It is noteworthy fact that never in the history of the public schools of this county has the progress made been so satisfactory as has been the caso during the'past two years. Very much of the credit" is due - to the excellent system established b-r Superintendent Cope- land arid the conscientious manner in Which he has performed his ofiicial work. . Mr. Copeland is an educator of the advanced class. He has made edu cational matters and methods a deep end earnest study. No other one in the county ia better equipped than he to perform such official work, and for that reason his renomination for bis present place ought to be, and undoubtedly is, am assured fact. It no other demand is made by the people of this county upon their repre sentative in the next legislature, who ever he may be, of whatever political faith, or whether he has any faith or not, the demand alioald be made upon him to use bis beat endeavors for the enactment of a law creating a state boaxd of equalization. The experience of one year's assessment in this state is quite enough, and as must be the case, one year more to follow with such redic nlously discriminate assessment work as has been done the past year throughout the. state, we believe the people will be a loud in their demands for a state board of equalization as they were a year ago clamorous for its abolition. Let's keep this matter in mind and "goad up" our next legislator. ,Now that opportunity ia about to present itself for progressive enter prise in our immediate vicinity, it ia strictly in keeping with the order of things for some old blatherskite to fling disparagement at it! Because an elec tion is approaching, everything, in the mind's eye of gome people, must be subordinated to that event. If people want to build a railroad they will build it, and in this instance in question the "want to" seems to be quite serious, but it certainly is too bad that capitalists have to be insulted and enterprise con demned by a decrepit-in-mind old shys ter) whose dominant ambition is to re tard progress by howling "political scheme." Sabby. In this instance how unfortunate it is that prosperity benefits the worthy and unworthy alike. Hokisty is always to be commended, and honesty in the long run, is certainly the best policy. Because someone has been dishonest, and reaps temporary benefit, it certainly does not follow that everybody should pursue the game dis honest methods. The assessment of Co lumbia county was justly, honorably and correctly made, there being no other policy that could be pursued with honor and justice, and the fact that such is the case speaks volumes for the integrity of those who conducted' the canvass. Be cause one man gets down into the mire of disregard for honorable things in or der to accomplish a little temporary re lie, does not open the right-of-way for others to follow in his unjust course. Notwithstanding the fact that the amount of money to be paid to the state this year is an unequal sum, let it be paid, but let an effort be put forth to check the abusive methods of those who take advantage 'of honor. The question naturally ariaes: Shall we go forward orjhall we go backward? As encouraging sign of progress that has already been made in the settlement of the Cuban question is the fact that 409 farmers and mechanics have just ailed from this country to Cuba, with the intention of establishing a perma nent American colony in the island. This colony is to be located near the port of Nuevitas, in the province of Puerto Principe, in a tract consisting of 61,000 acres of virgin forest. Most of the emigrant are from New York and the New England states, like the hardy pioneers who built np the great West, while Western and Southern states are also' represented, showing that the movement toward the colonization of the new territories is a national one. The fact that already American colonies are being projected in these regions is proof that the tide of emigration lias turned in that direction. With Ameri can colonies scattered throughout the islands, it is but a matter of time before the American sentiment will predomi nate and the Americanization be com plete. The disparity in ratio between the native inhabitants and the American aet.tlers is no bar to the accomplishment of this end. A few sturdy Yankees, in troducing Yankee ideas, will go far toward leavening the entire mass. Ir there be anything in signs, the coming year is going to be a hummer for business in this locality, in fact, throughout the county. Pawmills, wood flumes, logging railroads and logging tramways are projected by wholesale lots, and eveu it only a part of the con templated enterprises are brought to a realisation, there will be decided changes in old Columbia' borders. There never baa been time in the history of the county when prospects for new business enterprise were so good as at present. The natural resources are here in great variety and endless quantity, and why should we not have our dayT The lo cation of the county in proximity to the markets of not only our own domain, but to those of the world, is such as to command the investigation, utili sation and placement of capital in its rcleutless desire and search for invest uient, Timber,, oodles of it, mineral, too, in paying quantities, besides vast deposits of coal, which i said to be worth developing. And after these resources which natnra has so bounteously sup plied us with, are exhausted, if ever, the lands are capable of producing the best hay, fruit and grain of any region on the coast. Let it all come to pass ; we guess we can reconcile ourselves to our fate. Indications now seem to point to the fact that there will be but little conten tion for places on the republican ticket in the coming county convention. There will probably be a spirited contest for representative nomination, but it will be friendly, and all aspirants will cheer fully abide the decision of the delegates. Judge Doan will very likely be renomi nated by acclamation, as will also be the case with Mr. Watts for clerk, and Dr. Boss for treasurer. For sheriff and assessor there art a number of candi dates in the field, all good men, which means that the convention can make no mistake. We have heard of no opposi tion to Mr. Copeland for school superin tendent, and presume his nomination will be unanimous. For the office of county surveyor there is an open field, as is also the case with the commis sioner. No one seems to be willing to have the office of coroner saddled off on them because of the already certain task of burying an unusnally large num ber of defeated populist candidates. But in regard to the work to be done by the convention, the old saying that "the best laid plans o' mice and men," etc., mav be realized. A scheme is on foot among the popu list leaders for the calling of a national convention ahead of everybody else, and the nomination of Bryan and some good democrat on a populist platform. A more successful way of embarrassing Bryan and the democratic party could scarcely be found. And, come to think of it, have not the populists already a ticket in the field with Barton and Don nelly as leaders? That prosperity is in the land has been proven beyond the shadow of a doubt, as the following item from an exchange will witness : "The editor of a neighboring county paper was Inst week held up by two highwaymen and robbed of $263 in cash and notes." This fact removes all suspicion of hard times from the minds of those who are in the leastwise willing to be convinced. Tins request of Mr C. G. Caples in a communication which appears in this iHsue, that the matter of lands attached by the county for unpaid taxes, be placed in its proper light, is an excel lent idea, and we have made an effort to comply. It is to be presumed that such a discussion will have salutary effect upon the county's exchequer. The importance of regard for the re quirements of the registration law and an early compliance therewith will save voters and registering officers alike much trouble and worry. Do not put off this important matter, but register at once. Law is law ; be this one good or bad, its requirements must be com plied with. The state democratic central com mittee lias met in Portland and issued a call for a state convention on April 12th. Chairman Steele, of the republican com mittee, will soon call a meeting of that body, and the state republican conven tion will probably be held early in April. Ik all the prospective enterprises for Columbia county are realized and pros perity in greater slugs than now pre vails forces itself upon us, what on earth are the poppy's going to do? Will they move out? Never; they will remain to enjoy it with the rest of us. Asotheb member of the Oregon legis lature has gone to join the angels. 8. G. Uawson, representative from Gilliam county, in the lant scstion, shot and killed himself at the Esmond hotel in Portland, last Mondav. All over -a woman, too. Just think of it. There appears to be mistaken idea in the minds of many regarding registration thinking that only foreign ers are compelled to register. This is a great mistake. All must register, to save themselves trouble when they come to vote. Having a Great Hun on Chamber lain' Cough Remedy. Manager Martin, of the Pierson drag store, informs us that he is iiaving a great run on Chamberlain's Cough itemeuy. He sens nve bottles or that medicine to one of anv other kind, and it gives great satisfaction. In these days of la grippe there is nothing like Vimmoeriain i uoogn nemeay to stop the cough, heal np the sore throat and lungs and give relief within a very short tune. 1 ne sales are growing and all who try it are pleased with its orornnt action.

KOTICE TO TAXPAYKR8. To The Editor. I learned today from the county clerk that there are now more than 500 persons who have had their lands sold for back tax in the county, which was levied ten years ago. Most of these persons know nothing of the sale, thinking, and many knowing, the tax had long since been paid. It is a notorious fact that the sherilf's about that time were very crooked. One went crazy ; the other ran off to South Africa, and in consequence, the people are pay ing dear for it, and shou.d be warned of the dangers and probable logg of their lands and home. Allow me to say, 1 have great sympathy for those who have bought homes and made furms in this county, for I have lived here a long life time, since 1847, and have made two small farms ont of the timber, say noth ing of the hardnhips of standing off the Indians, in the attempt to build up a home in the wilds of Oregon. In many cases 1 have induced settlers into thin county, and at times have favorably represented and sold gome lands to set tlers, and now I do not want to see any one lose all, who is worthy. I have written to many persons, informing them of the situation of their land, but you know this is expensive and can only reach a few. You are aware that the subject of taxation baa, from the earliest creation of man, let it be conducted in ever so good a manner, caused the world to mourn. In view of thia fact, is it not best to approach the danger line with gome degree of moderation? Hoping yon will put this subject in its proper light, I remain, C. Or. Caklks. Columbia City, Ore., Jan. 17, 1900. Very Encouraging Outlook. The outlook for the coming fishing season on the Columbia river ia most encouraging, at least so far aa the amount of money that will be paid the fishermen for their labor is concerned, and that ia the portion of the industry that we are most vitally interested in. The eastern markets are almost bare of the canned product and every cannery and the cold storage man is anxious to secure aa large a quantity as posKible. While no price hag lieen fixed either by the nshcrmen'i union or the canners, the indications are that at the opening of the season, Chinooks will bring not less than 5 cents, and perhaps as much as 6 or 7 cents per pound. With any . . i-i t , t t.: ill lunigliaen inir rmt ut unii, tin win mean the distributing of a vast sum of money among our resident fishermen as wages. . .
