To the Votora and Tax payers of Harney County, 1.00 .78 Notice to Election Boards The attention of the Judges and Clerks of election is respect fully called to the provisions of Sections 3327 and 3328, which you will find on pages 24 and 'Jf of the election Laws to be fur nished Election Boards; particu lar attention is called to that portion of Section 3327, reading as follews: "When the count is completed, the ballots, counted and sealed. and envoloped and marked for identification as aforesaid, shall be packed in the two ballot boxes, AND NOTHING ELSE SHALL BE PUT INTO THE BOXES." The remainder of the returns should be sent OUTSIDE the boxes by the Judge or Clerk con veying such returns to the county T. HUGHET, County Clerk. Through the courtesy of Mr. J. W. Biggs, I have been permitted to read a circular which is to be distributed by J. F. Mahon for the purpose of injury to my can- $2.oo ' didacy for the office of County Clerk; it reads in part as follews: To The Voters of Harney County The following protest was fil ed before the Board of Equalisa tion, composed of County Judge Grant Thompson, Clerk R. T. Hughet, and Assessor Jas. Done gan. It was presented in good faith and with the honest endeavor to have the assessment raised on a class of property which we think is valued far too low and not in proportion with other property in the county. The refusal of the request and the failure of our efforts were accomplished partly through the action and vote of Clerk K. T. Hughet, who holds his position not by the expressed will of the voters but by appointment, and whose election to this office this Fall will be a ratification of this act. Do the taxpayers of Harney County uphold such action? Noted Contralto Coming. made for the reason that the law require that the valuation- b placed on each legal subdivision; the Board not being in possession of data to make an equitable dis tribution of valuations made the above recommendation to the end that discrepancies of this kind should not be permitted to exist I ask you to examine the re cords ami compare YOUR assess ment with the valuations placed on livestock and to give to this matter cartful consideration to the end thiil you will not be mis led by the misrepresentation of a man who through selfish and un worthy motives came before a Board of Kquity with unclean hands, and who now is posing as the Democratic Boss through po litical bias and personal spite sin gles out for attack the one mem ber of the Board who is at this time a Republican candidate for public office. R. T. HlKlHKT, County Clerk and Republican Nominee for County Clerk. In Reply to Mr. Hughet. in Mrs. Lulu Dohl Miller, who will be heard here in a concert, in November possesses a rare, sympathetic, voice of a most un usual quality. She is a singer of wide experience having been with the Fritzie Scheff Opera Co. in "The Prima Donna" for one season and having filled the position of contralto soloist of the Rutyers Presbyterian Church, New York, succeeding Mrs. Clarence Eddy, in this position which is one of the best choir positions in New York. Of her recent work in La Grande the papers say: "A record afternoon crowd yesterday listened to one of the finest vocal recitals ever given on a local stage when Lulu Dahl Miller entertained her many ad mirers, both here and from out of town points with a program of selected numbers, repeating many numbers by special re quest. A singer of note having filled important parts in opera, both heavy and light, she has a voice of wonderful range and sweetest tones. Mrs. Miller handles with ease the heaviest roles or the simple little home loved songs. If Mrs. Miller should, by any good fortune, re turn tgala to sing for us, the largest auditorium in the city would be packed to overflowing. "Richelieu" one of the most ar tistic and intererting features ever produced in pictures, will be given at Tonawama on the night of Nov. 20 as a benefit to the Public Library. This has been selected by the Library instead of producing an entertainment with local talent as has been w custom in the past. "Richelieu" is produced on four reels, but there are to be two additional reels, making the program a big one. Mrs. Gillen water Bakery, bread doughnuts and Rocks alwuys on hand.

The purpose of the protest was to have the valuation, as fixed by the County Assessor, of $2.50 on sheep raised to $3.00 per head and tue valuation of $20.00 on cattle raised to $36.00 per head; at time the protest was filed Mr. Mahon was asked his opinion as to whether or not proper valuations had been placed on land, he at that time stated that he thought land was about right; this pro test was denied by unanimous ac tion of the Board of Equalization after careful consideration and comparison, using tne valuation on land as the basis. An exam ination of the assessment roll sat isfied me that land was not as sessed at more than 60 per cent of its value and therefore that it would be unjust to raise the valuation on livestock with out at the same time raising the valua tion on land, in this mstter the Board made the following rec ommendatien: "This Board, realizes that manv changes in the relative val ue of lands have occurred since the survey and classification made in 1909, and we would respect fully recommend to the County Court of Harney County that pro visions be made for a reclassifi cation of lands before the assess ment valuations for 1916 be fixed and that for this purpose suffi cient help be furnished to the County Assessor to perform the required examination and classi fication". Let us see if Mr. Mahon pre sented the protest in 'good faith and with the honest endeavor": The Assessment roll disclosed the fact that Mr. Mahon is ass essed with 4766 acres of land, the assessed value of which with improvements is $19,776.00 or less than $4.26 per acre (try to buy the Principality of Mule for $4.26 per acre and you will find that it ia listed and on the mar ket at $26.00 per acre) you know, Mr. Mahon knows, an the Board knew that this is not a fair val uation and that it should be rais ed in order that it might be equi uable as compared with the value placed on livestock by the Coun ty Assessor, this raise was no In reply to the letter published the News of October 21. 1 wish to say that the protest made and signed by myself and others to the Board of Equalization was made in good faith and for the sole purpose of trying to get fair and equitable assessment. As for myself. I was willing and asked that sheep be raised and I am a sheep raiser. Sheep are herded together and are al ways in a position to be easily counted nnd are given in full, or neatly so, to the assessor. Cattle are generally given in at less than half of the number on hand or owned. Sheep at the present time are worth about $4.00 per head on tho average and are as sessed at $2.50. Cattle are now worth on an average about $66.00 per head and are assessed at $20. 03. Shcco men give in their num ber in full, and are assessed at 62$ per cent of their value. Cattle are given in at 50 per cent or less in number and then assessed at only 35 percent of their value. A sheep man, therefore, pays on 62 percent of the value of his pro perty; the cattle man on only 174 per cent of the value of his. Is this fair? Who owns the cattle? Five or six persona own nearly 75 percent of the cattle in this Coun ty. Now, who is benefited by the low rate on cattle? If Mr. Huirhct lias clean hands, why did he not take this into consideration at that time? In whose interest does he seem to be working the millionaire cattle man or the av erage taxpayer? As for my land, the iMsator has every acre assessed which I own, and as to the value per acre, he arbitral ily fixed the price with out consulting me. I made no protest as to the land for the rea son that I knew another party was making objection to that, and I upheld his objection. The reason I did that was that he had full facts on which to base his objection to the valuation of land, and I did not have those facts. This protest on land was also disallowed and the Board refused to correct the equalizations of the assessment upon the land. wasjicv r asked (as stated by Mr. Hughet; my opinion on the valuation on land, and did not give it. Ihe question was asked by some of the Board, "What about land?" and I said, "Others will attend to that who know more about it" Now, their only contention and reason for not allowing this pro test, according to Mr. Hughe t's statement, was that they had made greutcr irregularities in the UNScsments of land and therefore had the right to make these ir regularities in regard to cattle and sheep. In fact, their claim is that they have made the as sessment such that the big tax payer gets a great deal the best of it on land, therefore they have the name right to give him a great deal the best of it on per sonal property; but do you think that because a wrong assessment is made upon one class of property that that is a justification for a wrong assessment upon another class? I will be glad to have my lands assessed at their actual value if they will assess the other land on the same basis, and that is the only fair way in whieh to make the assessment. The present as- sessement does not favor, either upon land or personal property the small taxpayer but does favor the large taxpayer in every in stance. If the Board Oregon, for what it is worth. I have done what 1 have done so far, st the request of a number of the best men of the County, all of them boing tax payers. I have done it further for the rea son that I believe It is just and right and if it appeals to you in this manner, I ask you to do what you think is right in correct ing it. Jameh F. Mahon. A Pioneer Citizen Dead From an Accident. Word was received here Wed nesdsy evening of the death of L. N. Olson at Drewsey. Tho Times-Herald secured some of the particulars of the cause of his death from 0. W. Clcvenger, who returned from Drewsey yes terday evening. Mr. Olsen had gone out in the hills riding for stock and his horse threw him. A man saw Mr. Olsen on a side hill near his ranch walking with the aid of two sticks and as he came nearer where the man was at work in the field he fell and called for assistance. He immediately tied his team with which he was plowing and went to the pros trate man and asked what was the matter when he said his horse had thrown him and com plained of his side. A team was secured and the injured man taken to Drewsey, but never regained consciousness after starting on the journey to town. death occurred soon after reach ing home. Mr. Olson was a pioneer resi dent of that section and was well known all over the county. The funeral was held yesterday after noon at Drewsey. Many regret him untimely death. To the Voters of Harney County. In asking for your support in the coming election. 1 invite the public inspection of my work during the time I held the poef tionof County Surveyor, knowing my record will compare very fav orably, both as to efficiency of work and amountof expenditures, with that of any one who has ever held that office in this county. If elected I shall endeavor to give prompt and efficient service, with proper consideration to economy of county funds, and a square deal to everyone. I consider myself a permanent resident of tho county having lived here, with the exception of the time spent in school, since early boyhood. I have grown up with the country. I know its needs. My interests are all here. I am backed neither by political clique nor ring, but stand on my own merits as being thoroughly com petent and ask your assistance in electing a Harney County boy. Frank P. Gowan. Republican nominee for Surveyor LAID TO REST. The funeral of the late Dr. Elizabeth Ellis was held Thurs day afternoon from the family residence, Rev. Dr. Benson read ing the Episcopalian service and also made extended remarks of an appropriate character in ad dition. The funeral was largely attended and the magnificent floral emblems attested the high esteem in which the deceased was held by the poople of thia vicinity. Her daughter, Miss Georgie, arrived from Washington Tues duy evening, but her health was such that it was decided to wait another day before the funeral service. Miss Ellis is reported improving with every indication of soon recovering her usual hoalth. I r. Ellis was such a useful and valuable citizen of thia section that if will be impossible to fill her place and her genial charac ter leaves a void in many places where she was so well known and respected. The funeral of Mrs. Win Gowan was held Monday afternoon from the Masonic Lodge room, the service being conducted by tne local Chapter O. E. S.
