Total levy Portland city. 18
' Eighteen mill, flat. Is the tex levy
for the city of Portland for the year
1910. By. squeezing the rata for coun-
' 1y purposes down to 1.8 mills, as com'
pared wtth 3 mills last year, the county
commissioners were able to go ' Icrwer
than most people expected, and count-
leu taxpayers are wearing a broad
' smile todsy In consequence.
Not only is the rats lower, but the
sum of money to be garnered In will
be less than last, year, 'despite thf In
crease In the assessed valuation. The
total valuation now stands at $247,287,'
5-'0 and the IS mill levy makes ' the
amount due for all purposes' 14,331,870,
cr 1,06 less than in Jo.
Money How a Hand. V-'
' Thera Is now approximately $300,000
on hand In the county's strong box. The
greater part of this sum was raised
for the new courthouse, but only about
ll.l.ouo has been expended on that ac
count.' It Is estimated that the money
on hand will meet all needs for the
courthouse during the coming . year.
Money will not bs needed for the other
winRB nntil after the taxes of 1111 begin
lo mine In. '.. '"''
The county levy provides for general
running expenses, therefore, and prac
tically nothing else. No provision was
made for the new equnty poor . farm.
The sale of the old poor farm Is tied
up In court, and thera will be time
enough to figure on the new building
- when the payments from the old farm
are received, as the defeated party In
that litigation will have six months In
which to appeal, and the case Is ex
pected to go to the supreme court. It
1 believed that there will be ample
funds, however, to construct the super
intendent's cottage and barn, for which
plans have been prepared, and to pro
ceed with the improvement of the new
farm. t. - - --. :' , -,

The ' advocates of an appropriation
for a road to the Hood River county
line, to meet a road to be constructed
fcy Hood River., did not gain their-point.
Through E. Henry. Wemme they asked
for - 360,000. - Commissioner Llghtner
says this request came In too late.

was 20 mills. The two. mill reduction

In a recent interview In one of the
Seattle papers, the president of Frank
vaterhous & Co, says that no discrim
ination la made in the shipping of lum
ber lor the government to the Philip
pine Islands, but that the difference of
31 in the rates In favor of the sound
is because, this company operates a line
of steamers from that port, which makes
It possible to ship from there at a
cheaper rate than would be possible
from this port, as, they would bs un-,
der the "necessity of either deflecting
one of their boats down here or char
tering another for the purpose.
Mr. Waterhonse also says that he has
had reliable Information for some time
past that the current rates on iumoer
are from $1 to 11.50 cheaper than those
en the sound, and that if that Is the
case Portland has as much of a chance
' Shippers here say that the Water
house company does not own .a line of
steamers and that they simply charter
the Weir steamers when they have car
goes. a.nd that for. the difference In-
the. price of lumber 'hers and on the
sound the company could charter, a
steamer for this port and dispatch the
cargo as cheaply from Portland as from
the sound port, whenever a lower bid
Is made from here. .

Frank Rodman, jointly accused with
Mrs. Haxel Maddux of ths killing of May
Real on th? Linn ton road, is not yst be
yond ths reach of the-arm of the law.
The circuit court sustained Rodman's
demurrer to District Attorney Cam
eron's indictment some time Aso and
sine that time there has been but lit
tle activity in the case, ; ' .
The various witnesses in the case
were taken before the grand Jury and
told their story, but the grand Jury did
not take any action. Now it Is being
wondered what the status of the oass
may be, wether it will ever again be
brought up for consideration, or al
lowed to lag and drop. '
Judge Cameron says he has his eye
on the subject and Intends to keep it
thera It Is still wlthtn his power to
file an amended Indictment with the
court and bring Rodman to trial on'
that Instrument, or submit ths whole
question to the grand Jury, and bring
In a new indictment. Mr. Cameron says
he does not know 'which course -will
be' taken, but that there Is no doubt
about a trial of Rodman.
It Is said that thera are some three
or four additional people to whom Mra
Maddux has told the story of her wild
ride with Rodman, which Is said to have
resulted In the killing of Mra Real.'
If these witnesses can be brought into
court. It is believed that their testi
monv. which Js entirely corroborative
of that of Mies Ethel Noss, to whom
Mra Maddux told her story, will clinch
the case of the state against Mra Jwaa
dux and Rodman.

the protracted cold - weather of the

normal consumption of . fuel In the i
public school buildings of the city, but
there will be no shortage and not the
remotest possibility that any of the
schools will have to close. School Clerk
R. H. Thomas went on a tour of in
spection yesterday, and wherever an un
usual depletion in the wood and coal
supplies was noted a memorandum was
made and more fuel ordered. The school

That under tha rule established by

wouia oa estoppea rrom claiming Morn-
as a publlo highway, and that tha line
of ths proposed extension - never has .
been legally opened, is tha opinion of
City Attorney Kavanaugh as expressed :
In a letter to City Auditor Bar bur.
Tha opinion, ' which is given at tha
request of tha street committee, also '
recommends tha revision and redistri
bution Of the nreaent aaftnamantfl of.
'benefits and damages on a more equit
able basis. .. , -.- . -(
"AppeaU will certainly ba taken,'
says Mr. Kavanaugh. "and it la essen
tial in these proceedings to formulate :
an assessment of benefits and damages
that will be sustained on appeal. I
would respectfully . urge tha committee '
to carefully consider tha award, pf ben-"
eflts and damages as shown lln tha

tha city In 1833 In regard to the ex-
tension Of Morrison street at that time "
from tha east Una of the Lownsdala do
nation land claim to tha intersection of
the county road.' near tha residence of.
Amos N. King, Mr. Kavanaugh found
that on Juno 18, 1883, a resolution was
adopted directing the city engineer to .
survey and report the proposed exten
sion at that time, Viewers. were ap
pointed and their report waa adopted,.
Morrison street waa opened from tha
Lownsdala donation land claim to tha
west lino of Fourteenth. . street now
Chapman street , (
In 1888 a petition of prominent cltl-
cens and property owners waa filed.
praying for ths extension of Morrison
street - to tne residence of - Amos N.
King. Tha city engineer was ordered to
survey and report and viewers were
appointed, but after their reports had
been filed, it appears that nothing def
inite was done.- ..
In tha meantlma tha Exposition build-
Una of tha proposed extension. . A pe
tition waa filed asking that tha build
ing ba removed as a publlo nuisance
The council considered the petition but
declined to1 remove tha building. . " " '

According to ' Mr. Kavanaugh,' the
original ' proceeding - were - instituted
and concluded more than 40 years ago.
Thera has never. keen a physical open
ing of tha extension and It has never
been need as a publlo highway. Tha
owners of the land have never dedicated
It for street purposes and no official
map or plat of the, city ever showed
Morrison street open west of tha east
line of tha King donation land claim.
and that consequently any innocent pur
chaser consulting the records would re
ceive no notice of tha extension. Large '
