Today will b put in by the candi
dates and their friends making the
final appeal to the wavering voters.
Tomorrow the ballots will be deposit
ed, and the day after tt will all be his
tory. On the whole, it has been
quiet campaign, and, with the excep
tion of a single incident, has been con
ducted on very courteous lines. Some
how or other, it occurred to most peo
ple that the world would go on just
the same no matter who received the
bulk of the votes; that the old Colum
bia would continue on Its way to the
sea; that the flag would still be there,
no matter who emerged from the po
litical whirlpool with the garland of
victory around , him- s So, on the eve
of the struggle there was no great anx
iety regarding the future no fear that
perhaps the republic was about to be
ruined, or the sons of men reduced to
, And still there has been some tall
hustling. Among the candidates are
several close campaigners, and friends
of other candidates are quite as en
thusiastic. It has been apparent all
along that an election was shortly to
be held, but the campaign as not been
characterized by the strenubsity which
generally is manifest in times that try
men's souls.'. I ? U. ? i
' I Political rallies do not arouse the
enthusiasm they used to in the olden
days. Occasionally, when some proml-
' nent man Is booked to address the
voters, some man whom the people
- have seldom heard or whose reputation
is national, the crowds will flock to the
meeting place, more out of curiosity
than actual interest in the subject mat
ter. Especially on a pleasant evening
in a community where pleasant even
ings are none too numerous in the
month of June it is difficult to get out
the crowd, and for the reasons here
stated Fisher's was not overcrowded
last evening, notwithstanding that the
best-beloved of all Astorians was to
be the orator of the night. When State
Senator Tuttle called the gathering to
order there "were not more than 70
people in the house, but the hall soon

$50 or J00. before .t?nJJed States Senator

A Talk in General.
Senator Fulton commenced by say
ing he hesitated to accept the invita
tion of the republican committee to de
liver the address because of the fact
that Astorians, generally, without re
gard' to political affiliations, had been
so warm toward him. He appreciated
this whole-souled sentiment, and there
fore disliked to "do" politics here at
jiome. What he would say about the
democracy should not, he explained, be
:aken to mean that he was scoring in
The senator went back to the time
of the war the only time the demo
crats neglected to gather . 'round the
fliig, he said. On ell other occasions
the democrats were patriotic enough.
But they were advocating wrongful
principles. They had chased the free
silver phantom for a brief period, then
deserted the white metal. On the other
hand, the senator continued, the repub
llcans had never undertaken a policy
that was not lasting in character and
effect They had successfully upheld
this government of ours and brought
prosperity to the people.
Senator Fulton could not agree that
there was no national significance in
this election. He insisted that Oregon
was to fire the opening gun In the na
tion, and that the extent to which it
would announce republican" victory
strengthen the party. . For this reason
the senator wanted to see all of the
republican candidates elected by hand
some majorities. -
: The Dtmocratio Rally,
While Senator Fulton was tearing
holes In the democratic drop curtain,
the democrats were blissfully whlling
away the hours down in the west end.
The west end is the stronghold of the
adherents of Thomas Jefferson and An
drew Jackson, so the unterrlfled went
down' en force and held a rally that
wound up with a social function. The
social features of the affair attracted
the crowd and the candidates explain
ed why they ought to be elected. Im
mediately after the oratorical effort
the hall was cleared, and then the las
sies and laddies danced and danced,
