Supreme Court Decision Has De
prived Clatsop County of
WORK STOPPED ON BIG ROAD
No Further Dulldhiff on Xehalem
IltttliwayI(K).'i Tux Roll
Will Not lie Copied
The county court met In regular ses
sion yesterday and Issued Instructions
to Clerk Clinton to cease the work of
copying the 1(02 tax roll. This order was
made because of the Intimation of
Oovernor Chamberlain that he would
not call an extra session of the legis
lature for the purpose of remedying the
deficient tux law just knocked out by
the sum-erne court of the state. Clerk
Clinton's deputies had been engaged In
the work of copying the 1(03 roll pre
paratory to turning It over to Sheriff
Llnvllle for collection In March.
The court also Issued an order In
ainutinv Roadmastcr rryt to cease
work on the Nehalem road upon com
pletion of the work of rocking that
highway as far as the Walluskl and
repairing the tut holes In that portion
of the road already covered with crush
ed rock. When this work Is finished
work will be stopped until such time

This Instruction Is another of the re
sults of the supreme court decision.
The refuU of the governor to con
vene the legislature In special sesslw
means that Clatsop county, as well as
other Oregon counties will be deprived
of an entire year's tuxes. As has been
previously stated, tax collections In
Oregon have been one year behind, and
It was Intended by the law recently
declared Invalid to so adjust matters
that the counties could catch up. The
Intention was to prepare the 1903 roll
for collection In February or March,
and then to prepare the 1(04 roll for
collection In OcDber of next year. The
decision of the supreme court and the
determination of the governor mean
thnt there will be no levy on the 19(3
roll, and that no collection will be made
until October, when the 1904 roll will
While the county court had not made
a levy for 1(0. It Is estimated that the
total amount of taxes which the county
loses In consequence of the legal en
tanglement Is about 1180,000. The
amount of the 1902 roll, recently col
lected, was 3135,000. but the assessed
valuation of property was Increased
about 60 per cent on the 1(03 roll. The
Increased valuations would probably
have resulted In a reduced assessment,
nd the estimate of 1180,000 Is believed
to be reasonable.
The city likewise loses one year
taxes, but, as Mayor Suprenant an
nounced yesterday In The Astorlan,
there are ample funds on hand to can

The socialists of Astoria met last
night, re-organlxed the local branch,
which had permitted Its charter to ex
plre, and nominated a rew candidates
for city office. The meeting was held
at old Liberty hall, which has been
converted -into 'the finest convention
place in the city. The meeting1 was
called to order by Charles C. C. Rosen
berg, who was elected temporary chair-
man. J. F. Welch was elected tempor
ary secretary and Thomas Bush tem
porary financial secretary.
Mr. Welch made a brief address to
the 15 delegates present and told them
that their condition was due at all times
to their votes. If they expected some
thing better in life' than they were now
getting, they would have to vote prop
erly to bring about the desired change.
The salvation of the masses rested
with socialism, the speaker said, and
the principles enunciated by the social
ist party wre the only ones to which
the masses could turn for relief; they
Insure to workmen the full product of
their labor. Mr. Welch closed his ad
dress with an appeal to voters to sign
the membership roll.
The nomination of a city ticket for
the December election was then pro
ceed with. J. F. Welch was unani
mously chosen for mayor and accepted
the nomination. The otfee of police
commissioner was offered to every man
present, but all declined. All the other
offices were left vacant for the cam
pargn committee to fill, with the ex
ceptton of councilman In ,the Third
ward, the voters of which selected John
Chairman Rosenberg was authorized
to name a committee of Ave members
to conduct the campaign, on motion of
D. T. Qerdee, who was the socialist
candidate for congress in the last state
election. The committee will be nam
ed later. The offices to be filled are
police commissioner, treasurer, ponce
judge, surveyor, street superintendent,

This was the sense expressed at the
mass meeting held yesterday afternoon
at the Chamber of Commerce and pre-
slded over by Mayor Suprenant. There
was a large attendance of represents
tlve cltlxens and a number expressed
their views on the subject. The line
nro3os?d met with no strong objee
tton but there to a feeling that were It
drawn further north the result would
prove more beneficial to the city in gen
f ral and certain institutions in particu
lar that propose to do a larfee export
business, and whose interests aepena
chiefly with good depth of water. The
meeting proved altogether harmonious
snd while Major Langfltt did not pre
tend to give definite replies to all ques
tions asked relative to dredging effects
and the lasting good to be den(d from
the proposed extension, Ms
words, nevertheless, had their effect
and tie made it plain that the opinions
expressed and the suggestions made
would have their weight In the flnal de
cision of the government.
A chart prepared by Major Langfltt
was shown to the gentlemen present
and this elicited the principal discus
sion. The chart suirtrested a harbor
line 200 feet north of the present one,
but this appeared to be held in gener
al disfavor the evident wish being that
th line be established riot less than
150 feet beyond the one suggested.

Major Langfltt and Captain Sanford
upon their arrival yesterday noon from
Portland, went directly to the lower
harbor and boarded the big dredge
Chinook. The Inspection made of the
vessel was not Intended to be a final
one, but enough was seen to show that
with little Dreparation the work of
deepening the channel may be befcun.

Boniomnt will be removed from, the
deck, after which a trial will be made.
This will take place In the vicinity of
the snot where the ship-now lies. The
date Is not let but the test will pro
bably not be made until the flrst part
of next week.
With the visiting officials and all
others who have Inspected the Chinook
the opinion Is held that the dredge will
meet all requirements demanded of her
and little preparation will be necessary
before she begins systematic work. A
regular plan has not yet been outlined
for the Chinook to pursue In the pros-
cutlon of her work, the Intention of
Major Langfltt being to confer with
those who have the proposed dredging
