Northern Pacific Corrals Gov
ernment Oats Contracts
by Means of Dummy.
BUYS GRAIN IN CHICAGO
Haul Made to Ptigct Sound Porls at
About Fifty Per Cent of the
OLYMPIA. "Wash.. Jan. 6. (Special.)
The statement is made here today by a
high authority In srain shipping and rail
road rates that the recently awarded con
tract by the Quartermaster's department
lor 1600 tons of oats wont to a confidential
representative of the Northern Pacific
Railway and that the contract 1k belns
HHed by that company, to the exclusion
of bona fide Pacific Coast bidder.".
Concerning this contract the transpor
tation committee of the Portland Cham
ber of Commerce lias demanded an ex
planation from the Northern Pacific Rail
way, but which Is not yet forthcoming.
The committee has believed that the rail
road discriminated in rates in favor of
Seattle and against Portland, to enable
produce men in the former city to secure
The best rate obtainable by. Portland
bidders from the O. R. & X. was $S per
ton from Missouri River points. These
bidders can buy Eastern oats as cheaply
as their Seattle competitors, yet the suc
cessful Seattle, bidder offered oats at
prices that could nol be met unless one
got a ?5 rate from the railroad.
The authority above quoted declares
that the railroad adapted the same t3ctlcs
three years ago in bidding on 4000 tons of
oats for the Government. The railroad
submitted a bid. but through a dummy
representative, then bought the oats it
self In Chicago and filled the order. In
doing this, it received about 50 per cent
of the published freight tariff on oats
from Chicago to Seattle, but the rate
discrimination was in favor of itself.
Eastern Washington bidders were under
bid $2 per ton and the result was the
lowering of prices on Washington oats
and the depriving of the Pacific growers
of the Government contracts. The same
plan was followed in awarding the recent

LESS RECEIPTS THAN EXPECTED
Washington State Auditor Makes His
Report for December.
OLYMPIA, Wash., Jan. C (Special.)
The State Auditor's financial report for
the' month of December "gives the receipts
to the general fund at $125,570.50 and ex
penditures 5152.43S.77. December has been
counted on as one of tne months where
heavy payments of taxes would offset the
deficiencies of previous months.
The payment from this source was but
little more than $52,000 and Is an indica
tion that the number of taxpayers who
waited until November to bay the second
half of their year's taxes was not large.
It also indicates that the deficiencies in
the general fund will continue from
month to month until the large payments
of 1905 taxes are received in May. The
principal receipts came from the follow
ing sources: State taxes paid by the sev
eral counties. $52.25S.SG: tide lands sales.
$26,554.36; liquor licenses, $37,417.76: inher
itance taxes. $2742.10; Secretary of State's
The expenditures for the month are di
vided as -follows: State institutions and
schools. $123,637.32; payroll of state offices,
The general fund shows an overdraft on
' January 1 of $50,597.80, an increase of $27.
000 In the one month.
The expenditures from special funds
were $32,076.89 and receipts $170,860.23.
The receipts were principally to the
current and permanent school funds.
COIIVALLIS TO COLLECT TAXES
Carelessness of City Authorities De-
clared lo Be Xo Bar.
- CORVALLIS, Or., Jan- 6. (Special.)
The Corvallia city .government has
not abaaae, the - pa f eel lading
taxes thle year, published reports to
the contrary notwithstanding:. The
City. Council meets In regular seseion
Monday night, and ajl that, time will
make the usual rates of levy. An ad
journed term of the Commissioners
Court Is set for "Weanesday next, and
it is- understood that It in arranged to
accept the city levy to be fixed by Mon
day night's Council meeting.
It Is a fact that tho city authorities
forgot to make the levy and report
the same to the County Clerk "on or
before January l," as by law required,,
but an opinion from the Attorney-General,
ha8tllV made, advises that the
fact of reporting: the levy Is not' "Ju
risdictional." and that the proceeding
would be legal if the levy be reported
to the County Clerk In time for the
extensions to be made. It Is the pur
pose of the city authorities to act on
this advice, and to proceed as usual
with the collectiqn of taxes.
The city tax aggregates .annually
about $5300, including the street levy
that is usually 2 mills. The levy for
general purposes Is usually 5 mills.
With the town dry and no income
from saloon licenses, the only reve
nue outside of taxes Is a few hundred
dollars in dray, hawkers' and other
smaller licenses and rentals from cer
tain city property.

In the basement of a the public' II
'brary thU afternoon Everett G. Griggs,
vice-president of the St. Paul & Tacoma
Lumber Company, slapped D. J. Wil
liams, assistant librarian, in the face,
because the latter would not deny his
published statements made at the mass
meeting in the Presbyterian Church
Wednesday night that Griggs father
was a taxdodger.
Griggs first called Williams a liar
and then slapped "him. He started for
Williams again, when a reporter. the J

arm and told him that was not the
place for a fight. Williams controlled
his anger and walked away from Mr.

Griggs carried a riding whip in his

amounting to 5110.86S.75, over $22,000 less
