Assessor of Franklin County Wins
Tax Flslit Waged Three Years.
PASCO, Wash., Sept. 2S. (Special.)
County Assessor McCotter has won a
fight which he has been making for
three years to procure a lower state
tax for Frankliu County and a higher
ratio for public service corporations.
Two years ago bo raised all assess
ments in this county in an effort to
make a 50 per cent assessment, but was
unable to convince the State Tax Com
mission that he had really done so.
Last year he got a raise of ratio from
28 per cent to 36.08 per cent, but this
: ear the ratio was raised by the State
Board of Equalization to 44.50 per cent.

Federal Judge AV'olverton Monday
decided in favor of the patentees a
case Involving the validity of the pat
ent issued to Moser & Root, November
15, 1904, on a novel system of keeping
a daily posted record of balance books,
of which the Irwin Hodson Company,
of Portland, holds the exclusive license.
The patented book, it wan shown in
