Eliot F. Sheppard, editor and

und Excess M last Fridty,
E. E.Sharon, city assesor of Pen
dleton, wrote to George E. Cham
berlain, attorney general, for his
views concerning the Mauley -law
to see if Mr. Chamberlain supported
the opinion entertained here that
the assessment of the school district
and city must now be made under
The attorney general kindly re
plies at length to the letter, setting
forth many facts of interest in ex
planation of the new assessment
law. Mr. Chamberlain states that
he is clearly of the opinion that the
new law must now govern assess
ments, lie quotes Section 9 of the
act, which provides that "all laws
providing for assessors in or assess
ments of property by any school
district, incorporated town or city'
and all laws in conflict herewith be
be and the same are hereby repealed.
This repeals any other method of
procedure in direct terms.
The Mauley law, he says, was
filed February aist, 1893, in the
office 0! the secretary of the slate,
;ind while it was not approved by
the governor, on account of the em
ergency clause, it took effect, under
the decision of the supreme court
in the case of Brigs vs Mcliride, 17
Or., 460, from and after its passage.
Another paragraph in Mr. Cham
berlain's letter savs: "It is true
that' section 4 of the law requires
that each school district and incor
porate town and city shall notify
the county clerk of the rate per
cent of the levy made by it on or
before the first day of February,
Hid that it is impossible to comply
with said section because the time
had elapsed when the law took ef
fect. The provisions of section 4
are, it seems to me, directory, and
a failure to comply strictly there
with would not invaliilnte the as
sessment or the levy made thereon;
and the notice required to be given
under said section could be given
at any time before the meeting of
the county board of equalization."
So it appears that Pendleton's
assessment, and that of the school
district, must undoubtedly be made
by the assessor, and that the taxes
can not be collected until those by
the county are gathered by the
sheriff. Those do not become de
linquent until April of 1K94.
The tax roll for iHya now in the
hands of County Clerk Jones foots
up in valuation to $''9,1,213.63'.
1 ne levy Deuig 22 mills makes a
total tax of fi 5,250.80, about $7,otx
of which will go to the funds for
county purposes. Mr. Jones in
forms us that considerable property
owned by parties at Corvallis, and
situated in Lincoln county has been
omitted from the roll, which would
add about $i,o(xmore to the amount
of tax. This will probably be cor
rected upotr the proper demands.
Mr. Jones while in Corvallis last
week, also examined the delinquent
rolls in which Lincoln county is
interested f.'nd states that he esti
mates that Lincoln's orlion of
those taxes, which run back to
1SS3, will amount to about $7,000
outside of the delinquent railroad
taxes. Of course a portion of these
taxes are uncollectable, but with
the effort that we are assured Sher
i(T Lamlis will make, much of them
will be saved to Lincoln county.
1 he collection of these two taxes
will place the county in a very fa v
orable financial attitude, and will
make a light levy of taxes possible
until such a time as the county scjs
fit to erect county buildings.
