'Phillips purchased about 1,000
feet of an old film showing a review
of the United States navy," said Mr.
Dally. "The sub-titles were changed
so as to make the pictures applicable
to the propaganda for which they
were intended. Mr. Phillips also em
ployed a moving picture company to
take 125 feet of new film.
Mr. Newberry posed In various at
titudes In the new film. He went to
a battleship located on dry land in

STATE DOG TAX LAW
CONTROVERSY TO BE
TESTED IN COURTS
Poles Prevent Bolshevik
Troops From Concentrating
London, Feb. 2. The bolshevik
delegates at Dorpat declare that Po
lnnd has abandoned her military prep
arations against Russia, which were
to be followed by simultaneous at
tacks upon Moscow and Petrograd, ac
cording to a Central News dispatch
from Reval, Esthonia, today. Poland
has taken this course, the delegates
say, because Livonia "In accordance
with the peace treaty with soviet" has
withdrawn her promise to place her
army and the harbor of Reval at Po
An injunction suit was filed today to
restrain the county clerk of Marion
county from enforcing the collection
of the state dog tax of one and two
dolars respectively for male and fe
male dogs.' .
The law will be contested in the
courts on the ground of conflicting
with the city laws and the state law
allowing dogs to be placed on the as
sessment rolls as personal property. It
Is also contended the law is unenforci
ble and will cost the counties more
than they get In taxes.
Two features of the law are cited as
unjust and inhuman the giving per
mission 'to any officer to shoot a dog
at sight unless wearing the state li
cense, and the provision that at all
times of the year the dog mnst wear a
muzzle when off the owner's premise
Besides paying the state license ev
ery dog owner will be put to the ex
pense of keeping muzzles, which in hot
weather are the greatest cause of ra
bies. Both the dog assessment law
and the state tax law are in conflict
with city laws and will cause a great
deal of trouble to enforce.
While Judge McCourt held the state
law to be constitutional in a Portland
case, it is stated that circuit courts
generally do not pass on constitutional
matters and If they did a majority of
the circuit Judges at Portland frankly
say the law is unconstitutional.
All the pleadings and arguments in
the Portland case are being brought to
Salem and it Is expected that Portland
counsel for the state humane society
will assist In the trial of the case at
Salem. It will be watched with great
Interest nnd locally will be brought to
trial by John Carson.
