a basis of values aggregating $1,
875,000. The state tax is 9.C
mills, and the county tax is 10.4
mills, making a to til of 82 on the
hundred. This is a high figure, and
is partly necessitated by the amount
of criminal business that takes up the
time of the justice and circuit courts.

p. m., that another cast without bot
tom was taken at 10 r. m., and that
the lead was ordered to be cast very
shortly before 11 p. m. at which time
the vessel struck.
Asking all persons present if the
same was correct, an amrmaiive an
swer having been given, they ere
asked if auy one had any further evi
dence to give. A negative answer was
unanimously returned. The court
was then cleared, and after due de
liberation and consideration of the
fasts and circumstances :w detailed in
the evidence given the court finds
that the Calrmmore was an iron
bark, oilicial number 55,053, and
974.79 tons register, 17 vears old,
ell found in every condition, and
well manned when she left
London on this present voyage; that
the vessel after ncaring the Oregon
coast encountered extremely thick and
foggy weather having been prevalent in
this district for some weeks prior to
the loss of the vessel. That the
master's reckoning was about 70 miles
W. N. W. of the true position of the
vessel at noon of the day she was lost.
That the vessel must have passed
within five miles of Tillamook rock
where there is a lighthouse and fog
horn. Said fog horn not being in
operation owing to scarcity of water
which is a well known fact from re
peated complaints and from tho pub
The court is of opinion that every pre
caution has been tiken by the master
in the matter of heaving tho lead and
handling the sails, also, that in the
courts' opinion the master was quite
right in standing on his course under
easy sail until lie obtained reliable
soundings; that the error of his posi
tion as above stated was not oxcessive
considering the five day's thick
weather he had experienced without
being able to take observations.
The court cannot understand the
fact of no bottom being found during
the repeated soundings taken, and af
ter long deliberation has come to the
conclusion that they can only attrib
ute this to tho fact that the bottom
must have been of sueh a nature as
not to adhere to tho arming of the
lead, and also that there must have
been a very strong current running
which has also contributed to wash
off any deposit that may have been on
the arming: also that tho current
muBt have been strong enough to ma
terially alter the position of the ves
sel, and so interfere with the sound
ing line. The court is of tho opinion
that every exertion was used by tho
master after stranding, both to help.
the vessel off and to aavo life. Tho
court has much pleasure m returning
his certificate to Capt. Fulton Gibb,
and exonerating him from all blame
in this matter." Tho mates' certifi
cates were also returned to them, the
report sigued by tho court, and the
papers in the case forwarded to tho
