The loss tears a great whole iu the

'IJach year the local paper gives
from $500 to $s, 000 in free lines to
the community in which it is lo
cated. No other agency can or will
do this. , The editor, in proportion
to his means, does more for his
town than any other ten men,- and
in all fairness with men he ought
to be supported-not because' you
like or admire his writings, but be
cause the local paper is the best
investment a community can make,
It may riot be brilia'ntly edited tfr
crowded with thought, but finaiv
cially it is of more benefit to the.
community than the' t6Schers or
preachers. Understand met I do
not mean mentally of morally; but
financially, and yet On the moral
question you will find mtfst of the
local papers on the right side. To

From the speech by Governor
It proposed to change the present
libel law at the next session of the
legislature. Under the' present law
of both Oregon and Washington,
if au unintentional mistake fs made
in the publication of a news item
the publisher is subjected tp
damages and imprisonment.' This
is grievously unjust and opens the
'.he courts to tie uses of blackmailers
and shyster lawyers. . In most, of
the Eastern states the libel law has
been amended so as to provide that
a person who is aggrieved by the
publication of an article in a news
paper must first serve notice on the
publisher demanding a retraction
before he can institute , proceedings
against the paper. If the. retrac
tion is forthcoming within three
days from the time of service, there
is no ground for action.' . There is
now a bill before the. legislature of
New York, says the Telegram,
which will be passed, amending the
libel laws of that state in' this par
ticular. In the best regulated
newspaper otnees tnere . $tr!, times
when an article will escape the at
tention of the. editor or majiager
and find its way into rjrint.' ttnay
be libelous in in its nature and yet
the intent to libel, which is the
essential ingredient to .constitute
a crimeis lacking.' Vhui a mis
take ot this kind occurs,, it is but
just that the law . shoul f give the
offender a chance to fnafce a re
traction or explanation. The, (ttw
should be confined to the punish
unent of willful and malicious libel.
The Oregoniau says that the coun-
j ty seat fight is warming up in Lin-
coin county. We really ha not 110-

"lie has gone to a much happier
home." That was the conclusion
of an obituary, and it sounds all
right, but the widow was touchy

The value of milch cows increas
ed over $3,000,000 iu the United
States during 1893. They are the
only class of stock that have not
decreased in value. This indicates
that the American farmer is begin
ing to realize the profits to be made
from well kept milkers. Ex.
One of the worst abuses, says the
Eugene Guard, in the management
of the financial affairs of Oregon is
that of" the state printing office.
During the fiscal years 1887 a"d
1888 the office cost the state $38,
000. For 1892 and 1893 the ex'
pense to the state was swollen to
the enormous sum of $196,000.
A bill to abolish the postal notes
now 111 use passed both houses of
congress. Instead of postal notes
the new bill creates a money order
system by. which orders can be se
cured at rates as low as those now
charged bj' express companies,
For orders not exceeding $2.$o the
charge is three cents, and . the fee
increases until it is thirty cents for
sums over $75 and" under $100

In a circular issued by ' the Cal
ifornia board of health the follow
ing in regard to cigarette smoking
is addressed to principals and teach'
ers iu the public schools: "To be
au habitual smoker of manufactured
cigarettes is to be an opium smoker
and a habitual opium smoker can
not be the equal of an abstainer;
when everything else was equal.
Under no circumstances should a
pupil be allowed to smoke them
either at school, on the way to or
from school,- or at home, if the
teacher', by admonition, advice,
precept, example, or by influence
can prevent it.
Here' is another way to' figure
that present ownership book busi
ness. The original roll contained
a valuation 0930,000. The con
tractors found about $200,000 worth
of property not 6'n the original roll.
This makes $1,130,000 valuation,
which at a ten mill levy makes a
total of $11,300 in the county fund,'
Now the clerk's records show that
the regular assessment for 1893 cost
the county $334. The contractors
get $2,200, if they found $200,000
wort,h of .property. This makes a
total of $3,034 for one year's tfssess-
ments, of more than one-fourth of
the whole amount of the countv
fund This is to say nothing of the
wood; oil, toom rent and county
stationery usd by . contractors
The whole .thing will no doubt
equal one-third of the entire county
fund for one year.
Dr. Hallock, pastor of the First
Congregationalist church of Ta'
coma, delivered a sermon on Sun
day last, in part as follows: Good
citizenship demands fidelity In
registering and voting. Good
citizenship demands the honest pay
ment of taxes without concealment.
It is a self-evident truth to him who
is willing to see, that to take a
public dollar is as wrong as to steal
a neighbor's dollar, and to withold
that which is due the public treas
ury is as truly theft as to abstract
that which is already in. Good
citizenship demands catholicity,
liberty," equal rights and perfect
toleration. Old Rome at least
gained toleration for all religions
and scored one in the grand march
toward true civilization; let us not)
go back td thatl Scrooby demands
t, and traversed Holland and the
seas to win it. Plymouth Rock re
ceived it, and America has been its
arena. Intolerance would mark a
return of the dark ages.
fhe Albany Heiald has . discov
ered an "erroneous mistake." We
wonder if the Herald ever met with
a mistake that was not erroneous.
He Should Resign.
Dr. Applewhite should immed
iately resign his position as a mem
ber of the board of regents of the
State agricultural college and treas-.
urerofthat institution. Guilty or
innocent of the charge made against
him he should resign. It may seem
unfair toward him if he be innocent
of the charges made, but the fact is,
the welfare of the college and thu
hundreds of students of both sexes
which attend it is of infinitely more
value and worth than one mail, ft
is absolutely necessary for the wel
fare of all concerned that the regent
of the college, and all others offic
ially connected with it, should ba
men absolutely above suspicion and
honorable and upright to the utmost
degree. The unfortunate occurren-'
ces which have taken place have im
paired Dr. Applewhite's usefulness
to the college, and he owes it to all
interests concerned to resign. If
the charges are false his vindication
will be correspondingly greater and
if they are true he has no business
to be connected with any education -
An Indian from the reservation"
dropped into a certain Klamath
county town last week and proceed
ed to an undertaking establish'
nienf arid ordered a coffin for a rehv
tive. The indian handed the dealef
a string to indicate the length of the
desired casket, and the latter not
having one long enough, slyly cut
the string td fit the short box
The Indian paid his money and
taking string and coffin, hastened"
back to the reservation. A larg
crowd of sympathizing and wailing
natives were tin hand when the
corpse was put 'in the coffin, but
what was the consternation of the
Indians when they discovered that
the dead "Injun'' had increased iri
size nearly a foot since his demise.
The Indians were overcome with
superstition and wondered greatly, .
but finally knocked out one end of'
the coffin and piocecded with the'
burial. We are not informed
whether th; Indian's head or fee t
are sticking out in the cold, cold

One reform that is sadly needed
in Oregon is a reform in the system1
of making assessments. The pres
ent system of assessing is cumber
some; costly and inadequate. The
precinct assessors plan possesses1
many advantages over the present
system; The precinct assessor
would be acquainted with all the
taxpayers and Have a practical
knowledge of all the property in his1
precinct, and the felative value'
thereof; Very little, if "any, prop;,
erty would escape the assessor, and
the assessment of the whole county
would be made in thirty days in
stead of dragging along until Oc
tober with a subsequent supple- :
mental roll Of sheriff assessments to',
be made. It is to be . hoped that
the next legislature will enact a re
form Iri this matter. ,
. . ... .
As taxpaying continues the out
cry against noh-exemj)tion for in-
debtedness merges into a long, loud
wail.' Many people whose valua
tion has been about a thousand dol-
lars.and have always taken out;
their exemptions, thus cuttiug;
their taxes down to, threi p'r fottr
dollars, look glodmlly down their,
noses when they are asked to pay,
takes on the fnll amount of their,
valuation. This causes them to,
dig up $18 or $20. Of course the
old law was taken advantage of in' .
a scandalous manner, but it is a,
real hardship to compel a man who,
is struggling along under a -heavy
load of debt to pay the taxes on it.
