Slate Tax for 1883.
There having been considerable inquiry as
to the amount of State tax to be levied for
1883, we give below the detailed items for the
Information of the public The total State
tax for the year 1883 is five ami six-tenth mills
upm the dollar, divided as follows: Four
mill tax on acceunt of current expenses, one
mill for the completion of the insane asylum
building, one-half of one mill for the payment
of the Indian war debt, and one-tenth of one
mill for the support of the State University.
See section 80, page 700, general lawt of Ore
gon; section 7, page 15, and section 6, page 61,
session laws of 1880, and section 1, page 8, set;
sion laws of f8K2, for the various Legislative
acts regulating the same. Oregonian.
Died. A dispatch from Indianopolis, Ind(
announces the death of Mrs Rebecca Clawson,
mother of Mrs L G Adair. She started East
during the last of September to attend the
yearly meeting of Friends, at the city of
Richmond, Indiana She hoped to see all of
her former friends and acquaintances with
whom she had been associated in the ministry,
but being in feeble health she was only per
mitted to reach the land of her nativity and be
gathered to rest with numbers of her children
and grand-children gone before her. She had
been engaged in the ministry in Oregon so far
as her strength would permit, and was for a
time President of the W U X U of Portland,
Tax Levt. The tax levy for Lane County
for the year 1883 is sixteen mills, lie cause
for the increase it that an extra mill has been
added by the Legislature for the common
schools. The amount of levy for county pur
poses is only 8.4-10 mills.

Opium "Joint" Raided.
.. The Martha! and Nightwatchmao have
been on the alert for the past two mouths
trying to capture partial in the act of smok
ing opium at the Chinese house in this city,
but those who partake of the drug iucevta
fully escaped the vigilant eyes of the offi
cer until last Momlty .muruing. From an
account at told to a Guard reporter, w
learn that Martha! Attobory about 10 a m of
that morning noticed a nymph du pave, who
gave her name, at Miss Addie Rogers, who
had arrived on the morning train, go to the
Chinese home owned by one , Him, and toou
thereafter the wat followed by a young man
of thit city, whose name we withhold from
publication on acoouut of i the respect we
have for hit very estimable parents. .The
Martha! in a few minutes ttormed the cita
del aud caught the two persons in the act of
partaking of the drug. He placed the two
partite under arrest, aud also the proprietor
of the house, a Chinaman who bear the
cognomen of Him, and took them before
Hit Honor, Judge Waahburue. The nymph
du pave plead guilty add wat Rued $10 and
cost, and toon after took the afternoon train
and departed for th classic thade of Doug
las county, Him, the Chiuanao, proprietor
of the bouie, was mulcted for the turn of
$50 and costs, whioh he paid. Tbe young
man gave bail In the sum of $20. W hope
the otlicert have effectually broken up thit
evil habit in our fair youug city, at it it one
of the worst curses that civilized or uncivil
ized men are kuow to practice, aud one that
after the passion it acquired, it almost im
possible to break away from. We are cred
itably informed that at least six or teven
of our young men are known to tamper with
the deadly poison.
