iately preceding the civil war tha'
the play "Geoffrey Dale" was staged '
here, and in one of the scenes a hot-,
tie of wine was done up in a wicker '
hamper and stored away to be dfai-V
by a last survivor. The idea was j
quickly taken up by thirty-three news-1
paper men, one from each state of ,
the union. The first meeting was on
February 16, 18G5. Since the brother
hood was founded Mr. Bell has '
never missed one of the meetings. '
Once a year he has eaten and drunk i
and laughed and jested with the slow
ly dwindling ranks of good comrades ,

affair so solemn an occasion that he !
will order no supper but will confine
himself to drinking to the memories

Proposition is to Increase ti e

Furnish Most of the Increase
ed From $6,000,000 to $10,000,000.
A proposition has boon submitted
by. some of the members of the Com
mercial Association that the assps
nient this year be raised from $6,000,
to $10,000,000. the increase to bo most
ly in the higher valuation of the rail
toad and telephone lines that run
through the county. Assessor Bnnn
is understood to favor the plan, and It
Is expected that soon the association
will be represented at a meeting at
which the assessor and County Judge
Hartinan are to be invited to bo pros-,
( nt The basis of the proposed new
assessment is to be tho earning pow
ei of the properties of the railroad
and telephone companies. At this
time, the railroads are nssessed upon
a $1,000,000 valuation in Umatilla
Total Assessment From $6,-
-Rail and Telephone Linos to
comity. The piopostttan Is to lneiwns
this to tometltlns Hkt $1,000,000, or at
the rate of $20,000 por mllo. This, it
is claimed, is ouo-fourth ot tho amount
ixr mile upon which the O. H. & N.
company earns a good mte of tntnrMt
As a part of the tentative scIkmus
of assessment, the annual lav into
would bo about 20 mills. Instonil or
as nt present. This would yield an
income larger than Is now secured,
and would eimUle the early payment
(.1 the county's indebtedness.
It Is likely that the proposition
will have the backing of many ot the
property owners, some of those who
have submitted the proposition being
themselves owners of lands that ninv
come In for some of the rise In valu
ation on the assessment rolls.
