THE- NEXT PRESIDENT
Senator Allison Favored by
Clarkson of Iowa.
REED THE CHOICE ' OF SQUIRE
Good Union to ' Believe That Olaey
Will Soeeeed the I ate Secretary
Nw York, June 4. General J. S.
Clarkson, republican national committee
man from' Iowa, in an interview on the
n political situation, has pronounced in
favor of Senator Allison. He said :
"An intelligent observation of the po
litical situation convinces many republi
cans that Senator Allison will be nom
inated at the next republican convention.
I myself am convinced that he will be
the best candidate of the republicans,
and, moreover that be will surely be
elected. I have nothing to say against
the claims of other republicans, but in
travels I have found the very strongest
undercurrent running for Allison. I find
this sentiment just as strong in the East
as in the West.
Senator Allison is sound on all com
mercial and financial questions. Under
bim the tariff would be revised, not on
' high protection lines, but on lines that
. would carry out the great doctrine of
; protection. There would be no up
heaval of the tariff, but it would be sat-'-
istactorily adjusted and the mistakes o)
the present - administration would be
.remedied.. International bimetalism
would also be established under Senator
Allison. He would not appoint any
half-and-half commission to go abroad
on thin great question as did President
Hirrison. International bimetalism
. cannot be accomplished by the appoint-y-rnent
of any such kind of a commission.
Senator Allison would appoint a com
nission composed entirely of inter
national bimetalists, whose hearts and
souls would be in the cause, and when
the foreign nations became convinced
. that such a commission had come to talk
:' to them, the mission would be quickly
successful. - Senator Allison's commis
sion on this subject would mean busi
ness, -and there would be no useless
speeches or tiresome and unsuccessful
"Senator Allison has had a record of 32
yearn iu congress. All that time not a
stain, not a spot, not a reflection of the
minutest character has rested on his
long and honorable career. Ha is a safe
man, and, mark my word for it, he will
be the candidate of the convention."
"Where will the convention be held?

Wheat Almost a Failure In Six Central
Chicago, June 3. The June crop re
pot t of the Orange J add Farmer, pub'
lished this week, based on data up to
May 27, makes the average condition of
-winter wheat 71.5 or 13 points -ebort-of
- last -month, the heaviest crop, in condi
tion ever recorded in a single month
The condition is high on the Pacific
coast, but in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana,
Illinois, Missouri and Kansas the, aver
age is only 61. . According to the report
the total crop in the six states named
will little more than furnish bread and
teed required within their own borders
while the total winter j wheat crop this
year, including the large production of
- the Pacific coast, will not make .enough
to more than furnish bread alone for
the people in the winter wheat belt
states east of the Rockies.

per cent larger than last year. The con
dition is 84, the lowest ever reported for

Kentucky State Convention.
Louisville, Ky., June 5. Republicans
f Kentucky are holding the largest etate
convention today in the history of their
party. The delegates and workers for
W. O. Bradley, for governor' and other
candidates, today claim they are conven
ing as the majority party. They attrib
ute this revolution to the negro question
being no longer an issue and the lines
ing drawn on the tariff and silver
questions. It is thought some repuD-
lit-ans will vote for free silver . and free
trade, but more democrats will vote
against these two planks.
While there is no opposition to Brad
ley for governor, there are eight candi
dates for second , place, and about as
many aspirants for each of the other
places on the ticket. . The Bradley elate
went through iu all seven congressional
district meetipgs, assuring the adoption
of the .gold standard and protection
planks. ' :
The Old, Old Story.
New Yokk, June 5 The World this
morning says : Rumors are current that
there is trouble between . Jim . Corbett
and his wife, and that she has begun
proceedings for a divorce. Mrs. Corbetl's
father, Mr. Lake, wnen seen last, night,
said that he thought the papers in the
ea-e bad already - been . served ou the
pugilist. He would not state the came
of the trouble between his daughter and
her husband. Mrs, Corbett was seen
and refused to say whether or not she
intended to sue for divorce.
"I have nothing to say not , a word.
I will neither deny nor affirm the truth
of the report," she declared. Corbett
was not in the, city and could not be
seen. His manager, William A. Brady,
refused to discuss the matter. ,

folio. Washington, : June 4. There is no
longer any reasonable doubt that the
presiden t has fully determined to ask
Attorney-General Olney to accept the

however, he hasjptated in substance that

Free Oliver Platform. ProbableA
Statue rr the Late Secretary
In Memory of Oresham.
Chicago, June 5, Sculptor R. H
Parks, of tbis city, is to make a bronze
bust or statue of Walter Q. Gresham
Relatives and friends of the dead secre
tary have decided to preserve bis feat
ures and form them In - bronze, but
whether it will be mere bust or a full-
length statue has not been, determined,
The chances are the memorial will take
the form of a statue. This movements
has grown out of the desire to have in
permanent form a tribute to the memory
uf 1 man' whose integrity .and attain
ments contributed a grand page to
national history. To gain one of the
moat, important means to this end' it is
necessary, that the facial . representation
of the late secretary should be perfect in
every detail. In order to get the
measurements necessary for a work of
this kind, Mr. Parks and a representa
tive pt the Gresham family, commis
sioned by Otto Gresham, to take charge
of the matter, paid a visit to the tomb
of the secretary in Oak wood cemetery.
The casket was opened and Sculptor
Parks directed the movements of an ex
pert, whi with a delicate set of instru
ments, took an accurate outline of the
secretary's face arid head. Mr. Parka
then. verified the measurement andmade
a sort of geomt-trical draft on the design.
Many Delegates Attending;, the State
Convention at Springfield.
Spbing.fi eld, 111., JuneS. With every
train today came , large delegations to
the democratic state, convention. : More
people came than any one expected, and
the streets are thronged with , silrerites.
Blue badges .bearing ; the inscription
'Free Silver, ia to 1," : fluttered from
the coast lapels of iiicomers, and many
delegations carried banners proclaiming
a belief in free coinage.
. The. delegations that came in yester
day and last night were up almost with
the sun this morning, and silver speech
es .by enthusiastic believers in free
coinage could be heard in lobbies at all
hotels. Every delegate seemed to be for
the free coinage of silver, and . if there
were any opposed to it they were so. quiet
as not to be soticeable. There is . no
doubt that a radical free-silver platform
wiil be adopted and the democratic party
of this state be committed to that policy.
The Probable Location.
Washington, June 6. The Washing
ton Post prints some gossip regarding
the probable location of the next nation
al republican convention. San Francisco
is more, prominently mentioned than
any city in the race for the next conven
tion prize. ' The Post is disposed to be
somewhat sarcastic about the chances of
the Pacific coast , metropolis. - It says in
part:" " " ''
- "Suppose the next national republican
convention should be held in San Fran
cisco? It is sit id that Chairman' Manley
is earnest in his advocacy of the , far-off
slope city, and. General Clark son, is. very
pronounced , in his support. Just how
the republican national committee
stands is not so well known.
- "San Francisco has sought the conven
tion for many years.' She has sent dele
agations across the .continent to elo
quently plead, with the national com
mittees. The lobbies of the Arlington
hotel have run red and white with Cal
iforna wine, and the headquarters' of the
delegation have been thronged from
morning till night with shouters for San

.Dear friends and Readers of Thi CnaoNicu:
The thirty-first annual meeting of the
grand lodge of. the Btate of Oregon com
menced its sessioq at 1 o'clock, opening
in the subordinate degree.
' We. first listened to the reports of the
grand officers. Grand Chief Templar
Kennedy was unable to be with us, and
sent his report, which was read by the
grand decretory. -He Bummed up the
work of the year, commenting upon suc
cesses acd deploring failure in the work
and made good, suggestions for the com
ing ' yaar. He also : declared Cascade
Locks lodge to be the 'winner of the
prize of officers' regalia,' which he had
offered to tte lodge that would initiate
the largest number of persons during
the months of February,' March and
Aprilv Thus you Bee Wasco county (H
not The Dalles) was ahead. The grand
secretary's report showed that there are
now forty-three lodges in the state,
with 1,870 members. The chief offered
valuable suggestions for the future,
The grand treasurer's report show-d
that there had been' more than $1,100
used in the work during the past year,
The grand superintendent, of Juvenile
Temple showed in her report that there
now fifteen temples in Oregon, with a
membership of 842 She urged all the
subordinate lodges to organize Juvenile
Temples. The grand councilor's report
was helpful as a. councilor's report
should be. The grand superintendent
of lectnre work showed how the lecture
work had been given up early in the
grand lodge year, and the reason why it
Reports of lodges occupied a large
part of the afternoon; and summing
them all up, they showed that the I. O
G. T. work was rather on the' decline
than otherwise in the state of Oregon
Many reasons were giveu for tbis, such
as hard times, lack of interest, the great
number of other organizations; but
with it all there seems to be a bruhter,
more hopeful outlook for the futnre,
- MORNING; SESSION JUNB 5.
After the reading of minutes, the re
port of the committee on the good of the
order was received. Reports from other
committees were then read.

Editor Chronicle: In' the grand
lodge after the election of officers, var
ious questions of interest to the mem'
bers of the order., were brought up and
decisions given on knotty points in con
nection with. the by-laws. Before the
installation of . officers at the evening
session the lodge in a body visited the
buildings of Pacific University and spent
much time in admiring . the,- beautiful
campus and college structures,
: At 8 p. m. the lodge opened in the
grand lodge degree and went into the
subordinate degree, so that members of
that degree coujd enjoy the eveaing

Each officer made. a. short speech to
the lodge and thanked them ior the
honor bestowed.. Under the good of the
order a short and pleasing program was
listened to by the members,
And now comes the most interesting
bit of news for the Good. Templars and
citizens of The Dalles. The grand lodge
was invited to hold its next annual con
vehtion in The Dalles and the Invitation
was accepted, so brothers and sisters iu
the temperance cause, we must bear in
mind that our honor is at stake and we
must give them a glorious welcome. '
One lady delegate rode more than sixty
five miles on a backboard over terrible
roads to make connections with the train
for Forest Grove. The beautiful sun
shine and cool breezes, during our stay
here, seemed to indicate that , nature
vied with the kind people of Forest
Grove to make 'us happf . . We had a
very pleasant visit with our friend Win,
Curtis, who is a student at Pacific Uni
versity. He may be expected home in
about two weeks.
', Yesterday,. was the last day of the
grand lodge, and when the regular busi
ness was completed the time was spent
in an experience meeting. ' .Each mem
ber .present was. asked tc say something
for the good of the order , and many in
teresting and helpful thoughts , were ad
vanced. - The meeting became truly a
love feast, i The only contention during
the . session , was that each person de
clared that they -received the best hos
pitality. But to tell the truth Forest
Grove's hospitality was the talk of all
the delegates and we were all royally
treated. - Many pleasant memories will
centre around our visit to Forest Grove.
We hope that all may go back to their
homes with more enthusiasm 'and love
for our order and its great work, with
more love for one another and a greater
desire to do all we can for the cause of

AN HISTORICAL ROMANCE.
The Iteantlfal Story of nam en and Py
thias Is It a Myth, Tradition,
'. or History?
"Damon and Pythias was written by
John Banim over seventy-five years ago
and first presented in London in 1821
and was from the first a great success.
Mr. Rasmus is an accompalished. actor
and with the help of our best local talent
the production will, undoubtedly be a
the stobt or bamon and fvthias. .
Thetory of Damon and Pythias ia
older than the wonderful story told by
the evangelists. The beautiful myth,
tradition, or history, it matters not
which It is called, is of an event which
antedates the Christian era by a period
of time about equal to that which inter
venes between the discovery of America
by Columbus and the present year..
The reign of Dionyslus, the elder
markets an era of selfishness in the
world's history. Following the example
of a tyrant, his adherents in the Ii-le of
Sicily vied in obliterating from the tables
of their memory every vestige of that
noblest principal of manhood which re
cognizes man's fealty to his fellows.
Damon, a Senator at Syracuse, by his
opposition to Dionysius, in his attempt
ed usurpation of power, was placed under
sentence of immediate death. Pythias
the time tried friend of Damon, be
sought the tyrant to grant him a respite,
that be might, bid a last farewell to
those be lovfd. The denial of bin re
quest was followed by the most striking
exemplification of pure friendship that
has ever illuminatad the pages of history.
Pj tbias offered himself as a hostage for
Damon while he should visit his wife
and child once more before his execu
tion.' The chains were taken from the limbs
of Damon and placed on tbosd of Pyth
ias, Damon was soon at his borne. He
bade his weeping wife and little one an
affectionate farewell ami calls for his
horse in order to return in time to redeem
his pledge to Pythias. He finds that his
horse has been killed by his "servant in
order to prevent bis return, but he se
cures another horse and flies to Syracuse.
In the mean time Pythias has ' been
tempted to escape the doom which seems
to threaten him. ' But no! he insists
upon the terms of the hostage being
carried out to the letter. He exclaims:
"It is sweet to die for those we love I"
The time is fast passing and still Damon
does not appear. The block is erected,
the crowds are gathered in the equare,
the funeral procession is formed, and
Pythias is led forth to seal his friend
ship with bis blood. Does he shrink?
No. Does he falter? No. With sol
dierly and iron nerve he wends his way,
cheerfully to . die for his friend. In
that . moment the clatter of a horse's
hoofs is heard in the distance and soon
Damon falls exhausted at the feet of his
friend. This display of manhood and
true courage led captive the tyrant's
heart, who remitting the death sentence
of Damon, sought admission to their
Salvation Army Concert.
A concert was given Wednesday night
at . the Salvation Army barracks, on
Front street, which made an interesting
evening. "rTbe.. seating capacity of the
ball was completely over-filled and
people stood up all over the room.
Much preparations had been made by
the members of the army and the inter
est shown by the audience re w aided
them for the somewhat irksome tak of
drilling little children. ' Upon the stage
were seated the officers and members
and the performers of the evening. The
barracks is always decorated with flags
and becoming mottoes.- . The program
alternated with" recitations and songs
mostly by little children. The audience
heartily appreciated the efforts of the
young ones and every eflvrt received
generous applause. The program we are
compelled to omit, owing to lack, of
room. The Salvation Army is doing
good work wherever they are and the
officers in charge are polite, sincere and
earnest in the discharge of their duties.
