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 ator.

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 last moment. 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.

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.

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.
