of the e.xJiauge editor, ami surely dues
not deceive the ordinary reader.
I'KhSS dispatches state that James It.
Keen, a Wall street plunger, has bet
f7,;oo against 10,000 that Hryan ulll de
feat McKiulcy in the presidential election.
I his information Is considered of sufficient
importance to put on the wires, because
Jim Keen made the wager.
IT IS announced that the represent.'!'
lives of Haltimore, Philadelphia and New
York papers who are touring the west in
a palatial private car, built for their es
pecial use, will stop over at Maker City, j
When the Chamber of Commerce com
mitteemen of that town interviews the
business man of the party, they will fall
over In a dead hint. The figure then
named will, indeed, be a shock. '
OTIINS of Sumpter resent the base,
baseless slander on their home town,orig- J

dirty work In Sumpler? Those men were
bred In a brothel, brought up in a dead
fall, and graduated at a penitentiary."
SDMI- papers seem to think that their
sole mission is to lie about the rival town
and abuse the opposition political party.
Meiaice Till. MlNkK'S Conception of its
work is diametrically opposite to tills,
theory; because it is eiideavoiiug to assist i
in the development of eastern Oregon
and the Sumpter district in particular, the
services of its management are sought by ,
other localities. I hat is how it happens
that another MlNkK has been established ,
over at Piaiile City, and why it Is very
probable that other newspapers will be
started in otliei i.imps, to pursue the

every contention in the complaint and
granted the injunction.
IN THi; humble opinion of Till: MINI-H,
the republican campaign managers are
making a mistake hi appealing for votes
for J. T. English, the party's candidate
for the legislature, on the purely partisan
ground that there is a United States sen
ator to be chosen. Mr. English Is going
to get the republican vote, anyway; what
he needs are democratic votes, and this
partisan appeal is apt to drive some away
from him, which he otherwise would re
ceive. He Is peculiarly well fitted for the po
sition, and should command support 011
this ground. Many good citizens would
vote for him for this reason who would
refuse to do so when it Is rubbed in on
them that the principal purpose of his
election is to vote for some candidate for
the United States senate. So far as Tllli
MINI-K is concerned, it believes that Mr.
English, if elected, will serve this county
more Intelligently and faithfully than
merely entering some senatorial combine
and playing the part of a stupid figure
head. He is a man of liberal education,
of extended business experience, is pos
sessed of ample fortune, Is not avaricious;
and therefore is not open to the corrupting
influences which are usually employed to
handle members of that body. He is ca
pable of going down to Salem and becom
ing a leader; of accomplishing much good
for the state at large and this section of
eastern Oregon, in particular. From peo
ple who know him, for these reasons he
will receive a large vote; not for partisan
