veritable Santa Claus ships, carrying
- vast sums of money and countless other
Christmas gifts to gladden the hearts
of the folks in the old country; , There
were some : wild-; rushes; down at the
wharves yesterday and today by belated
., gift-senders, and the box which hung
alongside the lst-to-come-ashore gang
' "plank was filled and emptied many times.
.J At the foreign branch of the postoffloe
,'' the clerks worked like beavers, and ap
' predating the desire of the belated ones
la get their Christmas gifts off In time,
sold stamps and received letters for
; ' many minutes after the official closing
. time laid down by the regulations. Extra
trucks and extra help of all kinds had

Though the Volunteers of ' America
are not making any special efforts to:
provide for a feast for the city's poor on
Christmas, this work having been given
over to the Salvation army, - they are
supplying many needy and distressed
people with food, clothes and- lodging,
such work having recently become n
dally routine with- the advent of hungry
and penniless throngs from the North
and South, .
Captain Anderson of the Volunteers
finds more of a demand for old clothes
than he can fill and earnestly requests
all citizens having any garments, bed
clothing or house furnishings of any
description to send them to room!, at
243 Ash street,- or to telephone Hood

Georgt W. Simpson of the mining firm
of Sessions & Simpson, with offices In
the Chamber of Commerce, -In speaking
of the Eddy corporation tax law said:
"The law should be repealed. . It ts
a handicap to the legitimate develop-Bent-f--m4nlng
property; If the law did
not exist the money now paid the state
would be used In opening up mines. The
law will have the effect of driving cap

of companies which-were incorporated
under the. laws of -Oregon and operating
In Washington and California. ' In view
of the unjust taxation we hAve re-incorporated
under the-laws' of, Washington
and California. The Eddy bill has for
Its intention to keep down over-eapltall-satlon
of company's, and to discourage
wild cat schemes. This object Is, how
ever, no taccompllshed, as a faker can
pay . the tax and bang in his office his li

Way to Defeat the Xw.
- "We can defeat the law,, and not-pay
the tax, by Incorporating a trust com
pany with a capital of say $10,000, and
under this cloak oonduct a business of
millions and only ' pay the tax on the
$10,000. I think that this bill should be
repealed or amended. As t now stands
the tax on an undeveloped property is
tho same as that on a rich producer.
Every representative from a mining
district, and all over the state generally
would . be making a good move for the
encouraging of the mining. Industry by
taking action in this mater, as If any
thing in this country should be encour
aged It is the mining bustoss, which Is
as yet in Its infancy, but gives promise
of growing to great proportions if proper
legislation is provided. -
"No tax could belevled on land Until
a patent is granted and title perfected,
as up to that time the property is only
In a prospective stage and . in all in
stances not productive of any returns.
After the mines la developed the state
collects its property tax by assessing
the same. - They ' also have to pay a
property tax of $100 when patent is se
cured. This gives the state returns and
does not place a burden on property that
