THE TAXATION QUESTION.
While acknowledging the Justice of
Olio Astorlan's position that taxation
In Clatsop county 1b excessive, there
are a few people In the city who, for
the purpose of gratifying some personal
enmity, are endeavoring to frown
down the present movement in the di
rection of a reduction of taxes. The
wrgument UBed by one of these indi
viduals Is that any unfairness is per
missible so long as certain property
owners are impoverished. It does not
matter that men who are admittedly
good citlzenB in every particular may
also be beggared; it mattea not that
the entire city and county be the suf
ferers; make the taxes go high that
this malignant jealousy con be ap
peased, and then perhaps the disgrunt
led ones will be satisfied. The Astorl
an does not defend tax evasion, and
believes that every dollar rightfully
due the city for taxes and street Im
provements should, and will be collect
ed, but because there are a few men
who wish to avoid bearing their share
of the public burden is a poor reason
to advance in support of the stand that
the community whole should be made
to suffer. In view of Judge McBrlde's
recent decision it seems clear that the
city's funds can be greatly increased
by the collection of the cost of certain
street improvements, and in all like
lihood the city attorney Is alive to the
A PKOPHET OF EVIL.
The Cathlamet aozette naturally
feels aggrieved that the days of the
river pirate are over. It looks with dis
favor on the good feeling which pre
vails between the Astoria salmon pack
ers and fishermen. It is doubtless sur-
prlBed that our packers have been able
ti dispense with the "combination,"
which this season would have poured
money into the pocketB of up-river
and Washington cannerymen at the
expense of the old-established, well- or
ganized concerns in Astoria. The Ga
zette attempts the roll of the prophet
Jeremiah, and deals out disaster in
"Astoria has been a canneryman's
itraveyard for many, and when the
season of 1893 Is closed the chances
tn o that several more relics will be ad
ded to the heap."
Our contemporary should refrain
from these doleful predictions. If It
would visit our busy canneries it would
be cured of such misgivings. It would
there, see contented fishermen receiving
solid gold for their salmon whether
trade is dull or otherwise. Instead of
the scanty market which the scat
tered, canneries on the tipper river pro
vide, the flshemen here can take their
choice of seven solvent, independent
canneries whose label are known and
valued in tho world's markets. If As
toria, be "the, wuiiu'i'ymun's erave
yard" it is an uncommonly lively one
just now. A good deal of money has
been mode and a good deal lost in
salmon packing here, but the business
was never on & firmer basis than at

In a public lfclter, Senator Dolph sets
at rest, for the present, the expectation
that settlers in Clatsop county and
eleewhere will ue refunded the excess
of J1.25 per aero which they paid on th
assumption that they were buying
homesteads contiguous to railroad
lands. As these lands have since re
verted to the public domain, the st
tiers are, in equity, entitled to hav
tna JJ1.25 per acre refunded. But It
seems that equity dees not alway
prevail In congress. Senator Dolph
"Now as to the facts concerning th
proposition to refund this $1.25 an acre
to settlers who have paid the niaxi
mum ratte within forfeited railroad
grants. During the Fifty-first congress
I Introduced a bill for that purpose
At the first session of the Fifty-second
congress I secured the report, and re
ported from the senate committee on

The tumble in rates which the Great
