The two hottest days or tins
year, so far, were Suturduy and
Sunday. Ou these days theCiov

weather record, published every

shows that the opinion is practically
unauiinous that candidates for a
seat in the I'nited States Senate will
make the run in the primaries and
that nearly all the candidates for the
Legislature will pledge themselves
on the ballot to support the man
who wins In the primaries.
There ure u few who do not take a
favorable view of the Idea of pledg
ing a candidate for the Legislature
to vote for the man who receives the
largest popular vote. Prominent
residents of Salem, sitting In a group
discussed the direct-primary law a
few days since.
"If I were a candidate for the Leg

pledge myself on the ballot, but

political sagacity. "When any man

The Last Mall (lame.
The last game of the tournament,
played Thursday afternoon between
Silver Lake and Lakeview was about
the most Interesting game of the
week. It was not the best played
game, but as much interest was
shown and us largo a crowd witness

them to the feeding grounds fat and
strong, and a good supply of hay
left over from last year, there will be
plenty of feed to winter all stock.
Conditions are not ut ull alarming'.
Stockmen understand their business,
and will not undetake to hold over
more stock than they have buy for,
when they can be made fat on the
range and can be put on the market,
at prices that prevail throughout
the buying season. It is a little ear
ly yet to say just what the price of
beef will be, but the price of mutton
has been established, and It Is good.
And we are told by men who are
qualified to slate, that good beef will
command a fair price, alno that the
Lake county beef will be fat this fall.
Men have also told us that with tho
surplus of hay left over from last
year, even with a light crop this
year, there would be tho usual
amount of hay on the feeding
grounds tills winter. Then let us
say again, that there ie no cause for

As Captain Slanden concluded,
Judge Do Haven said: "Uentlemen,
is this your verdict?
"It Is," responded the foremau.
Clerk Sladen polled the Jury, and
Judge De Haven directed that it be
discharged. When these proceedings
were complete, Judge Bennett arose
and, on the part of Senator Mitchell,
moved for a new trial.
Judge Do Haven directed that the
motion bo continued till next Mon
day and declared tho court adjourn
ed. All morning and a portion of tho
afternoon was consumed by lleuey
la flshlug the lust argument of tho
prosecution. He devoted a largo
part of tho time In demonstrating to
tho jury that Mitchell must have
known where the alleged illegal fees
came from. In alluding to Mitchell's
age and long service, he compared
him to Lord Paeon, who in his old
age, notwithstanding his services to
his country, greater far than Mitch
ell's, was tried and convicted by tho
house of lords, uni sentenced to bo
Judge Do Haven delivered tho
charge to tho jury immediately on
the conclusion of Honey's speech.
The charge was fair und satisfactory
to both parties. Ho toll tho Jury it
was its duty to convict if tliero was
no reasonable doubt au to his guilt,
otherwise the verdict should be for
ucqulttul. Tho gist of the matter
was whether Mitchell knew ut the
time tho money was paid what and
wherefor it was paid, and whether
ho had done work before tho depart
ment expecting compensation. This
fact was for tho Jury to decide.
The case went to the Jury ut 3:30
