King has been appointed com missioner of the Oregon supreme court by Governor Chamberlain. Will R. Kins was a resident of the state of Washington at the time of his appointment. Why did Governor Chamberlain select a man from 4 Mishborlng state to fill this important seat when there is so much good material to be found in Oregon. True! Mr. Kino maintaineJ a branch office in Ontario and claimed Oregon as his home when looking for official plums, but ' the fact remains that that his family lived jn .Walla Walla, he had spent . most of his time in ths Washington side of the liner, and refa red to Walla Walla as "home" when spesklrg of that city to people other Lhan tha dealers out of good things official. - Will R. ' King,'' democrat;' .. William' Roderick King, fusionist; and William Rufus King populist. Since success has been attained under the tricolor a little biography will not comt amiss. V. Way back in 1892 W. R. King is sailing along serenly under the flag of democracy over In Malheur county. He is attacked by the political bee about this time and the faithful elect him to the state legisla tive. He makes the usual record in the lower house and 'upon his return to.eastern Oregon, having outgrown the somewhat undeveloped Malheur .county, he comesto Baker City where he forms a law Dart- nership vth the late T. Calvin Hyde, one of the foremost legal lights of the state. At this time Mr. King is still in the ranks of ths followers of the meek and lowly ass. ... Two years after Commissioner King's election to the house the populists swept this section of the country by storm, far and near the cry of , the' pops is heard. Here we Me a mighty transformation scene and Will R. Kirigdeomcrat, is no more. The cocoon bursts and a thins of radiant, beauty is launched into the world. This is William Rufus King, popu list. . Qn the monster wavs of populism William Ruf' s King is swept into the state senate, defeating Baker City's pre sent manor, C. A. Johns, in ths campaign. , A'ter serving bis four year term in the senate as a populist William Rufus repre sents ths nsw party in a fusion with the democrats and William Roderick Kins becomes candidate for governor as leader of the pops on a fusion ticket. Tall Tam arack from Salem is in the race for the republicans and the populist candidate learns the game of politics. - Realizing that the strength of his nsw S 1" " ' J- .

The Ontario office is maintained, as a branch, but Will R. King, . democrat, ; Ukes his ,ami'y, nd departs for pastures new, making his residence on the other side of the state line, settling in' Walla Walla. He is heard to shout the beauties and ad vantages of (he Washington city from the house tops, heard to lovingly whisper "home" and the irrelevant murmer "what is he after in Washington?" Then the bombshell bursts. Will R. King, democrat, resident 'of Wafla Walla, Washington, Is appointed commissioner of the Oregon state supreme court. Such is politics.
