OUR PI RSI' Rl!PIlRUNt)UM
The people of tlie state have
nvvnketied to lite fact that the Inst
legislature iasscl some bills not
in the general interest of the groiv
inc industries of the state. One
of these is known as the IMdv bill,
and while it affects nil corporations,
local and forcien, it is aimed
estiecially at the mining interests.
The bill imposes a specially oner
ous tax on the capital stock of our
ruining companies, regardless of
its market value of the projwrty in
addition to the state, county, city
and sd ool taxes which our mines
are now paying on their machinery,
b tidings and property. This law
will put out of business the small
mining and oil companies of the
state who are struggling to develop
our resources. "The large producers,
who are paying already large taxes,
also are protesting against this bill
as an unjust measure, and eastern
capitalists say they will hesitate
a long time before investing in
Oregou mining companies under
such a law, as there are plenty of
other mining states which impose
110 such restrictions.
There is another reason why the
mining men, real estate and incor
porated mercantile firms object to
this bill, and that is we are now
taxed to the limit in Oregou, and
the public gift to the Lewis and
Clark fair is all we can stand. Hut
not content with this, our great and
wise law makers, having cinched
our mining industries, turned about
and threw away $165,000 to begin
the work of building a portage rail
road at the Dalles which will event
ually cost to put in operation nearly
half a million dollars, in face of the
fact that the Federal Government
sow has begun work 011 a canal
between the Dalles and Celilo, solv
ing the transportotion problem in
the only feasible manner, and the
'S4.000.000 is ready and available
for the enterprise. Under present
methods it will take six. or eight
years to get the portage railroad in
operation and by that time the
engineers say they can probably
have the canal finished. Why. then
overtax our miners and the people
generally and absolutely waste
