expanding requirements or tne
district served by the Company,
this Company has steadily in
creased its invested capital to pro
vide the facilities with which it
is rendering public service. In the
past these additional investments
of capital have come from outside
the Portland district. It is the
purpose of the company to con
tinue to give good service and to
expand Its facilities to meet the
increasing demands upon it. To
accomplish this large additional
sums of capital must be procured.
Investment in these notes by the
people of the districts served
wonld be mutually advantageous.

operations directly affect, benefit
and serve nearly ont-half of the
population of the state. Its suc
cess depends 'upon the character
of its service and the confidence
reposed in it by the people It
serves. To possess and to merit
that confidence is and should be
the aim of every man and woman
employed in publie service. There
in lies not only the satisfaction of
properly discharging our duties to
the public, but also the certainty
that if the public is satisfied it is
willing to pay this great laborer
an adequate wage.
' "There is always a demand for
the service to be rendered. That
demand is constantly increasing.
Our growth and the growth of
the communities served by us go
hand in hand. We must at least
keep pace with he demands for
our service, and?" if possible, our

aid In the further development of
this territory, and would also pro
vide an attractive, sound invest
ment. The company. frankly wish
es to have financially Interested
in it as many as possible of those
senred by it. The expenditures
for betterments and additions to
the property of the company dur
ing 1921 will exceed the total
amount of the note issue now of
fered. .
- The company conducts a most
essential business and by reason
of diversity of the demands for its
service, its operations are not sub
ject to the violent fluctuations fre
quently experienced in the conduct
of business with a less diversity of
use. The publie .generally through
out the nation now recognize the
essential nature of the business
conducted by public utilities and
the principles of regulation now
in force are Intended to assure the
public of adequate service at rea
sonable rates and to protect hon
est investment competently man
aged. Regulating authorities con
Cede that the best interests of all
the people are thus terved.
Supplementing this statement
President Franklin T. Griffith
adds the following in a letter Just
issued: ;
The laborer Is worthy of his
hire. This corporation Is the most
important laborer in Oregon. Its
requirements. This means that
additional investment must be
made steadily and continuously.
"Our operations provide steady
employment. They are not sub
ject to the violent changes fre
quently experienced in other In
dustries, t .
"We have passed through a crit
ical period. The costs of opera
tion have enormously increased In
the last few years and relief .was
alow in coming, but I think we
may now confidently say that
there is a wide-spread recognition
of the right of such corporations
as ours to receive from the users
of their service an amount equiv
alent to the cost of that service,
and today there is also public rec
ognition of the principles that in
vestment honestly made and com
petently administered is entitled
to a fair return. We may look
forward, therefore, with confi
dence that we will receive fair
treatment as long as we deserve It.
Money to finance this company
has heretofore been sought princi
pally outside the state of Oregon.
it is believed that It wonld be mu
tually advantageous if we, who ar,e
employes of the corporation, and
also the people directly served by
the corporation, should be finan
cially interested In It. With that
purpose, the corporation is now of
fering to its employes, its patrons
and the publie generally $1,000,-
000 of 5-year Gold Notes bearing
a per cent interest. The new in
vestment for additional facilities
to be made during the year 1921
will materially exceed the amount
of the note Issue now offered."

A tie vote was the best Sena
tor Moser could do yesterday
when he attempted to have re
considered the Staples teacher
tenure bill which was defeated in
the senate Saturday, and for want
of a majority his 'motion to re
consider failed. He announced
that if. the vote to reconsider
were successful he , would hare
the vote tabled temporarily.'
In speaking on the measure
again Moser vigorously assailed
those who opposed the bill;! par
ticularly the Multnomah delega
tion. Of the latter he said, all
were for the bill except those who
wished to curry favor with the
teachers with reference to politi
cal asperations. Also he lambast
ed the senators oatside of Mult
nomah county to whose counties
the present tenure law does not
apply. Of W. F. Woodward of
the present school board. Senator
Moser declared that his support
of the present tenure law was in
accord with a promise made the
teachers before the election, at
which he was made a member of
the board, but that h$ did not
tell anyone else of his position at
that time. '
Turning upon Senator Gill of
the Multnomah delegation, Moser
accused him of having promised
to vote for the Staples bill aud
of having flopped fi?e times. -
Senator Gill and Jones replied
elaboratelv to Moser h remarks.
Senator Vinton, explaining his
negative bote, attacked the whole
Multnomah delegation, asserting
that each faction was trying to
f ram a . political advantage over
the other.
