mHE maps show the city of Salem' with a tar, indicating
;1 that it is the state capital of Oregon. But if a person
- comes to Salem expecting to transact business with the
statTboard of health, the fish and game control, or some
two score other bureaus, boards and comiions he wiU be
jold that they are located in Portland. That city has be
: iome a sort of junior capital of the state. The practfce has
grown by degrees, for one cause or.anpUir. rtUttf
of government is not located here in the f ull j degree that
lt Thlre is no particular jusification for maintaining' any
boards or bureaus in Portland merely because it. is a large
city., Specific functions like grain inspection,! haye fcv be
carried on where the grain is, which is at the, St.ohn ter
minals; but most of the other offices could be-kept at Sa
lem at much less cost to the taxpayers. - . 1 t
Take the practice of the highway commission in meeting
in Portland. This evidently grew out of the fact that some
bi business man of Portland has for years served on the
commission and out of deference to him Mid to save him
time, the meetings would be held there. The result is that
whenever there is a meeting of the commission the work
of the highway office here ; is disrupted for one, , two. or
three days. The executive members of the staff pile into
cars and spend one or two days in Portland at state ex
pense. With most of them the novelty of traveling about
has worn off -and they probably would prefer to remain
right at home. But most of them go to Portland because
there is a chance that they might be called on for informa
tion. Sen. Spaulding counted 14 of the department there
at one session. If the sessions were held here the men
would be on call, continuing with their regular duties mean
time. All the data would be instantly available. ' ;
Moreover persons having business with the commission
often come from up the valley, from the coast or southern
Oregon, and would save time and money by stopping in Sa
lem. Contractors go where the bids are to be opened, no
matter where that is. The board of control doesn't move
'down to Portland to open bids on some state building.
I" The state board of education should meet here, the
-state board of health ought to, keep its office here, and the
game commission, and on down the line. Salem is just wak
ling up. It ought to carry on" a vigorous and incessantjcam
paign to restore these divisions of government to the seat
of government. Portland has been nibbling for years at the
state capital.. Salem will have to work to regain what prop
erly belongs in this city. i ; j ;
The Spokane Case j
;fTlHERE is in progress at Spokane before Federal Judge J.
JL Stanley Webster, a tax case of grave interest to i the
state of Washington, and possibly of interest to many other
states. The leading railroads of the state have been en
gaged in a battle for some year to set aside assessments
for the years 1925, 1926 and 1927. They assert they were
overvalued as compared with other real property in j the
state. As numerous counties in Washington, have extensive
railroad mileage on which they collect heavy taxes, there
is much local concern over the outcome of the case, whether
' the railroads will get tax rebates or not. 1 1 j 1
The case was tried for two years before a ' special ref
eree Ralph B. Kaufman of ETlensburg, who found for the
, txailroads, and formulated a new rule of determining their
" value, capitalizing their net earnings on a seven per cent
basis. The railroads and the counties are now battling over
whether the judge will accept the findings of , the referee
or not. ' - . - 1 ; .'. -'.
There will doubtless be considerable criticism of this
rule of determining values, for in years like 1930 where the
net earnings were nearly wiped out, the roads would pay
very little tax, whereas the functions of government have
to go on just the same: schools, city, county and state gov
eminent. - i
The significant thing in the case for all states is that
they, cannot continue to make the railroads bear the brunt
f heavy taxes and at the same time starve them. In re
cent years taxes have taken from the roads a sum approxi
mately equal to the amount paid out in dividends. Taxes
have mounted far more rapidly than earnings or invest
ments. The worm turns after
come to realize that if the
they must first earn them.
.Other states should not
in tne wasnington case, out take care that in, taxing rail
roads they do not kill the goose that lays the golden eggs.
' The Ooen Columbia ! "
AFTER barrels of printers ink in the way of free pub
licity .about the open Columbia river, the steamship
Umatilla sailed upstream Tuesday' loaded with grain bags
for the interior wheat shinmnir towns. A Pro TTairoe

The river has been open for years, ever since the Ce

ooats on tne river to aemonstrate the truth of their belief
in the feasibility of use of the Columbia. The water is
there, the locks are there,

The average height of a baby
at birth Is 20 inches and at ma
turity the individual Is three and
his length at
the first year a
about ten Inch
es la length
and in the sec
ond year from
six to eight in
ches. Few peo
ple realise it
but by the time
a child is two
years of age he
more than halt
the height he
will have as an
Vt. C a Ztaaer
Th height of individual chil
dren varies a great deal depend
ing on sex and family character
istics. The height Is not so apt to
be influenced by infections or
diseases as does the weight.
When there is a great variation
from, the average, say ten percent
above or below, the child's condi-f
tion would bear Investigation.
The presence of some disease pro
cess would manifest Itself by un
dergrowth while some abnormal-
ity in certain Internal secretions
from glands can either stnnt the
growth or cause an abnormal In
crease. Babies corn without suffi
cient thyroid (goitre) gland
would be stunted in growth and
are called cretins. Distarbance
of the glands located in the brain
cause an acceleration in growth
beyond th normal. Beginning of
the functioning of the sex glands
also stimulates growth, but this
occurs during pubertyr
weight at birth is usually
about seven pounds, averaging a
little more in boys than in girls.
At 11 years a child weighs- ap
proximately ; ten times his birth
weight and as an adult about 20
times the birth weight. Boys us
ually weigh more- than girls until
about the age of 12. again spurt
ing ahead at 14 years. The rea
son for this lies in the fact that
the age of puberty in the girl an
tedates that of the boy by a year
to a year and a half. -
As in the case of height, small
variations - from the normal or
average need be the cause for any
concern, however, any child ten
percent below or 20 percent
above the average weight for age
and height bears investigation.
The great increase in weight of
children is mainly on account of
the increase in size of the arms,
legs and trunk and this obvious
ly is due (o increase in size of the
bones and muscles.- Muscles that
have made up one-quarter of the
weight of a baby gradually in
crease until they make up two-
fifths of the entire weight.

At the launching of the battle

Francisco, he met Governor Nash
of Ohio and was with him good

became inoculated with poison

complications: died the following
year. But he had asked Geer to
come to Ohio! and participate in
the campaign;, in a personal let

went. Following, la part of what
Mr. Geer wrote about that trip in
his book: '
"Owing to the subsequent death
of the president (McKlnley), the
Ohio campaign was limited to two
weeks. My first date was at the
little city of Waverly, ... and
the time was equally divided be
tween Senator Mark Hanna and-
myself. I had never seen that dis

met on the platform a few min
utes before the speaking began,

was a decidedly favorable one. He

didate for reelection, and had
been endorsed by the republican
state convention and was stump
ing the state advocating the elec
tion of a legislature that would
be favorable to him. There was
no doubt of his reelection by the
popular vote, at least none to
those who saw the demonstration
of that day. - .

and me to spend the following
Sunday at his home In Cleveland,
which we would gladly have done,
bat that we desired to visit' the
Buffalo exposition and lt was lm
poslble to do so only on that day.
When I told the senator ! was
the cousin of Homer Davenport,
who cartooned him so unmerci
fully in the campaign of 1898. he
at once began making inquiries
about him and where he got his
artistic ability. He said he had
met Davenport several times and
really liked 'the fellow,' but added
that he didn't approve of his car
toon treatment of himself. I told
him I had never yet found a man
who could really enjoy a good
cartoon of himself, though every
body else might regard lt as a
work of art.
"He said that he never cared
'a peg' for Davenport's cartoons, 1
but that his wife hated that artist
'worse than snakes. He remarked
that he had instructed his secre
tary to save all the' cartoons of
himself that had appeared In the
papers, but that they were to he
kept from his wife, if possible.

who was last year (1910) defeat

"So far as X could see- there
was no difference between cam
paigning In Ohio and Oregon or
Washington or Idaho. ' My pre
vious experience served to illus
trate very forcibly the fact that
ours is a great country, and, what
is better, that we are essentially
one ; great people. An American
citizen- of Ohio has all the char
acteristics of the American cit
isen of Oregon, Maine or Flor
ida. This fact is more keenly
realized when, in campaigning in
states widely separated geograph
ically, one discovers the sameness
of the Issues involved."

Homer Davenport was not the
only great cartoonist of the Geer
family. (His mother was a daugh
ter of Ralph C. Geer, Waldo, hills
pioneer.) A cousin of Homer Dav
enport is Frank S. Bowers, who
has retired from being a cartoon
ist and iis a farmer, his place be
ing next east of the old Ralph
Geer home. '
Bowers was on the Hearst pa
pers during the time of the Span
ish-American war, and did a great
deal of good work. He was later
on. the Indianapolis News, where
he was in the thick of some of
the hottest fights ever pulled off
there, in mayoralty campaigns
Mr. Bowers might be drawing
down his 815,000 a year on one
of the great newspapers, or news
paper chains. But he found the
game was not worth the candle.
He was sacrificing his health; bad
he not left the hectic career he
would have sacrificed his life.

Mr, Bowers will tell you that,
just before he gave up that work,
he was accustomed to drive him
