Mr. T. M. Hunter of Wapinitia called

Death of Daniel Far-ring ton.
News was received in town last even
ing of the death of Mr. Daniel Farring
ton, which occurred at bis farm, about
ten miles from town, yesterday at 6 p.
m. Mr. Farrington had not ' been in
good health for some time, but his death
was not considered imminent by mem
bers of the family. Yesterday motning
he did not arise and complained of not
feeling as well as usual. Dr. Eshelman
was sent for and did what he could, to
alleviate his sufferings. , Towards even
ing he did not appear to be worse, and
a few minutes before -his death he sat
op in bed and partook of medicine.
Mr. Farrington was a well-known citi
zea of Wasco county, and was respected
for bis true worth and upright life. ' He
possessed the characteristic honesty and
rugged character which mark the sons
of New England.
Mr. Farrington was born in Halden,
Maine, in 1828, and -lived in that state
until 1851, when he came to California
by way of Cape Horn. He remained
there till -1870, when be returned to
Bangor,' Maine, where he stayed till
1882. In that year he moved to Oregon
and settled on the land which was bis
home during the remaining years.
He was a consistent Christian, being
a member of the Congregational church
of this city. - He leaves a wife and four
grown sons E. S Farrington, an attor
neyof Elko, Nevada, Lincoln E., now
a student at the University of Oregon,
Herbert and Myron D., residents of this
. Mr. Farrington's death will be re
gretted by all who knew and respected
his manly worth.

Bob Burns, a popular and efficient
traveling'agent,' has. been made travel
ing passenger agent in addition to his
traveling freight agency for the O. R. &
N. . He has Wal!a( Walla as his head
quarters starting point. . -
Nearly everyone hereabouts, says the
Pendleton East Oregonian, knows R. B.
Wilson, "Bob," who was formerly with
the Northern Pacific as a" traveler, and
ately was with the Great Northern at
Spokane. Bob has a reputation among'
railroad men for . securing stock ship-,
meats for the road be may be working
for.' He knows as much about handling
cattle or sheep as the average stockman,
because he himself has had years of ex
perience on the .- range. He generally
gets the shipment after which he goes,
because he never makes promises be
cannot fulfill . and patrons . therefore
know they can rely, on him. Recently
there was a train load of -livestock to go
from The Dalles, and as shipments were
slack on all the roads, orders were issued
from all the Railroad offices to the travel
ihg agents to get that shipment. The
O. R. & N., of course, would haul It out,
but the question was which road would
haul it at the eastern end and land it in
Chicago. Exactly fourteen representa
tives of almost as many roads hurried to
The Dalles, and there was a lively scrap
for the shioment. It was a memorable
struggle inasmuch as all the raiiroad
men in the country were watching the
transaction. Bob Wilson was talking
Burlington this time. Well, the Bur
lington got the shipment. Not a sur
prising statement, because Bob Wilson
usually gets -what he goes after and he
got that shipment.
McKinley Will Carry Washington.
out with a big boom and hurrahed
everybody into line. The boom is burst
aud they are losing, adherents with the
setting of every sun. On the other hand,
McKinley is gaining daily and converts
are being made to an extent that leave
no room to doubt the result for next No
vember. It is this reactiqn that we.are
all working ' on, and which will finally
bring . to our , Btandard the 11,000 now
uncertain, voters. Good work .is being
done on all sides. Speakers and sound
money literature permeate every pre
cinct in every county throughout, the
state with the result that people are
meeting' us half-way, as is manifested by
the tremendous interest taken in all our
McKinley meetings, which early in the
campaign were - marked with decided
frosts in many localities. .
'The result of the election will depend
more on King county than on any other
county or' part 'of the state. If King
county will do its dutv, McKinley will
carry Washington, notwithstanding the
many prominent Republicans who went
back on their principles." .
Mr- Henry L. Wilson . of Spokane,
who will address Out citizens tomorrow
night, bad the following to say to an
Oregonian reporter Monday.
"There are 1,100 voting precincts in
the state (Washington . Now, after a
careful canvass of the field, I have made
up my . mind that there are, on an
average, at least ten voters in each pre.

mind which way they are going to yote,
These make up a total pf .11,000 uncer
