The question of whether the section
in the 1913 district attorney law, pro
viding there shall be no eleotion of
district attorney until in 1916, is valid
hss been put up to the attorney gen
eral by the county clerk of baker, and
he has rendered an opinion upholding
tha law.
It Is pulnted out by the attorney
geneial that a constitutional amend
ment adopted in 1911 removed tne dis
trict attorney from constitutional offi
ces. Since the provision for district
attorneys bss Deen msde by statute.
Tha 1913 law repealed the old law. thus
leavlrg no provision for any election
of district attorneys until in 1916. The
attorney general points out tbst all
vacancies occurring in the office of
district attorney prior to 1917 are to be
tilled by appointment by the govern
or. The 1913 law provided for a district
attorney for every county. The dis
trict attorneys in ottloe at tlio lime the
law went int" effect remained district
attorney for their home county, and the
governor appointed attorney's for the
other counties.

Mrs. Frank J. Struck Died
January 30th at Salem
Viola Sherman Struck was born at
Madison Wisconsin, April 1st 1875,
Died January 30, 1914 at the Salem
hospital. Her age was thirty-eight
years, ten months and one day. She
was married in 1893 to Frank J. StrucK
at Bristol, Wisconsin. After living
in Bristol four years they moved to
lreton, Iowa. In 19U8 tbey moved to
Uellville, Kansas and in 1910 to Lake
view, Oregun.
In her decease she leaves a daugh
ter, Mildred, a son, Vernon and her
husband, a father in Missouri, a brother
in Superior, Wisconsin and a sister in
Bristol, Wisconsin.
During the past 15 years she bas
been afflicted witb nervousness and
heart trouble. For ihe past several
monlbs she bas been an almost con
stant sufferer. Two weeks before ber
death she was taken to the Salem hos
pital but she kept growing weaker
until the end came.
She joined the "resbytenan church
here last June 29th and was also a
member of the local Kebekab lodge.
It was in her early childhood that she
accepted Christ as ber Savior, uniting
with the 1'ie.snyterian church ana
faithfully walking in His fuoUteps
until ihe final cull. Her sorrowing
friends bear witness to her goodness.
1 hf home lite was beautiful and tne
good wife and mother knew how to
show her devotion to rer family. Noth
ing in her power that she ci.uhl do tor
her children was left undone and she
enjoyed it all. She thought of others
and many were the acts of charity un
known save to God and the thankful
beneficiaries. While she wad in the
world, the world was the richer for
her life; when she passed out of it the
world waa Ihe poorer tor her death,
but we rejoice that her name is writ
ten by God in the Book of Life. A few
months before her death she alfo led
ber two cliildien to the Savior, both
uniting with the Presbyterian church.
In this act the blessings of God rest
not only upon the children, hut upon
the mother as well. She was baopy in
seeing her daugnter and son walk in
the truth.
The remains are hemg removed from
Salem to Lakeview and will reach here
tomorrow. The luneral services will
be held next Sunday atternoon at 2:30
o'clo k tioin the Methodist church,
set vices to be conducted by her pas
tor, Rev. Geo. A. Crawford, of the
Presbyterian church.
The brother, E. E. Sherman, of
Supeiior, Wisconsin, is enroute to
Lakeview and will arrive here for the

From the many . street rumors that
s re begining to circulate it is evident
that interest in local political circles
will soon wax warm.
County Judge Daly hss been fre
quently mentioned of late as a possible
aspirant lor gubernatorial honors, and
such being tbe case this would elimin

re-election to County Jndge. So far

Notwithstanding tbat no opposition

horse picked to oppose him at the prim
