THE OFFICtAl. PAPER OF GILLIAM COUNTY, OREGON. WAR REVENUE. Secretary Gage is reputed to bo Lard prerMt-d U devise ways and" titeune u raise eutiicient revenue with which w meet ihe largely in vroused expenses of the present war. The government baa been con fronted with a big deficit every month since the beginning of hos tilities and now that the army is to bo increased 30,000 men, the prob lem of gathering together the tnnews of war, is indeed a serious one. The treasury department offi cials see no other way to increase the revenue but by increasing the present stamp tax and by adding many new articles to the already large list of revenue producers. Many persons have hoped to see the nest congress make some sweeping reductions in the stamp tax, but it will be readily seen that this is not now to be expected, but on the contrary the people are to be called upon to bear additional burdens along that line. It is to be regretted that the course adopted by the government to raise revenue during the rebel lion, namely, the imposition of a graduated income tax, is not avail able in the present emergency, for if it were it would be a welcome relief to the men whose duty it is to keep the coffers filled in time of - war, but since the decision of the supreme" court in 1893, declaring such a tax unconstitutional, it is not to be thought of. Another bond issue could be made, but it is stated that the ad ministration is averse to more bonds, perhaps because of the scathing criticisns which used to be made against Cleveland's adminis tration on that score, and the only course left open is the direct tax on the toiler through the medium of the familiar "revenue stamp. But, perhaps this is the most satis factory method after all for it places the burdens of the war where they properly belong, on the shoulders of the "dear people," who are expected, and required, to "pay the freight" on all occasions. The "people" are equal to it. They are "strong in the back and weak in the head" and have nothing else to do but hustle for a living and pay taxes, while the poor over worked trust magnates and other millionaires, who manage to escape most all kinds of taxation, through the connivance of the legislative, executive and judiciary depart ments of the government, are kept busy seeing that ''trade follows the Hag," and, incidentally, that they get their share of it. Boss Quay's man Friday, Parti Ban Penrose, of Pennsylvania, made a characteristic speech at the state convention the other day in which he distinguished himself in his usu al fool fashion. Among a lot of other rubbish, he told the members of the convention that "daring the recent period of republican supre macy the great agricultural classes have baen blessed with abundant crops," and the wise and sagacious Pennsylvania politicians applaud ed and cheered until they had frogs in their throats and callouses on their hands. Such blatherskites as Penrose are to be found in all po litical parties and, sad to say, thousands of brainless idiots are al so to be found who will sit and swallow such silly elush and be lievo it wisdom. Any man who will assume to state that any sort of political aggregation, in or out of office, can influence growing crops, the seasons or the sunshine, is a charlatan and a chump, and any audience that will listen to him and fail to throw him out of the hall, proves that it is built just right to dance to the music of Quay's quirt and that they deserve no decenter leader than Quay himself. What the country needs most is a few million voters possessing sufficient brains and backbone to" do a little inde pendent thinking on things per taining to politics and then chase all such charlatans out of the country, and not a voter will have to leave his own political camp to indulge in the sport either, for all the political parties, republican democratic, populist and prohibi tion, are cursed with a full quota of such cattle. A SAMPLE CASE. The Diamond Match Company is a giod illustration of the nature of principal one being owned by Ed win Gould, paying hint a million dollars for a concern worth only half that sunk This and others it closed vrp throwing many hundreds of people, mostly women, out of employment. Then the 6upply was decreased until it could raise the price of matches, which has been done, the latest increase being about 25 per cent 1 Net results of the operation of the trust: A largely increased and an abnormal and an unconsciona ble price for an article used by all the people; the support of hundreds of people taken away; a million or several millions of money transfer red from the pockets of the people to those of a few rich individuals. Yet it is said that a great, almost omnipotent, government like ours can do nothing to interfere in any way with this operation being re peated a thousand times, and, in many instances, on a much larger scale. Telegram. "The Oregon Press Association is holding its annual meeting at Asto ria this week," says " the East Oregonian. "It is stated that a res olution is to be presented asking for the appointment of a committee to draft a bill, to be introduced in the next legislature, requiring a man to pass an examination before being permitted to engage in the publica tion of a newspaper in Oregon. Of course, if the measure becomes a law it is not to affect those already engaged in the newspaper business in the state. This effort is on a level with the legislation that has been secured in the interests of the other "professions," the law, medi cine, barbering and blacksmithing. It is special legislation in its worst form and unworthy the support of intelligent and self-supporting men L.

WW allowing this to be determined by the character of his work, nor byj the intelligence of those who are in , the habit of supporting newspapers. It interferes with personal rights. TTio8e who advocate it are on a par with the boy artist who, after drawing something that looked like a horse, wrote under the sketch, so no mistake could be made, "This is a Horse." And so there are news paper men in Oregon who wowld have the law declare, "This is a newspaper man. w nen news paper men are deficient in ability nothing the law can do can "save" them, wbile those who are efficient are not in need of any protection such a measure can give them. Why not have a law passed declar ing that all newspaper men should take a bath and change their clothes at least once a week? Doubtless such a law would do more good for the "profession" than the one proposed. At least it would be more sensible." Oregon has now produced a man who threatens to rivet the atten tion of the universe. Hia name is Eugene Leoper, and he works at odd jobs for 20 cents an hour. All sorts of stories are finding their way into the papers about him. His particular merits are strength, endurance, patience, industry and modesty. He can do more work at 20 cents an hour than any ten men in the state, and he doesn't kick onlywhen there isn't work enough. He has been known to refuse an extra 20 cents when he was an hour short. When this was first reported in the east, the freak hunt ers looked incredulous and called it a wild and woolly fake. But the evidence is accumulating that it is true. At the last accounts Hamlin Garland was fitting out an exploring expedition to capture him. Eastern Paper. ADMINISTRATOR'S NOTICE.
