The Salem Dally Statesman dls
cusses the affairs of tlio state fair on
tcrtalningly, making some disclosures
of great Interest and heretofore tin
known to the general public, as fol
Is the Oregon stato fnlr open to prl
vato purclmso?
That is the question soon to be rals
ed If tho proceedings proposed by tho
stato board ot school land commls
slonors against the Oregon state board
of agriculture, usually known as tho
Mate fair board, are carried out.
In order that tho general public may
see what, tbeso proceedings are, and
may lend to, It Is necessary to give
here a brief resume of the history ot
late years of tho Oregon stato fair
In 1885 the old Oregon Agricultural
Society, tinder whose auspices a state
agricultural fair had been held for a
number of years, getting In a very bad
way financially, went before the lcgls
latlve assembly and secured an appro
priation from tbe general funds of the
stnte for the purpose of assisting in
Its maintenance.
Things not going prosperously with
the association apparently, It was de
cided to fund the outstanding Indent'
edncss of tbe old association, and a
general loan was made from tho
school fund of tho state, for this pur
pose. This fund was then and is now
under the charge of the state land
board noted above, and they loaned
tho society the sum of $11,000, at 8
per cent Interest for one year. This
was on December 29, 1894, and the
loan was really the outcome of tho
'hard times" period through which
everybody had just gone.
A year later tho board of managers
was notified that the amount loaned
was due, but as no funds wero In
sight with which to pay It back, the
matter rested. In statu quo. This con
dltlon ruled year after year until 1899,
when the board found Itself in pos
session of 'a depleted exchequer and
$7,000 of additional Indebtedness
hanging over It In the form of "war
rants on the treasury" Indorsed "not
paid for want of funds."
The legislature was again appealed
to In 1899, and an appropriation made
to pay the warrant Indebtedness, but
the stato required that the lauds bo
deeded to the stato of Oregon, which
was done. A now board of fair man
agers was then appointed known as
the Oregon state board of agricul
ture, of five members, and this same
organization still rules In the fair
The transfer of tho fair grounds to
tho state was made subject to tho
mortgage, so the condition Is now
that tho state of Oregon owes to tho
school trust fund the sum of $11,000,
with nearly $9,000 additional Interest.
The stato of Oregon, trustees, repre
sented by tho stato board of school
land commissioners has made various
demands on tbe state ot Oregon, as
represented by the state board of agri
culture for tho payment of tho above
sums without result. As Secretary
Wylie A. Moorcs said yesterday: "We
admit that the demands havo been
made on the stato board of agrlcul
turo for the payment of this sura, but
we do not admit having paid It, The
reason Is wo have no funds available
for this purpose and tho legislative
assembly should have mado tho appro
prlation to cover tho amounts Into
the school fund."
"The stato board of agriculture has
no funds nor income," suld Secretary
Mooros, "from any source except gate
receipts and concessions, and thoso
together with the annual apnronrla'
tlon are necessary for tho support of
the fair. Tho $10,000 appropriation
can oo used lor no other nurnoso CX'
copt tho payment of premiums, and
tho other revenues are necessary for
the payment of expenses. Thus you
seo why nothing has been dono in
this matter. The land belongs to the
state and the stato owes the money,
ana except a specific annronrlation
be made for Its payment, I don't, see
now u can no aone."
Now the stato land board has In
structed the attorney general to In
vestlgato tho matter and seo if the
hoard can foreclose tho mortgage. At'
torney General Crawford said yester
day that ho thought proceedings would
iiKely bo commenced soon, and of
course, under such proceedings, un
less tho legislature should sten in and
appropriate money for tho purpose of
uuying tho lands and paying the mort
gage, tho property would havo to go
to mo niguest bidder. It Is admitted
that if tho stato could buy tho land for
a valuation In excess of the amount
of the mortgago It could pay the
If the school board should take, thn
lands In, it would have to do so for
the face of the mortgage, which Is
more or less $20,000 now. Tho lands,
which contain nbout 160 acres, are
easily worth thirty to thirty-five thous-
ana aouars, so Salem's citizens can
seo what a menace this will be to tho
stato fair. Tho stato could not buy
the property from the general or stato
fair fund .without further Instruction
from the legislative assembly, and a
sale would mean that It would go to
private parties.
Is tbls tho first step toward moving
the stato fair to Guild's lako?
