Straight Comment1 Oh Treatment
of Public Funds.
If the people of this state ever secun
any reforir in the management of theli
state taxes they can thank the present
financial eric la and the agitation of the
matter In the Journal The people
are determined to Mop further juggling
'with public taxes by county officials
and local bank?. Oregon Is in the piti
ful condition of having collected half
a million of elate taxes from the people
and having not a cent turned over to
the state treasurer according to law.
Twice as much more of county, cit)
and school funds is probably collected
and loaned out to money sharks and to
bolster weak banks all over the state.
County sberifls and treasurers have too
long been a law unto themselves, vio
lating the confidence of the people and
ignoring their obligations to the state.
There is no disposition to make the
matter worse than it is. The attempt
to suppress discussion of this great pu
He iniquity comes from those who have
reaped the profit of boodling the pub
lic taxes. It does not come from the
state officials. It is an abuse that has
been foBtored for profit by an unscru
pulous ring of money-changers and
boodlo politicians at Portland. They
are crying out,that there should be one
newspaper in the state to make their
corrupt practices prominent at a time
When It will educate the people to de
mand a better order of things in our
publlo revenues and a higher codo of
morality among those who handle the
publlo monies direct from the people.
There should be greater publicity in all
thceo matters from the stato funds
down to county, city and school funds.
Discussing this subject a Portland
paper tho Telegram bos tho follow
ing scathing rebuko to the tax boodle re:
What is the difference between steal
ing under the guise of law and Bleating
contrary to law? What shall we think
ot tho morality of the Porttuud banks
that liavo confessedly been doluir busi
ness with stato funds, city funds, coun
ty ninus, any tunas nut meir own
funds, and all these public taxes paid
by the people? Capital Jouknal,
The Portland bunks are not alone. It
is tho uulversal practice throughout the
state to deposit publlo funds In the
banks, becauso the law has made no
other provision for the custody of the
mouoy. It Is also tho uulversal prac
tice for tho bunks to use these funds as
if tho money belonged to them and was
not committed to them In fiduciary
trust. Tho practice Is most reprehcu
alblo, yet it Is moio the fault of the
legislature and of tho state constitution
than it is of tho state and county oftl
clals. It has gone so long without pro
test being mude against it that the
banks look upon It as their Bpeclnl per
quisite, and has led to tho additional
evil of allowing banks and bauk oill
cers to become bondsmon for tho publlo
officials who handle the mouoy.
There ure two remedies for this. One
Is to havo certain bunks designated as
depositories of publlo funds and thou
require thorn to executo and file special
bonds to cover tho publlo deposits; aud
to further require them to pay Interest
on suoh deposits. Tho other remedy Ib
to tuako the publlo treasury m fact what
it la in name the plaoe of deposit for
publlo funds. The btate aud each coun
ty should have Its own vaults, and tho
treasurer made enstodtuu thereof, Then
there would bo no temptation to juggle
with tho public funds, The collecting
officers would have to deposit lu the
vaults before taking a receipt from the
treasurer. If the treasurer took tho
money out of the vaults and deposited
It la a bauk, he would be guilty of ein
The evil of the prevulllug system was
exemplified right here iu Portlaud,
. where the bank oraab,- was precipitated
by a fight between two rival bapklug
institutions for control or the county
money. How much Josa there will bo
to state aud county Is yet a conjecture,
but we know enough to say that it Is
going to boa hard rub for the taxpayers.

A view on our city shows times are
not so hard as many seem to think. On
one fine farm near Salem a threshing
machine runs from 5:30 a. m., to 8 p. ro.
turning out the golden grain. The men
get $1.50 to 12.50 a day. Single wagons
roil 70 to 100 bushels of grain to mill at
Salem and get the money for it. Hoj

over Portland and Oregon City,

no grounds for apprehension of calam

now buildings going up and consider

MoMlBtoes? 'Well? I should say so,"
exclaimed genial' Captain Veazey of the
steamer Enoch Pratt. H? had been asked
' f this was a good seafon for the birds.
"Why, th?e are billons of them down
and Virginia? We'eatrgbt-it-at Deal's
island recently. There was a land breeze,
and the mosquitoes swarmed about the
boat. Every one was lean and hungry
and seemed to want a square meal, and
from the wny we felt when we got away
tWyrhnst have got it. They are bad
in Somerset. I've got a farm four miles
from Princess Anne and wanted to go
no and see if my wheat had been har
vested properly, but was afraid of the
mosquitoes. I haven't been yet."
Just why the mosquitoes are so nu
merous this year no ono seems to know.
A great many persons attribute the in
crease to tho warm, wet spring, while
others say the mo&quitoes are just like
peaches aftertwoorthreeyears in which
they are comparatively scarce there will
be a tremendous crop. This was the view
taken by a party of steamboat men who
sat on one of the wharves along Light
street yesterday and grumbled about the
hot weather. Amosquito which bad just
arrived on one of the bay boats landed on
the neck of, one of the party and was get
ting his or rather her dinner when she
was killed by a vicious swipe of her vic
tinu "There's another 'skceter done
for," remarked the murderer, with satis
faction. "He won't bother anybody else
in this yere vale o' tears."
"She, not he," corrected another.
"Don't you know that a he 'skeeter' nev
er bothers anybody? It's the females
that make all the trouble jn this world,
and that applies to 'skeeters' just-tho Bame
as" it does to women. If all 'skeeters
were hes we wouldn't have any trouble
from them, just the same as if all human
beings were men we'd have things more
quiet and peacefullike, A he 'skeeter"
doesn't live long, Go down along the
water in the snring and you will see bil
lions and billions of them, 'woolly heads,'
we call them. But you can get right in
among them and have them so thick
around you that you can't see through
them, and you will not be bitten. They
only live long enongh to provide for the
next season's crops, and then they die,
leaving the she 'skeeters to make man
kind miserable till cold weather comes."
Baltimore Sun.
The Importance of Good CooklPK,
A good cook is a treasure a mistress
rarely wishes to offend. How often
does one hear a woman say something
like tho following, after recounting
faults of a most serious character on the
part of her coek: "Still I cannot afford
to part with her, for she is a far better
cook than I can get elsewhere. Sho sat
isfies my husband better than any we
havo had, and you know how difficult
ho is to please. There is no peace if his
dinner does not pleaso him."
"If a woman is at the mercy of the
cook, and 6he is not good," as a writer 1
havo already quoted has remarked, "her
table will soon become intolerable. Bad
soup, soft and flabby fish, meat burned
outsido and raw within the husband
will soon fly from tho Barmecide feast
and take refuge in his club, whoro he
will not only find food that he can di
gest, but at the same time fly from the
domestio discord that usually accom
panies ill cooked victuals at home."
Bad cookery may seem a small thing
in comparison with other evils, but the
results are as dire as those that followed
the proverbial lost nail in the horse's
shoo wasted incomes, impaired health,
drinking habits, family discord. Bad
cookery, more often than not, causes
"tho little rift within the lute" which
by and by makes the music of married
life mute. "Whom God hath joined in
matrimony ill cooked joints and ill
cooked potatoes haveoftenputasunder."

Tho dangers that lurk unseen in the
air form tho subject of an essay by M.
do Nansouty on "The Atmosphore of
Largo Towns and Micrography." He
points out tho increased pollution of tho
air m iJarts from the factories worked
by steam machinery and remarks that
vapors which contain sulphur are spe
cially disastrous to tho lungs, since tho
sulphur which they contain is trans
formed into sulphurous acid and then
into sulphuric acid, which falls back to
the earth with the rain and fog. An
analysis of dust particles reveals that a
remarkable collection of diverse objects
may bo absorbed at every breath in tho
streotof a largo city silox, chalk, plas
ter, pulverizod rock, charcoal, hairs,
fibers, vegetable refnso, starch, jxjllen
cells, etc. A specimen of dust collected
from fnrnituro on tho third floor of a
street in Henries coutained all this and
nearly 3,000,000 bacteria in addition. A
gram, of dust (about 15 grains) in move
ment in tho Btreets incloses about 180,
000 bacteria. The dust of house, then,
is for more dangerous. M. de Nansoutv
concludes that it is of incalculable ira-
portance to dovoto Incessant attention
