feeing any of its "pet law; ore" and did
not iciortto the courtw to compel him
to perforin hii legal dutieH, while I
have not the loat doubt but the aver
age tax-payer will ceiipure the court
for not doing to. Tho Gazette nays
that "'loino of thene parties have re
ceipts for their tnxoa from former fdier
ilPs, Knniu i if which are from Uoodall."
Yoh, two poll tax recoiptu have been
taken up by the tax collector and
shown to me, which have paid to the
county treasurer, though I did not got
that two dollar, for I alwayn tettled
, with the county court by Htubs of ic
ceiptR J had given. That in not a very
bad showing for four yoars iih assessor,
in fact I am not nnhntucd of tho record,
and 1 will ay that theic is not n nhor
ill' or aNHceHU' in tho State of Oicgon
that can idiowit bolter record.
Tho Oa.i tie eeniK to have found a
"mare's nest" in the asseinent of my
laud. Jt hays my 200 acres of land ia
nsfiepKedator.lv !?")()(); when land on
each wide of mine is as-sowed much
higher. I regret tot-ay that no land in
iiHscss'oel to me, tor tho Himplo reason
that 1 own none, but 1 am assessed on
improvement and limber culture
claim for $1,000. My wife is assessed
on 200 ncus of land, SfCOO, of which'
.100 acres in mountain land, with all
tho best timber cut oil", and which has
been contested by tho U. S., tho result
of which in yet uncertain. Tho other
'10 acres is nut very good land and has
but little improvement on it. Jlow is
it that all Iheso facts are known to Mr.
Hamilton? They aro shown on the
tax list in the sheriff's olliee. Hut as
much as be disregards the truth, I am
u littlo sniprised that he should touch
upon this tax matter, in view of his
own conduct concerning tho payment
of taxes. On the deliinitiont list U a
tax against Saho Choato for 18S(i, on
land soli to Choato by Hamilton as
agent that did belong to I'umphrey.
Choato claims to have paid his tax for
ISSli in sumo of the eastern states, and
says Hamilton agreed to pay, which
Hamilton admits, and claims that he
paid the taxeV on (ho money for which
tho place was gold, ilis assessment
fo'rlS8( shows that ho was assessed on
$1000 in Money, which is all that any
of the family paid that year, when the
deed rceiid shows that ho received
$1,800 for tho land sold to Choato, lie
will neither pay it himself nor collect
it from Choato, an 1 tho county has ro
coived no tax from this land for the
year 188(5. Tho Gazette also says that
Thomp Carroll and Ooodall went to
inspect niine county bridges, with Car
loll'a team, and that while Carroll re
ceived only $8.00 in count v warrants,
Goodall received $20.00 in coin. This,
like every other charge it has made
against me, is a faUehood. This dip
was to inspect the bridges of tho coun
ty, to bo used as testimony in tho suit
with Wallowa county, as J ml go Wal
ker hebl that the bridges of Union
county i-hould bo estimated in tho ad
justment of the division of indobUd
noss. Vo examined neavly all tho
bridges of tho county and woro three
days, and until lato in tho night of the
third in making tho trip, using nit
team and buckboard. Mr. Carroll re
ceived $D.00, 1 paying all tho exponses
of tho trip, which wero $0,00. Tho
county allowed mo my money back
and nothing more. In all my travel
ing, looking afbr the repair and build
ing of roads and bridges, of which 1
did considerable, and 1 believe the
county is larguly the gainer thereby, I
havo not roooiwnl one cent for my
timoortho u.o of my tom. I havo
only asVo I flic court to ny me back
my actual oxju'iihoti. I havo rccoived
nothing which wan not pasted on by
tho court ; nothing hut legal compen
sation. Come and two my bills, Mr.
Eukloy, and every onu else, and I will
tako pleasure in exhibiting thorn. Will
Mr. Hamilton say as much? By the
way, the printer left out enough of
Mr. Hamilton's fee bill in my last let
ter to hpod it. and 1 w'uh every voter
could nv thi bill before voting. Hut
thoro Inn 'orm a wonderful change
in tho th-rifl" oAloe lately. Mr. Ham
ilton's bill prt wilted to the court just
adjourned, la let down vary materi
ally from the on prosuutod to the
cnurt just preretxling it, and iljie will
stick to Hint bill iw a criterion" 1 Hlutll
think that this dicusMon bus roatiltod
in some good.
That tax of Shelton's. Oh yes I Mr.
Hamilton well knows that Sholton has
claimed to have paid it all the time,
but had mil-placed the receipt, and
Hamilton knew it all the time, and
has repeatedly asked me lo have it
cancelled, which J have refused lo do
without eid. nee of payment, by which
the county could recover oil' the sher
iff who colli ch d it. The publication
of thi-t tax with the rest of (he delin
quents, was omitted upon the promiie
of Mr. Shelton that he would havo the
tax receipt stubs searched, and if they
did not show the payment, ho would
pay it, and Hamilton knows that is
still on tho delinquent litl. In regard
to the Scout rublishing Company's
tax, Mr. Hamilton very well knows
that tho original na.-ostmiont sheet
showed that the asses.-or bad made a
mistake in his footings, which made
tho aei-essablo property of the company
some three timet) greater than it should
havo been. Ho knows well, tco, that
the assessment wheel was taken into
the Bhoriir'soflico some IS or 20 months
ago, whence it has mysteriously disap
peared. Wo did not all lemember tin.'
correct footings alike. Mr. Jones and
Hamilton thought it less than I did,
anil they finally settled it according to
their best recollections. Now Mr. lick
ley, tho publishing of that delinquent
list was let lo tho lowest sealed bidder.
Tho Gazette says I reduced tho assess
ment of tho Oregon Gold Mining Co,
without being asked. Tho board of
equalization reduced it upon the pre
sentation of fads by their agent, to
wit: that thev had made an expendi
ture of, I think, $100,000 or over, and
would havo to expend several thousand
dollars more before they could realize
anyth'ng on their investment, if then.
By so doing they had MVen employ
ment lo many men and teams; crea
ted a market for coutiderable produce,
and thereby put considerable money
in circulation in the county, as well as
adding much to tho wealth of the coun
ty, and that tho whole euterprisq was
at least somewhat in the nature of an
experiment, which might prove a fail
ure, in which case tho whole invest
ment would be a dead loss. In iow
of these facts the board believed the
county could well afford to b' liberal
with them tho lir&t year, thus giving
them encouragement, as (hey wero de
veloping our mines, and, wo venture
tho assertion that there Js not a hoard
in tlio State that would not, under tho
cirdunp-tanccs, have done the sumo
thing, and justly too.
Now. Mr. Kditor, 1 think I have giv
en sullieient facts and I will substan
tiate every one of them to satisfy
any reasonable person that A. N. Ham
ilton, shoiilf of Union county, has not
the least regard for truth whatever,
and is wholly unfit for the responsible
olllco which ho has so incompetently
tilled, and is tilling, and wants to t-o
incompetently till another two ye.irs.
1 do not ask, or expect, nor do I wish
anyone to bo intluenced by what 1
have written, in voting, without inves
tigating these facts for themselves.
Oh, ye! 1 came near forgetting
those county orders, which tho Gazette
says 1 ordered tho deputy clerk to
draw. In that onto, Mr. Noill, tho
clerk, was conlined to his bod and was
notable to nuiko out his bills. I knew
tho county wan owing him a cousidern
amount. lie sunt iuo a message to
authorize his deputy to draw a small
amount. 1 did so. I know not, nor
was it any of my hnsines to whom he
sold it, or what the deputy clerk wrote
on tho stub, but 1 do veuturo to wiy
that the Gaictie'e vert-ion of it u not
true, and that I can piovo (he tenth of
my assertion by tho deputy himself.
The law loquires tho heritf to write
tho date of receipt ujku tho buck of
each warrant paid on Uxess, thitt in
tercut may be stopped at that date, al
so to settle with thu treasurer by his
tax receipt stuhi), and to (lie with tho
county clerk his tax receipt stubs at
tho .Inly settlement, neither of wlrich
bus ho over done, though ho has fre
quently been asked so to do. How
will he excuse himself for hit wilful
nogloct to comply with th plain re
quirements of the law? Now, Mr. Ed
itor, have I not nmtieatel all 1 bit oil'
Who is the "bnll.headed ignoramus? '
