Just now there appears to be little
doubt but that it is Senator Cake for
Oregon. Once the campaign started
it was speedily seen that the oft-boast
ed personal popularity of George the
governor was not so almighty stout as
was once. Various things that
some (oiks nave known aooui our
chief executive have come to light,
and a lot of folks are today "doubtful
if George was such a . whale of a man
after all. ' 1 : : ' ' .
The nearer Oregon makes it unan
imous for Cake the better for Oregon.
Thr are a few nlaces where party.
politics still count; they don't usually
in city, county and district affairs;
but they do in national affairs,
especially in the ' upper, house of con
gress where the majority party gets
what it wants and the minority sits
tight and waits. Oregon wants a-lot
of things from congress; it can never
get them i through a democratic sen

BODY RECOVERED TOO LATE
Sad Drowning ol Jesse Staf
fer Who Dies While
Palem, Sunday May 24 Yesterday
morning at 11:20 Jesse C. Shaffer o
Portland, was drowned In the Willa
tnittto river at this place, and h
comDanion. Miss Ollie Drummond
the seventeen year old daughter of
M. Drummond. who resides on
Front street near the Cottage hotel
was saved from a like fate just at tht
The two had been out in the Clifford
Glover gasoline launch and after
ride of about an hour drew up at the
boat house of the Spaulding Loggin
company, and landing there attempted
to make the shore over the logs in
the mill company's boom. They had
gone lees than half way when both of
them slipped from a turning log, and
clinging to each other, slid into the
water. He raised a cry for help, and
fishing party composed of Sam
Minnerd. Henry Folkes and Lloyd
Gantenbein saw them balancing on
tha trMr.heroua loes. beaded for their
assistance. "OXJ. Davy and Geo.Gardner
saw them from the scow Julius,
anchored at the shore about twenty
rods south of the scene of the accident
They hurried io the boom and Mr.
Davy springing over the logs, plunged
into the stream near where the two
were wildlv fiehting for their lives.
The men in the boat, however,
reached the spot first, Mr. Folkes
catching the girl just as she was
sinking for the last time and pulled
her into the boat. -"They noticed
bubbles 6n the surface of the water
few feet away and knew her partner
had sunk. Neither party of the res
cuers could see anytning or-jut.
Shaffer as they neared the floundering
form pi the girl, and in her statement
she says he certainly helped to sup
iport her above the surface,- and even
iiA it was she seemed to be under
water most of the time.
When taken, into the boat Miss
Drummbrid" : was unconscious . and
hey .liiiiniediately began restoration
with ' the result that when the boat
reached 'the shore tho young lady had
regained consciousness and was able
'... waUK, She was immediately ac
.eonjpanied,to. her home. :"I had no
though VI. she said; "blit that we could
walk safely over the logs. Mr. Schaf
fer suggested nothing1 that made me
think it 'Was dangerous, but when
they begttn'to rolld told him I could
not'stand up on these things and just
then' we both went in." it . ;
The girl was saved and the rescuers
felt glad they had been successful i
at least doing this much. There was
no hope of saving the young man, as
he had gone down- in sixteen feet of
water. However a dSzen men began
at once the work of trying to recover
the' body, using grab hooks, poles and
dragnets. It' was rather slow work
among the logs. . A large crowd had
gathered, when at 2:40, nearly three
hours and a half after going down,
he was brought to the surface in the
net drawn by D. W. Gibson. The
remains were' taken to the Clbugh
undertaking parlors. ' '
' Jesse C." Shaffer was employed as
chauffeur for Fred S. Stewart, former
ly of Salem but now of Portland. . He
was evidently a good reliable man as
he has been in charge of the same' car
for the past nine months. His moth
er and younger brother reside near
Portland and it is said he has seen
fargely to their support. While here
he has made a number of. friends
anmiig the yottng 4'le and was in
fact quite a favorite, (e w jut j
patt eighteen yrr old and a fins
tyje of young mauhood.
His employer, who had gone to'
Portland and Heattle Ul WfxInm.Uv,
ae notified at oikm and through him
word was Mutt to the molhrr.
There was one circum.tance in con-
paction with the 4 ending of the
young man' life that reflects some
what on his good judgment in risking
the life of his companion as well a
himtlf io the manner that he did.

Cuudldate for Legislature-
I hereby announce my candidacy
for the office of representative of Polk
oounty in the legislature on the re
publican ticket. C. L. HAWLEY.
An overwhelming majority of Ore
gon's voters by registration have for
mally declared that they believe in
the principles of the Republican
Party. Let them now show
that they are honest by voting in
accordance with their declarations.
The Oregqn election comes before the
Republican National Convention
Let every Republican voter in the
first congressional district uphold the
honor of the Republican Party in Ore
gon and strengthen the influence of
Oregon's delegation in the National
Convention by voting for H. M. Cake
for United States Senator and W. C.
Hawley for Representative in Congress
If either of these Republican nominees
fail of election, , the primary election
system will be discredited and a re
turn of boss rule will be invited. The
good name of dregdn's voters will be
placed in a humiliating position.
For the effect it will have on the No
vember election it is '- imperative that
all the Republican nominees in the
June election shall de elected by an
overwhelming majerityi- -As a believ
er in the principles.! the- Republican
Party, it is your, duty. to be at the,
polls June 1st and to vote for Cake
and Haw ley,. . , , . .t .. ,.

BOPS ABE BACKWARD.
There has not been a time in a
good many years, says an Indepen
dence grower, when hops were as
backward-as they are at this time.
The majority of the growers have laid
off their trainers because "the hops are
not high enough to train. . It is due
to the exceptionally cold weather
which has prevailed during the entire
spring season. There was not a single
trainer in many of the hop yards durT
ing the past week. . . . -
