on the military barracks by tha Sinn

PORTLAND, Sept. 29. Hogs low
er, $18.60 and $17; eggs, firm; othor
Singhalese of Ceylon koep Dudd
ha's tooth In a rich shrine on Adam's
Thern In a measure on tho ballot In
Oregon limiting Interest rate In Ore
gon on borrowed monoy to 6 per cent.
Tho danger In tho bill Is that people
desirous of securing 6 per cent monoy
may got tho Impression that they will
be ablo to socuru loans at thla low
rato If tho bill carries.
If 6 per cent money woro poislblo
In Oregon, tho mcaiuro would bo
fine; but 6 per cunt monoy Is not
possible. Tho prlvato citlzcp who
ha monoy to loan would not put his
money out on note or mortgages at
D per cent when ho could get good
securities that pay lx and up or lend
hi money In other state at eight.
Ho would cither Invest In bond of
toinu sort or lend hi money In some
other stalo. To lend hi money In
another state might causo a man In
possession ot surplus money to movo
out of Oregon and In that way leave
the stato without surplus monoy In
tha hand of prlvato Individuals.
Many people of the stato keep sav
ings In tho banks and get ajiout 4
per cent Interest. This money Is put
out by the bank among people who
need working capital. Tho usual
rata I 8 per cent. It Is suro that tho
banks could not pay present ratea lor
saving and put the monoy out at 6
per cont. Tho bank must have
monoy to cover running expense.
Then if the bangs could not lend
money for 6 per cent, what would
happen? Tho merchant or tho atock
man who borrows money for operat
ing expenses would either have to
reduce hi business operations to suit
tho amount ot cash or find some way
ot getting the money. About the
first noticeable result would be the
springing up of brokerage businesses
In Oregon. The man who wanted
monoy would make nolea arid sell
thorn through the broker. The bank
could buy the note at s discount and
In that way get a living rato of Inter
est. No doubt Interest would rango
around lu to 12 per cent.
There are lew active men who
would not like to borrow money
It they had plenty ot cheap capital
The merchant would like to pay for
hla fall atock of merchandise with 5
per cont money and when his stock Is
sold pay tho money back. The stock
man would liko to have 6 per cent
money at times when his herd is ab
sorbing moro cash than It Is bringing
In. Hut the old way ot lotting com
petition settle the matter ot ratea la
1ho best way. It some man haa more
money than ho can lond at 8 per cont,
ho might let It out for lei. Uut
Mhcn Oregon tries to force money'
lenders to lond money tor less than
tho market valuo of monoy, a moss
will ba mado of It. Tho only kind of
people needed In Oregon nro thoBO
"I CANNOT SING

Canning of fruits and vegetables la
ono of the projects In the county
club work. Miss Virgil has trained
three teams and planned on giving s
demonstration at the county fair last
Frldsy, but owing to tho bad weather
the fair demonstration waa given up
and held at Mis Virgil's home econ
omics department at the Con .al
school Friday evening where I'lss
Cowglll, state leader ot girls' -iub
work, decided In favor of the t 'roe
girls, whoso name appear.
Considerable interest Is 1 ing

first time Klamath county has en

friends and teachon. v U ho - tho

Maeiy a large Industry locates
where It can get money lor opera
tions. It s $10,000,000 manufactur
ing concern came to Klamath Falls to
locate, one of the tint things done
would be to" call on the bank to see
If money could be borrowed In suf
ficient quantities to carry on the
buslnoss. When It waa learned that
the Klamath Falls banka could not
lend money by the millions, the man
ufacturing concern would aeek an
other location. So It may be seen
that such lw would ran the bor
rowers and the lendera out of Oregon
and when they were gone the other
people ot the state would follow
them. It would Injure the state less
to pais s law fixing the maximum
prlce.t potatoes at one cent a pound
Such s law might atop the production
ot potatoea here but the good spud
would decorato Oregon tables Just
tho aamo as long as Oregon people
had the money to buy tho products
ot other states.

A conference waa "held test night
between the boss barbers and repre
sentatives ot Barbers' Union 841 to
consider a proposition laid before tha
ownera to close local shops thirty
minutes earlier. The question was
considered from -all angles and a
lengthy discussion ensued.
The question ot whether the new

on the public, and possibly entail
financial loss upon proprietors and
