Serious charges are made by the
Labor Bender, the official organ of
ho Central Trades, Labor and Farm
ers' council of Bend, In Its latest Is
rue. It Is unfortunate that they are
not more specific. Reference to "the
graft system In public offices," the
allegation that "Shevlin-Hlxon" and
"Brooks-Scanlon" are stooping "to
such graft" and the suggestion that
someone Is guilty of dishonesty all
theso are rather grave matters, and
the Individuals concerned, as well as
the public, aro entitled, to know more
specifically what they are charged
If It Is meant that there aro graft
ers in public office In Deschutes
county let's have the facts. One of
the reasons for our advocacy of the
creation of Deschutes county was a
belief that In a smaller county the
people would bo In closer touch with
their officials. If graft has sprung
up here, let's know about It.
It the reference Is wholly tho
matter of property valuations now
under discussion, we think tho lan
guage somewhat stronger than the
conditions warrant. We have long
felt that valuations in Crook, and
later, Deschutes, county were low.
That is agreed by every man who
lias any knowledge of the facts. If
they aro unequal they should be
equalized. Wo believe that all want
to pay their Just share of the taxes,
and with valuations equalized they
will so pay.
Until man changes his nature, or
knows that his nioghbor is assessed
evenly with him, he Is going to make
bis tax return Just as low as bis
conscience will permit. Wo do not
iseek to Justify the practice but
simply fo stato the fact recognized
by all. In this county, where valua
tions aro agreed to bo low, no one Is
going to Impose a penalty on him
self by giving, In a 100 per cent,
valuation to tho assessor. Each -will
try to keep even with bla neighbor
in having a low assessment.
If tho time has come when tho
valuations are to bo raised, and, it
discrepancies exist, equalized, well
and good. Wfliaro sure overy good
citizen wjU be glad to seo tho work
d'oqe. Tho only thing that has held
any class of property owner back in
thfc past Jhas been the fear that all
-clas'sea would nof join In the change.
If conditions have now arisen under
which the farmer Is (getting the short
end and he therefore Is ready to
kick out for an equalization, ho
ought to get what he Is after. And
wo believe he will. We believe that
all classes ot property owners can'
get together and work out an adjust
ment that will bo mutually fair. They
can ask nothing more.
But to charge graft In public of
flco and dishonesty in private busi
ness In. connection with tho matter
is putting it pretty strong. If wo
aro all slncero in this tax business
wo can get our results without
quarelllng and without calling each
