' The registration books will be open at

While the city tax levy is only 9 mills
this year as against 1 S last year, based
upon this years assessment the total re
venue will be greater than last year.

the new year will be with us, and with it
comes the greatest anticipation for a
prosperous year, even more so than 1905,
which has been generous to a fault.
ing with October, in 1905 our , exports to
China exceeded those of the correspond
ing ten months In 1904 by $29,547,683.
Should the boycott in China succeed,
and our who'e trade with China cease it
may be followed by us los ng al , or at
least a great part of the whole oriental
trade which in 1904 aggregated $294.-1
682,103. This lo)ks ,Ue a big hazard
and it is, amounting to 1 2 per cent of our
foreign trade, with all countries, which in
1904 aggregated $2,462,947,448, If
the boycott is confined to China, and that
empire and the United States cease to
trade with each other, the loss of the
China trade will be but a .little over 2.9
per cent of our total foreign trade.
' The boycott will effect the Pacific coast
more than any other part of the United
States both in the present and future.

Notice is hereby given that there will

The cost of building the railroad donwn
the Columbia river, which is now in pro
gress, will approximate $12,000,000. A
portion of this expenditure will be for
lumber, horses, hay, flour, bacon, sugar
potatoes, fruit, butter, hogs, eggs, poultry
and beef cattle, all of which are produced
in Union county. It is safe to say that
Union county will receive more of this
money during 1906 than we spent at
the Lewis and Clark fair. "
President Roosevelt forestalled the rail
road knockers by employing a capable
press agent to give out offic;al news of
progress on the Panama canal. The
corporations tried to get even by attack
ing "so usoless an expenditure of monay."
They seamed to be making some head way,
when the president promptly made the
press agent a member of the canal com
mission. This places him beyond the
reach of the railway representatives, and
leaves the president master of the situa
tion, and proves further that he is a bad
man to cope with in any sort of a fight.

Speak;ng of what anewspaperdoes for
a community, united states senator
Davis of Illinois, made an address that
remains ever green in the memories of
newspaper men. He said:
"Every year every local piper gives
from 50 to 5. COO free linos for the benefit
of the community in which it is located.
No other agency can or will do this. The
editor in proportion to his means does
more for his own town than any other
man. He ought to be suppoitid not be
cause you happen to like him or admire
his writing the best, but because a local
paper is the best investment a community

The Chinese boycott, which threatens
to suspend our trade with China, is from
a business stand point an important move,
onj that will be felt in both China and
the United States. Curing the Un
