The Portland Telegram, Inde-
"pendent Republican, has been fig
wing on the problem of the next
governor of Oreeom In an editor

sentiment in matters political ebbs

heaves and rushes heavily in an
unexpected direction . The heavy
majority of yesterday for one party
Is in no sense a guarantee that the
same party shall necessarily win to
morrow. This fact is especially
emphasized now, the Telegram Bays

split" in the dominant party, that it

heavily Republican, he was elected
Atttorney-General, and in 1900 he
was elected Prosecuting Attorney

of the votes cast in this county. It
is quite natural, therefore, espec

'The Benton county pamphlet
sent me, is a real work of art, and
a great credit the Citizens

especially attracted by . the conserv

rather under than overestimates,
and in this respect- it stands far
above the ordinary gushing, over

to the effectiveness of the book to
one as distant irom trie scenes re
presented as I am. Oae thing is
certain, the book has materially
strengthened my confidence in Ben

fail to investigate your beautiful

Keal estate here is on the boom.
ThiB week over 100 land seekers
came in, but I think they are buy
ing mostly unimproved land for
speculation. There is also much
building going on. I. expect to
find a buyer for my place soon and
get out West in the course of a few
months, I would be' glad to be
footloose now. bo that I could get

but a strengthening, invigorating tonic as well. While it heals the irritations
of the mucous membrane, it also builds up the constitution and purifies the
