Capitalists ami Leading llusinesi Men
Discuss the Importance of Willa
About two dozen of the leading
capitalists and business men of Sa

some steps toward putting the
Willamette university on a liriDii
clal basis, and providing n ntutal.lt

hud for a cumpu", that will not
only fill the present demands but
for all further wants in that line.
W.J. Herren was chosen chulrmun
of the meeting and O. M. Smith
' Geo. P. Hughes was called on to
state the object of the meeting. He
responded by giving the exact finan
cial situation of the school and its
present needs. Mr. Hugliesis secie
tary of the hoard of trustees and
keeps a record of all money received
und paid out und fully understands
the wants of tho school. He spoke
of what the citizens hud done for
the school and what it hud done for

of the University to hold it in Ha

moving along quietly are now tak

of the institution at Salem, and
they are willing to work for tliut
Dr. Bowlttnd, Judge Henry nud
others spoke iu favor of the citizens
taking the matter in hand and mak
ing tho Willamette a grat school.
Judge Henry said lie cuine to Salem
for the reason that tlio University ii
here ami that .Salem is tlio onl.s
proper home for tlio school.
The uuanlmou-i voice of those
present last night was that the citi
zens should rally around (In; school
and give a strong support. The
following resolution was adopted by
a unanimous vote.
"Hesolved, thai we, as citizens of
Salem, realize the inportunce of
the WIMiuuetto university to this
community, and realize its need for
more educational facilities, and be
lieve It our duty to use all legiti
mate means to place that institu

mauds beiiig made upon it."
Messrs. Judge Henry, II. W. Cottle
and 10. M. Wailu were appointed a
committee to devise ways and means
to carry cut the intent of tho meet

AtSAIN.YT OUKOON III
Hep. Miller, of the committee ou
railroads, has ptepured a bill on the
itbovo subject. It declares that rates
shall bujustland reasonable, and as
Hep. Oeer's bill gives tlio commis
sion full power to secure, establish
and enforce such rates the bill is
along tlio line of good policy.
The IniporUint clause of thu bill is
Section 3. That It shall be unlaw
ful for any common carrier subject
io i tie provisions ot tins Act to
charge or receive any greater com
pensation for a like service In the
transportation of freight iu carload
lots of a similar class per ton per
mile between jioluts lu tho Stale of
Oregon, than It charges or receives
per ton per mile for freight of a sim
liar elms destined to uroriginatingat
common points outside of tho limits
of this State: provided, this section
shall not apply on shipniunts with
In the State ot Oreirou for distances
under one hundred miles.
Tills proviso at tlio ond of this sec
tion raises many questions too
many, and would, ton great extent,
defeat the operation of tills act.
What the shippers of this state aru
now sintering from is excessive local
rates, as compared with low rates
granted to shhuters without tho
state to points in Oregon. The eor
lHimtlon system at present Is to give
all the advantage of low rates to
long haul ami competitive points,
hence discriminations :ignins.t iiianu

Taxing Notes nnd Moitgages.
Euitoh JouitSAi.: I wish,
through your valuable paper, to
give my views on u subject, the un
derstanding of which I deem of the
utmost importance in furthering I
the prosperity of Oregon. I refer to
the taxation of the evidences of
debt. The law as nt present on the
statute books distinctly states that
money, notes und mortgages shall
be taxed. To show how unjustly
the law works I wish to cito you an
I lived in Wasco county aud had
two thousand dollars. I loaned It
to a man iu Marion county taking
his note and mortgage. The asses
sor called ou me to clve a list of my
money, notes, etc., and I listed, a
iu duty bound, the two thousuna
dollar note. The assessor of Marion
county assessed the mortgage to me i
in Aluriou county, ami i paw, be
cause I strictly followed the law, on
four thousand dollars worth of prop
erty, i hud occasion to examine
the tax return of the gentleman to
whom I loaned the two thousand
dollars nnd I found this condition or
ufi'uirs: The property upon which I
held a two thousand dollar mort
gage, wen worm nve tuousauu,
dollars assessed at two thounnd five
hundred dollars, and I found no
money returned, (now what became
of that two thousand dollars I
loaned?) and a deduction of two
thousand dollars; consequently on
account of the five thousand dollars
nearly all escaping taxation the rate
ou my mortgage was made that
much hiirher. Now, then, I was
honest, too honest in fact, and so I
sullered, and the rogue escaped. In
order for me to prosper I must also
bo a rogue as I do not wish to be a
rogue my only remedy is to loan my
money where it receives just and
honest;treatnient through the laws,
which I cannot get in Oregon.
I now wish to call your readers'
attention to the equity of taxing
only property, nnd making no de
ductions of any kind for debt. To
make this matter plain, to the think
ing reader I oiler an Illustration
which must be carefully considered.
else my train of thought cannot be
followed. I have three thousand
dollars iu cash, gold or silver coin,
which I consider property, and as
such taxable. That three thousand
dollars is worth eight cents on every
dollar for use. I am using It, therefore
it is worth eight cents to ni", and
the assessor should assess it at three
thousand dollars; no more, no less.
I now make a voluntary exchaug
of that three thousand dollars for a
farm, believing that I can earn eight
per cent off the farm. An argu
ment introduced hero that the farm
will not earn eight per cent is no
argument because I enteied into the
exclninge voluntarily, therefore T
am supposed to know my business
as well as those who make such
statements. I have now exchanged
one class of property for another,
and am no richer, co poorer; for my
farm will earn me a leturn of eight
per cent us well as tho money. 1
now borrow one thousand dollars, 1
then huyo four thousand dollars
worth of property, and should pay
taxes on the four thousand dollars of
value. Iu borrowing this money I
hnply overdrew my account at my
Jiaiik one thousand dollars and con
soqueutly have given no note, but
ilio bank charges me eight per cent
interest. Now then what injustice
is there in my paying taxes ou that
four thousand dollars worth of
value? Now then I give the bank
a note, but have I cliauged our rela
tive positions any as possessors of
property? 1 go still fuither nnd
give the bauk a mortgage on my
farm, but have I changed the posi
tion of tho pove.ilon of the prop
erty ? A junt law would make me
pay on the four thousand dollars
worth of property I own, nud it
would be a practical law since tho
Mntetisses-csoiily propertyond I own
all tho property in the transaction.
Thepresent law, however, says since
I borrowed the money of the bank,
the bunk shall toudur a return of
the nntount (no note or mortgage
tnkun)nud pay taxes ou it. What
is the conseqtioneu? I pay to the
bauk a higher rate to cover tlmt
amount and am no gainer. Since I
deduct the one thotuand from the
four thoiiBuud tho statu is no gainur
in taxes, hut allows the property
which I hold to ocape and holds ilie
hank for the tax because it holds me.
Since only property should bo taxed,
the state departs from a fixed princi
ple of taxing the property, and
taxes the Individual, and should the
Individual walk over the state line
no tax eau be collected. The true
principle lu this quurtiou of taxa
tion Is io tax property ouly, and real
state aud perMMial property are the
ouly two clasis, and any law mak
ing pefefliial property real-ostate. or
making tbe deed to property the
property iWelfU otiuoxloue.unequal,
