You have ' gone - cut of your
way to call attention to the fact
that I was present at a meeting
the office of E. .R. Bry-
the Sunday preceding the
recent city election, and to imply
that the destinies of the city were
thereby endangered. In naming
those present you state that be- j
sides. E. R. Bryson, B. W. John
son and myself, "two others" were
there. Why "two olfiers?"
They were B. F. Irvine, editor of
the Times, and Robt. Johnson.
So far as I know there was noth
ing sinister about the meeting.
My presence is easily explained,
for, "like yourself, "I was called
by phone." E: P. Greffoz, act
ing in his official capacity, had
brought the tickets for the city
election to the Gazette office to
have them printed. This ticket
contained the-names of all per-,
sons who were seeking office in
the city election. It was' the
only ticket in the field May 18th,
and the names of your candidates
were upon. it. I was called by
phone and asked to bring one of
these printed tickets to Mr. Bry
son's office. I did so. So there's
your : insinuation '.'stripped to
I enjoyed the meeting, how
ever. . I thought your explana
tion of how you "had acted as
wet nurse for the saloons of this
city for years," was in your best
vein; and the indignation you
displayed when you spoke of the
ingratitude ot the proprietors of
these places, was splendid.

to study farming methods at that
point. A run. to the Corvallis
Agricultural College will be
taken, and from 9 a. m. to 1 p.
m. the party will be shown
through the station.
Railroad men regard the visit
of the party as one of the most
important expeditions that has
ever come to Oregon. The
showing made of this state's re
sources will be as complete as the
time will permit, and it is ex
pected .wben the party returns to
Germany it will carry a good
impression of this state.
While there has neve been
any authorized statement to this
effect, it is generally believed the
tour has the sanction of the Ger
man government and that a re
port on American farming meth
ods will be made to German offi
cials. - In this report it is believ
ed the State of Oregon will fig
ure. Railroad men hold that
California is widely known on
the European Continent, while
Oregon has not been put forward.
If the German party is impress
ed by the resources of this state
and the farming methods em
ployed here, it is believed the re
port will show the fact.
The value of such a showing
is explained by the fact that
whatever reports are made will
fall into the hands of agricultur
ists who are inclined to follow
advanced methods. .. If any of
these people are induced to come
to this state, they would be of
the most enterprising class and
add materially to the develop
ment of the state.
