JOB AHEAD OF COUNTY
ASSESSOR IN 1935.
Particularly Arduous Duties Devolv
Ing Upon Assessor of Umatilla
County Multnomah County Will
Have Forty Deputies Enumera
tion of Statistics Required Is Given
Below In Part.
The comity assessor of this coun
ty, whoover that may be, will have
a busy time of It when elected to
serve the next term. Aside from the
regular work of the office, ho will
have to hake a census of the coun
ty, as provided by the stato law.
Every 10 years the assessors of
the different counties in the stato
are required by law to take "an
enumeration of the Inhabitants and
the Industrial products" of their re
spective counties, the work com
mencing on March 10. The last tlmo
this was done was In 1S93, which
will bring the next census In March,
Umatilla county's assessor will
not have as easy a tlmo as some of
the assessors In the state, for his
work will He over scattered territory
through the mountains and out on
the ranges, where tho people aro
shifting from place to place and con
ditions arc ever changing.
In Multnomah county It Is estimat
ed that the work will require the
srevlces of at least 40 deputies, and

there the property, products and
peoplo are all bunched whoro thoy
can bo easily reached. In Umatilla
county six or eight men will have to
do the work, searching for their data
nmong tho hills and mountains, nnd
sago brush of tho plains.
Tho taking of the census requires
a great deal of work. The assessor
must ascertain tho number of legal
voters In the county; the number of
males who are of age, tho number
under 10 years of age, and tho num
ber between 10 anil 21; tho number
of females who aro of age, tho num
ber under 10 years of age, and tho
number between 10 and 18; tho num
ber of acres under cultivations, tho
number of bushels of wheat, ba'rloy,
oats anil rye raised during tho pre
ceding year, and "similar information
as to tho production of hay, sheep,
hogs, salmon, etc.
When tho assessor has completed
his census ho sends it to tho county
clerk, who makes a copy, nnd then
transmits tho original to the secre
tary of state.

The Renown of
Grocery Excellence r
Is built on a tripod of Quality, Prices and service.
While we do not claim to sell all groceries, at all
times at lower prices than any other store, we do
claim and DO meet all honest competition.
It is a common practice to offer a few items at cost or
less, as a "bait" to attract a customer, and then is the
opportunity to overcharge on other goods. That
practice has never been followed at this store. It is a
common practice to sell groceries of inferior grade for
goods of good quality under pretense they are worth
more money. That is not done here. There are
other kinds of unfair if not dishonest, kinds of com
petition we do not try to meet. But when it is a mat
ter of reliable groceries, honest weight, good service
and fair treatment all round,

GIVE US A TRIAL
Tho committee consisting of
Albert Cohen, Hobort Forstor nnd
K. P. Dodd, appointed by tho Com
mercial association to circulate peti
tions asking for tho change In the
tlmo of tho arrival of the mixed
branch lino train No. 41, on tho O.
H. & N to an hour not later than
1 p. m. to accommodate tho resi
dents of Umatilla county In coming
to Pendleton, their county seat, ho
gan active work this morning.
Two petitions were prepared anil
a largo number of signatures of busi
ness men secured today. Tho mat
ter will bo pushed energetically thb
week, In order that tho monster
petitions may bo presented to Super
intendent J. P. O'llrlen at the ear
liest possible date. Petitions from
Weston and Athena aro expected to
arrlvo every day and Agent E. C.
Smith now holds one from Adams
which will be sent to Mr. O'llrlen as
soon as thoso from Athena and Wes
The Commercial club recognizes
necessity for quick action In this
matter, as It has been brought to
the attention of the business men
of Pendleton, that many citizens of
Umatilla county living along tho
branch lino have been nttracted to
Walla Walla, by tho superior train
facilities of that city.
Residents of 'Athena, Adams, Wes
ton, Milton and Freowntor aro tak
ing an active Interest In tho matter
and It Is believed that a sufllcient
showing will bo mado to the officials
of tho O. R. & N to warrant thorn
in making an Immediate change in
the schedule of tho train.
At the present tlmo this train nr.
rives at 2:35 and owing to tho late
ness of this hour It Is impossible
for people coming to tho county seat
to transact their business before the
departure of No. 42 at 6 p. m.
The O. R. & N lias novcr denied
Pendleton any reasonable request in
the past and the Commercial asso
ciation hopes to sco the fruition
of this effort In a short time.
Fully one-half tho population of
Umatilla county patronizes the
branch lino and If the schedule does
not meet the general needs of tho
community, It demoralizes business.
It Is possible that a regular pus
songer train running between Pen
dleton and Walla Walla, near tho
present schedule of the mixed train,
will be discussed with tho company,
If such an arrangement would bo
more convenient to the company
than to change the tlmo of the
Tho petition to Superintendent
O'llrlen Is as follow:
"To J. P. O'llrlen, superintendent
O. It. & N.:
"Wo, the undersigned rfcsldonts
and business men of tho city of Pen
dleton, In behalf of tho citizens of
Umatilla county residing along the
branch lino of tho O. R. & N., be
tween Pendleton and Walla Walla,
respectfully request that tho tlmo of
the arrival of train No. 41, at Pen
dleton, be changed from 2:35 p, .11.,
to an hour not later than 1 p, m in
order that tho citlzons of the .county,
extensively patronizing this branch
line, may como to Pendleton, their
county seat, nnd principal trading
point nnd transact tholr necessary
huslnesit In tho nfternoon In tlmo
to return homo on No. 42 at 6 p. m.
"Wo respectfully represent that
this branch lino Is patronized by a
largo proportion of tho population of
Umatilla county, and that the pres
ent schedule of train No. 41 Is In
convenient and unsatisfactory and Is
causing many citizens of Umatilla
county to go to Wnlla Walla as a
trading point, owing to the greater
conveniences afforded by tho train
schedules for that city.
"Wo feel that It Is necessary lor
the O. It. & N. to chango a main
lino freight train schedulo to provldo
better facilities for residents of
Umatilla county in reaching tholr
county seat, that tho past records
