Men Talked of for Various
County Offices in Polk
NOT GREATLY WARMED UP YET
Campaign Not Yrt Par Enough Along
to CwaU Central birring up, or
Bring Out Official Annouattmcoti
There Is tnoro or les political
talk in every count of the state ss
the time for primary election and
nominating conventions that will
name candidate to fill the countv
offices and send delegates to the
state convention, draws nigh,
l'ulk is no exception, and though
there is no scramble on, some fuel
ers have been thrown out along
certain lines and the rank and file
are evidencing some interest In the
discuaoion of the qualifications re
quired for the more important
The greater interest now mam
feat is among the republicans, the
democrats apparently preferring to
play a waiting game.
No official announcements have
been made by candidates for any
local oflice yet, but in connection
with the stale seuatorship the
names of C. E. Kirkpatrick, of
Dallas, D. h. Keyt, of Salt Lake,
and J. M. Stark, of Independence,
are freely mentioned. A number
of admirers of J. C. Hayter, editor
of the Polk Couoty OUerver, baye
also expressed a desire to bave him
make the race.
Very little interest is shown in
the representative to be elected
from this count, though G. L.
Kelt, of McCoy, and Maor Coop
er, of Independence, have been
mentioned for the place. It has
been suggested that to make it easy
on the state, Polk county might
select a candidate from Cola, to
save mileage bill, or go further to
ward the capital and select a repre
sentative from West Salem, where
both mileage and board might be
saved. If representative should go
to the Eola precinct, there are T.
V. Wann, Wess Hodson and
Henry Bropby provided they
would run. It is extremely doubt
fal as to the latter allowing the
use of his name, for he has tried
and quit political life. He was at
one time known as the ward "boss"
ofSalom, but retired and is now
enjoying pastoral life among the
goats and eheep on Eola'B hills
where he avers he is leading the life
of an honest man.
There is also the office of joint
representative for Polk and Lin
coln counties to be filled. R. F.
Jones, the present incumbent, ex
pects to move to Dallas in the
spring but whether cr not it w his
intention to make the effort for re
nomination has not been an
COUNTY JIIK5K. '
The office of county judge will
probably not go begging when the
time comes though there seems
to be no determined effort on the
part of an. '.one to secure the nom
ination. For that place, Frank
Butler of Falls City, W. M. Riddle
of Monmouth. Ed Coad of Dallas,
and J, H. Collins of Independence,
have been mentioned. .
For commissioners the names of
A. J. Richardson of Buena Vista,
J. A. Withrow of Suver, and F. S.
Powell of Monmouth, have been
nieiiutiuned by their friends.
COl NTY (-I.KHK.
Ed Hrnith of McCoy, is said to be
grooming for county clerk while
Harry Oper of Dallas, or J. L.
Iltuna of Independencs, might
be Induced to make the race U. 8.
IxiUghary whoe term will expire
next July is said to not be averse to
making the run again, if pressed
For sheriff, it is said Dallss rosy
furnish a candidate in the person
of M. O. Ellis. K. M. Young of
Independence, and M. Scraflbrd of
Lnckiamute, have been mentioned
and they say E. II. Hosner or
Monmouth, would take the nom
ination if offered to himl
John Van Orsdel, a young re
publican of Dallas, will measure
strength with Luther Ground, the
present incumbent, for count sur
veyor. 'DISTRICT ATTORNEY.
Polk county has had the district
attorney for the Third judicial dis
trict the past four years, and as
the term expires next July a suc
cessor to Mr. Hart is to be chosen.
So far, Mr. Hart wears the beam
ing smile of a candidate without
opposition, but in memtnts of
serious reflection, be admits that
some one may bob up at any time.
Roman Catholic War On Evils
"Social ostracism of divorcees,
wearers of decollete gowas, gam
blers, including players of bridge
whist and drinkers of the festive
cocktail, is ta become a part of the
battle of the Roman Catholic
Church upon evils prevalent in
society," says a dispatch from Hew
York. Filiae Fidi, Daughter! of
the Faith, is the name of a new
society which baa been organixed
to "disooontenance these usages
and cuitoms that are the evident
causes ot the spread of moral evil
Women of the best families and
the most distinguished Catholics
in New York City are among the
charter members. One of them
said the other day that no promi
nent Catholic can afford to remain
out of it, as it will reflect on her
own standards of conduct to do so.
The president is Mrs. Thomas
Wren Ward, of 15 East Ninth
street, and the secretary Mrs.
Schuyler N. Warren, ot 311 Lex
ington avenue. Miss Eliza 'Lum
rnis was the founder and is one of
the most active members.
The Cocaine Habit.
A movement has been inaugu
rated in New York to prohibit the
sale of cocaine except under au
thority of a doctor's prescription.
The "cocaine habit" increases at an
alarming rate, the drug having
tmnenduous sales in the cities.
The openness with which aris
tocratic "dope fiends" practice their
pet vice is something astonishing.
The wis slave of morphine, opium
or cocaine has discovered that the
surest way to conceal the vice is to
practice it in full yiew ot the audi
ence. Thus a man will come into
the drug shop when it is crowded
and say something to the clerk in
charge. The clerk digs up a black
bottle, mixes it with something
from the Boda fountain and the
fiend deliberately takes while the
crowd looks on. Not once in a
thousand times does anyone sus
pect that the eool person with the
dark mixture is a victim of drugs.
Lumber Required for Hop Houks
and Other Purposes Makes
Work For Mills
MILLS ARE READY TO START
About Oat Million and a Half Tut of
Logs In LucfciamuU Boom Rady
to be Cut Into Lumber
The iaw mill in North Indepen
dence owned by F. A. Douty fc Co.
will staH up in a few days and
will run fall time the rest of the
year. D. A. Hodge, foreman, is
now on hia way from Montreal,
Canada, here and upon his arrival
the Independence mill will start
immediately to cutting lumber.
A number of orders have already
been placed and the local demand
no doubt will be sufficient to con
sume the entire output. The
Donty company has- 1,500.000 feet
of logs in the boom at the mouth
of the Luckiamute, which will
keep the mill going for some time.
The Charter Oak mill near Mon
mouth will also start up right
away. W. M. Black, foreman for
Fred Oberer, has returned from a
trfn to Washington to resume work
and hereafter the whistle of the
Charter Oak mill will respond to
that ot the Independence mill.
The lumber that will be used in
building hop-houses in the imme
diate vicinity of Independence this
year will not vary materially from
the following estimate:
Walker Bros 4,000 ft.
J. E. Hubbard 70.000'
J. 11. Burton 60,000"
H. Hirschberg 75,000 "
Sloper Patton,. . . ... 25.000 "
Henry Ottenheimer . W.uuu
G.L.ROB,. 100,000 "
p. L, Hedges 40,000 "
Wlllard Bevens r 35,000 "
W. W. Percival 55.000 "
in addition to the lumber that
will be required for hop houses,
there Are a number of stock barns
to be built in the spring. J. H.
Burton and Davidson & Hedges
are among those who contemplate
building stack barns. There will
aUo be demand for lumber for resi
dence purposes and for buildings
of other character in Independence
and Yicinitv. in the spring. There
are now no vacant dwelling houses
in the city and in some instances
two families live under one roof.
Pending the contest over Reed
Smoot's eligibility to a seat- in the
United States seuate. on account of
his alleged advocacy of polygamy,
the New York World publishes the
following: "Every Mormon mis
sionary gets so much per convert
for man and wife, if he gets them
to Utah; $5 for a girl over 16, and
if he 'places' her, he gets $40 or
$00, sometimes aa low as $ 10.
" 'Placing' means if he has an
order for a plnral wife, and he fills
the order. A missionary makes
from $S00 to $2,500 for hia term."
Henrr Watterson, editor of the
Louisville Courier Journal, declares
for the nomination for president of
Mayor Gaorgo B. McCIellan of
New York. In a characteristic
editorial he says: "Son of an illus

American Women's Xejrlect.
Many men and women have been
walking these days some from
choice, others through necessity
but. iudizine from close observation
it is fair to conclude that the
majority know little about this
primitive and almost forgotten art,
writes Delia Austria in the Chicago
EveniDe Post. However successful
the American- woman may bo
along other lines, in walking she is
a failure; she has forgotten the
most elementry form of exercise
because it means more to say that
you play golf than to walk. The
art of walking not only demands
a common-sense woman, but
common-sense clothes; a hat that
does not quarrel with the wind, a
skirt that does not need to be held
out of the mud, shoes that will
touch the ground. It demands a
woman who knows even when cars
are moving. Walking is a valu
able form of exercise.
