CENTRAL POINT AMERICAN
Walter Frank was a risitor at our
office Tuesday and while here had
his name placed on the American
list.» Walter had two acres in the
north part o f town which he is im
proving by planting several varieties
o f trees and berries.
He spent a
number o f years mining in the north,
part o f the time on the Yukon river,
but prefers Southern Oregon to any
part o f the United States.
J. T. Fry and w ife drove to Trail,
Oregon, last Sunday to spend the day
at the home o f their son. Mr. Fry
reports pretty bad roads in some
places but had a pleasant time vis
iting among old friends.
E X O R B ITA N T INSURANCE
T A X A T IO N
Insurance company investments in
Oregon increased from $59,964,580
in 1922, to $76,759,300 in 1924.
The total receipts o f the state insur
ance department. $316,793 in 1921,
were $634,181 in 1924. The cost of
administration was $28,585 in 1921
and $28,747 in 1924.
Insurance con panies pay taxes
the same as any other property hold
ings. But it is difficult to defend
the additional tax o f more than 20
times the cost o f state insurance su
pervision, assessed against insurance
policies. This tax necessarily re-
quiresquires excessive policy rates.
Why shou'd insurance companies pay
a special tax equal to twenty times
the cost o f operating a state insur
ance department for the support of
which such special tax is levied.
This policy is followed in many
states, not because it is right or just,
but because it is an easy way to get
the money, and the general public
does not know that in addition to all
other taxes it is being “ soaked” this
additional sum as a tax on insurance
ed very well and many important
things were learned.
The total enrollment o f the C. P.
H. S. so far this year is one hun
dred. Out o f the 100, eight have
dropped out leaving 92. The sec
ond semester five new pupils came
into the school. One Junior, one
Sophomore, and three Freshmen.
The Central Point boys and girls
