PACTS REGARDING EARLY FORMATION
W. 11. Peterson, Once County Suj»t. and Auditor
Gives Interesting and Reliable Data
Good Reading for All.
The county board having submitted
| the question of building a new court
| house, and the voters having voted for
[ it with unexpected unanimity, and the
building being in course of construc
tion, the county officers were all look
-1 ing anxiously forward to the time
! when each one could have his own of
At this time Hen K. Snipes had con
cluded to open a bank in KUcnshurg.
I There was no bank in town at that
I time and the only vault was the one
used by ihe county officers, lie said
: that if the county would let him open
up his bank without waiting for the
completion of the court house he would
! only occupy a part of the bank room
; proper, and allow us the full um' of the
back room and as much of the vault as
we might need, giving us free access
to the vault the same as the bank, and
pay all the rents falling due up to the
time the offices were removed to the
'court house. Although the arrange-,
ment would lie inconvenient, the of
| lieers told the county board that to save
the county from paying rent the,\
would try and got along and permit
! the bank to use the building as pro
posed. As soon as the court house was
completed the county officers were re
t moved to it. Thus it will be seen that
] for several years the ollices of the
county ollicials were on wheels.
The board instructed the auditor to
secure the required seals for the county
oflicers. I wrote to a Portland seal
j lil'm that I wanted a seal for the audit
or designed as lo tipify tho three lead
ing industries of the county Stoek
j raising, agriculture and mining. They
prepared and sent the impress of sev
| oral designs, one of which, with a few
changes which I suggested, was satis-
I factory. Not wishing to follow the
long established precedent of hunting
J for a Latin motto, I told Howard C.
| Walters, then a resident of of Kllens- •
| burg, that I wanted to use one from
the Chinook language, but did not un
! derstand it well enough to make the
proper selection. He took the matter
j under advisement and suggested "Close
j Illahee," which 1 had placed in the ,
seal. -Mr. Walters and I prepared a
J design for the probate seal of the
I county. Jn this we perpetrated a joke
ion Walter A. Hull, now deceased, who
j was the first probate judge of tho
co.intv. On the neul we had made for
his ollii.e we had the head of a bull
with glaring eye- an I conspicuous horn-
In tonsideralion of his name, and the
fact that he w.i- extensively engaged
in stock raising, we voted the design a
> happy hit. A few days after I had re
ceived the seal, Walters brought Mr.
Hull in to see it. Stamping the seal
on a piece of paper, I handed it to him.
After examining it closely for a short
time he exclaimed, in the quick jerking
words characteristic of him: "Hedad
boys that's pretty good. How did you
come to think of It?"
The act creating this county provid- 1
ed that the auditor of Kittitas county |
should make a copy of all the records
of all that part of the Yakima records,
required to be kept in Kittitas county,
ft also provided that the settljinent be
tween the counties should be made by
the auditors of the same and went on
to designate bow it should be made.
l:i case they failed to agree they were
to call to their assistance the auditor
of Klickitat county. for his services
j in transcribing the records and making
j the settlement the auditor was to re-j
ceive two dollars per day. After pay-
I in" 4 stage fare back and forth from

1 Yakima, several times in the dead of;
|of winter through lierce snowstorms!
I (one of which 1 think my old friend M.
I M. Damman lias not yet forgotten) and
| paying uiy hotel bills, it may readily j
I be inferred that 1 had not much of my
| per di i.i left to pay for cocktails and
|.m 1 cigars. Fortunately for me, how
• I ver, 1 could do without these luxuries,
buoyed up with the knowledge that I
a was entering upon the discharge of the
, onerous duties of an oltico for which I
wits to receive the princely salary of
three hundred dollars per year. 1
faced the storms and rushed my work.
Mr. 8. T. Munson was the auditor of
Yakima county at the time of settle
; inent. He will he remembered as a
pleasant gentlemanly man, then in the
I tii'st 'stages of consumption, which af
terwards carried him to the grave. We
had no trouble making the settlement
I until wo came to thy valuation of the
| county property in the counties, nor
had we any trouble about the property
in Kittitas, as there was none what
ever in the county. It devolved upon
■ us to value the courthouse at Yakima
! Ci'-y and the Natchez bridge. At this
stage of the game Mr. Munson said he
thought we had best write to the aud
itor of Klickitat county to come and as
sist us in the valuation of the property,
as provided in the- act creating Kittitas
I county. lie said that while he and I
j could doubtless agree upon a fair valu
ation, yet he felt that considering the
statu of mind of many of the people ol
his county, they would be dissatisfied
and he supposed I might also be cen
sured by the people of Kittitas county.
Ho thought it would be best to call in
tint third auditor an relieve ourselves
of the responsibility. 1 told him 1 was
perfectly willing, but disliked to nut
my county to the expense of paying
one half the expenses. We according
ly wrote to (ieooge W. Killson, who
was then auditor of Klickitat county to
come over and assist us. \\ hen he
! came lie looked over the law carefully
\ and said that we would have to value
tin' property without regard to what it
had cost tlie co'.inty. I<i this version
Mr. Munson and I assented. Mr. I ill
son valued the court house at several
hundred dollars less than it cost. \\ e
then went and examined the Natchez
bridge and placed a valuation on it.
The amount of the valuations was
about j.'iUO in excess of the face value
of all warrants issued by the county in
pay ment of same plus the accrued in.
terest on same to date of settlement.

A Socialist Suggestion.
A socialist friend asks an expression
from every socialist in the county as to
the propriety of milking an organiza

of l!Ht4. Tin-: Dawn will very gladly

There was a cry in
the strei ts. People
rushed from tl eir
doors onil strainer
their eyes on the
:i>4 for life.
Even the poor, pant
ing sufferer in the
sick room was for
gotten while the fam
ily gazed breathless at this strange
t-agedy of the air. Then the}- went back
to the sick room to tell of the terrible
struggle for life they had just witnessed.
It did not occur to them that under their
very eyes a more terrible, more pathetic
struggle was going on daily.
There can be nothing more pitiful
than the struggle the consumptive
makes against disease. The greatest
help in this struggle is gained by the
use of I)r. l'ierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery. It cures obstinate coughs, weak
and bleeding lungs, emaciation, and
other aihn uts which if neglected or
unskillfulh treated find a fatal termina
tion in com unptiou.
