The Salem Journal says cards
have been scattered throughout the
valley, sent out from Independence
to attract people there for hoppick

"Plenty of booze and a h 1 of a

such a place for permitting their
boys and girls to go to pick hops.
The Journal rises up and protests,
declaring "it will keep away de
cent families and is a slander on the
intelligence of the people."

A new Postoffice It will
Eclipse Every Office in the
Corvallis is to have a new post-
office. It will be of such character
as to cause the bosom of every Cor-
vallisite to swell with pride, and
the eye of every stranger within
our gates to dilate with admiration.
It will eclipse any postoffice of its
class in Oregon. In the matter of
conveniences, lights and fittings it
will be the equal of any postoffice
in the country. The old boxes and
furniture now in use will be re
manded to some other less fortun
ate town than is Corvallis, and in
stead there will be new boxes of
the most modern design, framed in
Oak, hung in the richest fashion
and in every respect of rich and
elegant finish. The floor of the
lobby, will be of tile. Instead of
two windows as now, there will be
half a dozen, one for general deliv-
ery, one for stamps, one for regis
try, one for. carriers and one for
money orders. , The plan is to have
the establishment . perfectly adapted
to the carrier system, which will
come in the near future. Corvallis
people have not dreaded of it, but
if the business of the office grows
in the future as it is growing now,
delivery by carriers will be institut
ed within three years, certainly not
later than four. A growth like
that of last year, would make it
certain in three. For the quarter
ending July 30th, the receipts of
the office showed an increase of 20
per cent. It is growth that is
quietly going on while people are
sleeping, and seems scheduled to go
on in the future.
The new postoffice is to be locat
ed in a building according to the
following specifications, taken from
the Portland Journal of last Wed
nesdav: For Corvallis the depart
ment accepted the proposal of Arch'
le J. Johnson to lease new quarters
for the postoffice on the north side
of Madison street, between First and
Second streets, for a term of five
years from November 1, 1906, in
eluding complete equipment of heat,
light, safe and water
Mr. Johnson is out cf town, and
the foregoing facts from the Journ
al are all that is known relative to
the" contract between him and the
government. That he is to furn
ish the postoffice fittings and that
they are to cost $4,000 is pretty
definitely understood. That the
office will be removed to the new
place early in November certainly
not later than' December 1st, is ful
ly expected. That when the new
modern office is finally in service it
will be a place to which all Corval
lisites will show the stranger with
pride and satisfaction, is certain.
When to the splendid college build
ings and grounds, the first-class
court house and grounds, the very
creditable city hall, Hotel rvalhs,
fine bank buildings and the splend
id mountain water system is added
a modern postoffice, Corvallis
One of the most glaring exhi
bitions of cussedness that ever
transpired in this town is the re
moval of flowers and plants from
the gardens at the city hall. In
most instances they are palled up
by the roots and carried away.
They were put there by public spir
ited persons for the beautification
of the town, and, after the dilapi
dation that had surrounded the hall
for years, it would seem that there
would have been none mean enough
to undo what had been done. Hell
isn't hot enough for the skunks or
skuskesses that do it. The place
is watched now and all the penal
ties cf the law will be summarily
dealt out in case of a capture. It
is of some in erest to add, that cer
tain parties are suspected.

Kline's private fire department
wzs completed yesterday, and there
was a test. From the alley back of
the store, a stream was thrown
from a two inch hose through a
five-eighths nozzle across the s.de-
walk on the other side of the block,
a distance ot lull 120 ieet. ihe
efficacy of three such streams in or
about the store in case of a blaze
would, it will be seen, be .very
eat. The wonder is that other
establishments do not make similar
provisions for fighting fire. ;
The County board of Equaliza
tion has been in session all week.
In all, riot more than three dozen
taxpayers have appeared to raise a
kick against their taxes. There
are something like 2.000 taxpayers
in tne county, and the most of them
are saving tt-eir vials of wrath to
uncork at taxpaying time to the
sheriff, who has nothing to do with
the fixing of the taxes. Of the
two or three dozen who have ap
peared before the board, only a few
have asked for their assess
ments to be lowered, and not one
demanded a raise. A reduction of
$245 was made in Judge Wood
ward's assessment, and a slight re
duction was made for Fred Bu
chanan. The two railroads that traverse
Benton county pay taxes this year
almost double that of former years.
The valuation per mile has been
practically doubled by Assessor
Davis. The C. & E. which has 36
miles of track in Benton is assessed at
$4,000 a mile on its track and $205
a mile for rolling stock. The total
valuation of its property in the
county is $160,000. It was $85,
000 last year. The Southern Pa
cific pays on a valuation of $104,'
000, its track being valued at $8,-
000 per mile and its rolling stock
at $480. Its mileage in the county
is 12 miles. Neither railroad has
so far had its officials before the
county board of equalization, pro
testing against the new assessment
will be a town to
for none of them.

AFTER THREE YEARS.
Widow Discovered Part of
Land She Bought in Ben
ton Belonged to Rail
rdad. Interest attaches to the case of
Mrs. Alvina Robinson and the ex
perience she has had with a farm
she purchased in Benton county.
Three years ago she arrived from
the East and bought a place on the
Peak road a dozen or fifteen miles
westward horn Corvallis. There
was 30 acres of land under cultiva
tion and comfortable farm buildings
on the ranch. Not lone ago. as a
result of a survey, she discovered
that 15 acres or one-h?lf of her cul
tivated land was on a quaiter'own-
ed by the railroad company. Of
equal importance to her was the
discovery made at the same time
that the farm, building were also
on the railroad section. , It was all
a most unwelcome discovery for out
in that country 15 acres of tillable
land is a good part of a farm and
thelo6Softhe 15 acres that is on
the railroad section means much to
her. She is a widowed lady and of
most excellent character; She sup
posed when she made the purchase
that all that was inside the fence
was to become hers. This week
she was before the county board of
equalization asking for a reduction
of her assessment on the eround
that she had been the past three years
paying on land that did. not belong
to her, the whole property, build
ings and railroad land having ; also
been included in this year's assess
ment. Her petition was granted
by the board. .
