The circumstances surrounding this

the day before. I went over to his

PESSIMISM IS RELATED
Future In Columbia and Clatsop
Counties Is Declared to Be
BY JOHN W. KELLY.
ASTORIA, Or, March 18. (Spe
cial.) Many farms in Columbia and
Clatsop counties do not yield, in
rent enough to pay the taxes. Log
ged-off lands' in Columbia county,
for which there is absolutely no
market, are assessed from $5 to 830
an acre. Some people have stopped
paying taxes in Astoria and , have
submitted to city, county, and state
taking their real estate. Such were
some of the statements made to the
state tax investigation commission
Pressure of taxes, particularly in
Astoria and Clatsop county, is such
that in this section the people are
as pessimistic as they are in Mal
heur, as shown at the La Grande
hearing earlier in the week. As in
eastern Oregon counties, the demand
for a reduction in taxes is insistent
and many of the suggestions here
tofore made to the commission have
Income Tax Is Favored.
Particularly do taxpayers favor a
state income tax as a method oi
equalizing the burden and lightening
the load n real property. Also
there are advocates of a poll tax and
there "is an insistence for the aboli
tion of various commissions and the
elimination of everything that is not
a prime necessity,
Not only is the present situation
uncomfortable, but the future is far
from alluring. In fact, the future is
a serious matter. About half of -the
taxes of Columbia ' and Clatsop
counties, the commission . was in
formed, comes from timber. The
forests of these counties are being
steadily wiped out and it is only , a
matter of years when scarred and
jagged stumps are left and instead
of timber there will -be nothing but
cut-over lands of small value. What
will these counties do then?
The question was propounded to the
commission by taxpayers wno sup
plied the answer themselves, an in

The 40 per cent increase in valuation
was brought about by the port of
Astoria, so that more money, could
be raised to complete its municipal

than that which Germans must pay

HUMAN VOICE TO BE USED
Newspaper Enterprise First
of Kind in Oregon.
SERVICE TO BE REGULAR
Hundreds of Receiving Stations In
Oregon and Washington
Are to Be Served.
The Oregonian yesterday completed
installation ot a powerful station for
radio telephone broadcasting. It is
the first newspaper enterprise of the
kind in Oregon and has been taken
up because of the phenomenal prog
ress of interest in the radio phone.
The Oregonian's station is built to
give a regular and permanent serv
ice to the hundreds of receiving sta
tions in Oregon and Washington.
First tests of the station will be
made today or tomorrow and it is
expected that within a week concerts,
weather forecasts, occasional news
bulletins and intelligence of general
interest will be sent out daily. The
station has been installed in a room
Just under the big clock in The Ore
gonian tower and aerials have been
sp.-ead into the air fbr a distance of
70 feet to the top of a 60-foot steel
mast erected on the roof. The sta
tion is the result of plans made two
months ago. .
All Oregon to Be Covered.
The Oregonian's station will cover
all Oregon with ease and its broad
casting will reach throughout the
northwest and, undoubtedly, to all
parts of the Pacific coast, to Mexico
and Alaska.' Under all conditions, it
is expected to project' the human
voice 600 miles, while under favorable
circumstances many times , that dis
tance will be bridged.
When set up in a New York labora
tory for testing. The Oregonian's ap
paratus flung the human voice, both
in music and the spoken word, from
Halifax to Georgia and as far west
as Chicago. Receiving stations re
ported in those tests that the mes
sages were received "QrfA," the radio
expression for "strong and loud." .
The new steel tower on The Ore
gonian root tnat leaus tne lour an
tennae wires from the sending sta
tion up into the air are 1H2 feet above
the street. The antennae are them
selves 70 feet long and have a coun
terpoise directly underneath and
stretched a few feet above the roof
that is used as an additional ground.
This, according to radio engineers,
gives greater radiation, than the ordi
nary ground used alone, as it . is said
to rfiduce the antennae resistance to
a minimum. ?
Speech Amplifier Cued.
The apparatus for The Oregonian
tation was assembled by the Ship

York, from parts made by the Gen
eral Electric company. J. B. Weed,
manager of the local branch of the
radio service, said the transmitting
apparatus consists of three 50-watt
power vacuum tubes, one of which
used as a speech amplifier, the
second as the modulator and the third
as oscillator. The Heising circuit is
used in the modulation and the Col
petts circuit as the oscillating unit.
Various transformers and condens
ers have been placed throughout the
several circuits .nd used as is nec
essary to the generation of electrical
oscillations and for the modulation of
