SAYS TUX BURDEN
IS BT.VEHY UMIT
Charles K. Henry Declares It
Time for Every Citizen
to Give Heed.
WILL KEEP INVESTORS OUT
Clamor for Fre Bridges, Parka
Boulevards and What-"ot Grows
Serkms for Property-Owners.
Says Reaction Is Certain.
PORTLAND, Feb. 8. (To the Editor.)
The editorial article published In The
Oregonlan today under the heading-. "The
Non-Taxpayer's Interest," Is worthy of
the best thought and attention of every
citizen of Portland, taxpayers or other
wise. The ground Is covered thoroughly
In the article, and it is hinh time for
' every person in the . City of PorUand that
has the welfare of the city at heart,
to pay attention to this question of exces
sive taxation.
The first question asked by an Investor,
manufacturer or Jobber coming to locate
in this city, is: "What are your rates
of taxation and Insurance rates 7" Port
land is being "soaked" to the uttermost
limit. The demand for more f-ee
bridges, free ferries, a bridge across the
Columbia River, parks in every local
ity, boulevards, more official positions
and Increased salaries. Is certain to check
and stop the splendid growth that we
are Betting.
This city Is doing more than any other
city In the United States. In New York
City people crossing In vehicles on either
the Brooklyn or Williamsburg bridce
have to pay toll. In Pittsburg, with its
enormous population, even persons on
foot have to pay toll, and in St. Louis,
with a population of over 750,000, pedes
trians, as well as vehicles, have to pay
toll to cross their bridges, while the City
of Portland, struggling to upbuild, is
now supplying four free bridges and
three free ferries, and yet there Is a
"howl" for more free bridges, one at
Hancock street, one at the foot of Rus
sell street, one In South Portland and
another at Oswego.
Who Is paying for all this, if not the
taxpayers? Let us see. The taxes this
year on the quarter block that I bought
in Aueruat, on Fourth and Oak streets,
are $22fi0. a fortune to pay out as taxes
on an unimproved quarter block. This
Is an increase of J38.40 over the taxes of
last year. Can anybody point out In
what way this property has benefited
over last year to the extent of over $50
a month? It la ridiculous.
The writer has Induced as many fami
lies to locate here and as many invest
ors to Invest here as perhaps any other
possible agency In the City of Portland,
and is leaving for California with a view
of inducing others to invest in our city,
and to secure the location of other in
dustries here. In fact, two are expected
to locate here this Spring. One of the
largest houses In the United States, with
large houses In New York. Chicago, St.
Louis and Minneapolis, will locate here,
If I can bring it about.
What kind of an argument will these
non-taxpayers furnish nie to Induce those
concerns to locate here, with taxes be
ing raised from 80 to DO per cent in a
single year? If we are to have a big
city, and are to give labor and employ
Vient to the great throng of people that
we are hoping to have here, we must
have factories. Jobbers and wholesalers
here, and In order to Induce them to
come, we must have reasonable taxes and
reasonable rates of Insurance, or else
they will not come here, as you very
aptly stated.
'A day of reckoning Is coming for the
non-taxpayer." A high tax levy will
surely increase rents and the laugh will
not be altogether on their side, as it
nems to be at present. They may think
it is very easy to order new high bridges
costing millions, and parks to every little
addition that has nerve enough to clamor
for them, and boulevards that contem
plate the taking of such expensive prop
erty as the Holbrook and Charlton prop
erty, on the heights, reaching on down
and taking Judge Bronaugh's and his
mother's fine homes and similar proper
ties of that kind for driveways. They
think it Is easy to sell bonds for these,
but people- who have struggled for a
lifetime to accumulate a little property
are getting tired of paying for these
things.
Let us see how this works. The prop
erty that I bought on Fourth and Oak
streets, for $126,000, Is assessed at $113,000.
being over 90 per cent of its actual selling
price; while the Ainslie mill property,
for which It Is stated in this evening's
Telegram. 6,000 was refused, was as
sessed at but JC8.700, or about 40 per cent
of its value. As another illustration, the
property of Mrs. B. C Hasten, on the
south side of Overton, between Twelfth
and Thirteenth streets, for which she is
asking 100.000, Is assessed at $29,500. or
less than 33 1-3 per cent; and a half
block in the same virlnity owned by Beno
A Ball Is. on Twelfth street, for which
they aro asking; about $200,000, Is as
sessed at J33..T0. - "Why should not these
people be made to pay taxes In propor
tion to the prices property-owners have
to pay for property tn the center of the
city?
Taxation should be uniform and fair.
Every person In the City of Portland
should carefully Inspect their tax state
ment, and receipts now, and see how
they have Increased in the last year, and
bethink that If they have the right to
Increase from 30 to 50 per cent for one
year, what Is to prevent them from In
creasing them In the next year In like
manner? How can wo expect to sell
property and Induce the location of new
factories, new Industries and new busi
ness. If they may be subjected to im
mense Increase in taxes?
Insurance rates are altogether too high
here. The Pacific Coast Insurance Union
has been arbitrary and high-handed, and
targe concerns like Marshall-Wells & Co..
Pacific Paper Company, and others are
endeavoring to, avoid paying those ex
cessive rates by insuring in the Manufac
turers" Mutual, which requlro sprinkling
icy Ft em, and necessitates the building of
high and expensive water tanks that are
disfiguring our city in order that they
may escape from the grasp of the Pa
cific Coast Insurance Union rates.
The Taxpayers' League of this city
should be upheld and aided In their
efforts to reduce taxes In this city. We
have enough bridges, ferries and enough
public utilities if they are put into a
higher state of efficiency. Taxes must
be reduced or the city will be set back.

through the Fort Columbia Military
Reservation. This flgrht dates buck, to
territorial days; and the road now de
sired was in fact established In 1855 by
an act of the County Commissioners.
Nine years later the road was closed by
the Government, which Included It In
the land needed for the military reser
vation. Since then all attempts to have
the route of travel reopened have
failed, and now an appeal is being
made for Congressional permission as a
last resort.
