HI USCUli'TION", H.M VKIt YKAH. St. Hki.kns, Skptbmrbr 18, 1891. HOSE PUBLIC HIGHWAYS NEEDED, Columbia county, financially, is in fully as goad circumst.inou as mott of the counties of tho statu, in fact in far iSettor condition than o great many others; yet we are greatly in need ol roads anil bridge through the iiiterior ways by tfliich the formers can reach h market with their produce, and by which new settlers may reticli their claims not by means of a piick'liorse by good wagon thoroughfares, with L'ootl substantial bridges serosa the creeks ami swamps. This is what Co lumbia county is most in need of, and Iter growtu will be blow until this re iiuireitient is adhered to. Very tr,,0 those of our peoole who live along the river front do not feel the necessity of roads and bridges so keenly ; but When we take into consideration that a town without some means of support behind it cannot meet with much success, we cannot help yielding to the demands of the interior to a certain degree. The prosperity of any non-nmnilfactur- ing section of country depends princi pally upon the farmer. What sup ports the river front; is it st'U-support ing? Not by any means. Then does it not follow that what benefits one section, alike benefits the other? Good liieiiwATs are the best indication of prosperity. This county has thousands of acres of eood land which will, in taie, with some encouragement in road matters, be made permanent homes for hundreds of people who are coming here from the East in search of government land, and, of course, will settle up the localities where there are the most favorable opportunities offered first. It does not make a good showing for a county to have a large bank account and at the same time her people suffering for want of public highways and public institutions. Therefore, we think that instead of striving so hard to create a surplus in the treasury we should, for the pur pjses above mentioned, v.irry a little larger indebtedness, if necessary, and extend these public improvements, thereby encouraging an agricultural diss of immigration, making more population, more taxable property, and consequently decreasing the rate of taxation in the end. We want to reach out for the borne-seekers; offer them encourogemeut in every possible man ner, and in the near future the profit on the investment will have no parallel NON-RESIDENT REAL ESTATE. The non-resident, heretofore non taxable, real estate in Columbia county, as shown by the abstract just com pleted by Moore & Cole, show 34,000 acres of Und within this county that never has been assessed, consequently lias never paid one cent of taxes. Take this 34,000 acres, say at a valua tion of $2 50 per acre, Which is a very low estimate, for some of this non resident ladd is claimed to be worth as high as $6, $8 and some as high as If 10 per acre. But for instance we place the uniform value of $2 50 per acre on the whole, 34,000 acres would be assessed at $85,000. The tax levy last year was 25 mills, this multiplied by 85,000 equals $2125 due the county in taxes had this property been in shape so that the assessor could have described it. The people have com plained of high taxes, and yet this vast amount of land, owned princi pally by non-resident speculators, has gone untaxed and unclaimed since the couuty was first organized. The owners of this land have never had their titles recorded on the county rec ords, hence the only reme dy was to have a complete county abstract made giving the description of all thb land not on record in the clerk's office. This has been done, and the present county court deserve the highest com mendation for the course they have taken in securing for the county means by which in the future these speculators can be competed to pay this tax.' The cost to the county of preparing the abstract is about $1200, which sum will a great deal more than be received the first year. This is as it should be, and in the future Columbia county will be in line with the procession ot other prosperous counties of this state, and the hereto fore untaxed real estate held by speca lotors will be advertised and sold to pay the taxes thereon as soon as such become delinquent. This is the year of our Lord 1891, and people are wont to, talk about our wonderful civilization and culture, and yet ft Wm but the other day that an admission fee of 25 cents a head was charged by the officials of a North Carolina jail to see two colored pris oners given thirty-nine lashes On their bare backs, and, if the newspaper ac counts are to be believed, the gate money Was sufficient to pay all ex pense of the exhibition. We are at a loss for a proper name for a man who will pay to eee such a punishment in flicted upon another man. Tub New York democrats in con vention Wednesday nominated Eos well P.

In the matter of the transcripts and cost bills in the case of the state of Oregon vs. A. H. Larsen, and state of A Perfect Baking Powder. The constantly growing demand for Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder, the standard cream tartar powder for forty years, is due to two causes. FIRST: The extreme care exercised by tho manu facturers to make It perfectly pure, uniform in quality, and of highest raising power. SECOND; The recent investigations exposing thd fact that certain other brands of baking powder contaiA ammonia and still others that were found to contain alum. These unscrupulous manufacturers are being found out, and the consumers are giving them a wide birth. Nothing is left to chance in the manufacture of Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder. Chemists are employed to test every ingredient as to purity and strength. Hence; its marvelous purity and uniformity. Each can is like every other. It never dissapoints.. BEST is ALWAYS the CHEAPEST. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is re ported by all authorities as free from Ammonia, Alum, or any otber adulterant In fact, the purity of this ideal powder has never been questioned.

The following is tho report fur the week coding, Saturday, September 12, 1891: WK8TBRN ORKOOM. Weather The temiwrnture ha been lower, yet above tho average. The atmos plic r bus been elca.cr of smoke, the weather has been partly cion.ly and local showers prevailed during tha later part of the week Crops The showers hove done no ma terial damage, they have del.iyed some late threshing, and fome-ivlut retarded hop picking in a few sections. Tho thresh ing of grain is practically over, only a few small lots yet remain to be thre-hed The wheat Is being delivered to warehouses anil elevators: The wheat prwhiet was never better, the berry Is of Hie first grade, the yield has been heavy, generally more t'.ia i was anticipated. Large yiiMs are rejiorted from every county. In Washington county for example, one farm yielde t 4'1 bushels per acre, another 34 bushels per ai re Smut is more generally reported than uoi illy, though it is not tlii-i year so very extendve , spring whrat is more tilei'tcd than full wheat. The oat crop has been good but not as propoi tiouatoly good a the w heal crop. Hop-picking will be about finished next week, unless tho tecent rains should delay the pickers ni fre than Is now expec ted The hops of Douglas county were supp sed tu be free from I ce and mould, but on pictinjr, some yards are found to I'C badly damaged. No lice are observable in Josephine county. It is estimated that lice and mould have damaged the hop crop lo the extent of $.100,000. In Jackson and Josephind counties corn is ripe of good quality and yield. Bummer fallowing is in proaress in many of the Willamette val ley counties. EASTERN ORKGOX Weather A few showers haveocenrred. The temperature has been cooler and about the average. There has keen less smoke in the atmosphere.. In the Interior counties. on the higher elevations frost occurred. Crops The showers did no damage. Threshing is in progress in some tedious, and in some counties it is nearly done. In Wasco and in parts of Sherman counties the wheat is more shrunken than in the other counties Yields of forty bushels and upwards are frequent in Morrow, limatilla and I'niuii counties; in the latter county. In Tinker, Wallowa anil interior counties harvesting and threshing is well along, lteports indicate yields nhove the average and anove the expeciatlons ot the tarmers in every county, i lie wneat lius begun to move to seaboard. Fruit con tinues plentiful. Grapes are rio in many localities. B. 8. PAOt'K, Observer. To Subscribers, Old and New.
