The Dalles Daily Chronicle. The only Republican Daily Nempapei n Wasco County. TUESDAY, MARCH 2.J, 1897 EASTERN OFFICE 230 to 234 Temple Court, N. Y. City. E. KATZ, Agent. 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.
