Gov. Lord and the State Taxes.
. Governor Lord has expressed an
opinion that the county treasurer's
of the state cannot legally withhold
the state taxes, but must pay them
into the hands of the state treasurer
as soon as they are received He
als'o expresses a belief that the
county courts can extend no aid to
That is, perhaps, all true, but we
frequently find that law is upset in
the interest of public policy and
public good. We . don't have to
rcmcuiuci any iaruier back than
1893 to call to mind the fact that
the state itself, through the state
treasurer, withheld the school ap
portionment for some time after the
law said that the money should be
apportioned. This was not done
for the public good, but for the fear
that the banks that were holding
the money would break if it was
drawn out. Many instances might
be cited where the state officers
have violated both the letter and
the spirit of the law and the consti
tution, and it was not in the inter
est of public policy, eithei.
It ill becomes any state ( officer,
knowing that the money cannot be
paid out for two years, to demand
that this money shall be paid in,
either to lie idle in the vaults of the
state, or to become a fund for spec
ulation by the state treasurer.
It is admitted on the start that
the law says that these taxes must
be paid in; and the law also says
,that they must be paid in not later
than the first Monday in April, yet
that clause is violated in every
county in the state every year.
But what reason is there for the
counties Laying these taxes at this
lime? It does not invalidate the
state's claim' by allowing these
taxes !o stand over for a couple of
years, or until the legislature meets
and passes an appropriation bill.
It will prove a great benefit to the
1 counties by shutting off a portion
of the merciless discount to which
their warrants are subjected. The
letter of tlie law is just as the gov
ernor has stated; the spirit of the
law, public policy, public good and
the welfare of the people are on the
other side. Which shall be follow
ed? Evangelist Ira D. Sankey. the
singer and composer, has written a
new -sacred-..sonrr for the Abril
j Ladies' Home-Journal...- He has
given it the title of "The Beautiful
Hills," and considers it superior to
his famous "Ninety and Nine."
Mr. Sankey wrote it with the es
pecial view of its appropriateness
for outdoor choral singing for
canprueetings and other religious
and semi-religious gatherings.
John J. Ingalls, reported the
recent prize fight between Corbett
and Fitzsimmons for the New York
Journal. To what low estate this
man ingalls has fallen! Eight or
ten years ago he was tne of the
republican leaders in the senate and
a man of national reputation, now
he is'a follower after thugs and
prize fighters. The people of Kan
sas did well when they turned him
down for Peffer.
It is now that beautiful period in
the nation's development when the
average girl retires to a corner and
thinks up some 'hew variations for
her spring bicycle suit.
It is safe to say, judging from
the language used at the ring side,
tHat Mrs. Fitzsimmons is no gentle
man, to say the least.
Run Without Appropriation.
State institutions continue to run
as of yore, notwithstanding the lack
of appropriations. It is the custom
of the state to pay quarterly. The
end of the first quarter of the year
will come with the end of March.
At that time, there will be a de
mand for money on claims. Some
have already secured money on their
claims, but the first general demand
will be at the close of the quarter.
There is no doubt money will be
advanced on valid claims, as it has
been done already.
For all claims filed with the sec
retary of state, a duplicate of the
voucher is furnished the claimant
as evidence . of indebtedness. As .
much as 75 per cent, of their face
value has been advanced on claims
by Salem banks. This does not
mean that claims are selling at 25
per cent, discount, as has been .
circulated. The banks merely ad
vanced 75 per cent, ot the iacc
value of the claims, as a loan, re
taining the duplicate voucher as
collateral security. The borrower
might afterward se'll his claim, ami
by paying off the loan, take up the
- Corbeti's Sent.
.. Hon. Henry V. Corbett, of Ore
gon, whose credentials as an ap
pointed senator from that state wiil
be presented to the senate 011 Mon
day next, and who arrived in this
city last night, will be informed by
prominent republicans that there i-i
some opposition in his own party
to his being seated. ..It is said that
such action would be extremely bad
politics, so far as republican interests -in
the state of Oregon are concerned.
Senator Mitchell's . followets are
more closely cemented than ever,
and will never forgive the political
treachery which resulted in the
failure to organize the legislature
properly, and thus defeated the will .
of the caucus.' majority ,to ..return
their leader to the senate. Gov.
Lord, of Oregon, is an anti-Mitchell
man, and it is claimed that he was.
influential in bringing about the
present condition of affairs in that
state. To seat his appointee would
split the republican party wide open,
and give the state at the next gen
eral election, which is in June, 1898,
to the populistic party. That
would not only result in the selec
tion of a populist senator from
Oregon, but would undoubtedly
jeopardise- the -elcrtiw ' of ;. Senator :
McBride four years hence. .: Poli-.
ticians have a way of looking far
ahead in such matters, and several
prominent senators have already ;
received letters from that state
protesting against the seating of
Corbett for the reasons here men
tioned. Washington Post.
The presidefif has appointed
Bingeriflermann commissioner of
of the land office. This is one of
the best appointments made by the
president. Mr. Hermann by rea
son of his experience, energy and.
location is preeminently fitted for
that office. He is acquainted with
laws, rules and regulations of the
land department, and equally well
acquainted with the needs and. con
ditions of the great body of people
who are interested in the public
lands of our country.
The Bandon Herald says that a
whale 40 feet in length came ashore
on the beach at Sand Beach last
week. The residence of that vicin
ity fried out 500 gallons of oil and
secured a lot of whalebone.
