FRIDAY, AUGUST 19, 1910
I wish lo announce to the rcpub
Hem voters of Mtiltnomnh county
that I nni n candidate for re election
to the legislature from this district,
subject to the choice of the voters
at the primary election to he held
September 34, igio. I am n firm
believer in "the direct primary law,
statement No. t find let the people
rule." K. C. COUCH.
The annexation question has
bobbed tin again. Two or more
local individuals arc strangely and
utiacctistotncdly industrious in cir
culating petitions to bring the mat
ter before the voters at the Novem
ber election. It requires 15 per
cent of the voters as indicated at
the last election to gel the proposi
tion on the ballot. It is said that
a number have already been se
cured and the probabilities arc that
the required number will be ob
tained. Many arc appending their
signatures in order that n vote may
be taken upon the issue, while oth
ers have done so because they arc
not fully enlightened as to what an
nexation with Portland would
mean to St. Johns, and as they
now view the matter arc of the
opinion that it would be best for
the city to annex. Ifeforc going
very deep into the subject it would
be well to consider whom is at the
head of this sudden movement. Are
they men who have proven them
selves to bu boosters for St. Johns,
or the reverse? Hnve they ever
done anything to help St. Johns
prosper? Arc they men in whom
you can place confidence to lead
aright, or are they men who for a
few paltry dollars would take any
side of any question? Arc they
live, energetic and capable men, or
merely store box warmers seeking
an outlet for their discontent?
Have you ever heard any of them
speak 11 good word for St. Johns,
and arc they the kind of men who
would likely go out of their way to

These are pertinent questions,
nevertheless they are of the tit
most importance. If the leaders of
any movement arc not ubove re
proach, It is always wise to inves
tigate said movement. We do not
say that the leaders of the present
movement ure not, yet it behooves
the people of St. Johns to consider
well, look into their lives and mo
tives, and if they find them clean,
it is then time to consider the pro
ject they so strongly advocate. The
subject is deep and broad, and
there are many things to be taken
into consideration. It is our

Hard on Colored Race,
The real thing in the boxing line
was pulled off at the skating rink
last Thursday night. Two colored
lads were overwhelmed by their
white opponents, and the bouts had
to be stopicd to save them from
heavy punishment. George Bill
son, the colored blacksmith, lasted
less than two rounds at the hands
of Ace Clement, his white opponent,
while Uoluie lulwards, another col
ored lad stayed iu the ring for al
most six rounds, when the bout
was stopped, A four round lire-
lltniuary between a couple ol "un
knowns" wus fast ami furious and
delighted the audience. The ex
hibitions were good in each instance
and there was not a disappointed
spectator In the house. The at
tendance was larger than usual and
the best of order was maintained
throughout. Another first class
fistfest will be pulled off at the rink
on Labor Day. anouueemeut of
