believe he is the choice of the people irres

Mr. Gary was unfortunate enough to lose
thirty-one goats which he turned on the
Wand to pasture. It is thought they all
drowned trying to swim in the willows. Mr.
Gary, when appraised ol his loss, was some
what surprised, as the island is quite high
in some places with plenty of feed away
from the water. The goats were of the finest
Angora breed which he bought trom R.
Soott last fall and shipped to his island near
Wasbougal, Washington. There were be
tween forty and fifty in number. Mr. Gary,
know ing their propensity for eating twigs
and undergrowth placed them on the island
for the pusposeof clearing it which they had
partly succeeded in doing.

Stafford, March 2i. ThanKs to Observer
Blandford, Stafford has been enjoying a
week of snrishme, moonshine and good
times generally. Last Monday morning
the earth wa covered with snow which soon
disappeared, however, and farmers who are
fortunate enough to have hill land have
been busy plowing and seeding.
W. F, Rowton closed a very successful
six month's term of school on Friday the
23d, and wound up with an exhibition at
Larson's hall, which was filled with the
elite of the neighborhood and surrounding
country, who listened with evident interest
to well rendered program, lasting until
nearly midnight. The hall was well lighted
aud the stage neatly arranged and all, old
and young, carried out their parts without
hesitation, and from the negro representa
tion by Oscar Larson and K. Shryter to the
smallest child all knew their parts well.
Where all did so well we cannot name any
who might be said to have done best.
George Larson as the country beau acted
his part as though he had been there before
aud G. Renter and Delia Larson as Mr. and
Mrs. Fox were gotten op without regard to
expense, while their three smart girls,
aided by some sham robbers with masks,
and pistols effectually put to rout their
undesirable company. As I said before one
cannot designate by name all who took
part, suffice it to say they all did well, show
ing careful study and training. Mr. Kowton
has been engaged again for the spring term
with a vacation of two w eeks.

Messrs. H. Gibson and Story were out
from Oregon City to assist in organizing a
republican club. Owing to the lateness of
the hour of their arrival, and also to the
fact that the meeting bad not been adver
tised, it was considered best to postpone the
organization. The club, however, will be
organized some evening this week.
At present the populists claim a majority
here, but with a good rousing republican
club, with a platform foHnded upon rational
and intelligent principles, and with good
nominations to represent the republican
ticket, the populists at election time will be
found, like the man who fell out of the bal
loon, "not in it."
H. S. Gibson went out to his ranch the
first of the week to look after his stock and
other interests there.
Tbe question for debate at the club Satur
day night will be, Resolved, That if the
platform of the populists be enforced it
would result in the ruination of the gov
eminent. Marion Ward will be the chief
disputant for the affirmative, assisted by J
Simpson, Hal Gibson and others. For the
negative Jas. Suiter will lead, assisted by J.
Van Curan, John Brackett and others.
After the decision of the judges has been
rendered an invitation for any that choose
to speak on either side of the question will
be given. Whitti.f.r.
your corresHndenl at Cams, highly recom
mending K. C. Mnddock, of New Era, for
sheriff of this county. That is the entire
sentiment of Maddock's own precinct, and
all the adjoining precincts. And we can
truly and conscientiously say that if E. ('.
Maddock Is favored with the nomination
lor that office this year, he will poll in this
precinct not less than ninety or a hundred
voles, or almost the entire vole of tlm pre
cinct. Two years ago Mr. Maddock polled
the heaviest vote in New Era precinct that
any republican ever received here, the num
ber being seventy-live. When a man re
ceives such a compliment at home we may
know he is a favorite among the people;
and such is the case with Ell Cooke Mnd
dock of New Era. People who were de
ceived about him two ytursago, and helped
defeat him, cannot be deceived again, and
are how as greatly In favor of him as they
were opposed before. And Inasmuch as
Mr. Mnddock was unfairly dealt with In the
last election we think and feel It is the duty
ol the next republican county convention,
which meets on the 4th of April next at Ore
gon City, to give Mr. Maddock that nomi
nation, and a fair trial at the pollt next
Our republican club met at Brown's
school house last Friday evening, and al

Win. McDonald of this place stated last
week that he has a desire to sell out and
go to some paradise in Africa. Forty and
fifty years ago people In the East were anx
ions to sell out and come to Oregon in search
of a paradise, which we believe they will
come as uenr finding here as any w here else.
Ha.ei.ia, Mar. 27. The pleasant weather
of last week has made us torgvt the storms
end unpleasant winter. Farmers are busy
early ana late preparing lor seeding as
spring seems to be here.
Thusj having bop yards are plowing and
grubbing them. The demand for hop roots
has placed a good price on what is generally
an unsalable article. The proosed reduc

stir among hop men here.

Pahk Place, March 20. The literary
society did not meet Saturday night owing
to the school house being in use by the ilal
Hazard Company, which performed two
evenings, Friday aud Saturday. This
proved to be an excellent entertainment,
fraught with exciting war scenes, with many
hair-breadth escapes for the hero, Old ilal
Hazard, the confederate spy. The play was
got up nuder the management of Prof. J.
W. Grey, and the manner in which It was
carried on proves that Mr. Grey under
stands his business. The management had
intended the leceipts to go to the Park
Place library, but later concluded to give
Mrs. Geo. Eight a benefit, so the Friday
evening receipts were turned over to her.
They amounted to about $22.
