out for the defendants, represented by
Arthur and Carson. Tho plaintiffs
tried to play a game of bluff all the
way through, winding up with an ar
ray of counsel that it was hoped
would Intimidate tho court. On tho
findings tho court sold they nover had
a partlclo of ovidonce, and there Is a
moral. certainty that no successful ap

for plaintiffs gave this away when thoy

grounds for an appeal, ahd 'probably

Tho Initiative takon by tho Orogon
Law School Journal, ,of Salem, in tho
campaign against what is termed
"tax-dodging" is developing hearty
support all over tho state. It sooma
that In somo of tho counties many r'os
donta havo given In but a fraction of
their wealth, and tho nood for somo
remedy Is Yory apparent
Tho Idea of tho Law Journal is to
publish In a county papor the assess
ment of each porsona llablo to assess
ment In a county, boforo tho board of
equalization moots. This publication
is now required In sovoral states, and
In Illinois tho effect has been magical.
Each poraon is made awaro of hla
neighbor's list of proporty given In to
tho assessor, and It such neighbor
omits any of his proporty subject to
nesoasmont ho is compelled to hasten
Us correction. This law has brought
about a revolution In thafc state with
regard to equal and Just taxation, and
It Is almost Impossible for ono to os
capo his Just proportion of tho taxoo.
It occurs to tho Nows that this ia
an excollent Idea And slnco tho spo-
ing preserved by many, wo aro confi
dent that it will result In good. But it
must bo homo in mind that tho list
comprises only a small portion of the
assossmont rolls; and wo aro confi
dent that tho publication of tho entire
tax roll by tho county boforo tho
equalization board moots would result
In a moro cqultablo apportionment of
tho burdon of taxation, and would
much mor,o than pay for tho expense
