County Assessor Reed Requests
Opinion to Determine Iia
biltty of Portland.
District Attorney Evans has just
certified to County Assessor Reed an
important ruling bearing on the lia
bility to taxation of certain real es
tate owned by the city of Portland.
The two points decided are as follows:
First That real property acquired
by the city which had been sold for
delinquent street and sewer assess
ments is exempt from taxation while
owned by the city.
Second The old fire station on
Fourth street, near Yamhill, owned
by the city and leased by it to private
parties for use in the conduct of pri
vate business, is taxable for the rea
son that it is used as proprietary
property for profit, and not as public
or corporate property.
Municipal Corporations Affected.
The question invo'ved in the first
point has state-wide application and
affects all municipal corporations. It
issued out of a ruling by Attorney
General Brown last December In a
matter pertaining to the city of
Marshfield. That city, under charter
power to it granted, improved numer
ous streets, assessing the cost to the
property benefited. The assessments
in some cases have remained unpaid,
have become delinquent, and warrants
have been issued for the sale of the
property in order to make up, from
the proceeds of the sale, the necessary
funds to pay for the improvement.
The property has been sold and, there
being no other bidder, the city bid In
The city in each case of sale became
the holder of the certificate', of sale,
and holds certificates In its absolute
right, the period of redemption having
Attorney-General Makca RulInR.
The attorney-general, after quoting
the statute pertaining to the exemp
tion of corporate property, made the
The real property in question, under the
facta above stated, is without question the
property of the city, the only question be
ins whether it is public or corporate prop
erty, as that term may be distinguished
from proprietary and used or intended for
corporate purposes. As seen by the state
ment of facts, it was not purchased or ac
quired voluntarily by the city as an in
vestment or for sale, but was acquired as
part of the procedure of perforcing a
corporate or governmental function, that
is, by - reason of the improvement of the
streets. The cost was assessed against
the property benefited, whereby a lien for
such cost was created, and the city as
sumed the responsibility under the law for
the lnforcement thereor, and became pri
marily liable to the bondholders for the
bonds represented by the liens. The pur
chase of such property upon the foreclos
ure of such liens was, therefore, the
qulsition of 'the same in a public or cor
porate capacity, and not an investment of
trust or other tunas, as in a proprietary
capacity; hence. It follows that the prop
erty is held by the city as public or cor
porate property and used or intended for
use for corporate purposes. It is being
used for the corporate purposes of street
improvements, and is, therefore, exempt
The attorney-general held also that
the point involved was directly de
cided to the effect above stated in
the recent case of Rovinson vs. In
diana and Arkansas Lumber & Mfg.
Co., 194 S. W. 870.
City Property Not Listed.
After reading Attorney-General
Brown's opinion. Assessor Reed asked
District Attorney Evans to pass of
ficially upon the matter relating to
the city of Portland, with the result
above stated. The largest acquisitions
of property of the city of Portland
are made under the charter amend
ment adopted May 17, 1918, which au
thorized the city to issue $1,500,000
bonds to provide an additional meth
od for the collection of delinquent
assessments. Under the terms of this
amendment the city protects its lien
for the street and sewer assessment
and also pays any general taxes that
may be owing before it receives a
certificate of sale.
Assessor Reed said jesterday tnat
he will not be able to make an est
mate of the amount of city property
that will become exempt under the
rulings of Attorney-General Brown
and District Attorney Evans until the
city certifies to him a list of the
property it has acquired. The amount,
however, will be very considerable.

NEW BILLS AT THE THEATERS
THERE can be no difference of
opinion as to the merits of the
new bill at the Hippodrome for it is a
good one all through. The topline
number is unusually worth while. A
sextette of dainty youthful dancing
girls step merrily through the mys
teries of assorted dances. One of the
group is a splendid toe dancer, whose
specialty is emphasized by grace and
ease of execution.
A series of folk dances of Scotland
attract much interest, especially as
the young dancers wear plaids and
tartans of picturesque cut and color
combinings. One delightful specialty
is an Irish song set to Irish steps.
This too comes in attractive costumes
of Erin flavor. The act is called a
'Military Revue" and it starts off
with the sextette garbed as girl sol
diers, dancing a smart specialty set
to a medley of martial airs. An ad
mirable thing about their work is the
freshness and youth of the g'rls, and
the fact that they attend strictly to
the business of entertaining with
dignity and grace.
A plump comedian who fits his
wearing apparel rather closely is Fred
Lewis, who has new and original
methods of carrying on. He ambles
on with a dilapidated book, the leaves
of which keep falling out just when
he is in the midst of a top note. He
holds a heart to heart confab with
the audience and brings on a violent
enmity with "traps" in the orchestra,
whom he reproachfully calls "Waldo."
He has a capital song plaint "I've
heard all about the 'nights of Colum
bus' but where did he spend his days,"
which brings, down the house. His
jokes are clever and his gay, good
humor counts for much.

of fun, with a note of heart interest
tucked in for deep thought. The skit
