Duties of tbe First Slate Lrc!
The first Legislature under a State '
Government will have many and im-'
portant duties to perform. The Con
stitution provides only for biennial ses '
slons of tho Legislature; and the de-
ranged state of our Territorial laws will
provijioni oi mo uonstitution. ibe

peopie nen mey snail meet, is to en "
act such laws as will secure free suf
frage and regulate elections prohibit
ing all undue Influences, and punishing
with suitable penalties nil briberies and
any other improper efforts to iufluence
Article 4, section 22, of the Constl
tution provides that, "No act shall
ever be revised or amended by mere
reference to its title, but the act revised
or section amended shall be set forth
and published at full length." This
will require great care on the part ol
tho LegUIstors, to prepare the present
territorial laws to conform to the Con
stitution so as to make them effectual
The Constitution both wisely and
justly prohibits special legislation to a
ronsldernblo extent. This is as il

local prejudices and sectional strife.
It becomes the duty of the Lcgitla
tare, ct the earliest possible period, to
proTide for and ettabliih an uniform
system of common schools. This is
an all important matter, not only to the
adult inhabitants of the State, at the
present time, bat more important to the
, youth and growing population, and,
". "" fo I!'' and stand
ing of our State. Congress has, and
will continue, without doubt, to be lib-
'oral, donating land Tor common schools
and Unirersity purposes. Then lot the
' first Legislature examine well and adopt
a good common school system.
Thero is only one other subject that
space and opportunity permits us tu
refer to at present, and that Is the sob
ject of taxation. This is all-important,
for, without a just, fair and proper sys
tem of taxation, our young Stato, with
lts"present and prospective population
for several years, must be necessarily
burlhcncd with high taxos. It is not
our objsct to embarrass any subject, or
by rcferenco to it to allow any miscon
struction of our position. Although
we admit that our nresent population'1
docs not exceed that ratio of apportion
ment that will entitle us to one repre
sentative in Congross, yet we claim
that, for the purpose of taxation, there
is no community in proportion to num
bers that is better able to pay a rea
sonable tax than are tho citizens of(
Oregon. It should bo the object of all
good men, and moro particularly the '
representatives of the people, to pro
vide, at an early period, for a gradation '
for the rcductiou of the taxes that will
be necessary for the support of our
'present economical Stato Government,,
To do this. lit m rernmmnnrt in tlio'
first Legislature of tbe State of Oregon j
to memorialize Congress, earnestly and
fairly setting forth tho fact, asking that
for Oregon which has been granted to
the States of irgima, Mississippi, Loo
isiana, Texas, California and a number
of other States, that is, granting to the
State tbe swamp and mountain lands
within its limits. Can any reasonable
man doubt for a moment about Con
grcis donating to the State of Oregon
the mountains within tbe limits of the
State t We think not When once
eenred to the State, let tbe Legislature
provide for tuo disposal of tho lands,
placing the proceeds thereof In the
' I State Treasury, to be applied as tbe
Legislature my direct, and thereby
disposing of large tracts of mountain
lands at almost any price so as to place
it in the hands of individuals, so that

The foregoing are only a few hasty
suggestions, for the purpose of bringing
some of the important questions to be
acted upon, before the people ; and it
is to be hoped that more interest will
be taken In the promotion of the pros
perity of our young State than has
hitherto been exhibited. Let the rep
