Mr. Homer Davenport, whose fame is
world wide, is an run need for a lecture
in this city April 13, at Sbivley's Opera
House. Ia comparatively few years he
has come to be recognized as the most
original and forcefal cartoonist in
American journalism, and so great is the
populapi'y of his work that his original
drawings are eagerly 6ought for all sorts
and conditions of people. At the height
ot the adverse criticism on the candidacy
of Admiral Dewy for President, Daven-
part drew a picture of the gallant old
admiral standing on the hridga of the
Olympia, and with the smoke of the
battle of the Manila Bay flying thick
about him. Beneath it were the words.
"Lest We Forget." The effect of the
cartoon was instantaneous. It brought
Dewy letters from hundreds of admhers
all over the country and so great was
the attention it. attracted that its author
was requested to send it to Washington
to be placed on exhibition. The re
quest was complied with and the
picture drew such a crowd that the po
lice finally ordered it taken from the
window in which it was disolaved.
John R. McLean, brother-in-law to Ad
miral Dewy afterward offered for it a
price that surprised Davennort into
agreeing to part with it, although it had
been his attention to keep it in his col
lection. Other cartoons have brought
him no leas renown, and even the public
.men whom he has most, often impaled
on the point of his keen pen have sought
for his pictures to keep as mementos of
the camp&igojthey have gone through.
Seats on sale at Huntley's, 50 cents to
any part of the house, Shively'a Opera
House, April 13. To his other achieve
ments, Homer Davenport now promises
to add the distinction of a lecture: of the
first order. It takes a peculiar sort of
quality to succeed in the declining realm
of the jesture platform. Learning and
even oratory cannot insure against fail
ure. Seats on sale at Huntley's.
No Appropriation Has Been
Made and the Outlook is
The appropriation for the Lewis and
Clark Fair has been turned down by
Coneros by a vote that does ot augur
well for the final success of the matter.
The Oregon delegation and the friends
of the Fair are yet hopeful of the final
success of the bill, but it does not look
good. The appropriation has been
scaled from $2,250,000 to $450,000 and
even tMs pittance has been denied.
There are millions of dollars for pensions
and millions of dollars for naval im
provements and all kinds of money for
(Hher schemes, but the Oregon country
is so far lsft out in the cold. There are
a few small hy. statesmen in Congress
who are anxious to make records, and
that accounts for the trouble.
