The convention was then adjourned
and the new central committee met to
arrange for the coming contest.
The convention, considering the situ
ation, made the very best nominations
that could have keen made. It waa the
opinion of the majority that the old Re
publican rule and principle should not
be deviated from that when an officer
serves one term and proves able and
faithful he should, if he desires, be giv
en a second nomination. For this
reason no contest was had on any of the
nominations for county office but one.
Mr. Martin of Silver Lake was the
choice of the convention for County
Commissioner because he had served
only part of a term as appointee, had
made one of the best commissioners
Lake county ever had, and it was
thought by the majority that he de
served a nomination. Mr. William Mc
Corinack of Paisley, one of the old time
Republicans, was nominated for Com
iiiissioner in I'uucue and hta frieuds took
his defeat philosophically and in ex
cellent gra-e. C. W. Ient, one of the
beat men and true; Republicans in
Lake county was also named, and
though he lailed to secure th. noinina
lion, Th. Examiner is sure he is too
good a Republican to care about it. Two
years hence Warner Valley will not
only be entitled to representation, but
will certainly be asked to nam. a man
on the Republican county ticket.
A a whole, the Republican Conven
tion of Lake county for 1902, wa a
harmonious body, and Th. Examiner
iaassuied it can say without fear of con
tradiction that on election day every
Republican in the county will be found
working and voting for the enccess of
the Republican party. The Republi
can are clearly in tLe majority by at
least aeventy-flve to one hundred, and
there is no reaaon why every nominee
on the ticket should net be elected this
TONGUE'S RUBSEK STAMP.
Mr. Tongue's colleagues and per
sonal friends in Washington are having
a good deal of fun at that gentleman's
expense over the incident narrated be
low wheh ia claimed to be true:
A few days ago when Governor Taft,
of the Philippines, waa appearing be
fore one of the House committees, Mr.
Tongue heard of his presence in the
committee, and said to a colleague, "I
should like to meet the Governor,"
Representative Mercer, who was an old
acquaintance, took Mr. Tongue out and
presented him, saying, "Governor, this
is Representative Tongue, of Oregon."
"Oh, yes," responded the Governor,
cheerfully. "Your name ia farmiliar to
me. I remember getting a letter from
you once signed with a rubber stamp."
Mr. Tongue seldom signs his letters,
but, instead, a facsmile of his signature
is generally attached with a rubber
SOCIALIST STATE TICKET.
The Socialists of Oregon held their
convention in Portland on March 19th,
and nominated the following ticket
For governor R. R. Ryan of Marion
Secretary of state C. W. Barxee of
State treasurer W. W. Myers of
Justice of the supreme court C. P.
Rutherford of Harney County.
Superintendent of public instruction,
attorney general and state printer to
be filled by the state central committee.
Congressman, second district D. T.
Gerdes of Clatsop County.
Among a number of persons tendered
the nomination for governor, who de
clined to run, waa S. 8 Snellof Medford.
The platform adopted ia short but em
braces several declarations well cal
culated to draw public support at this
Tongue Will Appoint Cadets.
A dispatch from Washington says
that Representative Tongue will this
year be called upon to appoint cadets to
both the Naval and Military Academy.
He is making arrangements to have all
candidates for appointment examined
at Salem on or about June 1. Mr.
Tongue announces that he will make
his selections on the basis of the aver
ages made by the candidates in this
competitive examination, which will
probably be conducted by some of the
well-known citizens of Salem. His defi
nite plans will be announced later.
Meanwhile, those who desire particular
information as to qualifications and re
quirements, can secure a full statement
by w riting to Mr. Tongue.
It is understood that Lake county will
have a candidate for cadetship in the
person of Jf mes Maxwell, youngest son
of J. W. Maxwell.
CAKRY OUT THEIR
The Ball aod 5upper Last Friday
Evening Waa a Complete 5uc
ceaa la Every Particular.
The much talked of ball by the Wood
men of the World of Lakeview was held
last Friday night and proved to k
everything promised of it the swellect
social affair of the season, and a grand
success in every particular. Over seventy-five
couples were in the grand
march. A large number of Women ol
Woodcraft and Woodmen wearing the
badge of Circle and Camp were in tha
march and a Woodman also carried the
beautiful Camp banner which waa ad
mired by alt present. Mr. and Mrs. W.
A. Sherlock led the march and at it
c- nclusion those who wanted to dance
formed in quadrilles, and then the joy
Two round dancee and a square dance
was the order of the evening, and those
who did not indulge in th. maxy whirl
of the waits or schottische bad ample op
portunity to dance to their hearts' con
tent in the quadrille. It was a grand,
night. Just sufficient snow fell in the
early evening to make perambulating
good and keep the shoes and cancins;
floor free from mod and grit.
The Opera House Was beautifully dee
orated with evergreen trees and sprigs,
and flags and bunting, and many were
the favorable comment, on the ap
pearance of the dancing place. The
music by Solace Circle Orchestra, con
sisting of piano, violin, bass viol and
cornet in the hands of Mrs. Bert rand
Blair, L. D. Robinson, George Reid and
A. Y. Bea:b was the best heard ia
Lakeview for many a long day, and waa
one of the features that made the ball a
Many handsome costumes were worai
by the ladies, and it was remarked by
seveial that more pretty dresses were
worn that nigbt than usual at social af
fairs in Lakeview. And not only were
pretty dresses much in evidence, bat
pretty young women were there in num
bers. It was really a very swell af
fair. The banquet room at Masonic ball
was very neatly decorated and the
tables were greatly admired for their
beautiful decorations and tastily placed
viands. Over the center table waa a
rope twined in Circle colors, red, white
and green, from which was suspended a
white dove, an emblem of the order,
and encircling the dove's neck waa a
placard, printed in gilt letters the mot
to : "She Flies With Her Own Wings."
As usual with Woodcraft spreads the
supper was pronounced a grand feast.
which waa greatly enjoyed by all pres
ent. The committees on supper and
decoration are certainly to be compli
mented for their work. The Women of
Woodcraft and wives of Woodmen who

of their efforts to please.
The dance continued until 4 a. m. and
the gene ral verdict is that the Wood
man Hall was a complete Buccea.
Fifty-six tickets were sold.
On page seven of this issue will be
found an article headed "D. of H. En
tertainmentA. 0. U. W." In the in
troduction the types made us say : "The
W. O. W. and Degre of Honor of Lake
view bad a glorious time last Thursday
evening." It will be readily seen that
this ia an error. Instead of "W. O. W."
it should read A. O. U. W. The Exam
iner anticipates no serious cousequencee
as a result of the error, as both orders
are among the best in the world.
