The board of managers of our Com
mercial club have elected a manager
In the person of P. C. Lavey, late of
Muskogee, Okla. Mr. Lavey Is pos
sesscd of enthusiasm In bis work, and
has had wide expurlence. With the
united support of the people of the
town and county he will, as he anys,
"make good." Without this support,
the publicity campaign, planned
months ago, and talked of by every
citizen of the city since, will be a
farce. Money hfts been subscribed
liberally to cany forward , this plan
for our municipal and business bet
terment, and It behooves every one to
help In all ways In order that we may
Bet good out of the expenditure. We
have a leader who known what tn do,
and all that U heceiwury to Insure a
splendid success Ik cn-opcrutlon on
the part it the citizens.
If we have heard the rcmurk once,
since the celebration, we have beard
it ecore of time, and that s "Thnt La
Grande should provide a natural park
sufficiently large to provide a natural
arbor for such public occasions." Hut
What's the useT La Grande will never
have a park unlets the Indies of our
city orgunlze a vigilance committee
nd go out and hold up the city, city
council and all, and never stop until
the trees are planted. A few year
go the ladles thought they had done,
sufficient to secure a park. They
raised several hundred dollars, pur
chased 16 lots and turned It over to
tho city With tile , expectation Hint
the tree would bo plnnted. Ladles,
organise your vigilance committee, go I
to the city council, ami If the n-9-;it i
lots are not nult.il!- located. Insist
that the city give you full power to'
ell the lots which you originally gave j
It, and purchase property elsewhere,
nd set out a park. The Observer be-j
lleves more and more that the worn, n I
of La Urunde are tho power behind

matters, tlriiiemhcr lust fall how the j

(Henry E. Eland, Correspondent for
Denver, July 7. As It appears to
day the chances are good that there
will be an old democratic ruction over
the naming of a vice-presidential can
didate. Offhand, of the hundred as
nu recepyve" candidates,
the two most prominently mentioned
are Representative Ollle James of
Kentucky and Charles A. Towne, for
merly of Minnesota, but now of New
York. There are one or two absolute
facts connected with the situation:
One la that If the delegates from New
York will, or can, unite upon a can
didate, that man will be nominated
If New York does not desire to avail
Itself of this privilege, Bryan will in
dicate his choice, and whoever he
names will be nominated. Another
fact Is that even many radicals are
desirous of naming a conservative for
Oeorge Fred Williams of Massachu
setts Is responsible for James, be
cause he would "cinch" the southern
vote and Is a great orator.
There Is strong suspicion that Mur
phy, of Tammany Hall, has an un
derstanding with Bryan on the vice
presidency and there is also a stronger
suspicion that llrvan favors Towne.
It Is reported thnt Thomas F. Grady,
the Tammany orwr. has been select
ed to place Ton In nomination.

Denver. July 7. Tammsny has out
Hrvancd Iliyun. It hai decided
present to the resolutions cnmmltt e
the most railleiil platform ever sutt
gested from the east. The stib-com-
"'II f the New Yotk (I. leu.iti.in
named to confer on planks New York
desires, favored practically nil the
ftiia-estlons made ly the American
Federation of Ihor affecting labor,
and especially those favoring the antl
Injunctlon. Ilr.win Forces Itryttn.
1'iyan's ftl.nds are furious, nnd
openly a.ert that Tammany Is try
ing to ernli.it rays him. Il has no ,le
Mlie to n,i so far as to prohibit tho
use of lll.lon. tl'.lis. He w Mils to reg
If S -heme Viiisncnil.
The Tsmnoiny men I t the r.it out
of the bag. ravine.:
"We hive a ilty election i n,, voir
i from this fall, snd we need the labor
vote. If Rryan and bis friends oppose
us, wn will put the responsibility p
to them. If he fonts the conserva
tive platform, God hi lp Ms chances,
as both the urst and east resent It."
The Tnminnny platform will nl-'i
please the Tuclflc slope. It Insists eg
the exclusion of the Asiatics and fa
vnrs an Increased navy.
Tnmmsny does not want a declara
tion on safeguarding and guaranteeing
the national bank deposits, as Okla
homa suggests no mention of th
matter. The New York delegating
unanimously adopted the radical
platform this morning.
