(Speil.il to Klamath Falls Herald)
SALKM, Jan 25 No session of a
legislature since Hie State of Oregon
has been admitted to Hie Union has
devoted so much time ti, or made
such great headway with highway
legislation as Hie present one It
lias overshadowed everything else,
and will lontlntie to do su for the
balance of the session.
This Is due to two reasens: First,
the demand of tne people through
out the state for a decided change in
the road conditions, which aro the
worst on the Pacific Coast; second,
to meet the demand for employment
for tho great army of men that will
be thrown upon the labor market
by i canon of tho end of the war.
Another factor that has played a
prominent part in the discussion that
has been held on highway work
was the usual rmg.ihoo of the "pav
ing trust," and the "cement trust "
Hoth of these hac been held before
tho eyes of tho legislators as lying
in wait to plungo upon the public
funds and "eat 'em alive." In order
to prevent any such a catastrophe
Attorney Genera! llrown has gotten
busy, and has prepared for the con
sideration of the legislature a bill
that will curb their rap.icioubticss.
Ho lias also drafted a measure fur a
bond issue of $10,000,000. In addi
tion to these measures, sK others
have been prepared and Introduced
by Senators Thomas, L.ichuioud and
Dlmmick, all of them aimed to lib
orate the state highway commission
from thu grip of tho alleged bitumi
nous and cement octupus, and there
Is a certainty that some very strin
gent legislation will be passed along
Tito big tiling, however, before the
legislature will ho the $10,000,000
bond issue and the proposed amend
ment tn Hie state constitution. This
latter Is being agitated by Senator
llaldwln from Klamath Count), who
wunts tho 2 por tent restriction
raised to 10 por cent. Ho is meeting
with encouragement, and It is quite
cortaiu that such an amendment will
ho submitted, inasmuch as the people
will finally have a vote on w bother
the bonds will he issued or not..
Senator Baldwin is nil enthusiastic
good roads man, and is malting,
Klamath County known among his
fellow members as It has not been
known before lor muiio jeafs
The $10,000,000 bond Issue will
pass for a ceitalnty, and a special
flection will undoubtedly ho called
lo glvo the people a chance to voto
on it at an earl date. It Is proposed
t i uso threo-fouitlts of this money to
bul'il two main tiunU loads -one
from not Hi to south, the other fiom
east to vvw est.
The senate highway coinmltteo has
been devoting a great deal of time to
(HgCL'tlug tho many propositions that
huvo como before it, offoring sugges
tions for tho raising ot revenue, and
ono point that seems to meet with
considerable support is tho levying
a tax of 1 cent a gallon on gasoline,
tho money to be used for the con
struction of good loads; tlm other
increasing tho motor vohlclo tax.
That motor driven machines of all
kind will hnvo to carrj a heav bur
den of tho road construction oxpoiibo
Is certain, hut thoso representing the
owners aro willing to shoulder anv
reasonable, tax that may bo Imposed,
' provided It Ik spent In building per
Tin; senate has passed 25 hills 80
far this session, and tin; house 11
Tin' legislature has adjourned over
llii' week end.
As the dispatch Indicates, Senator
Baldwin hits had his coat off and Is
working tooth and nail for the wel
fare of this county, In response to
the request of the Good Rnads Asso
ciation, and that his efforts will he
appreciated will he proven when lie
returns to Klamath Falls, where a
warm welcome awaita hltn. No coun
ty in the state has taken the active
part In thu Reed roads movement
manifested hero to date, and Klam
ath Falls is Rolng to stay in the
front. We arc RolnR to get a good
big slice of that $10,000,000 bond
