Solves the Problem.
In the new law, prescribing
the duties of county survyors
m establishing boundary lines,
passed by the last legislature,
there is a provision which offers a
solution for the disputed boun
dary of Benton and Lane.
Section 1 1 of the new law pro
vides that "In any survey affect
ing a county line, the surveyor
who may be called on to make
the survey shall serve notice upon
the county Isurveyor of the ad
joining county and they shall
agree upon a time; and they shall
each serve notice upon the land
owners of their respective coun
ties who are interested in such
survey," "and shall
make such survey in the same
manner as other surveys, and
each surveyor shall file a copy of
the plat and field notes of such
survey in the county surveyor' s
Appeals trom said survey may
be made; provided, that such ap
peal shall be taken to the circuit
court of the county wherever the
proceeding is initiated. The
corners and boundaries so estab
lished and recorded in each coun
ty shall be held to be permanent,
and ehall never be changed.
Since the matter was j&rst
brought to the attention of the
commissioner court, the mem
bers of that body have used their
best endeavors to solve the prob
lem. It was suggested to the
court that the snrveyor general
was the proper person to establish
said boundary line, but it was de
termined that that official was an
employe of the government and
had power only to make govern
ment surveys and this matter was
entirely outside of his jurisdiction.
Judge Woodward finally deter
mined , upon a plan which was
almost directly in line with that
adopted by the legislature. He
wrote to Judge Kincaid, of Lane
county, suggesting that the court
of each county interested appoint
persons to survey, , jointly- a
oundary line between the two
counties; that they place monu
ments upon " the line determined
by them, and that the next legis
lature be asked to designate this
as the permanent boundary line.
This proposal met with the ap
proval of the commissioners of
Lane, county, and the move was
about to be pat into effect, when
copies of the new lawswere re
ceived offering the solution above
described.. ... . . .
Law That Makes His Office One of tbe
Best in the County.
If we interpret the matter
aright; the last legislature passed
an act which transforms the
eonnty surveyor's' office '. from a
position offering little . employ
meat and meager remuneration,
to one affording afflnenfla, influ
ence and plenty t do.
... Under this law the county
snrveyor is entitled to an ; office
ia the county'court he-use. He
shall fit this office np as becomes
his position, and procure the materials-
and requisites instru
ments, etc. ion tarrying into
effect the provisions ef this act,
"and the eennty shall pay for
the same aid all expenses in
curred therein out ot the genet
al land of tie county," and ae
questions asked. He shall re
ceive fees, fer his services the
sum f $5 per day for each and
every day employed ia the per
formanceof his duties, and ten
cents per mile for each mile act
ually traveled ia geiag from the
eeanty seat to aad from the
place of survey. ",- -
The duties enumerated in the
act will increase., materially the
number of ; days' employment
now enjoyed by the snrveyor. He
is authorized to adainister oaths
necessary to the leg al establish
ment of roads aad ether surveys
and to take . evidence te prove
aay point necessary to such sur
vey, y -v,.y.,
Upon the establishment of any shall enter the plat and
field notes upoa the effieial re
cords of the county. He shall
make out a complete description
of all or any part of the real , es
tate f his county, t be - made
out and entered n proper rolls
famished by the clerk. y He
shall - make complete - survevs.
plans, specifications and estimates
for all bridges, Culverts, roads,
ditches or other pnblic works to be
constructed under the authority
of the county court. The court
may employ a civil engineer or
architect to act ia conjunction
with the surveyor. "
For taking the variation of the
magnetic needle i and recording
aad making report of the same,
tor making and recording calcu
lations of areas of land, for at
tendance al regular meetings of
the county court when required
for making plans, specifications,
saperintendingor inspecting pub-
lio work , the surveyor shall re
ceive tbe same fees as allowed
for making surveys, which
fees shall be paid bi-monthly
upon order of the court.
Laid Up For Repairs.
Editor Gazette: As I am
laid np for repairs will try and
give yon a few items. After
leaving Corvallis, I stopped a
few days in Portland. From
there I passed over the Northern
Pacific route to Elma, Wash.,
where I called on the " Hewell
boys. Henry is operating a don
key engine ia a logging camp at
a wage of $3 per day. Frank is,
an assistant on another, engine.
Found them both well. They
stated that they enjoyed their
work; the board was good and
they . were employed under
an excellent foreman. After
spending Sanday and Monday
with them I came ea to this
Aberdeen is a loud tewa aad
has a population of 4,000. ' This
plaee has eighteen saloons and
nine churches. Business he-rises
are abundant and are carrying
heavy stoeks. What interests
me most Is the fact that the
whole town is built on piling,
and at extreme high tides, where
the lots are not filled in, they
have all the watei they -wast.
There are six large sawmills
here and the sawdust from the
mills is Used , for filling in the
streets. It makes a good filling,
and after it has settled they
plank it over With. 3x13 timbers.
In this manner they keep a fine
system of streets.
Hoquftm is about three and a
halt miles from here and there is
a fiae plank walk all the way.
The walk runs throngh a num
ber of fine groves, making it a
perfect "Lovers' Paradise.
This is a great shipping point
and there are from fifteen to
eighteen' ships in .the harbor all !

Or., was very nearly drowned" at
-wibuuuut reccutiy, . says lllv
Boise Statesman. It seems that,
while in in bathiner with two vnnno-
lady friends, they all got beyond
their depth. Mr. Johnson had in
duced the TOUic ladies fn nihe-
yond the rope; and they all three
?ppeu aiaa went unaer. . This
scared the ladies, and they began
scrambling to get iuto shallower
water.'- In some manner Mr. John

attendants at the Natatorium were
active when they saw the trouble,
but knowine that Mr. Johnson conld

As soon as thev had cano-Sf. their

auaence oi ine gentleman ot tbe
party, and attendants instantly
hurried to his rescne. He had
sunk to the bottom of the pool.
After much trouble he was taken
out of the water, and tbe work of
resuscitation hastened. He was
unconscious and witnesses thought
he was dead, it took' some min
utes to restore perfect respiration.
Jiappiiy mere were no serious re

being able to return to his home
shortly after.
Additional Local
The case of Lee Dan vs. City of
Corvallis, which was an appeal
irom tne decision rendered in the
police court of the city a few months
ago, wherein Lee Dan was convicted
and fined $20 fer keeping a vicious
dog, came before Judge . Burnett
Saturday morning and was denied.
The law requires that a fine to
exceed $20 shall be imposed before
an appeal can be ' made, and Lee
Dan's tine was not in excess of $20.
Chief Flett called on Lee Saturday
afternoon, and as that gentleman
preferred to serve his fine out rath
er than pay it, he now languishes
in the city jail.
A few years ago W. E. Yates, of
this city, was retained as attorney
for a gentleman by the name of
Frank Belcher. Mr. Belcher was a
mining man and joined the stam
pede to the Klondike gold fields. He
died in Dawson a short time ago
supposed to have been murdered.
A couple of days ago Attorney
Yates received a letter from S. C.
.Wiutmore, of Jermyn, Pa., enclosing
an inventory of some stock pertain
ing to a Santiam mine, in which
Mr. Belcher was interested. Mr.
Yates is now employed in straight
ening out this matter.
Judge George H, Burnett opened
an adjourned term of cireuit court
Friday afternoon and closed, it at
11 a. m. Saturday, ia place of
Judge Hamilton, who is unable to
be here on account of his wife's
illness. The regular term of the
circuit court should hare opened
yesterday morning, but as Judge
Hamilton cannot preside, and Judge
Burnett is holding court at Tilla
mook this week, Judge Cleland
came up on the West Side train
from Portland, yesterday. He
opened court and adjourned it un
til next Monday, April 16lh.' So
brief was the last adjourned term
that Judge Cleland was enabled to
return to Portland on the same
train that brought him up.
At the regular term next week
