Through the submission of a pro

guisedly and specifically declaring
against single tax In this state, the
. Oregon Equal Taxation League intends
to obtain a true expression of the elec-
', tors on this important issue. Initiative
" petitions for proposing this amendment I
have been printed and circulated and
sufficient signatures already have been
obtained for placing the measure on
the ballot In the November election.
"Our organisation in the consideration
of single tax and what it means to the
taxpayer wants to be perfectly fair.'
said Charles H. Shields, of the Oregon
.qual Taxation League, yesterday.
"That Is the reason we have decided
to submit a Dure and simple anti-sin

''than was ever before extended to any party of 41ke nature."
In Washington, D. C, the Oregon girls were received at the White House by President Taft. Mrs. H. A.

Proposal Set Forth.
Tho proposed amendment consists
ef a sub-section to be attached to Ar
ticle IX of the state constitution. It
follows:
"Section lb. The principle of single
tax or tax on land only shall never be
adopted. Taxation of property for
state, county and municipal purposes
and all classifications of property for
taxation, shall be by general laws op
erating uniformly throughout the state;
and no law shall ever be adopted ex
empting or relieving from its just share
.of taxes property of any kind whatso.

ing the required 10,000 prior to July 4,
when all initiative bills must be filed
with the Secretary of State in order
to go on the ballot next Novemoer.

liable purposes, may be specially ex-

. "The adoption of the proposed
amendment," explained Mr. Shields,
"would repeal the U'Hen county home
rule amendment adopted two years ago
land authorising single tax experlmen-
tation by the different counties. It
would also restore statewide uniform
ity of taxation, to the end that each
.county would be operating under a
state law and not a measure of its
own enactment. In plain and uncom-
. promising language, the amendment
prohibits single tax or a tax on land
only, at the same time it reserves to
, the people the right by general laws
to provide for classification of proo
erty for purposes of taxation and for
exemption such personal property as,
la their judgment, may be deemed
wise and expedient.

While our amendment repeals the

Mills In Xorthwest 'Will Be Affeceed
by Ruling of Exchequer
Court.
Lumbermen of Oregon and other
lumber states of the Northwest have
been aroused by the announcements
that the Exchequer Court, of Ottawa,
Canada, has handed down a decision,
under the terms of which lumber deal
ers will be required to pay a duty of
25 per cent on all finished lumber now
on the cars in Canadian territory or on
the way there from the United States,
as well as all lumber shipped there in
tjie future.
The term "finished lumber, accord
ing to Information received here, has
been Interpreted by the court to mean
all lumber that is not rough. One
finished side of a joist, for instance. Is
considered "finished lumber," and will
be subject to the duty.
It is believed that if the decision
holds lumber dealers will lose all they
gained a few days ago by securing a
reduction from the railroads on the
transportation rates, and may for that
heason be hampered to a certain extent
in competing in the Canadian market,
which at present is unusually active
because of the heavy immigration. It
is understood that the decision has
been appealed to the Privy Council and
that the lumber may be admitted with
out duty until a decision is rendered
by that court.
The decision is considered of the ut
most importance to the Northwestern
lumber interests because of the fact
that this territory has rapidly be
gaining ground in the Canadian mar-
kets with what is considered unfinishe
lumber. This has been boards, joists
and other lumber finished on only one
side and suitable for house building and
rough work of many kinds. This class
of lumber has gone over the line with
out duty heretofore.

BOISE RETAINS SALOONS
WET" CITY ROLLS TJP MAJOR
ITY AGAINST "DRY" COUNTY.
Temperance Workers Are Accused of
Breaking Faith In Calling
. Election at This Time.
BOISE. Idaho, June 20. (Special.)
Ada County yesterday voted to retain
the licensed saloon by a majority of 1700.
The fight waged in this city .and the
country precincts was one of the most
bitter in the history of the state. Boise
rolled up a majority for the "wet" issue
that the "dry" country precincts could
not overcome. Returns tonight give
the licensed saloon a larger majority
by 1000 than they received two years
ago, when an attempt was made to
place this county under the local option
law.
The fact that many of the "dry1
voters made a tight for commission
government for this city, ousting the
old charter administration with the
understanding that no attempt would
be made to call a local option election,
caused the defeat or the "dry" issue.
It was contended that the "drys" nave
broken faith and that the election to
day should have been held off until
later, giving the commissioners an op
portunity to adopt a strict regulation
plan. The prohibitionists became im
patient and Insisted on the election,
claiming they had to be vindicated of
the charge of accepting $5000 Iro:

Xew Freight Schedule, Effective
June 15, .Applies to All Pacific
Terminals Gains and Losses
Are Hard to Estimate.
General increases - in class rates on
freight from Eastern points to Pacific
Coast terminals ranging from 30 cents
to 70 cents on every 100 pounds were
announced yesterday by W. D. Skinner,
general freight agent of the O.-W. R,
& N. Company. He was notified of the
increases yesterday . by officials at
headquarters- In Chicago. The new
schedule became effective June IS, and
applies to all Pacific Coast terminals.
including Portland, and to a number of
inland points along the line . of the
Southern Pacific and the Oregon Elec
trie and other lines.
The new rate schedule Is the same as
was published by the railroad com
panles early this year, but before be
coming effective was suspended by the
Interstate Commerce Commission.
Railroads awaited the expiration of
the suspension and then re-established
the new rates effective August 28, in
tending to put them Into force at that
time if there was no litigation before
the Commerce Commission. Under date
of June 4 the Commission vacated the
suspension order against the schedule.
and railroad companies immediately de
elded, through the association in Chi
cago, to let them become effective June
15, as had been planned under the
original schedule.
Few Redactions Made.
The new rate card makes a few re
ductions, but most of the changes aro
In favor of the companies. The in
creases are applied to the more im-
portant shipping centers, including
points in the Mississippi River and
Chicago territories and eastward to the
Atlantic seaboard.
The old rate for commodities of first-
class was $3 a 100 pounds from all ter
ritory from Colorado eastward to the
seaboard. The rate was under a blan
ket schedule. Under the new adjust'
ment the first-class rate from Colorado
to Paotflc Coast terminals is reduced
from $3 to $2.60 for 100 pounds. From
Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and ter
ritory east of Colorado to and includ
ing Missouri River points the old rate
of $3 Is maintained, f rom points in
the Mississippi River territory the rate
is increased from $3 to $3.30 a 100
pounds, and from Chicago points the
increase is from a to a.4v. ram
points east of Chicago excepting the
New England states and the New York
tiler the rate is raised to $3.50. From
New England the rate has been in
creased from $3 to $3.60, and from the
New York pier from $3 to $3.70. simi
lar changes have been made in all
second, third and other classes of com
modities.
Gala and Loss Problematical.
It is hard to estimate what the
change will mean in increased revenue
to the railroads or increased freight
charges to the business interests, inas
much as all classes of freight are not
subject to any change under the condi
tions of the revision. The established
commodity rates, under w"hlch the
greater part of the tonnage is moved
from the East to the West, is under
these commodity rates, and the changes
in the class rates will not bring about
any change in these commodity rates.
It is for commodities upon which the
railway companies have fixed no es
tablished rate, that the class rates ap
ply. It is declared, however, that the
increased earnings of the companlei
will be large under the new schedule.
The change has been brought about
hv several Inter-Mountain rate cases.
