the 43 per cent of back pay worked
a serious hardship upon them.
They have been carrying the em

time checks for security and they
think in all fairness that the same
per centage of those should have
been paid as was paid the actual la
borers. Sheriff Landis informs us that
taxes are being paid at a very good
rate, he having received Up to date
something near $4,000. He states
also, that he is receiving many
letters everyday from non-residents
who are not on the roll making en
quiries concerning their taxes, It
is safe to say that the tax roll will
be a more equable affair after Sheriff
Landis gets through with it as he
is doing almost us much assessing
as he is collecting.-

An Elk City correspondent of
the Corvallis Times says: A short
time ago the murderer Burdette
Wolfe passed through this place on
his way up Big lilk. He acted
like a crazy man. A lady who saw
him on the road recognized him as
the Identical man who killed the
young lady in Fast Portland, while
going home from Sunday School.
This lady said she knew him in
Portland. It was a great mistake
that the authorities were not noti
fied so that he could have been or
rested. Social vigilance should
be kept up for such fellows.
The contract between the citizens
ami railroad company has been
duly executed by both parties and a

contract the citizens agree to pay

equal amount of labor on the build

People of Toledo, what do you
intend to do with regards to open
ing up some street heref Do you
intend to progress or go back?
There is no such thing as standing
still. Whether Toledo goes for
ward or not depends upon her own
people. We can't have a town
without streets. How we get
them does not matter so much as to
get them. Who has a plan to
According to their statement
filed with the clerk of the district
court of Benton county the losses
and gains of the various divisions
of the O. P. road from March 6, to
31, I8j3, have been as follows:
Rail division, loss $955.59; river
division, gain $240.79; ocean di
vision, gajn $794.15; making a to
tal net gain for the whole system
of $77.73. This is not much of a
net gain, but we'll bet that it looks
huge to the bondholders alongside
the net losses that have been bob
bing up serenely for so long.
We greatly fear there is going
to trouble ahead between Benton
and Lincoln counties. The action
of some of the officials of Benton
county would sccra to indicate that
much at least. Lincoln county has
no disposition to ask anything in
excess of its right, but unless we
are greatly mistaken the men who
are guiding the destinies of Lincoln
county will accept nothing less,
and have the courage and moral
stamina to stand up manfully for
these rights to the last extremity.
Lincoln county people have noth
ing but friendly feeling for Benton
county, but these feelings must not
be presumed upon in any manner.
The sooner this is thoroughly com
prehended by all parties concerned
the better it will be.
Commissioner Stearns has spent
several days in Corvallis, trying to
make head or tail out of something
in connection with the two counties.
He has been very successful in
part. For instance the county
clerk of Benton county made out
and turned over to the clerk of
Lincoln county what wns certified
to be a correct assessment roll of
property belonging to Lincoln coun
ty. This roll has leen found to
sadly deficient, so much so, that to
say that clerical errors, wer respon
sible for the discrepancies would be
ussertiug something almost incred
ible. Mr. Stearns found that alnnit
$200,000 valuation had been left off
the Lincoln county roll altogether.
A good portion of these were mort
gages on Lincoln county piopeity
which were matters of record and
to overlook them would be wholly
impossible. The delinquent mils
have not yet lceu placed in the
hands of the sheriff of Lincoln
county, so that the collection of
delinquent laxtfs is made impossi
ble. In the matter of the delin
quent railroad tax, Benton county
claims all the tax because she insti
tuted a suit at law for the collec
tion of the same. This mutter was
tried in the district court at Cor
vallis last week and Jmlge Fuller
ton has the matter now under ad
visement. Many othor thiiii;
came ututr his notkii while out
there which will havt to be adjust
ed before the final settlement is
made !etweeu the two counties.
A Hardship Worked.
The division of the county work
ed a hardship upon the residents of
the Alsea valley that ought to be
remedied if possible. It is in this: j
Before the division of the county j
was brought about the people of i
the lower valley had begun the 1
construction of wagon road running
from Waldport to the head of tide, :
where it would connect with 2
road from the upper valley which
extends over into the Willamette
valley at Philomath and also to
Monroe. By a special agreement
with the county court of Bentoa j
county the people were to do all j
the work on the road by volunteer j
work and the county was to build j
two bridges, one at Waldport and j
one across Ivckmaii's slough. The
people went to work on their road
and the bridge at Waldport was
duly constructed, but before they
got far enough along to eatn their
other bridge the county was divid
ed and any understanding as to the
erection of bridges was at an end.
The people now have a partly com
pleted road, with no- assurance of
getting the bridge, which will be
necessary to complete it, as they
do not feel aide to build both road
That a road up and down the
river is a necessity is beyond cavil.
With such a road from the upper
valley to the lower the products of
the whole vallev would seek a mar
ket at the mouth of the river,
whereas now all of the upper val
ley trade is diverted to Monroe or
Philomath. Another big advan
tage would be derived from the
great amount of summer travel by
seaside visitors. Hundreds of per
sons from the Willamette valley
would drive down to Alsea Bay for
their summer outing, making a
market for many of the peoples'
What, if anything, can be done
in the matter by Lincoln county,
we do not know. The situation is
as we have stated it, and it would
seem that in all justice to these
people, somethiug should be done
to assist them in this matter if pos
sible. DU. W. T. ( Itm liKK, 1. I). 8.
