THE REPUBLICAN R.ALLY.
Republican Cs.ndlde.tea Gave a
big Reception In Grants Ptxss
Lost Saturday marked the opening
of tho republican campaign In this rity,
it being tho occasion of the vitit of
W. J. Kurnith, republican candidate
for governor, and a number of other
diHtinguuthod politicians. Tha event
was a success In every particular; the
day wits clear and fine, and the streets
were crowded with people, many being
in from all parts of tho country to greet
the Pendleton man.
The campaign party, composed of
Hon. V. J. Furnish, nomluee for gov
ernor, J. II. Ackerman, nominee for
superintendent of publto instruction,
A. M. Crawford, nominee for attorney-
general, J. J. Whitnev, nominee for
state printer, and Hon. Chas. W. Ful
ton, arrived on the delayed morning
train from Med ford, nud were met at
the depot by tho republican central
committee and a number of enthusias
At two o'clock In tho aftornoon, the
Grants l'uss band appeared on the
street and discoursed a number of in
spiring airs while the crowd assembled
at the opera house for the speaking.
Standing room was at a premium In
tho hull. The meeting was presided
over by I'rof. w. II. Hampton. In
answer to a call, a number of leading
loettl republican politicians went for
ward and took seats on the platform,
W. J. Furnish was the first speaker
introduced and tho appluuse was loud
and long as he took the stand. Mr.
Furnish stated that he was a plain,
everyday business man. Ills work in
the past has been that of an executive
and not a political character. Hu said
that he believed the state of Oregon to
be a great business institution in which
every voter is a partner and In which
man shares, bis just portion, lie be
lieves the voters of the state aro desir
ous of electing a man for governor who
will make a thorough business mana
ger. Mr. Furnish said that if he were
elected governor, and he felt confident
that be would be, he would make his
home lu Salem and devote all of his
time and his best judgment toward
managing the affairs of the state. Mr.
Furnish heartily endorses tho national
republican platform and will do all
in his powor to advance the In
Wrests It represents. Mr. Furnish also
reviewed tho labor question and tpoke
in favor of pensioning the Indian War
Veterans. He heartily endorsed the
administration of tho lute President
HcKinU y and also that of Theodore
Superintendent J. II. Ackerman was
wit Introduced and spoke of the pub
lie school system. He mudo a pointed
and well directed protest against the
action of his opponent In making a plea
for only reading, aM'lliiig, writing, and
arithmetic in the public school course
of study. The superintendent said that
ho had not added to the school work;
he had reduced it. He said that his
opponent, like too many other people
in this world, wants to take their
children through the schools on flowery

He believes In holding up hard work
to the pupils as a noble and necessary
virtue and he will continue to do so as
long at he is superintendent.
Hon. A. M. Crawford, of Roseburg,
made a brief address, touching on the
initiative and referendum and the
Philippine question. He said that the
Filipinos were pnjoying greater liber
ties, and the Philippine Islands are in
much better condition today, under
American rule than they have ever
been before, and he could see no good
reason for releasing them.
Chas W. Fulton, the "tall pine of
the Columbia," was the principal
speaker of the afternoon. The address
of Mr. Fulton was eloquent throughout
and was frequently interrupted by ap
plause. He defended the action of Mr.
Furnish in leaving the democratic
ranks In 1896, and summed up the
record of the republican party for the
lust 42 years.

Southern Oregon Coal.
An Important event in the future de
velopment of Southern Oregon transpired
at the coal mint five miles att of Med
ford, latt Friday, when lbs protectors
opened a vein of coal of large dimensions
and uf Arat-clasi quality.
The Southern Pacific Company hat
been prospecting in thit district for seve
ral months, and itt efforts were reward
ed by the ttrike of latt week. There is
a tunnel running into the mountain a
distance of 1500 feet, and the miners are
now taking out coal that la suitable for
almost all purpose!. The light machine
ry that ii now used for prospecting will
be replaced by heavy mining machinery
and txtentive developments will be com
menced at once.
The coal that is being taken from the
vein ii almost solid, with the exception
of a email stratum of fire clay, which
will form the only drawback, to its use
.'or locomolivet. Tue tunnel rum on a
lii-foot vein, and is directly over a five
foot vein of the t ime quality of coal,
making II feet of tolid coal which, when
fully developed, will form an almost in
exhaustible tupply fur the company's
use. The coal is being uted in thS en
gine! at the mine, and the firemen re
port it tatisfaciory for stationary engine
work. In case the coal provet of tulll
ciently good quality for commercial pur
poses, no time will be lost in putting it
on the market.

The upheaval In the house of repre
sentatives produced by tho over ruling
of the chairman in tho committee of
tho wholo whon the Cubun reciprocity
bill was under consideration apiiears to
have had a most salutary efTcct in that
it has greatly expedited the trunca
tion of routine business and, while none
of tho great questions lioforo congress
has been considered In tho house dur
ing tho past week, a large amount of
regular business hus been disposed of.
On Tuesday tho military academy ap
propriation bill wu! passed. This
makes tho twelfth appropriation bill
passed by the house this session, two of
them havlug been urgent deficiency
bills, and leaves but three more regu
lar appropriation bills, ono of them the
agricultural bill now under considera
tion, to bo acted upon. The two re
maining aro the District of Columbia
bill and the naval bill. On Friday tho
pension calender was taken up and was
cleared with the passage of H5 bills.
The naval appropriation bill which
carries a total appropriation of f 76,
000,000, $2,000,000 less than last year
la practically ready to lie reported and
will be brought in at an early date.
Tho district of Columbia bill Is being
framed und will lie reported in tho near
future. As soon us tho regular ap
propriation bills aro ull paused the
representatives will begin to talk of
adjournment und strong prcssuro will
be brought on the lonuto to hasten Its
delllieratiotis to facilitate that end. On
Saturday Representative Mercer, of
Nebraska, reported the Omnibus pub
lic building bill which carries a total
appropriation of $1.1,900,000 und pro
vides for public Improvements of more
or lots cxtcmilro character in all but
two states in the Union. Toduy the
committee on rules will submit a special
rule for its consideration and It Is not
expocted that mora than a few hours
will be required fur Its pusxugo. But
nine appropriation bills have thus far
passed In the senate.
Tho week In tho senate has been
practically devoted to consideration of
the Philippine civil government bill
and Senators Rawlins and Carmack
have presented oxhuustive expositions
of the democratic position in regard
to the measure. In accordance with
the expressed wish of Senator Lodgo,
the republicans huvu so fur refrained
from replying to democratic charges.
Several important conferences have
been huld by the republican senators
and it has been determined to make an
investigation of tho holdings of the
sugur trust of Cubun sugnr, in accor
dance with the resolution Introduced
by Senator Teller. There is now little
doubt but that the senate committee
on relations with Cuba will report

Whllo the attorney general hits an

Mr. nichurdi, a member of tho dele
gation, stilted before a subcommittee
of the committee on publlo lands, on
Friday that there were but thlrty
milliun cattle In the United 8tutos in
cluding milch eows and that, wore
thi-so duditctod from tho total, there
would not bo left ono third of a carca
for every man, woman and child in

gation Is to socuru tho enactment of
some law, in- accordance with the
rocoiiitueudntlous of the secretary of
agriculture, whereby tho ranchmon
will be permitted to rent tha public
lands mid fence thorn for pasture for
their herds. Mr. Kliibards pointed out
that of tho sixty million acres uf public
lands only ten per cent was susceptible
of Irrigation but that of the remaining
ninety per cent much would be avail
uble for pusturo purpose if the gov-
rnmont would permit its fencing and
use at a f.iir rental.
