A there appears to be indication
that all the counties in the First
Congressional District will have a
favored son to nominate at the
next convention, it will be in order
for the Headlight to" nominate B.
L. Eddy so that Tillamook county
can b represented in the grand
political shuffle for congressional
honors. If Harris was the speaker
of th last house, and obtained that
honor by the courtesy of the gentle
man from Tillamook Mr. Eddy was
recognized th leader on the floor of
th house during th last two state
legislatures, an honor which ba ob
tained by his own ability and fore
of cbaractfcr, and which entitles
him to the congressional honors if
the conevotion makes any change
ia congressman. . Eyery county in
th district is fully aware of tbie,
and th Eugene Register roust not
loose sight of this fact. If it U look
ing for a young and energetic re
publican with Koosevelt's traits of
character to represent th First
Congressional District in congress,
then Mr. Eddy Is the man that tbe
congressional toga should fall on.

(SAM FRANCIHOO CHKoMCLE.)
Now that the Lewie and Clark
Exposition at Poitland, Ore., next
year has been assured through the
Congressional appropriations that
has been made for it, popular in
terests will doubtless be aroused in
the story of the expedition and in
those who contribute materially to
its success. The iatrepid explores
who headed the memorable expe
dition which added tbe territory
now represented in the States of
Oregon, Washigton. Idaho, Mon
tana and the two Dakota to the
United States, would have doubt
less failed in their enterprise bad
It not been for tbe timely assistance
they received from Sacajawea, a
Shoshone girl of 16, held captive in
Mandans' winter camp, where
Lewie and Clark quartered. 8he
was the slave wife of a French
half-breed interpreter, and iu grati
tude for th services th explorers
rendered 16 her in childbirth, she
accompanied the expedition west
ward as a guide. " She pacified the
unfriendly Shoshones, obtained
food and horses when : the expedi
tion reached the "Gales of the
Mountains" aud had to abandon
the canoea, smoothed the way
through tbe territory occupied by
the Flatheads and the Nez Perces,
and, after spending the winter
with the party at the mouth of the
Columbia, piloted it 6afely back on
the return trip. The women of
the six Stales named have organ
ized a Sacajawea Statue Association
to erect a suitable memorial at the
centennial exposition grounds, com
memorating her services to the ex
pedition and to the Nation. It is
to take the form of a statue, to
cost IGOOO. Miss Alice Cooper of
Colorado has been chosen as the
sculptor. The project is undoubt
edly .a commendable one. Tt is
about the only way the present
generation can pay a fitting tribute
to a heroine who figured so con
sniciously in early Western history
and performed services to the
country of incalculable value, ine
association ought to ha7e no
trouble in raiking funds.

Rat Had Delirium Tremens.
It is related tnat a oanuac coun
ty (Mich.) farmer who had been
missing apples from his cellar
made a startling discovery of the
thief the other day. While crawl
ing under the barn after a hen's
neet containing a fortune of eggs
the farmer came on a small pool of
liquid, beside which lay the dead
body .of a large rat. On investiga
tion the farmer discovered that the
pool contained the missing apples.
The rat, it was found, had died of
acute alcoholism. After stealing
the apples the rat had dropped
them in the spring under the barn.
As they decomposed they formed
strong cider. The rat drank the
cider and died, so it is alleged, of
