that someone asked him what had hap
poned. 'Happened!' said bo, 'why,
boas, doy askod mo things dat hap
pened 'fo I'Bbo'n.'"
"Ono of tho arguments advancod by
tho county division promoters Is
'More counties and a greater Ore

more, tho peoplo generally have no
conception ot local situations as of
footing counties where the cry for
division Is heard. Only about ono In
ton voters would know what they
wero voting for. Therefore, tho best
way Is to voto "No" to all of tho
measures, urges tho Observer:
"Two years ago the peoplo voted to
form tho new county of Hood Hlvor
out of a section ot Wasco county. It
Is safe to say that 90 voters out ot a
hundred had no acquaintance with the
conditions or geography of tho county
they divided. The voters will be asked
next Novomber to do a good deal mora
of thla kind of county butchorlng. Peo
plo who are not nt all acquainted with
tho various territories, wilt be asked
to slice Crook county and make a new
county to bo called Deschutes. It is
proposed to carvo up Lane and Doug
las counties, and constitute tho throe
now counties, Umpqua, Williams and
Nesmlth. Umatilla Ih prey for two
proposod now counties, Orchard and
Hudson. A plcco of Grant county is
to bo asked to mako Clara county,
whllo Harnoy and Malheur may be
diluted off a little to mako room for
Otis. It is really scandalous and only
possible under tho Initiative. Tho
trouble Is (lint tho performance U Just
tommenclng-nnd It 1sTiotca8y"to 5oo
where it will end. Tho best way. the
only right way, la to voto "No" to all
these local measures, ot which tho
petfplo as a wholo hsvo no Informa

bollovoa thoy nro just solflsh schemes
