THE STATE LOSES
MARION COUNTY SftXl'RES A VERDICT
IX Sl'PREME COURT.
lathaAetloa II magna Collaet the I-
fefvatea liellaqarat State Taiaa
' V Oilier Ueelaloaa. 1' ;
In the supreme court, yesterday,
seven cases, heretofore argued pn ap
Ieal, were decided. The most interest
ing and important ot these cases was
that' of the State of Oregon, appellant,
vs. Marion county, respondent, an ap
peal from the judgment of Hon. Geo.
II.' .Burnett, judge of the state circuit
court for Marion county. The case is
better known as the delinquent tax
case, the interest on delinquent ; state
taxes being involved, and'( it was, de
cided in favor of the respondent Mari
on icouhty, tle decision of the lower
court being upheld. The opinion in the
case was written by Associate Justice
K. S. Bean, and is as follows: -
, "This is an action to recover inter
est upon state taxes apportioned to the
, defendant county for the years 1895,
! and 1S97, for the time they re
mained unpaid after the first day of
March 'of toe succeeding year..). The
case was tried upon a stipulation of
fact, from which it appears that the
county assessment . roll for the year
ittos was placed in the hands of the
sheriff, for the collection of the taxes
in March. i&A which was the earliest
dale possible, and that as fast as the
taxjes were collected they were paid
by i the sheriff to the treaejurer,' and by
such officer -immediately paid over to
thj plaintiff until the whole amount of
thj- state tax was paid, and it is agreed
mat the facts are substantially the same
foii the years 1806 and 1K97. The court
bcow held that the plaintiff could not
recover interest on the deferred pay
ments, because it was impossible for the
defendant - to collect the. morfey, with
' which to pay the" state tax within the
time required by the law then in force.
t'Section 2813 of the statute, at the
tiitie this cause of action accrued, pro
vided that, on or before the first, Mon
day of February in each year, the, coun
ty j treasurers of certain counties in
cluding TVlarion should pay to the state
treasurer the amount of the state taxes

charged to their respective counties,
out of the first; moneys collected and
paid jftto the countv treasury. And
section 2790, as amended in 1893, (laws
ot 189J. pi 47) provides that, if any
county' shall fail to pay its entire tax
withinj: thirty days from the date pre
scribed in section 2813. the unpaid bal
ance shall become delinquent and the
county shall oay-interest thereon from
such date until paid. , At the time of
the enactment of section 2813, the law
required the. tax levy to be made by
the county court at its September term
in each year, and the county clerk,
within fifteen days thereafter, to deliver
to the sheriff a transcript of the assess
ment roll,; with a warrant attached
commanding him to collect the . taxes
charged thereon. Title 4, cfi. 53, laws
1004. the sheriff, therefore had four
months at least in which to collect suf
ficient money , with which, to pay the
state l tax before it became delinquent.
Since that time the revenue law has been
so modified and changed by the amend
ment of particultr sections, apparently
without regard to other provisions of
the law, that it is now impossible for
the assessment roll to reach the hands
of the sheriff before the. 15th of Febru
ary, and. therefore, in the very nature
of things, he is unable to collect any
moneys out of which the state taxes are
to be paid, prior to the time they be
come due under section 2813. ,
I "Thus in 1891 the legislature created
a -state board of equalization, and re
quired it to assemble at the state capitol
on the first Tuesday in December and
remain in session not more than thirty
days. Within five days after its ad
journment, the secretary of state was
required by the act (since repealed) to
report the action of the board to the
several county clerks, and they were
required to add to or deduct from each
tract or lot of real property; and each
Class of personal property the required
per centum on the valuation thereof as
it stood after being equalized by the
county court. Under this law, it was
Impossible for the county clerk to com
plete assessment roll until late in Janu
ary, if. indeed, by that time.. -But in
1803. after the passage of the law re
quiring the counties to pay interest on
delinquent state taxes, and at the same
sessiojti. the legislature passed an act
to secure a more convenient mode of
assessments and of collecting and pay
ing taxes, and -to amend section 2704
(of the statute (laws 1893, p. 116) which
provides that all taxes, levied by the
school districts, incorporated towns or
cities, shall be upon the valuation of
the . property as -shown by the county
assessment roll. And it is made the
duty of each school district, incorpor
ated town or city, to notify the clerk
of the county court of the1 tax levy
made by it on or. before the first day
of February in ea,ch year, and after
all such notices have been received it
is made the duty of the county cleric
.to extend the tax so levied upon the
tax roll, and it. shall be collected by the
same officer, in the same manner, and
at the same time that the taxes for
county purposes are collected. By
section 2704, as so amended, it is made
the duty of the county clerk of each
county, within fifteen days after the
apportionment of the taxes, to make
a certificate of the several amounts
apportioned to be assessed upon the
taxable property in his 'county for the
state, connty, general and special,
school, military, university, and town,
city or other purposes, and deliver the
same to : the sheriff, together, with a
warrant commanding him to collect
Such taxes and turn, over the money
on or before the first Monday of April
next ensuing: Laws 1893, p. 116,
"It is manifest from these several
provisions of the law that- it is a phy
'sical impossibility for the tax roll to
be prepared and the taxes extended
thereon until after the first day of Feb
ruary, of each year, and, therefore, it
is impossible for the sheriff to collect
any -money prior to that time out of
which the state tax can be paid. Sec
tkm 2813, : as originally enacted con
templated that the county should have
a reasonable time after the completion
of the assessment roll and its delivery
to the. sheriff : to collect the money
with which to pay" the state taxes, and
while it is, perhaps, competent for the
legislature - to require the counties to
pay their5 portion of the state tax" on or
before a certain fixed time, without re
gard to the collection thereof,-it was
evidently not the purpose or intent of
that section to require them to do So.
At the time it was passed the counties
pad ample time in which to make the
collection?, and- it provides that the'
payment shall be made out of the first
moneys collected. The legislature, by
subsequently changing and amending
the law so that it was impossible for
the co.m ties to make collection within
the time specified, rendered the re
quirements of sectioa- 2813, before the
(amendment of 1899 (laws of 1809, p. 85)
in this regard nugatory, and the state
ought not. therefore, to be permitted
to insist that the counties shall pay in
terest because of a default which it was
impossible for them to avoid on ac
count of the action of the state itself.

! A DEBATING CONTEST.
Editor Staet&man: On last Saturday

and the Red Men's Lyceum- met for a
friendly discussion of , the woman's
rights question in the gymnasium hall
at Chenuwa. . I -
The evening being pleasant, a goodly
number assembled to witness the ora
torical (combat. The first : $art ' of the
evening was devoted to. a I half hours
literary program from each of the so
cieties, consisting ot vocal and instru
mental 'music oh violin and piano, re

societies were ably represented, and
each number was heartily .Lencored.

these two judges selected a third. Mr.
Overman. Mr. Powers and, Miss Dosey
formed the trio who were to decide the
momentous question. r
