Federal Attorney Will Help Get Evi dence Against New York World. New York, Feb. 2. United States District Attorney Henry L. Stimson made public tonight a letter, in reply to one written by District Attorney Je rome on the subjoct of beginning an action for criminal libel in the state courts against the publishers of the New York World because of published charges regarding the Tanama canal purchases. Mr. Stimson tells Mr. Jerome to go ahead. Mr. Jerome had asked if action in the state courts on behalf of Douglas Robinson, the president's brother-in-law, would be an unwise interference with the action begun under Federal jurisdiction. Mr. Stimson answers this question negatively, but dot-snot state that the Federal inquiries or prosecutions will cease, if Mr. Jerome begins an action. It is apparent that while the Federal authorities concede to Mr. Jerome the right to appear as the protector of Douglas Robinson's gvod name, they reserve to themselves the privilege of acting in defense of the reputation of "a gentleman who occupied the posi f;..., ,.f h..,l of trie War denartment" in any Federal jurisdiction wnere me case applies. The reference to the "gentleman who occupied the position of head of the War department1' probably refers tn Plihii Root, who was the secretary of war under whom the negotiations were completed. NOT PREPARED YET. Governor-General Smith Gives Fur- ther Advice to Filipinos. Manila, Feb. 2. The Philippine as sembly opened today with simple cere monies, President Osmena presiding. The first business to come before the body was the annual message to the assembly of Governor-General James F. Smith, which read, m part, as lol- lows : "My last word to the Filip nos is that until the great majority and not a small minority of the citizens are pro pared to make intelligent use of the franchise; until democratic usages ana customs have permeated trtrougnout the population, and become a part of the daily life of the people; until the power of unconscionable agitators and demagogues is broken; until education has created a iut public sympathy that specious arguments and false doc trines cannot destroy; until a citizen has not only the power to judge but also the courage to act for himself, the best future of the islands lies with the land which has given the Filipinos freedom of speech; liberty of the press; freedom of worship; the right of the accused to meet witnesses against him face to face; the exercise of the franchise: free schools; auto nomy in municipal and provisional affairs; the right to participate in making laws through the assembly, and many other rights, liberties and privileges not enjoyed by peoples which have had independ nee and na tional existence for hur.dreds of years. Governor Smith deplored the grow ing gulf between the Americans and the Filipinos in the Philippines, and strongly urged that they draw closer together and act in unity for the best interests of both. His mes-age sharp ly criticises the municipal government of Manila and the municipal police force, the personnel of which, he said, was not equal to that of the house ser vants of the city. The provincial government, Governor Smith pronounced to be entirely satis factory. The annual report on the reveiues of the islands shows a decline of about a million pesos (about $500,000) for 1908 under the figures of 1907. Treat All Aliens Alik?. Sacamento, Feb. 2. Governor Gil lett made public tonight the text of a letter received today from President Roosevelt with regard to anti-Japanese legislation now pending in the Califor nia legislature. President Roosevelt begins by quot ing a letter from the secretary of state to Governor Gillett, in which Mr. Root said that he Baw no objection to the passage of a law which treated all aliens alike in acquiring ar.d transfer ring real property, but "To avoid con flict with the constitution of the Unit ed States, such stat-ite should contain an expressed provision excepting from its operation any rights secured by treaty between the United Statis and foreign nations."

Salarvy log rollers in both houses discarding party lines today succeed in overriding vetoes of Governor Chamberlain on bills to in crease the pay of the sheriff of Harney county and school superintendent of Polk and to grant fee to the sheriffs of Malheur and Lake. The Harney veto must' yet be voted down in the house before becoming a law and the two other vetoes must b o disposed of in the senate. Today's action of the two bodies in dicates quite conclusively that the two bodies will reciprocate in this matter. The Harney veto was overriden in the senate by 23 members supporting the bill and the two other Vetoes in the house were overcome by a vote of 37 to IS in the case of tho Folk county school superintendent and 62 to 4 in the case of tho sheriff's fees in Mal heur and I-ako. Appalled by the enormous call for appropriations, the ways and menus committee are whetting their knives for the pninii'g. Senate appropriHtion bills aggregate $1,200,000 and house bills $ I, $00, 000, while the secretary of state's recommended budget amoun's to $3,400,000. The total of all cash calls is $5,500,000, making allowance for duplications of the house, the sen ate and the secretary of state. Appropriations two years ago were $3,063,805, which exceeded those of the session before by $800,000. A horde of bills creating new jobs, most of them at fat pay, have invaded the legislature no less than 200 new seats at the pie ocunter being provided for. How far the combination against the governor, as signalled today, will extend for enactment of these bills, it is impossible yet to foretell. Monday, February I. Salem, Feb. 1. The anti-statement bill, introduced jointly by Representa tives Bean and Brooke, created some thing of a stir in the house this morn tig when it was reported back by the committee on elections with a favora ble report. Brooke moved the adop tion of the report, which was opposed by Orton ar.d several of the statement republican members and the motion finally prevailed by a vote of 23 to 22, 15 being absent. The bill was made a special order for Wednesday at 2 p. m. The house committee on railroads tomorrow will recommend favorably a bill requiring that all cars on interur ban street railway lines be equipped with toilets. Representative McCue's bill, autho rizing the d fferent counties to levy a tax of not to exceed two mills, when approved at a special election, for the purpose of advertising the state and its resources, met with opposition in the house this afternoon, and was passed by a vote of 34 to 19. The house committee on revision of laws tomorrow will recommend favora bly Representative Buchanan's bill providing for a constitutional conven tion. 1 he bill provides tnai tne ques tion of holding such a convention shall be submitted to the people at the No vember election in 1910. If such a convention shall be order d, a special election is to be held in June, 1911, when 60 delegates, one from each of the representative dis tricts in the state, shall be elected to revise the constitution. The constitu tional convention will meet at Salen. n October, 1911, and the constitution, as revised and amended, shall be sub mitted to the voters at another special election in April, 1912, for their ap proval. W ith only 13 ayes in its favor, Rep resentative Calkins' bill providing that a new school district must have a school population of 15 before it could be established and receive state aid, was defeated in the house this after noon. Saturday, January 30. Salem, Jan. SO. District attorneys all over the state are interested in sen ate bill 117, by Smith, of Umatilla, which prohibits the incumbents of that office from engaging in private prac tice. It is understood that Senator Smith, who is a doctor, introduced the bill at the request of lawyers, who did not like to introduce the bill them selves, tor lear ol incurring tne dis pleasure of district attorneys. The purpose ol benator Albi esDill relat'ng to hours of labor on public work is to make the eight-hour provis ion apply to employes of contractors or sub-contractors on public work. Tie present law, the act of 1907, applies only to persona employed by the state or county, and not to contractors or sub-contractors doing work lor the state or county. Neither the present law nor the Albee bill (S. B. 131) ap plies to state institutions other than the penitentiary, for it has been found impracticable to put an eight-hour law in force in the asyium, or the mule, blind or reform schools. Senator Bailey's bill regulating the hours of employment of females ex tends the provisions of the act of 1903 (amended in 1907) so that it applies to females employed by telegraph, tele- Albany Team Picked.

To rive the governor and secretary of state joint authority with tho stale treasurer in the examination and ap proval of securities accepted by the treasurer irem bauK in wmcn i-m-funds are deposited, is tho purpose of Senator Parriah's senate bill 144. At the present the treasurer is sole judge of the sufficiency of sejrity, but is exempted from liability tor any loss sustained by reason of the failure of any bank in which fund are deposited according to law. Senator M. A. Miller 8 Semite inn 12!t proposes to amend the road law of tson. bv nerniittini? the voters of a road district to votj a special tax levy at a special meeting called by petition. Friday, January 20. Salem, Jan. 29. This promises to be the most extravagant legislature Oregon ever had at Salem, not only on account of appropriations, but also on account of new offices to be created and higher salaries enacted, there are bills for creation of no less thun 200 new jobs, most of them at fat pay political berths, for few of which the state and its subdivision shave any need. War between Governor ( hainberlam and salary logrollers in tho legislature was declared today from the governor's office in a special warning message. The house replied by passing Multno mah's bill ofr an extra circuit judge and overriding his last session vetoes on four agricultural fair senate bills appropriating money lor hastem Ore sron district. Five or the six senate Dina or tne 1907 session, vetoed by the governor and which were passed over his veto in the senate at this session, were passed bv the house thia morning, when they came up as a special order. Four of the bills provide for district agricul tural societies in Eastern Oregon and carry appropriations of from $1500 to $500 per annum each. The fifth meas ure permits the garnishment of the sal aries and wage of state and county officials. The most sweeping anti-trust bill that has been introduced in the legis lature appeared in the senate today. It was introduced by Senator Bingham and is senate bill 161. It not only pro hibit every form and shade of truitt and combination agreement, but re quires corporations to make an annual statement under oath that they hav not made any agreements in restraint of trade or for the maintenance of prices or rate. It prescribes as pen alties not only fines and imprison ments, but forfeiture of corporate ex istence and liability to repay all mon ey received in violation of the anti trust law. Thursday. January 28. Salem, Jan. 23. Senator Bailey's motion for an amendment to the con stitution permitting the legislature to amend a city charter with the consent of a majority of the voter of a city in looked upon by the anti-saloon people as an effort to circumvent the local option law. Should the amendment be adopted any city that has become "dry" be cause it is in a "dry" county, could by vote of its people be made "wet" by an act of the legislature. This would practically set aside the local option, so far as eitiea am concerned. The emergency tax law passed both houses today and provides that within five days the state board shall equalize the county assessments and levy a state tax at a uniform rate. The bill carries an appropriation of $5000 to meet the contingent expenses of the board, which may find it neces sary in the process of ita task to sum mon several of the county assessors to their assistance. Certain Portland banks have renew ed their old fight to restrict to them selves the use of the word "Trust," in the titles of firms and corporations. A bill introduced by Senator Bailey, and now gone to the house, forbid any of the numerous abstract and mortgage and agency companies tho use of "Trust" in their business. Instead they must use "Trustee." A big fight is waging over an at tachment bill which bankers are boost ing in order to save themselves from attachment in case of money stringen cy. The opposite contention is that the bill would so seriously impair at tachment of personal property as prac tically to make it impossible. The senate judiciary committee re ceived a severe scoring from Senator Abraham, of Douglas county, this morning wherwthe committee reported adversely on Abraham's bill making it manslaughter to kill a human being by mistake for a deer.
