WILL R. KINO AT SALEM.
The Senator From Baker County Well
Received at the' Capital.
Senator King of Baker county, was
given a most hearty and cordial re
ception atSalem, Tuesday. He could
not go two blocks on tbe streets In
less than three hours. It was a con
tinuous ovation from personal friends
of all parties.
Mr. King really came tto Salem to
complete the proper lillng of the state
ticket of tbe Silver andReform forces,
and this was satisfactorily completed
before he did any visiting.
ne was Introduced to hundreds of
Salem people In the afternoon and
his time was taken with other lawyers
untlf a late hour at night considering
the law points raised about filing tbe
nominations. He was unable to at
tend the South Salem Bimetallic
club meeting for that reason.
Mr. King will be In Salem again,
when the campaign is more fully en
tered upon, and the intention is to
meet a many people Jas possible loan
The Statesman Ignored the presence
of Hon. Will R. King In this city. He
was not even "given the cuilomary
courtesy of a personal item. The Re
publican managers do not like the
way King Is received by all classes of
people and hardly know what to do to
check the tidal wave of good will and
friendly feeling shown toward tbe
young leader from east of ithe moun
tains. Tbe Man From Ireland.
William C. Dayles, tbe famous
Irish story teller with Jerome's Her
ald Square comedians in their latest
laughing success, "A Jay Iff New
York," is without doubt one of the
fastest talkers today on the American
stage. It is impossible for him to
talk slow; nature timed him to go
sixty miles an hour, and be is always
strictly true to time, ne is always In
nigh spirits, always traveling at a
break neck pace, and be tumbles one
good 6lory on top of another so quickly
that you arc always wondering what
is coming next. Then too he has a
pecular appreciation of things funny
he has humor that takes hold of
small things be will work round on
trlylal points that other people would
pass unnoticed, and he will dwell
upon and develop that point until
what was originally a side Issue, turns
out to be an immense big joke. Opera
bouse tomorrow night.
