STATE CHA-MBER OF COMMERCE
The Oregon State . Chamber of
Commerce, organized at Portland on
December 12, promises to become a
"Useful unit in the future welfare of
' the state. George Quayle, general
secretary ot the organization, Has
been busy the past few days getting
in touch with the secretaries of the
various chambers of commerce over
the state, and in a letter to these
secretaries he outlines the aims of
the statewide association as follows:
He assures us that the organiza
tion win nor oe controlled uy ron-
land, for the reason that but two of
the fifteen directors are Portland
men. Neither are the officers Port
land men,' with the' exception of one
rice president. It is non-political
and every county In the state is said
to be represented. Charles Hall, of
Marshfield, Is president of the or
ganization and F. S. Bramwell, of
Grants Pass, is one of the three vice
presidents. Mr. Quayle says of the
"It is formed for the purpose of
encouraging development ot the na-
tural resources of the State of Ore
gon, and the trade and commercial
intercourse between the different
parts ot this state and between this
state and contiguous territory, and
lso with foreign countries, and of
promoting cooperation between
chambers of commerce, commercial
Industrial, agricultural, and other or
sanitations, increasing their effici
ency and extending their usefulness.
It is intended to secure cooperate
.... - . i iijl-
action In advancing the common pur
poses of Its members, uniformity and
equity In business usages and laws
and proper consideration and concen
tration of opinion upon questions ef
fecting financial, commercial, agri
cultural, civic and Industrial inter
ests ot the state."
The next meeting of the chamber
will be held In Portland on January
11, that being the last day of the ir
rigation congress convention. '
BEGINNING TO DRIFT
With the halt in ship construction
thousands of men are pouring out of
the shipbuilding districts, from the
sawmills and the lumber camps. Al
ready many of these men are reach-
work. Thousands of employes were
thrown,' out of Jobs in the ""Pu get
Sound country, a great number . were
let out .in , the Columbia River dis
trict, while It is rumored that in the
vicinity of Oakland and San Fran
cisco from" 115,600 to25)00d men sud
While it la reported that the mi-
KINNEY & TRUAX GROCERY
i - . v v I -, QUALITY IR&T f J,
Jorlty ot these men "laid up for a
rainy day," there were ' thousands
who did not need the warning, con
sequently the signing ot the armis
tice and the sudden shutting down
of war Industries came as a dire
catastrophe to them. The easy
shifts and high wages disappeared
before their eyes like the little round
ball in the three shell game. And
now many ot them are already seek
ing some sort of a Job at "most any
old wage." A number of them have
passed through Grants Pass during
the past few days.
In view of this very condition, the
big reconstruction convention is to
be held at Portland on the 9th, 10th
and Ilth of this month. Not only
must the returning soldier be cared
for, but also that vast army ot work
men who have been turned out Into
a cold world, without a job and tar
less than ninety days from broke, by
the war department suddenly clamp
ing down the lid on western indus
tries. The reconstruction convention
will face a hard task. Let us hope
that they will quickly find the pro
per solution ot the problem.
STEAM ROLLER COMING
One . of the inconsistencies of Mr.
Gompers and his organizations is the
attitude of demanding the highest
wages and shortest hours in the
world and In the same breath advo
cating that American industries be
left unprotected and at the mercy ot
world competition which is not gov
erned by high wages and short hours.
Already the press dispatches show
that millions of dollars of orders
with American firms have been can
celled by South American countries
because we haven't the ships to de
liver goods and our freight rates are
f ; i. . '
China, now that the ship embargo
has been raised, is beginning to pour
Its beans and rice into this country.
The same will apply to sugar and
hundreds of other articles.
Call it tariff or protection ot in
dustry or anything you like, if Am
erican Industry is to maintain its
present scale of wages and hours,
protection from foreign competition
in some form must be evolved.
A too high cost of production,
however, even though protected, will
shut us out of foreign markets as
we cannot compete In price.
Artificial standards have been
raised in this country while we were
shut off from world competition but
the day is rapidly approaching when
we must get back to a normal basis
even if some rulings of wage fixing
boards and price fixing committees
have to give way.
The old law of supply and demand
will soon have it's steam roller at
work and it is no respecter ot man
made regulations and Mr. Gompers
and all his followers can't vary the
course or tne roller.
NOT WITH THE MUSIC
We have with us today, not only
the Bolshevik! and I. W. W., but
also the militant suffragist very
militant and they are putting in
over-time at Washington lampooning
"President Wilson has opposed
those wbo demand democracy for
this country. He is responsible for
the disfranchisement of millions of
Americans. We in America know
this. The world will find him out."
Suoh were the words inscribed on
a banner carried by the women.
Fairly good campaign fodder, ot Its
variety, but very untimely with the
present trapeze music. Europe Is
now the cynosure ot all eyes as most
of the stars of the three-ringed cir
cus are over there. '
i. . .
The Oregonlan lauds Senator
Chamberlain thusly, but even ut
that the Portland paper Is telling the
truth: "Senator Chamberlain, of
Oregon, was 65 years old yesterday.
It would appear to have been a day
ot felicitations, not only from his
personal friends, but from the party
which he has so specially dlstin-
gui8hed Dy.nIg continued successes In
. , ,.firiB, of nrHm. Mmn,.ten.
Mr. Chamberlain, after holding min
or offices In Oregon, has been twice
elected governor and twice elected
senator. Such a record by a mem
ber ot a minority party Is remark
able. Few others like it perhaps
nane can be cited anywhere."
A newspaper, appealing to the sol
diers and other men to return to the
farms, says: "The man who works
for wages is generally ready for the
scrap heap at the age of 40 or 45.
He Is less than 90 days from broke."
The' same might be said of many
men engaged In business. It's a cruel
world, unless you look at it from the
""ershlng for President" clubs are
being formed over the country. Much
worse clubs could, and probably will,
be formed before 1920.
A damphool Is one who will make
the mistake ot trying to round out
bis education at Berlin.
