our artnaal school meeting peace and
quietness has reigned supreme in our
midsc save a few political discussions
which can be heard among the old tried
and true settlers of the Democracy,
who, perhaps, still have a faint hopd
of aspiring to the office of road super
visor, school trustees, school clerk or
may be to fill the vacancy of IL S.
senator, whose term will soon expire;
but since We can not all be officers,
representing this great nation, we cer
tainly will have to bo content" with our
lot in life, and suppose it all in the
draw for some must be privates.
Therd are two very Important ques
tions which seems to agitate the minds
of the people here; one the building of
a free bridge across Rogue river on or
near Mr. Donegan's farm. This I
think, Mr. Editor, should meet the ar
proval of all right thinking people, but
more especially our Honorable Board
of Commissioners, and cause this high
tariff, whichis annually imposed upon
the farming community and traveling
public in general by those two ferrys,
to be speedily done away with. They
not only impede travel with their high
tolls but consume what little produce
the farmers raise before they can get
it to market, where they exchange it
for their necessary wants there being
no store or grist mill in tins precinct
people are necessarily compelled to
patronize these public impositions.

thereby causing them to become the

other stock to abandon their range.
This alone causes trouble and confusion
among all interested parties. Pros
pects are quite flattering for good
grain crops in Sam's Valley and vicini
ty, considerable froze "oul during the
hard freeze, principally oats. Some
fields of wheat are affected. S. tock ,is
poor but are fasl recovering from tho
long and severe winter as the grass is
remarkably good for so early Spring.
The recent freshet has left the ground
unusually wet and will perhaps cause
the farmers to postpone corn planting
for a few weeks later. Our district
school at Antioch has not yet com
menced. Health throughout the neigh
borhood is good. The I. O. G. T.
lodge here still flourishes.
AXOTUER I'lOSEEK CONE,
One by one the old pioneers of this
fatate are passing away to the silent
and unseen land beyond the grave.
Only a few days ago it became a sad
duty to chronicle the death of Col.
Dryer, whose namo is so immediately
associated with the early political his
of Oregon; and now tho unpleasant
task of recoropag the demise of another
old-riioneeWwfew upon- -t Tlw
many friends of Capt. Benjamin E,
Smith will be pained to learn that he
has peacefully passed away. Ctpt.
Smith was stricken down with paraly
sis a few days ago, and died Saturday
moming at 5 o'clock, at his residence
on Taylor street Capt. Smith was
one of the old pioneers of this, state.
He came to Portland in 1851, having
sailed around the Horn in the brig
"Francisco," in wliich vcssjl he had
owned a large interest. He had com
mand of that vessel for a number of
years, which ran between Portland
and San Francisco. About the year
1860 Capt. Smith disposed of his in
terest in the brig and retired from the
sea. Since that time he has been cn
naced in the lime commission busi
neessin this citv. Capt Smith came
to Oregon from Massachusetts, of
which state he was a native. He was
in the 75th year of his age at the time
of his death. He was a man of very
temperate habits and was hale and
hearty up to the time he was seized
with paralysis, which in a few days
terminated his earthly existence.
Capt. Smith was a very honorable man
in all the relations of lifo, a kind
husband and father, and a good citizen.
His death will be greatly regretted by

An examination of the new census

of said Superintendent, to employ such
persons as enumerators within his dis
trict, one for each subdivision, and res
ident therein, who shall be selected
solely with reference to their fitness,
and without reference to their politi
cal party affiliations, according to the
apportionment approved by the Super
intendent of Census. The enumera

tendent of Census. Each Supervisor
is to receive 500 in full for all servi
ces rendered and expenses incurred,
except that an allowance for clerk hire
may be made at the discretion of the
Superintendent Of course, the Gov
ernment furnishes all blanks, instruc

The subdivision assigned to any enum
erator shall not exceed 4,000 inhabit

nor shall any such subdivision contain

There is nd subject of more; impor
tance to the people of Lakd county
at this time, than that of taxation,
and in this connection, nO greater
wrong has been dono to tha people,
than has accured from the manner in
which the lands of the California &
Oreeon Land Comrwusv have been as
sessed. This "company di monoj
have about 30,000 acres of land in t7d
vcounty4 wliich comprise a great body
of tho finest in the county. It is trud
that some of theso lands aro not, just
at this time') remarkably valuable, be
ing isolated from the more thickly peo
pled settlements, yet thousands of ncre3
are located in the magnificent forests,
which ere long, Will prove of greatar
value than even their finest agricultur
al tracts. These lands have been unU
formly assessed at forty cents per aero
without regard to kind or quality.
Many of our people are chagrined at
being assessed for lands, from five to
ten dollars, while tracts belonging to
this company, lying contiguous to them
and of exactly the same character, and
just as valuable, are assessed at forty
cents. Is there any justice in this!
Our people declare with emphasis: No
This company of prominent capitalists
chiefly of California, declare they will
not pay more, and we aro now shown
by them that even that paltry sum
they will not pay, if from any excuso
no matter how trivial, they can avoid
it They declare that much of their?
lands are comparatively worthless
lying upon tho mountains and barren
table lands, and that more than an
equalized tax on an assessment of for
ty cents would be disastrdus to them.
Now let us see: certainly we aro as
competent to make an estimate as
these prominent capitalists, who, of
irnrr-1 .-iSBSSMiBaai - -'
lation. as events nave shown, for a
mere selfish purpose. "We can safely
say that there are 100,000 acres of
these lands, which, as compared with
other lands, held and assessed at S2 50
per acre, are reasonably worth that
Rum, while much of them are worth a
much larger amount Of the remain
ing 200,000 acres, the Government
price, SI 25 per acre, U a reasonable
value for assessment. Now we will
see what revenue the county should
derive from theso lands properly as
sessed. One hundred thousand aeres
at 52 50, would give 250,000. Two
hundred thousand acres at SI 25, gives
us a like sum, making a grand total of
$500,000. The last levy of tax in
this county was twenty mills on thd
dohar. and taking tho foregoing as r.
just value for assessment, tho tax of
this company of capitalists should
havo been 10,000, whereas, they
wero only taxed 2,700, a difference of
7,300 and yet theso greedy vultures
are endeavoring to avoid the small
sum of S2,700. Truly there is an un
paralleled exhibition of cheeky selfish
ness, which should put to shame, this
company of capitalists who boast of
their millions. We know much of
theso lands and speak of their value
from personal knowledge, and do not
believe that we have over-rated their
value. But'for the sake of comparison
we will say that they aro worth one
third less, ajui then the uiuoTTnV
the county would ba 0,066j, against
the' 'present 2,700 as assessed, or
l,t)96 as offered by this company of
land "sharks. Again, these lands are
constantly increasing in value, yet
they declare the taxes shall not be in
creased. Is it possible that a for
eign corporation niav, with impu
nity dictate to the people of Ore
gon tho amount tf taxes they will
pay, on such immense tracts of
real estate held by them within our
border Shall we, the citizens, be
subjected to such a disgraceful im
position? Shall we be forced to
keep up the prosperity of this
monopoly in our midst, which is &
drawback and hinderance to the set
tlement and prosperity of the country?
Thousand of acres of tho finest lands
in tho county belong to this company,
and not a foot will they sell at any
price. From five to ten dollars have
been offered them for lands adjoining
the countv seat, and other reasonable
values for lands farther removed, yet
they refuse to sell, ahd declare theyi
will pay no more tax than can be raisj
on an assessment ot iorty cents per
