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.

In In r lifostoryof Edison Mr. Sarah

possessed an advantage of which even

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

when one day a phosphorous bottle on

removed Edison and bis apparatus,

at the next stopping place.
"It was a bitter moment, of which

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

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.

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. Redmond is tall
and handsome. His wife is a blond

A HINT TO ARTISTS.
Ona Way of Putting Rejected Exhibit to
Good Uaa.
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."

Learee Siberia.
Up in the great watershed dividing'
Siberia and Mongolia lives a peculiar'
race of people, half Chinese, half Tib

them. In fact, with the exception of riijy
or two enterprising explorer or geo

the Altai range, European eye huvft
never gnw'd upon the aboriginal Syoti

Siberian traders to these poor aborigines

The Siberian trader, knowing his
market, makes periodical jonrney intj
Mongolia. It i safe to say be does nX
take a kopek of money with him, bat Lib
drags behind him a well stuffed caravan
loaded with tea, tobacco, gunpowder
and shot, strings of beads for the wom

men. In due course he will come acrm
a Syot encampment.
The trader sits on bis wagon and bar

noisseur and with finger rendered deft
by long practice be sees and feels tho
smooth, warm skin of the little ani

safe to say that the skins do not coat
the Siberian trader much more than a
few pence each on the average. A tha

HIS HIGH PRICED EYE.
Bow a Clever Bonko Game Was PlayeC
oa a Son of Sonny Italy.
A well planned scheme was worked!
on a down town Italian confectioner
the other night whereby he lost oX.
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

get $100 upon returning it and he

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.
