J. O. Thompson, now a residont of
this city, but who still has Interests
iu Sherman county where be lived,
was recognizod by the chuirman and
said that he was in the part of Wasoo
county In 1H!U, at wbluh time it was
cut olf and created luto Sherman
county. The population of this sec
tion at that time. Mr. Thompson
said, was l,0.ri() people and the assessed
valuation 9210,000 and that less than
half of the laud in the now county
was deeded. The F.astorn Oregon Land
company had nil of the odd suotious
in a strip of lund three miles long
that ran the length of the county
which was in litigation and on whlc
no taxes were paid. Hherman oounty's
part of the debt of Wasoo county was
$14,000, which it paid. It also helped
to iinv for the bridge over the les
chutes river and built two roads lead-
lug up to the bridge which cost the
new county f7,OOU. A court house
was constructed costing 10,000 and
three road graders purchased at an
exponseof t,H00. "Hut," said Mr.
Thompson, "at no time since Slier
man county has been created has the
tax levy exceodod that of Wasco
county. The average tor the past
three years has boon 15 mills and the
county ollloinls have always been paid
as much or a littlo nioro than they
could oani lu any other capacity.''
The valuation of property tboio, this
gentleman said, was about one sWth
of its market value, and he exhibited
a tax notice for a quarter suction of
1(10 acres which showed that he was
assessod this yoar on this piece of
land about f J including the poll tax.
and produced evidence to show that
the land was worth iu the open mar
ket li.lOO. Another tax rocolpt which
he had recolved showed that city or
town property was asso'sod on a fair
basis equally as low as farm laud.
II. M. Abbott thou spoke in favor
of the movement, saying that there
had been a full discussion of the ques
tion : that the conconsus of opinion
was for it and that he suggested that
it row be put to a vote of tho moot-
U. J. Howling said that tie was
heartily in favor of it. If the new
county could be run within the limits
of tho estimate of the commluoe,
well and good, but even if it should
oost more ho would still be in favor
of it, as tho benefits to be derived
would outweigh the cost, and It
should be done us a matter of public
After some furthei discussion in
which Mr. Huberts said be thought
every one was sntlsllod and pleased
that a full ami satisfactory talk had
been had on the question of county
division, and which ho was sure had
borne good results, and after a plea
by Mr. Ktaten who had come in late
and had not heard the motion which

WANT WHITE MEN
FOR SECTION HANDS
It is said to be the plan of the O.
H. & N. to displace the Japanese sec
tion men on its road with white men.
The Fast Oregouiau in speaking of
tho matter says:
"If plaits of O. H. A N ollicials are
carried out, every Japanese and Chi
nese laborer on the trucks of that sys
tem will be replaced with a white man
as rapidly as suitable white labor can
There are 2,000 laborers 01 the
trucks of the system including all l's
branches, and in very few places are
white men now employed, Japanese
are iu tho majority on the sections,
while a few white men are worked in
extra gangs doing special track work.
White men with families will be
employed, it is said, wherever possi
ble and thus a permanent class of
track men will be encouraged to set
tle permanently aid remain in the
employ of the company.
Xt Is said that the otllclals nave pre
ferred white men all along If such
could have boon secured In the past.
but owing to the shiftloss charaoter
of the men who applied for this class
of labor end the uncertainty of them
remaining with the position, the com
pany was forced to employ foreigners
who would stick to their jobs.
If white meu are employed It will
mean the construction of many new
living quarters and dwellings along
the lino, as the present bunk bouses
are not suitable for the accommoda
tion of families."

their meats, that it is useless for me to introduce
Wood Bros., our successsors, as their 18 years in
the butcher business in Wasco county has made
them so widely known that un introduction is un
necessary. Being honest, capable business men,
they have the means and ability to rwn a business
as it should be run, and in a way that will be a
credit to our city.
I expect to stay with the new firm for awhile,
and will be glad to see you all at the old stand. 1
will guarantee that you will get just as much meat
for your money, just as courteous treatment and
just as prompt service as can be had in the city.
We will have a full line of everything good to
