BAKER (ITY LEVIES A
SPEClAt SIXTEEN MILL TAX
Total "tax le vy of 16 mlleV Was voted
by the city council last night at. its regular
meeting t which all -iiiAincilmen were
present The regular levy being ten mill
which cannot be exceeded, a special levy
of six mills was also ordered. fj , ,"
- Upon the report of the finance commit
tee showing that the sum of $13,515.60
is required as a result of the general levy
and the amount of taxable property is
$1,331,165 the 10 mill tax was ordered.

public library, the additional levy was
imposed, making the total for that ordi

Some discussion arose in connection
with the tax levy. Jt being the opinion of
Councilman Boweji that the street com
mittee should have been consulted as to
their needs before the finance committee
made its report and that a levy of 17
mills should have been made. ' Council

' AN AMUSina ARTICLE
i Some weeks ago the Portland Journal
obtained a picture of one of the 194 class
of locomotives running out of La Grande
and published an article that four of
these locomotives would soon be placed
on the run on the mountain division. This
article was published by the lesser papers
of the Inland Empire with but one or two
exceptions. A careful investigation proves
that these famous engines have been on
the run for the pas. six or seven months
and are not new to the citizens of La
Grande. To make it more interesting a
Pendleton dispatch to the Journal tells the
same old story over about these engines.
Following is the last article., .
"Pendletpn, Or Deo. 20-Four balanc
ed compound locomotives which were or
dered by the Harrimajo -system some time
agonave been assigned to the mountain
division of the O. R. A N. at Meacham
"The locomotives represent the highest
achievements in modern mechanics tor
power and speed. On a level grade they
attain a speed of 85 miles an hour, and it
is stated that they will decrease the time
that has formerly been consumed on the
steep grades of this division.
The mair. specification of the new me
chanical monsters follows: Weight on
drivers, 138,000 pounds; weight of en
gine, 226.000 pounds; , total weight of
engine and loaded tender, 396 000
pounds: capacity of tender, 12 tons coal
and 9,000 gallons of water."
ATTEND TMC FRUIT GROWERS MEtTlMO
At La Grande January 3 to 5 inclus ive
I cannot impress upon the minds of the
Fruitgrowers too deeply the importance
of attending every session of Northwest
Fruitgrowers Association. As ' every
phase of the Fruitgrowers will be pre
sented and discussed from both practical
and scientific stand points from the plant
ing of the seed to the development of the
bearing tree ctring for and marketing
We are greatly in need of organization
and until effort in preparing and market
ing our products. These meetings are
designed for this especial purpose, sotake
off three days, and attend these meetings
and learn - how others .have done
then go ar.d do likewise. '
I feel if we can only accomplish this
one thing our meeting will have been
grand success. Come to- the meeting.
