When the Oregon Development
League recently ankod the co-operation
of the etate in making a compre
henHive exhibit of the product of the
racifio northwest, heartiest assurance
of help came from every quarter, but
before definite arrangement could be
completed the trustee of the com
mercial club building were offered a
I five year' rental of $ 21,000 for the ex

that thoir plan will yet materialize.

Manufacturers in all parts oi tne
United States seem to be taking a new
interest in the investigation of con
ditions here in the northwest, and
especially is this true of the factory
which represents a modorate invest
ment. From every city of any size on the
coast delegates have come to Portland
to attend the session of the Pacific
Coast Ad Men's Association. It is
being held in tho convention hall of
the commercial club building, and
the association will enjoy a unique
dinner at the club to-night. Their
banquets are probably the most un
usual and interesting given by any
convention they have been compared
to similar affairs of the famous Grid
lron Club of Washington and since
the Portland Ad Men claim to have
the largest advertising club in Amer
ica, they are making spocial effort as

From the letter of inquiry concern
ing accommodation and the ecope
of work in the summer session Mr.
Traver say he i sanguine in the be
lief that the session beginning on
June 8th will xceed any previously
held. The work i o planned aa to
give result in Bpecial line and in this
wav a teacher can get any preparation
needed. When it ia remembered that
much of thi will be under such men
as President Ressler, Principal Traver,
Superintendent Churchill, of Baker
Citv. and Superintendent Cooper, of
Seattle, it is plain that no one need
ing any such work oan afford to miss
this opportunity. From their broad
experience and their executive force
these combine the practical with the
theoretical in a most effective way,
and it is hard to conceive how a
teacher could fail to get a benefit from
W. E. Smith, an alumni who
has been teaching the past winter at
Hubbard, is visiting at the normal.
Mr. Smith had a most successful
year's work and it is to his credit thot
he had the largest percentage of pu
pils muking the recent 8th grade ex
aminations of any teacher m Marion
Paul II. Wyman is taking his ex
aminations for his A. B. degree from
the University of Utah at Salt Lake,
here this week. By special arrange
ments the questions are sent to Mrs.
Pennell who conducts the examina
tions. Memorial exercises were held on
Friday in the assembly hall at the
state normal. Mr. Buckham gave a
most interesting talk replete with per
sonal recollections and experiences;
he was at that time teaching in the
state normal of Connecticut. Miss
Tuthill read some very appropriate
elections of prose and poetry, and
Mr.. Powell furnished the special mu
sic The exercises were greatly en
joyed by the entire school.
It is interesting to note that all the
candidates for graduation in June
have secured good positions for the
coming year, Mr. Traver informs us
that the demand for teachers who
ave had preparation is far greater
than it is possible to supply. It
goes without saying that the work of
the normal is being appreciated more
and more, for the common schools re
ceive a direct benefit: and these teach
er go to all sections of the state.

Election day passed off quietly in
Independence. The largest vote waa
polled Monday that wa ever cast in
the history of Polk county. There
were many reason why the people
took such an interest in voting at thi
time. Chief among these seemed to
be senatorial and local option contest.
The vote on the senatorial contest re
sulted in a majority of 49 in favor of
Chamberlain in Independence pre
cincts, and on local option the two
precincts went wet by the small ma
jority of 36. At tho election in Polk
county two years ago the county went
wet by a majority of an even '400 and
it is conceded that the county ha
gone dry at this election by not less
than 300 majority.
W. C. Hawley will win out by
about 400 majority over Whitney for
congress. R. S. Bean is , elected su
preme judge, Polk county giving him
almost 1400 majority over his oppo
nents. Bailey is elected food commis
sioner with a little less majority in
this county than that given Bean.
The result is still in doubt as to
who is chosen United States senator,
but it is believed . that Chamberlain
will win by a small majority. The
Portland Telegram of tho 2d says
that Chamberlain is in the lead by
140 votes. , In the event that the Tel
egram's count is correct there is rea
son to believe that Cake will win out
when the last votes are Counted. It
is safe to say that the precincts of
eastern Oregon which will be the last
heard from are mostly republican.
The election of Thos. K. Campbell
to the office of railroad commissioner
is conceded. J. H. McNary, district
attorney, B. F. Jones, joint represent
ative, and C. L. Hawley are also elect
ed without doubt. As near as can be
ascertained Coad has won the election
to the office of county judge over J.
E. Sibley by about 200 majority. J.
M. Grant slips back into the office of
sheriff with little opposition.
Smith appears to have been elected
to the office of county clerk. His
majority will be something near 300.
Ed Dunn will be elected treasure by
a majority of about 250. C. S. Graves
will be elected assessor by a majority
of 120 or so. Seymour will be chosen
county school superintendent by a
majority of approximately 250. Ueez
ley is re-elected surveyor. Chapman
had no opposition for coroner. Wm.
Kiddell will have a majority of more
than 600 for commissioner.
