ed mayor of the city bv the coun
cil February 8, 1897, on the

Agr.ess Wilson of this city still
leads by 4,715 votes, LaGrande is

George W. Smith, through thestrorg
solicitation of his friends in Corvallis
and the country, has become a candi
date for county commissioner. No better
man can be found in our county. Suc
cessful in business, having the utmost
confidence of bis friends, fearless ot
action, and with every interest of our
county at heart, especially makes him
an ideal candidate.
If Mr. Smith is nominated no one will
ever have to apologize for his official

upon him as attorney-general of Oregon,
Mr. Crawford has in no instance "been
found wanting, and this is the character
of man we all need and it is now up to
us when we ballot next Friday to show
our appreciation and reward real merit.

The most vital thing before the
republican voters of Oregon to
day, is the election of the United
States Senator. In making this
selection, great care should be taken.
The man who is broad minded,

that Judge Watson meets all the
Republicans Do you oppose railroads
charging exhorbitant freight rates? Are you
opposed to cheap Chinese labor? Public
officials traveling on railroad passes? Then
vote for S. B. Huston.
That the voters of Oregon are
carefully reviewing the history and
character of the different candi
dates for the important office of
United States Senator, is a great
encouragement to men whose char
acter and reputation are above re
