Sept. 18, 1920 Continued


A referendum is being taken by the Chamber of Commerce to determine the attitude which the organization should take relative to the constitutional amendment fixing the rate of interest in the state of Oregon. This amendment will be voted upon at the regular election next November and the board of directors of the Chamber have put the question squarely up to the members if there should be an active campaign made against the measure.

The referendum ballots were mailed to the members last Tuesday afternoon and already more than one hundred of the ballots have been voted and returned to the tellers, who will count these votes immediately after eight o’clock next Monday evening at which time the voting privilege will close.

Members of the Chamber who have not already cast their ballot are urged to do so immediately so that there may be a fair proportion of the membership expressing an opinion. The twenty-five percent of the membership who have voted makes the result according to the by-laws, effective and the board will have to abide by the decision of the referendum.

A number of promising candidates for the football team have not yet entered the school, but are expected to within the next week or two.


Interest in the two special elections to be held September 18 and September 28, looking to the increasing of Ashland’s water supply by amending the city charter to privilege the council to issue bonds to the amount of $100,000, is sidetracking everything else, even politics, in Ashland this week, it is reported.
