Mitchell ;Governor Chamberlain an nounced the appointment this morn ing at 10 o'clock. In making the. selection, Gover nor Chamberlain went carefully ov er the indorsements that had been submitted to bim by friends of sev eral1 other candidates, many of whom received flattering report. "What attitude will you take re garding the land fraud cases, Mr. Gearin?" was one of the first ques tions.- - . "J am lully in accord with the president in his efforts : to suppress fraudulent conversion of the public domain' came the quick response. l am also fully in accord with the president in his effort to control the Die, corporations, i and bring their operations within the pale, of the law. ; I believe he:, should , be aided in stopping those rebates and whatever excesses have grown up in the incomparable development ot resources and transportation fa cillties. His views on these subjects are good, sound democratic doctrine. Because a republican president aids in carrying ont democratic princi ples h no reason why democratic 'championship of them should not foliow. ' No one need ask me about state i.'orovements. I am an Oreeonian &rUtsd resid-ene. . Eyexythwg that I can do for JOregon, 'in any station of life, will always be done Senatorial powers open broader op portunities for this woik, and I will not miss them. I will work for all of Oregon, Coos Bay, Yaquina and the Columbia are parts of the same state. Other improvements of what ever nature will be sought wherever possible." John M. Gearin is thoroughly identified with Oregon. He Was born August 15, 1851, while the family neared the territory. Where the old immigrant trail crossed the Umatilla, at a point now known as Willow Springs, with the bleakness of a parched plain as his first vista and the alkali duet in the air that first reached his nostrils, his life be gan. The family was delayed brief ly there and soon reached Champo- eg, taking a donation land claim on the banks of the Willamette, in Marlon county. Two brothers grew to manhood. One, named Hugh, has never left the homestead, but yet cultivates the Gearin farm which the ancestor acquired under the ear liest laws of Oregon territory. John M. was a Btudeut not a farmer. He attended St. Mary's college, San' Francisco, in 186.-;, staying there for four years. Notre Dame univers ity, Indiana, was the next step. He graduated. in 1871. In January, 1872, a slender young man entered the law office of Mitch ell and D ilph in Portland to wres tle with Blackstone. Two years la ter he was admitted to the Oregon bar. Thirty-three years later this same person succeeded the senior member of the law firm in the Unit ed States senate. - "It is rather sad, these -changes in time. - I remember when I en. tered that law office and began my studies. "My early life, in fact all my life has been quiet and uneventful," modestly insisted the new senator this morning. "I have been in pub lio to some extenf, but hot in any large measure. My first office was as a member of the Oregon legisla ture, received in i874. They elect ed me city attorney in 1875, district attorney in I884, and I was defeat ed for congress in 1888., My op ponent in that contest waB Binger Hermann now in congress." "As the accredited representative of this state for the interim, 1 real ize mat 1 have oeen chosen to ao its work, for that period; until anoth er senator may be chosen .- in the regular, order -of things, t j recog nize the fact that my . indorsements came from every class, especially among the business men, and in my work I shall endeavor to serve all. I will utilize my time for the very bests interests of Oregon." Elkton, Ky., Deo. 12. The to bacco factory here owned by Mrs. M. H. Penyck and operated for the tobacco trust by the American Snuff Company as blown up by dyna mite early today. There. waB no loss of life, but the damage to the factory was complete. There was no insurance on the plant, as the insurance company had only a few days ago canceled the policy, owing to the excitement occasioned in this locality by the tactics of some of the members of the Cark Tobacco-Grow ers Association. Several houses in the vicinity were damaged, as were the depot and four or five passen ger coaches standing on the siding. Boston, Dec. 12. The democrats were victorious in Boston today, electing ex-Congressman John F. i itzeerald mayor over three other candidates. Fitzgearld's plurality over his nearest competitor, Louis A: Frothingham, republican speak er of the Massachusetts bouse of representatives, was 8330.

Mitchell were held in the First Congregational church this af ternoon.

The first matter to come before the fed eral jury is the issues of fact between the government aod the packers on the assertions by the latter that they were promised immunity and the denial by the government that any such pledges were ever made. The. actual trial of the packers will not commence until this matter baa been disposed of. Commissioner Garfield of the bu reau of corporations and labor was the first witness to appear in the district attorney's office. He refus ed to discuss the subject, saying that he had reserved all his testimo ny for the court. The work of em paneling the jury commenced at 10: i5 o'clock. Attorneys consumed a large part of the-morning arguing the propo sal that each be given a separata trial on each indictment, which would necessitate 2I different ju ries. The judge said that two or more robbers having broken into a postoffice could be tried together, and the defendants objected, saying there was no analogy.
