In onr last issue of the Gazette we made
mention of a stabbing affair in which v.a
said "on lat Saturday (meaning the Satur
day of the week before last) after midnight
when all men should have been quietly at
home enjoying sleep iu another one of onr
town Saloon, two parties bad some woid3
and one stabbed the other." Our friend of
the saloon takes tome exceptions- because
we said it was after midnight. We did so
understand it since publishing the item
however outside parties who were there
present at the time informs us that we were
wrong as to the time as tho aff ury occurred
about 15 minutes before midnight. l or the
discrepency in point of time we h.we no apol
oy however to make. The difference in
the time as to whether it was 15 minutes
before midnight or 15 minutes af
ter ward mkes not a particle of difference.
The point ve were making was that busi
ness houses where men could lay arouud
until a late hour of the night until they be
come crazy drunk and then gjt into a rjw
with some other person and shoot or stab
them and have to be tried for such offence
putting the tax-payers to enormous expense
should lie closed up in the e irly eveuing be
fore such disgraceful scenes occur. And we
further state that trie public h:is such an in
terest iu these thing that it matters not
what kind of a basinets it may be whether
saloon tippling house store shop or any oth
er kind of bussneas if parties by laying
around them and thersby becoase crazed to
s ich an extent that crimes are committed
for which tbe public have to pay sums of
money for the punishment thereof and such
places if c-le-riisg them at 15 past midnight j
will not prevent such occurences then they
should be closed at 15 minutes before twelve
and if such time is not early enough which
experience has taught us that it is not then
they should be closed at S o'clock and if this
will not do then close them at G o'clock
and if closeing them early will not prevent
criminal disturbances then close them al
together. We nave no disposition to make
any distinction between different classes of
business only in their effects upon the pub
lic. But it is a settled fact that when any
business so effect:3 the public good a3 to be
burdensome to the people and to tho tax
payeis they have a constitutional right in
herent in all civilized government to so reg
ulate and circumscribe such business so as
to prevent it from interfering with other
people in society.
True Cash Value.
The annua assessment in the several
counties of the state is being made by the
several assessors of their respective counties
Time and again the legislature of Oregon
has passed laws to serve as a guide in re
quiring the assessors to make a just and
equitable valuation of property. Hut thus
far the efforts of the legislature have availed
nothing because assessors general iy deemed
themselves competent and antbOrrzed to
take the taw into their own hands an 1 place
the value on property according to titer own
notions of equity and equality. The leg
Ls'atur of 1SS0 on this subject provided
that property and especially laud should be
assessed at the "true c:ish value," an l'further
that "the true cash value" sh-ill be held and
taken to mean the amount' each property
would sell for at a voluntary sale made in
the ordinary.course of business, and not.
what it would bring at public auction or
forced sale." This legislative definition of
the term "true cash value" certainly seems
so plain that no man could possibly be mis
taken in following it uuiess the deviations
from its directions were dons purposely.
And yet it has had no ma t rial effect in the
system of valuations praticed beforo its
passage. There 'a not a single county in
the state where their assessor has followed
the directions above quoted, although at
the same time they have been acting as
sworn OiScers under oath to do their duty
under the law. And yet two-thirds of the
property assessed since tho pcss ige of that
law instead of btdng assessed at its "true
cash value" they have assessed it about from
one third to one-half only of the "true cash
vrlue, " and yet if these assessors were told
that they ha l violated their oath of office
and by so doing had. made themselves sub
jects for the examination of a grand jury in
each of their respective counties they
would no doubt be insulted; but that mat
ters not the fact would remain the s.-tme.
It remains to be seen whether the assess rs
of this year w ill follow those of the past or
The body of Mr. Gagin who was drowned

information that Frank Wilkinson who was
indicted last fall term of said court for kill

The whooping cough has got hold of our

have it. Clydie, little son of Dr. Taylor, is

Our bill of fare the past woek consisted
of wind, rain, haii and snow, a very pleas
ant conglomeration, which, when well
served npjp simply delicious to a native,
but rather monotonous to a foreigner.
Last year in February and March rain
fell on 16 and 15 days respectively, whereas
this year there were but 7 wet days in Feb
ruary and "ditto" iu March.
By the way "ditto" reminds rne of a good
anecdote I once beard: A bashful and not
over-educated young fellow went to sea his
girl one night .tad as be started away, he
put his arm around her and whispered in
her ear. "Dearest I love yon;" to which
she sweetly responded "Ditto," meaning, of
I course a reciprocation ot his tender passion.
Tbe voanc man could Bet find "ditto" in
his vocabulary and asked hi father, the
next day, as they vero hoeing cabbage,
what it meant. The old gent rested on his
hoe, and pointed to the cabbage in front of
him, with the remark:
"You see that cabbage f
"Yes." responded tho youth.
"And yon see the next one there 1"
' ' Yes. "
"Well that is called 'ditto.'
"D n her 1" exelr.med the impetuous
youth, "She called me a cabbage head."

A gentleman from Dallas was
through here a week or two ago
who was out bunting for land. He was
much pleased with the green timbered eotin
trv, but was not very favorably impressed
with toe burnt timbered. He failed to see
anything attractive in black stumps and
log. It seems, however, that thy cattle do
just as well, if not better, in the burnt dis
tricts. I imagine that the reason is. this,
where there is much green timber the trees
shade the ground and little or no sun reaches
the ground. Ko.w it i3 well known abun
dant sun is necessary to produce abundant
vegetation. In the tropical regions vegetv
far more luxuriant than ncre; noon
ing will mature in the dark, inn is the
reason I presume that vegetation is jo scan
ty beneath tho giecn timber. Cut down
the pine trees, clear the ground, let' the
ground be in its natural state and in a short

He did not draw rein; but headed for that

feet deep. The horse paused, Hs wasn't
