The JBurlgoge Tax Law.
IMtob Guakd: In the dally (W

articlelfrom the Farmer discussing 'the
niort'gago lax law, The article . ft
founded upon a circular issued and
bClivvo mo assessors oi urn aevrruicuun-
tiesnTtne'Btate by Mr. Hugh Ropr
"' Vlahager of Wo Dundee Investment
Coqipany. The ptmd is. taken by
Tr.. Rogers that the fnoftgnfles held by
'the company in tltin State should not
W.issWd or taxed to thnlr full face
value, but' that they should bo scaled

valuing property to place it at a figure
they believe it would fetch at a forced
sale, and this is right, placing property
on a. level with the cash it would bring

Domestic capital has never been ex
erapt, nor is not now from paying tax
es on iu nominal value, whether repre
sented y . mortgages, or in actual twen
ty dollar, pieces, and I am at a loss to
know how an assessor could value

property . which in ordinary business
transactions is Worth ten thousand
dollar), at less than its face value.
Such a security Would fet ;h its face
Vaktft at any tin ti if put upon the niar
set Home cap tal is' entitled to as
thu'cll cbhsidnration as foreign capita
and; it has been and is no subject to
ali,t!ie Hardship (or rather juxtice) ihi
posed upon foreign capital by this
mortgage tax law.
I think osseBSors will be' slow in
vJd"p1ing Mr. Rogers' recommendation
tosealo down his mortgages to ono
half their face value, of If any should
do so t fodr it will be Jilllcult for them
to Oil tt r satisfactory redjtjns to the peo
ple ft)r having done so;
The Farmer indorses tie views
Mr Rogers as enunciated in his circu
lar, and the Oregonian doubtlessly approves,'-which
shows thoir friendship
for foreign wealth rather than home
enterprise and industry.
The Farmer's article is altogether
Eclipsed by a correspondent who signs
liiir.sclf J. Fret' Clurk, and whoso let
trr immediately follows' the Farmer's
ttrticle. Doubtless Mr. CI irk is a rep
resentative of foreign capital and
be feels very resentful at a Legislature
that would presume- to pass such
measure as the mortgage tax law.
He first charges the Legislature with
"class legislation." Is it class legisla
tio'n to exempt foreign capital while
domestic capital is taxed at its full
valuet Ho says "its promoters sought
to cinch Portland ami foreign capital
ists." How h Portland or foreign cap
Italists cinched by this actl Do they
want to escape-taxation! If they do
they xtight to b cinched. But if this
Is sinching then every man in Oregon
Is equally cinched. After a tirade of
Scurrilous abuse ha indulges in the fol
lowing which may or may not be the
sense of the people of Portland, gener
ally.- "They (the Legislature) lacked
the knowledge that has been garnered
by. "numberless states, territories and
counties, viz, that direct taxation on
money invariably and inevitably leads
to Itij' secretion or withdrawal They
wished Portland, w hich already pays
about half the state taxation to pay
thn other half also." And much more
in the same strain. If this man, J.
Fred Clark, represents any body of re
spectable then, either in Dundee
or Portland, then had better put a
curb on his bit, or sequester hint so
that ho can do neither himself cor
them any further harm. "If the coun
try ran stand the strain, Portland can.1

maXe the lrp(l of this law an issue
at the next election in this State, the
country will say all right. If foreign
capital is to make the laws of Oregon
the sooner we know it the better.
There is no just cause for the oppo
sition manifested to this law, and no
one finds fault with it 'except those
who entirely escaped taxation' before
its enactment, and their paid defenders.
All the noise wo hear alwut the ntyrv
