was started up in the closing hour of
the state democratic convention in this

democrats only as candidates on the

vacancies occurring on the ticket from
any cause, the places made vacant shall

Those who saw that the adoption of

agair.st it. After some debate in which
any creation of discord to mar an other

A Beginning at last.
Steamboat men between Oregon City
and Portland have long felt the need of
lights and buoys along the river and
they are grateful that the necessity has
at last been recognized by the govern
ment Though the need is not nearly
met the few now provided for will be
appreciated and will, it is hoped lead
the way to more. For the pant week the
work of placing these lights has been
under way and now Captain Farenholt,
lighthouse inspector, haa issued the
following notice to masters and
pilots plying on the Willamette river
between Portland and Oregon City :
"The following aids to navigation were

Perhaps never in the history ef
modem journalism has any newspaper
gained so rapidly in public favor as the
Chicago Inter Ocean. Within the past
two years it has, by adopting progres
sive methods and injecting push and
enterprise in all its departments forced
itself into the very front rank of Chicago
newspapers. That this popularity is
deserved is beyond question. The
publisher during this time, Mr. II. H.
Kohlsaat, has spared neither expense
nor effort to attain his ideal and he bas
succeeded. Uncomprisingly republican
on all National issues, the Inter Ocean
