VOTE DOWN COUNTY
' DIVISION SCHEMES
Details Involved in Formation
, of New. Counties Unknown
Voters cannot inform' themselves on
the many local details involved and
accordingly it will be their general
decision to vote "No" on the entire
list Tnis is the opinion of the Morn
ing Oregonian Inj'ts, issue ot June" 2,
"Nine county division schemes are
bidding for enactment under the init
iative, in 'imitation of Hood j River
county's success two years ago, and
the endjB not yet. Here is direct leg
islation gone to seed and disseminata
ing trouble through the fair expanse
"Latest is Deschutes county, pre
senting a petition to the secretary of
state and asking to be carved 'out of
tne no"hwest part of Crook county.
Umpqua," Williams and Nesmitb, with
overlapping boundaries, seek inde
pendence . from Lane and Douglas
counties. Umatilla county is ' wrest
ling with the ambitious schemes of
Orchard and Hudson. Clark desires
separation from Grant, Otis from Mal
heur and Harney. A strip of Clack
amas seeks annexation to Multnomah.
"Politicians, office-seekers and ambi
tious little towns are. putting up these
j county partition schemes. More
counties will provide additional of-
i ficial daces
and ' other natronaee
They will also make higher taxes and
more trouble for property owners. '
n Is reaching a point in Oregon
; where tne electorate will feel obliged
' to vote uniformly.. against, all these
new counties. The voters cannot in
form themselves on the many local
details involved, in ordet to legislate,
therefore they are likely to take the
view that their safest action will be
that of voting "No" on the whole
bunch.'" 5, :.
Oregonian Comment. '. '.
The Oregonian comments gain-on
the sen erne in its issue of June 28:
. "A tenth scheme for county, divis
ion appeared for initiative enactment
next November annexation of a piece
of Washington county to Multnomah.
These county questions' are proper
subjects for legislative attention where
they can be studied on their merits
and be amended and adjusted to shit
local needs. The great trouble with
the. initiative measures Is that each
and all of them emanate from a spec
ial interest. No element should ever
be allowed to frame laws regardless
of other elements of the population,
Tet that Is what they undertake to do
when taey refuse to take their bills
before the legislature and insist on
enacting them by the 'direct' method,
Lawmaking is one of the oldest of
the affairs of men and ages of exper
ience have proved the superiority of
legislation by delegates Instead of by
the mass. Delegated, representative
government is the most triumphant
lesson of history." .
