William Holder, sheriff of Sherman
county, and William Hendricks, clerk of
the same county, were in Portland yes
terday. Both are Republicans, and,
while admitting that the vote of Sher
man county will be close next month,
they look for a small plurality for Me
Kinley. Encouraging reports continue to come
from the country precincts for the cause
of Republicanism, and the prospect of
McKinley's success in Marion Co. grows
brighter as election day approaches. In
addition to the six dozen uniforms and
torches of the Salem Flambeau Club,
600 more torches have been ordered.
Mrs. Sbane's Work for the Kefore
Home at Portland.
The Baptist Convention.
Mrs. Shane left last evening for Pen
dleton, La Grande, Baker City and
other Eastern Oregon points in the in
terest of ' the Florence Crittenton Mis
sion Home in Portland. She has been
in the city three days, having received
several contributions here. Mrs. Shane
has taken the most active interest in
this cause of any lady in Portland.
For years there has been a home of
this eort in the city of Portland, having
been nominally called the "Refuge
Home" for unfortunate girls. Most of
these have come from the country, and
in the home there have been several
mothers of only 14 years of age. The
number of pronouncedly fallen women
seeking their home have been compara
tively few. When Mr. Crittenton went
to Portland, where he held a series of
meetings, be endowed $1,500 upon it,
later giving it $500 more, and raising an
additional $500 from sympathizers, in
the cause, and the name was changed
to the Florence Crittenton home.
Lately there has - been some trouble
caused on the part of a Mr. Bancroft, by
citing to a certain clause in an act by
the legislature in reference to the .home
The legislature provided an annual bum
for the benefit ot the home, and Mrs. W
j S. Ladd of Portland gave an acre of
ground in the suburbs, upon which a
permanent building was to be erected.
The yearly -state allowance seems to be
contingent upon the home being built
upon Mrs. Ladd's gift of land. The
temporary structure existing on pre mi
ses adjacent to Mr. Bancroft's home, to
the annoyance of himself and family, be
cited the clause in the legislative act to"
harass the home - by withdrawing the
provision made by the state. The diffi
culty consisted in the unavailability of
using the land for the purpose intended.
It was covered with' a dense growth of
trees, was distant from the city lights
and streets, and had no means of in
grees or egress. Mrs.' Shane is now try
ing to secure funds to clear the land,
make a road to it, and erect a temporary
building, so that the annual sum do
nated by the state may be secured.

upon him by the convention, followed
by the vice-president and secretary.
The pastor ot the Calvary Baptist
church of The Dalles then spoke a very
few words of welcome to the convention,
after which the president called upon
the general missionary to respond. He
did so in a few appropriate words.
The committee on devotion was ap

Law eon from the text "I beseech you
therefore, my brethren, that ye walk
worthy of the vocation wherewith ye

Mitchell at Dufur.
The speech of Senator Mitchell- last
evening constituted the biggest event in
Dufur of the campaign. Citizens from
all over the county assembled in the
public hall there to the number of 500.
Ten were present from The Dalles. We
are told that upon this occasion Senator
Mitchell was at his best. At times he
was interrupted by questions. Some of
them were evidently stated to disconcert
him, but his replies were so ready, so
forcible, and so entirely satisfactory to
the audience, that these tactica were
soon abandoned. There was a manifest
intention early in the speech on the
part of the Bryan forces to turn it into a
Bryan meeting, but unfortunately for
them, the effort was reactionary and the
meeting proved to be the most enthusi
astic Republican event of the. campaign.
At times the cheering was tremendous,
and as point after point was scored by
our brainy senator, the enthusiasm grew
until it - reached the boiling point.
When the senator asked for an expres
sion of the minds of the audience, a
conservative estimate places the num
ber who rose for MeKinley as from two
thirds to three-fourths of the whole
number. - "
