members of the legislature knew
the real effect of the measure.
Wlc n the legislature was called
togdh r in December, 1903, to rec-
tify^he errors in the general assess-

County Assessor Fred Rice, of
Marion county, has been studying
over the language of the exemption
law and has concluded to allow
only $300 exemption on personal
property, though he will probably
seek advice from the Attorney-Gen
eral before making up hie assess
ment roll. He will list property
claimed as exempt in such a way
that he can later allow all house

enthusiastic over the prospect of the
establishment in Baker Citv in the
near future of a packing house. In
fact there is already quite a pack

capital sufficient to put it in first-

ranchers will turnish enough hogs
to keep it busy. This seems to be
the only thing in the way from the
packer’s standpoint, as it is an easy
matter to prepare on the ranch suf

there is a large demand and a small
