GOLDEN NUGGETS F0 SALLOW PEOPLE
FROM THE LAND
FRESH YOUNG BLOOD IN A
LETTER FROM MRS. DONELSON.
From Fresno lo San Diego Rain
Pretty Much All lite Way-
W!ts Tkt Tftarne's.
San Diego, Cal., Jan. 31. Dear
Friends: I will try and write
few lines more about our travels.
We left Fresno for Los Angeles
bunday evening, but found so
much rain we went on to Red
lands, which" is one of the pret
tiest cities I have seen. The resi
dences are just beautiful. We
took a car ride up on "Smiley
Heights," where we obtained
hneview of the city and sur
rounding country. Took another
car and rode around the city, and
found we could go by trolly to
San Bernardino, through the
prettiest country of oranges and
grape fruit. San Benardino is
fine place. They have a beau
tiful court house. It is the coun
ty sent of San Bernardino county,
One mile out of the city is a sul
phur spring which boils up in
round urn, then runs into a large
tank which is used for bathing,
We took one and found it fine,
but oh, the smell! I did not try
to drink any of the water, but
Mr. Donelson held his nose while
he sampled the health restorer.'
Tuesday morning we took team
for Riverside and San Diego and
reached the latter place inadriv
ing rain, and took a rest unti
the storm was over, when we
took several rides about the city,
one of which was to the ostrich
farm. They have 120 ostrichs,
almost all grown, some of the
birds being three and six weeks
and six months old. There we
saw the eggs in the incubators
hatching. One egg, they say, is
equal to four , dozen ordinary
hen's eggs, and they want $1 for
an empty shell. Cheap, isn
it ? In the evening we took the
train for La Mesa Springs and
are now stopping with W. E,
Thome, who is comfortably situ
ated. We went over the hills to
their supply reservoir of water,
They have a large supply and use
all they want. We go tomorrow
for a trip to Coranado Beach and
arge hotel, and will take a trip
into Mexico next. Will write of
that later. The Thornes are all
well and happy.
Mrs. Mary Martin, acred 73.
widow of James Martin, who
died on Gales Creek three years
ago, died at Gales Creek last Sat
urday from pneumonia. She was
orn in Missouri and came to
Washington county thirty years
ago. She leaves an adopted son
and a daughter, Mrs. Clementine
Glasson, of Elgin.
Revival of "Kerry Cow", with Bril
liant Celt in Title Role.
The coming of "Kerry Cow"
to the Crescent Theatre on Sat
urday evening recalls the palmy
days of Joseph Murphy, some
thirty years ago, when this fa
mous actor played the part of
Dan O'Hara for over six months
at the old Park theatre on Broad
way, near Twenty-third street,
New York. The theatre-going
public of those days hailed the
shoeing of a race horse on the
dramatic stage as the acme of
spectacular realism, and the
blacksmith scene was the talk of
New York for many years fol
lowing. The lasting qualities of "Kerry
Gow" which has been produced
continuously for over thirty-one
years are remarkable and are
due almost solely to the broad
human interest which prevades
the story and carries the audi
ence along with the trials of
Honest Dan O'Hara who finally
triumphs over the grasping land
lord who plots to win Nora by
foul and underhand means. The
tale is a homely one, but close to
the hearts and feelings of the
The feature of the new pre
sentation of "Kerrv Gow" is
above all the contract of Bernard
Daly with the production. 'Daly
is looked upon in the theatrica
circles as distinctly a "find, "and
comes from the same school that
produced Chauncey Olcott. His
start was in musical comedy, he
having played two years with
Miss Paula Edwards as her tenor
supporter in musical comedy,
His phenomenally high clear
voice attracted the attention of
Denman Thompson and he has
pleased thousands for the last
two years in "The Old Home
stead" as the leading juvenile.
Bernard Daly was born in
Lynn, Mass., and has been plac
ed under contract for ten years
by U. D. Newell, one of the
deans of road management. He
is a handsome, well-built young
fellow and is looked upon by ob
servant musicians and dramatists
as a coming Scanlan.

"'Whatever you do, never name

quaint saying of my old friend,

for more reasons than one. In
after years the father and son
are referred to as "Big John,"
or "Ragged John," "Little John

Young Tom," and "Big Dick,"
"Little Teel Head" and the like.

these smartest and cutest things
you ever saw in your life, until
he grows up. - Correspondent

ine ii'iin"' iui uie submis
sion of the constitutional amend
ment drafted by the Oregon Tax
Reform Association has just been
filed with the Secretary of State.
The signers came from all parts
of the state in such numbers that
it is the strongest petition ever
submitted. That these signa
tures, numbering several thou
sand more than the number re
quired by law, were obtained
more easily than other tuitions,
indicates widespread interest in
It proiwses a decided step to
ward the single tax; as far in
that direction as conditions in
Oregon are thought; to permit,
taxing land values, (not acres)
and exempting (the text of the
amt-ndment reads) "all dwelling
houses, barns, sheds, outhouses
and other appurtenances there
to, all fences, all machinery and
buildinsrs used exclusively for
manufacturing purposes, and the
appurtenances thereto, all fences,
farm machinery and appliances
used as such, all fruit trees,
vines, shrubs and all other im
provements on farms, all live
stock, all household furniture in
use, and all tools owned by work
men and in use, shall be exempt
Many .of tte greatest Ameri
cans of all pditical faiths, have
endorsed tn? principles embod
ied in this nnendment. Among
them, Senator LaFollette, Gov.
Folk, Ton Jonnson, Henry
George, Wm. Lloyd Garrison,
vman Ablott and ex-Governors
Douglas anl Garvin. They sym
pathise witi the idea of raising
the needed revenues for carrying
on our covemmcnt, and at the
same time discourage land mono
noly, by tasng land and fran
chise values nore, and exempt
ing improvenents and personal
Some object tio the proposition,
because it exempts buildings and
machinery of panufacturers from
taxation. It does so. In this
connection, oo' well-intormed
men, Oregon is asked to follow
well trodden paths. It is point
ed out that Orvpon has most fa-
orable natural opportunities and
conditions for the establishment
of manufacturing enterprises,
Other states have exempted man
ufacturing buildings from taxa
tion because it vas found to aid
development, enhance land val
ues, attract other forms of capi
tal, as well as population, and
worked to thcgeneral good with
out a single exception.
Some think the farmer would
have to pay as much taxes as ev
er because to exempt improve
ments, live stock, machinery,
etc., would simply double, the
taxes on "his land and thereby
leave the producing agriculturist
where he is now. That would
be so if the farmer owned the
land values in Oregon. But to
begin with, two-thirds of the
land values of Oregon are in cit
ies. Land for purposes of taxa
tion is measured by a dollar. A
section of land in some parts of
Oregon would be dear fit $610
but a few square feet of land in
Portland are worth more than
many sections of such lands.
Recently real estate transactions
in that city showed that there
are SO acres, worth on the aver
age $l,C0O,(K)0 each. An acre of
this land is worth as much as 32,
000 acres of the best farming
devoid of improvements, at $150
Farmers now pay more than
SO ier cent of state taxes while
numbering less than 25 per cent
of the ixipulation. But as long
as the farmer's improvements
are taxable they cannot escape,
as they are not of the nature to
be hid. If the farmer has any
thing exempt, it must be exempt
ed ojHn and above board by law.
The land held in cities, for water
power, for timber and minerals,
for speculative purposes and
rights of way in various forms,
far exceeds the value of the land
owned by the working farmers
The main tax burden will be
shifted to valuable locations in
cities and railroad franchises,
which values are mainly made
up by tribute paid by the indus
try and improvements of the
rest of the state, and should
justly bear the burden.
The proposed amendment is
practical, up to date, its provi
sions have been tested and work
ed. The people of Oregon will
have this question before them
for four months. They will hear
much of it The headquarters of
the Oregon Tax Reform Associa
tion are at room 705 Marquam
Building, for the present, and
they are glad to give out infor
mation to all who may ask fori

IT'S THE REFORM SCHOOL NOW
Bruce Donelson Runs Away Trom
the Boys and Girls Home and
Comes Back lo Ilillsboro.
Horace McKinley is now on his
way from China to Fortland, Or.
He forfeited his bonds while
awaiting trial there, fled to the
Orient, and was captured by the
Mukden authorities. Later he
escaped from the Mukden jail,
and it is said that Reed assisted
him in his escape. He was re
cently recaptured, and is return

to the Boys and Girls Homo from
Ilillsboro last week, ran aw.iy

J. Touscher, traveling agent of
the Boys and Girls Aid Society,
came out from Portland Tuesday
and had a talk with the boy in
the office of the county judge.
He asked Bruce if he wanted to
go back to the Home and behave
himself, and the lad replied that
he had rather go to the "other
place," so the judge committed
him to the reform school, where it
is a pretty safe bet that he will not
run away for some time.
Young Bruce and a lad named
Kenneth Horgan, 11 years old,
went to church last Sunday and
behind the guard's back put up
the scheme for running away.
After leaving the Home they
went to Montivilla, sleeping in a
barn that night. In the morning
they went to an aunt of the Hor
gan boy, who gave them some
thing to eat and kept them in
hiding all day. That evening she
bought Bruce a half-fare ticket
and sent him to Ilillsboro, the
most unkind thing she could have
done, as at that time they would
have given him another chance
at the Home. Now he is in the
reform school, and the chances
are he will stay there.

Every expert who oiens his
