Several Bidders. Were on

- .ta Property Activity
and Bustle at Blodgett
Willamette Grange -
The sale of property for delin
quent taxes occurred at the csnrt
house Thursday forenoon.- Several
bidders were on hand and the coun
ty was epared the n? csssity of buy
iag all the property. On sccount of
the smallnfss of the delinquent list,
but a short time was required in
bringing proceedings to a close.
Contrary to the usual custom in
auch sales! it wa3 not the highest
bidder, but the one that bid the
lowest rate of interest that the prop
erty was knocked down to. -In
each instance the purchaser bid the
amount of the taxes, and accom
panied the - bid- with' the interest
rate he would demand in cage the
owner chose to redeem the proper
ty. As a result of the bidding in
thia particular, some of the proper
ty 'went with no "interest John
Smith having purchased a pitcs en
that basis. Aside from this bid,
the interest rates ran from , six to
lo per cent. All that the county
bid in is at lo per cent., so that lo
jer cent, interest will be required
in case owners elect to redeem such
property as it bid in. Ten per cent,
is the 'highest rate allowed under
the law, by the new .arrangement.
The sale was phenomenal in one
particular, in that it is the smallest
list ever sold in any county in the
state at a delinquent sale. It is al
so the first sale of the sort in the
iate this year. . .

New York, Dec. 9. New York

ed during the past 24 hours the
coldest weather for many" years. In
this city it was the coldest Decem
ber in 26 years,; the thermometer
registering, as it did in that year, 8
above zero. The severity of the
cold was intensified by " the fact
that the people were : not prepared
for it, the cold wave havirig de
scended upon the country sudden

too, the scarcity " of coal - caused
much suffering among the poorer
classes V Every effort is being put
forth .to alleviate the suffering, chai -jtable
organizations : have taken
steps to supply the poor, and the
board of Aldermen; haying devoted
$100,000 to help along, the good

and New England. , At Albany the
mercury fell to 10 below zero,, and
in some near-by districts it went
down to 20. The river is frozen ov
