THE WHOLE TICKET.
Although the campaign is just
opening indications pointing to
the election of the entire republi
can state ticket are rapidly mul
tiplying. Little differences on non-essentials
which have existed here
and there in republican ranks in
the state have, like greater dif
ferences, been thrust aside and
everywhere evidences multiply
that republicans are promptly
and enthusiastically lining up to
the support of their ticket-
This determination to support
the party nominations embraces
not only the state ticket, but in
cludes the county ticket as well.
This is as it should be, for the
entire ticket in each county in
the state is named by the party
at large and is entitled to the
unanimous support of the, party.
In the different counties through
out the state we notice excep
tionally good and worthy men
are placed on the county ticket
and there is a determination to
support them with . the full
strength of the party vote.
t This will preclude a division of
the county offices with the min
ority party in any county having
a republican majority.
Here in little old Benton coun
ty there has long existed among
republicans a namby-pamby sen
timent that it is little difference
who ,is chosen to the several
county offices for "there's no
politics in them." This foolish
sentimentality has kept demo
crats in the most important and
lucrative county offices to the ex
clusion of equally as competent
and worthy republicans, although
the county has a decisive repub
This is a wrong to the earnest
and worthy men who have been
placed on the county republican
ticket, and a reproach to the
party. It has most seriously
militated against the influence of
Benton county in the larger j
counsels of the party. And all
this because of the thoughtless
indifference of some, and the
silly sentimentality of other re
publicans. "No politics in it,"
eh? Ask Multnomah county. re
publicans if this is true. Scan
the history of this county care
fully and find the answer nearer
Just at the prer?:it juncture it
is more than ever heretofore in
cumbent on every republican in
Benton county to stand firm in
the support of the county ticket
The standard bearer of the
party, Dr. James Withycombe, is
a citizen of Benton county. This
appeals to the local pride of our
people. He will Teceive many
votes more than the entire re
publican vote, and -, he should.
The several candidates on the
county ticket are for their re
spective offices, equally entitled
to party support They are good,
honest, competent and deserving
men and the chosen nominees- of
the party. Unless they, too, are
elected republicans may not so
easily claim the felicitations of
the whole party within the state.
The just conclusion of the
whole matter is, support the
The Allison amendment to the
railway rate bill now before the
senate has been greatly modified,
and thus made acceptable to the
friends of the bill, and to the ad
ministration. The conservative
senators, and those believed to
be under the influence of the
railways have accepted restricted
couit review in place of the
broad review they preferred,
and now it will have all republi
can senators voting for the bill.
This is a victory for the adminis
tration and a decided victory
over the democrats in the senate
who were merely playing for
The amendment expedites ap
peals to the supreme court
The power to issue preliminary
injunctions is not withheld, but
the exercise of it is so condition
ed that it cannot be abused.
Since the power of injunction is
certainly an inherent one and
cannot be taken from the courts,
the senate has proceeded wisely
to modify its exercise.
In Ruined 'Frisco.
Mrs. Gene Simpson, who re
turned a few days a-o' mm Sjld
Francisco where she went in
search of her sisters who lost
their homes in the earthquake
and fire tells interesting things of
that city. One sister, Mrs.
Estes.' who was in Corvallis
last summer, where she became
quite well known, saved only the
clothes that she and her children
wore, and four, valuable costumes
from her dressmaking parlor.
Mrs. Estes expected to rttiirn
and secure most of her belongings
but the fire reached tne boue
ahead of her. Mr. and Mrs.
Watsou, the latter another sister
ot Mrs. Simpson, lost their
home and three cottages- by
dynamite, and their business
place by fire. They buried
silverware, dishes and a few valu
able articles in the yard, but it

will know vsheiher the article?
are all right or not.
In the midst of the horrors of
fire and earthquake there were
happenings that had a humorous
side, especially as they are re
called now. One lady of Mrs
Simpsou's acquaintance had just
purchased and hung some very
fine lace curtains. When the
earthquake arid fire threatened
destruction .to the city, this lady
pulled down her new curtains
and rolled them with a few other
prized pes -essions, in a mattrer.
With this she started for a plac-
of safety, but sank exbausuti
under the burden. To a nnu
and woman who passed by she
gave the treasured bundle, hop
ing it might prove a blessing.
Slie slevt that eight in the park
and returned the next day, to
find her home undamaged! But
the lace cuitains v.ill adorn
other windows than hers, if the
man and woman escaped.
A streak ot luck: Deteii a
couple ot young women who had
been driven from their homes
by the horror. They were walk
ing out of the burning district
when a drayman gave them a
ride. In the drav he had a trunk
that he had sought twice to get
taken across the ferry to Oakland
The girls were jolly and the dray
man was susceptible to feminine
charm, and after a third trial to
get the trunk transferred he told
the girls they might have it, and
tie hauled it several miles out of
the city to a place of safety.
Upon opening it the girls found
that they had i truck a veritable!

Simpson, they could scarcely
walk for their load'W finery.

The Young Physician.
WHAT HIS EXPERIENCE PROVED.
In the early sixties it -was usually the
- duty of a practicing physician to ride
many miles every day- on his regular
round of visits upon nis patients. In
those days a young man who had received
a splendid medical training in one of the
best medical colleges of that day was ac
customed to ride ten, twenty, thirty miles
or more visiting the sick and afflicted.
His success was soon phenomenal. . Doc
tors and families called him for consulta
tion to towns at considerable distances
by rail. His specialty was the cure of
. those common and distressing diseases
- of womea He had early discovered that
by combining the extracts of the follow
ing medicinal plants, in just the right
proportion, without the. use of alcohol nis
"Prescription" almost invariably cured
such cases. Later, in order to place this
remedy before the public in a shape easily
to be procured, he established . a labo
ratory at Buffalo, N. Y., where regu
larly qualified chemists were put in
charge to accurately prepare his "Pre
scription " and put it in shape for ship
ment to all parts of the world. This
remedy, which he named Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription is not a "patent
medicine" but a tonic and nervine for
women, and a regular physician's pre
scription, and contains the following in

That-the leading medical writers and
teachers of all the several schools of
practice endorse and recommend, in the
strongest terms possible, each and every
ingredient entering into the composition
of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Piscovery
for the cure of weak stomach, dyspepsia,
catarrh of stomach, "liver complaint,"
torpid liver, or biliousness, chronic bowel
affections, and all catarrhal diseases of
whatever region, name or nature. It is
also a specific remedy for all such chronic
or long standing cases of catarrhal affec
tions and their resultants, as bronchial,
throat and lungdit'nsesxceptconsnmp-;
tion) acconipPwiiicd with severe coughs. It
is not so pood for acute colds and coughs,
but for linjrerinjr,' or chronic cases it is
especially efficacious in producing per
fect cures. It contains Black Cherrybark,
Golden Seal root, Bloodroot, Stone root.
Mandrake root and Queen's root all of
which are highly praised as remedies for
all the above mentioned affections by such
eminent medical writers and teachers as
Prof. Bartholow, of Jefferson Med. Col
lege; Prof. Hare, of -the Univ. of Pa.;
Prof. Finley Ellingwood, M. D., of Ben
nett Med. College, Chicago ; Prof. John
King, M. D., late of Cincinnati ; Prof.
John M. Scudder, M. D.. late of Cincin
lati; Prof. Edwin M. Hale. M. D.. cf
Hahnemann Med. College. Chicago, and
scores of others equally eminent in their
several schools of practice.
The "Golden Medical Discovery " is the
only medicine put up for sale tnrougn
druggists for like purposes, that has any
such professional endorsement .worth
more than any number of ordinary testi
monials. Open publicity of its formula
on tho bottle wrapper is the best possible
guars ty of its merits. A glance at this
publiL jed formula will show that "Golden
Medical Discovery" contains no poison
ous or harmful agents and no alcohol
chemically pure, triple-refined glycerine
being used instead. Glycerine is entirely
unobjectionable and besides is a most
useful ingredient in the cure of all stom
ach as well as bronchial, throat and lung
affections. There is the highest medical
authority for its use in all such cases.
The "Discovery "is a concentrated glyc
eric extract of native, medicinal roots
and is safe and reliable.
