I promistd your reporter at o to 1

soon a the court adjourned, aud sub- j
mit the following: j
The rolls were turned over t the I
sheriU'on Saturday afternoon, l-',-i. l'7, :
and were kept closed until .Match
!. during w hich time. I presume, th.-'
iwoaeputy Mlierilli were employed iu
ve'ifylu the rolis at tt cost to tin
county of about 150.
The total numliernf errors disi-overed
by them was 211, divided in follow;
Eirors iu computing fpe(-ial m-IumiI
taxes j i
Errors in computing pceiul city
Errors In adding cross psgca u
Errois in footings i
Error in school dist not votiing tax.. 1
Ommissioii to extend (list tax 4
Errors in erasing wronir unioiint
school district ol 3
The last three errors were ma le in
changing the levy iu scho.il district No
51 in volume 1 after it was completed,
as it was found that t'le rate extended
would not raise the amount of money
needed, and to correct each page where
any taxpayers tax of said district was
extended requiring four erasures and
corrections for each page one of these
changing the total tax of one taxpayer
but none of them changing the total of
the page. The total number of tax
payers over charged was seven in
amounts ranging' from nine cents to
two dollars and amounting in the ag
gregate to 110.3-j and the change of the
grand total of both volumes was just
20.00. There was not a single error
discovered in the amount of
any individual's slate aud county tax
in either volume.
As few taxpayers realize the inauiii-
tude of the work of making a tax roll
aud extending the tax thereon, I will
say that this year's rolls have a little
over 600 pages of .'10 lines 40 inches
long. It will average about twenty
lines extended on each page or leu
thousand extensions; each line has
from two to five items, consisting of
poll, special city, sH'cial school, state
and county, aud total tax, making
about twenty thousands multiplica
tions, ten thousand additions besides
live fool nigs for each page. This gives
over thirty-two thousand opportunities
for mistakes after leaving out all
stimates for change ordeied to be
made by the state board of ntialia
lion; and there being found bu
twenty-nine errors all told is, I think,
remarkably accurate work.
Further the law dots not require the
herilfto verify this work and it was
purely voluntary on his part. Neither
doc the law require the clerk to make
anv corrections for the sherill aft ir the
rolls have been turned over to him for
Hie tax rolls have not b.-eii out of the
sheriffs nlllco during ollh-e bouts a
single hour since Feb. -7, the correc
tions having all been m t do in consid
erable lesii than one day's tlino outside
I feel sure that the pubJlo will agree
ith me that tbero is no good reason
by the tax rolls should not have
beeu opened at S o'clock March 1st, for
the purpose of receiving taxes, alio
that the delay of ten days and attend
ant expense was tinnecessry .
I should nut have made tins state
ment at all bad It not it lnn put li.l eh
br .adcas' all over the slate that Lane
county's ta rolls eere not in condition
receive taxes on, this bringing on
UK' unjust ami unmerited criticisms

Tho." next place visited was the

200,000 volumes; the next the Nation
al School of Fine Arts. It contains
thousands of master pieces. The school
was lirst opened in 177H; then wo vis
ited the National Museum. This
institution is tilled to ovcrllowing
with relics of Mexico. It contains

Mexico In the time of the Moiitv.umas.

to thoroughly Investigate.
In the afternoon the association was
given a private reception by Presi

upon ground that was once the proper
ty of Cortez, who seems to have had
an eye for valuable real estate. Cortez
built a place hero that remained iu the
possession of his heirs until 1502, when
it was bought by the Crown for the
residence of the Viceroys. The Palace
of today occupies 1111 entire square,
fronting nearly 700 feet 011 the Plaza
Mayor. It Is .occupied by tho l'resl
dent's officer aud his cabinet. The
Hall of the Ambassador is a magnifi

length of the front. It contains por
traits of many of the piesidents, stales
men and soldiers of Mexico, notably
thii'e of Hidalgo. Morelos. Alletide.
Mataiiioras, Juarez and Ilia, ami our
own Immortal Washington. The Sen

the House of Deputies occupies tl o old
