Charley Soars and wife of Buekhorn
were over to tow n Monday. It was the

he was naturally much elated over it. So

a breathing fpell between ceremonies.
The Inland Republican, published at
Athena for the last five years by D. A.

At the little town of Grant, Sherman
county, there ore only six buildings re
maining since the flood. The water
washed through the town, and the citi
zens were forced to the hillside and to
live In tents. Twenty-two buildings
were carried away by the flood. The
machinery of the distillery was all saved
except the worm and vat.
J. H. Downing returned homo Satur
day from Portland, where he went as a
delegate to the Grand Lodge A. F. & A.
M. He says a portion of Portland was
pretty well inundated by the flood, and
that several large fish were caught in
Ladd's bank, and that it was a common
amusement for the ladies to fish in the
streota from the sidewalks.
There are no handicaps to Bro. Shutt,
of the Globe, when it comes to running
for office. He was elected justice of
Condon precinct by a majority of 24 over
his republican competitor, notwithstand
ing the precinct was 24 republican. A
man who can gather in votes that way
is indeed a runner. Let's trot him out
for congress iu 'WJ. Ochoco Review.

hot cakes, at 10c a pound. They are a

Alex Hardie went to Arlington this
week expressly to find out how soon it
will be possible to ship wool East from
that place. He is raliabiy informed that
trains will be running East from Arling
ton within two weeks from now, which
is indeed welcome news to thousands of
people in this portion of the country.
The road west of Arlington is damaged
more, and it will probably be three

Geo. C, Sears, republican, of Portland,
evidently is a hard man to "down" at
an election. Two years ago he ran for
assessor of Multnomah county as an in
dependent candidate and won by a largo
majority. The "machine" politicians
knocked him out again for the nomina
tion for sheriff at the primaries for the
late election, and he ran independently
again, and beat the regular republican
opponent by a majority . of 1305 votes
out of about 10,000. He has many friends
in Gilliam county who are glad to leurn
of his success.
Tacoma Union: The champion girl
of the period lives out on the Muck.
From April 1st to Juno 1st this year she
planted three acres of potatoes, did all
the cooking and sewing for the family,
milked four cows, fed the calves, pigs
and chickens, Bhot three chicken hawks
and a wildcat, set the dog on eighteen
tramps, attended thirteen dances and
tbreo picnics, rend five dime novels and
sat op four nights in the week with her
beau, sewed scores of democratic badges
on her brothers' pants, and yet we often
hear the question asked, "What is there
for women to do?"
Some people are as full of conceit as
an egg is of meat. Judging from the
tone of tho Arlington paper, one would
suppose that the large republican gains
throughout Oregon at the late election
is duo to our friend Johns' powerful
influence in supporting that ticket. At
the Novomber election two years ago the
7th district allowed a republican major
ity ot almost lUUU votes, aim that la
about the majority it had at the late
election : so it is no surprise that the re
publican candidates for the 7th district
were elected by that majority. They
simply got thoir party vote, and could
not help hut win. Judging from the
largo republican gains all over the state,
it would not he surprising had the 7th
district gone 2000 republican majority at

menced on some of the ranches. J.
M. South was op from his river ranch
and says he has corn waist-high and
young potatoes already. He aays there
has been no frost down there. ' We had
some frost here, which bit the melon
vines; so we cannot feed the editors on
melons this year, but we can furnish all
the gooseberries that all the editorial
force can get away with.
We see in the last Journal a little
more "mud throwing." It holds Mr.
Anthony up as a much-abused man and
goes so far as to say the leaders and
prophet apostles of the populist party
failed to support him in the election,
and that his defeat kills the pop. party.
Now. Mr. Journal, how about the lead
ers of the republican party in Fossil, and
in fact, all over the comity on the vote
for sheriff? Do you predict the down
fall and death of the republican party
in this county because nearly 300 repub
licans did not vote for their candidate?
There is one thing that candidates must
learn ; V hen they start out to vilifying
their opponents, all honest voters regard
them with distrust. Mr. Anthony
"squealing" now only made people re
gard him with fear and diftrust. Why
did he not tell these things while he
was deputy or before thecampaign? As
to the leaders of the people's party or
prophets and apostles (as the Journal
persists in calling them) they are men
who believe in right and justice; who
give every man the right of free speech ;
the right to think and vote as they see
fit They are men who helped to open
up this country ; who helped to elect its
first ollicers; who are free-born Amari
can citizens, who think they are entitled
to jnst as many privileges as a natural
ized citizen genenally feels is due him.
I think it would be more becoming In
the Journal man to be more moderate
in his expressions; he would command
more respect from American-born citi
zens. L. J. W.

An exchange truthfully remarks:
"The mah with the most faults grieves
most and makes the biggest fuss at his
neighbor's one little shortcoming. Has
the reader ever noticed with what a
ravenous degree of satisfaction the com
mon gossip and scandalmonger gloats
over any little fault or mistake made by j
their superiors? They gulp and keep
on gulping it down with the avidity that
a hog gulps swill."
Friday night of last week a gambler,
C. II. Crawford, claimed to have been
robbed of $ 240 while asleep in the Jor
dan hotel at Arlington. Myron Hamil
ton of Fossil happened to be stopping at
the hotel the same night along with a
number of other guests, and Crawford
thinking that perhaps Myron knew
something about the robbery, next
morning had him arrested on suspicion
of having stolen bis money. At the pre
liminary examination before Justice Ebi
the state's evidence only was submitted.
Myron plead not guilty and waived his
right of making statement until circuit
court meets in September. Justice Ebi
bound him over to the grand jury with
bonds al$40Q, in default of which he
was remanded to the custody of the
