State Treasurer's Office to Demand
' Funds Retained In Issue Over
Interstate Bridge; Suit Looms
as Settlement of Case.
SALEM. Or., April 27. fSpecial.)
Through an oversight of the Multno
mah County officials or the State Tax
Commission there will be no money
in the State Treasury this year for
the payment of interest on the inter
state bridge bonds.
The County Court places the blame
on the Tax Commission and the Com
mission declares the county Is at fault.
At any rate, no levy was made by
the Commission for the payment of
the money snd It has nond to pay.
State Treasurer Kay today received
a check from the County Treasurer
of Multnomah for $294,000. the last
payment of the first half of the taxes,
and an announcement that $31,250 had
been retained for paying interest on
the bonds. The annual interest is
562.500, and. unless a. settlement is
leached, the county wid retain the
balance out of the last-half tax pay
ments. County Oeclared In WroiiK.
Under the law providing for the
bridge, notification of the interest on
the nonds must be made to the State
Tax Commission by the County Court
before January 1 each year. Notifica
tion was mailed to the Commission the
last day of December, but the tax
levy had been made and the various
counties notified of it. It was then
too late to make a change to include
a levy tor the payment of interest on
"No levy having- been made for that
specific purpose, the county clearly has
no right to withhold money with
which to pay this interest," declared
Assistant State Treasurer Ryan. "This
department cannot be held responsible
for the mistake, for it needs every
cent for specific appropriations.
.Honey Meld Is to Be Demanded.
"Jf the county insists upon retain
ing the money the only thing I see
to Jo 's for the State Treasurer to
demand interest on it. That probably
would result in the filing of a suit
to determine whether the state has to
pay. This office will make a demand
upon the County Treasurer for the
money which he is withholding."
The law providing for the building
of the bridge empowered Multnomah
County to raise the money for building
it by issuing bonds, the state to pay
tho intc-ist on the bonds. After a
certain period the county is to start
a. sinking fund to liquidate the in
debtedness. State Treasurer Kay said that be
would notify the members of the Tax
Commission tomorrow of the action of
the Multnomah County Treasurer, and
it is probable that Attorney-General
Brown will be asked to advise the
Commission regarding what steps it
should take to collect the money.
