BLUE SKY CHANGES UP
Better Protection for Stock and
Bond Buyers Is Declared
to Be Necessary.
SALEM, Or., Aug. 20. (Special.)
Althougn the next regular session
of the Oregon legislature will not
convene until January, state offi
cials, state departments and super
intendents of the state institutions
already are working out in their
minds various bills which will be
submitted for consideration of the
Important among the legislative
enactments to be requested will (be
several amendments to Che present
blue sky laws of the state. T. B.
Handley, state corporation com
missioner, has indicated that the
blue sky laws now in operation are
inadequate, and that numerous
amendments are necessary if in
vestors in stocks and bonds are to
have the protection to which they
are entitled. This legislation will
be remedial in character, Mr. Hand
ley said, and will be directed par
ticularly at non-resident corpora
tions and stock-selling organize
tions which are increasing rapidly
Dunking Amendments Wanted.
The state banking department
also will have a number of amend
ments for consideration of the leg
islature. Frank Bramwell, state
banking superintendent, in a recent
report, declared that the present
banking laws are lame, and that
"tightening up" "process is necessary
to guarantee protection to depos
tors and Investors. Although re
fusing to divulge the nature of the
proposed legislation, Mr. Bramwell
said he 'had discussed several bills
with members of the state banking
board and that they are agreeable
to a number of drastic changes.
Bills to be offered by the state in
dustrial accident commission, if ap
proved by the legislature, will ex
tend the scope of operations of that
department and make it easier for
the smaller industries of the state
to come under the workmen's com
pensation law. Whether there will
be a downward revision of the
charges of the commission for pro
tection has not yet been determined
by the commissioners. During the
last year, the accident commission
has sought to interest farmers and
other rural industries In the protec
tion offered by the compensation
act, and it is likely that the pro
posed legislation will hold out nu
merous inducements to this class of
The state eugenics board already
has announced that it will have a
bill before the legislature looking
to the passage of a law to replace
the one which recently was declared
unconstitutional by the courts. The
so-called old eugenics law, under
which the board operated for a
number of years, was attacked in
the courts a year ago and was held
to be unconstitutional by Judges
G. G. Bingham and Percy Kelly.
Appeal then was taken to the su
preme court, with the result that
the decision of the lower court was
Revision of the present motor ve
hicle license laws, based on the age
of cars, as well as their weight and
tire width, also probably will re-
ceive the attention of the legisla
ture Motor vehicle owners are not
satisfied with the present license
laws, it was said, and hate de
manded that the age of ears, be
taken into consideration by offi
cials. At the present time no allow

compelled to pay a state . license

Training: School Site Sousht.
The legislature also probably will
be asked to provide an appropriation
with which to purchase a site for
the proposed new state training
school for boys. Money for the erec
tion of this plant was made avail
able by the legislature at the 1921
session, but because of objections to
the tentative site selected by the
board of control, actual construction
work was postponed. Officials said
that approximately 300 acres of land
will be required for this institution.
The plant will cost approximately
$280,000 and will be erected under
the cottage system. Most of the pro
posed new laws to be sought by state
institutions will relate to the han
dling of their charges.

Indians, were held today from the
Starr undertaking chapel," with Rev.
W. P. Elmore officiating. She died
Friday nigfht at the home of Johnny
Moore fn this city. Some pioneers

been blind for many years and de

Masonic cemetery by the side of her
two dhildren, Susi Indian and

Eliza's father was a full-blooded
Calapooia brave, living on the Cala
pooia river in the upper valley. He
wandered south into Lane county,
where he found his bride, and it
was there that Eliza was born. Her
parents died when she was a small
child and was for a time virtually a
slave in the camps of anotftier peo
ple. She ran away and was taken
in and' cared for by Jacob Spores
and wife at what is now Coburg.
Eliza, in search of her fathers
people, ran away from Spores' ferry
to Brownsville. She was iust en

Blakely-Brown-Kirk emigrant train
arrived at the old ford on the Cala
pooia. It was understood that sine
was cared for at a very early day
by the Kirk family.
But she slipped away and went
into the southland again and there
was married to a Mohawk, brave.
This man drank incessantly and
beat Eliza unmercifully. She fre
quently ran away. At length Cal

Riley Kirk bought Eliza. Jim ihad
been raised by Kirk since the for

where constant supervision is necessary.
