Oregon ' City, March' 24. Saturday
afternoon the Prohibitionists will gather
In convention in. the, local T. M. C A.

ticket. The "Prohibs" are not very
strong1 in. this county, but they are add

have a ticket in the Held. ' ':
In the evening Kayner ; W. ., Keleejr

Impersonator, will do funny stunts for

Pioneer Votes. -
..' ' Judge William Galloway, president of
., the Oregon Pioneer association, says that
. . the next assembly of pioneers In Port
land this June Will be the most largely
attended of any ever held. There Js
some question about the date of the
meeting, and it may be held on June 23,
Instead , of June 15, as has been , the
case before. The reason for this change
Is that . the officers of the association
, wish to" make it possible for the stu-
dents of the different schools to attend,
and if it is held on the 16th It usually
' happens ' that the schools are holding
their final examinations or the ' com
mencement exercises, O. H. Himes, the
; secretary Of the association, is corre
sponding with the Native Sons , and
Daughters . organisations of the state,
and he is in hopes that a large number
of them will attend , the assembly.
Democratic Polices.
The situation among the Democrats
with reference to prospective candidates
- for the different offices in the coming
election in June is so quiet as to cause
belief they have ; something extraordi
narily good to give out when the nomina
tions are in order. O. t. Eby, the presi
dent of the local Democratic club, when
asked about candidates,' said: -
"We don't know much about candi
dates yet, but we think there will bea
'few surprises for some of the people.
V About the only man who has spoken
- to me about the matter is N. F. Kelson
; of Logan, who says, he -is a candidate
f for treasurer. He has lived in Logan
. for about ,16 years, and is a, good Dem-
ocrat and would make a good officer if
elected." . -; ;,'"
i The Democrats are perfecting an or-
ganisatlon throughout the" county, ani
while they are working quietly, evi
dences of their labor is .apparent ' Not
long ago the membership of the Thomas
J Jefferson Democratic club numbered bijt
150, now there are 400 names on the
i roster, and President Eby says that by
? April 9, the day of the Democratic con-
i ventlon, there will be in the neighbor-

O Setting Poles for Una.

Farmers' Telephone line, is in Oregon
City . on business connected ' Ith : the
line. - He is making preparations to get
the poles for the line and says that he
will have it in Oregon City by next fall.
He tried cutting the poles ,but thought
that the quickest way would be to saw
them out in the mill, so he is putting
in a mill near the Fisher" grist mill on
Clear creek. The distance that will
have to be lined is from a point in Red
land to' - Oregon City. The franchise
for this has been granted by the county
and the city has, already granted him
the right to bring his fine in the city
limits and haa permitted htm a location
on Main street , Mr. Boney is confident
of, the success of his line and haa this
to say about it: "The benefit to the peo
ple of Oregon City that our line will
bring is only half realised. The line Is
really more benefit to the business men
of Oregon Citr-than It is' to us. Our
