More Property Listed This Year and
Many Changes made In the Valua
tions of Land.
The assessment for Umatilla coun
ty and Pendleton for thn yut- isno
has been completed and the- field dep-
uiros nave turned In their books to
County Assessor George Buzan. It
will bo weeks beforo thn nrt
amount -of the assessment is known,
but It Is said the amount will total
quite a little more than the assess
ment of last year.
Mr. Buzan has. been wnrlHni
since being placed in office to cot
an equal assessment on all property
according to its exact value. Of
COUrSe this Is miltfi a tnafc nnri
sidering the fact that all values have
ueen taKen heretofore at what the
owner saw fit to nlaco unon his nmn-i
erty, it involves more or less care to
get uiings equal. Some values oav
been lowered, where thn ns:rsn.
thought it was placing thn v.
one man's property a lit.ln nh. v
what the property adjoining him wr
vaiuca at, uut in few cases has nv
thing been taken off but almost
everything saw a raise.
Again, the assessing has been gone
at m a more systematic way than
ever befoe. Blanks wero prepared
in advance for every pieco of proper
ty in the county and every man who
had land registered as deeded was
found. The increased assessment on
values will cause a general voice of
approval from almosfr all taxpayers,
and while it will raise some individ
ual taxes a little it will be better for
them In the long run, for the money
paid into the county this way will go
toward paying off the indebtedness
of the county and stop the large in
terests the taxpayers are paying.
The assessment this year was sev
eral weeks later than usual, which
was owine to the nrenarinir of thn
blanks spoken of above and it makes
a little more worK in transferring the
assessment to the rolls, but one sat
isfaction in doing it is in knowing
that every mian owning property got
it assessed. It will be several weeks
before this work is completed in the
office, but several deputies will be
busy at this after the 26th and It is
expected that they will havo it com
ploted by the time for the sitting of
tne equalization board in AukusL
when all errors ore supposed to bo
tcUusted by the board.

The early closing movement is
again being agitated, and tho ques
tion is occupying tho minds of tho
clerks as woll as tho -merchants
Thursday afternoon a committee
from the local Clerks' Union, consist
lng of Mrs. A. M. Clark. J. C. Allen
and W. H. Harrison, waited upon all
tho merchants of tho town and asked
them to sign a potltlon agreeing to
close at 6 o clock. This was signed
by most of the merchants, but a few
refused. The clerks commlttco will
endeavor to get all to sign the agree
ment. If these few who are opposed
to closing, continue to refuso to sign
tho petition, what the outcomo will
be is hard to determine. Tho clorks
think they are working too many
hours and are asking for a chance to
have a little time from behind tho
This is their idea, and while they
ask for tho shorter hours, they are
not attempting anything that will In
tentionally injure tho merchants, as
they contend that just as many goods
will bp sold from 8 o'clock in tho
morning to 6 In the evening as will
if the stores stay open day and night.
A great many of the busntess men
look at the thing in the same light,
and nre anxious to close, but a few
cannot close without loss to them
selves, If some stay open.
