WILSON A COOK
I would ask for information: What is the
matter with the present county court? It
looks to me they are more like children than
like men, ami should be aired a little
through the papers. Why did they build
the last bridge across the mouth of the Tu
alatin at a big expense to accommodate
three or four people? and now the bridge
is built and can't be crossed for there is no
road to it, and the man who owns the land
says the county will have to pay for it be
fore they get a road. It seems anything
that points to Oregon City this famous
court sanctions and puts it through whether
the people want it or not. But there is a
pay day sometime and who is going to foot
the bills? The people, of course.
- This county court in small matters is very
particular, and want to gain notoriety by
cutting down small bills where they are
just. I will cite to one case: This court
appointed three viewers to view the
damage on a road in Pleasant Hill Mr.
Ford from Oswego precinct, Mr. Geer, who
lives in the extreme upjier end of the coun
ty, from Pleasant Hill, and J. L. Kruse
from Tualatin. The law says these viewers
have to be sworn before they enter ujion
their duty. F. M. Kruse, a justice of the
peace, went there, five miles, by requestor
oneo) the viewers to save the trouble of the
other two viewers going so far to be sworn.
His bill, ilM, was put in with the viewers',
and this court cut it down to 75 cts. without
making any inquiry. Is that justice and
right? But the large bills they pay without
saying a word and amen to it.
I want to ask, for information, does the
county pay lor the electric lights on the
auienion bridge at your city? fit does
If this county court keeps on at the lick
they aregoingsending the people's money,
the county will be bankrupt. I think it's
time for them to let up, or the people to ask
them to resign, one of the two.
I would like to hear from other corres
pondents through the county about this
matter of the court doing as it does.
Yours truly, A C'bitic.

Beaver Creek, Dec. 8. We think Ram
bler' suggestion a good one, and will now
proceed to locate our district. It is situated
about six miles south-east of Oregon City
on the Highland road. It is a thriving lit
tle burg, in the center of which we find Mr.
Thomas running a general merchandise
store. He also keeps the post office. A lit
tle south of that we have two fine churches,
one Presbyterian, the other Congregational.
Just east of the churches is locoled the
school house. These buildings are sur
rounded by finely improved farms. The
farmers have a large acreage of small grain
sown that looks well.
Madame Rumor says there will be a wed
ding at Beaver Creek soon.
