Register: "The editor of the
Guard places himself in a ridicu
lous position in his repeated sallies
at the editor of the Oregonian con
cerning the delinquent tax list that
the Portland paper is publishing,
inasmuch as the Guard has pub

at the Oregonian will apply just as

Another thing the Guard omits
in its "sallies." It fails to notice
that the Oregonian has not adver

of delinquents to be sold at the
court house, or the names of de
linquent poll tax citizens to be sold
as has the Guard. Neither has the
Oregonian published any levies for
amounts below $2 that we have
noticed; whereas the Guard pub
lished numerous levies varying in
amounts from a few cents up, in
face of the known fact that the
property levied upon would not
pay the expense of advertising.
