A dirtier and more contemptible
piece of political work was never
perpetrated in a Convention than
the adoption of a resolution by the
Republican convention last Satur
day charging the present Polk
County Court with extravagance in
oflice. The resolution is dirty be
cause it was aimed at a faithful
Republican member of tho court,
aud it is contemptible because it is
untrue. It was introduced for no
other purpose than to slap John
Teal in the face, and create a
prejudice against his re-nomination.
The truth of the matter is, there
never was a court that took hold
of the county affairs under as ad
verse circumstances as did the
present Court. Everything was at
sixes 'and sevens owing to the
courthouse fire; the county was in
debt $115,000 and paying interest
at the enormous rate of $700 a
month; State taxes have doubled
in the last two years and, yet, in
the face of all of these conditions,
the county indebtedness has been
reduced until there are now less
than $7000 worth of warrants out
standing. The books of all the
county officers have been experted
each year and every cent of the
county funds accounted for. Never
in the last twenty years have our
county affairs been in a better
shape than they are today. The
big county debt has been paid, and
taxes next year will be low, no
matter who is elected in June. The
miserable resolution adopted by
Saturday's convention was un
grateful and uncalled for. If the
delegates didn't want John Teal
for commissioner, there were other
ways of defeating him that would
have been open and manly, and
that would not have ground Mr.
Teal into the dirt and dust of
humiliation. They could have de
feated him without adopting
methods that would bring the
blush of shame to a gang of Port
land nofth-end ward heelers.
It's comical to hear some of the
boys who helped to stack the cards
for Harris in Polk county now
swearing that they were for Her
maim all the time.
Now watch 'em grab for the tail
end of Binger's band-wagon.

No other medicine acts like it;

other medicine has restored health
and strength at so little cost.

"For about two vears I suffered from n vwr

E of 13 Knsirrii Ave.. Toronto, Or.t:mu. "I
tried a crtat number of remedies without suc
cess. I finally lost faith in them all. I was so
far cone that I could not for a lonj? tune bear
nay solid food in my stomach ; felt melancholy
and depressed. Some four months ago a li lend

benefit that I continued the medicine, I have

sands of dyspeptics throughout the land."
A man can succeed and be strong if
he heeds Nature's warnings. 'When
there is indigestion, loss of appetite,
ringing in the ears, dizziness, spots be
fore the eyes or palpitation of the heart ;
any or all of these symptoms point to
weakness and loss of nutrition. Dr.

Although defeated for the office
to which he aspired, E. C. Kirk
palrick can retire from the race
with the comforting reflection that
he made an open and honorable
fight for the nomination, and that
the friends who started with him
when the contest began remained
with him to the end. No set of
men were ever more faithful to a
friend than were tho delegates who
supported Mr. Kirkpatrick in last
Saturday's convention. The heavy
vote given him by the citizens of
his home town was a fine tribute
to his popularity among the people
who have known him from his boy
hood and who appreciate his fit
ness and ability to fill the important
office of State Senator. Nor was
this friendship and loyalty confined
to the people of Dallas. After the
convention adjourned, men from
every precinct in Polk county
flocked to his headquarters and
grasped his hand, assuring him of
their continued confidence and
friendship. Mr. Kirkpatrick made
a clean and gallant fight for the
nomination, and did nothing in lite
campaign that he will ever have
cause to regret.
Observer readers who enjuyed
the delicious satire of our "Silt ts
Basun" correspondent during the
memorable city campaign of 1902
will hail with pleasure his return to
Polk county, and our subscribers,
one and all, will read with interest
his account of the recent republican
county convention, printed on the
fourth page of this paper. Age has
dimmed the old gentleman's sight
and his hand is not as steady as in
the days when he laid low the mighty
giants of the forest in clearing his
"tirnbur clamo," but it will be noted
that his power of observation and
his knowledge of the inside work
ings of politics are just as keen as
ever, and that few of the details of
the convention escaped his atten
tion. The resolutions adopted by the
Polk county republican convention
are not worthy of the name of a
platform. They stand for nothing,
advocate nothing, and contain no
principles for which to fight in the
coming campaign. They were
drawn for the sole purpose of slap
ping John Teal in the face and
defeating him for re-nomination.
It is reported that Lee Howell, a
member of the committee, vigorous
ly opposed this clause in the
resolutions, and the Observer is
inclined to believe this report. Mr.
Rowell is a man in whoso make-up
there is nothing narrow or under
handed, and those who know him
best are certain that he did not
sanction the defeat of Mr. Teal by
any such methods.
Republican resolutions with one
United States Senator's name men
tioned and the other left out don't
sound right. Polk county is tho
only county in the state that has
adopted such resolutions this year.
The writer of this paragraph is
proud to be numbered among the
friends and admirers of Oregon's
brilliant junior Senator, and he is
also one o a large number of Re
publicans in Polk county who would
have liked to have seen some
recognition extended to that faith
ful servant, Hon. John H.Mitclu-1..

Even if Senator Fulton and
Harris are the closest political
friends, it wouldn't have done any
harm for the Polk County Re
publican convention, which was
dominated by the Harris forces, to
have said just a little word or two
for that faithful servant, Hon.
John II. Mitchell. It would have
been only a just and gracious
recognition of the good work that
Senator Mitchell is doing for Ore
At the Republican county con
vention held last Saturday, Dallas
was told to retire to the extreme
rear, and there be seated. Many
old-time Republicans and faithful
workers in the party throughout
the county were told to do likewise.
This strikes the average citizen as
being very poor politics.

The largest Bum ever paid for a pre
scription, changed hands in San Fran
cisco, August 30, 1901. The transfer in
volved in coin and stock 12,500.00 and
was paid by a party of business men for
a specific for Eright's Disease and Dia
betes, hitherto incurable diseases.
They commenced the serious investi
gation of the specific Nov. 15, 1900.
They interviewed ecores of the cured
and tried it out on its merits by putting
over three dozen cases on th treatment
and watching them. They also got phy
sicians to name chronic, incurable cases,
and administered it with the physicians
for judges. Up to Aug. 25, eighty-seven
per cent of the test cases were either
well or progressing favorably.
There being but thirteen per cent of
failures, the parties were satisfied and
closed the transaction. The proceedings
of tho investigating committee and the
clinical reports of the test cases were
published and will oe mailed free on ap

Are due to Indigestion. Ninety-nlna of even
one hundred people who have heart troubM
can remember when it was simple indiges
tion. It Is a scientific fact that all cases oi
heart disease, not organic, are not only
traceable to, but re the direct result of indi
gestion. All food taken Into the stomach
which fails of perfect digestion ferments and
swells the stomach, puffing It up against the
heart. This interferes with the action ol
the heart, and in the course of time thai
delicate but vital organ becomes diseased.
Mr. D. Kauble, of Nevada, O., says: I had stomach
trouble and was in a bad stats as I had heart trouble
with It. I took Kodol Dyspepsia Cure for about foul
months and It cured me.
