Inquiry on Wealth
ENATOR McNARY blocked consideration of LaFollette's
resolution calling on the department of commerce to
make a report on the distribution of wealth. McNary's ob
jection was not personal, he stated, but due to his feeling
the matter should go over under the rules to another day.
- We should like to see such an investigation made. There
is much loose talk about how wealth is distributed, but no
one can give definite proof of his assertions or quote any
dependable authority. For instance the claim is often broad
cast that some 5 per cent of the people own 80 of the
wealth of the country. We do not believe these figures would
be sustained under an impartial investigation.
The wealth of the country is in its farms, its factories,
its railroads, its mercantile establishments, its homes and
apartments. The tendency in late years has been for most
enterprises to take corporate form and for the bonds and
Btocks representing ownership equities to be widely distrib
uted. Thus the railroad bonds are held chiefly by savings
banks and insurance companies. But these are the savings
not of just a few individuals but of the masses of the people.
Our only hope is, that if such an investigation is or
dered it moves more swiftly and more satisfactorily than the
one ordered on the resolution of LaFollette, pere, for valua
tion of the railroads. The elder LaFollette got congress to
have the interstate commerce commission evaluate the rail
roads. He said it would cost a million or so and wouid reduce
the valuation of the roads decidedly and thus permit lower
rates. The commission has been working on the job for about
20 years and it isn t finished yet.
The cost has run into tens of millions. The basis for val
nation has not even been finally adjudicated yet. And now
congress is about to pass a new rule for rate-making under
which valuations will be of no ponsemience. as in truth com-

Days of old Douglas:
Rose was a sincere booster for
his town. He donated three acres
of land and $1000 for the court
house. He gave the sites for school
houses and churches, and contri
buted 11400 toward the cost or
construction of the first public
school building.
The first clapboard shanty of
Aaron Rose was located at about
tbe center of the present city. He
later built a nice residence in the
southern part of the town, as the
writer remembers It, and lived
there to a good old age. He was
from Michigan, and came to south
ern Oregon by way of California.
Rufus Mallory, who taught
school at Roseburg and read law
there, and married Rose's daugh
ter Lucy, represented Oregon in
the lower house of congress from
18S7 to 1869. He came to Salem
and was a leading lawyer here.

listed the law firm of Mallory A

(The northwest corner, where the
Catlin building Is now, with the
Hartman store in the first floor
corner.) The Mallory residence
was given also as "corner Liberty

prominent in practice here for
many years thereafter.

Letters from
Statesman Readers
It's been a hard season on congressmen. Ruth Bryan
Owen has been defeated ; and early reports were that Gilbert
Haugen of Iowa, one of the oldest in the congress, was run
ning behind his younger opponent. We have not seen the
final returns. It might be better for the country if the mem
bers of the lower house had a four year term and were chos
en at the same election as the president. Party control would
then be more firm for the whole period and perhaps an ad
ministration could really administer. We have not had an
effective administration in this country since President
Wilson s first term.

Not since 19S0 has there been such an eruption of
orange plates on the highways of the state. Some are decrep

accoutrements of housekeeping show the families are out
hunting new locations. Others are fine new cars, bearing the
first of the tourist army. Schools are closing, and the Pacific
highway becomes a corridor of travel. Better weather lures
folk to the roads; and whether they are bond or free they
seek the allurement or the profit from this evergreen land.

children in the
South had this
disease, and
though the dis
ease is not as
nrevalent as formerly, a recent
publication announces that hook
worm victims are still to be found
in some States. -
Hookworm is caused by small

of the individual, before they aro

accomplish this, they found it

"Uneinaria Americana" is the
sdentifie name of the worm that
buses this disease. It is often
referred to as the "germ of laxi-
ness," because its victims have no
"pep1 or strength. They show
definite signs of backwardness and
have low resistance to disease.
At first they complain of minor
stomach disturbances. These symp
toms disappear upon the taking of
food. There is a yearning for odd
articles of diet, such as clay, dirt,
resin, chalk and hair, because eat
ing these substances gives relief
and comfort.
The hookworm sufferer has a

dernourished, complains of dizxi

remedy, and often just a few doses

Dear Sir:
One haa only to make a trio el
ther north or south on our high
ways to see how many machines
are licensed with other than Ore
gon plates.
What is the answer to this? Is
it that there are so many outside
machines traveling Oregon roads
or is it that owners are evading
the high license fee that prevails
In Oregon?
On a recent trip to Portland
the writer counted more machines
with either California or Wash
ington plates on thanhero were
Oregon and It does not seem pos
sible that this condition could pre
vail unless many of these ma
chines are evading the getting of
licenses for thli state. All anyone
has to do Is to check the cars that
stand on our streets in Salem or
any other city and find that there
are thousands that are living right
here, or in other cities, with plates
from some other states while we
that have gotten our licensee for
Oregon are supporting the High
way Departments.
We hear arguments regarding
the lowering of the license fee In
this state but It will never be done
unless there is a more careful
check made on the many machines
that are now operating In the
state with, other than Oregon
Plates. Surely the Highway and
local police could make a more
careful check and inalst that these
owners are forced to do as others.

She thrilled to see her little boy's

dressing room and admired her in
her gown of frost and Stardust.
"You look just like a fairy prin

A rather made-up princess," she
told him, laughing at her reflection
in the brightly illumined mirrors.
But she did look like a child's

white of the gown, her black hair

shy, but not too much Impressed
with all the show, the unfamiliar
surroundings, the little group of
admirers who waited outside.

and crying, a little hysterical at the
thought of having him here, in the

She scanned his weatherbeaten
face anxiously. He hadnt changed

told her, holding her off at arm's

"Dad, you could have had the

Now, dont you go throwing
your money away. You save your
money, Lily Lou! I didn t mind the
two dollars. Didnt I say it was

She looked at him. His old, shiny
suit, his carefully combed hair, the
collar that was too large, and
frayed along the edges. Her heart
was bursting.
