Knapp. Tho tables woro fairly
groaning with good things, in
rliidincr meats, salads, uicklea
nlnm chowder, cakes, coffee,
friiit.ico cream and othor ac
cosBories. It is needless . to
savl that tho St. Johns aggro
iration did ample justice to the
nnnotizinir feast, as tho ride in
tho ovening air placed avory one
in tho pronor framo of mind to
tako caro of everything in sight.
Tho culinary department of tho
hotel, is to bo congratulated upon
tho Bplondfcl dinner and tho man
nor in which it wns prepared
and served. Wo understand thofe

After all had dined and inspec

if It would bo satisfactory, and
Mr. Walker replied that it would
scarcely bo onough yet. Then
ho was asked if three blocks
would bo satisfactory and Mr.
Walker rosponded that so far as
ho was individually concerned
it would. Mr. Walker stated
that tho three additional blocks

would total something over
seventeen acres and extending

that it was the intention to mako

A numbur of interesting com

Office 208 South Jersey,

is tho II. C. L., as only a paltry
salary is attached to it and it
costs just as much in Washington
for a connressman to livo as it
docs a senator.
Congratulations to our old
friends "Hob" Stanfiold and
"Gcorffo" Chamberlain. No
worry and a "pipe-cinch." Tho
votar will have somo difficulty
in extracting the humor out of
his ballot when it cornea to cast
ing his or her vote.
.In previous letter wo hinteds
at certain candidates who havo
a stock of "slogans" on hand to
bum foozle tho public, but wo
havo come across a good one
this timo that 1 bcliovo is meant
with sincerity and honosty.
It's by William A. Cadwoll, who
is n ropublican candidato for
assessor. Ho states on his cards
that ho will work for lower tax
es and fair assessments. If he
will do that and Bhow his uood
faith ho ought tobeelccUd. Mr.
CadTTolI is well known through
out tho county and ho intends to
mako it pretty lively for his
John IS. Kelly. Mr. Muck, tho
proscnt incumbent, and Mr.
Chas. Huduen ar goint to mix
up matters very seriously, no
I understand, for the oftico of
county commissioner. Why
this should be auk mo not. Thar
aliot much salary attached to
this office, but thoro is great
deal of work, which theso gentle
men arc and havo bean doing
most all of their lives. In fact
they "eat-lt-un." and osuecinlly
Mr. Hudson, who is tha best of
nil of them whon it comas to eat
ing raw meat. Mr. Kelly iu a
vory nlfnblo gentlonun and
would make n cood commiss
ioner. Mr. Muck has been on
tho job all tho time, oo ha says.
ami if that is tho caio ho likes
tho work moro than ho doo tho
salary. Mr. Kudcon i one of
tho most energetic citizens in
Portland and durinr hiu rostd
enco hero hni accumulated quite
a fortune. Ila dots not care for
tha salary but hai certain ideas
n his mind which ho wants to
enrry out for tho benefit of tho
nubile welfare. Mr. Kudean
taa been successful and in nil of
lis undertaking in bus ncss has
mado it a ml lo play the game
lonest and above board.
Stanley Meyers, tho denuty
city attorney, is going to get at
