The Hood River Glacier, Hood River, OR., January 26, 1905, page 2


     Representative Jayne telephoned the Glacier yesterday afternoon that the committee on counties had agreed to report favorable on the bill for Cascade county.
     In the matter of Jefferson county there will be an adverse report.
     The reports of the committee are to be made in the house this (Thursday) morning, and it is presumed that a vote will be taken today in course of the regular order of business.
     Mr. Jayne believed matters looked decidedly favorable for the passing of the new county bill through both the house and the Senate.
     Just what the objections were to giving Antelope her county of Jefferson was not learned, but it is presumed because of the many objections raised within the proposed boundaries of that county.
