With all due deference-; to the
legal fraternity of Corvallis t,o which
the Times alluded, and to the brain
and intelligence of the editor of the
Corvallis Times, we submit that
there is nothing so occult about the
affairs between the counties of Lin
coln and Benton but what can be
easily understood. That the 1893
taxes and its proportion of Jeliu
quent taxes properly nclonc to
Lincoln county is not denied 1 in
Benton county. But the fact rj
mains that a vast amount of proK.i
ty was omitted from the roll of taxes
turned over to Lincoln county,
And it is a further and more cul
pable fact that the sheriff of Benton
county has received taxes upon
property located in Lincoln county,
and has closed the roll and is sup
posed to have made his settlement
with the treasurer and turned the
monies collected over to him. A
portion of that money was collected
off of Lincoln county property. We
ask the Corvallis papers to state
whether they think this attempt to
usurp Lincoln county's money in
that manner is fair, just, lawful or
honorable? The question of appor
tioning the school money is very
plain. The supeilntendeut of Ben
ton county failed to proceed with
the apportionment according to law,
and even admits that he has grave
doubts of the outcome of the affair
as far as he is concerned but states
that he was coerce! into the action
by the county court of Benton
These are plain propositions and
all efforts to befog them are made
to simply give respectability to the
outrageous attempt to steal a part of
Lincoln county's taxes.
The Memorial exercises held in
ti4 t,.t 'r,..i
ieresting and fitting, fhe day
dawned bright and the people of
Toledo assembled early on the
streets to welcome her expected
visitors. The old soldiers of Toledo
and vicinity were marshaled at thx
station headed by the band totr
the G. A. R, and W, R,C, ofNew
lort. Upon the arrival of the train
the crowd wo marched to the court
house, which had been handsomely
decorated for the occasion, where a
few preliminary ceremonies wert$
held, after which they marched to
the graveyard north of town and
dijeorated the graves ef those;
who are sleeping in that "silent
city," Not only were the graves
of the soldiers dead who were inter,
red there decorated, but the graves
of all were decorated with a few
flowers. After these ceremonies
were completed they returned to
town and adjourned till one o'clock,
After partaking of the excellent
dinner provided lor them at the
Hotel Lincoln the Post, Corps and
all others met at the court house to
complete the program, The pro
gram was rendered in full except
the address which was to have been
given by Mr. Carson, he being un
able to attend. In his place a few
well chosen words were spoken by
Hon, R, A, Bensell. The literary
and musical parts of the program
were of a high character, the recita
tions by the small children being
especially good, The soldiers dec
orating the nameless grave in honor
of their fallen comrades was very
solemn and touching, Th) senti
ment expressed by the represents,
tive of the dead confederacy was
touching In the extreme, The
ceremonies throughout were beau.
tifully performed, and the tribute
of flowers laid upon the grave in
memory of fallen comrades was
very impressive. The ceremonies
were performed by the Post and W,

old soldiers of this place and Ya- .

The Corvallis Times m:m wants
everybody lo'kce'ptquietand not say
a word about affairs between the
two counties, and suggests that if
either county wants legal advice
they can buy a much better article
at a reasonable rate than can. be
given by the local paper. We don't
blame the Times man. When one
pauses to consider that there was
over $200,000 in valuation omitted
from the certified tax roll tumed
over to Lincoln county, and that a
portion of this tax has been already
paid to the sheriffof Benton county,
and that an effort is being made to
defraud the county of Lincoln out
of Its just share of the railroad de
linquent tax, the motive for the .
Times man for wishing everyone to
keep so very still can be seen. But
dear Times, the Lkadkr is not built
that way. Our people wish to
know just how these affairs stand
and we propose to tell them so far
as we have knowledge without
fear or favor, and there was a time
when the , Corvallis Times would
have done the same.
