First Proposition on Ballot
IN the remaining days before the election The Statesman
will take up and discuss each proposition which is to be
voted on in the election of Nov. 4th. There are many im
portant political and economic questions coming up, some of
which have had scant consideration paid them.
The first proposition is a proposed amendment to the
state constitution for the repeal of the - state payment of
irrigation and drainage district interest. The numbers are
300, yes; and 301, no.
We recommend to the voters of the state to vote 300,
In 1919 the people adopted a constitutional amendment
by which the state would certify the bonds issued by irri
gation and drainage districts and would guarantee the in
terest for five, years. Under this amendment the state issu
ed $2,172,760 in bonds. The -districts almost without excep
tion are in default. The state hasr received, only $260,295
back from the districts and
its investment plus about two mmionoiollars of interest on
So costly has this experiment .proved that no new dis
tricts are being created under the 1919 amendment which
is thus practically; a dead letter. i
Gov. Pierce and Gov. Patterson recommended, the-repeal,
and the legislature passed the pTnftgX repealing
amendment. In order to clear the article otrtof ;,fhe consti
tution and prevent any future -irrigation -flajrmidef state

At night sne was airaia to
leave her hotel room lest Ken
should call her on the phone and
miss her. She snatched a hasty
dinner on her way up from the
shop, and spent the long nights
in her little aerie perched high
above the . city, waiting for the
telephone to ring.
She could not read, much less

loomed in their path. Ken swung

Agnes Laut. In "The Fur
Trade of America," says: "In the
historr of the world only one
corporate company has maintain-,

as Europe. Only one corporate
company's sway has been so ben
eficient that its profits have
stood in exact proportion to the
well being of its subjects."

She refers to the Hudson's
Bay company. Their charter of
1869 or 1670 designated them
the "Adventurers of England
Trading into Hudson's Bay,"
called now the -Hudson's Bay
company, and stfll trading with
savages in the white wilderness
of the north as it was when
Charles II gave a royal grant for
the fur trade to his cousin Prince
Rupert Aad Prince Rupert, first
governor of what was designated
as "Prince Rupert's Land," a
country of unknown extent run
ning west from Hudson bay, was
succeeded by the Duke 61 York
(James II); and the royal gov
ernor by a line of distinguished
men down to Lord Strathcona,
the empire builder, who so long
controlled the destinies of the
Canadian Pacific railroad.
Their chief factors, like Dr.
Mr. Loughlin, have ruled empires
in extent with greater than king
ly power; under the egis of par
liamentary law. Their forts have
for nearly 300 years dispensed
hospitality and help with a more
lavish hand than the ancient
baron in bis castle.
In the far north, yet, the bea
rer wkin is the unit of coin, as it
was when Dr. McLoaghlin ruled
the old Oregon country. The Es
kimo hunter, whose knowledge
of arithmetic Is confined to his
two hands, eomes to the trader
with bis winter's catch. The
trader holds up one, two or three
fingers, as the case may be,
meaning that he offers the val
ue fat terms of one, two or three
prime beaver skins. If the Eski
mo demands more, they bargain
with their fingers until an agree
ment Is reached. The value is
paid' In a blanket, a shirt beads,
powder, knives, traps, tobacco,
etc. 1 etc.
From out of the north come
ermine, "fox, - rynx, mink, marten,
otter, and all the long list rep
resenting values in furs and
skins and hides. The precious
catches come In ox carts, by boat,
by dog sleds; In a dozen other
ways. The aggregate of the trade
is enormous. There Is still an em

It runs to the Eskimos under
the Arctic circle; takes in the
wandering Montagnais from the

Sioux from the plains; the Black-
feet and the Crows, the assassins

That company has ruled a sav

Christians that they put his

Returning to civilization, the '
official was observed attending
the services of his own denom

than was his wont, and taking a
greater interest in the affairs of
his church. Asked the reason, he

would be blankety blanked if he
would allow heathen Indians to
be better Christians than he was.

Some of the Indians get into
debt to the great company, for
supplies without which they
would suffer from hunger or
starve. But the debt Is never col
