"V!y does the. company fait to

has it not given us a statement of
revenue and expense for the last
Six months of 1921? There is
every reason to believe that with
increased business due to opening
of canneries, berry packing, the
state fair and the holidays that
these last figures would tell an
other story."
Arising to a point of personal
privilege, Mr. Glesey asserted that
the question 6f" granting conces
sions to the street railways of Sa
lem was of vital importance to
every citizen of the community.
StatrmmtA (Challenged
"Mr. Suter has made several
unfounded statements and has
gone into detaif concerning con
ditions. In h's own locality, Seven
teenth street." said Mr. Giesy.
"He has said-nothing about the
thousands of dollars which the
company must vpend on State
street, and in other improve
ments." Alderman Hal D. Patton told
the councilmen that they should
consider well before acting upon
the company's' request for fran
chise changes.
"If we break down he fran
chise under wilch these roads
operate we Imperil the rights of
future generations of citizens,"
asserted ,Mr. Patton. "This city
is expanding and the revenue of
the company Is increasing. Bear
this In mind If we open the way
to an attack upon this franchise,
we will never recover , the lost
ground." ,t .
Alderman BauragartJier stated
that he favored granting 'a few
concessions toi the street railway.
He asserted that the foinpany
would carry it case to the public
service commission with the claim
that the city council refused to
aid. ' .

Savings to State Claimed
and Interest Earnings
Declared Larger
HIGHWAYS ADD TO CASH
Treasurer Would Extend
General Fund Law to Meet
Lack of Funds A
Development of the state htgn
way and irrigation district finance
program of. 1919 has caused the
cash activity of the state treas
urer's department to he treblet
in volume and detail, according
to the annual report of O. P. Hon
state treasurer, covering the year
1921.
By way of comparison the state
treasurer shows that in 1918 re
ceipts of the department totaled
110.503,177.61 and disbursements
$10,027,882.65. while in 1921 the
receipts were $34,378,560.62 and
the disbursements 135,580.464.
98. During the same period the
report says the number of funds
created by the statute increased
from 132 to 231 and the bonded
indebtedness of the state increas
ed $29,405,123 while the interest
on tbe bonds has Increased $717,
704. 4C.
Policy Defended -
"The following comparisons of
cash periods will reveal at once
the continuance of my policy or
maintaining low cash balances
and maximum investments and
deposits out of all funds under
my control," cays Mr. Hoff. "dur
ing the year 1918 the average
dally balance in the active state
depository, on which no interest
is earned, amounted to $2348;-
357.62 while the same balance
during the year 1921 was reduced
to $34,743.06; $6,40.4(r in in
terest was earned on the differ
ence In balances by being depos
ited in the inactive depositories
which pay 2 per cent.
"During the year 1918 there
was an average monthly .balance
in the industrial and ' segregated
accident funds of $2, 371, 3X2. $0
and these funds earned1 during
the year $68,708.98 in interest.
During 1921 the average balance
in these funds was $4,565,640.78
which earned $2 03,9 83.34 inter
est. If the same plan of invest
ments followed In 1918 had been
followed in 1921, the interest
earned in that year would have
been only $132, 264. 78, "thus
proving that my policy in hand
ling1 these funds increased then
earnings for the year $71,718.56.
Inheritance Taxes More
"Inheritance taxes collected
during 1918 amounted to $195.
643.02 while $321,924.09 was col
lected In 1921 or an increase of
$126,281.06. Strict property ap
praisals and investigations has
been responsible for much of this
increase, the appraised Value of
the property of estates so Inves
tigated having been raised 889,
891.27 during this year and $20,
026.10 additional tar collected,
besides an indirect Kain difficult
to estimate due to higher apprais
al resulting from this policy.
"A comparison of the fees and
tax collected end -Interest earned
by this office for the years 1918
and 1921 discloses an increase
for 1921 of approximately $350.-
000. It is true that a vastly larg
er amount of cash has been hand
led through this office during the
past year than that of 918, but
most of thia money has been de
rived from the sale of state high
way and other bonds of the state
which is. almost Immediately dis
bursed and on which practically
no inttrest is earned. To take
care of the increase In funds han
dled by the office of state treas
urer, I have designated 78 addi
tional state depositorits, thus
serving 73 more localities -wttti
state money. There were 135
state depositories in 1918 and
216 on Deotmber 31, 1921.
lw Change Advocated
M!n addition, when the general
fund was exhausted in 1921, and
warrants drawn on this fund were
required to be' endorsed 'not paid
tor want of funds.' after which
endorsement the warrants, under
the law, drew interest at the rate
of 6 per cent per annum. I made
arrangements with the Salem
banks by which these warrants up
to $500,000 were carried without
cost to ther state, for nearly four
months, thus saving "the state
$5,683.25 in interest and saving
the payees of the warrants any
discount The law creating the
general fund thould.be further
extended to avoid the necessity of
endorsing state warrants for lack
of funds. . ..
. "The total of savings aitd In
creased earnings resulting- from
the policy outlined about, am
ounts to mora than $103,800 for
the year 1921, and for the three
years of my administration, aver
ages $86,000 or a total of more
than a quarter of a million."

ISBOSEO OF
Pacific Co-operative Wool
Growers Report on Re
cent Business
Some intensely Interesting fig
ures have been made public con
cerning the operation of the Pa
cific Cooperative Wool Growers, a
farmers organization operating
throughout Oregon. It is not at
present a big association, but its
figures seem impressive.
The association, wth headquar
ters at Portland, has sold a little
more than 700,01)0 pounds of fine
and i, medium grades of Oregon
wool, and has handled a little
more than 900.000 pounds of
eoarse wool, the pools for which
have not yet been closed and set
tled for. For the fine wool, the
average price secured was 24.15
cents, while the medium brought
an average of 22.5 cents a pound;
and the-coarse wool, except braid
classification, 21.5 cents a pound.
These figures are impressive
compared with those received by
tiutside growers, as -shown, by
questionaires sent out by the as
sociation to unorganized growers
who have sold. Not all have re
ported, of course, but the reports
received show that the unorgan
ised growers have sold their fine
wool at an average of 12.5 cents,
their medium at 15.5 cents, and
their coarse wool at 9.5 cents.
This difference In favor of the or
ganized grower Is even more
marked .perhaps, than any shown
in the fruit business before the
Oregon Growers' association came
Into the field and boosted the
selling end of the farmers' game.
"We have about 100 members
In Maricin ounty at this time,"
said J. J. Thompson, of Macleay,
local representative for the asso
ciation. "We ought to have
more, and on this selling showing
we really yexpect to get ever
pound of wool In the Willamette
valley. If a man raises wool for
profit, he ought to get It and if
cooperation has saved the orange
and raisin business of California,
and the prune and berry business
of the Willamette valley, it ought
to do as much for the wool grow
er. From this showing, it is doing
even more for the wool grower
than it ever did for the fruit
man."
According to the shipping fig
ures tbe port of- Tarragona In
Spain sent 115,000 gallons of its
wine to America last year as
against 70,000 the year before.
The value of this export was al
most twice as great. They do not
exactly explain how they get the
stuff Into this country, but possi
bly they use a shoehorn.

Erroneous Ruling on Irriga
tion Districts Attributed
To Commission
IMPRESSION CORRECTED
Opinion by Attorney General
Supports the Statement
Made by Brumbaugh
Ex-service men in eastern and
central Oregn are bfiui miiled by
articles appeariug in their local
newspapers relative to the appli
cation of the state bonus and loan
law to lands in bonded irrigation
districts. Captain II. C. Brum
baugh, secretary of the ex-service
men's state aid commission, said
in a statement yesterday. A pur
ported ruling of the commission is
mentioned in the articles which
are said to be entirely erroneous.
Mr. Brumbaugh's statement is
supported by an opiniou yesterday
of Attorney General Van Winkle.
. Service Men Misled
"Ex-service men of eastern and
central Oregon are being misled
by articles appearing in their lo
cal newspapers discussing a pur
ported ruling of the commission
in regard to" lands in bonded irri
gation districts," said Captain
Brumbaugh.
"These articles are based on an
entirely erroneous report that the
commission has ruled that bonds
issued in an irrigation district con
stitute a first lien on land in the
district, and that it is therefore
impossible tor the owner of such
land to comply with the law re
quiring them to give the state a
first mortgage on the property a
security for the loan. For this
reason the report goes on to say.
the commission will not accept
such bonded property as security
for a loan. The articles also quote
the attorney general of the state
as the authority behind the com
mission in making such ruling.
Law Plain on Subject
"These newspaper reports are
utterly without foundation. The
law is plain on the subject, and
specifically excepts such liens in
stating the requirement as to the
first mortgage. The attorney gen
eral has never been asked for an
opinion on the subject by the com
mission,, and states that he has
never rendered such an opinion.
To make such a ruling as has been
reported would be illegal and In
direct contravention of the letter
and spirit of the law.
"There has been no discrimina
tion against lands in bonded irri
gation districts and that same will
be accepted as security for the
loan. As a matter of fact, orders
for apprasial of lands in bonded
irrigation districts have been sent
to the appraisers, which would
not have been done If there had
been any question as to the ac
ceptability of the security."
EDITORIALS
OF THE
PEOPLE
' Mexican Isle
As seen by one of the Salem
bunch. Referred to by the Sat
urday Evening Journal of
March 19.
Editor Statesman: As one ot
the Salemites referred to in the
Capital Journal of March 18th, I
want to call attention to a few of
the misstatements in that article
not that I feel It would have a
great deal of influence with peo
ple who are familiar with this so
called newspaper's attack on dif
ferent projects, but to those who
read such misstatements who mty
know its attitude.
Now as to the Island being pic
tured as a Garden of Eden, and
that all an investor had to do was
to sit in the shade and enjoy the
fabulous wealth that a bountiful
nature had spilled in their laps,
that statement seems too ridicu
lous to answer, and needless to
say, was never made or pictured
as such, bat was found just as
stated by Mr. O'Brien as undevel
oped to a great extent.
As to Salmites spending $50,
000 there I cannot say, but 1 for
one feel as though what money. I
have spent there I will come near
er getting, value received out of
than one who spends his money
for a so-called newspaper that
continues to misstate the facts to
the general public.
' The statement that the excur
sionists found but 300 or 400
acres slashed for clearing, and
only a fraction of this cultivated.
Is about as near the truth as many
of the other statements. Mr. Pur
vine has slashed, or had when we
were there, between 600 and 700
acres alone. Another company
from the Yakhna valley has sev
eral hundred, acres slashed and
part under cultivation; and there
are several other Individuals who
have quite an acreage cleared and
In crop, and can truthfully say I
ever saw such crops as are grow--fog
-en h-islftBd at thfat Mm. -The
Echegurans. another company on
the1 Island, has "hundred of acres
la eoeoanuta; and cbntray to the
statement" in the Capital Journal
as to their not startrnjr to bear be
fore they were eight years old.
many of the trees that are five
years old hare nuts on.
As to the island's exploitation
extending over a term of 10 years,
that I understand is also false, be
ing started about the time of the
war. and of course delayed on ac
count of war conditions. Tbe
price paid for land Is ISO and if
the same land was In this country
it would sell readily at $1000.
No cows or tnilk, he says, on
the island, and there are thous
ands of head of cattle. It's true
there are very few cows milked on
the island, but they are then, and
they give milk the same in Mexico
as in the United States.
Title to the land he emphasizes
as questionable: The Salem
crowd had an attorney with them.
Ifc was given a letter of introduc
tion by Francis J. Heney to a man
by the name of BooHlas. who is a
lawyer, a graduate of Harvard,
i and was a member of Carranza's
cabinet at the time he (Carranza)
was president of Mexico. This man
was asked as to the title of these
lands, and he assured the attor
ney from Salem that there was ab
solutely no question as to their
being able to hold the title to
same.
Yes. the island is covered In
places with brush. I should say
close to two-thirds of it. the other
third open prairie and covered
with grass of different sizes and
colors, and this too will have to be
plowed the same in Mexico as It
would be it situated near Salem
in order to get it Into crops.
The water level, he says, is re
ported by settlers on the island as
12 feet not four as represented.
Almost as near the truth as many
of the other statements. I ex
amined many different wells on
the island myself. The deepest
one I found was about nine and
one-half feet to water. Most of
them, however, were from four to
six feet. The morning 1 left there
we were out In the car yes, an
automobile, on some of those ter
rible roads spoken of. We put
down a test hole for water, and
were glad to find It at less than
four feet, for this particular wa
ter was on my land.
As to its taking six days to
make the trip from Los Angeles
to the island as set forth in this
article of the Capital Journal, we
were actually on the train two and
one-half days and three nights
from Los Angeles.
As to the roads being impassa
ble three months of the year I
cannot say, but I feel quite sure
that is in parity for truth with
most all the other statements, as
this itf a very sandy soil and I feel
the rain would naturally make it
better instead of Impassable.
As to there not being any mar
ket for anything grown on the
west coast of Mexica, or anything
to sell from there as the piece In
the Journal reads I will give you
a clipping taken from the Nogales
paper of February 14 issue, and
allow yon to draw your own con
clusions as to the truth of that re
mark: Heavy Tomato Train Arrives from
RaifrBla ?
"Early yesterday afternoon, one
of the S. P. de Mexico locomotives
chugged into the Sonora yards
from the south, a string of 27 re
frigerator cars trailing behind
loaded with tomatoes from Slna

lutely true. Jn fact. I know it to
be a fact that Mr. Purvtne'a own
children are paying for land there
at this time, by taking so much a
month out ot their salary to ap
ply on what Frank Parvlae ad
vised them to buy.: Does, It look ,
reasonable that 1m wonld advise
his own children to put their hard
earned money in It-If he did not
feel it was a good. Investment, and
had a future; and Is it not rea
sonable to think such men us Pur
vine, who is well-known in and
near Salem, who' has made a suc
cess of his own business, and will
advise or allow hla own children
to put their money In this to
gether with his own money? It it
not more- reasonable to think his
judgment would be better than
some disgruntled pessimist who Is
seeing nothing but the dark side
of everything as it seems to be
some people misfortune to do?
I am only one of the Salemites
referred to but I think they were
all. as free from, any hypnotic
state referred to as I feel I was.
and as to our investing $30 per
acre la this land, I guess the most
of us made this money, without the
learned Editor's advice, and nat
urally feel we should be allowed
to spend some of it in the way. we
please and without being held Up
to ridicule and sit Idly by and have
the facts misstated In most every
particular as has been done In this
case.

We have read the above letter
of Mr. Eoff and will Touch for
every statement he has made as
being true. - -,;..-'
