Monterey. CaU in which he expressed
great and evident satisfaction at the
promptitude with which the subsidy of
$200,000 had been subscribed, jis be

Pursuant to his request the contract

indicated that obstacles suggested as
possible to arise will be provided

Utzinger's fine band paraded the
principal streets, discoursing excellent
music, starting at 7:30 r. m. and arriv
ing at the opera house about eight
o'clock, which was soon well filled,
there being quite a number of ladies,
and numerous Kepublicans.
In the boxes were P. W. Weeks and
wife, Mrs. Estes, Mrs. P. Grant, Post
master Bell and wife, Mrs. L Bergman,
Mrs. IL Chrislensou, Mrs. G. W.
Webb, George Nolaud and wife, lev.
S. M. Campbeli and wife, Mrs. N.

On the platform were the governor,
slate tre:isurer, John Gibson, C. J.
Trenchard, John H. Smith, Dr. O. B.
Estes, J. E. Higgius, Isaac Bergman,
John Kopp, John Caswell and Col.
The members of the band occupied
orchestral chairs, and opened the ex
ercises at 8:15 r. M., by playjug
"America,'' in fine style.
John IL Smith advanced lo the
front of the stage and introduced the
man who holds the money of the

He said, "I desire lo call your at
tention to a few facts in connection
with the present administration and
its conduct of "the financial affairs.
When I went in ollice, the stale was
$100,001) in debt I soon ascertained
that the United States owed us $12,
000; this was collected and with the
proceeds from the sale of swamp lands
the entire debt has been wiped out,
until now we do not owe a dollar.
'The common school fund has leen
well managed under a Democratic
board. In January, 18S7, we
had in the school fund $780,
000 in notes and mortga
ges which I received from my prede
cessor. January 1st of this year, we.
held $1,000,000 in notes and mortgages,
all of which are gilt edged securities,
and our school fund is in fine shape.
From the interest on these in July,
18S7, 1 paid one dollar on each child
entitled to school money, and this
year on 87,000 children they will each
draw 1.53, showing a maiked in

The band then rendered " Hail Co
lumbia" in stirringstrains, appreciated
"At 8:30 i m. County Clerk C. J.
Trenchard stepped forward and said
4,I have been honored with the duty of
presenting to you one who is well
known to many. He has been gover
nor of this state for some time, and
we propose to mako him governor for
some time more. You will now listen
to Governor Pennoyer.'
The governor said l'L am glad to see
so many present, especially so
mauv ladies, and desire to return my
thanks for the very handsome major
ity you rolled up for me four years
ago." In visiting Astoria now, I am
invigorated by the glorious breezes
wafted in from the ocean, and by the
cordial greeting you have given me."
He then gave a sketch of his admin
istration during the three and a half
years he has ocenpied the guberna
torial chair, claiming that the expenses
have been much less than before.
Considerable time was given to a
review of the portage railroad and the
boat railway, to overcome the obstruc
tions in the Columbia river between
The Dalles and Celilo, claiming
that the former could be constructed
in a year, and by voting the Demo
cratic ticket that plan would be en
dorsed, but if you vote the Republican
ticket you favor the boat railway,
which will cost far more, and take
thirty-five years to complete.
The locks and canals at the Wil
lamette Falls, Oregon City, were next
discussed, and statement made that
the company has never paid a cent
into the school fund as ten per cent
of their profits as provided by law
when they were constructed. They
revert to" the state in 1892, and the
state should take them, or compel
the company to reduce the rates of
toll. D. P.'Thompson, Mr. Eastham
and Mr. Morey are all owners of
stock in the lock company and are
all candidates for office on the
Republcan ticket, so that he claimed
they should not be elected, especially
at tins time when the question of
disposing of the locks will come up
D. P. Thompson's official record
as receiver ot the Holladay estate and
as mayor of Portland was severely
criticised, especially while holding the
latter office he had virtually encroached
upon the river line and taken in a
strip 40 x 200 feet, worth S100,000,
without any payment therefor, and
which the sneaker designated as
Thompson's "real estate bay window."
The lauor question was urouguc up,
and an effort made to show that his
position thereon had been right, while
his competitor's record in that direc
tion was the reverse.
He also charged his opponent with
securing the nomination by illegal and
dishonest means in the expenditure of
money, and that the same method of
buying the election was also being
resorted to by Mr. Thompson.
The inevitable tariff question
"bobbed up serenely" and the governor
illustrated tariff for revenue and for
protection, bringing in the stories of
James Otis in 17G1, and the flag of
"Free trade and sailors' rights," as
floatincr at the masthead of Paul Jones'
ship in 1812. The question of taxes
petitor, the story of the battle otTrz.
algar was given, where Lord Nelson ;
displayed the banner, "England expects
every man to do his duty."
The governor said. "Now at this
time in this matter of the equalization j
of taxes, Oregon expects every man ,
ofvou to do his duty. Yon are to!
decide the question at the polls, and
I trust to God your decision will be a
just one. I thank you," and the ad
dress was ended, ho having spoken one
hour and ten minutes.
The band played the glorious old
piece "Bed, White and Blue," after
which C. J. Trenchard called for
"three cheers for Governor Pennoyer,
and the Democratic ticket," and after
they were given, the audience dispersed.

'Some of the largest property
holders in Olympia," said a prominent
real estate man tills morning, "are the
very ones who discourage investments
by outsiders. Just us soon as they
hear of an intending purchaser, they
stick on two or three thousand dollars
more than the price asked, without
regard to its real value. It was only
iesterday that I had a piece of
nronertv for sale, the real value ot
which was 20,000. My man was
willing to give $25,000, but as soon as
I notified the owner, he calmly stuck
on another S5,000. My man left the
city, and I heard this morning that
he'had put his S25.000 into Aberdeen
property. Such men as these would
retard the growth of any city."

No matter what trade or
profession you choose you
will easily detect the men of
original ideas; the men who
push themselves and the town
the' live :n ahead; men who
are a credit to their profession
and the community the live
in: hut you are also sure to find
the imitators, those who are
at the rear end of the proces
sion, men who never have an
original, bright thought or do
an original, bright act. If let
alone they will exist on what
liberal, unsuspecting people
permit themselves to be rob
bed of; but no sooner does
the original, enterprising man
make a move, and the imitat
ing tail-endcr tries to benefit
by hts superior's genius.
