That there was reason for the
creation of the state board of equal
ization is seen by a comparison of
the assessment rolls as received
from the several counties of the
state. These rolls come to the sec
retary of blate in all conditions,
showing that no two county assess
ors have the same understanding of
the assessment law, perform their
work in the same fashion, or put
anything like the same valuation
on property of tho same kind. In
adjoining counties horses are as
sessed at t(S or -jO, as the whim
of the assessor in ty dictate. In
somo counties horsts are assessed at
153.44 and in others at only $19.43.
The highest assessment per head on
cattle is $17.35 and the lowest $10.
The different assessors value sheep
all the way from $1.05 to $2 per
head and swine from $1.40 to $4.09.
Is there any justice or equity in
this? And the assessors are all
cperating under the same law.

from the same luck of distinction

criticism of thu Democrat: The
following is the exact situation in
reference to Albany also, as well as
other points, and it has become ri
diculous. The man who gets up
tha Orcffonian's Dersonals from
hotel signatures making everybody
prominent merchants, should re
ceive some private instructions.
"Tho Salem merchant" in tho Orc
tronian's personal column' is grow
ing to be a great chestnut. Every
body who regisw rs at a Portland
hotel, from a leading minister to a
bootblack, is reported by the Ore-
gonian as a merchant.

t was only a f )w years ago that
the Portland woter company was
compelled to dispose of its plant at
actual cost, but far less than its
actual value, on account of the city
taking steps to put in water works
of its own.
The Eugene Water Company has
made an effort to obtain another
source of water supply from arte
Bian wells, but failed. Still there
are other means by which pure
water can be obtained. Jt was a
mistake to locate the pumping sta
tion at the poinf now occupied by
it. If the suit .gainst the city is
brought from any other motion
than to obtain a reasonable time in
which to locate a new pumping
station, the Water Company is
certainly making a mistake.
