ASSESSORS TO MEET IN BAKER.
Asessors Brown, of Union, Buzan, of
Umatilla, and Jett, of Baker, to
County Assessor George J. Jett, of
Baker county, says tho Democrat, has
arranged with the assessors of Union
and Umatilla counties to meet with
him in Balcer City, Thursday of this
week for the purpose of discussing
matters dealing with the assessment
of property In those counties.
Assessor Brown, of Union, and Bu
zan, of Umatilla, have been heard
from and will be hero the day ap
pointed. For some time past a move
ment has been talked of to interest
the assessors over the state to meet
In convention and discuss such ques
tions as might be of benefit to them.
Thus far the proposition has met with
no response, and tho representatives
of Baker, Union and Umatilla decid
ed to come together for mutual ben
efit. When seen Monday Mr. Jett stated
the object of this meeting was mainly
for the purpose of endeavoring to ar
range a more equitable taxation in
the three counties. This would not
mean the same on all property, but
on things In common.
The year's work of 1902 will begin
the first of the coming month, and
it is desired htat the conference be
held before that time.

Senator Clark, of Montana, who is
on the Indian affairs committee, and
who is thoroughly familiar with the
conditions in the west, Is convinced
that there is a great deal of room for
improvement in the matter of making
leases on Indian lands for grazing or
mining purposes. He also expresses
himself in favor of the thorough in
vestigation of each reservation and
the character of the leases now ex
isting. Indian agents often sacrifice the in
terests of the Indians to their desire
to secure valuable leasing privileges

worth thousands of dollars a year by

Residents of tho Qrando Rondo val-
A Mining Engineer Recommends Vit
H. B. Williams, one of the leading
mining engineers of Eastern Oregon,
who Is connected with tho Virtue
mine, iri an interview with the Baker
City Democrat man, stated that the
solution of the paving of Baker City
streets, rests in the hands of the peo
ple here, who have at their very door
the cheapest and most durable ma
terial. "I, know of streets paved in Eastern
cities with vitrified brick which have
been paved for 20 years and are still
in good condition. There are clays in
Baker county which will make a first
class vitrified brick. The city could
easily and cheaply make its own pav
ing blocks from this material and
could supply the same to Portland,
Seattle, Tacoma and Spokane and
make money on the proposition, be
sides putting its own streets in first
class condition. The right kind of
material to begin with makes a vit
rified brick that is as durable as gran
ite blocks, and forms a better surface
and a surer footing for horses than
any other known pavement."
The same advvice is good for Pen
dleton, there being material at hand
for the manufacture of vitrified brick
with which the two main streets of
Pendleton should be paved.
