Oregonians is illustrated in the in
crease of registrations with the secre
tary of state from year to year. Regis
trations during tne month of July in
eluded 1851 new cars and 345 machines
registered in previous years but not
licensed for the current -year. This
makes a total of 2196 motor vehicles
registered in the state during- July,
1919, as against 1709 cars in July. 1917.
A statement of the transactions of
'the motor vehicle department of the
secretary of state's office for July,
'1319. follows:
1741 Vehicles Transferred.
Motor vehicles, 2196; motorcycles,
350; dealers in motor vehicles, 18;
chauffeurs, 216; transfers of motor ve
hicles and motorcycles. 1741; duplicate

tering and transfer of motor vehicles
and chauffeurs so far during the year
1919, a total of $362,251. During the
fame period in the year 1918. the total
fees aggregated $439,480. so that for
the year 1919 the fees show an increase
over 1918 of more than $122,000.
Eased upon the registrations from
this time on to the end of the year
during previous years, it is not un
likely that the registrations of motor

tr substantially 17.000 more cars than
tnring the year 1918, when the total
numbered 63.325.
Traffic In TJsed Cars Large.
A feature in connection with the reg
i Sstration of motor vehicles is the large
number of transfers, which undoubt
sdly tends to indicate the traffic in
used cars. luring the month of July,
1918, there were transfers of 1150
motor cars and motorcycles. During
the month of July, 1919, the number of
such transfers was 1741, showing that
the traffic in used cars keeps pace
with the sale of new cars.
From and after August 1 of each
year the license fees for motor vehicle,
motorcycle and chauffeur registrations
are one-half of the regular fee. Dur
ing the months of August and Septem
ber a considerable number of registra
tions are made and licenses issued by
reason of the new models of the vari
ous cars being delivered.

the church at Montesano and at Elm

in Eurooe.

years when Father Quian was absent

existed between the two.
