DOLLAR TAX ROLL

howl that went up at the idea of the
state spending such an enormous

will. To scape tax increase and uu
arbitrary assessment ly an arbi
trary asacMor it is only necessary
to elect a man who will do his ut
most to make equitabU assessments;
who will give all an opportunity to
examine his books and- who will
treat taxpayers as equals and not
menials when they call on him.
Such a man 1. Will . Doud, who
seeks to aupplant Jim Davia In the
assessor' office. If honest, capa
bility, and above all a square deal
for all, la desired, then the tax
payers will vote to nominate Mr.
Doud at the coming primary elec
tion. Consider the two men, the
work of the present incumbent, and
we are sure the Dufur man will re
ceive your endorsement at the poll
at the primaries.
iWHY NOT INVESTIGATE MORE?
A family, driving a cur bearinc ..
California liccm, wan stranded In
Maupin the latter part of last week.
They were without funds and, as
their car was needing some parts,
were unable to contina on their way
home. Mrs. L. B. Kelly was in
formed of the predicament of the
travelers and headed a subscription
liht, which she later circulated among
burners men. She raised a few
dollars, sufficient to provide food
and the needed part for the car,
which being fixed allowed the fam
ily to proceed on their way.

Candidate For Sheriff
I hereby announce myself as a candidate
for office of Sheriff of Wasco County, at the
Republican Primaries, May 18, 1928.
If I am'nominated and elected I will enforce
the law and conduct the office in a courteous
and economical manner.

past, and that the time for a change
in this policy has most certainly ar
rived. If there is no change, Was-
! co county taxpayers can get ready
i to dig up a million dollars in the not
j distant future.
Every taxpayer in Wasco county
j should join the newly organized
i league r.nd get ready to do part in
j the tax reduction program, working
I with the tax levying bodies of the
! county. It will require an organized
effort to do the work that must be
done in this line, for the demands
made upon these bodies is bo heavy
that public opinion must be back of
i them if thoy are to curtail expenses.
We wonder how many taxpayers
of Wasco county desire, that their
taxes be increased from" year to
vnr. their nroDertv" aluations ar
bitrarily raised, even though no
'improvements have htcn made from
true, and we have no doubt our in
formants know whereof they speak,
there might be some mighty inter
esting disclosures made, and some
that might' not reflect much credit
on the conduct of the office. We
are not accusinir Mr. Chrisman of
taking fees nothing like that but
suggest that the county court go in
to the affairg of the eheriff'a office
in order that the taxpayers may be
enlightened as to just what and how
the sheriff is conducting his job.
