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 follows: "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."

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 ViHX's r ::l.nnu. bH. ! 0. !'. -T: ''('! i!iu A' . -tnr t i;, Is mi R'.l 1 S.-.ivlav i.f oer- t" nltcr.il.

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!

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.

For county purposes the levy and collection of taxes will be made upon the assess ment as equalized by the county board of equalization. Thismethod of equalization will save the tax- j payers $6,000 each year, and will serve every purpose of the present method. It provides that the original assessment roll with the clerk's I of a senator would occur early in the session, so that the legislature could have some time to inaugurate some needed reforms.

He filled that position at the last session and his chances are good for securing the place again.
