C. H. Lewis, the well known
business man, and member of the
wholesale house of Allen & Lewis,
of Portland, died at his home in
that city last Tuesday morning.
In the present year there are only
two-thirds as many sheep in the
United States as there were in 1893.
With this small number of sheep
to go around, how can it be other
wise than prices must advance, and
notably too, before those who are
out and want to get in can be
supplied. Northwest Pacific Farmer.

Once again has the Lincoln coun
ty tax roll run the gauntlet of the
various equalization boards, and
while the changes have not been
so great as some counties experi
ence, yet it is very doubtful if
Ex-Assessor Howell would know
his own tax roll now. There is a
great deal of farce enacted in con
nection with these equalization
boards. In the first place the
assessor completes his roll and
turns it over to the county equali
zation lioqrd, consisting of the
judge, clerk and assessor. They
proceed to equalize the roll. After
they get through they turn it over
to the county judge and two com
missioners who comprise the coun
ty court, which also act as another
equalization board. This board
proceeds also to equalize the tax
roll. ' It would seem that the roll
.ought to be pretty well equalized,
by this time, but in fact it is only
getting nicely started. A copy of'""
the roll is then made and sent1 to" '
he state board of equaliz'a(ibn'aii'f :
here is where the fineAvtttk isttbiti.''"'''
The changes made by this ' board
on the Lincoln county roll this
year aggregates $37,070. Of this
one-fourth was made on town lots,
or a raise of about $10,000 was
made in this class of property in
Lincoln county. Of course it was
an outrage and all that, but it does
not help matters to rage about it.
There is a large number of boom
town lots in Lincoln county,- that
would be assessed for their full
value if assessed at $2 each. These
lots were assessed $5,-and then the
state board raised that assessment.
The only result will be that . the'
taxes will go delinquent while tiie'
county will have to .pay an in
creased state tax.

Editor Shutt, of the Antelope

ence to the Cascade forest reserve
as follows: "It has been reported
that some of the notorious Mazamas
have discovered that jack ., rabbits
are ruining the valuable timber in
the Cascade forest reserve, and
congress will be asked to take im-
mediate action .in the matter.

The Portland Chronicle-, a repub

aire LI. W. Corbett, of that city,
for United States senator, is talking,
out in school, and asks Chairman
Sol Hirsch, of the republican state
central committee, what became of
the $i 2,000 sent him by the
national committee for use in
Oregon. The Chronicle seems to
think that. Hirsch divided it among
a very few of the faithful right at
home. If Hirsch kept $12,000 out
of the "sack" for himself, for pity's
sake how much was sent to Oregon?
But the trouble with the Chronicle
probably is that it did not get as
much of the funds as it thought it
ought to have had.
