A COURT
LA GRANDE WILL GIVE UNION
COUNTY A NEW BUILDING.
Bonds to Be Voted at Coming Elec
tion Will Be .for the Purpose of
Building a Court House for La
Grande, to Be Presented to the
People, If the County Seat is Re
moved to That City.
Ia Grande, March 9. Whilo the
city will vote on $25,000 bonds, for
the ostensible purposo of building a
city hall at the coming election, the
real purptse Is to build a hall suita
ble for a court house, to be presented
to the county, In case tho county seat
Is moved from Union to La Grande.
Tho main objection to the removal
of tbo county seat has been that tho
cost of a new court house would be
a heavy load on tho taxpayers, and
to avoid this objection In the coming
county-seat removal campaign, this
city proposes to presont to tho coinr
ty a now building suitable In every
way for a court house.
If the county seat Is not removed
to this city, the hall will servo as a
city hall. It will bo built in a sub
stanlal manner to cost at least $25,-
000 and will be a much more Impos
ing building than tho present coun
ty court house at Union.
