Facts concerning industrial expan

they arrive here, instead of having

This, officers of the chamber
point out, is the first attempt by
the Italians now lift America to take
over the helpful functions .vhlch
certain American organizations
have been performing hitherto. The
I chamber of labor, it is- stated, was
organized to help Italians in this
country pass through the period of
adjustment in America, and to
promote among them higher stand
ards of living, wages, health and.
The chamber also receives news
from Italy, and disseminates it
among Italian resident here. Lo

Hof f Urges
State Treasurer Sug
gests Commission to
ments of Funds
The creation of a state bond
commission to consist of the gov-
errnor, state superintendent of
banks and the state treasurer to
supervise the investment of state
funds is recommended by State
Treasurer O. P. Hoff in his bien
nial report to the forthcoming leg
islature which was transmitted to
Governor Olcott today. . .
"It is politically impossible for
the state treasurer to make these
Investments without subjecting
himself to more or less criticism,"
Hoff's report reads. "Especially
will this be true In the future by
reason of the rapid increase of
these funds. Therefore it is my
recommendation that the law be
changed so, that the state treasurer
will not be required to carry the
entire burden in regard to invest
ing these funds."
Thinks Plan Sound.,
Commenting on his recommend
ation for the creation of a state
bond commisison Hoff declares:
"This suggestion I believe Is
sound and I believe these officials,
because of their positions and fa
miliarity with state affairs and
business condtiions would be emi
nently fitted to pass upon securities
for state investments."
Hoff also recommends In his re
port that the present law be so
changed as to require all munici
palities and school districts to send
a written notice of sales of bond
issues to the state treasurer.
"It is my opinion that with the
enactment of laws embodying these
two features in reference to the
purchase and sale-of bonds that the
state would be protected," the re
The state treasurer refers in his
report to securities now held by
the state as 'sound and high inter
est bearing securities."
"None of the interest is delin
quent upon any of the bonds held
by the state treasurer with the ex
ception of a few school districts
which at times are slow in making
remittances," the repprt states. '-On
every bond we have purcHased the
interest has been promptly paid
ana tne bonds are substantial i
Growth Demands Change.
The phenomena! growth of th
financial affairs of the state is
shown In the report In a compara
tice table which shows that re
ceipts of the state treasurer's office
for the biennium ending September
30, 1920, aggregated $39,406,026.18
fas against receipts of 120,133,-
970.04 for the preceding biennum.
"The volume. of business handled
during the last biennial period, as
shown by the receipts of the bien
nium, exceeds the receipts of any
preceding biennial period by over
nineteen million dollars, or ap
proximately 92 per cent," the re
port sets out. "The same condition
exists as to the disbursements
which, during the past biennial
period exceeded the disbursements
of any preceding biennial period by
over twenty-two million dollars, or
approximately 103 per cent.

Washington, Nov. 8. President
Wilson has begun work on his an

will be transmitted either on the

Tax Roll Lower
Showing a total valuation of
$37,174,360 for taxable property in
Marlon county, County Assessor
Ben F. West has completed a valu
ation survey preparatory to getting
out the 1920 tax roll.
The valuation for 1919. was $37,-
435, 5S0. The disereptancy of $2b0,-
190 in the two totals is accounted
for by the removal of automobiles
from the county tax rolls. In an-
icipation of the removal of motor
vehicles from county tax rolls, as
provided for by act of legislature,
1010 Assessor West has announced
that valuations would be increased
10 per cent in this county. Because
of this action, and due also to prop
erty increases in the county, the 1
valuation is nearly the same as In
1919 despite the loss of motor ve
hicle items estimated at ar trifle
more than $829,000,
