Twenty Thousand is the Figure The
new Proprietor is St. Helens man.
A news item in Wednesday's
Times announced , the transfer of
the Hotel Corvallis property "to a
new owner. Samuel Swanson. .who
purchased the -incompleted build
ing and a series of delays brought
it to a state of completion and oc
cupancy has severed his connection
with its ownership. The new own
er is Samel Mjles of St. Helens.
He is sole proprietor, and is in pos
session, the deeds having passed
the first of the week. i-. : ,
The consideration in the convey
ance is $20,000. Of the amount,
$8, 000 is cash, represented by a
mortgage that the purchaser sheld
on the property for money advanc
ed Swanson. The balance of $12,
000 is Portland property.. ,: which
Miles conveys to Swanson, the above
figure 01 $12,000 being the consid
eration in the Portland deed.
The sale of the hotel in no way
interferes with . existing, arrange-,
ments. Landlord Hammell has a
lease on the, property for seven
years, and no transfer can make
any difference in his arrangements.
' The purchaser is an old time . re
sident of St Helens, Oregon, where
he is an extensive property owner.
He has resided or many years in
the vicinity, and . his purchase of
the Corvallis property is merely . a
side investment.
It Was a Barn, and Its Contents Went
Up ia Smoke.
The birn and contents on the lot
af Jopeph FienU-io at the corner
of Fifth and Washington, . were
burned to the ground in the' early
boors of Friday morning. The a-
larm was turned in shortly after
one o'clock, and there was a prompt
response by tbe department. The
flames, however, bad gained great
headway, and the firemen found it
impossible to save the Ftrncture
Theie efforts were directed to tbe
saving of an adjoining barn in
which the horses and otber belong
ings of the beelay i ruck Co. are
kept. A stream from the hydrant
at Dr. Cathej'a was sufficient for
the purpose.
In the Fierstein barn a quanti
ty of wood, cotatoes, tools, and oth
er things of value and use were?
stored. Nearly all of, the content-"
were totally destroyed. Udoq tbe
building destroyed ihere was insur
ance to tbe amount of $100 in the
McMionville Company. Tbe ori
gin of the fire is uncertain. A
smokehouse ajjoioed the barn, but
there had been no fire in it for some

County School Sup't
For Assessing Bank Deposits Bat Leg
- islatnre Could Make Valid oae.
Last spring, the question ' of as-J
sessmgbank deposits was a live
one in Benton. Acting under , in
structions from the county court.
Assessor uusn maae a demand on
the two local banks for lists of their
depositors, and the amounts depos
ited, r lhe information was- wanted
for the purpose of bringing the cash
of the county into payment of a
share of taxation. . The course was
authorized by a statute which pur-
puncu 10 require Dane -officers ; to
supply such lists to assessors, and
which provided a fine and impris
onment for refusal. The statute
had been a lawjfor years, but there
had been no attempt to enforce it
Some held that it was not a valid
law, and could not be made effect
ive. The Benton county court took
the view that an application of- the
law would speedily determine
whether or not the statute was ef
fective, and that if not effective it
should be repealed so as to give
ciear way lor legislation on the
subject that would be operative In
the matter, the Benton jpourt was
in co-operation with numerous oth
er county courts of the state, the
action in Benton being for test pur
poses. The courtpursued the mat
ter to the extent of going to the
grand jury with a complaint on the
refusal of local banks to furnish
the lists of ' depositors demanded.
The attorney general ha tend
ered an opinion to., the effect that
the statute in question is not valid.
A decision by the federal courts is
quoted, in which it is held that the
state has authority to make laws lo
compel bank officers to supply lists
of depositors for purposes of as
sessment. The statute on which
the federal decision was rendered
authorized the assessor "to issue
compulsory process to require the
attendance of witnesses and to ex
amine them on oath, and providing
for punishment as for contempt in
'case of refusal to obey a subpoena
to testify." The attorney general
adds, '"Our statutes confer no au
thority on assessors to issue com
pulsory process to compel witnesses
to attend, but in the light of the
foregoing decision the legislative
assembly could so provide, and I
have been unable to find that said
decision has ever been disapDrov-
,i The grounds upon which the
Oregon statute is held invalid, is
that the title of the act does .not
conform to the subject matter in the
law. The title of the act is, "An
act to empower assessors to assess
bank deposits," while the body of
the law is a command to bank offi
cers to supply lists of depositors,
and provides a fine for refusal so
to do, neither of which is mention
ed in the title, in which respect the
law does not conform to the re
quirements of the state constitution.
