TOE BONUS MEASURE.
Of the five measures referred by
the legislature at its last session to
be decided at the special election on
'June 7th, three affect the constitu
tion.. The five measures are:
Enabling governor to veto emer
" gency clause without impairing re
maining sections of act; compulsory
inarriage examination and license
"bill; providing for lengthening legis
lative sessions and increasing com
pensation of legislators; qualifying
'women to sit as jurors; creating
world war veterans state aid fund
and providing choice of cash bonus
'of $15 a month or loans not to ex
The latter measure, known as the
Bonus .Measure, is the most import
ant of the five, and affects approxi
mately 34,000 Oregon men who bore
the brunt of battle.
This measure, providing for the
creation of a state aid fund, author
izes the state to isswe bonds to the
extent of three percent of the as
sessed valuation of all property to
raise money to be loaned in amounts
of not more than $4000, or paid as a
S15 for each month of act
ual service; and in no case is the
cash bonus to exceed $500 to each
It is conservatively estimated that
not more than ten percent of the en
listed men of Oregon would chooso
the cash bonus in lieu of tle loan,
which would be made by the state
at four percent interest.
The real cost to the state would
be the amount paid in cash bonus,
and the difference between four per
cent and normal interest rates; and
it is conceded that the money loaned
the service men and by them turned
into the industrial and development
channels of the state would add much
more to Oregon's wealth than the
comparatively small amount required
to offset the difference in the rate of
Provision is n.atlc that in event
Congress provides a national cash
bonus before the Oregon constitu
tional amendment becomes effective,
the state would pay no cash bonus.
From every angle the measure is
meritorious. It recognises the obli
gation the commonwealth owes its
soldiers, and its provisions drawn
on conservative lines should meet
with the approval of the taxpayer.
CHARITY FOR THE ERRING.
Germany's full and complete com
pliance with the reparations terms of
the allies should be followed by a cer
tain respect for her feelings not hith
erto observed by the people and
press of the United States. In other
words, there is no profit in probing
post-war sores so long as the Ger
man republic keeps its pledge to
make restitution. It is too much
perhaps to expect of France to for
give her ancient enemy the awful
ravages in the fair land of the tricol
or occasioned by a war as stupid as
it was bloody. But we on this sine
m.v Ln in mind the admirable
qualities of the German people and
attribute their gnat crime to the
character-marring effects of yeara of
diabolical and sinister propaganda.
At the same time we are not to sup
puse that the penalty exacted la un
just. The indemnity amounts to the
staggering sum of $300 per capita.
Yet the war debt of France it no less
than $1000 per capita, of Great Brit
tain $S50 and of the United States
$240. These huge burdens are the
direct result of Germany's desire to
dominate the world, and had ahc won
she would have exacted greater lumi
from the victims of her power than
she is now required to pay. The
point is that Germany In admitting
her guilt through bowing her head to
the hand of punishment, is entitled to
the grace of forgiveness. And it
should be remembered that in her
submission she settles the greatest
world problem of the day.
Scientists have now demonstrated
the actuality of the aura, but are
unable to materialize it as a pawna
ble asset in these times of uneasy
We're somehow expecting to hear
about King George, Lloyd George and
George Harvey eating off the same
Russian Red leaders are reported
to be falling out which is all well
enough if they don't fall out on us.
It will be well enough now to let
up on Germany but not to let Ger
many up as a military power.
A GOOD SHOWING.
It is evident that Umatilla county
Is passing with slight embarrassment
through the trying financial ordeal
incident to the post-war period of
readjustment. If the county U not
so "well off" as It might have been
had It aold all Its wheat at juit the
right time, it la nevertheless In no
danger of experiencing the parlous
times Incident to the genuine panics
of an unlamented past.
A comparison of the statements of
the banks of Umatilla county at re
cently published, shows on the whole
a satisfactory and healthy condition.
In moat Instances the figures Inspire
an encouraging outlook.
In particular, The First National
Hank of Athena is well to the front.
With but $17,000 rediscounts, no bills
payable and good, large rash re
serve, it' very probably has the moat
creditable showing of any bank in
All in all, the people of this sec
lion- with the prospects for a good
crop and a fair price combined with
the knowledge of the community's
financial strength have Just reason
for thankfulness, confidence and hope.
