t - THE PORT OF COLUMBIA:
"What seeu8 to be a new scheme of
Portland to defeat an open Columbia
river, has been mapped out by the Ore
gonian as a plan for an open river; - but
it will not become a popular plan by any
means. Perhaps we should call it by
the name given to it by the Oregonian
a''scheme." It says:
A new scheme is on foot to secure the
opening of the Upper Columbia to navi
gation. It is proposed to apply to the
legislature to create a commission hav
ing the same powers in regard to re-
moving the obstructions at the dulles as
the Port of Portland commission has in
regard to improving the Lower Coluuv
bia and Willamette rivers. The dis
trict it is proposed to tax for the im
provement is to include all the counties
along the upper river, and probably
those also which will be directly bene
fited by the river being opened. The
scheme is not matured vet, but the
above will give an idea of what is pro
posed. The citizens of the counties to
be included in the district to be taxed
would probably take more kindly to the
scheme if it were so arranged that the
city of Portland should stand the cost of
the improvement, and doubtless an
effort will be made to secure some such
arrangement if the plan is ever carried
. The last clause in the above paragraph
should be read over again. "The citi
zens of the counties to be included
the district to be taxed," as well as the
citizens oiaii vregon ; nave long ago re
alized that there is nothing to be ex
pected from Portland, unless Portland
gets the lion share from the investment;
and further, that Portland has never
"taken kindly" to any scheme except
the Oregon Transcontinental scheme.
That was a bitter experience. It cost
Portland from $3,000,000 to $8,000,000
. "out of pocket," a blind pool as it were,
to help railways and nothing else. No,
the Inland Empire has 'learned to ex
pect nothing from Portland in the shape
of influence or anything else, to-assist
in opening up the Columbia river to free
navigation from its source to the sea.
In the above paragraph the big daily in
timates plainly that Portland is not
built in a way to lend its aid toward the
development of the water routes of the
interior. "The scheme is not matured
yet," says our Big Brother, and we
would suggest that tax paying citizens
will not "takekindly to the scheme"
tinder any circumstances with Portland
left out.- We have had a taste of that
before, and often ; Portland was to take
the cargoes of Inland Empire products
from the foot of the state portage rail
way at Cascade Locks in 1891-92, after
The Dalles people taxed themselves to
put the freight on to the portage railway
from this city. Did she do it? No ! and
The Dalles people were compelled to
.make another assessment upon them
selves .and complete the line. -The
'Oregonian means what it says. Portland
"believes in the railways ignores the
- river don't want it improved ; thinking
that the railways will center business in
the consolidated city for the benefit of
Portland exclusively. The people of this
great Columbia basin want to see the
-river opened, for cheaper rates of freight.

.Multnomah county, has a plan which

fund of over $700,000 was converted to
the New York state treasury, has
directed attention to the advantages of
an inheritance tax, and our legislators
when they convene at Salem next week
might consider the application of a simi
lar law in Oregon with the effect of bene
fiting the state's financial condition and
lifting a load from the shoulders of
struggling taxpayers. The income tax
has many advocates, but it is obviously
more difficult of enforcement and sub
ject to, imposing inequitable burdens
through concealment and false returns.
The tax on inheritances is based on the
theory that the right to transmit prop
erty from one generation to another is
not natural nor for the best interests of
the conn try,, but should be subject to
state control. . The constitutionality of
' such a law has been repeatedly affirmed
bv the courts. It is applied to the in
heritances of $10,000 or over, and the
. rate of tax is from one per cent, upward
These are mere details, however, which
while applied to one state with good re
sult, niicht not conform to the views of
: the legislators of another ; but this law
where in operation, is strongly indorsed
and there is no reason why it should not I Block,
