OREGON'S GREATEST NEED
Oregon's greatest need is advertising
Because advertising will bring all the other needs ; more
people for jthe industries on the land, linked up with more
people in the industries in the cities
, Giving a solid and balanced growth of population and
wealth; allowing every resource of our state to be steadily
developed on safe lines.
House bill 278 was defeated by a close vote in the lower
branch of the Oregon legislature a couple of days ago; but it
; is understood that there is to be an attempt at reconsidera
tion, because a number of members did not fuDy understand
And. this should be done; and the bill ought to pass. A
sponsor of the measure has made out a statement of the
"Objects and Purposes of the Bill," plain and to the point, as
This bill is not mandatory. It simply gives county authorities
authority to levy this tax, if they so desire.
The proceeds of this tax must be spent on legitimate development
and advertising, to suit the needs of the county. The levy can be for
all or any portion of the rate authorized in the bill.
The amount raised by the tax is entirely within the control of
the county. ' .
All the states and communities in America that are advertising, are
progressing. They are increasing their populations, bank deposits,
industries and the settlers on the lands.
These states, rather than devise means for reducing taxation, are
bringing more people into the state, to lighten the burden of taxation,
and to spread it over more people.
. 1 Oregon's greatest need is for new people, new industries, new set
tlers, but she is not getting them because she hasn't adopted the same
methods as other states.
Idaho, in this present legislature, is providing for a national adver
tising campaign, through legislative appropriation. It will advertise
to attract tourists, for new settlers, for new markets for its products,
and for new industries. It will be the fourteenth state to adopt an
advertising by taxation policy.
"Florida has brought more wealth into the state- in the pas t three
years,th"rdugh advertising, than in the previous 25 years. Four million
doUars is spent in advertising annually, raised by taxation.
California has a population equal to all the rest of the Pacific
coast. She has not any greater natural assets, or any more advan
tages than Oregon or Washinglno, but she has populated and develop
ed the state through advertising. California spends two and one-half
million dollars a year in advertising, one-half of which is raised by
. California has the same law that
under its provisions forty-eight counties in California have taken
advantage of the authority created.
Portland business men in the past years have raised $550,000 to
develop and advertise. Oregon, without one dollar from any other
portion of the state. Every part of the state has benefitted.
THE McNARY BILL
. The McNary bill passed the house last night. This is
what was known as the McNary-Haugen bill. But the Hau
gen. bill was withdrawn and the McNary bill substituted for
it in the house, after the McNary bill passed the senate
And the determined farm bloc and other supporters held
the house in continuous session, without dinner, last night,
in order to reach the vote that passed it. The bill now goes
to the president, and if he signs it, the bill will be the law;
the farm relief act; the only farm relief act that has been
considered that will give farm relief
Though whatever else it will do is problematical. One
thing certain, it will work. This is admitted by the greatest
living economists, though it will be an entirely new thing in
the world. ; No such an experment was ever yet tried on so
extensive a scale. In very few words, it is this:
It is 100 per cent compulsory cooperation. Take the case
of wheat. Say the United States produces 800,000,000 bush
els of wheat for sale in the markets. Say this country will
use,00,QOO,000 bushels of wheat. That leaves 200,000,000
bushels to sell outside the United States. The tariff duty on
- wheat is 42 cents a bushel. The board to administer the
McNary law will assess every bushel of wheat sold off the
farms, say 5 cents a busheL The price will be, say, 40 cents
: a btishel above the world price of wheat. This will give the
kj farmers who sell their wheat off their farms 35 cents a bushel
: above the worfd.price. The surplus of 200,000 bushels will
be fed into. the'. Vorld markets at what it will bring. The
5 cents a bushel paid: into the revolving fund will be used to
make up the losses on the exported wheat.' That is all there
is to at If a larger surplus of wheat is grown, the whole
amount sold will have to pay more than 5 cents a bushel to
make up the losses on the exported wheat, if the world market
is low, and the farmer will net less than 35 cents above the
world price. 4 1 1 '
i The bill as it is now mentions wheat, corn, swine, cotton
end rice as major crops each haying an exportable surplus;
but this 'tsonly- descriptive. The operation of the law may
; include ANY major crop with an exportable surplus, like
prunes, appletanything. ;
.' - No one is obliged to sell, anything. He may feed' or plant
his product on his farm, and pay nothing But if he sells any
product designated as coming under the operation of the law,
he mustpay"hefee to make iip the loss, if any, on the
exportable surplus. ' -" : '

bill 278 will give to Oregon, and.
But the above is all there is to it; it is just lOOper cent
compulsory cooperation ;i
And the 30,000,000 farmers of the United States, almost
to the last man, want it, and there is no telling what is going
to happen in the politics of this country if they do not get it.
The Cantonese armies are forging north. They will take
Shanghai. Great things were threatened by the heathen war

But if they come up against Feng's forces they will be

Christian soldiers, nor a more loyal one.
The Cantonese and the Feng armies will soon be in Pekin,
and, if they can agree, as they should, having much the same
