to Divide County
ThewUnot a siugl. reason why
Volon county should be divided, ex
cept Utt the town of Union want a
county tett and in her hsat- of frsnsy
to get even on La Grande trie to make
b-raelf believe that the would be just
ifie l in the atmpt; but wben in aftrr
yeare the finds berteif tax ridden it
will be too late to repot if successful
now. While Union could come nearer
in pi ying even, how about the other
The Portland paper assert that
Bepresentative Dobbin farora a dlvis
ion, Senator McDonald and Repre
sentative MoLeod aa againat it while
Senator Pierce ia reported to be unde
cided ; ...
The bill was introduced by reqoeat,
by Representative Bally, of Portland.
The Union delegation now on the
ground is headed by Attorneys Coch
ran and Davis. As yet those opposed
to division have not seat a lobby This
bill should not pass and if properly
presented the committee on oountlea
wonld never give a favorable report
but It might if the other aide is not
properly shown up.
' One of the reasons why a few certain
office seekers around Union are work
in so bard for tne subdivision of Un
ion e uuty is sally accounted for by
noting the political power Union . will
have in the new county. Of the 825
votes is the new county, Union will
cast 403. Under such a condition, if
the outside preclnota entertain the
hope of securing much reoognitio
they will be doomed to disappointment.
DIMINISH OCR POWER
Two email counties do not exercise
tbe earns influence as one large edunty.
As the county is today we onl v have
one exclusive representative, our other
a a joint with Wallowa, both our
senators are joint, Pierce with Umatil
la, Morrow and Union, McDonald rep
resents Wallowa and Union. By the
division of our present territory our
Influence would correspondingly de
crease in both counties.
On last Thursday afternoon as pas
senger train No 6 left- Huntington it
was boarded by a man who said he
wanted to go to Lime Siding, about
six miles I f Huntington.
There was ooiuiug uuusual in, this,
but before tbe trsin had proceeded
half tbe distance to that plaoe, some
one pulled the ball rope with the sig
nal to Stan . Tha train hrnran tn mtmm
down, and the conduotor and brake
man were unable to understand
the cause. On examination one ot
tbe doors in the vestibule was , found
open and the eondnotor and ether of
ficials of tbe trsin saw a person with
some bnndles 'carrying away from the
train. It proved to be the man who
was going to Lime Siding. 8bortly
after the conductor, Anderson, found
out that be was minus an overooal
and his band grip in which be carried
tickets, tags snd other things neces
sary for the carrying out of bis duties
These articles bad been left locked up
in one of the closets, and it is inex
plicable how tbe man gained an en
trance to it. The guilty party was
arrested at Huntington and bie pre
liminary owing was bad yesterday,
the result being that be was bound
over to await tbe action of the Cirouit
Court in tbe aum of $5,000.
