S.m.i:i, Dec. 111. The following peti
tion is being: circulated in Marion county
Oregon, uuinut.' tho fanners and is being
I gonorullv signed : We, the undersigned ,
citizens and voters of the stateid Oregon, j
I liereby represent to your honorable body
the propriety of repealing the net known j
ns the mortga'e tu law und that part ;
of the nssessnn ut law allow ing the tie-1
dlictioii of indebtedness, lor the follow-
ing rea 'oils to w it : In iiiiw er to peti-j
titions numerously sivned, the legisla
tive assembly of lS'.IJ pir-'"ed the nioi't
;ne tax law for the purpose of ein
peilini; money lenders to pny tuxes on
their loans and of paying such tuxes in
the county und district where the mort
gaged property is located. It is almost
needless o say that the lirst of these
pill poses signally failed, H the lax levied
upon credit' seemed by mortgage, and
in fact nil othei t redlts, is passed over
to ihii borrower. Originally intended by
tho petitioners as a relief to over
hnrdened Us puveis, it only required
the test of experience to show them that
taxpayers are not to lss relieved in lluit
"Iiorrowers now know from dear ex
perience that they not only pay the tax
levied upon loans, but all additional
ex)H'iies, in the shape of bonuses, nee
essary to adapt the loaning business to
the complicated conditions arising under
the mortgage tax law. According to
that law , mortgages are made real prop
erty and are taxed in the place where
the mortgaged property is situated, und
if this be in a city or incorporated town,
both the property and the mortgage are
taxed (or all purposes, county, state,
school hihU municipal, sometimes
amounting to more than four per cent
pur nn mi in . ' All this the borrower
must siy ; the money lender pnys no
part of it, us he is always careful to
iiiiike this stipulation a part of the con
tract, or in nlisoncc (Jf such stipulation
be asks ten per cent on the note and a
bonus suflicicutly high to cover all pos
sible taxation. Additional to this, the
complexities of the law before Ssiken
of make the business of loaning money
somewhat difficult, tedious and ex
pensive (the cost of which must be
borne by the borrower), and thereby
lias a tendency to restrict the supply
and rulsu interest. It is therefore prob
able that local or resident money lend
ers and money brokers favor the con
tinuance of the mortgage tax law, in
order to keep up this rate per cent,
"Tim only compensation to the Ixir
rower for the state of things is in the
provision of law allowing him tlio pri
vilege of deducting his indebtedness, but
this privilege lias led to the most alarm
ing abuses. Through this gap or vortex
of law escapes a large jsirtiou of taxable
property of the state. Millions of dol
lars' worth of personal ami real property,
by t'.iM deduction clause,' evades taxa
tion, mid the amount is annually increas
ing. Kxperlence shows that there is no
siieceslul inodilieation of our revenue
law s possible, so long as such .deduction
is allowed, llut to continue the mort
gage tux law and repeal the deduction
clause would result in double taxation
of those who most feel and are the least
abl" to bear the pre -cut unt i ml bur
dens. Taxation of ci edit and deductions
tor indebtedness are practically corela
tive in equity, nud must stand or fall to
gether. For, to tax a person on tbe
property be has, and also on hi'i debts,
Is an injustice w iiich fair-minded men
will will not subscribe to.
"During thu third of a century of Ore
gon's statehood no lciiutivc assembly
has proposed such a departure from the
evident intentions of our constitution,:
that everyone should lie taxed according
to what be hath, llut there is no device j
of law ever invented by which credit
can be taxed to tho persons loaning!
them, Such tax may bu always shifted. 1
Nothing short of an interposition of per
souiil Itenevolenee or divine providence
can free tbe borrower from all the cost
of obtaining tho loan, which est Is al
ways augmented by inqnlsitoilul laws
seeking to tax the lender. As an ac
knowledgment of this undoubted and
unavoidable fact, and in the lipirit of
justice which should characterize nil
law , the deduction clause was allowed.
Hut w ith what lamentable results. The
tricks and frauds perpetrated in the
name of tho really just deduction clause
have become so numerous and Ingenious
as to make tho levy In u great degree a
tax according to conscience.
"Several legislative attempts have
been mudo to shut out the frauds, but
unsuccessfully. One in particular
limited thu amount of dcductuble in
debtedness to $'J,000 Was nullified by the
courts, because of its injustice end there
fore uuconstitoliomi'.ily. D'tt why
should the state continue to experiment
in this direction, when there is no valid
reason for doing so. If the debts and
credits of every tax-payer in tbe state
were accurately kept und honestly re
ported to the a scssor, the state could
never receive a penny of tux therefrom,
for tint reason that debts and credits
must always balance nud nothing re
mains. It in only u poii the supposition
that cillzens would forget or neglect to
report the debtor side of their accounts,
that an intelligent, but ever hopeful,
legislature could ever think of petting
revenue from such a process.
"Ahm for him and our Oregon legisla
ture nie) all other legislatures, human,
nature or human forgetfubiess is de
cidedly the n'-her wny. Our I.HSerBUietlt
rolls -bow that the debts iiif never for
gotten, w bile the credits are disastrously
low ; so low indeed that tbe deiits over
balance and cancel a largo share of our
real and personal estate. If all of our
citizens, were unfailingly uccurate and
inrorruptably honest and unsellish, the
luxation of credits could not yield a cent
of rt venue; with human nature as it
miden',:;rily Is, nud ! I'k"!y to lx ttie
state must forever be largely the loser.
Then why persist in piling up statutes,
civil and criminal, trying to accomplish
tlio impossible, or if possible, tbe foolish
and nisuird. In conclusion, your k
titioners dcire to say that in their ojin
ion th" etnlo will be ls'iiclitcd, no in
dividual injustice w ill be done, and all
of the objects for which those laws were
psssed w ill lie is'st accomplished by re

Albany Dem. Among tho webfeet
w ho were not prepared for the recent
storm, und who took it very much to
heart, were the Chinese pheasants.
They bad a serious time of it. Tbe
sleet of the last snow stuck to their tails
and loaded them down so they could
not navigate. Out through the country
advantage was taken of the fact mid tbe
birds were captured by the dozen. As
they were worth f 10 a pair alive this
was a harvest season. Mr. Moses
I'urker's three sons captured about
three dozen of them, which with several
.others on hand makes forty-seven in
their possession, twenty-five mules and
twenty-two females. They are alrealy
sold to several New York men for $10 a
pair. Scott Ward captured eleven and
a good many others from one upwards.
Sai.km, Iec. .10. Much of the work of
the Isjurd of equalization, has been
made Impossible because the rcxrt of
the last board was never printed. It
has never been tiled with tbe state
printer as the board ordered should be
done. John V. Itobertson prepared con
siderable valuable work for that report
and enough were ordered printed to sup
ply one to each assessor and members of
the legislature, with suggestions as to
eipilUed assessments and needed legisla
tion. The governor did not know that
tho lirst Isnird had never made a reiiort
and lias written Secretary Carroll at
I'nion, Oregon, to file it at once so ns to
get it printed in time for tiie legislature
to consider it.
