TUey Favor tlie Principle Involved,

to Binckam's Bill.
The majority of the Republican nomi
nees for the Legislature have declared
for direct primary nominations. A. S.
Dresser, candidate for Joint Representa
tive from Multnomah and Clackamas,
and George Lu Story and George T.
Myers, nominees for Representatives
from this county, were quoted yesterday
as being in favor of the new plan in elec
tions. All the other nominees except
George R. Shaw and C. "W. Gay, who
are out of town, were seen yesterday. L.
B. Seeley and W. E. Thomas said they
desired to investigate the matter further
before giving opinions. All others pro
nounced in favor of primary nominations.
Donald Mackay I am in favor of any
thing that tsill better conditions, so far
as, elections are concerned, and always
have been. In my previous service in the
Legislature I voted for the Australian
ballot, the primary law and the registra
George W. Bates Direct primary nomi
nation is the proper thing, and I favor it
.Sylvester Farrell If direct primary
nominations have been tried in the East
and found satisfactory, they ought to
answer for the "West. I favor the plan.
J. Thorburn Ross I am In favor of
such election reform as will give us di
rect primary nominations. However, I
do not accept Mr. Bingham's bill. "We
have found his registration law to be de
fective, and It may bo that his primary
bill is defective.
A. L. Mills I consider direct primary
nominations a good idea.
F. H. Alliston I am emphatically in
favor of a bill that will meet the situa
tion. Frank F. Freeman I favor direct prl.
John K. Kollock A law authorizing di
rect primary nominations would be ad
visable. J. C. Bayer I favor the plan.
E. E. Mallory I consider direct pri
mary nominations the proper" thing.
All the nominees said, like Mr. Ross,
that, while they favored the reform, they
could not commit themselves to the
The Grand Republican Rally.

stration In Gomez Hall, Russell street. Al
blna, next Tuesday evening, promises to
be a success, and, from all lnd'cations.
there will be an overflow meeting on the
outside. Wallace McCamant will delher
the main address o fthe evening. City
Attorney Long will be asked to speak to
the overflow meeting, should it be neces
sary. The Southern Pacific band will start
from the corner of East Twenty-first and
Clinton streets at 7:15, in a special car
and go straight through. The bard wi'l

the car at the intersection of "Williams
avenue and Russell street for the hall. At
the close of the meeting the same car

Last of City Nominations.
At 5 o'clock jesterday afternoon City
Auditor Gambell closed tho list of nomi
nees to city offices, and It will henceforth
be impossible for any aspirant for office
to get his name on the official balioL.
There arc 16 efflces on the list, including
the Councilman for the 11 wards, and for
these 1C offices there are 4D candidates.
For the office of Mayor there are five
nominees, all of whom will probably not
,bo elected. Five Is the largest number for
any one office and two the smallest. In
"""many of the wards there are three candl-"
dates for Councllmcn, and in some there
' New Roosevelt Straight CIul.
The new Roosevelt Straight Republican
Club, composed largely of members of the
Edmunds Club who refused to follow his
shifty course, will hold a public meeting
Monday evening at Gruner's Hall, corner
of East Seventh and East Stephens
streets. All the regular Republican can
didates are jnylted to be present Since
the new club was started o.ulte a number
of the "members of the renegade organiza
tion have signed the roll. All others who
wish to do so can have the opportunity by
calling on "William Neidermark. on Haw
thorne avenue. It is expected that a
strong club will result from the effort.
Second "Warders Rally Ajraln.
The Second "Ward Republicans scored
another success in their meeting of last
evening at the club hall, Gllsan and Fif
teenth streets. Speeches were made by
D. Soils Cohen, C. "W. Gay, Hanley H.
Holmes, J. M. Long, J. "W. Bahey, Ed.
"Wereln, Scott BrooKe, Charles McDonald
and R. L Glisan. Sociability reigned af
ter the speeches, and the meeting became
a smoker, cigars being passed around.
The straight ticket was the only thing
thought of, and the Second "Ward Repub
licans are confident of success In keep
ing at the fore on the fourth of June.

CREAMERY FOR ELKTON.
.Efforts Making- to Establish One at
Traveling Freight Agent. Lounsbury, of
the Southern Pacific, lias been In "West
ern Oregon, with a view of collecting
data in the matter of establishing cream
eries. Speaking of the opportunities of-
fbred at Elkton, Douglas County, for a
dairy, he said:
"Elkton Is situated ahout midway be
tween Drain and the Coos Bay coast, and
Is accessible by team over a picturesque
wagon road winfllng through a mountain
ous country. Leaving Drain, the road
follows Elk Creek for 10 miles, crosses
several mountain ranges, and meets Elk
Creek a quarter of a mile above the point

where It empties Into the Umpqua River, ,
just below Elkton, 1C miles from Drain.
This small vlllaee. with its two mer- 1
chandlse stores, blacksmith shop and i
hotel, is the trading point for the farm
ing community scattered along tire Ump
qua River basin for a good many miles
In either direction. A grist mill was for
merly located on the banks of Elk Creek
near Elkton, but was carried off. In 1S95
during a period of high water.
"Growing grain end raising cattle ara
the principal occupations of the farmers
in this section. Their only outlet for their
products are via Drain to the railroad or
via Scottsburg to tidewater. The present
low price of grain Is 'having the effect
of driving the farmers out of the wheat-
growing Dusmess, ana many are in a
state of wonderment as to what branch
of, farming -they .had best turn their at
tention. Every farmer owns a few milch
cows; some have fair-sized herds. Dairy
ing and stockralslng seem to offer about
the only practical solution to the prob
lem of farming to advantage.
"This section is so remote from railroad
facilities that a market is not available
for the dairy products of the individual
farmer; hence much Interest is being
made manifest by the principal citizens
in an effort to secure a creamery at Elk
ton. Efforts are making by Charles Beck
ley, the prime -mover in the enterprise,
to ascertain the number of milch cows
that can be guaranteed to furnish the
necessary milk supply. It is conceded
that nothing can be made or grown on
tho farm that will sell for as much per
pound as butter or cheese. The manufac
ture of such products seems to offer the
only practical means by which the farm
er In a remote section of the country, far
from a railroad, can condense his chops
into a compact and portable form for
shipment to market."
STILL HOPES FOR A RAILROAD
Ex-Governor Pennoyer Thinks South
Portland "Will Get Connection.
The Front-street railroad proposition
Is not dead yet, according to ex-Governor
Pennoyer, who says the matter will be
agitated until South Portland obtains an
""all-rail outlet to the terminal grounds.
"We have spent $20,000 thus far in putting
our sawmill In shape," said Mr. Pennoyer,
"and we will have to spend considerable
moro in constructing docks, a railroad
switch and roadways. We would not feel
justified in this, did we not hope the City
Council would soon permit us to ship our

above Jefferson street Is suffering for lack
of a rail outlet, and our demands, If com
piled with, will help rather than injure

that the railroad company would 'be re
stricted, and then there would be no pos
sible danger of evil results. "We live In
hopes of ultimate justice."
When the franchise is granted the rail
road company will purchase half the block
bounded by Front, Jefferson, Water and

to make connection with its line at the

ROSE FAIR A SUCCESS
"WONDROUS EXHIBITS OF ORDI
NARY GARDEN PRODUCTION.
Eastern Visitors A mazed at the Gor-
gcoH Display Goodly Sam lor

SALEM. May 19. The annual rose fair,
which closed this afternoon, proved to be
the great success that was anticipated.
The only cauDe for regret is that no suit
able hall was available for holding the
fair. The Council Chamber, large though
It Is. proved much too small for the num
ber of persons- who desired to attend, and
many were turned away last night be
causo they could not gain admission.
Owing to the remodeling of the opera
house. Salem is now without a good pub
The fair was conducted under serious
difficulties, for the recent rains marred
tho beauty of the roses. Had the fair
been held a few days later, more perfect
flowers could have been obtained, but
tho date having been announced, It was
not found practicable to make a change.
But. regardless of this disadvantage, the
flowers exhibited did not take second
Ta The fair was pre-eminently an ex
hibition of roses, and almost every vari
ety of that flower was on display. They
were all roses that grew out of doors and
that had no protection from the weather.
Winter or Summer? Some of those that
were awarded prizes were grown on
bushes planted Indiscriminately In a front
yard flower garden. Only In the last few
weeks has It been known that a fair would
be held, and no opportunity was given for
the careful training of roses to be placed
on exhibition. In short, the roses entered
for prizes were only such as can be grown
in any flower garden In the Willamette
Valley. But, If Easterners who visited
the fair are to be credited, the flowers
on display yesterday would put to the
blush any rose that grows In a hothouse
in the same latitude on the other side of
the Rocky Mountains. A rose which,
placed Inside of a hat, will touch all sides
at once. Is not to be found In every clime,
but such are not uncommon here.
' But in the -matter of size, roses are not
alone in their supremacy. Eastern deal
ers in flower seeds and bulbs take pride
In advertising pansles "as big as a dol
lar." Pansles of the most beautiful dis
play of variegated hues were on exhibi
tion ,at the fair yesterday, and some of
'them were of such size that. If placed on
top of al6-to-l souvenir dollar, they would
hide It completely from view. Even the
IC-to-l dollar is small beside the Oregon
The value of the roses on exhibition at
the fair. If they could bo suddenly trans
planted to an Eastern college town on
commencement day, would be enormous.
Visitors at the fair told stories of the
prices paid for flowers in the East that
would scarcely be believed by a native
Oregonlan who has not been East of the
Rockies. The Idea of paying 50 cents for
a rose the size of half a peach seems ab
surd, but higher prices than that are
paid for smaller roses at commencement
time in many college towns.
Tho Importance of holding a rose falr
annually lies" chiefly in the interest It de
velops in flower culture. If It were pre
determined that a rose fair would be held
each season, many more would be careful
to produce greater varieties of flowers and
more perfect specimens. The Salem Flor
lcultural Society has omitted holding a
fair for several seasons, and people have
let their flower gardens deteriorate. While
the society has not yet determined what
course will be pursued in the future, the

Minnesota Stock Raiser
Joseph Roach, banker and cattle king, of
Northfleld, Minn., registered at the Impe
rial yesterday, on his return fiom an ex
tended trip through the cattle-ralslng re
gion of Eastern Oregon and Idaho, where
he has succeeded in purchasing some 500J
head. He found cattle everywhere In ex-
cellent condition, on account of the unusu
ally mild "Winter and grassy. Spring. His
purchases were yearlings and 2-year-olds,
which ho will ship by stock train to his
pastures on the Yellowstone, In Montana.
lll ' -
Mill i I':, a, .'
Ho Is to ship one trainload tomorrow,
from Baker County.
Mr". Roach thinks the young cattle which
are raised on the pastures east of the
Cascades, are better suited to his purposes
than those found on the farms and dairies
Immediately along the Coast, as the for
mer are bred for their beef-producing
qualities, while more attention is paid to
good milkers west of the Cascades. The
bunchgrass calves are hardier, and, being
permitted to run the ranges with their
mothers, ore stronger and grow more rap
idly than calves raised by hand in the
farming and dairy regions. For this rea
son, ho. is willing to pay more for one
than the other. In his recent purcha&3
I he paid $18 for yearling and ISA for
; 2-year-olds, and he Is still ra the market
ior ail ne can get.
In a recent visit to his Yellowstone
ranges, Mr. Roach found the pasture
suffering somewhat from lack of rain.
' Considerable "wet snow," he says, fell
last Winter, and this gave the grass a good
j start, but since the advent of Spring,
, there has been a great dearth of Ehowers.
There Is yet plenty of time for rain in that
t region, and the drought may be broken
any time. Mr. Roach will leave today for
ijaxer uity. but his wire and daughter will
remain in Portland for a month or two.

the northeastern portion of the city and

AT A RIPE OLD AGE.
Death Claims Sirs. A. M. Camming,
of This City.
Mrs. A. M. Cummlng died yesterday at
1:20 A. M., at the residence of her son,
Dj. William A. Cummlng, 628 Flanders
For the past year Mrs. Cummlng had
been In rather a precarious condition of
health, never having entirely recovered
from an attack of the grip thaticame to
her "a year ago last "Winter. During the
past month she was suffering from gas
tric fever, this being the immediate cause
of her death.
Mrs. Cummlng had been a resident of
Portland eight years. She was born No
vember 9, 1S2S, In Vermilion County, Illi
nois, and was married August 26, 1S52, to
A. M Cummlng, who survives her, to
gether with three children Dr. William
A. Cummlng, the well-known dentist, of
this city; Mrs. W. A. Wetzell. now of Salt
Lake City, well known In Portland be
cause of her long and Intimate connection
with the musical Interests of this city,
and Mrs. Shannah Cummlng Jones, the
prominent church singer of New York
Since early childhood Mrs. Cummlng
had been an active member of the Meth
odist Church, and had many faithful aid
devoted friends in church circles here In
Portland, where she was much beloved
"because of her sterling virtues of neart
and character, her unselfish devotion to
her family, and her loyal service and ten
der care toward those whom Providence
had" consigned to her for protection and
guidance. She was essentially a home
woman. The hearthstone was her altar;
and many were the loving sacrifices of
personal -comfort she placed upon it For
the past four years she had made Jier
home with her son, gladly expending all
her valuable energies of heart and brain
upon his family of motherless children
This morning at 9:15 her husband, A. M.
Cummlng3, leaves with her remains for
Farmer City, 111., her old home, which
will become her last resting-place.
MACHINERY FOR NOME.
Wolff & Zvricker Iron "Works Busy
The Wolff & Zwicker Iron Works has
just completed a shipment of mining ma
chinery" to Dawson City, which comprises
a number of novel features that make the
machinery peculiarly adapted to that far
northern clime. Fuel being a rare and
expensive article up there, the boilers, of
which three were shipped, were speclally
deslgned by the Arm so as to economize
as much as possible on this head. They
are built entirely of pipe, even the grate
bars being used for circulation and heat
ing surface, and encased In heavy sheet
steel, lined with asbestos to reduce loss
of heat by radiation to a minimum. Be
sides these boilers six engines, one cen
trifugal and six reciprocating pumps, to
gether with conveying and sluicing ma
chinery. Piping, etc., were included in
the shipment, the weight of which ag
gregated over 15 toi;g. The Arm Is busily
occupied In completing several large and
a number of smaller-contracts for sup
plying the Cape Nome trade, and their
shipments, directly and indirectly to that
country, during this season, represent
several cat leads.
Off for Nome.
A party of four well-known East Side
residents will go to Nome together. They
are Joe Ben Lane. Harry Stutsman, H.
Lambert and H. Stanton. - They have In-
corporated and will operate together. They
will start on the Elder. Their prepara
tions and packing have been about com
pleted. They will go well provided fo:
emergency and to make money If others
can. It Is much better to go in a com
pany, and then stand by each other
through every difficulty that may arise.

How Children Are Sent tot
Now and then some city paper contains ',
the story of a case of child murder,
which revolts and appalls the reader. The
mother hugs her own darling close to her
breast as she thinks of that'little. white,
cold body, with the marks of fiendish
fingers on the throat. She kisses her
baby passionately with all her life in her
lips, ready to be spent for the helpless
nursling she loves.
And yet Just such a mother as this, de
voted, tender, loving, may bo responsible
for a case of infanticide as,pltlful as that
other, though less terrible than it. These
cases of child destruction are Just as true, J
Just as palpable to science as If the moth
er had launched the boat to carry her'
child over the cataract to destruction. j
Let any woman who fee's Inclined to
doubt the truth of these statements ask J
herself how many prospective mothers
make the utmost provision In their power j
for the health and happiness of the un
WHAT MATERNITY MEANS, j
Is considered by women generally with '
relation to themselves rather than to their
offspring. They do not stop to think that
their physical and mental condition will
stamp the coming infant, and that that
Infant's life will be a lifelong echo of the
mother's moods and feelings during the
pre-natal period. The mother owes it to
the child to take care of herself. She
should be comfortable in body and com
posed in mind. She should be free from
nervousness and pain. She should eat
well, sleep well and enjoy life without a
moment's dread or anxiety for the future.
The majority of women would cry out
that such a condition is impossible for
them. They always suffer in the months
of waiting. They always have nausea
and headache. They are always fretful
and nervous, and dread the time of trav
ail which is to come. And the average
woman thinks of these conditions as the
debt which her sex must pay to Nature.
But these conditions are unnatural. These
aches, pains and sufferings are due to
womanly diseases, and these diseases can
be cured, and are being cured every day
in the year.
"I have long thought It my duty to-
write you a few lines to let you know
what your 'Favorite Prescription' has
done for me," writes Mrs. Euphemla Fal
coner, of Trent, Muskegon County, Mich.:
"I am twenty-seven years old; have been
married ten years'. I am the mother of
four children. My first two babies were
still-born, and I suffered everything but
death. My friends all thought I could
never recover. I was reduced to 109
pounds. When I was three months along
for my third child I was taken with hem
orrhage or flooding, and came near hav
ing a mishap from female weakness. For
two months I was under the care of our
doctor, but was getting weaker all the
time until one day I happened to come
across one of your little books, and I read
It through, and the next day I sent and
got three bottles of 'Favorite Prescrip
tion and one bottle of 'Pellets.' I Im
proved so fast I continued to take your
medicine until baby was born, and he is
healthy and all right. He Is four years
old. My baby girl is two years old. My
health -has been good ever since. I now
weigh 165 pounds."
WONDERFUL BUT TRUE.
The cures of womanly diseases per
formed by Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip
tion are wonderful but true. It Is won
derful that a woman who had not borne
a living child should bear two healthy
children as the result of the use of "Fa
vorite Prescription." It is wonderful that
from "suffering everything but death" at
the birth hour a woman should find her
time of travail made practically painless
when "Favorite Prescription" had been
taken In preparation for the event. It is
wonderful that a condition, of weakness
and emaciation should be changed to a
condition of health and heartiness, the
greatness of that change being best ex
pressed by the figures showing the in
crease in weight from 109 to 165 pounds.
No figures could show the gain In happi
ness which comes with such a cure.
All this Is wonderful, but It is also the
exact truth, testified to over and over
again in. the cases of half a million women
cured by "Favorite Prescription" and Dr.
Pierce's advice and treatment.
"Words can't express how grateful I am
for your kind advice and good medicines,"
writes Mrs. Ada Brooks, of Kirbyville,
Taney County, Missouri. "I suffered for
four years with what four physicians pro
nounced ulceration and prolapsus. Also,
Inflammation of bladder and urethra. My
case was chronic and complicated. When
my first child was born (five years ago),
I was in a very bad condition, suffering
from bladder trouble. My health had been
very poor for some time, when I was
taken down bedfast. I was In a critical
condition for five months. Had several
good physicians, but kept getting worse.
Could not bear to be moved from my
bed. I kept getting woree all the time.
Had been confined to my bed five months
when I wrote to you. I received your re
ply very soon and then dismissed my phy
sician and began taking Dr. Pierce's med
icines. I took eight bottles of his 'Fa
vorite Prescription and 'Golden Medical
Discovery, and I began to get better at
once: In two months I could sit up in a
chair and kept getting better. In four
months could do all my housework. In
cluding washing and sewing. I think your
medicines save me from the grave, and I
will recommend them to all suffering
women. Several of my lady friends are
taking your medicines with good effect.
"Please accept my sincere thanks. I
hope your medicine may benefit others
as It has me, for I am well and strong.
Tf nmr one tcbhft to wrltA to me about
J my case I will gladly answer, giving at!
particulars, if they will enclose stamp
DON'T STAY SICK.
There is nothing so useless as the
necessary suffering of women from dl
eases peculiar to their sex. These dil
eases are absolutely and altogethf
curable by the use .of Dr. Pierce's Favol

of the periods the "Prescription"
lates them. If there are debllltatii
drains, they are dried up by the "Pr
scrlption." If there is Inflammation
ulceration "Favorite Prescription" curd
It, and just as surely cures female weal
ness, bearing-down, pains and other for
of feminine disorders.
