OREGON'S NEW TAX LAW
Taxes Are to Be Paid Twice In
Yee.r of 1904.
Tux layers in Ori'ou will jiay
Uixch twieo iu l'.KiI. Tlioy will yay
tlu luxes levied upon tlio tux roll of
S0;l uiul also the taxes levied upon
the roll of 11W4. This is duo to a
luuigo iu the law by which taxes aro
to be paid in the fall of tiie samo year
the nsjessmout is made. In order to
ffect tliis ehuiii;u it was necessary to
make the taxes payable three mouths
arlicr or nine months Inter. The col-
ct ion of taxes is already three
months later than it should be, go thn
efdslattire decided to mako tlio taxes
payable iu tlio preceding fall. Under
the new tirranp'iuonts, the counties
will have funds earlier and will save
sc;uie interest on warrants. Taxpayers
will feel that they nro bearinc a
louble burden tho first year, but after
that there will be no difference iu the
nniout to be paid iu any otto year.
Under tho present law tho assess
ment is made after the lirst Monday
in March, the assessment roll being
liled ill September, tlio levy thereon
made the following January and the
taxes collected by the first Monday iu
April. Tims the taxes on tho assess
ment of 11103 aro not paid until 11103.
Tlio new law provides that the
ussessi r shall on the lirst Monday of
January procure blatiK assessment
rolls anil proceed forthwith to make
his assessment, and return thn roll
by the lirst Monday of July, showing
ill the property owned in his county
on the lirst Monday in January. Sec
tion :!t',0 of the code has been amended
so as to provide that the County Hoard
if 1'qualiation shall sit on the first
Monday of July, instead of ou the
ast Monday of August, as heretofore.
Section 'M2 was amended so as to
limit the time for correcting the
issessineiit rolls by tho Hoard of
Knimlizat ion of the comity court to 20
Under the new law tho county
ourts must make the annual tax levy
in r-cptomber following rite assess
ment. Iu order that the county courts
may have information ns to the
amount required, it is provided that
the State Hoard of Apportionment
hall make its estimate of slate ex
penses iu July, instead of iu January,
is at present. Cities and school dis
tricts must notify the county clerks
of their annual tax levies by tho first
dav of September, -tustead of by the
Hi s-t day of , February, us under the
old law. This gives the county
ourts full information for the levy
iug of tuV'S at the September form of
All taxes are payable by tho lilst
day of December of tho same year,
seliou :il(K of the code having been
ameuib-d s.o'us to make that provision
All taxes not paid bv the :11st day of
Hei'dubcr become deliniiuent on that
day ; provided, however, that if one
half of the taxed due on anv parcel of
land are paid by the lilst of December,
1ho protiortv-ownor may have until
the following lirst Monday iu April,
mil if the remainder be not then paid,
it becomes delinquent, and besides
the penalty, interest at the rale of
per edit will be charged on such re-
i mil T f mm the lilst of December
On all delinquent taxes, interest is to
be charged at the rate of l' i-r cent
;ier milium from the date of the delin
lueiiev, and if the taxis remain deliu
lueiit :;o days, a penally of a per cent
will be added, tin all taxes paid on
or belore the lllst dav of December,
rebate of i percent will be iillnwed
Under tie- presi nt law the rebate is II
per lent. On the first Monday in
l'Yhruary the sherilf must begin tin
collection of delinquent taxes by 1
inguisiii personal proiiertv, and on tin
lilst Monday in April close tlio delin
qui nt ma and return it to the county
County t:i aimers are required to
pay one-half the state tuxes by Jn
uary i:, but the provisions of this net
do not apply to any taxes heretofon
Delinquent sab s are to take place
by October 1.
1 he new law shortens the entire
limefnr luakinj uu assessment and
collecting the tuxes one month. Un
der tin1 nbl l.iw ii,,. assessments began
?dareh I and the. taxes became delin-
qmut i n the first Monday in April of
the -in c. , ding year, a rii,d of lit
months. Under tho new law the
asse.-ment si v,ill begin on January 1
and tax. s w i 11 bo delinquent on the
last day ol the year, a - riod of 12
months. The time for beginning and
ending ;h work of making the ass,.h.
nn i:ts has been placed two months
arli. r, so that the length of that
-rind I. a. not been changed. The
time ,,f m.ii.ing tic tax levy has been
-et back four miititlis and the timer for
pa ing tax- s thr e months.
While it is generally said that tin
taxes will iiiiw 1,.. j.aid in the fall, the
last date i., m arly in the middle of
the winter, so that marly all farmers

LOST RIVER OF KLAMATH
One of the Strange Streams
the Sago Brush Country.
The Ashland Record of lust week
contains an article ou the "Lost
Rivers" of Oregon and has the fol
lowing to say iibout tho one iu
Klamath county: "Lost river in
Klamath county is one of the most im
portant and most historio in the
state, some of the best ranches in
Klatnalh county now lie along this
stream, though in early days it was
the luit tic ground of tho Indians.
Along this stream more immigrants
were slain than at any other point in
the country, aud it was here that Hen
Wright and his famous 211 wreaked
veiigeauco upon the savages by attack
ing a whole band and killing and
scalping the men, women mid child
ren. The river runs through a level
plain, "losing"itself and " llndlng"it-
self again more than once. It rises
up us a vast spring and, after flowing
a long distance, it. disappears again
in the sands, but rises again at
short distance, mid one may watch
the course aud it is easy to (b termini
that it is all the same stream. The
soil is very rich along its banks, and
where the Indians ouco laid in Mail
for the weary immigrant, who sought
the water of this stream, after cross
ing the plains, for himself and team,
and to si-end a few days in this, at
that time great oasis iu the Oregon
desert, now well-to-do fanners anil
stockmen dwell iu xwo and comfort,
and the latch string lo their homes is
always out lo the weary traveler.
OREGON PRUNES WANTED
French Buyers Are Looking Alter

Kn neh buyers are entering tin Ore
gon prune market. Letter have been
received by l'reneli Consular Ag.nl
Ib nri Ijibhii from 1'rench dealers iu
this staple, stating that they are de
sirous of putting themselves in com
munication with growers horn. The
p-ason for this lies iu the excellence
of some i:i carloads of prunes bought
iu Salem last year and shipis'il lo
Franco to supply delicieucy caused
by Ihe failure of the crops there.
Si eretarv of tho State Hoard of
Horticulture Lnuihi rson states that
owing to this eagerncKS on the part of
Kuros au buyers many of the prune
growers who had boeouui discouraged
have taken heart again and are look
iug forward to most favorable condi
tions. "Appb s are the main staph., how
ever," said Mr. I-imbcrnoii, "and
there is large planting of new orchards
throughout the tate. Chi-rrii m too,

The presi lit weather has fi'lvalie. d the

.NFLUENCE OF THE MOON
How Fair Luna. Is Supposed to
Affect Vi'eaiher and Crops.
Tho intlueiico of the moon on cli
matic aud crop conditions, while de
nied by science, has a wido belief
among tho people even of today,
which belief is shared by a great
many more people than will admit it
In faot, it does not require any great
stretch of credulity to believe that
the moon may liavo some effect on the
weather, since its control of the
tides is accepted as a scientific faot
Scientists tell us, however, that the
inllueuco of fair Luna is not extend
ed in that direction. Bo that as it
niav, it is probable 'that fully half
the iH'ople havo more or less belief in
the influence of the uioou on the
A less number extend thoir belief
further and credit the moon with con
trolling influence in tho matter of
growing p1'1 at iocs, the laying of
shingles and many other of tho ordi
nary aud every day pporations. If
you plant potatoes iu tho light of the
moon, they say, they will have flue,
thrifty tops but few and small pota
toes, while if they are planted in the
dark of tho moon, the energy of
growth will bo devoted to the under
ground portion of the plant and the
IHitaloes will luTlnrge and numerous.
Ill any of thu frequent discussions of
this alleged phenomenon, there are
never lacking witnesses who, them-
Ives disclaiming any belief In the
moou's inllueuco, will cite cases tend
ing to prove tho veracity of the
theory. Shingles for a root, so those
believing in tho efficiency of Luna
assert, should bo laid ill tho dark of
the moon, us (ho edges will theu warp
downward, making the roof tight. If
they are laid iu the light of the moon,
the edges are presumed to warp up
ward and Ihe roof will leak. Tho sot
ting of posts, tho killing of hogs aud
other rural operations are often tiiuod
to be done at the pricier stage of the
Hut by far tho most popular belief
in tho moon's inllueuco is iu its effect
on thu weather. Tho changes of the
moon are watched with interest aud
the changes iuthc'weather are expoct
ed to transpire accordingly. Tho hori
zontal or vertical position of the uuw
moon is supposed to presago the
quality of weather ,for thu coming
lunar mouth and the moon ,1s there
fore said to bo "wot" or "dry.'
Singular to slate, though, there is
here a disagreement among the
prophets as to the sort of weather
indicated by a certain position of the
moon. If the moon lies Hat ou its
backrsomo will toll you that it is a
"dry" moon because it will hold
water like a bowl. Others say it is
a "wet "moon, assuming that it is
full of water to start with and as the
hollow tills up thu water is crowded
out and falls ns rain. 1 Tho vertical
new moon is assumed to bo wet or
dry iu accordance with one or the
other of these theories. The Indian
belief seems to corroborate tho idi
that Ihe horizontal moon is the wet
variety, for if "Injun can't hang his
powder horn on Ihe moon" it is little
use to go hunting. As the best huut
iug time is alter u rain, the moon that
holds water may therefore lie con
sidered a wet one. Scientists and
leaned men may deny the moon's ill
lliioiiee but thu liclicf is deep seated
and it will bo many years before it
will cease to have many adherents.
Iu this country, the weather has i
free and easy, go as-you pleaso move
ut and breaks nil the rules of the
moon iu a hru.cnly disress:etful man
ner. This is not siipHised to have any
lleet in disproving tho theory, how
ver, as "all signs fail in Oregon. "
