Portland, July 17. Beoauae tome
underlings In on of Aa land de
partments at Washington insist upon
a strict ooatruotlon ot the Chamber-laln-Farrti
net, the II land grant
counties of Oregon stand to lose ap
proximately $500,000 now dua and
unpaid In ooata, penalties and Inter
net upon the delinquent land grant
taxea. This large turn will (be lost
unless Congressmen Hawley and Mc
Arthilr, In whose dlstrlcta the land
grant counties lie, beet I r themselves
and force favorable action on , the
Chamberlain bill now dying a alow
death in the public lands committee
of the house.
The Chamberleln-Feriia act, which
became effective June 8, 1818, pro
vided tbt awbstaaoe, that the federal
government . should pay the "taxes
now1 due and unpaid" upon the grant
lands. v" .
These unpaid taxea amounted. In
principal, to approximately tl.800,
000 on June 8, 1816. There were
due at that date, more than f 800,
000 In costs, penalties and interest,
While since that data these. same
char ires have been running at the
rate of approximately ' 115,000 a
month, so that there ia now dua a
total, Including both principal and
Interest, cost and penalties of more
Early In the consideration ,. ana
construction of , th Chamberlain
Ferris act, the point was raised that
the strict language of the law seem
ed to Unit, the authority of the In
terior department to the payment of
the principal amount of taxes due on
June 9, 18 1, only, without the In
clusion ot penalties, costs or Inter
est, either those aecnmulatad prior
to June 8..1816, or after.
This; construction la contrary to
aM the teneta of the Oregon tax law,
as well as to most tax laws In force
throughout the United Statea, and
It waa not thought that there would
be any difficulty In curing the appar
ent harsh wording of the Chamberlain-Ferris
act, so aa to provide spe
cifically for the payment of all
charges that might Ibe due up to the
date of payment
Accordingly a bill waa prepared
and Introduced by Senator Chamber
lain In the senats, providing that in
the payment of taxea upon the grant
lands, all chargea should be paid up
to the date of payment. This bill'
waa passed by the senate within a
week or so after Its Introduction,
and without opposition. It then
went to the house, where U was re
ferred to the public lands committee.
Objection haa been raised to It by
some bureau chief, apparently, and
It is doubtful If It will ever get out
of the committee, unlesa strong pres
sure Is brought to bear in the house.
Even If It Is brought out, It will
need strong support In the house to
Insure Its .passage by that body.
No effort seems to have been made
In behalf of the bill by either Con
gressman Hawley, whose district
embraces all of the land grant coun
ties with the exception of Multno
mah, or by Congressman McArthur,
whose dletrlct consists of Multno
mah. If the bill Is not passed, and the
strict construction of the bureau
chief pp-evala, the 18 land grant
counties of the state will be paid
$1,200,000 only, thus losing the
$500,000 of accumulated costs, pen
alties and Interest.
