JAMES W, VIRTUE IS DEAD
Represented Josephine County
In Legislature of IS97.
Hon. J. V. Virtuo died at his Port
land residence, Friday evening at 5
o'clock. Ho was born in the Conuty
of Permauah, Ireland, Juno 24, 18S7;
came to Ontario, Canada, when a
youth, and went to Omaha, Neb., iu
1W,. In(lStm he went to Auburn,
Baker county, which was at that
time the county Bent. Baker county
was organized iu 18ti2, aud the gover
nor appointed the, oouuty officials to
servo until tho regular election of
lSfit, v.lieti Mr. Virtue wag elected
sheriff, a position he filled for six
years with credit to himself and tho
satisfaction of the people. Before
tho expiration of his term as sheriff,
the county seat removed to Baker
City. At tho expiration of his public
services, he engaged in mining aud
hanking, and for several years was the
leading spirit iu all enterprises tend
ing to develop the mining interests
of that section, as well as the agri
cultural and stock industries. There
was no enterprise calculated to ad
vance tho interest of that section
that (lid not receive his earnest moral
and financial suport, mid uo man
contributed moro to the development
of Oregon milling interests than he
did. Baker City owes iu a great
measure her present position aa tho,
Denver oi Oregon, to his enterprise.
Tho famous "Virtue" mine was once
his projierty and it was his money
that opened its treasury of wealth.
About, eight years ago, he moved to
Lolund, Josephine county, where he
engaged in opcuiug some valuable
mining property, and about a year
ago moved to Portland.
In IS!), ho represented Josephine
County iu the lower house of the
Legislature, and niude a good work
ing member of that body. The state
is much indebted to Mr. Virtue for
tho iKisitiou it uow holds as ft milling
section, for uo man worked harder
and invested moro liberally than lie
and encnurugo others in this enter
prise. Ho was regarded as the best
authority in the Northwest ou all
mining matters. Mr. Virtuo was
prominent iu political mutters and
always took great interest iu rty
affairs, not, however, for (mrsoual
gain, but for his friends, who alwu)s
(ouud in li i 111 a man of tho highest
typo of honor uud sincerity. These
qualities endeared him to a host of
warm friends throughout tho state.

Mr. linker has leased his laundry in

tho best boys that ever planted foot

kinds of business. He is working 1,1
people and pays $100 a month rent for
the establishment. It requires a good
business to do that. Mr. Baker was
in Medford llguriug with parties with
tho intention of putting In a lirst
class laundry plant here. If he is
successful in securing the property he
wants, he will do this. His plant,
complete, has already been purchased
to be put iu hero or at some other
IHiiut. This is unquestionably the
best laundry field there is in all
Oreg 'ti, and if Mr. Baker does not got

that purpose within the next few
weeks. Mr. Baker is a good lundry

A Fertlnant Inquiry.
Do you know that for a ilttle more
than it costs to take your family to
the theatre once, you can have a
Graphophone. which is equal to a
dozen theatrical performances rolled
into one, for with it you can repro
duce all the songs, speeches and
musical selections that you wish to
hear? Yoo get a combination of au
orchestra, theatre, concert and no end
of novel and delightful entertain
ments. Nothing is truer than the asser
tion that the Graphophone entertain
ev rybody every where. Those who
are not familiar with this wonder
ful instrument have much to learn
that will add to their pleasure.

Held ev Session Last Week in

Order of Prevaricators held a social
sessiou one day this week. Tho au
dience was-regaled with some marvel

turned on dog stories. One member
had known a shepherd dog to bay a
wounded deer for three days, nud
when found, tho dog had worn a path
iu the earth around the deer so deep
that his (the dog's) back wu) Just
visible. Another had had a dog
which rail a bear into a cave iu the
early fall, and wheu tho owner acci
dentally stumbled upon the pair in
the spring, the bear aud dog had set

to noso. After n few recitatives of
truthful occurrences, among them
being 0110 of a Dakota fox, that had
climbed a wheat stalk, aud thus es
caped from tho hounds, tho uew
member told of a greyhound he had
01100 owned. The dog was Iu full
career, chasing a wounded deer, aud
was almost ready to catch his quarry,
when the deer niiidu a sudden turn
around a big fir tree. Tho'dog In
stinctively turned with tho deer, but
did not notice tho treo, and struck it
fairly in the center. So great wus his
speed that he telesco)M'd himself
against that treo and from being a
long, lank greyhound, became a
hound of phenomenal shaic, being
nearly three feet high and only 12
inches long, and was never any good
for speed afterward. Tho members
of tho club, by mutual assent, ad
journed after this story, and u niche

Bishop Wurruu tolls how ho was lod
to Chlrst by an earnest schoolmate:
When I wus 17 yurs old I was sent
away from homo to school. The
Christian students apportioned out
tho non-Christ lun students among
themselves for personal effort to bring
them to Christ. I wus assigned to
Joseph 11. Mansfield, uow of tho
New Knglatid Conference. How
well I remember the pleasant uutm'nn
afternoon walk 011 the hills of Wil
hrahani. I perfectly kunw my duty
aud even my inclination, but needed a
warm, loving urging to go forward.
This I found In tho good brother,
mentioned above. I soon camu into
tho blessed cilcrionco of receiving
power to become a Hon of God and a
partaker of the divine nature."
