Description Robert D. Carter, Baker City councilor. "An honored citizen of Baker City and a member of the Common Council, was born in 1856 in Cecil county, Maryland, where he remained until his18th year. In 1876 he moved to Baker county, and became engaged in stock raising and six years later he bought an interest in the butchering establishment of P. Miller, in which he is still interested. Their shop is a model of neatness, and the trade they enjoy speaks for itself. Mr. Carter has been a life-long democrat, and takes an active interest in politics. In 1890 he was chairman of the democratic county committee. and again in 1890. He is married to Miss C. M. Sprague, of British Columbia, and has two children."
