other steamer lines to the Columbia will

Another thing which has been
brought to my attention lately, and
which of necessity encourages the bus'
Iness men and railroads of the North'

north from San Francisco. Nothing Is
going south of that port. Merchants

Portland, Or., October 3. Zera Snow,
as counsel for the gold standard Demo
crats, has filed a protest with Secretary
of State Klncaid against placing the
fusion candidates for electors on the
ticket as Democrats. The protest Is
based on the claim that Chairman Starr
had no authority to fill the nominations.
and that there were only three vacan
cies to fill as Oglesby, who had accepted
the nomination of the Democratic state
convention, had not declined when the
(nominations were filled. The gold
