Mayor-F.leet of the City of
Thanks the Voters
I wish to express my moMt Hlneere
thankM to the voters of thin city who
so loyally supported me nnd eleeleil
me. AIho to the candidates on the
opposing ticket for their courteous
treatment during the very hrlef cam
I earneHtly auk the unanimous co
operation of t he citizens In working
for the common and united good
nnd welfare of the city.
K. II. llAHTWIO.
DO YOUR CHRIST
EARLY &" AVOip
THE BIG RUSHqq
Now that the city election is over we must
abide by the result of that action, and the
correct thing for everybody to do is to believe
that everything is for the best and keep right
on sawing wood.
There isn't a partical of use in sulking
now and piisusjng your best friends just be
cause YOUR candidates failed to win.
Your motives are undoubtedly pure and
sincere, but you must remember that the
other fellow has some privileges, too, and is
entitled to your good will as a citizen and a
neighbor. Life is too short to waste one-third
of your time quarreling over politics. A united
effort for the goad of all is the ideal govern
ment. To put It into an aphorism:
'He that troubleth his own house shall
inherit the wind."

ANOTHER SCALP jCAPT. C, P. McCAN
FOR LOCAL GIANTS! PURCHASES RACERS
In a slow and uninteresting game
of football played on the new
grounds west of the depot Sunday
afternoon, the Hood Itlver Giants
defeated a plcked-up team from the
Heights to the tune of 16 to 0 The
regulars "played horse" with the
Heights team from atart to finish,
snd about the only sensational feat
lire of the game was t he continuous
smoking of some of the regular men
during the game. The llrst quarter
resulted In no score, but In the last
three the regulars sent the ball over
the forward ass route for three
touchdowns, with two failures and
one successful try at goal.
An effort Is being made to nrrange
a game with The Dalles, but up to
date the outcome has not been made
known. The neighboring city boasts
a strong aggregation, ntul a match
between the two teams would be
well worl h seeing.
The Improved apple box press pat
ented by A. I. Mason was on exhi
