ABIDE BY THE LAW.
The decision of Judge jN'orthup of
Multnomah county and sonic of the
other countv judges, not to pay over
the state's taxes, is liable to cause
considerable discussion and perhaps
litigation. The existing conditions
show how quickly a bad example
will be followed and how prone the
mind is to palliate and condone un
lawful acts one wishes to do or has
done, by pointing to the fact that
someone else has done the same thing.
The legislature failed utterly to do
its duty! This being taken as the
basis, Judge Northup concludes that
he will utterly fail to do his. The
law requires the counties to pay over
to the state treasurer the state
taxes at a given time. Now it- is
none of the county judges' business
what the treasurer does with it, or
whether the state has i se for it or
not. That is the business of the state
treasurer, who is responsible for the
money when it is paid to him, and
whose receipts is all the counties pay
ing are entitled to. Let us see. Sup
pose the county judges should take it
upon themselves to refuse to obey the
plain mandate of the statute, and re
fuse to pay the state's proportion of
the taxes because the state had no
use for it. What would the county
judges do if the taxpayers should
take the same view of it and refuse
to pa the state portion of the tax be
cause the county had no use for it
and did not intend to pay it to the
state treasurer? Wodkl not the in
dividual taxpayer have as much
right to do this as the county judge
to refuse to pay over the state's por
tion of the money? And then, as
Judge Mays suggests, suppose after
using the state's mono' to pay county
indebtedness, a special session of the
legislature should be called and the
state should need and demand its
money. "What would be done then?
The refusal of those empowered to
make laws to abide by laws already
made was a bad example that has
borne abundant fruit. Let us hope
that the crop will not increase.
REAMS AND MOTES.
The Rev. Kay Palmer, pastor of
the Second Baptist Church, Portland,
last Sunday devoted his time to the
subject, "The Demonizing Influence of
Prize-fighting." We have no doubt
ItcY. Palmer was honest and con
scietious in his opinions, especiallj
when he comircntlcd the maul' words
of the editor of the Oregonian; but
well, there are buts and buts.
When we read Mr. Palmer's fer
vid description of the prize fight wo
could hardly repress the thought,1
"How he would have enjoye.l seeing'
it." The very scent of the battle
from afar caused his nostrils to dilate
are hidden behind it. We venture
the assertion that there is more wick
edncjs taking place in Portland in
one night, more that would make De
cency forever hide her face, than
ever occurred at or followed from all
the prize fights of all the world since
the time when iKneas, llecing from
Troy, landed to celebrate the nation
al games and pitted his cestus
equipped boxers against each other.
The Carson prize fight dumped into
the midst of Portland's "amuscmcuts"
could the latter bo seen together,
would be an island of scab in an
ocean of pus.
The Oregonian today has quite a
long article concerning the setting
apart of Memaloose island for a bur
ial ground for the Warm Spring In
dians, and telling quite a story about
Vic Trevitt and others. The story
is all right, but the Memaloose island
set apart by the secretary of the in
terior is not the famous island where
Trevitt is buried, but one east of The
Dalles near the foot of the rapids.
Dancers of the Grip.
The greatest dangers from La Grippe
is of it resulting in pneumonia. If rea
sonable care is used, however, and
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is taken,
all danger will be avoided. Among the
ten of thousands who have used this
remedy for la grippe, wo have yet to
learn of a einglo case having resulted
in pneumonia, which shows conclusively
that this remedy is a certain preventive
of that dread disease. It will affect a
oermanent cure in less time than any
other treatment. The 25 and 50 cent
