Wood May Bo Induced to Withdraw
In Favor ot Oeer Scheme Not
Apt To Materialize.
Sale. Jan. 22. Ont of the multitude
of interests are born many strange vaga
ries, and not the least mysterious of all
is a great general political swap to make
Geer senator, and carry the party split
iato the coming congressional election
in this district.
The first step in this direction ia to
get C E. S. Wood out of the way and
give the democrats in the legislature an
easy way to walkinto the Geer camp, as
some of them were walked over to
Mitchell in 1901.
The Portland Oregonian recently had
-. "So little stir was created among the
democrats today by receipt ot a letter
addressed to Representative Galloway,
from C. K. S. Wood, democratic candi
date for senator, advising democrats to
vote for ex-Governor Geer. The con
tents of the letter have not been gener
ally divulged but it is known that Mr.
Wood takba the position that under the
Maya act the people of the state last
June declared themselves against him
and for Geer. His argument is that it
is thus mandatory upon the entire legis
lature to cast a united ballot for Geer."
A nrominent democrat at Salem has
to vote for Geer, and in return have the
Geer men in this congressional district
assist in the election of a democrat
congressman to succeed Tongue next
spring. They argue tht such a trade
was virtually made in the interest of
Chamberlain without Governor Geer
himself becoming a party to it, although
not discouraging it. They could con
sistently make the same kind of a trade
if it would ensure them an anti-adminis
tration ronuressmin from the first dis
trict. Of course, there is no authority
for the proposition, and at present the
nl.n rst in the. minds of a few man-
Hcers. who will no doubt assiduously
cultivate the trade microbe. Journal.

If the lives and achievements of many
of the old comrades at the Oregon Sol

and published in a book it would re
quire a volume of considerable size t
relate the many stirring chapters in the
career of these grand old veteransi inci
dent to the thrilling scenes enacted dur
ing the Ci-il and Indian Wars. In
this connection we quote the following
from the Chicago Inter Ocean, regard
ing a thrilling incident in the life of E
J Lamnson. a veteran of the Civil war
and now an inmate of the Homo.
Cant. Lucas, the old commander of
E J Larrrson 's company having been
akcd hv the publisher of a war book
entitled "The bravest deeds of thewar"
to write an incident for publication, re
sponded with the following :
"The coolest bravery I witnessed dur
ing my term of service was at Leesburg
Mo. General Tom Ewing, with a bat
talion of the Fouiteenth Iowa Veteran
Inf.ntry, numbering 106 men and two
or three hundred Missouri state militia,
was forced to evacuate Pilot Knob by
the advance of Marmaduka's and She!
hy's commands, said to number- three
or four thousand troops. Ewing at
tempted to reach Rolla w hen he evacu
ated Pilot Knob. After a running fight
of twenty-four hours, his tired and hun
gry lilt'e command, being pressed in
Hunk and rear, took refuge in a deep
cut of the railroad, at the village of
Leesburg, at dark.
The lines of the enemy were drawn
well about the beleagured little com
mand. The commands of the enemv
were plaiuly heard while adjusting
their lines for, as General Ewing be
lieved, a night attack. In front of the
beleagured forces and inside of the ad
vance lines of the enemv was a large
barn with several haystacks surround
ing it. General Ewing called for a vol
unteer from the trenches to steal inside
and through the enemy's lines and set
tire to the barn and haystacks, in order
to light up the field in front of the be
leagured little band and about the lines
of the enemv. Earl J. Lamson, a cor
poral of Company B, Fourteenth Iowa,
offered himself as the desired incen
diary. I warned him of the imminent
danger of such an undertaking and the
few chances of escape from capture or
death. He replied : ! fullv compre
hend the danger but General Ewing be
lieved it necessary for the safety of this
command that the barn be fired and 1
can t do mv country a better service
than to attempt to preform the service."
He stripped himself, stole over the
banks of the railroad cut, and was soon
out of sight. As we waited with baited
breath for the result minutes seemed
hours. Soon, however, a commotion
was discovered among the enemy s
troops, and about the same time a
twinkling light was discovered in the
upper part f the barn through a gable
window. About the same time shots
innumerable were heard and the noise
of trampling men was carried to ns on
the night air. In the midst of the noise
and excitement Lamson came bounding
towards the railroad cut with the speed
of a race horse. As he leaped over the
barricade that bad been hastily erected
on the brink of the cut, he drew a long
breath and said : "She's well fired,
bovs." By the time he reached his
comrades the fire was going in full force.
and the whole grounds surrounding the
railroad cut were lighted np so that
with onr mnskets and two Parrot guns
we had with us we were soon able to
beat Marniaduke back out of range
The hay horned nearly all night, and
maintained a hunt so tne garrison was
saved from capture. Daylight came
and the enemy keit at bay until Col
onel Beveridge arrived from Rolla with
reinforcements, and Ewing conducted
his brave little band safely to Rolla.
Earl J. Lamson is alive and is an in
mate of the Soldiers Home at Roseburg.
He is hale and hearty and one of the
most genial and jovial old comrades at

Hunt arose to oppose the amendment.
"This bill," said he, "his been very
carefully prepared and drawn by men in
every way competent to prepare and

were offered. They were all regarded

"Of the $500,000 appropriation which
this bill calls for, $50,000 is to be used
for the erection of a rmanent Lewi

$50,000 is to be used for the purpose of
sending an exhibit to the St. Louis Ex
position. This reduces the uni which
it is proosed to expend on the I'JOo fair
to $400,000. On the best of authority
make the statement that a sum equal to
this has already been subscribed to the
fair fund being raised in Multnomah
County. These subscriptions will be
paid. I know a prominent Portland
banker who stands ready to pay iu his
subscription in full as soon as this bill
shall have been passed an J approved. I
know a prominent Portand manufactur

'Now as to my authority for the state

been raised is enough. No evidence i
needed that such an amount w ill be

the Senate from Douglas is sujrfluous.
We do not need it."
I am surprised," said Marsters, tak
ing the floor again, "that any Senator
should object to this emendment. Iia

sum it is proposed to appropriate, what
is the harm in adopting the amend

here as a filibuster, but 1 do wish to see
that in passing this bill we take proper
precautions and exercise proper judge

to requiring a guarantee that the Fair

Mr. President and fellow Senators, we

Fair Commission, and we have placed
no obligation upon them and exacted no

Pierce of Umatilla arose to say that he

a year ago, but it was so now ; thanks to
the campaign oi education waged by the
press of the state. Pierce was doubtful
as to the expediency of the project, but
people wanted the fair. So be it. He
would vote for it.

discussion closed amid a general laugh.
Booth announced that he would vote
for the bill, although he was not in
sympathy with the objects and beliefs
of the promoters of the fair. He did
not beleive the sentiment of the people
was unanimously iu favor of the project,
and he though' that a campaign of
