Bonds I
Voters tre urged to read Section 4 of the Housewives'
Council Constitutional Amendment authorizing the
State of Oregon to go into irrigation schemes and into
the business of manufacturing light and power.
"Rends of the State cf Oregon, not to exceed five per centum of
the assessed valuation of the state, may be issued and sold from
time to time to carry out the purpose of this Article and full faith
and credit of the State of Oregon is hereby pledged for the pay
ment of principal of said bonds as the same mature, and the in
terest accruing thereon as the same falls due."
Every voter should know that the assessed valuation
of Oregon is $1,058,880,736, and that the Pousewives'
Council "Water and Power" board could issue and sell
bonds $53,944,000. Your property would be a guaran
tee for the payment of this huge debt.
Oregon's total bonded debt, including that of all polit
ical subdivisions, is now more than $166,000,000. Us
State bonded iudebtedness alone per capita, $47,03 is
the highest in the Union.
As fast as this political board might retire bonds, it
would have the power to issue more; and as the as
sessed valuatiots increased the amount of bonds could
also increase.

Taxation, Capital and
the Oregon Farmer
Author of the DannU Resolution.
During the heat and excitement of political cam
paigns and the confusing statements that attend
them, we arc apt at times to forget hard economic
facts, and the bitter fruits of some pet "ism" that
look good in theory but do heavy damage in practice
Vnr this reason it is time to begin
telling a few plain truths about land
taxation, the incomes of our people,
corporations and industries, and
again bring to mind the fact that
capital does not need Oregon but
Oregon does need capital.
And the reason why we should con
tinue to remind ourselves and our
friends is because another effort is
beiner made to force a state tax in
come tax upon our people despite the fact that prac-"
tically the same tax cost many millions in capital
and improvements to Oregon before it was repealed
in 1924. We cannot expect a proved breeder of hard
times to bring good times, because it can't be done.
And here are a few of the reasons why:
In all of Oregon's 96,000 square miles there is an
'estimated population of only 825,000 people less
than 9 to the square mile. We have 55,157 farms
an average of one to every 15 people. We have only
2500 industries that employ live men or more an
average of one industry to every 330 people;
Out of Oregon's 825,000 people, 782,256 didn't have
net incomes big enough to file income tax returns.
Of the 45,5-15 who did one-half of them showed earn
ings under $3000 and only 311 had earnings in ex
cess of $10,000. Only one-fifth of Oregon's 5000 cor
porations made enough to file returns and of the
1073 reporting, 478 made less than $5000, and only
183 made in excess of $20,000.
Our farms and our industries are our two main
sources of new wealth. They both face hard prob
lems on account of scant and scattered population,
long hauls, competition insufficient capital and
heavy and ever-mounting taxes. If our farms are
to prosper they have to secure outside money for
loans and money to finance crops. If our indusries
are to develop they have to finance their purchases
and payrolls. Both have to have markets and that
means new people and more industries. i
That is what the Dennis resolution is designed to
do. It is an invitation for capital to come in and help
us all -out. We have to have money for farm loans
and no matter how pretty this talk sounds about a
state income tax we cannot escape the economic and
unalterable fact that new capital which we require
does not have to and will not come to Oregon unless
we make it advantageous for it to do so. ;
We must remember there are 120,000,000 people
in the United States. Of them one hundred and
nineteen million plus, live outside of Oregon. They
have plenty of need for the -same money in ctise we
of Oregon don't show that we really want it. We
tried it once and before the people repealed the
state income tax it cost us millions; drove indus
tries, payrolls and taxable wealth out of Oregon and
taxes still went up ! Every farmer who hacf to bor
maney knows what it did to him, too. !
No forward thinking and constructive ; citizen
wants that disaster to happen again.
Instead of making things hard foV everybody
farmer, merchant, industrial worker and citizens in
general we want to have a purely economic problem
taken out of politics. The way to do it is to vote no
against both the Grange ncome Tax Bill and Offset
Tax Bill and vote yes for the Dennis resolution. By
this means we guarantee to every citizen, industry,
and to capital that there will be no income tax be
fore 1940. It further guarantees to every! family
that they will not have to pay taxes on their savings
when their bread winner dies. It is a prosperity
making measure it is sound business policy and de
serves every progressive citizen's support. ;
Vote 306 X YES-Dcnnis Resolution.
329 X NO-OlTset Income Tax Bill.
Vote 335 X NO Grange Income Tax Bill.
