Little Miss Nellie Barnhart was

nice presents. The little girls pres
ent were: Frankie Hout, Winona

People did take kindly to "A
Turkish Bath." There is much in
a name, and the suggestion of any
kind of a bath this sort of weather
meets with a frost. The company
was a capable one,: but " few ven

seemed highly entertained and en
joyed the sport immensely. Now,
had "La Mascotte" been advertised,
for this is really what was played,
the card would have proved a bet
ter drawing one. The players were
competent, the singing acceptable,
and the costuming excellent. In
short, those who attended received
their monny's worth.
The decision that the bicycle tax
law was not eonstitulional may
possibly lead to trouble. There
has already been inquiry at the
clerk's office regarding the proba
bility of the money that was col
lected in this county as a bicycle
tax being refunded. There being
no proyision for such a state of
affairs, the party not having signed
away his right or interest in the
money to the county, he was in
formed that he would have to pro
ceed against the county, as it was
not in the power of the county
clerk to refund anv sum collected
as a bicycle tax. .
Clerk Watters and Deputy Moes
have been quite busy for the past
two weeks working on the tax rolls.
They would have had them ready
to turn over to Sheriff Burnett
within a few days had not the one
mill scalp tax come up and de
layed matters . As it is, they
will now await oihcial notice from
the secretary of state before rush
ing the work. This extra tax of
one mill will necessitate overhaul
ing and adjusting the entire tax
roll. It is roughly estimated that
Benton county will pay about
$2,500 dollars this year for coyote
scalps in Eastern Oregon. It will
take a lot of varmints to be worth

Some Stirring Speeches were Made nttd
Numerous Resolutions Adopted.
At the meeting of citizens held
at the court house Wednesday
evening, the committees appoint
ed to investigate the various mat
ters of legislation effecting the
welfare of the city, now pending
before the legislature, reported
what progress had been made.
Three sets of resolutions were
adopted, as follows:
Whereas, Bills have been in
troduced in the legislature look
ing to a division of the Agricul
tural College, therefore, be it
Resolved, That we are op
posed to- said movement, for the
reason that it would be bad poli
cy to undertake to divide said
college, would be utterly ruinous
to the school and cripple it in its
efforts to benefit the young peo
ple and result in lasting injury to
the best interests of all the people
of the state.
Resolved, That the legisla
ture of the state in 1868-1870
provided a State Agricultural
College to receive the endow
ments of the Morrill Act of 1862,
and the endowments of the
Hatch Act of 1887, and the-Mor
rill Act of 1890, coming to it and
vesting in it by the forces and
language of those acts. There
is no authority given by those
acts, or either of them, to divide
or divert the college tunas, or
any portion of them.
It having come to our knowl
edge that a petition is being cir
culated in the north end of this
county .asking that the legisla
ture to cut off a piece of this
county four miles wide and seven
miles long and attach the same
to Linn county, therefore, be it
Resolved, That as Linn coun
ty is now more than four times as
large as Benton -county, and as
our county has been divided and
cut up until we only have "very
little over the constitutional mini
mum of 400 square miles left, we
emphatically oppose this scheme
to further despoil our territory
and give it to our rich neighbor
who could cut off from their
vast territory an area the size of
Benton county and never miss it.
Whereas, It appears that some
amendments to the city charter
needed in order to give the com
mon council power to aid in
establishing a free ferry at this
point and to provide for the con
struction of later sewers: there
fore, be it
Resolved, That the mayor be
requested to call a speeial meet
ing of the council at an early day
as possible, to consider what
amendments should be made to
the charter to the end that they
may may be made during the
present session of the legislature.
The Eastern Stars.
The order of Eastern Star, of
this city, met Tuesday night in
regular meeting and to entertain
Mrs. Jessie Vert, of Pendleton,
who is Worthy Grand Matron.
Mrs. Vert is on a tour of inspec
tion, and while here witnessed the
manner in which the Stars of
Corvallis did their ritualistic
work. From what has always
been said of the work of the
local Stars in the past, it goes
without saying that she found
everything satisfactory. After
the secret work was over the
evening was devoted to social
conversation and music, vocal
and instrumental. During the
evening, the Ladies' Mandolin
and Guitar Club played a couple
of very nice selections, to the en
joyment of those present. A
delicious banquet was given just
before the close of ', the meeting,
much to the appreciation of all.
Mrs. Vert went from here to
Southern Oregon, where she will
continue, her work as Worthy
Grand Matron.

Bicycle Tax Illegal.
The supreme court ef this state
has ruled that the bieycle tax is
illegal. The decision was hand
ed down by Judge Moore. Four
points are decided. First, the
burden imposed by the act is
held to be a tax rather than a
license. Second, it is decided
that the act is local. Third,
the law is void as contravening
the state constitution. Fourth,
the act Operates to produce a
double assessment of bicycles.
in violation of the state constitu
tion. The Illinois case delaring
unconstitutional the act under
which the Oregon law is modeled
is cited on this point.
After citing several text-writ
ers and adjudged cases the court
says: "It is evident, we think,
from a consideration of the - en
tire act, that it was primarily
designated as a means of raising
revenue, and the burden thus
imposed must be treated as a tax
and sot a license."
