The people of the state'of Oregon The signs of the times as far as
are now in the throes of taxpayiug. ; O. P. matters are concerned, indi
Taxes are due and in a few counties j cate that the Hoggs are again liable
delinquent. In cU.iu touiuies the
titue for taxes to become delinquent
has beeii extended for a short time
but in no cases later than the first
of June. The taxpayiug time of
Oregon comes in the wrong part of
the year. At no other time is cash
so scarce and so hard to t,et as it is
from February to May, r J une.
There are no farm products to sell,
growing crops are not far enough
advanced to warrant any loans on
them, an no works of any material
size is ever started that early. ! The
result is that every taxpayer is
"put to it" to raise the money to
pay his taxes. This suould ' and
can be remedied by the next legis
lature. The sentiment tor this re
form is well advanced over the
state and it is very probable that
relief will come, ; The late re'publv
can state convention recognized the
need of this reform and adopted a
resolution upon the subject, au fol
lows: ' '"That it the pnse of
this convention that the coming
session of the legislature should
pass an act providing for the pay
ment ot, all taxes at two different
times oue-iialfin the spring and
the other half 111 the fall, but op
tional with the taxpayer to pay all
in the spring in one payment if he
so desires)'' Such' statutory ' pro
visions would wbrk ' no possible
hardship upon auy state or county
institutions and would greatly re
lieve the burden upon the taxyapers.
If this mattet can be taken up jn a
uon-partjsau manner this much
needed change can be brought
Grandma Matthews, of the New
port News, went off on the wrong
foot as usual last .week about the
assessor's blanks. Now granny,
you say the Post printed the blanks.
We will make yon a present ' of a
new hat if you can provtj they were
printed there by any legitimate
means of evidence. A great many
tilings you cton t Know, ana me
trouble is you are too prejudiced or
thickheaded' to learii. . Do you
know that there' is in the freight
office at Toledo a large box of
assessor's blanks for Thos. E.
Parker from J3cn. C. Irwin r. Cm
of Portland? ' Do you know that
the blanks now in use are Irwin &
Co.'s form of blanks, but they were
not printed in Portland,, neither
were they printe.l in Toledo nor
elsewhere in Lincoln county, al
though Van Cleve collected the pay
for tHem? Don't you know that
the Leader told the. exact truth
wheti it said that Parker ignored
the job offices of Lincoln county,
and that Judge Blue is responsible
for Van Cleve getting the work
done outside? Don't you know
that you don't know anything
about it and that you are some
thing of a liar yourself?

John I). Daly was nominated for
joint representative for Lincoln and
to own and control the Oregon jra
cific railroad and connecting steam
er lines. That they have been at
work earnestly to bring this about
goes without saying, At one time
it looked as though they were to be
doomed to disappointment. That
was at the time pf the December
sale. ' Had the sale been confirmed
the deal would have been up and
the Hoggs left out. But the Hoggs
were schemers, They were not
disheartened, and with the aid of
the employes they prevailed upon
the court and succeeded 'in getting
t,he confirmation of the sale defeat
ed and' a new receiver appointed
Now there is to be another sale on
or before the 211J. day of :June, and
if rumor and indications amount to
ativthinir. it is safe to say that the
Hoggs will be on hand ready to bid
It will require a deposit of $200,000
to bid at the sale and they have al
ready a fair proportion of this
Btnounl slened oil' on the "option
papers" which they hold.
Just what to expect of the June
sale is hard to - determine, The
outside observer would be inclined
to decidj that the Hoggs have the
whip hand and will turn the tables
on the Blairs in exactly the sanie
manner in which the Blairs tried to
do them in December last.
It will be remembered that time
Blairs' attorneys stated when the
sale was up for confirmation that if
that sale was not confirmed they
would never again touch the road
111 any manner. Maiy Dase tne
the opinjon on this statement that
the Blairs will lidt bid at the coin
ing sale. We are inclined to be
lieve that the Blairs are not going
to cooly sacrifice' the millions of
dollars they have invested in this
foad after fighting over it so long
and hard, and we predict that if
the pfcliminary steps io the sale are
properly taken that when the Hoggs
get ready to bid they will find a
Competitor at the sale with money
enough to make it interesting, to

A remarkable case of surgery
lias bei.n reported from Albany.
J. A. Xumming' had a valuable
mare that was with foal from a
valuable horse. The mare had the
misfortune to break her leg in such
a manner as to preclude the possi
bility of her recovery about a month
before foaling time. It was de
sired to save the colt if possible,
and, as the fatf! of the mare was
practically decided, chances were
taken and an operation was pel-
formed, which, so far as known
now, is the first on record for a like
case. The Caesarian section was
performed by Dr. E. L. Irvin, Dr.
H. E. Beers and Mr. D. O. Wood
wortn. i he lite ot the mare was
sacrificed for the colt, whjch was
saved, though respiration failed to
appear for fully five minutes after
being taken from her mother, and
was only produced by attificial
means. The colt, a fine looking
animal is alive and doing well,
triumph of skjllful surgery.
We see no good reason why the
counties should be compelled to
pay the state levy before
the levy county pur
poses is paid; It would rather
seem good policy to first pay the
county levy and thus turn the
money loose among the people,
than to drain the county of money
to put in banks and loaned out to
the people at a high rate of interest,
thus compelling them to pay in
terest on their own money. To say
the least, the state ought not to get
more than its pro rata of the money
as it is paid in, and, besides, should
suffer a pro rata loss with the county
of the taxes assessed and not col
lectable. This would simply be
justice to all. We call special at
tention to this subject now, when
the legislative tickets are being
made up. Arlington Record.
