Washington County Ponoma
Grange Adopts Resolution.
The following Tualatin special is
taken from The Oregonian of July
A meeting of Washington county
Ponoma Grange was held at Tuala
tin on July 34, last. Although this
is a very busy time for the farmers,
the attendance was good, even if a
majority of those present were lad
ies. Mrs. Clara II. Waldo, lectur
er of the State Grange, gave a most
excellent address, which added
much to make the meeting both
profitable and pleasant to all who
were in attendance.
Two resolutions were introduced
and adopted, as follows:
Whereas, The National Grange,
the State Grange and many subor
dinate granges, as well as the peo
ple at large, have demanded the en.
actment of a parcels post law, and
Whereas, Those who are our re
presentatives in congress have so far
taken no action to grant this just
demand of the people for relief from !
the extortions of the different ex
press companies; therefore, be it
Resolved, That the only way to
obtain this much-needed relief is to
demand from every man who may
become a candidate for congressman
or United States senator, irrespec
tive of party, a positive pledge that
he will, if elected to this responsi
ble office, work for and vote for the
enactment ol a parcels post law.
Whereas, Under our present mode
of assessment and taxation much
valuable property is either not tax
ed at all or does not pay its proper
and just share of taxes; therefore be
Resolved, That Washington
County Pomona Grange indorses
the action of the State Grange in
appointing a committee of five to
investigate our assessment and tax
ation laws and to create a public
sentiment demanding that couuty
assessors use their full powers to as
sess all private and corporate wealth
at a just and uniform rate. And be
Resolved, That, in this connec
tion, we especially commend the ac
tion of the Washington county as.
sessor in assessing the valuable tim
ber lands of the county, which have
heretofore borne but a small share
of the tax burden, thereby adding a
large amount (about 4,000,000) to
the taxable property of this county.

contained materials for the new rail

on the barge were the locomotive

and enough rails to cover six miles
of track. There were also about 75
men aboard the Wallacut for the
