WHY DESTROY the INDUSTRIAL

That's what the so-called "Water Front" bills, Num

Why make it impossible to build saw nulls or any
other industrial, labor producing plants on the rivers and
bays of Oregon?
That's what the passage of these bills will do.
Why cripple the development of our great timber re
sources; why cripple all future manufacturing in Oregon?
That's what will take place if the people vote "yes"
on Numbers 328 and 330.
Why lock up the thousands of acres of over-flow lands bordering upon navi
gable waters of the State and its miles of water front for the benefit of "future
generations;" why not let the present generation have some of the benefit from the
use of these lands?
Industries of all kinds will be driven from Oregon and intending investors
will turn their backs upon the State if these so-called "Water Front" bills become
laws. That is why every man, woman and child in Oregon will be adversely affected
if these bills are passed by the people in November.
Oregon needs outside capital to develop its great natural resources but
we will drive it away if we pass Numbers 328 and 330 on the ballot at the November
If these so-called "Water Front" bills are passed by the people, a vast amount
of property will be withdrawn from taxation in this state and this great burden will
be thrown upon the rest of the taxable property, resulting in a heavy increas in
I hese bills are vicious; they are destructive of the very beat interests of
State; they ought never to became laws.
The way to defeat them is to vote "NO" 329 and 331.
