Bodine to Run Again for Sher
iff; Francis and Froman Not
Adverse to Another Term.
Representative Childs Said to
Be a Candidate; Lewelling
Not Seeking Election.
Continued fmm Friday, Feb. s
Linn county offices will not. go
begging in the year of our Lord 1914.
This much became certain when a
Democrat representative obtained a
line on actiye and deceptive candi
dates for keys to the various rooms
in the court house.
The following county officers were
interviewed and in answer to the
question, "Do you expect to become
a candidate for the nomination at the
next primary election?" answered as
Sheriff Bodine: Yes. I expect to
become a candidate for re-election. I
feel that the record I have made dur
ing the past two years has been such
as to entitle me to a second term but
will of course accept the verdict of
the public without question.
County Trcasiierr Francis: It is
my present intention to run again but
as yet I have no formal an
nouncement of my candidacy.
County Commissioner Russell: I
am not prepared to say as to whether
or not I will enter the race.
County Recorder Froman: It is
probable that I will be a candidate at
.the primary election but have not
definitely concluded to make the race.
County Surveyor Geddes: He
could not be located but his friends
assert that he will become a candi
date for re-election.
County Clerk Marks: I have ar
rived at no definite decision at this
time. I have been considering the
matter of entering the practice of law
and therefore am unable to give you
a definite answer.
.The Democrat made further in
quiries from friends of Mr, Marks in
regard to his plans and learned that
a large number of his advisors are
insisting that he abandon the idea of
entering the legal profession and ac
cept a renomination. Mr. Marks has
twice been nominated for county
clerk on both the Republican and
Democratic tickets and has made an
exceptionally capable official. He is
the only county clerk in Linn county
who has been made the choice of
both political parties.
It is understood that County Com
missioner Russell will have opposi
tion. T. M. Holt, of Thomas, will be
a candidate for the Republican nomi
nation and D. H. Pierce, of Harris
bur:,'' has under consideration the an
nouncement of his candidacy. The
latter stated 10 a Democrat represen
tative tli is morning that lie had not
definitely concluded to enter the race
but that his friends were urging him
to become a candidate.
State Representative ChiMs will be
a candidate for rc-elec :ion according
ti reliable information and it os more
than ;.;..bable that Homer Speer, the
well kn'.ivn Tangent merchant will
enter the race. State Representative
Lewelling stated 'hat. he had no inten
tion of becoming a candidate for re
election. He has also been mentioned
as a candidate for joint senator from
Linn and Lane counties but asserts
that he has no ambition along this
line. It is also reported that Rep
resentative Porter will not be a can

crat has been unable to confirm thejmencing at 8:i: o clock. 1 lie au

Entertained Jolly Entertainers
and Gave Them a Furs
of $21.
A good lunch, a lot of fine enter
tainment and a purse of $21, was re
ceived by the Jolly Entertainers, the
wonderful troup of children from the
Children's Home of Des Moines,
Wash., at the hands ol Albany's local
Elks last night.
After the performance at tjie Bligh
theater, the children repaired to the
Elks temple, at the invitation of the
Elks for some fun. They were accom
panied by the people of Albany who
look one or more of the children to
their homes for the two nights they
were here. In all, about 400 people
were present.
Arriving at the temple, 'the child
ren and their guardians were escorted
to the hall and there the festivities
began. First the Elks gave their en
tertainment which was a varied one
and which delighted the children.
Then the children entertained the
Elks with songs and skits, after which
they were dined and given a purse of
$21 collected among the Elks. Nev
er before, said a prominent. Elk this
afternoon, has he seen such genuine
pleasure at the Elks' club on the part
of both entertained and entertainer.
Prof. Draper, the big hearted leader
of the children, was nearly over
whelmed with gratitude to the Elks
and the children could have thanked
their hosts in no better way than by
showing the appreciation they did.

Woe Be to Miners and Dealers
for Infraction of the -State
Juvenile Officer Catlin Says
Giving Away Tobacos Is As
Grave a Crime.
That the crusade againt the sale of
tobacco of any description to boys
under the aye of IS years, has been
launched here and that it will be vig
orously pursued, was the statement
this morning of County Juvenile Of
ficer John Catlin.
"The school board recently passed
a resolution against such traffic and'
against the use of tobacco by min
ors,"' said the officer, "in upholding
the state law and as the juvenile of
ficer, it is my duty to prohibit any
infraction of the law. This I most
certainly intend to do whenever such
a case comes to my notice."
Dealers Are Notified.
Yesterday Officer Catlin went
around and notified each and every
tobacco dealer, from grocery store
proprietors to cigar store owners that
the state law would be rigidly en
forced. "We are aware of the fact that a
boy is liable to fib about his age,''
said the officer, "but I told cigar
dealers that if they are in the slight
est doubt about the boy's age, to turn
him down, as the sale of tobacco to
a boy under the age limit, is punish
able under any circumstances and the
fact that he gave his wrong age, does
not excuse anyone."
Giving Tobacco Is Crime.
That the grown-ups who give to
baccos to minors are just as liable
as the cigar dealers, was an emphatic
statement of the officer. "We can
get them under the same conditions
that we would get the dealers," he
That youngsters caught using to
bacco will be hailed before the prop
er authorities and that their parents
will be notified, is the intention of
Officer Catlin.
"With all of the dealers Warned
not to sell tobacco to miners," said
Catlin, "and other precautions in ef-,
feet against the smoking or using of
tobacco by youngsters, there should
be no reason for boys to use tobac
co and if they do I think that their
crime is nearly as bad as that of a
dealer who would sell the "weed" to
a youngster."
Crusades on Elsewhere.
That the tobacco habit among min
ors is assuming alarming proportions
is indicated by the crusades inaugur
ated throughout the state.
In Portland an epidemic of juvenile
crime, traceable largely to the cigar
rettc habit, has been causing the of
ficers of the juvenile court an im
mense amount of work the past few
The juvenile officers, who were in
strumental in bringing about the nuti-.s
meeting of parent s and teachers, at
the Public Library in Portland 11
day; ago. art anxious to have the
crusade against cigarettes carried fur
ther. The habit, they 'declare, is one
of the greatest incentives to thievery
which their investigations show. A
boy, who will not, steal under ordi
nary conditions1, is often impelled to
commit a burglary to get the cigar-
rcttes which he craves.
"Cheese it; cop!" was the warning
cry to numerous lads yesterday in
Salem to comrades who were smoking
cigarettes. The reason was that an
ordinance prohibiting the sale of to
bacco in any form to minors under
18 years of age became effective to
day. Xot only docs the ordinance
provide a penalty for selling tobacco
to minors, hut it makes it unlawful
for minors to use it or have it in
Drastic Ordinance.
The ordinance is drastic and the po
lice have been notified that it must
be enforced.
The law provides for the repri
manding by the recorder of a minor
for his first offense and for subsc-
qUcnt violations he shall be fined no,
e8$ tnan 2 nor more than $20, or i'm-
phoned for not less than one nor
more tnan Q days in jail.

Donald Pagut and Miss Hazel
Barta Stole March on
Many Friends.
Eugene, Or., Feb. 6 Donald Pague,
of Portland, and Miss Hazel llarta,
of Madison, Wis., juniors in the Uni
versity of Oregon, last night celebrat
ed the completion of their . mid-year
examinations by repairing to the Epis
copal church in this city and getting
'married. Today they went to Port
laud, where they will make their
Most of the members of the Delta
Gamma sorority and the Avava club,
with which the bride and bridegroom,
respectively, are affiliated, were not
aware that the wedding was to take
place. Half a dozen friends of the
couple, who were sworn to secrecy,
led the ceremony.
Afterward the newly married pair
took dinner together and then Mr.
Pague escorted his bride to the Delta
Gamma house and himself returned to
the Avava house to break the news
to his fraternity brothers. The couple
left this morning before the campus
had awakened to the fact that another
college romance had reached a hap
py result.
The bridegroom is a son 13. S.
Pague, an attorney of Portland, and
graduated from Hill Military Acad
emy. Miss Barta, although she came
from Wisconsin to enter the univer
sity, has since made her home with
relatives near Albany. Both young
people have been prominent in stu
dent activities here, Mr. Pague having
been a member of the second football
team and Miss Barta of the dramatic
Lebanon, Or., Feb. 6. The police,
a deputy sheriff and constable raided
the local Owls' lodge a few nights
ago, arrested Secretary f. E. Far
rish and took charge of the club fix
tures and destroyed the stock of liq
uors. The hearing was set, but be
fore the time for the hearing the lodge city officials came to an agree
ment by which the lodge agrees to
cease conducting its clubrooms and
the handling of liquors for its mem
bers. The secretary was then re
leased. The club had operated for a year
and has been keeping liquors on stor
age for its members. There has been
considerable complaint for several
months and at the December election
a new charter was adopted by the peo
ple, which was stringent on the hand
ling of liquors.
