The prohibitionists of Silverton
"ratify" the nomination of Fisk and
Ed Abbey's Loss.
The following will be of interest to
the many friends of Ed Abbey in
this city. It is from the Yaquina
Pest: "Ed Abbey and Sir. Larsen,
of San Diego, California, arrived
here last week and arc visiting their
friends and acquaintances on the
bay. Mr. Abbey, who had been
engaged in the resturant business in
San Diego, had the misfortune to
lose his entire outfit by fire, a week
or two ago. As fortune (good busi
ness sense) would have it, however,
he had a fair insurance on the
property destroyed, and can resume
business again when he gets through
yisitiug. Reports times lively and
plenty of money in California."
A number of prohibitionists as
sembled in the rooms of the W. C.
T. IT. last evening to arrange for a
Fisk and Brooks ratification. Mr.
J. W. Webb gave an interesting re
port of his visit as a delegate to the
prohibition convention at Indianap
olis. He represented the third par
ty making rapid progression in the
northwestern states, and gave a very
encouraging view of the situation.
Ou motion a committee of five was
appointed to arrange the details, of
the ratification with instructions to
report to the next regular meeting
of the club on Monday next. The
following is the committee, Dr. Wy
att, W. P. Johnson, Prof. Randall,
Mrs. W. H. Osborn and Mrs. W.K.

Tile jolly burglar is again abroad
in the land. Sunday morning, they
entered Keller & Bon's store through
the transom over the rear door, and
took about 0 in cash and a lot of ci
gars and tobacco. They evidently

unsuccessful. There must have been
several of them, and the one who
entered the store through the tran
som opened the door to the rest.

What Seerctary ilcBride Sajs of It.
The writer asked Secretary of
Statu McBride this afternoon re
garding the capitol grounds, and as
to whether he thought they ought
to be extended.
"If we ever finish the capitol
building," he answered, "tho state
should have those grounds iu order
to show off tho building, well."
Mr. McBride said that tho last
legislature made an appropriation
for the improvement of the capitol
building, and grounds, but that
none of the amount had been ex
pended on the grounds, because if
work wero to be commenced on the
dome, teams, wagons, workmen,
etc., would soon destroy any work
that might have been accomplished.
Ho says, though, that the next
legislature will probably increase
tho appropriations already made,
and if Willson's avenue were to be
turned over to the state, it could be
greatly improved next year.
Secretary McBride favors tho plan
suggested by the Joubnai. yester
day, and promises his aid to accom
plish tho end, if it is desired to have

City Times says of It. "Soap Bubble
is one of tho most taking nonsensi
cal creations of the day. It is well
supplied with popular music, and
when the humor lags horse play
steps in to keep the ball a-rolllug.
Last night's performance was at
tended by a good sized and appre
ciative audience. Mr. Farron was as
mirth-provoking as ever, possibly
moro so, and his songs wero never
better received. Miss Dolly Foster
is as piquant as a pinch of snufi'.and
though her voice Is not of the most
powerful, her vivacity and mimetic

deficiency in tho vocal lino. She

Anniversary of the Silverton Sccnlar
Union Notes in General.
The Silverton Secular Union cole
brated the first anniversary of their
organization, at City park Saturday.
At an early hour peoplo could bo
seen coming into town in largo num
bers from all directions, and by nine
o'clock fully ono thousaud had ar
rived and were scattered over the
city, giving it quite an animated ap
pearance. About ten o'clock the
Silverton Trombone band trppeared
on the street and after playing sev
eral fine selections marched to the
grove, adjoining the public school
grounds, where a large crowd of
people had already congregated, aud
preparations made for carrying out
the advertised program.
Tlie exercises commenced by tlie
baud rendering two selections. A
choir, composed of Mrs. Fitzgerald,
Miss Allen, the Misses Cliui and
Misses Ramsby, Allen and Fulk,
witli Miss Wolf at the organ, then
sang "Tho Old, Old Home," in a
very creditable manner.
Dr. J. W. McClure next introduc
ed Mr. S. P. Putman, president of
the American Secular Union, who
delivered an address upon "Tho
Dangers Ahead," which was well
received by tho audience. He spoke
until about one o'clock, when after
listening to another selection by tho
band, the assembly adjourned until
two p. m.
At tho time appointed the audi
ence was called to order and after a
selection by tho baud, Prof. T. J.
McClary, of the otayton Secular
Union, delivered a pleasing address.
The choir folllowed this with a
song, "I'm Waiting Love for Thee."
Next on tho program was a
declamation by Miss Hill, of Inde
pendence, entitled "Nameless"
which was well executed.
"Villago in tlie Vale" was then
sang by tho choir.
The eight-year old daughter of
Dr. Mattison, of Aumsville, favored
the audience with a recitation, and
showed precocious talent. Several
five minute speeches wero then de
livered by different orators, when
the band played another selection.
Tlie choir then ended the program
by singing "Balmy and Soft."
This ended the exercises of tho
Secular Union and its members
vacated the platform and Clark
Braden of Ohio occupied somo time
iu answering Mr. Putman's speech.
During the afternoon several foot
races wero run by peoplo who con
sidered themselves "flyers."
In tho evening a dance was given
by the Secular Union, in their hall,
over Wolford's store, and about
soventy-fivo couples stepped with
measured tread to tho music fur
nisTied by tlie Silverton orchestra.
Taking it as a whole it was a day
that will long bo remembered by
those fortunate enough to be in
Several parties from the eas t were
in town last week looking for prop

Salem attended the picnic Saturday
and several remained for the dance.

The kidney poison is accumulating
in tho blood. Tonics won't do any
good, they simply treat ell'ects. You
can only secure a radical, thorough
renovation of tho system by the
prompt use of Warner's safe Curo,
which is tho only-reliable, scientific
specific for tho blood, because it is
tho only known specific in tho world
for tho kidneys, which are tho only
great blood purifiers.

Cleveland, O., Ex-Deputy Sheriff, from
urio acid poisoning of the blood becamo,
at times totally blind, and was troubled
with jjroat giddinoss. In 1882. after
suffering for many years, nnd being dis
tressed beyond measure, ho thoroughly
purified his blood by means of Warners
Safe Cure, and says. "I havo never
had a day s troubln since, and havo
fully recovered my health. Warner's
Safe Cure saved my life."
KEV. J. 1. ARNOLD, of Camdon,
Tonn., in 78 nnd '81 was grievously
afflicted with many abscesses, caused by
kidney poisoned blood. Tho nbscessos
wero alive for many months and caused
great distress. After thoroughly purify
ing his blood with Warner's Snfe Curo
in 18S2, he reported that in 1SS8 he was
strong nnd well, over 71 years of age,
nnd able to preach regularly.
OAPT. W. D. KOUINSON, Unltod
States Marino Inspector for tho chain
of lakes, residence Buffalo, N. Y., In
18S1 had a slight eruption on his hands.
It soon spread to his face nnd he was al
most blind. His body wns covered with
light, flaky scales. Ills skin itched ex
cruciatingly. For two years he gradually
grew worse, trying almost everything
imaginable. In 1883, after having
given up hope of recovery, ho began
using Warner's Safo Curo. "Twonty
bottles," he says, "completely curod me,
and to-day I am strong and well as
