Section 10 of Article eleven of
the constitution of Oregon reads as
' follows: .
"Section 10 No county hall
create any debts or liabilties which
snau singly or in iue BagieuaiB ca
i 1 1 - i . .
ceed the sum of $5,000, except to
, s suppress insurrection or repel inva
sion; but the debts of. any county
' at the time this constitution takes
efrVr. shall Via rlisrAfrarfierl in psti
' mating the sum to which such coun
ty is limited."
On each ballot supplied for the
voter to cast at the state election
in June will be the words: "Muni
cipal Indebtedness Amendment."
If the elector votes "No" on this
faljguafy as quoted above
jA theconstitution ; of' the state.
;But, if, he votes "Yes? it will mean
r to change that provision , bo . as to
read as follows: : ,
"Section 10 No county, city,
town, school district or other muni
cipal corporation shall be allowed
to. become indebted in any manner
or for any purpose to an amount,
. including present existing indebt
edness, in the aggregate exceeding
five per centum on the value of the
' taxable property therein to bo as
certained by the last assessment for
sta'te and county taxes previous to
the incurring of such indebtedness."
- It will be well for every voter to
carefully- consider before voting as
to, whether they wish to make more
clear the way for officials and man
agers who may be hereafter elected
to govern the affairs of our counties,
cities and school districts so- they
may still create larger aggregate in
debtedness against their respective
municipalities as additional burdens
to encumber and oppress the tax
payers. Under the provision of the
constitution, as it now stands, the
courts have so construed thisprovis
ion that it permits the counties es
pecially to . issue their county war
rants to pay all officers salaries,
jurors fees and the necessary ex
penses provided by law for conduct
. ing the courts and paying the nec
lessary running expenses of the
county where the law provides for
ibut all debts contracted wholly
-within the discretion of the county
court is restricted to within the lim
itation of the $5,000, and under
these limitations many of the coun
ties have become involved to extrav
agant sums- If the amendment
proposed shall carry, it would per
il; Benton county to incur without
riy restriction an indebtedness; of
131,263; school district No. 9,
ich includes Corvallis, could be-
5 and the city of Corvallis could
owe -the sum of $27,640. Other
towns and school districts in the
' ' state could be forced in debt in like
proportions, according to the respec
1 tive amounts of their ' assessable
property. Interest bearing bonds
and warrants ot municipalities are
becoming favorite classes of securi
ties for very large numbers of in
vestors who seek them to place their
money on interest." Efforts to open
wide the means of permitting muni
cipalities to float larger volumes of
interest bearing debt if often urged
t J..1 V - l a l il
vy. ucaiera wuu wibh luemurge meir
chances to deal in that class of secu-
r'tiea. This paper does not know
or .have any assurance whether the
"invement to amend the constitution
as 'sted is pronrgeJ by such
causes, but it is difficult to see any
reason why the constitution as it
now. stands is not better for the
good of the whole people than the
proposed amendment. Why do
the farmers, merchants, and other
business concerns want the consti
tution of the state so amended as
to permit all counties, school dis
tricts and cities to create indebted
ness to excessive amounts, in order
that they and their posterity shall
bear the burden of taxation to pay
it? The amendment named, if car
ried, means further opportunity to
lay additional burdens upon busi
ness men, farmers and all those
carrying the burdens of . taxation, in
order that the tax-eater, the specu
lator and promoter of booms and
fictitious values may better thrive.
The constitution as it now stands
on that subject is better suited tor
the prosperity of our country.
Large interest bearing public in
debtedness leads to increased arid
excessive taxation. , It is common
practice to advertise for and invite
imigrants to call and settle among
us. Before they conclude to remain
they inquire carefully as to the
amount of the public debt and the
rate of taxation. If they find these
items excessive and carelessly re
garded tney move on. lnere are
several other constitutional amend
ments proposed to be voted upon in
June, which it will be well for the
voter to carefully consider the effect
of before voting.
GROWING VOLUME OF MONEY.
. The pr capita man ought to be
happy, says the St. Louis Globe
Democrat. For each person in the
United States the amount of money
in circulation is $26.12. In 1896
the figure was $21.53. An increase
of over 20 per cent in the per capita
within four years,- making due
allowance for increased population,
snouid satiety anyone except a
populist who wants paper money to
trundle around by the wagon load.
More than $2,000,000,000 of money
are now circulating in this country,
the increase in four years reaching
$492,000,000. All these dollars are
recognized throughout the world as
equivalent to gold. Four years
ago the cold circulating in the
United states was $489,000,000,
JNow it is !hoo,uuu,uuj, an increase
of 60 per cent. . Has silver fallen
back? Not a bit of it. The
amount of silver and silver ceitifi
cates in circulation has increased
in four years'from $558,000,000 to
$631,000,000, For the first time the
money t in' circulation has passed
the $2,000,000,000 mark, and every
dollar is worth 100 cents in gold.
Here is a republican triumph of
great magnitude, so largo in fact,
that the - democratic papers never
refer to it. They advocated free
coinage as the only road to an in
creased volume of money. But in
less than four years alter the Chi
cago platform -was offered to the
people a3 the true system of finance
the circulation has increased by
nearly $500,000,0C0. Tiie para
mount democratic issue in 1896
Was, as events have demonstrated,
a huge blunder, an absolute rever
sal of everything that could insure
the prosperity of the country. . It
takes nerve in the presidential can
didate who led that cause to come
forward again and offer his views
on public questions as "worthy of
confidence. Sound judgment in a
leader is essential. If he has been
indentified with a radical eiror, one
proved beyond question, he cannot
be trusted to point the way in other
issues. What Bryan declared was
the worst financial policy is unmis
takably the best.
That fusion state convention at
Portland was an odd contrivance.
Notwithstanding its avowed aver
sion for banks and banking and its
protestations of admiration for and
devotipn to the heroes of the 2nd
Oregon, it turned down Captain H.
L. Halh of that regiment and nom
nated Banker Daly for congress.
During the ; voyage home from
Manila, Admiral Dewey was ban
queted at every port touched. His
favorite toast was: "The president
of the United States, William Mc
Kinlev; may he be re-elected."
There may be mora method in the
admiral's apparent madness than
som9 people imagine.
Here is an opportunity for the
women suffragists: Pass the meas
ure granting the right of franchise
to women, and run Hobson for
For Chief of Police.
I desire to announce that I shall be a
candidate for re-election to the office of
chief of police at the Corvallis city elec
t oa occurring on May 21st. I desire in
this connection to tbank the citizens
for the encouragement I have received
in the performance of what I conceive to
ba my duty as ehief of police.

UNDER THE HAMMER.
Tie City of Eugene 'Was Sold Monday for
$1.500 Cost ll,O0O.
The 9tem wheel steamer City of Eugene
was sold by united states marsnat
Honser yesterday, to satisfy a large
aggregation of claims against her, says
Tuesday's Telegram, and the first chap
ter in the career ot that erstwhile prom
ising river craft is closed. The sale was
made at the foot of Jofferson street where
the boat is now moored. Three Port
land men, B. F. Cauley, the hotel man ;
Tom Nordby, of the Shaver Transporta-
tion company, and Ole Olsen, the drum
mer, were the purchasers, and the price
paid was $1,500.
But one other bidder was present at
the sale, an agent of Jacob Kamni. It
was expected that there would be a
lively contest for the possession of the
boat, but the opposition failed to develop
It was said previous to the sale that
Jacob Kamm would be willing to offer
$2000 for her.
Claims aggregating over $4000. were
lodged up against the boat. They were
for labor performed, material furnished
etc., and ranged from a few' cents, each
to as hieh as $500 and over. The uraft
has been tied up since February, await
ing a settlement of the suit.
A stock company of about 60 persons
residents of Eugene and vicinity, owned
the City of Eugene. She was built in
March, 1899, and made her first trip from
Portland to Eugene, April 15. She was
made of extraordinary light material,
and only drew 11 inches when loaded.
Her light draught enabled her to ascend
the waters of the .Upper Willamette
where the opposition boats were greatly
disadvantaged. Hsr length is 131 feet,
and breadth 27 feet, and her cabin ac
commodations are sufficient for 30 pas
sengers. A common, firebox boiler- is
provided for her, and the engines are of
ordinary grade, enabling her to make
the round trip from Portland to Eugeae
in four days. Her original cost' was
Josiah Bachelder designed the hall,
and Captain James L. Smith eommanded
herJnannXiray Jr,,-Wfia engineer, and
AT Kirkland was purser for the first two
months, when Isaac Gray, Sr., succeeded
him. The crew consisted of 17 men,
when working double shifts. '..
Bad btitSuss . management and a
Streak of hatd luck combined to put the
boat on the down run. All went well up
till July 1 of last year, when the craft
ran on a sunken log om the way between
'Albany and Corvallis and sank: It cost
$1000 to raise her, and from then on ill
luck met her at every turn. The water
got so low that operations ' had to be
ceased at times, and business generally
was no longer to be had. ' .
Witts the Banner.
In the contest between the schools for
the banner of attendance for the month
closing on the 10th of April, District No.
93 won the same with a per cent of at
tendance of 99. The advauced room of
the Dusty school had the highest attend
ance, it being perfect. Owing to a rule
established by tho superintendent, a
school after winning the banner for three
successive months, cannot win the same
on the fourth month even if they make
the highest attendance. The following
is the record for the month : District No.
23 (advanced room), 100 per cent, No.
93, 99 p. c. ; No. 59, 97 p. c; No, 79, 95
p. c. ; 26, 95 p. c. ; No. 23 (primary
room), 93 p. c. ; No, 1, 90 p. c. ; No. 25,
80 p. c; No. 51, 75 p. c. District No. 50
having won the banner for three succes
sive months has been given -a. County
Roll of Honor, t framed. Miss Leona
Cain taught during two of the months
and Miss Louise Lenenberger the other
