A county is a public corporation
and it is apparent that section 2 of
article XI, of the Constitution of
Oregon, as amended, reserves to the
people the right to create a county by
There is no general law for the
creation of counties now, and no one
knows when, if ever, there will be
one. The facts as to area, population
and assessed valuation show that we
are able to maintain a county govern
ment. Out of a population of about
7,500 the desire of a county for the
Hood River country is earnest and
unanimous with the exception of a
small fraction of one per cent. We
are assured by leading citizens of The
Dalles, Dufur and other portions of
Wasco county that they have no ob
jections to the creation of Hood River
County as proposed in this bill. More
than 400 residents of The Dalles and
Durfur have signed the petitions ask
ing that this bill be submitted to a
vote at the June election, though
fortv-five names from Dufur were re
ceived too late to be filed with the
Secretary of State.
The people of the Hood River
country therefore ask favorable con
sideration of the voters of the State
upon this bill for these, among other
Because the new county will" be a
great benefit to the people residing
therein and will facilitate the transac
tion of their county business.
Because as the law stands a county
cannot be created by the Legislature;
Because the people of The Dalles
and the balance of Wasco County are
willing that Hood River County may
be created as provided in this bill.
The assessed valuation in the pro
posed Hood River County in 1903 was
$908,568.00; in 1906 was ?l,618,t)u,
showinsr a Eain in valuation from 1903
to 1906 of $710,102.00, or about 78 per
cent. The valuation in 1907 was $2,
762,250.00; a gain over 1906 of $1,143,
580.00, or about 70 per cent, showing
the proportionate increase in one
year irom ivuo to yrji iv uc iuw
as great as that in three years from
1903 to 1906.
The proposed Hood River County
has a population of about 7,500; aa
area of about 500 square miles; and
twenty school houses, seven of which
