Apportionment of School Funds.
Under the-- school laws of .Oregon,
which -went into effect May '20th, 1899,
the county superintendent is required to
apportion" the common school funds
quarterly, viz: the first Monday in Jan
uary," April," July- and October of each
year, instead of in April and August as
formerly. - ; - .' ;,
There are 4306 children in Wasco
county between the ages of four and
twenty years and in the present appor
tionment of funds the'' per capita dis
tribution will be $2.06, of which $1.51 is
from the state school funds and 55 cents
from the county school funds! Total
amount of state funds distributed is
$6502.06. . Amount of county funds in
the treasury . $2510.91 ; amount dis
tributed.'. $2368.30 ; surplus on . hand
$142.61. - . ' - . ': .
The apportionment of state school
funds for 1899 is $1.51 per capita, as
compared with $1.20 for 1898. This is
probably the highest apportionment the
state has ever sent out. Under the
school law that went, into effect May 22,
school boards cannot have' more than
$50 surplus school funds on hand at' the
close of the school year, the first Mon
day in March. , A few schools in the
county';; have contracted with; their
teacher for such length of time as the
public funds would justify The un
usually large apportionment sent - out
yesterday will materially aid them in
the length of terms. . ;
IS BETTER ALL AROUND.
Changes Which Have Proven of Great
BeneBt to the County. .

Dalles Chronicle. - 3 :: .
The Chronicle published a few days
ago a summary bf the assessment roll of
Wasco county for the year 1899, which
has been passed over to the county clerk
by the county assessor. '."''.,'
The county board of equalization,
ccmposed of the county . judge, county
clerk and assessor sat for the past week
for the purpose of equalizing assessments
and correcting errors. . While two or
three , changes in valuation-have been
made the , total - amount of. assessable-
property remains about the same as re
ported, $3,144,452, which is an excess
over the 1898 roll of $72,153." ; . . ;
The county 'J; clerk" at" its session in
March last very wisely divided the
county into seven districts for
inent purposes and appointed as many
deputy assessors, each of whom was well
acquainted with the real estate and per
sonal property of his respective district.
The same basis for the classification of
tillable and non-tillable lands was used
in 1898, and we are of the opinion that
the following favorable , comparison of
the year's -work in- the field and in the
office, will hereafter justify the more
careful work in this important office:
Cost of deputy hire for 1898... .$ 489

The field W0Tk of the assessor begins
on the first Monday in- March and ends
on the first . Monday in September, a
period of six months, which maltes it
impossible for one man to travel over so
large a county as Wasco and do thorough
assessment work. Not only is it less ex
pensive to make the assessment of. the
countywith the aid -of deputies under
the instructions of the assessor but it
makes it possible for the assessor him
self to make up his own -roll with more
exactness and attention tg detail.

Dear Folks: This leaves Us all well. I ex
pect to leave here in a few days for, fikagway.
Can't say how long I will remain there.
Brother will stay here awhile as he has some
deals on hand that may prove .profitable yet.
People are getting out very fast and 96 per cent
are broke. , This camp sure enough. IS a poor
man's cam p. The law is such that a poor labor
ing man has ho show. The capitalists and of
ficials are a lot of grafters; ; A good proposition
ca-nnot be held by a poor man', they will swin
dle him out of it by Jumping his claim, and to
commence suit It costs hfm ?20 to get the case
before the judge and then a lawyer at (100 or
more to present the case and' if theparty that
jumped has the most money his lawyer will
see your lawyerj they -have an understanding
and then they begin to put you 'off and talk
compromise until your money is used up,- then
another call for money and if you can't "ante"
your case is put off again until you give it up
in disgust. The officials tell you they can't
help you; you must see a lawyer. - This is the
.way thousands of cases are carried on and the
poor devil can swear and cuss, and tell how he
is beaten out of. his case. - The poor Canadian
suffers the same as tbe Americans. Clerks in
the recorder's office note all errors when a man
files his placer or quartz claim and then some
friend of theirs will be posted and he goes out
and restakes your claim, then you lose it be
cause it is not properly done and the clerk gets
an Interest in the location providing there is
anything in it. This is only a small way the
thieving is done, so thousands of people leave
in disgust and the hydraulic capitalist gets in
and buys up a part of a creek and no more.
Then they send out men to buy the balance at
a very low price and if you don't want to take
the price they offer you can keep it. Then you
have to have your claim re-recorded at $2.60,
then get a "lay-over'.' which wiU hold your
claim until next June; then the season will
open and if you are not here at that time your
claim is declared vacant, and the hydraulic
man captures it. In the meantime the hy
draulic man gets a permit to tale out the
water in the creek up as far as the mines are
good, runs it in a flume along' the side of the
hills and turnB it back in the creek somewhere
above the mouth, and if you want to work your
claim you have no water unless you are able to
buy it from the ditch or flume company, so you
lose your claim after all unless you can pay a
big price for a few inches of water; If you show
fight the police run you in and you get a
chancS to lay In jail and think what a d- :d
fool you were for coming into such a country.
Such rascals would be strung up on the Ameri
can side "too quick." It is a common saying,
"If I ever get back under the stars and stripes
I never will leave it again." I have heard
many Canadians say ' they are going to the
United States and take out their papers as this
government is too rotten for them.
You may write me at Skagway. ' . . The
nights are getting cold and freezing; stormy
weather threatening; Four steamboat lines
are running here and fare is cheap, which is a
blessing for the people. ------ . , . , ,
