CARING FOR THE POOR.
Present Plan May Be Changed Con
tract System Under Considera
The matter of caring for Umatilla
county's poor Is now agatatlng the
minds of the county officials.
It is tho general opinion of tho
county Judge and commissioners that
it is costing the county too much to
keep the poor. For tho past several
years the cost of running tho county
poor farm has been from $6000 to
$0000 annually and one year tho ex
penses ran above the last figure. This
Is thought to be moro than tho coun
ty should be compelled to pay and a
remedy Is sought for.
In Washington' the caring for the
poor is let by contract and the low
est bidder gets the contract In
Walla Walla county, with a much
larger city than Pendleton and almost
as many people outside of the city,
the cost last year for caring for the
indigent was only a little above
Why there should be such a differ
enco In the cost of caring for the un
fortunate poor In the two adjoining
counties is the question now upper
most in the minds of the commis
sioners. The matter will be Investi
gated and It is likely that the plan
of caring for the poor by contract
will bo adopted.
