adopted resolutions of respect in mem
ory of the late Judge Flinn.
Say Ha Peels Much Encouraged in His
Candidacy Per Congress Against Hon.
Binge? Hermann Gives Some Sea
sons Why He Should Eeceive the
Nomination at the Convention.
"I have been so very busy with court
work, during the past two weeks that
it has been impossible for me to get
away from Eugene, and not having had
an opportunity to cover tHe field, how
ever much I . have wanted 'to, it is my
opinion that you know more about the
conditions generally throughout fhe
district, regarding the respective can
didacies for Congress than I do. Cer
tainly I am trying to keep myself post
ed as to the situation in every part of
the district, and I have been receiving
numerons lefters from the most promi
nent and influential citizens in every
county,! and from the tenor of these
letters, which come to me unsolicited
and many of. them from men whom Ii
thought were not my friends, faat is, i
in a political way, I have every reason
ro feel very much encouraged; in ny
candidacy." i
. These were substantially the words I
Hon. L. T. Harris, of Eugene, who was
in the city looking up his interests in
regard to his candidacy for the nomisa
tion forCongressman in the First Con
gressional district. lie has, he said, of
course, learned of tbe recently" an
nounced Candidacy of Hon. B. F.
Mulkey, of Polk county, but he has
known of it all along and was not sur
prised, in fact, he has known, that Mr.
Mulkey has been very - active in the
matter, for several weeks past. He does
not regret Mr. Mulkey 'a having entered
the race, for he says that, it is' every
body 'a right, neither does he think that
his (Harris') interests will be injured
in the least thereby. He recognizes in
Hon. Binger Hermann his strongest op
ponent in that with him he will have
his hardest battle, !
"I left Eugene yesterday, Tuesday,
and have had talks with people from
nearly every part of the district since,
principally though in Lane, Linn, Mar
ion and Polk counties, and I must re
peat, from what conclusions that I can
deduct at this time, which yon realize
must of necessity be very vague, my
candidacy is being received favorably
and I am well pleased with the outlook
up to date. Another thing; which I have
noticed and which, gives me pleasure is
the fact that the older generation of
voters is taking a great deal of interest
in my candidacy and this I think is
quite significant since it has been said
that Mr. Hermann would receive all of
the support of the older electors.
"One thing that strikes me as being
very funny, which I have observed
elosely since I have announced my ean
didaey, ami that is that many of those
who were urging me to enter the race
a year ago and were the! strongest ex
ponents of the issue th Oregon now
needed younger men in Congress, men
who would go there ami remain and de
velop strength with each succeeding
year of his service, have some w cat
changed their views upon this score
and think that it is well enough to
have an older man in Congress, but if
one is observing enough it is easy to
perceive their motive in thus so sud
denly changing their views. The fact is
these parties, while they are not candi
dates at this time, have their eyes upon
the office or future aspirations in that
line and they think, very properly, too,
that their hopes wiTl stand a letter
chance of being realized with a com
paratively older man as opponent, and
with a vouneer man in the position
they think their hopes would go a
glimmering,, especially if, the younger
man" develops the strength that is ex
pected of bim.
'Another argument that l hear is
being made against me is that 1 was
in favor. of Mr. Hermann one year ago,
and that I favored his candidacy and
I have heard that it has been asked
what has changed my opinion since
then,- and whv is not Mr. Hermann as
good now as he was then. This is very
easilv answered and I -think that the
majority of the voters of the district
will agree with me-if they are honest
ia the matter, and that is that it was
tbouirht then that, as he claimed, Mr.
Hermann had a great deal of influence
with the present administration, was a
Iersonarfricnd of Mr. Cannon, Speaker
of the Ilenae f Representatives, nd
that Mr. Cannon1 would not annoance
his stand iag eommittee until he had
heard from Mr. Hermann, in order that
he could place' him where he could do
the most good if or hi constituent.
Like the majority of the people who
advocated Mr Hermann's nomination
and voted for him at the election. I be
lieved the most I of this and thought
that Mr. Hermann was the best man we
could send tc( Congress, but be had not
been there IdngWtil it was very plain
to be seen that he was sot in harmony
with the administration, at least to the
extent that be claimed; he did not get
upon a ay of the important eommittee
that he expected to, and, in fact, has
done nothiBir to ' entitle ntm to a re
election. When one takes all of these
thine 4nto consideration it is sot a
wonder that the opinion of the people
should take a different view of the
matter to which they entertained one
year ago." t .'

A sensation is on at the University

six young men disguised as women,
witnessed the girls' Freshmenophor

gymnasium. To the roan tip a tree of
common sense it is difficult to see the
difference between basket ball playing
before six young men and the two
young men who train them and al
ways appearj in the photographs of the
various teams. But, be this as it may,
when the girls, themselves, realize that
there should be no difference in their
deportment when playing in practice or
before their girl friends, and playing
before the public, then the manly man
