B. C PeWITT CO., CHICAQO
That the Oliver family have been fairly
successful rsceipienta of public favors is
attested by the continuation of their
names upon the county payroll for a
period of twenty years, and now come
J. R. Oliver as a candidate for county
judge for another four years' servic.
Dating back to 1886, Mr. Turner Oliver
entered the clerk' office a a deputy under
A. T. Neill, whom he succeeded three
years later. Upon being elected in 1890,
Mr. Turner Oliver made his brother Jack
a deputy which position he filled for four
years, or until he was elected clerk.
which position he held four year unti
1898. . Under Jack's administration,
brother Charley was made a deputy, with
the idea of being groo med for the next
succossor but the opposition to this family
succession proved too strong and Brother
Charley was retired and 'the political
wires were successfully laid for the man
tle of Jack to fall upon Geo. Benson, with
the understanding that Jack was to be
continued Uxn the county payroll ae
deputy, and he was. The records also
show that Mrs. J. R. Oliver was upon the
payroll from time to time.
Union county has paid this family in
warrants $47,000 and after a brief re
laxation, now comes Jack back for another
four years pull at the coiinty seat
The $47,000 mentioned above repre
sents only a portion of the emoluments
for eight years cf this period the office
was under the fee system and flat
salary. It is safe to say that $25,000
could easily be added to the $47,000.
It is a well known fact that upon the
removal of the county seat to La Grande
Mr J. R. Oliver was compelled to move tj
this city in order to successfully continue
his extensive abstract business which is
second to none in Eastern Oregon and
upon reaching this city made persistent
attempts to secure office rooms in the
court house but under the lease from the
city of La Grande this was not permiss
ible. Jack has a long head, all right His
many years of experience in the court
house taught him the advantage to be
gained by having his office in the same
building and after failing to gain admiss
ion, he commenced laying his wires and
secured the nomination for county jubge.
Now Jack does notreally care so much
for the office which wily pays $1200 per
year as he does for the opportunity to get
his abstract office into the court house.
On the fase of th return of the pri
mary it seems rather strange that in the
Union precincts Mr. Oliver received every
Democratic vote with the exception of
three. Th following may furnish th
needed explanation: Upon several occa
sion Mr. J. R. Oliver appeared before the
county court seeking to obtain an option on
th county building at Union. Owing to
th fact that th court realized that it
would b impossible to secur anything
ilk th tru value of - th property, th
proposition .was not considered Mr.
Oliver later appeared befor th court and
asked that th property be offered for sal
to th highast bidder, this for similar
reasons was not considered.
Union it planing skilful polit'c. Sh
vote a a unit on vry proposition m
which she is interested and her sole op
ject is to again become a county seat
through the formation of a new county.
Now if Union secured the old county build
ings for a song, they could go befor th
people and leg '.slature, with th fact that
they have a courthouse to th new county
free. Mr. Harrison defeated the, very
scheme that Mr. Oliver tried to secur for.
them. The Union vote show in whom they
expected to find a friend at court They
have no independent candidate for county
