COUNTY OFFICERS SERVE LONG TERMS That our outgoing countv of ficers were popular with the pub- uc at large was demonstrated by the fact that thev have all served good long terms. Z. M. Derrick, ex-county sur veyor has been our surveyor the past eighteen or twenty years, which we believe is a record, in the state of Oregon. Mr. Der rick was a good surveyor and made a good official. G. B. McCluskey, ex-county treasurer, was appointed to this office In the fall of 1907, to fill out tne unexpired term of J. L. Hyde, deceased. That Mr. Mc Cluskey made an efficient and pleasing official is attested by the fact that he was re-elected to this important office four times and then quit by reason of the press of his erowlne leirnl practice. Mr. McCluskey was al so secretary or tne State Treas urers' Association. W. E. Ball ex-county assessor first served the county In the ca pacity of deputy sheriff and in March. 1907. was appointed county assessor to finish out the lerm or j. n. Lutz, deceased. Af ter serving out Mr. Lutz's term Mr. Ball was elected to this Important office, and was again re-elected four vears later serv- ine un to the nresent time Mr Ball has made a good conscien tious assessor, and can always I point with pride to his official ; record. Mr. Ball during the past year, served as president of the state Assessors Association. TOLEDO CINCHES COUNTY TITLE With the victory of last Sun day the Toledo team proved its right to the county football championship. The score at the end of the game stood Toledo 32; Siletz 0. The score was so decisive that it left no room for argument. The Siletz warriors came over to humble the Toledo team .which had twice defeated New- iport, and during the first few minutes of play It seemed that ithey might make good, but final ly the Toledo aggregation se cured the ball, in the shadow of j their own goal posts, and the march down the field began, and it resulted in a touchdown, but Carson failed to kick goal. Only 'once during the game was the loledo goal In danger, and then the score was saved by Siletz fumbling the ball. In all Toledo made five touchdowns and kick- led two goals. The running and dodging of I Clyde McMillan was on a par With that of "Tuffy" Conn, the i famous Aggie player, and did much to run up the big score. , Carson as usual was there with ;the goods and made yardage in the pinches. "Sturdy" and "Cannon" were "bears" on de fence and time and again kept Siletz from making yardage. For Siletz Arthur Bensell, Ad ams and Reed were hard to stop and made yardage for Siletz again and again. "Hank" Good ell and Lee Evans played a good defensive game,. Officials were: Refree C. O. Hawkins, umpire Al Lane, head linesman C. K. CroBno, time keepers G. B. McCluskey and Archie Lane.
