expected they wilt be mmplured to

The clerks In the wherlffs office ar
very busy making out deeds to proper
ty bought in for delinquent taxes. The
deeds are being execu'.ed lo the coun
ty so ht sale can be made, as was
provided for by the last legislature.
In all there ar more than 100 de
linquent, and that many deed will
have to be made out. The work iwlll

as the collection of taxes Is occupying
considerable of the time of the fherlff

The West Bide correspondent of the
Astorian writes that the recent dam
age to the Jetty waa due to lack of
rol-k to hold the superstructure in po
sition. In all. 42 bents, 672 feet In
length, went out during the storm.
This, with what was carried away by
earlier storms of the present winter,
ha destroyed nearly all J he work done
ii'Mi season, a recurrence of thJs dls
sster Is not probable after the win'
ter la over, for government engineers
have found a upjfly of rock.
The Push Club park committee haa
been granted further time In which to
report to th club whether or not Jt
will be possible to acquire one-half the
property recently bonded by It from C.
W. Rhtvely, Mr. Shlvely, now a reeldent
of Portland, will be consulted. The
roads committee has also been granted
further time to report on the cost of
the Nehalem highway, to date, aa It
will be necessary to make careful re-
-areh of the records on file with
County Clerk Wherlty. The committee
is anxious to have the county sawmill
transferred to the Lewis and Clark to
aslst the people there, a, when
I toad master Frye finishes sawing lum
ber at Kroael'a, no more lumber will
be required for somo months. The
committee believes the sawpilll ought
to be kept In operation In the mean
time. K. HouRhton, of Seaside, Is In town
as a circuit court Juror.. Mr. Hough
ton rs very much Interested In the lo
cal movement for a road to Tillamook,
and expresses confidence that th peo
ple of the adjoining county will do
their share to build the proposed high
way. Mr. Houghton recently went
over the southwestern portion of the
county with Southern Pacific engineers
and found that K was possible to se
cure an excellent grade below Arch
Cape. The Push Club rs now at work
on the matter and tire roads commit
tee haa already placed itself In com
munication with one of the Tillamook
merchants. This gentleman has been
away from home and the committee
has as yet received no reply to Its
totter. The Support of Tillamook
county can be depended upon, how
ever, for the plan of co-operation In
noad-bulhUng originated there.

Before the week is ovr President"
Carnuhan, of the Push Club, will name
a committee to work With a Cham
ber of .Commerce commilte In pub
lishing a handsomely illustrated book
descriptive of Clatsop coutfty, Ap
pointment of the committee was au
thorised at laist night's meeting of the
club. There was considerable discus
sion as to whether or not publip as
sistance should be asked, but It waa
finally decdded to defer action on this
maaitter. Doubtless merchants, manu
facturers and property owners will
be acquainted with the faot that they
can secure copies of the book at a
mall oost, but opinion Is adverse to
any appeal for assistance. The mer
chants and property owners ar par
ticularly Interested in an Increased
population, and If they do not wlh to
assist hi advertising the county the
two commercial bodies wfll do so. It
is the Intention to get out a book that
will be a work of art and something
that will not be of mere temporary
bmflt. The Chamber of Commerce
will meet on Monday night, at which
time President Tallant will be author
ized to name a special commute to
work with the Push Club committee.
At every meeting of th two bodies
numerous requoata for information
ar rewlved from Eastern people, and
th need of some firm-class descrip
tion of local resources Is keenly felt
Of course, the various committee ar
attending to all such requests, but It
Is impossible to send to each Inquirer
all the Information that should be
furnished. It will take fully three
month u Isvue the book. Scenes of
interest will be reproduced. Robert
Wherry, of Elsie, who was at last
night's meeting, said there is a rpruoe
tree 93 feet t inches in circumference
in Gods valley, and appropriately sug
gested that this monster eupposcdly
the largest tree in Clatsop be photo
graphed for publication In the book.
Sheriff Linvllle will commence the
collection of taxes on Monday. It Is
Just possible that the start miv be de
layed a day. The collection this year
will be made In accordance with the
new state law, which provide for
several important changes. The law
was framed as an Inducement to prop
erty owners to promptly settle their
tax accounts, and, while (Ring espec
ially favorable to those who pay
promptly, ts likewise very mere with
the delinquent The property owner
who pays his taxes on or before the
15th of March will be allowed a I
per cent rebate. If the land owner
pay one-half .the amount of hla tax
before April 8. ho will be allowed un
til the first Monday In October to
pay the balance due, and no addition
al costs will be charged against him.
However, if he neglected to settle be
fore the first Monday In October, a
penalty of 10 per cent wn le requir
ed of him, and he will also be charg
ed 12 per cent interest on the amount
of hla taxes from April I (the day fol
lowing Che first Monday in April) to
the time of settlement. The property
owner who pay half his taxes on or
before April 7 of this year and doea
not pay the balance by October 12 will
be considered a del n iJ.Ml so far as
the one-half due la concerned, and the
penalty and Interest will be charged
against hlm Just as If he had neglect
ed to settle In part That feature of
the law which requires a delinquent to
pay 12 per cent Interest has been re'
garded as Irregular v by many land'
owners, as the legal rate of interest
In Oregon Is per cent. The conten
tion waa that the 13 percent charge
constituted usury. However, this opin
ion is erroneous, as the law empowers
the legislature to fix any rate of In
terest It might choose in special acts
of the hind. Taxpayer will find It
to their interest to settle promptly this
year, and already several persons have
paid their taxes. Tire general public
Is requested not to call at the sheriff's
office before next Monday; as arrange
ments for collection have not yet
