A Subscriber at Newport Wishes to
Know About It.
A subscriber at Newport having
read about the $9.05 tax rebated to
Commissioner C. H. Willtams, last
session of the county coiirt, asks to
have some light thrown on the
subject. He writes as follows:
"Newport, Or., Dec. 21, 1896.
Editor Leader: I see in your
last issue in the county court pro
ceedings the following: 'Petition
of C. H. Williams for rebate of
taxes: Petition granted and war
rant ordered drawn for $9.05.'
Now there are several taxpayers in
this place that would like to know
what Mr. Williams got his $9.05
for, and whether there is a chance
for any of the rest of us to get a
small rebate on our taxes also.
as the Dave Williams farm. A
comparison of the assessment with
the Butord farm near, upon which
the improvements are not nearly so
valuable, shows that the Williams
cultivated lands were assessed at
153-33 Per acre and the Buford cul
tivated land at $35.71 per acre. ,
Mr. Williams sat as a memher of
the court when it passed upon and
examined the tax roll, and helped
to certify to the equality of the
assessments therein. It seems to
us that that was the time he should
have discovered that his assessment
was too high.
For Sale.
Since McKinley is elected I have
several fine places for sale cheap.
Some well improved farms. Some
good sheep or goat ranches. If
you want good bargains come and
see M. J. Allphin,
Eddyville, Ore.
For the information of the above
gentleman, and all others that feel
interested, we would Kay Ilia I we
have looked up the records and
proceedings in this "rebate" case
and find them as follows: On

The following file marks were
on the back of the petition:
"C. II. Williams, petition.
Kxamined Dec. 11. 1S96, and
grained. J. O. Stearns,
P. A. Godwin, Commissioner."
The petition was filed, examined
and acted upon by the court at once
and a warrant ordered drawn for
the amount of rebate asked
An examination of the tax
shows that the valuation of culti
vated lands was at the rate of
$53-33 per acre instead of $60 as
alleged in the petition. It also
-.hows that on this class of lands
the state board of equalization made
a reduction of ten per cent,' thus
cutting the valuation of the property
down $130; leaving the valuation
upon which he paid taxes $1170,
instead of $1,300, as alleged in the
petition. The assessor's oflice was
not accessible to us at the present
time, and we could not learn what
value Mr. Williams placed on his
property when he signed his
assessment blank for that year.
The land in question is the quarter
section on the Newport road, known t
merit thereof.
