for a cement bridge from Court street,

Much Discussion Is Aroused
by LaFollette's Industrial
Commission Bill
The State Taxpayers League in ses
sion today at the Commercial cluh, with
about 60 delegates from all parts of the
state, went on record, in the way of a
resolution, that it was not in favor of
the state officials adding even six per
cent each year to the amount raised for
taxes the preceding year.
Governor Withycombo spoke in favor
of a more elastic system of taxation,
rather than the six per cent limitation.
He said that California and Washing
ton were expending large sums in adver
tising and thnt occasion might arise in
Oregon where it would be advisable to
raise more than six per cent of the for
mer year's levy. Ho thought that tax
ation should be more elastic, especial
ly as the great resources of the state
had scarcely been touched.
Senator La Follette was not in favor
of paving more state money to the in
dustrial accident commission and cited
what had been done in 32 other states.
He thought the commission should he
self sustaining. This subject was dis
cussed by many delegates.
A resolution committee was appoint
ed this morning, of the following: C.
E. Spence, chairman; James Stewart, K.
E. Brodie of Clackamas; George Miller
of Union county; Henry Heed of Mult
nomah county; O. T. Taylor of Clatsop;
Elbert Bede of Lane county.
The session was called to order by
Senator Walter M. Pierce of La Grande,
who addressed the session.
This morning the following resolution
on the 6 per cent tax limitation was
Whereas, the 6 per cent tax limitation
amendment adopted by the people of
Oregon as part of its constitution, is
being interpreted by many tax levying
bodies as a guarantee of the privilege
of Increasing tax levies 6 per cent each
and every year, ami
Whereas, when so applied, it com
pounds annually until at the end of
tea years the increase ot taxation is
about 181 per cent over what it was in
the year 1910, when taxes already were
burdensome, therefore be it
Resolved, that it is the sense of the
State Taxpayers' League, in regular
convention assembled, at Salem, Ore
gon, January 27, 1917, that notice be
served by local and county taxpayers
associations upon all tax levying bod
ies that the application of the 6 per
cent limitation as a guaranteed in
crease of 6 per cent eompoundo dannual-
lv should not be tolerated by public
sentiment and will accumulate ruinous
burdens upon the taxpayers of the
state, ami be it further
Resolved, that we recommend that
the subject of how to readjust period
ically such tax levies as increase at
the compound rate of 6 per cent per
annum be made a special order for dis
cussion and report at the first 1918
meeting of the league, and be it forth
er. , .
Resolved, that a committee be ap
pointed by the president to prepare a
report upon this subject, with recom
mendations for consideration by this
The resolution committee this after
noon reported to indefinitely postpone
the resolution presented providing that
state aid should be withdrawn from the
state industrial accident commission
when tho act is made compulsory. A mo
tion was passed providing that before
the league committed Itself to any res
olution, it must be carried by a two
thirds vote.
