The man went limping Into the offlc and to Store Keeper Badollet relate that hla Angers had been badly hurt. Mr Badollet eyed the tn&n'a hands, but could aee nothing wrong- with them, ao, holding' up the hands of the man for inspection, the, etore keeper told him he waa mistaken. The man became somewhat excited to explain that he meant "hla other lingers," pointing to hia feeU Mr. Badollet eeht hlnj to Mn Hume, who occassional ly, in emergency cases, attends to injured men, and the following day the man called In at the office to tell Mr. Badollet hla fingers were getting along pretty well, Jut that hla thumb waa still quite abre. PolUIca has again become an Inter- eating topic in Oregon, especially in view of the uir approach of the coun ty election. Multnomah 1 as usual, th hotbed of all that la said and done, and the outaotne of the primaries there will practically decide the question of aupremacy. Ia Clatsop little Interest la being ahown In the situation lo cally, for the reason that both parties are quite well satisfied to keep a United States senator at Washington. Indeed, a prominent member of the cltlaen or ganlsatton expresses the opinion that republican , legislative candidates will be decided upon -.by the two county committees, with the understanding that they ahall pursue a certain course o far as locat matters are concerned, and take such action In the matter of the election of a senator aa will best subserve the Interests of Senator Ful ton.- ' ;'.iis v. ! Senator Mitchell's present term ex pires In 1907, and the legislature which meets In the early spring of that year will choose hla successor. If Mr. Mitchell's health la good, and there la no reason at present to Indicate that It will be otherwise, he will doubtless be re-elected. While the election la three years oft, the coming county elec tions will have material bearing on the 1907 altuation, not only because state senators will be chosen for four years, and will, therefore, have a voice In the selection of Senator Mitchell's succes sor, but also because the elections will denote the direction of the political breeae.j 4 Senator Simon announces emphatic ally that h la out of the race 4 hot he baa no further ionglng to represent Oregon In the upper branch of cong rasa. ' He aerved one term at Wash Ington, and the experience waa not pleasant one. "Under no circumstanc es," aaya the former aenator, "will be a candidate for Senator Mitchell's place, nor do I anticipate that I ever again will seek the honor at the hands of my party here In Oregon. I am out of the senatorial contest for all time." ' ,-. . ; . r '. The question of national politics en tors largely Into local altuallone this year, for the well known reason that there are some republicans who da not favor the nomination of President Roosevelt. , Senator Simon's past ut terances have only too plainly denoted that he doea not bear for the presi dent the friendliest feeling, and there la a lurking suspicion he may carry the primaries and aend a delegation to Chicago which will oppose Mr. Roose velt's aspirations. Many other repub licans who admire the president have greater admiration for Senator Han Da, whose name. It Is believed generally Will certainly be sprung at the convent Ion. The Simon followera have been strong in the past and might, with the aid of the Hanna republicans, control the primaries and dictate the personnel of the national delegation. For this reason the republican city and county central committee of Multnomah -recently urged, in an addresa to the pub lic, the re-election of Senator Mitchell, evidently being of the belief that the Interests of Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Mitchell are Identical . The committee holds that the return to power of Mr. Simon will be a direct blow at the administration. As to this Mr. Simon has little to say, except to reiterate the atatement recently made by him that he la not making any fight on the president. He saps he Is being misrepresented and refers t othe committee's addresa as a lot of absurdities. That the former senator Is preparing for war, however, Is evident from the vigorous manner In which he attacks the admlnlsta- tlon of the Mitchell offlciala of the county, and It seems quite probable the primaries will be bard fought as waa the case two years ago, "Behind it ,all Ilea the political for tunes of another man," aald an As ian yesterday, .;, The " gentleman In question keeps close tag on Oregon po'l Itics. "Tnti dark jhorae Is being groomed as Senator Mitchell's oppon ent, and It ia whispered be will have the aupport of tbaOregonlan,' which seems anxious at all times to lend aid and encouragement to the enemy by parading hla claims before the public.

Arm strong then turned the revolver toward himself and fired one shot, the bullet faxing hla forehead and stunning him slightly. Mlsa Ensmlnger died the fol lowing morning. Armstrong ,waa con vlcted of murder and sentenced to bo hanged under a law the nln existence which provided that hanginga should be conducted by the sheriff of the county where the crime had been committed, nue unuer tbia aentence a stay of execution was granted by the state supreme court, pending a hearing of the case oa appeal. Btfore the case was determined a new law went Into effect4 provided that all hanginga should take place at the penitentiary and be con ducted by the warden. ' ' At the recent special session of the legislature a law was passed amend atory to the hew law which had failed provide for the hanging pi- con demr.ed murderera sentenced under the old taw but not executed prior to the time that It passed out of existence Armstrong's attorneys contended that the court, having sentenced the murd erer to be hanged by an official who had thereafter v lost hla authority, It could 'not review lta own decision and pass a new sentence; also that the set of the legislature amending the new law waa ex post facto and unconsti tutional, and that there waa no on vested with authority to execute the condemned man. Thla . point waa thrashed out In all the state court, the decision Jn, every Instance being. ad verse to Armstrong. Application , was then made to the United States dis trict court for relief on -the same grounds. ' The federal court ruled that a law to be ex post facto must affect the degree of punishment and that a failure to provide a means for carry Ing out the sentence did not alter the nature of the old law nor affect the right of the condemned man one way nor the other,, On Wednesday, the state supreme court denied a motion for Yesterday, the supreme court render ed the opinion that the death warrant waa valid and the law waa allowed to take Its course '' : . i -i j tt a n tt tt tt tt n tt tt tt tt tt tt tt tt it tt tt tt tt tt tt tt - tt. tt o tt ttttttaaittttttttttttt tt tt tt tt tt tt tt tt n tt tttt u "f " ' tt THE COLD BLAST . i IS COMING Our coldest weather Is due during January and February. , , ' We don't deal in weather but do sell HEATING STOVES . .' .. t . ik.
