Do the people of Oregon City realize what it will mean to

It means the expenditure of half a million dollars of money

It means that a large force will be employed there all the

THE ENFRANCHISEMENT OF SENATOR McGINN.
The Oregonians' treatment of Henry E, McGinn is to be
Because he made a speech in opposition to the Oregonian's
pet hobby of an assembly his remarks are excluded.
Pages are given to Senator Fulton, with whom it happens
to agree at present; but no pictures, headlines, or space
'for poor Henry McGinn!
Senator and judge, scholar and .orator, friend, adviser,
wd tenant of the Oregonian, the eloquent lawyer dares to
'have an opinion, and he is disgraced.
Senator McGinn has developed into a substantial citizen,,
as" ho was always an able lawyer and brilliant public speak
er, He has become a man of standing, character and stabil
ity, and has workod out his own salvation and has become
an enfranchised republican.
Ho can go before the people of Oregon with clean hands
and a clear concience, and they will listen to him,
. He has cast his influence on the side of progress for
cleaner politics and better methods, and more manhood,
Let others sigh to return to the fleshpots of corruption;
Henry McGinn will eat lentils with the common people.
He passed through the maelstrom and whirlpool of leg

HELD RESPONSIBLE -
IF OREGON GOES WET
Some of the newspapers of the
Btate havo been giving Col. Hofer, of
the Salem Capital Journal credit for
producing the rain which fell in
abundance during the latter part of
October and early In November. It
is said that Hofer prayed for rain.
Whether it is such a rare thing for
Hofer to indulge in prayer, or wheth
er his prayers are so efficacious it
not stated, but the fact has been fre
quently mentioned, and It is certain
that rain came. Now It occasionally
hapepns that there is too much of
even a good thing, and some people
began to think that this was the
cas ewith tho rain. Just at this time
It. II. Clow, of Mapleton, bethought
himself that It was a good time to go
out duck hunting; when, lo, and be
hold! tho clouds vanished and not a
drop of rain fell for several days.
Mr. Clow states that it always turns
out that way when he goes hunting.
Now if these men can just be ipduced
to work together, this county would
certainly have a cinch on the rain
fall. If Hofor will produce the rain
when necessary, It Is quite probable
that Mr. Clow can bo persuaded to
take a hunting trip occasionally, if
he thinks the ground is becoming too
moist, and in this way maintain a
happy medium to suit all parties.
