A NEW ASSESSMENT LAW.
To be Proposed at the Next Session
of the Legislature.
Senator Mulkey, of Polk county,
has compiled a new assessment law
which he will introduce and work
to secure its passage this winter
The principal points of the bill are
given by the Dallas Observer, as
"It provides for the assessment of
all propei ty of whatever nature
(except school houses, etc.) belong
ing to all persons, . firms, corpora
tions or syndicates. The mortgage
tax is practically restored. "All
credits are assessed. The owner of
the land and the mortgagee each
pay taxes according to his equity
in the land.
It makes the debtor the agent in
part for ascertaining credits, and if
any debtor pays taxes on any
amount he owes another, such pay
ment of taxes will be considered
part payment of the debt.
It makes all property assessable,
and if any person or institution
fails to give in their assessment the
assessor shall make an arbitrary
assessment of the same, which shall
be deemed a valid assessment. Any
person or institution wrongfully re
turning to the assessor his property
shall, when the fact is ascertained,
is impossible, a proper showing
made to the county court will give
the tax collector such credit relief
as is just.
After the sheriff has exhausted
his power in the collection of delin
quent tAStes then he shall make and
file with the county clerk his de
linquent roll, which shall be so
ruled as to provide for the record
of the delinquencies of three years.
After five years of delinquency the
same is dropped from the records."
MSFl'S Flinch C'Ct If , be rightly assessed and then 20 per

Yaqulna Bay Channel.
Contractors are looking forward
to having an opportunity to bid on
the work of deepening the channel
at Yaquina bay before long, as
Senator Mitchell has introduced a
resolution to find out why the con
tract for this work has not been let.
There is an appropriation of $25,000
for putting more stone on the jetties
at Yaquina, but the million or more
dollars required for making a ship
channel into the harbor there has
not yet been appropriated, or its
expenditure ordered under the con
tract system. Captain W. L. Fisk,
United States engineers, som time
since forwarded to the chief of
engineers a project for the proposed
work at Yaquina, but it has not
been approved by the secretary of
war, so the whole matter is "in the

county board of equalization meets
August 1 and continues in session
not less than three days nor more
than three weeks. After the work
of the county board is performed
the county court can. make no
changes in the assessment.
A summary of the assessment
only is sent to the Secretary of!
State for the use of the State Board
of Equalization. This saves the I
state through its counties about!
$25,000 a year.

While outside last week we had
the pleasure of having a short talk
with Hon. E. R. Lake. Mr. Lake
is the member of the lower house
of the Oregon legislature, in which
Lincoln county has a sort of pro
prietary or joint interest: some
thing like two-thirds or three-fifths.
Mr. Lake, though, is a very nice
and affable man, and will, nodoubt,
give Lincoln county as good a
representation as she could reason
ably expect from any joint repre
sentative who is not a resident of
the countv. Mr. Lake made some
