SAI.E.M, Or., Dec. 16. The legis
lature of Oregon will convene Janu
ary 13th 1919, for a session to last
not more than forty days. The gov
ernor Is prevlleged to call a special
session of not to exceed twenty days,
at any time within the biennial per
iod, but this has seldom been done
in the history of the state.
Little legislation of Importance has
been forecast for the coming session
and nothing of a partizan nature can
well raise an issue. Seventy nine re
publicans nine democrats and two In
dependents will make up the legisla
ture. Prohibition will not be an Is
sue, in any form, It Is predicted.
Witn.Oregon definitely in the bone
dry column, the ratification of tho
federal prohibition amendment Is ex
pected to bo made without a battle
of any consequence.
A proposition to simplify the state
government by doing away with a
large number of offices and a re
grouping of the duties of others, Is
to be reported upon to the legislature
by a committee appointed two years
ago, and interest may center In the
consideration of this plan, which,
however, is not conceded to have
much chance of adoption. Tho radical
nature of the changes suggested and
the large number of office holders
affected will work against Its chances
of success, nccordlng to political pro

on his own responsibility, giving his
bond to the court to finish it satisfac

ment made today by tho contractor.
Mr. Garrett declared that the pol
icy of building improved roads here
late in the year Is a very poor one,
and that tho county should plan to
start such work early enough to pre
vent experiences of this kind in the
future. Tho baso of the road Is in
good shape, It Is declared, but con
siderable expense must bo put on the
top before It Is again In good condi
tion. The road was oponed earlier
than It should havo been lu ordor
that tlio public would not be obliged
to go out of tho regular way during
tho entire winter.
