What is the law as to public taxes:
The sheriff of each county shall turn
over to the county treasurer each week
all the taxes collected by him. The
county treasurer shall pay to the staU
treasurer out of the first monies re
ceived by him the taxes due the state.
Has that been done? No, Half a
dozen counties have paid their state
tax. A score or more are defaulters to
the state in total turn of half a million.
Multnomah alone owes $202,000 stati
tax for 1802, and a large sum for 1891,
on a judgment in the supreme court.
The state treasurer has no power to
enforce payment except by suit and no
penalty attaches for withholding the
What can be done? A suit should
be begun at once In the circuit court of
come county on the bond of some coun
ty sherlfTor county treasurer to test the
question whether a plain statute has
any binding force In this state. If It
has not, let a law be enacted that will
stop the lodgment of the public taxes
In the hands of private manipulators.
This stato will never secure reform in
its finances until tax collectors can be
forced to account for the people's con
A general law should be passed re
quiring public officials who have charge
of publio money to deposit It in no bank
except on a legal limit of ten per cent
of its capital. If a bank has (200,000
capital it could hold (20,000 of public
money on deposit at once and no more.
and that should only be hold on proper
bonds being given by parties other than
the bank officials.
That would stop tho sheriff and treas
urer at Portland conducting rival bunks
with publio taxes, and putting bun
dreds of thousands of the pooplo's
money Into a bank regardless of Its
standing or credit. A law like that
would force tho distribution of publio
funds among tho different banks so
that the stato could never bo lu the hu
mlllatlng attitude of having all Its
money tied up In the suspended banks,
while the sound banks do not hold any
of the unremitted taxes.

Dun's Review Aug. 19: Themachln-
ry of exchanges has almost stopped,
When $30 per 11,000 had is for New Yoit
'xchanges at Chicago, and $15 or $20 at
oher Western cities, settlements be
tween the East and West, which ordi
narily amount to $3,200,000,000 in a
year, become extremely difficult. Even
the New York Central could not get
currency here on checks of the Boston
& Albany, and was obliged to Bend to
Boston for the money. The root of
the trouble is that, according to reports
if July 12th to the comptroler, over
$131,000,000 of deposits had been wlth
Irawn in two months from part of tbe
National Banksnd probably $177,000.
000 from all, besides unknown sums
from savings, stato and private banks,
tnd during the month, since July 12th,
the withdrawal and hoarding must
have been relatively even greater. A
premium of 1 to 2 per cent Is paid for
old, and 3 to 4 per cent, for currency.
The government is printing $1,250,000"
bank notes dally. The clearing bouse
has issued $6,000,000 more certificates,
and the hope is that confidence
may be revived and hoardings un
locked. The arrest of industry goes so far
that a third of tbe iron production
ceased In the month of July, and tbe
consumption of Iron in manufacture
diminished 46 per cent, from May 1 to
July 1. Not even this shrinkage stimu
lates demand enough to support prices,
which remain tbe lowest on record,
and further stoppages In August have
reduced the weekly output below 100,
000 tons. Copper has declined to 0J
cents and lead to 3 cents, with narrow
trade, Shoo shops are looking in vaiu
for further orders, and last week's ship
ments from Boston were 10,100 cases or
20 per cent. leas than those of the same
week last yer. At Fall River alone
700,000 spindles stopped on Saturday,
and the whole number of spindles, in
all tho Southern states, la said to be-less
than the number now idle lu New Eng
land. Even more than lack' of orders,
want of confidence In the Integrity of
brders troubles the textile mills, fur
cancellations multiply. The Wamsutta
has lowered prices of goods 7J and 7
per cent, and while jobbers find a bet
ter demaud for dress goods, and the sit
uation as to knit goods Is considered
'strong, tho sales bf wool at the three
largest markets wore only 1.570,750 lbs.
or tho latest week, against 9,220,700
lb?., for tho sarao week last year. Since
May 3d the decrease compared wltb
last year has been 55 per cent.

jwant of cash, It-la Bald, accounts for
tho retarded movement of wheat from
furnia to Western markets, and exports
have nrtraet expectations of late, so
that the prices of grain have somewhat
declined. Pork products are sold more
largely for export this week, but cotton
has yielded an eighth, stocks of 880,000
bales here, and 1,885,000 American
abroad, bolng too heavy when many of
the mills are stopping. Coal Is dull,
and the output Is much restricted by
the difficulty of getting money for
Iwages. The movemont ofauiuials Is

are fairly maintained, aud hog packing
