The vot ers can take ample time to study the measures submitted to the people. A safe rule, which in recent years tho voters of Oregon have followed. Is ti vote "NO" when in doubt. A sufoi rule, however, would be to gut the measure to be voted upon, study it thoroughly and then cast an intelli gent vote. E. I. Ihillogh end family arrived from Ottumwa, Iowa, lust Friday night, and each of them, even the "littlest" Ballagh were mighty glad to get back to St. Helens.

Beaver Falls has a registration of 17 and at the primary eloctlon. they voted against White, bo it Is hardly probable they will endorse him at the coming eloctlon.

I The two precincts In Clatskanlo, j which have 386 rcglutered votes, will,! of course, give the home men a hand-J some majority, and it is a wide guess: as to which of the other candidates' will gain second honor. j Marshland has 72 registered voter and Conyers will have the majority. In the Nehalem, Conyers will bo first with Fullerton second, This Is the opinion of several well Informed men In that section. MlBt has 201' registered voters and Vernonia, 277. Coming back towards this end of the county, we have Yankton and j Spltzonborg. Judging from the primary, White should carry Spltzen berg, but it is a question If he will! ohtuin a majority la. Yankton. In both of these precincts there are a number ot democrats who will stand, by Fullerton and in the Yankton 1 neighborhood there are many Con-, yers supportors, so U is a difficult' matter to make anything like an accurate estimate. j Taking the whole matter Into con-: sideratlon, 'it apporrs that the votu' In this end of the county will be' pretty well divided botweeu Fuller-! ton and White with Conyers recelv-J ing a substantial voto, nnd In tho: lower end of the county. It appears as If Conyers will be the high man.
