rHIS is a new disease, but it has bitten America badly.
Now the stage lines have formed a vast merger, nd are
planning to divide "all Gaul into three parts." And they
ave no lack of gall in doing- it either. The wholesale drug
.louses have suddenly found the necessity of a "merger" al
hough wholesale drug houses have always been prosperous.
Part of the tendency toward larger units in industry is
he natural result of greater economy in mass operations. A
ot of this "mergeritis" disease is spread by financial houses
reeking big clean-ups in floating a lot of securities. Scouts
-fbig banking houses have been scouring the country f ind
ng going businesses, utilities, etc., which they could "merge"
;nto new concerns and peddle millions of dollars worth of se
curities to the public which is merger-crazed.
Those on the inside of the financial game can't help but
'ronder how it will come out. The proprietor of a business
unds himself approached by some representative of a buy-
ng group. He is offered a big price to "come in", or the
hreat of bitter competition if he stays out. If the chap has
nade his pile and is about through anyway, he sells out.
The buyers then do a lot of "window-dressing" on the fi
nancial statement and sell bonds and preferred stock or
"Class A" stock to the dear public, retaining the Class B with
iull voting power and no money investment for themselves.
If all goes well, they win ; if things go ill, they do not lose.
We heard of one such case where a plant manager re
fused to stay under the reorganization. He said he would
be expected to earn dividends on a greatly enlarged capital
zation and it couldn't be done, so he didn't want to carry the
It is going to be interesting to watch what happens
when the next big upset in business comes. Unless many of ,
.hese concerns have time to dehydrate themselves, there, will
be many a deluge to engulf the innocent investor.
Elsinore or Armory
IT is just too bad for the sweet girl graduates that they
can's have their party just when and where they want
t. Tis a pity to buy the graduation gown, next in girlish
?ancy to a wedding gown and then find that the evening af
fair is turned to a morning (shall we say mourning?) occa
sion. We confess for a time we shared their resentment,
.hat their plans should be frustrated by the powers that be.
But surely the beautiful Elsinore will be more appro
priate for graduation than the bleak and dreary armory,
its facilities for illumijiation will make the gowns of white
ind pink, of crepe and georgette more showy than the bare
bulbs of the boxing-match emporium.
Besides graduates and faculty historically disagree over
Lhe place for commencement, the time, the speaker, the one
l.o give the baccalaureate sermon, the rehearsals, the honors,
the cost and style of gowns, the program arrangements.
Only when the great day comes everyone smiles, the principal
says it is the finest class ever to graduate, the chairman of
the board, embarrassed at his official task, hands out thdi
plomas, the parents beam, and the juniors suddenly feel old.

1 Travel Loquacity
I7HY is it that travel breaks customary silence. A fi
T T nancier can grind away in New York for a decade and
never give an interview, but when he boards the Berengaria
or the Homeric for a trip to
interview. A Portland broker returiis from a trip to New
York or San Francisco and his observations are solemnly set
down. The result seems to be that the whole financial world
seems to be traveling, the quotations and interviews are so
The real joke of it is that
piffle, meaningless comments retailed from some curb wise
acre in a big town whose knowledge of the country is con
fined to tickers and tabloid. "Private information" stays
private only a few hours, and it travels faster than word of
mouth in these days of news -

man of Thursday morning. Her
work would do credit to any one.
But she made a mistake in say
ing "Salem has been the capital
of Oregon since 1859." Oregon
was admitted to the Union as a
state Feb. 14, 1859. She is the
valentine state. But Salem has
been the capital of Oregon since
January 13, 1851, when the terri
torial legislature in session at
Oregon City removed the seat of
government from that city to this.
That vote was the end of a long
fight, and it did not end with
that vote either. In the legislature
of the provisional government for
1845, held at Oregon City, Gov
ernor Abernethy suggested tbat
proposals be received for locating
permanently the seat of govern
ment. This was followed by pro
posals from Linn City, across the
river, and by a petition from
Champoeg (the present Marion)
county signed by 60 persons,
asking that the scatter be defer
red. This was virtually done, by
an act ot the legislature of the
provisional government ordering
future sessions of that body to be
held at Oregon City.
The long fight following the
vote of the territorial legislature
of January 13, 1851, was precipi
tated by the contention of Terri
torial Governor Gaines that the
act was invalid, because it em
braced two subjects, the location
of the capital and the construction
of the territorial buildings. This
became a political question; the
democrats were in favor of Salem
and the whigs favored Oregon
City. The record is too long for
this column: and the issue too in
volved for a short article.
The next session of the territor
ial legislature after the vote lo
cating the capital in Salem was
held In this city, with the excep
tion of five members who met at
Oregon City, claiming that was
the place for the meeting. There
was a question where the terri
torial supreme court should have
its sessions, aa the law admitting
Oregon as a territory said that
body was to meet at the capital
and part of the members held that growing in attraction as an an
Oregon City was the place, and anal affair at Lebanon.
Can This Be A Hoover Economy?
the balance holding for Salem. So
the majority in the supreme court
for Oregon City, at one session.
In 1855. the territorial legis
lature at Salem moved the capital
to Corvaliis, but federal authori
ties refused to expend government
funds elsewhere than in Salem,
and back to Salem the legislature
came, and the newly completed
statehouse was occupied on De
cember 18, 1855; but that build
ing was destroyed by fire eleven
days later; no doubt of incendiary
origin. The burned building stood
where the present capitol is lo
cated. Those were bitter days in the
political affairs of Oregon, and of
the whole nation. Had not the
claims of Salem been supported
by Willamette university and Its
graduates, this city would not
have remained the capital. That
institution started Salem, and
gave it its place as the official cen
ter of the commonwealth.

destroyed the Damascus dairy

near Portland.
Firemen fought the blaze for
three hours. The buildings, con.
