The Delinquent Tax Bill
A good deal has been said In Tlio Bulletin In (ho past few week
concerning tho hill to ho voted on next Tuesday to repeal tho delinquent
(ax publication law. In (hi lant Inkiio of the weekly coition of Tim Hullo
tin before olerllon ho vtlsli (o sum up (ho argument and make n final
presentation of (ho matter. In roiiNlderlng vlit In set forth below wo
nro qullo willing (hat It nlinll ho remembered (lint wo havo an Interest
In (ho matter throiiRh our position its official county ncuspaper. Tho
reasons for retaining tho present law nro (julto beyond any matters of
persoilal Interest.
An (ho law stand (the law adoptrI by (ho 11)17 IcKlsIaluro), post
card notlccM aro mailed to Icllniiicnt ill a certain Hmc, and then, after
a certain tltun has -laped ultliln Mlilch payment may Imj made by thoso
uho havo rerelveil tho canls, (ho names of all who havo not paid aro ad
vertised. Tho projMiied new law iIock mmy with (ho advertising; and, In
plaro of tlio Mst rnrd notlre, niibttlttitCN letter notice to all delinquent.
It seems to Tho llullellu (hat them are tvto main question Involvccl
In any ronfderallou of tho subject: (1) What method of dealing vtltli dc
HmiuentN will brliiK In (he mot (ax money, and (1!) what method of
Kiting notice vtlll ho moit likely to
(ho taxc aro delinquent. Tim first ipientlon, It vtlll be seen, consider
the matter from (ho point of view of the dlxtrlct Interested In tlio collec
tion of laxe, and tho second, from tho point of view of (he Individual who
Is Interested In property and vlhew (o ho protected against a salo for taxes.
Tho auMtter (o both question seem to us to ho rlenr. Tho brat
results, iMith for tho tax collet tor and for tho taxpayer, will bo obtained
by a continuance of tho existing law.
All the county, or other (axing district, I Interested In I getting the
lax money. Taxes aro (ho hills n property owner pays (o (ho city, county
and school district for (ho possession of property. Tho various district
want those bills paid as fast lis may he. Anil, since most men dislike to
havo puhllcKy gltcu (o (ho fact (hat they oho money, the prosjiect of
publicity through tho ndcrtlcmcnt of dcllii.jucncy I calculated to bring
lu tho money faster than tho pcrwonnl notice alone bring it.
Thoso who have had to do with the publication of (ho delinquent list
know that on It first appearance number of people pay up In order to
get their name out of tho list. That I tho effect or (he publicity, and
It I tho publicity that tho proposed hill would do away with. Kverj thing
tho proposed hill offer I provided for by (ho present law. The only
change Is lu tho matter of publicity. That Is needed to help get tho
(axe In.
Tho publlrlty f needed In another way, aUo. The advertisement Is
not only Intended to get delinquent to pay up; It also tell (he general
public that after a certain date, If tho taxr aro not paid by tho owner,
rertlllcate of delinquency will bo for Mile on (ho property listed. The
sale of these certificate also bring In tho (ax money lo (he county, and
they art adtcrtlscd In no other way.
To the Indltldiial the Important thing I lo havo Ids memory Jogged
and If the post card or letter notice were sure (o ge( to tho man who I
Interested lu seeing that tho taxes arc iald, probably the advertisement
would not be needed. Hut, a everyone knows, (hero arc hundred of
ease In cery county where someone, not tho record owner, I (ho ono
who Is paying (ho (axe mid (ho one who wauls his memory Jogged when
they nro due. He I tho one who
Purchaser of lot on tho Installment plan nlwa) contract to pay
taxi. Suppose the fact that' taxes
not pay. They do not get the written notice of delinquency. That goes
by mall to the man or company that I selling to (hem. Suppose ho throws
It away, or disregard it. Utile. an advertisement I published nil chance
of notice lo tho htijer I gone.
Or MipiMtso jou have sold property and given a deed, taking a mort
gage back to Insure pigment. Tho
and if ho fall lo pay (ho taxes when due (he notice of delinquency I
mnllcd to him. Supiwiso ho disregard It, or throws It away. Your only
protection I In having published the list of tho delinquent tnxc. Unless
)ou get jour notice by publication and step In to pay, tho property may
bo Mild for taxes and a title ucrlor to that mMcIi jou Imvc through your
mortgage littrrent may shut jou out.
Those aro tho main features of tho delinquent tax business and n
logical discussion loads (o (ho Inevitable conclusion that, for tho best
results to tho taxing district. nnd thoso Intcrc-dcd In pajlng tho (axe,
mall notice should bo supplemented by news-mper advertising.
Thero aro many minor jtolnt or argument. Aihocates of tho pro
ixed low say that tho cost or publication I luirno by tho count)-, anil
that thl should not he. A a matter
Instance, does pay (ho cost, it I reimbursed. J.'very (ax (hat I delinquent
has ndded to It certain charges which must ho paid before flio property is
cleared. When these taxes aro jmld tho county gets Its nmney hack.
Tho high rate of Interest paid on delinquent taxes moro than reimburses
tho county for Interest paid on n warrant Issued for advertising.
Abuses of tho law aro rlted as an argument. Thero liavo been abuse?.,
without doubt. Their citation, however, 1 not an urgument against tho
law, but against Its udmlnlstratlon, and tho remedy lies in nctlon by tlio
proper ofllelabj In getting the abuse eliminated. '
Hack of tho argument on tho merits of tho existing law Is tho ques
tion as to how tho utters of tho stato Intend to deal with tho power of
money when used lo present bill under tho Initiative. Hills of real
merit fulled to get on tho ballot this fall because funds were lacking for
tho publicity necisary to get siKnatures. The bill In question, however,
tho hobby ot a rich man, a mllllonalro publisher, backed by his money,
did get on tho ballot, as did a measure, nlso fathered by him, to reduce lepd
advertising rates in (ho country press. Ills own rates nro where lie
wants them.
Will (ho voters of Oregon continue to permit tho use of tho Initiative
for private, ends? Will they let money propose and make their laws?
These are even moro InqMirtniit matters than any connected with tho de
linquent lax law. To rebuke, such uscTof. the power of money, to aid in
quick collection of tnxe.s and to protect tho Individual taxpajer, vote

SALEM, Oct. 31, Next Tuesday
will Bcttlo tho question of who will
hold a numbor of stato offices In
Oregon for tho next four years. In
tho minds ot politicians around hero
that question In pretty definitely
settled as It In, and It looks like a
straight Republican victory from top
to bottom. In only one placo docs
thoro seem to bo much doubt and
that Is as to tho supremo Judgeship,
to fill tho vacancy caused by tho
death ot Justlcq F. A. Moore. Even
some of tho most stalwart of tho
stalwart Republicans admit that
Judgo A. S. Dennet, Democratic can
dldato from Tho Dalles, has as
good, and perhaps a little better,
show than any of tho Republicans.
With a divided field among tho Re
publicans, with all of tho uncertain
ties attendant upon tho voters writ
ing In the names and with tho pe
culiar complications arising tboy
concede. that Judgo Dennett has a
strong clianco. Ills nnmo Is much
better known to the voters ot tho
stato than tho name ot any Repub
lican candidate after tho Job; ho has
u strong following among tho mem
bers ot tho liar, and on top ot that
ho is apt to develop some unexpected
strength, not only in Eastern Ore
gon, but In Portland, whero. ho Is
widely known, and ho will probably
have a pretty solid backing among
tho Domocratn.
A story is told which may bo true
or not but Inasmuch as It Is being
told by some pretty reliable people
It may bo repeated with tho reserva
tion that porhaps It Is no more than
political gossip. Tho story Is to tho
effect that tho Plorco gang was to
throw Its support to Coke and that
In turn Coos county was to coma up
strong for PIcrco. A fow flattering
remarks In tho Portland Journal
about Coko editorially may give some
somblunce ot reliability to tho yarn.
It It Is truo tho entrance ot IJonnott
Into tho raco has given a peculiar
twist to tho situation tor the Demo
crats. But whether the story Is
truo or not Dennett is apt to got a
very considerable vote and tho guess
would bo he Is a formidable con
tender for tho toga. Justice Olson
Is confident ho will win, Judge
Campbell is equally confident ho
will win, whllo tho Coko supporters
nro spreading a strong campaign as
fur as thoy can roach. '
It Is all a toss-up, but Is really the.
only Interesting situation in tho
campaign. Tho rest of It appears to
bo a walkaway for tho Republican
Democrats Throw Mud.
It Is certain that this campaign
will go dowu Into history as ono ot
tho dirtiest over waged. Tho dirt Is
all coming from tho Democratic sldo
us near as can bo discovered.
No stono Is being loft unturned to
vllllfy nnd underrate Governor
Wlthycombo, nnd it past history in
the stato Is any criterion tho mud
slinging will Blmply pllo up a" larger
voto tor the governor.
Tho Portland Journal has been
working night and day trying to
spread dissension among the Repub
lican ranks and to nllonato friends
from tho governor. Its columns
havo boon plastered with every sort
ot inuondo It could command to en
deavor to bring about tho downfall
ot tho present govornor and to oltf
vato Plorco. It Plorco had a show
in tho world, It Is our guess that It
has been lost In tho political thug
gory which has boon oxorclsod In hla
Tho Inconsistency ot tho whole
business Is moro or less amusing to

This is the first definite date which

Regardless of this fact, tho same

tho stomach of a voter that might
possibly be a friend ot Plorco, Abuso
