OAS NO DEBT. Her Finances in Fine Condition. How the State Eaises Her Taxes. A Very Clear Statement of Our State Finances by Treasurer iletschau. "This being the middle of the biennial term, and prior to the closing of our books for tne year, is an opportune time for furnishing the pres3 with sibsulutely correct facts and figures in relation to the financial condition of our state" remarked Hon. Phil. Meischan, the affable state treasurer, in reply to an inquiry of a Statesman reporter. "And while it is true that the department under my supervision quickly responds to the touch of a stringency in the money market, and that the year just closing is marked with the effects of 'hard times still, as a state, Oregon's financial condition will compare most favorably with that of any-state in the Union. We have no bonded Indebtedness (with the exception of e.bout 51,800 long since provided for) while our public buildings are paid for, and our various 'trust tunds are in a healthy condition. The financial depression has been made manifest in the matter of the payment of interest by those who have secured loans from the funds last referred to, and it has been the policy of t5ie board of school land commissioners having charge of the l.unds to act with prudential caution in making collections of the same, their disposition being to grant every concession in their power consistent with their duty as public officers, to the patrons of the funds, who in many cases have not been able as j et to pay their July interest. The majority of them are farmers and they have been unable to dispose of their produce at living figures, nor could they borrow the money at their local banks. In view of this state of affairs it has been deemed best to grant, in many cases, an extension of time in which to pay the interest rather than to endeavor to enforce payments and thus jeopardize the interests of the state and the patrons as well. I am pleased, however, to note a slight improvement, and the receipts of interest payments are coming in fairly well at present; with hardly jin exception the loans are deemed first--clas, and with the exercise of a little patience, and careful management, the board anticipates no depreciation in the funds. "Notwithstanding the almost unprecedented financial dprassion, the amount of interest distributed among the various counties of the state last year (1393) amounted to the snug little sum of 516S.903.00, or $6,836.50 in excess of what it was in 1S92, while the number of children of school age showed an increase of S,845 over that of the preceding year. The State university at Eugene has received from the general fund something over J24.003.00 for building purposes, while from the university tax fund it has drawn $13,500.00, and irom its interest fund $6,872.00. The State Agricultural collage at Corvallis lhas drawn from the general fund something over $30,000.00 for building purposes, and from its interest fund $7,- 635.31. The State Normal school at Monmouth has been paid $20,882.76, the School at Weston $12,000.00 and the one at Lakeview $5,000.00. It will thus be seen that Oregon has paid to her public schools and other institutions of learning during the past year $288,793.20, to which should be added the five mill tax collected by the several counties, amounting to $801,318.23, making a total of $1,090,112.43 in addition to the amount levied by the district meetings. This showing is certainly suggestive of the liberality shown our educational interests by our generous people. "The current expenses of the state government are, as is generally known, derived from a levy made annually by j xne state Doard of levy, consisting of the governor, the secretary of state and the state treasurer. The levy made by them to meet the current expires of 1893, was six and twenty-three thirty-fifths mills, constituting what is known as the general fund, together with a special tax of one-seventh of one mill for the support of the State university ' and one-fifth of one mill for the support of the Oregon National guard. The revenue derived from these various sources, if collected, would have been as follows, ths total amount of taxabl? property in 1S92 being $160,263,64G: On account of current expenses $1,066,897 99 On account of support state university 22,894 80 On account Oregon 'National guard 32,052 72 Total $1,121,845 51 "Of these several amounts, however, the following state taxes of 1892 still remain unpaid: On account current expenses. .$217,798 91 On. account support State university 13,818 85 On account support Oregon .National Guard 13,815 36 Total $245,433 12 "In addition to the amount collected on account of the general fund, as above given, up to Dec. 25, 1S93, there had been collected from other sources an amount sufficient to swell the 'general fund' to $910,890.76. This, deducting the disbursements for 1893, ($885,-, 333.31) leaves a balance in the general 2und of $25,766.89, with which, together "with collections looked for at an early date, to meet a large proportion, at least, of the current expenses for the "quarter just closing. There are, at the Tpresent time, outstanding warrants to the amount of $125,000.00 or in that OREGON neighborhood, which wHl be redeemed as soon as the amounts due the state from the several counties are paid. In addition to the unpaid ' taxes of 1892, long since due and payable, back taxes, for the years prior to 1S92, are still due, as follows: Oa account of current expenses JS5.S90 S7 On account support state university 2,580 6G On account support Oregon National Guard 3.232 19 Total $91,803 72 "Adding to the last mentioned amount the sum due the state from the delinquent taxes of 1892, makes the total amount due the state on account of state taxes from the several counties $337,236.84. You will notice that the amount of outstanding warrants is but a little more than one-third of the amount due on state taxes from delinquent counties. "In relation to the amount of the state levy for the coming year, I can only say that it will be the aim of the board to place it at the lowest possible figures consistent with the demands of our growing state and the appropriations made by the legislative assembly." THE INDIAN SCHOOL. Harrison Indian Institute at Chemawa Near Salem. Any description of the public institutions of Salem and vicinity would be incomplete unless it contained mention of the United States Indian industrial and training school, known as the Harrison institute, and situated at Chemawa, three miles north of the state fair grounds. This institution, under the care and support of the United States, is pleasantly located on a government farm of about 260 acres. Its thirty buildings, which house nearly 300 students, and thirty employes, are distributed in a ten-acre campus on the west side of the Southern Pacific railroad. A ten -acre orchard touches the campus on' the north, and on the west are fifty acres of garden. Pasturage, woodland and uncleared fields comprise the remain ing portions of the farm. Visitors are welcomed and shown through the vari ous departments that compose the in stitution. The school building, or school house proper is divided into five recitation rooms, and a chapel which will seat 400. In the literary department the course of study covers a period of nine years and includes the subjects usually found in an average system of public schools. In conformity to a general regulation of the Indian department, pupils are in their school room half a day, while for the other half day they are in industrial employments and trade-learning. Hence each teacher and industrial instructor has two sets of students, one set in the forenoon and one in the afternoon. The text-books, maps, globes and other school-room appliances, together with the manners, customs and forms, are the same as appear in any well-ordered school. In the primary grades tha number of older pupils is noticeable. In the matter of scholarship the teachers report the pupils to be, on the whole, bright, active and ready to learn, and, as a rule, they make good progress. The music teacher ably leads a number of boys and girls into the mysteries and melodies of music, both vocal and instrumental. In the industrial department there are rooms devoted to engineering, plumbing and tin work, carpentering, glazing and painting, shoemaking, tailoring, harness making, blacksmithing and wagonmaking. And then there is the farming department. A QUARTER OF A CENTURY TEST. For a quarter of a century Dr. King's New Discovery has been tested, and the millions who have received benefit from its use testify to its wonderful curative powers in all diseases of throat, lungs, and chest.

How Marion County Is Jlouuileu" and Some Historical l'oiuts of Interest. Marion county is bounded on the north by Clackamas county, on the cast bj' Wasco and Crook, on the south by Linn, and on the west by Polk and Yamhill counties. It comprises an area of 396,931 acres, and is the second county in the state in wealth and popula tion. It is only about twelve miles in width at its eastern bolder, but gradually wideus in a westerly direction till it measures thirty-six miles from north to south. It is sixty miles in length from east to west. Ihe eastern portion is wild, rugged and mountainous, abounding in forests. The western part is comparatively level and is distin guished for many varieties of soil. The Willamette river edges its entire western boundary and drains extensive grain and fruit lands. The Santiam river runs across the southern portion of tne county. The western part of the county abounds in prairies of which the "French," "Howell," the "Salem" and the "Santiam" are the most noted. The principal towns of the county are: Aumsville is located nearly in the middle of Marion county, on Mill creek. It is on the Woodburn-Springfield branch of the S. P., twelve miles southeast of Salem and four miles east of Turner, which is on the S. P. Co's main line.

Jefferson is in the extreme southern part of Marion county, on the main line of the S. P.. and nineteen miles south of Salem. The Santiam river, upon which Jefferson is situated, is spanned at this point by a $12,600 bridge, and is a fine navigable stream of water, fur nishing power for the several flour and sawmills here located. Jefferson was settled in 1853, was incorporated as a city in 1870, and now contains Evangelical, Methodist and Methodist South churches, a splendid school, weekly newspaper, two good hotels, a fence woiksw a library, lodges of various secret organizations, a large public hall, and a population of over 400.

Coal is mined about four miles to the south. Daily stage to Salem. A HOME CITY. Salem is the city of elegant homes as it is also the city of churches. It has no large number of palatial residences, but it has a host of beautiful homes, some of which are palatial, but all of which show that no small portion of Salem's popula tion live in splendor. Salem is peculiarly a "home town." That i3, it is a city where people come to live, after having done with the activities of metropolitan life, and to enjoy that ease and cemfort that their years of hard labor have so truly earned for them, for the remainder of their days. Salem, as the capitnl of the state, of course, will ever be the sccial center. In matter of population, ranking next to Portland, the metropolis in Oregon, her number of inhabitants reaches more than 13,000. The city of Salem embraces all the advantages necessary to making life pleasant and comfortable. A salubri ous climate that the world cannot beat educational facilities of a superior char acter situate in the midst of the finest agricultural territory the Urited States can boast on the bank cf one of the finest navigable rivers in '.he world on the only line of railroad connecting the Northwest with the Southwest these and many other advantages work to Salem's natural good and prosperity. The city of Salem is beautifully laid out on a slight eminence that gradually slopes back from the river, and makes good drainage easy. The streets most of which are graded and graveled, are, as a rule, one hundred feet wide, while the blocks range from 3 to 3,0 feet square. The streets are lined with beautiful shade trees, while an excellent system of sidewalks extends throughout the city. A walk about the city would prove more truly to even the most casual observer than coull any newspaper article to the most observant, that Salem is well named the "home town of the state," or as the "city of peace," as everything is indicative of peace and prosperity throughout the entire city. There are many fine residences through out the city that are quite creditable structures to the Northwest. The streets are lined with maple, elm and other or- namental shade trees, and present a beautiful appearance. Residences are surrounded with spacious lawns tastefully ornamented with trees and flowers. Pleasing styles of architecture are employed in the buildings, and whatever would add to the enjoyment of home life is observed in furnishing the surroundings of the homes of Salem families. Mansions and cottages alike bear an air of general comfort and refined taste that is quite attractive. In fact, the number of fine and handsome residences is so great that there is no use trying to mention even a small part of them. There is no denying the fact that Salem has as fine and handsome residence properties, buildings, etc., as any city of its size can show. That these gentlemen have faith in Salem's future is evidenced by their lavish expenditures of money on their home buildings and grounds, and this faith is held by all. Accompanying this article are printed a number of illustrations of some of Salem's finer residences. Of course the list is incomplete and omits some of tha very finest, but it will, nevertheless, give the one who observes from a distance an Idea of the elegance of some of the far Western homes.

Mrs. Eliza Hobson, once a resident of Marion county, died In Portland, December 14th, 1S33, at the age of 8S years. She was born in Newark, England, in 1S05. and at the age of 21 she was married to Miles Eyre, member of a famous cut- lery firm. She came to America in 1S42, and settled in St. Louis. Missouri, where ,..k .i v... , .v....-. . her husband had established himself in business. The next spring she and her husband started to Oregon with the immigration of that year.

GLIMPSE AT THE FUTURE. Judging by the past, Oregon is to assume great proportions. She possesses all advantages of transportation by sea and land; her soil has no superior on the face of the earth; commerce and manufactures, agriculture and the mechanic arts, must thrive here and make our state great, powerful end wealthy beyond the ordinary reach of human success.

While Oregon as a whole possesses qualities and atlraclions superior to any other state in many particulars, the citizen of Western Oregon can justly claim that his portion of the grand commonwealth surpasses the wile region lying east of the Cascade lange, and that the Willamette valley stands supreme as the very Eden of the whole Pacific states, without a peer in every requisite of soil, climate and productions, and with scenery of the most graphic character.
