CORNELIUS 0. BjEEKMAN
ALL Oregon mourns today tho loss of Jackson bounty's
most influential and best beloved pioneer, Cornelius
0. Bookman, who recently passed peacefully away nt tho
age oC87, after a life of usefulness and whose remains wore,
interred today at Jacksonville, city of his adoption, where
for sixty-three years he has made his home.
An unusual and picturesque character, Mr. Bookman
certainly deserves a niche in Oregon's, hall of fame. Rugged
honesty, cautiousness, frugality, simplicity and unostenta
tious charity were the characteristics that endeared this
true gentleman of the old
of Oregonians and secured mm wealth, honor and uni
3n a long and busy life, beginning with the turbulanee
of tho gold rush of the early '50 's, and the Indian wars
following, through man' decades, tho sterling qualities, the
unquestioned integrity, tho financial acumen of tho
pioneer banker made him invaluable to his community,
though he lacked the initiative of the creator of industry.
Of the many millions of dollars entrusted to his enre,
jMt. Boekman always rendered full account, lie never lost
anyone a penny, mid never wronged a human being, while
he befriended" thousands, though ho never heralded his
benefactions. The deserving unfortunate never appealed
in vain to this true Christian. Every dollar that he made
was honestly nuwle.
The Bookman bank was unique among the banks of the
nation. It was not operated for profit, but for the con
venience of the public. Depositors frequently received
the same money they deposited, lie did not care for check
ing accounts, but his institution from the day of its start
until his death was the strong box for the community.
Panics might come and go; he always had a hundred per
cent of his deposits on hand, and many a time helped more
modem banks weather the storm. He would risk his own
money, but never the money of others,
Ainost useful citizen, 3fr. Beekman shrugged no duly
to the commonwealth, and for half a century.served upon
the school board and in minor offices. Tn 1878, as repub
lican candidate for governor, he was counted out by forty
one votes. He did much to forward the cause of education,
both locally and in the state, and the Beekman fund still
enables deserving students at the state university to secure
education. His church benefactions were numerous, and
to the dav of his death he maintained the church he wor
Though his life work was
called him home, there is no one in southern Oregon whoso
loss is more keenly felt or whose going causes more regret.
SOMETHING TO BE THANKFUL FOR
IN the March issue of the Metropolitan, Theodore Roose
velt has an article censuring the "Wilson administration
for not going to war with Mexico and pacifying the coiui
try. He views the administration's course with burning
cheeks of shame and can hardly withhold his indignation.
Mr. Roosevelt is built along the same lines as the Ger
man kaiser, who would force his own brand of civilization
upon all the world. At heart he is a militarist and a be
liever in the feudal and futile glory of force.
Our strenuous ex-president loses sight of the fact that
tills is a democracy based upon the just consent of the
governed, and it is no province of the republic to exert its
superior force by invading weaker neighbors and forcing
them to adopt an alien civilization. Mexico must work out
its own salvation, as all nations that amount to anything
have had to do, and evolve its own government. Every
country has had to pass through its civil wars before the
various factions, tribes and nationalities became fused into
an homogeneous nation.
Incidentally the country can be thankful that Roose
velt is not president. Long ago we would have been en
gaged in a costly and bloody war with Mexico. "With the
war spirit thereby created, it would be next to impossible,
with a hot-headed militarist at the helm, to keep out of the
Europe is fast relapsing into barbarism. Attilla tho
nun had nothing on the European belligerents as unscrup
ulous destroyers of civilization. No rule of civilized war
fare is the least respected. Even the ships of neutral
nations carrying food supplies are ruthlessly torpedoed by
the Germans orseized by the British. Under such condi
tions only the calm patience and forbearance and poise of
"Woodrow Wilson can keep the nation out of tho relapse to
"Thank God for "Wilson," and also thank God that
Roosevelt is not president.
Who Pays for
"The man who does not advertise
is the man who pays tho tost of the
other fellow's advertising," was tho
epigram evolved by C. F. Berg, a
Portland merchant, In a recent ad
dress before the class in advertising
at tho University of Oregon.
. "Consumers read the costly full
page ads. of great national advertis
ing campaigns and think they pay
the ultimato cob.," said Mr. Berg.
"But they don't. Neither does the
manufacturer, who can not decreaso
the quality 0f his article or make it
cost moro to the buyer than a rival
article. Neither does tho Jobber or
tho retailer pay the cost; their profits
"The successful firm's advertising
Is bought and paid for by tho firms
that are less successful.
"Take ten stores, each doing $100
a day business, each with overhead
expenso of 25 per cent of goods sold,
and each with 25 por cent profit. Ono
of the ton owners sets asido 10 per
cent of his sales receipts for adver
tising and doubles his sales. Ho thus
reduces liU ovvrliom" expense to ViVi

per cent and his advertising expenso
to flvo per cent. Ills profits, accord
ingly, aro increased to 37 per
cent, less the flvo per cent advertis
ing expense, or seven and ono-half
por cont more than they wore in the
beginning. His additional sales to a
great extent mean correspondingly
decreased sales among the romainlng
nine owners; they havo paid his ad
vertising bill, Increased their over
head proportionately and lessened
their profits proportionately,"
Mr. Berg described the benefits
brought to farmers and rural resi
dents by advertising. "Millions of
dollars in labor-saving devices are
annually sold to farmers through the
press." ho said.
"When an auto has to ascend a hill,
you don't pinch off the gas to save
money; you turn on moro gas. Now,
business Is all uphill; thore are no
level grades, Advertising Is tho gaso
line of business. Use It with Judg
ment, but do not try to make your
saving on it.
