It Is claimed by some that Mr.
French Is representing the Oregon
Wator Power Company, and that the

Couple Not Married.
Anna Dodder, who was married on,
January 1, 1895, In Linn county, to
George W. Dodder, and within six
months of her divorce from George E.
Flatman, has commenced suit In the
state circuit court to have the mar
riage declared null and void. This Is
because tho statute of Oregon pro
vides that a divorced person cannot
legally marry a third person within
six months of the date of the decree.
Mrs. Dodder obtained a divorce from
Flatman In Marion county, July 11,
1894, and was united to Dodder with
in 10 days of tho six months' limit.
She sets forth In her complaint that
Dodder persuaded" her that she could
lawfully become his wife on January
1, 1895, and consequently she con
sented to have' a marriage ceremony
performed, which Joined them togeth
er on that day. On Juno 7, 1904, she
avers, she ascertained that her mar
riage to Dodder was illegal and re
fused afterwards to ljve with him.
She asserts that Dodder still, claims
her as his wife, but she declines to be
so accopted, and asks tho court for re
lief, otherwise, she says, her Individ
ual property rights will be affected.
When tho last case of this kind was
presented before Judge Cloland, re
lief was denied on tho ground that,
as tho marriage was void, that was
all there was too It. Oregonlan.

nouncod that a strong undercurrent
of sentiment wa3 favorable to an ear

would not be surprised If the busi

as everything Is cut and dried.
Temporary Chairman's Address.
Temporary Chairman Ellhu Rdot de
livered an address which Is tho party
slogan for this campaign. He re
ferred to the responsibility of gov
erning 80,000,000 people resting on the
Republican party. To keep all this
great population active In production
and commerce, social progress and a
standard of moral and Intellectual
life never before attained In tho his
tory of the world was tho problem
before tho national government. In
tho course of tho next administration
the Republican party would pass the
first half century of national llfo. A
renewal of confidence at tho hands of
the people was now asked at tho
hands of tho people because the prin
ciples the party defended were right,
and because the party primarily gave
assurance of good government. Tho
candidates tfiey would present were
men of proved competency and pa
triotism, fitted, to fill tho offices for
which they are nominated to tho
credit and honor of the country. He
reviewed tho achievements of the
past, tho Issues of the present, and
paid a glowing tribute In conclusion
to the characters of McKlnley, Hanna
and Roosevelt, as follews:
As we gather In this convention,
our hearts, go back to tho friend tho
never to, bo forgotten friend, whom
when last we met wo- acclaimed with
one accord as our universal choice to
bear a second time tho highest honor
In tho nation's gift; nnd back still,
memory goe3 through many a year of
leadership and loyalty.
How wise and how skillful ho was!
how modest and self-effacing! how
doep his insight into the human heart!
how- swift the Intuitions of his sym
pathy! how compelling tho charm of
his' gracious presence He was so
unselfish, so thoughtful of tho happi
ness of others, so genuine a lover of
his country and his kind. And ho was
tho kindest and tenderest friend, who
over grasped another's hand. 'Alas,
that his virtues did plead In vain
against cruel fate!
Yot we may rejoice, that while he
lived he, was crownol with, honor;
tfiat tho rancor of party' strffij had
ceased; that success In hla great
tasks, tho restoration of peace, tho ap
proval of his countrymen, tho affec
tion of his friend, gave tho last quiet
months In his home at Canton repose
And with McKlnloy wo remember
Hanna with affection and sorrow his
great lieutenant. They are together
But wo turn, as they would havo us
turn, to tho duties of tho future; wo
turn, as thoy would have us turn, to
prepare oursolvos for the etrugglo
under tho samo standard borno in
othor hands by right of truo inherit
ance. Honor, truth, courage, purity
of llfo, domestic virtue, love of coun
try, loyalty to Tilgh Ideals all thoso
combined with actlvo intelligence,
with learning, with experience In af
faire, with tho conclusive proof of
competency afforded by wise and con
servative administration, by great
things already done and groat results
already achieved all tbeso wo bring
to tho people with another candidate.

these underlie tho fabric of our In
stitutions. Upon hypocracy and
sham, upon cunning and false pro
tense, upon weakness and cowardice,
upon tho arts of the demagogue and
tho devices of tho mero politician
no government can stand. No system
of popular government can endure In
which tho people do not bellevo'and
trust. Our Prosldont has taken tho
whole people Into his confidence. In
capable of deception, ho has put asldo
concealment. Frankly and without
reserve, ho has told them what their
government was doing, and tho rea
sons. It is no campaign of appoar
ancos upon which we enter, for tho
people know tho good and tho bad, tho
success and and! failure, to bo credited
and charged to our account It Is no
campaign of sounding words and spe
cious pretenses, for our President has
told tho people with frankness what
he believed, and what he intonded.
He has meant overy word ho said,
and the people havo believed every
word he said, and with him this con
vention agrees because overy word
has been found Republican doctrine,
No peoplo can maintain free govern

November, God grant that those qual
ities of bravo, true manhood shall
have honor throughout America, shall
bo hold for an example in every home,
and that tho youth of generations to

wealth, or ofllce, or power, to havo the
honesty, tho purity, and the courage
of Theodoro Roosevelt.
