In many instances Individual assessments in western Crook county
have increased from 60 to 150 per cent. The increase in tho Bond dis
trict is $107,341. in Redmond $177,017 nnd In Madras $200,231. How-
ever, the l'rineville valuation has decreased $10,270, while districts in the
eastern portion of the county, such as Howard, Ashwood, Reams, Maury,
Buck Crook, Boar Crook, Upper Rye Grass nnd Alkali Flat, all have ex
perienced considerable decrease. A curious froak of tho Inst assessment

cording to the Madras Pioneer, to wait upon tho County Commissioners
to ondeavor to Bccuro a just rebate on our assessments." Whether any
such action will be taken at Bend is an yet uncertain.
