THE BEST It? THE STATE.
: Traveling men unhesitatingly pro
nounce The .'Dalles the best business
town in the state. The credit of her
merchants is first-class, gilt-edged, and
the salesmen are only too glad to place
orders regardless of limit. There is a
reason for this state et affairs, and it is
easily found. Onr prosperity lies in the
diversity of our industries, To illas
trate, the opening of spring brings us
the fishing season, the salmon catch
bringing us large sums of money. Fol
lowing close on this the wool season
commences bringing in. and putting in
circulation from $500,000 to $750,000.
Before this has ended the strawberry
and other small fruits begin to bring in
money to the extent of $100,000 yearly
in the county. Following this comes a
harvest of summer fruits and large ship
ments of melons. The fall sees large
. quantities of apples, plums, prunes and
pears going out and sending in a bar
vest of coin. At the same time the
wheat begins to roll in, bringing its
quota of money, and during the fall and
winter trainloads of sheep go to Chicago,
and other trainloads of cattle to Trout-
dale and Sound points. All the year
round the . stock shipments bring in
large quantities of money, so that there
is no short season of boom followed by
nine months of stagnation.
The Dalles is in business all the time,
receives money from the industries of
the county all the time, does business
on a cash basis all the time ; and all
. this because her eggs are not in one
basket. Her industries are large and
diversified, and consequently business is
good all the time.
THE INCOME TAX.
We have been asked the question a
dozen times since our last issue why the
income tax, as applied to incomes aria
ing from rents and municipal bonds, was
unconstitutional. The reason given by
the court is that the constitution pro
vides that the government shall not im
pose a direct tax on property, except in
a. certain manner, which is to levy a
certain amount of tax, say, to illustrate,
forty-four million dollars. This, instead
of being levied upon the property of the
entire United States according to value
would be apportioned among the forty
four states, and each would be com
pelled to put up one million dollars.
Dalles Daily Chronic!
The supreme court holds that taxing
the income derived from rents is indi
rectly a tax upon the property, and
therefore is in violation of the constitu
tion. It is undoubtedly good law, and a
proper interpretation of the constitution,
but it is unjust just the same. The way
to correct it, however, is to amend the
constitution. We - believe the income
- tax to be the most just and equitable tax
A that was ever levied, but the fact that it
is just does not alter that other fact that
it is against the provisions of the constitution.
THE LADIES' RULE.
The little town of Florence, in this
state, ie fill right. At a recent election
the ladies put up a ticket of their own
and elected it too, from mayor down.
State Senator Alley was a candidate for
mayor, but bad no show for bis little
while Alley, being beaten by Alice E.
Burns. For town council those elected
are Happie Martereon, Christina C.
Kyle, Penecia Cbristensen and Isabella
Koke ; for recorder, Alta G. Wilson ; or
marshal, Jennie S. Yates. The experi
ment will be watched with considerable
interest by the balance of the state, and
it is hoped the ladies will make a suc
cess of their municipal management.
The marshal may have a pretty tough
job, but yet if she is as good-looking and
thoroughly charming as the average
Oregon girl, it will be a tough citizen in
deed who will not submit to be marched
off to jail by her. Indeed, we fancy the
trouble will be that she will find the
boys getting into mischief just for the
privilege of being marched up to jail and
taken care of by her.
Under the new law the board of med
ical examiners can revoke the licenses
of such members of the fraternity as lay
themselves open to charges of unprofes
sional conduct. While this power was
originally granted for the purpose of
'reaching the class know as quacks, it is
a dangerous power to place in the hands
of any but a judicial tribunal. It is
peculiarly dangerous when placed in the
hands of the medical profession, for it
notoriously is the most jealous and the
most childish in its quarrels of all tbe
learned pursuits. The principal occupa
tion of a large numbers of physicians,
when they are not employed profession
ally, is to rip some other member, of the
profession up the back. The salvation
oj the fraternity at large lies in the fact
that the board never can agree long
enough to put up a job on thier fellow
members. - .
The moral wave in Portland has run
its course. The "Open Door" has re
ceived one inmate, and whom she is no
body knows. The gamblers and girls
who were arrested were all discharged,
and the curtain has fallen, to rise again
on the final act, which is the paying of
the bills by the county, which will prob
ably amount to $1,500 or $2,000. The
Portland papers very frankly say that
the whole scheme was concocted by the
officials for the purpose of making fees.
The Oregonian says there will be an
unusually good demand for apples for
export. Well, Wasco county can do her
full share towards supplying that de
mand, and in a few years can furnish a
shipload for the crowned heads ot Eu
rope, provided the crowned heads have
a taste for apples.
Attorney G. W. Barnes and wife, of
Prineville, celebrated tbe 25th anniver
sary of their marringe last Wednesday.
They were the second couple united in
marriage in tbe Ochoco country, that be
ing the name by which the present ter
ritory of Crook county was known 25
years ago. There was no one to perform
tbe ceremony nearer than the Warm
Spring agency, where a Presbyterian
minister was located, who by tbe way.
when Mr. Barnes and his bride-elect ar
rived at the agency, had just returned
from The Dalles, where he bad been
under arrest on a charge of gambling.
On the morning of April 3, 1870, sad
dling up two ponies, George, who was
then 21 years of age, accompanied by his
best girl, Miss Generva Marks, his pres
ent wife, struck out for Warm Springs,
over an Indian trail, a distance of 50
miles, to be joined in wedlock. Arriving
at Deschutes river, they picketed their
horses, hired an Indian to row them
over the river in a canoe, and proceeded
on their way afoot. The ceremony per
formed, their journey home was begun,
facing a pelting rain during the entire

tion of the deranged
organs and functions,
it builds the flesh up
to a safe and healthy
pleasantly and nat
urally. The weak,
emaciated, thin, pale
' ana puny are made
strong', plump, round and rosy. Noth
ing so effective as a strength restorer
and flesh maker is known to medical sci
ence; this puts on healthy flesh not the fat
of cod liver oil and its filthy compounds.
It rouses every organ of the body to ac
tivity, purifies, enriches and vitalizes
the blood so that the body feels refreshed
and strengthened. If you are too thin, too
weak, too nervous, it may be that the food
assimilation is at fault. A certain amount
of bile is necessary for the reception of the
fat foods in the blood. Too often the liver
holds back this element which would help
digestion. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery stimulates, tones up and invig
orates the liver, nourishes the blood, and
the muscles, stomach and nerves get the
rich blood they require.
