THE OFFICIAL PAPER OF GILLIAM
Governor Pennoyer is discount
ing Roswell Horr as a campaign
Btory teller. In his Bpeech at Al
bina the other night he took a
whack at the democratic party by
relating the following anecdote:
"There was a man who boasted
'that he owned a barrel 200 years
old. When he took a friend into
his cellar to show him the vener
able relic the friend suggested that
the hoops looked to be new. "Yes,
they are new. I only put them on
last year," said , the man. After
further inspection the friend sug
gested that the staves didn't have
a very antique appearance. 'That's
true,' responded the man, 'I put
them in about four years ago.' The
friend then wanted to know what
was left of the 200-year-old barrel.
"H 1, dont you see the bung
hole?" shouted the relic-owner.
The governor's application was
that the btmghole was all that
Cleveland had left of the party or
the old-time Jeffersonian principles.
An outfit of California emigrants
passed through town this afternoon
and are camped a short distance
below. They came from San Louis
Obispo county, about 200 miles
south of San Francisco, on the
coast, and report that California is
suffering from the worst drought
since 1S77. This gentleman was
running a dairy on a nine-hundred-acre
ranch, with forty milch cows
and other cattle and horses. He
left all behind to die except the
team to bring him away. He re
ports that stock of all kinds is dy
ing by thousands, and that many
of the people are on the road com
ing this way in search of a place to
sustain life, having absolutely been
forced to leave on account of
the unprecented drought.-t-Eugene
The following from the Sheridan
Sun is also applicable to this por
tion of Oregon: "Wheat farming
will grow gradually less from thiB
time on. Our lands can be more
profitably utilized than by raising
35-cent wheat. What we want in
the Willamette is the subdivision
of the large tracts into 5, 10 and 20
acre farms by men who understand
or are willing to learn small farm
ing. The secret of success in farm
ing is to have something to sell for
which there is a demand in its
season. The thing that will bring
these changes the quickest is the
simple division of the big farms
into small tracts, placing them into
industrious, prudent hands. Go
on dividing the country into small
Henry Watterson, the great Ken
tucky journalist, was recently in
Oregon, and when asked about our
state said: "I was surprised to
find so marked a difference between
California and Oregon, and which
is decidedly in Oregon's favor.
Particularly is this true of its cli
mate conditions. I am a lover of
perpetual verdure, and from the
time I approached the Oregon line
until 1 arrived here I found a con
tinuous vision of landscape beauty,
and I was impressed with the fact
that the fertility of the soil of Ore
gon surpasses even the pictures
queness of the scenery."

A country postmaster in Uma
tilla county. the other morning took
a blank sheet of paper and wrote
upon it the words, "For United
States Senator." Then making two
columns, at the head of one he
wrote, "Sylvester Pennoyer," and
at the head of the other, "Jos. N.
Dolph." During the day, as the
men came in for their mail, he re
ferred them to the paper and asked
them to sign their names under the
one desired for the position. 36
came before night fell, and the1 vote
stood thus: Pennoyer, 34; Dolph,
2. One of the two who voted for
Mr. Dolph said he would vote for
Pennoyer could he vpte directly for
him. East Oregonian.
Be Honest About It.
Condon, May 21.
"Voter" writing from Mayville (?)
last week to the Arlington paper wakes
the weakest argument I ever saw in his
flighty effort to prejudice the public
againat Wilcox. He makes himself ridic
nlous in his attempt to rob Mr. Wilcox
of the credit he so justly deserves for
not crowding the taxpayers at a time
like this when he could have rained
them almost by forcingcollection, which
he could have done, notwithstanding
"Voter's" ' malicious misrepresentation
of the facts in this matter. The voters
of this county will not be bulldozed by
any such bosh as that, and ought to, and
no doubt will, cause many honest repub
licans to vote for Mr. Wilcox.
Now in regard to Sheriff Wilcox not
forcing the collection of delinquent taxes
I am also reliably informed that it is
not necessary for the sheriff to file a list
of delinquents before he can proceed to
force collection. He could .have levied
on the personal property of every delin
quent taxpayer and added costs ever
since they became delinquent on April
2d. The warrants issued to the sheriff
after the delinquent list is turned over
authorizes him to levy on real estate as
well as personal property. The county
court deserves credit for not forcing the
sheriff to collect this; but the court has
not the power to change the Jaws of Ore
gon; and if Wilcox bad been so disposed
he could have put every delinquent tax
payer to expense since April zd, by lev
ying on personal property, and the coun
ty court could not have prevented him.
These are the facts in the matter.
