THE FIRST BIENNIAL REPORT
The Observer received on
Monday the First Biennial Re
port ef the Hon. O PHoff.com-
missioner of the Bureau of
Labor statistics and Inspector of
Factories and Workshop. This
new department was created ;by
the Oregau legislature by an
aot approved Feb 24, 1903, and
consists of the Governor, Sec
retary of State and Treasurer,
twith power to select a, commiss
ioner. The Bureau organized
1 on June 1, 1903 and selected
: th Hon 0 P Hoflf commission
. er, who assumed the duties
thereof as ptrjeribed by said
act on June 3 of that year, j
The report contains 164 pages
showing the work done and
statistics gathered from June 1,
1933 to January 1, 1904, and
contains much valuable infor
mation to citizen of Oregon.
One item therein, though a dry
statistical one will receive some
attention from most tax payers
which is that the salary of the
commissioner is $1800 per year
with an allowance in addition
thereto of $800 per year for ex
penses, office fixture' and etc.
Considering the difficulties of
putting in operation a new
bureau; one that had to work
along entirely i new lines, in
Oregon, to secure information
frcm a people unaccustomed to
tell public t'fBcials much about
their private affairs, it is sur
prising the amount of informa
tion the commissioner has col
lected about the condition of
labor, the number engaged in
each of the 168 vocations tabu
lated, the wages paid or received
the hours worked per day and
age and sex of the laborers.
Don't be satisfied to Met well
