OLYMPIA. "Wash., Oct. 15. (Special.)
The authorities of the new town of New
port, in Stevens County, have been wor
ried as to their ability to collect taxes for
the year 1903. The town was incorporated
last April, and the County Assessor in
making up his rolls had returned no
property as being in thejneorporated City
of Newport as it was riot an organization
prior to March L The Auditor has since
then been -in a quandary as to whether
he should now go to work and change the
rolls and extend the Newport levy for
The question-was finally referred to the
State Auditor, who asked thg Attorney
General for his opinion. In answering the
question the Attorney-General says:
'.'The County. Assessqr should have noted
on the assessment rolls the fact that the
property which fell in the corporate limits
was situated in the town of Newport
There was ample time to have done this
because the rolls were not turned ver to
the Auditor by the Assessor until the
first Monday of August This omission
ought not to prevent the town from exer
cising its right to levy -a tax. From the
records establishing the boundaries of the
town the Auditor can readily ascertain
what property is situated therein and ex

SURVEY IN HARNEY VALLEY
WHISTLER'S PARTY INVESTIGAT

Union County Citizens Appeal
for Water Supply.
HARNEY, Or., Oct 15 The field party
of the Geological Survey In Oregon, under
the direction of John T. Whistler, district
engineer, consisting of M. D. Williams and
Frederick C Huber, is continuing the de
velopment of topography of irrigable lands
In Harney Valley. Something over one
half of the valley north of Malheur Lake
has now been covered. It is estimated
that the work can be completed by De
cember L r
Another field party, consisting of Her
bert D. Newell and Edmund L Davis, is
investigating an additional reservoir site
on Lower Bully Creek and one on Upper
Willow Creek. The Willow Creek reser
voir site is being studied with a view of
ascertaining the possibility of covering
certan lands on the wes sldo of Upper
Willow Creek Valley.
The work on the Umatilla project has
been in charge of Thomas B. White and
a party of four assistants. After a full
examination of the reservo.ir site, the
canal lino to Umatilla River will be taken
up, topographic work being carried on at
the same time.
A representative body of citizens of
Union County, Oregon, has presented to
the Chief Engineer of the United States
Geological Survey a statement of the ex
isting conditions In that county, accom
panied with a request that investigations
and surveys be made of certain reservoir
sites and of the possibilities of develop
ing an underground water supply by
means of artesian wells. The petition as
serts that Union County contains more
than 100,000 acres of fertile irrigable land,
and that the present water supply dur
ing the two months of low water suf
fices to irrigate only about 1000 acres.
Under the present conditions there can
be no material development of the natural
resources of this county, and the peti
tioners request early action on the part
of the Survey. It Is claimed that the
natural flow of the Grand Ronde River
has of late years been decreasing until
there is not enough water during July
and August to supply the existing- rights,
the lack of water seriously endangering
orchards already planted and the gardens
and farms already established.
The petitioners assert that there Is suf
ficient flood water now going to waste
which if stored would Irrigate the whole
valley, and that there are excellent sites
for reservoirs. An early examination of
the situation on the Grand Ronde River in
this section has been ordered, by the Chief

condition than any other county In the
state," said County Clerk J. W. Rowland

It another year without another county
The expenditures for the last six months
amounted to $47,695, and for the preceding
six months $30,391, or $7S,OS6 for 12 months.
Of this sum, $33,000, or nearly half, was

the county treasury $65,456 In cash, and
there Is due on the 1902 assessment roll
$24,000,. of which a large part has already
been collected and is in the hands of the
Sheriff. Amounts due on previous assess
ment rolls bring the total resources up to
Some bf the back taxes cannot be col
lected, but enough of them- are good to
make the financial assets of the county
amount to some $90,000. Marion County
has not a. dollar of debt, bonded or other
wise, except less than $2000 of warrants
which have been issued recently but not
presented for payment 1
The county has a first-class Courthouse,
and Its bridges are, as a rule, in excellent
condition. With no heavy expenditures in
anticipation and the county running upon
a policy of economy, the taxpayers have
before them a much better condition than "J
existed a nair cozen years ago.

PRUNES IN POOR DEMAND.
Association Holds Price Up to'Tvro
and One-Half. Cents.
-SALEM, - Oct 15. (Special.)-Dullness
and -uncertainty prevail in the prune
market The greater portion of the crop
in this vicinity has been harvested and
by the middle of next week all the grow
ers In the hill country south of Salem will
tiavo their prunes cured. The yield has
been large and the quality Is first class.
The prunes are rich in sugar, of excellent
flavor and of unusually good texture.
The dried fruit this year shows no "bloat
ers" such as are found some years. The
crop having turned out bettor than was
expected, the growers have nothing now to
trouble them but selling the crop.
It Is estimated that the Oregon crop. In
cluding that of Clark County., Washing
ton, will amount to about iwo carioaos.
Of this quantity probably a little more
than one-third has been sold at prices
ranging from 4 to 44 cents for the 40 to 50
to the pound size. The sales at the high
er price were made early and recently 4
cents for 40s, or a 2-cent basis, has
prevailed. Lower prices have been made
by a number of dealers. A little less
than one-third of the entire crop will
pass through the hands of the Willamette
Valley Prune Association, the Umpqua
Valley Association and the Clark County
Association and Individual dealers who are
at present holding for a 2-cent basis
price. It is estimated that more than a
third of the crop Is unsold and In the
hands of growers who are not Identified
with associations and who are looking for
a chance to sell at the best price they
Thu situation seems to be that Eastern
dealers have .not shown much interest in
prunes and the market has been quiet
thus far. , Association fruit has been
held at a 2Mrcent basl3 price. In the
meantime outsiders have been selling for
less and of late there has been a slower
sale for prunes af the2&-cent basis. An oc
casional car Is sold at that price. The
question, before the association is whether
to continue to hold at 2& cents until the
weaker growers have finished selling, In
the belief that the market will then
stiffen a'llttle, or to drop the price to 2i
The Willamette Valley, Umpqua Val
ley and Clark County Associations are
acting together. At the last conference on
the subject it was decided that the asso
ciation price shall be maintained. The
sales committee was of the opinion that
the supply of fruit in the world, and the
prices being demanded in California, war
rant Oregon growers In holding for a 2i

Santa Clara galley growers, in Califor

though some sales have been made at 2i
