Boy's 'Cruelty Arouses
Humane Society Wrath
! .1 '
While the world is reading of the
queer turns taken by human. minds
as illustrated by the Loeb and Leo
pold trial in Chicago, several Sa
lem residents are wondering over
the destiny of &n year old boy
here whose actions regarding pets
and animals have brought upon
him the wrath of the humane so
ciety. Mrs. Fandrick, a widow and her
daughter live at 1190 Ferry. They
own a pet cat of which they are
very fonu. The cat recently gave
birth to a litter of kittens and
when Mrs. Fandrick found he
youth in the act of dipping the fe
lines in gasoline with every indi
cation that he intended to touch a
match to the little animals, she
immediately got in touch with the
humane officers. "'!
This act is said to be but a sam
ple of i several others devised by
the youth, who is known to the
humane society as an old offen
der. Recently he captured a bird
and clipped its wings before turn
ing it loose. Just what action will
be taken has not been announced
by the humane society members.

Attorney Has Large Number
of Cases Involving Large
Frank Sever ojf Portland, attor
ney for the inheritance tax dc-r
partment of the state treasury,
has now in his hands litigation
and other forms of settlement in
volving $204,000 in inheritance
taxes which the state hopes to
collect, according to State Trea
surer Myers.
A statement by tho treasurer
shows that on January 1, 1924,
there were 845 cases of uncollectr
d inheritance taxes in the trea
surer's office. !.;
"Of this number," says the
statement, "137 . are old cases
from 1906 to 1920. Tho estimat
ed outstanding tax due is about
$581,000, subject to settlement of
deductions for debts and otheir
provisions of thelaw. There has
been collected since January 1,
1922, $66,000 from old estates
that were practically outlawed.
"The settlement of all inheri
tance taxes involves a legal ques
tion. First there must be deter
mined the appraised value and
ihe amount of deductions due the
estate for debts, and other offsets.
Second the question of residence
must be determined, which is one
of the mogt difficult problems in
the settlement of inheritance tax
es. The law should be amended
in several ways that the collection
could be made in a more . rapid
end satisfactory way. -
"The state of Washington,,
which has a larger population
than Oregon, has only about 200
uncollected estates on its books."
