The second biennial convention of the republican league of clubs, held in Ar mory hall Tuesday, was the greatest rep resentative gatherum of republican ever witnessed In Oregon. The attendance from localities outside of Multnomah county woe remarkably g'Kxl, and m il wa the Interest shown in the league meeting that there were com paralivelv few proxies of delegate from the county. This lealure wa reserved lor Portland. There were hundred of fully accredited delegate from club in Multnomah county, and there were hun dreds of delegate given eat aa repre sentative of club that had been organ ized for specific purjiose. There were over 000 delegates from Multnomah county. The apportionment of delegate wu one for each 25 member, and one delegate at-large for each club. The del egate accredited to Multnomah county, on this basis, representing a voting pop ulation of 22.500, or 2000 more vote than were cast at the presidential elec tlon, the combined vote of the county in November, 18tJ, for McKinley, Bryan and Palmer, being 18,448. In Multnomah county a number of men were elected from several different club thereby causing a bogu represen tation. It ha been noticed for several day that in the election of delegate from various club in Portland the names of Mr. Simon, Mr. Mackay, Mr. McLaughlin and other have appeared, each being elected from several differ ent clubs. Till method was practiced to ruco an extent that the list in Mult nomah county was swelled to several hundred more than it should have been, while the outside counties with an hon est representation were left to the mercy of the mob of heelers in the metropolis. All about the aides and back end of the convention hall were stationed a par tisan rabble standing who were not del egate and whenever a viva voce vote was taken these striker were on band with their voice to vote with their boss. Not satisfied with this additional bo gus strength, Wallace McCamant and Henry E. McGinn lost no opportunity to attempt to precipitate a factional con troversy, but thank to the effort of II. M. Cake. 0. W. Fulton and C. B. Moores every effort tending to this was defeated and McGinn and McCamant roundly hissed for their action. Finally the convention settled down to business alter a report of the creden tials committee had been read. The lollowlng resolution were unan imously adopted: Whereas, The paramount Issue which is now before (lie American people, di viding political parties and engrossing the attention of all patriotic citizens, is the financial question ; therefore be it Resolved, That this league of republi can club of Oregon cordially reaffirm and approves it belief in the financial plank of the last republican national convention ; and be it further Resolved, That we accept and approve of the speech of President McKinley at New York, January 27, 1898, a the cor rect exposition of this plank and the monetary policy of the republican party ; Resolved, That we are in especial accord with the administration and its wise and efficient secrotary of the treasury, Lyman J. Gage, in their efforts to resist silver monometalisra and to give additional strength to our present financial system. The election of officers was the next order of business and when C. W. Ful ton's name was proposed for president, that goutleman rose and declined the honor, at the same time placing the name of Claud Gatch, of Salem, before the convention. The officers were all chosen by acclamation, and from that time on perfect harmony prevailed. Estray Notice. Strayed or stolen roan cow, light face, rubber bell strap with bell attached.

EiIImiii's Kaperlenee la Newspaper Making- Wa Nut Happy One. In In r lifostoryof Edison Mr. Sarah A. To'di y relates tho following con ccmiiig tbf "Wizard:" "Having been successful a a news seller, Kdisou lost no time in becoming an editor and publisher, and 1 like Gar rison: tWnt nl of help? II knew bow type were net. la bad a daunttnaa spirit and a prea. "True, Tom Edison's press only con sisted of a disused set of type purchased for a nominal som, and his combined printing oflloe and editorial sanctum wa a dilapidated luggage van, bat it possessed an advantage of which even Printing House square cannot boast it wu migratory. The van converted to this novel purpose wa attached to the train on the Grand Trunk railway, and appropriately enough the paper wa en titled The Grand Trunk Herald. "A further venture wa Panl Pry, In which, If any one may be excused a pnn, the editor 'pried' into things In too free a manner, and some individual, incensed at bis fun at tbeir expense, dipped bim into the river to cool his imagination. Fnrtber disaster followed when one day a phosphorous bottle on set in hi laboratory and nearly act the train on lire. The conductor promptly removed Edison and bis apparatus, printing and chemical, to the platform at the next stopping place. "It was a bitter moment, of which Edison cannot think witbont feeling over again the sense of utter hopelessness and desolation which came upon him when be saw the train whirling off while he stood alone and forsaken among hi broken goods, hi ear tin gling with a brutal box which injured his hearing for life." DIDN'T RECOGNIZE GOULD. Story of at Man Who Thought tha laaa Icr a Bunko Bteeror. Once when the late Jay Gould went to Murgaretville, N. Y., with bis pby sicfau and private car, be called on his old friend George Decker, a retired merchant of the village, who was for merly a clerk with Gould in Roxbnry. Every one who knows Mr. Decker well calls him "G," and this was what Mr. Gould said to him: "Hello, 'Ul' I goes yon know me this time, don't you?" A few yean before Decker, while in New York on business one afternoon, was suddenly confronted on Broadway by a dapper, bluck eyed little man, who grasped bim by the hand, exclaiming: "How are yon, bis. Decker? I am glad to we you." Mr. Decker looked the little man over from bead to foot, and hurriedly an (wered: " Yes, so am I, bat I don't know yoa, ir. Good day." "But, hold op," said the other, "aren't yoa George Decker of Margaret ville?" "Oh, yes; that's all right," respond ed Decker, "bat I am in too great a hurry to be interviewed today, my friend. Yoa have struck the wrong man." "Yes, perhaps," said the little man, "bat my name is Jay Gould. Don't yoa know me?" "Jehoeaphatl" exclaimed Decker. "I took yon for a coufidonoe man." Phil adelphia Pruoa, MetaJlisod Wood. The following process, invented by Mr. Rnbeunick, for metallizing wood, is thus described by Los Mondes: "The wood is first immersed for three or four days, according to its permeability, in a caustio alkaline lye (calcareous soda) at a temperature of from 75 to 00 de grees. Thence it passe immediately into a bath of hydrosalpbite of calcium, to which i added, after 34 or 86 hours, a concentrated solution of sulphur in caustic potash. The duration of this bath is about 48 hours, and its tempera ture is from 85 to 60 degrees. Finally the wood is immersed for 80 or 60 boars in a hot solution (85 to 60 degrees) of acetate of lead. The process, as may be seen, is a long one, bat the results are surprising. The wood thus prepared, after having undergone a proper drying at a moderate temperature, acquire un der a burnisher of hard wood a polished surface and assumes a very brilliant metallio luster. This luster is still fur ther increased if the surface of the wood be first rubbed with a piece of lead, tin or sino and be afterward polished with a glass or porcelain burnisher. The wood thus assumes the appearance of a true metallio mirror and is very solid and resistant Invention. Tannyson and Birds. Agnes Weld, a niece of Tennyson, speaks thus of the poet in The Contem porary Review: "Much as Tennyson no ticed every individual tree and plant, bird life had a still greater attraction for him. He was muoh touched by the faot that the caged linnet loses the red plumage from its head and breast at the first molt after its captivity, and never regains thorn, and he thought of devoting a whole poem to the deep yearning for liberty of which this was the sign and type. And one reason he climbed almost daily, when at Fresh water, to the summit of the Beacon down was because he loved to watch the wild, free flight of the sea gulls cir cling around its lofty cliffs." Contrary Infant. "My wife oouldn't go to the concert last night because the baby threatened to have oronp. " "That was too bad." "Yes, and now she is hopping mad because the baby didn't have croup after all." Chicago News.

Then they blow the horn, and bunny come ont in quick order. Protective snd Patriotic i At the recent dinner of the National AasM latlon of Wool Manufacturer in Boston, Congressman Russell of Connec ticut characterized the Dingley bill as the best Tariff meaxore ever enacted In this country, bat he urged that all ear nest Protectianists and patriotic citizens give careful and sealou attention to the uhject ol foreign market. "Next to a Protective law, which establishes and maintain the home industry," said Rep resentatiye Russell, "I want American lines of transportation to carry American business to foreign market. Give to the American (hip the same support I which you have given and asked for the American factory." That is sound doc trine alike from the standpoint of protec tion and patriotism The one thing needed to complete the American scheme of promoting internal trade and foreign commerce is that the building and sail ing of American ship shall be treated as an American industry. Once assured of that, there will be no lack of American vessels to carry American commerce. KISSED HER ON A BET. Rha Was a ftal ration Laaal Ha, Bar fins band Traveling Men Didn't Know That. A clever trick wa worked by Walter Redmond and his wife at Union station by which several traveling men were duped out of their money. At the end of a long seat in the waiting room wa a pretty and modest looking young wo man attired in a Salvation Army uni form. Sbo wa very intent upon a pa per which she wa reading aul paid lit tle attention to the crowd or traveling men standing near her. Aside from the crowd was a well dressed yonng man, who was walking back and forth by the newsstand puff ing away at a fragrant cigar. Finally a member of the crowd of traveling men remarked upon the beauty of the little Salvation Army worker. All eyes were fixed on the little woman, and she re ceived many compliments. The prosper ous looking young man who had been walking near the group of drummers drew near to the crowd. He, too, wa (truck with the appearance of the wo man. "I'll give any one of yon fellows f 15 if you kiss that girl," said be. Those in the crowd took the dare. One spoke up, however, and said to the stranger who had offered the money, "I'll bet you $20 that yoa can't kiss her." The stranger hesitated for several sec onds and then said : "I'll just take that bet." The money was put up, and the stranger, who had given his name as Walter Redmond, walked over toward the little woman in uniform, and, after bowing profoundly, took a seat by her side. At first the woman seemed to be very indignant, and the traveling man thought he had the $20 won. A minute later, however, Redmond's arm stole around the woman's waist The specta tors then began to open their eyes wide. One of them said: "That fellow has a whole lot of influence over that girL It may be that he is a hypnotist" Red mond talked for probably two minutes and then kissed the woman. Redmond walked over to the stake holder and received his money. He then started from the depot The little wo man quickly arose from her seat, and, taking bis arm, walked to Ninth and Broadway, where the couple took an East Broadway car.

They were riding on the Fourteenth street cars and their conversation was edifying. The man with the long hair was evidently a sculptor, and his com panion, a large, jolly looking fellow, was trying to persuade him to present a work of art to some society woman who had a mania for collecting brio-a-brao and articles of vertu. "I told her that yon would, I thought, in time present her with some memen to, a statuette illustrating your peculiar style. Was I wrong in saying so?" The soulptor answered indignantly: "I know her value of art, and I tell you she cannot distinguish between manu factured trinkets and works of art In faot, she thinks all artists are manufac turers and onn turn out statuettes as easily as the rich Btove ornament man who gave her a nickel plated mule. Then, too, a brass fixture artist gave her something from the brass foundry, and she thought it great. Never, in my judgment, could she appreciate a true work of art" "Then yon refuse to give her a sam ple of your work? Remember, she has great influence. " "I do not refuse. I'll give her that model in plaster of paris which was re fused by the committee last month. She will think it great, whether or not the committee did."

About 3 p. m. a man who bad one good eye and one gloss eye came wandering along the street and stopped at thia Italian's fruit stand. Be stooped over to look at some of the fruit when un expectedly his glass eye fell from ita socket down among the banana and oranges. The pretending purchaser at once be gan a diligent search for the missing glass eye. With both hands be clawed into the fruit, scattering it in all di rections. The Italian came forward and told the stranger to stop. The one eyed. man explained that his glass eye hadL dropped down there and that he wanted -to get it The Italian became eur-ed and toliL the stranger to come around in the even ing and he could get the other eye. Ths man explained he w as a stranger and wonld not be here in the evening, but if be (the Italian) found the eye ha should bring it to his hotel, where $10 would be paid to bim. An hour later another man oama along, pretended to kiuke a purchase; and while fingering around in the fruit suddenly espied the wouuertul glass eye. The man from Italy made a grab for it, but was too late, as his would be cus tomer already had it Both claimed ths eye, and a quarrel ensued. The Italia patched matters up by giving the stran ger $50 for the eye, thinking he would get $100 upon returning it and he wonld have $00 clear. He went to the hotel with the eye to get the $100 that he was told awaited him there. He found thut no such man had been there and no $100 was left there for him. He then saw how be woa worked and notified the police. Pitta burg Commercial-Gazette. Sheep Tleka. Every one who ha sheep knows the tick, the worst pest of this animal, that does serious harm to the young lambs without suspicion of the cause to tha shepherd. This reddish brown creatnra is a wingless fly aud a very greedy blood sucker. A dozen of them on a lamb will quickly suck the little one dry. It is to be looked after at the time of shearing, when these insects go for shelter to tha lunibs. It is found mostly where tha auiinal cannot reach it on its head, buried in the skin, sucking the blood. Its skin is tough, and ii is not easily crushed with less than a blow of a ham mer. In small flocks it is t ot much of a job to go through, with a pair of small scissors to cut the ticks in two, but where the flock is over a score it will be necessary to dip the lambs. Exchange.
