There are thirteen counties in the state whdss ussess- 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. 0.0. K.

Editor Shutt, of the Antelope Herald, relieves his mind in refer 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. ff-IIitfitit.wJas the sheep that nibbled j'Ab'wtf the gigantic pine trees, and ( drank up the water supply; now it js the jack rabbits, and next it will be the katydids.

The Colonel is a candi date for appointment as Indian inspector when "Brer" McKinley commences handing out the re wards to the boys in the trenches. He feels like his arduous labors in The Portland Chronicle-, a repub lican paper that te booming Million 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. Already the. fight .for patronage is ;ettinKijjfraiid in some in stancev Vindictive. The principal fight will be transferred to Salem after this week, where it will rage for forty days. Between the fight for the election of a senator to succeed Mitchell, and the ever lasting tug for endorsements for political position the life of a legis lator is not going to be a bed of rosies. United States Senator John II. Mitchell is in Portland, having ar rived Saturday. He will come to Salem on Friday and oneii head- behalf of his party entitles him to quarters at the Hotel Willamette recognition, and he thinks that a ! during the legislature.
