Eugene, April 22 Leo M. Travis,
stated that his reasons for not con
senting to become a candidate for. the
office of district attorney are as fol-
"I have three special reasons for
declining the nomination," said Mr.
Travis. "My first reason is purely
financial. The income from my prac
tice far exceeds that of the district
attorneys salary after he has paid his
deputies. My books will prove this
and for this reason I have no desire
to sacrifice a good practico for public
office, especially that of district at-
"My second reason is that I prefer
civil practice to criminal. I fear that
I could not sleep well if I were com
pelled to travel throughout the dis
trict, sweating my life away endeavor
ing to send men to the penitentiary
or to the gallows.
"My third reason is that if I were
elected to the office of district attor
ney it would disrupt my home life.
You are aware that I have only re
cently been married and at this time
do not care to be absent from home
as frequently as my duties would re

BRYAN SPEAKS AT CHICAGO.
A dispatch from London on Satur-
lay gives various rumors of the at
tempted or impending landing of Jap
anese on or near Liaotung peninsula.
According to the St. Petersburg cor
respondent of the Paris Tempts the
effort to land these will be made
imultaneously with the attempt to
cross the lalu river.
The Wei-hai-wei correspondent of
the Fxpress says that scores of trans
ports have been passing between
Japan and the Bay of Corea during
the last few ,days. Each transport
fleet was accompanied by a steamer
equipped with wireless telegraph in
struments, thereby keeping in con
stant touch with Admiral Togo. The
correspondent says startling events,
equal in importance to those of last
week, are expected shortly.
Chinese ships bring news that Ad
miral Togo has retired to Blonde
Islands, which he has been using as
his base. The whole Japanese fleet is
regularly supplied with coal at sea by
vessels from Nagasaki and Moji,
which also bring ammunition and
other supplies. No attempt at con
cealment is made, the Japanese feel
mg assured that tney are immune
from attack. Admiral Togo and his
officers have been for more than two
months aboard their ships. One of
the most indefatigable of his officers
is Prince Yorishito of the imperial
house, who is second in command of
the cruiser Chitose, which has done
splendid work in the various engage

ere & Co,
E. H. S. Defeats R. H. S. in Second
Salem, Or., April 23 State Treasurer Moore an
nounced today that the portage railway at Celilo will
be again considered so soon as the right of way for the
caual has ben secured for the government. He also
said that the state appropriation of $165,000 will not
be sufficient to build and equip the road under the sur
vey that will be established.
The reason for this is explained by saying that
shortly after the legislature passed the bill appropria
ting that sum, the commission caused the survey to
be made and estimates were submitted. By encroach
ing on the O. R. &N. right of way several places were
found possible to get a good bed .that did not lequire
expeusive cuts and 611s.
Estimates received for the road completed and
equipped was within the appropriation and everything
looked favorable for an early construction. Last win
ter the legislature authorized the expenditure of $100,
000 to secure a right of way for the government canal
under the provisions of the law passed in congress,
whereby the United States agreed to build the canal
aud open the river for navigation if Oregon furnished
the right of way at Celilo,
The board of commissioners Chamberlain, Dun
bar and Moore visited the place again and secured
the canal rights from property owners along the line
except from I. H. Taafe 'of Celilo, who own3 a fish
wheel and packing house, near the terminus of the
Taafe has refused to come to the commission's
terms, and has been told that they expect his answer
by May 1, or they will proced against him. Taafe
wants $40,000 for a right of way through less than a
quarter of a mile of worthless land. He claims his
fishing right will be damaged to that extent.
The government offered to construct a bridge
across the canal, and proposed to lay water supply
pipes under the canal at its own expense, but Taafe
won't recede from his position.
The commission found that the right of way for
the canal follows the survey of the portage road, mak
ing in necessary for the state to build the portage
road nearer the liver, entailing an expenditure
of a larger sum than appropriated.
The length of the proposed canal and portage
road is eight and three quarters miles. The govern
ment made a running appropriation of $4,125,000 for
the caual. 'The contract let is for $118,000 for clear
ing the three miles of rapids. This work will begin
so soon as theNriver falls. The majority of the people
in Eastern Oregon want the canal, and also the port
age road. The commissioners will get the case intel
ligently before the legislature at the next session.
BRYAN AND THE YELLOW KID.
Chicago, April 23. Hearty, ringing cheers again
interrupted William Jennings Bryan in his speech
this evening at the Second Regiment armory. Not
withstanding the fact that a heavy rain began to pour
shortly after Mr. Bryan opened his speech, the crowd
outside remained at the doors, willing to suffer the
inconvneience of wet clothing in order that they
might listen to the words of eloquence as thev fell
from the lips ot the gifted speaker.
At one time early in the address some one out
side the building cried "Hurrah for Bryan!" and those
within were quick to take up the cry. The speaker
smiled and bowed'
The scornful and dsrisive manner in which Mr.
Bryan alluded to Cleveland, Hill, Parker and August
Belmont found quick responses from the audience.
, Amid cheers of approval Mr. Bryan said;
"The New York platform is dishonest and is fit
ouly for a dishonest party.
"No one but an artful dodger will stand upon it.
It is an insult to intelligence a reflection upon the
brains of the Democratic party. I had expected that
a ulatform constructed by Hill for Parker to stand on
1 1 did not exnect that it would
.nuiuu isw w . j - 1
be what it proved to be."
Ecqk-vh, April 22. The scond an
nual debate between the Roseburg and
Eugeno High 8chools was held in the
assembly hall last evening. The ques
tion debated was: "Resolved, That it
would be for the best interests of civili
zation for Japan to iieeome the control
ling power in Eastern Asia." The Rose
burg team, consisting of Messrs. Strong,
Towneend and Moore, supported the af
firmative and the E. II. 8. team, Messrs.
Wateon, Kestly and Miss Edna Houston,
The judges, President, P. L. Camp
bell, Prof. F. G. Young and Dr. J. W.
Harris, after a few minutes consultation,
rendered a unanimous decision in favor
of the negative.
Miss Clara Harding favored the au-
dience with a piano ho!o during the
evening and Mies Faith Lister a vocal
solo. After the debate a reception was
tendered the visitors in the reception
room, decorated for the purpose. Not
withstanding the fact that a large audi
ence was composed chiefly of Eugene
people, their applause and the veils of
the high school roosters' clnb was
scarcely less vociferous for the visitors
than for the home team.
The Glendale Green Goods Case.
The Portland Telegram of Monday
says: "b. b. baton decided this morning
to reverse bis plea of not guilty of the
charges filed against him in the United
States District Court by the last grand
jury, and this morning through ' his at
torney plead guilty to the first count
of the true bill. In view of this District
Attorney Hall agreed to waive the It
two counts. Eaton was charged with
using the United States mails as a
medium Co carry advertising matter for
the sale of spurious money.
Now the next question comes up as to
where Eaton shall be punished for his
crime. The statute dealing with it
&aya he eball be sentenced to not more
than 18 months in the penitentiary.
The clause .n regard to hard labor ia not
in the statute. This brings the court
face to face with the problem which lias
been vexing it for some years. The
rules of the Oregon penitentiary provide
that ail prisoners must work. The
United States penitentiary at McNeil's
Island, in Pngent Sound, is full. Be
cause there is no clause in the statute
in regard to hard labor Eaton could take
the stand that he did not have to work
if he was sent to the Oregon penitentiary.
Judge Bellinger took the matter under
advbement this morning, and wilt
render his decision tomorrow morning.
I The trial of Eaton was s?t for next
Thursday. The crime, of "which he has
acknowledged guilt, was committed at

Osteopathy, What Do They Do to You?
Ridiculous tales are sometimes told by
prejudiced persons of exposure of the
body, violence in treatment, danger to
the patient, indecency, etc., which are
entirely wiUiout foundation.
There is no indelicacy about examina
tion or treatment. hat is done in no
way exceeds propriety, any more than
do the actions of a physician in making
a thorough examination.
A patient desires a thorough examina
tion. In making this it is frequently
necessary to make it directly upon parts
of the body, but this ia done without ex
posure of the person.
The treatment is generally given to
the part protected by a light garment.
Necessity may sometimes require it to
bo given directly upon the part, but in
delicacy may always be avoided.
This treatment is not "rubbing,"
kneeding, tapping or shaking. It is
proper Osteopathic manipulation for the
relaxation of tissues, the adjustment of
parts, the stimulation ot nerves and
nerve-centers, and the liberation of
blood-currents. It commonlv requires
hut a short time, and is not rude nor
painful. Tho frequency of the treat
ment depends ujon the needs of the in
dividual case. It is determined bv the
careful judgment of the practioner, just
ns a doctor of medicine regulates his
dosage by the needs of the patient.
