increased and in a large number of
cities, especially in the west, it was

It may be said, by way of warning,
that the cold repudiation of the re
corded protest of 105 citizens of As
toria, against the present seawall
bill, as the same has been set up ami
referred to the common council by
the common council charter commit
tee, and adopted, for reference to the
people of Astoria, will not be forgot
ten nor allowed to drift into the
Jimbo of overlooked things, by any
manner of means. For, as the sum
I of $12,384 (the sum of the taxable
I property for last year, of the five
councilmen who voted the thing into
official and legal status) is to the sum
of $365,469 (the sum of the taxable
property of the 105 protestants, for
the same period) so is the ratio of
opposition to the measure in this
city. This is the condition of affairs
in this relation now, and it will not
change in favor of the bill between
this and the first Tuesday in Decern
It is only fair to the general public
that these ratios should be known, in
order that the relative bearings of
the groups at interest may be honest
ly and manifest in the resume that
will surely, be made, before the issue
is laid; and to this end the Morning
Astorian today offers the contrast, as
As to the council, it will, in all
probability, be claimed that the mem
bers thereof, stand for all the taxable
wealth of the city and should not be
segregated, but for once, as a means
of balance the weights of responsibil
ity in the premise, this presentation
is made, with the further statement
that the three members of the council
who voted against the bill, may be
said to have represented the compo
site wealth of the city as well as their
colleagues, and spoke for it in the
same way. The five gentlemen who
carried it, and.ther taxable showings,
are as follows, George Kahoth, $7443;
Jens If. Hansen, $602; C. A. Leinen
weler, $505;, W. C. Logan, $3660; H.

had no standing in the matter, other
than to have their bill of exceptions
filed without comment or active con
sideration, and their respective tax
able wealth for 1907, are as follows:

steps will be taken at an early day to
call a mass meeting of the citizens
and property owners of Astoria to

conference, untrammeled by any or

community; and it is likely such a
demonstration will, of necessity,

ROUSING CAMPAIGN TO BE IN
STITUTED FOR COLLECTION
OF POLL TAXES 'TIS SAID
It is likely that an advertisement
will.be inserted in the Astoria news
papers calling attention to the fact
that the annual poll tax is now due
and payable, and that there is an
alarmingly large list of delinquents.
Out of upwards of 4000 men who
arc liable to the payment, hardly 10
per cent have paid up, and it is said
to be not unlikely that arrests will
be made to teach the recalcitrants a
'Dudley Blount, fhe official poll tax
collector, has worked early and late
and has "struck" nearly everybody,
but in many instances he has met
with a stony stare and the marble
heart instead of that generous and
open-hearted expression of "loose
ness" which often characterizes
these same men in other financial
dealings. The law says the tax must
be paid. It provides for arrest and
punishment in case of delinquency.
At all events new life and vigor are
to be put into the campaign of col
lecting the poll taxes, and hence if
the citizen, if between the ages of 20
and 50 years, sees a small but
weighty man approaching him with a
kindly but determined expression on
his face, he might as well "dig." It's
only $3, and the county needs the
money. . But if tbe'same reluctance
