should become a law. A tele
phone ibtclf con but little, but the
income is from forty to seventy-five
dolluiu a year. The Portland
bridges probably cost 100,000
each, but the income is possibly
$100 n tiny, and the fran
chise prevents complet ion, as does
the patent in the caso of tho tele
phone. Hy all mentis tax those
lines of business on their earnings.
Oregon has only about 100,000,
000 worth of property according to
our present, tax returns, and yet a
true valuation would return throe
tiims as much. If we did return
that much a small tax levy would
lay aside $100,000 each year for the
next three years to pay for an ex
hibit at tho World's Fair iu 1893.
With our present assessment law,
public spirit is at such a low ebb
that it is doubtful whether we can
got anyono to even appear and ask
for any money. With a paltry ono
third valuation our taxpayers look
at what the state tax would bo and
a vigorous protest would bo enter
ed. No, you ciiu't get Oregon out

laws and the unfortunate thing is
that if the present law is improved
at the coming legislature it will be

ome years ago we were in jmwI
tlou to see tho practical working-
of the asscssnti'iit law of Washing
ton, nnd cvi r since that lime we
have felt that until Oregon could

assessment would forever give
trouble, nnd (hut the honest man
would le robbed while the rogue
would (MiMi paying taxes. We
have seen the evil elffcls of t In
law for years. It is by comparison
th;tt our laws will not War scru
tiny. They uppcar to I all right,
but it is saitl the Oivgouiaim are
unusually dishonest, which is no
more hue than those living iu
tho iihci states are dishonest. Our
people are not to blatm but our
laws. We am perused of lacking
in enterprise, but our laws are
more to blame for such a state of
affairs than the people. You can
mike laws s tying what men shall

stu'iug what they shall do. Kuril
laws are always a failure.
A state bo.nd of etpmlixatiou
which could furnish each con my
with maps for assessment use would
be a valuable aid lu assessment, A
perfis-t system of iu.ijs, with latest
government surveys, and copies
furnished by the best Hud cheapest
means for reproducing could be done
much more economically by the
state than by individuals. If Polk
county had a map of each precinct,
iu which the farm lands were all
named and valued, nntl town lots
numU'red uud valued, and one of
these were to lu returned to the
county court nnd the oilier, a dupli
cate, to tin; slate board, it would be
impossible for tho counties to de
fraud the state, and the work of
equalization would 1st compara
tively easy. One man on a salary
of MM a year could do all the
work and lio prepared to intelli
geully advise the stale board at its
annual meetings. Wo favor the
state board being required to pre
pare the maps for valuation of real
estate in etch county, aud have a
resident secretary at. the capital to
assist and instruct assessors,
An immense amount of domi
gogery is indulged in by some jour
nals trying to tell the farmers that
the repeal of the mortgage tax law
means the doubling of th-ir taxes.
It Is pure douutgogery bmiuso t he
farmers of Oregon lire not the
debtor class. Looking over the
tax li.stt of Oregon it will ho seen
that according to the tax rolls the
farmer are tho very ones least in
debt, and the ones holding the
most mortgages. In tho cities
you find an immense amount of in
debtedness deducted and few mort
gages of record. What is t he real
effect of tho mnrlgago tax lawt
Why, its effect is to confine loans
to the cities and towns where
mortgage tiro not necessary. The
reason why Portland to day cares
so little for the country outside of
Portland is that Portland has no
money interests there. She ha
more moneyed interests iu Wash
ington. .Shall this stale of nffnirs
continue! Portland drains the
profit from all of Oregon nnd then
Invests tho money in Washington.
Is it not a libel on our state!
.1 NEW TAX LAW.
At ihe lust session of the Oregon
legislature ft committee was ap
pointed to draft a tax law which
.should be in proper shape to be
presented to tho coming session.
Last week tho session of this board
at Salem ended. The result of its
deliberations is a bill of some fitly
pages. Tho bill is ono to be care
fully discussed; and when once
placed on its pa-wigo it should be
free from any vague and bungling
sections advantage which will be
taken by those who are ever ready
at all times under all laws to evade
thoir just burdens. Tho outline of
tho bill covers tho following points;

The bill w hich is to lie presented
to the forthcoming legislature pro
vides that there shall be a board of
cluuli.atioii, which shall examine
the tax rolls from the several coun
ties and equalize the values placed
ou taxable properly returned.
Thus far the intent of the bill is
eominendnblo but it does not go
far enough. If a board of equaliza
tion is to be of any value it must
have such information at hand as
shall enable it to net intelligently,
and when tho tax rolls of the
twenty-nine counties of Oregon are
pl aced before the commission they
simply have before them an u.xay
of aiwtract figures, and can form
but little idea of wneiuerthe assess-
ineni is ion liign or ioo low. me
same difficulty confronts tho stale
board that confronts the coau.y
board. No system is lu uso. for
comparing in nn easy manner aud
secinir whether taxes are equal. If
Mr. Jones, we will say, is iwses-rd
as ho thinks, too high, the county
board can lower it, but unless Mr.
Jones complains, they do not do so,
In liko manner tho state board will
probably iu certain cases raise the
assessment of a county, but aro
very likely not to lower it.
The present law, aud very pro
bably the new law, requires that
all assessments shall be from maps
upon which the values of land shall
be written. Outside of Multnomah
county wo know of no counties fol
lowing tho present law in this re
spect, and ono of the reasons is
that the expense is too great. This
fault might be removed by making
the state board more t Imn aboard
to sit onco a year, and go througa
the form of equalizing, but create
in it a permanent board with ii
salaried secretary, with competent
assistants. Let this board furnish
to each county, at the stat; ex
pense, full and complete township
and town plat books for assessment
use, also copies of such maps for
precinct assessors use, eorre!cd
each year up to some certain
month, say January preceding.
Let precinct assessors ou said maps
return tho values of all lands and
lots without improvements, to the
secretary of the board, and in this
way tho board would have tho
same information that the county
tuvespor would have, and at the
same time could build up a better
system of county assessment. An
investigation of tho needs in our
county assessment of somo systoni
whereby land values may be re
turned on the map instead of by
descriptions will bo apparent to
anyone who will examine tho ques
tion. The slate can furnish the
maps more cheaply than can each
county, and the state board would
then have such a system of estab
lishing land values, that an intelli
gent work of equalization could be'
