That township line is labelled on Oregon Malheur county maps as the 
Seventh Standard Parallel South (of the Willamette Base Line at 
45°31'11"N, so 38°31'11"N, used with the Willamette Meridian for the 
surveys of Washington and Oregon Territory).

So that portion could be described as Malheur county N of 7th Standard 
Parallel S of the Willamette Base Line.
