According to tho above dates for candidates to declare them selves for office, wo aro of tho opinion thnt this week will find ovory one who is inclined to run for office ready to jump into the free-for-all-game. Among tnosc wiio aro now playing tho martyr for human ity's sake wo might mention few of them as to their nunlifi cations, o'tc. For Secretary of State thcro are now four candi dates in tho field, in fooling out tho sontimcnt ' off hand' thoro seems to be tho genera opinion that Mr. Shulderman will bo tho leading man in tho the race. Being a resident of Portland all his life, ho has naturally made many friends and nartng been corporation com missioner for six years makes him u very formidablo opponent. I would not bo surprisod but thnt ho will carry tho stato by an overwhelming majority. "Tom" Swesnoy has nnnounc ed himself for Congressman and I anticipate a pretty warm timo in tho next fow weeks.

Office 208 South Jersey, . 1 U..J-. l"l - ml, 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 opponents. 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 tor Walter Evans' icxlp. Ho isu announcod himiclf as candidate for tho republican nomination of district attorney. Stnnloy is n pretty good chap and knows his profession. lie iti had coniidorabl experlonc n municipal matters and in cane te should beat Mr.Kvani to it in irimariea it will be of groat ad vantage to him in tho now office Mr. Evans hai had two terms and has made good in every ros pect. iio l an able lawyer and most attentive to his uiulneu.
