Meeting the Warrant Problem
AFTER a week's turmoil the State of Oregon haa found
itself legally permitted to issue its warrants for pay
rolls and -supplies and to mark these warrants unpaid for
want of funds, bearing interest at five per cent from the
date they are stamped.
m .. Today state creditors and employes are scurrying
around trying to secure cash for these state obligations. They
will find merchants loathe to take them, not because the
warrants are not secure, but because the time of payment is
uncertain. Similarly banks here and throughout the state,
are not accepting warrants because banks must have their
securities with due dates so they can be assured of meeting
The Statesman is certain the state should not use this
warrant-stamping power as an easy, painless way of meet
ing the rightful claims of its workers and its other credit
ed for their money. Immediate efforts should be taken to
pay these warrants in cash for, at best, these warrants will
circulate slowly, and will make it difficult for creditors of
the state to conduct their affairs in normal fashion.
The state could get off the warrant basis at once if its
officials would arrange to do the following:
1. Secure a standstill agreement with the state highway
department on the $700,000 owed it from the general fund.
The commission has met its April 1 bond maturities.
2. Instead of seeking new and additional bank loans,
arrange with Portland banks a standstill arrangement on
. the $1,024,000 borrowed last October and as yet unpaid.
3. Secure a standstill arrangement with the state bonus
commission until next October on the $250,000 still owing
to it from the general fund.
With such arrangements negotiated the state can read
ily take up the $450,000 in outstanding general, fund war
rants. It also can meet its payrolls and bills payable in cash
throughout the spring and summer.
The general fund has $650,000 fr $800,000 coming in
April from insurance company fees. It has probably $200,
000 more due in April from excise, intangible and excise
taxes. Its residue after bond and interest payments April 1
trill be considerable and on or before June 1, 1933, the
state has due and payable from counties $1,987,919. No mat
ter how loud the counties will cry they will pay for the
state's claim is prior.
With these moneys employes and parties who sell goods
;to the state will not need to run hither and yon seeking a
market for unpaid bonds. Banks will not have to resort to
loans against payroll warrants for work done for the state.
- The normal channels of trade will go on.
If the state, on the other hand, adopts a policy of emit-
ing and stamping mere warrants this will be the result:
Portland banks will get their money back within 60 days
more and their present great liquidity will be increased. The
state highway commission will get its money and the treas-
; urer taking it from the general fund only to build up a bal
ance in the highway funds, not needed before July 1.
The last legislature made deep cuts in state expenses.
It provided new taxes sufficient to meet the 1933-1934 bud
get. If these taxes fail the state has a safeguard in falling
back on the property tax. By the end of 1934 the state's
deficit will be lower than it has been in a decade. The state s
finances are sound.
. : Bankers of Oregon, merchants who want business as
normal, state officials who do not wish a thousand and one
individuals to be the state s bankers, should work out the
program proposed herein, leaving warrant stamping as a
Iinal alternative, one which the state s present financial sit
nation does not necessitate.

The Federal Reserve System
rTlHE federal reserve system has been by no means the
X howling success that its proponents claimed it would
be. They said it would stop future panics; but things have
not worked that way. In many respects it has done a lot of
damage. Its juggling of interest rates in attempts to help
out European countries piled up troubles for itself. There
was some measure of truth in the charge that it pinched
down deflation in 1920. In 1927 it m&de interest rates easy
in order to help out foreign countries ; and that encouraged
the speculative debauch in Wall street.
iThe federal reserve also contributed toward injuring
small banks when it barred charges for exchange on out-of-town
checks. This used to be a source of legitimate revenue
to banks, and in the case of country banks; helped to carry
the overhead expense.
The tendency seems to be however toward more and
. more centralization. Soon we may have nothing but national
banks, all members of the federal reserve system. But the
system will have to be run better than it has been to make
the country; safe from its bankers.

" 'This name haa no transla

of the Rocky mountains differing
from those on the east in having
nereanary names to which no
particular meaning appears to be
attached and the origin of which
is in many instances forgotten.
"Franchere In 1811 states that
Caasino was related to Coalpo. a
Clatsop chief, but the relationship
is not made clear. Alexander
Henry states that Coalpo's wife, a
woman of high birth, was Caul
no's sister-in-law. This was pro
bably th wife who was a daugh

1824 aa 'taking a great deal of

In 1881 Samuel Parker, the mis

a man of talents, and his personal
appearance Is noble.' In 1841
Commander Wilkes recorded la
his narrative: 'Caseaove Is ... a
