JUDGE ATjTON B. P A R K E R A N D H IS P R E S ID E N T IA L BOOM.
Judg« Pa: k*r. whose boom for the Democratic presidential nomination is now weO
ander way all over the country, is chief iudçe of the court of appeals of New York state,
the highest judicial office in the gift of the Empire State.
L Y ON S
By Judge Hamilton at Eugene
To Hang April 17 Next.
Q u i c k Justice
Just now the selection of a place
for holding tbe republican con
gressional convention in which to
select a candidate to succeed the
late congressman ToDgue is being
considered by politicians.
and Eugene seem to he rivals in the
race for convention honors and in
this particular contest no trouble
should be experienced in making
the selection, Eugene being tbe
most central and desirable place in
ever particular for holding this im
portant convention. W ith a late
single exception— the renomination
of Congressman Tongue at Rose-
burg last spring— these conventions
have invariably been held at points
in the north end of tbe district. It
is therefore proper that the forth
coming congressional convention be
held at Eugene.

The Benefit of Change.
IVe are like house plants:
need a change of soil now aud then
to he replanted. New scenes, new
experiences, new surroundings— a
change of climate, dry air instead
of moisture, sunshine in place of
cloud. This is sometimes essential
to health. There is conditions near
at hand that are better than Europe
can offer. Take a month or two in
California. Plant yourself for a time
where there are no irritations, where
the hotel is beyond criticism, the
landscape pleasing, and where warm
sunny weather invites to walks and
drives. Pure aud dry air, and the
increased electric influences
shine are vastly helpful.

John Wesley was born in Epworth.
England, on June 17, 1703. He came of
i long line of ministers of the Church
of England. He early showed sigus of
religious zeal and organized a class of
young men for si»ecittl work. Among
them were his brother Charles, after
ward the famous hymn writer, aud
George Whitefield, destined to become
a great evangelist. In 1734 Governor
Oglethorpe took out to Georgia his fa
tnoua colony of debtors, spendthrifts
and adventurers, and Jobu Wesley ac
copied his invitation to accompany him
as missionary to the colony and the
A fter remaining in this country two
years aud four months he returned to
