umphal demonstration at the rail read
station. There Judge ' McFadden,
W. E. Yates, Pap Hall and a number
of small boys, all bearing fUgs and a
grand illustrated banner were in wait

aligbtsd brief but touching speeches
were made by the members of the; re

time of tears of joy. The procession

drum and lead by the reception com

The Eaitfcful and the New Senator
, Some old Memories.
lyOcal republicans generally, so
far as they have expressed them
selves, seem to be satisfied with
the new senator. A certain con
tingent of the party 1 of course is
jubalent over the result.
One thing in the late struggle that
has been more or . less marked, is
that there seemed less interest in
the outcome than in former contests
of the long-'! rawn-out kind. During
the great fight on Dolph, it is of
record that petitions were carried
all over Benton county, for
signers, and that their prayer asked
Brother Cooper to stand firm or to
flop another flop or two according
to the factional complexion of thev
man carrying the paper. Various
local statesmen made divers and
sundry pilgrimages to the capital
and there told Cooper, both "where
he Was at," and where he was likely
to be at, if he didnt swallow the
right dose.
In the hold-up legislature, when
Mitchell did not get re-elected
Salem was full half the time of
Bentoa County and Corvallis states
man, representing both sides ot the
controversy, and the war was car
ried into the very heart of Afric.
The names of local citizens, great
and small, public and private, who
were there, could be reeled off by
the dozen, but it would be criminal
here to stir up old memories, and
harrow up souls that are now mel
low with peace and bliss.
Two years ago, when Mitchell
did get elected, interest in the out
come was widespread all over the
county,, and, there was a lining up
of patriots on both sides and war
paint -was everywhere to be seen.
In the present struggle, it has
been different. There has been at
least on the surface, neither agony
nor wrath, v The brethern have
been disposed rather to doze and
dream away their time after the
manner of Representative Gault,
and let ' the legislators themselves
fight out the battle, though it .. is
said the good biother Hayden did
get numerous letters, reminding
him of his duty to his country, the
state and the grand old party. So,
with the rank and file, listless as to
the outcome, the result comes to all
not as a requiem or funeral dirge
on a winter blast, but with the gen
tle murmur of brooks and the per
fume offfowers on a summer breeze.
Its all right, the faithful say.

sister Miss Lillian Glass, who was
reported by wire as very ill in' a
hospital in that city. No details
were learned. Miss Glass has been
taeching school in Crook county,
and her presence in Portland was a
surprise to friends.
The present favorable weather
conditions are a source of pleasure
to the several farmers all over
Willamette . who are over stocked
with sheep, and have suffered more
or less loss on account of the unus
ual shortness of grass. Farmers in
town yesterday say the new grass
is already appearing and that with
continuance of favorable weather,
will be ample for sheep teed in a
week or 10 days. Many farmers
have escaped loss altogether, though
not a few have suffered.
