A CLEAN RECORD.
The fusion administration is entitled
to and will receive the credit for the
splendid financial condition in which the
Btate of Washington has been placed
during the last year and a half . Prior
to the laBt election the financial affairs
of the sta'e ere conducted in such a
reckless manner that state warrants were
at a heavy discount and the necessity for
closing up certain public institutions cf
the state was a matter of serious discus
sion. The republican newspapers howled it
up and down the state that success of
fusionist meant certain disaster,and that,
in fact, the possibility of defeat of the
republican party was a serious menace
to the best interests of the people. Prior
to the labt election we had hard times,
and the republican press free'y admitted
it purely for campaign purposee yet
conditions are in reality no better now!
than they were two years ago. Since
the last election ihe fanners have
harvested an Immense grain crop, which,
on account of the foreign short crops,
has brought them u fair price.
With this one exception there has net
been cause for congratulation on the part
oi the wealth producers ol the country.
The rise in price of wheat was merely a
matter of rare good luck, and now that
foreign iiati'inn have goo I prospects for
a normal yield of grain this, year the
price has siuaio in thin btaiu Mumped
below the hall-dollar mark,
!ut du iiig the two years preceding the
last election the time admitted by the
republican press to bo unusually severe'
the republican party put this state in
debt at the rate of If 1025 per day, and this
according to their own sworn statements I
During the first fourteen nionlhB of re
form administration of the eta'e this
leakage of $102." per day was stopped
and $1202 per (lav was saved and applied
to paying off the euonnuu.i slate debt
piled up under the former a Iministration
Under judicious legislation and the
practice of economy and strict honesty in
i the conduct of affairs, sta'e warrants be
came ft good investment once more and
are now and have been for several
months worth 2 cents premium better
, than goldbug gold dollars. Over $1)00,
000 of the republican debt has been
wiped out, and $50,000 of the state bonds
have been paid off, and the holders of
the balance of these bonds have made a
proposal to refund I hem when due at n
still lower rate of interest.
And this is an illustration of the "dis
aster" which the republican press pre
dicted would result upon the Buccees of
the reform forces in that state. But the
republicans declare that they would have
made equally as good a record if Mr.
Sullivan and his party had carried the
state. In view of the fact that duiing
the two years of admitted "hard times"
the McGraw administration continually
increased the state debt until it averaged
$1025 per day, is it reasonable to suppose
that Mr. Sullivan and his party would
have curtailed expenses and practiced
economy during the period of "good
times" which they claim has followed
tho election of Mr. McKinley?
No sensible citizen believes they would.
On the contrary, it is remarkable to sun
pose the state debt would have been in
creased instead of diminished. Hence we
say the reform alministration has ful
filled the promises made for it, has re
stored the credit of the state, and is en
titled to the commendation of all good

of beets, and large quantities of bread,

Board of Equalization Adjourns.
To fulfill the requirements of the
statute, the' Clackamas county board of
equalization met Monday at the court
house, and adjourned until October 2oth.
At that time Assessor Stout expects to
have the assessment roll for 1898 com
pleted. He is very busy just now with
the work, even putting in Sundays to get
the roll ready by the requited time. As
he is, recording a separate description
for each individual piece of property, a
large amount of work is involved. The
great number of pieces of land platted
into town lots, also makes extra work in
the assessor's office, as each separate lot
and block has to be mentioned in the
description. For instance, the Oregon
Iron & Steel Company's addition to Os
wego and Minthorn addition to Portland,
takes up one-half of one of the large
volumes of the tax roll. During the
fiiscai year ending in March, 1898, 1200
transfers were recorded in the county
recorder's office, most of these being
larger tracts cut up in small parcels
As each description has to be written
out, this also, adds considerably to the
work of the office. The county board o
equalization consists of the judge, clerk
and assessor, end the statutes state that
they shall meet on the last Monday in
August, but very few of them in Oregon
are ready for business by that time, but
meet and adjourn until a later date.
