Who ia the man Hint all Wallowa
county Democrat favor for president?
The question was unanswered at the
gathering of the faithful held in the
court room Saturday. It waa decided
to leave the selection of Wallowa's four
delegates to the state convention to the
new central committee that will be
elected on April 17. The state conven
tion to be held June 16. will elect del
egates to the national convention and
the question up was instructions tor the
Wallowa delegates. Judge Corking
thought it would be a rood Idea to let
the state know how Wallowa stood.
Chairman 6. F. Pace invited someone,
anyone to sound the keynote, but 10
one felt tuneful. All laughed. Every
body understood everybody else without
words. As Judge Corking said, it would
be impossible to find four Democrats in
the county who ere for anybody but
the people's choice. The Democrats
and Republicans have swapped places.
In 1904 the Republicans bad but one
candidate; the Democrats many. Now
the latter know no name but Bryan,
while the Republicans are flirting with
There waa a goodly representation
present from all parts ot the county,
and candidates not a few. All were in
a good humor and more than one old
wheelhorse said it looked like a Dem
ocratic year from president to coroner.
Chairman 8. F. Pace filled vacancies
on the committee for this meeting from
those in attendance, and later an
nouncsd the complete committee to
serve until April 17 as follows: Los

The Dalles school superintendent has
cold feel. He is trying to dodge the
debute with Wallowa County high. He
says it is unfair to the "big" schools to
have to meet the "little" schools. H
has asked Wallowa County high to re.
sign in their favor. Prof. Moore told
him this school was ready, and It it
defeated The Dulles then It would re
