f Public Interest and the Railroads
WHETHER it knows it or not Marion .county and the
state of Oregon are in the railroad business. We are
proprietors in the sense that we share in the revenues with
out putting up any money for investment or for running ex
penses. Moreover we get our share even if the stockholders
. get nothing.The public's split is called a tax, the share the
stockholders get is called a dividend. This year it is probable
that the only road operating in Oregon which will keep up
r Considering the fact then'that this county and state are
through collection of taxes vitally interested in the fortunes
of the; railroads the report of the Southern Pacific company
which, Is one of the heaviest taxpayers here is of importance
to the general public as well as to the employes and invest
ors. Lj ' ' , , . ,
The 1931 report for this road. shows that the business de
pressimfhas rSaWlTeavy inroads on its income and reduced
its profits nearly to the vanishing point. Dividends for the
last year were paid out of surplus of prior years; and this
year the old S. P. which paid 6 annually since 1907 will
pay no dividends. Operating results the first four months of
the year have been even poorer tnan in iyi.
Railway operating revenues -for the road were down 23
and net revenue from railway operations down Zi. The net
income after interest, rent3 and taxes was oaly $7,138,372, a
decline of 77. The total taxes paid by the system anoTof
affiliated companies was $19,204,782. The dividends paid
last year were twenty and a half millions, but they were not
earned. Such a vast sum levied on the railroads and through
them on the shippers gives the public a tremendous stake in
the railroad business.
Now, through stoppage of dividends the share for the
stockholders is gone. The pertinent question to the public is,
how long can the roads continue the burden of taxation? Yet
the public continues to tax itself and the railroads to build
roads for competing forms of transportation which pay
scant taxes into the public treasuries. Even if there is a re
sumption of business the situation of the railroads is still un
certain because of unrestricted competition which they face.
-The public is just letting matters drift; but it. takes no long
look ahead to scent trouble. What if the railroads become un
able to pay the taxes imposed upon them? That will create
a serious condition in cities and school districts particularly.
The public will not worry much about the stockholder whose
dividend is cut off; but it will squirm uneasily if its prin
cipal taxpayer turns up its toes.
It is not difficult to foresee a time when the financial
difficulties of the railroads may result in depositing them on
the doorstep of government, 'f or better or for worse" ; and
wartime experience showed it was decidedly for the worse.
Birth Control Legislation
THE battle over birth control legislation is on in congress.
Mrs. Margaret Sanger wants congress to pass a bill
which would permit dissemination of such information by
physicians. The bill is favored by some and opposed by oth
ers. What a foolish argument! Both the information and the
devices are in general distribution ; so the argument is large
ly academic. The standard women's magazines are advertis
ing contraceptives in a phrasing only thinly veiled. The fact
Is the fact and congress might as well recognize it instead of
maintaining the present statute which is quite futile.

Several historians say Webley
Hauxhurst built the first grist
mill In the Willamette valley
and that would necessarily be the
first one "la the present Oregon."
It is pretty well established that
the mill built by Hauxhurst was
located on the stream that runs
to the north of the Wheatland
terry road, near where it branches
ot: from the river highway, about
a mile north of the first log
houses built at the old mission.
At least one historical writer says
the mill built by Hauxhurst was
erected In 1834. It Is not likely
that the date was that early
though It la possible; towards the
end ot that year.

came to close up the affairs of
the old mission, after the depar
ture of Jason Lee, had a good
deal to say of Webley Hauxhurst
in the written records he made.
He was frequently entertained at
the Hauxhurst home, then on Mill

It is generally conceded that
he was the McKay who built the
grist mill that was at or near
Champoeg. If so, it is evident that
he did not build it at as early a
date as the one constructed for
the mission by Webley Haux
hurst. Jeaa B. D. McKay was well
knowa to all the original arrivals
in the country after 1831. He

all Oregoa pioneers. He had spent
some time, on his way out, at the
Whitman mission, and Narclssa
Whitman, after her visit In 1843
to the Methodist mission families
ia and around the site of Salem,
la writing to some of them from
her home at WaUIatpu, spoke
familiarly of Moss and his affairs,
showing interest ia his welfare,
and indicating that he had con

him. on Wallace prairie, at The
