SHERIFFS OF OREGON MEET
STATE ASSOCIATION HOLDS
MEETING IX PORTLAND.
JJelinquent Tax Question Most Im
portant Topic of Discussion.
Session With Washington Men.
Sheriff Stevens had no' monopoly on his
Job yesterday afternoon, for his office was
occupied by more Sheriffs than had been,
together at one place since this time last
year, when the Oregon Sheriffs' Associa
tion met In Salem. At that meeting
Sheriff H. T. McClellan, of. Douglas
County, was elected president, and Sheriff
M. F. Corrigan, of Yamhill, secretary.
Those officers had charge of the meeting
yesterday, but before the session closed
their successors for the coming year were
named, the new officers being: Sheriff
Pomeroy, of Clatsop, president; and
8heriff J. W. Connell, of Washington, sec
retary. The association was organized in 1905 at
Portland, and the following year met at
Salem, and again this year in this city.
Astoria was selected as the meeting-place
for next year, the date to be fixed later.
The purpose of the organization is pri
marily for the members to get acquainted
and discuss such matters as affect con
duct of the office to the best interests of
the poeple. At yesterday's meeting the
question of sale of property for delinquent
tax claims was discussed, the new law
differing in Important particulars from
the old law.
Under the old law, delinquent taxes had
to be advertised before becoming a lien
on property, and at delinquent sale any
one was allowed to pay the taxes and re
ceive a provisional title, redeemable by
the prior owner within three years. The
new law abolishes the advertising feature,
but provides that when tax becomes de
linquent any one may pay the amount
due, with 15 per cent penalty added, and
receive a certificate which entitles him to
possession in case the prior owner falls
to redeem the certificate with Interest be
fore the expiration of three years. It was
voted as Uie sense of the association that
the certificate plan does not apply to the
An Inspection of the County Jail was
made by the visitors, who expressed them
selves much pleased with its condition
and the methods employed in Its manage
ment and in keeping the premises clean
and In sanitary shape.
The Sheriffs of Washington met yester
day at Vancouver, and today there will
be a joint session of the two bodies at
th Multnomah ' County Courthouse.
Through the courtesy of Manager Free
man, of The Oaks, the visitors of both
states will .be entertained at that resort
either this afternoon or evening, as ' de
cided upon at the meeting, which lg called
for H o'clock.

DARR0W TO GIVE ORATION
Lawyer Who Defended Haywood
Will Speak In City Labor Day.
Clarence S. Darrow, the famous Chi
cago Socialist and lawyer, who success
fully defended William D. Haywood, sec
retary of the Western Federation, of
Miners, in the sensational trial at Boise
last month, will deliver the Labor day ad
dress in Portland, on labor questions.
It is believed that Mr. Darrow will also
speak of the Haywood trial and tell of
the alleged conspiracy against the Fed
eration by the Mineowners' Association.
During the trial at Boise the committee
in charge of the local Labor day cele
bration attempted to secure Darrow for
an address here on that day, but could
not secure any definite assurance from
him. A letter was recently received by
the committee in whioh Darrow promised
to be present at the local celebration and
to deliver the address of the day. The
Oriental building at the Lewis and Clark
Fair Grounds will be fitted and deco
rated for the day and in addition to
other features, a baseball game between
the Frakes and Brewers has been ar
ranged. The Federated Trades Council will take
up the wood question and enter the
arena as an avowed enemy of the wood
trust. Tbis move was decided upon last
night at a meeting of the Council and a
committee was appointed to confer with
Lafe Pence regarding his offer to supply
wood to the city at $5 a cord. The Coun
cil accepted the invitation of Dr. J.
Whiteomb Brougher to attend services at
the White Temple, Sunday, August SL
when the pastor will speak on current
