A valuable milch cow belonging to
Mrs. T. J. Gallaher met death Mon
day in a manner unrecorded, per
haps, of any other cow on this hemis
phere. Ray Gallaher had just bought
a league ball at Proebstel's, and by
practicing at home was perfecting
himself in the national game. He
"muffed" a "fly" thrown into the air,
and as the ball rolled along the
ground it was suddenly seized by the
C6W under the mistaken impression
that it was some delicate morsel par
ticularly suited to her gastronomy.
Ray had paid $1.26 for the ball, and
strongly objected to the cow's unwar
ranted interference with the gamo on
account of her ignorance of national
league rules against chewing the ball,
as well as "chewing the rag"' with
the umpire. He promptly gave chase
ad tried to get the sphere out of her
mouth, L'Ut she hung on like a poli
tician to a Sinecure, soon sne nau
it half swallowed, " after a period
of desperate choking She departed to
that mysterious pasture" from which

men who are aspirants for the differ
ent positions, the nominations to
which will be made at the republican
county convention to bo held at the
court house in Pendleton on Wednes
day, March 12, and at the democratic
convention to bo held later. It;would
however, require the gift of clalr
voyancy developed to a remarkable
degree to fortell the names of those
who will be nominated. In fact, It is
impossible, owing to the numerous
combinations which will undoubtedly
be made as the campaign progresses.
The preliminary political battle is
being waged today between the
friends of Judge Stephen A. Lowell
and W. J. Furnish. Upon the out
come thereof hangs the hopes of the
condidates for county positions.
Again, the result of the republican
county convention will have an im
portant bearing upon the nominations
which will be made by the democratic
county convention.
The Senatorial Office.
First in importance, perhaps, par
ticularly from a political standpoint,
after the favorite son for governor,
has been decided upon, is that of
state senator. Umatilla is entitled to
one state senator, and, in connection
witli Union county, a joint senator.
On the republican side a number of
candidates are in the field, the more
prominent being the following: Dr.
F. W. Vinent, Judge J. J. Balleray and
Hon. T. C. Taylor, of Pendleton; Hon.
G. W. Proobstel, of Weston. It has
been rumored for the past ten days
that-the Furnish faction was willing
to allow Mr. Taylor to have this nom
ination. The Lowell crowd are
not willing to admit, for the
fractional part of a second,
that Mr. Taylor' nomination depends
upon the willingness or unwillingness
of the Furnish contingent. Mr. Tay
lor has been a lifelong republican and
gained the honorable distinction of
being the president of the senate at
the last session of the legislature
of which he was a member. He has
recently expressed himself as being
anxious to have a strong ticket nom
inated, regardless of hi$ personal as
pirations. It is a possibility that Mr.
Taylor might be the nominee for
joint senator, in case the struggle In
Union county should result in a dead
locit'benTC"" tlie branclies of the par
rv there "controlled by J. M' ChurCl'i
and .1. M. Scriber,
That wouiu giYt
. 1 i 1
Mr. Proebstel pretty fair sailing, pro
viding the Lowell men control the
republican county convention. The
nomination of a joint senator is con
ceded to Union county if it unites up
on either Church or Scriber with a
reasonable degree of unaninilty. It
is quite a natural inference that Dr.
F. W. Vincent will receive the nom
ination if the Furnish star should lie
on the ascendant, this prediction be
ing based upon his management of
Pendleton municipal affairs, hut
more particularly in his ability shown
in conducting the campaign of poll'
tics as chairman of the central com
mittee. a position giving him full
scope for his executive ability, which
is acknowledged by all to he of a
high order. Judge Balleray has many
friends who would be pleased to as
slst him to obtain anything within
reason. He has fought many a good
fight for his party and has seldom
asked anything for himself.
Dr. Smith for Senator.
On the democratic side but one
name, that of C. J. Smitji, of Pendle
ton, has been mentioned with any
particular assurance as a candidate
for state senator.
Umatilla county is entitled to two
members of the .lower house. Three
prominent republican candidates are
T. J. Kirk, who is a representative at
present; L. M. Watrus, of Adams;
Claud Steen, of Milton, with several
other precincts to hear from. The
name of Sheriff William Blakley has
been montloned aB a democratic nom
inee. He refused to give the sub
ject much consideration when asked
about, it not being personally anxious
lor the position. As Mr. Blakley lias
jiover refused to respond and assist
in the battles of his party 1J. is rea
sonable to suppose that ho will not
refuso the nomination If tendered him
by a unanimous convention. Ho has
been honored by his party In the past,
and, if nominated, will cause a hustle
on the part of his republican oppon
ents to keep him from winning.
Candidates for Sheriff.
The candidates for the shrievalty
nomination on tho republican ticket
are M. J. Carney, of Pendleton; C. A.
Barrett, of Athena; F. M. Kimberk, of
Adams; F. S. Curl, of Pendleton. Mr.
Carney was Georgo E. Porringer's
closest competitor for tho nomination
two years ago, and .acted gracefully
after having been defeated. It Is
quite probable that he will bo selected
for the position this year. On the
democratic side there are but two as
pirants, Til D, Taylor, who has been
Sheriff Blakloy's efficient deputy for
the pnBt four years; and John M.
Heathman, until recently Pendloton's
mnrshnl. The con 'tuition will decide
between the aitils or the two men
The Clerkship Post.
For clerk It niny be statcll with' a
reasonable degree of certainty that
William D .Chamberlain, of Athonn,
will bo selected as the democratic
nominee. As an opponent, Mr.
Cliamheiialn will probably havo
Frank O. Rogers, also of Athena, al
though George A. Cowl, of Milton,
ma yget the nomination. Both Air.
Cowl and Mr. Rogers seem to be
somewhat undecided as to whethor
to try for the clerkship or recorder
Bhip nomination.
Charles H. Marsh, chief deputy In
the recorder's office under Recorder
James W. Moloney, and in charge
since July 1, when Mr. Maloney ac
cepted a position in tho Pendleton
Savings bank, has tho inside track
for the democratic nomination.
The two most prominent republican
candidates for recorder are H. A.
Faxon, who was chief clerk In the
sheriff's offce for four "years under
Sheriff Houser; nnd W. H. Folsom, of
Pilot Rock. It is said also that John
E. Bean has fixed his covetous eye
upon tho position. Mr. Bean is stock
inspector at present.
The Trcasuryshlp.
S. K. YaFes, of Milton, who holds
the office at present; and B. F. Renn
and Dr. E. J. Summorvillo, of Pendle
ton, are after tho republican nomi
nation for treasurer.
No name has ben mentioned out
loud for the democratic nomination
for treasurer or ommlsslonor. How
ever, in connection with tho office of
treasurer, W. D. Hansford's name has
been suggested, and he would make a
good run, being in every way
fitted for the trust. Jerry
Durham, of Pilot Rock, wants the re
publican nomination for commission
er to succeed T. P. Gilliland, of
Ukiah. Mr. Gilliland states that he
has" served two terms of four years
each in that responsible and onerous
position, and, if consulting . his own
personal Inclinations, would decide
to take a rest. His friends here
have been insisting that he again
make the race, and if the nomination
should be tendered to him it would
be a plain case of the office seeking
the man.
George Buzan Is a candidate to suc
ceed himself as assessor, and as op
ponent for the republican nomination
will have Alex Hudson, of McKay,
and Charles A. Frazier of Pendleon.
'John Wf. Kimbrell will be before the
republican convention as an opponent
of Charles E. McComber, who has
been serving In that capacity for the
past two years. Mr. Kimbrell held
the position -for a number of terms,
but refused to allow his name to go
before the last convention, thus giv
ing Mr. McComber a clear field.
Slow in Coming Forward.
Democratic candidates for treasur-
r, surveyor and coroner are bIow in
coming to the front. Georgo a.
Hartman, Sr., county judge, when in
terviewed as to -who would bo the
democratic nominee, said: "That
matter will be decided by the conven
tion in truly democratic style. Since
Furnish went over to the republican
narty it is impossible to tell In ad
vance who are going to be nommau
ed, as the convention is run without
It is quite likely that Dr. W. G.
Colo will again bo chosen as coroner
on the republican ticket, to which po
sltion he was elected two years ago
