however, are making an open fight
at present, and the only authority
for their candidacy is Dame Rumor.
There will be candidates a plenty,
in due time, without doubt.
For the postoffice at Newport,
the candidates are not quite as
numerous as the "sands of the sea,"
but there is no shortage in their
numbers. The list that are spoken
of is composed of Mrs. Umphrey,
C. H. Williams, L. W. Williams,
R. F. Baker, A. II. Hampton, and
several others. For the Waldport
postoffice the only name we have
heard mentioned has been that of
Chas. Diven, one of the merchants
of that place. The Yaquina office
does not seem to be a very popular
one, as we have not heard a single
name mentioned as a candidate. If
any shortage exists at Yaquina
