:inil put it into ell'eet at once. They desire
to make .some move in the matter, very
-non, as the present contract for keeping
tin; county poor expires in September, and
if any change is made, the new order ol
things should go into ell'eet Immediately
thereafter. They hesitate somewhat in the
matter, not knowing the sentiments of the
people in regard to it, although well con
vinced in their own minds of the desira
bility of a change. An expression of tin
opinions of interested residents of the
county, through the papers, would proba
bly not be amiss at this time, and any such
will be given the free use uf our columns
to ventilate the subject.
Tin: Coi'nty TitUAsuitKi!, The article in
the Sentinel last week, concerning K. C
Hruinard, treasurer-elect of this county, is
not correct, and has a tendency to injure
.Mr. liraimird in the minds of those who
read it. The facts are llrainarri was Inform
ed by Judge t'raig that he would be requir
ed to give fi'O.OOO bonds, the same as the
present treasurer, and he got the bonds and
presented them for approval, but the new
i.'onunis-iioners having taken their seats,
concluded to raise the bonds of the treas
urer to if3J,0o0 as there was that much cash
m hand in the treasury, which was correct
enough, and directed Mr. llrainarri to get
bonds to that amount, liefore Mr, Drain
ard had time to do so thecoma adjourned,
and that is the reason he is not now atten
ding to the duties of the olllce. His bonds
men are the best men, financially, in the
countv, and he could give bonds as easib
for $100,000 as for$.'W,0O0. lie will nodoub'i
insist on having his salary for his entire
term of olliee.and will probably get it.
It Costs too Miwh. "Can't nflbrri to ad
vertise) it co-it too much." So! so! Why
don't you put your goods into a shed or
back street because it ciMs something for
a nice store in the business part of the town ;
use old lry goods boxes because you can't
nllbrd to put in nice attractive counters:
iut up no sign because signs cost some
thing; spend nothing to advertise your bus
iness because it costs too much? Then
Krowl about hard times because people go
to those who do advertise instead of spend
ing time to hunt you up, Jfo wonder you
can't afford to advertise when you don't let
people know where you are and what you
have to sell. And then your trade is so
Miiull that when ou do have a customer
you aro compelled to put a larger margin
on what he wants or you "can t atlord to
live." Don't envy your enterprising neigh
bors who advertise when you see their
Mores full of customers while yours is emp
ty, but wake up and go and do likewise.

salary, and the recorder elected a Justice of
tho Peace. Treasurer Xeill. now county
clerk, has removed to Union, so his olllce is
vacant. There U a legal question whether
or not the city has either a marshal, recor

running In the streets are a nuisance, there
may possibly be some excuse oirered for it
hv those owning animals in a town of this
nfze. The council will, no doubt, look
at the question from all points, before
legislating upon it. and their conclusion
will probably bv correct.

From the Oregonian wo take the
following: "Governor Moody return
ed yesterday from his trip to the Tine
creek district, ami vas scon by an
Oregonian reporter at tho Ht. Olmrles.
He had been invited to view the new
road from Goose creek to Pine creek
for the building of which tho legisla
ture appropriated -lo.uou, anil con
cerning the expenditure of which
there has been soiuo criticism. Gov
ernor .Mooiiv drove over the roiui,
which is twenty-eight miles in length,
and is of the opinion that the money
has been liiiuciously expended. To
buid a load that length, with all ex
cept a few miles of it on grades, and
with considerable rock work to bo done
and one quite expensive bridge to
build, he thinks would use up the ap
propriation. The road is through and
the workmen mo now coming back
over it and putting on tu mushing
touches. The tournouts uro still to be
built, which vyill require furthur ex
peuiiiture. I no governors visit was
unollicial, he having no control over
tho expenditure of the appropriation,
which was plaoed in the hands of the
commissioners by tho legislature.
Pile commissioners will make their re
port in a few davs. Gov, Moody visit
ed the mines at Pine creek mid
brought away many samples of ore.
Ho says ho is no mining export and
has no idea of the richuosv of the
mines, (hie shaft is down 15(1 feet,
and a considerable amount of rock
has been taken on, of difl'oront leads
and in waiting fur the mill which is
soon expected. Messrs. Tolniau and
Mckorchor have two concentrators
coming Iroin ban prancisco, anil
other machinery will be ready for
putting up about the 1st of the month.
Then we shall expect to seo gold
bricks coining down from Pine creek
by tho cartload."
