Tho (11 lng of a complaint by State Inspector V. E. Cattorlln ngalnst tlvro of the local grocers Thursday for handling ''Hnxelwood ' butter Improperly la- boled, kindled new Interest In tho fight between tho Ashland creamery and tho grocers. Attorney E. D, Briggs filed a demurrer on behalf of the grocers, which demurrer was over ruled yesterday by Judgc Eggleston and the case was set for the 27th. . D. Perozzl, proprietor of the Ash land creamory, who for several years past has had a monopoly on Impos lng bad butter upon the local consit' mors, Is much dated over tho crimp that has been put in his competition from the big Portland creamery. Hav ing pleaded guilty to n charge of sell lng "phoney" butter under his "Gold Medal" labels and paid n fine only two weeks ago, ho Is naturally pleas- -cd to havo some other concern put In his class. Ho has turned over a new leaf, temporarily at least, and is sell ing good butter In full weight squares in an endeavor to regain thc respect of this community. Tho local meat markets were also fined for adulterating lard and are getting even with tho public by boost ing the price of meat. The last raise was four cents a pound, which puts meat too high for any but creamery men, grocers and butchers to havo It oftener than once a week. What Ash land needs Is an independent general market. ROOSEVELT RECEIVES BLACK BALL IN PARIS PARIS, Dec. 18.

GREAT ACTIVITY IN BLUE LEDGE DISTRICT All of the Claims Are Being Worked Splendid Showing is Made. Sir. and Mrs. Frank E. Edwards of Eileen, Calif., nre in Medford doing Christmas shopping. Mr. Edwards has been engaged in tho mercantile business at Eileen since the camp was first started and is one of the most enthusiastic believers in the big fu ture of the Blue Ledge as one of the biggest copper camps of tho world. "Every holder of claims in the dis trict," says Mr. Edwards, "is work ing out his assessment and thus do ing a good bit more in the wny of de velopment work. Tho miners in that section are not discouraged by any moans. Wo know that tho ore is there and taht ultimately tho camp will be among the leading ones in the country."

During tho past week Elwood & Ben nott report tho sale of four "spark lers," amounting to $1125. Other jewelry sales havo been heavy.

Ho Is tired of tho speakership, and his ambition has been gratified. He has been willing to quit tho chair at that tltno, and I doubt If ho is nnxlous to bo elected to congress for another term." This statement was mado by one of Speaker Cannon's closest friends In tho house, a man who has stood by him ever since coming to congress. He said tho speaker Is tired of tho at tacks that arc being made on him; that ho la displeased with th0 news papers which are criticising him con stantly, and that ho Is tired of be ing made tho butt of all of tho criti cism of the republican party. This friend laughs at tho idea that the speaker will resign. Ho declares that "Uncle Joo" will not quit tho speakership during this congress, but will endeavor to show tho country that the attack on tho organization of the houso Is Idle, and that tho house organization is thc republican organ ization. When vindicated ho will be perfectly willing to retire. Speaker Cannon has served 18 terms In congress, being defeated only once for the Fifty-second congress, when there waa a democratic land slide throughout the country. Ho has been speaker four consecutive terms. a record equaled only by Andrew Ste venson of Virginia. His service as speaker has not been as long as that of Henry Clay of Kentucky, but more continuous. Talk of n Succssor. Already talk of a successor to Speaker Cannon is heard. It is con- ceded that no out and out Cannon i conservatlvo can win, and that a west-1 era man will be picked for tho place. Republican Leader Pavno of Now York would not satisfy tho- insur-' gents. j A compromise candidate for thoi west could be found in Judge Walter Smith of Iowa, a regular who would be acceptablo to many Insurgents who think he would shift his views somewhat If he became speaker. H got several Insurgent votes against Cannon at tho beginning of this con gress. In tho same class is James A. Tawny of Minnesota. Representative Weeks of Massachusetts is strongly! favored and Charles S. Denby of ) Michigan could pick up some cau-i cus votes. J But Just at present tho Insurgents aro more concerned In their fight to beat Speaker Cannon. They havo banded togother to defend themselves from attack. Tho cbargo that they are opposed to tho president's poli cies Is being made, and to state their position they will issuo a broadside soon which will "take tho hide off" "Uncle Joo." The insurgents declaro that they aro Taft republicans, but will be hanged before they will be come Aldrlch-Cannon republicans. Married.
