The convention was wise, not only
In Its enunciation of party policies,

LIFE OF FAIRBANKS.
Half Million Copies Will Be Dlstribut
Indianapolis, Ind., August i. To
the campaign literature being dlstrlb
utod by tho republican national com
mltteo there will bo added this week
a volume containing the biography
and speeches of Senator Fairbanks,
the candidate for vice-president. Tho
book was prepared by W. If. Smith, a
veteran newspaper man of Indiana,
A half million copl.es of the book In
paper-bound form will be distributed
throughout the country during the
campaign Just begun.
The author says that the biography
of Senator Fairbanks was a hard ono
to write as far as variety is concern'
ed. "His boyhood," Mr, Smith said.
did not offer the incidents that the
boyhood periods of other men offer.
Ho was Just a fanner boy of very or
dinary life. At college he was Just a
good student, while his rise In politics
has been so rapid that it does not givo
much material for tho biographer."

A company Is now at work on a
plan to encircle Union county with a J
chain of electricity, generated at a
waterfall on tho Little Mlnam, 15 J
miles north of Union, nnd convoyed to
Cove and Union on n lino of poles.
The plan contemplates vile con- J
structlon of n line of electric road ng-'
gregatlng nearly 100 miles, beginning
at Union, in the south end of Ornnde .
Hondo valley, nnd from thorn to ex-
and to the Cove, eight miles distant
around iht foothills, from tho Cove
12 miles to lniblor, then four miles
to Suniiii.-rvllk, thenco "2 tulles to
l.n Orande. then 12 miles to Union,
with n cross lino direct from Covo
to La Orande, tho county Hent, n dis
tance of II miles.
The waterfall at which the monster
plant would be located will furnish nn
unlimited amount of power. It Is
high up on the Mlnam, wheru tho
strenm of water does not diminish
during the dry months, and whero tho
Installation of u power plant would
be very Inexpensive.
Thu towns mid hamlets of Union
county all lie ill such a contiguous
territory that a chain of cloctrlu
road could encircle the foothills and
touch every placo of Importance In
All that now lies In the way of tho
consummation of the plan Is tn.o fran
