County Cannot Lawfully Affix
Stamps to Instruments
A matter pertaining to the handling
of deeds and other legal Instruments
vlhich may come to a county clerk's
recorder of conveyances with uo
revenue stamp affixed is mentioned In
a Waehluglou dispatch, which says
that the commissioner of Internal
revenue has received a number of
inquiries from reiristera of deeds, olerka
of courts, and others, asking whether
they would be Juslffied In recording
deeds, etc, which are seut to them
uustampi d. They represent that deeds
are otleu received from persons who
cannot conveniently procure stamps,
asking that they be affixed by the
iccorder. The commissioner ana were
In the negative, aud In his reply states
that the grantee or person who makes
or issues the lusliumeut should affix
and cancel the stamp. If he omits to
do so, he Incurs a penalty of not more
than $100. If, however, the omission
Is Inadvertent, he may present the
instrument to the collector within a
year from the date of Issue, pay the
stamp tux. aud present the Instrument
for post stamping. The commissioner
advises that when an unstamped
instrument lor record be received, It be
returned to be stamped, charging for
postage and time occupied In the
correspondence made necessary by tbe
omission of the stamp.
$10,000 Damages and Costs of
TNI SUPNEME COUNT muss LOWEN
The decision of the lower court in
the Smitsoii case has Is-en affirmed by
the Oregon supreme court and by tins
decision Jeunie Hmltaoti receives
$10,000 from the Houtheru Pacific,
together with ihe coata of actlou, for
the loss of both legs in a railroad
accident nearly two years ago.
This oase Is familiar to all Lan
county people. On July 20, 1K97, Miss
Jeuule Smltaou, who was working I i
Ihe hotel al Coburg, took passage on
the Woodburu-Nairou brauch of the
Sauthern Pacific to Hpriugfleld to
visit her parents. The train, which
arrived at Bprlngfleld st 0 o'clock at
night, stopped before reaohlug the
station, and the brakeinaii went with
the girl to ihe oar platform to help her
alight. I'lie trslii started up wltu a
Jerk snd iu thedsrkuees Miss Smitsoii
waa thrown under the car wheels
which psaaed over both her legs,
rendering amputation necessary.
The case was taken up for Miss
Smltaou by Attorneys Thompson cV
Hardy snd H D Norton of this city,
Who carried It through the lower
court, securing s verdict of $10,000 aud
costs for plsinlltt.
Attorneys Kenton and Mulr, for the
compauy, then appealed the case to
the supreme court. The actlou for
damages was tiled September 23, 1807
was tried iu the lower court October
30, 1807; the jury brought In the above
verdict Novembers, 1807; a motion for
a new trial was duuled February 5,
1808; the case was argued iu the
supreme court February 18, 1000, by H
W Thompson aud A C Woodcock,
(who succeeded Attorney Norton) for
Miss Smltson, and by Attorneys
Feulon aud Mulr for the noutheru
Psciflc Company; the decision of the
supreme court was tiled today. The
company has 20 days iu whioh to file a
motion for a reheariug.
This case has been stubbornly con
contested durlug the time It has been
Iu tbe courts, aud the attorneys who
have been successful iu the suit are
deserving of tlie congratulatioi s they
are receiving fur Its termination.
Miss Smitsoii, who has been most
unfortunate by this sad accident,
which rendered her a hliiess cripple
for life, will ue enabled to receive some
cotnforU heretofore denied her.
