Umatilla County farmers who are interested in the passage of a just
and equitable herd law, desire to call attention of all farmers and the voters
of Umatilla County generally, to the Umatilla County Herd law which will
be found upon the ballot November 2.
A herd law was enacted by the 1919 legislature. Much objection was
raised to.it Later the Attorney General of Oregon, in a written opinion,
held it was unconstitutional. We desire to sav THAT THE HERD LAW
WHICH IS TO BE VOTED UPON NOVEMBER 2 IS NOT THE HERD
LAW WHICH WAS HELD UNCONSTITUTIONAL. It is a law initiated
in Umatilla County by Umatilla County farmers and taxpayers to be ap-
V plied to Umatilla County alone. It has .ip criminal feature : that is to say:
