A CONSISTENT COURT.
Renewed evldenco of the regard of
'the county court for tho town of
IJcnd is to be found in tho report of
thoxcourt's proceedings at its last
JftyMon. - A sudden access of regard
f&T'the letter of tho budget law is
also shown. In view of the way tho
court has conducted its affairs hith
erto it seems clear that it now seeks
the cloak of the law for Its unfair
treatment ot tho city.
' Investigations made last summer
disclosed tho tact that tho county
owed both the city and School Dis
trict 12 for taxes collected and not
turned over durlngthtf years 1906
to CIOIS. -Tho county court-had tho
figures checked up by Its own export
and at tho last session ot the court
ho reported that they wero correct,
and that the monoy was due.
Did tho court thereupon order pay
ment? It did not. It referred tho
quistion of whether or not tho coun
ty should pay Interest to another of
ficial and mado art order that the
principal should be paid ia a year.
This on tho ground that no provision
for the payment bad been Included In
the 1015 budget.
With tho court In this temper wo
suppose it Is useless to ask the ie
tion but nevertheless we ask "Why
did the court In Mareh order paid to
tho olty ot Prloovllle tho sum tf
$1,694-48 duo just as the present
sums are to Bend and School District
12?" That amount was not Included
In the 191 budget.
In-'refr'eahlng contrast to this ac
tion Is tho recent payment by the City
of Dead to tho county for work done
by the county crew on roods within
tho city limits;
"Tho county court has been in ses
sion tho post week waiting to rccolvo
tho stnto tax levy In order thnt tho
levy for Lako couuty can bo made."
This quotation from tho Lako Coun
ty Examiner Indicates a somowhat
different method ot doing things from
that nrnctled by our county court.
Tho Lako county way is bettor Blnco
IC doca away with all guess work and
insures a levy In nccordanco with tho
necdi of tho county.

To tho Editor:
In your last Issue you stato that
tho county court failed to appropriate
their share or tho county agricultur
ist's salary. Is there no way this can
bo brought up again? I am sure tho
farmers In this section of tho county
want this man's assistance next year
and If tho matter la brought boforo
them they will make nn effort to have
this appropriation made.
If this $1500 was cut out for econ
omy's sake I for ono think It a very
poor way to economize.

no doubt that tho tangle blundered
Into by tho Reclamation Service and

as it la unfortunate. It has serious
ly discredited the national adminis

ly if the present atttudo of tho Sec

have good causo to feel that It his

Even had no promises been given, tho
state has so often been bilked out of

this last action, should it stand, is
like adding Insult to Injury. There fa
no need to give up bopo yet. Indeed,
the new situation makes It more than
ever apparent that It we are to get
much from Washington wo must go
after it, persisteutly, unitedly and
strenuously. 8q let us prepare for
ailong siege, if oeeds bo, remember
ing the signal unfairness of the pres
ent action until opportunty offers to
square accounts with those respons-ible.
In Its recent budget Harney Coun

"The act -of tho Malheur county!
