II. llcy- noldH, il local attorney mid one of the prospective intended victims of the commission, has addressed an open letter lo the mayor and ckim- missioncrs, in which ho holds that Ihcy cannot legally lake the -top they prolKise. .The letter ivails. as follows: To the .Mayor nnd Commissioners of the City of Ccntiaiia: There is n contention between many citizens of (Teiitralia and the City Commissioners ns to the lawful right- of the city to level a garbage, tax or any other tftx against them! nnd to collect the same by suits of law nnd execution against their property. The city has levied such n tax nnd is now endeavoring to force col- lection against those refusing lo pay it, by suits In the superior Court ami by threats of suits oth- ers who, tho city clnlins arc in nr- renrs. .Tho city holds it is cmiww- ered to proceed it is doing, nnd that it cnn sell the property of de- linnucnts nnd collect tho tax even in the fnce of stnto Inw exemption. On the other hitnd there is ri grow- ing feeling of discontent nnd dissat- isfaction on tho snbjcct nmong most of the. people. The people since Ihc time, of the Ten Tarty in Hoston llnrbor, when they threw tho ten into the sen, be ,-canso they assumed they were op- pressed by unjust Inws, h.ivc jealous- ly guarded their rights in this mat- ter by placing In tho constitution of the United States and in each stnto stfltc constitution, the provision thnt nil tnxcs shnll just, nllke on nil, and uniform, nntl have universally decreed that tho county assessor shnll nsscss, thnt the connty commis- sioners shall mnkn tho levy nnd tho connty treasurer shnll collect the anmo. k The stole legislature, in granting County Auditor David W. Mon- fort has decided that hereafter all those who arc niiaHflod to perform marriage ceremonies Khali have an chance. Heretofore one of the deputies in the oflice was on ex- ceptionally friendly terms with tin. Methodist preacher, who lives di- rectly across .the street.

Walker Moien claims that he has votes pledged pass his bill abolishing the i1. o, county coroner and traiiFforriiii the duties of the coroner to the county attorney. Representative McArdle of Jeffer- son, introduced another bill tor re districting the state for congression- al purposes. Under his plan the city of Seattle would be the second dis- trict, Snohomish. fierce and that part of King outside of Seattle tho third district; the remaining conn- tips on the west side would make tho first district; the Columbia and Snake river counties from Cowlhz to Asotin and including Yakima the fourth district; and the other coun- ties on the east side, including Spo- kane, the fifth district. Efforts to legislate the Japanese truck gardener and the Oregon aug- ler on of state o( Washington were introduced in the senate terday. Neither the Jananese or tho Oregon invader were mentioned II the measures, hut Senator Frencl frankly admitted that his bill to 11 non-restdent fishermen year was an effort to stop the hord ot anglers who every week end i the fishing season, slip across th Columbia and tish ill Washingto 1101LER SEXATOK COTTEK PUESEXTS A .dmcd at tho japanes JAPANESE1 gardeners is by Senator Cotter an would prohibit aliens from leasin TKL'CK HAR11EXERS TO UAR or subleasing lands located oulsld BIG LOSS SUSTMIED'NO LET-OP IN REFORM AXOTH ER K KAPPORTTOXMKXT MEASURE IXTRODUCEO WITH PIERCE, SNOHOMISH A XII KIXG IX T1IIHIJ DISTRICT on this account alone. Likewise, the j deputy had his favorite justice of the peace. Now all this is and Aud- itor Monfort has prepared a list of all those enltled to tie matrimonial knot.

About 125 men will be thrown out of employment by yesterday's fire, which for several months to come, will materially cripple the resources of Winlock.
