Inaugurated Wednesday AfternoonAddresses Made by
Both the New and
Salkm, Jan. 14. In the presence of
the members of the Oregon legislature,
the state judiciary, state officials, a large
number of distinguished citizens, and an
assembly, of people which filled every
nook and cranny of Representative Hall,
George E. Chamberlain, democrat, of
Portland, was this afternoon inaugurat
ed Governor of Oregon. The oath of
office was administered by Chief Jiisti.v
F. A. Moore of the Oregon Supieme
Court. It was fouud impossible to com
plete the c invass of the vote in time fur
the inauguration to Iks carried out this
morning as had lieen intended. The
joint session tlif rvre was declared ad
journed at 11:30 to await the result of
the canvass. Upon its re-assembling at
2 p. m., the ceremony was carried out
with dispatch and according to program.
Governor Jeer delivered his farewell
message to the legislature before retir
ing, and cautioned the lawmakers not to
indulge in too much legislation. He ad
vocated special revenue measures to pro
vide for the Lewis and Clark Exposition
approriatioiifcand said we have had too
many changes in the state land Jaws;
that the state land office records should
be investigated. Of course in conclu
sion he could but endeavor to eloquent
ly impress upon the legislators the duty
devolved npon them to elect him United
States Senator, and in this connection
he called especial attention to the law
on the Senatorship.
After his inauguration, Gov. Cham
berlain delivered his inaugural address,

and knowing aa the miners retort that
a considerable of the shipment was of
coarse formation and should have been
left on the dump for mill and consen-

company may well feel that we have a
property to be highly pleased with and
worthy of zealously guarding as a divi
dend payer ot no small proportions.
While I am proud of our progress and
ability at anv time to command the

vise the more conservative mode for at

the S. P. authorities in regard to spicial
rates for ore' shipments, also the various
smelting establishments as far castas

that is of material value to smelting
