The appointment of Charles W. Parks
as jK6tmaBtcr at Roseburg to succeed

Mr. Parks was married to Miss Nellie
Perry, of this city, a bright little daugh

for the success of the party. His many
friends, therefore, bv tecuriug Ida ap

only substantial recognition for faithful
services rendered, and honors worthily
and fittingly bestowed.
Mr. Park is a quiet, unassuming gen
tleuian, a thoroughly practical business
man, upright, honest, and eminently
well qualified for the position to which
he has been appointed by President
Roosevelt. He also enjoys the esteem
and confidence of the entire community,
ami las apiiointment is conceded u
judicious and satisfactory. Simon Caro,
an old and faithful republican war horse,
was alto a candidate for the appoint
ment, hut takes his failure to secure
the coveted plum very philosophically.
