School Election. The school elec
tion held in Oregon City district No. 02,
last Monday, was the center of all in
terest. For the time being, the mo
mentous questions of county politics
were laid to rest, and the all-absorbing
question was the election of school di
rector for the term of three years to
succeed Dr. J. YV. Norris. The candi
dates were E. E. Charman and F. T.
Griffith, and the, largest vote of taxpay
ers ever cast in Oregon City at a School
election was poiled. Many ladies voted,
and carriages wore busy running all the
afternoon to and from the polling places.
At polling place No. 1, in the Fountain
engine house, Charman received 119
votes, and Griffith 98. At polling place
No. 2,-in Number Three's engine house,
Charman received 91 votes, and Griffith
22. Charman's majority was 90. Mrs.
S. M. McCown practically had 110 oppo
sition for re-election as district clerk.
She received 253 votes at both polling
places, and seven scattering votes were
cast for G. W. Swope. Three hundred
and thirty votes were polled Monday
Two years ago the annual meeting and
school election was held in Pope's hall.
Dr. W. E. Carll was elected director
over W. A . White by a majority of 34.
Six hundred sixty-two votes were polled
at this election, but everybody was per
mitted to vote irrespective of age, eex,
color or previous condition of servitude.
Many went away without voting, be
cause they became tired of waiting for
a chance to gain admission to the
crowded hall. One year ago the tax
paying qualification for voters was
strictly enforced, and 175 votes were
cast for C. II. Caufield, who was elected
director without opposition.
Two Aociuknts. On Saturday morn
ing a serious accident occ urred at Bon
ney Bros sawmill near Redland, about
six miles from Oregon Citv. The mill
was running and Ira Bonney was oper
ating the sa w. The er.w became clogged
in some way and a scantling flew up
and struck Mr. Hohney a severe lick on
the forehead lacerating his scalp ai d
splitting his nose and probably fractur
ing some ".bones. The injured man's
brother, -V. E, Bonney, mounted a
horse and Listened to Oregon City to
summon a physician. When he reached
the corner, of Main and 14th streets
he , was still riding at a rapid rate, and
collided wiili the Gladstone car, which
was making its down trip. The horse
was so badly injured that ho was shot
to put an end to his misery, and Mr.
Bonney wafc severely bruised on the arm
and other parts of the body. Mr. Bon
ney stated that he believed that if he
had not pulled on the horses reins
while in an excited state of mind, that
he could have passed the car safely.
Mr. Bonney was married a few days ago
to Miss Lizzie Armstrong, of Redland.

WIDOW CAN DO
WITH THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS?
Fifteen hundred dollars will buy a home. Fifteen
hundred dollars invested at four per cent interest
will earn enough to keep the house in repair and pay
the taxes. Now this is not affluence, but it means
shelter and independence. This can certainly be
secured at the slight cost required by insurance in

Chaplain Waltuhs Talks About
Convicts. Rev. J. J. Walters, pasor of
the Centenary M. E. church in Port
land, and formerly chaplain of the Jo
liet penitentiary in Illinois, delivered a
very interesting lecture at the M. E.
church in this city last Friday evening.
His subject was "The Walled City, or
Four Years Among Prison Walls." He
told of many interesting things that had
occurred during his experience as a pen
itentiary chaplain, and of the study
that he had made of criminal character
istics. He divides criminals into three
classes, the two principal of which are
hereditary and accidental. Dr, Walters
claimed that hereditary crime was a dis
ease, and that the usual terms of im
prisonment had no effect on this class
of criminals , They would be criminals
as long as they lived, and there was no
known cure for the malady, and the only
relief that could be afforded to society
would be to have this class of criminals
securely confined during life.
Fired at A Tramp. Miss Dora Ja
cobs, of Canemah, was plucky enough to
shoot at a tramp the other evening.
Many girls, or even older ladies, would
have ruslAsd into the ljouse thoroughly
frightened and barricaded the doors,
but Miss Jacobs didn't. About eight
a'clock Friday night when she went out
to the woodshed to get a stick of wood,
and saw a tramp partially hid among
the rose bushes she leisurely went back
into the house, and came out with a
gun. She then notified the tramp to
travel, and when he didn't budge she
blazed away at him with the contents of
the pistol evidently missing him. The
pistol shot, however, had the desired ef
fect, for the tramp lost no time in getting
out of the range of the shooting iron.
Miss Jacobs resides with Ed. T. Fields
and family at Canemah, and the ladies
were alone in the house at the time, Mr.
Fields not having returned from the S.
P. depot, wherojie holds the position of
baggage master. 1
Violated Revknuk Laws. F. Kar
len, who resides up the Clackamas with
bis family, has been having a little
trouble with the revenue authorities.
Mr. Karlen is an honest, upright citi
zen, and manufactures brandy from
prunes. His nephew and another man
at Starbuck, Wash., wanted a few gal
lons of the brandy and the same was
sent to their order. A jealous Starbuck
saloon keeper diseovend that there
was no revenue stamps on the keg, unci
caused Mr. Kartell's arrest, and it was
expected that ho would have? his hear
ing at Spokane. Last Satunbiy, how
ever, , I iiilgo Bellinger- was not inclined
to sen I Mr. Karlen to Spokane for trial,
as his ofl'em-e at worht, is a trivial one,
and bei-idcs his wife is, an invalid and
he would be far from home and among
strangers. Judge Bellinger permitted
Mr. Karl- n to go home on his own recognizance.

A Tol'oii Lot ok IIoiiokh. Chief
Burns had a lively tussle Monday morn
ing with a hard gang of hoboes, who
had arrived on the north-bound freight
train. They took in the sights until
it was about time for the north bound
overland to come along, when they col
lected along' the track near the water
tank. One burly hobo was standing on
the track very much intoxicated, when
Chief Burns appeared on the scene, and
started to lead him away. Two lusty
specimens of the outlit then tried to
take the prisoner away from the chief,
but in about a minute he had three of
them in the air at one lime. Finally,
the entire crowd were landed in the cal
almose, after "one was recaptured who
attempted to run away, and another one
delayed matters by having an eclectic
