The board of directors of the Oregon

His name if II. A. Hayes, of Hender
son, Ky., and he was employed through
.1 teachers' agency, who not only guar
intee his educational ability and peda
jogic accomplishments, but pay his fare
'rotn Kentucky to Oregon City and re
'.urn, if he does not prove satisfactory to
'he school board. He is said to have
liven satisfaction as school superintend
ent in a city of 15,000 inhabitants.
Mr. Hayes comes from a land of "co
lonels," pretty women and ohivalric
nen the borne of statesmen and val
iant soldiers the state that produces
ine horses and the best old bourbon
itid rye in the world.
A teachers' agnney differs from a mat

be latter the goods sometimes come
L). 0. D and the agency makes no pro
vision for the return of the article, if it
loos not provs satisfactory. In this re
pect, the teachers' agency has points
lecidedly in its favor.
No one questions the qualifications of
Ir. Hayes, but many people openly ex
press the opinion that the board should
Uave given Oregon applicants the Dref

eachers to apply themselves diligently
'or promotion, when they are coolly
nrnnddown. The board of regents of

lecidod that it does not always pay to
end Kant for presidents, and selected
"resident P. L. Campbell, of the Mon
noutli Normal school for the place, an
ducator who has made his reputation
There was also capable material in
he Oregon City suburban schools for
lie grade teacher vacancies.
All the grade teachers were re-elected,
vho filed their applications with the

Harriet Case did not desire positions,

nounced the unnecessary and extrava-.
gant expenditure of the sheriff's and
clerk's offices and entirely overlooked
the assessor's and the big monthly sums
received by the three commissioners.
The reason for the oversight was not far
to seek. H. Cross and Colonel Miller
were especial objects of his venom, and
he boldly declared that they, with per
haps Billy Ganonif, formed the worst
and most dangerous political ring in
Oregon City and Clackamsi county.
The tone of Mr. Ryan's speech was more
moderate. He gave his own voucher for
the fitness for office and th good quali
ties of the candidates on his side, and
thought it would be better policy for the
people to vote for republicans who would
work than for their rivals, who would
only make "flowery" speeches. The
judge is a good and popular man, but he
will not have any votes to spare on
June 2d. The general tendency to
extravagance of the republicans in thiB
county is sure to detach numbers of
voters from them on election day.
The citizens followed closely in the
wake of the republicans, and there was
also a fair-sized audience to greet them.
As talkers thev compared very favorably
with their rivals. Hedges laio Dare tne
methods of the republicans at the last
legislative session. He showed very
cleat ly why men with little education
and still less judgment and independ
ence are always nominated for legis
lators by republican conventions. Go
it, Gilbert ; we hope you will be elected
and may have the opportunity to drag
out into sunlight all the corruption and
rottenness to be found at Salem.
Mr. Eastham dirjcted his remarks
mainly at the mismanagement of county
affairs and the alarming growth of its
indebtedness. There was plenty of
scope for him here, but we think he
hardly made the most of his case. For
the conduct of officials is much more
closely tcrutinized now than was for
merly the case. Mr. Clara, who pro
fessed himself a republican, explained
how he bi-oame associated with the re
form movement. He impressed us as
being in earnest about his opinions, and
will, if elected, prove no doubt a worthy
representative. It is the general opinion
in this part that the election will be
close and that neither party can afford
to neglect a single vote. Aramoiio.

Mr, Editor: Please allow me a little
space to divulge a secret which I have
kept for four long years. Four years
ago, when Ueorge J. Brownell was
elected state senator, a certain element
of the people'B party raised a cry agajgpst
fusing with the democrats, yet they
electioneered for Brownell and other re
publican candidates; but more than
thatj they were also leaders of an in
significant little order called the M. P
A., or vigilance committee, ot which I
was also a member. So just before elec
tion I met a co-member, and he told me
that at the previous meeting (from which
I was absent) they had passed a resolu
tion endorsing a certain candidate
Now, in the first place, this was not a
political organization and therefore had
no business to pass a political resolu
tion; and today that same element
stands at the head of the socialist party.
1 think it is slmplv to draw votes from
the citizens' party and cause the elec
tion of republicans With them it is a
case of you cannot tickle me too much
now; we are not single yet. This, my
friends, is wtiy 1 ara not and never will
be a socialist, as long as present con
ditions prevail. You all know me.
