l'ortland Investigator Sees Few
Friends of Allen Land Bill.
HOOD RIVER, Or, Jan. 24. (Spe
cial.) R. Fukuda. of Portland, secre
tary of the Japanese Association of
Oregon, was here today to ascertain
sentiment of business men and ranch
ers on the proposed anti-alien land
bill, introduced in the Oregon Legisla
ture by Senator George R. Wilbur.
Following his canvass of the city, the
visitor declared that he was at a loss
to know the reasons for the bill. '
""I find, apparently." says Mr.
Fukuda. "that the Japanese of Hood
River and the white population are on
the best of terms. Japanese ranchers
and business men seem to be respected.
The actual Japanese population, instead
of increasing, has materially decreased
in the piist few years. It is noticeable
that Japanese land owners are selling
their holdings instead of purchasing

(Special.) Fire insurance men from
all parts of the state have been Invited
to the Capitol next Tuesday when the
joint House and Senate committees on
insurance will consider the fire insur
ance section of the proposed new code.
Meanwhile Chairmen Orton and Mackey
will make a thorough investigation of
the fire insurance question to determine
why, if there is any opposition to state
regulation of rates.
Senator Orton said today that he
learned that insurance companies last
year Increased their rates, and he
wanted to find out if tnese so-called in
dependent companies increased their
rates at the same time. He has re
liable information that an increase was
made. He also wants to know the
financial soundness of these companies. I by the Governor.

The measure in brief proposes to
divide the state government into 11
departments, as follows:
Board of control, treasury, labor,
publlo service, industrial accident com

agriculture, education, engineering and
The board of control would be re

Honest Advertisers Need Not Fear,
the bill submitted by the Portland Ad Club to the Legislature for enactment prohibit
ing false advertising. This bill is essentially the same as the famous Printers' Ink model
statute prepared by H. D. Nims, of the New York bar and already enacted as a law in
thirteen states; as follows: Colorado, Idaho. Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Rhode Island,
Louisiana, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Washington and West Virginia.
Here is the bill :
Prohibiting untrue, deceptive and misleading assertions, representations or statements of fact
in advertisements within the state of Oregon and providing a penalty for the violation thereof,
and to repeal Section 2230 of Lord's Oregon Laws and all acts and parts of acts in conflict
Be it enacted by the people of the state of Oregon:
Section 1. It shall be unlawful for any person, firm, corporation or association, with in
tent to sell or dispose of merchandise, securities, service, or anything offered by such person,
firm, corporation or association, directly or indirectly, to the public for sale or distribution,
or with intent to increase consumption thereof, or to induce the public in any manner to
enter into any obligation relating thereto, or to acquire title thereto, or an interest therein, to
make, publish, disseminate, circulate, or place before the public, or cause, directly or indi
rectly, to be made, published, disseminated, circulated or placed before the public within the
state of Oregon, in a newspaper or other publication, or in the form of a book, notice, hand
bill, sign, poster, bill, circular, pamphlet, tag, label or letter, or in any other way or manner
whatsoever, an advertisement of any sort regarding merchandise, securities, service, or any
thing so offered to the public, which advertisement contains any assertion, representation
or statement of fact which is untrue, deceptive or misleading.
Section 2. Any person, firm, corporation or association violating any of the provisions
hereof shall upon conviction thereof be punished by a fine of not more than One Hundred
Dollars ($100.00) or by imprisonment in the County Jail not exceeding Thirty (30) days.
Section 3. That Section 2230 or Lord's Oregon Laws and all acts and parts of acts in
conflict with any of the provisions hereof be and the same are hereby repealed.
Certain parties, who have as yet seen fit to conceal their identity, have caused to be introduced into
the Legislature a rival bill, called the California bill, prohibiting fraudulent advertising, which they say
is "opposed to the one offered by the Ad Club." The essential difference between the California bill
and the Ad Club bill is this: The California law renders it necessary to prove an express guilty intent
to' defraud the public on the part of the advertisers before a conviction is possible, i. e., it must be
proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the' advertiser, at the time the ad was written, knew in his
own mind, or should have known, the ad to be false. On the other hand, the Ad Club measure does
not require express proof of a guilty knowledge on the part of the advertiser.
The Ad Club believes that the advertiser knows better than anyone else whether his advertisement
is true and that the public interests 'require that every merchant be held accountable for misleading
statements printed over his signature. If advertisers once understood this to be the measure of their re
sponsibility the practice now prevalent in many stores of turning the preparation of "copy" over to an
ad writer' with never a thought or a care as to the contents of the ad so long as it brought the busi
ness would cease and the multitudes of frauds perpetrated annually and originating in the advertising
columns of our newspapers would be nipped in the bud. Let the stable door be locked before the horse
The Ad Club does not believe in criminal prosecutions except to protect the public against the ad
vertiser who, as a regular proposition, attempts to sell his wares through misrepresentation. Honest
merchants have nothing to fear through law enforcement, but the public should be protected from the
merchant who is even indirectly dishonest.
To better illustrate the difference between the two bills: In a recent prosecution against a local ad
vertiser for fraudulent advertising the merchant defended by saying that the ad in question was written
by a man hired for that purpose and that he, the merchant, had had no actual knowledge of the contents
of the ad, therefore he claimed not to be responsible for statements made in the advertisement. Now,
if the California bill were the law in Oregon, this particular advertiser could get away with that kind
of a defense, while if the Ad Club measure were enacted he would be responsible for every statement
published in the ad.
We leave it to a fair-minded public to say which law Is the better and cordially invite public dis
cussion of the subject.
Yours for more truth in advertising,
THE PORTLAND AD CLUB.
S. a BRATTON, President.
Chairman Mackey stated that over-
insurance might have - had something
to do with increased rates, and as Fire
Marshal Stevens will be at the hearing.
Information will be furnished upon this
Commissioner Wells stated that the
whole fight centered on state super
vision. The city of Portland recently
complained to him about increased
rates. Attorney-General Brown advised
him that he has no authority to make
an Inquiry, but for the public good in
surance companies and rating bureaus
should furnish this information. In
other words, today there is no one to
whom to appeal, and the public is at
the mercy of the insurance companies,
said Mr. Wells.
