AND WE REMEMBER. ,
All this implication of tbe county
court in relation to high taxes amounts
to praotioally nothing, and the friends
of Mr. Gilliland are weloome to make
all out of it they can for oampaigu
purposes. Tbe orux of the tax ques
tion fioes beyond the probate court
of -any county. When yon plaoe it
where it aotualJy belongs it'resti with
tbe legislature. There may be honest
differences of opinion in tbe contrac
tion of county roads, for, instanoe.
But the present high taxes are not
caused by road bnilding in Umatilla
oonnty no, not on your ' tin-type.
' Tbe apportionment for loads in this
oonnty this year is not A 1-2 mills, bo
let us proceed direot to tbe real tax
factory. Recently the Portland Jonr
nal took tbla squib from the Portland
Oregonian as a text for an article:
"Tbe state must be extiloated from
tbe tax bog in wbiob it has been
plunged by too liberal expenditures of
, poblio money. Tbe Oregonian does
, not at all soy that. Governor West is
solely responsible for present pondi
tions. -Everybody is responsible

"Oregon will quite likely go dry in
November. The .state-wide prohibi
tion sentiment is already strong In
this state, and will be fanned into
flame ty tbe small army of anti-saloon
spellbinders who are te flock Into
Oregon, beginning next April. '
"Bot although Oregon is voted dry,
it doesn't follow that tbe state will be
dry in fact." Tbe same old problems
will arise, tbe same old gam-shoe and
speak-easy aobemes of law evasion
that have aooompanied prohitition
elsewhere. Tbe oanse will continue
to suffer beoanse of tbe virtual part
nership between tbe federal govern
ment and tbe liquor tiaffio. Tbis
oonstitotes too great a handicap.
"What tbe Leader would like to
see is the saner amoant of ! effort de
voted to national, prohibition that is
now devoted to desultory, - piecemeal
and ineffective prohibition. Before
long one of the great parties would
weep the country on a platform to
prohibit tbe manufacture and sale of
intoxicating beverages and deolariug

Before long Congress' would bend to
