and will begin within the next month
a two storv brick hotel on the corner
of F and Fifth streets, where tLey

be 63x75 feet and will have 4S rooms.
It will be fitted with all the eon
veniences of a modern bote! and will

The plans, that were prepared by Mr.

Assessor W. H. Fallia has been at
work for some time getting in
readiness for making tho assessment
for 1905, which he will begin on

the preseut ownership books of his

dnring the past year. Before making
his regular assessment of Grants
Pass, Assessor Fallin will go over the
city and asoertaiu tho location aud
values of tho buildings erected during
the past year. To accomplish this
thoroughly, he will go over the city
street by street aud from a porkot
edition of his present ownership book
and a plat of the city that shows the
locatiou and value of all building' in
the city on March 1, of last year, he
will bo ahlo to locate all the new
buildings. As many lots are owned
by uou-rosidouts, the assessment of
which is made iu the assessor's office,
the only way to ascertain if houses
have been built upon tliom is to per
sonally inspect eaeh lot. The first
year Mr. Tallin was In onloe, he
found, when looking up the now
houses, over 50 houses that had been
overlooked by the previous assessor.
In addition to his regular assess
ment work Assessor rallin will be
reqnird to take a census of the
county this year. This work is sup
