THE COUNTY SEAT QUESTION.
Strong Appial to tho Intolllccrcj of
Union County Tr.xpay.ira.
A resident of tho Siinelritlo writing
to tho tSmnmcrvillo Annotuior, of lust
wook, showd tip tho county neat (situa
tion in itn trno light. Head what ho
"TI16 pooplo of tho Kidgo woro Hour
ly nil treated to 11 copy of thu La (Jrantlo
Gazotto last weok for which they return
tliunks. Thin largo aiipply of Gazettes
is tsont out to tho taxpayers for their
nonoiii, so 1110 uazouo says, nut, is
nothing but a largo amount of bait
fejr tho purpcjso of feeding suckers.
Tho Ga.otto attempts to give somo
reasons why tho county seat should bo
removed to La Grande, 0110 of which
is that La (Jrando is tho most aecessi-
bio point in tho county. Let us koo
how it will bofor.Suminervillo. When
Hunt's road is completed wo will havo
direct connexion with Union, anil to
reach La Grando by rail wo will bo
compelled to go on Hunt's road 1"
sennostaliou that may bo built on tho
Jtidgo,. ml change euro, and peHibly
bo detained euvcrnl hours. Jt is
sure fact that we will bo etompcllcel
go to La Grando with a team, as now,
while it will take but a fuw minutes to
reach Union. Jt is evident that La
Grundo is doing now ns in the past,
utterly ignoring Htiinmerville'sinleicht.
Another reason given is La Grande's
population. Js a Grande's popula
tion any reason for increasing thu taxes
of this county? Wo know that Jiii
Grando bus a largo population and wo
also know that Kunimervillo pays far
inoio tax per voter limn La Grnntlo.
Lu Grande's population u made up of
loafers, tramps eomo wage) oarnorj',
ballot-box Htud'ors, very few taxpayers
and last but not least hired voter.
The court house has boon declared
eliingorous by tho people of Lu Grande,
yet you muy soo them passing through
tho court hntipo witli impunity. That
proposed bond to indemnify tho poo
plo of Union county against oh ro
minds tho peoplo of Sumineivillu of
H H & M M CI H H m ft H R 8 ft
j tho time La Grundo Kent, hero to ne
gotiate for depot grounds. At Unit

I ul..,l-,,..'u r.l,a ,i.wl !o (I,,. :, ,,!,.,
n.i,nv;. a iuluoj tb.ivi in ti.u i.iiiu.iiuivj
bond. After the election, if La Grundo
wins, how easy it will bu for tho sumo
man of gall to lind wine technical
error, and set tho bond aside.
Thoy certainly exhausted Iheir sup
ply of gall when saying to tho tax
payers that taxes would bo less if tho
! county seat was roinoveei to La Grando.
If tho county seat is removed to La
Grando tho county court would bo
compelled to construct now county
builtlings, buy land and pay for re
moving records. If it remains at
Union, do thu taxpayers think that
any county court will build nuw build
ings? If tho property holders of Union
precinct ruled tho county then tho

Tho Gazotto nelvisin tho taxpayers

many. And after tho reading comes
thu thinking. Our advice is lo think.
This enabling act was a dirty sohemo
of La Gruiuto's, If I lie county seat
is moved to La Grando it may enhance
oily property, bunuiit a h.v near La
Grundo and iiioraibo tho taxes all over

vicinity havo elooidod to voto for
