The Matttr or City Assessment anil Citj
7ap in "nj and s5.
About midnight on the 2Sth of last
February the following was passed by a
unanimous vote of the city ceuncil:
Wiigbius, In the year 18S1 a tax was
levied in the city of Astoria for munici
pal purposes, and only about two-thirds
of said taxes have been paid into tho
city treasury, and
ViiKEnAs. One-third of tho amount of
the tax Ivj led is still due and unpaid by
several h rsous in the city and that said
tax payeis refuse and have failed to pay
said tax: therefore be it
ftesolred, That the city attorney be and
he is hereby requested to draft an ordi
nance refunding to the several tar pay
eis the amount of money they have paid
to the city for and on 'account of tax
levied and assessed for and during the
3'etrlsM, and that said ordinance shall
specify that warrants issued under and
by virtue of its provisions shall be taken
by the city treasurer for and on account
of taxes only.
In accordance with the above tho city
attorney drafted an ordinance which spe
cially names every individual who paid
taxes in this city on city property for '84,
and expressly states that the amount
set opposite his or her uamo is re
funded to that person. That ordi
nance was passed on the 12th day of
last month, and went into effect upon
the mayor's signing it next day. A com
mittee of three of the council met yes
terday to make somo changes in the
assessment of various parties on their
city property, fter somo animated dis
cussion with parties who had been cited
to appear and show cause -why thoir
assessment should not be raised, it is
said the committee decided to take no
farther step? toward raising any one'.s
assessment, and to recommend to the
council at its next meeting that it repeal
that ordinance and levy a ten mill tax
for the current year.
The thing appears somewhat mixed. 1
A good many refused to pay their taxes
last year, and didn't jiay them, mid said
they" couldn't be made to pay them, j
The majority seemed to have a little
public spirit and paid tho tax that is
levied to keep things from falling to
pieces. J.o sort ot square tilings, the
council concluded to give back to every
ono that paid taxes in '84 the taxes so
paid, and then levy a fifteen mill tax for
lbS.". For this purpose the ordinance
was pissed, and then ltwafl found that
the assessment of theso parties for '."", in
a multitude of instances, would so como
in as to make it necessary to give thoui j
more for M tnan would be received from
them in "40. For instance, A paid 12
mills on $"5,000 in 81, or J'J; ho
is now assessed at $2,000, which,
at 15 mills, would make his
tax 5&0 this year, so that the citv
would have to give him back . Tho
idea of the committee seems to have been
to raise the assessment on his property j
so that a fifteen mill taxwould just offset i
tho tio he paid the city last year. Then
again it is claimed that the intention
was to so fix it that tho man who got
back what he piid in '81 would be so as
sessed that he would have to pay about J
uirte iiuiisuii wiiat lie wis nssesseu in
6.", but whether he was to be assessed by
what the :iRsessor assessed him at or as
sessed by what tho board of equalization
set the ligure at, or whether the proposed
raise of the committee yesterday was to
bo or v.ould or could bo'tho baso of oper
ation and calculation was and is one
of those things that seems hard to get
The only point that seems to reach out
of this tangle far onough for tho averago
mind to grasp is that tho ordinauc9 giv
iuc back the monevnaid is about to bn
repealed. If it be repealed, then thoso j
who did all tho kicking and refused to i
pay last year, will hao tho rloasuro of j
carrying their point and will no doubt 1
fool "correspondingly superior to tho com-'
mon. ordinary man who went meekly up
ami paiu ms taxes, wneu tuose mat wero
better able to pay wouldn't and didn't.
They get all tho benefits of streets, polico
and whatever (tho Lord knows what,) it
is that we pay taxes for, and it hasn't
cost them a cent; only made it all the
harder on the simple minded folks who
naid for it. To still further mix uti the
mess comes the query: Now that t he j
council has mado a gift to every ono men
tioned in that ordinanco of the sum set
opposite his namo and said ''this S7.S0 is
yours," "that $27.G0 is yours." "tho :
opjiosite your name is yours," can it take
back that gift without tho consent of the
one to whom tho gift was made? The
ordinance was legally passed and is in
foice. "Am I Ami or am I not Ami?"
Tho tax-roll as it stands foots up
about 1,450,003. A ten mill tax would
give about 14,500. To refund the money
and levy a fifteen mill tax, would, it is
thought, yield about 8,000, which, even
if all collected, would entail considerable
reduction in the amount of street work
etc, done next year. There is ono thing
that can't be dodged; and that is that it
costs money to run the city and that
money has to bo raised by taxatien: if it
can't bo raised in nuch a way that the
cost falls equally and pro rata on thoso
who own property the best thing tho city
can do is to disincorporato and go back
to some le.S3 expensive form of govern
ment. The council works for nothing
and its desire is for the general good;
economy is only another name for good
management and it would seem as though
the best courseito pursue would bo to take
tho advice of Davy Creckett: "Bo sure
you" ro right; then go ahead.'' There will
be another council meeting next Tuesday
evening, by which time it is probable
some way can bo devised to straighten
out what at present seems to be a much
mixed state of affairs.
Last Sunday evening Geo. Brown found
tho headless and limbless trunk of n
child on the beach near Young's river
and brought it to tho city. Coroner Boss
held an inquest on tho remains last eve
ning, which resulted in the following ver
dict: "Wo tho jury do find that these
remains aro those of Sara Yorgina Hen
drickson, who was drowned in tho Co
lumbia river on tho 15th day of August,
1SS1, by falling through a trap in the
dock of J. H. D. Gray at the foot of Ben
ton street, in tho city of Astoria." Tho
little girl was between five and six
yearaor age, ana on uio evening men-
noneu wnne piuying wuu some cuuureu
fell through the dock and was never
again seen in life.
tt . innv lw well In br-nr in mind that
mi nnnniinf of rentinfr one-half of his

Adler must vacate one of his stores
by the 15th of July and offers great bar

rare chance to buy cheap. Remember,
for 30 days only.
At an early hour Sunday morning five
of tho prisoners in tho county jail got
out of that place, went down to tho
Astoria Packing company, took Peto An
derson's fishing boat and got away.
Thoir names are Frank Clark, tho "Lono
Star Fisherman,' who mado an assault
on Burk somo timo ago, Matt Clifford,
who was in for larceny, Geo. Smith, Geo.
Thompson and Jno. Chambers tho Jast
three being in for larceny aud vagrancy.
The only reason tho remainder of tho
prisoners didn't get out is because they
didn't want to.
Clark seems to havo been tho leader.
He burned a hole in the floor of his cell,
got out two boulders and wrapped them
in a blanket; then tho bar that holds
the bolts in place in tho north tier of
cells was sprung by means of a cleverly
devised noose from the nearest of two
cells on the right of tho entrance, and tho
broken bar used to spring the door going
into the corridor, tho muffled boulders
being used as wedges. Tho outside doors
offered littlo resistance, and with littlo
additional effort tho gang got their free
dom. Tho remainder of tho men con
fined refused to tako any part in the mat
ter, and to their credit be it said, prefer
red serving the sentence tho law imposed
on them to earning their liberty by
force. If the sheriff and his deputies aro
expected to keep prisoners, they ought
cither be furnished with a place that
cannot be opened with a toothpick to
keep them in or elso given a guard. As
it is me imng is riuicuious. -i.no
only first-class feature of that "jail" is
tho prico it cost. With a little addition
oxpendituro it could be turned into a
good 10,000 chicken coop, but as a jail
it is a monumental failure.
A LIFE OX TIIE OCEAX WAVE.
"Oh ! a life on the ocean wave,
And a home on the rolling deep ;
Where the winds and waters rave.
And the skies their revels keep."
So sang P. Francis O'Brien as he yester
day loaded his trunk on a flat bottomed
skiff and started m the flood tide from
the buo3 depot, where ho had been em
ployed to Pillar Bock. But alas for him
who trusted to tho treacherous element.
A great green wave broke over him be
fore ho got abovo Tonguo Point and up
set his 'craft. Ho clung to it and man
aged to sit up on tho bottom, looking
ruefully at his trunk that bobbed up
serenely and floated ahead of him. First
Officer Kichardson saw tho poor fellow
from tho deck of the Shubrick and or
dering a boat cleared away and went to
his assistance. He was rescued and with
his trunk haided aboard to dry. He
opened his trunk and proceeded to dry
his wearables; spying a book in tho trunk
entitled "A Life on the Ocean Wave," ho
gave it to ono of the crow and sadly
"Oh ! a life on the ocean wave ;
Tho man who wrote it was green
He had never been to sea,
A stunn he had never seen."
For an average of thirl3 years tho
waters below tho junction of tho Snako
aud Columbia rivers havo been at their
highest on tho 14th day of June. The
years 187G and 1830 wero exceptions to
this rale, and in both thoso years tho
front streets of this city wero so flooded
as to necessitate tho removal of goods
from all of the cellars on Front street,
and from mo3t of those on First street.
It is quite truo that thcro has been no
very hot weather as yot, and tho alarm
ists point to that fact as the cause of a
probable freshet. But they overlook two
very salient facts, tho first of which is
that tho fall of snow in tho Cooar d'Alcne
and Owyhee mountains during tho past
winter was lighter than has been known
for years, while tho great amount of
chinook weather during March caused a
great deal of water to go down tho Snako
liver iu that. month that usually goes
down in May or even June. Tho fact
that Snako river had a good boating
stage of water all that month is your
best guarantee thnt Portland will have
no froshet this year. Mercury.
