PALOUSE PROPERTY NOT ASSESSED TOO HIGH Equalization Board Turns Down All Petitions at Recent Meeting Held at Colfax. All complaints on assessment cot,- sidered by the board of equalization when it met August 15 were turned down by the board of equalization, according to the Colfax Gazette V. E. Jackman, one of the owners of the local laundry, reported that he "and his partners purchased the laundry fast February and paid the 1920 taxes. He petitioned the board for a refund on the ground that the assess- ment on the personal property was too high. It was higher than the val- uation put on it for previous years and higher than it was in 1921. His .petition was turned down, the board advising him that last year was the time to have made the complaint. Clara L. Staffelbach also petitioned for a reduction in the valuation of $420 on her property at the edge of Palouse. This was also turned down on the grounds that real estate values were fixed a year ago last March an~ could not be cha~ged until next March unless an error could be, proven. The board also considered other pe- titions from property owners in var- ious parts of the county, hut they "were all turned down for various rea- "sons. BUY PICRIC ACID FROM AGE17. Order Will Be Made September 1-- Mu~t Be Placed by A~ast 29. The Potlatch State bank and the .Latah State bank at Deary will ad- vance the freight on picric acid that may be ordered in Latah county, ac- cording to O. S. Fletcher. county agent for La[ah county, Idaho. Those wishing to secure this acid should put in their order to the'com- mitteemen in their neighborhood b?- .fol'e August 29, accompanying the or- der with a sufficient amount of money amounting to 6 cents a pound on the quantity of acid they w~sh to WILL DISCUSS IMPORTANT MAT- TERS--RECEPTION OF TEACH- ERS OF PALOUSE SCHOOLS WILL BE PLANNED. Earlier in the season the chamber of commerce took a recess till Sep- tember. It was understood at the time that the organization was subject to the call of the president at any time that matters of importance sufficient to be brought to the attention of the body should arise. J. C. Northrup, president of the chamber of commerce, gave out the information this week that the first meeting would be held Saturday, Sep- tember 3. A number of important matters will be brought to the attention of the chamber of commerce. Among them is the one of entertaining the teachers of the Palouse schools at a 'banquet or reception. It is desired that a good representation of the 'business men be present at this meet- ing. The chamber of commerce has ac-:- complished much good for Palouse in the past and should be started off this year in good shape. The harvest sea- son will be over by that time and an hour or two each week devoted to the discussion of matters pertaining to the interests of the community would bring as good dividends as anything the business men of Palouse could do. MILLER & S0N ISSUE FARE~ Than~ Public for Liberal Patronage J. A. Miller Will Remain Here. J. A. Miller and son, H. L. Miller, have ceased to be f~etors in busliless affairs in Palouse. In a recent state- ment a representative of the firm said: "We wish to thank the public for their liberal patronage during our business career in Palouse. We have TM been more or less interested in var- ious busines~ enterprises hera and we have always bee/t'patronized lib- erally." J. A Miller*intends to continue his ,, residence in this city, as he feels that : Palouse represents part of his life. The younger man, H. L. Miller, will doubtless enter business in some oth- er locality. Farmers Will Hold Meeting. A meeting of the members of the 'Wheat Growers association will be held in the pavilion on West Main street Saturday night. Everybody m invited to attend. The meeting will be held for the discussion of the as- soclation's affairs from the individ- ual grower's viewpoint. Schick Family to Move. !~B, M.
