Interest Rate and Single Tax
DANGER TO STATE SEEN
Proposed Law Held to Fall to Pro
Tide Way to Compel loaning
of Money In Oregon.
Bankers of Oregron are beginning to
take an Interest In some of the Ques
tions to be voted upon at the Novem
ber election, whether or not it can be
said ihat they are evincing interest
In "politics." But as a matter of fact
good politics Is good business, and be
cause of the effect upon all commerce
nd industry every business ' man
should be enough interested in pon
tics to Bee to it that affairs be kept
on a sound basis, and that is the view
that leadingr financiers take at the
present time. Of specia"l Interest to
the banker is the constitutional
amendment fixing .legal rate of inter
est in Oreson. The ballot title is mis
leading, because it fails to make plain
what is meant by the amendment. The
citizen recently settled here from
fome other state may not be previous
ly advised of the provisions of the
law and when, in the voting booth,
he happens upon the line of his bal
lot, is very likely to vote for the
amendment on the theory that the
Ftates with which he is most familiar
have a legal rate of interest fixed by
Compulsory Lou Jfot Provided.
The measure is advanced as a means
ef reducing the interest rate on money
loaned in Oregon to 5 per cent. It
does not provide any way to compel
persons with money to loan to accept
that rate in Oregon when they can
find a strong demand for it in other
states at 8 per cent, or possibly higher
rates. The sponsors for the bill either
did not consider the fact that re
newals of existing loans would prob
ably not be made at lower rates when
they fall due, inasmuch as the lender
could divert the money elsewhere to
his own advantage. Where is the
money coming from to supply the
ager demand of the Oregon bor
rower? The bankers are giving this measure
erne attention, and even those most
disposed to eschew "mixing in poli
tics," are concerned with the danger
that lurks in the amendment for the
very reason that it has not received
much serious attention from business
men up to the present time.
Single Tax Cauaea Concern.
Another measure to which the
thought of business men is directed
and in which the owners of homes are
especially concerned is the single tax.
. It has been up before in various
forms, but this time is brought to the
voters as an absolute single tax
It is receiving the attention of or
ganizations that will acquaint the vot
ers with the danger that lurks in a
radical change of the sort proposed
in the basis for all taxation. It will
hiive among its advocates those who
do not own realty and never expect
to, but the far-reaching effect of
adopting the law might reach in a
disturbing way even to those who
own no lands. The bankers are not
taking any united action in reference
to this, but as progressive business
mer. they are studying the various
amendments to be voted on at the
eiection November 2, and will be in
fluential in helping many citizens to
understand better the effect of the
proposals if enacted into law.

The first meeting of the American
Institute of Banking for the new year
was held at the Multnomah hotel, with
the largest attendance in the history
of the local chapter, last Tuesday eve
ring. The new president, J. King
Kyron, of the Ladd & Tilton bank, in
his inaugural address paid especial
attention to the importance of all
members attending classes, which are
to begin next week. Christian Peter
on, vice-president and chairman of
the educational committee, gave de
tails of classes, which are to teach
elementary banking, standard bank
ing, commercial and banking law.
Ernest Stewart, editor of the Recap,
the house organ of the Portland chap
ter, outlined the many new features
to be given this year. Tom West,
vice-president of the Wasco County
tank at The Dalles, formerly assist
ant cashier of the Ladd & Tilton bank
and now a member of. the national
executive committee of the institute,
made an enthusiastic address. Ad
dresses were made by Koy Dobis and

MOTHER LOVE is again the
basis for an emotional drama
of intAnsjK anneal t ti rl prinninir
force in "Madame X," the famous
French masterpiece whi&h in its
screen adaptation is showing this
week at the Majestic theater.
Pauline Frederick has the stellar
role of Alexandre Bisson's drama.
She has thrown herself unreservedly
into the part, creating "Madame X,
wonderful, beautiful, haggard, ter
rible and tragic by turns. Her make
up is perhaps a bit heavier than she
needs for her facial expressions and
each attitude she strikes is so elo
quent that artificial aids are to a
great 'extent unnecessary. Critics
who have watched Miss Frederick's
career, much of which has been built
on roles conspicuous for their emo
tional qualities, say without hesitation-
that- in this production she has
reached new heights.

This is the first loan placed in this
country by Norway since the United
States entered the war, and it is pre
dicted that the high credit of Norway
and the attractive rate will give the
issue a ready sale. It is estimated
that the entire national debt of Nor
way is about one-eleventh of the
wealth of that country, and while
other countries were expending their
wealth in war undertakings the funds
of Norway have been used largely in
making internal improvements.
With a purchase of an additional
lot of bonds of the City of Astoria,
and warrants of the Sacramento and
San Joaquin Drainage district, Free-
an Smith & Camp company, bona
dealers of Portland and San Fran
cisco, feel that they are offering local
investors securities that will greatly
enhance in value within the next year
or upon a return to normal times.
The warrants are being sold to net
investors in excess of 8 per cent, and
the bonds of the City of Astoria are
being sold to net investors at as much
as 6.82 per cent and with no Income
tax to pay on either of these issues
both make a most attractive invest
ment. The bonds of the City of Astoria
are in three different series, the first
series maturing from one to five
years, the second series maturing
from one to ten years and the third
series' maturing from one to 20 years.
The Issue is 6 per cent bonds, selling
at a price of 99 for any maturities.
They are In $500 and $1000 denomina
tions. Astoria is the third largest
city ,jn the state and second in com
mercial Importance. The salmon in
dustry has its center in Astoria and
the citiy occupies a prominent posi
tion in the lumber industry. Bank
deposits alone aggregate $8,000,000.
The warrants of the Sacramento
and San Joaquin Drainage district
were issued to finance the work as it
progresses. They are signed by the
state treasurer of California and call
able by him about July. 1921. The
California board of control has pur
chased $300,000. These warrants bear
7 per cent and are sold at a price to
yield fnvestors more "than 8 per cent.

Vernon Bailey, Federal Biologist,
Makes Report on Damage
Done In This State.
An expert from the United States
department of biology at Washington,
D. C. is expected to be sent to Ore
gon to direct a campaign for the ex
termination of gray diggers, pocket
gophers and other destructive ro
dents, it was announced yesterday, as
the result of an investigation of these
rodentn which has been made in Ore
gon by Vernon Bailey, biologist of the
U. S. department of biology.
Mr. Bailey announced that he had
found these rodents oarticularly nu
merous and .destructive in the Wil
lamette valley and there was great
need for a campaign to curb their ac
tivities. He is forwarding a report
on the situation to his headquarters
at Washington, D. C. .
Mr. Bailey has been accompanied on
his investigation trip here by his
wife, Mrs. Florence Merriam Bailey,
author of a number of books on birds,
including "Handbook of Western
Birds," which is used as a textbook
in numerous colleges. Mrs. Bailey has
been studying birds in the regions
covered. The two have made investi
gations in the Malheur lake region
and the Willamette valley and visited
Three Arch rocks near Tillamook,
which was set aside in 1908 as a bird
reservation by President KooseveU.
The two lectured at the central li

course of the Oregon Audubon so
