THE SUMPTER MINER
THAT PANHANDLE BILL.
Territory Embraced and Other Provisions
of the Measure.
A press dispatch from Salem says that
Governor der Friday evening filed
Grace's bill annexing the eastern part of
Union county, known as the "panhan
die," with the secretary of state without
his signature, and thus the bill became a
law at midnight. There was great pres
sure brought by the people of Union
county to influence the governor to veto
the bill, but passing with the handsome
majority in both houses that it did, Gov
ernor Greer could not see his way clear
in affixing his veto. A large delegation
are here Irom the town of Union and ths
final determination of the governor is a
keen disappointment to them.
The bill for the annexation of the "Pan
handle" to Raker county, In substance, is
Section I. That all that portion of the
state of Oregon embraced within the fol
lowing boundary lines and heretofore a
part of Union county, be, and the same is
hereby made a part of Maker county, to
wit: Commencing at the Intersection of
the township line between township six
and seven south, range forty east, with
Powder river, thence east on said town
ship line to the center of range forty-two
east, theme north to the township line
between townships live and six south,
thence east on said township line between
townships live and six to the Wallowa
county line, thence easterly along the
Wallowa county Hue to Snake river,
thence up and along Snake river to the
mouth of Powder river, thence up and
along Powder river to the place of begin
ning. Section 2 trinsfers tills territory to the
civil and military jurisdiction of Raker
Section 3 orders the clerk of Union
county within thirty days after the act
goes into effect to deliver to the clerk of
Raker county transcripts of all taxes as
sessed, of cases In the Circuit and Probate
courts and also to transfer the original pa
pers in such cases.
Section 4 instructs the county court of
Raker county to let to the lowest and best
bidder the contract for transcribing the
records pertaining to property in this ter
Section 5 provides for the transfer of
school records funds, etc.
Section 6 requires the treasurer of Ra
ker to pay to Union county taxes collected
from the assessment of 1000.
Section 7 provides for the payment by
Raker to Union county in one year the
Panhandle's, share of the Union county
indebtedness, based on the assessed valu
ation of looo.
Section 8 authorises the judge of the
Kighth judicial district to appoint a com
missioner, not a resident of either county,
to act with the county judge ot; Raker
county In adjusting this Indebtedness.
Section 9 presciibes the method to be
pursued should either county desire to ap
peal for tills adjustment.
Prefer Their Old Grievances to the New.
The Transvaal seems to be no nearer
pacification than it was some months ago,
and the prospects for resumption of work
in the Witwatersand mines Is still a dis
tant one. Our London correspondent
writes us that recently some German metal
lurgists in theemploy of the South African
mining companies, and who are now wait
ing in London for a chance to go back to
the Rand, held a meeting among them
selves and passed an abstract resolution
asking tor their old grievances back
again, and condemning their folly in peti
tioning the British government to Inter
fere two years ago. This action proba
bly reflects (he feeling of a good many
people who are Interested In South Afri
can mines. The situation Is serious
enough for many investors who have
money placed In mining companies and
who will most probably have to go an
other year without dividends. Engineer
