TO READJUST LINE
More Taxable Property to He drought
Into llcnil District.
On the 4th day of next month
the District Houudary Hoard will
act opon a ctitlou for changing
the boundary line between the
Itend and the I.ava school districts
o as to run ni follows:
Ileglnulng at the southeast corner
of the Bend district, thence south
on the cast line of range 13 cast 10
the south line of township so
south; thence west 15 miles; thence
north 9 miles and thence west to
the west line of Crook county.
This wilt add to the Iiend dis
trict about 537,000 of taxable
Kopcrly, on last year's vuluatioti,
leaving about 200,000 in the Lava
district. The south line of the
Bend district is now near Wet
weather spring. This throws a
fine body of timber into the Lava
district where there are only half a
dozen school children. Therefore
that district literally has "money
to burn" while the Hcnd district,
employing nine teachers and run
ning a full high school, is deprived
of the revenue that should logically
come here. The proposed readjust
ment will still leave the Lava dis
trict with a larger taxublc valua
tion than that of Madras, which
was last year $91,158, or Kedmoud,

RECOMMEND 10 MILLS
Such Is Hie Need of Hcnd School l)ls
I rid -1 lie Detailed Estimate
The School Hoard met at Chair
man Trlplett's store Monday eve
ning, all of the Directors being
present. The bill of the I'uttcrsou
Drug Company for f 17.05 was al
lowed. The Clerk reported unpaid
warrants outstanding from the
school year ol 1909 10 of 1,195 8t,
exclusive of interest on them from
date of issue. This deficit was
caused by the exemption from tax
ation of the properties of Deschutes
Irrigation & I'owcr Company.
After full consideration the Hoard
decided that the following be sub
mitted to the voters of the district
us the Hoard's estimate of the ex
pciiscs for the year:
Salaries for year ;f 6,705. 00
Interest on bonds 325 00
Fuel and water 345.00
Deficit, I909-'io 1. 195. 81
interest on dcf;clt 7'-75
Total 9.042 50
The Clerk then rend the Counly
Cletk's certified statement that the
districts taxable property for the
year 1910 was 651,733. He also
stated that the county apportion
ment for this district would beat
the rate of 8 per pupil; with an
enrollment of about 3 00 pupils,
this will give the district about
1600 from that source.
In view of the expected enlarge
ment of the district during 1911, it
was moved and carried that the
Hoard recommend a levy of 10
mills for the year 1910-11. There
will be a meeting of the voters of
the district at Millard Triptctt's

Objection Ilecause there was not
Pull Attendance, but the Mayor
Arjtues the Matter and III
Forces Stand Together.
At an adjourned meeting of the
Common Council held Thursday
evening Alderman Keliey moved
that the action of the Council ou
November 28, in levying a tax of
15 mills on the dollar, be rescinded.

for all of the needs of the city, con
sidering the increased revenue
from the new valuations by the an
sessor. Oneil, Keliey and Triplclt
voted in favor of rescinding the pre
vious action, while Hunter and
Sellers opposed it.
On November 28 when the levy
was first made the vote was a tie,
Keliey, Hunter and Sellers voting
in the affirmative, Oneil, Triplett
and Overturf in the negative.
Mayor Caldwell cast the deciding
vote in favor of the 15-raill levy.
After the council bad rescinded
its former action, Triplett moved,
seconded by Keliey, that the tax
levy for 1910 be to mills. Keliey,
Oneil and Triplett voted in favor of
the action. Sellers and Hunter
The Recorder was instructed to
notify the County Clerk of the levy
and the Council adjourned to Sat
urday night. As there was no
quorum on the last named date the
meeting was postponed until to
night, at which time the returns of
yesterday's election will be can
vassed. J AT THE HOTELS.
