The Rusehurg Review in referring to
to slate politics says that Congressman
Hermann is making a hard fight for the
republican nomination for governor, but
the chances are that ho will finally give
it up, and accept a renomination for con
gress. Other leading candidates for gov
ernor J. B. Eddy, 0. N. Denny, Ex Oov.
Moody, D. P. Thompson, and Hon. C.
For the other state offices, Frank
Baker will probably be re-nominated for
state iirinter, although W. H. Leeds, of
Ashland wants it Phil Metchan for
treasurer. Ed. Hirwh, of Salem, ex-
state treasurer, is slated for secretary of
state, but E. B. EcKlroy will enter the
race against him In the convention. If
he fails in this attempt the latter will
take a renomination for school superin
tendent. Frank Kigler, of Oregon City,
would like to have that place, too. T.
1. Geer. of Salen, If. B. Miller, of
Grants Pass, and Geo. C. Brownell of
Oregon City, will contest for the con
gresxional nomination in this district if
Hermann gives it up. In the second
district, Congressman Ellis, of Heppner,
J. C. Leasure, of Pendleton, and C. A.
Johns, of Baker City, are the leading
candidates. S W. Condon will probably
be nominated for attorney-general.
On the democratic side of the house,
the most frequently mentioned candi
dates for governor are Attorney General
Chamberlain, J. K. Weatherford and
Judge L. L. Mc Arthur. Gen. 11. B.
Compson, ''jigadifr brindle" of the O.
N. G., and state railroad commissioner,
wants it and claims that be ran get the
votes of 7000 republican G. A. R. men,
in addition to the democratic strength.
Judge Bennett, of The Dalles, late can
didate for supreme judge, would, also,
be a strong candidate, if he would ac
cept the nomination. Regarding the
o'her state offices there seems to be
few aspirants, because, no doubt, of the
uncertainty of an election on that ticket.
John Myers wants to bo governor and
is looking for the plum to fall in his lap
from the democratic convention.
Congressman Hermann has announced
in a telegram from Washington that he
is not a candidate for governor but that
if the people of his dsitrict see fit to
renominate him for congress he will ac
cept. This decision opon bis part is in i
accordance with the wishes of the
majority of the people of the district who
believe that he can best serve the state

after which, through the kindness of
Mr. Jos. Simon, receiver of the East Side
EUvtrlc line, transportation was granted
to the entire party to Oregon City. I'pon

entire party into their handsome estab

that the Chicago journalists let out a

ever entered the field. It was as fol

Geo. Brownell, of the board of trade,
ably assisted by Messrs Rands, Burk

the party in hand n 1 visited the great
plant of the Portland General Electric
Co. Returning from there the party
visited the woolen nulls where death
reigned supreme not a spindle was
moving, and passed through its various
departments. Leaving the woolen mills
a special car was placed at the disposal
of tho party, through the kindness of P,
F. Morey and Manager Good, w.io never
let an opportunity pass to make it pleas
ant for the members of the press. A run
waa made to head of the falls, and the
party was shown all over the (treat under
takings of this company. Returning to
the city, a splendid luncheon was served
at the hotel, where President Brown
ell of the board of trade, made an in
teresting address of welcome, dwelling
upon the great future that Oregon City
has in store, and impressed upon our
eastern brothers that the day was not
far distant whea Oregon City would he
the Lowell of the Pacific coast ; her great
and magnificent falls, whose enormous
power was to be harnessed by wires of
steel, was to furnish the power that
would drive immense factories and create
great industries. He firmly impressed
upon the eastern journalists that only
8000 horse power was now in use and
that there was thousands more that
would soon be utilized in developing a
new era of prosperity for this section.
Mr. Brownell was more than eloquent in
his remarks, ami met a most nnthimiutic
applause at the tenniniation of his ad- i '
dress. Other short speeches were made

In the local political field tumors con

that it would be folly to try and pre

convention draws near new candidates
are likely to be sprung and some of those
now mentioned are likely to draw out of

During the past week there has been a
change made in the arrangement of the
Electric hotel which greatly adds to the
convenience of the hostelry. Heretofore
when guests wished to be shown to their
rosms they had to pass out on the street.
The changes consist in the cutting of a
doorway through at the landing on the
uiain stairs and the building of a stair
way in the office so that there will be no
more necessity of braving the element
in passing to and from the office and din
ging xoom and the rooms on the upper
to permit them to use it in that connec
tion. A note from the ENTKBPHisa corres
pondent at Carus, states that the people
of that locality are urging the name of
Frank Jaggar for county commissioner,
and urge as good reasons why he should
be nominated, h'S Alness and ability.
They also point with pride to the fact that
in all public positions which he hag held
he has performed the duties well, hon
estly and with prudence. Mr. Jairgar is
a man who has shown his ability to
handle business carefully and economic
ally, and he would make a good com
missioner. From Barlows comes the news that
Wm. Barlow of that place Is being urged
for a place on the representative ticket.
The people of Clackamas are mention
ing the name of Alex. Thomson as a
suitable candidate for county judge Mr.
Thomson was for four years county school
superintendent, and is pretty well and
fovorably known throughout the county.
H. G. Starkweather's name has been
suggested as a suitable candidate for the
legislature. He was mentioned for the
office of school superintendent two years
ago. Those best acquainted with him
say that he is not tinctured with thepop
nhstic idiosyncrasies for which his father
is noted .
