In speaking of the outlook for a
sale of the O P. the Albany Her
ald has this to say:
'It is learned that Gol. Hogg is
not in Sail Francisco, as has been
reported, but is in Scotland, where
he has been negotiating for the
money for the purchase of the road,
in which undertaking he has been
successful in obtainiug tl'e million
and a quarter. If his plans are
successful, he will pay in cash to
the Keilitors the 36 per cent. and
use Remainder in extending the
road i Finally "li KiIast as possible,
n'ltld 1 CO'll t Si. .... ,, .,
n-iiijri iMr suited that all the
actual construction that has ever
been done on the Oregon Pacific
was done by the Hogg management,
and should he secure control of the
road again, there is good reason to
believe that he would carry out his
original plan mid extend the road
into Eastern Oregon and to an
Eastern connection. With such an
outlook the people who are inter
ested in the success of tl'e road will
wish to see him succeed, and wili

The much-discussed "preferen
tial voting system was used in the
populist convention t,He oilier" day.
In tlif whole county there were
ninety votes cast at the primaries.
Out of these ninety the candidates
for clerk, sheriff; surveyor; itsse'ssor;
cordnbr, and one commissioner re
ceived a majority vote and their
several nominations wrjrp, ryttfted
by the convention, except in the
cSsfe bf sdrveyor. For this office
A. L. Porter received a majority
vote and was declared the nominee,
but Mr. Porter, who happened td
be present, arose mid ftifo'tine'd the'
coitvt'iitioii that he had given no
