PL'IWCRtrTION. t.50 VEtt YEAR. St. IIklkns, January 13, 18i)3. COLLECTION OF ROAD TAXES. r 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.

Total Naceasary tor cholcoj "is "ii '"" 12 2T 18 Sloct'r'l Vote, 1KSK, 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. OREGON'S tiWJIAKBBf, The Convened at Sa lem Last Monday. Balm, Or., Jan. 9. Ths permanent or ganization of the Oregon legislature today resulted in the election of C. W. Fulton, of Clatsop county, as president Qf the senate, and W. P. Keady, of Multnomah county, as speaker of the house of representatives. O. B. Miller was elected chief clerk of the senate on the second ballot, and J. B. Ed dy, of Pendleton, was elected reading clerk bv acclamation. Owing to the illness of Secretary of State McBride, the supreme court was called upon to substitute snofflcer to swear in the newly elected officers, and Judge Bean of that tribunal was empowered to perform that duty. Willi", of Multnomah, offered a resolu tion inviting the clergy of the state to open each morning with a prayer. This, and the rules of the last session, was adopted. IN THS HOUBB. The committee on credentials reported, and there being no contests, the report was adopted. Judge Bean, of the supreme court, then administered the oath ol ouice to the 66 members. W. P. Keady was then chosen speaker and escorted to the chair. After he had thanked the members, the other officers were elected, as follows: For chief clerk D. C. Sherman, of Ma rion, rep., So; J. a, ueara, ot juuitnomau, dem., 17. For assistant clerk William H. Turner, of Yamhill, rep., 36; S. M. Garland, of Linn, dem., 17. For sergt-ant-at-arms J. E. Blundel, of Douglas, rep., 36; Jesse Spencer, of Benton, dem.. 1". For doorkeeper John 8. Vincent, of Um atilla, rep., 33; W. . D'Arcy, of Salem. dem., 18. A resolution that the speaker appoint two pages and one mailing clerk was adopted. A concurrent resolution informing the governor that the two houses are organized and ready for any communication was adopted, and Northup, Miller and Upton appointed to wait npon the governor and so inform him. , Resolutions were then adopted that the secretary of state furnish the members with a copy of the laws of Oregon, session laws of the two last sessions sad the house and senate journals of the last session; adopted. That each member be supplied with four newspapers; that newspaper re porters be invited to seats within the bar, and that the rules of the last house be adopted until further orders and each of the members furnished with a copy. The bouse then adjeurned. By all meatis let us have water. Tliero is but one way to accomplish this end, and that is to pull together. l'lace the matter in the hands ot a committee competent to handle the question mid abide by their action. Thb present law allowing bridge companies to submit their own plans and specifications for bridges to the county Court should be repealed. The court itself should draw up plans and compel all competitors to bid on the Dame specifications, awarding the con tract to the lowest responsible bidder. Tuesday, January 10. JW THB BOCSB.

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 Tfe fl PPM! akin e only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.

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. eeteMt ttMke.
