accordingly did not entitle the hold

AFTER WATER RIGHTS.
Appropriates Large Portion of . Mary's
River for Power farposes. A
J. H Wilson has filed with the
county recorder a legal: document
that purfiorts ta secure water rights
in Mary's rivet for the purpose of
maintaining electrical .power
or other plants, wherever such
light or power is required. No
place is . designated where such
plants are to be located, ? but it is
supposed Corvallis is the market
sought. .';.'V ': ' '"'' : ' " '.
The document was filed April 7,
and has been placed on record. It
gives notice of the appropriation 6f
water from Mary's river to the full
extent of the capacity thereof from
May to November; and to that
quantity during the rest of the year
said water to be conveyed by ditch,
canal, flume or pipe line, to be
known as the Benton Power Com
pany's flume: said water to be own
ed by J. H. Wilson, his heirs Or
assigns: the ; head gate to be con
structed at a point indicated- by a
rock on Mary's river above bridge
number 98 on the Corvallis & East
ern railroad, situated 100 yards
from said bridge and on the lands
of P. H Springer; said flume -or
canal or ditch to be six feet deep
and six feet wide, or if circular
form to have a capacity , capable
of carrying 8,000 miner's, cubic in
ches under six inch pressure.
Heirs Must Pay the tax State Treas
urer Collects lit. 1
The hew law, taxing inheritan
ces, goes into effect about the 20th
received a copy of the new session
laws, from which" it " appears that
the inheritance, act should collect
a large revenue for the state. The
tax is levied against the sum , that
heirs receive, but does . not affect
estates whose total value is under !
$10,000. In case there is reasonSto
believe that the administrator's
appraisement is low,' provision , is
made for an independent appraise
ment, and for i ; taking testimony
relative to' the value of the property
in the estate. When. the estate
goes to heirs of the ' first degree,
that is a wife, husband, daughter,
son, and the like, the levy is one per
centum against the portion of each
heir. It is collected by the state
treasurer, and placed in the general
fund. In the case of uncles, aunts,
and other .relatives of other heirs of
the second degree, the rate of tax
ation is two per cent of all above
$2,000. In' relationship further
removed. or in the case of bequests
to corporate bodies, the Tate
three per cent from $500 to $5,600;
lour per cent 'trom S5, 000 to S20.-
000, five per cent to $.so.dooand
six per cent on bequests above the
latter figure. ' - ,: -;
The law provides that the coun
ty clerk shall provide ; the state
treasurer, with copies 01 appraise
ment and many other papers hied
by the administrator in estates sub
ject to the tax, and 'establishes
complete system that seems to make
it impossible for "' the payment of
the tax to be avoided. A ' similar
law is in successful - operation in
nearly all other states. ; ; ' ' u ; J '
