general favor. The hubbub stirred
up over the recommendation of Geer

that he was turned down from the
collectorship in order to keep the

the belief was correct or not, it
raised a feeling of protest practically

C oniirkssman T onove has in mind
a measure of considerable import
ance to the people of the Willamette
valley, that he will introduce in the
form of a bill when congress meets
in December. It is not for publica

set on foot to condemn the locks at
Oregon City for public use. The
support of Chuinnan Hooker of the

viewed the site recently, is promised.

City is 50 cents a ton, which is a

Hon. John Gill, joint representative
of Yamhill and Tillamook counties in
the legislature (by grace of the union
party) was in the city Saturday last.
That was all right. Some mischievous
busybody who was nosing around into
other people’s business, somehow got
onto the fact that he went to a local
bank and cashed a hundred dollarcheck.
There was nothing very remarkable
about that either, in view’ of the well
known fact that prosperity is returning
to the country and even popocrats have
more checks and money items about
their clothes than they used to have.
But, say the busybodies, this check was
signed by Jonathan Bourne, who man

probably true that during the legislative
assembly an intimate friendship sprang
up between the statesman from Yam
hill and the statesman from Multnomah.
It has been remarked that they were
much in each other’s company, and it is
not improbable that some time when the
statesman from the metro|>oli8 ran a
little short in the pocketbook he called
upon his rural friend for the loan of five
twenties. The fact that the said check
was dated June 9th, 1897, and was not
presented for payment until Sept. 18th,
is no evidence of political jobbery. There
is positively no evidence that it was
drawn earlier than indicated on its face
and dated ahead to keep a string on the
Yamhill statesman in the event of a
special legislature. The more probable
theory is that farmer Gill, acting upon
the thrifty idea of having a personal
friend in Portland, consigned his June

be correct. Even if the base presump

Gill were allowed to stand, it does not
