Lydla E, Plnkham herself did not
live to nco tho great success of this
work. Sho passed to hor reward years
ago, but not till she had provided
means for continuing her work as
effectively as she could hare dono it

During her long and eventful expe

tc-day these records, together with
hundreds of thousands mado alnoe, aro

With Lydla E. Plnkham worked her
daughter 'In-law, tho present Mrs.

To her bauds naturally fell tho

nothing In tho work shows when tho

TAXATION
Grange Bills to be Initiated for
Partial Reform
State Press Association Stands for Pub
licity of Tax Rolls Plutocrats Op
pose all Initiative Measures
All true friends of Indirect taxation
are urged to pull off their coats and
put 'in oae solid week for the bills to
be initiated for establishing indirect
taxation and wipe out tho present high
state tax levlw that are the greatest
obstacle 'to the development of the
state
Qrango Support tho Principle
Tho State Orange endorsed the prin
ciple of Indirect taxation nnd is cir
culating petitions for tke Initiative
of two bills along the same lines as
tho bill called by the Statesman a pop
ullstla measure. Tho grange bills do
not go so far as tho farmers' and ship
pers' bills, bat do attempt to tar groM
earnings of certain corporations and
th tank line earn, the refrigerator
ears and the Pullman ears. The grange
bills should be supported by everyone
who stand's far the principle of Indi
rect taxation, and this great reform
will h-avo to be won Inch by inch. If
both the grange bills and the farmers'
congress blUs are Initiated they will
almost wipe out the direct state tax
If enacted and all ottineas who favor
taxatien: reform should strike tlo
blows In the direction and net find
fault with technical defects or diffor
eneea. Tho Journal urges all to sign
tho grange petitions and to vote for
the bills It Initiated. .
Publish tho Tax Holla.
Tho bill Initiated at Woodburn
ahouhi bo supported for containing tho
great principle of publicity in taxa
tion refornr. IMght In this connection
we wish to say that. school land frauds
are not the only retten things In Ora
iron. The whole assessment system as
now conducted by county nMeeeors is
unjust. Personal pro-terty nearly all
eneapea the tax aolleeter. Land ia as
seaftfld at many values. One man has
twenty acres near Salem that is as
aeased at twice what M0 aares are aa
swed that Ha alengaide ef him. Ttlch
men have been dodging taxes all their
Uvea and tbe evade the inheritance
tax law aa new drawn before thay die,
Thoy naturally fight the farmers' and
shippers' congress hill. Hut publicity
will seme day be shad en the present
retten r vs-tew that reba the small Vrej
arty owi'er to protect the mttllenaire
ami tbe corporations that are shielded
here and hereaftc.
C'itiseas, pay no attention te the crit
ics. We have one week t Initiate the
indirect taxation btlls. Sign tbe peti
tloas and let- a mere just system be es
tablished. Let all true Americana help
strike down the privileges (bat make

Against AU Initiative.
(Salem Statesman editorial.)
There is a growing "ne" sentiment
In this state and vtry likely it will
make itself manifest BY THE DE
FEAT OF ABOUT ALL Tim "INT.
TIATTVE" LEGISLATION AT THE
POLLS NEXT JUNE. That some good
measure are apt to be initiated amy
be true, but there ia too much ef the
"ono man initiative" ia evidence on
every thing eo far suggested la tbe Use
of general legislation.
What with Clackamas county's
Ultan, initiating a lot of ameodaveats
to tbe constitution along these lines
whioh have already "balled up" our
statutes, and Marion county's "great
initiator" INITIATINO A OENEEAL
FOPULISTIO TAX LAW, and Yam
hill -county initiating tbe refereadum
ea tbo general appropriation bill, and
Linn county initiating a "bunco" pur
chase of the "Willamette valley wagea
road gold brick, it begins to appear
to tbe people in general that "no
is going to be a popular and "aceea
eary" word ia the June election.
Comment on the Above.
In reply to tbo Statesman's refer
ence to A aENEEAL POPULISTIO
TAX LAW" wo will say that there i
not a new feature ef the proposed tax
bill that has sat bees before Bepubli
can legislatures one or mere times and
nearly amy feature passed the lower
bouse one or more times. Tbe Davey
bill to tax gross earnings was defeat
ed, Tbe Harris bill to tax .franchisee
was defeated, Tbe Sonneman IU1 waai
defeated. The, Griffin bill to tax Pull
man palaee ear companies was defeat
ed. The WU to require publicity of as
aeesments before equalisation waa do
f i ted in the last house. Why should
net the people have a ohaneo to vole
on these Itopubllcan moaruros without
having It thrown at thorn that thoy
are PopulisMc moasurosf Furthermore
the bill has the specific endorsement
aa to that feature of tho manngor of
the Statesman, who now attacks it, as
follow).
