next .'president, Senator Jonathan
Bourne of Oregon, will be strenuous

according to his statement here.
He said: ."I: am for him now, the
next time and always". I think he
will make one' of 'the greatest pres
idents of bur history. I think Roose
velt will return to aid 'Taft in carry
ing out the policies and will stump
for Taft. If necessary he wilf be re

support Taft in congress."

Yesterday, last night, and until the

for it. '
Tonight hilarity and glee is to run
rife, and it is anticipated that the
monster building will be filled with
city people. The farmers' who at
tended have gone home to spread the
good gospel, and the attendance here
after will be much greater. Rain

ANOTHER MAN HUNT.
SALEM, Oct 5. George Myers, who
shot Policeman Eckhart, when that
officer arrested him for disturbing the
peace recently, will probably be cap
tured within 12 hours as three possea
are trying to down him near Leban
on. Myers told the farmer who fed him
yesterday that "He would die with
his boots on."
Sheriff Mlnto has given orders to
take him either alive or dead. The
chase has been the most exciting
since the Tracy hunt.
