The tax levy for tho coming yar
wis set at 18 mills at tho rcRiilar
meeting of tho council Inst evening.
Tho totul Ib mnilo up of throe ItcmH,
ono milt for tho llbrnry, Hoven mills
for flower IioihU Intercut, and 10
mills for Bcncnil purposes. The levy
.for the current year wan 1G mills
-on a valuation of J4C1.G84. The
valuation for 191C. on which tho

In wetting tho lvy at 18 mills,
the council trimmed seven mills from
tho tax proposed In tho figures pre
pared by tho Ways and Means com
mittee, published In The IJullctln
In November. Tim reduction comes
wholly on tho lovy for gonornl pur
poses, Jtho library nnd sower fund
mlllagi'R remaining unchanged.
Only two tnxpaycrs attended tho
meeting to express their views on
tho proposed lovy. Of these, V. A.
Forbes, when nslteil for Ills opinion
wild that ho though tho HC mills
proposed should not bo levied.
"With tho school district lovy at
J 7 mills, and tho county promising
Ho bo 1!7 or 28 mills," Bald Mr.
Km bos, "If you place tho city tux
nt 2G mills, you will got a total of
70 mills or more, which means a
7 per cent tax, or bettor. Now this
may bo needed to run our affairs,
but It Is Hiiro to scaro nway tho In
vestor who comes hero looking for
it business opnnlng, In spllo of tho
fact that our valuations aro low."
Following tho budget discussion,

When Gcorgo Dalton started to
handlo his attorney, A. J. Moore,
roughly Tuesday ovenlug, by using
abusive language, llttlo did ho think
that ho would not only ho tho worse
off for getting up Mr. Moore's Ire,
hut also that ho would have to sorvo
305 days In the county Jail.
Dalton will not serve one yenr In
tho county Jail for nssaultlng Mr.
Moore, but lie will find tho taking
of Levi Ituthruff's watch rather ex
pensive. It appears that on Tuesday even
ing, Dalton and Mr. Moore. Ills at
torney, who. has boon dofeiidlug "him
In former suits, had some words.
Dalton was under the Influence of
liquor, and his language was any
thing but pleasing to Mr. Mooro.
While tho men wero scuffling, a
watch dropped from Pulton's pocket.
.Shortly before the altercation, I.ovl
iluthiuff complained to the city au
thorities that ho had lost his watch
nnd that ho presumed It had been
stolen. Uuthruff gavo marks of Iden
tification. When Frank Kulp, night
policeman, picked up the wutch which
dropped from Palton s pocket, ho no
ticed tho mnrks on It, given by Ilullt-
ruff. Palton was arrested, tried bo-
fine .ludgo J. A. Hastes, pleaded
guilty and was soiitenceil to 3C5 days
In tho county Jail.
Palton, with sovernl others, was
formerly tried boforo City Itecorder
II. C. Kills on n gambling and per
jury chnrgo. Tho cuso ns dis
Mr. Mooro suffered a badly sprain
ed .innd In tho affair.
Tho state was represented by Pop-
uty District Attorney Cbas. W. Era
kluc, and Palton, by F. S. Hale.
Hajs Heiiil Has- Pone Wonder In
It Is llttlo wonder that the enter
prising community of Ilend tt tinted
to bo cut off from Crook county mid
become a separato county. They
evidently want progress and dislike
mossbacklsm. In looking ovor tho
official election returns, It will bo
noticed thnt thu three precincts
comprising l'rlnovllle, tho old linmo-
stead of the first mossbiick In East
ern Oregon, defeated tho I'ondlcton
Normal School bill by a votftgot three
to one. Tho sumo vote carried tho
tax limitation amendment, How
different In Ilend, where a town has
grown to he a city In a year. Thero
progress marks tho way to empire,
and with n belief that Normal schools
produce brains that build cities and
empires, they return a majority for
a higher education. However, Ilend
Iiiih done in five years what l'rluo
vlllo has lieu attempting to do for
forty she hits built n city and filled
It with push and energy; with homes
and mills and stores, mid surround
ed them with farms, and tho end Is
not yet. A comparison of tho two
towns will tell wlmro the vote would
he on any public enterprise.--Crescent
