WITH A WHOOPING BIG "IF" IN IT.
To Crroborate Which Cleve Kefu.es to
be Interviewed . by The Ubiqui
A South Bend dispatch of Saturday
states. that the North river farming com
munity in Pacific county, . Wash., is
greatly excited over a supposed 'attempt
to murder an old settler and his family
by poisoning. Isaac Smith is one of the
pioneers of southwestern Washington,
having come to that neighborhood
with his father in 1854. He js well
known and highly respected throughout
Pacific and Chehalis counties. At the
time of the Fredricksenjmurders in 1890,
he was a leading figure in the chase for
the criminals, which led up to the kill
ing of John Rose and his confederate,
Edwards, in Oysterville jail. Since then,
lie has - received several anonymous
letters, threatening vengence for the
part he took in that case. It is claimed
that at various times his well and the
family food have been poisoned, the at
tempts being discovered before serious
consequences ensued. The first of this
week Mr. Smith and the large family
were taken ill with griping dysentery .v
The ordinary household remedies proved
of no- avail, and the condition of the
patients became worse from day to day.
Mrs. . Smith and youngest child are
dangerously sick. Dr. W : Grunnell, of
South Bend now in attendance at
the house, is of the opinion that a min
eral poison has been taken by the family
in their food. He thinks it was corrosive
sublimate, but was summoned too late
to be able to determine with certainty.
Before leaving Washington for Ken
tucky, Mr. Carlisle mailed Mr. Cleve
land a letter accepting the secretaryship
of the treasury. It is said that Mr.
Carlisle accepted the portfolio on condi
tion that he should have the solid eup
port of the administration in his candi
dacy for the presidential nomination in
1896. Mr. Carlisle . is said to- have re
ceived the assurance of good will from
Tammany. He strongly favored Mr.
Murphy for eenator, and urged Mr.
Cleveland not to oppose the latter 's candi
dacy. Mr. Carlisle will have a consulta
tion with Cleveland in New York next
week. President-elect Cleveland refused
to be interviewed on the subject at Lake
wood, N. J., and sent word that he had
nothing to say regarding the story that
Carlisle had written him a letter accept
ing the treasury portfolio on condition
that the administration would support
him for the presidency in 1896.

Where the Stealings Went.
The London Times correspondent in
Paris says that M. Flory, at Wednes
day's examination, estimated the Pan
ama canal company's receipts at 1,444,'
000,000 francs, of which 199,000,000 were
swallowed up by expenses of manage'
ment: 245,000,000 by interest on the
coupons and 550,000,000 by canal opera
tions. Of the last mentioned sum, 107,
000,000 went directly to workmen and
443,000,000 to contractors. Four con
tractors made a profit of 77,000,Q00, M.

Arthur Johnson," seventy-three years

He speaks several languages and has
been a professor in two colleges. In the
booming days of Montana he went there
and acquired $500,000. Bad mining
speculations ruined him.
On the silver question Senator Sher
man says: "It is as well known as any
thing can be that a large majority of the
republican senators, including myself,
are decidedly in favor of a repeal or sus
pension of the purchase of silver bullion.'
They are ready today, tomorrow, or at
any moment to vote for such, a ..repeal.
It is equally well known that not more
than one-fourth or one-fifth of the demo
cratic senators favor such a repeal", they
will resort to extreme measures to pre
vent it. They are openly pronounced
for the free coinage of silver or a contin
uance of the existing laws. The pretense
made that the republican senators would
sacrifice the public interests for a more
political scheme is without - foundation,
and I feel like denouncing it. If the
democratic party will furnish a conting
ent of 10 senators in support of a repeal
of the silver act of 1890, it will pass the
senate within 10 days. - As. for Bayard,
he stands where he has always stood on
financial questions, substantially right,
but acting with a party wrong on such
questions." . .
Open the Willamette Locks.
Salem Journal. The republicans of
this legislature can score a ten strike by
taking up as a party question the open
ing of the locks of the Willamette to the
free use of the people, or at lease to
such use as will merely pay for operat
ing expenses. It is wrong ta leave the
gates of the great river of this great
valley in the hands of a private corpora
tion as a toll-gatherer. Already Sena
tor Raley has taken the portage railway
bill in hand, and if he succeeds in pass
ing that measure-will claim ft as a dem
ocratic victory in behalf of the people.
Gov. Pennoyer shows bow the state will
lose all its rights over the locks of the
Willamette unless they are exercised
now. Will the republican leaders in'
both houses sit idly by and allow their
opponents to steal 'their political thun
der and make party capital by promot
ing these popular measures that appeal
to the favor of the producing masses?
It is the duty of the majority in power
in the legislature to give the people the
second portage at the Columbia, as it
gave the first, and to open the locks and
canal at Oregon city in the name of the
state and : on- behalf .of the people of
Oregon. ' -- -

THE OLD SUBJECT IN A NEW DRESS
Assessor Sears Report Compared With
the Oregonian. . : '
HOW MILLIONS ESCAPE TAXATION.
Why it is That the Chamber of Cos
roerce of Raisins; Such a Dust . ' '
About Indebtedness. .
From the HillsboFO Inoependent. "
In one of the comics recently received
appears a pictured scene within a news
paper den where the editor is surrounded
by great piles of exchanges and bistable
littered with the appliances of his call- -ing,
while he himself is half buried in
the ample pages of a great daily. Before
him stands a well-dressed stranger who
has just entered the sanctum and asks
"What is your circulation?" The editor
looks up with an uncertain air to reply,
"Are you an advertfser or the tax as
sessor?" This picture has a point when
the annual report of Portland business,
as appears in the Oregonian of January
2nd, is read in connection with the re
port of County Assessor Sears made a
few weeks earlier.
The Oregonian is advertiser on- Janu
ary and, when it gives the increase tor
1892 of bank resources at $5,000,000.
The value of new buildings for the year
is put at $7,500,000. Thus in two mat
ters the increase of property in the city
of Portland is over $12,000,000. The
assessor could find an increase over the
valuation of 1891 of $744,825 only.
Verily the stranger in the pieture is an...
advertiser. Again, in further compari
son, two industries are noted..- Banking
resources are placed at $30,000,000. The
amount invested in manufacturing en
terprises is reported to be $30,000,000,
together $60,000,000. Notice -the prop
erty left out in this ectppilation. 1
All real estate except that occupied
by banking and reanafacting institu
tion, all residence property,' the great
brick blocks, the immense merchandise
stocks, the notes and book accounts held
by the merchants and business, men,
the railroad, telegraph and telephone
lines centering there, yet the assessor
could find in the whole county only
$42,552,510. One fortune alone within
the past few days, that of W. S. Ladd,
has been counted at $18,000,000. It is a
low estimate to name $160,000,000 as the
wealth of the city of Portland, while the
remainder of the county will swell this
valuation to $200,000,000, yet the as
sessor could find only $63,834,474 gross.
Thus more than one hundred millions
escape taxation. The chamber of com
merce is raising a great dust about de
duction of indebtedness amounting to
$20,788,056, the utmost limit, and the
mortgage tax law. It is that old cry of
stop thief. Portland, advertiser, is a
great wealthy city, prosperous beyond
its neighbors. Portland, assessed, is a
cluster of hovels in rags, dirt and filth.
Its few who have money for hire are
men of no business capacity and loan
their little surplus on second mortgages
anion insufficient securities that are
worth, according to Lownsdale, repre
sentative burgher, but fifty cents on the
dollar. The picture of the editor and
the caller is real.
