"Events transpiring in Russia are
of immense import. They may be

TO CUT SALARIES.
At Oregon Gty Avery's Resolution
for Government Purchase.
There is rental of effort to open
the locks at Oregon City - free
traffic. Fifty cents per ton is now
charged for all the freight tnat
passes either way through the locks
It is claimed, that this fifty cents
per ton serves as a differential by
which freights on both rail and
water is kept fifty cents, per ton
higher than it would be were the
tax for passage through the locks
removed. The plan is for the fed
eral government to purchase the
locks and open the river to free
navigation. Such a course was
berlain in his message. A con
current resolution on the subject,
introduced by Senater Avery has
passed both houses by unanimous
vote, and is as follows."
Whereas, an act was passed by
the legislative assembly ' of the
state of Oregon m 1 870 appropriat
ing money to the Willamette Falls
Canal & Locks Company to aid in
the construction of a canal ' and
locks in the Willamette river, at
Oregon City, Oregon, and by the
terms of said act the . said corpora
tion was empowered to charge at
the rate of 50 cents per ton for frei
ght and 10 cents for each and every
passenger passing through said
locks; and '
Whereas, the rate thus permitted
to be charged fixes the amount
chargeable against all freight and
passengers whether carried by. riv
er or rail traveling in either direc
tion along ' the Willamette river;
Whereas, the producers and ship
pers of the state ought to have the
benefit of this tax, which if remov
ed would increase the value of com
modity now passing through . said
locks ; and . .'
wnereas. tne Willamette river
ought to be open to free navigation
and this can only be accomplished
by government ownership of the
said canal and locks at Oregon
; Now therefore, be it resolved
by the senate, the house concurring
tnat our representatives m congress
be and they-hereby are memorializ
ed to introduce in' congress, and
endeavor by all honorable means to
procure the passage of a bill pro
viding for the purchase by the gov
ernment of the said canal and locks
at Oregon City, . and if the price
thereof cannot be agreed upon be
tween the present owners thereof
and the government that an act be
passed authorizing the condemna
tion of said canal ; and ' locks, or
the construction of a canal and
locks on the opposite side of the
river from that now constructed,
and appropriating a sufficient sum
of money for that purpose.
Any and all persons knowing of
any objections to the allowance of
said claims, should file them with
the clerk on or before the 1st day
of Feb, I904. V
By order of county court.

Of Benton Officials Bill Introduced at
Salem Affects all of Them. '"
A bill -to reduce the salaries of all
the officers of Benton county has
beerf introduced in . the house at
Sale. The proposition is to cut
twenty per cent off the present sal
ary of each official, the law. to tak,e
effect at the end of the turrent
terms. ' It would make reductions
as follows: Sheriff, from $2,000 to
$1, $00; clerk,-from $1,800 to $1,
440; recorder, $1,000 to$8oo; coun
ty judge, from $900 to $720; treas
urer from 28500 to $400; county
superintendent, from $1,090 to $800 i
lhe assessors' pay usually - ranges
from $800 to $950, " and there is
provision in the bill for the salary
of that officer to be cut with . che
rest, at the rate of twenty per cent.
. The present salaries of the offi
cers are at a point where they have
stood for a long time. The sher
iff's pavever since the time of
Peter Rickard in that office has
been-$2,ooo per year with an al
lowance for a deputy only during
circuit court terms. In iqo-?, the
allowance for the deputy amounted
to $34-91- Fr 1904, the allowance
was $29 60 for the year. The
practical condition is that the sher
iff receives $2000 and pays his own
deputy. The cost of the deputy
hire amounts to several - hundred
dollars during the course of a year.
It cost Peter Rickard $600 per year
during the four years that he serv
ed in the office. " Sheriff Burnett
does not keep a regular .deputy in
the office but has one in every pre
cinct in the county. :By reason of
his long experience and fine ability
as an accountant and otherwise he
is able with such help as he occas
ionally provides at his own expense
to conduct the office on the $2000.
The proposal in the case of the
clerk is to cut the salary to $1440;
Uuder the present arrangement the
pay is $1,800, with ah allowance
for a deputy only during court
terms and in making up the exten
sions on the tax roll. The arrange
ment was made away back in the
Hufford dynasty in the" county
judge's office. Before that, both
the sheriff and the clerk were each
allowed a deputy at county expense
The court was of one political faith
however, and the sheriff and clerk
of another, and when a wave of
retrenchment struck the county,
the deputies were both cut off, save
the present small allowance The
deputy allowance in the clerk's
office amounts to about $175 per
year. In 1903, it was $182; in
1 904 , . $ 1 84. -Clerk Moses pays his
deputy $600 per year, putting up
the extra amount of more than $400
out of his own pocket.
In the recorder's office, there , is
no deputy allowance. The salary
is $1,000, and it is always paid, by
the public for recording deeds,
mortgages, and other documents.
The fees during the two years of
Recorder Vincent's first term were
in round numbers, $2,250, against
his salary of $2000 for the 2 years.
The fees received in the offiee from
the 1st of July to January ist, were
$615.60 The salary for the period
The treasurer's salary is $500,
and it is proposed te reduce , it to
$400. Treasurer Buchanan gives
a bond of $20,000- and j this bond
costs him $60 per year. As cut the
actual salary received by the treas
urer weuld be $340. The propasi-
tion is silly. - .'-
The aounty superintendent m
this new bill is to be cut from $1,
000 to $800 per year. . The k super
intendent visits each school in the
county twice a year. There are 58
schools and a trip to each of them
twice a year is said to involve about
4ooo miles of traveling;- - '
It is said to be the plan to with
draw the bills originally introduced
by the Benton members. These
were Carter' s bill to cut the , salar :
ies of the county judge and county
superintendent, and Avery's bill
abolishing the office of county -re
corder. It is supposed ' that the
hew bill will pass. It is also sur
mised that in case it does, that
thereafter there will be allowances
for deputies in the principal offices
