Mm. Harriet Klizabeih Ford, he
loved wife of ex-Sheritf II. P. Ford,
late of tills county, died at their
home at 72!) Jeiferson strw t, Port
land, last Tuesday morning, of heart
disease. The funeral services were
held in the Congregational church
here, last Wednesday, at 10 o'clock a,
m., Rev. Arthur Kisser, pastor, offi
ciating. The remains were brought
from Portland by a special train.
About forty friends from the city
came on the train. 1 tie large auui-
tery of the church was filled by
friends and acquaintances from Hills
boro. Tualatin Chapter, Order List-
era' Star, had charge of the cere
monies, The remains were laid to
rest In Masonic cemetery beside those
of her Infant son, who died soon
after coming to Hillslajro, in 1S8S.
Mrs. Ford was born 30 years ago,
and was the daughter of Benjamin
and Mary Harding. Her father was
killed by the Indiana while on a trip
with his pack train from The Dalles
to Canyon City, Oraut county. This
was in 1803, the same year that Mrs.
Ford was born. Her mother, Mary
Hedges Harding, lived till little Hat-
tie waa three years old, when she
died. The child then went to her
Grandfather Hedges, where washer
home till she met and married II. P.
Ford In 1881. A neighbor who
knew her tells how lovable she was,
and with what resct and esteem
she was treated. In after life none
of these admirable traits of c haracter
were lost. She was a princess among
women. In her home she cheer
full V accepted the place that seemed
to he hers. While yet her husband
was a toiler and their means limited,
she complained not; when fortune
smiled ami the income was literal,
she wa the same dignified and mod
est woman as at first. In January,
l'J(H), she made a public profession of
Christianity and hivamc a meinlM-r
of one of the Presbyterian churches
of Portland. Her Christian life waa
without flaws mid she has entered
that larger life which is the privilege
Seventeen years ago the deceased
had an attack of muscular rheuma
tism. . From this she lievir entirely
recovered. Her heart was elicited,
so that fir seventeen years she has
iMs-n an invalid. On Thursday ot
last week, when Dr. fleisy was hur-
aiedly called, he found the valves of
the heart imperfectly s'rforming
their functions. He told Mr. Ford
that (die might Im kept alive till Iter
family was gathered to her bedside,
though be could not certainly pr m.
i-e that much. To Mr. and Mrs,
Ford fair children were boro. The
eldist and youngest, both sons, died
in infancy. The other two, Belva

father survive. Mrs Ford's brother,

order of business and moved, to
amend by changing the order so that
the selection of twelve dulegates to
the congressional convention, twelve
delegates to the state convention and
nomination of three representatives
come before the nomination for
county judge, and that the order
thereafter reported be followed, Tht
motion was seconded by Mr. Huston.
The motion to amend the report was
then adopted without division. The
amended report of the committee
was then adopted.

burgh, E B Tongue, Dr W D Wood,
G W Marsh, A T Flint and Abl
strom to be tellers.

The citizens of Tigard ville and
vicinity are Installing a local tele,
phone system. At present there are
twenty subscribers, not only house
holders and business concerns in the
village but farm houses for four or
five miles around. The plan of organi
sation ia to string wire at their own
expense and own the phones. No
reut for use of instruments is collect
ed. The Company may be consider
ed Independent and although not
now planned may in time extend
wires to Hillsboro and to Portland.
The Pacific States line has been
heretofore quite arbitrary about con
necting with or receiving business
from private liuea but a strong in
dependent Company has entered
Portland whose management seems
to be Iila?ral. If the Scholia and
Farmington Ktiplu adopt the Inde
pendent system and Install a neigh
borlioiHj line, it will be easy and
cheap to get Hiilslsiro. When here,
Portland can lie reached as well as
much country In the county, indeed
more than by the Pacific States
Company. The cost to a subscriber
of the Tlgardville exchange ranges
from $15.00 to $20.00, defending up
on the length of wire .hat has to be
strung. But then, after the first In
stallation, expense ceases. The
Tigardvilie people are to be com
mended for the enterprise displayed.

Ia the scalp bounty law a just one?
From April 1st, 1901 to, and includ
ing March 1902. twelve months,
Waahington county has paid tl7C.n0
for scalps of wild animals at the rate
of 12.00 each, hence, the boys In the
county have killed 88 animals coy
otes and wild cats. Of these, it is
estimated that no more than one
third or less than 30 have been coy
otes. The remainder has bceu cats.
The coyotes prey on cheep and pigs,
while the wild cats catch lamlw,
poultry and the game birds. But
for thoae 88 wild animals, there Is a
tax assessed against the county
amounting to 8341:8 98, or 139.42
each. Some of the counties In the
state pay more than we do. It is
sale to suppose that Multnomah pays
more than 1100 per scalp. True we
get back from the state treasury, one
third of what is paid for scalps and
ope third of $176.00 Is $58.r.G. Inn
county where there are many cats
the profit are considerable. But
the Independent maintaia that the
equitable system Is for each county
to take care of Its wild animals. .

A week or two since mention was
made of the profit that will conic to
the man or Company who wilt build
and iqu'rate a railroad, i-tartirg from
Hillsboro rind lending north two
niili-s beyond Glenco. The mure the
project is studied, the hotter it Hp
iears. Tlio eight miles of road will
not cost to exceed $29,000. By ref
erence to the section III it published
in this lsiie of the Independent, it is
seen that the read ends in section .'!0
T 2 N R 2 W. Just under the dis-charge-piM?s
of a Hume. Trallic
would la constant and profitable.
But there is a better proposition yet.
By extending the roaii live or nix
miles up tiie creek, it will be in the
midst of tliuforest and logs can be
placed on the train to he delivered at
thu mill in Hillsboro. Parties are
ready to build the mill here. The
bi-product of a saw mill, auw dust,
slabs etc., will pay freight charges
from the mountains. Then note
where the Hillsboro-Gleueoe road
crosses the Portlaud-Nehalem road
somewhere near the Tualatin Plains
Presbyterian church, tint wherever
the crossing is, the whole of thu Ne
halem country is tributary to the
HillslHiro mills, for as many logs as
are needed. The S. P. Co. oirers a
rate from Hillsboro the same as the
Portland rate to consumers in Colo
rado, Nevada and Arizona. Thus
Hillsboro becomes a saw mill centre
with cheap fuel for manufacturing
purposes, Any additional power
could lie used for speeding 'lie motor
line between Portland and Forest
Grove. There is n i enterprise in
sight that will do so much toward
building Hillsboro. There is no
reason why all the timber in the
coast range Hhould not l e manufact
ured in this town.
Some time ago a wrestling mutch

not to tip him over, though the con
