COUNTY COURT APPROVES
THOSE OF eFgHT FIRMS
Largest Bond Required Was for $17,-
500; Smallest for $2,000 Others In
the Business Have Not Yet Made
Application Work In Progress at
the Poor Farm.
The county court convened yester
day for tho regular monthly term,
and the matter of tho bonds for the
warehouses and mills ns provided by
the new law which went Into effect
the first of tho month was considered.
It proved to be n bono of contention
for n wlillo, but was at last ndjusted
In nn equitable manner. Some of
tho commissioners wanted to put a
bond of double the volume of yearly
business on each warehouse, holding
that since In the fixing of bonds for
administrators they were placed at
twlco the valuation of tho estate It
was proor to put a like bond on a
concern that held In trust tho wheat
of another. Had this been uonc the
bonds of some of tho warehouses
would have footed closo to $1,500,000.
However, the matter was finally fixed
so thnt all of tho men who were in
the business could find money
enough to furnish their bonds, and
the application of a number of them
were looked over and approved and
filed. Tho bonds filed yesterday were
as follows: Puget Sound Warehouse
Company, $15,000; Northwestern
varehouse Company, $1,500; Pacific
Coast Elevator Company, $17,500;
Interior Warehouse Company, $17,
500; David Taylor, $2,500; C. F.
Coicsworthy, $2,000; Pendleton Roller
Mills. $7,500; Kerr, Glfford & Co.,
There are yet a number of tho mills
and warehouses of the county thnt
have not made application for their
licenses, and they will be allowed as
they come in.
Tho court is now engaged in audit
ing the lulls of the last month and
looking over the construction going
on at the poor farm.
Agent of the O. R. & N. Claims It is
Altogether Too High.
Ahio S. Watt, of Portland, the tax
agent of the O. R. & N. Co., was in
the city today, and while here called
on the office of tho county assessor.
In the estimation of the gentleman
the assessment on the property of the
company in thiB city is too high, and
he called to talk the matter over.
He holds that it Is excessive to tax
tho 20 acres comprising the yards of
the company In this city in the same
ratio as the suroundlng property, for
the reason that the land is not hold
in absolute title by the company. Tho
ground upon which the yards and
buildings are situated was, at the
time when tho railroad took posses
sion of It, government reservation
land, and it was given to the com
pany as a grant as long ns they should
maintain the line and the consequent
buildings upon It, but as soon as the
company ceases to operate a railroad
lino over tho property it reverts to
the government and ceases to be the
property of tho railroad company.
For this reason Mr. Watt thinks
that the land should bo scaled In as
sessment valuation. The property in
question Is a tract of 20 acres in the
city upon which the station houses
and yards of the company aro con
structed. It was assessed at $20,000
by the assessor, and this sum is taken
to bo excessive by the company.
It is probablo that the assessment
of tho whole property of tho company
in the county will be taken to tho
board ot equalization by the agents of
the company. They claim that tho
valuation of $12,000 a mile which
was put on tho roadbed is too high,
and will nttempt to have It scaled to
$4,000 by the board. At this time tho
other matter will perhaps como up
for consideration of the adjusting

WHAT IS THE UNDERWOOD TABULATOR
It Is a device forming a part of tho Underwood Typewriter, thnt
marvclously simplifies tho work of mnking out bills, filling in of
blank forms, getting up of statistics, lists of nnmes, In fact, any
form of writing that is arranged In columns.
As tho written page on tho Undorwoou is always In full sight ot
the user, no letter or word being covered up nt nny time, the valuo
of tho tabulator, when applied to the Underwood Typewriter, is ap
parent. This feature alone gives double value to tho Underwood.
No extra charge is mndo for tho tabulator; it Is not an attachment,
but an integral part of the machine. Tho entire operation of tho
tabular mechanism !' controlled by one koy. Eyesight does the
rest. Tho most complicated form can be easily, quickly and accur
ately followed, because you always see what yon are doing.
The Underwood Tabulutor Is solidly framed In tho machine, nnd
does not "rack" the Instrument. It is provided with an automatic
brake, which governs tho movement of the carriage perfectly.
The Underwood "brakes" the Tabulator. : : : : :
