ot a t,"par in prison. . ;.,
While working together in the
yard the two men became ac
quainted and when Moore was

$25, which she did. A. few days
later Moore called again and re
quested the , woman to cash a

two small children, is seeking to
make a living by running a small
confectionery store. Moore did not
hesitate to take advantage of her

idence rates in those exchanges."
The Oswego rates are brought
down to meet the Milwaukie rates.
At present the charge between Os
wego- and Portland is 10 cents for
station to station calls, and 15
cents for person to person calls,
and 5 cents war tax is charged,
making a total of 20. cents. This
is held by the commission to be
unreasonable and discriminatory
and is reduced to 5 cents for sta
tion to station, and 10 cents for
person to person calls.
Tariffs Due Jnly 1
In ordering the installation of a
meter service on the business lines
in Portland the commission re
quires the telephone company on
or before July 1 to submit to the
commission a properly balanced
tariff for measured service. The
minimum charge for each individu
al business phone shall not exceed
$5.50. The individual minimum
is now $10.
The commission finds that the
fair value for rate-making pur
poses of the property of the Pa
cific Telephone & Telegraph com
pany in Oregon was on December
31, 1922, the sum of $19,255,793.

With the fixed value of the ren
tenmark, issuing bad money has
become profitable, as the output
of the counterfeiter's press does
not drop in value.
Prussian state dollars and other
money of the Prussian government
have been counterfeited so widely
that many shops refuse to take
any of the money of this state.
There has also been a general
manipulation ot paper money
through alteration of the lettering.
Notes of one million marks are
frequently changed in to higher
denominations by making the
million read billion.
There has been such a variety
of paper money in circulation, all
the federated states and most of
the leading cities es well as the
railway administration and many
firms having issued their own
money, that the public is bemud
