the sale of beer. In fact, because of

Uut the secret of success of the indus

and harvesting, the grower in Oregon
can raise the best hops in the United

detriment to our industry, and' it will
take us several years to regain the
ground we have lost by reason pOf put

The board of directors has not yet
completed the preparation of its annual
rf port showing the financial condition
of the district, together with an esti
mate of the expenses for the ensuing
year, to be submitted at he annuai
crhnnl mpftimr. It is understood the'
Lreport will show a saving to the dis-:
tnct during the past year, ot aoout
$3000 over the expenses, of last year.
Among the recommendations to be
made y the board at the annual meet
ing, will probably be, that a special levy
of one mill be levied for the purpose
of placing a steam -heating plant in the
East Salem school, to replace the fur
nace that is now in use there and which
is a constant item of expense in the
matter of repairs. .
It is understood that a majority, of
the board is in favor of and will recom
mend that an additional year be added
to the present high school course, which
embraces but nine grades.
At the regular -meeting of the oard
of directors last night the bill of W. H.
Savage for $. -for taking the school
census was allowed. A certified state
ment from County Clerk W. W. Hall
showing the valuation of taxabie prop
erty in School -District No. 24 to be
$, was read.
The board briefly considered the mat
ter of levying a special tax of one mill
for supplying the East school with
steam heaters. - -
A summarv of the school census, just
completed, shows that there are 2619

"I've decided," said the dignified old
man, "to let you have that young Brite

can't be happy without him." J
"Ob. father!" the beautiful girl cried,
"you don't know how happy you have
made roe. Now I can see the gates of
paradise opening. Dear, dear, good old
papa! Let me kiss you for those Sweet
words Oh. I can hardly wait to fly to
him and tell him the : glorious news.
He will be so glad! We shall aU be so
happy now. It seems almost like a
lovely dream! I can hardly believe
that I am awake. But. tell me. what
has made you change your mmd? Yes

He kissed her fondly, and. then, with

(From Daily, Jan. 20th.)
Things political in Marion countv.
preparatory to t4e camoaisni that wi
end at the June election are beeinninsr
to assume a state of activity. It will be
noticed that the populist party central
committee has had a preliminary rneet
ing and whil they have done nothing
dehmte, the opposition to cSie republi
can forces is bezinnimr to tret into lin
-7-whetheT in double, treble or single
iine, no one nas yet authority to state,
or the temerity to -predict.
There seems to be an air of rnnfi.
dc-nce in die republican ranks. For the
dominant party there has been no call
yet ior any meetings, -excepting dab
meetings, and it will probably be the
first - of March or thereabouts i before
any other meetings are held. . i
Up to a (ew weeks ago there seemed
few candidates for the- various county
offices, but this aspect of affairs has
rardically changed since, and now var
ious names are mentioned in connec

of the electors of "Old Marion."
It is said that the friends of Frank
T. Wrrghtman have sbcen urging that
Kcrrucman o oecome a candidate on
the republican ticket for county judge.
Mr. Wrightman has many well-wishers
throughout the county who are confi
dent of his abilinesi and wjio regard
rum as deserving of any horror which
he many seek,, or rather which may
seek nun. '
For ihc same office John H. Scott's
name is mentioned.! Mr. Scott is a
rising young attorney and a very vigor
ous ami straightforward business man.
He has grown up here, and has by his
strict adherence to - correct principles
secured 4nr himself a firm place in the
public esteem.
The present imntrribent. Judee G. P.
Terrell, is understood to be a candi
date for re-election, i
It is reported that John M. Watson.
of Turner, ex-ounty cormnissioner.
would not be averse to accepting the
nomination for' -county judge on this
Ex-Judge ,W. C. ijubbard is also said
to be a candidate for the same place.
Some of the people of. the north end
of the county connect' the name of
lion. W. T. Grimm with this distinc
For county assessor there are several
candidates in the "field." The friends of
tihe present incumbent. J. W. Hofoart.
assert that his :eood record should : en
title hjm to another term in this im
portant office. t
Henry C Porter, of. Awmsville. is
mentioned in this connection. His
neighbors say that he is especially
qualified for the duties, of the place and
they think he is deserving of the hon
ors tfliereof.
There seems no one to dispute the
claims of cither A. L. Downing, coun-i
tjr treasurer, or J. H. Roland, county
recorder, to a re-nomination and re
election. For the nomination for the office of
sheriff there are several candidates. It
is said that Alonro T. Wain wouW not
hesitate to make 4hc race again, if caU
ed upon to do so by the republicans in
county convention 'assembled, and it
is promised by his1 friends that if he
Ls 90 called upon hal certainly will make
a successful run.
Hon. David H. Lkoney. of Jefferson,
is said by some to be in training for
this nomination, but tin's is not stated
here as a certainty.!
Lieut. Chas. A. Murphy, ol this city,
is also said to be a candidate, his friends
basing his claims for consideration up
on the fact that he wen to fight for
his country in the Philippines.
Prof. George W.f Jones will, certain
ly succeed himself as county school
superintendent. f he so desires. The-e
is no one to dispute either his ability
or his deserving qualities.
Various names are mentioned in con
nection with the legislative .ticket, but
the rumors are soi'many and uncertain
that the reporter defers the mention of
any or all of the candidates until such
time as things in this particular con
tention shall have become somewhat
more settled.
gene Johns, the i4-year:old son of Hen
ry Johns, who' resides about two miles
south of this city, was caught by the
night agent at the Southern Pacific passenger-
depot at .1 o'clock yesterday
morning and detained until Officer
Smith arrived fromi the cityj when the
lad was turned over to his custody.
The little fellow had persisted through
out the evening in Juniping on and off
the moving trains, endangering his life
thereby and it was Awhile carrying on
this dangerous practice about the be
lated northbound overland that he was
captured by the agent. ; There is an
ordinance prohibiting this performance
on the part of all persons not in the
employ of the railroad company, and
there is a second ordinance which
makes it a misdemeanor for minors to
be on the streets after 8 o'clock in the
evening. Thus young Johns was vio
lating both ordinances. He was taken
before City Recorder N. J. Judah yes
terday morning, who inquired into the
case and took the same nnder advise
ment until 10 o'clock this momi.ig, in
tending in the meantime to communi
cate with the lad's parents relative to
having him placed in the state reform
atory. ' ., : .

and made his presenccc known eariy by
tnsistmg that matters discussed should
be kept from the public, which brought
out the . statement by a good-natured
populist, that a political party which
advocated the initiative and referendum
could not afford to hold star chamber
proceedings, and should do nothing that
its members need be ashamed oL
However, it was decided to permit no
reporters to take the proceedings in

and a warm discussion was had, but all
matters were finally deferred; until the

Washington, Jan. 16. The president
today transmitted to congress the
claim of the Eastern Extension Tele
graph company amounting to $4,334
for compensation on account of ex-
Snses in repairing the cables between
anila and Hong Kong, and . Manila
and Ilioli, cut by orders of Admiral
Dewey during Lthe Spanish . war. The
-claim is presented by the British gov
emment through the department Apt

ting it, appends an opinion of the at
torney general that it has no standing
in law. The secretary, however, turns
the claim over to congress in order that
it may determine whether or not, as an

should be reimbursed for a'ctuaj ex
