It is quite probable that Louis W.
Seggel will be selected as captain of
K company, National Guard of Ore
gon, at a meeting of the boys in the
armory tonight. Mr. Seggel is con
sidered extremely well qualified for
the place. He is an Oregon Agricu
i. i si II
mirai iiege man, served overseas
with the rank of second .lieutenant,
and is well versed in drill work. He
is engaged in farming, having pur
chased the Joe Hubbard farm south
of town a few months ago.
The selection of a captain to suc
ceed C. L. Stidd has been occupying
the attention of the members of K
company for the past few weeks.
Neither Ira D Mix, first lieutenant,
nor" Frank E. Dickson, second lieu
tenant, would accept the place on ac
count of private matters interfering
with doing full justice to the com
pany. While, of course, the, selection
of a captain rests entirely with the
members, it is almost certain that it
will be tendered to Mr. Seggel.
Adjutant General White is to
here at the- quarterly drill and
spection tonight and he will be
guest of honor at a luncheon to
given at Hotel Beaver at 6:30 by the
Retail Merchants' association.

"The adoption of the five per cent
interest amendment-will place a
stone wall around Oregon which wijl
completely isolate the.btate from the
balance of the country in a financial
sense," declared Cyrus A. .Woodworth
of Portland, in an address in the op
era house Monday night, held for the
purpose of a discussion of this meas
ure and others to appear on the No
vember ballot.
Only a, few attended the meeting.
D, E. Fletcher presided as chairman
and the speakers were . Mr. Wood
worth, who is an attache of the Ladd
& Tilton Bank, Portland, and Eugene
A. Smith, Portland labor leader and
a. member of the house of the last
legislature. Mr. Woodworth confined
his address to the interest , amend
ment and Mr. Smith dwelled ' upon
the marketing measure.
Mr. Woodworth desired it to be
understood that the adoption of the
interest amendment will not put the
btftnks of the tetate out of business.
They will simply make their loans in
o'ther states, and under present con
ditions they can easily find a market
tor all the money they have. While
on the other hand, the borrower
will be the one who will have to suf
fer. Unable to secure money at the
prevailing rate of five percent, the
business man, the person . with the
mortgaged home, would either have
to resort to the practice of usury
with all its attendant ills, or close up
ghop, or le$ h mortgage be fore
closed. Mr. Woodworth reiterated what is
quite, generally understood, interest
rates are governed by supply and de
mand, the same as any other com
modity. To attempt to legislate
tha't'five percent shall be the maxi
mum rate would simply result in an
absolutely barren , money market.
Oregon,, in common with other un
developed western states, requires
outside capital and will continue to
do so for years tolcome. It's a fore
gone conclusion that a five percent
market here is not J going to attract
money when the market in adjoin
ing states ,ia 8 and 10
, The only way to prevent an at
tempt to repeat feuch vicious legis
lation is for the voters to not only kill
this proposed amendment but to bury
it so deep that it will not come to
life again. -
Marketing Bill Advocated
"The producer receives but 27 per
cent of the price of farm products
paid by the consumer," said Eugene
A. Smith, who spoke in the interest of
the marketing measure. Mr. Smith
handled his 'subject interestingly and
comprehensively. "The real , pur
pose of the marketing bill is the elim
ination of the non-essential middle
man, and by the establishment , of
co-operative selling organizations
give the farmer more for his products
and at the same time reduce the cost
to the consumer.
