Fay Your Taxes-
A misunderstanding of the effsct of
Judge Deadj's opinion on tha mort
gage tax law says the "Oregonian" is
likely to get many persons into trou
ble about paing their taxes. It is
evident from the slowness with which
taxes are being paid and from nu
merous other incidents that the sup
position is very prevalent that no tax
can be lawfully collected, and in par
ticular that taxes cannot be collected
on mortgages or on notes secured by
mortgage. But in fact tho new mort
gage tax law does not change the old
law except as to the definition of real
estate; and as mortgages were always
taxable, so they are yet. On the tax
roll of this county the mortgages stand
assessed in bulk mainly, as "mortgages
and other liens on real property," as
heretofore. Under the old law, there
fore, tho tax is still collectable; and
even granting that the new law is
void, the sheriff has the right and it
is his duty to make a hheriff's assess
ment of all mortgages, and to proceed
against the property of the mortgagee
for collection of the tax. Of course
the sheriff will use in making his as
sessment, the information obtained
through the inquisitions of the new
mortgage tax law, all of which is mac
ter of record; and he can also garnish
for payment of the tax any debt which
may be aue to uio vuxpuci. ." o
plain, therefore, that those who do not
pay will only make costs for them
selves. The foreign money lenders
send their notes out of the state, and
in most of the counties they probably
have no personal property that can be
reached; but when the notes come back
for payment (the dates upon which
they fall duo being matters of record)
they can be garnhhed -also for the tax
es under the old law. The result, so
far as the foreign money lender is
concerned, will bo that he will have
to pay the taxes assessed against him,
or the legislature at the next session
wiil pass a law forbidding him to do
business in the state. The "Oregonian"
as is well known, thinks it bad policy
to tax credits; but the temper of the
people throughout the state is untnis
takably for such taxation, and they
will not bo trifled with.

It is probable that all legislation
looking to the admission of new states
from tho northwost durinc this con-
gresss doomed. On Tuesday Senator
Harrison of the committee on terri
tories, attempted to have a day set for
consideration of his bill admitting Da
kota, when, to everybody's surprise,
the Democrats drew the party lines,
and every one of them, except Gar
land and Jones of Florida, voted
against it. This was hardly expected,
as tha bill admitting Dakota has been
stripped of every objectional feature,
including a provision that would have
allowed the new state to vote at the
Presidential election this year. The
Democrats, however, are said to be
lieve that Dakota would, if admitted,
send two Republican senators to con
gress, and for this reason they oppose
it. The vote, 33 to 23, shows the
hopelessness of further agitation. Al
most the same thing may be said of
the bill admitting Washington terri
tory, and the bill admitting part of
that territory and Idaho, under the
name of Tacoma. Neither of those
bills, nor the measure of Harrison,
even if it should pass the senate, will
ever be reported from the houso com
We clip the following list of surviv
ing Confederate generals from one of
our exchanges: Two of the five Con
federate generals are still living
Joseph E. Johnston and P. G. T.
Beauregard. Xhe Confederates had
twenty-one lieutenant generals, and of
these nine are still living: James Long
street, Wade Hampton, John B. Gor
don, D. H. Hill, S. D. Lee, A. P.
Stewart, Jubal Early, S. B. Buckner
and Joseph E. Wheeler.
The Morrisonites got away with the
Randallites at the Democratic caucus
in Washington on Tuesday evening,
March 25th. The caucus wa wa did
not succeed in unifying the Democrat
ic elements on the tariff bill. It looks
squally in tho Democratic camp now,
with a good prospect that further dis
cussion by the house on Morrison's
tariff bill will further intensify and
divide the Democratic party.
The total number of votes in the
Republican national conyention will be
820, necessary to a choice 411. The
Democrats require a two third ma
jority, but the Republicans never have."
Eighteen of these votes are cast by
territories, including the District of
Columbia, and 300 by the southern
states, or enough within 'ninety-three
The surface of local politics in Jack
son county is calmer than "a painted
boat upon a painted ocean." Such a
calm is most unusual at a time so near
the nominating convention, but there
are several obvious becalming influ
ences to credit with the cause. Jack
sonville has been the canter and hot
bed of local political schemes iu the
past, and this year Jacksonville nat
urally feels delicate about assuming
anything like a dictatorial attitude.
Jacksonville fought its battle last year
and gained its point, anyhow, and
hasn't much interest in the coming
election. By trickery and the neces
sary amount of wire pulling, the politi
cal leaders there succeeded in driving
tho taxpayers into the court house trap
and that is a victory that should
satisfy them for a few years. In faot,
they appear to have reached the philo
sophical conviction that if it does not
satisfy them they will be left unsatis
fied, for they have eaten their slice of
the cake and a large slice it has been
too. The court house is built, and the
direct fight upon it cannot enter into
the next election, but he who thinks
the people have forgottou tho men
who maneuvered the court house busi
ness, and those who aided in thwart
ing the popular will in the matter, is
profoundly ignorant ot the feeling up
on the subject anionc the taxpayers
and voters of the county. The con
ventions that put out the tickets to be
voted upon next Juno will of course
pay due heed to this feature of the sit
uation, and, instead of the outside pre
cincts receiving just offices enough to
make the Jacksonville ticket accept
able in the back precincts, it will be a
problem this year whether the ticket
will bear any Jacksonville men at all
certainly no man who was protni
.nent in the court house grab can be
elected, whether nominated jor not.
We suppose the above warning re
fers to our Democratic brethren as the
Republicans of Jackson have no show
for county officers when there is a
standing majority of 300 against them.
As the issue has been made, however,
and we know of several Democrats in
this section who look for some of the
loaves and fishes, we look for thosr of
chis locality to strike back and make a
lively fight for a portion of the ticket.
Gentlemen, we are disinterested speed
tators and we will stand back and
watch the show.
Murat Halstead, editor of tho Com
mercial Gazette, Cincinnati, reviews
the riot in that city in the following
dispatch to New York: The number
of persons killed and wounded in the
riots tbus far is about 200. The last
fatal shot fired in anger up to this
time, was fired between 4 and 5 o'clock
yesterday morning, though a poor
soldier boy was killed last ovening by
the accidental discharge of bis gun.
The court house is not an utter ruin,
as it was at first supposed to be. A
large proportion of the valuable rec
ords wore saved. The money that
was in the treasury is all safe. The
vaults, which wero very heavy, are
mainly good. We have confidence
there will not bo a repetition of the
three nights that will be so memora
ble here, but only the overwhelming
force of State troops prevents further
disastrous demonstrations. The de
termination to lynch a gang of mur
derers, in prison, and release a crowd
who have been made prisoners, is
some'hing terrific. Secret meetings
wero held yesterday that would mean
mischief if there were not thousands
of rifles and several batteries at hand.
The excited people had real grievances
to begin with, for the administration
of criminal law has been damnable,
and the influence to shield criminals in
public affairs alarming. That which
has happened we may hope will make
irresistable influence that will lead to
The Helena (Montana) "Independ
ent" goes through Joaquin Miller's
nonsense in this way: "Joaquin Miller
says the Mormons are 'cranks and
Guiteaus.' He thinks education the
best remedy for all the evils of Mor-
monism, l$ut education they will get
through the Mormon Church, and
history has no instance where a church
has educated its people into some other
faith. The worst people among the
Mormons are the best educated, their
leaders and priests."
Ex Congressman Pierce of Indiana
says there is no doubt about Blaine's
popularity in his State, or his ability
to carry it and New York also. Re
publican prospects in Indiana, Mr.
Pierce believes, are better now than
they were in 1880, becauso the tariff
issues will be brought forward earlier
in this campaign than it was four
