County Judge Wallace W. Travillion. "Wallace W. Travillion is a native of Cooper County, Missouri, where he was horn January 24, 1849. At the age of 21 he left home coming to Baker County, and became engaged in mining, which occupation, in connection with farming, he still follows. In 1876 he was appointed deputy sheriff, and served four years. In 1880 he was nominated by the Democrats for sheriff, and at the polls their judgment was ratified by the taxpayers. Serving creditably, he was re-elected in 1882. In 1887 he was appointed chief of police of Baker City by Mayor McCord, the first under the new charter, and served two years. In 1894 he was elected as County Judge, and has been re-nominated for the position on the Union ticket. He is one who has made it his sole business to attend to the duties of his office, and is to-day probably the most popular man in the county. In 1883 Judge Travillion was married to Miss C. C. Sonna. and he has two sons." Source: p. 9, Souvenir Edition. Morning Democrat, Bowen & Small, Publishers, May 20th, 1898.
