So far, and Saturday is the last day of» the session, there have been no laws lopping state costs, nor of other general taxation, and there 15 no recourse but to spread the sales tax thinner as the federal income tax is, and bring more peo- ple into the class of the tax-conscious. l l ANOTHER WEEK OF GOOD WEATHER Puget Sound is enjoying another week of geod weather, now at the middle of March, or about six weeks of sunshine spattered with some rains but no storms or cold Weather worth men-‘ tion; all in contrast to the touted sunny climes. of 5{California and Florida, and if it could be relied ,lupon turning winter tourists this way. i ; With the thermometer getting up around 7C isome afternoons, and the ferns and woods dry- iing out fires are being reported in some places ,even in Mason County and the warning of thls gdanger goes out; but at this early season there ’is little danger to timber or other property. , Now, come to think of it, we may be sorry ithat the rains have passed us by so far this win- iter season, and also the snow and cold, because} the signs already point to a shortage of water in, ,the reservoirs and of snow in the mountains} Iwhich keep the turbines running in summer;l ,Tacoma and Seattle and private power are al- éready getting their auxiliary steam plants in l I l l l l I l l order to meet their demands for the summer _' ahead. I It is well to remind all taxpayers that Satur- day, March 15th, is the last day for filing income tax reports and payments, and also for payment of county realty taxes to earn a three per cent re- bate. E BREATH OF ECONOMY ? 0N v i . ; So far there has been only one breath of! economy coming out of this legislative session,l as against dozens of schemes which spell more» taxes and demands from the consumers; that is a committee report which indicates that at least i 1 two of the elective offices are asking about twice 'ithe amount of money they should spend in their functions, and that a slashing of all such budgets could save the taxpayers a million or so. , The report points out that the cost of state Egovernment has almost doubled in five years, as mew bureaus, inspections and duplicated checking ihas grown up in the several departments, with {each using cars, gas and expense accounts in go- ,ing over the state and doing what an ordinary gB-cent stamp could generally accomplish. Gover- ‘nor Langlie could no doubt save the million, if ipermitted, which would help toward the twenty ;or more million needed for new demands. i l l l i With the passage of the so-called lend-lease ,bill by Congress the United States has taken the ilast step of formal entrance in» the world war, and lthe way is clear for some real spending without l i i l l l l Mrs' Fred Compton and family Reimer, Viola Anderson’s brother,l spent Sunday in Seabeck “Siting”las Mr. Compton's parents.
