IJCTTEVILLIi IODGE, No.59,I.O. O. F.
Iast Thursday evening, Grand Secre
tary I'acon, accompanied by several
members of Oregon Tjodge. of this -itv,
went to Ihitteville to institute an Odd'
Fellow's Iodge. At Aurora they were
met by Mr. Ii. .S. Clark with his carri

elegant banquet prepared by the fair
ladies of liutteville, and it is needless
to say that ample justice was done to
tho bountiful supply of good thintrs.
The following otliceVs were enstalled
for tho ensuing term : 15. F. Cone, N.
G. ; P. J. Cone, V. G. ; P.. S?. Clark, Sec
retary ; II. A. Jhown, Treasurer. Sev
eral members were initiated that even
ing, and the L.odge starts out with flat
Williams and Lane. Williams and
Lane addressed their fellow citizens
at Pope's Hall last Tuesday afternoon.
Mr. Lano complained of being indis
josed, and we therefore make some
allowance for his feeble elfort. Mr.
Williams made an excellent speech,
and was greeted with much enthusiasm.
Lane was laboring under considerable
disadvantage only seven Democrats
turned out to hear him, and they failed
to even applaud their candidate during
his whole speech. Lane's chances for
re-election are very slim, and he will
be beat in Clackamas county by about
Thk " itKATiiKX Chinki;." Last
Monday morning notice was given to
the boys and girls who were working
in the Alden Fruit-dryer that their
wages would be reduced'trom Scents to
(i cents per hour, and that thev would
have to work twelve hours "per day.
Tho majority of the young laborers
refused to work for the wages olfered,
and now eleven Chinamen and four
white boys are employed. Tho Celes
tials work for fifty cents a day. We
firmly believe that there would be
more profit in white labor at a dollar
per day than the Chinese at fifty cents,
but wo are not running the machine.

A farmer while waiting for the fer
ry boat at Chase's ferry last week, by
some means allowed his horses to get
started down hill, and they went into
the river. The horses seemed to enjoy
the bath, and the Granger managed to
turn them around in the middle of the
river while they were swimming. The
wagon was loaded with wheat, and,
strange to say, only one empty wheat
sack was lost. The Granger laid over
one day at t ho ferry to dry his wheat,
and then went on his way rejoicing.
The circus last Saturday, played to a
crowded house probably carrying o!f

was fair, but not so good as was expect

out th- State. Our city always turns

had listened to Lane for about ten min

is what ho thought of his candidate:

Aye, that is the question. Is it better
to quiver from head to foot in tho par
oxysms of fever and ague, or to banish
the atrocious disease by a course of
that standard antifebrilo'reniedy, Hos

doubt as to the response of the malaria
s' rieken to this inquiry. From every
locality on this continent whose in
habitants are tormented with the
shivering plague comes an increasing
demand for t he only genuine prevent

are these but poisonous palliatives,
which cease after a time to produce
any beneficial effect whatever, and if

specific for intermittent and remittent
disease, Hosteler's Hitters, substituted
in their place.
