In the matter of economy. President
Coolidg-e emphasized the necessity for
economy in the expenditure of the
people t money and pledged himself
to continue the path he had entered
upon when he became President,
r.an-iely that of saving the money of
President Coolidpe has been the
only President in the history of the
nation that forced a portion of the
taxes to be given back to the tax
payer, and he stated in terms which
could not be misunderstood that a
further icduction of taxes may be had
if the present plan of economy in

rate of income continues welcome

WOOL MARKET REMAINS STRONG
The wool market continue strong
with considerable active buying on
the part of manufacturers in the Kast.
The theory being that the re-elevtion
of Treaident Coohdge. which now
.eemt a certainty, will make for
higher rather than lower priced wool.
We have heard of no wool being
contracted! in Oregon for next year
delivery. It is true that rumor are
afloat that contracts have been writ
ten at 40c per pound, but having
traced a few of these, we are con
vinced that few, if any. contracts
have been drawn. It is likewise re
ported that contract have been of
fered growers in Montana, Idaho and
Wyoming at 10c per pound for li-5
wool. We are unable to confirm thi.
but l.ave no doubt that such offers
are being made in the States named,
A few odd lota of wool left in Ore
gon from li24 shearing are being
ragerly sought after at prices as high
as 43c per pound. We know of no

"In ome western states growers

Farmers and Manufacturers
AN EFFORT is being made to wreck Oregon's existing Workmen's Compensation Law thru
the initiation of the so-called Compulsory and Constitutional Amendment to the Work
men's Compensation Law. This amendment was initiated by a small group of professional agi
tators of Portland nd appears on Tuesday's ballot under Nos. 310 and 311.
This astounding measure boldly demands that Oregon's working people and her industries
shall surrender their basic American Rights of fair hearing and appeal to a jury. In its place it
creates a super-government of three men, with powers to force Oregon s farmers to contribute to
the state accident fund, and submit to the dictation of this super-commission which would have
FINAL authority, and from whose rulings our farmers, working people and industries would
have NO APPEAL. Furthermore it would practically WRECK the present good law, and nullify
the many years of earnest constructive endeavor.

Help defeat the Compulsory Amendment to the Workmen's Compensation Law
HERE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THIS REACTIONARY AMEND
Oregon's 47,000 farmers could be forced to come un
der the compensation law and would be compelled
to pay into the State Accident Fund and submit to
its arbirtary dictation.
A three-man political commission would be created
with legislative, judicial and executive powers, that
would be above the law answerable to no other
authority the only judge and jury of its own actions.
This finality of power would take from the working
men, farmers and industries their basic rights of ap
peal and of fair hearing before a.jury.
It could make its compensation awards to injured
men as little as it pleased, arbitrarily raise fanners'
and workmen's rates or refuse to extend medical treat
ment. No appeal to an American jury from such ac
tion could be taken by either.
It wulJ automatically create a state medical and hos
pital trust because the amendment forces the injured
man tu receive treatment from doctors at hospitals
of the commission's choosing, or go without such
It would wreck the present good compensation law,
which guarantees every working man specific com
pensation and proper care, when injured, replacing
this certain protection with the arbitrary rules of three
men, who could as easily be unfair as they could be
It would again mark the return of ambulance-chasing
and shyster lawyers, who prior to the operation of
the present compensation law, waxed fat on the mis
fortunes of the laboring man.
It would take from the state legislature all power to
correct any evils in the law. It would give politicians
such dangerous powers that conditions could easily
be made intolerable for our working people, our far
mers and our industries.
There is no need for the amendment. The present
law is a good law. Everybody knows that the rates
for compensation are now specifically fixed by law,
and unfair treatment can be dealt with by an appeal
to a jury. - '

From the novel by Grace H. Flandrau; a highly enter
raining treatment of a little social problem which touches
every man, woman and child in every community under

mood in which all of us find ourselves at
times and shows conclusively that, whether we will it or
not, we are all tightly bound by the bonds of convention
and that those bonds of convention are constantly
