The Plaixdkaleh sees no reason why
resident property owners and farmers
should be taxed op to the full limit of
the actual value of their property and
also to oar taxes on money borrowed to
improve their holdings, or -on tbe
amount of unpaid debts, for then a man
is paying taxes on something which
does Dot belong to him, and at the same
time the timber land speculator is not
paying taxes on one-fourth or one-fifth
of the actual value of his land. There
are bat few timber claims today that
are not worth at the rate of from f 8 000
to $20,000 per section, and if all prop
erty was taxed justly it would remove a
very heavy burden from the shoulder of
the agriculturists, and we have come to
this conclusion by knowing the value of
the timber lands which are being taken
op so rapidly by speculators and timber
land syndicates. '
Oratiooal Contest.
A treat deal of fuss and leathers is
being made about the Rev. Rastus A
Smith of McMinnville college for deliver
ing another man's essay on the Jews.
Tbe college fraternity are now trying to
let him down easy which ' is perfectly

wrong in using the oration than tliere

preaches a sermon taken from a book
and publishes it as his own. This is

affpru-arJg made permanent olRcera of
the convention.
The following platform was adopted
"We are unalterably opjo80d to the
present trust dictation of our financial
tariff legislation, especially as exempli
fied by the Aldrich and Fowler bills now
pending before Congress, and, declare
such control harmful to good govern
"There is an overwhelming demand
from a vast majority of the people for
revision of the tariff along rational lines,
We repudiate the absurd, proposition
of continuing high protection on pro
ducts of the gigantic trusts, now grown
to plethoric wealth under Governmental
"We demand favorable action in lieu
of mere promises in securing Federal im
provements of our rivers and harbors.
"We demand the passage of effective
laws controlling the trusts, and sincere
efforts to enforce them.
Public lands belong of right to the
people, and any attempt to alienate said
lands contrary to law should be con
demned at the bar of public opinion : we
therefore favor an honest administration
of the Land Department, as well as all
other departments."
The administration of Governor
Chamberlain ' is justly receiving the
commendation of the people, Irrespect

ocratic party in the recent Legislature
reflects honor upon the party, and will
redound to the welfare of the state.
We commend their earnest endeavor to'

D. N. Fish, the newly elected mayor
of this city who has been dangerously
ill, is reported as being better today
Mr. Fish is one of the most popular and
highly esteemed men in our city, and a
universal feeling of sympathy is ex
pressed for his illness, and the hearts of
all go out in the wish for his recovery

Oakland News.
At Natchex, Miss., last Thursday the
members of St. Mary's congregation had
most peculiar experience at high mass
that morning at 7 o'clock, when a large,
fine doe ran down Union street into the
iron fence about the cathedral, severely
injuring itself.' The doe then ran into
the cathedral and up and down the
aixlej among the members of the con
gregation. It finally made its way out,
running at high speed, and when two
blocks from the cathedral fell to the
ground and -died in a few moments.
The doe had been driven from the l.uif-
iana parches bv high water, swam the
river, climbed the hill at the river front
and raced through the streets to the
cathedral. .

Thirty days ago 24 cents per pound

$20,000. The fall has been caused, it
is stated, by a combination of dealers

.Strenuous Journalism.
The convention proceedings at Eugene
last Thursday, were given in the last is
sue except the direct announcement
that the lion. Binger Hermann had re
ceived the nomination. It seems that
iter tbe Plaixd kalis was printed and
until 19 30 on Friday night, that tbe
chances for nomination of the Douglas
County candidate were rather attenuat
ed if the vote as announced, may be re
garded as showing the true situation.
On the various ballots Mr. Hermann
received rote as follows: 1-79, 2-78,
3-81, 4-S2, 6-S1, &-61, 7-80, 8-80. 9-81,
10-82. 11-80. 12-72. 13-63, 14-57. 15-40
16-39, 17-38, 18-40, 19-12, 20-54, 21-62,
22-74, 23-79, 24-95.
From the above vole it will be seen
that while there was enough opposition
to Hermann to have defeated hint easily
after tlie twelfth ballot that the three
prominent opposition candidates, Gatch,
Vawter and Kelly could not harmonize.
They were each determined that the
- Douglas County candidate should receive
the nomination if they did not, and thus
it became anna rent among the politi
cians that while his full strength as first
choice was 78 yet he was the second
choice of 17 delegates, whose first choice
was Gatch, Kelly or Vawter.

week ago by the City Recorder J. II
Miller and if he is consulted the articl
will never go in print. J. A. Hogan, the
city marshal may try to impose on your
paper for spite. Yesterday he came in
to the office and drew his policeman's
club on me because I threw the copy at
his feet and refused to be annoyed any
further with it. This is the kind of a
city marshal we have here.
In brief: One week ago I wrote up
the trial of two Eastern men arretted
and tried in the recorder's court for
riding through the streets faster than
six miles an honr. I submitted proof to
the recorder. lie was satisfied. The
marshall is displeased with the attitude
of both the editor and recorder.

. Ladybird and San Jose Scale.
will take
. Government entomologists have dem
onstrated that the Aistic ladybird has
a great liking for Uie larve of the Sao
Jose scale as an article of fteady diet,
and are now priagating this specif f
insect "for distribution among orchard.
sts in districts aQected by scale, says an
official . report. Efforts have been made
heretofore t? induce American ladybirds
to feed on the scale, without effect ; but
the Asiatic article seems to have a nat
oral predilection for the pest which has
caused more trouble and expense to tbe
orchardmen of the Pacific coast tha
any thing else. In tbe investigations
conducted by the government, it lias
been found that the original habitat - of
the San Jose scale was in the northern
and northwestern part of China. Here
also the ladybird flourishes and is
known as tbe deadly enemy of the scale.
Hence, when imported. to America, the
bivtle immediately attacked the icale
from instinct. The offspring from a
single pair of these leths number near
ly 1,000, and it has been demonstrated
by actual count that one beetle will de
vour 7,000 San Jose scale larvae in one
day, so that it can be readily seen that
if the Asiatic ladybird ever becomes
firmly established in this country, it
will result in a considerable diminution
of the scale. It is supposed Jhat the
scale was imported to this country from
its original habitat on Chinese peach
trees, brought to California by the late
Jas. Lick.

At .'-Rome last Thursday, SenatoT
Villari, in an address delivered befte
the king and queen at the owning of
the international historical congress,
made several allusions to the United
States., uesaid Lurope was shut in
between two great, powerful countries
Russia on the east and the United
States on the west. The latter, from
a population of 30,000,000, had risen
to80,000t000 and no one knew what
number , its population eventually
would reach. The United States also
had taken the lead in all works of
progress and civilization. These two
forces, acting on Europe, were likely to
render necessary a union of the differ
ent European countries which would
completely change the geographical
situation to the advantage of Europe.
The senator added that lie foresaw and
predicted tho twentieth century will
perhaps see the solution of the problem
"The mixing of tho white and black
races." he continned,"brouitht about
the war of secession in the United
States and tbe liberation of the ne

monized rr amalgamated the two races
which, hate each other now perhaps
more than-ever before.
"The United States probably will be
the first to give ns an indication how

It was decided to form an amateur

A resolution passed that one repres

legitimate hnainniB for the league, and
shall act upon ail I matters of grievance.

The gKte receipts at each game are to

the expense of the visiting team are to
be paid. Any player who has signed to
piay with any team in the . league shall

The rules of the National Ieagua were
adopted for tbe government of all games.
Umpires are given disciplinary powers

nngentlemanly conduct. ,
The league season is to on ' on May

completing the schedule of games.
Cattle tor Sale.
Seven head of cows and calves and one
yearling Hereford bull, with the excep
tion of one the cows are two years old
with their first calves. If . a person
wants to start a dairy, better stock
could not be found. There are three
head of purebred Durham r Short horn
cattle, three Hereford and one grade
Jersey. It is as good a bunch of cattle
as can be found in Douglas county, and
I am selling because I have not sufficient
pasture. Enquire at this office. 1 .
