KOSEBCRO. Or, Feb. 14 -(Specie!.)
la a decree bsnded down In the Cir
cuit Court here today. Judge Hamilton
held that the taxes duo from the lands
of the Southern Orrcon Company In
Douglas County for the year 10J were
collectible, and tbat the holdings of the
company were subject to sale to sat
lafy the delinquent certificates tha
same as other lands on which the taxes
were not paid. The unpaid taxes
amount to about UO.OvS.
.Suit wss brought aaainst the South
era Oregon Company several months
ago to 'compel them to pay tho Vx
due on their lands In this county for
the year ltf. An answer was filed by
the southern Oregon Company In which
It was denied that the taxes were
lien against the land, or that they re
mained due and unpaid on the date of
reaching; delinquency. It was also al
leged by the defense that the certifi
cates of delinquency were not filed reg
ularly with the clerk.
Another contention offered by the de
fense wss that the Federal courts hsd
decreed that their Interest In the lands
did not exceed II SO an acre, while In
some Instances they were assessed as
hlrh as an acre. Tho defense con
tended this was sufficient to nullify
tb entire assessment.
Tha County Attorney offrred In evi
dence the original certificates of de
linquency, which Judge Hamilton held
were regular and sufficient to warrant
disposal of the lands for tsxes. At tor
ney John M. Uuerln. of counsel for the
8outhern Oregon Company, announced
that ba would appeal the case to the
