Editor Statesman:
The nature of my work pre
vents me from taking an active
personal part for the success of
(he soldiers' bonus measure which
comes before the people for their
endorsement next week, so I am
asking a short space in your col
umns in which to urge the favor
able action of the voters of Mar
ion county thereon and to ask
that they take time between now
and election day to study the sub
ject, talk it over with friends and
neighbors, to -go to the polls them
selves, and insist upon their ac
quaintances doing likewise.
I am aware that all tax-raising
movements are naturally unpopu
lar, but the ultimate result of the
success of the bonus measure will
be the reduction of taxes in Ore
gon by increasing the home-builders,
the developers of industry,
the producers of wealth, the tax
contributing forces, so that from
that standpoint it is a movement
of great economic value for the
future. It means that the state
will use its credit to finance sev
eral thousand vigorous, patriotic
young men to establish homes and
productive enterprises in Oregon
and that the state will be fully
reimbursed by those men from the
products of their industry, while
during the years of that reim
bursement they will also contrib
ute their full share in the prog
ress and advancement of the state
In supporting the schools, the
churches and the various civic en
terprises of the state, and sharing
In the exactments of taxation with
their fellow men.
This action is similar to that
of the parent who has a worthy
son and has not the capital to give
him a decent start, but is willing
to go to the bank and assist the
young man in borrowing the ne
cessary sum. The young man in
time pays it back and the father
loses nothing. The action is sim
ilar, but with this difference: In
the case of the father, he gains
nothing except the satisfaction of
having assisted the son, while in
the case of this bonus the state
not only will have the satisfaction
of aiding a son who has proven
worthy, but will also derive a
substantial and permanent bene
fit from the productive enterprise
it has made possible.
I was one of many who went
to the school houses, the theaters
and the public platforms in the
Red Cross, the liberty loan and
other patriotic missions in which
the sympathies of loyal Americans
were enlisted a few years ago.
In the name of the American peo
ple and by the authority 'of state
and national officials I promised
the "boys" who went out to rep
resent Oregon in the conflict for
the protection of human liberty
and American honor that they
would not be forgotten or ignored
when that conflict should end.
Now, I want to see that prom
ise fulfilled. Those young men
dkl their duty faithfully and well.
They brought pride and glory to
the state of Oregon. They freely
gave all they had to give. They
loft a good period of productive
time when others were reaping
great harvests of profit. Let us
now be willing to loan our credit
co that they may be given a start
la life.
Honor to a nation's defenders
is an investment which produces
patriotism and is a credit to a
nation's citizenry. Ingratitude to
them is a national disgrace and
breeds disloyalty.

Outcome of Poulsen Against
Hoff May Mean Thous
ands to State
Should the appellant prevail in
the supreme court in the case of
Poulsen, as executor of the R. D.
Inman estate against State Treas
urer Hoff. a rebate of $36,000 in
inheritance taxes would be due the
Henry L. Pittock estate of Port
land, and about $50,000 to other
estates. The case was argued in
the supreme court yesterday.
The question is whether the
amount collected by the govern
ment in estate taxes should be
deducted from the amount of the
estate, on which inheritance taxes
are paid the state. Treasurer
Hoff was upheld in the lower
court by Judge Tazwell of Mult
nomah county and Poulsen appealed.
