Hon. T. T. Gear baa not been heard
from lately, but a number of newspapers
in different parts of the state are urging
him as a candidate for goyernor. The
Roseburg Plaindealeb savs: "It ia
generally understood tbat Hon. T. T.
Geer will be a candidate for tbe nomina
tion for governor. If bo be will have
quite a number of friends In this neck of
the woods, and will make a good run If
nominated." There ia no name, more
popular in Yamhill at this time, and
they seem to regard him in sbout the
same light over in Tillamook. We quote
tbe Herald: "Tbe logic of political
events in Oregon seems to point to tbe
nomination and election of Hon. T. T.
Geer, of Marion county, for goyernor.
Mr. Geer would be an ideal man for the
position. A clean man. qualified for tbe
position, unidentified with any political
faction, and one who has the welfare of
tbe common people of Oregon at heart,
being himself a member of tba farming
community, be would be a true repre
sentative ol tbe daring race of men who
have built up Oregon." McMinyille Re
