taxpayers of Josephine
there be any, will hare a
chance to air their grievances before
the county board of equalization.
This body consists of Judge Stephen
Jewell. Assessor W. H. Fallin and
Clerk T. 8. Cheshire. As Mr. Fallin
has endeavored to do his duty by all
parties concerned. It is saore than

makes that corporation pay ona-fourth
of the entire amount of taxes raised
in Josephine county. But, inasmuch
as other counties to the north have
placed the figures at 130,000 per mils,
they may not bother with this oouniy.
Asaessor Fallin hopes that the other
counties will make their fignrea stick"
and then, next year7"this county jwill
make a similar raise As it is now,
he does u7t want the funds to be tied
np with an injunction suit, thus de-
nriviug the county of the use of the

Changes in School L&wf.
County Snperintendeut of schools,
Lincoln Savage is just in receint of
a commuuication from State Super
intent J. H. Ackerman, iu which
some changes made in the law re
aardiuir the applications for state
certificates or diplomas are men
tinned. For instance, in making ap
plication for state certificates the
applicant must take examination in
three succussive examinations on IV
subjoots sp cilied iu subdivision fi,
section 0, School Laws of Oregon, oue
ot which is English literature. Tlieu
in trying for the state diploma the
applicant must pass an examination
in botany, plane geometry aud geueral
history, which may b titken at any
oue examinatiou dnriug the life of his
state certificate. This is on the as
sumption that the applicaut takes out
a state certificate before he takes out
his state diploma. If the applicant
wishes to tnke oat the Btnte diploma
at once, he must complete the 21 sub
jecta in three suoceaaive exatnina
tions. All of the foregoing takes
effect in February llMJS.

AMONG THE LODGES
Tomorrow evening the members of
Wenonsh Council No. 10, Degree of
Pocahontas, the companion order to
that of the Improved Order of Red-
men, will hold an important meeting
and the brave warriors from Takilma
Tribe will attend and assist in the
big banquet whichwill be forthcoming".
Grand Master Richard Scott and
Grand Patriarch H. M. Bock with, of
the Oregon I. O. O. F. have been
swinging around the circle, making
the variona lodges an oftlcial visit
aud they are said to have the Grauts
Pass lodges on their Jist and may
soon be expected to drop in here to see
how the orders are progressing.
Wednesday evening Reames Chapter,
R.AT M.'held an""impdrtant meeting"
Several applications .for mem
bership were passed upon and the in
dications poiut to a very lively fall
aud winter campaign. In fact there
will probably be special meetings
every week for some time to come, in
order to pnt the many cand'dates who
are in waiting through the ganntlet.
Tuesday evening Grants Pass Camp
Nor8007rModern Woodmen ofAmeM
ca will assemble to attend to business
of more than passing importance. In
the very near .future J. W. Simmons,
the hustling state deputy will be here,
for the purpose of seooring a large
class of initiates and when these are
brought into the mysteries of the
order, it will be made the occasion for
a rousing rally of the varions camps
in Southern Oregon.
After having been defnnct in this
city for a time, the Order of Pendo is
again to be started and this is dne to
the untiring efforts of N. C. Boynton,
the energetio local deputy. He has
secured a large number ot applica
tions for membership and these will
be taken through the trying ordeal in
the near future.
That was indeed an enjoyable
gathering of Masons who attended the
Saturday evening session of Grants
Pass Lodge No. 84. A. F. & A. M.,
when one of those social sessions for
which this order is noted was had.
The members of Grants Pass Camp
No. 800,M. V. A., are planningto
have a very novel entertainment for
tiie m'embers'aiid invited Itnes'tsquite'
soou. It is proposed to have aregu
lar, good, old-fushoned hnnting party.
The membership will be divided'into
two separate parties, each to strive to
see which ,can succeed in running
down and killing the largest number
of jack rabbits. The members are
looking forward to the coming event
with pleasurable anticipation," for
they feel sure that it will provide
some very wholesome amusement.
Next Tuesday evening the members
of Thermopylae Lodge No.50 K. P. will
hold "high jinks," so it is rumored,
the occasion being a big .banquet and
a general good time. Just what will
be the exact nature of the affiir is
kept a profound secrot, bat it goes
without the saying ;that the Sir
Knights will have a "high old time"
The various Odd Fellows orders of
the city have iu contemplation thefur
nishiug of their hall with a hand
some lot of new furniture and fixtures
and whit is still better, thi y propose,
if possible, that these artioles shall
be made of Josephine county oak aud
further, they want to see them manu
factured right here in Grants Pass.
Other secret orders will watch thiir
movements in this direction with
much interest and if they are success
fully carried out, it is safe to goess
that many other local lodge rooms will
ba likely to hate similar treatment.
Grants Pass has a number of enth
usiastic Elks aud it is understood that
they are thinking, qntte seriously of
having a lodge of this popular order
established here. It is well known
that the order grew so rapidly when
it was allowed that brauches might
be established anywhere, and so; a
rule has been made that no city hav
ing less than 5000 pooulation ahnnlrl
be permitted to bave a B. P. O. E.
lodge. But Grants Pass has the 6000
people and now there is nood material
for perfecting a strong lodge of the
order in this city.
