Good Dkmand fob Laiiok. The hun
dreds of men going to Alaska from all
parts of Oregon will cnuso watres to be
good here the coming summer, In fact
the demand for laborer will probably
exceed the supply, especially as the
harvest season draws near. The Alas
kan rush will work to the advantage of
both the farmer and the wage-earner, in
that the farmer will trut hotter prices lor
his products which will cuublo him to
pay better wsges for labor. Should,
however, the future of Alsska not prove
whnt Is expected and a reaction set in,
Oregon's supply ol laborers would greatly
exceed the demnnd and the crash would
prove serious. Lot us hope this will not
come lo puss, and that the gold fields of
the far north will furnish employment
for the thousands that will seek fortunes
Bankrupt We offer for sale our entire
stock of groceries and fixtures at less
than wholesale prices. If you want to
lay in a supply now is your timo to buy
yourself rich. Ail goods sold at private
salo for cash only. E. F-. Williams, the

What Tim IVm Nxien. Restaurants
and lodging house have been established
In New York and London at which au
commodutlons are provided at the low
est cash cost. The New York palace for
the poor oxlond its hospitality to the
thrifty as well as to tho impoverished.
The London restaurant Is less broad In
its scope, but no less rigid in lis econ
omy. The proprietor proposes to sink
$500,000, If need be, in demonstrating
hi ability to serve a substantial meal
for 8 cents. While there Is more phil
anthropy than business In these schemes,
one cannot but ask the question If more
good would not como to the poor by en
abling them to earn more than 8 cents
with which to procure a meal than in
competing with bulging keeper and res
taurants who are trying to earn a Hying
by providing lodgings and serving meal
at a little higher price theu the aemi
charitable Institutions establish. When
one man ha to pay interest on his capi
tal and another can spare from his abun
dance the capital needed, the former can
see only bankruptcy in tho end. The
fact that the millionaire's motive was
charitable, anil the fact that the poor
prollted by his IHniralily, doe not im
pair the force of his t-nterprlse In what
should be the fluid of legitimate compe

1800, amounting to $100, was paid,
Lyon In his answer, alleged that be alone
was responsible for the payment of the
note. Htone and Dakar set up that when
the note became due, the plaintiff ex
tended the time of payment without
their knowledge, and that they were
only sureties, and but for one year, and
were not liable on the extension. They
futher alleged that when the note was
due, Lyons was able to pay It, and if pay
ment had boon urged he could have been
made to pay, but since and during the
timi of the extension he bad become fin
ancially embarrassed, so that he cannot
liquidate. The plaintiff's contention was
that the allegud extension carried with it
no valuable consideration and therefore
wus of no force and effect, uion which
point the court Instructed the Jury.

WHO THE DISTURBERS ARE
The following remarks woro niarlo at Portland last week before
tho mate lenguo by loaders of the alleged factions in Oregon, which
demonstrates who tho-diHturlxirs aro beyond any doubt. Contrast the
sentiment exprcsHud by McCamant and McGinn with that of Cake
Mr. Dunlway, at 3 o'clock, asked if
any word bad been received from the
committee, and being answered In the
negative, suggested that it be the sense
of the convention that the committee on
credential be discharged, and the con
vention pass Itself on the credentials of
Wallace MjCamaiil In view of the
fact that the com nittee on credential
had refused to obey the mandate of the
convention, I move that a new commitee
on credentials be appolnled.coiiRUtlng of
J. W. Ilobbs.of Yamhill. auti Mitchell;
F. J. Taylor, of Clatsop, Mitchell repub
lican; 8. D. Aiken, of Lane, anti-
Mitchell, and Kolert Mays, of Wasco,
Mitchell republican. I move that these
men be appointed to act with the secre
tary and do tlielr duty a a committee.
Henry Mctlinn I listened with a
great deal of kind feeling to ' the words
from the chair this morning. The chair
said that this meeting of republican clubs
waa Intended to re unite the republican
party In this great state of ours; that we
were assembled here for the sole purpose
of reaffirming the principles of the repub
lican party, as they were announced in
the St. Louis platform, so thut it might
I hi known by the republicans of the en
tire nation that the republicans of Ore
gon were entirely In accord with the sen
timents of the republican party of this
nation. Hut how does this expression,
coming from him, of a desire upon the
part of the republicans ot Oregon to see
a re-united party, harmonise with bis
appointment on the committee of cre
dentials of men alio are known to tie
bluck-leg and who are known to be
scoundrels. 1 do not moan to impugn
our chairman for one moment. I have
known him for years. We were at the
bar of the supremo court of the state of
Oregon at the same time to be admitted
to the legal profession. I know bis ability
as a lawyer and I know his Integrity as
a man, but I cannot believe that the ap
pointments be bus made of a man as a
member of this committee of a man
who Is known to be without character,
who 1 known to have doue nothing in
this community for a long time but traf
fic In politics I sm certainly compelled
to say that I cannot agree with the chair,
that I cannot agree with bis advisors, in
selecting this man on the credentials
committee to represent this county.
II. M. Cake Such proKsed action
meets with my hearty condemnation. I
do not see why the committee appointed
by the presldentcannot perfoim its duty.
(Jumping on a chair) I am a republican.
When I look upon this great aggregation,
I feel certain that good-will will prevail.
There should be no factional fight, and
the action of our president should not be
C. W. Fulton It seems to me that it
is about time that we stop this wrangling,
this talking about faction, and turn our
faces to the front and look at the enemy
there. I never expected to hear in a re
publican convention what J, have heard
here today proposals to nominate a
committee from this faction and that
faction. Gentlemen, when the republi
can party shall have a single person aa its
champion, then I am willing to admit
that it la but an aggregation, a congrega
tion, of factions. It will then have lost
Its usefulness, it will have lost its place In
history and I shall feel that duty does
not call me to its ranks any longer,
Gentlemen of the convention, can we
not rise above this feeling, this factional
feeling, this personal fueling? I say
that there is no one man that represents
the republican party, either in I'ortland
or elsewhere. Generations shall come
and go, with their individuals, but the
eternal principles for which the republi
can party stands will live forever. I
want to see the republican party of the
state of Oregon rise above all feelings of
this character. I want the republican
party to remember, I want the republi
cans of Oregon to not forget, that they
stand for principles and not for men
Now, gentlemen of the convention, let
us not hear the voice of faction lifted
aloft here again. I believe that the peo
ple of the state of Oregon will rise up
with one voice and say, 'Down with fac
tions I We stand for principle.' Let ns
all get under one banner, not the dirty
flag of any faction. I cannot march un
dor the (big of any faction ; it is not
clean enough. There are but two flags
under which I can march. The first is
the grandest and noblest of all that floats
on the breezes of the air, which is the
Stars and Stripes. And there is but one
other flag beneath which I can march,
which is the flag of the whole republican

The steamer Elder sailed from Portland
last Saturday night with a full cargo ot
freight and passengers, including the
government relief expedition. The fol
lowing persons lrom Oregon City were
passengers on the Elder : L. 11. Dool it

Mr. and Mrs. George Bittner, Harry

What pleasure is there in life with a
headache, constipation and biliousness?
Thousands experience them who could
become perfectly healthy by using
DeWitt's Little Early Risers, the famous
little pills. Geo. A. Harding.
John T. Morgan, of Idaho, after prac
ticing in the courts of that state for many
years and acting as judge for six years,
was only recently admitted to the bar.
The Incident attracted a great deal of at
tention at the time, his case being gener
ally referred to by newspapers as an ex
ceptional one. J. II. Upton, ofLanglois,
Or., writes to the Oregonlan to say that
there have been many similar cases In
Oregon, a number ot well-known men
having acted as Judges without having
been admitted to the bar. At such Mr.
Upton names Wm. J. Bryant, Peter G.
Burnett, Geo. II. Williamt (not admit
ted until 1883), P. P. Prim, 0. J. Mc
Fadden L. L. McArtbur, B. F. Bonham,
Judge Olmstead, Orvllle Piatt, William
Strong, John Kelsay, A. J. Thayer.
The four last named had been circuit
Judges of the second Judicial district,
and were at the same time Justices of the
supreme court of Oregon, being elected
a such. The statement that these men
had not been admitted lo the bar it tech
nically correct and might be taken as a
reflection upon their standing as attor
neys, but It ought to be viewed in that
light. Under the law a it existed at
one time in Oregon, attorneys were, upon
satisfactory exmination, admitted to prac
tice in a certain circuit by the Judge of
that circuit or district, and according to
the custom, at least, were allowed to
practice before the supreme court. All
these men referred to by Mr. Upton had
been admitted to practice in the court cir
cuit, in which tbey bad applied for such
privilege. Upon application to the su
preme court and presentation of bis cer
tificate from the circuit Judge the attor
ney was admitted without further ex
amination to all the privileges of the
state bar. Therefore the application to
the supreme court was, in early times,
merely a matter of form, and it is
not surprising that many attorneys dis
regarded that step in their progress to
ward the summit of judicial fame.
Items la TIU Draining.
There are two extreme in tile drain
ing. The beginner is apt to think tile
drains are only needed where water
stands ou the surface iu hollows and
boa to be drawn off, bnt when this ia
done it leave the soil in these hollows
so much dryer and better fitted for crop
ping that the farmer sees that even the
uplands, that bad been supposed dry
enough, need draining also. Usually
the first drains are put in too shallow.
That, if continued, means a large, use
less expenditure for tile. Nowhere
should nnderdraina be dug lea than
I feet deep. They will then drain
perfectly I to 1! rods on each tide of
tbt onderdrain. The soil will bold ao
much more water with a deep drain
that it will not require larger tize than
will shallow one. American Culti

The Marketing Point
OF CLACKAMAS COUNTY
The factory towns of the East are notei
for affording the best market to the neigh
boring farmers and gardeners in proportion
to the population of any of the towns in
that section. The reason for this is that
the people of these towns have a fixed in
come upon which they can always depend,
and, as a consequence, they are liberal buy
ers, paying cash for all their purchases.

this county to share in the profitable ma
