THE WEEKLY OREGON SCOUT.
TJXION, OREGON, SAT., SKI. 10, 1885.
Last week's Issue of the Argus con
tained one of the most peculiar speci
mens of logic it has ever bo awr lot
to meet with. In nn arKcto rotative
to the proposed road to 9 Pare cresfc
Initios it says: ""While th construe
Hon of this road will bdncfit a very
tow of our citizens who wish to visit
the mines of what advantage will
Bitch a road be to the tax-paver who
lnust put up the coin for its construc
tion? Thcro was a petition presented
hero for jignatiircs, during the last
month, simply asking that tho Coun
ty Court should lay out and open such
liroadj and our people were genially
informed that it was an exceedingly
harmless matter, merely Intended to
show the aforesaid court how earnest
tho people word in Wishing such a road
built. How many of those who
signed that petition would have done
so had they known that its real pur-
poso Was td get an appropriation of
S2,000 or more of the county funds
which means hidrc taxes to tho alrca
Uvcnorntdusrato?" Lucid, indeed,
hurt very flattering to the petitioners
at La Grande, to say substantially of
them that they signed tho petition
''mciclytd bIiow how earnest they
Were in wishing such a road built, but
if they hadkndwn it would bo btiilt,
they wduld ilot have signed it. " Tho
above jibbcrish Would be inexplica
ble we're1 it not for tho heavy argu
hiont against tho road, generated in
tho hCad-picco of tho chief scribe of
lhat paper and expressed as follows i
J 'And this all done simply Id make

tho opinion that tho scnslblo pco

ho petitioners for tho. road, at that

if tho County Cotirt should appro

ipptoprlatlon inado for Unit, tlfty
housand ttollurs would not bo out of

,wo pr three thousand dollars will bo
