The law prepared by the American
bar aSHOciation concerning negotiable
instruments, was passed at the recent

;Thi was the change.
Tin governor baa vetoed the ta col
lector bill for Multnomah county on the
ground that it is anconatitutional be
raiuie the conatilution provides that no
spevial law shall be passed concerning
taxation. This Uw may violate the con
stitution, but the delegation from Mult
nomah were almoet unanimous for it,
believing it would save the country
thousands of dollars. They say there
was nothing in it inimical to the interest
of the taxpayers.
Tin governor has vetoed the law creat
ing a board of equalization, ct.nsiating of
the governor, secretary of state and
treasurer for the reasons chiefly that the
bill is incomplete, uncertain and obscure
in its provision. No clerical aid was
given. This should nave been given as
this is an impoitant work and unless
we Lave a board of equalization it will
be a race by the different counties to see
which one shall secure the lowest ameas
nient to avoid state taxes.

The friends of Ir. W. E. Carll are
urging him to stand for re election at the
coming school election and we under
stand he has decided to allow his name
to be used. Dr. Carll has made a very
efficient member of the board, always
taking advanced steps for the better
ment of the schools, compatible with
economy. He has especially given his
attention to matters of sanitation
and those pertaining to the health of the
pupils. We do not know of the can
didacy of ar yone ele at this time.
Dkwey has aked that the battle-ship
Oregon be cent to Manila and he is
right. Probably no vetiHel in any of the
navies ol the world is eo well known or
would be more dreaded in a naval com
bat than the Oregon. Complications
are liable to occur at any time in the
China sea and tbe great powers are
massing their naval strength more and
more in that quarter. The Oregon would
command the renpect of any nation that
she might encounter In thone waters
and the moral effect can hardly be ap
preciated. liOAIH) OK t'OMMISSIONKUH.
Gov, Geer could have made no better
selection as commissioner than Kichard
Scott. The appointment will reflect
credit Dot only on tbe executive but on
the county. No man has the confidence
of bis associates to a greater extent than
the new commissioner. He has been a
citizen of the county fpr a long time and
never during that time has there been
any ground for saying oilier than that
be was' a man of honesty and integrity.
He has made a success of his own busi
ness and has the ability to make a suc

The other two members of the board
are men in whom Commisalonnr fcott
