Here after the county court, has junt finished making the record low levy of 11 mills, comes the Joseph Herald kicking because it was not 7 oi 8 mills, and pres enting under the head ''What Will They Do With It?" a juggling of figure that would do credit to a Wall Street frenzied financier. Of the total levy four and six-tentln mil Id are required for state and school purposes, in the levying of which tha co inty court had no .1 : . : i. . x. i . - . i m. t . ct 1 1 . i . i . . N uifi iciioii wuaiever. iow nuotraei mai irom o mill;", me nignesi raie the Herald named as necessary, ard you have three and four-tenths mill, r on thin year's assessment a sum of $21,'!23. Last year it cost $23,500 for general county expenses, salaries, supplies, etc. In addition $14,814 50 were expended on roads, not counting $2000 yet to be .paid for the hrid'je across Little Salmon. There's $38,314 to be paid out of Mr. Herald'e $21,223, counting those expenses the ame as last year. But there is also a necessary $G210 for maintenance of the high school; there is $4800, expense for three elections April, June and November; there is the percentage of taxes never collected (Amounts to $2(5,8 18.'03 since 1884); making a known necessary total of $i'.).354 to be paid out of the Herald's $21,223. Uut then there will he a balance of $5000 in the treasury says the Herald, which would give a total of $2(5,223 to pay $49,354. - There's a deficit of $23,131, which is certainly large enough to delight the heart .f anyone who wants to keep the county in debt sc that the building of a court house. would be prohibited by state law. The 3J mill difference between what the court levied and what, the Herald says would have been enough, amounts to $21,848, or $1283 ess than enough to pay running expenses based on 1907. In other words the court ha9 saved that sum in 1903 over 1907. How it the name of common sense a paper has the nerve to kick after the low levy made by the court, passeth ordinary understanding. This, too, in the face of $1000 inrreasfl demanded by the state, $2700 increase required by Ihw for ti e common schools, and $4800 extra expense foi elections. For our part, instead of having the amount set apart for roads pared down we would have preferred to, pay an extra mill for road purposes provided it was expended as well, sav, as the $1000 on the Trov hill. The school appropriation is increasing yearly. Last year it was $6 per capita of school population; this year it is $7. Prior to 1907 it never was above $4. And.we are glad it is increasing. And we want to fee the amount spent on roads increase. The News Record stands squarely for the best roads and tl e beBt schools the county can possibly afford.

Winning the debate fairly and squarely from one of the largest and best high schools in Oregon, the new Wallowa County high school has just cause for elation. It is a victory of which to be proud, and surely there is not a citizen anywhere in this big county but who is proud of his school. When such a notable achievement can be accomplished in a few months, the prediction of Supt. J. S. Landers of Pendleton, that the school will become so popular within a few years that an addition to the new building will bo necessary, does not seem far-fetched at all. When the people of Wallowa county are convinced a thing is right they give it whole-hearted support. Th Bplendid work of the debating team, the success of the event in every way, literary, artistic and social, but especially the esprit de corps shown by the students of an institution only three months old, reflect great credit upon Principal W. E. Mooro and his able assistant, Miss DuFur. Hurrah for Wallowa County High! . - - 1 , i, ' 1 X 1 V ! i ; v 1 J 1 ft ,y Miss Llda Flowers, Who Though Handicapped by Illness, Received a Splendid Vote. It An effort will be mado to initiate a bill at the June election to mulct candidates for office for the benefit of the job' printers of Salem, or in other words to centralize all the campaign printing and adver tising at Sulem at outrageous prices. The bill masquerades under the title "To prevent corrupt practices and limit campaign expenses to to candidates in election," and was fathored in the last legislature by Huntley of Clackamas, but the real author of its being is said to be W. S. U'Ren, the only simon-pure, name-blown-in-the-bottle "father" of Oregon legislation. Notice to Democrats.

Miss Corkius is a bright, hand some girl aud not a hit afraid of work a combination that insu: es her being a grand prize w inner all alcng through life. Miss Corkins in telling of her work in securing subscribers for the News Uecord said : "I would not have re gretted the experience even if I had not won the prize, for the work was a pleas ure and the experience gained of value; besides the commissions and special prizes paid no well for the work and I consider the lot as pure gain. Every body treated mo nicely when I was soliciting, and I want to say the majority subscribed because they said it was a good paper, the best in the county, and not just to help me.
