Tin great New York Herald seems not to
be in sympathy with the income lax plan
which is proposed by the democratic ways
and means committee. In discussing the
question it remarks: "The people did not
return the democrats to power lor the pur
pose of levying au obnoxious, monarchical,
inquisitorial tribute repugnant to the funda
mental principles ol our government, and
they w ill visit with swift condemnation any
party that makes such a blunder. The Hp
ular rial has gone forth that no income lax
will be tolerated In this country. Thesooner
the democrats take notice of that significant
fact the better It will be for their party."
It would puule the brightest man in the
state to point out any good resultant from
the sittings of the stale board of equaliza
tion. Counties all over the state will be at
the expense of employing extra help to
word out the changes which they have
oroered and after it is done what does it
amount toT The taxes on the property the
assessment ol which was ordered changed
will hardly pay for the expense of the clerks
employed to say nothing of the large and
unnecessary expense incurred by the board
itself. It is a needless and worse than use

This question is just now agitating the
democrats in congress and is being consid

In this connection IVmorest'a Mngatlue
has been at considerable pains to procure
the opinions of noted men among which we
give the following:
("has. A, Pana: " Kor the democratic
parlv, the party which for a quarter of a
century has been demanding I lie abolition
of the war taxes, to declare now In favor of
the most unpopular of war taxes menus,
Howard Could: "The taxing of Incomes
is decidedly a dangerous, pernicious and
unpopular form of taxation. It puts a pre
niluiu on perury, discriminates against the
well-to-do, and is directly opposed to the
principles of a democratic form of govern
ment. It produces a hordo of spies and
detectives, who pry into the affairs of indi
viduals and of corporations; and this In it
self is distasteful to a people living under a
free government. The question of an in
come tax should have no consideration in
the mailer of raising internal revenue.''
Samuel dumpers: "I am certainly lu
favor of the proved tax on incomes, as it
would place the burden of governmental
expenses proportionately iihui those citi
sens beat able to bear them. I regard an
income tax as one of the most equitable
that can he levied. I admit that this
method is rather unwieldy and expensive,
but at the same time I atlirm that it is just,"
Henry Clews: " I believe, in the first
place, that an In wine tax is had politics, and
that the democratic party would be respon
sible for the harm that would result from it.
Furthermore it is sectional, geographically,
as the tirealrst weight of the tax would fall
upon the Fast, Irnvii g ihr Sonlh and West

T. F. Cilroy. Mayor of New York : " No
citizen in this land of personal lilerty, in
time of peace, when such action is unneces
sary, w ill consent to the espionage over his
private affairs which would lie the result of
an income tax."

found it nwwary to guard against the fresh

The following is the list of letters remain

Papers in various parts ot the state have
been publishing articles severely reflecting
upon the character of M. V. Kork the erst
while exKunder and great ajosile of the
populist doctrine in the state. Thus far no
attempt has been made on the part of Kork,
or his followers to contradict these articles
or to call to account those publishing them,
and the only reference to the matter by the
ptpulists was a two line mention in an ob
scure comer ot the populist paper stating
that he had resigned. Not a word of con
demnation is uttered against the man who
while Dosing as a reformer and leader of
the reform party in the state, yet virtually
stands convicted of one of the gravest of
fences known in the annals of crime. The
only interference, and it is a just one, is
that the leaders of the populist movement
are sorry that their leader has been found
out in his evil ways. Our upright and hon
est populist friends or those having a lean
ing toward that party and its doctrines
should pause and consider that no real re
form can be led by men who are themselves

this great reform party the records show
that it is not better than the old parties
which it condemns, and the policy pursued
by the party in the cases where its mem

are more anxious lor powerthan for reform
Reports come from several parts of the
county to the effect that the farmers are
getting ready forand beginning their spring
work. While the elements do not seem very
favorable to farm work just at present it
speaks well for our fanning communities to
have them on the alert to utilitize the first
fair weather that offers to get the soil ready
and the seed into the ground. They under
stand full well the importance of
early sowing at the first opportunity
when the ground is in fit condition for
working, and while there is no advantage
in mudding grain of any kind in in Oregon
it is frequently the case that the farmer who
has all things in readinets is enabled to get
in an early crop when bis neighbor who baa
to get ready after good weather coruei is just
too late to improve the shining hours, and
finds himself compelled to wait through
. long subsequent hours for a golden oppor
tunity to sow during which time bis pru
dent neighbor's field is getting firmly rooted
against the long summer drouth.
The manner in which Judge McBride
conducts the court business in this district
is commendable. ' Instead of visiting each
county in bis district twice a year as is usu
ally the practice of district judges, he keeps
the legal bail a rolling by visiting each
county as often as once a month, and works
cases oft of the docket within a reasonable
time after tbey have - been docketed. This
practice together with bis rules concerning
dillatory motions tends to elevate the pro
fession of law and to secure a verdict before
the death of the litigants and their htin.

would fail to remedy the ills afflicting the
entire country, with confidence lacking in
the ability of the administration to conduct
the affairs of this government as will best
promote the well being of its citizens.
What is demanded of the democratic party
is confidence and I ot an issue of bonds.
