JANUARY 2, 1900.
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.

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.

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
