The whole question of assessment should be thoroughly examined and dlB cussed by the people of Clatsop county, There la a strong conviction that the county 1 paying more than Its rightful . share of the state taxes. On the as WHument last yeur a levy of 22 mills was made, comprising state, national guard, state university, school, county and road taxes. The first three Items named qicnprlse the! state taxes, the levy for these three purposes was 7 mills, and the amount $39,901.82. The remain der, $85,603.88, was made up as follows School tax, 6 mills, 128,501.29; county tax, 8 1-2 mills, $48,452.20; rood tax, 1 1-2 mills, $8,550.39. The people . are convinced that Clatsop pays taxes on a higher valuation than Is used In other counties In determln Ing the amount of taxable property. Of course, the state board la expected to equalize the valuations, but In practice, that board never reduces the county return, since It assumes that no assess or will over-value property. The chang es by the state board are all the other way. Thus In dealing with Multnomah county, the board raised the total as. sesBment of that rich county from $03,. 834,476 to $81,692,2121 This astounding in crease of over $17,000,000 was made be causa Portland property was assessed at far below Its actual value. In the matter of mortgages wherein the face value was apparent, and admitted of no mlBtake.the Portland assessor coolly returned the amount as $8,728,820, but the state board felt bound to increase that sum to $17,456,640, which Is exactly double the original valuation. In this county the mortgages are evidently re turned at their full value, Inasmuch as the board made no addition thereto. It was In view of such shrewd trans actions on the part of Portland, that It was recently observed that property that is taxed at $160 In Clackamas county pays only $86 In Portland, "The children of darkness are wiser than the children of light." Portland believes In "leveling up.". Her people undervalue their property and take tlielr chances before the state board. When that body hns raised the so culled valuation, the tax payers submit complacently, knowing that It la still tinder the actual amount. The changes mnde by the legislature In the fiscal system, render It neces iry to make a new departure In assessing the property of this county, Full information should be ob tained by the nsssor as to the boats adopted In all other coun ties, so that Clatsop may not be over burdened by unfair taxation. The Spanish Infanta Eulalle express es herself delighted with republican America, but that doesn't mean that she proposes to lend her Influence to the movement to make Spain a repub lic When the state banks get to Issuing currency, If they ever do, and one of them falls, its currency will become worthless. should all the national For the Next Thirty Days, To meet imperative demands, I will offer at such low prices on install ments, with easy payments, that banka in the' country close their doors the currency Issued b;' them would be etlllaa gpood as gold. Quite a difference. The merchantlle party that has gone to San Francisco from Albany and other Valley towns to cultivate trade by way of Yaqulna, means business, The movement should warn Portland that she Is likely to lose much trade If she persists In her selfish policy. Kansas City firemen are to go to London to show the English how American flre-laddies do their work, They will carry an entire outfit, in eluding engine, water tower, and trained horses. At the present time real estate in As toria can be bought at exceedingly low figures, and parties with money to in vest can find golden opportunities that may never again present themselves, It must be said to the credit of Gov ernor Pennoyer that he did not sign the Portland bill which excludes new comers from civic office. It became a law without his signature. The mugwumps get nwked to dinner by Mr. Cleveland, but they are not getting much else from him. We can Join our democratic friends In lndors Ing this policy. Notwithstanding the nearness of summer, members of the "hungry and hot democratic brigade are In danger of remaining hungry and becoming cold. . . FUNERALS. E. W.

RUSSELL SAGE. Attemnt at Suicide. It Might Havt Been Pmtnttd. From the Boston Post. Whilo the walks in the Fublio Garden were crowded yesterday afternoon about 4.30 o'clock, people near the entrance gates at the corner of Beacon and Charles streets were horrified to see a man suddenly plunge a knife repeatedly into bis throat and fall to tho ground. While waiting lor a conveyance an officer questioned the would-be suicide, who was about 50 venrs of nee. as to Lis name, address. and reason for wishing to end bis life, but the man steadfastly refused to give any infor mation regarding himself. He was taken to the Massachusetts General Hospital and surgical, attendance given him. Although weak lrom loss or blood it is probable ho will recover. About 9 o'clock last night a hospital attendant cot a little information from him. He said his name was Samuel D , and that he came some weeks ago from New Brunswick. The last few days his head has felt queer, and lie has been wan der ing about the city, not knowing which way to turn. What impelled him to commit his rash act lie was unable to say. The above is the familiar but terrible slory of the results of mental derangement caused by overstrain of the nervous system. People who have dmmess, headache or back ache, or who are troubled with melancholy or despondent feelings, are already well on tho road which lends to insanity and suicide.
