PIUNBV1LLE, Juno O.Shorlff
Krnnlc Elklns hns Issued tho follow
ing statement explanatory of certain
phases of tax collection:
"As there nro n number of changes
in the now tax law enacted hy tho
1913 Legislature which affect tho
1912 taxes, 1 wish to call the tax
payers' attention to tho following ox
tracts from tho law:
"Taxes legally levied and charged
In any year shall he paid before tho
first day of April following. If the
taxes against any particular parcel
of rcol property, or the toxes on per
sonal property charged against any
Individual, firm, corporation, or as
sociation, arc not paid before the
first day of April, penalties shnll be
charged on such taxes and added to
and collected with tho samo as fol
lows: "1. A penalty of ono per cent on
taxes paid on or after the first day
of April and before tho first day of
May following.
"2. A penalty of two per cent on
all taxes paid on or after tho first
day of May and before tho first day
of Juno following.
"3. A penalty of three per cent
on all taxes paid on or nfter the
first day of Juno and before tho first
day of July following.
"4. A penalty of four per cent on
all taxes paid on or after the first

of August following.
"5. A penalty of five per cent on
PRINEVILLE, June 9. Judge G.
Springer began last week a parolo
system that's got Governor West
beaten to a franle. Had It not been
for the earnest entreaties of County
Physician Edwards, Sheriff Elklns
and Deputy District Attorney Wlrtr
he would havo turned loose on the
community an Insane man with the
promise that he would be good and
no longer carry a gun with which
to get his neighbors.
Sheriff Elklns brought the "bug"
in from the Madras country early In
the week and telegraphed tho asylum
authorities at once, thinking that
there woutd be no hitch In the pro
ceedings relatlvo to his proper and
legal commitment. The law places
this power In the hands of the county
judge and It Is the custom of the
oeunty Judges to depend largely upon
the opinion of a reli&Me phsiclan.
Not so with Springer. He would
not tako Physician Edwards' report
that the man was Insane.
The Judge endeavored to persuade
the "crazy" to be good, but there
was nothing doing. He was firm In
his position and would not give up
his weapon and make the promise
the Judge desired.
So after being urged that the case
was one of a serious naturo that
eould only be lmndled adequately by
the authorities of the Insane asylum
at Pendleton, the Judge committed
the Insane man, but not until he had
shaken bands with him, and It Is
understood, apologized for his offi
cial action.

gon song birds. The Clow letter
Clow's Letter btutca Facts
"Mr. Clydo M. McKav,
"Dend, Ore.
"Dear Sir:
"I am In receipt of your letter and
will say that Sir. G. bprloger, county"
judge, did Instruct mo to put out
poison for the birds and stated that
ho would order other towns to
poison tho birds If It was a success
ful way to dsstroy them.
"I did not poison any birds. Hut
on Juno second, at six p. m., tho
said county Judge did put out
poisoned wheat on the east and wost
approach to the courthouso and on
the. third of June In the morning I
found three wrens and put thorn In
the furnace and burnt them to keen
the oats from getting them. I had
found out that there was a heavy
penalty for poisoning birds and I do
no(-see that they do any damage,
but.on the other band, they do good,
for they catoh tho Insects and
worms on the lawn, and they nro
nice to see around nnywav, I re
main yours truly, (Signed) II. II.'
?P. S. I heard that ho was tel
ling on the btreet that it was killing-.
tho birds. Well, they ore not so
thick jib they were,- but they may
havo changed their feeding ground
"f " Wirt to Btart Action.
In a curt reply from Mr, Springer,
HltiS1??'. 11- lnfQrmeJ, that tjhe.
bjrfls In question, are English 'Spar-j
rows, which the Judge considers a
nuisance; Intimating that It would
nil taxes paid on or nfter tho first
day of August and before tho Unit
dny of September following.
"Provided, that one-half of tho
taxes against any particular parcel
of real property, or tho tnxc$ on per
sonal property charged against any
individual, firm, corporation, or as-
Boclatlou may ho paid before the said
first day of April, In which event the
penalties specified In this section
shall apply to and be collected with
the remaining one-half of such taxes,
to Xhs paid prior to tho said first day
of September following. All taxes
remaining unpaid an tho said first
day of September shnll become de
linquent. Upon all taxes so delin
quent there shall be charged and col
lected n penalty of 10 per cent and
Interest at tho rato of 12 per cent
per annum on such taxes from the
day on which they become delinquent
until their payment.
"This means that all second-halt
payments, which undor tho old law,
could Ik paid before the first Monday
In October will, under tho new Inw,
have to bo paid before the first dny
of September, nnd further, that In
terest at tho rato of ono porcent per
month from tho first dny of April
will havo to bo paid on all such
second-halt payments.
"If persons who nro paying tho
second-half of their taxes will tako
notice of tho above and remit tho
correct amount, n great deal of
trouble and delay will be avoided.
"FRANK ELKINS, Sheriff."
"bo a blessing If your department
(the game warden's) would provido
for their destruction."
Mr. McKay Is of tho opinion that
Mr. Clow's statements, which Mr.
Springer does not deny, and seem
ingly cannot deny, nro sufficient
grounds to procure a conviction un
der the very specific provisions of
the law governing tho protection of
birds. Ho Is instructing Deputy
District Attorney Wlllnrd H. Wlrtz,

evidence and to proceed against
County Judge Springer,
Kluley Is At-oUM'd.
When tho mutter was brought to
his attention, State (Inmo Warden
Flnloy replied as follow n:
"Wo have your letter of tho 1st
Inst, nud must say that wo nro great
ly surprised nt the action of Judge
Springer In ordering tho court house
Janitor to set out poison for the pur
pose of destroying tho song birds. It
Is nlmont unhollovnblo that nny sane
person would mnko such an order,
especially In n territory whoro Bong
birds nro not nny more plentiful than
they nro In your territory .
"Section 29 of tho dame Code pro
vides that it shall bo unlawful for
nny person within this State to place
any poisoned wheat, or other grain,
or nny poisoned substance, on which
nny of tho gnmo birds or uon-gnmo
birds will feed, anywhere In tho
Stnto of Oregon, for the purposo of
poisoning such wild birds protected
by Inw
"Wo shall wrlto Sir. Clydo McKay,
our deputy at Ilcud, to mnko n thor
ough Investigation of this mntter and
If he finds that any ono acting under
Instructions from Judge Springer, or
any other person, places poison for
nny such puritoso, we shall file com
plaints not only against tho person
putting out tho poison but also
against tho person giving such In
structions. "Wo believe that If you woro to
give publicity through tho columns
of your paper regarding such nu or
der It would bring on such a storm
of protest as would causo Judo
Springer to feel very smnll, In en so
such an order hns been made by
(Crook County Journal.)
Tho sheriff's office has collected
I2S6.992.72 In taxes this year. There
has been turned over to the treasurer
$255,747.28. Tho sheriff had cash
on hand Juno 2, $1240.72. In handl
ing this large sum of money tho
sheriff's office was "long" ono dollar
and some odd cents, due, nccordlng
to Head Deputy Van Allen, to errors
in Interest chnrges. This record will
be hard to beat.
Tho county Is paying warrants as
fast as presented nnd tax money Is
coming In freely. Tho county fi
nancially Is In good shape.
