A meeting, of the state central
committee pf the People's party
was held in the Forester's hall, in
Portland last Saturday, Chairman
Galvani presiding. The state ex

in accordance with the resolution
adopted at the Oregon City con;

composed of W. II. Galyani, chair-
LmanjDr. J. F. Hendricks, secre
tary; Nathan Pierce, treasurer; W.
H. Spaugh, of Harrisburg, and
John Luce, of John Day, Grant
county. Mr. Luce, the new mem
ber, was a candidate for congress
in the second district at the last
election. A resolution was adopted
to the effect that the party
should be kept free from any alii
ance with .either the republican or
democratic party. Ways and
means for raising fund? were dis
cussed, and it was decided to have
the various People's p.arty clubs
make small contributions to help
pay bills and legitimate expenses
which may be incurred during the
comjng campaign. The state cen

Tuesday we had the pleasure of
a visit from II. C. Clawsmi, who
was a resident of this county thirty
years ago, but now resides in the
state of Idaho. He came to the val
ley forty years ago and remained a
resident for ten years. His visit
is not as pleasant as he anticipated,
owning to finding things so changed
from what they once were Men
that were young then are old now,
and do not recognize him,
although he finds some that he

I visited Jackson county not long
since and met some of the leading
People's Party workers, among
them the true and tried Ira Wake
field who como within six votes of
being elected Circuit Judge. Mr.
Wakefield is one of the most effec
tive stump speakers in tho state.
He has 11 pleasant little farm home
near Phoenix and aearly all his
neighbors for miles around are
earnest advocates of our party, not
least among them being S. if. Holt
and Wm. H. Brecsc. The latter
has a little fruit ranch in Talent,
where he plays the roll of Vu!can
and does the best blacksmith work
of any man in the two counties of
Jackson and Josephine. He is a
well-educated German and while
his efforts as a stump speaker re
veal more or less of tho Teutonic
twist in the use of English, he al
ways succeeds in making his points
more clear and telling than a largo
majority of our native workers do.
