PAPERS REACH PUBLIC
Only Snno ami Square Deal is. to
Use lh'lnters Ink so All the
People Will he Atvised
on Some Truth. -
In its efforts to get even with the
country publisher for refusing to get
back of Its single tax measure, the
Portland Journal, thru its million
lire owner, Sam Jackson, has had
Initiated two measures dealing di
rectly with the country preBs. One
measure provides for the abolition
of the publication of the delinquent
tax list, and the other lowers the
rate provided by statute for the pub
lication of legal notices. The rate
provided by statute is exactly the
same rate charged by 90 per cent of
the country papers to their commer
cial advertisers for the same class of
work. Mr. Jackson was very parti
cular to see that the proposed
measure did not IN ANY WAV AF
FECT MULTNOMAH COUNTY.
WHERE nlS OWN PAPER IS PUB
LISHED. The voter should bear tliiB
in mind in guaging the animus back
of the Jackson printing measures.
It is also a matter of court record
that the present bill providing for
the payment of publication of delln
nvent lax lists in counties of over
150,000 population. WAS BORN IN
SAM JACKSON'S OFFICE IN PORT
LAND, that he'ls its lather and wel
nurse and that the midwives were
F. .-ogan and R. W. Montague,
attorneys. That Is the sworn testi
mony of Mr. Logan in a Multnomah
court, and Mr. Jackson doesn't deny
It. Why didn't he fix the bill to
abolish the publication then? Be
cause he thought he had manipulaed
it so that the Journal could get the
publication. It so turned out how
ever that there are two papers pub
lished in Portlandl having a smaller
circulation than the Journal and one
of them Is the Journal's hated after
noon contemporary, The Telegram.
The advertising rates are therefore
less and unless the Journal bids be
low the legal rate it can't get the
printing. It prefers to, do without
rather than permit its rival to have it.
In Its attacks on the delinquent
publication notices, Mr. Jackson is
taking the counties alphabetioally
and telling the voters what it cost
them to have the delinquent list pub
lished. Lie Number One.
In his Benton county article, for
instance, he says that it costs the
voters nearly $2,000 to nave pub
lished the delinquent list from 1912
to 1918 inclusive. If that were true,
it would mean that Benton county
collected nearly $2.0,00,000 for an
expense of 10 cents' on every hun
dred dollars collected1. ' There Isn't a
business man in the world but who
would gladly turn" all his collections
over to any collector who would guar
antee to collect at so low a rate.
It beats green trading stamps by ex
actly 2000 per cent.
'But it is not true, as any taxpayer
can find out by calling at the sher
iff's office In any county in Oregon.
The Journal merely ihopes to fool
the public This collection HAS
NOT COST THE TAX PAYERS OF
BENTON COUNTY A SINGLE CENT,
though It has collected for the
county thousands of dollars. Nearly
everybody who pays taxes, knows
that the coBt of the advertising ' is
charged up to the man who is de
linquent or to the man who buys a
tax deed.
"This fear of publicity, and the
'act that the property owner will
have to nay for It," - says deputy
Sheriff T vlor, "is the best thing
that coul l rosslbly happen to the
treasury of Benton county. It is
what makes many taxpayers come ,in
and pay -up before publication date.
As soon as the taxes are past due,
we send a written statement to 'the
wner of the property in question:
We have dozens of these owners
then come In ana inquire as to when
their delinquency will be published
ind state that they will be in before
that date and pay the' taxes. The
Journal's measure provides for a
mall notice. That would not accom
nlish the purpose at all, for we are
already, as required by the present
law, sending out a mall .notice to
everybody who has failed to pay on
the date required.", .
- The sheriff then stuck his hand
into a pigeon hole and pulled out a
double fist full of notices that he
had sent out and that had come back
thru the mail marked "unclaimed".
"Just how the Journal methou would
reach this class of people I do not
know. It couldn't reach them, for
these returned letters show abund
antly that it does not. On the other
hand, many of these people to whom
we mail notices and who do not get
them, come In after their property
is advertised In the papers and pay
up saying they saw the list, or that
a friend saw It who knew their ad
dress and notified them. Occasion
ally too a man sells ft piece of pro
perty and takes a mortgage. The
property Is on the tax roils In the
name of the mortgagor. The mort
gagee is interested in seeing tnat the
mortgagor keeps the taxes paid and
often this is his only means of find
ing out. Every .state so far as I
know, publishes a delinquent tax
ltBt and there is good reasons for ft.
't would create chaos to abollBh it.'
Lie Number Two;
This lie the Journal repeats in
nearly all. Its stories in a seeming
effort .to prove that the country
press Is venal, dishonest, crooked
and full of graft. It states, "the list
'.s published five times which is not
inthorized by statute." This Is one
of its boldest lies as- any attorney
can tell you who knows his business.
In this county v for. Instance, the
County Court got a specific opinion
on the matter from District Attorney
Clark. The district attorney said
the law required . the notice to be
published five times. If it were not
published according to law, the tax
deed woulu be no good, therefore the
five publications were expressly or
dered by the County Court. Any
voter can verify his by consuling At-,
torney Clarke. (
lie Numlier Three.
The Journal says "Had the lists
been set solid it would have reduced
the price, $77." This lie presumes
on the ignorance of the people as to
the difference between "Bolid" and
"leaded" type. This paragraph is
set "solid." The same thing Be
low is set "leaded." The reader
can count the -lines and see for him
self that there is not a particle of
difference in the number. The lines
are merely farther apart. THE DE

CAYS FOR IT BY TrliE LINE.
An L'nfiirtiiiiuto Selection.
In an unfair effort to call atten
tion to the seeming advantage of its
scheme, the Journal says "if mall
notices prevailed, James' W. Bing
ham, who owns an acre in Benton
county, would not have been forced
to pay $.60 to have his 8 cents tax
published.".
From the Journal's viewpoint, it
selection was unfortunate for its ar
gument. It hasn't cost James W.
Ulngham anything nor will it do so.
James W. Bingham was notified ac
cording to' the latest improved meth
ods, a method highly recommended
bv the Portland Journal as-'being in
fallible, .viz; THRU THE UNITED
STATES MAILS. The letter to Mr:.
Bingham was returned by the post
master .marked "unclaimed.". The
parcel was then advertised and thru
the advertisement in the papers it
was discovered that another . .party
has had adverse posesslon of the
land and presumed! that it was in
cluded in his deed given a goou
many years ago. Bingham's name
got into the tax roll by reason of a
new platting by the county assessor.
Only the publication in the. papers
discovered the fact that for several
years it had been assessed to another
man who had been paying the taxes
supposing he had a clear title to the
premises. We thank the Journal for
mentioning this case.
The same serious failure to notify
interested parties would occur in
ALL cases where tax rolls failed to
correspond to the record of deeds,
which is .continually changing. For
the same reason serious injury would
work againBt a mortgagee, for un
der the proposed scheme the holder
of a mortgage is not notified of the
tax delinquency. The Baine thing
would apply also to property held

Get a small package of Hamburg
Breast Tea at any pharmacy. Take a
tablespoonful of the tea, put a cup of
boiling water upon it, pour through a
sieve and drink a teacup full at any

It is the most effective way to break
a cold and cure grip, as it opens the
pores o.f the skin, relieving congestion.
Also loosens the bowels, thus breaking
up a cold.
Try it the next41me you suffer from
a cold or the grip. It is inexpensive
