Salem. There appears to be a
serious possibility of a stalemate
over the state capitol issue. Gov
ernor Martin in his message to the
legislature declared himself as un
alterably opposed to the erection of
a new state house on th old site.
Close friends of the governor have
intimated that he might go so far
as to veto the capitol construction
bill if it provided or the use of the
old site without any additions. On
the other hand the State Grange,
through its legislative lobby and its
spokesmen on the floor of the House
and Senate, have served notice that
they were prepared to throw a mon
key wrench into the machinery if
the session voted for more ground
on which to build the new capitol.
In either event there would be no
' pew capitol as a result of the spec
ial session, or at least not for some
time. While Grange representatives
hint at a referendum to carry the
capitol site issue to the people, any
such program could easily be de
feated merely by attaching the
emergency clause to the capitol con
struction bill. There would, how
ever, remain recourse to the courts
in an injunction proceeding to test
the validity of the appropriation or
any other financial scheme the ses
sion might adopt, a proceeding
which would delay the capitol pro
gram if not actually defeat it.
Four capitol bills are now before
the senate and house committees
dealing with this subject Two of
these one by Senator Burke and
the other by the joint committee
provide for reconstruction on the
old site; a second committee bill
provides for construction on an en
larged site including Willamette
university campus; the third com
mittee bill provides for construction
of the new state house on the Can
dalaria Heights site, south of Sa
lem. Sentiment among the legislators
appears to favor the old site, with
the expansionists divided as be
tween the campus and Candalaria.
State Treasurer Holman has pub
licly declared himself as emphatic
ally opposed to any more interest
bearing debts. The people of Ore
gon, he points out, are now paying
$10,000,000 a year on the combined
public debt of the state, counties,
school districts and other subdivis
ions. The State Planning Board has
notified Governor Martin that it
intends to make a careful study of
the present properties and needs of
state institutions for future physi
cal improvements, "so that future
construction may be thoughtfully
programmed in advance and carried
out in orderly sequence as funds
Harry Corbett, president of the
state senate, and Clint Haight, rep
resentative from Grant county, have
at least one interest in common.
Neither use tailor made cigarettes.
Both roll their own and use the
same brand of "makins," a brand
said to be almost universally used
by cowboys and men of the prairie
country generally. One day this
week a messenger from the senate
made his way to the desk of Rep
resentative Haight with an import
ant looking package. Opened it
was found to contain a sack of
Haight's favorite cigarette tobacco
and a package of papers with the
compliments of the senate presi
Smoke rolling up the elevator
shaft from the basement of the su
preme court building during the
noon hour created quite a commo
tion among officials and employees
who happened to be on the job at
that time of day. The blaze, start
ing from an overheated motor, was
quickly extinguished with but little
loss or damage.
Miss Harriet C. Long, state li
brarian, does not want the supreme
court building for a library, as has
been suggested. The building, she
points out, is not suited to library
purposes and any attempt to re
model it would only be perpetuat
State Treasurer Holman has sug
gested the creation of a revolving
fund of the various cash surpluses
which his department has on hand
in order to facilitate the use of this
cash for any legitimate state func
tion. At the present time the state's
cash surplus in the numerous funds
handled by the treasury department
aggregates nearly $10,000,000, most
of which is lying idle in banks with
out earning any interest.
Petitions for three initiative
measures will soon be in circulation
about the state. These include the
proposed constitutional amendment
requiring annual elections, spon
sored by W. P. Wagnon, of Port
land, and the state grange power
.bill and state bank bill, both spon
sored by the State Grange and the
Federation of Labor. Ballot titles
for all three have just been com
pleted by Attorney General Van

Want Legislation Held
Down to Capitol Issue
Salem," Oct 31. (Special) Deter
mined to support Governor Martin
in his desire to have the special
legislative session consider nothing
but emergency legislation relative
to the new capitol building, the
Oregon Producers and Shippers as
sociation will not cause any legisla
tion to be introduced at this session.
This announcement was made
here today by W. H. Perkins, man
ager of the association, following
conferences with numerous up
state legislators. Perkins said that
in a recent trip over the state prior
to the session, he found sentiment
overwhelmingly against the con
sideration of any legislation other
than that concerned with the cap
itol building construction.
"While our association and many
other Btate-wide agricultural organ
izations affiliated with us feel there
is urgent need for legislation to
bring about compulsory arbitration
of labor disputes, we are willing to
defer to the wishes of Governor
Martin and postpone consideration
of such measures until the next reg-a
ular session," he said. "The people
want the legislators to complete the
one job for which they were called
and go home. I firmly believe a
majority of the legislators are de
termined to follow out such a pro
gram." There is strong Indication that
many of the bills being introduced
will be indefinitely postponed in
committees to whioh they are re
ferred and that the calendar in
both branches will be cleared for
extended and careful consideration
ef the capitol building program.
Fewer Auto Deaths
Recorded This Year
Oregon's auto fatality record was
neither aided nor impaired by the
results of September motor vehicle
travel on the highways, as the same
number of persons, 24, were killed
during the month in both 1934 and
1935, reports Earl Snell, secretary
"However, the fatality record for
the year of 1935 is 17.7 per cent bet-
ter than during the preceding year,"
adds the secretary. "Forty Uvea
have been saved this year through
the cooperation of users of the high
ways, enforcement officers, organi
zations and movements to promote
safety, and continued publicity to
the need for greater care and cau
tion on the roads and streets of the
state. In the first nine months of
1935, 185 persons lost their lives as
a result of traffic difficulties and in
the same period during 1934, 225
persons were killed."
Motor, vehicle accidents in 1935
have numbered 15,890, with Septem
ber contributing 1,900 to the total.
In 1934, out of the total of 15,874
accidents for the nine-months per
iod, 1,847 occurred in September.
Injuries resulted to 458 persons this
September, and to 496 In the same
month last year.
