ments to entertain the visitors hand

Monday night. Invitations will be is
sued to pioneers and a number of native
born Oregonians. The affair will be in
charge of County Recorder T. P. Ran'
dall, Henry Meldrum and J. W. Cole
which assures its success.
Now that tr.e evenings are growing
longer, an increased activiity in frater-1
nal circles is noticeable. The success of
a lodge depends on openiDg promptly
on time, and the presiding officer
should close the lodge when the busi
ness of the meeting is over, without an-
necessary dillydallying and much
epeechmaking. An extended deviation
from these rules will kill the most prom

So much interest has been displayed
regarding our giving up the telephone
exchange which we have conducted ever
since its organization here, that we feel
an explanation is due our friends. Our
large and growing businesses have come
to such a size that they requwe our un
divided attention.1 We were so cramped
for room for our large stock that we had
a 22 ft. extension added to one store,
and a, complete new basement for stor
age and manufacturing. Even with this
added room 1932 sq. ft. of flior space
we still needed the space the telephone
exchange occupied, and we felt obliged
to ask the company to take it out.
The superintendent of the telephone
company informs us that for the future
he shall take the Oregon City service
under his own charge have his own op
erators ; and having rented more com
modious quarters, will undoubtedly be
able to give the very best of servicp.
Our customers will profit by the room
and time that we gain by the change.

. As the board of equalization is soon to
convene we think it opportune to sug
gest that the rate of assessment be
lowered as has been done in other coun
ties, so that our county will not pay
more than ber share of the state tax.
Of course such action would raise the
rate of levy but we would not have to
pay the extra state tax as if the assess
ment rate was higher. Property in this
county has always been assessed higher
than in Multnomah and some other
counties and we have been compelled to
pay more state tax in proportion. Mult
nomah has this year reduced her assess
ment one third, Jackson county 25 per
cent, and so on. The only objection to
lowering the assessment is that it makes
the rate higher, although you do not
pay any more tax in the aggregate.
