registered in the entire coun'.v to date is
2135, out of 2302 ballots cist at the last

and her Republicans evidently do not
intend to allow the coming election to
go by default.

t Klamath county sends good news for
the Republicans, says the Examiner.
A careful estimate shows at leaBt 100
majority for the joint representative
ticket in that county. Republicans in
our sister county are -In perfect har
mony, as there are in Lake, and there is
said to be a split in the Democratic
ranks. Indications are that Hon. R. A.
Emmett, the Klamath nominee for joint
representative, will run away ahead of
his ticket. A man's popularity at home
is sufficient evidence that be is all right.

of Klickitat county, who was in The

North Yakima, he said: "It was rot
gut whiskey, I guess." Yet he did Lot
seem to be drinking and was always a
man of sober habits.
It Is strange, says the Dufur Di'patch,
that able Democrats, residents of Ore

present political questions, should bs

Texas, or some other annexed territory,
to drag up issues which the sensible
leaders of the party are trying to forget.

collection of roses in tho lot in front of

annoyed of late by boys on their way to
school plucking the roses in a manner
