Senator Fairbanks and Doiliv
er spoke to an audience of nearly
5,000 people in the armory at
Portland Saturday night. The
enthusiasm with which they
were greeted is a pretty good in
dication of Low the vote for
president will go next month.
Mr. Fairbanks is not the . kind
of a speaker that sways an au
dience with eloquence. He
deals in facts and his speech is
ready for print without cor-
rectiou just as delivered, lie
tells no stories. That acontinua
tiou of the policis of the pres
ent administration is for the
best interests of the ' American
people, is his conviction and
his hearers are made to realize
it. The tariff, "imperialism"
the Pauama canal as presented
by Mr. Fairbanks, received . ap
plause that indicated beyond
preadventare of doubt that the
masses approve of tho Repub
lican party on these questions.
Mr. Dolliver entertained Satur
day nights crowd a short while,
but he appeared under the dis
advantage of a husky voice and
sore throat, Mr. Dolliver, as
said by Senator Mitchell, is one
of the ablest political debaters
in the Republican party and he
commands large audiences
wherever he goes. Obliged to
rest from speaking a few days,
he stopped off in Portland and
Senator C. W. Fulton took his
place as speaking mate for Mr.
Fairbanks. Senator Fulton, a
few years ago was a public school
teacher in Oregon.1 Later, his
attention was given to making
his way as a lawyer down at
Astoria. He has not had the
experience dealing with national
questions nor the advantage of
association with national men
that Senators Dolliver and Fair
banks have. He is only a new
senator, but he commands the
respect , of his colleagues in the
United States senate and it is a
testimonial to his ability, that
he was invited to fill the place
of Mr. Dolliver at the side of
Mr. Fairbanks. Together, they
speak in San Francisco and go
thence east to Denver. Senator
Dolliver put in Sunday viewing
the exposition grounds and
buildings and other scenic at
tractions at Portland and also
left for Denver to rejoin Senat
ors Fairbanks and Fulton.

C. A. Johns has been nomi
nated for muyor of Baker City
Referring to his selection the
Baker City Democrat says
"It was decided finally to
nominate Hon. C. A. Johns, one
of the leading attorneys of this
city for years, a taxpayer and
careful business man. At the
present juncture in the history
of Baker City a strong man is
needed for mayor to carry on
the work now well in hand by
the present administration, kand

rise during the rapid growth

two or' three years. Mr. .Jolins
seems to be the rieht man for
the place. He is a thoroughly
equipped lawyer, a gentleman of
good education, firm and has at
heart the true interests of Baker
City and all his fellow citizens
He .will make a splendid mayor."
