The Judge, it will be recalled, is
a staunch member of the Masonic
order. According to a "History of
Oregon" published in 19 11, Judge
Oosnow's Masonic record vas as
follows: "He is a member of
Laurel lodge. No. If, A. F. & A.
M., of which he is -a past master,
and has served as grand master
of the Grand Lodge of Oregon;
Laurel Chapter, No. 11, R. A. M.,
of which he is a past high priest;
Eugene Council, R. A S. M. at Eu
gene; Ascalon Commandery, No.
14, K. T. of Roseburg, of which
he is a past eminent commander;
Portland Consistory, A. A. S. R.;
Al Kader Temple A. A. O.
N; M. S., at Portland; Roseburg
Chapter, No. 8, O. E. 8., of which
he is a past worthy patron; grand
patron of the Grand Chapter, O.
E. S. "of Oregon."
It is undoubtedly upon this im
posing rock 'f Masonic confidence
that Judge Coshow was able to
secure a somewhat unusual en
dorsement from the Masonic
groups in the northwest. On the
front page of the Masonic Analyst,
published February, 1931, ap
pears a three-column description
of the plans for the Empire Hold
ing company together with a one-
column picture of Judge O. P.
Coshow. The Statesman today
publishes a facsimile of this page:

owners will be ordered to settle
within CO days if they do not wish
to have foreclosure action taken
for the delinquent tax liens. Pay

This action on the 1918 taxes
will be. only the first of a series
of applications for foreclosure on
delinquent lands in succeeding
years, according to Keech. He
tlmates that over 400 pieces of
land eventually would be involved
in the proceedings.
Many of the parcels of land on
which taxes are delinquent, both
in the city and throughout the
county,' are of considerable value,
said Keech, and it is expected in
vestors will take advantage of low
tax sale prices on them.
In moving to clean up these old
delinquencies, the county court
has two objects in mind. One is to
clear up the tax rolls and obtain
the taxes and interest due the
