SALEM, Or., June 18. (Special.)
What Is an apparent absurdity in the
corporation laws of the state is cre
ating considerable difficulty and arous
ing complaints from many companies
from all over the United States.
The law provides that, annual re
ports must be filed with the Secretary
of State on or before July 1. These
reports must be reports of business up
to and including June 30, or one day
before the last day provided for filing
reports. This is a physical impossi
bility to comply with in the case of
nearly every corporation in the state,
with the possible exception of a few
ocated close to the capltol.
Corporation Clerk Babcock today
again Issued a warning to mining com
panies that they must have their. re
ports as to their business filed on or
before July 1, if they wish to take ad
vantage of the 1911 act. This act pro
vides that reports of mining companies
which show that for the calendar year,
next preceding ending December 31,
that the company had no greater out
put than 31000 thefee will be but 310.
Otherwise, if the report is not received,
the corporation will be charged on the
same schedule of fees as other cor
poratlons. As many mining' companies
have excessive, or great capitalization
the difference in fees is large if they
fall to comply with the law.
