A WORK OF ART. V
One of our most prominent citizens, and himself
a judge of Art, earnestly - protested about calling his
wife's attention to these, as he was certain she would
want several, and perhaps he objected to the expense
of framing. A few of . these pictures now on exhibi
tion. See window.

went through all the prominent battles

after the war closed. The diary closes
with the mention of that fact. It forms
a valuable history of the war, recording
the death of different generals, the as
sassination of Lincoln and how it was
received, and a great deal of the' move
ments of the Confederate generals.
A Statement Challenged.
Mobo, March 28, 1894. .
In your issue of the 21st inst. I notice
the following : "The populists are said
to have a majority in Sherman county
over both the old parties combined.
What benighted land is this?" The last
sentence would be very appropriate if
the first one had any foundation in" fact,
but that is in keeping with the most
of the statements of the so-called popu
lists it only lacks the elements of
truth'. The fact is, there are a few of
the party in this county, and, as.in all
other places, they are sitting around on
tneir haunches and howling like cayotes
around the farmer's chicken house. The
people of Sherman county are suffering
from the prevailing business depression,
but have too much intelligence to think
any relief can be had by adopting the
crazy political schemes of the party call
ing themselves populists. We think
the old name of "Calamity, Howlers" is
more appropriate. If your informant
had been at any'of the republican meet
ings in this county in the last few weeks
he would have seen that . there were a
few at least of that political faith still
on deck. The republicans have at this
time five precinct clubs in good working
order and they are gaining ground every
day, while the populists have been
growing smaller ever 6ince they held
their county convention in this place,
and will continue to do so until next
June, when they will disappear entirely
from the county. . Subscriber.

The Fearful Condition of the Railroads
All trains are tied np on the Burke
branch in Idaho on account of the
snowslides. There are Bir slides

The Unity club of The Dalles, was
fully organized last evening at Keller's

and by-laws, passwords, etc. Their
object is to preyent frauds and manipu
lations at elections, and no one who is
known as a .political manipulator or
boss, or who is under the -influence of
one is eligible to membership. The club
begins work with a goodly list of honeBt
voters, composed of democrats, republi
cans, populists and prohibitionists.
They propose to establish some very
much-needed " reforms - in our local
politics. L. S. Davis,
