Taxation of Land.
The Benton Ltadei- asserts that
land is assessed at its full value
or words to that effect. "Yc know
of land assessed at one-third its
cost and one-third what the owner
would take for it. We know of a
-block sold last spring in Portland
for 12,500 that stands assessed at
$1,500. We are infonne 1 that
city property is rarely taxed at
more than one-fourth its value,
and it is notorious that farms worth
$25 to $40 an acre are assessed at
$5 to Slo. It really seems only
fair to own that land and all real
j estate is only taxed on one-third
j to one-half the money value the
owner places upon il. That be
ing so, the man who loans money
naturally objects to having to pa
tax on all his money when the
landholder does not pay tax on
nearly all his land cost him or that
he would sell it for. Another fact
is this: In some counties taxes
are $1.50 on $100 and in others
$3.50 on the same sum. The
stranger who comes to Portland
and is told that taxes are $3 on
the hundred is astonished. He
need not be if he learns in reality
taxes are not much, if any, over $1
on the hundred in Multnomah
county, because property there is
not assessed to average at more
that one-third ita value. It would
look better and be more reasona
ble and honest if property through
the state was assessed at its full
cash value, as the law directs. If
that were the case taxes would be
lower to correspond, and the same
property would pay the same tax
as it does now. Willamette, Far
mer. Discussing the scheme of build
ing a railroad from Astoria via
Clatsop plains and Tillamook bay
to the Willamette valley, the On
ffonian says: "That this region
is but sparseby settled now is no
objection at all to the scheme, for
there will be no trouble in filling
up a country so well favored.
Three years ago scarce twenty
families lived within the range of
the Pend d'Oreille division of the
Northern Pacific railroad, and last
year the local passenger business
alone of the division paid its
whole operating expense. To cut
across the mountains from Tilla
mook bay, however, would be to
leave half the loaf untouched.
The Nestucca, Salmon and Siletz
rivers, further south, are rich in
varied resources, and could soon
supply an important traffic. To
extend the road south to connec
tion with the Oregon Pacific at
Yaquina bay would by no means
be a bad scheme, independent of
the facilities which such connec
tion might afford for shipping
wheat from the center of the val
ley direct to deep water at As
toria. The timber resources of
this region, alone, would furnish a
railroad with business for several
