TOUR OF COUNTY
REPUBLICANS OPENED CAMPAIGN
AT MILWAUKIE TUESDAY.
An Enthusiastic Meeting Addressed by
Senator Brownell, Mayor Dlmlck J
and County Candidates. 1
The llepuhlUans of Cla'kuinua county
opened their county cumpulim at Mil
wuukle Tuesday nlglit With an enthus
iastic meeting. There was a large at
tenduni'H of Interested and enthusiastic
voters. The meeting was held at the
W. O. W. hall, the principal addresses
being delivered by flenutor Oeo. C.
rirownell and Mayor Grunt II. Llmlck.
both of this city, while several of the
leglliitlve and county candidates were
represented, f. K. liallard, the post
mnster at Mllwaukle, wus the chairman
of the evening, and the Mllwaukle band
furnished some splendid music preceding
and during the speaking. The people of
Mllwaukle hnve a band organization of
which they may be proud. Under the
manngement of Mr. J. C. Wetzler, the
bund Is well organized and plays with
The first candidate presented to the
andlenee was Frank Jngrjer, of Carua,
who will leave his farm next winter and
attend a forty days' seslon of the legis
lature at Bali m. He made a short talk
and right to the point. If elected he
promised to do at all times what he
considered was to tire best Interests of
the people of tho stale and Clackumas
county. Bherlff Shaver Is not much of
a public riienker, but he gave the voters
to understand In a very few words that
If re-elected to his present office he
would conduit that department In the
same economical manner that he has
during his flret term.
Ahsi'Sfoi' Nelson was Introduced aa
"the man who had received more cus
stni! than nnv other man In Clackamas
county." Mr. Ne.eon said that while
such might be the fact he had at all
times during his administration endeav
ored to deal fairly and snuarely with
every taxpayer In the county, and If
elected to a second term would continue
the same policy.
Treasurer 'a hill was brief In his re
marks, but said he would strive to give
the rami' satisfactory administration of
affairs during his second term that he
bud given the taxpayers In his flint term.
School Superintendent .Inner, after
speaking plcamntly of his Democratic
opponent, who resides In Mllwaukle"pre
clnct. spoke of the Importance of the
work that nttaehed to the office of school
County Clerk Sleight said that he was
a man of few promises. "When on the
campaign two years ago.' he said. "1
promised to give the people of Clackamas
couniV a business-like, economical ad
ministration. As to whether or not I
kept my pledge, my books are an open
record and I submit them to the votera.
If re-elected I only promise to continue
the good work.' Mr. Sleight thought
that with a continuance of the Republi
can administration for another two
years the debt of Clackamas cohty
that has been carried for many years
can be perhaps wiped out. and he ex
pressed a desire to be a member of the
countv administration that should bring
about that welcome condition of affairs.
Mllwaukle being the home of Recorder
Stevens, that officer received a splendid
ovation win n he was called on. Henry
thought thai a county officer coining be
fore the people frtr re-election should
have but little to say. His official record
should speak for him. He said he haa
tried to fill the office of county recorder
to the best m( his ability and promised
that If re-elected he would do so during
his second term .
Mayor Dlmick devoted his remarks
largely to a discussion of county politics.
He called attention to the fact that
Clackanius county Is one of the most ex
pensive In the state to maintain because
of the heavy cost that Is contracted In
tho building of roads and keeping them
in repair. While tho expenses of the
county nre Increasing, still by careful
management the present county offlcera
had managed to reduce the Inlebtedness
of the county. Mr. Dimlck read from the
statutes of the state and clearly ex
plained why taxes In Clackamas county
this year are heavier than a year ago.
He showed that Clackamas county this
year had to raise for state purposes
alone something like $38,000 more than
was raised last year. Mr. Dlmlck made
a very effective talk that made a good
Impression on his auditors. The Demo
cratic theory and complaint that the
doubling of the assessable values of the
county necessarily doubled the tax levy,
was entirely exploded by the time Mr.
Dlmlck had finished quoting law. The
mayor Is an Interesting talker and la
actually one of the best story tellers in
The concluding address of the evening
was delivered by Senator Brownell. and
It was an able effort. By way of Intro
duction, he aaid he had always regret
ted the fact that he was deficient In
story telling. He said that while he had
the reputation of being the biggest liar
In the state of Oregon, at the same time
It was Impossible for him to tell a story.
Referring to county politics Senator
Brownell called attention to a substan
tial reduction In the county's obllga
tiona and commended the present offi
cers, who are candldutea far re-election,
for the record ( they have made. The
senator concluded by discussing national
politics, briefly reviewing the Cleveland
administration In contrast with the
prosperous conditions under Republican
rule, that preceded and followed. Sta
tistics were quoted showing the remark
able prosperity of the country under the
Republican protection tarlfT policy.
At the close of the speaking a unani
mous vote of thanks itfaa extended the
Mllwaukle band for Its services during

TWO BANQUETS FOR THEM.
State Grange Elaborate Preparations
for Their Reception.
Indications now are that the thirty
first anual session of the Oregon Slate
Orange, to he held In Corvallla May 24th
to 27th. will be the largest gathering of
that character ever assembled In the
state. One hundred granges will be
represented by delegates selected In the
usual manner and several granges will
be represented by visitors, so that In all
probability there will be no less than two
hundred present. Inasmuch as the meet
ing precedes the session of the national
grange at Portland. It la regarded as
doubly Important that the patrons of
husbandry throughout the slate be ably
and fully represented In numbers as well
as Intelligence, so that all the varied In
terests of "the man with a farm" may
be properly and fully protected. E. P. j
W'olcott. master of the state grange of I
Kentucky, has ben Invited to sit with '
the state master, O. B. Leedy, In direct
ing the deliberations of the session, while
I'ast Masters R. P. Boise, Jacob Voor
hees and V. M. Hllleary will give special
care to all matters that look toward bet- 1
ter legislation, and treasurer Joe Hlrsh
berg will carefully supervise the finances
of the association. Owing to the special
Importance of the session, the meeting :
wll hold one day longer than usual, be

sessions will be held In Agricultural
hall, and two banquets will be spread.
The first will take place on Tuesday
evening at the reception given by the
granges of Benton county, and will be
enlivened with line music; also addresses
of welcome and responses by Judge R. P.
Boise, of 8alem, Mrs. Clara Waldo, of
Macleay. and others. The other banquet
will be "Flora's Feast," which will Imme
diately precede Installation of officers
on Thursday evening.
The hotels have offered the special
rate of $1 per day, and have agreed to
canvass the town for extra rooms, should
the usual quarters be overtaxed. So there
need be no concern given to visitors as
to suitable quarters. The Southern Pa
cific and C. & E. have given their cus
tomary one and one-third rate over
their lines, and It Is learned that owing
to the central location of Con-alls, which
la known as the "heart of the valley,"
many will come by private conveyance.

city of Corvallis will be at all trains to

A story is told that recently In Los7
Angeless. five prominent gentlemen of
foreign birth chanced to meet. One was
a Russian, one a Turk, one a French
man, one an American, and the other
an Englishman. The gentlemen became
bosom friends, and finally a champagne
supper was proposed, at which each
gentleman, to be in keeping with the
times, was to give a toast to his native
country, the one giving the best toast to
be at' no expense. Here are the toasts
The Russian Here's to the stars and
bars of Russia that were never pulled
The Turk Here's to the moons of
Turkey, whose wings were never capped.
The Frenchman Here's Jo the cock
of France, whoso feathers were never
The American Here's to the stars
and stripes of the United States of
America, that never trailed In defeat.
The Englishman Here's to the ramp
ing, roaring lion of Great Britain, that
tore down the stars and bars of Russia,
clipped the wings nf Turkey, picked the
feathers of the cock of France, and ran
like h 1 from the stars and stripes of
the United States.
The Englishman paid for no champagne.

Will Contest Case. The will contest
case of Peter Rasmussen, of Denmark,
against Fred and Peter Madison, of this
county, In the estate of Lars Anderson,
late of Highland, was heard before Pro
bate Judge Ryan lust week. Anderson
died in this city recently, leaving an
estate of $1200. and by the provisions of
a will that was afterfards probated, the
entire estate was bequeathed to the two
Madisons, who are nephews of the de
ceased. Subsquently Rasmussen, who
has the same relationship to the de
ceased as the Madisons. through his at
torney, Dr. Wm. Eisen. Danish vice
consul, of Portland, filed contest pro
ceedings, alleging that in a will exe
cuted prior to the date of the will that
was probated, Anderson had left the
Madisons one dollar each and had di
rected that the balance of his estate go
to Rasumssen. Rasmussen Is contest
ing the will on the grounds that Ander
son, becausse of the opiates with which
he was being treated, was not mentally
capable of executing the instrument of
last date, in which no bequest whatever
is made for him. Several doctors and
druggists were examined as to the
effect on a patient that would result
from taking the medicines that were pre
scribed for Anderson. The opinion of
these professional men differed widely.
Final argument In the case was post
poned until June 10, when it will be
submitted to Probate Judge Ryan.
