rVTV BS STATU TAXES.
Columbia county will pay next year
.0108 imt oent of all the monev eollevtad
by the atate from the various counties as
atate taxes. The state tax is not now
levied as formerly. The new law oro-
vides for making the levy on an entirely
different principle. It has been the cus
tom to levy a percentage on the total
taxable property of the county. Until
1906 the levy will be based on the aver
age valuation ot taxable property for the
past five years, and by this method for
the current five years the share of Co
lumbia county will be as given above.
After that time each county's share
will be figured oa the average expendi
tures, roads and bridges excepted, dar
ing we current nve years. That is. the
expenditures ot all the counties will be
added together and each county's share
will be the proportion that each bears
to the whole. As this proportion is, so
will tbe atate tax of each county be fig
ured. For iustancc, if the state desires
to raise $600,000, the proportion from
this county would be .0106, or (5,300,
which is, perhaps, about tbe same sum
as would result from the 3-mill lew
on the present valuation. Curry county
will pay the smallest percent, being but
.0040, while Multnomah will pay the
tarveet, being .8123 per cent. This plan
of levying tbe atate tax will endure tor
five years, when another order of things
will be operative. Article 4 of section
of the new law reads as follows:
"In order to ascertain the proportion
of such taxes to be paid by the several
counties, said state officers shall ascer
tain from the reports of expenditures of
the several counties, on file in the office
of the secretary of state, the average
amount oi wo expenditure ot eacn
county during period of five years;
and each county shall pay such propor
tion of state taxes as its average amount
of expenditures in all of tbe counties of
the state, sncb computations to be made
by said state officers in January, 1905,
and in Jannary in each fifth year there-
alter, until tbe January, 1805, compu

this to say of President Roosevelt:
"The finest trait of the American char
acter is love of fair play, and no better
illustration of the force of it could be
naa than is lound in tbe public attitude
toward President Roosevelt. . A few
months ago he was the object of good
natured raillery. His exploits were re
garded as something ou the Munchausen
order. He seemed better fitted to chase
tbe wild beasts of the rocky West than
to fill tbe post of statesman and presi
dent of the senate. How Mr. Roosevelt
nas not changed. He is still Teddy, tbe
Rough Rider. But tbe people have
changed. Teddy is now president of the
United States, He is new to bis job,
and the job is not an easy one. The
people want him to bave a fair trial
and do the best tbing that is in him ;
and they will not put a single block in
his way; on the contrary, they hasten
to smooth the path, hoping most sin
cerely that he will make a success of his
career. We have not ear rendered our
opinion, political or otherwise; we are
as true as ever to what may be called
our politics, but, for tbe while, we lay
partisanship aside and say: 'Go ahead
