Ex-Cong rehbhan Charles A. Towne
epoke at Birmingham, Ala., last week,
under auspices of the local democratic
bimetallic club. He' was greeted by a
large and enthusiastic audience. Fie
atated that he was just from a conference
of tho national leaders of three silver
parties in Washington, where it was
decided to push the campaign for silver
with renewed vigor, and' that in pur
suance of the planB outlined he is enroute

that the first gun of the campaign of

At a meeting of Clarkes Lodge No. 3,
Patriots of America, tho following reso
lutions were presented and unanimously
Whereas, The toilers of this nation
have no longer hope of relief from the
McKinley administration (he having
violated every promise which he made
in 189(1), and,
Whereas, The idle have not been em
ployed; wages instead of raising have
decreased ; trade has become more stag
nant; factories continue to close, and
the "pot measure" of the republican
party, the Dingley law, has failed to
provide sufficient revenue to delray the
expense of government; and,
Whereas, In view of the fact that the
states of Washington, Kansas, Nebraska
and South Dakota have been rescued
from republican misrule by a union of
the silvor forces J succeeding in electing
fusion senators, who have saved the
nation from that traitorous piece of at
tempted legislation, the Gage monetary
bill, which, had it been successful,
would have made a revolution necessary
to have emancipated mankind; there
fore, be it
Resolved, That we heartily favor a
union of the populist, democratic and
silver republican parties in the approach
ing campaign in Oregon, with silver, at
the ratio of 10 to l,as a national, and
direct legislation as a state issue; and,
be it further
Resolved, That but one reform ticket
be placed in tho fluid, and each of the
above named parties bo represented
thereon according to their respective
numerical strengths ; and, be it further
Resolved, That we will unanimously

Burns Will be Free. James Burns,
the last of 34 convicts, Khose sentences
were committed by Governor Pennoyer,
a few days before the expiration of his
term, will be discharged March 1st. It
will be remembered by many Clackamas
county people that in April, 1893,
Chinaman named Lorn Ki was killed for
his money at the dead hour of midnight
in a hop house near Mulino. James
Burns and Theron Mack were living on
Charles Spangler's place making rails
at the time the murder was committed.
They were summoned before the coro
ner's jury, but there was no convicting
evidence to connect them with the
murder. However, they were placed
under arrest by Chief of Police Purdoin,
and convicted themselves by each mak
ing a confession. The object of the
murder was robbery, as the Chinaman
had recently received the money for his
hops, but the murderers were disap
pointed as they found none. At
the April term of the circuit court the
grand jury returned a verdict of murder
in the first degree, and at the conclusion
of the triul in May, Judge McBride
sentenced both Burns and Mack to the
penitentiary for life. Theron Mack died
after serving about a year of his sen
tence, and James Burns will be a free
man after March 1st.

Oregon City. In 1849 he followed the
rush to the gold fields of California, and
upon his return he took a donation
claim on Clear Creek, 12 miles from this
city. In 1852 he was united in marriage
with Miss Eliza A. Trullinger, who
survives him. They had a son, A. R.

sided up to the time of his death.,
