FEINTS ITS VIEWS
If the State Development Lengua
wants to do the very rt thing
possible for the state at this par
ticiilar time it ahould apply the jit
jitau to the Southern Pacific and
other lins in Orgori in working
the roads over into a pacific agree
ment to furnifh all newcomers and
visitors during the fair wit.h chenp
rates ti all parts of the state with
stopover privileges so that Oregon
will he given the opportunity tha
railroads have claimed we should
have, viz, a chance to show the
people that our claims as to natur
al resources and opportunities aro
as they haye been represented.
Oregon's chief need for years has
beem immigration. Ycu can't rua
a 100 horsepower machine with a
tin horee power boiler, neither can
you conduct a 5,000,000 etate with
a 500,000 population. If Oregon
ia really in earnest about doubling
her population doubling her capita
al, doubling her manufactures and
all other industries, the process by
which it may be dne is right at
band. If the state i goes to sleep
with a fair on its bands, the lotion
that revived Rip Van Winkle
would never arouse us from a per
petual Bleep. Eugene Register.
BOW ATTORXEY GENERAL
EARNS HIS SALARY
A new corporation that has pre
sented articles to be filed in the
state Department at Salem has
been passed upon by Attorney Gen
The name of this new corporation
ia the American Birth Insurance
company, but its objects are just
the opposite of what one would
naturally conclude from the nature
of the title, as, instead of insuring
against accident or death in child
birth, the company contracts to
pay stipulated sums, ranging from
$200 to $500, in the" event " of the
birth of a "li ving. breathing child "
to the poicy hoder, The amounts
to be paid are conditioned upon the
number of" monthly assessments
paid by the policy holder to the
date of the birth, ranging in periods
ot from ten to eighteen months
after taking out the policy. An
other peculiar feature of the con
cern, which served to make the
classification more difficult, is that
no person is eligible to hold a
policy unless they be t member of
the American Parents' Educational
association. . . 4
