Leo Gerhard was born near Corvallis
Aug. 8, 1863. and spent most of his life
here, where he made many friends and

to himself; and whatever faults he may

be ever kindly remembered by those who
knew him best. There is truth in these
words of a poet who sings by the Pacific,

I find so much of goodness still;
In men whom men pronounce divine,
I find so much of sin and blot,
I hesitate to draw the line

At one o'clock the meeting was again
called to order, aud the resolutions pre
pared by the committee were sdopted,
delegates to the union parly, which metis
in Portland today, ;re elected, and an
executive committee appointed. None of
the details for uniting the several laetions
were agreed upon. It was, however, the
unanimous sextiincnt of all who spoke,
that union be effected.
A. L. McFadden announced that in
Benton county, the populist piimarics,
under the new system, were already under
way, aud if the union patty did not soon
auneuuee its plan of action and begin
immediate organization, the populist
ticket would be in the field belore the
unionists would assume shape, and it
would be extremely awkward, to say the
least, to then arrange a satisfactory fusion.
N. L. Raber and Eugei.e Palmer denied
that they were "Silver republicans," say.

are tryi" to combine, are yet at sea as to
the basis on which they will unite. The
biggest rock in the way is the parcelling
out of the offices.
The name is bothering some of the in
terested ones. Many of the populists
think that their name, standing for origi
nal reform, is good enough for any real
reformer. They say that a new canned
party will not be associated with any na

is an element of weakness iu practical

The Banks Have Money.
The recent statements of the national
banks of Oregsn show that there is com
paratively little demand for money. Na
tional banks, except those designated as
depositories for U. S. funds, not only re
quired to keep in hand or with approved
reserve agents, 15 per cent of the depos
its, or for every $ 100,000 of deposits,
there mast be $1,5000 cash iu the bank,
or where it can be immediately had.
The baik statements for December 15th
show that the majority of northwest na
tional banks have in cash or with tther
banks from 50 to 100 per cent of their
deposits. This state of affairs is not so
profitable for the banker, but it proves
the banks to be solid beyond suspicion.

national banks show up as follows:
