THURSDAY, JULY IS, 191 S.
From nil over Oregon cries nro
arising that the, G per cunt, tax limita
tion law, coupled with greatly In
creased costs, Is playing hob with
public Institutions nnd tho execution
of public affairs. Although tho sug
gestion has. not yet been made, It
will undoubtedly bo proposed In duo
time to repeal this clause of the con
stitution, adopted by tho pooplo In
Wo aro not so suro that tho law
is worthy of the criticism that has
beon given It of late, It-does make
troublo, that Is suro enough. It Is
a bothor to have to keep within
limits. All of us Uko to spend nil
wo want to spenu. Ann tnni is just
whero tho 6 per cent, limitation gets
in its good work so far ns the ex
penditure of tax money is concerned.
Tho Inw does not forbid tho levy
ing of n tax in excess of the tS per
cent. Increaso nnd gives absolutely no
loophole. Tho prohibition Is ngalnst
tho lovy unless the people have voted
the Increase. In short, It 1b directly
up to the people. They must bo told
and shown. Then, If the reason
eecms good they will undoubtedly
voto tho increased tax. Such was the
case with tho city tax In Oend last
January. And because of the pub
licity at that time tho people got a
better idea than they had ever had
of how tho city money wns spent,
and tho council took to Itself moro
rigid ideas of economy.
It will be a bother to have to voto
every year on. the city nnd the school
district tax, but that will be neces
sary in Bend so long as the law
exists. We will never get our ex
penses down to tho point where a
C per cent, addition to tho tax of
1917 will suffice. Out the bother
will be worth while If we learn mora
about taxes, if the people nave their
chance to talk it over before the
money is spent instead of after, when
it is too late, and It, In the long run,
strict economy nnd efficiency result.

WASHINGTON, July 17. Ser

THE YELLOW DOG.
Tho idea contained In the story
called "Tho Yellow Dog," which ap
peared In (he Saturday Evening Post
early In May, is to be taken up prac
tically, and Anti-Yellow Dbg clubs
formed all over the country for the
purpose of tagging the citizens of
every community who, by their
speech or actions, are not backing
up tho government in the conduct
of the war.
Tho Idea Is simple. The boys of
tho community aro organized and
given cards on which appear various
definitions of yellow dogism. When
ever they hear anyone making any
remarks that are within tho defini
tions they give the Individual a
card, always asking "How do you
There aro mighty few yellow dogs
In this county, praise be, but for the
few that are still here the organiza
tion might bo effective. Let us hope
it gets organized here.
THEN IT CAME HOME TO HER
Moment When Henrietta Realized That
There Were Dishonest People'
In the World.
Management of the Fourth of July
nrnirram in such fashion as to come!
out with a $100 surplus speaks well
for the committee In charge. The
day was well filled with a good pro
gram; everybody had a good time.
Thero was no extravagance and
there Is a surplus. Now cannot the
surplus, with tho consent of the
donors, bo devoted to some public
use? With the furniture now owned
it would go a long way toward pro
viding a rest room, for Instance.
Among tho many flno war records
being made by various organizations
throughout the country, ono of the
finest is that of the International
Typographical Union. All tho em
ployes of Tho Bulletin shop are
members of this union and both they
and Tho Bulletin aro proud of their
connection and association with a
body whoso patriotism has shone
forth so brightly.
From a recent bulletin Issued by
tho union the following facts con
corning Its participation In the war
"Foui 'thousand and elghty-ono
members of the International Typo
graphical Union and C6G appren

Henrietta Weird looked nt the
change the conductor hiul Just given
her a quarter nnd five nickels.
"Goodness," she thought excitedly,
"he's given me u nickel over I I'm
riding for nothing!"
And she julckly cloved her hand
over the change, und then she remem
bered that the conductor had rung up
her fare nnd that probnbly the nickel
would have to come out of his own
"Oh, dear!" the thought remorse
fully. "Perhupi the poor man Iiiih u

day Is ull he can ufford to feed them
with. I suppose I xvnlly ought to re
turn it to him. But no, he hus a hud
face I shouldn't bo surprised If he
bcuts his wife every day, und It would
ficrve him right to suffer for his own
carelessness I' Still, of course, I
wouldn't like to feel that I am depriv
ing his buby of its dally bucket of
milk no, I'll keep it u man in his
position has no moral right to have a
large family. Goodness, what If he
fchould suddenly find out he guve me
too much und demand it back uguln?
I think I'll get right out I'm only ten
blocks from home, unywny."
And at the next stop she hurriedly
left the car, still clutching thu quarter
and five nickels In her hand.
"I'd better look again perhaps
there are only four nickels after all,"
Mie thought. And she opened her
hand and looked. No, there were five,
but, us she looked, the quurter slipped
through her fingers und fell on the
pavement with a hollow, leaden
