whose abilities and personal integrity ot

more In securing the aid Oregon needs in
one session than the present incumbent
could secure in a long . Jlfe. While Mr.

Just before 8 uYtock on the evening of
tlie 33d as dhas, te Young was engaged
tn convention with some gentlemen in
tlie couiittug-rooto of tlie CitronteU office.
San Francisco, Jtey. . M. Kalloch. the
son ot the Mayor of San Francisco, entered
tlie office, drew a revolver and commenced
firing at DeYonug. Mr. DcYoung re
treated behind the .counter to his desk,
tlieu lurned upon Ids assailant, pistol in
band, when Kalloch. leaning over the
counter, fired again, tlie ball entering
DeYoung's mouth. DcYoung raised his
pistol as if to fire, but his strength failed
him, the pistol was not dlscliarged, and he
tell to the floor, expiring In a few mo
ments. Yonng Kalloch was seized as he
was retreating from tlie office, and con
veyed to prison. The officer reports that
he was tlie coolest maa he ever saw.
Kalloch refused to be interviewed, and
gave no reason for the cold blooded mur
der. Five sliots were fired by the murder
er, only one of which bit lie Young. In
the absence ot any explanations from the
assassin, the cause ot the act is attributed
to the fact that a pamphlet lias recently
made its appearance in San Francisco,
containing a report ot the Kalloch (father
ot the assassin) scandal in Boston, and
other matters ot a scandalous nature in
tlie life of said Kalloch. senior, which it
was believed Cha's: PeYbring caused to be
publ'.lted while on his recent visit East.
31. II. tie Young, brother and- partner in
the Chronicle with- deceased, denies tliat
lie (tlie deceased) lia I anything to do with
tlie pamphlet. At'thollmeof the shoot
ing, young Kalloch filled the pulpit of a
Baptist church in Oakland, lately filled by
Kev. Mr. McLanortr, wlio was but recent
ly engaged in holding revival meetings in
It will be remembered tliat a few months
ago, Chas. De Young made an attempt to
kill Kalloch, Sr.. which resulted in excit
ing the sympathies of tlie people for Kal
loch, and electing him Mayor of San
Francisco. Tlie trial of deceased for the
attempted shooting of Kalloch, Sr., was
to have occurred at an early day.
Of tlie Repnblican candidates for the
supreme bencli tlie Statesman speaks as
follows : K. B. Watson is one of the lead
ing lawyers of Jackson county, at one time
holding the office of Probate Judge there.
He was admitted to tlie bar In l!68 and
since that time lias been in active practice.
He is spoken ot as a man ot excellent
ability and one eminently fitted fur the
Supreme Bench. It Is not necessary to
introduce Major Ttml. now State Senator
trom this county, to the people of Salem
or jiieuihers ot tlie bar of this State. He
Ims stood In tlie front rank as a lawyer of
profound ability and a man of riiie schol
arship. His services as a soldier in the
ranks of the Union army during the Re
bellion were not only tlie credentials with
which he went before tlie Convention,
ne was nominated because ot his emi
nent fitness for ilie position, and it speaks
well for Ids character and ability that by
those with whom lie is the most intimate
he is lield in th lughest estimation and giv
en the most cordial snpport. John B.
Waldo is a pioneer Oregonlon, well
known to the people of Marion county,
where his earliest years-were spent; He.
like Mr. George, was formerly a student
of the WllhttnettMJniversJty, graduating
In the class ol 193. " For tlie past fifteen
years lie has been practicing law in Port
land, Oregon. So far as we can recall
he has never held official - nosition, not
from any want of fitness, but from a nat
ural aversion to political strife. He is a
quiet unobtrusive, scholarly gentleman, a
'book-worm," and perhaps a harder stud
ent than any other member of his profes
sion in the State. His peculiar teuipera
jmenf, his studious habits, his fredoni fn-in
political entanglements, his quick percep
tion and his keen analtic mind all combine
to commend tlie fitness of his nomination.

Tony objecbT to fonl, WaMo and Watson
as candidates lor tlie supreme bench, because
they are. as lie thinks, too young; and he
sneeringly asks If tlieir mothers know
they are out. I would like to ask Tony
which Is bi tter for Judicial office, a young
man of intelligence and education who is
a student imbued witii principles of honesly
and spurred on to win public favor by it
bright future in Waiting, - or an old man
without honesty or capability ? But is the
age of these candidates any objection?
MnJ Lord Is about thirty-eight ; Mr. Waldo
thirty-five, and Mr. Watson nhont thirty
tour. I.nrd dime from Ilaware. and
ha been living in Oregon nearly fifteen
years. Waldo is a native of this state,
rhf son of an old pioneer; nud Watson
came quite early. nearly,thirty years ago.
They are all young men of greatly more
than average ability, and the crowning
feature of their character, as testified to by
tlieir life-long acquaintances, is Imnesty.
In every true seiiso of the word they are
men true men. They are regarded by
tlie bar as of superior legal ability, and
Lord and Waldo are specially regarded as
cast, mentally, in a judicial mold. Watson
Is less known at this end of tlie state, but
those who do know him speak ot him In
like manner. "" l - '
The question then recurs, having men
of ability, education and legal -learning, is
Tony correct when lie" says tliey are too
young, in their swaddling clothes, as it
were , The hitoj-y. of our . State, falsi ties
Tony's statement aiid relegates him to his
original position of the' "linage oi nonenti
ty presiding over Iftahlry. "When fir-t en
tering upon the bench our Oregon judges
were of age as folio .vs : Peter G. Burnett
about 33; O. C. Pratt, at 30: Wm Strong,
at 33;. Geo. H. Williams. :it .'10. though he
had previously, for lour years, been a
circuit judge in Iowa ; Cyrus Olney, at 35;
M. P. Iie.idy, at present one of the most
distinguished ornaments of the American
circuit bench, at 2S; R. P. Boie. aliout
3S; P. P. Prim, at 35, though he had no
natural gifes and was better littiMl for his
otigina! occupation of wagon driver; W
W. Page, at 30; It. K. Shatton . at 3S; K.
D.Siiattuck. at 3fl; Joseph G. Wilson, at 34;
h L. McArthur, one of. the best ot our
democratic judges, at 27.
So the intelligent American mind all
over tlie union also brands Tony with
silly stupidity in allrging too much youth
against thc.-e candidates of the people.. Ot
the justices of the supreme court ot I lie
United States tlie following and 'many
others whom I have omitted, became
judge; in the thirties: Joseph Story,
appointed associate justice of the U. S.
supreme court id 1311 at 35; at 34 John
Marshall declined an appointment as
associate justice of that court; John Jay.
first chief justice ot U. S. supreme court,
was chief justice of the N. Y. supreme
court at 32; Win. Johnson.associate justice
of tlie U. S. supreme . court, was circuit
judge in South Carolina at 32, ami on the
L . S. supreme Dencli at .is. ny appoint

judge circuit court of Georgia at 34.
If tram warren, a native oi aiassaciiuseiis.
and for forty years on tlie bench in Geor
gia, was elected by tlie Georgia legislature
a circuit judge at 31. So in every state ot
the union the grentest judicial intellects
will lie found to iiave . cntereu on tneir
judicial carvers before tliey . pissed .their

In a talE wifb a "visitor recently, Presi

understandings . anil misapprehension ;
but I think in general a good 'di-gree ot
harmony now exists, and that the admin
istration of affairs is on the whole such as
meet approval.-' ! have been often accused
of taking optimistic views, but I think
throughout the country In genera! tlicre
has been a revival of just such views the
past twelve mouths, and I am not sure
but tliat everybody Is better off for having
taken hopeful and reasonable views ot
the future of this great country."
