Kan TChoKeep a Clean Orchard
In Oregon Is the One Who
Snffera af oat
Mr. O. Lownsdale writes to the Orego
nian from Lafayette to make some self
evident and Btriking facts public, re
specting the pest-ridden orchards of
Oregon, from which w'e quote:
"In your report of the house proceed
ing? at Salem on Monday, I note with
surprise the remarks bf Mr. Upton crit
icising the Coon horticultural bill. Mr.
Upton is reported as saying that the
bill would cause three-fourths of the
orchards in the state to be dug up and
burned. It would seem, if three-fourths
of the orchards of the state are in a peBt
ridden and diseased condition, that it
ould be the best thing if they-were dug
jip and burned, root and branch. The
man wrio keeps a clean orchard has
nothing to fear from . a stringent law
against, fruit pests. All others should
be compelled, to' abate the nuisances
they maintain. It would be simple jus
tice to those who have planted large or
chards and who are striving to keep
them in' a healthy condition were these
pest-ridden hotbsds put out of existence.
And it would entail little Ios9 on any
individual; for of what use are the old
lousy orchards about which Mr: Upton
is so solicitous?
They are worth simply what they
would bring for firewood, and wood is
very cheap in the country. If Mr. Up
ton is a horticulturist he knows that
from a financial view-point such . or
chards are utterly valueless, as they pro
duce absolutely no sound fruit." They
are intolerably and injurious nuisances
that render impotent the efforts of ener
getic planters who etrive to keep their
orchards on a healthy and profitable
bnsis. The' remark of philanthropic
Ford that the farmers should be pro
tected frpm V these horticultural fellows"
was characteristically' cheap.. " Farmers
have no contentions with fruit-growers,
and have nothing to fear from them.
"These horticultural fellows" are the
leading fruit-growers of the state. They
are the men who are striving to build up
an industry which will shortly rank
every other industry in the state',-and
which it is the duty of the state to foster.
- ine minions ol trees that will come
into bearing within the next five years
in Oregon will add millions of dollars
to the product of the state. It would
seem, then, that the planters of new
and dean orchards, who comprise nine'
Vtenths of the fruit-growers of the state,
pre entitiea to some consideration. As

On Thursday President Harrison sent
to the house a message dealing with the
importation of . foreign goods" to 1 the

discussed at length the treaty obliga

out of the provisions of article 29, treaty
of Washington, and arrives at the con
clusion that article 29, treaty of AVash
ington, has been abrogated ,and even if in
force there is no law extant to execute it.
When in forco th'e treaty imposed no
obligation upon the United States to use

Therefore, treaty or no treaty, the

sealed cars when they cross our border
is, and always has been, one to be set
tled by our laws according to our con

them. That such practice is inconsist
ent with tho safety of the revenue stat
utes ' relating to the transportation of
merchandise between the -United States
and British posessions should be subject
to revision. .'. .
The treasury regulations had given
these laws a construction and scope the
president did not think, was contem
plated by congress. A policy adapted
to the new condition growing; in part
out of the construction of the Canadian

business placed upon a-basis more juot

The Combined Repeal of Mortgage Tax
and Dednetlon for Indebtedness.
Salem, Feb. 3. The - house today
passed a combined repeal of the mort-
Ugage tax law and deduction for indebted
ness clause, ana, witn tne poll oi me
senate previously printed, it is undoubt
edly destined to go to the governor.
The question was taken up about three
o'clock, Law ton's . famous bill having
been reached, for ..its." third reading.
Ford moved to recommit for the purpose
of having the committee strike, out all
provision repealing the mortgage tax
law. ; Nickell and others asked for a call
of the house. This was ordered, and the
absentees were duly rounded in, except
ing Iuuian, and Brown of .Douglas, who
were absent on sick leave. ' The effect
was practically a pair, -as Brown opposes
and Inman favors the repeal-.' After
Ford's motion to recommit had been
voted down by a vote of 24 to 34, the
vote on the bill was promptly, reached,
and resulted: " : ' :.."--,

Ewan, Merritt, Miller, Myer, Nickell,
Sheridan, Staats; Upton, Wilkins, Wil
kinson 22. Brown, of Douglas, and
Inman were absent. -
The vote developed several interesting
features. Gowan and 'King, who had
originally favored Ford's motion to re
commit, now supported the combined
repeal, showing that they would ' have
preferred to repeal the exemption clause
separately. 'During the vote some" ex
planations were made. . Ford voted
against the bill, he said, because, while
he favored abolishing deductions for in
debtedness, he was opposed to repealing
the mortgage tax law, which would deny
to taxation one-sixth of the assessable
property in Marion county. Geer said
he thought the experiment was worth
trying, as things could not be worse.
His remarks were very felicitous and
brought out quite a burst of applause.
Northup thought the time for the law's
going into effect was too soon, as the
people should be allowed to adjust
themselves to the new conditions; but
as an amendment of ' such purport had
been voted down in the committee of the
whole ho should have to vote for the
measure in its present form, believing it
the best available. Another interesting
thing is that three members of the pres
ent house were members in 18S2 and
helped to frame the mortgage .tax law.
They were Keady, Ford and Nichols.
Keady and Nichols now vote to repeal
it, aud Ford to continue it.
