HOG M DISCUSSION AGAIN Correspondent Contends That the Law m Inoperative. liases His Argument on the Fact Uiat It l not Written In the l)iukLaw tjuoukj. VituaoKiA. Jan. 15. (To the K.lltor.l I toe by tho Inst issue of Tux Mist that you say there la a hog law. I will ask why you did not cite your reader, to the auction in tne statuu: which give It and tells what the law Is and what the pen alties are for its violation, instead of say ing that certain justices ol the peace canvassed the vote, aud that there were so many for and so many against hotts running at large. If there is a law, aa vou say mere la, you have certainly seen It lu the statute. ; or are yon like our friend. Priugle, in here, who, when one says there Is no hog law be produce an old lite of Thk Mint, which he has that published the vote the time the bog law waa voted on, to prove there la a hog law. That I no proof to me. If it is in the atatute that would be proof con clusive to me. I know it wa voted and carried In favor of a hog law. but 1 it a law If it I not to be found lu the stat utes? If there would be a suit brought before a justice would he so to the hie of Th Mimt to get hi law to determine the case, or would he go, a I would, to the statutes. I will say that I have searched the statute and aession laws for a hog law for Columbia county, and tailed to una it if it there. The law book tells bow a county may get a hog law, out it tt is voted and not put in the law book it ia no law without we uae tbe file of Th Mut a our law book. Alvbeo Bhammaham. We ara iclsil the centleman ha spoken. The way i now open to a full discussion of the "hog law." The cor respondent evidently lis little laitn lu thaitatute which provide that people may make law for their own particular case. The "bog law", in Columbia county is law, for In ita adoption the people ol tne county followed the direc tion of the (tatute of the state in order to get the law ; and having pro ceeded according to law to get law. it i just aa binding and bolden aa though it were written in a dozen place in tne law book of th state. One cannot find in the atatutea of the atata every ordinance adopted by the city councils of the sev eral incorporated cities and town of the state. But you can find those law in the book of ordinance of the city or town. and they are law becauae tbe atatutea of the atata provide bow uch ordinancea may become law. and the people having proceeded according to the atatutea in order to make those ordinancea binding the state win see to it that they are binding. The same methods apply to the "hog law" in this county. The leg islature told tbe people of this county how they could get a "hog law," ana the people having proceeded in the premise according to to tbe (tatutee, everything being regular, which we nave no reason to aount wa regular. then wa aay emphatically that if any law hi the atate of Oregon ia binding ao 1 the law in this county relative to hogs running at large. For the information of the correspondent or any others, we here quote portlou ol the atatutea that the facta in the cose may be mora easily seen and clearly understood: "KaMtitti Silll Mn Ilia nAtitlnn nf (ins 'hundred or more legal voter of any 'countv in thi atate being filed with "th county clerk before tbe time of "giving notice of the general election in "any year, the county clerk ahall cause "notice to be given that at such election 'a vote will be taken in eucn county 'for and againat awine running at large." And the succeeding tection prescribe the manner of placing the matter before tbe voter on tbe official ballot, and tbe manner of determining tbe reiuit ol tne ballot. , 'Section 8418. If a msioritv of all "the votea cast ahall be againat awine "running at large, the county clerk "ahall give notice, by publication in aims newaoaner In hta county lor "three consecutive weeka, that in aixty "days from the data ol aald notice it will be umawiut lor awine w run ai 'lorve. under penalty of five dollar for "the tint offense and ten dollar for each "and every lubsequetit offense, to be recovered from tne owner ot (tie awine "by civil action In the name of the "Htate of Oregon,' before a iuttlce of "the peace of the precinct in which "such owner or keeper, or either of "them may reaide." ,-. The correspondent will please notice that tha act ia to be "brought "in the name of the atata of Oregon," and the nenalty ia "16 and II U" respectively. these extracts from the law are cer tainly sufficient to convince the average mind that everything being regular, tha act of houa running at large ia this county ia strictly againat tne law. Wa presume that aufflcient Of tne neonle of the counties mentioned in the statute making it unlawful for hoga to run at large asked tne legislature io so specify, and the succeeding sections were nrovided as a license for other counties to adopt the same law at an t in the resident saw Dt to taxe sua action, prescribing the method of pro cedure. - It any justice of the peace is iu doubt as to the outcome of the ballot which wa taken" tn thi county on the propo sition at the general election held on the 6th day of June, 1S88, let him ad dress tbe county clerk, who will gladly snnnlv him with a certified coov of the canvaee of the vote, thence proceeding In the manner prescribed in section imo, volume 2, Hill' Annotated Law of Ore gon, and we have no fear but what his official acta would ba affirmed by the hiehor court in case of a contest. We would not suggest that the corres pondent go to tbe tiles of Tua Mibt for hi law, but wa might recommend him to the file of Tua Mist for evidence of the exUtence of the law. Hats Yeaaff Atata.

A government analyaia of the Oregon hemlock bark for tbe purpose of ascur tainiug its taunlug properties will be made by tne aepariment oi agriculture. Secretary Wilson hn announced that he will order the analysis made upon the receipt of samples and issue the govern ment certificate on Ibe result. No au thoritive annlysi. of this bark for tanning purposes has ever been made but unoffi cial Wats have shown '17 per cent, of tannic acid. Compared with thi the Eastern oak, which is the article most extensively used for tanning purposes, only shows 10 per cent and the Eastern hemlock falls t aa low as 7 per cent. These testa, if tbey shall beau betatitiated by the goverment' analysis, prove that thousand of tons of hemlock bark which annually go to waste in this country may be converted to good use and b the meana of establishing a new industry on the Pacific coast. . Riscusefng the river and harbor bill and the appopriatioa it wiii carry for the Columbia river. Congressman Tongue say: "The bill when introduced in cvugrm will carry an aypruui inou of m,W) for the Columbia river. , It will go further aud authorise the secretary of war to contract for tbe improvement of toe uoinmuia river to tne amount oi $l,o00,000. It is possible that these two turns, with $2oO,UUU already appropri ated may complete tha entire improve ment, but at least It I all the money that can possibly be expended in the next two year, before the next river and harbor bill will be passed. I had at one- time tha authority of the com niittee to Insert a provision letting the entire contract for the entire aurn.
