CMigrr?hUian Moody, wJnw term foftictt s ; i rel yefU-r-Ur, is on v-rv frinUv terms with President H-wfwvrU, a is viti,esed hy lUe rv Hn;iMtiiv; for the I.id O lloeftt Tlx LVdles whioh were an n ntieed Friday. Mr. MukkIv, on th vof hi" retirement from the House of Repretuintatiwa secured the appointment of Mr. M.T No'nn as register and Miss Annie Lang a receiver of the Land (Mice in his home town and the hopes of Messrs Lucas and Patterson for reappoint ment to the comfortable position? are gone glimmering. The appoint ments came as a surprise to many m it wa supposed that Mr. Moody was '"downed" by his defeat in the c ingressional convention last gyring but this seems to be a mis take! Mr. Nolan w a well known ritizen of The Dalles and Miss Lang lias for several years been a clerk in the Land OSce and the ability and fitness of both for these im portant positions is unquestioned. It is reported from Washington ihat President Roosevelt offered Mr. Moody any federal appoint ment which he might select but that gentleman declined th offer preferring to return to The EUUes and engage in business. He made his wishes known in regard to the I and OSce however and it must be 8aid that his wishes were fairly entitled to the consideration, which the president gave them. March came in some what like-a Iamb Sunday but by Monday morning was acting like a very ill bred Nubian lion. If it keepa the lick up for SO days it is likely to go out like a Kansas cyclone.

Edimb (Jlobij: In the isroie of the Ar lington - Record c f Fein wiry 27 sp-p-ar a petition t'l t le County Court of Uiliiam county, O egon, praying for the postponement of the constrnction of a court house at Condon until 1905, and in support of such petition pets out what purports to Ik a statement of facts which are misleading, pernicious and false, and it occurs to the writer hereof that in fairness to the County Hoard in the mat ter some fair ami true statement of the asc should lie presented to the taxpay ers, aud that the method of apportioning slate taxes should receive first consider ation i' this :n tide.

Tie repeal of itii act was bronghi hImiiI by llie dwreput aolv practice of the ltlt:ials of vrta;n counties ( whicii disliooest practice the records ol G.liiam county seem to shiw that some officials thereof were not whol ly exempt of conceal ng the true amount tf the assess! I ile operty hy omitting the Mme from ' th assessnieut mils and reachinit it (or cjnnty taiatiou by wh.H is known as a sheriff's assessment. To relieve the counties that were hon est in their returns to the State Roar-1 and to clrcotuvent dishonest ofticials l act that in the individual would be criminal the present law was enacted. And we undertake to say that taking ail things into consideration the present law is not only not nnjust but as near equitable as any law that could be fram ed at the presenst tune under eiisting Circumstances. And, pardon us, we can but doubt the ability of thisdeztrous jaggler of facts and figurvs to convince the legislatucrof fill er 1903 or 11)07 or .1909 of the necessity of repealing or mod ifying the same or that a return to the old systeui tinder which o much dishon esty has been displayed in the past mould ba had. - The author of this pretended petition further says that the deferri ng of the construction of a court house would save in interest charges about $2,000. lie evidently assumes that the many thous ands of acres of land that are monthly being granted to settlers are not to be assessed. That the enormous increase in all laud values are not to be recognis ed. As a matter of fact the income of the comity should without an increase in the levy iu 1904 be double that of 1902. This artistic weiider of the pen furth er assumes that Gilliam couuty's addi tional taxation for state purposes would anient to $8,000. By w hat abortive pro cess does be arrive at this conclusion T Does he attempt to convey the impres sion that Gilliam is the only county in the state now incurring additional ex penditures? The truth is that almost every county in the state has greatly in creased its annual expenditures since the present apportionment made iu 1KH. On oar eastern bound ry we find Morrow county constructing a court house at an expenditure of some 30,000 whiie join us on th6 south is Wheeler county with recent construction of public bnildinga at an expenditure of $12,000 or $!3,00d and we aiso find similar conditions ex isting on our west in Sherman county and such is the condition throughout almost the entire state. Instead tf as suming that the construction of a court i house wonid result in an adJional state j tax of $8,000 had this self appointed 'watch dog of the treasury" presented the matter in a fair and impartial man ner he could have arrived at no other re- suit than that even with the $10,000' expenditure for a court house there can be no material increase in the rale of taxation of the individual taxpayer. In answer to an editorial iu the Record of the same date it might be well to add that tiie recent election failed utterly to record the sentiment of the pe pie oti the question of constructing a court house as out of 933 voles cast there were only 3-50 against the proposition so that even t:ie resiarcefjl author of the pretended petition would be unable to so juggle figures that he could show a majority of voters 9 opposed thereto. In conclusion we desire to sav that we presume the author of the pretend ed petition which by the way strangely resembles a widely circulated campaign article put out in the interest of a certain defeated candidate at the last electi on is sincere in his endorsement of the county conrt's action in ordering the construction of a court house at Condon and therefore the act of the recent leg islature in extending the lime for a re apportionment of stale taxes until the year 1910 removes his pretended objec tions as the time i" thus extended fur.th cr even than he sugge'ts, when, as he -Hv, this county's additional tax will be $1000.
