eminent by iho pooi -lo, h.ncj:iy and cecnoinl

greatest number." We charge upon tho repub

evils from which the people ate now ufl'erlnc,
and assert that the low prices of farm products

in business and stagnation of Industry, aro tho
results of the unjust and burdensome taxes,
high protective tariff syetcm, and and oth
class legis.ati.m of tho republican pally, of
which tho douonctizatlon of silver in 1K7H and
the contraction of our currency ate Instance
We bellevo that nil taxation should bo equal
and just, that unnecessary taxntlon is nnjttst
taxation, and that tho wealth of a nation
should bear its Just proportion of tho burdens
of tho national government, cud that wo are In
favor of an liicomo tax.
We favor tho calling of a constitutional con

will accomplish, so far as In his power, bofore
tho close of his term of olllce, all tho pledges of
tho democratic party contained In tho national
uniform adopted nt Chicago In 18W.
We endorso the repeal by congress of tho odl-
ous federal elect! u law, and endorse Its oll'oits
In behalf of tarlll' reform and to bring about a
nioro prosperous condition of affairs.
We favor tho speedy construction of tho Nica
ragua canal by tho government and under gov

We re-allirm tho position that has over been
maintained by tho democratic party, that gold
and silver nro oqiiiilly tho peoplo's money. We
aro opposed to ell measures of discrimination
agiiinst silver, nnd demand frco eolnago to Sup
ply the demands of business, and that nil mon
ey lsrucd by tho government ba made a legal
tender for all dobts, both public and private.
Wo believe that tho pension roll should to

deductions only for Indobtedncsti w hich has a

We demand the enactment and enforcement
of moro stringent laws for tho protection of tho
salmon and sturgeon Hsbing Industry, nnd the
abolition of all nvhtrap,.iiis tin 1 wheels, and
favor mora extensive artlllcl.tl propagation.
We are In favor of liberal approprlntlons for

We condemn as Infamous the attempt of tho

elections by so amending the Australian ballot
law as to take from It all lit Utnelii out provlt

The Lincoln county democrats
have nominated Marsh Simpson for

What is the Matter with the
The lav; makes it the duty of the
county school superintendent lo ap
portion the school funds of the
county twice each year, once on the
third Monday in April and again
on the third Monday in August.
Last year the April apportionment
was made in June and for seme
reason or other the August appor
tionment was not made at all, al
though the treasurer's sworn state
ment on the 5th day of October
iSij3 showed that on September 30,
iSe;3 there was a balance of school
funds on hands amounting to $919.-
61, so there must have bceii at
least $700 of school funds in the
treasury on the third Monday in
August-. This was not apportioned
and the schools of the county were
were deprived of its use, much to
their detriment. On the third Mon
day of the present April theri
should have been on hands the bal
ance of $949.61 which the October
statement showed and a further
sum of $233.12 which has been col
lected since then,, in the 1S92
school fund. This would make a
total of$i,iS2.73 in the fund to be
apportioned pro rata among the pu
pils of the county.
Let us have au apportionment of
this fund among the school children
of the county in compliance with
tne law, and at a very early date.
The schools need it.
Circuit Court Matters.
The circuit court . adjourned at
10 o'ciock Tuesday morning, after
having given a quietus to a large
number of cases. Judge Fullerton
goes next to Coos county where no
term of court has been held for a
year, and where a lengthy docket
awaits him. lie does not expect
to get through in time lo be able
to hold court in Lincoln county,
the regular lime for which is - fixed
by law 011 the third Monday in
May. If not, he will authorize
some attorney to call court at
Toledo at the appointed time and
adjourn to som'e convenient date
perhaps 111 July or August. The
sixth of Juiie'-is set for adjourned
term for Benton county, to be ready
to act on any emergency that may
grow out of the O. P. sale 011 June
2nd, and to dispose of cases that
have been continued. Corvallis
This year will be Oregon's oppor
tunity. A disastrous frost has al
most totally ruined the fruit crop in
the eastern and middle states and
there is 110 doubt but that there
will be a large demand for Oregon
fruits at good prices. Oregon ap
pies louna their way into easttm
markets last year and brought
goou trice. with belter prices
than even these of last j ear and
with improved shipping arrange
ments there will be a splendid
market for all this state will rro
cluce. I'ruit men should Lend
every energy to make their crops
the best possible this year by
thorough cultivation and careful
attention to trees. Nature, as us
ual, has done everything. Vegeta
tion has been kept back and is now
coming on finely with but little
danger from frost. Thii is the
chance td establish a good market
n the east of which our fruit men
should avail themselves. Junction
it is me opinion 01 a law l.rm 111
Portland that the county court has
no power to extend the time cf col
lecting taxes. It has Veen the
universal custom for the county
court to regulate the matter in this
and most other counliei, which is
as the faw ought to be; if lefttoanv
iherilT he must follow the spirit of
the warrant in his Inn Is. Tl.e
county court can at least make its
recommendation, and most sheriffs
would be governed by it.
"English farmers are discourag
ed," is the news that comes from
over the water. We are not sur
prised. We can not remember a
lime for twenty years when English
farmers were not discouraged. In
fact the English farmers seem to
get more solid comfort out of being
chronically discouraged than the
rest of us could get out of wheat at
$1.50 a bushel. Ex.
We would rcinsciAillv r-.'i ti.
! attention c'f the co-.uitv offices ir-
( terested to the follow ing sections of
Hill s Code, which appears to have
been neglected. 1
In chapter 41, Hill's annotated
code, the following sections are
" 3471. It shall be the duty of
the county clerk of each county,
on the 1st day of April, and on the
first clay cf October in each year,
publish in one issue cf a weekly
paper having general circulation in
the county, a report showing cor
rcctly the number nnd amount of
claims allowed by the county court,
and 011 what account, the amount
of warrants drawn, and the amouut
of outstanding warrants not mid. f
Section- 3472. He shall at the
same time and .in the same connec
tion, publish a report of the sheriff
of his county, showing the amount
of money he has collected, and the'
amount of warrant? he has received
for taxes, and the amount of money
he has turned over each mouth lo
the treasurer, and the total thereof
during the past six months.
3473- He shall aho, at the
same time and in the same connec
tion, publish a report of the countv
treasurer, showing the amount of
money he has receiveel, and from
what source, during the past six
months, with the dateof itsreceipt,
and from whom, the amount of
money he has paid out on warrants,
and the amount of money 011 hand
at that date.
Si;c. 3474. The clerk shall pre
pare and attach to said reports a
summary which "shall show, in all
respects, the exact financial condi
tion of his county at said date.
SEC. 3475. To aid the county
clerk in making the report, publi
cation and summary herein pro
vided, it shall be the duty 'of the
county treasurer and sheriff to file
with the county clerk, on the first
day of April and the first day of
October of each year the renorts as
fcEC 3840. Anv officer wilfullv
violating any of the provisions of
this act shall be deemed euiltv of a
misdemeanor, and upon convictbn
thereof shall be fined not more than
twenty-five dollars for eachoffcn.se.
to be paid into the county treasury
lor tue beneiit ot the common
schools. , ;
In fairness to the county clerk it
is but justice to say that he informs
us that he has been ready and"
anxious to comply with the law
and file and publish his report, but
the sheriff and treasurer have Loth
failed to file theirs with him, and,
as can be seen by the reading of
the law above, it is impossible for
him to publish his report until .the
treasurer and sheriff first comply
and file their reports.
We bring this matter to public
attention now, as the time is past
nearly a mouth when this should
have been done, f
