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
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
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. Chief Justice MoBride,
and Justices lloore and Benson concur.
