The Puerto Rican tariff bill passed
the senate Tuesday by a vote of 40
to 31. The principal speech of the
day was madefcy Mason of Illinois
against the measure. His remarks
concerning the "fever tit war which
is upon the administration", are
highly amusing in the light of his
own lurid attitude just ' before the
declaration of war with Spain. . :
The ticket nominated , by the
democratic and populist county
convention at Albany, Wednesday,
has the merit of being fair at least.
Beginning with county judge, which
office" fell to the populists, . each
alternate officer named was given
to that party. Thus the democrats
named the sheriff, recorder,- school
superintendent and surveyor, while
the populists chose candidates for
clerk, treasurer, commissioner and
coroner, as well as county judge.
Will Benton county democrats con-
cede as much? .- - " J
If the people think it proper to
caaeethe district attorneys salary of
the second judicial district reduced
from $4000 per year they should
make a streunoua effort at the next
legislature to have it so reduced,
for the reason that those interested
in keeping the salaries of public
officers high, claim that the in
cumbent elected to an office when
the salary is at a certain figure has
some kind of a vested right in the
salary whereby it would be in bad
faith to reduce the salary during
his term; which claim exists in
imagination, but not in law; yet
the same parties , never think it
improper to raise a public salary
to take effect during the term.

for the second judicial district was

ia-wing the term it will be
proper for ths next legislature to
reduoe the salary to at least half of
the amount and the Beveral county
conventions should so instruct their
several members at the legislature.
They should also be instructed to
reinact the free bill which existed
under Hills Code just prior to the
time when the county officers were
salaried, so that the parties employ -ing
the county officers shall pay
the fees to the officers and they turn

In announcing himself as candi
date for the office of president of
the United States, Admiral Dewey
cheapens himself in the estimation
of his countrymen. His achieve
ments in Manila bay filled his meas
ure of greatness to overflowing and
his'name was inscribed on - Fame's
' proudest pinnacle. He displayed
shrewdness by holding himself
.. for months from the eager arms of
his countrymen, for since his arri
val home he has steadily lost cast
with those who are ever looking
for a new bauble. . Dewey is our
: naval hero and sober-minded peo
ple who delight to honor him for
his noble deeds and forget his short
comings, will only feel sympathy
for him in his latest display of
weakness. Let us repeat what we
said last December: "But yester
day the name of Dewey awed the
American people; aow, none so
poor to do him reverence.. No man
has stood the test of public scrutiny
like William McKinley."
Needed Tax Reform.
Cobvallis, April 3, 1900.
Union-Gazette: I have been
asked to state what tax reforms are
needed, and what might be done in
that direction by the legislature.
This article refers to the whole
state and not to any particular
The reforms needed, include a
general reduction of public expenses,
and a system which will be admin
istered, for the least expense, and
to lasuie equality and uniformity,
between the several classes of tax
payers. How to accomplish this has been,
indeed, a problem. The public ex
pense could, and ought to be re
duced in many particulars. There
is a great waste and some scandal
on account of the clerk hire abuses
which have grown up in the legis
lature. There has been an enor
public leak through the state
v .J , i
printing office., : There have been
expensive boards of commissioners,
without which the state would bo
There are a number of tax con
suming luxuries indulged in by the
state and its officials, which do not
benefit the general taxpayer, and
which beit.g so heavily burdened
as we now" are, with taxes, seems to
be 'unnecessary and extravagant.
It may be well enough, in tinges of.
universal prosperity, t indulge in
experiments, and luxuries, in keep
ing with uch times; but, in times
like the past several years
taxes have to be met with absolute
privations in other directions, and
when in many cases the property
has actually been sold to pay
taxes, .people could no longer sup
port, then it seems to me, it is high
time to inquire into the causes of
of these high taxes, and if the peo
ple are really a sovereign people,
apply a remedy. -
In many directions there have
been increases of salaries out of
proportion to the value of the ser
vices demanded or performed. The
salary act;- itself,.. while in many
respects excellent, ' operates as a
considerable loss to the taxpayers
in its present form.
Then there has been a constant
tendency of late years to multiply
expenst s, and to increase the
amount : of existing expenses, in
stead of reducing them. Perhaps
this is one of the consequences of
having some things better and
more convenient now than formerly.
The present county court of Ben-1
ton county seems tohave made an
earnest effort to check this growth,
but it as well as all county boards
in the ' state is to some extent
handicapped by the condition of the
It is always hard to shake off
expensive habits, and to return to
original methods of economy; but
this becomes necessary when in
debtedness has to be paid off, and
interest burdens stopped. - 1 -
To make a detailed statement of
the alterations in the tax system,
which it ie believed by the writer,
would contribute to a large reduc
tion in annual expenses to all tax
payers, and also make the burden
somewhat more equal than it now
is between them, cannot be done in
a short, letter. It would require a
long and laborous statement, which
few people would eare to read in
an article of this kind. I will men
tion, . however, that I would like to
Been a bill ia the legislature, which
would make the assessment com
mence in January and end in Sep
tember. Have but one tax roll;
the entire tax history of the county
and cities in one book; columns
used on the original roll to indi
cate delinquencies; the treasurer to.
collect all taxes, and the additions
necessary to his salary, or lees, as
the case might be, be a modification
of the salary ' or fees of the sheriff,
who now collects the taxes.- The
final enforcement of collections
should be a matter of statute, in
positive terms, and decisive in its
results, and the neglect to fulfill its
requirements should work a for
feiture of the office, for it is just in
this one particular that the great
est of the tax burdens'springs from
So far as the present system goes
its weakest point' is in the final col-
now stands uncol-
lected on the Benton
on tne isenton county tax
rolls, since 1883, enough delinquent
taxes to pay two or three times our
county debt. And to make up for
these delinquents, we are now taxed
at double what we would be taxed
had the system been so plain and
positive in the matter of final col
lections, that this delinquency could
not exist. The legislature has tried
to Jielp the counties out, in a very
lame and insufficient manner, by
permitting the county to bid in
the property, but what good does
that do, when, as a fact, the sales
made are from other defects in the
To supply a remedy for existing
imperfections in the tax laws will
require an entire change in the tax
system. The bill I have long had
in contemplation, would result in a
roll upon which no delinquencies
could accumulate. And this evil,
at any rate, would' be removed from
the tax burdens of future years.
The roll should be cleaned up each
year. It ought to be closed in De
comber. The state levy should be
made not later than August. It
could be made then as well as six
months later. The effect of mak
ing the state levy, as now managed,
is to contribute to the invalidity of
the tax sales.
I have desired for a number of
years to get a bill into the legisla
ture, with some hope of its passage,
which would cut down expenses in
a laitre degree, make taxes more
equal and uniform between the sev
eral classes of taxpayers, and make
the matter of valid taxes more cer
tain. As long as you cannot make
a valid sale, just so long will you
have delinquent taxes, or litiga
tion over disputed sales: both of
which result in higher taxes in sue

other pursuits, than such as might
enable them to comprehend this
matter, and therefore, I have not
been able to obtain necessary sup
port and 'if one cannot have support
from the home delegation it is not
likely much support will be found
to initiate and guide through the
entanglements of a legislative ses
sion a hill of so radical a departure
from existing laws as the one I
mention. In order to present and
in some manner assist in tne pas
sage of this bill, it would be nces-
sary to explain its provisions and
show their effect, and to overcome
the opposition which "would be cer
tain to be met. " I "! have been
promised support from some of
my profession in the legislature
for the bill, and it is possible that
the bill could be gotten through
and become a law, and in some de
gree the inequalities so apparent in
the present law be adjusted.

Life of Hep-Poles.
All hop-growers realize the ti.no.
laber and money expended in fre
quent renewing of poles. The wish
is frequently expressed that some
preparation could be discovered to
save this triple expenditure. . Such
a discovery has been made in. Car
bolineum Avenarius. .'-" - -
This is an oily compound for the
preservation of wood. It can ; be
easily applied to green or dry wood
and. will preserve either, without
deterioration, for an indefinite per
iod. Discovered in Germany over
25 years ago, it is successfully used
today all over the world for rail
road - sleepers,: pavements, bridges,
ship . timbers and hundreds of other
purposes. Absolutely effectual in
preserving material under such se
vere usage as this, its protective
value for hop poles, exposed simply
to air and soil, can be readily per
ceived. A single treatment will in
sure them from decay ,dry rot and
vermin (the latter injurious to vine
and pole alike) for ten years and
render sharpening unnecessary for
at least five. This can be safely
guaranteed from successful results
obtained in treating telegraph poles,
in varying climates, subjected to
almost identical exposure. In these
cases Oarbolineum Avenarius, has
always stood the test.
When such facts as these are
presented to the hop grower, argu
ments in favor of using the preven
tative would seem little needed.
Additionally the cost of the article
is light and it can be cheaply ap
plied by any person. This is done
with the brush or, better still, by
dipping the poles into the .liquid.
Purchasers should notice carefully
that the full name "Carbolineum
Avenarius" appears on the package
as spurious imitations are offered
by unscrupulous persons under the
name Carbolineum and other sim
ilar titles, calculated to deceive the
unwary.-- These are as worthless as
the genuine article is valuable. For
