Mosquitoes are found in al-
dinance setting up a new sched-
ule of occupational taxes. The
taxes include every type of bus­
iness operating within the city
as well as itinerant merchants,
house to house canvassers and
others of that type.
The wisdom of saddling an­
other tax upon the merchants of
the town is debatable, of course.
On the other hand, they doubt­
less will appreciate protection
from outside competition, pro­
viding the ordinance furnishes
that sort of protection. The fal­
lacy of most ordinances of this
kind is that they seldom are
enforced, the situation lapsing
in time to its old status after
interest in the new measure sub­
sides. Rainier’s Council recent­
ly discussed such an ordinance
but was advised that it would
not be lawful. It might be well
to observe the Vernonia system
in operation to see how it works
out. If it proves a success we
might wall emulate the policy '
of our neighbor in the hills.
