In tho last Issue of the Union He-
publican there apprars a three column
erticlo signed Mr. L J Davis, under
the bead of "A new County Idea."
T is article reviews the bietury of
Union county from 1804 to tho presout
time, and deals at length with the var
ious county seat battles and Dually
wiuds up with tho startling asuortion
that In order to best luauro pea e and
puisperity to the citizens of Union
county, a new county should In
formed. It seems strange to us that the peace,
prosperity and future happiness of tbe
people of Union cour.ty cculd in anv
way be efteotod by an imaginary liue
run around a certain territory.
