ROBERT A. EM MITT.
Oregonian, Sept. 9.
Robert A. Emmitt, one of the repre
sentatives from the joint district com
prising Crook, Klamath, Lake and Was
co counties, is a son of Hon. John Em
mitt, of Douglas county; who served a
term in the Oregon state senate. He
was born in Illinois in 1850; came across
the plains in 1852 with his parents, who
settled in Douglas county, and taught a
term of school near Rosebure in 1874.
He was married to Miss Flora Lesley, of
the same county, in 1875, and removed
to the eastern part of Jackson countv
and engaged in farmingand stockraising,
in which he has been fairly successful.
That same year Jackson county was di
vided, the eastern portion forming Lake.
In 1882 he was the republican candidate
for sheriff of Lake county, but was de
feated by J. L. Hank, a democrat, and
a first cousin of Abraham Lincoln. In
1882Lakecounty wasdivided, the western
portion being named Klamath, so Mr.
Emmitt has lived in three counties with
out a change of residence. In 1886 he
was elected and served a terra as county
commissioner. In 1898 he was elected a
member of the board of equalization
from the First judicial district by a ma
jority of over COO, while at the proceed
ing election the district gave a demo
cratic majority of over 1500. The act
creating the board having been repealed
he never served. Mr. Emmitt has serv
ed as justice of the peace for 20 years in
his own precinct, tie was elected last
June as one of the three representatives
from the counties of Wasco, Crook, Lake
and Klamath by 945 majority. Having
cast his first vote for General Grant in
1872, Mr. Emmitt has ever been a strong
advocate of republican principles, many
times in advance of his party, particular
ly in reference to the gold standard.
It fs positively amustner to seo the
strenuous efforts of th Republican
press to make 10 to 1 tho paramount
iesuvj in this campaign. It a amusing
because for at least nix jears, until
the last few months, these ame papers
have been assuring us almost daily
t.hat "free silver is dead." Populi&t
"Free silver" was a dead issue untii
Mr. Bryan resurrected it and grabbed
the Demo-Pop. convention at Kansas
City by the ears and made the party
leaders insert it as a plank in the
Demo-Pop. platform. That was one
instance when the man showed that he !
was greater than his party, - 1

HE WANTS BRYAN SHEEP.
Here and there one may find a Bryan
man who is a Bryan man for the reason
assigned by J. K. Price of Lincoln, Neb.
The Philadelphia "Pres" tells the story.
A friend of Mr. Price met the latter re
cently after a long separation, and con
gratulated him on his prosperity, which
Mr. Price said was the rtsult of raising
sheep under the Dingley Tariff law.
The friend then remarket! : "You will
of course support the McKinley adminis
tration then." And this was the ans
wer. "No, I can't do it. It's simply a
matter of business with me. I bought
2000 sheep four years ago at 2.25 a head
and sold them out two weeks ago for
4.35 a head, and in the meantime I got
all the wool. I bought Cleveland sheep
and sold them as McKinley sheep.
What I want now is some Bryan sheep
to speculate on." But we don't think
Mr, Price will get them. Rocbester

At Camden, Maine, recently the larg
est schooner in the world was launched.
It is the first schooner to have six masts,
and those masts are handsome sticks of
Oregon pine, each 119 feet long and 30
inches in diameter in the partners. The
fore-top-mast, jibboom and driver boom
are also Oregon pine.- This shows that
the value of Oregon timber for shipbuild
ing purpofjes is acknowledged. Oregon,
with its forests of unexcelled timber cer
tainly has a bright future. When open
ed to the markets of the world these
will prove a great source of income.
