COLLECTION OF ROAD TAXES.
Tho question uf what would be the
Lest means of colloctiug rod taxes in
lining discussed by the jieople all over
' the taievftod is one of great impor
iiince. Tlio prosperity of any coun
try, county or section, depends largely
upon the condition of the publie
'liighways. No section can enjoy the
growth desired without the very best
moans of traversing the county to in
terior points. It is as accessary to
reach every farm house by a good
road as it is to reach the cities or
stores, for without the former the lat
ter cannot hope to do much business.
A proposition is now ou foot, and re
ceives the commendation of a great
many people, to have all road tax paid
in cash and cyllected in the same wT
Rnd at tho same time that other taxes
are collected, under the some assess
ment, and that the assessor collect the
poll tux from transients while making
the assessment. By this means it is
claimed by road supervisors and other
friends of the movement, that a great
deal more work could bo done on the
roads with the same amount of money.
Under the present unsatisfactory sys
tem each male over the sge of 21
years i subject to a tax of 13 or work
two days on the road, giving eight
hours for a day's work. They are
warned out by the supervisor to wort
on a certain day at a certam place.
The time arrives and they appear, in
many instances without the proper
implements required for the work, and
in, consequence the foreman is cenv
pcftud to either take the time and ex
pense of securing theui proper tools
or else allow them to work at a diad
vantage all day, and by night not hav
ing acooirfplished very much. While
it is true that a great many men do
an honest day's work tfn the roads, yet
there are hundreds who have little or
no interest in the matter and endeavor
eimply to put in the day and get their
tax receipt therefor.' This abuse will
be practised as long as the present
system is in force. What we wanU
and the county will be without roads
until we get it is a system by which
we can get the best possible service
for the money. We do not mean by
this that a man who desires to work
liisown tax cannot do so, but that the
supervisor may have power to dis
charger any one who fails to perform
faithfully the work laid out for him.
urged by most of the supervisors of
the county, and no doubt would be the
means of great good inroad making,
as it is a well known fact that when a
man has 4he money to spend he can
always get a great deal more work
done and at the proper time. Most
road work should be done just at a
time when the farmers are busily en
gaged in cultivation, hence, under the
present system, the roads are neglected
until times when the work cannot be
so conveniently done.

It is a matter of great importance
to the lumber region of the stale that
the legislature should enact a law
providing; for a public scaler of logs
for Oregon, similar to the one now in
' existence in Washington. Such a law
would be a great protection to loggers
and thereby be of great good to the
people in general. This would not
interfere with a lumber company scal
ing logs, but in case the logger was
not satisfied with such scale he could
demand that the public scaler be called
whose scale would be final and have
to. be accepted by the purchaser. The
need of such a law has been evident
for many years, for it is a well known
fact along the Columbia and Willam
ette rivers the loggers hate been
robbed of their hard earnings by un
scrupulous mill men. This has been
particularly the case with some of the
I'ortland mills where loggers have
been indebted to thum. Not only does
the present system allow the abuse of
tinder-scaling, but in doing so they
get their logs so cheap that it shuts
out competition in the lumber busi
ness, so that the honest mill man who
gives a fair scale cannot compete in
the lumber market.

Senator Myers introduced a road bill
which provides for the building of roads by
money derived from direct taxation, to be
levied by county courts, and expended in
the county where the levy is raised. The
bill creates the office of road supervisor,
who is to spend the fund in conjunction
with the advice of the connty court. Fur
all repairs or new work not exceeding J 50,
his personal judgment is supreme, but for
larger contracts he must'advertise for bids
and award the contracts after consultation
with the county court. There is to be a
poll tax of 12 on all males between the aires
of 21 and 45 years, which may be paid in
work. Bridge work is to come in under
the road law.

CITY WATER WORKS.
A Movement Started to Pat la s
Amass meeting of the citizens ofBt
Helens was held in the courthouse Tuesday
night for the purpose of discussing tbe ques
tion of how and by what means the city
could be supplied with water. J. H. 8 wa
ger was chosen chairman and George IJt-
mont secretary of the meeting. The dis
cussion then began, and nearly every man
in the house ventilated bis views on the
subject. While there were some pretty hot
shots exchanged between the speakers, yet
each controversy was received in good hu
mor, and resulted in the more interest being
taken in the scheme, and tbe meeting was
unanimous in favor of some system for sup
plying tbe city with water.
The favorite plan submitted was to erect
large tanks on the bluff Just back of the
city with pipes leading up and down the
two main streets; the tanks to be fed from
the river by means of a large pamp. Mr.
James Muckle volunteered .to furnish power
from tbe mill, until such time as tbe city
was able to purchase a steam engine, for a
comparatively small Sum. This plan met
With tbe approval of roost of those present,
and a committee of three was appointed,
consisting of A. H. Blaketley, James Dart
and B. Cox, to make an estimate of tbe
probable cost of such a plant and report
their findings to the meeting held last night.
A committee of three, consisting of A. H.
Blakesley, W. J. Rice and James Muckle,
were appointed to prepare a proposed
amendment to the city charter which will

be presented to the legislature asking that
body for the privilege of incurring a larger
city indebtedness than provided for in the
present charter. This ooromittee was also
instructed to report at the next meeting.

A Representative of The Mist There
on Mew Year's Day.
Tor five or six months Mr. Wm. 6 lead -man,
sf Cast PorUsnd, a coal mine expert,
has been prospecting In tbe bill between
Deer Island station and Columbia City , in
the vicinity of Caples old mill. People
claimed that the coal mine was a fizsle
that there was bo coal there. Dr. Caples
believed la his mine and that coal existed
there, but failed to strike tbe right vein.
He found plenty of lignite coal, mixed with
slate, and people believed that was all there
was in it. Last Bmnmer Mr. Bteadraan
came here with a small erew of men. In
stead of tunneling, be bored holes and
kept his findings private which he does as
yet bnt bis work shows that be has more
than what is in sight. Although there Is
no excitement nor booming of real estate,
owners are looking forward to the day when
ths land will be in good demand. As an
evidence that the coal prospecting is not for
tbe purpose of getting up a real estate
boom, it is only necessary to state that Mr.
Steadman does not own a foot of land in
this county. .Being an expert eoal miner,
having made it a study from boyhood, he
is well satisfied with present prospects and
is confident of success. Developing Is pro
gressing surely, but he thinks it will be sev
eral months , before they caa commence
taking out coal to any extent.
