Pendleton, Or., Nov. It. Ae a conse
quence of the flood of last aprlng and
the high water that came over parta of

siderable damage to brldgea and roads,
it Is Inevitable that the tax levy will be
higher next year than this. According
to Assessor C. P. Strain, tha cdunty haa
expended MO.OOO on roads and bridges
since the. May flood, and It will require
at leaat a mills higher levy than last
year. The county tax st present Is te

higher city levy next year, ahould the
charter be changed so aa to permit of
the same. - In .order to meet tha ex
