J)EMOCRA TIC .CONVENTION.
The county democracy met nt tlio
court . house in The : DuIIcm Tuesday
moriiinfr, for the purpose of nominating
.11 county ticket. The convention con
sisted of 88 delegates, most of whom
were present, the proxies belnf- remark -:ably
few. The convention ffns railed
to order by E. Scbutz, chairman of the
.county central committee, who, in a
dew ( well chosen words, gave an ac
count of his management, stating
iamong other things that he had man-:
.aped two campaigns with only $200 ex-
pense. He then declared nominations
-for temporary chairman in order, and
J. B. Condon was chosen unanimously,
.Tohn L. Hollingshead was ipade tem
porary secretary and D. L. On tea as
sistant.. " Committees were then ap
pointed, as follows; On credentials,
Adams, Seufert, Glenn, Dufur, Maier
.and Klinger. On districting the coun
ty for the purpose of apportioning dele
gates to the state poh en tion, pitman,
McCIure, Parker, I'illoon and Vanbib
iber. On resolutions, Sclmtz, Mcln
iTiery, Gibons, Pratherand Wagonblast.
A recess was taken until 1 o'cloffk p. m.,
:at which time the committees reported,
their reports were adopted, the tempo
rary officers were made permanent and

ent deputy; and Li. E. Morse of Ifood
River were placed in nomination. On
motion, tellers , were appointed by the
.chair, M. V. Harrison and Een Wilson
'being named. This was the office
;,ver which the warmest .contest oc
curred and was remarkably -close, Phir
man receiving 42 and Morse 40 votes.
. Mr. Phirman accepted his defeat phil-
osophically, and will no doubt, use his
best energies to elect his 'successful op
ponent. Following this nomitiHtion
.came that of treasurer, R. E. Williams
'defeating Orion Kinersly by a vote of
48 to 40. Had Mr. Kinersly 's name
Vbeen brought out sooner, the result
might have been different, for he has
many warm friends. For commission
er, a small contest was inaugurated,
the nominees being. F. M. Jackson of
Hood River, Mr. Winefleld of Eight
Mile, and.McGill of Oak Grove. Four
"ballots were required to settlo it, and
-though Mr. Wingfield was finally nom
inated, the fact was due to a question
of geography, Hood River already hav
ing the sheriff. H. Pitman and W. T.
"McCIure were nominated for assessor,
Mr. Pitman being chosen by a rote of
63 to 22. There was no candidate for
surveyor, and for school superintend

INITIATIVE ASfi IIEFERETSITCM
A Short Explanntion of an Important
Reform Bring Advocated in Oregon
Law-Making by the People.
No. 4. "
Published .by request rf the Joint Committee
on Direct Legislation, SV. 8. U'Ren, Secre
tary, Mllwaukle, Oregon. ' ,
An idea of the business tiiat can be
done under this system may be formed
from the report of the proceedings of a
New England town meeting. Rock
land,' Maam-buoe'ts, has 6200 inhab
itants, 1078 dwellings, 800 of which are
occupied by owners. There are 1891
votew andit taxes 5787 acres of land.
Gn March 2, 185)1,' 810 voters of the
town met for the annual meeting. A
not ice naming I lie business to be trans
acted had been posted seven days pre
vious and published in both the news
papers. They elected a (own clerk and
treasurer, three supervisors, three
school directors, a water commissioner,
a board of health with three members,
two library trustees, three auditors and
seven constables. There was an ap
propriation bill of. twenty different
items, to be voted on separately and
twenty-eight bills proposing single ap
propriations. Some of Ihose items
were placed in the notice of meeting by
the town council of its own will a
practical application of the referendum
and others at the request of the cit
izens, which is the working foitn of the
initiative. Besides electing twenty-five
officers and a chairman, that meeting
appropriated nearly $50,000, rejected
propositions to appropriate - several
thousand more, voted on sixty-nine
different questions, the majority of
which were debated, and adjourned be
fore bed time.
The extra expense necessary to make
laws in this' manner would be more
than offset by the saving in other lines,
regardless of the many useless appro
priations ttiat would be cut off. For
instance, the cost of issuing a pamphlet
stating the reasons for and against all
the laws passed ly Oregon's last legis
lature and delivering a copy to each
voter in the state., would be a little less
than $17,000. Extnt wages to clerks
and judges of election might make a
total of 120,000, which is nearly 537,000
less than the last legislature paid for
Party lines are largely wiped out, as
is the case in Switzerland to-day. The
management of our school business is
a practical example of the advantages
of home rule by the initiative and ref
erendum. Not, one school director in a
thousand is elected or rejected because
he is a republican, democrat or prohi
bitionest. The people of the district
examine the estimates for the year and
vote the tax levy.- A complaint of ex
travagance or dishonesty iu school
matters is seldom or never heard.
We need the initiative and referen
dum in order that the people of each
city and county may decide for itself
on the time of residence, character and
education which shall entitle a man or
a woman to the rights and privileges of
a citizen of a county or city. We must
have it to simplify the laws, to educate
our voters, to destroy and prevent class
legislation, to reform our courts, to cor
rect and prevent the thousands. of mis
takes and steals of our hired men in the
legislatures, city councils and county
courts, and lastly so that we can easily
change our laws as conditions and pro
ductions change. , " , . "
Oregon can have the system this
year if the producers will stand together
and defeat all candidates for the legis
lature who are not in favor of law
making by the people. Earnest work
by those who believe the' majority
should rule, in fact, as well as theory,
will give us the initiative and referen
dum in a few months. .
The orders represented by this com
mittee have circulated 1200 copies of
J. W. Sullivan's book entitled "DireU
Legislation," which was largely instru
mental in ' starting the referendum
movement in this country, and 50,000
pamphlets on the subject. There is
not a post office in the state but has re
ceived a number of these pamphlets.
More literature can be had by writing
to our secretary.
In closing these letters, we prophesy
that from the time the initiative and
referendum becomes a law in Oregon,
the constructive intelligence which has
made the multitude of machines that
should lighten the burden of man's
labor will -also be able to make such
laws that the m.arket for the products
of labor will never be glutted so long as
any person has less of the comforts of
lite man tie is willing or able to pay tor
by labor such laws that the widow
and tlie'TaUierlecs need not suffer the
pains of hunger and cold. ,

Carefully watch your colt for the first ten
days, and see that its bowels act properly, as
the first ten days are the most critical in a
foal's exlstenise. If you can got them over the
first ten days they usually require very little
attention If the mare is fed Judiciously.
The mare should be fed some two or three
weeks before she is due to foal and some time
ofter soft food, such as boiled oats, bran and
linseed that has been boiled for twelve hoursi
or longer, so as to loosen the system and pro
vide a generous flow of milk. If from some
caj-iso the mare Bhould not nhave sufficient
milk the best substitute Is cow's milk, one-

Dear boys, 1 want to give you , -.' .
A motto safe and good; ' ,
Twill make your life successful ',
If you heed it as you should.
Obey it In the loiter
Don't say a thing iHv'good enough"
Till it can be no better.,
And whether at your lessons.
Or at daily work.
.Don't be a lialf way dabbler
Don't slip and slide and shirk
And think it doesn't matter; "
That such talk is "trash" and "stuff" -For
until your task is perfect
It is never good enough.
If your work is In the schoolroom.
Make your lesson tell;
No matter what you mean to be.
Build your foundation well.
Every knotty point and problem
- -That you bravely master now
Will increase your skill to labor
With the pen or with the plow.
If you sweep a store or stable.
Be sure you go behind
Every box and bale and counter;
It will pay, you'll always find,
, To be careful, patient, thorough.
Though the work be hard and rough,
And when you've done your very best
Twill then be "good enouyh." '
So you'd better take niy motto
If you ever mean to work
To any station higher
Than a stable boy or clerk.
ItwiU make you Independent;
It wIl make you no man's debtor.
Then never say "It's good enough"
Till it can be no bet ter. ,
' .:. . . ... Golden Days.
- - A Cliincrio Legend. . -
"Very many years ago," said a
Chinese fortune teller, "there was a
redheaded Chinaman in China. . He
lived there so long ago that no one
now tiving had ever seen him. Chew
Fnt was his name, and he was tall
and fair of complexion. From some
cause not pleasing in the eyes of one
of the numerous gods, Chew Fut
was known of all over north China,
where he lived and grew to man
"One day it was disclosed to a few
of the faithful that this particular
Chinese with the red hair must die,
but it was not explained by the deity
why. It is not known to this day
why-the order was disobeyed, for no
steps were taken to end the life of
Chew Fut, and so a fearful vengeance
was wreaked on the people. A ter
rible earthquake occurred, and the
waters of the sea overflowed the land,
engulfing thousands of inhabitants,
who were carried out to sea by the
receding waters and drowned.
; "The red haired Chinese was lout at
the same time, and it is believed was
transported direct to the infernal
regions, where he must always suffer
fearful torture." San Francisco Ex
' A. simple method pf ' keeping iron
and steel from rusting is to coat them
with a solution of rubber in benzol,
made about the consistency of cream.
. It may be applied with a brush and
is easily rubbed.off when desired. A
coating of more use where the "tooth"
imparted by rubber would be disad
vantageous is prepared by dissolving
2 parts of crystals of chloride of iron
2 of antimony chloride and 1 of tan
nin in 4 of water. " Apply - with a
sponge or rag and allow to dry. A
many coats can be given as .are
deemed necessary. When dry, it if
again washed with water, again al
lowed to dry and polished with lin

. Abont Mutual Agreements.
There is., a common agreement in
the inviolability of mutual engage
ments, but there seems to be a peat
liar breach of honor when two peoplo
have agreed to die together in one
failing to keep his appointment. Thip
not infrequently -happens, and it has
been remarked, as in the case of Mrs.
Brundage and Mr. Clute, that it is
the man who manages to keep his
footing in this world. The question
has arisen if on the man's part this
is prompted in the spirit in which a
man tells a woman he is going to the
lodge, or to a neighboring town, or
whether his failure to meet her or ac
company her is due to lack of cour
age. This seems not only the most
plausible but the moi.t creditable
answer. ' It is not human to run to embrace
death, but circumstances may make
it a familiar presence. Every wom
an who has filled her allotted place
in life has had at times to look death
deliberately in the face. Familiarity
with ;. any situation divests it of its
terrors. This is the reason why wom
en meet death' with more composure
than do men. This by no means ex
cuses, men from fulfilling such en
gagements as that of Mrs. Brundage
and Mr. Clute, in which the honor is
especially involved, but it explains
the defection of Mr, Clute and men
of his kind. Exchange.
A Conflict of Authority.
The late Lord Chief Justice Cock
burn was an inveterate enemy to
drafts, and on theppening day of the
Surrey assize several j'ears ago gave
orders that all the windows should
be closed. Upon . arriving at the
court the following morning he was
surprised to find that this injunction
had been neglected, and upon in
quiring was informed that the high
sheriff was the culprit. Addressing
Mr. Evelyn, the . high sheriff, he in
quired tha reason. "As the high
sheriff, your lordship," replied Mr,
Evelyn, "I Consider it to be my duty
to superintend the ventilation of this
court, and I have therefore directed
that the windows shall not be closed. "
"As lord chief justice I consider it to
be my duty, sir," thundered Cock
burn, "to fine you 500 for disobedi
ence." And the money was paid too.
