J. 11. Mellaley had a line half
i breed l'erchuron stallion to ilie last
week with the llatulent colic. This
disease is generally caused by the
animal eating a large quantity of
coarse fucd, then drinking a large
quantity of water which washes the
food out of the stomach into the in
testinal canal which is clogged.
Gas forms in the stomach. The
stomach bursts and the death of the
animal is the result, as was the case
with Mr. Mellaley's horse.
Regarding the county seat ques
tion Mr. "A Voter" says: "First, it
would impose more tax on the peo
ple." Some time ago I consulted
one of our oldest settlers and heav
iest tax payers in regard to this
matter, and he said that he had
learned from experience that tho
deeper in debt a county is the better
it is for the tax payers. He says
that when tho county was deep in
debt he could buy scrip at fifty anil
sixty cents on the dollar to pay his
taxes with and taxes were no high
er then than they are now. So
what we are after over here is to
just keep building court houses till
we can buy scrip at forty cents on
the dollar to pay our taxes with.
I tried a little experiment a short

very highly to the readers of the

to water became rather monotonous,
so I thought I would try two. Their

they might get away from me I tied
them together. I had no more than
done this till they took a scare.
One ran around me ono way and
the other went around the other
way, and when they met ono jump

on around again. Just what they
did when they met tho second time

I see in the issue of the Long Creek
Kagle of January '.Hh LS'.ll an arti
cle entitled "A false document" and
signed "Kd C. Allun," which by rea
son of its slanderous denunciations
of the jKMide of Grant county, and
jinrlicularly of Canyon Citv, iloes in
my oiinion justify the author of the
article alluded to in heading his
communication with the name "A
false document."
The article alluded to is not wor
thy of reply in my opinion for the
jmrjiose of in any way iiillueucing
any citizen, voter or tax paver in
Grant county, for the reason tlio ar
ticle shows for itself just what it is
named, "A false document," but a
reply may be interesting or amus
ing to some of the readers of the
Nkw.s as a matter of history. Tho
author of the article sjveuks of "the
Court house ring," anil the head
and source of corruption, the 'ring
that ignored the rights of the peo
ple and tramiled their jictition to
death six years ago when they wish
ed to be consulted about building a
Court house.
Now the facts about the building
of the Court house and the jK-tilions
are about as follows:
About six or seven years ago
while A. J. Van Horn of Middle
precinct, and John Latirance of
I'rairie City were county commis
sioners and as such had control of
the business, money and jiroiverty
of the county, they jroxsed loiniihl
a Court homo as the one then used
was rutting down and the jail was
entirely unlit for use. Cjhiu this
great agitators of jiublic opinion of
John Day town and vicinity and
Long Creek boiug informed of what
was about to come to jiass without
their jicrinissioii they became high
ly indignant and immediately com
menced work canvassing the county
with a remonstrance and jtersuaif
ing the iojile that a great outrage
was about to be perpetrated and
that high taxes would bo levied up
on them and great money would be
taken from their jackets. The Bots
Agitator who is always ready to
sacrifice all of his relatives and
friends for the sake of the public,
and who in all probability has never
paid any kind of tax in Grant coun
ty, under the employment of the
ring of growlers canvassed the coun
ty from one end to the other and
managed by much persuasion to
obtain about 10J voters to the re
monstrance against building a new
Court house until the people could
obtain an act by the next legislat
ure, enabling them to vote ujhiii the
question .of relocating tho county
seat. All of the remonstrances then
circulated on the subject having
been returned to tho headquarters
contained in the aggregate !I(X)
names anil were iiresented to the
commissioners anil were considered,
and although not one-fifth of the
voters of tho county signed the
same thu county did not jKircced to
build thu Court" house as they had
A general election was held the
June following thu presentation of
the said remonstrance and Win.
Tureman of I'rairie City anil Geo.
McGowan of the town of Burns were
elected county commissioners of
(rant county.
Grant county was represented at
the next sussion of the legislature
by Henry Hall ami George W. Me
llaley both of Union orecinct. No
petition was presented to tho legis
lature by the voters of the county
asking that an act be passed allow
ing the people to vote on the ques
tion of relocating the county seat
ami consequently no enabling act
was passed. Then after the legis
lature adjourned the commissioners
with the consent of l'hil Metschan
built the Court house, which act of
the commissioners, aided by l'hil
Metschan the then county judge of
this county, was highly approved
by the voters and taxpayers of this
county, as was clearly shown by the
fact tiiat l'hil McUclian at the last
election in this county when he was
elected to tho high ollice of State
Treasurer received more votes than
any candidate then before the ko
pie. The idea that the cause of the in
debtedness of thu county, and the
corruption in ollice, as expressed by
the author of the false document of
the Long Creek lOagle, to every sen
ssble man and men of sober un
prejudiced minds is Minnly abetird
The men who have lilled the major
ity of county ullicos for the last 17
years have come from outside of
Canyon City.
Tho commissioners as I have be
fore stated have control of the coun
ty business and are elected for the
purtoBo of watching over the peo
ple's money, and chosen by the
people for the Kisttion in conse
quence of their lltness for that par
ticular vocation. Ami a iioint of
fact is, as any one will sou from an
examination of thu records of the
county, that but one commissioner
has been elected who resided in Can
yon City for more than twenty years.
And the i ommissioiiers who now
run the business of the county and
are rosKiisiblc for tho corruption if
thcro is any, of the olliccrs whom
they superintend, are Henry Davis
from Long Creek and Henry John
son fioni John Day.
And only two pernios now hold
ing ollice in this county were resi
dents of Canyon City precinct at
the time of their election those are
the sherill' and county treasurer.
The condition of all'nira us fur as
tho ollicors nro concerned are tho
same as they have been for tho last
eighteen years.
The people who live in the dilfer
cnl nrccincts of the county havo
Ik-cii elected to ollice and many j
when elected came to tho county
seat to reside at least the treastir- j
er, sherill' and county clerk.
Hut the author of "A false do hi
nient" mentioned seems to consider
that the location of the town is the
cause of the indebtedness of the
county and the corruption in ollice, I
and tdat the atmosphere of Canyon
City is so iiolltitcd that no man can
lie elected to ollice and attend to
business in Canyon City without
being a rascal and a fraud if not a i
thief. That immediately usin
breathing the atmosphere of the j
place he lieoonic-i tainted with the
disease of dishonesty, and falls into
the "stinkHit" even tnough hos-hould
come from Long Creek.
Now 1 will conclude by Maying J
that this kind of a sta!einent and
in fact the whole article headed "A
false statement" apcars more like
the ravings of a madman than the
writing or a man who is working for
the jveople's good. The county scat
was located at Canyon City by the
vote of the jieople about twenty-six J
years aeo. The olliccrs who havo 1
liail the places of trust and con
trolled our county business for the
last twenty years, Cameron, Cozart,
Win. Luce. Vrank Wallace, Ollleer,
Damon, Wollinger, Van Horn,
ranee, Tureman, McGowan, Mc
Kinnon, Meador, Mellaley,
Henry Davit", Henry Johnson, Max
cy and Ha.eltiue, may ho somewhat
corrupt, they not being residents of
Canyon Gity, but I don't think that
thev have ever been stiHpicioned of
robbing the C. S. Ma'l.
