Is a few more than 800.
The Columbia Laundry Company
asks a cut from S7100 to 12600. The
James L Marshall Manufacturing Com
pany requests that an assessment 01
13000 on money, notes and accounts be
eliminated. The Concordia Club is com
plaining against assessment on fur

Last Summer when the assessments
were being made the Willamette Com
pany wanted to show down with its
competitors on values, but an agree

The United States Cast Iron Pipe

New Jersey, and under any theory pro
tests that the assessment should not
be more than $6667.68. which is 60 per
cent of its Oregon book accounts on

theory that the mere fact that collect

such concerns have been arbitrary and
there seems to be a unanimous desire
on their part to squirm out.
