The republican rally at Miller' ball
Monday evening was said to be the most
enthuxiastic meeting of the canvass. At
about 7 :30 o'clock the air from the south
came laden with sweet sounds and upon
looking for the cause we saw a band of
handsomely uniformed young musicians
uiarvhinit into our quiet village. Halt
ing in front of the hall they discoursed
choice selections to the assembling crowd
till the room was full and overflowing.
Mr. R. Scott colled the meeting o or
der and introduced Mr. Rinearson who
started the ball rolling in a pleasing
Hon. Joel P. Oeer followed with a
lengthy additas on the tariff and other
important issues.
Other candidates were introduced with
pithy speeches which were well received,
but the crowd reserved the most hearty
Applause for our champion, K. Scott. We
venture to say if the voters ot Clackamas
count; knew him as well as his neighbors
do they would give him an overwhelm-J
ing majority at the June election.
Gordon E. Hayes was sick but he

A great from the Verrhant of Tnie at as
Spblnowatkb, May 15. On Thursday
the 12th, the young men gave a social
under the auspices of Y. P. S. C. E. of
. the Presbyterian church of this place.
Some two week's previous it was an
nounced at the society's meeting that
each member was to take part, either
by singing, reciting or making a speech,
failure in which .would entail a fine of
ten cents. The evening arrived, the
room was crowded and the committee
appointed began to make up the pro
gramme. Everyone responded so heart
ily that it was nearly 11 o'clock be
fore these exercises weie concluded, after
which coffee, crackers and cheese were
served by young men wearing white
aprons, most beautifully 'embellished
with cochet work. All exercises were
good, the special feature of the evening
being a rendering of the trial scene from
Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice,"
the following being the cast of charac
ters: Antonio Mr.C. L. Gray.
Bassanio Mr. A. Lacey.
Duke Mr. 8. Q. West.
Portia , Mrs. John Hickman.
Gratiano Mr. J. Guttridge.
Bbyleck R. Hargreaves.
Salerio Jas. Marshbank.
Nerissa Clifford Stipp.
Clerk Jean Lewelien.
The play held the audience spellbound
and there was a feeling of relief when
Shvlock, foiled In his murderous at
tempt and his own life in jeopardy,
dropped his knife and steel from bis
trembling hands.
. The instrumental music of Minnie
Snyder was excellent as was the duet
of Mrs. Hickman and in short the whole
social was a great success. The pro
ceeds go towards paying for the organ.

a little out lest the courthouse be dumped
into tbe river and the bluff tumbled down

out of existence; yet Samson's reply is to
come, we re told.
