OlIIt ItOTTKN MAIL 8EKVICK.
We notico that our exchanges from
nil parts of the country nro a unit in
condemning the manner in which the
mail service is conducted and all agrco
that it is not worth while to depend
upon tho mails any more. If this is
a result of one years republican man
agement what may we not expect
after three years moro of it? It ia tho
most rotten management that tho
country has over known and the rot
tenness eccms to be equally distribu
ted from Postmaster General Wanna
makor down to every brainless and
conceited snipe who does duty as
postal clerk on tho various lines of
railroad. It is about time for tho news
papers to tako the matter, in hand and
vcntilato tho wholo disgraceful system.
Thk Scout has commenced and will
do what little it can. Why it should
take mail matter four days to get from
Union to Island City, Summervillo
end Elgin when there is a daily 6er
vico between tho places is a mystery
to us. Thk Scout is mailed at this
oflleo and sent out of Union every
Thursday and there is no reason why
tho people of tho above named places,
and in fact, the pcoplo throughout tho
cnliro country should not receive it on
Friday. Tin: Scouts for our subscrib
ers in tho towns in tho lower end of tho
Vttlloy and Wallowa county just fdl
ono mail sack. This sack has noth
ing else in it and is marked in plain
letters "La Grande." Now tho fault
is just here: Tho postal clerk on tho
cars docs not throw the Back oil' at
La Grande or tho La Grando post
master purposely keeps tho papers in
his oflico for sovcral days. Wo give
tho wholo gang fair warning that wo
intend to loeato the blame where
it belongs if wo have to employ a do
tcclivo to do it. Our readers through
out tho country shall got their papers
on Friday or wo will know tho
reason why tlioy do not.
It is of eommon'occuronifor tholaw
regarding nuisances to bo vioii00
either through thoughtlessness of the
parties tis to tho rights of their neigh
bors or on account of their ignoranco
of tho law. This is not right, and for
tho health and well being of tho pco
plo at largo, the law should bo rigidly
enforced. Wo nro consiantly in re
ceipt of letters of complaint from va
rious parts of tho country. A lottor,
winch is before us from Eug lo valloy,
"A groat many cattle and other
stock died in this valley tho past win
tor, estimated at COO head of cattle
nlono. Many parties havo dragged
tho carcasses to tho back of their own
farms, leaving them on thoirown land,
but near tho rcsidonco of their neigh
bors, eo that the dead animals aro
becoming nn intolerable nuisanco. I
havo been requested by n number of
citizens to write you and ask what
steps aro necessary to bo taken to
abate tho nuisance, as present condi
tion aro not only vory disagreeable,
but will probably provo very unhealthy
for tho residents of tho valley.
I eo by Hill's code that tho nui
sanco may bo abated by action in cir
cuit court, but if wo aro compelled to
wait for that court's action couio of
us will be compelled to movo to get a
breath of fresh air."
In order that all may bo acquainted
with tho provisions of tho law cover
ing cases of this kind wo publish it, in
full, below :
Sue. I. If itny )eion or pontons shall
put nnv dead nnitnab, cnrciiMi. or art
thcicofor any otlior doleterioim Mihstance,
Into any well, or into any Mining, brook or
branch of running water, of which uso is
iniuluof for doini'.HIo purposes, every per
son so oU'endlng xluill. on conviction there
of, ho lined in any .sum not less than three
nor moro than ilfty dollars.
.Si:c. 'J. If any owner or owners, occupier
or occupiers of any (daughter house, or of
any prcinhes where hogn, hcevui, or other
aniniiilrt arc olniightered, ahall permit tho
Mimu to remain unclean, to the annoyance
of the people of this state, or any of Ihein,
every person m oH'cnding shall ho lined for
Mich otluuai' any sum nut loss than live nor
moro thiol llfty dollars; and If wld nuisance
ho not removed within live ilavs thereafter,
it shall ho deemed a second ollenso against
tho provisions of this net, ami every like
neglect of each succeeding llvo days there
after bhall ho considered an iiiltlltlonal of
fense against tho provisions of this act.
Bi:c. !l. If any person or peixins shall put
nuy part of tho carcass of any dead animal
into any river, creek, pond, rond, street,
nllov, lane, lot. Held, meadow, or common,
or if the owner or owners thereof shall
knowingly permit tho hiuno to remain in
any of llio aforesaid places, to the injury
of tho health, or to tho nuiie-iinco of the
cithsens of this state, or any of ;thein,
every perron no offending shall, on eonvle
Hon "thereof, bo lined in any Mini not less
tlmn two nor more llian twciity llvo dol
lars, ami every twenty-four hours during
which said owner limy permit tho samo to
remain thereafter ehall bo ducined an ad
ditional olloiiso ngaliiDt tho provisions of
Theiik nro Ecvcral excellent water
powers in tho city of Union that would
bo utilized if they could bo purchased
nt any reasonable figure. The parties
who own thoAinworth IJrnzec power
nsk if 10,000 for it which places it out
of the reach of most manufacturing
companies. They value it at that
price when they arc asked to sell, but
when the abscseor interviews then the
value drops lo about five hundred or
a thousand dollars. This is not rigl
and wo call tho attention of tho assessor
and tho county board to the matter,
and ask that this and all other property
of a like character be assessed at its
true valuo as tho law directs. We
shall, probably, havo occasion to
olludo to this subject ngain.
It seems that Justices of tho Pence in
this county are very direlict in tho dis
charge of their duty. They shall, onco
n month report to tho county treasurer
all money received on fines and salo
of cslrays. Vory few of tho Justices of
Union County have done this although
they havo been notified more than
onco by tho treasurer to do to. Their
refusal to comply with the law in this
matter makes them subject to inves
tigation by the grand jury. Doubtless
considerable sums of money have been
collected in this way which should bo
in the county treasury and not in the
pockets of the Justices.

Pine has been much moro fortunnto
than her sister vallev of Eagle in loss
of cattle, yet the long protracted winter
has caused quite a loss of stock here.
Wo havo heard n number of t lie
patrons of school complaining and it
tiiis with just cause that the school
moncv Id expected for winter schools
and young clnW'Jr and those living at
some distance aro UiCiC'fV deprived of
tho benefit of school. Only Q)W who
has over spent a winter nmid tho mows
of Pine, knows it to bo the easo that
schools here in winter cannot bo of
benefit except lo older pupils and those
who reside very near. Our tclmol
hoiiECs are not always centrally located
and wo know of parents hero who
would liko to tend their children to
school, but living from one, two and
thrco miles from the school house can
not possibly do so in winter.
Tliero seems to bo a number of un
thinking perirons hero who allow some
of the runners of La Grando who nro
in our midst lo do their thinking for
them and others wlio have toiiiu imag

tho removal of the county teat to La

buildings. Somo of eouiec who haw
no moro judgement than to vote for
tho lemoval are non-taxpayers and
don't euro how thoy help create taxes
for other people, but even thoy are
voting against their own introtits if
they expect or hope in years lo eomo
to pay taxes in this county. Soino
portons who allow their prejudices to
overcome their reason seem to think
that they havo n grudge to vent against
the town of Union; if they have any
grudgo it must be against the county
ollleials, and not against a town that
happens to bo their place of rcsidonco
for their term of olllce, ami county
ollleials aro going to be and do the same
whether in Union or La Grande, but
taxes will not. Some heio who are
talking loud in favor of La Grande as a
county seat do not even know
where the town is Minuted, Wo heard
of ono putty head who when told that
Union was nearly centrally loeateil
in respect to locality and agricultural
rescourees, and asked where La Garnde
was "didn't know Vposed it was some
whoro in Grande Hondo valluy." Such
ignorance it is to bo hoped, however, is
the exception and not the rule.

A Statement From Eagle.
New Uisidoe, Mnrch 31, 1890.
En. FrovT : Phase allow me n. small
space in your valuable paper in which
to make n few statements of facts.
Having just been informed that I
have been trying lo get a license in
Union to marry n nieco of mine, I will
state that there is not ft word of truth
in any euch talk, as I hnvo never said
a word to nnv one on tho subject.
Surely' our worthy county clerk, Mr.
Xeill, would bo tho proper person to
apply to for a license, and ho can tes
tify that I hnvo never intimated any
thing of the kind to him. And as to
the slander that is in circulation in
regard to our character, I can testify
it is all utterly false, and if necessary
I will defy Oregon to establish a better
character limn each ono of us has.
