THE COUNTY CASE
ALL PRUNES SOLD
The Oregon Pacific Colonization
Co a corporation vs M P Burnett
and Benton county, Oregon, suit
injunction- Demurrer overruled.
Defendant given 30 days to answer
and plaintm 30 aava m y.., .
About Five CarloadSin the Vicinity
There has been activity among
prune growers in the vicinity of
Corvallis for a week past. Several
buyers have been on the scene, and
the result of the negotiations is that
nearly all of the crop of the neigh
borhood has passed out of the hands
of the growers. The sale compri
ses about five carloads, which on
account of the very light crop is
practically the total output in the
immediate vicinity for the season.
All the sales are not to the same
buyer. Nearly all the prunes in
the vicinity of Philomath .and . the
Blakeslee holdings in , Corvallis,
together with a few other small
lots were purchased the latter part
of the week by the Willamette Var
ley Prune Association of 7 Salem.
The latter company is the same
that bought a considerable quantity
of prunes in this vicinity last year.
Ithas a process works at Salem,
and the prunes bought here are to
be shipped there for -treatment,
after which the Association boxes
and places them on the market.
Another sale of nearly three car
loads was consummated Monday. It
comprises the two carloads held by
the big Prune Company, the crop
of D C Rose and a few other lots in
and about Corvallis. The sale is
for the New York market, and
shipment is to be made at once. At
the big prune companys plant, the
grading and sacking is to begin at
once. In the latter sale the figures
have not been made public, but
they are understood to be somewhat
in advance of the sale of the Salem

.' . merits.
mere was a nearjag in tne cir
cuit court Monday afternoon of the
case in which the Oregon-Pacific
Colonization Company seeks to
evade payment of taxes on its lands
in Benton County. The lands are
known as the Coe lands, and the
amount of taxes delinquent on them
is for five or six years and aggre
gate above $3,000. Benton
County advertised the lands for
sale for taxes and the corporation
restrained tire sale by injunction in
Monday the case was called, and
the attorneys for the county filed a
demurrer to the corporation s com
plaint. In the argument on the de
murrer, counsellor the corporation
urged that the entire assessment
of the lands was at fault,' because
the lands were assessed in a lump
and not seperated into parcels. Con-
sel claimed that the failure to segre
gate was equivalent to making as
sessment at all, and many decisions
in support of the view were cited.
Judge Hamilton overruled the
demurre, and the county was given
thirty days in which to make an
swer to the corporations complaint,
after which Jthe latter has a similar
period in which to file a reply with
the court. It is probable that three
months or more will elapse before
the case will reach a solution.

MUST HAVE PRODUCTS
Thousands at Chicago Want to
v Something That Benton Has
Wallis Nash .has written another
letter to a Corvallis- man asking
for something in the way of an ex
hibit for Benton county to be plac
ed in the Immigration oflice of
the Harriman lines at Chicago.
He says that Eenton suffers for
lack of some product to stand as a
representative of what the county
is capable of, and urges that some-
f thing, even if it only be a box of
apples be forwarded. Fruits,
either fresh or in jars-can be used
in the Immigration office with tel
ling effect. . '
The inquiries about Oregon, Mr
Nash continues,- are simply un
limited in number. The reputa
tion ofthe state seems suddenly to
have leaped into favor in the pub
lic eye, and thousands are seeking
information about its climate, char
acter and resources, with a view fcf
leaving for the Webfoot state . in
the spring. The rush then . Mr
Nash says, will be far greater than
the most enthusiastic Oregoniao
can possibly anticipate. The letter
concludes with the suggestion that
any products, properly packed for
shipment, may be left at the South?
ern Pacific station in Corvallis,'
and the railroad company will take
it through to its destination with
