nounced yesterday. The general nor

bear made its appearance. Mrs. Cal
verley hurled a small grip in Its dl
rect'on, which only enraged it. In
desperation she seized an empty
five-gallon oil can which was in the
rear of the machine and began beat
ing on it and screaming. This was
too much for Bruin and he disap
peared in the woods.
Packers who passed by the next

on Ballot Measures
TO THE VOTERS: Portland, Oregon, November 3, 1922.
The Taxpayers' League of Portland submits herewith its explanation
of certain measures having; to do with taxation and finance which are
to be submitted to the voters at the election to be held on Tuesday,
November 7, 1922, and its recommendations thereon.
It should be kept in mind that to a great extent the increase in
taxation has resulted from intermittent, indiscriminate, and unsyste
matic voting of taxes without the voters being fully advised as to the
effect thereof. Generally speaking, each subiect of taxation has behind
it some group of citizens who are particularly interested in the outcome
of that issue and is treated by itself without giving consideration to
the effect it may have upon the general tax.
It is frequently stated that with an increase in population a decrease
in taxation will follow. The following tabulation showing the increase
in population and in taxation for a number of years speaks for itself:
Increase of population and taxation for all nurnoses. Multnomah county,
including Portland and state.
Est. Census. Est. Census. 1920 over
1905 1910 1915 1920 1923 1910
Population 133,067 226,261 246,725 275,893 21.94
Tot. tax all purposes In mills 14.S 22 25.4 44.S 46 est. 87.6S
Increase of state population and state taxation in Slultnomah county.
Est. Census. Est. Census. 1920 over
1905 1910 1915 1920 1923 1910
Population 449,474 672,765 759,942 783,389 16
Tot tax all purposes In. mills 1.4 2 2.7 9.93 9.50 est. 400
The estimated tax for the city of Portland an Multnomah county for
the year 1923 does not include either the tax for the fair bill or the tax
for any bonds issued for the bridges. This tabulation shows conclusively
that taxes have increased far out of proportion to the increase in population.
We submit as a test for voters to apply in
measures the following: "Do we need it?" not

v STATE MEASURES
Permitting; Linn county to levy a tax to pay outstanding; warrants.
300 Yes. 301 Wo.
This is a measure permitting Linn county, Oregon, to levy a tax to
retire outstanding warrants. From reliable sources we learn that this
is a necessity.
Voters are advised to vote 300 Tes.
Amendment permitting; Link and Benton counties to pay ontstandlnR
warrants. 302 Yes. 303 No.
This measure is for the same purpose as the one just above described,
covering both Linn and Benton counties.
Voters are advised to vote 302 yes.
Single tax constitutional amendment. 304 Yes. 305 No.
This is a single tax measure and is substantially the same measure
heretofore repeatedly submitted to the people of this state and voted
down on each occasion.
Voters are advised to vote 305 No.
State tax for exposition in city of Portland. 30S Yes. 309 No.
Voters should vote "No" on this measure in order to prevent levying
of a new tax for an unnecessary purpose, as well as for a non-governmental
purpose. A vote for the exposition tax helps to commit the whole
state to the praposed Portland fair. Once the state commits itself by
vote of the people it cannot escape taxation for an adequate state building
and state exhibit. People who think otherwise are simply deluding them
selves to their own loss. Private property shouid not be taken for any
thing except the most necessary publip purposes, especially in times like
these with the tax burdens already unbearably heavy. Neither the state
nor the city measure should be approved. If they are, it will certainly
mean a greatly increased tax on all property within the state. Do not
be influenced by the talk that increased population will decrease taxation.
The facts are otherwise. What Oregon needs are conditions that will
encourage industry and production. Fairs do not tend to bring about
these conditions. They furnish places for a few men at high salaries,
entertain a few, but do not encourage investment. With conditions as
they are in the world, including our own country, a fair would be merely
a local exhibition and of no consequence. There is but one way to reduce
taxes, or even hold them as they are, and that is to refuse to continue to
vote additional taxes.
Voters are advised to vote 309 No.
Income tax amendment. 310 Y'es. 311 No.
The report of the commission appointed by the governor on the above
subject is About ready for submission. The proposed law is unscientific
and will not reach the result sought. We advise voters to await the care
fully prepared report of this commission before they commit themselves.
Voters are advised to vote 311 No.
Compulsory education bill. 314 Yes. 315 No.
As this is not a tax question and the Taxpayers' league' only recom
mends on tax measures or matters of finance, we make no recommenda
tion on this measure.
City tax for exposition In city of Portland. 500 Ye. 501 No.
In addition to the reasons given heretofore for voting against the state
tax in connection with the proposed Portland fair, we desire to suggest
the following: To make the exposition a success It must have the support
of the "whole state, and the state must share in establishing and maintain
ing it. No fair can be a success unless it has the united support of the
people of the city and of the state in which it is held. The proposed fair
has neither the united. support of the state nor of the city. The proponents
of the fair are asserting that $4,000,000 will completely finance it. This
is just the beginning, and if this bill is carried there is no question but
that additional money will be sought. So-called "non-taxpayers" must
not be deluded by thinking that they will escape their part of the burden.
Every one in this city and in the state will pay his share in increased
expenses of all kinds. The proponents of the fair say that the taxpayers
will only be called upon for a small amount, and that this is spread over
three vears. It should be borne in mind that it is these small amounts
added together that make the big ones, and this illogical reason is the one
that is most frequently advanced to bring about an increase in taxation
that otherwise would not be voted and is not required.
Voters are advised to vote 501 No.
Creating a new judge for the municipal court. 503 Yes. 503 No.
From the advice the Taxpayers' league has received it has concluded
thatan increase in the municipal court expenses is wnony unnecessary
and that If voted it will create new officers and additional burdens with-
out any compensating advantages.
Voters are advised to vote oim Jo.
Amendment to charter providing for extenion of period for paying
bonded assessments. 504 Yes. 505 o. .
This is a measure allowing a person who has oonoea nis property tor
street or sewer assessments and who is not in a position to pay tne bal
ance due to rebond for one-half of the original assessment and for a
period of not exceeding five years upon payment of all prior general
taxes, .ine league is oi wie upunuu umi li.io a. j,.vFw
that it Will not only help the city to collect money that couia not other
wise be collected, but will also help property owners.
Voters are advised to vote 504 1 es. '
Amendment to charter changing method of establishing and changing;
street grades. 506 Yes. 507 Ho,
The proposed measure aenies tne rigni oi remuiisuauce io piuptiu
owners In a district wno may nave io pay epeviai naswuejn
benefit, while it gives the right ot remonstrance to an owner wnoso
property is injuriously affected- We oppose the measure because it la
'Voters are advised to vote 507 No.
Three-mill levy. 50K Yes. 509 No.
While not convinced that the entire amount Is necessary, the league
feels that this levy is a maximum amount and that the city commission
will not require nor use the full amount. Under the circumstances we
approve the measure.
Voters are advised to vote ova ies.
Giving power to commission of public docks to condemn property not
immediately required for public use and to lease tne same, oiu res. on no.
In our opinion this Is an attempt to comer tne nsnt to exercise cu
condemnation on the dock commission and to confer the power upon it to
engage in a real estate business for the purpose of leasing property so
acquired for industrial sites to private pamco. ms uyuocu uui..
Voters are advised to vote on imo.
Amendment to charter nroviding for issuance of bonds for additional
Improvements to water system and for refunding water bonds due July 1,
1923. 512 Y es) 513 o.
As we are advised, this Is considered a necessary meauuie.
Voters are advised to vote 612 Tes.
Bnrnside Bridge. 12 Yes; 13 No.
A new bridge at Burnside street is a necessity. We therefore favor
this measure. However, we wish it distinctly understood mat mis ap
proval does not carry with it our approval of any particular type of bridge,
but that this matter should be left open for careful consideration here
after. On the contrary, we assume that the county commissioners are
not committed to any plan but will avail themselves of the best engineer
ing Judgment and skill before finally commencing construction.
Voters are aoviseo to vote i iea.
Ross Island Bridge. 14 Yes; 15 No.
A careful consideration has convinced us that a bridge at this point
will be a necessity by the time it can be constructed. The remarks as
to the character of bridge to be constructed apply to the, Ross Island
bridge the same as the Burnside bridge.
Voters are advised to vote 14 Yes.
