The teuiN'raturo has In'oh slight
ly altovo tho normal for the week.
rhere was no rainfall. Tho tlays
wero bright, with warm sunshino,
which wa about the average. The
nights wero cool, light frost,
which did no apparent dainago, no-
uirml on the 2:id. This has been
tho llrt wifk of good, growing
spring weather, this season, and
tho result is that visitation has
niHtlo niarked progress.
Winter whoat is invariably re
ported to bo in oitcellent condition
Spring Hooding in Umatilla county,
and in icotions of tho vulley coun
ties is dono. but most of it about
being finished up. Early spring
grain is up. Showers aro desired
in the Walla Walla valloy to give
tho lato spring sown grain a start.
llm oilocl ol loo niitcli rain on
whoat, on tho low land is shown
to havo boon slightly injurious in
tho Willainctto valloy. Larger
spring acreages than usual Is and
has boon sown.
All variotios of fruit trees in all
parts of tho state, save in tho more
mountainous sections of eastern
Oregon, aro in full bloom, and in
many sections, tho peach and
cherry blossoms are fulling. The
frost on tho 23d did not injure the
fruit. Wild strawberries are in
bloom. Grape vinos are budding
out rapidly. In Wasco, Sherman,
Morrow, Gilliam, back from tho
river, and counties In tho south, tho
apple aiid cherry trees aro budding,
Tho present outlook is that peaches
will bo a short crop, but tho other
fruit will bo plentiful,
. Spring Heeding is being finished.
Tho weather is favorablo for tho
lambing season. Sheep nhoaring
will begin within the next ten days.
The grass is growing very rapidly
airording good grazing. Vegetables
aro becoming very plentiful, nnd
gardonlng is giirally being vny
rapidly pushed. The weather for
.lie wp-'V bns Wa all that could
ls desired and all growing V'X'VH
tion shows tho favorablo changes.
Tho season continues about two
weeks later than usual.

A good ticket is tho outcome of
tho work of th state republican
convention. There is no name on

i , . . . .
puhleans, oun for good reason boa
Hate to cast his vote.
No man in the state is better
known than the candidate for the
ofllco of governor, ll. I. Thomp
son Is a man ot earnestness, intcg
nty and force. His capacity for
business i of thn first order. In
the many public itous in
which ho has been tried ho has
served ably ami faithfully. With
him public office is a publio trust
II is an able man of nfl'airs, has
no hobbies, will take care of the
interest of the state, and will
make a record as governor that
none has excelled.
Honorable and efficient H'rforiii-
auce of public duty entitles Geo,
W. Mcllrido to re-dootiuu to the
ollnte of secretary of state. In his
hands this important ofllco of sec
rotary of state has been adminis
tered with Industry and fidelity.
Always attentive to duty, painstak
ing in his methods, uniforinlycour
teous in his demeanor, cart ful in
all things of the interests of tin
state, he has leon a model public
official and servant; ami his re
nomination w ithout opposition is a
pro'r testimonial t't his public
and private character.
the canUiiUte for treasurer.
Philip Mcteluuv of Grant, linn lung
lcen a resident of Eastern Oregon
Ho has led an aU'hY d proinl
nent life in business' in that parte
the state, and is well known for hi
public spirit and private worth.
Frank C. linker, named for re
election as atate printer, ha in
formed the duties of that office
during the lust four years with
promptness and efficiency. A a
practical printer ho ha taken
pride in tho work, and ha done
it in a manner quite abovo criti
cism, lie basset up nt tlio camtal
an exot llent establishment for exe
cution of the work, and on his prov
en merit! is entitled to re-election.
K. It. McKlroy, as superintendent
of publio instruction, has likewise
shown his efficiency, nnd his re-
nomination i an acknowledgement
One of the most important du
ties of the convention w as that of
naming a candidate for the su
preme bench. Tho election of It.
S. I lean will go far toward restoring
confidence in that tribunal. Judge
He.n is a man of judicial temper,
of ample experience, of unsullied
reputation. No one will ever huh
pected of having, through him, a
"pull" tin tho supremo court.
Mr, Herman has lioon very act
ive, industrious and successful
member of congress, and his nom
ination for a fourth term is duo to
general appreciation of this fact.
Ho has learned tho duties and op
portunities of n member, and there
fore can probably bo of more ser
vice to tho state than any other
man who could 1k sent at this time
to congress, Apart from and be
yond this, Mr. Hermann's candi
dacy represents tho position of the
stato of Oregon on tho tariff ques
tion, and thoy who oppose him will

I bis case comes bore on nppeal

On the lVth day of January,

It is evident that it was the pur-
jkwo of the deceased to bequeath
nothing to cither his daughter "Lib"

The evidence shows that Goorge
W. Jones wore married in Ohio and

It is shown, that while they lived

was never known to speak to either

saying that he did not blame him,
but that he "wanted to show peo'
plo what kind of a "damn woman
she (moaning his wife) was." On
one occasion, while living in Yam- I
hill county, Oregon, a neighborwent
to tho house of doccasd for tho pur- ?
pose of procuring pasturago for some i
horses. Uoing admitted to the A
house, and finding dwcitm-d sitting J
by tho fire, he sat down besido him,

ing, pounced upon him and boat '
him unmercifully, because'-' he-gun-
plcloned that improper relation ex-

There is no question in my iriind,
that" the conduct of deceasct tc- ' 1
wards wifo and daughter grew' out .
of bis suspicion of hi wife' fidelity
and his belief that bis daughter
wan not his own child, and this, I
think, was the occasion of his leav
ing them each one dollar in bis
will. True, he referred in hi w ill
to the daughter a "my daughter
"Lib," but it appears from the evi
dence that the will was drawn by jl
and under the advice of learned
counsel, who knew the importance ,
of recognizing ln r .in the will,
where, as in this case, there was no t
evidence to raise the nlijihtoHt sus
picion of tho wife'o infidelity or of
the daughter's illegitimacy. ;
There is no question, under tlio
evidence, of tho legitimacy of the
jaruvioiier, aim mere is noi itte t
slightest cause shown why the de
ceased should have sujiected hi
wife. On the contrary, the evi
dence shows her to have Inen a
quiet, nnassuming, hard-working
woman, who made but few ac
quaintances, and those only of the
inoet casual nature, and her rela- '
tions with them were such a should I
not have raised tho slightest sunpi- j
cion against her in the mind of a
Bane ix-nton. j
Numerous authorities were cited
by counsel, ujKin the argument, in
which there appeared upon ta.i:al
examination, to be some conflict a
to what constituted insanity; but
upon close examination, I think
there is, in reality, no conflict. The
opinion of the court in the case of
Seamens Friend Society vs Holler,
33 X. Y., 510, clearly define insan
ity in matters of this kind. That'
was a case involving the fame prin
ciplcs that are involved in this
caso, and the facts are alniosti the. .
same. Judge Denio, in delivering'5
the opinion of the court, said: 'if
person persiotenUy believes sup
posed facts to hrhi which have no
real'xistsnce,' extopt-'ia his per
verted imsginat!rm, mad against all
evidenco and probability, and con
ducts himself, however lopi-ally,
upon the assumption ot their real ,
existence, he is, so far as they aro
concerned, under a morbid delusion,. 1
and delusion, in that sense, is insan
ity. Such a person is essentially
mad or insano on those subjects,
though on other subjects be may
act and speak ss a reasonable man."
In the same caso, in a concurring
opinion, Judge Jtrown sanl: A
monomaniac may made a valid w ill,
when its provisions have no con
nections with the particular delu
sion, and there is no reason to think
they nreinfiunced by it; but where,
