Notice Of Extra Taxes
Notice was received by the county
court yesterday of the extra tax im
posed on Clatsop county by the state
board of equalization at its recent
meeting. The notice simply states
that Clatsop county, under the revis
ion made by the state board, will be
called upon to pay into the state
treasury the sum of $,11,237.50, instead
of $27,030, as first set. This makes
an increase of $4,207 50. lt is prob
able the county court will pay no at
tention to the demand for the extra
money as no way appear for the rais
ing of the money.
Jury Is Discharged
In circuit court yesterday afternoon
Judge McRride discharged the petit
jurors for the remainder of the term.
as there are no more jury trials set.
Only a few more cases are expected
to arise during the rest of this term,
and Judge McBridc stated that he
deemed it probable he would be
through with the work by Friday.
One important matter to arise is the
question of the provision in the city
charter which demands that each
member of the water commission pay
at least $25 in city taxes, and this
question will arise in the two friendly
suits (led last week.

and all conservatives, politely barred.
The Morning Astorian will give the
news, however, though it may be a
little late with it.
Set a Good Example
"Mine Host" Gallagher of the Im
perial restaurant, has set an excellent
example by tearing down the antide
luvian structure from the front of his
handsome eating house, .known as the
'awning". It lets in a flood of sun
light (when the. sun shines), and in
creases the ordinary volumne of light
in the establishment about -60 per
cent when there is no sun shining;
besides adding immensely to the gen
eral appearance of the front. It is
to be hoped the notion will strike in
all along the Commercial street line,
including the office of the Morning
Astorian; as these dismal and inter
fering contrivances were better out
and down, than where they are. The
day is past for such things as perma

party. It was the 15th anniversary
of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs, Eck

spired to accentuate it by pouring in
on them with a generoui lot of dainty

New School Teacher
Charles T. G. Smith has been em
ployed by the school board a a
teacher in the High School, and he Is
expected to arrive in Astoria today.
With the large number of additional
pupil in the High School the em
ployment of another instructor be
came a necessity, and while at this
season of the year it wis not an easy
task to secure a first class teacher,
the board believes in Mr. Smith they
have secured a good a man as could
be desired. He is a graduate of
Amherst College, in Connecticut, has
had a year or more in Vale, is a
graduate of a business course, also,
and has practical experience as an in
structor. He has been in the State
of Washington for a time. Mr. Smith
is a young man,
Mr. Law la Dead
James X. Laws whose serious ill
ness wa noted several tnnci recent
ly, died at his home early Sunday
morning, the primary cause of his
death being Bright'! Disease- In
the death of Mr. Laws Astoria loses
one of its old and very highly re
spected citizens, a man who was liked
by all and beloved by many. He was
only a little over 62 years of age. For
a long time he has not been in good
health and the past month or two
had been in somewhat serious con
dition, and several weeks ago a minor
operation was performed in the hope
of alleviating a part of the difficulty
under which he labored. As a busi
ness man and citizen Mr.'Laws was
known to practically all of the men
and women of the city, and he was
of a cheerful and friendly nature and
of a character that won him many
friends. In 1904 he was elected a
member of the Oregon legislature,
though that was the only public office
that he ever aspired to or held. He
was a member of the Masons, the
Elks and the Eagles, and the funeral
today will be held under the auspices
of the Elks, from the residence at 1
o'clock this afternoon. Interment
will be in Greenwood cemetery. He
is survived by Mrs. Laws and one son
and one daughter, and a brother and
sister residing in Salisbury, Mary
land. Letters From Nushagak
Letters from Nushagak, Alaska,
were received in this city yesterday,
the first mail that has got out since
winter set'in. The various companies
in this city who have interests at
Nushagak all heard from their cor
respondents, and everything is report
ed well. Mail is about a month later
in getting out this Spring than usual
because of the mild weather that has
obtained there, and because of "the
lack of ice the dog teams could not
start out with the mails at the usual
time. The letters says that it has been
very mild winter. The first mails
got in there the early part of Janu
ary, when the people in Nushagak
heard for the 6rst time that Mr. Taft
had been elected to the Presidency.
Otto Larson, storekeeper at Nusha
gak, and brother-in-law of Council
man Belland, has started out for this
country and expects to be in Astoria
by March 16. Dr. Romig is also com
ing south and it is thought likely lie
will come to Astoria sooner or later.
Mrs. Romig and children are remain
ing there. Dr. Romig has been ap
pointed superintendent 'of schools of
the Yukon district, and also a United
States commissioner, whose office is
to take depositions, hear cases , in
bankruptcy, etc- The' letters indicate
that all are well and that nothing out
of the ordinary has occurred in the
olony during the mild winter.-

the basketball game from the girls of
the local High School last night by a
score of 14 to 6. The contest was a
spirited one, especially the latter half,
and was witnessed by a big crowd.
The first half dragged along a bit, for
neither side seemed to be playing
with much vim, but in the second
part both sides started in to win. At
the end of thejirst half the game
stood 4 to 4.
The Albany girli proved to be ex
cellent players. Their team work was
good and they used fine judgment in
handling the ball. For the visitor!

volving jurisdiction over Sand Island,

er, which was decided by the supreme
court of the United States in favor, of
the State of Oregon, was yesterday

ly and dropped the building "down

said to be likely that a substantial,
two-story structure will take its
place. As trustee of the place, E. M.
Cherry, states that if a tenant can be
found a first class substantial build
ing will be erected, and it is probable
there will be little trouble in securing

NEW YORK, March &-Dr. Alex
ander Chessin of Washington Univer
sity, St. Louis, gave a demonstration
of the principle of the Brennan mono
rail car in the physical laboratory at
Columbia University yesterday. The
model car has all the essential fea
tures of the large car, to perfect which
the British government has apropri-
ated $500,000. The two opposed gyro
scopes which give the car its remark
able powers of balance are four in
ches in diameter and are made of
solid steel. .
Whfle the gyroscopes revolved af
ter having been set in motion at an !
initial speed of 3000 revolutions per
minute, Dr. Chessin placed the car
on a copper cable stretched across
the room and although the center of
gravity was three inches above the
point of contact, the car maintained
its balance perfectly. It successfully
balanced more than ten pounds and
did not tip until almost two thirds
of the entire car's weight was "attach
ed to one side. . ' '
It is Mr. Chessin's opinion that the
Brennan car has great commercial
possibilities and he suggests that a
test be made on the New York Sub
