A IMPORTANT ISSUE
In this Isaue The liulletln puMlsh?s' grtion and rural credits, I will say R
th miinmcnu of the G'.vern'r, At
torney General, State Treasurer and
Ststo Engineer settlnK forth their
vlows rewarding the proponed consti
tutional amendment and sutiseijuent
loKlHlatlon for state aid to Irrigation,
drainage, and rural credits.
This Is tho first expression of the
kind which has appeared, and we feel
rorttmnte In the opportunity to give
liulletln readers this Initial knowl
edge of what Oregonfs leading oftl
clala think on this Important nui.Jert.
No doubt the constitutional amend
ment and the proposed enactments
will forn the backbone of political
dobiito during the corning state cam
paign. So In this connection It Is
especially worth while to know the
vlewH of those whom ihe people have
elected to high olllce.
That there will l,e a hot fight on
the (mention Is assured. And that
not tlio least Interesting f enure Is ' Mr. Kay Intends to fight tho proposed
tho fact that the magazine now has a
bonn-fldo circulation of over 3,000
copies, ii h contrasted with about 500
eoploH ii few mouths ago. Not con
tent with this notable gain. Carl D.
Hhoumakur, the KtHle Ghihh Warden,
lina sot it in ii r I; of 10,000 by the e.id
of Ihn year.
Hvon If the warden falls far short
of that iittiiltiment. lie will havo thn
measures bard is iiKewiso certain.
Whatever the outcome and whntevor
the hopes and beliefs of this com
munity, It Is henlthily Interesting to
get the subject started now for dis
cussion and urguincnt.
