The llillsboro Republican Club
will hold its opening meeting next

meeting of the campaign after the
election of its officers. It looks now
as though our favorite, Hon. T. It.

busy that no opportunity for him to
address the club will present after the
convention. This being the condi

dress the meeting next Tuesday.
After some hesitation he has consent
ed to do so. On this occasion the
club will put forth on extra effort fur
a good meeting. Music, both vocal
and instrumental, is to lie a feature,
though, of course, Mr. Tongue's ad
dress will be of greatest interest. The

Deputy Fish anil Game Protector
Bagley, assisted by Deputy Sherill'
Burke Ttfngue, have made several
arrests of trout fishers I he past week.
On Monday, young Scheilfclin was
caught with trout in his possession
and fined t-0. This he paid, and
will fish no more till after April 1st,
at which dato the close season ends.
Later, Wesley (Jarrison was arrested,
charged w ith a like offense taking
trout out of season. He stood a trial
before Justice Knight and a jury.
Most of the day was consumed in
listening to testimony and the argu
ment of counsel. The case attracted
much attention. One thing is true
if the law Is a" go.nl one it ought to
be enforced; if it is not, then it
should lie repealed eitizenB ought to
olay the law as long as it is in the
code, anil not experiment to see how
near they can come to breaking it
and still get clear. It may become
necessary to adopt Dinghy's plan -kill
all the fish in the Tualatin and
its branches. In this case, the jury
promptly acquitted the defendant,
because the state could not prove
that he had trout In his possession,
lie had thrown them in the creek.
Another $-'0 of the taxpayers money
has been blown In on costs. Repeal
the law and let the fish Ik? killed.

"An oldest lnhabilant,"a few days
ago, told 01 tne organization 01 me
republican party in tins county, in
lhoS. Fremont had made me race
for president in 1s."(f., and had re-
reived votes, but they were stutter
ing, and our"tir-t Inhabitant" thinks
that the first republican ticket nomi
nated in the state was tliaf of Wash-
In 1S"8 there was really but one
party, the democratic, dominated by
A. Bush, of Silcm. The organization
was governed and controlled hy what
was familiar to every politician in the
territory the "Salem clique." There
was opposition, to be sure, assuming
the name of national democracy, but
it was not thoroughly organ! red, and
bad no recogntee.1 leader. The
know-nothing party, In Washington
county, failed, and it wa sought to
organise active nppoaltinn to the
Salem democracy. To effect this, a
call was made fur a mass meeting of
citizen, to advise, one with the other,
coiiivrning the placing of a ticket In
the field county offi.ir. A county
denioWatlc convention, to select
itrlecate to the territorial ronven
the annie dav. In the'
lion, was held
court hou. The only other house
of a nubile character In the village!
was the district wuool house, which
.i i . .i:,i..nifUi.i,rilutr,
then stood some distance east of Peter
Boscow's residence, and to the souin
of Main street. There the opponents
of the regular democracy assemble.!
It was a mass meeting, and pniiti
dans of greater or b proiuinem-e
attended. Goshey, or liosey, aril
Bennett, from Columbia couuty,
came. Dr. McBride, w ho had s ime
aspirations for state honors, was here
from Yamhill county. More from
the county were Hon. T. K Corne.
lius, W. D. Hare, Isaac M. Evans, K
L. Whitcomb and S. Whi'diuh, hi
brother; W. II. Bennett, 11. E. Wiley,
the Cald wells and many others who-e
uamcs are not now recalled. Law
rence I lall was chairman. Hare was
then a young man. Multnomah
county had only a few months before
been set off from Washington, and
Mr. Hare was hire 'copying the
records for the archives of the new
couuty. The first thing that engaged
the convention was to sekct a name.
One iirorstsed National Democracy,
but the old Whigs could not enduie
the name, and put it from them.
There were those prtseiit who loved
the loaves ami fishes. They proposed
Citizens' or People's ticket; another
faint voice said Republican ticket.
"No! No!! No!!! People will call us
W.sily Coats, Abolitionists, Nigger
Stealers. We can't stand that," and
much more to the same tll'ect was
said. Haru had not said anything
yet. lie had sat mutt as a mouse.
But he had been reading congression
al debates, and knew something of
the aims and objects of the new
parly. The uooly coat epithet
aroused him. He got the Hi sir and
firmly and emplutticully said:
"Wooly coats, or no wooly coats, the
time has come and now is, when we
must take a stand on these matters."
From the first, he had the crowd
with him. The house was a jam, for
the democratic convention had com-
pleted its work and had gone over to
see tr.e run. lne longer ne simikc
the more enthusiasm was amused.
Joe Meek was there, and, after one
particularly telling sentence, he
jumped up and called out : "If ever
gosK'l truth was said, this is it."
Hare's speech carried the motion to
call a county convention to nominate
a republican ticket. Gosey and Ilen
nett bolted. McBridt -hook his head.
Bill Bennett and Dr. Wilcox, of this
county, stayed, but feared a mistake
had been made Theconvention was
held. Dr. Wilson Bowl by was nom
inated for the legislature, and was
elected by two or three majority. W.
D. Hare was nominated (or county
clerk, and was elected by sixty-four
or sixty-five majority. Dr. Bowlby
was, thert-rore, the first anil tor a
time the only republican In the legis
lature. From that day to this the
Republican party has always la-en in
the majority in this county, though
the opposition has occasionally got a
man by hook or by crook.
