Local Management Makes Arrange ments for Interesting Races and Superb Exhibit. Arrangements to take care of ap proximately 100,000 people for the first annual harness horse meet and Paclflo National Livestock Show, during the week of September 21-26. are being made. The various committees of the Country Club and Livestock Associa tion which submitted their reports at the postponed meeting of the directors yesterday afternoon declared that the general programme as planned together with the incidentals and feature attrac tions which will be offered should sure ly attract a daily attendance of not un der 18,000 as an average. The attendance at last year's State Fair at Salem was more than 10.000, and the state capital has net the local popu lation nor the central location of Port land to draw the crowds from the many livestock centers of the Northwest. For this reason, the local management fig ures that the first exposition here should register a much larger attend ance than Salem did last year. One of the most trying situations which the management will have to face is the fact that the entries in the different divisions In Ihe livestock show are swamping the association, and that unless a limit is placed on the number of nominations in the various classes there will be no space to ac commodate the late entries. It was es timated at yesterday afternoon's meet ing that the 12 snow barns would. take care of close to 3000 head of livestock in the main divisions, horses, cattle, sheep and swine, but the entries so far recorded are hut little under that num ber. The only alternative will be to close the entries before the time al ready specified or else erect temporary canvas pavilions to furnish quarters for the over-supply of sto-;k. It was stated that the live stock show here would embrace close to 20 per cent hi excess of the number of entries filed with the State Fair management for the reason that many Washington points are sending their exhibits here without routing them to Salem, th. next preceding point in the big North Pacific Fair circuit. .... Tnitns arrived yesterday and will be Installed today. These are novel mechanical devices which do away with having gatemen and ticket takers, and the five turnstiles are sup posed to be able to handle the crowds much faster than a similar number of employes at the entrances. All that will be needed will be two or three young women to make the proper change and the turnstiles will do the rest, registering the admissions not only at the gate but In the general offices. F. O. Downing, chairman of the gen eral management committee, reported that a goodly number of privileges and concessions had already been contract ed for and that his Office Is flooded with informal bids for various privi leges. It was decided to leave it en tirely to Mr. Downing's committee to select and arrange for all accommoda tions and comforts which might tend to please the public No effort will be made to put the concessions on a money-making basis this year. Only such as are absolutely necessary for the convenience of the crowds will- be considered. FORM MEDICAL SOCIETY Pbysicisna of Counties Yamhill and Folk Elect Officers. DALLAS, Or., Sept. .

RESISTS PAYING TUXES O.'R. & N. CO. FILES SUIT IX CIRCUIT COURT. Allegation Is Made That $2C,000 Taxes ou 16,000,000 or Money, Notes and Accounts Illegal. Contending that the action ot the County Board of Equalisation in up holding the 229,000 tax assessment of its money, notes and accounts was Illegal, the O. R. & N. Company, through Its attorney, will 'file suit in the State Cir cuit Court today to have that decision set aside. The company will endeavor to have the tax reduced to $9000, it being ad mitted that at the time of the assessment the company had JS0O.000 ot taxable prop erty. Should the case go against the rail road company, it will be compelled to pay not only the 229,O0O taxes, but 30.000 additional as penalty, and the nre' which has accrued during the months it has remained unpaid. Assessor Sigler valued the money, notes and accounts of the company at $16,800,000.

R. & N.. and was being expended in building new roads, it confirmed Mr. Slglera assess ment. The company then appealed to the Supreme Court. Arthur C. Spencer, the company s at torney, gives as a reason for the aban donment of the appeal and the Institu tion of a new suit that the law of 190, authorizing the appeal, is- unconstitu tional A temporary injunction was Issued yesterday by Judge Gantenbein. restrain ing Sheriff Stevens from collecting the tax pending the decision of the ease. SUIT OVER STREET CONTRACT Property-Owners Protest Over Cost of Fill on East Washington. Whether the contractors, who made the East Washington-street fill, between East Water street and Union avenue, charged an exorbitant price when they fixed their rate at 40 cents a yard, or whether that is reasonable for the work done, is the question which is at issue before a Jury in Judge Bronaugh'a department of, the Circuit Court. It is the contention of Not tingham & Co.. and of Joseph Paquet that 25 cent's a yard is a reasonable price. The City Council advertised for bids for the work, and accepted that of the Pa ciflo Bridge Company. Testimony taken yesterday by the city showed that ell the property-owners on each side of the street have paid their as sessments, with the exception of the litigants. One of yesterday's witnesses was Whitney L. Boise. He said that the property near Est Washington street doubled in value Immediately after the fill was completed, in December 190a. and that three lots sold by the Hawthorne estate before the fill was made, are now worth between Smo end SS000 each.
