When he turned his attention to
rural credits Mr. Spence said the
pubject presented another InsLMce
"wher the tourist receives greater
consideration in the state of Oregon
that the farmer."
"When the land board received
Mdg below par for rural credit bonds

he continued. . "But when bids were
received as low as 92 cents on the
dollar for road bonds, evidently the
honor and credit of the state were
not Involved, for road bonds wee
sold at about that price.
A patriotic sentiment pervaded all
mention of the war made in the ad
dress. Mr. Spence said that no mat

evcuses for the war it had developed
into a contest for industrial and po
litical freedom on one side and of
military slavery on the other. He
