fTHE OFFICE OF
Pendleton. March 19th. (To the
Editor.) I have noticed for some
time that your paper has been as
, advocate of two of the most Tltal
j factors In the "future progress of
j this state, viz: Irrigation and good
J roads, both subjects have been pret
: ty thorougb.lv discussed through the
press, and the people, with one nc
jcord, seem to realize the necessity
of earnest, prompt and well-directed
.action on both questions,
i It will probably be the duty of the
' next legislature to enact some new
laws governing these" matters and
revise some old ones to work In har
As both subjects come within the
province of civil engineering to a
great extent it might be well while
these questions are in the embryo,
to examine the laws prescribing the
duties of the office of county sur
veyor. ! Present Status Is Trifling.
As the law now stands that office
Is of very little benefit to the people,
and none whatever to the incum
bent. The legislature of 1901 passed
an act prescribing the duties of

To begin at the beginning. I be- survey
of the above subjects and furnish
evidence of good moral character, he
should be commissioned a state en
gineer for life, and as such he would
be eligible for the office of county
surveyor or deputy. Civil engineer
ing is one of the learned professions
and the sooner it is recognized by
law and placed on proper footing. i
the better for both the public and.
the profession. '
The county snrveyor should be
paid a fair salary, commensurate i
with his duties, the fact that he has

books and books of reference as well
as team and conveyance to carry
him around, should not be lost sight'
of. He should turn over to the coun
ty treasurer all fees received by him
for official surveys for private par
ties, except mileage fees.
He should be ex officio county road
master and should constitute one of
the viewers in the laying out of new
roads. He should be a member of
the county board in the considera
tion of all matters of public improve
ments. Properly Define His Duties.
It is impossible here to define all
his duties in detail, sufficient to say!
that he should be entrusted with all I
that comes within the province of j

an additional expense, but would in-!

same cost It is ceitainly no boast!
