So large was the crowd that the caurtvoom proved too tonsil to ac- commodate it and the convention con- vened in the Paramount theater for the afternoon session. With one or two small exceptions, armony reigned throughout the day. A ripple of excitement splad over the assemblage when the credentials Committee recommended that two delegations from precinct 1 in To- nasket be seated, each member with IaLf a vote. Members of one delegations fought against this arrangement from the floor, demanding that their group be seated with full votes on the grounds the other delegation was elected by a caucus held at an unofficial time and place. N. H. Silver, leading the othcr delegation, answered the criti- cism, claiming his caucus was held ill a legal manner and his delegation was entitled to be seated. Apparently determined that the harmonious tenor of the convention should not be disrupted by heated de- bate the convention backed up he decision of the credentials commit- tee by an overwhelming vote. Members of the two ddegations from preciuct 1 in Okanogan accept- ed the compromise in apparent good spirits. Caucus leaders declared there was no issue in controversy, the two delegations resulting merely from a misunderstanding 0f the time the cau- cus was to be held. Emert Named Chairman The convention was called to order at eleven o'clock in the courtroom, by Frank S. E'.nert, county chairman, following an earlier meeting of the newly formed Okanogan County Wo- men's Republican Club. Emert was named for the position of temporary chairman by Horace E. Smith, state senator, and was unanimously elect- ed. A contest arose for the secretary- ship of the convention. N. H. Silver, who occupied the place when the con- vention opened, was named as were L. R. Gillette and Homer M. Davis. Davis was found to have received 72 votes to 63 for Silver and he assum- ed his place at the table. Charles A. Johnson, local attorney and for many years chairman of the county central committee, deiivered tile keynote addrss, urgingparty sol- idarity in the face of existing condi- tions. , Johnson Praises Hoover President Hoover was lauded by Johnson who declared he has formu- lated a 12 point plan to lead the na- tion into better days and has put several of his points into operation. "We still remember very vividly those black days a few ..months ago whn Germany was almost ready to default her payments and plunge Europe and the entire world into fi nancial chaos," Johnson said, "and in that dark time it was President Hoe- vex who called leaders of both par- I ies together and proposed the more- l torture which was adopted and which [ saved the financial structure of the.i civilized world." I The keynoter painted Hoover as a l great leader 'ho has been vilified and blamed for conditions over which he had no control.

Olympia Man Condemns Unemployment In- surance Bill By JIMMIE K. BROWNE OLYMPIA, April 25--When voters by attaching their signatures to the grange district power bill in 1930 and then going to the polls and adopting it, showed their lack of understand- ing of such legislation designed pri- marily to double, triple and quad- ruple taxes, there is cause to worry over the unemployment insurance bill now being circulated. Today finds the taxpayers virtually bankrupt. Taxes arc not being paid. Ina great many instances they can- not be paid. Yet in the face of this, proposals are being advanced to in- crease taxes tremendously. The voters of the state, in Novem- ber 18 months ago, gave the Grange District Power Bill a majority vote placing it upon the statute books. They did not or could not see that they were forging an instrument, if ever used, can bankrupt city, county, and state. The district power bill is the most dangerous tax increase measure ever submitted to the voters of the state, and ranks on a parity with the unem- ployment insurance measure now be- Ing sponsored by certain persons largely the same'group which hand- led the power bill. The latest proposal to invoke the power measure eOlneS front Mason County. There have been ru.'ntrs that Skagit, Snohomish, Kitsap and Ok- anogan counties were contemplating using it to create municipal corpora- tions in those sections, but no real action has been taken as yet. Unlimited Powers The bill which is Chapter 1 of the Session l,aws of 1!)31, makes it pos- sible to remove all of the present tax- paying light and power properties in the state from the tax rolls. It gives unlimited powers of taxation and per- mits the creation of double debts up- on all property included in the dist- rict, first through general obligation bonds drawing six percent interest, and then creating a local improve- ment district upon the same proper- ty and issuing improvement bonds drawing six per cent on this. In ad- dition two mills can be levied to pay operating' costs, and additional levies can be made to pay interest on util- ity bonds issued against tile district. T'lxes can be pyramided end on end until the whole structure topples over. The bill provides for the creation of a power district commission, em- powered with broad duties to take o- ver plants aml property, control, con- demn, purchase, construct, lease or obtain property anyway. The district can fix rates free of I the supervision of the Department [of Public Works, irrespective wheth- er or not such rates are compensa- tory. The district can borow money, issue utility and general obligation bonds, without a ratifying vote of the property owners or the people. Two mills tax levy can be assessed for the use of the district exclusive of interest or redemption of .g'eneral ob- ligation bonds. This two mills is to make up tle deficits caused hy nlain- tenance ad operation. Obligatiou bonds a general debt against all property, can be issued by the commission, and can be retired by levying another tax upon the proper- ty. Utility bonds can be issued with- out limit and without a vote of the people. I,ocal improvement districts can be created without a vote of the people and assessments h,.vied against all property within such district, more taxes on top of those already decid- ed upon.
