STREET CAR CONDUCTOR.
Written by One of Them Who
Has een Through the Mill.
He is only placed on the rear
end of a teetering, crank-serving,
sparl-spiltter so that the dear pub
lic May have a safe target on
which io vent their righteous
spite when somebody else makes
Whenever you want to get off
at Fifteenth and Harney, sit in
the corner, hamp up and look
wise till you reach Eighteenth,
and then jump up and tell the
"con" what you think of him for
not reading your mind properly
and in season. If you have any
coin with a hole in it or other
wise off color, do your best to
pass it off on the conductor for
he draws a princely salary and
won't mind it when the company
turns down about 30 cents a day i
on him. When you want trans
fers, don't say so till you get off
the car and then abuse the "con"
because he hasn't them ready for
you; you've got aright to cuss
him, for the chances are you are
the onlv one in town that rides
on his car and the company will
promptly discharge him if he
dares to "talk back" to you.
Stick your feet across the aisle,
and when the "con" falls over
them tell him he's a big stiff.
Don't get on the car unless you
have at least half a freight car
load of big bundles in your arms.
Put them all on the seat, because
the public is used to standing
and won't mind it; and if the
"con" says anything' pull a gun
on him and teach him to respect
you. Then, if you can manage
to mak? the "con" think you
gave him a dollar instead of a
muddy nickel with a hole in it,
ma be you can cause him 1 to dig
up 95 cents, and if he refuses, re
port him as trying to rob you in
broad daylight. If the car runs
slow pull out your watch, scowl
and cuss the "con;" of course he
is running the car. And if the
car runs fast, look murderous at
the "coo" and remark that it is
no wonder that there are so many
accidents, considering how many
numskulls the street car company
keeps on its pay roll.
Then, if you are a woman and
want down at the next corner,
signal the "con" before you get
half way down the block; then
after the car stops, tell all your
friends aboard goodbye, take your
time about it, and then occupy
five minutes getting off the car;
and if the "con" think you are
down and gives the motorman
two bells, jump back and say,
"Why, my goodness, what do
Lay your umbrella so that it
sticks across the car, and when
the "con" or somebody else falls
over it, cuss the "con" in sweet
feminine tones and sue the com
pany next day. And try and
take nineteen children, two par
rots and a canary bird with you
in your trip across the town,
for the chances are you won't see
more than seventv-five other wo
men aboard thesamecar with you,
and if the car is crowded look
dagers at the "con." Then when
you transfer at Eighteenth and
Dodge stop, run back and kiss a
couple of friends goodbye on the
car you are leaving, and, if the
"con" who has been holding his
car five minutes gets tired and
leaves you, paw the air and run
right down and see the superin
tendent and tell him how you
have been treated.
It is an awful state ot things.
Former Trolley Conductor.
Of the three candidates on the
republican ticket for the nomi
nation of congressman, S. B.
Huston, stands out as the best
fitted, the best suited and most
practical one. He is a man of
wide business experience, one of
the aplest men In tAis state, aad
his character has not a mar on it
By his frugality, his industry, his
honesty, his sterling character,
he has won the confidence, good
will and esteem of all men wh
know him. His work has been
out in the world mixing with his
fellow citizens, and doing part of
the state s work, helping to build
up within the borders of our
beloved Oregon, a strong and
powerful state. He knows
through this experience in the
practical affairs of men, exactly
what onr people want and what
this . great state needs to
increase the happiness, prosperity
and usefulness ot each citizen and
this common wealth.
He stands out today as the
champion of the people's rights
in the great "Maxium Rate Law
War" which President Roosevelt
is striving for in congress. He
has no hesitancy in stating his
position to the people.
He has the couragre ot his
convictions to say to the people
of his district, "I am in favor
of a law to prohibit public
officials from traveling on rail
road passes. I am also opposed
to this method of bribing public
officials and duriHg this entire
campaign I have paid for every
mile over which I have traveled."
Republicans, he is not riding
on a railroad pass when he comes
to see you. Republicans, are you
in favor of the "Rate" bill?
Then vote for S. B. Huston.
Republican, are you opposed to
a candidate for congress and
finally the congressman himself
riding on a railroad pass? Then
vote for S. B. Huston.

And Fifty Years Residents
Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Buchanon,
for fifty years respected residents
of Benton' county, v celebrated
their golden wedding, at their
home in this city, Saturday.
Mr. Buchanan came trora Eng
land to America in '49 going to
California where he participated
in the big gold excitements oi
that day. In 1853 he came to
Oregon and while in this section
purchased the ranch ten miles
south of Corvallis that has ever
since been the family home.
Upon his return to England Mr.
Buchanan was married April 7,
1856, to Miss Jane Galbraith and
together they came back to Ben
ton county to make their home.
Of the living children only one

Has Right to Expect It.
In asking re-nomination to the
office which he now fills Attorney-General
A. M. Crawford
is doing that which will un
doubtedly meet with the
favor to republicans. To re
elect to a second term a man who
has been a good officer is esteem
ed an endorsement worthy work
ing for and this is what Mr.
Crawford is seeking.
During the four years that he
has filled the office ot Attorney
General of Oregon Mr. Craw
ford has paid strict attention to
all matters claiming his atten
tion. His record is such that he
has a right to hope for re-election.

I am not tbe candidate of any clique,
faction, organization or society. Eastern
Oregon, Multnomah County and tbe nor

didates for U. S. Senator and for the
other state and district offices and it is
a reasonable claim that Southern Oregon
is entitled to this place on the ticket.
Oregon has never received any of this
interest paid on its money and if elected
State Treasurer, I will pay over to the
state every dollar of interest earned on
its funds whether a law be passed requir
ing me to do so or not. This will result
in a saving to the taxpayers of this state
of from $15,000 to $20,000 per annum.
