Not Afler Office.
At this season of the year when the
apple trees aie blooming and doves are
cooing and wheat is spiouting and the
air is thick with politics and oione it ib
not, perhaps, very strange that baseless
I political rumors should be spawned
upon the public. One of the most ro
! bust of these rumor pertains to Geo. C.
for circuit jU(lse jt wag tsAerteu by some
that the district attorneyship was a fat
plum and that Mr. Brownell wasafter it.
An F.Nri!EPHisi reporter asked Mr.
1 Urownell about this matter and got a
i very decisive answer.
"The man who intimated that I wanted
I to 'oe district attorney was destitute of
political sense" said Mr. Brownell. "In
the first place Clackamas county could
not get both the attorneyship and the
judgeship. Then 1 prepared and offered
the resolution that was adopted in our
county convention instructing the dele
! gates to the state convention to vote first,
1 last and all ihe time for Hon. Thos. Mc
I Bride for circuit judge. I am not now
! and do not expect to be a candidate for
j office. I would not take the district
I attorneyship if it was offered to me and
a certificate of election with it. There
is something else to do in this world
than running for office. Although a few
cheap, peanut politicians haven't tumbled
to it, it's a fact just th same."
The record of rainfall for a series of
years shows that the average for the
month of April is Ie- than an iaAx of
ruin in the eastern half of Washington
botween the Cascades and the eastern
tier of counties. West of the Cascades
the rains range from two to over four
inches, increasing gradually near the
coast Oregon has a dry spot that has
less than an inch of rain during April,
and that covers Harney and Malheur
counties in the southeastern part of the
state. Excepting this belt the section
of Oregon east of the Cascades has an
average precipitation of from one to two
inches, except about six inches on the
t (. Coui,tv. and a like amount
along the Cascades in the northern por
tion of the state.
The people's p:rty n jininee for judge
of this circuit is II B. Luce who was
named after J. C. Archbnld of Hillttboro
had declined. W. H. Walker is tor
'district attorney. The congressional
nominee for this district is M. V. Uork
of Marion county. E. C. Hamilton of
Clackamas is named for the representa
tive of this district on the slate equaliza
tion board . The following persons stand I
for presidential electors: N. Pierce,
W.H. Galvani, W. G. Burleigh, and S.
H. Holt. For delegates to the national
convention, J. Green, Mrs. 8. It. Keenan,
W, Hoffman, Joseph Waldrop, W. A.

The street superintendent swore out
warrants for the arrest of two young
men who insisted on leading their horses
on the sidewalk on Sixth street Thurs
day morning. One of the parties left
town before the warrant was served,
however. The other will be dealt with I
under the ordinance. j
The dog and cattle pound at the corner I
of Thirteenth and Washington streets
was completed last week but no use has
been made of it yet. The city marshal
now wants the council to appoint a

OVER THE FALLS.

Ther FmII to Appelate tho I'.iiw
the Current mill an- Hurled In De
struction In a Moment.
Two men, employes of the Willamette
Falls Fleetrie company, were swept over
the falls shortly after noon Wednesday,
They were Thomas Seollard and Frank
Perkins. The boat and oars and I'erkins'
hat issued front the foaming vortex at
the foot of the fall and werv taken ashore
some distance Mow the cataract but no
sign of the drowned men baa yet up-
Thomas Seollard was a married man
about thirty-five vears of age. Ho bad
live I in this city Mweon two and three
years having recently built a collage on
ThirdstreetnearW.il. Howell's He
leaves a wife. Ftank Perkins was
twenty-four years of ago and unmarried.
He came to Oregon from Massachusetts
alniut eleven months ago and since last
November lie has Iven employed at the
electric light station in this city. His
mother and sister, and an uncle, James
Barry, live in Portland. He was an lM,l
Fellow. Both were engaged in wiping
ami caring for the machinerv in the
electric light station.
It was I AO when the steamer K. I wood
came down the basin to the flouring
mill. The electric light people have a
boom across the basin from the east
shore to the power house, (which u
located on Ahernothv island) on which
the men walk in passing between the
power bouse and t tie shore. Kvery
time a boat enters the basin one
end of the boom has to le unlashed so it
can swing around and leave a free
channel tor navigation. Imme
diately below the power house ia a
waterfall of nearly forty feet, the water
plunging into a bowl eighteen feet deeper
where the water wheel in the old flour
ing mill used to be. Seollard and Per
kins took a boat and unlashed the end
of the boom at the power house as they
bad often done before. They were
swinging around with it toward Ihe east
shore, which action brought their skiff
within atKMit thirty feet of the tall. But
the water had raised nearly eighteen
inches during the past few days and the
current was so strong that in spite of the
fact that Scultard had a f. fin hold of
the roie attached to the doom and Per
kins labored at the oars they wete
swept over the cataract in a 'winkling
and nothing more seen of them. Several
men have been since engaged in drag
ging the river for Ihe bodies but have
not found them.
The force of the current at that par
ticular part of the falls is terrific. It is
imHjssible for a man merely to hold on
to a roe that mav lie dropped in the
current there; in spite of his best effort
it will be jerked through his hands like
a flash. There was occasion last w inter
to stretch an inch rope across at the top
of the fall, when the current caught it
and instantly parted it asunder. The
men who were lost did not correctly cal
culate the increased force of the current
by reason of the rise in the river and
this miscalculation c "t them their lives.

Saturday night lo consider the matter.
Incidentally the city ollli-en were inil
shut ply scored for the apparent laxity
in the execution of the laws. Mayor
Sullivan presided at I he meeting and
Captain Shaw was secretary. The hall
was crowded. A score or more of
speeches were made and the utmost
indignation was maniiesled toward the
offender whose action had incited the
meeting as well as toward several of
their companions in infamy. A roe
was suggested and it would have been a
mighty uasy matter to hae orgaulicd
hanging Ihh on the spot. Indeed, but
for the action of a few of the more con
servative such ui'glit have been the
