THAT INCOME TAX
Much is being said for and
iaagnst the proposed income tax,
sponsored by Governor Patterson.
' Some interests are sending out prop
aganda decrying such a tax, while
othre3 are voicing their faith in the
'jneasure. The country press iis re
ceiving many, letters asking their
influence by both parties. The
Times hts not learned enough .of the
ins and outs of the measure to take
a stand either way. We will say, J
however, that Governor , Patterson, '
as well as many other astute poli
ticians favor the tax, no doubt hav
ing good reason for bo doing, and
that we believe they know what they
are talking about when they say it
should be passed. At anw rate, if !
it is a measure to increase the j
rtate's revenue and at the same time
not increase the general tax, we are j
Doings at Pine Grove.

We wonder why it is that press
dispatches from the Coos Bay coun
try invariably bear a Marshfield
date line, when the fact is that most
of such are related to North Bend?
The latter city has the unbound
hustle of the west, is growing by
leaps and bounds and in time bids
fair to be the metropolis of that sec
tion of the state. We suggest that
the correspondent use 'a little more
discretion and not play one . town
against the other so strongly. ,
It is rumored that, in case Secre
tary, of State Kozer is given another
state portfolio, Hal Hoss, secretary
to Governor Patterson, will succeed
to Sam's office." Knowing Hal, We
will say that the governor couhi do

for the former Oregon, Cityt news

name and ability. .

Uucle Sam will make the size of
