rx-vO build op a large circulation
I X : legitimately, is the business
of any publication, but when a
Journal which puts cnjan appear
ance of dignity, honesty and sin
cerity, tf tries with a subject of
most vital importance to the well
being of the public, then It Is guilty
of a crime Indeed.
. For the past four months, the
Scientific American has been con
ducting an "Investigation" of
Electronic Therapy, and in each
issue It tells the sufferers of dis
ease, over a number of pages, that
as yet it Is not certain as to the
possibilities of this new method.
If yon are 111 and would like to
find out right away, then it Is
hoped you will be patient and pur
chase next and next number until
some . day perhaps the investiga
tors will arrive at a conclusion;
then if the circulation has reached
its highest point, it is thought that
this . "great" magazine of science
and invention will make known the
result." , . i
- a - .
Should the sufferer who is seek
ing the sanctimonious sanction of
this scientific scavenger die In the
meantime, at least he can rest in
peaee knowing that he contributed
to benevolent publication.
It is more than two years since
' the discovery of ' Electronic Medi
cine, has. been made known; more
than three thousand medical and.
osteopathic doctors have taken up
this good work and are attaining
most wonderful results; men and
women In , all walks of life have
Standard Lumber Uompany
Avers That. New Law Is

.The Standard Lumber company
yesterday Instituted in the cir

against state tax commission to
prevent its collecting the state in
come tax or enforcing any ol the
rules under the act. Attorney
General Van Winkle will file a de
murrer against the complaint
Monday and it will be , argued
early in the week, obviating the
necessity of the court's issuing a
restraining order.
.The- complaining company is in
corporated in Oregon, but Its busi
ness is all within the state of
Idaho.. The plaintiff alleges that
the tax denies it equal protection
of the law with other taxpayers.
The system of graduated rates is
declared to be arbitrary and capri
cious. - The complaint cites the
fact that the act provides exemp
tions from the tax to various Indi
viduals and corporations, notably

testified by the thousands to the
fact that they have been cured of
their ailments by this revolution
ary method of diagnosis and treat
ment, after all the old methods
had failed; noted professors from
a number of leading countries have
been convinced of the practical and
beneficiary results achieved by
Electronic Therapy in the struggle
to exterminate disease; three or
four publications (being free from
the taint of medical and surgical
trust advertisements) heralded this
only effective weapon against dis
eases which have baffled science.
And in all this time the Scientific
American, which pretends to stand
for speed and efficiency in all
things, has been yawning four
months attempting to awaken to
the truth.
With our present day means, of
communication and transportation,
which enables one to obtain de
tails on a subject almost over
night, it has taken this journal
more than two years to come out
and say each, month, I shall have
something of interest about Elec
tronic Medicine, next month!- -
We wonder if the Scientific Am
erican would wait two years to de
termine the reliability of a new
discovery to cure the public of ITS
brand of mental poisoning.
The person lying helplessly as
disease gnaws and saps at the vital
organs of life, cannot help but cry
out, in despair against those who
could bring aid hastily, but will
banks, insurance companies, trust
companies and companies hand
ling real estate. These exemptions
are called arbitrary and capricious
and as a result it is alleged that
the law does not operate in a uni
form . manner.
Anon-resident doing business
in the state, x says the complaint
is subject to the tax under his net
income derived within the state,
and the definition of such income
includes the proceeds from divi
dends. This ia said to be discrim
inatory as between corporations
having ' nonresident stockholders
and thuaa having no nonresident
stockholders, in favor of those not
having nonresidents among their
stockholder. The law is declared
to be unconstitutional in that it
imposes a tax upon the entire in
come of individuals and corpora
tions regardless of where and from
what source the income Is derived.
Regulations issued by the com
mission are declared to be at vari
ance with the act. The provision
that a copy of the federal Income
tax return must be filed with the
state commission is attacked on
grounds that It deprives the tax
payer of the secrecy contemplated
under the federal act.
Though the iSalem automobile
camp grounds have been open a
little less than two weeks, approx
imately 50 camping parties have
stopped overnight, several of them
for a few days, according to T. G.
Albert, superintendent.
Some work is being done on the
grounds, and the brush has been
cleared away as far west as the
bridge. A team and three men
were busy yesterday knocking off
the high spots and filling in some
of the worst of the low places.
Six new tents are up and the
remaining four, giving a total of
10 tent-houses, will be completed
In a few days. These are very much
are very much in demand on ac
count of the chilly nights. Each
is equipped with a bedsprfng that
is fastened back against the wall
during the day. A stove is sup
plied for each two tents.
Stickers are still in demand by
tourists, Mr. Albert said, and un
til these are received many are
being disappointed, for the sticker
is the first thing that is sought.

Medford forward, eluded his
guard for a close shot under the
basket. Eugene tied it up and the
quarter ended: Medford 2, Eugene
Medford Gains Lead
The second period was a repeti
tion of the first with neither team
able to secure an advantage in th6
game which had resolved itself
into one of the prettiest and clean
est checking games ver seen on
the local floor. At tie half Med
ford led f to 2.
During the third period the
play was all Medford's. Chastain,
the outstanding player of the
tournament, outdid himself with
score after score which the Eu
gene defense seemed unable to
stop. The Eugene men looked
tired and discouraged when the
quarter ended 15 to 6 in favor of
Medford. They were not through,,
however. By a esperate spurt
which for a time threatened the
lead of the southern champions,
they brought the crowd to its feet
yelling with excitement. The rally
came too late to be of avail. The
agme ended with Medford cham
pions 21 to 15. Let this be said,
that pike Leslie's Eugene men
were worthy contestants and good
McMlnnvillr Striving
In the afternoon Eugene had
found little trouble in vanquish
ing McMinnville 18 to 14. It was
not without the usual McMinnville
rally near the close of the game
which for a time threatened Eu
gene's chances, even as it over
whelmed Forest Grove and North
Bend earlier in the week. The
Eugene men, playing easily to
save themselves for the night's
contest, had accumulated a lead of
11 to 3 during the first half. With
but a fsw minutes left to play, Mc
Minnville uncorked their "come
back" rally and tied the score at
13 all. But just as it appeared
that McMinnville might take the
game, two Eugene scores nipped
the rally in the bud and saved the
Independence Surprises
Independence wa3 the surprise
of the tournament when in the
second semi-final game they got
away to a five-point lead on Med
fordTand ran them close during all
but the last quarter of play. P.
Schrunk and Baker for Indepen
dence had world's of luck on their
long shots and never failed to hit
near the basket. The skillful pass
ing and smooth team work of Med
ford gradually told, however, and
they won out 18 to 13.

The extinction of the Caliph

passion of the Young Turks for
the storied wealth of the Caliphate
There are said to be jewels, gold
and property worth several hun

into the keeping of the new gov
ernment and possibly obviate the
immediate necessity of a foreign
loan. It is a matter of dough
rather than of religion.

Is made the financial director of
some thirty-three corporations in
which his father, the famous in

not been utterly careless of the
rewards of genius. He has been
more Ihrifty than mot prolific in
ventors and has always had money
enough for his experiments and
laboratory work. But if he ha?
also invented a son who is a stem-

better than most of his clas3.

Ten indictments were made by
the rand jury when it reported
to Circuit Judge Percy R. Kelly
at noon Saturday. In a separate
report the prand jury paid tri
butes to officials of state institu
tions and urged tliat immediate
steps be taken to improve condi
tions at the boys' training school.
The report was made after the
grand jury had thoroughly inves
tigated the institutions, and said
that "there is nothing to be prac
tically improved upon."
In speaking of the boys' train
ing school, the report contained
the following statement:
"This institution is greatly
overcrowded, and that on account
of the facilities provided by the
state of Oregon, :t is impossible to
segregate boys who are viciously
bad from the unfortunate boys
who are capable of being made
good citizens. The management
of this institution is in competent
and trustworthy hands, and in
view of circumstances confronting

excellent showing. We heartily
