building bill has become a necessity. Secretary McAdoo

As a matter of fact most of these companies are not
taxpayers at all. They are tax gatherers from other
Iop!e, assembling the money for the state, city or county,
and turning it over to the proper officials. That is all
they do in the way cf paying taxes as a general thing.
The Southern Pacific really pays taxes, on its lands
(when it pays) but on its road bed, rolling stock and
material it pays not a cent. Neither does the Oregon
Electric, the Portland Railway, Light & Power Company,1
or the Salem Water Company. We mention these because
