John W. Kern the democratic nomi
nee fur vice-president, like the re
publican candidate for tbe name place,
had not boon mentioned for the office
prior to tbe contention and the nomi
nation uaa ai much a surprise to each
as to the public.
It has' been given ont that all the
papers of New York City except the
Slatt Zeitung will oppose W. J
Brvan In 'the coining campaign. Its
barely possible, however, that W. J. is
m moon elated over this opposition as
are the bel liferents.
John Worth Kern, the democratic
candidate for vice-president, was born
December 20, 1840, at Alto, Howard
county, Indiana. When be was five
years old his parents moved to Iowa
whore they resided till 1W.4 when they
returned to Indiana. Mr. Kera then
attended the distrlot school and the
Indiaoa Normal and in IBM graduated
from the law department of the
Michigan University at Ann Arbor.
He has been elected to the legislature
and was leader of bis party in the
State annate. In 1000 Kern was nomi
nated for governor of Indiaua bnt was
defeated. Mrs. Kern is prominent in
literary and social circle a They have
oae daughter. Miss Julia and two
suns, Johu W. Kern, Jr. and Wm
Good Roads Meeting at Portland.
In respose to the almost onlversal
sentiment in favor of better public
highways throughout the west and
particularly in the states of Oregon, a
Good Roads conference has beeu
called for Tuesday, August lltb, at
Portland, at which time an interest
lug program will be presented. Tbe
management announces that this pro
gram will not consist of long-winded
speeches. Practical questions, per
tlnent to this good roads agitation,
wllllbs discussed by practical men.
While antomobilista are among the
leaders in this enterprise its purpose is
none the leas of vital interest to the
farmer, the fruit grower, the luuilier
and mining industries of the whole
state, aud therefore merits tbe sup
port and.consideratlon of alt these in
dustriea. Unanimity of action in this
direction on the part of the various
interests Involved - will result in ma
terial benefit to all.

Letter From Dr. Findley.
London, England, June 26, 1908.
The ocean voyage across the At
lantlc was a very pleasant one indeed.
Tbe weather was perfect and conse
quently a quiet sea. I came in the
shiD Corooia of the Canard line and a
delightful and commodious vessel it i
was. Upon landing I spent one day
in Liverpool and found the day quite
as much time as I cared to spend there,
as Liverpool jis a very (moky, dingy
looking city, not as desirable iu ap
pearance as the average city of its
size in America. Early the following
morning I went by a London express
train to London. The cars and engiue
are so small that the train looked not
unlike the American street cars.
When I first looked at it. it reminded
nieof my boys toy train. I found
them much more commodious than
they looked and made very good time
running from Liverpool to London in
about fonr hours. The country be
tween looked not as thickly populated
as eastern states in our own country.
Reaching London at noon, I was
driven directly to the long famed
Moorfields or Royal London opthalmio
hospital where I found the deirtd
work. There are more eye patients
in a day; than any other hospi-;
tal in the world. There are from five
to icveu hundred eye patients day
Including must every koown disease.
The work is most desirably arranged
so that the time is spent with the
most Interesting cases that are need
ing treatment, operation or glarsses.
Of course I can only work in one de
partment at a time but the work is
so arranged that I can work in any
departmeut at any time I desire, so
that most important work .can be se
lected. My forenoons are given to
this work and the afternoons aud a
part of the evenings to the ear, nose
and throaCin the Royal Central ear,
nose and throat hospital which is the
lirgest of its kind in London and
where work is very satisfactory. An
average of 80 operations aud (100
treatments is claimed for.htis institu
tion. I find a greater variety of
cases and work more satisfactory
than in X. Y., Chicago or Kansas
City. I devote five aud a halt days
of each week to work aud the remain
ing time for recuperation and seeing
the many interesting sights of Lon
don. The first Sunday in Loudon I attend
ed church services in tbe Westminster
Abbey, one of tbe most historio build
lugs known. It is a beautiful struct
ure of Gothio architecture beyond my
power to discribe. In it has been
crowned every king of Englaud since
Harold and there ha lies buried. There
are also almost innumerable of tbe
historic men here buriel, among them
are Sigbest, Klug of the East Saxons,
Mary, Queen of Sootts and Queen
Elizabeth, who oondemued Mary to
the beheading block. Edward the con
foHSor lu the chapel dedicated to his
memory aud in which are kept the
Scottitih aud English coronation chairs
and the sword and shield of Edward
Facing the Westminster Abbey and
maguifioeutly seated beside the river
Thames are tbe houses of Parliament.
This also is a most wasiilve and
twHutiful Oothio structure, covering
eight acres of space. Iu It Is con
ducted all the legislative bualnrsa of
the British Empire. It is composed
of 1 1 courts aud contains KMX) apart
At one end of the building is the
clock tower aud the other the Victoria
tower iu which is tbe bell known as
Big Ben, " which weighs IS tons.
American visitors are admitted by
making previous arraugemeut to both
the house of Lords and the house of
Common. The museums aud parks
aud other points of interest I may
write you of later.
The people of Eugland are disappoiut-
iug to most visitors from our lair
land. The wealth is in tbe possession
of the few and the masses are distress
ingly poor. It is not auythiug mi
usual diirlng a 10 uiiuotee walk to
have six or eight persona old wouie'i
or meu earn with breath foul with
intoxicant drinks or poorly csred for
children ask for "only a haffus"
half penny. One evening laat week as
I was returning from an evening clinic
was asked for "only hafens" by six
or eight children who looked very des
titute some were making drawings
ou the walk and asking the passers By
to look at the drawings and then give
them a hafens Just as they had seen
the numerous lame persons do-and
with iu a block of this scene of pivor-
tv I saw a greater number or meu and
women drinking aud some drunken as
passed the open saloon doors. Per
haps in some cases parents of the little '
beggars above referred to. These I
scenes mitae me even more happy over
the fact that all Southern Oregou has i
gone dry. j
We arehavliig uice ami mostly cool
weather here iu Englaud.
Yours as ever,
