FRUIT TREES GO EAST
IN JOY OVER VICTORY
CITY AVINS AS IMPORTANT POINT
IX SUIT RESISTING ASSESSMENT.
Case of Olson Against, the City Dis
missed Edward Flamiigraa. Sen.
Deputy City Attorney Dunlway gained a
point yesterday In the suit of "Willamette
Steam Mills Lumbering & Manufacturing
Company et al., resisting the assessment
for the extension of North Sixteenth street
from Upshur to Front. The case -was
brought in the form of a petition for a
review of the acts of the Common Coun
cil. Mr. Duniway argued that the proper
proceeding was "a suit In etjulty so the
city can make a defense upon the merits
of the controvery, and Judge Frazer eo
held. The disputed assessments aggregate
several thousand dollars. The petitioners
contend that the Council was without
jurisdiction, and that the record falls to
show that notice was sent to the owners
of the -property sought to be appropriated,
and some other irregularities. Mr. DunJ
way says the owners of the property to
be taken were not made parties to the
petition. He argued that a suit in equity
was the proper course, and the city could
then make a defense; it could not interpose
on a writ of review and show what has
been done independent of the record. He
desired to prove the facts and to establish
that the petitioners did have notice. Judge
Frazer, in deciding that a suit in equity
should be brought instead of the wr.t of
review, stated that ft was the Intention
of the law that such cases be tried on
their merits and technical questions dis
couraged. That McCunn Estate.
In the contempt proceedings in the mat
ter of the estate of P. C. McCann, de
ceased. Judge Frazer yesterday directed
John F. Logan, the administrator, to file
an answer stating the fact of his having
turned over the property of the estate
to O'Day &. Tarpley, attorneys for the al
leged heirs. The case, so iar as it con
cerns Mr. Logan, will then be dismissed.
Tho property amounts to about 57003, and
is principally cash. The motion of O'Daj
& Tarpley asking that the motion be dis
missed requiring them to show cause why
they should not be punished for contempt
for not surrendering the property to the
receiver appointed "by Judge Cleland, was
denied. O'Day Sz Tarpley were given 10
days to answer why they have .not turned
over the property. They have admitted
its possession, and a future order by Judge
Frazer will probably dispose of this part
of the controversy.
County Judge Cake ordered the McCann
estate distributed to James ,McCann, Kate
"Wood and Anna McDonough, residing in
Pennsylvania, whom he held were the legal
heirs. John F. Logan, administrator of
the estate, then surrendered the property
to O'Day & Tarpley, who appeared as at
torneys for these heirs. Chester V. Dolph
representing the State of Oregon, filed
escheat proceedings disputing the title of
these alleged heirs. Judge Cleland set
aElde the order of the County Court and
appointed a receiver, and ordered the
property placed in the receiver's hands,
pending the final disposition of the escheat
case. This was not done, and the con
tempt proceedings followed. "W. "W. Cot
ton and "W. D. Fenton appeared as counsel
for O'Day & Tarpley, and argued num
erous objections to the surrender of the
property to the receiver, among them that
the McCann heirs had not been served
with summons in the escheat case, and
that O'Day & Tarpley were not parties at
the time the receiver was appointed Mr.
Cotton said tho McCann heirs weie en
titled to their day In court, and had not
had it Mr. Dolph explained that the cita
tion had been regularly published.

The suit for damages of Peter Olsen
against the City of Portland for malicious
arrest was dismissed in the United States
Circuit Court yesterday, and the plaintiff
was permitted to withdraw the complaint.
This suit was similar In some respects to
a recent one from Oregon City, In which
the demurrer to the complaint was sus
tained. It is thought for this icason ap
plication was made for withdrawal of
Jacob Hartman, a native of Germany,
was granted naturalization papers.

tained by misrepresentation. The courr,
however, granted until Wednesday for

Good Trade This Season, Particularly
to Roclcy aiountnin States Apple
SALEM. Or., March 3. Local nursery
men report that the demand for fruit trees
this season is as brisk s usual, and in
somo localities there is an Increased de
mand. Small ordera are being filled daily.
About the middle of the present month
shipments to the Rocky Mountain states
will begin, and then the trees av:11 go In
large quantities. Six carloads of trees
that have been housed this winter avHI go
to Montana. This Is, however, only a
small part of what will bo shipped from
Willamette Valley nurseries to Montana
dealers. The chief demand seems to be
for apple trees, and for winter varieties.
Lease of Land at Cascade Loelu.
The Board cf Portage Railway Commie
sloncrs, consisting of Governor Gecr, Sec
retary of State Dunbar and Treasurer
Moore, today leased the strip of land
owned by the state at the Cascade Locks
to Clack &. Huff, of The Dalles. This strip
of land is about 400xSOO feet and adjoins
the Columbia River just aboA-e the locks.
The land was acquired at the time the
Portage Railway was constructed, and has
been idle since the railway was abandoned.
Recently the Cascade Construction Com
pany asked tho Board of Commlss'oners to
lease the land, and they called for bld3
for the use of the property. Two offers
were submitted, one hy the Cascade Con
struction Company, of $12 50 per month,
and the other by Clark & Huff, of 530 "per
month. Tho lease will terminate with tho
convening or the next session of the Leg
islature, as the Board would not make a
lease for a longer term.
Marlon County Assessment.
The clerks in the office of County Asses
sor Hobart are correcting the present
ownership maps preparatory to making
the ISO) assessment Thio work will be
completed in about a week, and a force of
field assistants will then be sent out to
assess the property. It Is not known how
many men will be put in the field, but
probably not less than 12 will be thus em
ployed. The many transfers of property this year
have made It neceesary to make more than
the usual number of changes In the pres
ent ownership maps. In addition to these
changes, the new road district law has
required changes In the lines representing
the road district boundaries. Thece alter
ations haA'e been made and the maps will
soon be up to date. In cery respect
Marlon County's present ownership maps
are ery valuable accessories to the office
of the Assessor. Each map represents a
township of land, and Is about six feet
square. Every subdivision, farm, block or
lot Is shown, together with Its dimensions
and the namo of the owner. When a
transfer Is made the name of the new
owner is Inserted and a note Is made
of tho book and page where the deed
Is recorded. The maps are hung en rol
lers, like window shades, and can be
rolled up out of sight For the convenience
of field assistants when out assessing prop
erty, photographs of the maps hae been
made and each man Is supplied with a
photograph of the territory he Is to cover.
He can thus check off each tract as he as
sesses it and always has a record that
will prevent his omitting any land. Afl
these photographs are Intended more as
a guide to the land than to tho owners.
It Is not neceQ3ary to make new ones

United States Constitution, the executive
had no power to Interfere In such mat
ters, thero being no association of Church
and State, as was tho case in Cuba under
tho Spanish regime.

Intentions of the Trcasnry Depart
ment. NEW YORK. March 3. A special to tho
Herald from Washington says:
It Is the intention of the Treas
ury Department as soon as the
pending financial bill becomes a
law, to expedite as fast as possible the
coinage of the silver bullion purchased
under the Sherman act, still remaining
in tho Treasury. There is still on hand
bullion purchased under this act, costing
$75,000,605, and represented by that amount
of Treasury notes outtsandlng. The De
partment has been coining this bullion into
dollars at the rate of $1,800,000 a month.
The financial bill authorizes the coinage
of enough of thl3 bullion into subsidiary
coins to bring the total subsidiary coin
age up to $100,000,000. This will require
about $25,000,000 in subsidiary coins. In
addition to this, the Department pro
poses to Increase the coinage of silver
dollars to $4,000,000 a month, and tho ef
fect will be to have all this bullion coined
and all Treasury notc3 retired within a
year and a half.
