LAYING FLANS FOR THE
FUTURE AND MAKING
READY FOR THE
Democratic Harmony ihe Watch
Word and the Outlook for
the Future Glorious.
The Democratic County Central Com
mittee met at the hall of the Fire Board
on last Friday and v. ere in session the
biggest part of the day. About twenty
committeemen, representing as many
districts were present. Speeches were
made by Colonel R. A. Miller, Judge
William Galloway, James P. Lovett, W,
H. Vaughan, Longstreet Yaughan, James
H. Thompson and many other. A
spirit of harmony prevailed. The gen
eral idea was to get together, forget
past differences, "Let the part dead bury
us dead" and turn the face of the party
to the future. Committees were 'ap
pointed to manage finances, literature
and other advertising matter and a
general propagranda of education is to
be begun at once to win back the place
in Clackamas county lost in the years
gone by by dissension and party differ
ences. The "Gold bug" and ''Free Sil
yer" Democrat the "Populist" and
the "Socialist" Democrats were each and
all represented at the meeting, ani it
leoka like there is a good "time coming"
for ihe party in this part of the earth.
The Democratic paper was promised
hearty support in all things and its editor
encouraged to go on with the good work.
It was the concensus of opinion that
Clackamas county is a Democraric
county and that a clean manly fight in
1904 with unity, and confidence
restored would ' demonstrate that
fact. The committe adjourned
to the call of the chairman and
it is understood that another meeting
will be called for the near future.

Brownell Wins For President
of the Senate.
Demo cratlc Governor Inaugur
ated and Legislation in '
Many Matters of Importance to
be Passed on During the
Forty Days' Session of
Salem, Jan. 14, 1903.
The Oregon Legislature convened lust
Monday . It was supposed by the two
factions of the Republican party that
the organizations of both houses, had
been affected iu Portland before the
members reached here, but this proved
to be a mistake when the caucus was
held. The two factions in the Senate
were sc closelv divided that it wan nnv-
body's fight un'.il after some 19 ballots j
had been taken for President of the Sen-'
ate. 1 he vote all this time standing 11
for BrownJl of Clackamas, and 11 for
Smith of Multnomah. It was a plain
line-up between the Fulton and anti
Fulton factions. After a recess Mon
day noon the Brownell faction won on
the first ballot by one vote. Aft' r this
contest, the remainder of the state was
easily agreed upon. It is reported that
Jonathan Bourne fixed matters. It is
certain that Mr. Brownell was his
choice, and he was his strong supporter
from the first to the last. The result,
while it defeated the anti-Fulton candi
date, cannot be interpreted as victory
for the gentlemen from Astoria in his
senatorial aspirations, as it is well known
that Bourne is in the field for o ther
In t' e House the contest was equally
close and spirited, the caucus being in
session from morning until 3 o'clock in
the afternoon, the vote standing about
equally divided between Davey, of
Marion, Eddy of Tillamook, nd Har
ris, of Lane. By a compromise between
the Eddy supporters and Harris, the
former withdrew finally, which with
drawal was followed by Davey, thus
making Harris' election unanimous. On
the convening of the Senate, Brownell
received the entire republican vote, ex
cepting Maraters, of Douglas, who did
not vote. Harris received the entire
republican vote in the House. The
Democrats in the Senate cast their votes
for Senator Wade, of Union, and in i he
House for Bilyeu ot Linn. The list for
the other officers in both houses must
have been' prepared in advance of its
election of the presiding officers, as
there was no further delay in the organi
zation. Both Houses adjourned organi
zation, the senate until Tuesday morn-
ningand the House until Tuesday after"
noon, out of respect to the death of
Congressman Thomas II. Tongue.
On Tuesday a large number of resolu
tions, memorials and bills were intro
duced in both houses. The Portland
charter bill was put through the house
Tuesday afternoon and reached the sen
ate this morning, and in less than 15
minutes was passed under suspension of
the rules, and will be the first act to re
ceive the signature of Gov. Geo. E.
Chamberlain. The other bill of impor
tance which has reached a third read
ing, is the Centennial appropriation

Both houses met in joint convention
at 11 o'clock to-day and canvassed .the
vote caBt at the last election for gover
nor. The result gave Hon. Geo. E.
Chamberlain 246 plurality, and he was
declared duly elected. This afternoon
Governor Geer delivered his message.
The oath of office was administered to
Mr. Chamberlain, who then read his
inaugrual address. It is a lengthy doc
ument, but full of sound and able argu
ments. The first official act of the new gover
nor was the signing of the commission

Abundant Crop of Grass Wld
oivs and Grass Widowers
The adjourned term of the Clackamas
county circuit court, which convened at
the court court house in this city on
Monday of lust week, with Judge Mc
Bride in the chair, is still in session and
will likely continue in session for several
days longer. Many small suits of a civil
nature have come before the court and
been settled. The chief work of the
court during the present term has been
in handing down divoice decrees, and
about thirty have already been granted.
The crop of 1903 grass widows and grass

adding more brine to the waters. At
