Primary and
Convention.

Pereuantto a call of chairman, the
Republican County Central Committee
met at Roseburg on March 12, 1004, and
Bet the 2nd day of April for the holding
of the primary elections and the Bth day
of April at 10 a. m. for the convening of
the County convention at the court
house in the city of Roseburg and pro
portioned the representation at one del-
egate at large and one delegate for every
teen votes or major portion thereof
cast for R. T. Bean candidate for su
preme judge on June 2nd, 1902, and
make the following suggestions that all
worthy to be sacrificed.
The reason assigned for the Cham
berlain boom is that the plans of Mr.
Hearsfs friends contemplate the
placing of too much power in the
California man. Oregon is the first
state to take action as regards his
Presidential fortune, and after this
state is captured, it is intended to
move on Washington, Idaho, Mon
tana and other Northwest states. If
success attends the efforts of Mr.
Hearst in all these, say those which
are unfriendly to him, he will have
placed at his back the intact North
west delegations to trade or do as he
pleases.
It has been suggested by some who
have watched the meteoric political
career of the man of many papers.
that be is really not a bona fide can
didate for the Presidency, but rather
that he desires on the other
hand to encompass a mighty political
following that his range of influence
may be stronger. This being the
case, say those who oppose Hearst,
what is to prevent him from voting
or trading his instructed delegates
in accord with any political deal
which he may see fit to make?

Russian Writer Says Sllertnan TflCtlcs
Will not Work In Present War
St. Peteksmikg, April 0 An otti-
cial report has been received from
General Kuropatkin and issued by the
war department, which gives the de
tails of another conflict between the
Japanese and Russians near Wiju.
Kuropatkin stales that news of
the fight came from General Kash
talinski, who is stationed near Turen
chen Island, off Matturza, not far
from Wiju. Tho Russians were the
aggressors, the volunteers making an
attack.
Kuropatkin says the Japanese had
five officers killed and many soldiers
wounded. The Russians had several
men wounded, but none killed.
Reports have been received here
that the Japanese are waging a cam
paign of war in earnest in the out
lying provinces and have totaly de
vasted Yongampo, a Russian settle
ment, and laid waste the surround
ing land, leaving it so barren that
neither friend nor foe could sub
sist without carrying full lines of supplies.
One writer in commenting on this
young man, with his future before in a local newspaper says: "The Jap-

Civil Bend Primary.
On the second day of the fonrtli
month of the fourth year of the rrisn of
Liters, the republican central commit
teeman of Civil Bend precinct, the re
publicans gathered together at the
llrocktray schoolhoute, as tjiev were
wont to d.o, for the purpose of nominat
ing a justice, a constable, electing dele
gates for the county convention and per
forming divers other dntlw which might
como before such a body.
Now, thero seemed to be a division in
the hosts of the republicans and the
leaders of each division were composed
of mighty men of valor who were well
.'killed in the arts of politics.
Behold, there was great excitement
as the time drew near to electing the
lelegates and Io, there was much but
ton-holing of voters. When Egcers, the
committeeman, quieted the uproar of the
multitude they entered the echoolhouse
Now, the two first men to be pitU-d
against each other in the election of tho
delegates were Nichols, the merchant,
and Simmonds, the assessor. The first
ballots were counted and liehold, each
man received the ha too number of votes,
Again, and yet again, even onto the
fourth time, the votes were cast, then
one man did desert Simmondsand Nich
ols was chosen. One man, Thompson,
and Eggers, the committeeman, then
came up and Thompson overthrew
Eggcrs. Next, William, sir-named Bux
ton, was opposed to Johnston, tho
school director, and William was elect
ed. Lastly, came one, Rose, arrayed
against Clayton, the player of wild
Ix-asls, and becanso of his valor Clayton
carried the day.
George, the son of Wixson, was nam
inated for the office of justice, the main-
tainer of peace and dispenser of justice
unto the people. One, Engene, sir-
named Hixeon, was chosen as candidate
for constable
Now, there prevails a vile enstora
among the men of America of chewing
the loaves of a certain plant and ejecting
tbe juice, mixed with saliva, from the
mouth. Many of these republicans had
contracted this habit, and some of them
regarded not tho custom of society nor
cared for the rights of others. Behold.
these put out tneir Bpittie, some one
pint, some two pints, and some even
unto three pints, on the Hoor between
the seats whore tho youth of tha land
were wont to sit from tiie second day of
he week unto the sixth day.
There was one. Brown, instructor of
the young, at the primary, and he bo-
enme very angry and likened those who
put their spittle on tho floor unto
arious unclean beasts and fowls, such
as buazards, swine, geese and democrnts
After tho hosts of republicans left he
poured much water on tho floor and
cleaned out tho effects ot tho primary.
While to doing ho muttered griovons
woma anu jus nunu was lined with
many unkind thoughts toward the
chowers of the weed. Omkqa.

structed the recorder to give notice to
property owners on th following streets
that it U their intention to have said
streets imrroveil: Kaae, from Douglas
to the sonthern extremity of Kane;
Mill, from Mosher to Burke; Fowler,
from Douglas to Deer Creek, and Doug
las, from Main to the top of the Deer
Creek hill.
Councilman Norman thought that
Pine street should lw included ;a the
list. He etnphasied. the urgent neces
sity of improving the street by decrib
ingthe futile attempt of vehicles to
travel on it, or rather through it, during
a funeral Monday afternoon. But it
was pointed out that last ye.tr a propo
sition to improve Pine street w.-u de
feated by a remonstrance from the
property owners, so no action on this
thoroughfare was taken.
Tho question of the hill of the Rose
burg Water and Light Co. was brought
up and disoiK-1 hut no final action
was taken. The committee appointed
to investigate tho matter, consisting of
Councilmen K G Micelli, C W Parks and
VV A Burr, reported as follows:
"We, your special committee to whom
was referred the claim of the Roseburg
Watcr & Light Company, would respect
fully report, that after fully examining
this matter, we find that the said Rose
burg Water & Light Co entered into a
contract with the city of Ro eburg on
tho 7th day ot Sept. 1901, by which con
tract they agreed to furnish to the said
city of Roseburg water for ten years
from the date of said contract at the
rate of $35 per month. The said Rose
burg Water & Light Co. has soi l nnd
assigned its interest nnd as far as your
committee is informed made no provi
sions to carry out said contract. We
would therefore recommend that the
City Recorder bo instructed to commu
nicate with the officers of tho said Rose-

A complaint that repairs to the side
walk in front of the Fitxhuh property,
on Court street, are needed, was re
ferred to the committee on city im
provements. The owners of the proper
ty had refused to pay any attention to a
previous request to fix the walk, con

the jurisdiction of the city. An opinion

he thought Court street belonged to the
county by virtue of the original deed of
land for a court house, and that the
county had never dedicated the subse
quently converted street to the city.

Homer Davenport, tbe noted Oregon
cartoonist, lectured at tbe Rosabon;
theater last night to a large and appre
ciative audience. Ue waa introduced
by Attorney Geo. M. Brown aa Dara
Houston's friend. Mr. Davenport in.
his lecture is a typical American, telling
his stories and incidents with remarka
ble ease and seriousness. His story of
his meeting with Admiral Dewey and
wife after the drawing of his remarka
ble cartoon, "Lest We Forget," touches
a cord of pity in the heart of tho aver
age American for the censure that noble
warrior received at tha bands of hia
people. Hia sketch ea and caricatures
drawn while on th.electure platform were
true to life. Daring his drawing, and
then only, does Mr. Davenport remove
his hands from hia pockets.
