lt E. Taker's Promised Letter.; segment.
It is easy for a man to u-lt half
truth and make broad assertions in
WlucU tit is. uq truth, to. the injury
a iii.tiucier, it is nniKxs.
sible to reply to them in detail, tor
neu you stoop to grasp them there
is notmng in them, and calling
men liars, besides being tht; lan
guage of blackguards, proves noth
ing. So I will make a plain state
ment of the actual facts in the mat
ter of my last assessment in the
county, ami my present work Qii
last owners' maps. Beginning by
saying that all I will say is open to
easy proof, and if any taxpayer jn
the county wants to investigate any
part of it, let him come to the coiuir
TV-sent nrrrr I will cl.t-W-ll.;,! Mmk
1 undertook the assessment in
this county in March lust without a
particle of data of any description
to guide me: 110 map, 110 tax roll,
no recoids Qr assistance whatever,
I was simply turned loose to assess
the county for the first time. It
would be a most extraordinary

had nnule no mistakes, There are
doubtless some names left off the
assessment roll, hut who for a mq
ment supposes that if my intention
was fraud I would begin at home
by leaving such prominent men off
as j, , tjopeianil, whose affidavit
was published with such a flourish
of trumpets the other day? The
facts about him are that I went to
him repeatedly for his assessment,
and failed to get il until too late.
Badlv huudkapped en 1 wit's I
found and assessed at a much lower
rate than heretofore, a gross value
of $1,041,000 worth of property
111 tins county, which is nearly
$500,000 more than was ever assess
ed, and I received hs a total com.
pensation from the county $763.40.
Of this I paid about $200 for clerk

count on wararuts, and you have
about $400 as my total compensa.
tion for the year's work. And this
is all true. If you doubt It come
here and I will prove it to you.
Section 3,762 of Hillta annotated
code, Vol. 2, 1892, reads as follows:
"It shall be the duty of the asses
sor in each county to make out and
retain in his possession q duplicatp
01 nis assessment roll, and shall
make the necessary corrections
therein, so that such duplicate will
correspond with the assessment roll
on file in the office of the county
clerk, and qlso make a plat of the
government survsy, and town plats
within his county, and note there
on the owner ot each tract of land
and of each town lot, and deliver
such duplicate assessment roll and
plats, aiid other documents relating
thereto, to his successor in office. '
By this yqu wjll see that the law
compels me to furnish just what I
am furnishing, a set of last owner's
maps for every township and town-
site in the county, and of course the
law contemplates that the assessor
shall be paid. Now to do this
would cost the county about $1,000
which would have to be paid out of
the county fqqds whether one cent
of additional tax was collected or
not. In the meantime an evil came
to light which, necessitated a reme
dy, in the way of double assess
merits on the roll that came from
Benton county, which cost the
county about $1 tjoQ in the way of
extra state tax, printing and delin
quent rolls, To obviate this en
tirely a thorough system must be
adopted by which to do the work.
To get a complex system required
additional labor, so I waived my
right to compensation under the
law and agreeJ with the county
court to furnish the maps for the
amount they would have to pay the
state as state tax, and which they
would not have to pay, and to wait
for my pay until the tax was col
lected, so that instead of paying the
state they would pay me, and the
county would not be out one cent,
thereby saving the county $i,ooo,
as I have explained above.
In order to do thy work well I
secured the services of one of the
best abstractors In the state, Mr,
Van Winkle. And we are doing

Where is the Cash?

other allegations which he makes
as a defense he alleges that he re

in money, and no more. The re
port of the same gentleman last
June, as given out by the Corvallis
papers contains tho statement that
among the assets were, "Cash at
Corvallis, $13,643.21." "Cash at
Yaquina, $2,581.97." Add these
two items together and it will be
seen that the amount of cash re
ceived at that time according to
the published statement was $15,
227.18, Now it Ins shrunk to the
extent of $3,301.97. The question
naturally arises, w'.iat has become
of this money? or what has caused
the discrepancy in the two state
ments? Both of these statements
were published in the Corvallis
Times, and it behooves either the
editor of the Times to explain the
mistake, or Assignee Bryson to
arise and tell what causes the de
ficiency. It may 1-e all right, but
the figures don't show it, and the
peoples' confidence in the whole

the performance of these duties the

It has been customary for the,
school superintendent to draw
money for school districts from the

as an accomodation. In some cases,
he forged the names of clerks oj

The full amount of his ombezzclt

much more. When last heard of

on the demand of the county courj
