And now there comes flitting ath wart the mutable concave of the political azure, like the handwrit ing on the wall to those who have in cognamen been there before, the ambitious shadow of another Guber natorial possibility, which, his friends say, will grow and grow un til, Titanic in proportion, its being will asume a galaxy that will ec lipse the flickering luster of all the satellites that glimmer and darkle in the great vault of politics, says the Telegram. His title is County Judge and his name is Lionel Rich ard Webster, and his fame extends from the elevated railroad over Columbia Slough to the line of de- tnarkation between Oregon and Cal ifornia, aye, even through the un watered stretches where grain grows and sage brush flourishes among rockbreaks and fertile valleys of the Island Empire. His politics are such that he will suffer on revulsions of conscience when he casts his vote for T. Roosevelt, who lives in Wash ington. Already mention has been made of the aspirations and possible poli tical future in the Governorship of the Honorable Benj imin Paton Cor elius, resident of the Municip ality of Hillsboro and Mayer there of, and of Chas. A Johns, who practices law in the countyseat of Baker County, both of analagous faith in things political, and some there are who still these stand a good chance, but now there is anoth er contingency in the party, who believe that Lionel Richard Web ster will be nominated at the direct primaries, and that when this shall become an adjunct of political his tory, he will poll a vote that will reverse the Waterloo of things in re George Earle Chamberlin and the State Attorney-General conflict of 1892, when the latter was hired by the state as its lawyer and Lionel Richard Webster was not.

The career of Colonel Mitchell in land affairs ba« been long and re markable. After four or fiye years service as the official shorthand re porter of the famous Court of Com missioners of the Alabama Claims, the court which distributed the fifteen million dollars wrenched from England on account of the de predations of the Confederate cru- sier “Alabama,” Mr Mitchell be came private secretary to the sec retary of the interior, Carl Schurz. While in that capacity he was ap pointed special agent of the depart ment and with Gen. Williamson, then commissioner of the general land office made a tour of investi gation of the Pacifio coast, raising havoc amongst many wrong doers in land matters Being impressed with the country he decided to set tle in the Pacific Northwest, and was appointed chief clerk of the U. S. Land Office at Walla Walla While in that position, he was made Land Agent of the Oregon Improve ment company, that company hav ing purchased from the Northern Pacific a large tract of lands, com prising the major portion of what is now Eastern Washington. When he had completed the work of or ganization. Mr Villard offered him the position of chief clerk of the Northern Pacific Land department, and subsequently added the assis tant land commissionership of the Oregon and California land depart ment. These positions he filled when he accepted the position re cently vacated His services with the government land affairs covered six years, with the Oregon Improvement company and the Northern Pacific ten years and with the Valley and Cascades Mt. Wagon road company, IS years, in all a continuous and important connection with lands of nearly forty years. Is it any wonder he would want to rest? Each position required capacity above the ordina ry, and was permeated with temp tation and full of opportunity; still M. Mitchell is a poor man to day. He early made it a rule not to take advantage of his position and has stuck to it much to his credit but detrimental to his pocket book. The company parts with Mr. Mitchell most regretfully. The letter of acceptance of the resigna tion pays him a deserved tribute for his scrupulous care of the in terests of the company’s affairs.
