A PUBLIC DEMAND.
At no time in the history of
Oregon has there been so much
railroad agitation throughout the
state as at present is in evidence,
lack of railway facilities more
than any other one thing has
worked to the detriment of the
state and retarded progress.
This is not new , to. readers of the
Gazette, for while this paper has
ever been liberal in its senti
ments, it has, nevertheless, from
time to lime commented on this
particular state need-
At present there seems to be
growing a sentiment against the
Harriman system. Mr. Harn-
man has been among the people,
broke bread and took wine with
them, but said nothing, made no
promises. His attitude in Port
land was not reassuring to the
business men of that city. There
was a vagueness about his utter
ances that gave the impression
that he desired to convey a quiet
ing idea to the public, 'while in
reality he promised nothing.
Is the railroad history of Cali
fornia to repeat itself in Oregon?
For years our sister to the south
writhed in the grasp of the
Southern Pacific, but do as they
would the people of that section
could not free themselves of the
claw&that scratched for blood.
The pound of flesh was not
nougb, was not satisfying. In
Oregon things have not been so
bad, but the development of the
state requires that the railroads
extend their lines.
There is at present no state in
the Union that offers so much to
railroads as does Oregon: In
Central Oregon are large areas
awaiting the advent of a rail
road. Thousands of acres of
land are there, a portion of it
already under the plow, and the
entire product of the country
awaits the company first build'
ing-there a trade worthy any
carrier is to be had for the tak
ing. Who will claim it?
Will Harriman take hold and
force a line here and there as it
is needed? Did his manner of
indirectness when before the
people of Portland recently in
dicate that he ' had plans for
future actions favorable to the
interests of Oregon that he did
not care to divulge? or did it
mean that his company was satis
fied as things are and he would
not place it on record for any
Let Harriman or any . other
railroad man do as they may, the
fact remains that the people of
the State of Oregon are awakening-
to a realization that upon the
pestion of railroads more large
ly than any other one thing
hinges the matter of state de--velopment.
The people are fast
tiring- of a policy whereby all
the benefits go in one direction,
and there is a growing sentiment
in favor of some good, up-to-date
railroad legislation when the law
making- body of Oregon next
convenes in regular session.
Closes Its Doors.
For some time in the past
there has been considerable dis
content on the part of Oregon
lans anent normal schools.. This
was made very apparent during
the last sessions of the legislature
but was made even more promi
nent and conspicuous by the in
Tocation of the referendum dur
ing the sprine. With the Wes
too Normal School things are in
a bai way and is dp--Ts are to be
closed during .1,1 c nning year,
as the following ci.3p.1tch clearly

useless to try longer to secure

&:ust PAY UP.
Many Corporations Owe the State
According to the strict inter
pretation of the corporation tax
law, several hundred corpor
ations will find their corpora e
powers suspended to-day, accord
ing to toe statements made in a
recent dispatch sent out from
Salem, Saturday, unless they
pay their general license fees by
It is said that only about three
fourths of the companies doinrr
business in this state have paid
their tax this vear, and the last
day of the time specified for pay
ment was yesterday, August 14
It is possible that'all corporations
paid yesterday, but it is not prob
able, and it is declared that
number of important corporations
are among those tnat have not
yet paid. .
Section 5 of the corporation tax law
requires that the Secretary of State file
with the State Treasurer on or before
Joly 15, a-statement ot the amount of
license fees due from each corporation
"Within 30 days thereafter every such
corporation shall pay or cause to be paid
to the State Treasurer the license fee
hereinbefore mentioned." Failure of any
corporation to make its annual report or
pay its annual fee for 20 days after the
time specified renders the corporation
liable to a fine. of $109.
section a 01 tne law provides that '"no
domestic corporation, and no foreign
corporation, joint stock; company or
association, which shall have failed to
pay the annual license fee, or any other
tax or fee which shall have become dui
and payable against it, as provided in
this act or any law of this state, shall
be permitted to maintain any suit, action
or proceeding in any court of justice
within this state, while such delinquency
shall continue." ;
Sectioa 10 provides that a plea that
any domestic corporation or foreign cor
poration, joint stock company or assoc
iation has Eot paid any tax or fee re
quired by any law r of this state and
which is then due and payable, m ay be
interposed at any time before trial upon
the merits in any actioa, suit or proceed
ing, and if iasue be joined upon ' such
plea, the same shall be first tried. Such
plea cannot be made at any time by the
delinquent corprat on "
It thus appears from the lauguage of
the statute that a corporation's powers
are suspended whenever a tax is due and
unpaid, but the concern is not liable to a
fine until it has been delinquent 20 days.
The suspension of powers operates as
well in the case of the ordinary property
tax as in the . case of the lice jee tax, for
the statute says, "any tax required by
any law of this state.''
A Gigantic Josh.
Professor J. B. Horner return
ed from Eastern Oregon last Sat
urday, where he had been work
ing several weeks in the interest
of the OAC. Referring to the
Gazette item which stated that
the Professor had lately killed
two deer, he said the announce
ment was a little previous that
he had not hunted nor killed any
deer yet, but he assured the Ga
zette man that on the first of
September he would go into the
mountains and get the two deer
mentioned, at which time he
would have plenty of venison
for all his friends
Inasmuch as the Professor
looks lean and; lank, and no one
can be found who collected any
fine or venison from him, the
Gazette man is of the opinion
1 that the venison story sprung
from a gigantic "josh.
