and the
two bills were finally made a spec
ial order of business after much
jockeying around and an averted
attempt to send them back to com
mittee for more rehashing. The
program of the committee contains
the so-called Dunne plan of taxa
tfon, which was adopted over . the
Alen plan to insert an ad valorem
property tax on each automobile in
stead of an added gasoline tax. A
strong demand still existed in the
house for a property tax, even
though a gasoline tax were needed
to raise sufficient revenue, as the
bills came up for final passage this
afternoon. The Allen plan came
out of committee with a minority
report favoring its passage ahead
of the Dunne plan bill, but was laid
on the table awaiting the arrival
of the latter bill.
Representative Gouley's bill call
ing for the holding of a state con
stitutional convent'on for the pur
pose of voting on repeal of the 18th
amendment, slid through the house
easily this week, and was on the
senate calendar for today. Some
house drj'S laid aside personal prej
udices on the prohibition question
to give the people a chance to ex
press themselves on the matter.
Each ensuing day finds tiring leg.
islators less prone to dissect every
bill into minute particles, and with
freer use of the gag rule and a ban
on explanation of votes, they are
attempting to rid the hopper of Its
still large residue of measures and
get back to their homes. But while
taking more or less snap judgment,
the attitude largely prevails of
passing nothing unless It appears to
be good, and necessary.
It is expected there will be many
night sessions this week to hurry
along the remaining business in an
attempt to adjourn Saturday, but
tonight will be a relaxation period
as the facilities of the lawmakers
are turned over to the "third house"

Mrs. E. F. Campbell
Is Called by Death
Mrs. Eugene F. Campbell passed
away at her home in this city on
Saturday, February 25th, following
a lingering illness, from which she
had been bed-ridden for the past
month. Gathered about her were
all of the members of her family,
and the final summons was an
swered in peace.
Simple but impressive funeral
services were held on Monday af
ternoon at 2:00 o'clock at the Case
Mortuary, and burial was in the
family plot at Masonic cemetery.
Pall bearers were S. E. Notson, J.
G. Thomson, E. G. Noble, R. I.
Thompson, L. E. Blsbee and J. O.
Hager. The chapel and commit
ment services were conducted by
Rev. Glen P. White, Mrs. Camp
bell's pastor, and these services
were largely attended by the friends
and neighbors of the deceased, who
gave expression to their esteem of
Mrs. Campbell in many beautiful
floral offerings.
Had Mrs. Campbell lived just one
more day, she would have reached
the age of 79 years. For the past
54 years she had been a resident of
this community, having migrated
here with her husband, Eugene F.
Cambpell and members of the fam
ily In the year 1879, and settled on
a farm on Balm Fork some seven
or eight miles southeast of Hepp
ner. After many years of rsst-
dence there, the family moved to
Heppner in 1894 and this city has
been their place of abode since.
Olive Jane Williamson was bora
February 26, 1854, at Greenwood,
New York, and was married to

dover, New York, March 27, 1876.

born: Louis C. Campbell of Pen
dleton, Leala Anderson of Port
land, Lulu McCarty of Heppner,

and was ever active In Its welfare,
being greatly loved because Of her
many good works. She was also a
charter member of Maple Circle,
Neighbors of Woodcraft of Hepp
ner, and the first guardian neigh
bor of the lodge. In the community
Mrs. Campbell will always be re
membered as a kindly, considerate
and dependable neighboiy though
quiet and unassuming. Through
more than two years of almost un
bearable physical suffering, she was
always patient For months she
had to bear up under the excru
tiatlng pain of arthritis, and when
this had been somewhat lightened,
It developed that she was the vic
tim of Internal cancer; yet there
was never an expression of discon
tent on her part and she was able
to bear It all with the fortitude of
a Christian, and the end to all mo:
tal pain and suffering came In
Mrs. J. O. Turner departed on
Tuesday afternoon for Salem to be
