ABOUT THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE
COLLECTING OFFICER AS
WELL AS PEACE OFFICER.
T. D. Taylor, Democratic Candidate,
for Sheriff, has had Four Years
Experience as Chief Deputy.
Tho business of the sheriff's offlce
is complex and difficult. The sher
iff Is not only the peace officer of
tho state, but Is tho collecting officer
of the county. A careful and capa
ble sheriff will save thousands ot
dollars to tho taxpayers, while a con
scientious but Incapable or Inexperi
enced sheriff would add to tho tax
T. D. Taylor has four years ex
perience in the office of sheriff to re
commend him for that position. The
excellent record of the sheriffs office
during tho incumbency of W. M.
Blakloy Is to a great extent tlio
work of T. D. Taylor.
During the period from and in
cluding September, 1894, to and in
cluding March, 1898, the sheriff's of
fice cost $31,863.21. This was under
the management of Sheriffs Houser
and Faxon. During the same length
of time and from and including Sep
tember, 1898, to and Including March,
1902, tho sheriff's office was charged
with the sum of $27,7(59.94, but from
this should bo deducted the sum of
$1270.30, collected by Sheriff Blakley
as mileage and by him turned In to
tho county treasurer, leaving the
net expense of tho sheriff's office
during that time $26,493.64. Sheriffs
Houser and Faxon did not j?ay any
mileage to the county. The differ
ence between tho expenses of the
sheriff's office under Houser and Fax
on and the expenses of the same offi
ce under the present management,
amounting to $4369.57, is worth con
sidering. This is not designed as a reflection
upon tho efficiency of Mr. Houser or
Mr. Faxon. It is merely a difference
in management that effected a saving
to the taxpayers of $4369.57.
The collection of taxes during Mr.
Blakley's administration of the of
fice has been in charge of T. D. Tay
lor. He has at different times per
formed every service required of tho
sheriff, but his particular duty has
been tho collection of taxes.
When Deputy Sheriff Taylor iook
charge of the tax roll or 40 pages
of these tax rolls were covere.
with lands held under tax sales in
the name of Umatilla county. His
energy in looking after this parti
cular feature of delinquency has re
duced the number of pages to 10 oi
Upon the delinquent tax rolls for
the years '93, '94. '95 and '96 he has
succeeded in collecting cash on tax
sales amounting to $1046.58, and upon
sheriff's assessments about $700.00,
and other delinquent taxes amounting
to $7570.97, aggregating a total
turned into tho general fund of tho
county lor taxes levied prior to 1890
of $9316.55, much of which was de
linquent since 1893. This is net,
and entirely exclusive of redemp
tions. When a redemption is made,
it Is made through the clerk's office,
and the money is paid to tho clerk
and not to tho sheriff.
Mr. Taylor is not only a compe
tent accountant, perfectly familiar
with every detail of the books kept
in tho sheriff's office, but Is an able
detective, and no man has greater
qualifications to do the field work of
tho sheriff's office than himself. Tho
people of Umatilla county will bo
making no mistake when they make
him sheriff. When Taylor takes
over tho sheriff's offlco It is safe to
say that tll6 present economical and
elllclcnt system and business meth
ods will be retained. When a thing
is at Its best .why change for "we
know not what?"
FOR OR AGAINST GEER.
Furnish Paper at Salem Threatening
to Defeat Republicans.
The Salem Sentinel led in the fight
in this county to down Governor Geer
for renomlnation. It is supposed to
speak for Mr. Furnish's managers
directly. It says:
"It now devolves upon tho candi
dates for the legislature In Marlon
county on the republican ticket to de
clare themselves. If they are for
Governor Geer, the people want to
know It. If they are opposed to him
It should be known in order that they
may bo elected."
The editor of the Salem Sentinel is
about the only republican newspaper
man .n the city who wears a Furnish
button, and the above Is a pretty
iHaln way of saying to the legislative
candidates you will have to declare
against Geer or be defeated.
Geer carried tho primaries over
whelmingly in this county, and the
antl-Geer people were not shut out
of the republican convention, but
nominateu part of the ticket.
Tills now declaration of Furnish
ized republicanism, from its official
organ at Salem will come pretty near
accomplishing the opposite from its
purpose it will drive them to sup
port Geer for United States senator.
In a free country and In a party
that has always spoken for liberty
and freedom you cannot drive free
men into or out of a party at the beck
of a tyrannical faction no matter it
it is on top for the time being.
The above ought to prove that the
Furnish faction mean to rule or ruin
the republican party, and it has no
future but in the annihilation of suck
Will the republican party be
brought closer to the people by the
success or by tho defeat of Furnish

A Glittering Jewel in Umatilla Coun
ty's Journalistic Diadem.
"Shaniko" Dodd, In his "reply to
Hartman," evidently made tho edi
torial effort of his life. The said effort
will go down in the history of Uma
tilla county Journalism labeled as the
hot air blast, par excellence. The ef
fort? in all its conglomerated embel
lishment, frills, fetters and feathers,
sounds much tho same as tho boy's
essay on the cow, only the boy said,
"a cow is a cow. Can the cow run?
The cow can run." . Then the boy
quit. "Shaniko" Dodd didn't. In hla
effort he referred to the memory of
tho late "William Martin in a treach
erous way, hoping to ring in a sym
pathetic dodge. Then he roamed
around in his misleading calculation:
and brought in tho panic of '93 and
concluded by telling us that wo have
a $40,000 court house that cost u&
$90,000, giving this as a reason In
justification for Furnish charging tho
county 15 per cent per month inter
est. "Shaniko" is a glittering jewel

dem, and wo are proud of him.
Creditable to Chamberlain.
Neither tho Oregonian nor tho re
publican campaign orators have
charged that George E. Chamberlain
over took a, cent of compensation in
public offlco but what tho law clearly
fixed as salary.
Mr. Fulton, who Is making tho
state campaign for Mr. Furnish, does
not pretend that Mr. Chamberlain
has ever taken a dollar in the wav
of graft while In office.
