I note what you say about the de sire of our citizens to have the head quarters of the proposed eastern Ore gon federal district located at Pen dleton and It goes without saying that nothing would afford me more pleas ure than to have a district located and Pendleton fixed as the place for holding the court However, every time I appear be fore the committee having this mat ter In charge I am confronted with the statistics that the business of the present district, as they Insist, Is far less than that of many other districts which are not asking for an addition al district. The economical fever stands very high here at present and It seems to be the purpose of each particular committee to keep all expenses, so far as legislation enacted from that committee Is concerned, down to the very lowest possible amount. I am urging this matter upon every suitable occasion,, but, to speak can didly, I have much fear that If Im mediate action Is Insisted upon that we will get an unfavorable report from the house Judiciary committee. I think the chances for Its passage would be very much better at the short session of the present congress rather than the present one. However, If it is the desire of the people that this matter shall be pressed until consideration Is had, I will do my duty along that line, let the result be what it may. Iam very sorry that I cannot speak In more encouraging terms In regard to this measure, but candor prompts me to place the situation before you exactly as I see it. I am told that a . committee from Baker City will be here shortly In re gard to this measure. I am glad to have them come, for they can better realize the situation after having been upon the ground and had a con ference with the committee having the matter In charge. Assuring you that I will let no op portunity pass to say a good word In behalf of the pending measure, I am' Yours very truly. W. R. ELLIS. That the new district bill should fall unless It provides for Pendleton as headquarters is declared by the mem bers of the committee. r mm to have the court meet at Jtaker City would be a lasting Injustice to th people of the district aiiJ they would rather see the proposition wait for fl future congress than to pass In Its present form.
