lives were lost. Two horses were
crippled and had to be killed, and
the mail got wet and the passen

strong as to throw one lady, a
teacher, flat n the docks and an
other lady teacher had her hat
blown off with a water agate pin

its wild antics. A. L. Thomas, who '
an authority on storms and tides

ever experienced, and the ha3 soma

The heavy rains of Saturday and
Sunday have been quite disastrous
along Nye creek, washing out Coast
street opposite Byerley'a livery
barn, and taking away a large part
of the Osburn Hotel bulkhead and
flume. It is said that 5J inches of
rain fell in the 24 hours and the
old inhabitants say that they have
never seen the creek so high. The
storm will undoubtedly be a benefit

How Did it Get By?
As ths provisions of the new tax
law are becoming better known
quite m muss is being stirred up.
Taxes are going to be high this
year, and to cap the climax, under
the new system inaugurated by the
new law, instead of being able to
make the payments semi-annually
with a discount for cash, everything
has to be paid at once, without any
discounts, and the penalties for
non-payments are so sere as to
be almost robbery.
The Legislature ssems to have to
pass a freak or an unjust law about
every so often. But looking at (he
matter squarely fromall sides, it is
a wonder how such a measure
Could have passed and become a law
with so little opposition. This is a
bad year for such drastic legisla-
tion and to collect and pile up all j
thu money in the county coffers at
one time, while lots of it cannot
be used for months to come, and
when the publi: needs do not de
mand it, it certainly seems as
strange a freak of legislation as
one could well conceive.
