A Stupiit Law.
The present state law making

stupid one, an 'I it is high time" it

always more plentiful. If a person
ever had any money it is then.

the payment for same has been re"

true. These are borrowing months.
The cash assets of nearly - everyone
has dwindled down to nothing and
money is tight. It is the worse
time of the year foi such a heavy
draw as taxes. The next session
of the legislature should amend
this law. And in this connection
they should at the same time pro
vide that assessors be appointed by
the county courts This is too im
portant a matter to be left to chance.
There is no other county office
which requires such peculiar char
acteristics on the part of the in
cumbent as county assessor. A
good assessor is never popular he
is too inquisitive, too prying. A
convention may put Up .ft. brainy
iii'an and a popular, but he may
make a very poor assessor. The
county court, recognizing who
would be most valuable for this
duty, and w ishing to make the best
'administration possible, would
make a better choice than any con
vention. Dallas Chronicle.
The London Timber Trade Jour
nal says:' "T''e .Dock company

Oregon pine, brought over by the
sailing ship, "Starbuck," another
of the neglected fleet lying useless
against the quay-side waiting for
something to 'turn up,' The plunk
in question is four feet wide and
sixteen ftet long, without a single
knot, and is to form the top of the
new board room table at the Dock
office, and is certainly one of the
finest pieces of Oregon pine in the
ducks.' These j-n;ions yield any
quantity of such dimensions, and
will, by and by, play a more im

C. P. Huntington, the Southern
Pacific magnate, is quoted as say
ing, "that if the government does
not accept the present bill before
congress',' postponing' the time of
payment of the Central Pacific debt,
or extend the time of payment of
bonds to a reasonable fitulod,'" the
probability is that the first mort
gage bond holders will take the
road. If, on the other hand," he
said, "reasonab'e tinle is given to
to meet the obligations, and for the
proposed new issue of bonds to be
made, the government will receive
every dollar clue instdeof sixty days
after the bonds are issued."
This leads one to wonder who is
running this country, anyway.
