Oswald West, state land agent,
was in town over Thanksgiving,
looking after his hopyard on the
island south of town. Mr. West
has revolutionized the affairs of the
state land office, and made of the
state land agency au establishment
for the defense of the public domain
of the commonwealth. By his
energy, he has searched out small
tracts of land owned here and there
by the state of which the state had
no account whatever, the sales of
which already aggregate more than
40,000. He has run down many
frauds and brought the perpetrators
to the surface, and it is suspected
that he is on the track of more,

The preliminary estimates in'
dicate that the state taxes for each
county this year will be
only about one half that of last year.
The total revenue that will be re
quired for state purposes will be
about $625,000. A part of the de
crease will be due to the referen
dum on the appropriation bill
w nen the time comes for paying
these taxes there will be apprecia
tion of the action of Governor
Chamberlain in demanding of the

of the emergency clause so the peO'

Walked all Over Washington Was
Hard Game Fifteen to Naught.
Seattle, November 30th. Before
a crowd of 3,000 people, the State
College men of Oregon administer
ed a decisive defeat to the Washing
ton eleven at lootball here this af
ternoon. The score was 15 to o,
the result ot three touchdowns, one
in the first and two in the last half.
It was a heavy line-bucking game,
in which OAC showed great super
iority over the Washingtonians,
tearing through their line at will,
Root, Walker and Dolan accom
plishing four to 10 yards almost ev
ery time they struck the Washing
ton line. A greater score would
have, been made, save for the num
erous penalties inflicted, sometimes
at critical moments on the Oregon
men, 35 yards in all being exacted
by Umpire Griffith, while none
was given Washington.
The first touchdown was made af
ter 20 miuutes of play by Dolan,
who starred throughout the game.
It was earned at straight football
with line plunges and occasional
dashes outside of tackle by Root,
Walker, Dolan, Griffith and Abra
ham. Another score was narrow
ly averted by Washington in the
same half, the ball being all the
time in the Northerners territory.
The second touchdown came early
in the second half and was the con
sequence ofa 57 yard run by Root,
who broke through the line, and by
twisting, hurdling and dodging, es
caped the mass of players and was
only prevented from crossing the
Washington line for a touchdown
by being tackled by Brinker under
the very shadow of the goal posts.
Will Dunlap, OAC's giant guard
was one of the stars of the game.
He caught a blocked kick on Wash
ington's 40 yard line, and, pursued
by the whole field of players, sped
the intervening distance for the
third touchdown. Cooper after
playing a beautiful game went out
after the first touchdown in the
second half, being relieved by Rose
The best gain by Washington was
a 30 yard run around left end by
Smith. Bundy, Rinehart, Emily
and Griffith all played slpendid ball
the whole team in fact, working
lfke a machine, much after the
fashion of the Willamette game.
The universal expression here is
that OAC is the strongest team on
