Joint Representative Must oe
Democrat, True or Renegade.
The action of thn MultDomah coun'y
Republican delegation in nomination
joint representative for Multnomah and
Clackamas county, without so much as
notifying the Clackamas delegation of
their meeting, is another instance of the
hoggish propensities of Portland Repub
licans. Of course they could have dic
tated the .nomination in a joint conven
tion, but they did not have the gnod
maimers even to make a pretense oi fair
The Clackamas delegation had been
instructed to vote for Col . 0. H. Dye,
of this city, for joint representative.
Col. Dye iB one of our best and abient
citizens, and is a life-loug Republican,
i'et he was turned dowu for a renegade
Democrat, who, four years ago, was
elected to the State Legislature as a
rabid free-Bilver advocate. This may
or may not ba good politics, but it cer
tainly shows that the Multnomah Re
publicans care nothing about purity in
politics, nothing about the principles of
a candidate for office, but desire only to
win votes. A we have said, this may
be good politics; but it is hprd to believe
that consistent Republicans would pre
fer supporting a Democrat who has de
serted his party and life-long profes
sions merely for t lie sake .f office, to'
voting for a Demociat wh is tiua to hi?
It is just as we go to prrFP, that our
fellow townsman, J. K. Hedges, ii.furiiH

for joint-representative that was given '
him bv thj Democratic Convention of
last Tuesday. Mr. Hedge refused a i
nomination at the hands of the county
convention: and would nave declined as
positively this honor, had he been prea-1
ent when his name was presented. But
aa the convention acted without his con
tent, and even without a suspicion on
his part that any such action would be
taken, and at the earnest solicitation of
his friends, he has decided o make the

The road above the Ed Carter place is

dition. If the county expended on it
the money paid in laxee by the owners
of the land contiguous to it, they would
be far better. The settlers there feel
this set of injustice keenly.

cleaiud land in cultivation, and put the
house iu order for his family.
Settlers are few thereabout, notwith
standing the fact that above the Shandv
place there is excellent government and
railroad land lying open. The soil in
that part of the Molatla foothills is un
exce led anywhere. Much of the open
land lies in a burn and could he easily
cleared. For apples the locality is far
better adapted than the valley land.

Parker as Dorothy, "who used to have a

After the close of the program ice cream
and cake were nerved. The ladies of
Parkplace deserve special commendation
for their liberality in donating material
for the supper, and lor their untiring
energy in preparing and serving it. The
proceeds amounted to $37.
The recent entertainment given by
the Mothers' Club brings np questions
about that Institution which it may be
of interest to know about:
In November 1902, written invitations
were sent out by Prof. McCanu to the
mothers of the district requesting them
to meet at the school house and organ
ize a society to promote the general wel
fare of the school. As a result about
forty or fifty ladies who felt a lively in
terest in the school, met in one of the
recitation rooms, and the "Mothers
Club" was organized with Mrs. Gault s
president, Mrs. Freetag, secretary, and
Mrs. Holmes, treasurer. An immediate
result was a larger number of parents
visiting the school roo i s and by so
doing encouraging both teachers and
pupils. Plans for providing good drink
ing water at the tchool were discussed at
the first meeting and have resulted in
having water ulped into the schoolhouse
and having faucets and sinks with good
drain pipes placed in three different
places. New library books, gasoline
lamps for the assembly ronm.duBtine for
the tliors, raftU usel in primary work,
seats, some janitor work, tickets and ad
vertii-ing, all amounting to $62.04, were
paid for oy proceeds of 'ectureu and so
cialB given by the club, leaving a balance
on hand at the end of the year of $2 27.
The attendence at the club during the
first year dropped off to bucIi an extent
that it was only through the steadfast
ness of a few faithful ones that there was
any society left over for the next year
But with the beginning of school in the
fall of 1903 interest revived. Mrs.Ganlt
was re-elected president, and MrB. Olds
secretary, and Mrs. Johnston treasurer.
A committee was named to arrange
programs for each meeting, and this
committee has prepared very entertain
ing and instructive programs with some
special subject for discussion each time,
in which the members have taken a
part. In a financial way the club has
also made a veryyatisfactnry record this
year, having raised $113.97, the motley
being proceeds of entertainments given
through the winter. The expenses the
club has met this year ameuut to $09.95,
and include curtain and scenery for the
stage in assembly hall, library books for
the school, and repairs and work around
the building. There is a balance of S40.29
which is held to he used as far as needed
in constructing a good walk' leading to
the schoolhouse. One more meeting
will be held during this term of school,
and it is a certainty that the club will
adjourn for the summer in good condi
tion, and the members will feel that the
club lias accomplished something worth
while, and will be ready to go into the
work another fall with renewed interest.

HOSE QUALITY ,
There are good, bad and indifferent grades of garden hose.
Poor hose rots, cracks and bursts. In two seasons you need more.
That's expensive. Good hose costs a third more, and, if properly
cared for, lasts four times as long. That's economical. We'll sell
you the kind you want, but advise the best. Our cheapest hose
sells for $3.00 in 50 foot sections.
For the porch, lawn or sitting room.
