Letter From a Republican
Brownsville, Or., May 18, 1896.
I haye noticed certain slanderous
articles in a newspaper at Albany
against Henry Blakely, democratic
nominee for sheriff. I desire to say
that I was residing iu Eastern Oregon
over 20 years ago at the time that it is
claimed that Mr. Blakely wasindicted.
The indictment was falsely pro
cured and the result was that Mr.
Blakely was discharged as an innocent
man. I am, and always (lave been a
republican, but when I see a good man
and a true citizen like Henry Blakely
slandered as he has been in this cam
paign I think the voters of Linn coun
ty owe it to themselves and for the
establishment of justice and right that
he be elected sheriff. I have known
Mr. Blakely for many years and never
heard augbt against his character as a
man and citizen until the revival of
this old indictment which everyone
that knows anything about it at all,
knows Mr. Blakely was Innocent. I
know enough about him to know that
if elected he will honestly and fearless
ly do his duty as an officer.

IN SWIFT WATERS,
How Lumber is Rifted Down the
The manner of rafting lumber down
the Klamath river at almost lailroad
speed, from the aawmtll atPokegama
to Honolulu, a distance of 20 miles, la
about as exciting as shooting a chute.
A raft ot about 10,000 feet of lumber is
fastened together to float like a barge,
leaving the top about five feet above
the water line. Four or five men with
long poles manage the raft, and keep
it from dashing against recks or run
ning into the bank at crooked turns
from the speed attained. ' The current
being very swift, with dangerous
cataracts and whirlpools in many
places, it requires energetio action on
the part of the managers, who seem to
have ho serious difficulty until reach
ing Lime Gulch, below the mouth of
Humbug creek, where the rafts some
times strike dangerous rocks, to be
broken to pieces, causing the men to
swim ashore or save themselves the
best way possible. The raft crew
watch carefully to keep clear of blind
roqks covered by water, on the swift
journey, not only to save the lumber
from being scattered, but also for their
own safety, as it is difficult for the
most expert swimmers to reach the
shore at any section of the turbulenj
stream.' Residents along the river
watch these rafts with intense interest
as they fly along the surface of the
water, especially through the rapids
or winding around iTooked turns, I
fearing disastrous results. By this
method u great quantity of lumber Is
supplied to miners for building water
wheels and wing and head dams at
points where there are no wagon roads
for hauling by team, or such poor roads
as to make hauling very slow and
tedious. The men who mauage these
rafts are experienced river loggers and
know all the crooks, turns, eddies,
rocks, bars aud rapids, beuce keep
their floats in proper position to shoot
through the "dangerous places with
safety, showing great skill also in
landing at points where the cargoes
A Clubbing Offer.
A great many of our readers in Linn
county like to take the Weekly Oregon
Ian. We have made arrangements
whereby we can furnish it at a reduc
tion from tbe regular price to those
who want both tbe Express and tbe
Oregonlan. The regular price of the
Oregon iau is $1.60 per year, and of the
Express $1.60 when in advance. We
will furnish both for $2. per year in
advance, a saving of one dollar to the
subscriber. The Oregonlan glvea all
the general news of tbe country once a
week, and the Express gives all tbe
local news once a week, which will
make a most excellent news service
for tbe moderate sum of $2. per year.
Those who are at present subscribers
ef tbe Express must pay in all arrear
ages and one year in advance to obtain
this special price.'
