HsP ' '"9.
Salem, Or., J"- ".-Representative
Rothschild, tie only demo
cratic member of the House, today
joined the $9 fepuWicau members
ot that body and" made unanimous
the vote of that organization in pas
sing the bill of Representative New
ell to regulate tbe manufacture and
sale of commercial fertilizers over
the veto of Governor Chamberlain.
This bill, aloBS ith six other
House bills in the 1905 session that
had been vetoed by Governor Cham
berlain, was the social order in the
House at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
The veto message accompanying
each of tbe other half dozen bills
was no sooner read than upon mo
tion further consideration of each
measure was indefinitely postponed.
But when Representative Newell's
bill was reached and the statement
of the governor lor vetoing the same
had been read, Mr Xewell moved
that the bill be passed, notwith
standing the unfavorable action ol
the state's executive.
In support of hit motion, Mr.
Newell briefly disccssed the meas
ure, which he said is of great im
portauce to the farmer's of the en
tire state. He expired that the
bill merely provided that all dealers
in commercial fertilizers must pro'
cure licenses for thea'eof the same,
and are further required to label

guarantee the con tests ot each pack

he said, is required to make applica

ing $20 for each brand of fertilizer
When the license is thus granted
it is further provided that an analy
sis be made by the chemist at the
Agricultural Collcfie- The result of
this analysis nmst be printed as a
label on the outside of each package,
so that the farmer will know just
exactly what he is getting.
In concluding, Mr. Newell ex
plained that the law in its operation
would not entail any expense to the

Van B. DeLaahmutt Explains.
Hillsboro, Jan. 20, 1907.
To the Editor: In your recent
editorial criticizing the Fruit Grow
ers meetine held in Hillsboro on
the 1 2th inst., you seem to lose sight
of the fact that the Hillsboro socie
ty had been organized but two
weeks, at which time the subject ol
spraying, pruning, etc., was thor
oughly discussed and explaiued.
ince most, if not all, of those pres
ent at the last were also present at
the first meeting, we thought to
again go over the same ground
would be uninteresting. I think
our society made a mistake provid
ing for monthly meetings. There
are four societies in Washington
county when there should be but
one, and even it would find two or
three meetings a year quite suffi-'
cient. Most of these auxiliary so
cieties are of mushroom growth.
hey spring into existence through
the persistent prodding of the fruit
inspectors in their efforts to induce
people generally to clean up or grub
up their pest-breeding orchards.
This matter settled, the interest ot
most of the members in the new so
cieties ceases, and it would be out
the question to interest them

Already we have one firm that is

that our section is as cood as the

ditional advantage of its nearness to

experiencing the benefits of dairying

Rich Must Pay Just Tax.
New York, Jan. 15. The tax list
made public yesterday has several
interesting features. Chief of these
is the fact that the tax assessors
have written down the personal for
tune left by Russell Sage at 50,-
000,000. Tnis is easuy me biwi
individual personal tax ever record
ed on the city's book. Sage in his
ife time was assessed at 2,ooo,ooo.
Mrs. Sage, to whom is left practical-
y all of the Sage fortune, is assessed
at 50,000,000 in her own name.
If the two statements staud, Mrs.
Sage will have to draw her check
for the city treasury for something
like $3 10,000.
Mr. Sage's fortune was different
from that of any other rich man in
New York City, consisting chiefly
of cash, uotes and other property
which is taxable under the head of
Fortunes like those of Mr. Rocke

and others are largely in stocks and
other property which is taxed in an

Yorkers pay taxes on $ 1,000,000 or
more of personal property. And

Haines prefaced the ballot by read

A Frankfoit, Indiana, man is said
to have remarked twenty years ago
in referring to his little son, "The
girl who marries my boy will get a
bigger pile of money than she ever
saw outside of a bank." Then lie
went to depositing his hard earned
coin in jars and biding them at the
root of an old apple tree. A lew
days ago the sou was married and
the father dug up the coin and went
with the bride and groom to a bank
for deposit. The pile contained all
kinds of coin from pennies up and
weighed seventy-five pounds. The
value of the son was not indicated
in the dispatches, but it is likely
that the bride got a chump for a

of the Chicago woman's aid society,

There is a general feeling spreading
among tbe clubwomen that poor

send them to institutions; that the

Senator Miller has a good bill be
fore the senate, one providing for
the loaning of the money in the
hand of the state treasurer. It is
a notorious fact that in the past his

is said, and witn reason, mat be lias
had the money tbe state loaned
out receiving the interest amount
ing to thousands of dollars a year
