When Ore gon wax admitted to the Union, Feb ruary 14, 1H."j!, congress set olf the re gion from the 4-il parallel northward along 117 degree west longitude to its intersection with Snake river, and along that stream up to the liith paral lel, and eastward to the summit of the Kocky mountiiins, mid added it to the territory of Washington, and on March li, lHli;i, that was made a part of the territory of Idaho the greater part, too, by the way. l!y this time 1 think you will see that you can re td your title clear in asserting that l!oi.-b was included in Wasco county between the yours ivbl-4 and 1'ebruary 14, 18.)'.). The Dalles Chronicle recently pub lished the following article on the his tory of Wasco county, prepared by Mrs. C. J. Crandall, who is making a study of the early history of Oregon; Talk of again dividing Wasco county causes one to ask how large was the original old Wasco, veil called the Mother ot Counties? Fitly tine years ttgo, the 1 It ti day of January, iN.11. the territorial legi.-latttm created Wn-co county, consisting of all the territory of Oregon east of the Cascade range. F.astei'n Oregon at that time extendi d to the summit oi the l;cl;y mountain-. It is iutci-esliug to follow the n etes and bounds of this comity oi such gigantic proportions. I'iast ou the Columbia river aud Cue Kith degree near Wallula, cros.-ing the Snake river near tlie mouth of Salmon river, on through the stale of Idaho with (jrangevilJe and Mount Idaho on the Oregon side, crossing the Hit ter Root mountains, into Montana the re gion of the Silver liow country perhaps ueur iiutte City, which city stands i n a crest of the Kocky mountains near the 40th parallel. Thence sout herly along the summits of the Kockies.cut ting olf the southwestern corner of the Yellowstone l'ark, and quite a chunk out of the western side of Wy oming, intersecting the 42d degree near the South Pas.-, through which was the old emigrant road ; thence west on the 4A1 degree to the Cascade : mountains, having for the southern j boundary part ot Wyoming. Utah, Nevada and the Eastern half of Noith-1 eru California. For five years .Wasco' county remained this great size, until the admission of Oregon to the Stale hood, February 11, lh.iil, when the bounds of Oregou were delini d as v e know them. That part of Warco coun ty east of the Snake river and west of 'the Rocky mountain) and between the i 4tth and I'id degiees was annexed to I Washington territory, and live yeais ; later liecauie Southern Idaho. W hy congress b&x lit to cut Oregon down j aud make Washington territory, al ! ready so large, does not appear. 1'er ' haps there were axes to grind in those j days. Major Rains of the Fourth in fantry, stationed at The Dallta the kj- winter of !-j,cpnsod the establish ment of the county, not only on ac count of its f-'"d -i.e, but that there were only thirtv -the white inhabi tants in the v hole county.
