CITY LOSES 1WELFTH STREET PAVING SUITS Property Owners Released From Paying for Work Done Over Remonstrance "Tlie assessment attempted to le levied on neeount of the defect iu the publication of the notice for bids is not vuliil and the decree is therefore sus tained" . With this statement Judgo Harris of the Oregon supreme eourt shuttered the hopes of tlu? city of Salem to collect the assessment levied on the property owners of 8onth Twelfth street for the paving done between Mission street nd the south city limits. It nlso (jnve a glad tidings to the property owners tlint they would not have to pay for the pav ing. Two suits were settled at this one time. The first is the case of George J. Watson, and 2'J others, respondents, against the city of Salem, appellants, appeal from Marion county, Judge Gal loway; the second wn j. H. Albert, re .spuudeut, against the city of Salem, appellant, which was decided in favor of the plaintiff. The suit also concern ed South Twelfth street. The plaintiffs and respondents were represented by John H. Carson and Claire M. Inmau and the city by K. W. Mney nnd (iant. Corby, with W. H. Trindle, 11. D. Roberts, K. K. l'nge and V. T. Slater appearing on brief. The outline of the case us stated in the opinion of Justice Harris recites that notwithstanding a, remonstrance was filed by certain property owners, thfl city of Salem entered into a. con tract for paving South Twelfth street between Mission street nnd the south city limits. On completion of this im provement a special assessment was levied-on the abutting property for the Speaking (Breakfasts 1 '! i Grape-Nuts There's a Reason cost of the paving. ' Claiming' the assessment "was void George J. Watson and 22 others com menced suit for the purpose of freeing their land from the encumbrance of the attempted assessment. Tho city assert ed the assessment was valid. A trial i resulted in a decree in favor of the I plaintiffs nnd the city npepaled. j The substance of Justice Harris' de Icision states that the plaintiff contend ed the assessments were void because cuff ivicnt. remonstrance was filed and j because notuce for bids were not pub j lished in conformity with provisions of the charter. Section 2S of the charter ! directs that improvements shall not pro- ceed "If owners of more than two I thirds majority of the superficial area of property adjacent to such street or part thereof" file a written remon- jstrance withiu a specified time. the city contended that the super ficial area v as 1.2til,tUl square feet and that to be valid the remonstrance should have S40.ti75 square feet repre- j iiented. The remonstrance, the city; says, was insufficient because it con-j tained only 7ii:5SS square feet. i The plaintiffs insisted the remon strance represented a larger area than admitted by the city- The difference between calculations arose out of the attempted replnttina of some property adjacent to the street. The decision I goes on to say that all the land hail, been platted previous to the commence ment of the paving proceedings. After I I the proceedings began but prior to the I expiration of time allow ed for filing of remonstrances and before the contract was let. an attempt was made to feplat I without first vacating the prevails plat. I The plaintiffs base their remonstrance on the attempted plat and the city on the previous plat on the theory that the j attempted plat was void. However, the I court says: "The view we take con- cerning the publication of the notice j for bids is determinative of the suit." I There is a provision in the charter re j lating to the publication of the notices ; making them mandatory and in the j manner required by the charter. The I court says: "Since the mode is the measure of the power, a failure to fol low the prescribed mode will invalidate an -attempted assessment." The decision goes on to analyze the various provisions of the charter rela tive to the time of publishing notices. Regarding this time the charter says that the notices for bids shall be pub lished "for not less than five succes sive days. " According to the law or the state the first day of publication is excluded and the last day included. Therefore, the notices must be publish ed five full days before the bids are closed. When bids were advertised on June 5, 1913, the first day -was accordingly excluded, and the whole of June 10 w ould be required to be included. There fore the notice for bids was not pub lished in conformity with the charter. The bids were, advertised to be opened on or after June 10 but were opened that date aud on that account'the no tices were not published for the full period of time. The city srgued that even though it was decided that the notices were not published the full period of time as re quired by law. the plaintiffs have not shown that other or additional bids were prevented or that the property owners suffered or v.crc injured- The decree of Judge Galloway i-s therefore sustained. Chief Justice Mc Bride, and Justices Bean and MeCam ant concurred. Several other minor cases were hand ed dow n. Among them was the follow ing: In the matter of V. C. Barker, a spendthrift, claim of Vascher Brothers, grocer, for goods sold and delivered, an appeal taken by the guardian of Baker from the decree of Judge Gantenbein in favor of the claimant; affirmed by Judge Burnett.
