For a genuine exhibition of nna.iul
terated gull, John L. A.ur, ex-president
of the Young Kepunlicitn chilis of Ore
gon, is entitled to tiivt, second mid
third prizes. He issul a cad for a
meeting at Portland of representatives
of all the clubs iu the stale I st 1'hurs
day. They came numerously, but
John L., fearing there might Iks too
much labor for the delegates, kindly
ook the wlolo business in his own
hands, appointed committees, elected
himself president, passed resolutions,
aud made a loug and wishy-washy
speech in advance, Resides this, he
had the proceedings of the eotiveution,
including his own speech, printed be
fore the convention met, and sent as
"advance sheets" to the republican
press of the state. According to Ibis
advance sheet, the delegates went wild
when John I.. Ayer ascended the ros
trum, cheered themselves hoarse uud
interrupted hi speech with thunders
of appiuuse. The ridiculous part of the
affair was that some of the country
delegates got a copy of Ayer's pro
gramme and printed speech and pro
ceeded to smash his siu:o. As a inaitcr
of fact, when Ajer ascended the ros
trum theie were no thunders of ap
plause and not a hut iu tiie air. i it
was greeted with a decidedly cold wave
of silence. The country delegates aud
some of the Portlandcrs who were not
"in it" had things their own wav, and
Ayer did not get a chance witu his
speech, though Le did have the gall to
repeat part of it. The democratic club
meeting mav have been "drunk anu
disorderly," but it did not have any
fun at all compared to that furnished
by Ayer to the republicans last Thurs
day. Judge John F. Caples of Portland is
the president of the lilaiue club of that
place. We are tempted to hope for the
good judges sake that the republican
ticket will be elected. The copious
tear-fall the judge can indulge in be
fore a jury over an $18 a dozen cay use,
premises that defeat at the coming
election would translate him into a sort
of "he" Niobe, and the judge does not
There is an ugly rumor afloat that
Secretary Blaine bus deliberately mis
led the president in the matter of the
Chilian affair for the purpose of bring
ing odium on the administraiion aud
glory to himself. It does not seem
probable that Blaine would descend to
a thing like that, but politics causes
devotees to cut queer capers and well,
this is a president-making year.
Some of our democratic exchanges
are suggesting ex-Postmaster Iioby of
Portland us the next nominee of their
party for governor. Our present gov
ernor will hold the office for two years
yet, if he escapes the presidential ticket,
and he is good enough for anybody.

Uro ind Hog Dy.
Tuesday was ground hog day, and as
the sun shone brightly, this famous
weather prognostieator was enabled to
see his shadow, and no doubt, accord
ing to his ancient custom, crawled into
his hole and told the weather clerk to
turn on his weather. It was awfully i
unkind of the signal service beast, but!
it can't be helped, and we will have to
take the weather as it comes.
A Uerniit ill a Hold.
Nelson Purdum, of Jefferson county,
bid., disappeared from his usual haunts
a couple of mouths ago after having
squandered a big pension allowance. No
trace of him could be fonnd until a few
months ago, when hunters came across
him on the bank of a river near Madi
son. Smoke was issuing from the
ground, and an investigation led to their
finding a room underground, in which
Purdum was living. A rude cot. a stove
and a quantity of provisions were found,
bnt the man, whose long gray beard and
locks gave him a wild appearance, de
clined to come out. The rise in the
river is likely to fhxxl the hermit's place
of abode, but no amount of persuasion
will make him desert his strange home.

Apple HloMnoms In Winter.
Perhaps every one does not know how
easily fresh apple blossoms can be had
in winter. Get the ends of branches
with plump flower buds, and place them
in water in a warm sunny window, and
they will soon bloom. No doubt many
other kinds of trees and shrubs will give
as good satisfaction. Vick's Magazine.
