HAD THERE BEEN NO ELECTIOX
WHATEVEB. NEW COUNTY
WOULD STILL BE FORMED, BY
SALEM, Or., Feb. 2. (Special.)
According to Representative For
bes and other attorneys who bave
given the question consideration,
there is no doubt whatuver that the
passage of the Deschutes county bill
ends tor all time, litigation directed
against the county's legal existence.
The bill serves a double purpose.
It both validates all the steps taken
In the recent formation ot the new
county, following the election, and
also actually' creates it as a legisla
tive act. In short, had there been
no election at all, say the attorneys,
the passage ot House BUI No. 135
would have created the new county
beyond possibility of legal question.
The recent supreme court decision
In the case of Rose vs. the Port ot
Portland, sets a precedent removing
any question ot the legislature's jur
isdiction in the premises. That de
cision, In effect, declares that cities
and towns are municipalities, but
that counties are not, so that there
