The way to build up Dallas is to pat
ronize Dallas people.
Dallas will get another large
sawmill in the near future. The
OnsERVKK is not at liberty to
divulge the plans of the men who
are behind the enterprise, but it is
sufficient at this time to say that
the mill will be built, and that it
will be operated on a scale that
will materially aid the growth and
business of the town. Dallas is
already prosperous and the good
times are just beginning.
Dallas is becoming a railroad
center of no small importance.
The county seat of Polk county
now has connection with the out
side world by three lines of rail
. raid. The Southern Pacific operates
a daily passenger train between
this city and Portland, leaving
Dallas at 7 a. m., and arriving at
7:20 p.m. The Independence motor
connects with this train in the
evening, and carries passengers to
Monmouth and Independence. The
motor also gives the people of
Dallas connection with the West
Side (rain, to and from Portland.
The Dallas & Falls City railroad
leaves Dallas in the morning a few
minutes after the departure of the
Portland passenger train, and re
turns in time to give the Falls City
people connection with the after
noon train to Portland. The Falls
vny train leaves JUanas again in
the afternoon and returns at night
before the departure of the Inde-
penaence motor, liy coming on
this train, and staying in Dallas
over night, the Falls City people
are enabled to catch the early
morning train for Portland. As
the train service is increased, the
mail facilities are also extended
and improved. The Southern
Pacific depot is a busy place these
days, and it is no uncommon sight
to see lour or nve trains in the
yards at one time. Dallas is com
ing to the front at a very satisfactory
TO RUN THE CAMPAIGN
There is probably some truth in
the report that President Roosevelt
would like lo have Senator Hanna
remain at the head of the national
committee and to manage the cam
paign of 1904. The senator is an
able and Domilar man. who has
shown his capability as a campaign
director bv his good work in 1896
and 1900. Probably no man in
the country could have managed
those campaigns better than did
the Ohio statesman. He had the
whole situation at his command
throughout the entire battle in
each year. The Republican party
had confidence in hi ability even
in the campaign of 1896, when he
was comparatively a new man in
politics. The skillful manner in
which he managed the preliminary
work in getting the nomination for
McKinley showed that he was an
adept at the business of winning
and holding the support of men.
Nobody probably could do better
work in this direction in 1904 than
could the present head of the
But, of course, the Republicans
are not restricted to any one man
as a party manager for the coming
campaign. Under any sort of
leadership in the national com
mittee which can be adopted they
have an excellent chance to sweep
the country. It is said that Senator
Foraker would like to take the job
of managing the canvass if Senator
Ilanna should decline. There is

The Southern Pacific Company, of

$197,849,227.40, was among the cor.
porations wnicn niea its annual re
port in the office of the Secretary of
State "Wednesday. The Orecron &
California Railroad Company, with a
capital stock of $19,000,000, also filed a
report. The reports show that E. H.
Harriman is president of both com
panies; that Riohard Koehler has
been appointed agent in Oregon and
George H. Andrews attorney in fact.
Although the time for filing reports
has expired, about 100 corporations
presented their annual statements to.
day. Those who are delinquent may
report within in 20 days, but after that
time they will be subject to a fine o
$100. All the leading companies are
filing their reports as required by law
and many are already paying their
license taxes, although these are not
due until July 15. So far as appears
at the office of the Secretary of State
there is no disposition to evade the
law, for those who are late in filing
their reports seem to have delayed
through negligence. Some of those
who have been talking of testing the
validity of the law by suits in court
have complied with its provisions.
.secretary or state imnnar nas no
fear that the act of 1903, imposing
ioaaea tax, will bo declared unconsti
tutional, for similar laws in other
states, requiring the payment of much
heavier taxes, have been upheld.
The contests in other states were based
upon the contention that the cor
porations had already paid taxes up
on their property and that the license
tax laws were unconstitutional, be
cause they imposed double taxation,
The courts held, however, that the
license taxes were fees required as
compensation for the privilege of- do
ing business as corporations, a privi
lege expressly conferred by the state.
The general belief that the Oregon
corporation tax law is constitutional
is shown by the fact that companies
represented by the leading attorneys
of Portland have filed their reports
without a protest. If there were any
doubt about the validity of the law,
these attorneys would be likely to
know it. A few smaller companies
have written to the Secretary of State
expressing a doubt as to the validity
of the law, but in every instance he
informs them that the law will be
strictly enforced and that companies
desiring to maintain their right to
transact business in this state as cor
porations must comply with its terms.
It is a fact, which has not been given
much prominence, that the new cor
poration tax law cuts off a consider
able slice from the income of the
Secretary of State. Under the old
law the Secretary was allowed to put
in his own pocket such small fees as
the corporations were required to pay.
In helping to frame and secure the
passage of the new law, and in enforc
ing it, Secretary ot State Dunbar
therefore works against his own
financial interests, but in tho interests
of the state. Oregonian.
